Recommended Posts

it is 5 am... My first day formally starting the year off. I run my own business by myself ..on my own. It gets tough out these but tougher on me if i fail. I have droopy eyelids but have a fire in my tummy. I have made my decision ..this year i am going to do everything possible for the heck of it to turnover one million dollars. I am interested to see what lengths my mind will go to to make this happen. Its funny that when times get tough something happens to me...a passion lurking in my mind..a passion to live,a passion to love,a passion to win. Where most people give up i keep on fighting up until the end. One thing...i will keep my dignity,compassion and humanity first. I am a husband... I am a father ..i am a lover ..i am a friend...

 

 

I can win...there is no regret..there is no fear all that there is now and here..

 

 

Have a good day ..

Go for it. A goal is a great thing to pursue. Most importantly, be happy and proud of yourself for going after it. That in itself is accomplishment #1.

 

Put together a business plan laying out your market segments, how to reach them, what to sell to them, and how to differentiate your product from others. IMO differentiation is what leads to higher revenues.

Top Bloke, good for you!!!

 

(Ready for another similarity?)

 

I'm a business owner and can you believe I didn't set a goal for this year? I had a few curveballs thrown my way last year (including the US economy problems and I can not afford to hire anyone but I really need people) so I lost sight of the big picture for a while. I got so overwhelmed with work the past few months and being that I can't hire anybody, I have to do it myself which has just clouded my vision of the big picture.

 

Determination is everything, isn't it? I'm up for the race and you're ahead of me! I've got some catching up to do! Time to remember the big picture, set our sights on the goal and hit the ground running!

 

Here we come 2009!!!

Hey, Her Destiny.... I don't know what kind of business you have, but would it be possible to bring in interns to help at all? You could offer to teach business skills and provide contacts or recomendations in return for some labor on their part.

 

Just an idea.

Good to have a goal...

 

Was talking to my business partner last night (we started our business with just £500 in the bank), we have had our company for five years, and have started to diversify.

 

If you can find it there is always opportunity even in adverse circumstances...

Determination is a big factor. To achieve this goal I must make it realistic. Today so far i have pulled in 200 dollars.I can potential pull in 800 a day...4000 per week multiplied by 52 weeks ..I can pull a potential 208000 this year by manual labour However licking my old wounds and recovering has left me with not enough customers to do this.The effort to attract more can be used more wisely.

I need a huge market. I cannot rely on manual work to achieve my goals... I am going to put my efforts towards an internet based business or businessess. I have to use my logic. To make 1 million in turnover I must sell one product at 1million or 1 million 1 dollar products.

The logistics of selling the single product is easier but warranty and back up service would eat net profits. The cheaper multiple product would need a form of efficient delivery and efficient tracking to make it work. I dont want to get a big structure going as this will make it less flexible. Some basic rules and then let it loose. I must however..be competitive and have an idea of where I am stepping. In saying that I step out of the house every morning in a leap of faith.

My next manual job is a bit over one hour...i am at a nice park..I have got 1 hour to walk and sprint around this place... They say that health is the most important thing..this is true ..but without a pocket full of cash I cant go too far either..

Herdestiny..I am gonna check my car for bugs and if I am being followed because you are right...we have experienced many similar things...hehe

One other thing...the world economy is just fear mongering..take advantage of the worlds fear and dig your heels in right now if you can...it is the perfect time to surge ahead as they shake in their boots theyre possy cats.

It is part of my plan to strike alot more fear into my dirty competitors minds. I can control them and the market by doing so

The jig isup. I have had some terrific success in the past.It is not easy.. It is very very hard to do it. The major damper for success in Australia is the taxation system.. You see I had some moral and ethical issues to deal with as well...

Imagine yourself with a skill..Imagine that you can contract out your services.Ok..then imagine if you will that the day of work ahead of you require 8 men to do what is before you..8 grown men required to do 11 hours of hard technical work.. Imagine those 8 grown men feeling pure exhaustion at the end of the day.. Then imagine me..at a peak ..muscles popping...a fire in my heart uheard of even in the darkest battlefields..In my mind..winning...in my heart..my loved ones..imagine then..that I threw myself in ..and finished the work of my competitors 8 men even quicker than them and to a standard that got me repeat business.

As the dollars rolled in like flies..I was treated like a celebrity..I had hundreds of plastic friends..the acounts department..the women saw the cash I was pulling in and flung themselves at me with an annoyig persistence despite knowing I was married.. I denied all of them...I ahd my babies and wife at home..

Imagine facing this every day!! How much could one man continue like this day in day out? How much.. It was tiring ..Along the way I also met man genuine people ..we talked of good things..they were in a sense my spirit helpers..

It all came to end a few years later..What brought me undone ? Jealousy!! I had become so popular with the organisations people that they would not call anyone else.They were loyal. The top people in the organisation I was contracting to had friends to engage ..they saw I was excellent at my trade...and efficient.They were extremely jealous!!

 

I then invented a method of modifying some of their equpment which was never done in the world before...I became an even bigger success.!!

It all came to a head with their jealousy greed ..They had their own technical departments that could not work out the solution I created in my garrage in 20 minutes!! I was kicked out ...I had however sensed their feeling and picked up other outside clients in the process. It came to be that there was bribery going on in the background!!

To patent the idea would have cost me 10,000 dollars and patents are useless if someone makes a change in design..I looked at my babies..I looked at my lovely wife...and prayed..."god I have faith in you and only you..you are my guiding light..all material things are insignificant in your greatness..I give my fate to you so please guide my steps in the direction you will amen"

 

I had to start all over again..From 5 am starts and full days to quieter times..

I looked back and was very angry still.I had great contempt for these people and wanted them to experience the same pain back..I gave them heaps..undermined the individual responsible as I was still very popular and he was forced to resign..

 

I carried this anger for many years ..and then one day I had realised that the experience had changed my quality of life.. Then a blessing /curse hit me.In hospital I realised it was time to forgive and move on. I was free again..

 

Sometimes we dont need the 1 million dollars.Maybe sometimes we get so caught up in doing so that we forget the wonderful simple things that we have at home which we take for granted.

 

Jigsup..you see it is not so easy to make a million dollars.

That is why I wont tell exactly what my business is ..I want to protect my ideas.I want to use my brain..not kill myself again.

 

Money is a very character building process...you have to be 3 steps ahead of everyone all the time!!

You are motivating me here..it is great to be amongst that type of good energy You want to race eh? HEHEH . Hit the ground running...this is a good way to do it..Thinkiing too much causes procrastination and there is no teacher like experience.Go for it.. I warn you however my bikes faster

 

I have set my goal but I dont want to do it the way I did in the past..I am strong but I have better insight now..and not as strong as I used to be.My true strength lies in the enjoyment of my life..my family ..a simple flower..a friend.. You see looking back at my experience..I am even more happy just being me ..

 

Binno,cotuner Id also like to quickly thank you both for your input ..

I'm sorry, if you don't want to state the nature of your business, I'm not interested. I'm a teacher. I'm not rich, but I can brag about what I do.

 

I am married to a teacher....I have a soft spot for teachers..they are special to my heart.

I am very well known in Sydney .I work in a very specialised field and so my privacy will be wide open if I say what I do and while my experience is out I am leaving the past where it belongs and living for this fine moment that i am blessed to open my eyes get out of bed and make this day my finest day.

You dont have to say sorry..I am sorry if I put you off guard and made you a little defensive.. I make an honest living but know the destructive power of living in the past...it is a brand new day..smile,be kind to ourelves...love and live every day as if it were our last!!
