You want to keep them all up there without anyone falling. Not so easy, is it? To really appreciate and enjoy what you have, balancing the many aspects of your life is essential, but many people aren’t very good at it.  Read more.

Life Update: Making the Jump

Over the course of the last year or so, I came to realize that my 9 to 5 gig was killing me. I had arrived at a place in my career where I was respected and valued by my peers, but the work itself no longer inspired me. In fact, at the risk of sounding too dramatic, it was leaching my soul out of my body one excruciating drop at a time.

Everyday meant getting up and dreading going to work. I was endlessly frustrated, disappointed, discouraged, and frankly depressed. I wanted to feel good about what I was contributing to this world, and my “day job” had ceased to be an environment where I could feel happy and proud of myself. Read more.

The History Of Franchising, And Why Today It’s Easier Than Ever

Once upon a time, if you wanted to buy a franchise, you might have found an ad in the paper, like the one that appeared in a 1949 New York Times issue, which I recently found while combing through some online library newspaper archives.

“Do you have $10,000 to $20,000 to invest?” the headline blared in the classifieds. It continued: “We will set you up to operate a successful ladies cotton dress shop, on a franchise basis. Successful stores now operating in New York State, New Jersey and Long Island. You can locate the store in your own community, no experience necessary. Excellent opportunity to develop your own business and make a comfortable living. Write for appointment.”

It’s a different world now. There are franchise brokers, franchise websites, franchise books and franchise coaches such as myself. Read more.

There Are Two Types Of Entrepreneurs – Both Can Benefit From An Aligned Hustle

Hard work is often lauded as the key American virtue that leads to success and opportunity. It has preoccupied the business world for years creating a divide and resulting in two camps: Hustle Nation vs. Ease & Flow.

On one side are entrepreneurs who grind. They put in long, arduous hours and focus on high-performance achievement, devoting themselves completely to their businesses.

On the other side are entrepreneurs who concentrate largely on sustaining lifestyle businesses (with a focus on mindset: clarity, alignment, and attraction).

Both sides have their pros and cons. Read more.
