We all have 24 hours in our day, 168 hours in a week. Fundamentally we all perform pretty much the same actions everyday. We eat, sleep, think, talk and listen.


Gold medlist eat and sleep, as do people 30 pounds overweight. Successful entrepreneurs think, feel and have relationships with other people. So do people who are unemployed or even living on the street.


So what is the difference, it’s not hereditary, education, looks or inheritance. It’s the simple, positive actions we chose everyday, repeated over time. Its the simple error in judgement repeated over time.


We know what we are supposed to eat, fresh fruits, vegetables, more fish and poultry than beef etc.. that is simple. But why do so many of us chose to go out and chow down on cheeseburgers and fries every day?


Because it won’t kill us. at least not today. It may take 30 years. It’s not 1 junk food meal it’s the thousands over time. Not eating it won’t save you either today but compounded over time it can and probably will. A simple positive action or a simple error in judgment, simple but not easy.


Read something motivational and inspirational or watch a fictional drama on tv. Hit the treadmill in the morning or sit and watch the morning news eating a donut and drinking coffee. We could go on and on.

Having spent most of my adult life engaged in sales and marketing as well as a decade of preparing income tax returns for small businesses, individuals and real estate investors. Running your own business is not easy, you must utilize all the tools available to aid in your business development, I believe your personal development is equally important. I have for many years had knowledge and interest in small and medium sized businesses as it relates to allowable deductions, tax deferred exchanges and other tax treatments, I have also, for many years invested in books, tapes/cds for inspiration and motivation, so it seemed a natural fit for me to become involved in aiding in people in business development as well as their personal development.
