“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” Benjamin Franklin 


I was reading an article by an investment guy named Tom Early and this is what he said A COMMON MISCONCEPTION in companies is that a business plan is for the bank or a potential investor. It is not.

A business plan is for the business, it clearly lays out the road map for where the business wants to go and how it intends to get there.

Here are just a couple of other facts that I felt were important 

  • No individual has sufficient experience, education, native ability, and knowledge to insure the accumulation of a great fortune, without the cooperation of other people.

  • Temporary defeat should mean only one thing, the certain knowledge that there is something wrong with your plan. Millions of men go through life in misery and poverty, because they lack a sound plan through which to accumulate a fortune.

  • Henry Ford accumulated a fortune, not because of his superior mind, but because he adopted and followed a PLAN which proved to be sound


I really like the point that my good friend Nick Harper made in his lesson about having an organized desk. I really have a strong belief that clutter causes a lack of focus and disorganization. 

I have that in my house as the three friends that went to Florida with me can attest to. It will most likely take me two or three months to clean all of this up and get rid of it and get my house sold but I have made a vow to never have more things than I need sitting around again. Clutter is my enemy!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for all you do for us and thank you to my very good friends and mastermind partners for letting me feed off of your brilliant minds!
