Are You an Entrepreneur? Get Your Mind Ready!

Have you heard of these statements? “It cost to be the Boss or A 40 hour workweek is a vacation to an entrepreneur or a business owner.” These sayings can make working at a job or working for someone else seem tame compared to working as a business owner or entrepreneur. Truth be told some days as an entrepreneur can really be challenging and make you wish for those days of putting work down at 5pm and starting back over at 9am. When you made the decision to step out on faith to pursue your passion, you immediately became the leader you once complained about. The difference now is that you have the power to do something about your complaints; now the buck stops with you!

However no matter how challenging it gets, you cannot put a price tag on the value of work that an entrepreneur is pursuing especially a work of and with purpose. It all starts with your mindset and energy. That energy encompasses the physical, mental as well as the spiritual to make sure you are bringing all that you have to the table because this endeavor will take all that you have to give and more.  Your mind is constantly on your ideas, solutions to challenges and other opportunities that even when you are on vacation, you are always seeking that needle in the haystack opportunity to capitalize on, be it monetarily or personal development.

Your environment will play a huge part in your mental scope of how productive you can be on a daily basis. It is amazing how one word of encouragement from a family member can motivate you to accomplish a task and build momentum for more challenges. So make sure there is positive communication flowing from those around you and if this is not the case, find a different environment or get new friends altogether because your destiny is at stake. I hope this blog empowers you into taking action to give yourself a chance and remember; “If it’s meant to be, then it’s up to me!

Insurance Policy Tips!

I am glad that all of you have your insurance policies in place. Grab a seat and get your pencil and pad in front of you because I have been coming across some interesting tidbits working with clients and prospects that I want to share regarding your insurance policies. These tips are going to follow what we learned in school a few years ago; the what, when, where, why and how questioning method.

Do you know what type of insurance policies you have in force? Do you know when you purchased your policies and if they are expiring or has any cash value? Do you know where your policies are located ie, safe deposit box, file cabinet or under the mattress? Do you understand why you purchase those particular policies? Here is a big one; do you know how much coverage you have in place and if this coverage amount is enough?

As we get older, our family situations change and the policies you purchased some time ago may or may not be in your best interest to keep. This is a call to action for you to have a policy review with your insurance agent or give me a call or email. I work with many people on structuring their base financial needs on a solid foundation. Check out www.theneedforcoverage.com for insurance information and/or go to our contact page to have us contact you.

What Does Leadership Look Like?

Hello my friends,

Do you know what leadership look like? In many companies and organizations throughout the world, leadership is looking more and more like a joke. You have to search through an organization for days at a time or wait for a catastrophic event to take place to find your real leaders. About a week ago in a discussion with a few colleagues over lunch, the topic centered on leadership and when will real leaders be allowed to lead. You may know of a few people in leadership positions that for some reason or another, have lost touch in developing and leading their teams the right way. We are not simply talking about leading a team or department to a very high number for goals but simply just having the attributes that builds trust in those team members that they are responsible for leading.

We have heard and known for some time now all of the buzz words for leadership; having vision, integrity, trust, character, firm, etc… and these attributes are paramount in true leadership.  I recall a particular coach would say to his teams before the game, “To go out and play the game the right way.” The players or workers in turn would say the coach; “To lead us in the right way.” People are smarter and more in tuned with what’s going on around them than they get credit for. This statement, “Please don’t piss on my head and tell me that it’s raining” is becoming the buzz word from team members describing the communication style and strategies used by their managers when it comes to delivering information. People are starting to recognize the difference and leaders need to keep this in mind when it comes to communicating and leading others.

Many times the position title of leadership can actually trump the person’s leading ability when it comes to getting their teams developed to achieve their goals. to reach another level. Have you ever came across a person  that was in a managerial role and used their title to trump  their subordinates ideas, project accomplishments or even belittle them to their colleagues or superiors. Leadership doesn’t look like this!

Again what does Leadership look like? Great positive leadership comes in many different forms and we won’t touch all of them in this post however a few things come to mind when looking at leadership. Leadership have vision to see things in front or at a higher level when others are looking behind, on the sides or not looking at all. Leadership stand and make the difficult decision that is right for the situation and organization even if this means standing by themselves. Leadership operates with integrity knowing that everyone may not be treated the same however they do their best to treat their team members right and fair. Leadership seeks input from others understanding that not one person has all of the answers. Leadership understands and accepts that not all ideas or decisons will be a success and they take full responsibility and learn from it. Leadership recognizes those persons skilled in the areas of development and execution of strategy in attaining goals and implementing ideas which can lead to creating value for the organization over time.

I applaud those that have earned the mantle of being promoted to a leadership position at your particular workplace and I know that this duty was not easily earned. When you see real leadership at work on any level, do your best to recognize, acknowledge and grow it, because in the absence of real leadership you jeopardize the core of the organization that will lead to mass exodus of talented people onward in search being led by leaders and/or becoming one themselves.

For every promotion of leadership you attained, make sure to continue to sharpen your leadership skills by reading books, masterminding with other leaders and attending leadership seminars and classes. After all of the reading, talking and learning, most importantly, leadership recognizes opportunity, communicate the opportunity and challenge their group to take it on. Leadership get in the heads and hearts of their team members, the ears of the customers and the eyes of the competitors. Why? In order to understand and be able to stand in front to determine, engage and influence the marketplace to follow the leader. This is what leadership in my eyes look like! Please share your thoughts and ideas about what leadership looks like to you.

Be the Leader you are Looking for!

Celebrating Life’s Moments!

How do you celebrate life’s moments? Are you going out to eat, hanging with friends or reading a good book to enjoy those moments? Everyday our lives are made up with many moments for celebrations however we may get caught up in looking for those big moments and overlooking the smaller ones. For you that is on the road to higher achievements in life, take time to really smell the roses, not just put the rose to your nose and recall what a rose smell like. Take the time to call on others that has shared a positive experience with you, it never fails, they may bring up an experience or two that you completely forgot about to give your more reason to laugh and enjoy. These are the moments where our experiences are worth celebrating! I challenge each and everyone to write down what you are giving to life and how you enjoy it. Yes we can take up much time writing or talking about the many issues and challenges going on around us and spend little time on the positive items and things worth celebrating. Just remember the next time you celebrate to invite me for reminding you!

Make today your best day!

Khan Academy – A Unique Way of Teaching!

Hello my friends,

I came across an article about Sal Khan, Khanacademy.org, in the September 6, 2010 issue of Fortune magazine titled, “Bill Gates Favorite Teacher” by David A. Kaplan. We all have heard of a guy name Bill Gates of Microsoft’ s Fame ,who is one of Khan’s academy’s biggest fan by the way he and his 11 year old son Rory soaks up the learning videos. This academy is a free one man educational platform operated in his revamped bedroom closet that he calls his office and the class lessons are doled out in brief video tutorial mini lecturers all narrated by Khan on youtube and elsewhere that is made simply with audio and an electronic blackboard filled with doodles and diagrams. 

As Mr. Kaplan states it, “Khan Academy holds the promise of a virtual school: an educational transformation that de-emphasizes classrooms, campus and administrative infrastructure, and even brand-name instructors. Sal Khan is a very intelligent man, being valedictorian of his high school graduation class, MBA from Harvard, three degrees from MIT, President of his class at MIT and also did volunteer teaching in Brookline for talented children, as well as developed software to teach children with ADHD. In his professional career life he was a former Hedge Fund manager.

Not only did I get a chance to read and research this online academy, I also got a chance to learn and relearn many subjects (math, science) and new topics about the economy. Will this type of learning replace the standard classroom learning with accredited teachers and professors? Probably not in this early stage of the game however I do feel like this is a great supplemental learning platform that is assisting students all around the world. My daughter, Lauryn, just started Kindergarten and I am making a commitment to have Khan Academy tutorials with her at least once a week starting out. With the way the internet has changed the way we conduct and transact our daily lives, I am glad that Khan had the vision to use his talent in a unique and positive way for not only our kids but our educational development also. Check it out for yourself at www.khanacademy.org and lend me your comments or experiences. 

Make it HAPPEN!!!
