We apologize for the blog not being as helpful and active as we hoped when we launched it. One of us had a lot of computer problems and couldn’t do her part in writing these! Hint HER Part! We promise to be more consistent in the new year.
Is this a brand New Year and a brand NEW YOU??? Are you full of excitement and dreams? Or does it just feel like same ole same ole? Let this year be the year that you fill up your life with joy, inspiration and success! You need only to believe in yourself and your abilities.
DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
BE WHO YOU WANT TO BE
BE ALL YOU CAN BE
FILL EVERY DAY WITH JOY AND HAPPINESS
You just need to let the powerful energy of positivity roar into your life and up your efforts and game plan. There is no reason you can’t turn an ordinary life into and extraordinary LIFE!
I was out working on the leaves in the yard on the last day before our first snowstorm here in Ohio. Only good thing about that is it gave me a lot of time to think! I was remembering that twice right before the holidays my dad was laid off from his job and three times I have also been given the boot and laid off right before or right after the holidays! Very sobering thought!
So the important question to everyone is what your PLAN B? In this world today change is happening so rapidly that it has become a necessity to have a plan B and even a plan C!
Luckily right now I have an amazing Plan B! A proven, done-for-you system that guides you through the steps required to generate multiple streams of income. And the really cool thing about it is that it allows you to integrate your own products and services, or create such assets if you have never done so before.
I hope none of you need a Plan B or Plan C but…. if you have any interest in creating one or KNOW anyone needing one get in touch with me or visit this link NOW!
In my 20+ years of business consulting I have helped hundreds of companies become bankable and / or acquire needed capital to grow their businesses. In that amount of time I’ve notice some interesting trends. Prior to the last recession, for example, money was relatively available but still not easy to get. During that period I captured the funds requested at first presentation 50% of the time and at second presentation an additional 20%. Then when the recession did hit money became so tight that even the largest corporations with the best credit ratings could not secure lines of credit or expansion funding. For example did you know that during the recession, McDonald’s Corporation was unable to secure a “bridge” loan for $1,000,000.00 for 72 hours? Can you even really imagine that?
Enter National Business Capital, a bank based out of New York which I am very proud to be affiliated with. This bank was formed by successful millionaires who could not, themselves, get loans during that last nasty recession. Now here’s the rub: Money has been freely available for some time now resulting in a false sense of security for many business owners. Many owners that I consult with who used to be dedicated self-funders have finally come to learn that often it is less expensive to build your business with someone else’s money! In addition the trends are about to reverse and you will soon see money become very tight again, worse than it was during the last recession!
That means NOW is the perfect time to secure the funds necessary to secure your company’s future! Get credit and use it! That’s what I did and I could not be happier. I now have a relationship with a visionary bank and you can too. Check it out before the tides change and you may see your company “locked-out” of any new chance for funding for quite some time to come!

As an entrepreneur both progress and roadblocks are occurring all the time. For instance, last night I went out to eat with two friends. They got talking about the crazy busy-ness of the upcoming Holidays and increases in their work loads. Here in Northeast Ohio we have been blessed with our third beautiful warm fall in a row so many of us have gotten behind in preparation for winter and the Holidays.
I always had a certain list of fall activities that I needed to complete to take some pressure off of the transition into and survival of a typical Ohio winter.
Here is my list – feel free to add or personalize for your life as needed.
Clean up yard
Sweep out garage and set mouse traps.
Spray for pests interior and exterior perimeter of house.
Make sure all bushes, leaves, etc. are not close to or clogging outside heating unit.
Take car in for service, oil change, filters, fluids and make sure wipers are in good shape as well as tires and tires inflated properly, put snow brush and extra blankets in car.
Clean flue of fireplace and stock up seasoned wood and kindling. (If Applicable)
Have furnace serviced including cleaning and new filter installed.
Re-caulk windows and doors outside, replace screens with storms.
Clean gutters and roof.
Turn off and drain exterior faucets.
Winterize lawn mower, find snow shovels and prep snow blower.
Purchase salt or ice.
Make a list of supplies needed in case of power outage and purchase as needed. For example, extra batteries and flashlights.
Stock up on certain necessities such as canned goods and toilet paper, paper towels, candles, and snacking and drinking items. (Extreme weather may keep you home-bound)
Make a list of items needed for winter health and purchase. Items such as aspirin, sinus meds, anti-acids, ace bandages, toothpaste, soap and shampoo.
Spend a day preparing some meals in advance and package for freezing to be used on extra busy or strenuous days.
As soon as cold weather hits I make a habit of maintaining at least one half tank of gas in my car at all times.
I have found that the more things I can plan ahead and do, minimizing the pressure and worry, the less I dread winter and the cold darkness it brings.
The Holidays and winter are such a stressful time for many people that we can use a gentle reminder that cabin fever, seasonal affective disorder and depression spike in the cold weather along with sadness and loneliness at the Holidays.
Consider occasionally contacting your friends and family during this time; perhaps even offer to assist them with a task on their winter list.
Although this post may seem somewhat off topic from a personal and professional development blog its really not because my partners recent failure to complete the list resulted in significant delay in the launch of this blog!
Thus one can easily see how important planning ahead and crisis avoidance is in in order to enjoy a peaceful and productive live both at work and at home.
