The Celebration Should Never End

The Celebration Should Never End

Preserving your independence is about taking responsibility for it.  It’s unfortunate that it gets just this one day each year to put everything in perspective. You celebrate your birthday once a year but never stop improving your life, reflecting on where you are, and being grateful for all you have. The same should go for […]

Use it or Lose it

Here we are at the perfect moment to serve as your reflection point of your year:  July 1, 2020.  Doesn’t it feel like this year has lasted 9 or 10 months already?  Yet, we have only arrived at the half way mark. This midpoint comes exactly where it should each and every year: the week of celebration and […]

You Pick: Sales Creation or Sales Prevention – Part 3

You can probably sense my frustration here.  I hope you feel the same.  If you walk around and observe, you see most people acting helpless, wandering around like zombies as though they are under a trance. You don’t have to follow suit.  The key word there was people acting – not actually in fact helpless. Fortunately, my Doctors […]

You Pick: Sales Creation or Sales Prevention – Part 2

Last week, we talked about the Sales Prevention Department and how this is running wild these days.  It’s bad enough with all the government mandates and then on top of that business owners forgetting the point of what they are there to do. Now, to be fair, usually it’s big dumb corporations that are so far […]

You Pick: Sales Creation or Sales Prevention – Part 1

One of my mentors, Bill Glazer, use to write an article that gave examples of what he called “The Sales Prevention” Department.  It was always intriguing to see just how oblivious people are when it comes to the art of taking care of others in the context of a business. There is, without question, more money […]

The Formula To Finish The Year On Top

Here are the facts… 2020 is not even half over.  There is more to come than what has already passed.  It’s not time to throw in the towel.  Instead, you double down and come out swinging in the next rounds. For most, certainly if you are here, you have the hunger in your eyes and determination in your […]

Make Hay While The Sun Shines

You’ve heard the expression, you might have said it before, your parents, your parents’ parents, and so on and so forth.  As you go back in generations I’d guess the saying was more common than it might be today. The simple point: make the most of an opportunity while it lasts. I’m sure the other principle […]

Resist The Urge

I challenge you to not give up your control, to think free, to choose your own approach to life and business and otherwise.  What else is the point?  You aren’t here to become someone else’s puppet. Let me ask you a question: are you a conformist? Or are you a creator, an originator, a freethinker? I can […]

Danger and Opportunity

One of the things I learned very early on in life (mostly through my martial arts teachings and training of students), is that we all go through very similar experiences but just process them quite differently. Death, divorce, tragedy, triumph, challenges, loss, gain, disappointment, success, accidents, achievements, love, hate, etc. If they didn’t happen to […]

Tapping Into The Power of Your Past

Recently, I was talking with my Grandmaster from Martial Arts (who is like a father to me), and we were discussing the implications and societal dynamics of any crisis.  Of course, in particular we focused on this current crisis; whether you consider the coronavirus, the lockdown, the economic shutdown, or perhaps all of the above as […]
