Maximize the Value of Your Time

Posted · Add Comment

What is more precious than gold but can’t be bought or sold? The answer is time. We all agree that time is precious, but then we spend our lives chasing after an hourly wage, hoping that in a few decades, we’ll still be around to enjoy life in retirement. I’ve got news for you: You’re […]

Checking Out Opportunities

I just got a call from my daughter, who’s graduating college this summer. She has an opportunity to interview at a new restaurant concept and get a job bartending until she finds something in her field… She called me and asked if she should interview for it, as she already has a bartending job in […]

Doing What You Don’t Want To Do

Posted · 1 Comment

When we put time into doing what we don’t want to do, we can get what others (that won’t put that time in) can never get… So we have to do what we don’t want to do, to get what we really want. Usually, the things we don’t want to do involve dealing with other […]

Love is…

Getting along, being successful, living abundantly, having great relationships, inner peace, and that sense of freedom might just all come down to love… If I could (and I can’t), I would write better or different words to describe it, but the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13, nailed it: 4 Love is patient, love is […]

Changes

You want to be successful, you want to have a sense of control over your life and future, and you see more coming in your future. There’s only one way (other than inheritance) to get there… you have to change. First, the logical response: Doing what you have been doing got you right where you […]

Thank You!

“Thank you!” Two POWERFUL words… There are quite possibly hundreds of times a day that you can say “thank you.” I’ve been doing this leadership thing for a long time, I’ve been doing life even longer, and I swear nothing causes a more positive reaction from others than a sincere and specific “thank you.” So […]

Freedom

What would you do if money was not an issue? How would you spend your time? How would you spend that endless amount of money? I believe achieving freedom starts with pondering those questions… Those questions immediately begin to alter your thinking, adjusting your world view and challenging your status quo. In order to get […]

The Pull of Average

Posted · Add Comment

I talk to people everyday that are frustrated, tired, and broke. I present an opportunity that, with consistent effort, can completely change their current situation to one that first gives hope and then can begin to fill the hole of life they have dug for themselves and eventually lead to financial freedom… And yet so […]

Focus

Focus… it’s a process to get great at! So you know what you want, you’ve thought it through, you have a list and you’ve prioritized it. Excellent! You have taken the time to write out those goals/wants/desires and maybe even have reminders everywhere, including taking the time to create a vision board so you can […]

Give Up or Give Up

Posted · Add Comment

You are going to either give up on life (and having life on your terms) or give up stuff that doesn’t get you where you want to go. Dang, it’s those choices again! If you have already given up on life… Stop reading now, return immediately to the couch, and reset yourself to rationalizing away […]
