Ideas for Self Sustainability

You may be wondering what it is that I am talking about.  You are probably saying of course I am self- sustainable I work, take care of my family, have 2 vehicles, pay my bills on time, etc. etc., of course I am self-sustainable!.  Really friends are you?  As the days go by and the “old wars” are still going on and the new ones are starting I can’t help to think of how all of this will end.

I believe that it will all end when we all realize that there is a game being played on us!  How do you feel about the facts of food being genetically designed to overcome drought, disease and pest.  Sounds like a Frakenstein movie doesn’t it?  But the reality of it is that it is going on now and has been for some time.  Do you really believe that it is just a coincidence?  Don’t you find it odd that nowadays children have adult diseases and more adults are relying on pharmaceuticals to make it thru the day?

All of this has been happening for the last 30-50 years not even a blink in Earth’s time and still we continue on scratching our heads and wondering what is possibly going wrong, how can the government help us?  First of all that is why we are in this position because of the government helping us and second we all have strayed far away from what is primal to us.  Growing our own foods, being neighborly to the local butcher and being part of a community.  Now when I say community I don’t mean a subdivision that has HOA with a promise of “protecting” you behind bars with codes that get changed every month and a facade of well manicured greenery.  It’s just another version of big brother watching and please don’t be fooled.

Now it’s not a bad thing if you like that and that is your right and I went of on a rant so I will get back on course.  Do you know you can grow your own garden in your own by using plastic bottles by the window in your home organically?  Even better there are certain nurseries in your area that can help you with such a project and help you pick fruits and vegetables that will grow well in your area.  Pretty neat huh?  Also if you live in a state where you have ideal weather for growing such jewels you can create a space in your yard!  Great resources will be your local nursery, motherearthnews.com, infowars.com and freedomforceinternational.com to name a few.  Of course let us not forget the internet which has a plethora of information at your fingertips at any time you want and need.

That is self sustainable, able to grow your goods, kill your meat and make a shelter with all the resources at your front door is the meaning of self.  After all we haven’t grown as a race by having technology, vehicles, phones and the like.  We have grown because when things have gone “bad” we go back to our primal self and survive.  So my friends when things get sticky here in the near future will you be ready?  I know I will be and I will be keep you posted on the progress hopefuly we can help each other on this journey, until then have a marvelous day!

Making Important Decisions

Why People make important decisions?  That is a very “difficult” question for we all have different ideas, lifestyles, perceptions and impressions.

I am not talking about whether you should wear that tie with that shirt, or buy that newer flat screen television or a new pair of shoes.  The decision I am talking about is a life changing one, the one people will remember you for a long time.

Think about the pilgrims, they sailed the Atlantic to come to North America, why.  Why would they sacrifice their lives, leave their comfort and knowledge of a place to come to an unknown one?  They made the decision because they knew that there was something better, something of their own and something life changing.

We all hold the keys to make that important decision.  The important decisions we make takes us to the level of enlightenment, to a place where we need to be.  It is the process of reaching the ultimate goal, your destiny.

To help you make those important decisions I put a little list of books that may help in that process.  There are many books that can help if you decide not to read the ones provided or you have read them already: “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen, “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill, and “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki.  Remember you are not alone and only you can make that decision.
“They themselves are makers of Themselves”, James Allen

Your Score, Why you Should Care?

We see it, we hear about it, we experience and we use it but do you know why you should care if the score is high or low? I will talk briefly about your credit score and why you should care.

As you may or may not know, your credit score is really a reflection of your “buying and borrowing” history. Credit cards are borrowed money we all have used it to buy clothes, food, airline tickets and possibly some investments but the fact doesn’t change that it is still borrowed money. How you pay back that loan is very important in establishing a trust between you and possible future lenders.

Often we all make the mistake to miss a payment, max a card out or not pay it back at all. These actions will and can affect any thoughts of buying a home, changing employments and even buying a vehicle. These delinquent actions demonstrate that you are not a trustworthy person and a high risk.

Some banks won’t lend you money if your score is too low and those banks that will the interest rate is so high that you will pay on that loan forever, literally. Your credit score can be affected also if there is any wrong information. That is why it is important to keep up with your report and challenge any information you know is wrong, after all this is a reflection of you.

If getting the best interest rates, a home, a new job or whatever is important to you than it would be pertinent for you to be on top of your score. Lenders are being very careful and strict on who they will lend money, don’t be left behind.

3 Steps to Starting a Small Business

Sometimes I get bothered by how so many people try to complicate everything. So, I am not going to give you 10 or 12 steps about this and that. I like to keep things simple. Lets discuss 3 steps that are essential in a profitable business, mission, team and leadership. If you master these 3, you will find everything else you need to know along the way.

Mission, what is the goal of the business. Is the goal of the business aligned with your personal mission. Example, If your personal mission in life is to help people with their health and to live disease free. Your business mission could be something like, open a franchise company that sells quality organic food at a fair price within the next year that will produce $80,000 positive cash flow per year and give back to the community.

That would be your goal when you are looking for the right business. Then once you own it your business mission could be, offer quality organic food at a fair price while educating and giving back to the community.

 

Team, the one with the best team comes to victory. It is impractical to do anything of significance by yourself. Especially when starting a business, there are too many things to do and not enough time. If you are not computer savvy does it make since to spend all your time building a website. Outsource the parts of your business you are not an expert on and focus your time on that which you are good at.
Some team members you may need are mentors, mastermind groups, CPA, business brokers, attorney, insurance agents, web designers, merchant account managers, property managers, title agent, realtors to name a few.

Leadership, “Life’s battles do not always go to the strongest or fastest man but soon or late the man who wins is the man who thinks he can” Napoleon Hill. I started with this quote because the most important trait of a leader is his belief in never giving up when his mission is true. A leader must display integrity, responsibility, courage and compassion.

The one trait a business owner needs is the ability to lead. If you are not a leader, good because leaders are not born they come out of the person that has failed and does not give up, relentless. They come from that person who says, it is my fault and I accept responsibility. No person with a victim hood mentality can be a leader. They come from the person who takes action despite fear. What is there so bad to fear anyway? You should fear, Regret, at the end of a long life, when you say I should have.
