Good Wednesday to you, Sometimes it's hard to stay the course. I believe if you keep doing what others don't do, that you'll see positive results.

Good Tuesday to you, After a 3 day weekend and a shortened work week in front of me, it's time to hunker down and make something hapen this week.

There are many who do not like to do this, no matter what business they are in, however, it is a vital and necessary step. Here is the inspiration for the day. Have a great Tuesday

Good Wednesday to you, Many times when you concentrate and focus on a course of action, it takes awhile for any results to be seen.

Good Wednesday to you, It's amazing what I actually accomplished by focusing on what Stephen Covey says is First Things First. For me, it was focusing on business and working on getting deals done. I was able to accomplish quite a few things since I've put my mind to it. It is very easy to get distracted with everything that is happening. Focusing like a laser beam is helping me to move forward. That's what the inspiration is going to be this entire week. Focus. Here is the inspiration for the day. Have a great Wednesday.

Good Friday to you, I've been working hard to increase business and have succeeded in making a few very large deals. As it turns out during our due-diligence period, their have been "typos" on the amount of money that was in the county coffers. These "typos", when found out, caused the deal to be non-existant. Guess I'll have to keep trying and moving forward. If I work the numbers, I'll get a definitive soon. Here is the inspiration for the day. Have a great Friday.

I found out yesterday how important due diligence can be and how, no matter how much pressure is put on you, you have to stick to your guns on how you operate your business. The one time that I succumbed to some pressure and didn't follow my normal routine for business, cost me $19,000. Ouch! Expensive lesson learned.

Good Saturday to you, I'm here in Indiana and had to go to court. While here, I have some friends who live near Indianapolis that I haven't seen in awhile, so I took a little extra time to spend with them and their family. Take time out and do a few things that make you feel good.

Yesterday I had to go to court and defend myself and my company for our business and show that what we do and the way we do it is correct and just. The person that we had conducted business with accused us of fraud, when in fact they were involved in fraudulent activities and tried to do things that they shouldn't have done. The judge saw things our way and liked the way we ran our business and was very pleased that I came 1/2 way across the country to defend ourselves (2 comments)

Over the last week I've been working on putting together a team of people so that I can grow my company. The potential is unlimited for my industry, however, I have been limited because I haven't been willing to let go of the reigns and let others help me. I have realized that I cannot do it on my own and need to have a team of others who share my vision.
