Thanks to Happy Publishing for posting this quote recently…it is a really timely and well-spoken idea. I agree wholeheartedly. BTW, I’ve seen that this quote is regularly attributed to Abraham Lincoln. As best I can tell, this is not actually the case, and William J. H. Boetcker is the correct p...

Show anyone on the street a balance sheet, and they will likely not be able to make sense of it. Show anyone on the street a P&L, and they likely won’t even know what it is. Show anyone on the street articles of incorporation for a promising new start up company, and their eyes will glaze over. ...

“There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.” William F. Halsey This one really works for me today. Halsey had it right in my opinion. I’ve consistently found it amazing what you can get done when you simply have to get it done…no option. ...

I’m a big fan of quitting. Sometimes it’s just the right thing to do. Get rid of the dead weight every once in a while, I say! Sometimes when you’re in a business that’s just not working or when you have an investment that’s not performing, it’s just the right thing to do…cut it loose! One of th...

CNBC, Jim Cramer, pundits left and right today are talking about the DOW going up, how things are looking good now, and NOW is the time to get back into the market. NOW is the time to buy big homes, new cars, stock in bankrupt companies, etc. I guess…is that what they’re actually saying? I mean,...

The biggest criticism of being in sales is that it’s so unpredictable. “Hogwash”, I say! But wait…most people in sales DO have hugely unpredictable incomes. So what gives? Is it really possible to make an actual, consistent income when you’re self-employed? I argue that your sales income, even i...

Jim Collins is interviewed in the latest issue of Inc. I loved this interview and wanted to share one piece of it with you. You may know Jim Collins from his writing. He’s the author of “Built to Last” and “Good to Great”, two best-selling business books. He has some poignant insight to share he...

The almighty dollar. OK, here’s how you get it… Set a goal. Make a plan to achieve said goal. Work like a dog. A well-groomed, well-mannered dog that is. Guess what. You may not ever make $10M. You may not ever make $100M…whatever your goal is does not matter. That’s what I’m talking about. My p...
