‘Tis the Season for a Knockout

While many people mistakenly excuse lack of productivity during the holiday period, NOW is the time when you can get out in front and gain some serious strides on the competition.

When I was in real estate, most of my colleagues went into hibernation mode in December. Since many people do not buy or sell houses around the holiday season, they rationalized taking it easy—big mistake! Read More

Legend of Dreams

Today I want to share a legend with you, a legend about dreams.

Long ago an old Lakota spiritual leader was on a high mountain and had a vision. In his vision, Iktomi, the great trickster and searcher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider. Iktomi spoke to him in a sacred language. As he spoke, Iktomi the spider picked up the elder’s willow hoop, which had feathers, horsehair, beads and offerings on it, and began to spin a web.

The Origin of an Obsession

I admit it. I have an obsession. And I know exactly who to blame: my grandmother.

It all started one afternoon shortly after my 8th birthday when my grandmother picked me up from school. This itself wasn’t unusual. My grandmother would often pick me up with an Igloo cooler in the back seat packed with the classic grandmother lunch: sliced fruit, chocolate milk and a bologna sandwich cut in two perfect crustless triangles.

WOW Beginnings (2 of 2)

In part two of our WOW Beginnings series, here’s a lesson I want to share with you: Go back to being a bit naïve.

You see, I think the older—and seemingly wiser and more experienced we become—the more we THINK we need to know the answers to questions and problems. Read More

WOW Beginnings (1 of 2)

In part 1 of this week’s series, I want to talk to you about WOW beginnings—businesses where young entrepreneurs hit it big early.

I want to share one such story with you. One disclaimer: I have a certain weakness for the business I am about to share with you…but more on that later.

In the summer of 1978 two friends, lets call them Cohen and Greenfield, opened a makeshift ice cream parlor in an abandoned gas station in northern Vermont of all places.  Read More

WOW Inspiration

Today and here in the U.S. we celebrate Veterans day, a day to honor those courageous souls who put their life on the lines in order to protect their country.

Veterans serve not only as a shining example of bravery, but also of inspiration, which I want to address in this week’s post.

In a culture that is obsessed with measuring talent and ability, we often overlook the importance of inspiration. Read More

WOW Work Ethic

I want to ask you a few questions.

Do you take pride in your work? Do you get up each and every day eager to get to work? Do you give your all no matter what each and every day?

And the ultimate question, do you think others are WOWed by your work ethic?

Rich Habits

Last week I shared with you the two Money Making Rules that I live and thrive by. To continue our theme of wealth, I’ve picked my favorite half-dozen rich habits.

Now let’s create a 30 day Get Rich Campaign:

Just for 30 days, exercise the habits of a rich person. Just 30, after that you can go back to poor habits if you like, but only for 30… until the next issue of SUCCESS magazine hits your mailbox, try on these habits. Read More
