God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~William A. Ward
I am about to share one of the most effective techniques to enhance the well-being of those around you. It is a gift that does not involve money. It’s the gift of gratitude.
I am so grateful to social media because it allows me to stay connected to those who have impacted my life. It also makes me aware of the impact my words and actions have in the lives of others. Over the past year I have run into people that I have not seen in months or even years. They are usually very happy to see me and then…… it happens!
They start thanking me and telling me how much i inspire them or how much they are inspire by my Facebook Page. The acknowledgment of my efforts to be positive in social media is an incredible gift that warms my heart and puts a huge smile on my face every time. It reminds me to not miss opportunities to thank or praise someone and give them the same pleasure.
Who can you thank today?
The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson
Olson takes the concept of compounded interest to a whole new level. His premis: If you will just put a penny’s worth of effort each day towards your goals, over time you will achieve them. If you are to be a successful CEO, make the Slight Edge philosophy a part of your daily attitude. Making a business work takes a lot of time and effort. Your effort must be a little bit every day, and consistant.
Raving Fans by Ken Blanchard
Blanchards work focuses on organizaiton excellence presented in the form of “legendary customer service”What is a raving fan? The premis: “If you really want to ‘own’ a customer, if you want a booming business, you have to go beyond satisfied customers and create Raving Fans.” A raving fan is an advocate of your products or services in the marketplace and an integral part of successful businesses.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
Habits are a matter of choice. In this book Covey dives into the depths of our attitudes (paradigms) and principles to help us identify “where we are coming from”. Once we can identify which of our paradigms are keeping us from interacting effectively with others, then and only then can we truly begin to work on changing them.
The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber
Gerber’s book is all about why most small businesses don’t work. To me it is the very summation of the definition of insanity seen in the business world everyday. Don’t get caught in the rat trap and the lie of entreprenuership, thereby only creating a glorified job for your self. Discover the Five core leadership skils as defined by Gerber: Vision, Discrimination, Strategic Thinking, Commitment, and Inspirational Communication. A definite must read for CEO’s
Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This is likely the book every most CEO’s have read as budding entreprenuers, or at least has been told it is a must read. Who wouldn’t want to learn how to just think about being rich and have it happen? Published in the 1930s, the personal issues Hill wrote about Like the thoughts and behaviors that hinder people’s success in acquiring riches are still relevant today.

Want to know how your personal credit will affect your business? Don’t miss the Do It Yourself Credit Repair Workshop!
Obviously, if you currently have poor or bad credit history, it’s best to work on improving the status of your credit first before submitting your business loan application. Otherwise, you may just get declined by your lender. Banks and lending companies seek out applicants with good or excellent personal credit history.
You see the advertisements in newspapers, on TV, and on the Internet. They all make the same claims: “Credit problems? No problem!” “We can erase your bad credit – 100% guaranteed.” Do yourself a favor and save some money, too. Don’t believe these statements. Only time, a conscious effort, and a personal debt repayment plan will improve your credit report.
This workshop will include:
• How you can improve your credit worthiness and legally dispute negative information on your report.
• How to obtain a free credit report and understand your credit rating.
• Understanding the credit scoring system.
• Secrets to getting business capital with less than perfect personal credit.
Bring a recent copy of your credit report and get it reviewed by an expert!
