  • Sales is the driver of the business. As a start up entrepreneur it’s important to determine your analytics and key performance indicators for your sales process.

If you spend 90 to 120 days completely focused on sales you will understand your sales cycle and what kind of revenues and profits you can generate.

Why is this important?

Because you will need this data when you hire your first sales person. And hiring your first sales person should be a major goal in your business. This will allow you to start expanding your business.

Focus the early stages of your business on product development and sales. And get a full-time sales person as soon as possible.

Most people think they don’t have the money for a sales person but they don’t realize a great sales person always pays for themselves. At least that’s the goal. A sales person doesn’t cost you any money, they are a profit center. This is a mindset issue for most start up entrepreneurs. But once they learn the process, it helps their business thrive.

Do you have sales people? Are you having a problem learning how to understand your analytics?

Send me a direct message and I can introduce you to my sales coach who can help you.

  • 2005 is when I got my first mentor in business. And look what happened the next year.

They say it takes 10 years to find success, well it took me a little longer than that.

I have this hanging on my wall to remind me of why I am so passionate about telling people to get a mentor and get coaches as soon as possible.

I could have saved myself 10 years, 10 long hard years struggling if I had somebody to show me the easier path.

This isn’t bullshit. This is actually my real Social Security statement.

And mine is a common tale. Many of us went through this type of struggle for years.

How did we get through it? What other choice was there? Give up? #fuckfailure 
If you don’t think my learning curve and ability to overcome all that can help you, you are absolutely out of your mind.

If you are an entrepreneur and you are struggling, send me a direct message right now I get in my mentor ship program. It will change your life.

  • The point of this post is that no matter how hard the times are that I am going through, my relationship with God kept me going.

If you’ve never seen “footprints in the sand“, slide and read it. I will never forget the first time I read it.

Thanks for accepting me, my beliefs, and everything that makes me am who I am.

I hope today is a great Day for you and you know that you are loved.

  • The Law of Attraction. Does it work?

It did for me. 
A few years back, I said to myself, I want to do a Ted X talk. I went and bought these two books and started reading. Then, something told me that I needed to take a picture with these two books and post it on social media and tell people I wanted to do a Ted X talk.

I learned this from setting goals. One important thing about setting goals is to tell people about the goals so it hold you accountable.

Immediately after I posted this picture on Facebook, one of my friends reached out and said she worked on a committee in Carson City for Ted X. And she asked me if I would like to do a talk there.

I said, “duh”. Absolutely. Of course.

A few months later I was on the stage doing my Ted X talk.

Now I have never studied the law of attraction, and I won’t pretend to know how to teach about it or intelligently talk about it. But sure felt pretty much like the law of attraction to me.

Have you ever experienced the law of attraction? Share one of your stories. Leave a comment.

  • I don’t know what stage you’re going through, but I remember when I was having a hard time in life and I prayed for God just to help me learn how to develop the right mindset to change my life so I had food to eat and a place to live. 
I never had goals to be super wealthy and rich or live in a mansion or drive nice cars.

I simply wanted stability and I wanted to be my own business man. I never had huge goals of billions of dollars. 
Whatever your goals, fight for them. But my advice is to pray for for God to help you learn how to develop the right mindset to achieve your goals. Create the right mindset, and you’ll achieve everything you ever imagined. #mostwontiwill #nashville
