How do you Spend or Invest time?

Multiple Sources of Income

The 80/20 Rule

Most people, not all, but most, do busy work, not productive work. The focus on the 80 percent that is easy, not the 20 percent that is hard.

20 Tips to get a BETTER deal!

1. Everything is negotiable Keep an open mind about what is negotiable. You may believe retail prices in stores are the bottom line, but they are not!

Negotiate when your opponent is happy or content. They’ll be less likely to give you opposition and say no than when they are unhappy or feeling discontent. When you have the advantage, all of the pressure is on them. You should also [Read More Now...]

I recall spending all summer gaining weight (high school to college), and working out 1 to 2 times a day to get “make it”. I was fairly demoralized, when I show up at tryouts, only to [Read More Now...]
