Think you're pretty tough?



Think you're pretty tough? 

Try starting and running your own business.... AND actually living off of the proceeds. Then, make it past two years. After that, three, then ten....

 We'll see how tough you are then. 

Imagine doing what you do for a living now, for yourself, with your own money.

Facts are facts. Most won't make it their first year, they'll run back home to mommy or a cubicle. Whichever comes first.         

Don't read me wrong, this won't be a bashing blog.  I'm not talking down to anyone, I'm talking up the real deal soldiers. Soldiers you say Meek? Yes SOLDIERS, because business is a fight! The fight of your life! 

Business owners build their dreams and provide opportunity to others. Keep in mind, all of this is in addition to overcoming the same struggles everyone else has also, tis life.  

Business owners tend to wear many hats, this week our hats are off to you. The economy tries to crush you and depend on you at the same time. You don't get enough credit. You don't have business hours, you have  business. You're the backbone of this country. You dream, you struggle, work, and eventually you get the victory. 

I hope this inspires you to look at small business guys and gals as the warriors they are. Salute to all the owners and owners to be on this National Small Business Week and every other week! 

The best has yet to come!

Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!
