    You Will Never Get Away With Not Doing The Right Thing

    By Mar 05,2015

    Years ago, I had someone working for me who was making $10.00 an hour and involved in all sorts of dishonesty toward me and my companies. She was disappearing for long periods of time during the day doing personal things and billing me for her time. She was also addicted to negative gossiping that was getting back to me. When I had interviewed the woman, she had shared with me with various stories about how she had been very abusive to various men that had been in her life before – her father,

    You Need to Be Able to Close

    By Feb 04,2015

    The ability to ‘‘close’‘ and get the sale is the most important skill in selling. It’s something that few people know how to do. Many people can get a consumer, an employer, or others to the cusp of making a purchasing or a hiring decision; however, it’s the final ‘‘push’‘ that makes all the difference.

He even made American Express card commercials because of it! However, until you read his book, High Adventure, you don’t understand that Hillary had to grow into this success.

    Learn Something From the Upper and Lower Class: Do Not Be Paralyzed by Others’ Opinions

    By Feb 23,2015

    A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves obscure men whom timidity prevented from making a first effort; who, if they could have been induced to begin, would in all probability have gone to great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through the best we can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating risks and adjusting nice changes; it...

    Never Stop Using Your Imagination

    By Mar 04,2015

    It is amazing what people are able to do with the power of their imaginations. Steve Jobs became incredibly famous by taking things that already existed and imagining and creating new uses for them. The changes he made by using his imagination made him one of the most famous men in the world. Walt Disney imagined entirely new ways to entertain the world and his vision led to a global, multi-platform entertainment empire. The imagination of inventors brought us television, the light bulb, satellites, the telephone, and other incredible devices....

By Feb 18,2015

I remember my first encounters with the self-improvement industry when I was younger. In many areas of the United States, people look at self-improvement as something that is absolutely crazy. That is how the people around me viewed it when I was growing...
