I believe that in order to be the best you must learn from the best. I surround myself with many mentors in the business world. I hope one day I am become a household name in business like Donald Trump or Robert Kiyosaki!
Legendary business icons Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki share their inside secrets for building entrepreneurial wealth.
This idea brings me to the concept of the Cashflow Quadrant (see the image above). The letters in each of the quadrants represent:

“There is only one way in which a person acquires a new idea: by the combination or association of two or more ideas he already has into a new juxtaposition in such a manner as to discover a relationship among them of which he was not previously aware.” ~Francis A. Cartier
Have you ever had a great idea pop in your head? What did you do with that idea? Did you write it down or just forget all about it?
Some people are afraid to act on an idea, because they are scared of what someone else might think. If you want to start acting on your ideas, keep a notepad and write them down. After you have listed your ideas start thinking about what you want to do with them.
It is common that people might not share your same vision or want you to succeed. This is why it is important to surround yourself with other likeminded individuals. A friend, co-worker, or associate might be the best person to help launch your idea. Please make sure they are trustworthy and a positive person first.
Remember Facebook, Microsoft, and electricity was once just an idea! You never know what the future holds and you could be on the brink of discovering something fantastic. America was built by innovators like you and I.
I am an only child and my imagination is very colorful. To call me a dreamer is an understatement. I started a laminated paper doll and play credit card business in elementary school. I would sell the items for 10 cents each. My parents thought it was a silly idea, until I was once able to start paying for my own lunch!
Start today and write your ideas down tomorrow. You could be the next great business owner, inventor, or entrepreneur by taking these small steps. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for tips on how to license your company or start a business.
“Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.” ~Jim Rohn
To be a great leader involves being aware of where you are and where you are trying to go. The road to success starts with a plan and being aware of what you have to do to achieve it.
I know I want to become financially independent. In order to do that, I must take the steps now to put this goal in place.
The first step is being aware of the factors that are limiting my ability to build wealth. The first road block is my social life. The frequent happy hours, dinners, and activities I do cost a lot of money over time.
I have decided to start putting myself on strict budget and limit my extracurricular activities. This has helped me prioritize my life and refocus on my goals.
I took one small step to reduce spending and this has resulting with me getting back on track to becoming financially independent. Now I am able to save more and spend more time working on my side businesses.
I truly believe if you sacrifice now, you will see the results later in life! What could you give up now to create a better future later? We all have the ability to be a leader in our own lives. Start taking charge and be aware of how small acts can turn in to bigger changes later!
“Awareness is the birthplace of possibility. Everything you want to do, everything you want to be starts here. To be a successful visionary, you must be as aware as possible. At every moment many paths lead forward. Awareness tells you the right one to take.” – Deepak Chopra
“I had to make my own living and my own opportunity! But I made it! Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them!” – Madam C.J. Walker
America was built by entrepreneurs and inventors. I have listed some information below on a female pioneer in the hair care industry.
Madam C.J. Walker was born Sarah Breedlove on December 23, 1867, near Delta, Louisiana. After suffering from a scalp ailment that resulted in her own hair loss, she invented a line of African-American hair care products in 1905. She promoted her products by traveling about the country giving lecture-demonstrations and eventually established Madame C.J. Walker Laboratories to manufacture cosmetics and train sales beauticians. Her savvy business acumen led her to become the first female self-made millionaire in the United States, and was rivaled only by the countless philanthropic endeavors for which she is also known.
