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.

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…
