How To Identify If Your Business Measures Up Or Is Spoon Fed

If you’re reading this article, you are probably seeking the missing puzzle pieces that you need to finally get your home-based business going. You are totally committed to your parent company and their products, you do everything you are told and your loyalty and dedication are unmatched. You don’t want to admit there is a problem because you don’t want to waste all of the hard work you’ve put into your business, but you are tired of seeing the same people up on stage saying they are doing the same things you are doing. They are rich and you aren’t. Keep reading.

I’ve seen other speakers arrive onstage astride a Harley-Davidson, or pushed on seemingly asleep in a bed. However… this is only for those who are VERY confident of being able to pull it off, and is a high-risk gambit (Microsoft scott levy fuel Steve Ballmer’s histrionic, over-the-top opening at one company conference virtually made him a laughing stock; watch it on YouTube) – the rest of your talk needs to just as impactful, or it will be incongruent.

I remember growing up and listening as my father complained. He asked a friend to sharpen his pocketknife and his friend did so. The problem is that as a habit, his friend sharpened both ends of the knife, blade end, and the tip of the dull end. When father ran his finger over the dull end, he found out about the sharpened tip on the dull end, the hard way.

So, the income benefit is a guaranteed $200K but as far as the account value goes, your guess is as good as mine. It may be more or less. With a 3% annual fee, the account must gain at least 10% to keep up with the guaranteed income benefit. Has the market ever done that? Have you ever seen the market hit exactly 10% annually for ten straight years? It has not. The market has done better and it has done worse. Sounds kind of like rolling the dice. Thank God for that GLWB.

This is only appropriate for conferences, obviously, not a presentation to 6 people around a boardroom table. One way I sometimes begin my ‘Corporate Combat’ keynote speech is by playing a tape of battle sounds (machinegun fire, explosions, etc.) at high volume before entering dressed in military uniform, shouting at them like a deranged Sergeant-Major. The buzz that this creates is amazing.

We are like someone in debt that continues to borrow money and keeps sinking even deeper. We can not keep this up indefinitely. Who do we have to thank for this? You guessed it our incompetent Government. Apparently the US Government has been tearing this country down for years without any plan for building it back up. They have only been catering to big business and big money. Doing favors for those contributing to their party fundraisers. Money first people second if at all.

He will be a father to you. His burden will be light. We call our priests father. He brings nourishment, nutrition, far more than he brings commands. Still, we need to notice the essence of these commands, the burden of which is easy and the yoke of which is light.

It does not matter who is President if we do not build this country from the bottom up nothing is going to work. This is why a stimulus package and tax cuts will not work. It is like a business, it is built from the ground up not from the top to bottom. The top down plan does not work. If we do not bring industry back to the US the economy will totally and completely collapse.
