You know what my clients ask for my help with most often?

They want to know how to get their business to grow, but have seen so many things fail, that they’ve lost hope.

Think about this for a moment. We’re all facing this challenge at some level right now. We want a bigger, more successful business, yet so much of what we try seems to fall flat instead of producing results.

If you are experiencing this in your business, I promise you, you’re not alone.

OK, so that does pretty much nothing to help you. Just knowing you’re in good company with most every business going through the same things can be settling, but not really helpful.

What can help you is to understand one key word: momentum.

This one little word has been responsible business turn-arounds, even with clients who were just about to give up!

If you want to be one of those businesses, you’ve got to embrace the idea that success does not happen in a flash, it does not come to those who are nice, and it does not come by accident.

Success in your business, comes from building momentum, and then doing everything in your power to keep that momentum rolling in your favor.

This is how you can do just that: http://www.ultimatewealth.com/momentum

Failing to build, and then maintain your momentum will almost guarantee that your business will always be floundering instead of thriving. I’ve been on both sides of this and I will tell you, having momentum makes all the difference in the world!

You can do it too, and you should!

What it Means to be Free

Perhaps one of the hardest concepts for us to grasp is that of freedom. While it seems like a good idea, for the average person, freedom is NOT what they seek in life. Let me explain.

To be free, you would have to be the type of person who can and will take control of your life. You would have to be responsible for how your life turns out, no matter what the outcome.

In return, you would indeed gain the freedom to do as you please, as often as you please.

The problem for most people is that they only want HALF of what freedom brings. They want to be able to do as they choose whenever they choose, but at the same time are typically unwilling to embrace the responsibility that comes with true freedom.

While many talk a good game, very few will ever get to the point where they can do as they please.

In order to get, you have to give. There is no getting without giving.

In the case of our current societal challenges, there is no such thing as free healthcare without giving up something in return. To get the healthcare, you have to be willing to give up your freedom of choice, you have to be willing to give up more of your income, and you have to be willing to give up your power to choose how you wish to deal with your personal health.

This is a unversal law, which has been in play since the beginning of time. If you want something, you have to give something to get it.

If you want to be wealthy, you have to give up your time and creativity in order to create wealth. You see how poorly it turns our for those who gain great wealth in an instant with a winning lottery ticket. Trust me, you would not want that to happen to you.

If you prefer that somebody else be responsible for your well- being, you’ll give up your freedom. You and I speak about this often in terms of making the choice to be an employee or a business owner.

As an employee you gain the security of a weekly payday, but give up your freedom. On the other hand, as a business owner, you have much more freedom and in exchange you often give up security.

In the end, the choice of which way you choose to live your life should be up to you and only you. Nobody should ever dictate to you which path you should follow because nobody knows what’s best for you better than you.

In a time when our freedoms are once again threatened by people who think they know what’s best for you, and will stop at nothing to force you to get in line and follow their dictates, it’s more important now than ever that you stand your ground.

Whether it’s a close friend or a distant government official, remember that you and only you are in charge of your life.

We live in a great country, one that has for generations left the decisions on how we lead our lives up to the individual.

Today, it’s time to celebrate your freedom as you continue along your path in life seeking even more freedom.

Have a Happy 4th of July!

How have things changed and what should you be looking for now…

In my last message to you, I mentioned that things have changed, but I did not go into much detail on how they have changed.

One reader, Patrick O., pointed this out and asked if I might share my thoughts on how things are different now.

Knowing how things have shifted and changed is an important tool in trying to figure out what’s coming next, so let’s get into this by looking back just a few short years ago, say just before Obama became President.

Was the economy roaring? No, in fact it had already begun its decline. Around that time, companies began to lay off workers. The numbers were not surprising, at least at this time.

For small business owners, things were starting to slow down, people were being a little more cautious about how they were spending their money, and hiring was sluggish at best.

From 2008 to the present day, things have gotten much, much worse. I have a bird’s eye view of small business since working with small business owners is my primary role in life and can tell you that not one, in any industry, has managed to escape the challenges of this dismal economy.

As with all things, there is a silver lining to all the bad news out there. With hardly any new jobs being created over the past couple of years, and more people being cast aside, what you want to pay attention to is what these people are doing once their unemployment checks stop coming.

From what I see now, there is a HUGE part of our population, I would guess it numbers well over 20% now, of people who have been unemployed and have been unsuccessful at finding another job.

No, I don’t at all believe the “official” unemployment numbers as they have clearly been “fixed” to make it look as though things are not as bad as they are. A simple look around all all the people you know will give you a much better idea of just how bad the situation is.

You have to ask, “what will happen with all these people?” When the government checks stop coming, they have a few options. First, they can claim disability. If you’ve paid attention to the numbers, you’ll note that this is popular route for many who have burned through an astounding 99 weeks of unemployment checks.

The second option, and one you’re seeing more and more people choose, is to start their own business. It’s this segment of the population that you want to pay attention to.

These are the people who will help guide us out of this economic mess and who will create the next generation of Apple, Microsoft, and HP.

Each one of these now major companies started during the worst of times in the 1970’s. Today, they are the cornerstones of our economy.

I am looking for these people, I’m looking to help them, to support them, to train them, and to help get them up and running because they are the ones that will make the biggest difference in our world.

Change comes, not from government, but from individuals with a dream. People who dare to follow their passions and who lead others by setting the example of what’s possible.

Government, by contrast, is reactive in nature, uninformed, inefficient, and absolutely not creative in any manner. So they have zero ability to affect positive change in our world and in fact, tend most often to deter and interrupt success.

You, as an individual can be creative, you can follow your passions and make your dreams a reality. You can create a business that will support you and your family for decades to come.

This is where the energy, the creativity, the joy, or what I like to call the life force really is.

Put your attention on those things that mean something. Look for people who dare step up and who are ready to take charge of their own lives and create a future they can be proud of.

These people will be your customers. They will be the ones that will create jobs, who will stimulate the economy, and who may in fact, change the world.

Today, you might think about companies like Facebook, or Instagram. You can literally sit at home, write an “app” and walk off with a billion dollar buyout a year or two later.

Things have indeed changed, and not all of it is for the worst. Information is the new “hot product” and that includes all the tools needed to both search and store it so that it’s there when you need it.

Think about the Kindle, the iPad, the Nook, and all the other tools being sold at a breakneck pace, all designed to help you consume more information.

You have some choices to make for yourself. You can decide to “stick it out” and “see what happens” or you can step up to the plate and make a play that could very define not only the rest of your life, but of many others whose lives you will touch along the way.

There is much to do, much to be gained, and now is the best time to get out there and get to work!

Be outstanding!
