No business is easy. We can try to break it down into manageable components but when it comes down to it, anyone can get lost in the details. I've been in business a long time, over 30 years and have been involved with thousands of businesses as a CPA, tax adviser and business mentor. The only easy business I was ever in was driving an ice cream truck. Loved that business but you can only make so much selling ice cream. Looking back, I probably didn't think it was so easy when the truck broke d

I've wasted far too much money signing up for "Stuff" and never really following through. I think every entrepreneur/opportunity seeker experiences this. That's why I know that by following my own 13 Success Principles getting Rich is inevitable. How and why is that? Because Success and Getting Rich is a Science. It's not luck. "God does not play dice" Albert EinsteinHere are 3 of the Principles I am applying to my Wealthy Affiliate business:1: DESIRE - find out what is driving you and make tha

So I haven't posted in over a week and that is certainly NOT going to help me reach my objective of getting 300 Premium Members by 12.31.18. The truth is that I've gotten a little distracted with end of summer fun and a few special client projects and I've slacked on my WA post. It's not that I haven't been putting in the work. Keyword research, website development, training...is all happening. Progress is being made. I am very, very optimistic reminding me of Principle # 10 Attitude.

I've run into way too many people that proudly say they work 7 days a week. I was one of those people and learned that I was not born just to work. I love my work. I love it so much most of the time it doesnt feel like work and that's where the problems start. For me anyway. I thought that the more I worked the more money I would make. That works if you are paid by the hour, then you get killed in taxes. LOL Thankfully I recognized this while my kids were growing up so I got to spend a lot of p

"Winning is a Habit" Vince LombardiThe chances of me getting 300 individuals to register as premium members before 12.31.18 by just visualizing and saying it, no matter how much I believe it will will happen are very, very, very slim. I do have Faith, a lot of Faith and under extreme circumstances if that was all I was able to do I believe it could happen. The fact is that I can do more, a lot more!Focus!Just "Doing" is not going to Do It . I’ve spent way too much time blindly “Doin

It takes Tenacity to succeed. All you have to do is look behind every successful person and you will find at some point, they could have given up. We have all done it, myself included. Just give up on an idea or a goal because of some "obsticle". Or better yet, "Put it on hold". Successful people just seem to stick it out and find a way, no matter what. When things don't go as planed successful people change the plan.I want to keep these post short so I'll get to the point - I have a lot on my

You set a date because you are giving the Universe instructions on Exactly what your objective is. It's as simple as that. There is a Science to getting the things that you want and when you follow the principles of that Science it has to work. When you add 1 + 1 you will always get 2. It's works the same way, only a little more complicated. LOL I didnt say it was easy, I said it was simple. The first thing about this science of getting "stuff" is that you want to be as specific as possible. I
