Afraid of Change

I speak to people now and then who talk about all these dreams they have, how they would like to run their own business, take more vacations, retire early, travel, move into a bigger home, take 3 months and go on a mission trip, etc. – but it all ends up being empty talk. When I speak to them again 6 months, 1 year, 3 years later, they are still…

3 Regrets In My Life

I have lived enough of my life thinking about the past that I will be the first to say that it is a waste of time.  The sooner you let go of the past, the sooner you can get on to living life.  No whining; no bitching; no complaining.  Living life responsibly and to the fullest. With that said, the only reason to think about the past is to teach…

What Business Is Best To Work From Home?

Here we are, mid way through 2009.  Wow!  I get quite a few emails from people about what some of their best options are for starting a business from home.  There are actually quite a few.  Let me list some of them: 1) Landscaping – For about $1,000 start-up (if you already have a truck), begin making about $100-$200 per day net.  It’s hard work, but cutting about 3-5 yards…

Why I Don’t Twitter and Facebook

I must get dozens of emails per week about following someone on Twitter or joining as a friend on Facebook.   I don’t have a Twitter account and I no longer have a Facebook account.  If you listen to some people, they would say I am stupid, crazy, and insane not to have a Twitter account where I could get thousands of people to follow me. I closed my Facebook account…

What’s Up For 2009??

I have been spending quite a bit of time thinking and planning for the new year… 2009.  There’s lots to consider, and much to be hopeful about.  One thing is for sure.  I never felt better about my decision to be doing what I am doing on the Internet than I do right now. After spending time with different family and friends over Christmas, hearing about layoffs at their jobs,…

McCain or Obama – Does It Really Matter?

I have mentioned before that in the grand scheme of things, Americans are putting WAY TOO MUCH emphasis on the outcome of this election.  Why? Because in the larger picture, no one president (even with a majority in the house or senate) can control your life… for the good or bad.  I am 100% behind McCain and Palin.  100%.  But, that doesn’t mean I am putting my hope in them. …

Success Diminishes Opportunities

I don’t know how many of you saw the Warren Buffett interviews this last weekend.  I didn’t watch all of them, but I was able to see enough to impress me with the wisdom this man has.  While I am not all about worshipping the wealthy, there are a few people that are worth your attention when they speak because, generally, their wisdom goes beyond just making a buck… it…

Robert Kiyosaki’s Financial IQ

To continue with the theme from the previous post, you HAVE to get yourself involved in personal development and training.  I picked up a copy of Robert Kiyosaki’s “Increase Your Financial IQ”  I’ve always like the whole Rich Dad series of books.  I’ve been waiting for the next release, and so far, about half way through the book, I’ve got to say, this is a must read.  Go out and…
