My New Driver... Help Me!!!

Oh my. Riding in the passenger seat while my 16 year old drives home from soccer practice on the FREEWAY!! Oh my oh my..Please send me Tums.

Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen Launched Their New BOOK Today (and my name is in it!!)

The book is called Cash in a Flash. I went to their 3 day intensified course (with the same title) focused on changing your mindset and redefining your personal and financial goals- NOW (no time for years of therapy!). Let me tell you- this was no fluffy, touchy feely, kum-by-ya seminar (well, maybe a little bit- but that was probably the most important part!). But EVERYONE left there (about 40 of us) fully charged and buzzing with life and financial goals to be achieved in 90 days. As a gift from Mark and Bob, we received 100 copies of the new book and I will have a few left after I gift them to my inner circle. Just email me at and we'll figure out how to get you one of my free copies. In case you're wondering what my 90 day Cash in a Flash goal was- you will just have to wait until it's published- soon!!! :) Read their book, watch the free videos at, and I promise you will be moved to ACTION!!!

68 & 70 and Still Running 26.2!

Congrats to my parents Ron and Joyce who finished their last training run today before the Portland Marathon next month. Mom walks (she's only 68) and Dad runs- both are amazing! They started running and walking when they turned 50, so no knee or hip issues that plague runners who ran in their early years. Did I also mention that he runs an 8 minute mile? Rock star!!! I've completed 3 half marathons at a turtle's pace when I was 40, 41, and 42. I fell off the wagon last year and don't think I'll be half marathon ready this year either, but as John "the Penguin" Bingham says, "If you run, you're a runner." So I guess I'm still a runner and aways will be... at least until I'm 70. Thanks for the inspiration Mom and Dad :)

Love this from my wise friend @MarkVHansen: "When you know clearly what you want, you'll wake up every morning excited about life." So true.

More Wisdom from One of My Favorite Gurus

Four Key Questions from Verne Harnish at Gazelles (register for one of the BEST business growth newsletters at

1. Are you getting an extra 40% discretionary effort from your People -- a critical competitive edge?

2. Can you state your Strategy in a sentence -- and is it a viable strategy driving revenue that utilizes your inside advantage?

3. Are you spending too much time and getting too little results from your Execution habits i.e. are your profits three times industry average with little effort?

4. Is your business generating boat loads of Cash to fuel your growth and fund opportunities? And will your competitors figure this out before you? Now is not the time to mess around -- it's the strongest companies that will always prevail as we've witnessed over the past 24 months since the global economy began to stumble.

How to Become a $ix-Figure Business Broker
Downloadable Audio MP3 Workshop and Companion Transcript
(By the way… we are NOT recruiting! I simply want to share information that has enabled me to go from a $60,000 hotel sales director to a Second Career $ix-Figure Business Broker making over the industry average of $250,000 year-after-year!)

Looking for a Lucrative Second Career that Rewards Maturity and Experience? Consider a great second career helping small business owners and business buyers meet, negotiate and close deals as a professional Second Career $ix-Figure Business Broker!

Business brokerage is an exciting, rewarding, flexible and prestigious profession! It provides the opportunity to help entrepreneurs (sellers) receive a cash benefit for the business that they have worked very hard to build, as well as allowing you to help entrepreneurs (buyers) achieve the dream of owning their own business. While a college degree is helpful, there is no specific background or educational achievement that ensures success in business brokerage. In general, people who have sales experience, management experience, have owned their own business, or come from families who have owned their own businesses make good business brokers. If I had to narrow it down, a strong desire to succeed financially, a willingness to learn, and enjoyment of working with people in a business environment are the primary traits that will probably take you all the way to the top! Also, a career in business brokerage will give you the freedom and flexibility to direct your own work schedule by either starting your own business brokerage practice or by joining an established firm.
