What Are YOU Selling?

Everything … and I mean everything … is selling. The food you ate for dinner last night came to your table because someone sold something. The fuel you put in your car has to be sold to the gas station and then again to the consumer. The diapers you put on your baby had to be sold to someone or your baby would be diaperless. The list goes on to infinity. Literally.

If someone had told me years ago that I’d be selling anything, I would have laughed uncontrollably. Why? Because a “salesperson” conjures up a vision of the old snake oil salesman. Sadly, some people still think that way. As Zig Ziglar would say, that’s ‘stinkin’ thinkin.’ Zig devoted himself to raising the image of salespeople everywhere. I admire his work and tireless devotion.

Our buddy, Zig, also said “Money isn’t everything, but it is reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” Until we somehow magically no longer have a 02.28.18valuableneed to pay for things, money is still it.

So what did I sell when I began my career in the staffing industry? Peace of mind. The peace of mind that comes with hiring the right employees for the job. It’s what I did for many, many companies. The ripple effect was amazing! The company was delighted and so was the new employee. I made sure of it. Was it challenging at times? Yes. Was it rewarding? Yes, because the rewards outstripped the challenges by a mile.

I’m no longer in the staffing business, but I’m still in the “peace of mind” business. And I absolutely love it. How cool is it to be able to show someone how to bring their standard of living up, providing them with more disposable income and more freedom? In my humble opinion, it just doesn’t get any better than this. I love being able to show people how to lower their financial stress.

Am I selling you something right now? No. Not unless you’re in the market for peace of mind. Fill out the contact form here if that’s what you want.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Planning for Success

Personal fulfillment is an important part of planning for career and financial success. I discovered this when doing workshops in the Bay Area for people wanting to change jobs. You also have to think about survival in a world that can sometimes be financially harsh and difficult and how you want to live – in luxury or barely getting by?02-10-17plan-action

When you’re living the life you were created for in your career path, you’re achieving personal fulfillment in a way that should make you happy. But if that life doesn’t provide you with means to survive with enough left over to live your dreams, then that career choice might be flawed and can produce regrets.

Many people become complacent in just getting by and pursuing more can seem like a mountain – impossible to climb. Others become obsessed with achieving a career that will bring happiness – and create a life they’ve always dreamed of. Most people these days are looking for a way to have a side project that can provide the extra income they want and need. They build a side business so that, in the event of their day job going south, they have something to fall back on.

Providing an education for your children, traveling as much as you want, living in a nice home with all the features you enjoy – or simply having the leisure time to work in your garden is something we all want, that provides us with joy and the freedom to choose how we live our lives.

Success isn’t the same for everyone. Your perception of success and how you go about achieving it might be totally opposite from a friend or family member. That’s because you each have different potential to work toward your goals and be happy with those accomplishments.

The potential you carry within has to be set free to pursue the goals you have for the future – and that can be difficult if you live in fear, doubt or negative self-talk that keeps you down.

You can do anything you want to do bad enough with that inner potential of yours. You may need to shift your mindset from holding back to jumping in and taking the steps necessary to achieve financial success and overall fulfillment.

How do you do it? Begin to program yourself to believe that anything you want to accomplish is possible. That may mean that you have to change your personal story from failures to any accomplishments you’ve had along the way. Write down your personal successes and use them as a daily reminder that you have come a long way already.

The best way to begin your pursuit of success is to take action. If you truly want success in a career that brings financial stability, you will take the steps necessary to achieve it. And don’t forget to pursue happiness along the way!

P.S. I don’t sell “stuff” that people don’t need. I lock arms with people who want to set up their own Plan B and show them exactly how to do it).
