Everybody Deserves Their Shot at Success!

December 3rd, 2012

Everyone deserves a shot at successEarlier today, I received an email that contained some disturbing text that I’d like to share with you.

But before I do….

…answer me this: Do you believe that everyone, regardless of race, religion, gender, physical appearance, circumstance or political preference deserves a shot at creating success in their life?

With that question in mind, allow me to take you back to that email I received this morning. But before I paste the text of the email, let me throw out a quick disclaimer for the person who composed this email. I hope that by the time you finish reading this article, that you will understand this concept, that everyone deserves their shot at success. I share your words, not only to teach you, but to help others who may be struggling with this very same principle. With that said, I do this with my best intentions.

Have you ever QUIT a Home Business before?

November 28th, 2012

Quit a Home BusinessWhen you first get started in a home based business, you have all kinds of emotions to deal with. You’re excited and at the same time, maybe a bit nervous, depending on your experience in the industry. Sometimes a lack of knowing what to do can get your nerves all in a bunch, and if that lack of knowledge isn’t fixed, the results often end up in a failed business attempt.

Have you ever Quit a home business before?

If things aren’t going as well as you had expected in your home business, the easiest thing to do is quit! In your mind, quitting solves almost all of your problems, except the very biggest one, which was the one that convinced you into starting a home based business. All the other problems such as monthly expenditures and failed marketing campaigns are now gone.

But, that one little issue that drove you to this industry is still there. Is it a lack in income? Maybe it’s the lack of free time? Whatever the reason, it’s still there!

Our Season Opener Double Overtime Win

November 27th, 2012

Coaching BasketballSince I work from home, I am able to be flexible with my work schedule. On an average day, I work around 4 to 5 hours which gives me the time to be involved in the lives of my children.

This year I have decided to volunteer to coach my daughters girls basketball team. My experience in coaching 10, 11 and 12 year old girls is extremely limited, but so far I’ve had a blast. Having recently moved into the Thatcher school district, I wasn’t sure I would be chosen out of the many who had volunteered to be coaches this year. Most of them have graduated from Thatcher High and have been residents of this area since then. But when I received the call to coach, I was told that I came highly recommended. Can you say, “confidence boost?”

With that said, I’m a coach.

Stories Sell and Results Tell

September 28th, 2012

Stories sell, but before I get into a story, let me tell you a quick thing or two about me and how I use stories. As some of you may know, I’m a church man. I’m part of the LDS church and have held various callings within the church which have given me many teaching opportunities. Many of these “teaching opportunities” come unexpectedly, for example, when you show up to church and the instructor you had assigned to teach that day didn’t show up. So naturally, I have to step in and come up with something great to teach about.

So my number one use for stories is to take up some time, or fill the gaps. Life is full of experiences that can be related to just about anything, especially to my religion. Some of the best speakers in my church and in the world are the ones who can relate a story to their topic. It brings things to life, at least it does for me.
