Thinking Forward

A few posts back I mentioned a mental diet.  Actually it was in a comment to a post. Here’s what I meant.  Your life is controlled by what you believe.  Want proof?  Imagine you are walking down the street.  You see a group of youths approaching you.  If you believe they might be friendly, you […]

The Power of One

Imagine with me for just a moment. You have found a business opportunity that’s interesting to you. This is a franchise business with the start up cost of under $1000. There is an ongoing overhead in the business of $200 per month. You know that ultimately you must move a product or a service to the consumer […]

What about Leverage?

We spoke earlier about being paid on the efforts of employees. That is one form of leverage, but it has some drawbacks. Aside from the difficulty in finding employees willing to work for what you are willing to pay them, there is administrative overhead. Many employees will not work as hard as you would because […]
