Complacency is Cancer

growing a business

Take a moment of self-reflection. How do you take in information? Do you absorb it? Do you read it and think to yourself that you need to do it? Then a few seconds later the dog barks and you need to take him out - then the thought is lost? Do you revisit it? Do you just move on? The entrepreneur that thrives in today's world is the one that admits they're guilty of being complacent and creates systems in their business (and lives) to defuse it.  They know that the key to growing a business … [Read more...]

walls2

I get the pleasure of working with entrepreneurs every day. I've worked with some that have experienced huge success and I've also worked with some that just couldn't get it together. Over the years I've learned the traits that divide. It's not whose the prettiest or the smartest, those assets don't have a lot weight in the entrepreneurial game. It's the behaviors and mindsets of the individuals that separate. Some entrepreneurs are successful at creating the behaviors that equal success … [Read more...]

Being able to persuade others is critical to an entrepreneur's success.

There's one thing that separates mediocre entrepreneurs from very successful ones - it's called mindset. Very successful people have mindsets that lead them to prosperity and pushes them to out perform others. It doesn't matter how attractive  you are, how smart you are, that you have a fancy education, or even came from a rich family - none of those things matter if you don't have the mindset of success. These days so many people are just looking for a quick way to make a buck so they can … [Read more...]

Entrepreneurs Who Chase Dollars

The first morning I woke up as an entrepreneur is something I'll never forget. It was about 4 a.m. in the morning, the house was all quiet, and I was thinking to myself, I don't have a real job. I got up and paced the floor with one word in my head, foreclosure. I think back to that time and I was either running around like a chicken with my head cut off OR I was frozen.  Needless to say neither of those functions make for a profitable business so I've had my fair share of mishaps. Mishaps … [Read more...]
