What is your Why? What is your calling? What are you passionate about? What is your purpose here? Or could you be looking for attraction influence?

My wife and I have asked ourselves these questions so many times that we know the questions by the number of letters in the sentence. Every time you hear a success guru talk about building a business, online or offline, they tell you to know your WHY. You have to have a driving reason in order to succeed. We didn’t have one and we didn’t know why.

What is a Why? A why could be health, family, finances, parents education, child abuse prevention and the list goes on and on. A why is something that keeps you awake at night and have you excited to get up in the morning. You are obsessed with it. You just can’t stop thinking about it. You move towards it every day.

Your why is tied directly to passion and purpose for your life’s calling. Your why is your gift from God. Be grateful if you can identify, visualize and act on your why. Many can’t and most won’t give it a second thought, if they ever had the first. Continue Reading

Hey You! Baby boomer … why are you here?

We are part of an explosive generation that is coming into our sunset years. Many of us have little or nothing to show for all the hard work we have done over the years. Our retirement accounts, 401k and pensions are struggling to keep up. Most of the accounts have lost 30, 40 maybe 50% of the value since 2001 and after.

So what are you going to do? How will you make up the difference so you can retire some what comfortably? Will you be able to retire?

First of all you have to take responsibility for your current finances. You made the choices or chose not to make the choice and let someone else invest for you.  Your account is sucking Continue Reading

Procrastination is a killer.

Procrastination can kill just about any worthwhile endeavor. It will kill your business, personal accomplishments, the time with family and anything even slightly rewarding. Unfortunately, we all have tendencies to postpone things until later. I have slipped under this burden many times and it is a constant challenge for me to focus on being productive.

Sometimes, I catch myself on Facebook making comments to friends and or very distant relationships, thinking that I am creating a dream. That I am cultivating more business. That these comments are going to add bundles of cash to my bottom line when they by an affiliate product or two. Really, I am just surfing the web, creeping around on Facebook as my kids say, Continue Reading

Something smells fishy and distasteful about MLM. Do you smell that?

For years people have had a bad taste for MLM, multilevel marketing, network marketing, a pyramid scheme, or whatever you want to call it. Why? There are several reasons and many are no more than a buyers remorse frame of mind. “They” said it would be easy!

Back in the early 80’s when I was first exposed to the industry, we were excited, we thought we were going to make a gazillion bucks and live in paradise. We went to all the local meetings, in home meetings, listened to as many tapes as we could get our hands on, traveled to the large functions and made a lot of friends. The gazillion bucks Continue Reading

That’s right!  I don’t set goals anymore and you shouldn’t either.

I have studied business mentor, self made billionaire, Bill Bartmann, who teaches that goals are too easily missed. Bartmann teaches to make promises instead of goals. When most of us make a promise, we keep it. We promise all sorts of things and won’t let the person we promise down. A promise is a commitment, it’s our word and from childhood we were taught, we must keep our promises.

Every year brings on new goals, new resolutions, they may not actually be new but we reset for another year and by January 15th most have already broken the resolution and are off track on the goals. We use the calendar to start over again and to give Continue Reading
