The Future of Health Care Is Here Now With The 4 Pillars of Vibrant Health – Alert Many Doctors and All Pharmaceutical Companies Will Disagree

Doctor of the Future

 

Health Care As Defined By Most

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on a fairly large university that self funds it’s health care program. The essence of the article is there is a growing struggle because of the rapidly escalating cost of prescription medication and medical services. The solutions being implemented include: higher co-pays, use of generic prescriptions where possible and limited prescription refills for certain drugs. For example a person may get a two week supply of a very expensive drug rather than one month to make sure they were benefiting from the medication. There is more to this process of  managing traditional health care to ensure the procedures being reimbursed are reasonable and necessary.  That is a separate topic.

The Above Partial Example Whether It Is For Self Insured Plans, Insured Care or Provided Care Is Not Health Care – It Is Sick Care.

Building Business Profits FastIn my book Building Business Profits Fast that was published in 2013 I devoted an entire chapter to what I labeled The Gold Formula tm This formula applies to any situation in life whether it be professional or personal. Here is how it applies in the health care arena:

What is the goal?

My goal is to be healthy. Do I manage my life to be healthy? Yes I do. Do most of the people I know manage their life to be healthy? No they do not.

What would I do if I were responsible for the health care of the country or a company?

I would manage health like I manage health care for myself. As above, I would first define the goal which is to be healthy. Note I am excluding those situations for now that are the few exceptions. Those include accidents and the small percentage of situations where the attention of medical professionals is clearly valuable.

Once you define the goal then it is important to be specific as to what are the strategic areas that based on the information we have today are the ones where we need a game plan? There are four and I refer to these as the four pillars of health care – health care for me,  a company and for the nation.

The Four Pillars ofHealth System For Achieving The The Goal of Being Healthy

antiaging11. Mindset – each person needs to decide what they need to have the right mindset for health. This means each person needs to understand there are resources for personal growth and development that address minimizing stress which is a leading cause of high blood pressure and heart attacks. Healthy mindset means in your heart and mind you know it is natural to be healthy and to advance in life with vibrant energy. Once you know that then you can reinforce that mindset with resources that help you navigate the stuff our ego throws at us. We define that stuff as problems and stress. There are many other areas where self- development helps a person including self-worth, confidence, expanded consciousness and more. Personal: I devote minimum 30 minutes and often more to achieving my mindset goals.

These mindset resources also reinforce the importance of:

Healthy Foods22. Healthy lifestyle as defined by what we eat and drink. People in America mostly eat industrialized processed food and contaminated water. Bad water is found everywhere including in the bottles we buy. Why in the world we accept GMO fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy and fish is beyond my comprehension. Healthy lifestyle also includes:

13. Exercise and the main point is we strengthen our immune system when we regularly exercise. Regularly means at least 30 minutes 4 times a week. For anyone to do that the exercise program of choice like the food and drink we choose to make part of our life must be sustainable. If you love going to the gym that is the right program for you. If you love yoga, dancing, walking, running, biking, skating …whatever it is, that is the right program for you. If you think you are going to love your top pics everyday let me be clear you are not. What you have to love is the picture and feeling of being healthy. That picture and feeling will be your why. In America we generally have given the responsibility to our doctors and pharmacists. That does not work. These three pillars are incomplete now that we know about:
capillary4. Increase the circulation in our capillary system that naturally slows down as we age, experience stress, experience physical or emotional trauma and from environmental influences including less than optimal food and drink, pollution, electromagnetic impulses from cell phones, WiFi, radio, TV and more. When this circulation system slows down,cell cannot get the blood needed for nutrition, oxygen and waste removal. When the cells begin to not function properly, health problems begin. The common treatment is prescription medication which can further slow the circulation. Our capillary circulatory system is minute, extensive and has not nerve receptors. When diabetics begin to lose circulation in their limbs and most notably in their legs they can run the risk of amputation. This is because medication, massage and other therapies do not increase that circulation.
People with the healthiest lifestyles including those in MLM that market high quality supplements still have the problem with this circulatory system slow down because of the factors mentioned above. Note I am an advocate of the MLM industry. I have found that I provide more value by focusing on this 4 Pillar System.  The Fourth Pillar is an FDA Class 1 Medical Device  This is German technology that is nearly two decades old proven to increase the circulation in our capillary network. It is so good I know there is nothing else like it. It is so good NASA partnered with the company. When combined with the first three pillars, we now have the foundation for a very rewarding health care system.

How This All Relates To The Gold Formula tm

Gold Formula tmThe Gold Formula tm is simply tracking the variance from plan. I discovered the Gold is in the variance and for anyone to have a variance they have to have plan and measure actual results against the plan.

This 4 Pillar Plan Will Work For More Than 90% of The Population.

I have just begun to get this message out. Please adopt and share if it makes sense to you.

Closing Stores and Cutting Expenses Is Not The Formula for Building Business Profits Because Those Actions Are Not The Cause

ExcellenceWhen you look at the data and the results it is easy to understand why a business is successful and another one fails. Amazon continues to expand what it offer and levels of service. They are obsessed with getting it right and your satisfaction. I am a Prime member and I think it costs about $79.00 a year. What that gets me is free shipping and fast delivery. I recently ordered several items that I use regularly the prices were better than Sams Club and delivered right to my door in 2 days. It is amazing service and that is the key to success in business.

Have you been to a Radio Shack lately? See the point? Relentless attention to delivering what the customer wants is key. For the record I am not knocking the helpful attitude of people who work at Radio Shack. In fact their willingness to help is generally far greater than what you will find at most retail stores. However, look at the rest of the picture of customer service. I have never received one email from Radio Shack and I am a customer. I receive emails from Amazon everyday. Because Radio Shack does not communicate with me I have no idea of what they are recommending or promoting and they have no idea of what I think of their service. On the other hand Amazon asks me to rate every transaction.

I am not an insider to Amazon and do no work for them. I would make a strong bet they have statistics on all areas of performance and are consistently looking for ways to improve. In reading articles about and interviews with Jeff Bezos, my impression is he operates at the level of founder as well as anyone in the world. He focuses on what will Amazon look like three to five years from now and even beyond. Most executives have no idea as to the precise roles of a founder, CEO and CFO. Most companies follow traditional organization structure and classical organization behavior still taught in most business schools. If those principles worked, companies like Radio Shack and others would be thriving.

Is there an absolute fool proof roadmap. My answer is yes with one qualification: people must use and implement it. Want to know more? Call Me.

Solutions

Strongbrook for positive residual cash flow What Do You Want?

When asked , most people’s answers include some variation of the following:

1. Good health
2. Financial freedom
3. Meaningful relationships

The definition of each of these is personal.  However, in order to achieve your definition of each and all of this top three list the intended outcome or goal needs to be clear. This article is mostly focused on the second item in the list – Achieving  Financial Freedom – This is A Solution

Most people know that residual income means money that comes to you on a recurring basis without you having to repeat an action.  For example, if you have money invested in a fund the yields a 4% return, the return is residual.  People who produce  songs, movies, books receive royalties which is residual. Those who build a successful team in a network marketing business earn a residual income.  If you own a business that has employees and is profitable, the earnings can be considered residual.

Residual income equals financial freedom  when the income exceeds the expenses of the lifestyle you desire.  For most people this can never be a reality because there has not been a practical, predictable way to achieve this – until now.

In the last month I learned of a company whose business model is totally focused on providing everyone regardless of how much or little money they have with the product and support for not only achieving financial freedom but also offering the resources for achieving improved health, fitness and relationships.  More on the health and relationship solutions in another article 

The Foundation of Financial Freedom

The Strongbrook Group.  has three pillars to their business model which are:

1.  Real Estate:  helping people develop their own single family home portfolio that are rented and produce positive monthly cash flow – residual income that achieves the individual’s financial freedom definition.  This is a 100% do it for you model with your involvement being making the decisions. This model in the real estate industry is called labeled Turnkey .  Take a close look at how this can help you achieve your financial freedom goal.  Click Here

Gift For You: FREE Book   strait-path-book

2. Entrepreneurship: in this pillar Strongbrook has developed a system for helping people currently not in a position to make a down payment on a turnkey residential property.  The name of this division is Strongbrook Direct  My view is that this is brilliant because there is now a way for anyone to create an income stream that is the foundation for buying your own properties.  Click Here to learn more about Strongbrook Direct.

3. Personal Development: the newest division of Strongbrook is Conscious Creator Mentoring Network.  All of us can benefit from mentors and we advance the fastest when specialists help us.  There is an exciting  business opportunity and a pay it forward model that are part of this exciting new division.  I will share more about this very soon.  For now, anyone who has achieved a measure of success has mentors and devotes meaningful time to personal development. All of us need to have and use a personal development program. Strongbrook is bringing together some of the best resources and mentors for us.

“I Am Responsible”

It should be clear that depending on the government,  a company, and in many cases the community for your health and well being  is at best a very risky strategy.  Independently secure in the areas of health, prosperity and relationships is a practical and achievable goal. Strongbrook is a very sound well established company and there is an extended team to help you as well.  

This is a brief introduction. I have included some links to help you learn more and I am available to answer your questions.  The next move is up to you.

Why I Recommend Real Estate Investing and Network Marketing To Those Who Want To Be Entrepreneurs

In a one hour movie recently released by Eric Worre, he interviewed some very well know experts. Harry Dent talked about the true level of the debt owed by the US and the number is staggering and scary. Robert Kyosaki showed the dramatic negative trends in food stamps, college graduate incomes and student loans. Most of these statistics I was aware of except for student debt which is now over $1 trillion and if you declare bankruptcy you still own student loans. So people are going into more debt to get more education. What is the result, lower paychecks than in the past.

Don’t misread this. My daughter is a doctor. She would not be a doctor without the education and the support of the student loan program. Our society needs medical professionals, scientists, teachers and other professionals who need to be qualified by our university and special education systems. However, the vast majority of people entering higher education are not seeing the likely outcome clearly and will be well served by taking a look at the economic reality of our world today.

All interviewed by Eric in this movie were in support of the message that it is harder and harder for many people to feel confident about earning a living at a level where they are not worried about their bills. The days of being able to count on a 40 hour a week job that provides an acceptable level of income for a lot of people are long gone. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace and often makes a well established business or industry obsolete. Look at what happened to the majority of book stores in the last decade. Look at the market share shift in the last decade because of companies like Apple, Google and others. Do the research on the amazing number of companies that were once very commonly known in America are out of business.

With those trends which are not very bright, people still need a place to live people need products and services. That leads me to the two industries that get my vote for where more people should be paying attention. Those are real estate investing and network marketing. Network marketing is often referred to as direct sales or multi-level marketing.

The reasons I like both of these industries the best for people thinking about being in business for themselves are:

1. Very little money is required to learn the businesses
2. There is plenty of evidence of people making good money in those industries
3. The training is outstanding and most of it is relatively low cost or free.

Let’s look at training for example. If you select the right network marketing company and sponsor, the training is amazing. In real estate it is true you do not need your own money or credit for deals. However, because of the dollar size of the transactions you are well served by being mentored by one or more people who will help you and JV with you as you get started.

Cost of entry: In real estate you can get started for about $1,000. It is better if you have $5,000 to $10,000 because there are some programs that cost money that will really help you get to a faster start. However with about $1,000 for gas and a few other supplies you can get started. I know of people who make $3-$5000 checks in their first month. Is that typical – I would say yes for the people following the directions and devoting more than 20 hours a week to the business. In Network Marketing you can get started with most companies for $250-$500. If you work hard you can begin to make money your first month. I have met people who make over $20,000 in their first three months. I don’t think that is typical.

What is the one skill you must have as an entrepreneur? In my view it is the skill of being able to get past rejection. There is one sure fire way getting past being rejected – set really high goals and be relentless on following them with the guide of a very experienced mentor and team.

Now you have my vote and why. What is yours and why. I welcome your comments.

WANTED: Private Equity for Real Estate Investments

strategic real estate equity partners

To Be Clear – Private Equity Funding Partner for Real Estate Wanted.

Distressed single family homes, distressed multi-family homes, buy fix and flips, buy and hold. 

Amount: Equity is normally 20-30% of the total amount funded. While we have approximately $5 million of deals in our pipeline, this could easily be much higher with the right private equity partner deal participation. 

Return: Most deals have a projected annualized ROI  of 40% or higher. Single family buy fix and flips are much higher. 

About: Very experienced real estate investor with an rapidly expanding network of great deals and team members to manage the process.

Contact: Steve Pohlit Email Ph 727-587-7871

A Real Estate  Equity Deal Partner Is Strategic For Our Business

The real estate investing  industry is vibrant and offers many  rewards for adding value.  We are very interested in attracting one source of equity funds for our real estate business.  Our business model is primarily investing in the niche of distressed real estate properties both residential and commercial multi-family. There are exceptions.  We are most interested in a real estate  equity deal partner that contributes to our profitable growth and helps us lower the transaction costs. Since we only recommend deals where we are confident with the profit, a positive deal doing mindset is important.

In a previous article I wrote that nearly every business has one barrier to massive profitable growth. (Click Here for the complete article.) For my firm it is equity funding for our real estate deals.  Working with our continually expanding network, we find really good deals in markets where we have teams that are skilled in managing the day to day requirements of a renovation and then our exit strategy.

Real Estate Investment Deal Structure

Most real estate transactions are a combination of debt and equity. When buying, renovating then reselling distressed properties, debt is short term or often referred to as bridge financing or hard money loans.  The cost of this debt is higher than more traditional bank financing.  Regardless of the source of debt financing, some level of equity is needed. The percentage varies by lender requirement.

Generally we are successful having lenders fund 75-85% of the total cost of the deal including the cost of debt interestingly enough.  For example one deal we are working on has all in costs including cost of money of $4 million. The lender will fund $3.0 million which leaves us to bring $1.0 million of equity.  For his deal we are projecting the equity partner will receive a 46% annualized rate of return on their money.  This percentage is often higher on smaller deals because the time line from start to finish is shorter. For example it is common for us to project annualized returns for equity funding partners greater than 80% for a single family fix and flip.

Our Deal Focus

We like deals where we are adding value to the property which in turns adds value for the final buyer or tenant. When we do this we improve the neighborhood and the community. We have an increased focus on using more alternative power in our projects and “green technology”.

Equity Deal Funding Resource Targeted 

The volume and size of deals we are finding are growing.  Accordingly we are interested in a source of equity that will support our growth.  This means having access to at least $10 million liquid for an equity participation on a deal by deal basis over then next 4-6 months is strategic for us.

If this catches your attention I would love to talk with you
