To solve big problems you have to be willing to do unpopular things

“To solve big problems you have to be willing to do unpopular things.” 

LOU HOLTZ

 

In network marketing, unpopular things that solve problems often involve constructive criticisms.  We must be willing to compassionately coach others in areas they can improve.  But we must also be willing to accept such criticisms ourselves.

THe magic pill

When I was 39 weeks pregnant, I fired my obstetrician because I was pretty sure he was trying to railroad me into a c-section, and I was determined to have a natural birth.

When I was 40 weeks pregnant, my blood pressure started creeping up, and my new doctor grew concerned. At 40 weeks and 4 days, my doctor said he would induce me on the day I got to 41 weeks, because my blood pressure was getting a little higher every day, and he didn’t want to take any chances.

At 40 weeks,…

If you try to prove this one wrong, you are just making more excuses!

“You can make excuses or you can make money, but you can’t make both.” 

PRESLEY SWAGERTY

 

The two will never go together.  And if you try to prove this one wrong, you are just making more excuses!

Draw a line in the sand, as Presley also says.  Stand in the gap for your family.  Get after it today!  If not now, when?

Group Leader
Maybe God Hates My Guts?

Now, let me tell you about last week. I believe I had technology-glitch-galore going on. My hard drive on the computer crashed, and I ended up getting a replacement sent to me. I keep backups so I still had most of my data.

 

Also, my phone went out too! It’s been acting up for several weeks now, and I was trying to hold out for a couple months when I was eligible for a replacement, but it didn’t turnout that way. Now I’m talking on an old LG that I had lying around. I…

The one dollar mistake

I am so convinced that it's the simple things in life that trip us up at times. I'm nerdy and keep a well balanced checkbook. However, I missed writing in a few transactions recently and spent more time than I should have trying to look for the "one dollar mistake". I know how it happened. I didn't stop when I should have. I will never do that again. I know better than that ten times over. Everything ended well, but it…

Gain financial traction by NOT doing something.

Ok, I probably gave it all away in the title, but stay with me.  So many of us are struggling financial, and why?  Most likely because of the things we DO buy, not the things we DON’T buy.  Physically speaking, it’s much easier to not do something then to do something.  Emotionally, it can be very difficult to stop doing something.  I think we haven’t even thought about lots of the things we do and buy and the reasons why.  Perhaps we have been doing them for so long we never even consider…

Failure Is An Event Not A Person

“Remember that failure is an event, not a person” – Zig Ziglar

Everyone fails at one time or another and it can often feel like you will not recover.  How many times have you had the wind knocked out of you because of a “failure” only to discover a little ways down the road it wasn’t so bad?

Would you…

They are the living dead.

Where there is no vision, the people perish. 

PROVERBS 29:18

 

I have grown to love this verse.  I have also come to better understand it.  So many people have settled.  They have traded their vision and their dreams for a life of mediocrity.  They are the living dead.

Absolute Lunacy

We love our absolutes, don’t we?

  • All
  • None
  • Always
  • Never

Absolutes are neat. Tidy. Simple.

They keep us from having to think too much. And we generally like it that way.

If you believe that all Democrats are tax-and-spend liberal elites who are only interested in spending your hard-earned money, then you’re likely to discount anything that any Democrat says.

If you believe that all Republicans are corporate shills who…

Free Publicity: How to make yourself newsworthy

Always fun to be on Free Agent Underground with Kevin Miller.



(Here are some of his show notes and the broadcast. Enjoy.)



Everyone’s focus is ‘online’ and expecting to use social media to ‘go viral’ and gain you tons of exposure. We totally ignore the realities and benefits of local media.

The Bucket List a.k.a The Live-it Up List

I looked up the phrase Bucket List to see how it originated. It's from a movie where the two main characters who are terminally ill make up a list of things they want to do before they "kick the bucket". The movie earned $173 million dollars world wide...so folks want to know about this concept.

 

I've decided to call my list…

New business idea

 Ive read alot in the new about people living in 600sqft homes. Ive got an idea to build small cabins with all amenities. They can be lived in or just used as a weekend retreet. This could make a viable option for people with there own land or family land to live. They will be totally of the grid.  I would really like everyones opinion on this idea. Do you think there would be a real market for this.

Thanks

Not until it is too late?

There is a day 20, 30, 40 even 50 years from today, and it's coming. Remember that big event or vacation you were looking forward to for months or even years? And now it’s over and done with. Remember when you were in high school, and college graduation or your first real job seemed so far away it would never come? And now look, it came and went pretty darn fast. Now it’s just a memory. The future is coming, slowly but surely, it is coming.…

Why can't work be more like life?

I think I live a functioning, well-rounded life but struggle with finding my work equally as functioning.  Dan Miller talks about seven areas of life that we should all be striving for success in:  Spiritual, financial, physical, personal development, social, family, and career.  I feel a certain ease and togetherness when I think of the first six areas of my life but a strain and stress when it comes to work.  I never have felt like I have "taken off" or been in the zone while at the work…
