Skills pay the bills!

Lemme ask you...

Do you ever wish life was a little easier?

I did.

I clearly remember the days (in fact many of them) when I would crash on my bed in exhaustion.

Totally defeated. Feeling like a complete failure.

Because nothing would go right. Business deals went south. People wouldn't do what they said they would do... 

I'd lie there staring at the ceiling, wrestling with these thoughts...

Am I crazy for being an entreprenuer?

Should I just call it quits, and settle for a job with a salary and benefits?

I have a degree...how much Is that worth? 

Do I really want to go around with a resume saying Pick Me..Pick Me?

WHY can’t this business thing be any easier?


Then, after I was done feeling sorry for myself, I would hear uncle Jim.... Jim Rohn…

“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills.”

I don't know how many times I've heard this quote. 

 Hundreds. 

And finally, that’s exactly what I did.

Acquired new skills.

Made myself better.

And MASSIVE results followed soon thereafter.

If things in your business aren’t going exactly as you were planning, or have hoped they would, here's the best thing you can do...

Get some new skills that will produce the kind of results you desire.

After all...skills pay the bills!

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…
