Blog, Blogroll, One Minute Tips, Tips & Useful Websites No Comments

One of my clients recently had an employee leave that had set up their free

Google My Business page and does not know the user name and password to get in
to it to make changes and control it.

Unfortunately, it can be very hard to work with Google to get this corrected.

My client owns many Hotels and does not have time to figure this out so it has

been neglected up until now.

any kind of issue, give me a call and I will help you out.

If you don’t know much about Google Business Pages I can also show you how to tap into

this goldmine. {These are the top 3 listings on the front page of Google}

Ben Franklin Was Wrong? I Don’t Think So!

Blog, Blogroll, Life Lessons, Quotes To Live By No Comments

Below is my response to an email I rec’d from a man named Chris.

His theory overall was to stop saving, “A penny saved is a penny earned”. It’s false and won’t get you anywhere.

He goes onto to say…

Buy 1st class airline tickets so you feel successful, etc.
Reward yourself, whether you’ve earned it or not.

Warning!! My Response may be too strong for the faint hearted, haha.

So, here is my response…..

Yikes Chris,

That rant is one of the worst things I have ever heard regarding your statement saying that

you believe Ben Franklin’s quote “A penny saved is a penny earned” is totally false.

What you are saying is that you are smarter than Ben Franklin. Tell yourself the truth on that.

Further more, You are so very narrow minded about that saying.

To save coupons does not mean I am not a great investor or successful.

To save on not buying 1st class does not mean I am a loser who does not think well of myself.

Also, I guess you are also smarter than Warren Buffet too.

You miss the boat in so many ways with this narrow minded thinking.

Saving money IS money that you don’t have to earn.
Saving money does NOT mean you don’t also spend money.

IF, all a person cared about was hiding money under the mattress, that would not be wise.

And yet having said that, many more people have been hurt and ruined by buying 1st class tickets when they don’t have the money to do so, just so they could “feel good about themselves”.

If you have to do outward things to feel good about yourself, you have serious problems.

What you have done with your limited view of Ben’s quote, is encourage people to be reckless and think of what they want to do rather than what is wise.

Chris, I have followed you for years and even bought some of your products.

I have been and am a very successful business person who loves not having to re earn a penny I already have.

Not to mention, being a wise steward of what has been giving to me.

So, there is my response.

I hope you read thru it several times and look to see if there is anything here for you, rather than being angry and only wanting to defend your position. I am sure you can find others who salute you and think what you are saying is correct.

I realize this will be hard for you. The success you have had puts you in a very dangerous position.

Either way, I wish you the best.

The Impossible

Blog, Blogroll, Life Lessons, One Minute Tips No Comments

I never was a great runner but did some jogging in my time.

In May of 1954, Roger Bannister changed the world.

For most of human history, it was widely accepted that it was IMPOSSIBLE for a human to run a mile in less than 4 minutes. It was considered a fact.

That is, until Roger dared to ignore what everyone else thought and break it anyway.

And after he broke the psychological barrier that kept ALL OF MANKIND from breaking the 4 minute mile, guess what happened?

In less than 3 years, 16 other runners broke the 4 minute mark. And today, being able to run under a 4 minute mile is the STANDARD of all male professional distance runners.

Maybe you think prospecting for new customers and growing your business is like that 4 minute barrier: It’s just a fact that it has to be hard, expensive, and no matter how you attack it, it’s a slow, painful process.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Like the 4 minute mile, it’s just a false psychological barrier.

What is holding you back? Who are you accountable to grow thru this obstacle?

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being you will do what ever it takes, what is your number?

Make a decision today, NOW, and get help to make it happen!
