Do as you tell.....

If there's one thing everybody hates, it's a person who talks the talk without "walking the walk."

Are we in agreement here?

It's common knowledge that one shouldn't tell someone to do something that they won't do. That's Credibility......Out.Of.The.Window.

There was once a great teacher, a grandmother & grand child. The grandmother asked the great teacher to tell her grandson to refrain from eating sugar. The teacher responded "Come back in the month." The grandmother did as instructed & returned in a month's time. The teacher politely asked the child to stop eating sugar, the child agreed. All was well.

The grandmother was grateful for the teacher's counsel but politely asked why he made her wait a month. The teacher replied "I cannot tell someone to stop doing something I'm doing. I had to quit eating sugar before I told him to."

That's one helluva example. Do before you tell, act before you preach, and do AS you tell...

Let's get to work.

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
