While it’s a good idea to subscribe to a few lists to get the 411 on what’s going on in the Internet marketing and business world, if you’re on too many lists you can easily get bombarded with emails that it all becomes noise and you end up reading nothing. If that’s you, maybe it’s time to scale back a little?
Some of my favorite entrepreneurs include Lewis Howes, Tony Robbins, Ramit Sethi and Jack Canfield but I do my best not to overdo it because I value what they say and also value my time. When I subscribed to a litany of lists and got showered in daily emails, I started to get time-sucked into Youtube and blog wormholes (says a blogger) and in the end, I stopped reading and watching a lot of them.
So I scaled back and probably subscribe to 8-10 lists now. One of them, consulting guru Sam Ovens, sent an email today that bears repeating. In its essence, it talks about having patience in business and that’s good advice. If you’re just starting out or you’re in a venture that’s not panning out as well as you first thought, before you bail and move on to the next thing take a step back and look at things from 30,000 feet, so to speak.

The subject heading above is bold but when you’re talking about an inspirational and proven heavyweight like Jack Canfield, he gets a pass.
I’ve blogged about Jack Canfield before because he’s made a positive impact in mine and my family’s lives and it bears repeating. The iconic author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series is hosting a transformational webinar titled ‘The 7 Pillars of True Life Transformation’. Among other topics, it explores how to become a positive influence to others in your personal and professional life and how to break free from your inner prison.
If you’re at a place in life where you beat yourself up and question your value this free webinar is worthy of your time. If you’re not and just need positive reinforcement, you should be there too. This event is ideal for entrepreneurs.

The world is set up to suck you into its distractions. Particularly in this age of social media and technology moving at break-neck speeds. This is something you first have to identify is happening in your life then you need to attack it head on. Continue reading “What Problem Are You Working on Right Now?”
After 14 years in a house we’ve lovingly called home, it’s time to go now.
With moving boxes lined everywhere around the house, it’s pretty hectic, crazy and man, it can be stressful. I’m also meeting with a real estate agent next week to look at purchasing student rentals in a different city; this is also an exciting time.
But whenever you push yourself out of your comfort zone and feel you’ve taken on more than you can handle, the stress levels of uncertainty can pile up pretty quickly. Continue reading “9 Ways to Reduce Stress”

I’ve gushed about Jack Canfield in a previous post and how he’s played a role in my family’s success. As the co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, he does a training called the Success Principles. In one of the audios he talks about his relationship with his mentor, future head of a billion dollar company and philanthropist, W. Clement Stone.
He reflects on a question Mr. Stone asks him about accountability. Paraphrased, Jack is asked “Do you take responsibility for all your results?” He pauses then says, “um, I think so.”
