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!

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…
