The industry seems to be full of people that are running as fast as they can with very little results to show for it. I just want to encourage you to take a breath, slow down a little. Learn to take the time to think and plan. Listen, I am preaching to the choir here, I am as guilty as anyone reading this post and I am not afraid to admit it! I believe this is a learned skill.
I remember our preacher a few years ago saying, “Pray that God will give you creative ideas”. I remember thinking to myself, “that is the last thing I
need”. Some of you can relate, right?
I started my first business, a direct… Continue reading
One of the biggest mistakes all marketers make is they expect big results with small numbers. One of the number one questions I receive is what percent of the people who land on my website should opt in for my information.
Honestly, there are many factors, most of which I have never paid a lot of attention to (my mistake) like

Because I was able to do it, I KNOW others can develop the right skill sets and mindsets as well.
When people got to a certain level on our team they were invited to our Leaders inside circle called the Eagle Club. We would meet together once a quarter. All new Eagle… Continue reading

NOTE TO SELF – Don’t Schedule 4 Hours of Audio & Video Training On The Day You Are Having Your Office Roof Replace!?
I stayed up until 5:00 AM listening to an enlightening training.
My plan was to get up around 10:00 or 11:00, and video tape until Dawn & I needed to leave around 4:00 to meet my middle daughter and her family at one of our favorite hole in the wall BBQ joints.
At 7:15 it sounded like a group of paratroopers from the movie Red Dawn landed on my roof. “What in the world is going on?” I thought to myself for ½ second. “Oh yeah, this is the day the roofing team is coming. I was thinking that was tomorrow… oh yeah, it is tomorrow” was the internal conversation I had… Continue reading
