Does your income cover all your costs? Is there enough left over to fund your dreams? Are you living the life you dreamed of?
Step back and take an inventory. Are you where you expected to be at this point in your life? What dreams did you have? Was it a home and family? Or maybe a boat or vacation cabin? Or maybe it was traveling the world? What are your dreams? Continue reading →
Have you decided it’s time to think about starting a home business, or finding a way to make money from home?
There could be many reasons why you’re looking. Maybe you just got downsized from your job. Or maybe your job just doesn’t pay enough money to get you through the month? Or, maybe you even have some big dream which requires more than you’re making in your current job?
But now that you’ve looked around and the different options to get started in your home business, you see that most all of them have some sort of start-up cost. And you’re just not sure you want to or can afford to spend the money now. Continue reading →
What qualifies as Financial Freedom? Is it having enough to pay the bills each month? Is it having a six-month buffer in your savings account like recommended by many financial consultants? Maybe it’s not having to worry about where your next paycheck is going to come from?

It used to be that many, many people immigrated to the U.S. – from England, Ireland, Germany, pretty much anywhere in the world. Many of them came with just the clothes on their backs, but they came to the “land of opportunity” and created their own opportunity.

Then the Industrial age came to America, and everyone started working for big companies. That was great while it lasted, but is no longer an effective way to build wealth. It’s time to get back to finding our own opportunities. Continue reading →
Today I saw a news report that shocked me and it’s a HUGE problem that needs to be fixed.
Did you know that 36% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings! (That doesn’t count the money you may have tied up in the home you may own.)
This is TOTAL savings. Savings for retirement… savings for a rainy day! Most of the news report was giving the reasons blaming higher taxes, higher cost of living, stagnant wages and a general declining economy. Continue reading →
Is Our Instant Results Mentality Hurting our Business?
Today we live in a microwave society. People have grown accustomed to instant results and instant rewards.
The days of patience seem to be behind us. Nowadays everything has to be done instantly, but it sometimes can be at the expense of our success.
If you were thinking that this “I want it now” culture doesn’t apply to you, then think again. Think back to the last time you walked into the grocery store. Have you ever bought a TV dinner? How about a pre-chopped, pre-washed bag of salad? Perhaps you were too tired from a day at a desk and just had to have your carrots cut up for you. Continue reading →
