Financial FitnessA couple of years ago I went through a finance pack from LIFE that cost me almost $50, but has saved me between $70-$100 every month since. That pack consisted of a small book and 4 audio CDs which proved to be invaluable.

Well, LIFE has outdone itself this time, with a new product; the Financial Fitness pack. It doesn’t leave anything out when it comes to finances. I’ve never really looked into any finance materials before, other than my accounting class in school or from reading Robert Kiyosaki’s ‘Cashflow Quadrant’. From what I understand though, financial education usually only covers one side of finance.

What I love about this new pack is that doesn’t just cover how to spend less or just how to get out of debt. It doesn’t only cover how to save properly. It doesn’t just cover how to make more money. It covers ALL of that in the offense of defense sections of finance. But there is more! It also covers the ‘playing field’ which goes into how money works, giving you the information you need to prosper in any economy.

It goes through 47 principles of finance that make total sense when you read them, but that can really set you back when you don’t even know about them. (more…)

The Slight Edge by Jeff OlsonSuccess in anything is easy. It’s doing small and simple things continuously over time. The problem: these simple things are easy not to do.

I just finished reading ‘The Slight Edge’ by Jeff Olson, which I now consider to be one of my top 10 favorite books. The main point of the book: Success is easy; but so is failure. What is great is that we have the freedom to choose which path to take.

As we’ve gone through many times before, true success requires personal and professional development. Be careful here though; reading one book like ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ or attending a leadership seminar is not enough. If it were, you would see many more successful people in the world due to how many leadership books get sold and how many people are attending leadership seminars.

Success requires reading good books on success, and listening to good information. It also requires the slight edge principle that Jeff Olson tells us about.

The slight edge is about doing simple things consistently over time. (more…)

I finally did it! I put my top 100 list in order!

I also removed a couple things, and replaced it with things that mattered more to me. The main change I made was due to watching the film ‘Pay it Forward’¬†again a few months ago. It got me thinking how awesome it would be to do stuff like that for random people.

I’m going to give them something they really need, or do something for them that will get them through a bad situation. The stipulation I put on myself for this, is that the value will have to be around $10000 or more.

Imagine what it would be like to find someone who needs a very important surgery but can’t afford it. Maybe I can help someone who was in a car accident and who got screwed over by the insurance company’s small print. Maybe it will be someone who got stuck in another country, and has no way to get back to their family.

I don’t know what it will end up being, but I’m going to apply the slight edge principle to my life, using the LIFE Business, to be ready when the time comes. My post on what the slight edge is all about is forthcoming in the next few days. Stay tuned… It’s AWESOME!

And yes… I will ask them to pay it forward when they have the opportunity ūüôā

Orrin Woodward recently posted this article on his site. He did a little introduction to an Amazing article by Oliver DeMille about the need for a new party. Although this article is about the United States, I believe this also applies to Canada. Even if we do have more than one party, none are what we truly need; we need a party of small business!

I’m super excited about the book LeaderShift,¬†co-wrote¬†by Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille. After reading Oliver’s FreedomShift and 1913, along with Orrin’s Resolved and Launching a Leadership Revolution – There is no doubt this book is going to be a top seller, and a book that will help change the course of our countries; in a positive direction!

Get the book. Mine is pre-ordered!

Enjoy,

Orrin’s article:

LeaderShift by Orrin Woodward & Oliver DeMille
LeaderShift¬†isn‚Äôt a political party, but it is a freedom movement of productive members in society (of both left and right persuasions), who are concerned about the decline in dialogue, decision-making, and direction of our country‚Äôs political leaders.¬†Oliver DeMille¬†and I wrote¬†LeaderShift¬†to provide new thinking to an old problem, using the¬†Five Laws of Decline¬†to describe the process. Governments, by their very nature, tend to centralize and control. Indeed, local leadership and freedoms are inversely proportional to centralized powers and control. (more…)

life-wheelHaving been involved with the ‘networking’ industry for a couple years now, I completely understand why it has been so hard to find others who wanted to get ahead in their life using this model. ¬†When I approached others at first, I never understood why they were so scared of what I was showing them. ‘Networking’ is like a swear word in some circles.

Then I started to hear about other companies out there, that brought to mind images of pyramids and scams. for some of them, even I thought they might very well be scams when you consider the cost to get involved and the high price of the products. Then there is the way some of them are structured, where the person at the top makes all the money, making it an illegal pyramid. And there are those where you make money for signing people up and not actually doing anything productive. I must say I’m glad I wasn’t introduced to one of these first, or I may have been doomed to mediocrity, not looking past the companies that give this industry a bad name.

I just didn’t see their point of view at first due to¬†Life Leadership being so different. They were still seeing the Ford Pinto which might explode, when I was trying to show them a new Lamborghini. It’s like they thought all cars were bad because that old model was bad, when in fact there are some pretty nice ones out there too.

I’ve been wanting to do a post on this for a while to address these thoughts, but then Chris Brady did one that is certainly much better written than I could have done (He does have the advantage of being a best selling author)

He talks about what LIFE has done to address all the negatives, and what they did to fix the industry. I see LIFE doing to networking, what¬†McDonald’s¬†did to¬†franchising. When franchising was almost voted to be illegal due to the way the industry worked, McDonalds changed it to being one of the most successful industries in the world.

What LIFE did is take everything that was seen as being wrong with networking and threw it out the window, keeping all that was right. Consider that unlike any other company out there, LIFE doesn’t keep any profits; there is no owners cut. Because of that, prices don’t have to be inflated to pay both the owners and the members. In fact the prices are reduced to keep it affordable to the masses, instead of catering to the classes. ALL the profits goes to the members!

Here is what Chris had to say: (more…)

As a follow up to the Entrepreneur Manifesto – I believe this one goes hand in hand!
