I pulled back for a second and I came to realize that I really didn't know much about the previous theme I was about to get rid of. I had not received the greatest benefit of what I spent my money on because I was looking for something that I thought was better. I became curious and (hear Pennies from Kevin Podcast)
... While it may be inappropriate it certainly would be easier if you could tell the people on your team to “treat me like a white boss.” Sounds harsh but there’s a reason there is a distance created between a boss and employees. Unfortunately, as entrepreneurs, we often try to be all things to all people, doctor, mother, father, minister, therapist, bank, friend etc which causes an inordinate amount of stress to us and our projects. Once again, putting other people’s needs in front of your own.
These are some of the things that I’ve learned over the years, sometimes twice and three times, that have really helped me to have a
The three most valuable assets in our lives are not what we think they are: Not love, it's not money it's not fame it's not the fortune but it's, time, value and energy. I would say purpose but you create purpose with time, value and energy just like you do everything else. Everything comes back to those three things. Time, Value and Energy. How much time do you have to devote to something that is not going to benefit you or your purpose? How much value is there in pursuing people, clients or situations that have a negative return? How much energy do you have to spare by being drained with futile efforts that you KNEW were not going to work before you invested … your time value and energy into them
Those rainy days will come ESPECIALLY for entrepreneurs and it's better to have backup money IN AN INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNT than to have to use credit cards and get loans and pay huge interest fees. There are many people who don't want to own property but I have owned several houses and then moved into an apartment.
On this EXTENDED version of Pennies from Kevin, we interview Dr. Mark Calarco from the American Addiction Treatment Center in Nashville, TN. He tells us about some of the ways addiction can creep into our lives and can even do so in disguise. We also talk about how people in the entertainment industry are affected.
Many times we are told to forgive the people who have done us wrong and that makes sense too many of us but it actually doesn't make sense to your well-being, when you think about it. I’m not saying that you shouldn't forgive people when they've done you wrong, but consider that there is a very good chance they don't even know they've done you wrong or that they have forgotten about it or even worse, they remember but they don't care. So who is really at the greater loss? You! You are the person that you should forgive, and there are only two ways to put an end to the situation. Address them or ... (play podcast)
We are constantly surrounded by instructions as well as instructors. It's not just a piece of paper that comes with the TV stand that you just got it's about life and what happens and how we respond to it. We all want to think that were smarter than the instructions but we're not. That's the first way to look at it the second way is...
In the game of life there are several things that are really out of our control like people walking out of our life. Initially, we may ask ourselves what happened? But obviously, that’s none of your business. To that end, If you live long enough you say, that NEEDED to happen. Rarely do people walk out of your life because they didn't do something for YOU it is almost always because you didn't do something for THEM, this means that everything “good” that you have done doesn’t count because the one perceived negative thing they think that you did is paramount. This means you (listen to the rest on the podcast)
No matter how hard you try to listen allowing someone to dump their trash on you it is alwys going to make you one thing ... exhausted. - Of course there are times that we all need an ear and you can listen but proceed with caution and make sure there is a bed nearby so you can take a nap after you listen.
Needless to say, complaining is what therapy is for and many people don't know that THERAPISTS have to have THERAPY to unload the stuff that people load onto THEM. We have our own trash to take out and we've got to walk it to the curb. The garbage man is not coming to your door to have coffee and ask about each item in the trash bag and how it got there nor does he get paid for your explanation. So before you pick up the phone and hijack someone's energy, note that they have their (listen to podcast)
When it comes to business or life our greatest asset is not money, love or networking but it’s your time. How we USE it will determine if we have the best love, the most money or the opportunities to network properly. Are you using your time wisely? When we do things that are not aligned with our best interest, we not only waste time but we lose the energy to use additional time wisely. So ADDITIONAL time is wasted. We get energy from being in sink with what we desire and what flows with the direction that we are going in. So as far as the things that we can control, there should be no excuse to ...
