Business success and failures are many and contradictory. What may work for you would often not work for everyone. But, there are common entrepreneur mistakes that almost everyone makes.
Here are (3) three to avoid:

Every business owner strives to fulfill their vision of growing into something bigger. Big profit, big office, or a big team, we equate bigger with better and better with success.

It wasn’t that long ago when it seemed like it was necessary to have a PhD in order to program the remote. I remember thinking I had recorded some show only to discover I had failed to do step 7 of the 16 steps required to record it. Now it’s just a matter of pushing the button or just telling it to do whatever you want it to. (Love the Genie in the remote!)
Fortunately the days of needing 5 different remotes and 9 different devices to just plan a playlist are long over. Technology…Continue

The post title is a quote from John Maxwell who appeared on Dave Ramsey's radio show on Friday, November 14. It's a powerful warning against complacency. I've seen great people implode after years of success, blinded by a sense of invincibility. Coming from a military background, we studied a concept called the…Continue
If I were to tell you that to truly move forward in your life, all you had to do was move the ugly parked car in front of you, would you move it?
Most would say Duh! Of Course! How silly! But most of us do not move, no matter what. We don’t see that dirty car in our path that keeps us stuck in the mud of life.
Most of our lives, however, do move freely except in one or two key areas where we seem have a resistance or a different take on a Neil Diamond song, “I’m stuck forever…Continue
Your thoughts matter. If you are hitting a certain plateau in your business or personal life it is most likely a “thinking” problem.
You need to be willing to do, say, and behave the way successful people do. You need to be willing to stretch out of your own comfort zone.

This week James Divine shared his incredible story and message of finding forgiveness. If you know anyone who has suffered a traumatic childhood or any abuse in their lives, this would be a great show to share. For others of us who have not been affected by such abuse, it is a great show to listen to as I think we will all gain empathy for those who have gone through such traumatic experiences.…Continue

One of the ways we use to avoid our problems was to stay busy. When our finances fell apart, our family was booked back to back every night of every week of endless activities. It was almost as if we were escaping our realities if we just crammed one more thing on top of our already busy schedule.
