Perspective...

It's funny when you post something about working hard or making some money on social media and a couple of random trolls will say things like "life's about more than making money", or "spending time with family and creating memories is what life is really all about"..."money is the root of all evil".....or my all time favorite "You know its harder for a rich man to get into heaven than a camel through the eye of a needle!" Funny thing is they're usually the first ones asking to hold a little something! 


Let's get right to it. We have to change our perspectives about work and money. I think it's foolish to act like we don't need it one second and have to scrape it up the next. It doesn't make sense to condemn money and work as evil when you need it pay your bills. Let's not pretend a few extra zeros in your bank account right now could solve a couple of problems for you. Our relationship with these two concepts will shape a lot of what we do and see on a daily basis.

Working hard is a GOOD thing, especially if you're working hard at the right things! Money is an idea related to resources. Let's be real. Who doesn't want to have more resources? I thought so.

When did we become so politically correct that it becomes a negative thing to say you want to work hard in order to make enough money to live your dreams? Nobody is saying not to live life to the fullest or make your family a priority, but I believe that is your personal responsibility to become successful in all areas of your life........ including your finances. Being broke sucks...I know, I've been broke and I've been well off and I'll take well off any day the week....and twice on Sunday !  

You want to just "get by?"…  You want to be average?… You want to vacation every three years at the cheapest motel available? 

Go for it! 

 but that's not the lifestyle I want for me and my family.

They deserve the best...and so do you. 

I hope you can see it. Most of all, I hope you'll work for it. 

To your dreams.

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…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
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
