Success Mastery: Over Deliver – The Gift – For You

Success Mastery

Expanded Success Formula

The Success Formula

To experience what you want is  a direct connect to how many  people you help get what they want.  Notice I did not write need. Of course this is not an original thought. Zig Ziglar is credited with this but I can assure it goes back thousands of years.

Here are some recent examples:

The Rolling Stones are on tour again now.  Do you think they need more money? Do you think that maybe they get the most satisfaction from knowing they can get 10s of thousands of people going nuts just by them walking on stage.  Do you think those guys would have lived this long with their lifestyle if they were not in total bliss with who they are and how much joy they bring people.

I am friends with several spiritual leaders. Two of them have moved on to  more non religious   ventures.  I know quite a bit about each of them. I know that one was on national TV every week I know he was in demand on international stages. And I know that was very prosperous for him. The others and many others like them are just as good if not better. However they did not touch as many people.

Bob Burg in his book Go Givers addresses the income of a celebrity vs a teacher. The income is not about the value of what they do, it is about how many people you touch and not only reach them but give them what they want.  Please get the point as I am not saying teachers are fairly or unfairly paid. I am saying teachers cannot be paid $10 million a year and rock star or movie star can be paid that much and more. Now you know why.

The Law of Reciprocity

I first learned this in the book The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Katherine Ponder.  To this day this is the best book I ever read on being prosperous. In fact if I were to start again at the moment I studied this book I would not have looked for anything else. The prosperity formula is all there. I am intending to meet this woman before either one of us steps into the Universe from where we come.  This Law of Reciprocity is simply what you send out comes back to you.

I Didn’t Know 

I published my gift that I am about to share with you with a small paragraph on Facebook and LinkedIn this week  Then I thought about being able to share it more including my email contacts and other social media sites.  I decided to add The Gift to an article and this is what I am doing. However I never intended at the start to write all that I have written. I am mentioning this because my fingers are moving in response to inspirational thoughts.  I thought when I started this article would be really short. I mention this because there is another illuminating point which is “pay attention to the messages you are intended to receive” I know I was intended to write more as I look back on this and now I say to you if you are reading this far you are intended to get this message and The Gift

The Perfect Business Model

The Strongbrook Group8 Years ago The Strongbrook Group  began helping people build residual cash flow income and wealth by opening their highly successful real estate investment model.  This began to  create financial freedom for what has grown to be thousands of people. Event when the real estate market crashed, positive cash flow was maintained.

4 years ago, Kris Krohn, the founder of Strongbrook, wanted to address the group of people that wanted financial freedom and did not have the resources for a down payment or could not qualify  an investment home. Investment real estate in their model is a  single family home meeting very specific buying and rental income criteria.  They solved this problem by creating the Entrepreneur Division that provides the opportunity for anyone to earn substantial income by promoting The Strongbrook Group business model.

The founder, Kris Krohn,  and his leadership team attribute a great deal  of their success to mentoring. Kris is very passionate about personal development. In January 2015 he launched the beta version of his dream which is the third division of Strongbrook. This is named The Conscious Creator Mentoring Network and follows the name of his book The Conscious Creator.  The essence of the mentoring division is speakers, mentors, authors giveaway their best digital content to the mentoring division vault. This content becomes available to all member and Strongbrook gifts  a membership to a disadvantaged person every time a new member joins.

Why The Perfect Business Model?

The business is founded on the mission of “Empowering Personal and Financial Success” and the business model delivers on achieving that mission.  I cannot think of better example for improving an individual and in doing so improves society. Strongbrook just announced they are going global beginning in June. It will take them 24-36 months to reach 156 countries. They have the leadership in place and the track record to support my view they will achieve this expansion and at some point also achieve their goal of gifting 100 million mentoring memberships.

The Number 1 Opportunity For Small Businesses To Absolutely Kick Ass In A Market Dominated by The Big Box Stores

Build Business ProfitsIn every US market with more than about 100,000 people you will find them – the big box stores.  Most know what that description means.  For clarity they include places like Costco, Sams Club, Home Depot, Loews, Target, Walmart and so on.

I am an experienced real estate investor in the residential niche.  Along with my team we find distressed properties, renovate them and resell them to a buyer who will live in the home. We are constantly looking for distressed multi-family deals for our buy and hold strategy. In the single family home rental niche  we work with our strategic partner Strongbrook.

In order for us to be successful there must be the right products.  on time,  reliable sources of money for our deals and a strong  team of contractors and realtors. With that background I am sharing with you the number one opportunity for small to mid-size businesses selling products and services to companies like mine.

The Number 1 Opportunity For Small Businesses To Absolutely Kick Ass In A Market Dominated by The Big Box Stores

You probably already know what this is because the issue is not limited to stores servicing real estate investors.  All of us from time to time need to call the cable company or the company where we get our cell phone service.  Except of course unless you are a very successful person who can afford to have an assistant take care of these things for you. If you outsource the task then you are  generally immune from the day to day reality of  the deplorable level of customer service in this country that is pervasive at all large businesses – all.  If you are immune and you are running  a business, they you really need to pay attention to the following:

Deplorable Customer Service at All Large Companies Is The Number 1 Opportunity for Smaller Businesses.  Here are The Top 3 Actions Steps That Will Guarantee Your Competitive Edge:

  1. Never install automated attendant phone systems – never. Have a live person answer the phone all the time. That person needs to be at your business and not outsourced to some remote location. There is a process and procedure for doing this right which is beyond the scope of this article.
  2. Know your customer!  Here is one example.  We order flooring from a local supplier.  Their pricing and service is good.  They have no idea that we have projects in our pipeline, They do not have any connections to other suppliers like cabinets, kitchen and bath, tile, All you have to do is continually update your circle of qualified suppliers and contractors and refer business to them. We are always looking for qualified resources. This is so easy to do and nobody does it.
  3. Communicate with your customers. The only email I ever get from any supplier including contractors is a bill.  Nobody calls or emails me to ask about our level of satisfaction with their in-store experience,  product quality, delivery and installation where applicable.  Nobody – not one and we deal with quite a few companies.

My Number One Recommendation for the “Big Box” stores:

Each CEO needs to get out of their office and become a mystery shopper by phone an in person.  If you do this you will reinvent your company and nobody will be able to even come close.

Your comments and experiences in the market place are encouraged and welcomed.

2015 Business Development and Profit Growth Strategy

Building Business Profits Fast In my book Building Business Profits Fast I detail the importance of having a clearly defined goal that is measurable and has a very specific timeline for achievement. In an article posted on this site near the beginning of this year I presented the one element most often missing for success. Click Here for a refresher on that article That missing component is actually the theme of an entire book that I have been frequently mentioning which is Consious Creator by Kris Krohn. His book is the foundation of the newest division of The Strongbrook Group named The Consious Creator Mentoring Network which I joined as soon as I learned about it.

I consistently look for resources that will further expand my insight to goal achievement in all areas of my life. Very recently I published a report on a book by Bob Burg titled The Go-Gifter and how that is now further influencing my thinking and actions as I link The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success with the six laws of Conscious Creating in the book Conscious Creator.

All of these resources and more are influencing the clarity of my business and personal growth strategy for 2015. I am outlining that for you here with the omission of my business profits targets and non- business targets. As we near the end of the first quarter of 2015 I have already made adjustments to the measurable targets I set at the beginning of the year. At this point I am keeping those confidential except to share them with my mentors.

Primary Goal: Financial Independence – this means monthly income that comes in whether I am working or not exceeds my operating expenses plus reserves. Income whether I am working or not is called residual income and I have built a gradient scale for this residual income near term target that then increases from that point. My strategy to achieve that goal is to develop businesses that I am passionate about and that bring the most value to others considering my skill set. The following are the components of this strategy:

Real Estate Investment:

My focus is on acquiring distressed properties, renovating them and reselling them. This buy fix and flip model provides a desirable home for a retail buyer and enhances the neighborhood and community.

Real Estate investment that yields positive residual cash flow: I am using my affiliation with the investment and entrepreneur divisions of The Strongbrook Group to achieve this objective.

Health and Wellness:

The following are two companies I am excited about that I am looking to also be a source of residual income. At the very least I a will personally benefit tremendously from the products.

I am in the process of converting all the household and personal use products to totally healthy and environmentally save formulas. The company I have chosen is Melaleuca Their amazing product line is very affordable and they offer incredible incentives to learn about and use the products. Ask me how you can be paid $100 just for watching videos about the company and products.

Personal health and wellness transformation: I have done several of these programs in the past and now I am embarking on another one with the products of a company that uses no processed foods. That is a 10 day program with a 20 days continuity program following. I was offered a $50 gift card to try this program and the company offers a 100% guarantee for 60 days. I am now encouraging others to join me and will gift anyone interested a $50 gift card like I received. Click Here for details.

One of my favorite product line is healthy coffee and tea by Organo Gold. I enjoy coffee and tea and once I understood the powerful benefits of the Chinese herb Ganoderma Lucidem I changed from the brand I had been drinking for many years and now only use Organo Gold. Click Here for more information.

Personal Development is a high priority for me. As member of Strongbrook’s Mentoring Network, I already see tremendous resources being loaded into their vault .

I am using Send Out Cards for thank you cards, appreciation cards and of course holiday and special event cards I absolutely love Send Out Cards. I create my own using pictures I file when I see one I like or at times pictures I take myself along with a personalized message for the recipient.

I will continue to offer my professional services as a business development and real estate investment coach. The most economical way to benefit from my experience that includes successfully coaching hundreds of companies and entrepreneurs is to join one of more of the companies I am in that I have listed here.

I am continually looking at ways to improve the marketing and implementation systems related to my strategy. I am being advised my a major internet and direct marketing expert on how to jump start the business building components of my strategy. One of the five laws in The Go-Giver book is The Law of Compensation. Very simply the more people you serve the larger your income. Systems are needed to serve large numbers of people.

In conclusion for now – I have a financial independence plan that I am working. I am strongly advising you to have your own plan based on your passions then work the plan in order to realize your goals.

The Go- Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann – A Very Valuable Book

The Go-Giver

Last year I released the book Buiilding Business Profits Fast   The intent of this book is to provide a blueprint for well building business profits fast  It does that and now I am recommending that you get The Go-Giver book by Bob Burg and John David Mann and be sure to read, study and have a number of copies of one sheet printed with The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success you will learn from the book.

I really love the writing style of using a story to deliver very valuable lessons. I think Og Mandino was the first author I read using this approach. Others include Robin Sharma and most recently until last night Kris Krohn with his book Conscious Creator The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann arrived at my home yesterday and I began studying it last night. It  Is short and very powerful. I would love to give you the laws it teaches but listing them for you would not be fair to the authors. Get the boo! Note: It is not a game changer because only you can change your game. This will guide you. What came to me this morning is how powerful the message is in this book when used on conjunction with the Six  laws of conscious creating the book by Kris Krohn Kris tells me there are actually 7 and I will discover the 7th when I take the Conscious Creator Live program. That along with an rapidly expanding vault of information is the foundation of The Conscious Creating Mentoring Network – a division of The Strongbrook Group.

If you go to Amazon.com and bring up the book The Go-Getter you will have the opportunity to read the first chapter for no charge. Go ahead and do that buy while you are there buy the book. You will have no regrets.

Here is one example of a principle I knew but was delivered to me in the book in a way that I am likely not to forget: The Law of Compensation “Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.” You want  more income. Serve more people. Look a popular movie starts, singers, high income network marketers – all serve a large number of people.  That is one of five laws in the book and there is a great story surrounding each one which makes them easy to remember.

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.
