What Are You Waiting For?

Would You Tell People?

I'd Tell Them, "If Your Goal Isn't Impossible..."
I'd Tell Them, "If Your Goal Isn't Impossible..."

If you found a cure for cancer, would you tell people?

If you believe in your message, your platform so to speak, and knew that if it were available to others, and it would help them, would you tell people?

Jack Canfield suggested you become very comfortable with self-promotion. So much so, that you become an expert at it, a marketing expert.

This is counter-intuitive. But you must own it. And get very, very good at it.

None of this matters if you don’t believe your message will help others.

Number One Reason

Last weekend, my son (9) and I were relaxing in our pool at sunset.  I asked him, “You know why I’m working so hard on the business, right”?

“In case you lose your job”?, he said, questioning.

“Well sort of, but not really because of that.  I would like to have more control over the impact one can make on our world.  Being a business owner doesn’t guarantee that, but it sure does increase the odds”.

Reminded him of the power of hard work and how it’s harder at the beginning, in virtually everything, because there’s so much to learn.

Funny thing, for a nine-year old, he gets it.  And it’s easy to see why.

When his Dad became a parent, he worked really hard at the beginning, because there was so much to learn.

PS.  What I didn’t tell him is the “business” is my attempt to help raise enough money to find a cure for his disease.

Tell Us Already About The MBA

OK, ok, okay.  I’ll tell you.  But please don’t expect it to be predictable. And please don’t expect it to be fully revealed today.

Any idea why?  Well, mostly because it’s awkward to talk about, and even more so to write about.

It most likely goes without saying; however, just so we’re all crystal clear, I’m a square hole looking for a round peg.  Got it?

So let’s start here.  It troubles me, personally, to think that after expending extraordinary resources, the only thing you get upon graduating with an MBA is a piece or paper.

As an over-achiever (like Walt Disney, Roger Bannister, Jesus, Superman, etc), I want a heck of a lot more than a piece of paper.  At 50 years old, what can I do with another piece of paper?

I want profit, a passive income and the ability to work when I want, from where I want, and to hire whom I want, when I want.

My professor says this is possible, but it will require efforts heretofore unheard of.

Money, Money, Money….Money

Money, Money, Money….Money“.  The O’Jays, 1974, For The Love of Money.

I want to make a ton of money.  Seriously.  Enough to buy whatever I want.

First on my list:

  1. A Cure for Crohn’s disease

To take action, – to “put my money where my mouth is” – I’ve returned to school to earn my MBA.

Maybe that’ll be second on the list – pay off school loans.
