JULY 2016

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Is Living A Few Years Of Your

Life Like Most People Won’t,

So That You Can Spend The

Rest Of Your Life Like

Most People Can’t.

                  -Unknown-

 

Dream It, or Live It…the choice is yours.

 

Blake Mallen, a very successful entrepreneur, once told me, “The moment you stop doing what you think you are supposed to do, and start doing what you were meant to do, is when the script ends and life beginsâ€.  Is it time for you to break from the script and go after a life that offers you greater flexibility, freedom and independence?

 

Studies show that 82% of Americans say they would like to own their own business.  But, only 5% will ever realize this dream.  Perhaps that can be best explained by a quote from Brian Tracey.  Mr. Tracey has said, “A thousand dreams die unborn every day because the dreamer lacks the courage to take the first stepâ€.

 

Please allow me to describe a common scenario…You are ready for a career change-you get the urge to tell your boss what she / he can do with the latest company policy. The reality of corporate life is becoming more painful …job security is an illusion…your work and income are being dictated by someone else…your employer isn’t investing in your future.  Now, your brain is on a mental trampoline and you exclaim, “Well, why don’t I invest in myself?† Then, your mind begins to race back and forth between the known reality of the uncertain life in corporate America, and the unknown aspects of how you can get independence through business ownership. If you are one of the 82% don't let the "FUD (Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt) Factor" stop you. 

 

Overcoming the FUD Factor

 

There is a book written by John Ortberg, If you want to walk on water, you’ve got to get out of the boat. The “boat†is what you hang on to, or whatever represents safety and security to you and that which pulls you away from the high adventure you actually seek. For many, moving towards the dream of being a business owner is simply letting go of the boat we call “corporate Americaâ€.  What it really entails is going after what you were made to do, leaving the illusory lifeboat behind and setting sail for uncharted waters.

 

If owning your own business has been an aspiration of yours, do you want to continue to dream, or are you ready to take that first step towards turning your dream into reality?

 

Perhaps you are like the clients I work with every day…

  • Want to leave their corporate America job, or
  • Already in career transition,
  • Desire to be self-employed,
  • But, don't know what type of business is right for them, where or how to start the process.

Would this scenario be of interest and value to you…a process where you receive assistance to help you better identify your goals, financial requirements, lifestyle needs and what you would like for your work-life to look like; then provided information on self-employment options and guidance on exploring these opportunities within the confines of a supportive, educational and no-obligation environment?   

 

Have a job you don’t like?  Seek other employment…I call that “Changing Your Curtainsâ€.  Perhaps, you prefer a bolder approach which may provide a new and invigorating work-life…I refer to that as “Changing Your Viewâ€.  In 2001, I decided to “Change My Viewâ€.  If you are ready…Let’s Talk.  I can help you “Change Your View†too…

    • Most had Jones at the top. Anderson and Eric Monroe were after him in various orders. 
    • Two good friends probably hoping they can play together, but I haven’t heard of any interest on Texas’ end. Holton played corner. Anderson is a safety all the way.
    • I'll be further east, near the Arkansas border. But I hear we have a good shot for rain Saturday evening. Only supposed to be a half inch though. Maybe more where your pond is at. Where I'll be, they calling for all-day rain with lows in the low 30s which should be fun.
    • SHA In your line of work I'm sure you're in good with the rain gods. Please ask them for rain in Kaufman County. My duck ponds are dry.
    • I don't know that a door closed. I know there are plenty of schools seeking his services. We're losing DeShon Elliott and Anderson might make a nice home there if PJ Locke isn't up to the task. Ole Miss lists Anderson as 6'1, 221 lbs. Thats almost the same as DE with similar skills. He will be a junior and with a great showing, could be a one and done. I don't think it would have much effect on the young guns coming in. There's two safeties in that group – BJ Foster and Caden Sterns. It would be great to be able to redshirt them. Having Anderson around would certainly help make that happen. All that said, I have no idea if this is the out of nowhere guy. Would be cool if it is.
