    Do What You Say: Mission, Life Purpose & Business Ethics

    It’s the first day of the Chinese New Year today so Happy  New Year! I know it’s a little later than January 1st, but I’ve been practicing congruence! Go ahead and click on the word if you want.  I’ll wait…

    Congruence means living in alignment with your highest values. In honor of the new year and that resolution of yours that you haven’t broken (yet…), in this short video, I’m talking about your mission, life purpose, and your business ethics.

    Also, keep an eye out for cameos by Tiger Woods and my nemesis, Dr. BORING Brown, and be sure to look carefully at my left arm–What is that furry black little critter there??

    You’ll really want to  know the secret to success that I reveal here:

    I wasn’t kidding when I said write down your top principles. Put them where you can see them every day!

    Congruence is when you do what you say and are true to yourself, your mission and life purpose, and your business ethics.  Take heed, my friends, of this secret of success!

    Onwards,

    P.S. That little critter in my left arm is Punkin, our five-pound little tea cup poodle.  She’s about 14 years old and such a little sweetie!

        Stress Tension: How to Have the Most Stressful Holiday Imaginable! Part 2

        Stress Tension: How to Have the Most Stressful Holiday Imaginable! Part 2

        Remember friend, our goal for Stress Tension: How to Have the Most Stressful Holiday Imaginable! Part 1 and Part 2 is for you to have the worst holiday ever! Stop trying to make everything look like a Currier & Ives print and instead let holiday stress tension be the spice of your life this holiday season!

        So, how do you destroy the holidays in record time, hon?

        You should have started with Halloween. Instead of just a simple jack-o-lantern, I trust that you decorated your entire yard, littering it with fiberglass cobwebs, lighted witches, little ghosts hanging in the trees, and bloodied hands that jumped when their motion detectors were triggered. I also trust you had the Halloween candy ready. Gobs of it. And it should have been pricey Godiva, not the “milk chocolate food” at the Dollar Store.  The little buggers deserved a treat after all, even if it broke your bank account.  Financial stress is good for you,  you know.

        And now, how do you experience the most holiday stress possible while destroying the spirit of Christmas and Hanukkah?  Back to the final four tips in our Horrible Holiday How-To, guaranteed to extinguish any holiday cheer you might muster:

        5. Whatever you do this holiday season, don’t give anything to charity. Don’t cook at the soup kitchen, don’t create an angel tree for donations of gifts for needy children. Don’t put a nickel–or even a penny–in the Salvation Army’s bucket. Don’t do anything but contemplate the bump on the end of your nose.

        6. Get really, really worried about that bump. It seems to have changed shape. What if it’s cancerous?! Read about skin cancer for hours and bemoan your fate.  Be sure to complain about it to your friends, if you have any left. (Be a true friend and stress them out about it too!)

        7. Oh, and about your friends….Forget about your old, dear friends. They’re from the past and the past is past. Live in the present. Don’t get nostalgic, and for goodness sakes, don’t even think about those who have died. Life is for the living. Forget about everyone else this holiday.

        8. Finally, refuse to believe in reindeer, Santa Claus, Jack Frost, the Grinch, and any of the other magical holiday stuff. Be sure to tell everyone that those are just “cultural icons.” And whatever you do, don’t think about what the holidays meant for you when you were a child. Bah, humbug!

        On the contrary, if you really want to be radical, you could unplug the TV, turn off the computer, and bury your cell phone in the back yard. And if you want to be downright revolutionary, you could stop the gift-giving frenzy and give the gift of love, heartfelt listening, beautiful caroling, and funny family stories to those you care about–including yourself–this holiday season.

        Holiday stress or a soulful holiday.  It’s your choice, isn’t it?

            Overcome Fear & Make it Happen as Successful Entrepreneurs

            Overcome Fear & Make it Happen as Successful Entrepreneurs

            Question: Barnsley, I am in the process of starting a new business. I have done extensive research for the business and believe that it’s an excellent opportunity. The issue I have is analysis paralysis. How do I overcome the fear of moving forward? Rich in Cary, NC

            My Answer: Rich, I love your question, and thanks for your honesty. Analysis paralysis is a common problem in our society since so MUCH information is always coming at us through the media, the internet, our cell phones, and every other gadget we own. Everywhere we go (even the bathroom, right?), there’s some kind of information for us to consume.

            Rich, what I have to say to you is that FEAR CANNOT CO-EXIST WITH ACTION! So to release this fear you’re experiencing, all you’ve got to do is take one small step EVERY DAY to manifest your dream.

            Here’s what I suggest. Make a list in which you BREAK DOWN what you need to do to get going into TINY steps. Here are some examples: Fill out application for business license, call insurance agent for business insurance quote, start setting up a blog, send out an email to everyone in my address book letting them know about my dream and asking them for referrals, go to LEADS group at the Chamber, etc.

            Just brainstorm everything you possibly can and get it down on your list, and if it is a bigger item, like create a website, break it down into small steps: Buy my domain name, select hosting company, create “About Rich” page, make list of specific benefits and results I can give my clients for home page, etc.

            Now, get a timer and set it to spend just 10 minutes on your dream each day AT A SET TIME OF THE DAY! (Getting into action is easier once we make something a habit!) I bet after 10 minutes you’ll be so into the one step you’re doing that you’ll keep going!

            Just aim for ONE step per day and if you don’t finish it, carry it over to the next day.

            Rich, when you get rolling, I guarantee your fear will dissipate and your excitement will GROW! Get on the path to work you love! What an incredible journey you have in front of you–Savor it!

            Now make that list and get that timer set, okay? (Egg timers work great, by the way…Don’t you have one in the kitchen right now??)

            Onwards!
