Dreams by Langston Hughes, An Entrepreneur’s Creed

What set of beliefs do you have as an entrepreneur? You know, the ideas or convictions you wholeheartedly believe in, that keep you focused on your dream – a sort of entrepreneur’s creed.

servant leadership

Do You Have A Servant Leadership Mentality?

Servant Leadership – If you think about it, the two words really should cancel themselves out. A servant is one who serves and a leader is one who usually gets served. That’s the traditional way things have always been. The leader tells the masses what to do and they do it. But this is flawed thinking because an exceptional leader does the opposite. Fortunately, the role of leadership has been redefined over the past several years and a true leader, who is looked upon to make things happen, does it with a servant leadership mentality.

toxic people

TOXIC PEOPLE CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR BUSINESS

Toxic People Just Don’t Get It

Toxic people are everywhere. As network marketers, we want to be successful. After all, success is the name of our game! It’s the reason we do what we do each and every day. It’s what we wake up thinking about and what puts us to sleep at night! Entrepreneurs have adopted a lifestyle different from that of the average person. It’s one of a strong belief in something and the relentless energy to get their message across to others and ultimately helping them. This is what the entrepreneur does and because of it, he/she usually has to deal with another group of people whose goal, it seems, is to dissuade them from their mission. These people just don’t get it. They have many names: haters, naysayers, unbelievers, pessimists or negative people. And they’re all toxic!

your personal development

SILVER SPOONS AND YOUR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Your Personal Development

Your personal development! ¬†Something we need to talk about! Back in the mid-80s, there was a sitcom that was popular to kids everywhere about a 12 year old boy who was reunited with his rich dad. As the son of a rich man, he had everything a kid could want. His room alone was a giant toy chest and thinking back I remember wondering what it would have been like to be a kid and not have to want for anything. Yes, I was an adult at that time but I had kids. And who, truthfully, has never wanted their kids to have everything their hearts desired especially when you could only afford to get them the basics. The kid in that sitcom was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that meant he didn’t have to worry about money…ever! Continue reading “SILVER SPOONS AND YOUR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT”

you are your own boss

YOU ARE YOUR OWN BOSS!

You Are Your Own Boss

When you join a network marketing company, you are your own boss! One of the lures of being an entrepreneur is to be able to “fire your boss” and become your own. We’ve all had one or two or more in our time and we know that bosses are doing the work for a higher up who’s doing the work for another higher up and so on. In all cases, the employees at the bottom are the ones who are pressured and sometimes bullied and always dumped on. The expectation of accomplishing many tasks in an unrealistic time frame comes with the fear of retaliation from the boss or one or more of those higher ups. The boss is under pressure too and uses that pressure to make his subordinates feel pressure too. Continue reading “YOU ARE YOUR OWN BOSS!”
