The 7 specific areas you need to consider in your franchise prototype process:
In today's blog I want to ask the question....What have you done today, to make a difference in the life of someone else? Much too often we find ourselves so busy with what we think is important only to find that the importance we placed on what we are doing isn't really important at all. We have reached a point in this nation where people really need people, to speak a kind word, to assist where it is needed, to share something you may have and someone else needs it.
You must be observant and notice people around you whether its family, friends, or co-workers, just pay attention and you will feel with your human spirit whether there is a need.
Today I'd like to talk about the three keys to business development and how you can put the right bricks in place to build a solid foundation. There are three main areas of business development:
The biggest area of turn-key businesses is franchises. There is franchise for ever industry in the world and they are fairly easy to acquire and come with practically a pop out of the box pre-assembled system. McDonald’s is a prime example. In fact, a $40 billion, 28,707 strong example.
There are a few things we are going to talk about:
Did you know that when you stretch yourself and create effective fulfilling relationships that you have your own personal network standing in the wings, ready and waiting to help you get closer to achieving whatever you want in life?
Your problem is that you haven’t stretched yourself to realize their true value and potential.
There is positive momentum and negative momentum.
Are you creating positive momentum in your life, drawing the things you want in your life, or are you pushing it away?
In this blog I'm going to give you ten suggestions (or reminders) to help you maintain focus on what really matters.

In today's blog I'd like to talk about the different types of support staff you need and what makes them so important. There are essentially three key roles that need to be filled to properly set your business up for success:
Spring has finally here in Atlanta and that always means changes. Those changes have already started, we just don't see them.
They're taking place deep underground where roots are spreading, plants are drawing the nutrition they need to flower and flourish.
Whether you like it or not change is always happening around us, in nature and in your life. Sometimes these changes are subtle, sometimes they're obvious. In some cases you can't control changes, like the changing of seasons. But there are changes that you can create, the kind of changes that you want when you apply a simple process.
In today's blog I'll show you how you can create the changes you want quickly and easily.
So Read on and enjoy!
Today’s blog is dedicated to Steve Jobs. I want to dedicate his life as an example that we all can follow. I recently listened to his speech on YouTube that he gave to a graduating class and it moved me to the point where I had to write about him and hopefully this blog will interpret the belief system that he had within.
Steve Jobs believed in himself.
Despite having the odds against him, he believed in himself.
He believed in his vision.
He believed that he could change the world and the way we communicate.
He believed he could make a difference.
And he did.
Wow... time sure does fly... it seems like it was January just yesterday.
Every year we all set certain goals and hopefully you are making progress, or already accomplished some of them. I know there are all kinds of reasons for not achieving some of those goals... but really those "reasons" are poor excuses that your mind and subconscious mind have been conditioned to accept. Your mind and subconscious mind are trained or conditioned to live the life you're currently living.
It's easy to achieve your goals and enjoy your life when you forget about the failures, do the right things, and make the right choices.
When you take the right actions you know exactly what to do intuitively when you have your subconscious mind and your inner powers working for you so they create exactly you want.
That's when life becomes easy. But no one ever tells you that life can be easy.That you can get what you want. Instead, they tell you that life is hard and that you have to struggle.
If you're not enjoying the success you want; if you're not achieving your goals, if you're not getting what you want then you're not directing your subconscious and your inner powers by being consistent and focused to make it easy for you to succeed.
You'll get what you want and you'll easily achieve your goals when you direct your subconscious mind and your inner powers to bring you what you want.
Just how do you do this?
In today's blog, I'll show you how to get your subconscious mind and your inner powers to create the success you want by following some simple but powerful steps...
When I sleep, I’m what you call a “light sleeper.” WHEN I go to bed, I climb into bed and get into maximum sleep mode by turning on my side, burrowing under about two firm pillows, and pulling the covers over my head.
I love my power sleep. And there’s nothing worse than the moment the alarm goes off at 4:00 am. It’s a shrieking, nasty, shrill alarm. It could wake the dead. That’s why I bought it. It is so loud I placed it in my office to keep from waking the house.
You see, I used to hate to get out of bed. Especially in the winter. The bed is so toasty, and my daughter Neena climbs in and we play tug of war with my favorite blanket. But I get up anyway because I know how much it impacts my entire day when I get up early. I slide out of bed, put my feet on the floor and race to my office to turn off the screeching alarm. There is a huge amount of power to starting your day with this philosophy;
“The difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary is who wants it the most.”
But I wasn't always like this.
True Abundance is achieved by stretching yourself beyond your comfort zone to pursue your passion.
When was the last time you stretched yourself to achieve more than what you currently settle for? Switched your routine?
Drove a different route to work?
Took a risk?
Every day of our lives we are presented with choices. The easiest – and safest – option is to stick with what we know, snug in our comfort zone.But the price of playing it safe can be high. By following the same schedule day after day, or staying in a job that brings no joy or satisfaction, you may be giving up your chance to live an amazing life. To achieve true abundance you have to be prepared to stretch beyond your comfort zone and pursue what you truly want in life. It’s all about stretching yourself from where you are to where you would like to be.
You've said it before. And it always stops you dead in your tracks.
"I can never do this..."
You've said it at some point. And you've probably said it more often than you realize. Somebody close to you has said the same thing - that you could never do it. It may have been someone you love. Someone you respected and trusted. And so you believed them.
Today you still believe you can't. So you never do what you really want to do. And it's all because of that doubt that says you can't. But you can.
In our blog this week we’ll take a look at how the BIG DAWGS of industry wine, dine and otherwise persuade prospects.

Balancing work and life is a lot like athletic competition: if you don’t prepare yourself mentally AND physically, you’ll find you don’t have what it takes to play the entire game and you’ll find yourself on the bench unable to help anyone. Balancing work and life and being successful requires you to stretch yourself and leave it all on the floor, but you have to be able to play until the final buzzer!
There are many people that suffer either in health or their relationships as a consequence of living a life that has fallen out of balance.
Success is all about balance.
