The Attitudes And Actions Of Successful Entrepreneurs


Dear Katie (Freiling),

Before I get into what I’ve learned this past year, I wanted to thank you for all of your guidance, coaching, and mentoring in 2009. You probably weren’t aware of me swinging by and watching videos and reading your posts, but you’ve been very influential in my personal growth and development as an entrepreneur. Thanks so much!

With the New Year here now and in full swing it’s been timely for me to briefly look back and celebrate the triumphs that I’ve witnessed within myself through the process of consistent diligence and perseverance.

If I could boil down or even dissect the exact strategies, thoughts, and actions that I’ve done to quickly and solidly show up in the online marketing community, I would have to list these following 11 points. Let me assure you, they aren’t any ‘magic’ formulas or ‘secret’ tactics.

They’re just SIMPLE, LAWS AND TRUTHS about the mindset and actions that successful people and entrepreneurs do and the relationship building process they put into practice. That’s it… No tricks. No gimmicks.

And that’s why I’m so excited to share with you what I’ve learned, because if people take these to heart there truly is nothing that can stop them or get in their way to create the future they want for themselves and their families.

My hope is that people take this list and put it into their own personal action plan. It’s important that people not look back with regrets, but live in each beautiful moment and enjoy the journey as it unfolds in front of them.

As you read you’ll see that these ideas are simply organized by the ‘attitude’ that is necessary and the ‘action’ that best matches.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(1) Decisions

Attitude: Make a decision to seek wisdom. In all things, look to do what is right rather than what is accepted. Take total control over your life. Be a life-long student. This is ultimately and completely all up to the individual. And furthermore, people need to see this change as an opportunity!

Action: Keep everything in manageable chunks. Seek knowledge through reading, courses, webinars, classes, and mentoring. While you build these mentor-to-student relationships be open to correction and new ideas. (Joshua 1:8)

(2) Self-Discovery


Attitude: Discover who you are and seek God’s will for your life. (Deut 6:13) What are your passions, strengths, interests, goals, and talents? This is where you find the things that get your juices flowing and help you jump out of bed with enthusiasm each day!

Action: Now use those gifts and talents to make this world a better place and further the kingdom of God. (Romans 12:4-6) Without finding your passions you’ll find yourself stagnant and depressed about life. You can live an amazing life doing the things you love. Gary Vaynerchuk’s book, Crush It! is proof!

(3) Mindset


Attitude: Change your thinking and mindset. There is infinite power in your personal attitude towards life. Be mindful of how you think about others and yourself. Don’t let others steal your dreams. And recognize who you are to God.

Action: Take captive every thought. (2 Corr 10:5b) “Is this thought a productive thought? Is it serving me the way I want it to?” I look around and see so many people basically sleeping their way through life with no ambitions and completely giving up on their dreams. (Romans 12:2)

(4) Joy

Attitude: Be thankful and joyful in your circumstances. (Heb 12:28) Look at what you have vs. what you don’t have. So many people have their eyes on what other people have and miss the blessings right in front of them.

Action: Pray and meditate over all that you have. Show gratitude. Be conscious about how you allow outside circumstances dictate the way you feel or act. Remember, happiness is a choice, and you can choose to prosper wherever you are planted.

(5) Love

Attitude: Determine to love other people. See them through God’s eyes. People can sense when you authentically care and have their best interests in mind. Isn’t that the way you want to be treated?

Action: Do actions of love. Do you see people with value or do you see them like a target with dollar signs on their forehead? Love others with action… love is patient, kind, and forgiving (1 Corr 13:4-8a). Have you heard of the Platinum Rule… an upgrade to the Golden Rule? Treat others the way THEYwant to be treated!

(6) Words

Attitude: Control how you talk. Words hold a massive amount of power. How many of you remember something that your parents said to you and still let it affect you even today? Isn’t that amazing? Negative self-talk can also destroy how we feel about ourselves. (Eph 4:29)

Action: Only build up others and yourself. Your words can be a benefit to other people and can also be of assistance to those who are listening and watching that same conversation.

(7) Intentions


Attitude: Be open to new inspiration. Who will you be today? Will you be a grump and antisocial or someone pleasant and everyone’s friend? That simple little attitude housed up in your brain can make or break what you accomplish. What are your intentions?

Action: Commit to exchange bad habits for good ones. Be conscious of what you want. Put these thoughts down in writing and post them up so you can read them daily. (Eph 3:5, 3:12)

(8) Purpose


Attitude: Follow the path laid out before you with your gifts and talents. Ultimately you want to identify your purpose and make it your passion. What do you love to do?

Action: Be willing to step out of your comfort zone. Take that interest and passion into the world. Inspire others that have similar interests to accomplish more and lead the charge in growing that niche! (2 Corr 12:10)

(9) Motivations


Attitude: Identify what motivates you. What are you excited about? Do you know your ‘why’… or the reason you are doing what you’re doing? This also closely relates to what you feel your purpose is.

Action: This is what will help you get out of bed each morning with a brighter outlook on life or to persevere towards manifesting your dreams.

(10) Mission


Attitude: Believe it or not, you are a missionary to make a change in the world! Go where God leads you. Be confident that you are here for a bigger purpose. Strive to improve in all areas of your life. It’s about enjoying the journey and making it comfortable for others, too. (Matthew 28: 19-20)

Action: Now do it! Be a missionary. Share the hope and spread the word for whatever you’re passionate about. Start with yourself. Focus on your family, then move on to those whom you have influence over.

(11) Your Tribe

Attitude: Find other people who share your same visions and passions. Surround yourself with these like-minded souls to nurture and support your vision and journey. These people will continue to keep you on track and inspire you to greatness.

Action: In that process you can humbly teach others about what you’ve learned. This will naturally lead them to the expert you’ve learned from so they can have access to further mentoring as well.

This journey and process will leave a lasting legacy that will flow out through you to future generations.

Last Thoughts…

Listen, I know that was a lot to digest. My challenge to you is to look at these ideas one at a time. Find one thing you can do under each section to improve on. This is something I am constantly working on myself. This process is definitely a voyage, not a destination.

But like sailors on a ship, we have to have a destination in mind as we set our course and direction.

I hope this encourages you to tackle your thoughts and attitudes. Harness your infinite potential and conquer your ‘giants’ that attempt to trip you up and keep you from your dreams. Refuse to give up! And hold on tight for the ride of your life!

I’d love to hear about the ONE ‘gold nugget’ you discovered in this post. And it goes without saying that your ReTweet is always appreciated.

I Was Given A Million Dollars… This Is How It’s Changed My Life

hour_glass_and_moneySo the alarm rattled my brain this morning at 5am, and I laid there wrestling with my mind over whether I wanted to get up and start my day or not… I was a year older today and had several things running through my mind.

Then I remembered a chat I had had with my wife Kelly not too long ago…

Dream Or Reality?

“…I was visualizing myself walking quickly and silently past my boys’ bedroom on my way to the front door. The morning heat was kicking on in the house and the cool, fresh air hit my face as I reached down for the large sack on my outside front step… A huge smile stretched across my face.

I opened the sack and thumbed through it. It was all there. My daily allowance of $10,000!

The stipulations on the enclosed note said that over the next 100 days I would be receiving a sack like this each day, but the money not spent or utilized by the end of the day would disappear, never to be seen again. And depending on how I did, I might be granted an extension on this offer…

Excitement rushed through my veins as I made my plans for this day and the days to come… Not wanting to miss out on any opportunity to get out there and do good for my family and the world with these precious resources…”

Did you know that this happens every day at my house? Although it’s not literally $10,000 sitting there on my porch, I do have around 18 hours of wake time or 1,080 minutes or 64,800 seconds in each day to take action with. That’s $9.26 per minute or $.15 per second (if I did my math right in this analogy).

We can either choose to “spend” that time with positive thoughts and empowering actions or not to. It ultimately comes down to the BIG QUESTION… “How do I “spend” my time?”

One thing is for sure, we are not ever able to retrieve the time that has passed… much like the money that is spent or squandered. The ‘Parable of the Talents’ (Matthew 25:14-30) in the Bible is one great source for this understanding, too.

We all have precious resources to be good stewards of, whether it be money, time, talent or even just life…

So much time is being spent by people worrying or being angry at the world… That won’t fix anything. If anything, it will only perpetuate these beliefs and attempt to drag everyone down around them.


Let’s Ask Ourselves Some Tough Questions


How is your time spent? Is it vested in your eternity? Is it vested in the long-term well-being of your family or your wellness for a better quality of life? Don’t let your thoughts or beliefs hold you captive. Make a change now to look at life through a new lens. Embrace each day as a new blessing and be a blessing to others around you.

You know what will happen don’t you? You’ll become more happy and content… a content ness that brings peace to you and those around you. By living in each ‘moment’ and being ‘present’ you become more true to you and open to what life has to give back to you as well.

Looking back at our analogy… if after 100 days I maximized the resources I was given (i.e. $10,000 daily allowance) I could have invested a total of $1 million dollars… What kind of long-lasting affect might I have on those around me? Especially if I now have $1 million dollars invested in numerous ways?

Well, can you see how the same holds true with the way we ‘spend’ our time? Of course! And based on our actions we might even be entrusted with more in the long run, too!

Ultimately our decisions are based on a couple of simple things. We use discipline to accomplish our goals and to avoid pain and to use our time well. Or there can be the motivation of regret which brings pain based on not using our time well or making poor choices. What motivates you? Self-discipline or Regret?

Here is a video with a great message. Take a moment to sit back and soak it up…

Marketing Blind Spots? Does Your Tribe Have Your Back?

Social Tribes – The Benefits of a Blogging Alliance

The idea of forming tribes around social media and blogs is catching on and for good reason. I’m sure you’ve heard about forming tribes for content syndication. If you have not… the idea is you network with a few people to promote each others content. There are many benefits around tribes and rapid exposure is just the start. But before we get into that I want to share a story of how this tribe was founded.

In the video below you’ll hear how our tribe “Team Empowered” came to be. Like all good ideas, this tribe was formed out of a need. A need that would be better filled with a focused determined group, than by one individual… me.

Earlier this summer I finally came to the realization that I was going to start a blog. I had put off this concept for over 3 years. Many people would tell me to “Just start one.” “You need a blog to get your message out there.” “There’s a lot of money to be made by blogging.” All good points but I had my doubts.

Could I create a blog and provide enough content to keep readers coming back? How often do I need to keep feeding this blog thing? Do I need a technical degree to set it up? And the biggest question we all face is… How do I get traffic? So many questions… but I finally took the plunge and got a blog started with the help of a few friends.

As I was looking around at many different blogs I realized that some were just empty. There was no life, no energy… no community. I knew that I would face the same issues. How to get traffic? So I figured that if I had these questions, others did as well.

So I reached out to several people and purposed a blogging alliance. I was looking to create a mastermind group of a few people who would comment on each others blog and “buzz” each others content. Social Tribes for content syndication was born.

It was not hard to find a few people who caught the vision and wanted to play ball. They are all over the social media sites. Most of them are busy promoting their own content. However there are a few who seem to be climbing the social sites faster than others.

As I mentioned earlier this concept was the main goal at the time. Since then we have realized that there are many benefits to having a mastermind group that is focused on helping each other. A joint venture is one of those benefits and that’s exactly what we did.

There are 5 of us in our blogging alliance. We all have different skills and talents. By pulling these resources together we have made a program that teaches people the power behind tribes, content syndication and social media. Below is a brief excerpt from our official launch of the Tribe Mastery intensive.

* In module 1 you will hear from Kary Rogney about blogging and how to set up your blog correctly to gain the most exposure from social media. Kary also shares his secrets to gaining over 70 RT’s and almost 40 comments for one post alone.
* In module 2 Ken will share the concept behind tribes and the power of having an alliance. I will also cover the many ways to use social media for content syndication.
* In module 3 Jon Alfredsson shares his Twitter expertise and with over 27,000 followers there is good reason to listen. Jon is the #3 top Twitter tweeter in Sweden.
* In module 4 Nick Logan and Kary Rogney cover content creation. They will be sharing what you need to have in every piece of content you publish. Weather it’s blog posts, videos or articles, if you don’t have eye catching appealing stuff, all the syndication in the world wont help you get noticed.
* In module 5 Michael Feil shares all his tips and tracks for Facebook. This social media giant can be your best asset or biggest waste of time. Marketing the right way will save you months if not years of frustration.
* In module 6 Jon and Ken team up to show the power behind video marketing and social book marking. Many of these time saving tips for traffic creation go over looked.

Now I would like to introduce Kary Rogney as he shows you how he was able to create 15,000 views to his blog in less than 5 months. Before you move on down the page I would like you to ask yourself two questions.

Could I benefit from a blogging alliance? Or Do I want to keep hitting my head against the wall by marketing all by myself?

Creating A Blog That Is Ready To Syndicate

Frustrated…

All I know is that just 4 months ago I was out there doing all of my marketing on my own. I was meeting a few people and learning a few strategies, but, I had mo partnerships and was making very little money online. I made a few affiliate sales here and there, but that was it for my online income.

Something had to change…

So it was in April when I saw Katie Freiling launch her blog and knew that I need to do the same thing.

The problem was, I couldn’t figure out how she did it! She was getting leads, getting business partners, and making $$$!

I started talking to blog designers and got quotes of thousands of dollars… I was really frustrated!

Plus, I didn’t know how I’d get traffic there. I saw most people just spamming their links to try to get people to go to their company sites and capture pages… I knew that I wanted to do it differently to build my online business.

Solved…

So I decided to get some exclusive mentoring from Jonathan Budd and Katie Freiling on blogging and social media marketing!

BTW Katie was getting 400-500 veiws of her blog each day at that time. Think how much that would’ve cost to do that with Pay-Per-Click… that would have cost a fortune. She was doing it all for FREE!

Within weeks I had my blog set up, had plan, and was quickly seeing results with visitors, traffic, and new Tribe partnerships. That’s when we began to put our Tribe Syndication partnership together and learn how to drive traffic to our sites using social media.

Results…

Within 4 months I had over 400 subscribers, had a dozen new business partners (savvy Internet marketers, too), have made thousands in bonuses and commissions, have had people calling and paying me for personal mentoring, and much more!

This has all happened… not because I’m anything special… it’s because I took MASSIVE ACTION on the activities that my coaches told me to do!

Their training was A HUGE BREAKTHROUGH for me!

Now sit back and soak in some more ideas and let my buddies share some tips on what we’re doing on Twitter and Facebook.

Content Creation For Powerful Messages

Tribe Syndication is an incredible way to grow your business or promote a cause.

Without good quality content it’s difficult to attract top notch people to network with.

One of the best ways to make your blog stand out is to put yourself in your readers shoes. Who is your reader? What is your reader wanting to read? What do they NEED to read?

YouTube Preview Image
Before you figure out who your reader is, you need to really define your niche? You may not have a niche yet. You might have a niche, but really need to define it and hone in on it. What is your voice to the world?

I was listening to Brian Tracy the other day. He was talking about how successful people are able to focus on the things that they don’t want to do, so they can enjoy the things that they do want to do.

I agree with that. However, if you pick the right niche you can have your cake and eat it too. If you want to make money blogging, it’s best to choose a niche that you enjoy speaking about.

Creating A Massive Buzz With Your Tribe On Facebook

YouTube Preview Image


If you would like to see the second part of this video that gets into the real meat of one Facebook technique that I use to add to my Tribe please go to and watch this video. Click Here For Part 2

Let me explain this technique to you really quick because it’s very powerful if you use it correctly!

In Facebook we all have the ability to make categories for our friends. My “friends” on Facebook consist of a few different types of people.

1. My Family

2. My Personal Friends

3. My Business Partners

4. My Tribe Members

5. New People I Meet On Facebook

Out of all of these people the most important to me from a Social Media standpoint is number 5. Why? Because my family and personal friends are not looking to join a business or do a joint venture with me. That’s old school marketing and to me is a big waste of time.

I stay in touch with my business partners and my Tribe on a regular basis, so I know what’s going on with them.

However, the new people I meet on Facebook have potential to partner or JV with me at some point in the future. I just need to find out where they stand. So all of these people I put in a category called internet marketing (you can name it however you want. That’s just what I call it.) So in a sense this is my sales funnel. Since I’m all over Facebook 99% of the time these people that want to be my friend or accept my friend request are in some kind of home based business, online marketing, or just an aspiring entrepreneur.

So because I have categorized these people as having potential I can now go through this list in an orderly fashion and start to build a rapport with each of these people to see what they’re all about.

So if you’re having problems getting traffic to your website or your blog you can find an endless amount of traffic just by going to Facebook and talking to people and properly categorizing them while you work THAT sales funnel. From there lead them to your website or blog. Ask them to just check it out and to tell you their opinion of it.

You will get WAY farther doing this than just going on Facebook and SPAMMING people to check out your latest opportunity. Many people forget the SOCIAL part of Social Media. There has to be some kind of interaction between both parties or else it’s just media…or what I like to call SPAM!

It’s a simple technique but overlooked by many!

36 Paths To Creating Powerful Joint Ventures Through Social Media

joint+venture+secretsThe other night I got off the phone with one of my online buddies…

The house was all dark and quiet and everyone was fast asleep. I was nowAMPED and WIDE awake because of the conversation I had just had.

I have to be honest with you… I keep getting ‘slapped’ upside the head with HUGE “Ah-ha!” moments, and feel that it is finally time I share with you and completely EXPOSE an online ‘wealth creator’ that not many people in social media talk about or even know exists…

And that is the JOINT VENTURE…

Now I know, I know. It doesn’t sound glamorous or exotic. And for most people those words sound too full of ‘business’ and ‘work’ and no fun. But the joint venture is far from that, and I’m going to share with you why!

About a year ago, when I first came online I was very blessed by some specialized knowledge and happened to tap into some GREAT MENTORING (Jonathan Bud) that led me to focusing on creating relationships and exposure in social media. Again, if it all sounds too simple, let me ask you this…

Of the people you are connected with on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, or your blog, how many of them have you actually talked to on the phone or Skype? And how many have called you, not to pitch or sell you on anything, but to join you in business, as a partner, or want your mentoring?

There is a reason that most people aren’t seeing any success online, because they are doing social media marketing ALL WRONG!! And I know most people actually KNOW this information, but don’t APPLY this knowledge effectively or persistently…

Boiled down… you want to Educate, Enlighten, Entertain, Encourage, and Inspire people with your messages and videos. (Katie Freiling is a perfect example of this.) If you are doing this, you will ‘attract’ and ‘draw’ people to YOU like bees to honey! If you don’t make these changes, you won’t have a chance to succeed in the social media arena. That’s just the plain TRUTH…

The reason I’m sharing this with you today is because a Joint Venture will never have a chance of surfacing if you don’t bring ‘value’ to the world you are engaging!

meeting online

So let’s get into some examples and details of what can be done to encourage people to KNOW, LIKE, AND TRUST you and ultimately want to learn from, join, or partner with you in business.

  1. Relationship Building: Remember it’s about keeping the focus on others, asking questions, and listening for their Strengths, Interests, Goals, and Needs (SIGN). I like to visualize a spot light on them, keeping it off of me. People love to talk about themselves, and you will be thought of fondly by them as a great conversationalist.
  2. Earning Trust: The fastest way to lose this is to be ‘pitching’ your gig to them right out of the gate. Approach people in a support role. Give, give, give…
  3. Building Value: Ninety percent of your messages and content need to be of value to your audience. Ten percent or less should be based around promoting some sort of product or service you market. Be careful in the way you do this though… Create the promotion around a question or open ended thought.
  4. Be A Good Communicator: Be clear and concise. Focus on what your audience would be interested in. Look directly into the camera lens if using video. They are asking themselves, “What’s in it for me?” as they engage you, too.
  5. Use Social Media Strategies: Leverage the power of the social media sites. That is take advantage of the massive amount of traffic there. Get training from those with proven results in this arena.
  6. Use Tools And Systems: Putting these together will maximize your results online. Make sure you have the ability to capture leads, follow up with them, and create more exposure for yourself. There are many such tools and systems to choose from…
  7. Create A Blog: By far the most powerful strategy to have today in marketing is a personal WordPress blog. This is your ‘home’, the place where you can invite your new friend to learn everything about you. This is where you are able to build your personal brand and share your knowledge and personality with the world.
  8. Create Social Proof: People want to see who you are connected with. They ask themselves, “Are people interested in your content?” People won’t spend much time on a site that looks like a ghost town. That’s why your relationships are SO important!
  9. Promote Others: Get out there and ReTweet great content on blogs, comment on them, promote and tag people on Facebook, create a Facebook Fan Page that helps support others and their ability to self promote, ‘buzz’ other people’s content on Twitter with a genuine “shout out” about something of value that someone you want to know has created, etc…
  10. Be Transparent And Authentic: Don’t just talk marketing and MLM… that isn’t who you REALLY are! Connect everything to a personal experience or story that people can relate to.
  11. Show Your Personal Side: Tell stories about struggles, victories, family life, hobbies, interests, dreams, goals, passions… just typing these words gets me excited!
  12. Use Video: This is the one medium that lets people see into your soul, connecting with the real person you are. Text and emails can’t come close to making a genuine first impression like video can. Send personal video messages on Facebook. I can’t tell you how many people have flipped out and told me how awesome it was to receive a video message from me. And that I was the first person to ever do that. And that they were going to start doing the same…
  13. Offer A Mentoring Program: Believe it or not. You are most likely ready to do this now… Let me explain. Would you say that you probably know more than most people about marketing online? Because you’re here right now, I’m assuming you’re swimming in the same waters with people that have taught you a lot about this topic. Now you can take that to the next level. Create your blog and offer mentoring. Put a PayPal button on there and away you go. Here’s a post that shares how to do that and how to brainstorm a niche for mentoring.
  14. Promote Your “Tribe”: Find people who offer high-value content and promote them on the social media sites and on their blog. An amazing thing will happen. They will reciprocate and you will reap HUGE REWARDS for this philosophy.
  15. Engage People Everywhere: Show appreciation, comment on interesting ideas, ask questions, relate what you read to your own stories and get people to think and respond back to you… This is what creates the magnetic effect with people who GET THIS!! Start doing this immediately!
  16. Refer People To Others (Be A ‘Connector’): Maybe it’s not a match for you to work with someone you know, but you just met someone else who would be… Connect them up. You’ll be amazed at what will come back to you when you GIVE UNCONDITIONALLY!

defining-it-project-success
Here are Five Powerful Laws Of Stratospheric Success (From The Go-Giver Book) to consider…

  • The Law Of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
  • The Law Of Compensation: Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
  • The Law Of Influence: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
  • The Law Of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
  • The Law Of Receptivity: The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.

These ideas have been some of the most influential concepts that have shaped the way I do business and relate to people.

So now that you have 100′s or 1,000′s of more meaningful, ‘connected’ relationships, you now have an incredible asset to work with. Obviously growing your list of subscribers fits in here as well… because you can continue to communicate to them at will ’til the end of time. And they will be VERY responsive if you follow the lessons outlined above!

The whole time you were developing those relationships it was like putting money into the bank. When it comes time to request a withdrawal, you’ll have EARNED that opportunity.

Is this all starting to make sense???

coop_two

But you haven’t even seen the FUN part! The part where you can create a significant income while having fun with these new friends…

Here is a significant list of the many creative and lucrative ventures you can develop:

  1. Host Webinars (Free or Paid): This will still lead people to your information, products, or services.
  2. Create Info Products: DVD’s, CD’s, eBooks, Membership Site. Too many people don’t think they have enough value to bring to the table. But THAT IS A FREAKING LIE YOU NEED TO QUIT TELLING YOURSELF!
  3. Form A Tribe Or Content Syndication Partnership:
  4. Create A Team Around A Network Marketing Product: Delegate marketing duties based on strengths; PPC, video, blogging, contacts, list building, social media, etc…
  5. Cross Promote Each Others Products/Services:
  6. Create Your Own Affiliate Programs For Information, Products, Or Services: Enlist your friends to help you with content, exposure, and marketing. Share the profits.

HERE’S WHAT MY RESULTS HAVE BEEN WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE…

I launched my blog 3 months ago, and last month I had 9 people join me in my main business opportunity (with a half dozen more sitting on the fence ready to jump in any day), I’m part of a leadership team launching a NEW company right now, I’m personally mentoring 4 new people on a weekly basis, my ‘core’ tribe is launching a webinar training series on Marketing With Tribes, information products are being created, advanced mentoring programs are being established, membership sites are being co-created, exclusive affiliate programs are being launched, and several other things I’m not at liberty to talk about…

I’m sharing this not to BRAG or SHOW OFF… but to encourage you. YOU CAN DO THIS, TOO!

If this is a new idea for you and you’re new to online marketing, I have an ‘Encouraging Message’ for you here as well.

And really… what are you waiting for?

success

Let me share with you how I would get started on this grand adventure…

  1. Make sure and subscribe to several marketing professionals’ newsletters. After a while the cream will rise to the surface and you’ll truly know who offers the best information on the web for getting the job done!
  2. Connect with the marketing geniuses that you admire. Engage them with questions. Probe them for gold nuggets of information. Better yet invest in your own personal growth and training to hone your skills in this unique industry.
  3. Get personal one-on-one mentoring. I know for a fact that the people I’ve been mentored by or the people I personally mentor get a MILLION TIMES more accomplished because of the accountability and personal attention received. Duh… that’s why the world’s best athletes and musicians all have personal coaches, trainers, or teachers!
  4. I’d love to hear form you on my blog and on the social media sites. Look me up and let me know how things are going for you AFTER you start taking MASSIVE action on this information today.

I wish for you the best and all that life has to offer. It’s ALL IN YOUR HANDS NOW. What people do with this kind of knowledge is what separates the 97% from the 3% out there. Which will you be?

PS And finally, I have to thank Jonathan Budd for all that he’s done to help train and support me in my online adventure!

And btw, I always appreciate the ReTweet. And let’s drive down the conversation and ideas on this post. Ask questions and let your voice be heard. It’s all about engaging and interacting. Why not start here for a warm up?

Well, you’re sitting on the ‘blueprint’ to build your dynasty and to leave your powerful mark and legacy behind for future generations. What direction will your life go now?

I look forward to getting to know you soon, my friends…

How To Overcome The Mind… And Receive Your New Body… *NextFit Review

Why Do I Have These Thoughts?

For years and years I’ve wrestled with “My Mind” in regards to my own personal fitness and exercise. It’s only been recently where I’ve taken more control and overcome that stumbling block in my life. I’m focused and driven to move forward with my new wellness and total life transformation.

This Is Nothing Short Of A Miracle For Me…

Now I’ve never been over weight or totally inactive, but I’ve definitely been thin and not very strong during my life. That’s not saying that I’m not tough… I did work 10 summers in the fishing industry in Alaska… but I have definitely avoided lifting weights and running like “The Plague”! I’d always chosen to get my exercise playing basketball or beach volleyball, etc…

Well, something new has crossed my path and given me a new excitement for many reasons. It’s called the NextFit Key Chain Trainer.

I Have A Choice To Make…

First of all, I’ve come to realize that I’m not getting any younger, and I have accepted that I have an extremely busy schedule, so taking time to go to the gym has not been a priority. Besides, we all know that going to the gym can take and hour or two out of your schedule, costs extra money, and has even gone unused during past memberships, too. And I definitely have not chosen to schedule that in to my routine… at least not yet.

And What Is My Health Worth?

It’s just that most Americans are so stinking cheap and lazy and in very poor health… And that needs to change!

I don’t want to die of a heart attack or get diabetes or whatever!! Neither does anyone else I’m sure. You know, it all comes down to making a decision. It’s all about your mind and starting from there. That’s it.

It’s So Simple, Yet Eludes So Many People…

Have you ever had a personal trainer to set up your own fitness plan? I sure haven’t. I know when I have had gym memberships I sure could have used one, but never seemed to work it into my budget or schedule. We all know that having a personal trainer is the most effective way to truly get the results you want for your fitness outcomes. It really has become an elitist commodity, much like health and wellness has become in our country, too.

Why Are We Flabby And Malnourished?

And we live in the richest (in debt) nation ever to be established on earth! It’s because we chose to be that way. We chose to live crazy busy lives, work two jobs, eat convenience foods, and sit in front of the TV and computer. Listen, it’s plain and simple. More calories going into your body than are burned = an expanding waste line and = more health related issues.

Well, NextFit has answered my needs with an Intuitive Technology that puts 40 of the world’s top personal trainers in the palm of my hand… any time and any where I am, traveling or at home, they mix up the music from over 150 selections and talk me through the reps and directions in each customized session… even calling me by name! (And it’s no weird computer voice either.)

This intuitive, artificial intelligence adjusts and customizes my workout based on my age, weight and height profile, my personal goals, and based on the available equipment I have access to… And so much more!

Listen to Tony Robbins, master speaker and entrepreneur share his insights to this new technology innovation.



Make sure and check out all THREE PARTS of this VIDEO SERIES as I demo and explain my experience with the NextFit Key Chain Trainer.

Question: What do you do for your own fitness program?

Speaking Louder Than Words: “Be A Force Of Nature!”

IMG_1780Have you ever heard the saying, “Be A Force Of Nature!”? Think of the image that statement brings to your mind… of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc… Things unstoppable and powerful! We all have that power to create change in our lives if we truly want it for ourselves.

God has put on my heart a clear and defining purpose for my life and for my many roles I play. For years I have stumbled along with no clear vision or obvious direction. I truly, with deep thought and conviction have decided to take responsibility for the many components of my life.

‘Now’ is the time I can change… not the past, or even the future that’s not even here yet.

My goal here is to lay out my purpose in a simple and meaningful way so that I empower myself (and possibly others) to new levels of effectiveness as a husband, father, friend, entrepreneur, and follower of Christ. Only with God’s loving grace and power will I stay on course and continue to focus on these vital goals. I know that this is about ‘my great journey,’ not merely the destination, because I’m fully aware that I will never completely arrive or be perfect. I’m definitely a work in progress!

Part 1: My Purpose As A Father

My purpose as a father is to model and teach responsibility, to show love and acceptance and a non-judgmental attitude in the process of teaching and disciplining my boys; raising up my boys in action and word to know God’s Truth.

Why would I want to do all this?

  • To build a strong, long-lasting relationship with them.
  • To establish a trusting and loving relationship with them.
  • To keep communication open now and in the future with them.
  • To help them build a personal relationship with Christ and to help them recognize the Truth vs. The Lies in the world.
  • To equip them with the necessary life skills to live happy, productive lives. This includes teaching about how to be a wise husband, dad, friend, worker, or leader.

How will I accomplish this rewarding task?

By…

  • Spending quality time with my boys.
  • Raising my personal awareness of being 100% present with them when I’m around them… not distracted by all the other things that can easily cloud my mind. Truly wanting to listen to them and be an active listener.
  • Continuing to study, pray, and discuss the Bible with them.
  • Read great books on this topic. Listen and learn from great teachers and leaders in regards to being a great father.
  • Talk and learn from other dads.

Now it’s time to create my action plan. This will include what I’ll do and when.

  • One to two times per week I’ll take my boys someplace special; focusing on the 3 of us interacting and bonding.
    • Activity Ideas: hiking, playing at a park, to a restaurant, a drive, bike ride, going for a walk, playing a game in the yard.
  • Individually spend time with them: playing, homeschooling, reading, playing a game, chasing, wrestling, pretending, sharing old stories about me or mom or our families
  • Praying with them each night before bed, giving thanks for our favorite things of the day, blessing and praying for others.
  • Eating sit-down meals together as a whole family each morning and/or at dinner.
  • Model beneficial characteristics of a father and husband through words and actions.
  • Be approachable with problems or concerns daily.
  • Openly share how proud I am of them and how much I love them each day.
  • Plan fun family events at home or away: vacations, camping, hikes, BBQs, playdates, outings.
  • Read and talk about God’s word. Ask about what they’re learning in homeschool or at church each week. Share what I know and believe.

Part 2: My Purpose As A Husband

My purpose as a husband is to love and cherish my wife Kelly, support her in the planning of homeschooling or home programs for our boys, partner with her on managing the various responsibilities  around the home, have open and honest communication… being transparent with her in my life, be her spiritual leader in our home, encourage her to pursue the things that bring joy and happiness to her.

Why would I want to do all this?

  • To bond and build a deep and meaningful relationship with her.
  • To establish a trusting and loving relationship with her.
  • To keep communication open with her; mutual trust.
  • To partner in our relationships with Christ and to support each other with this journey.

How will I accomplish this rewarding task?

By…

  • Being aware of where my mind is when I’m around Kelly; being more ‘present’ with her.
  • Listening, reading, and learning about what it takes to be a good spouse.
  • Talking to other husbands that have great relationships with their wives.
  • Making the decision to and wanting to change.
  • Looking for the opportunities to encourage her and lift her up.
  • Smiling when I’m around her; not be so serious.

Now it’s time to create my action plan. This will include what I’ll do and when.

  • Set aside time in my day to talk and listen to Kelly.
  • Stick with our agreed schedule of activities for each day.
  • Communicate my concerns, celebrations, thoughts, needs, and wants with her.
  • Schedule dates and quality time together.
  • Show affection with her when I leave the house and when saying goodnight.
  • Help with dishes, garbage, with the boys, etc… without being asked; anticipate her need for help.
  • Show appreciation and surprise her occasionally because I want to and because I love her.

Now friends, the reason I’m sharing this all with you is not to show you my plans but to show you how to go after your goals and dreams with a plan… AND TO TAKE ACTION!!

Just plug in your goals and use this format to make the changes you want to in your life. I know you can do it… I know it won’t always be easy, but you can revisit your words, evaluate your progress, have an accountability partner in the process, and live the life you were meant to live.

Happy ~ Healthy ~ Prosperous

Thoughts To A New Entrepreneur

CB026240Invest in yourself!

Educate yourself in strengthening your mindset. Secondly, marketing and advertising strategies will be high on your list of priorities. And most of all, focus on growing as a ‘person of value’ to the world. If you do this… in whatever field you choose… you will find yourself head and shoulders above the rest of the people fighting and clawing to squash each other in the rat race of the corporate world!

No where else and at no other time in history has there been as great an opportunity as there is now to take advantage of the economy and the Internet. Marketing information, products, and services through highly natural and authentic targeted markets have become simple, easy and fun if you’ve laid out a solid foundation.

You need to be open, transparent, and true to yourself. Learn how to serve others, and how to authentically build your value, so that people beg you to be in their company or to partner with you.

Surrounding yourself with successful, influential people and putting their needs ahead of your own will create a vacuum affect that will transform your income and the way you think and act. Believe me, your actions speak much louder than your words. Be a leader by your example.

I’m envious of the exciting road you have in front of you. And I wish for you the wisdom and insight to make the very best decision that’s right for you and your journey.

I believe in you. You’re going to do great things!
