Eliminating Anxiety When Giving Two Weeks’ Notice

Eliminating Anxiety When Giving Two Weeks' Notice

About a year ago I wrote a post about switching jobs and increasing my pay substantially by doing so. Well once again, I’m leaving my current job for another huge pay increase. This time around though, I had a really hard time dealing with the stress and anxiety involved with giving my two weeks’ notice. Since the experience is still fresh I wanted to share some of the things I noticed and how I was able to deal with it. This most definitely isn’t my first time giving notice but as far as I can remember it was the most … Read More

Maximizing Your Income Potential and Thriving in the Corporate World

Maximizing Your Income Potential and Thriving in the Corporate World

It’s been about two months since my last post (at the time of starting this draft), which is honestly surprising to me because I thought it’d been much longer.  Life got busy.  Work became demanding, my side business grew, and time became scarce.  Writing here wasn’t the only thing that got pushed by the wayside. I was also getting into Tony Robbins latest book, MONEY Master The Game, right about the same time I stopped posting, and at the same time I stopped reading.  Lastly, I spent years expanding my skill set as a drummer when I was younger and … Read More

Reflection and Change – Everybody’s Doing it This Time of Year

Reflection and Change - Everybody's Doing it This Time of Year

Another year gone by as I sit and reminisce on the past.  So many cherished memories and good times had.  It’s funny when I think about a lot of the great moments from my past it seems like they just happened yesterday, but actually they were many years ago.  Time really does fly.  Looking back on the good times really makes me miss the way life used to be.  Thinking back to my early twenties, there was such an abundance of free time, although I thought I was busy back then.  I didn’t have much money or income, but money … Read More

Financial Poverty Vs. Poverty of Time

Financial Poverty Vs. Poverty of Time

There are two types of poverty in the modern world.  One form, the more obvious of the two is scarcity of money.  The second form is slightly less obvious to those who are caught up in the social norms.  Those who belong to the second category may be able to make enough money to service the monthly payments on a big house, new car, expensive clothes, and spending habits.  You may call them the “middle class” but I call them the second variation of poverty.  Money may not be as scarce to them as the first group mentioned, but the … Read More

Logic and Action in the Absence of Emotion and Balance – The Overachievers Downfall

Logic and Action in the Absence of Emotion and Balance - The Overachievers Downfall

I’ve been drawn to highly intelligent entrepreneur  types for nearly a decade now who publish their own books, create an endless amount of content, turn their passions into a business, brand themselves, monetize what they’ve created, market to the audience that they’ve developed, and continuously strengthen their intellect.  These are individuals who are not only at the top quartile of intelligence, but who have used that strength to take massive action while believing in themselves to get to where they are. As someone who is drawn to this, I too have read a countless number of books, viewed a massive … Read More

Value Creation, The Gratification of Giving, and True Understanding

Value Creation, The Gratification of Giving, and True Understanding

Everyone wants to have more money just as much as everyone wants to be happy.  The problem most people have is that their focus is on something completely arbitrary, that being the money itself.  You can focus on money all day long and that isn’t going to get you any more of it. So what do you have to focus on to make more money if it isn’t money itself?  Creating value.  More specifically, creating value for other people.  Other people will be the source of the money you want to make and the level of success you have will … Read More

If You Belong to This Group, You Will Not Succeed in Internet Business

Internet Business

I’ve noticed a trend over the past few years where those who had success as first-movers into the internet marketing realm are now leveraging their past success to position themselves as experts and use that positioning to continue their success. I see nothing wrong with this however if you’re someone interested in achieving what these people already have, there are some sobering facts you need to accept before your greed glands are tapped and you become blinded by an unrealistic belief that great success can be achieved through minimal effort. Those who are blinded will open their wallets and allow … Read More

Why You Should Start a Side Business if You’re Working For Someone Else

Start your own internet business

Speaking from experience, the reason you should start your own business on the side if you are currently working for someone else can be compared to diversifying an investment portfolio.  If your portfolio is strictly made up of fixed income investments (bonds), you get a predictable, relatively small rate of return, with minimal risk, assuming they’re not junk bonds. The interest rate for holding that bond is known a head of time. It’s predictable. Stocks on the other hand are more volatile.  There’s much more risk, but at the same time, much greater potential to earn a significantly larger return. … Read More

Cure Disease and Escape Poverty With This Proven Method

Mind-body connection

Why is it that such a large percentage of people live out their entire existence in poverty?  What prevents them from ever taking action to change their circumstances and eliminate the pain of going without some of the necessities in life, not knowing where your next meal is coming from, always having to go without, in an endless stream of sacrifice?  Ask anyone if they had the choice between having money, or not, and it’s fairly easy to predict the answer to that question.  But when you look at the level of poverty in the world today, many of those … Read More

Free Your Time and Reclaim Your Life

best self development blog

There’s a common misconception built into our culture that to make more money we have to be doing something complex.  Something that’s difficult, challenging, stressful, regardless of whether or not it brings you enjoyment.  If I want to make good money I need to go to law school and practice law.  I need to endure medical school and be a doctor.  I need to take on responsibility, or get a more advanced degree. For some people they may actually like doing these things, but for most, I believe it’s simply a means to an end.  The last thing I want … Read More
