Learn to Earn

by Justin Lukasavige on November 29, 2009

I’m not a big fan of certifications and degrees. Statistics tell us that 10 years after college graduation, 80% of graduates are doing something completely unrelated to their degree.

I am a big fan of learning however. Books, college and community college classes, seminars, workshops, teleseminars, webinars, ecoaching, hiring a coach, mastermind groups; they all help you increase your knowledge.

And since we live in a knowledge-based economy, now is the time to learn. Increase your knowledge = increase your income.


Twice the Work, Half the Time

by Justin Lukasavige on November 27, 2009

On holiday weeks like this one I find it interesting that most of us get the same, if not more, work done as we do during normal weeks.  But we do it in half the time.

What if every week were a holiday week?  That’s what happens in a Results Oriented Workplace (ROW).  Do the work and leave.  Who came up with 9 to 5 anyway?


Does My Spelling Drive You Nuts?

Are you losing clients because you can’t spell? It happens to the best of us, but there is a solution.


Be Willing to Pay the Price

by Justin Lukasavige on November 22, 2009

In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell shows how nearly everyone who has become successful at something has put in a minimum of 10,000 hours working at it.  From Olympic athletes to concert pianists, they’ve all committed and put in the time.

“If people only knew how hard I work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.” – Michelangelo

I’m wondering what you’re willing to do.  My wife Christine and I paid off $45,000 in debt one year to become debt free (everything but our house) when we only made an income of $60,000.  We obviously sold some things but we worked our butts off during those 12 months.

If you want it bad enough there is very little stopping you.  But are you willing to pay the price?


Stop Planning

by Justin Lukasavige on November 20, 2009

“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”
- Abraham Lincoln

Planning is great, but I have a feeling it’s time for you to take action.  I don’t know what it is but you may have to jump into it.  Start your business, get out of debt, take your wife out to dinner.  Stop talking and start doing.

President Lincoln was obviously smart enough to get his face sculpted into a mountain in South Dakota.  If it worked for him, I’m guessing it will work for you too.

Don’t Create what Your Market Wants, Create what they would Love

November 19, 2009

Most of us need a phone in our house.
We want things that make our lives easier like cell phones.
We love the iPhone.
When you create a product or service, design it with love in mind.  It’s one thing that will set your business apart from all of the other mediocre businesses, and they’ll never be able [...]

You don’t have to Write well to Sell a Book

November 18, 2009

You only have to look to Gary Vaynerchuk and his book Crush It which has been at the top of nearly every best seller list for the past few weeks.  Gary spoke the entire book which was then transcribed into written form.
Anyone can be a writer.  You don’t even have to be the best writer [...]

Don’t Make Your Customers Wait

November 13, 2009

I’m not a huge fan of Wal-Mart but the company just built a new store near our house. It rocks! Seriously, it’s clean, has open space, the people are very friendly and my wife Christine has a new favorite store.
She’s been shopping there (groceries and all) for the past 30 days. Today, that [...]
