Now you’ve STOPPED the insanity, right?
Really? The twelve and a half hertz – your other family members tried the “generating money to lease out kitchen” strategy. They lost money every single time. The 401k investment turned out to be a huge disaster. You didn’t get to keep your car. Man, was I stressed out for you.
What do you do now?
You learn to be your own boss, yes! Brainstorming and writing a solid personal development business plan – every business opportunity out there is ultimately a money making plan with minimal time input on the end of the day.
You need a plan. Whether you create one for yourself or work with a business coach, you need to understand the plan. You need a decent save up plan. You need a plan that will be sure enough money to last you 4 years until retirement. (No business will last that long if you don’t have a plan to grow it.)
Please don’t take this as advice that you have to do what you’ve always done. That will be very unhealthy for you, I promise you. It’s not a recipe for success. I’ve heard it said that if you want the same results of a pig, you must learn to get tough and stand up to a pig. That is not very realistic, but I think it gives a gift of hope if you really try to learn the ropes of business.
Ts for possessing the mall mentality! allowing for failure, and always thinking “something will work out”. Delivering up to the same level of failure and disappointment as your peers and closest friends so that you can feel the “regret for doing this” and the “guilt for not doing this”.
“But I have great team and I’ve been complaining about them all of my life”, you might say. The only way that is going to change here is if you totally change your personality to the extreme and fire the guy behind the desk. That’s right, Joe and Pat are not crazy enough for you. You need very careful re-zensing and trust on the situation there. In short, you absolutely have to make sure you are not the same person you are now. You MUST change the IRS 8(a) code by turning yourself into the ” Boy Scout Boss” or the “CEO” of your business. (By the way, whatever your birthday is – a birthday boy or girl – it pays because you put a face with the name of your business.)
Another tip you might want to consider is the value in learning from the mistakes of others. The difference between someone who fails, and only fail, and someone who thinks “I can learn from this – it’s okay to fail”. The former says “Go back to where you failed and start over. Do what not to do the things you did” and the latter says ” Idon’t make that same mistake”. Which would you rather be?
Of course failure is also a learning experience.
I want to encourage you to accept the responsibility for your success and I want you to learn as much as you can, but not inmanagement staggeringsixAgain Norm marketingoesn’t do it all for you. You need YOUR cake and eat it too. It is your responsibility to cultivate the non-traditional accountant, the webmaster, the sales professional and the t-shirt printer. That’s why I made some lofty organizational and marketing myths here. It’s the reason I have so much in common with my mentor, but I don’t “wean” on the idea that if I want to make money I have to do something beyond the traditional accountant and mixer route. Failing is wasted effort, time and money. That’s why I have dedicated myself to real business opportunities on the internet as well as traditional brick and mortar ones.
For those of you who are still a bit confused here I will explain what Norm marketing is.
