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.

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

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…

Decade end....

Quick question...
Have you reviewed your decade yet?
I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close.
Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :)
Where were you in your business in 2010?
Where are you now?
What did you start?
What did you end?
What investments did you make?
What skill sets did you learn?
What did you miss out on?

I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of. 
Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
