I was on a training call with my Mentor and he starting breaking down the different between being a hustler or a business. He told me to pick up the webster dictionary and look up the meaning of both words. When I started reading the meaning of both words I got a great overstanding. I was raise by hustlers who taught me how to get money. Most hustler become good in sales because they need money and its all about moving the product fast. A hustlers can sell anything because he/she knows the art of selling. The hustlers just want make a sale fast and move on to the next. Most hustlers can become a great business person if they found a great mentor who will help the grow.
Everyone needs a mentor who can help them grow in areas where they lack information. This is the information age where you can found anything you want to know Google it!. When I came to Atlanta in 1998 I had a hustling swag and I build a million dollar business from a hustling mindset. My hustling attitude cost me a lot of money and pain. Look up the word hustler in the urban dictionary and find out the meaning for yourself. Today I am mentoring men with a hustling mindset.
A true mentor will break you down and build you up. Then he/she will point you in the direction of personal development. I just love being mentor or mentoring someone who looking to change they life. Working on yourself is not easy, its very painful to change old bad habits. A mentor will suggest that you start investing in yourself because it is the best investment. How many books are you reading? What did you learn new today and what are you doing with the new information? What do you want in life and how are you going to get it?
Everything you have learned in life came from somebody else, now its time for you to see if the information is true or false. Some people will give you false information and you will run with it until you crash. Learn how to think for your self. All success people invest in themselves first.
Personal Development is the key to your success!
You must become good before you can become great!
Who’s Pouring into your spirit?
I was on a business call with my mentor and the rest of my business partners which we have every Sunday @ 7:55pm, I hope you can make it one day. As Mr Collier started talking to us I felt a spirited come over me to tell me write everything down, his spirited was on FIRE!
How do you measure success, what do success look like?
Most people feel success is having expensive cars, clothes and the best of jewelry, a big house with a pool and a white poodle for the wife. When you see these people at the red light or at a event where all the cars are line up to show you how successful they are, or you see young people wearing all the brand names clothes and watches and flashing money on the web. Is that really success, or where did they learn it from, THINK! Continue reading
Many businesses start off as small home-based small businesses. According to the Global Entrepreneur Monitor Report, 69% of all start-ups in the United States are home-based businesses and 59% of established businesses more than three and a half years old continue to operate as home-based businesses. However, what is often overlooked by these small operations (and those looking to start such a business) is proper tax planning.
According to Meisa Bonelli, Managing Partner ofMillennial Tax, a provider of tax services for small/home-based businesses, start-ups and solopreneurs, these same individuals are serial late filers and miss out on maximizing tax benefits that are unique to their type of business structure. To prevent this from happening, she recommends the following seven pieces of advice:
Choose the Right Entity for Your Business. Oftentimes when entrepreneurs look to incorporate, they think of choosing an L.L.C. or S-corporation, rather than consider what structure would be most beneficial from a tax standpoint. “A lot of these entrepreneurs are just looking to be a lifestyle company – between $100,000 and $1 million in revenues. So they have to consider their federal, state and municipal tax implications and their business objectives” advises Bonelli. “Then choose an entity from that standpoint.” Continue reading
You have a secret wisdom that was placed in you before you was born. A potential a wisdom to know who you are and what you were created to be and do in life. That potential is a hidden overstanding that follows neither the wisdom of our society nor the insights of our leaders. Unlike the wisdom of this world, which is worthless, this secret wisdom is the key to overstand your true potential.
Many people die without unveiling their wealth of wisdom. They die in total foolishness, without experiencing the life that dwells within. What a pity! They have missed discovering their secret wisdom. Secret here does not mean to be withheld from. It rather has a meaning of to have known existed. There is a difference. This secret wisdom is something we never knew existed within us. I was told by a great master teacher!
You were born rich with wisdom! Continue reading
