Every time I have ever seen someone drive a sharp bargain, it has ended up coming back at the person in some negative way. People who get paid more than they are worth, or who receive more benefit than they provide, always run into problems and have difficulty achieving success. The most successful people in the world are, for the most part, the ones who give more value than they receive. They contribute so much value that people want to do business with them, to buy their products and services over and over again. When Icontinue reading >>
One of the most important things for you to realize when looking for a job and you see a position advertised is this: the employer wants to hire you.

By far, the most effective strategy for getting a job is to look where other people are simply not looking. People who do things...continue reading >>
Being in the asphalt business in Detroit taught me very early on that things frequently go wrong. In fact, things go wrong so frequently, it is difficult to believe: Pumps break. Tanks break. Trucks break. People get injured. Employees do not show up to work. It rains. The police give you a hard time for the condition of your equipment. People do not pay you for the work you have done for them. Suppliers go out of business. Customers get incredibly angry with you. Accidents occur, and materials get spilled on roadways. People rob you. People...continue reading >>

One of the greatest lessons you can ever learn is that you shouldn’t be doing anything you don’t enjoy. In fact, your job and your entire life should be one big bowl of monkeys full of excitement and enjoyment. You should enjoy getting up...
