Most of you don’t have a time management problem…you have an energy management problem. Let me explain: I recently met a woman at one of my coaching seminars in Calgary who told me the reason why she wasn’t accomplishing more of what she wanted was because she had an issue with time management. I told her, “No, you don’t. I’m so sick of people talking about time management. If one more person tells you to find a better way to balance your schedule, get rid of them.”
Let me tell you something: running a business – a legitimate business – is TOUGH. Those who tell you any different are lying.
One of the questions I’m asked most often is how I start my day. Those who’ve seen me speak or been around me for more than 2 minutes know I’m a fireball. My mind runs 100 miles per hour, my mouth moves just as fast as my mind thinks, and I’m always thinking 15 steps ahead. What can I say – it’s my entrepreneurial spirit 😉
My dad, Jim, was born in Nebraska. He was a simple man. A farmer. A hard worker. Before passing, my father instilled in me one of the core lessons I teach today: The 3 D’s. Decision, Determination and Disqualification.
Two of the most popular questions I get on my monthly #AskLoral webinars (I’m hosting my next #AskLoral on August 2) are: “How do I get started with no money?” and “What’s the fastest way to make money?”
“Perfection is poverty.” This is one of my favorite entrepreneur mantras…and one I see far too many entrepreneurs fall victim to.
One of the absolute biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make is starting to work before they are paid. Maybe this is you. Maybe you’ve started a project before being paid or even laying out your clear payment expectations.
For those of us that didn’t grow up in the lap of luxury, the fact is relatively few will ever experience it. Heck, I grew up on a farm & Nebraska and it took unlearning years of an ‘old-school’ mindset around money before I could achieve true wealth.
