Business is tough.   Running your own business is even harder.   Especially when you are management, sales, and accounting staff all in one.   When you are in the business world, rejection is a part of the territory.   Everyone from Zuckerberg to Buffett have to been rejected.   I have become somewhat of a rejection expert.   That is because I am rejected Every. Single. Day.   I am actually getting rejected multiple times per day.   People snark, get upset, and sometimes even laugh at me.   If you are in any industry that comes […]

I Get Rejected Over 50 Times Per Month, Here Is ...

      I hear people complaining that they can’t get ahead.   They want to leave the cubicle for the corner office, but it feels like they will never get there.   They watch others get promoted, while they have been in the same position for the last 5 years.   It’s funny, it’s almost like they are waiting for someone to walk up and hand them a promotion.   Here’s a little secret.   Promotions take work, it’s not going to just happen.   Actually, they take a lot of work.   Repeat after me: You are not […]

The Secrets To Getting Really Good At Your Job and ...

    Have you noticed a trend?   It would be hard to miss if you have ever read a news feed.   Every article is plastered with morning routine advice. That advice is always followed up with wake up early.   What are you supposed to do with that early morning time they say?   Mediate (or just sleep sitting up because it’s 5am).   Journal.   Eat Breakfast.   Affirmations.   Do advanced acrobatics.   Read the latest book Bill Gates recommends.   The list goes on..   Here’s something new, you do not have to wake up […]

Please Stop Telling Me I Need to Wake Up Early ...

      Here in Florida, we experience hurricanes that can devastate an entire city. They can turn a city into complete chaos (a la hurricane Harvey and Irma). The good thing about hurricanes, is that we know when they are coming. We can prepare by stocking up on water bottles, canned food, and flashlights.   In the midwest, they have a force of nature that can cause the same damage, but arrives like a thief in the night. Tornados. They destroy cities without any warning. There’s no time to prepare, and no time to evacuate the city.   I […]

How We Travel The World For Free

  Let’s get real. Money is something that we must have in order to thrive. A tool that can unlock a world of time and freedom. Yet, many of us spend so little time actually thinking about it.   Maybe you have been taught to fear money. It was a taboo topic to discuss in your household so you resent the thought of it.   Well, today I want to shift that mindset. I want to make money easy for you to think and talk about. It’s not a taboo topic, it’s something to be discussed, taught, and truly thought […]

7 Ways to Become Awesome With Your Money

  Let me get a show of hands.   Who has ever bought something from Amazon and said to themselves: “This is such a good decision, that I am going to sell this at a garage sale one day!”   **Crickets Chirping***   Now, let me ask you another question.   I hate questions.   Just one more.   Fine.     How often do you ask yourself “Will this particular “thing” increase my happiness or well being?”   Not for a week, or a month, but long term.   I am not suggesting to only go out and buy […]

Every Action You Take Is A Vote – Make It ...

    Ah, the student loan.   It made life so easy when we needed it most. Until the massive debt monster revealed itself after graduation. Most of us college graduates have them. If you do, don’t stress. I want to make the payoff process easier for you.   We paid off my wife’s $21,000 loan in less than a year, on a modest salary. You can do the same, you just have to be willing to put in the work.   If you’re ready to crush your student loans, keep your eyeballs moving. But first, some fun student loan […]

The 7 Best Ways to Pay Down Your Student Loans ...

      Have you ever been told you need to spend money to make money?   Many of us are not fed with a silver spoon, handed a pile of cash, or given any break on life. To me, this is not a bad thing, it actually builds character and gives us the tenacity we need to become who we are.   We begin to develop a callus to adversity. It gets easier every time. With everything that life throws at us, we can figure out how to weather the storm.   We are the Builders.   Since we […]

The Cheapest Ways To Become A Millionaire

  I am constantly brushing off advice that I’ve heard my entire life. Eat more vegetables. Floss daily.  Read more often. The keys to happiness are people not things. Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. We seem to think we are above listening to these cliches. That we are too smart to become inspired by such piddly wisdom.   What if we changed this?   Yes, we need to push ourselves to think deeper. We need to satisfy our craving to learn and grow. But, why ignore timeless wisdom that clearly will improve […]

The Keys To Life Are In The Cliche´

        I am constantly sounding the alarm, telling people that the best time to invest is today. As we all know, just telling someone to do something won’t get the job done. So I am going to put my words where my mouth is and show you the magical powers of compound interest.   I want to start our compound interest journey with a story:   In 2015, there was a man who bought a penny that was minted in 1792 for $2.5 million.   Yes, you read that correctly. A PENNY.   I remember reading this […]
