Flaky people make my ass itch!

Flaky people.

Few things get under my skin more than unreliable people.

You know, those who don't follow through on what they've promised.

Or don't show up for a call or a meeting at a time you've scheduled.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've been stood up.

So how do you deal with such a person?

The best way is...

You DON'T!

Fuck those people! 

Hey I understand something can come up. People get busy. Emergencies happen.

And long ago I used to have a "3 strike rule" about it.

Three strikes, and you're OUT.

But I realized in the world of business, where your word is your bond, there's simply no room for people like this.

So it's become "one strike and you're out" for me.

It's just too damn much mental energy dealing with people who don't do what they say they're going to do.

Sadly, our world is FULL of them.

And if you want to build a kick-butt team of entrepreneurs, and do it with the least amount agony and frustration...

Cut people like this loose. And do it fast.

Commit to only dealing with responsible and dependable adults.

I know, they're a rare breed.

Your time is too valuable to deal with flaky people!

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
