Entrepreneurs : Are You Productive Or Just Plain Busy

I woke up early this morning, browsing the internet, and I suddenly thought of what entrepreneurs like me face on  a daily basis. Here’s a piece of what I found. It’ll speak for itself.                                                                                                      Have you noticed how very busy people are these days? It’s like some sort of epidemic. It’s a curse.

We have only 168 hours a week. If you’re sleeping 8 hours a day means, you only left with roughly 110 hours. Within 110 hours, how many hours can you be really productive?

Because we are busy: –                                                                                                            People are working very hard, long hours in their business.                                       Parents don’t have enough time to play with kids.                                                           We don’t have time to nurture important relationships.                                               We don’t have the quality of life we would like.

Where is being busy getting you?

If everyone is so busy, surely you would expect that people are experiencing phenomenal business success, an idyllic family life and a great lifestyle.

The Question is – Are you busy or are you productive? If you are thinking this isn’t such a big deal and being permanently busy is OK, then keep this in mind: – “Those people who are most successful in any area of life are productive more than they are busy.”

Being busy doesn’t equate to producing results. So, over the next few days just observe yourself and your “busyness”.

Where is it getting you? How does it make you feel?
Is it achieving the results you want for yourself in your business, family life and lifestyle? Each day ask yourself “Am I being busy or Productive”

Make a pact with yourself to reduce “busyness” and increase productivity.   What’s your view on the impact of being permanently busy versus productive? Share and air your views.

Live The Dream: Learn To Increase Value

Hi there, to all that have been following this blog. Unfortunately it is the end of a powerful mastermind weekend at the Gaylord Texan Hotel, for the event of the month – “ Live The Dream“. And all I can say is WOW!!!

The final day was a climax and a climax it was. Success stories all the way… with  little massage sessions here and there. It was fun. Aside all that, the togetherness, the drive to succeed (my drive) was so pumped that you could feel the energy dripping. I learnt to live from the heart and not the money. Stop thinking about making money and start thinking about helping people.

Your  relationships,  branding , personal growth and value you give, I guarantee will keep your audience attentive and reaching for more.

Reach out, create an impact, all it takes is a decision, a belief , determination and passion. Be ready to make a difference and impact the life of someone. I know I am. Do not be afraid to be who you are.

Whatever story you have, share it, it sells and it sets you free to share a magical attraction with someone else. Live the dream, sell and tell your success story and it will create a desire in someone to reach  for what you have.

Together, Let’s have an Epiphany!!! See you at the top.

Let’s talk a brief walk.

Communication:Do It The Professional, First Class Way

To all my readers and viewers,  I had sad news, real sad news. I will be moving soon from WordPress, to a more permanent platform. But I promise not to leave you all, and would take you along with me. Stay in touch constantly and watch out for the next big move.

Sad news aside, we move on to the tip for the day. A How-to:  Not to long ago, I realized and or discovered that in every  business and in every profession, there is a need to communicate what that business or profession does for the customer. Do we all agree???… I take that as a YES.!!!

Sometimes we wrongly and rightly define communication, so let’s find a common ground.- It is a learned skill that is required in everything you will ever do. Every minute and penny spent on learning to communicate well will return your minutes and pennies many times over. You either do it the “Professional, First class way” or  the “Shoddy, Low class way”.

My guess is you all want to go professional. After all that’s the purpose  of this post. Professionalism – is doing the right thing for the customer. Sometimes the right thing isn’t selling your product or service to a person. Keep that in mind.

In other circumstances, a person who very much needs whatever product you have will want to argue with you about some silly thing.. they always do…but he/she is really just afraid of making a poor decision.

What do you do then? DON’T TURN YOUR BACK ON THEM. Why??? Part of the obligation of  being a professional is to get the customers what they really really need.

Focus on  finding people who want a product/service ( that helps people) rather than trying to force it on those who don’t want it. That’s how to communicate the professional-first class way.

Ready to go out there and make a difference (I am…)

Money Magnet : How To Attract Money Your Way

I’d be honest here with you. Money is tormenting. Frets me constantly, can I afford this? Should I buy that? Money is charged with a lot of emotion. It is certainly a weapon.

Being able to afford what you want makes you feel happy, liberated and empowered. Not having enough makes you feel trapped, resentful and unhappy. Lack of it – can also be a curse. Can anyone relate to that?

How do you feel about money? How do you feel when…

  • you look at or think of rich people?
  • you see something you want but can’t afford right now?
  • you look at your current possessions (like your house, your car, etc.)?
  • you look at or think about your paycheck and/or ability to make money in the future?
  • you pay the bills?
  • you visit someone who has a higher standard of living than you do?
  • your friend or family member blows a wad of cash on something you think is “frivolous”? Continue reading

Lego Blocks To A Successful Business

Business… is simply making someone’s life better. And that’s all business will ever be. Get the notion out of your head that it’s “an economic system in which goods and services are exchanged for one another or money, on the basis of their perceived worth.”… Absolute nonsense… As my little cousin would say..”poppycock”.

  • be a professional

This will ensure you can create wealth and also have the time to enjoy it. It will also ensure you are proud of what you have created.
