Movie Review-Fences

fences

This movie was very good.  Here are the 6 lessons I learned:

  1. A lot of people think they can’t do better.  With the history of poverty in this country there is a huge problem with the poverty mindset. It is very difficult to change a person’s belief about themselves without their help.
  2. Times have changed.  Although the world is not perfect, it is much better than it was in the past.
  3. Death a fast ball on the outside corner.  No one knows when their end will be but some people know it is close for them.  That is way it is so important to treat each day as your last.
  4. You need people to do right by you.  If you find that people are miss treating you, understand that everyone will not do right by you.  It is just a fact of life.
  5. Fences can keep people out and it can also keep people inside.  People choose to stay inside of the fences and we pray that the fences will keep out those who want to harm us.
  6. You have to take the crooked with the straight.  I wish every ball that comes our way would be a straight ball but life has a series of crooked things wrong in it. You must be ready for any ball that comes your way.

Monday Book Review-Raving Fans

raving-fan

This book teaches you how to develop a group of people who would never think of going anywhere else but where you provide goods and services.  They are called Raving Fans! 

Here are the 6 lessons I received from reading this book:

  1. In life everyone has a choice of who they patronize.  Most people take for granted the relationship that people give to their money and how they spend it.  I think times are changing and people are more aware of where their money goes.  Personally I am trying very hard to shop at stores that stand for something and have good outreach programs to the community. I want to find doctors and service providers that know me and I am not just a number to them.  It does not matter if you spend 100 dollars or 100 million dollars per year, your money has value and you give to those who you believe should have it.
  2. Find out what you want.  When you go into business, decide what do you expect from staff, customers and even yourself.  Many times people don’t spend the time thinking about the feel of their business. I suggest you know what a person will experience when they use your services because your reputation will go ahead of you.
  3. Be human and admit if you make mistakes.  Sometimes you might not always get things right, take some time to find out how things when wrong and what you can do to make things better.
  4. Find out what the customers want.  It is so good to ask people from time to time, how you are doing in their opinion.  How can I make things better??  What makes you come to my store??  
  5. Be ready to deal with the answers.  Many times people will not give you the whole truth.  Tell people that you want to know their good and bad experiences.
  6. Deliver plus one.  When people tell you want that want give them that plus one.  Go above and beyond their desired results.  Always WOW people with your little extras.

Desire!!!

desire

Desire–Do You Have It??  Do you desire a better life??  Do you desire a healthy body?? Do you desire a loving relationship?? Do you desire a bigger income?? Do you desire fame??  Do you desire a successful business??

All of these things are amazing to desire but usually after month and maybe years of our desires not showing up, we lose the desires we suddenly don’t want anything. Our fire goes out and we become unmotivated.

I want you go back to a time when you had a great desire for something.  How did you feel?? Could you sleep at night?? Did you have that constant movie playing in your head telling you that success is right there in your reach??

I believe that everyone has experienced a strong desire at some point in their lives.  We must decide to keeping the desire burning to achieve our desired result. You seek DESIRE is the first step in achieving a goal.  Do you really want the goal??  Many times people fall out of love because they let the desire burn out.  

If you want to keep the DESIRE in your life follow these 3 steps:

  1. Know what you want
  2. Make it a BURNING Desire
  3. Don’t quit until you get it

If you follow these 3 simple steps you can relight your: DESIRE!!

Monday Book Review-Strugglepreneur

struggle

This book has been a great read for anyone starting or managing a business.  Here are the 6 tips that I learned from the book:

  1. Struggle is optional.  Everyone in business do not find themselves struggling. Business is many times thrown together and items are overlooked.  You can have a thriving business if you do your due diligence.   Sometimes business can be the very best thing that has happen to your life.
  2. Know why you are struggling.  If you find yourself struggling in business, there is a reason.  It’s your duty to find out what is wrong so that you can fix it.  Some struggles are rooted in bad information given at the start of the business.  Take time to go back and fix those things that hinder you.
  3. You must plan for great results. If you keep your hand on what is going on monthly, weekly and daily, you can catch things before they become out of hand. If you plan for what you are going to do in the future some mistakes can be avoided.
  4. One of the quick fixes: Get a business address. Don’t use your home address for your business.  There are a variety of ways to get a business address.  Fix out what is the best option for you.
  5. Another quick fix: Get a virtual assisted phone number.  Technology has advance so much that now it is so easy to get a number to make sure your company is professional at all times.
  6. Final quick fix: Register your business with google maps.  This is another tip that helps legitimize your business.  Simple things that you can do to help your business.

Friday Movie Review-Office Christmas Party

office-christmas-party-poster_december-7-692x1024

This movie was funny in a unique type of way.  These are the 6 tips I got from the movie:

  1. A Good Party is all you need.  People are craving social time now a days.  It seems like the world is tuned into social media and they spend less time together.  So when someone says party,  you can get a ton of people to attend.  I think that satisfies something missing in their lives.
  2. Some people show you a different side of them at a party.  Letting your hair down is what most people do when they drink or party.  People should really be careful how they act at all times during their employment.
  3. Sometimes a little tension is what you need to be creative.  When you are under stress sometimes you work better than you would when things are normal.  I know I do some much work when I have a deadline.  Millions of people thrive this way.  
  4. Competition is good for your work place.  When things get low or contracts seem few, suddenly staff can get really creative on how to change things.  Management has to be extremely careful not to share difficulties in the company because the staff will do a mass exit and work will not be complete.  Good management looks out for the staff to make sure if layoffs are coming they will be taken care of.  Sometimes change is inevitable.
  5. You can make a difference with the simplest things. In this movie, they learned so much about each other and that information to help each other.  Take time to find out about your co-workers.  Find out their hobbies and dreams, it might end up helping you are them some day.
  6. Business can be won with genuine concern.  Many times doing research on someone can make the difference in you getting the business instead of another company.  I have learned in prospective customers making a decision you must do the “extras”.  If you decide that you are to commit to doing things above and above your competition, learn what can make you stick out.  It’s obvious this office party was a good ideal for this company.

FRESH START!

fresh-start

It’s January 2017, are you ready for your FRESH START???  One of the greatest lessons that I learned in 2016 is nothing stays the same and everything will change.  Even if we hope and pray and ask God to help us, sometimes the answer is no and we must learn the lessons that is being given to us.

If you spend too much time thinking about the past and how good things were, you will find yourself in a depression mode. I can guarantee you if you JUST GET UP and GET GOING, things will change for you.  If you just have some faith that things will get better, your life can turn around and you can live the life of your dreams.

A fresh start, a new breath of air and a renewed mind is all you need to make 2017 the year of your dreams.  Will you commit to be great?  Will you do things differently??? Join me in having a FRESH START.

Monday Book Review-Stuck in Neutral

stuckinneutral.jpg

This book was excellent.  Here are my 6 lessons that I took away from the book.

  1. Without God you will spend your entire life stuck!.  The principles shared in the book really give you insight on what happens when you go it alone without God’s will being followed in your life.
  2. With confidence anything is possible.  Many times in life we allow the down times to take away our confidence.  When we build our confidence everything in our life gets better.  Spend some time learning how to grow your confidence in life.
  3. Be thankful!!  One of the greatest prayers of our life is thank-you.  Cortney does a great job explaining that humility breed attitude and gratitude breeds humility. So many people go thru life with an entitled mindset.  I think people don’t really understand what they have.  I believe if everyone had to visit or live in a 3rd world country, they would return so thankful for everything they have obtained.
  4. No Sacrifice-No Success! Wow this point was tough to really think about because in this microwave society that we live in, it seems like success is given to people overnight.  I know everyone pays a price but social media can make it look like opportunities fall into the right hands everyday.  We have to be so careful that we don’t compare ourselves to anyone who looks like they got it all. You have no ideal what they have went thru to have it all.
  5. Make Adjustment-Not Excuses–Clever!!! I which everyone in the world would put this in their vocabulary and their mindset.  If we just did some adjustments to the plan and watched how things change.  We could conquer so many issues.
  6. Appreciate your haters.  This ideal is so true because in life the haters keep you on your toes.  You find yourself always attempting to get better everyday because someone might have said something that was negative about you.  Haters are truly motivation to do better work every day. 

Cortney Westbrook is a great entrepreneur that I had the privilege to meet in November 2016 at the http://www.ilovebusinessconference.com.  He is new to Dallas and has great plans to network and grow his business in the area.  his Up Together Empowerment Conference is coming up on July 13 & 14, 2017 and I encourage you to join me there.  Check out more information at: http://www.uptogetherconference.com
