Do What Makes Money First

Today’s Affirmation: “I am richly paid for the fun work I do!” I have three rules for making money:

1. Do what makes money now.

2. Do what makes money soon.

3. Do what makes money later.

This is of primary importance if you are in sales or own your own business (then you’re in sales too). The primary responsibility of a business is to be profitable and the primary responsibility of a salesperson is to bring in the money. Without sales, there is no money. If there is no money, there will be no business.

The Ballad of Love and Money

Today’s Affirmation: “The more I focus on success, the more love and money are mine!” The evil Witch of Lack and Lamentation hated the Land of Milk and Honey. She was invisible there. She cursed and screamed and jumped up and down but people just walked past her smiling. You can imagine how frustrating this was.

A Date at the Races

Today’s Affirmation: “Money flows to me easily and effortlessly, waking, and sleeping!” Steve was clearly an experienced handicapper, looking over the horses, jockeys, their experience and the odds on each race. Knowing nothing, I just looked at all the names and picked the ones that sounded/felt/good or just “grabbed me” in some way. Rolling his eyes, Steve snorted his contempt for my methods, but laughingly said, “Well, you’ll probably have beginner’s luck and win.” How prophetic.

Sometimes It Helps to Know a Big Fish

When I was growing up in the 50s and 60s, there weren’t any role models for what I wanted to do. In all of the families in my neighborhood, the moms were homemakers and the dads worked at an outside job. In those days, job ads were classified under “men wanted” and “women wanted” and the job descriptions were really different. Working women were secretaries, nurses, and teachers – not executives, doctors, or professional speakers.
