How Do I Provide The Most Valuable Content In The World?

That’s a question I’ve been asking myself, and the answers are still coming.

Their evolving and becoming better answers.

But one of the answers is hard work.  Everyday, day in, day out.  For years and years and years and years.  That way you can build a life for yourself.

And I propose you can do it on the internet.  With your own website and e books.  People who have lists that I subscribe to are doing it already!  I want to get in the game!

So I’ve been working on the first e book I want to publish and put up for sale.  I’ve been on it for the last couple weeks, writing two to five pages a day.  Recently I got in the habit of writing just two, but I’m still writing everyday.  I recently read in a Tony Robbins book “if what you learn leads to knowledge, you become a fool; but if what you learn leads to action, you can become wealthy.  Remember: rewards come in action, not in discussion.”  So I try to take action everyday.

And I try to fill my writing with things that are going to inspire people to take action and improve their lives!  I want people to become wealthy by reading and writing.  Or winning the lottery.  But more with the writing.  I think anyone can do it!  Anyone who can read and write.

Become a multimillionaire in business.

On my business card for this website it does call me an entrepreneur.  That’s what I am.  I thought that maybe I should have it say “writer” instead, but I think entrepreneur is just fine.

Because I’m writing my e book, and I want to sell it, and I think I can do that on this site.  So I could be producing another stream of income from this blog!  And if that income stream becomes large enough, massive enough, I can retire from my job!

Not to mention retire my wife, who has slaved tirelessly for this schizophrenic.  I do my part, and I’m gaining ground, but she still holds our family together.  With her job.

But because I make time, time away from my family, and my job, I can work on my writing.  And I propose anyone with enough drive can work their jobs, take care of their families, and successfully write.

Write valuable things.  Things so valuable they deliver so much value, that it’s better than what any one else is doing.

But I’m not better than anyone else, I just want to deliver more value than anyone else is giving?

So how do you do that?

Not only do you work hard, another answer that has come to me is to work smart.

If you do the right work, work you love, like writing, you can make a life for yourself that you truly love.  And although working your job is a good experience, you can move on to time and money freedom.

And I believe you can do that with your own website, and a couple e books.

But like the voices tell me, I have a long way to go.  Really this blog is only about 2 years old, so it’s going to take me a lot longer to build the kind of thing I want to build.  But I think it’s going to come.  I’ve just got to be consistent in my work ethic, and do it everyday.

I really would like to blog more.  Really do it everyday.  I’ve just been so busy, and with writing 2 pages a day in my book, writing a blog is a lot more work, and I run out of time.  Maybe I’ll get to blogging once a day in the future, I think that would be a good thing.

Because really, the more blog posts, the more traffic.  The more traffic the more comments, the more engagement.  This can be done by anyone who’s willing to put the time into it, to make their life a life of writing.

I’ve personally been writing since my days in school.  I’ve written my grandparents poetry and gave them it on Christmas one year when I was young.  Probably middle school.  Maybe younger.  I used to keep books of poetry and songs as well.  That was more of in my late teens and twenties.  I also spent some of my late twenties writing journals about Network Marketing.  Maybe if I made enough money selling my e books I would feel comfortable joining a network marketing company again.

And it would be different this time because I would be blogging on my own domain name, instead of Empower Networks.

But I sure think I can deliver 100 million dollar information.  I think I could make that much, in my life.  I just haven’t figured out how to do it yet, and there should have been a disclaimer at the top of this post saying that I’m a leading learner, and have not yet produced a result.

So really I have to make this pretty entertaining for you to want to continue to read this.  So I’ve got to do my job, and write with passion, and focus on providing the most valuable content in the world.

So how can you live your dream life?

Use a blog and the law of attraction to bring you what you want in life.

It’s that simple.

It will lead you to where you need to go.

Just write!

That’s what I’ve found.

Because I used to write more about my experience with schizophrenia.  Now my life has lead me to seek improvement and I want to make something of myself.

And have a positive impact on the world.

If a schizophrenic like me can put himself out there, and try to make it writing, then why not YOU?  It can be quite frightening at times, my life.  But I take courage and move forward and try to improve.  And it works!  My life keeps getting better!

And when I talk about my life getting better, I’m also talking about my income getting better.  Because I’m doing great at my job.  Fortunately, my job takes people and gives them more than they expect, and I’ve read that’s a way to get more customers.  So my boss takes care of his employees, and his customers, and he gets more customers.  It’s a great experience to learn from.  A brick and motar business.

And it makes me think of Tony Robbins again.  He said that action will trump knowledge every time.  And you and I can both take action right now by writing our blogs.  And our e books.  And making videos that are designed to give the audience more value than anyone else is giving.  To really make a name of ourselves in the world.  It’s almost like you should never mind the product and just give your stuff away for free, just so people can have it.

To build an audience.

But maybe, just maybe I should do a little more research.  I’d say my audience is anyone who would like to improve their lives.  And writers, and bloggers, and network marketers, and many other kinds of people.

So I write for them, and I try to keep SEO in mind when I’m thinking of my title.  But other than that I just write.  And try to make it valuable.

And I CAN do it, and so can you.  Even if you’ve only read 100 books, I’d say you still can write one of your own, and take it to market.  It would be better if you read more, but if your like me, you will, because your a lifetime learner.

So how can YOU become the most valuable person in the world?

I say you read, and journal, and keep a blog, and write e books.  It all depends on what you put in it how much money you will make.  But I propose it can be done by both YOU and me.

And that’s really what my book is about that I’m writing.  It will be out soon.  You’ll be able to buy it on this website.  I’m optimistic about you loving to buy it.  I’m very optimistic about how MANY times someone will buy it.

And what it’s about is having you TAKE ACTION and improve your life.  I go over 13 different areas of life, and write about 5 pages on each.  I quote some famous people and write from the heart.  It’s good and it’s bad, and I think you’ll love it all.

But it’s mostly good.

The worst thing about me is my smoking habit.  That’s bad.  But it’s not the worst thing you could do.  The ten commandments don’t say “Thou shalt not smoke”.

But even when i do smoke I still seek to improve.  I guess the world will pay me what I’m worth, and I’ll get what I deserve.

Won’t we all?

I do do a lot of good in this world though.  I give to my family and to the church.  I help out as much as I can.  I try to promote good thoughts, love, and growth.  I try to become a man of value.  I think we could all do these things. And the world would be a better place.  The world is becoming a better place all the time with people working on things that make our lives better.  It’s a fantastic time to be alive!

And we have got to make it in this time.  We have to rise.  We have to become great.  For our families, for our friends, or soon to be friends, for the world.  And we can do it!  We can really make it in this world.  As long as we’re working hard we’re going to be okay.  But as Tim Ferriss says “Don’t kill yourself”…

But I like working, and I want to do more of it.  After I finish this blog post I’m probably going to dive right back into writing my book.  I want to finish it.  But I wanted to write this to you to let you know that I loved you and I was just thinking about you and wanted to be of service to you.  To give you something to do that could help you improve you life.

Because I encourage, highly encourage you to as soon as your finished reading this to go take action and improve your life in some way.  Maybe take a walk, eat something, take a bath, write your e book, write your blog, go to work, play with your family, read a book, whatever you could do that’s going to make your life better go do that.

Or one better.

Get out your journal as soon as your done reading this and write all the ways down that you could provide more value to your audience than anyone else is giving.  Think hard, think smart, write your answers down.  Then take action on one of them.  Get right to work!  Be passionate, and get it done!

You can do it!  Adopt a can do attitude.  Write your blog and become a multimillionaire in business.  Each book you sell you come closer to the dream.  Why not dream big?  Why not go for the goal of selling a million copies of it.

If your book went for 7 dollars you’d make 7 million dollars!  Wouldn’t that be lovely.

May not be for everybody, I’m sure it’s not.  But maybe it’s for you.  I say go for it.  With writing, you can only gain from the experience.  You’ll never lose anything and you could gain the whole world.

As for me, I’m going to get working on making my karma a little better each day, and give more money to the church, and keep writing daily, and keep reading, and keep exercising, and keep eating good, and keep having one glass of wine a day, and I will be writing again to you very soon.  Until then, take care, I do love you for reading.

How Can I Support My Family The Best That I Know How…


It can drive us, it can push us to succeed.  It can unravel us.  It can hold us together.  We can weather the storms with our families and take comfort in their presence.  We love them.  They are the most important people in the world to us.  And we have to work for them so that they have everything they need to be a success.

Family can make us.  If we can adjust to having sex with just one woman for the rest of our lives, we can really do some good in the world.  Just imagine, that when you jerk off, you only jerk off to your wife.  Images of your wife and what she COULD do to you.  For you.  I say that would make for a healthy ride.

Why visualize other women?

In my experience that only leads to nightmares.  Nightmares of asses and roast beef.  So I say stay clean.  Have sex with your wife and when you jerk off think of her.

But this post is about supporting your family the best you know how.  I am a schizophrenic, and I was diagnosed as a result of my inability to function in the workplace.  I thought I had cancer.

As it turns out I do not have cancer, and I hear voices in my head.  Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it bad, but any way it comes, I’ve learned to love it.

And because I’ve had so much trouble in the workplace at one point I was a pretty sorry excuse for a husband and a dad.  I was contributing nothing and taking money from my wife.  I’ve since got my act somewhat together and am now giving my wife money.

But it hadn’t always been that way.

The way I see it, my wife has had it pretty good with me being an influence on her life.  And she took on the burden of having me go on a sales/debt/network marketing binge after I lost my job, not knowing what to do, and she loved me the whole way through.

I didn’t think she was loving me, but she was.

And now it’s time to repay the debt.  It’s time for me to make something of myself.  How do you contribute to your family?  By doing the very best that you can.  You can do it!

And I have been repaying the debt.  I’ve given her 150 a few times, 200 once, and 100.  Not much but it was enough to buy her tires and insurance for the tires, and an alignment, without her having to do anything.

Anything but wait.

She came with me and the wait for them to put the tires on and do the alignment was 3 hours.  They said it was going to be an hour and a half, so it was a long wait.

But we got it done, the tires are on there, and I paid for it.

And I’m going to keep giving her money.

I just got a bonus that after taxes I got 415 dollars, and I could have kept that money to myself, but I told her, celebrated, and gave her 100 dollars.  I put 200 on my credit card.  The rest I saved for her birthday present, and I bought a book.

But really, I’m barely making it through.  The problem is cigarettes, and if I didn’t buy cigarettes I would probably be able to live within my means.  But the credit card is there and I fell to the temptation to spend on it, when I didn’t have the money to back it up.

It was so freeing to spend that money.  And I learned a lot from doing that.  Probably one of the biggest lessons of my life.  Credit should be used to make more money, and you should never just lose money.

For instance, if I bought a list on my credit card, say from Aweber, that would be a good investment in myself, that could return a profit.  I could make money from having a list!  That would be an instance where the credit card would serve you well.

But buying cigarettes and alcohol on credit is when your losing money.  Sure, you may be having a good time, but you gotta ask yourself… is it worth it?

How many hours would I have to work to pay off that debt?

How does that feel?  Still want to do the same thing?

I’ve done it, and let me tell you, it doesn’t feel good.  Nor does it help you support your family.  So really, I guess that’s an example of what NOT to do.

I do think a glass of wine a day is good for you, maybe even two.  And that a cigarette a day isn’t going to hurt you.  You could save money by not buying either, but don’t you want to enjoy yourself a little?

All I know is that me personally, I could really use a break.  Some sort of financial windfall that helped me get out of debt, and into a better place with my family.

I’m supporting my family to some degree, but I definitely want to improve and earn more.  I think that’s going above and beyond doing the best you can for your family.

Work on yourself harder than you do at your job, and you’ll be fine.  That’s what I say.

So you may do what you can for your family with what you’ve been given, but you want more and so what?  What are you going to do about it?

I propose we blog and write ebooks.  Maybe come up with a series of videos we sell.  Get into the information market and provide more value there than anyone else is giving.

If your doing well at your hourly job, be hungry for God’s sake, and want to do more.  More for your family.  Buy them a house and a college education.  Do well for them, get them off to a good start.  The rest is up to them, but they better do good.

But I say that the best we can do is be a great example for our children.  To help lead them up the path of life.  So don’t you want to become more valuable?  Don’t you want to create something that provides more value to the reader than anything they’ve ever read?  Or at least in the league with the best they’ve ever read.

Because of the few, there are many who are good examples.  You just have to become one of those people.  And I propose you can do that by reading good or great books and writing a blog and e books.

It’s simple really.  If you want to support your family in a way that realizes your dreams, you’ve just got to become more valuable.  And the best way I’ve found to become more valuable is to READ.

So that’s what I suggest.  You READ.  And read fast.  Read as much as you can, as fast as you can.  Even if that means taking notes on what you’ve read, and slowing yourself down a little to absorb more.

This may come as common sense, but I think it bears an exclamation point.  Read!  I try to read as much as I can.  I read for 2 hours today.  It’s the weekend so I have more time, but I try to read at least a half hour a day.

And I think the world would be a better place if more people read a half hour a day.  At least that’s what I propose.  Even the average hourly worker.

I think they would move up in the company, and be more valuable, and live better personal lives as a result of them reading just a half hour a day.

That is, of course, as long as they were reading books on personal development and self improvement.

Because, I propose that is what you have to read if you want to become more valuable.  And when you have a family, money is important.  And the more valuable you can become, the more the opportunity for you to increase your income.

So I focus on improvement, and it’s working, even though I’m a schizophrenic.  That’s part of the reason I believe this stuff can be done by anyone anywhere in the world.

Work your hourly job, do the best for your family that you can at the time, write your blog, work on your e books.  Be stable and work towards a better future.  It will take time no doubt, and I almost want to tell you you could do it in 90 days.

But really it takes years, if you haven’t started yet, to make any money at all on the internet.  You have to establish yourself, and create an audience.  That’s about the stage I’m at now, but I’m a leading learner, and I’m reporting on how I’m doing as I go.  I think it could help people improve.

And how I’m doing now is that I’m getting a lot of comments on 2 of my posts, and I’m creating some engagement with the beginnings of my audience.

The comments, a lot are trash, just to be honest.  There are some that approve of what I do and encourage it, there are one or two haters, and there is a lot of spam.  I love it all.  I’m in love with doing this.  With being a part of the internet.  God Bless America and God Bless the World.

But you can only do what’s best for you and your family.  We can’t control when the world is going to end.  We can only seek to improve.  And with reading and writing, I think we are well equipped to do just that.  Improve.

That and a lot of hard work.

But I propose that if your smart you can work now and get paid later, and then you can relax.  Enjoy the profits.  That’s what I say.

I do however live by the principle that one should die with their boots on.  Never stop doing what you do.  Do it to your dying day.  David Bowie died just last year, and he had just made a new album!  He died with his boots on.  I plan to write until I’m dead.  See what comes of it.  See if I make an impression.  I propose that YOU can make an impression.  I propose that YOU can be one of the few who succeeds and makes millions of dollars.  Maybe there’s even a potential billionaire out there reading this right now.  Whatever your goals, just know that I support you in living a better quality of life.  I support you in improving.  I support you in reading and writing.  I believe it’s good for the human race.  For the world.  Just do your best to be the most valuable you can be, and see where it takes you.

Why don’t you see if you can become the most valuable person in the world?

That’s what I propose, and a few of you, I believe will do it.  You WILL BE the most valuable person in the world to a lot of different people.  To many, many, many, many people.  Just self educate, and write your blog, and write your books.  I believe the rest will follow.  The wealth.  Become the most valuable person in the world, and receive the money.  As the most valuable person in the world, you will probably give away most of your fortune to good causes, that is of course, after your family is taken care of.

So just do the best you can for your family now, and strive to do more for them in the future.  That’s the lesson I’ve learned from being in a bad place and doing the wrong things with mine.  Fortunately for you, now that you’ve read this post, you don’t have to take money from your family because you have no motivation to work.  You can skip that part, and build your future, not waste any time, and improve and become more valuable now, instead of wasting your twenties trying to figure it out.

So my advice to you is to go buy your name as a domain and start your first blog post today.  Then build.  Then improve.  Then become more valuable.  Make a career out of it.  Make it on the internet.  You can do it!

The point is now that you’ve read this to go TAKE ACTION and provide a better life for your family.  Sure, do the best that you can, but work to make your best a little better each day.  You can do it!  I believe in you!  Just for God’s sake, do the right thing.  Don’t cheat, and don’t steal.  Do good and have good done to you.

Thanks for reading.

Taking What God Gives You And Making The Best Of It

And today, that bad news is I didn’t do the sales calls.

The good news is I got to work in the store for the same hourly wage I get to sell!  And really it’s easy work.  Anyone could do it.  It’s a low paying, hourly, American job.  You can grow, but it doesn’t come easy.  It takes a lot of hard work, and suiting up and showing up, and even more than that, being more valuable.  But if you get that chance to grow, no matter what pay grade your at, it’s awesome.

It really makes you want to work harder and be a better employee.  For me it makes me want to continue to improve so I can make even more!

But i wanted to come to you today to write this and to let you know that even though the sales calls may be winding down, I’m still advancing in the company and collecting my hours and giving to the community.

I’m doing my work.  I’m doing my good.  I didn’t walk today, and that’s no good because health is number one on my values list.  And I have to get a daily walk in for my health.  I’ll get there.

But God gives me hours and I make the best of them and hopefully after this sales thing is through I still have a job.  My boss was talking like I wasn’t going to be doing any more of it.  But I still got my 8 hours in today!

It was good because I drove the box truck and ate lifesavers instead of smoking.  I did something good for myself.  I bought a pack before the drive was over but I went a good few hours without any.

But I personally am making the best of what I have.  I have a job and I get as many hours as I can.  Though I’m only really getting 30 hours a week.  I would like more hours.  But the time I have off I use creatively and make something of myself.

I’m at work on a new e book called “Take Action And Improve!”. It will probably take me a few months to write.  I think I may charge for this one.  It’s all about improvement in 13 different areas of life.  And inspiring you to take action in those areas.  I’m really excited about it.

But God also gave me a family, which has supported me and given me a line to love that I will never forget.  I know not everybody has somebody and I do thank God for my wife.  She saved me and continues to save my ass everyday.

But I’m pulling through.  I’m working.  I’m starting to pull weight.  I’m starting to make a difference.  I want to do more.  That’s why I’m writing.

And I thank God for writing.  And reading.  But writing.

Because anybody can do it.  If you can read, you can write.  All you need to learn is the English language.  Not that it wouldn’t be cool to know other languages…

Anyone can write.  I myself have a high school education.  I did some work at the community college, but didn’t make it out of there with anything.  Mostly I just played around with my social groups.  It didn’t get me anywhere and I definitely recommend if your in the position to go to school you definitely do it.

But I’m just talking 32 years experience on this earth.  That’s not much, but it’s enough to know how to get a raise at your job.  And how to be valuable.  And how to work.  And how to get along with the voices in your head.

They might say your not going to live through this year.  What do you do?

Do you see yourself going downhill and dying in some accident or from some illness…. or do you ask yourself the question… “How do I improve?”.

Which one would better serve you?

I say thank God for everyday because really it’s up to him how long you’ve lived here, and I can say that as a salesman and as a person, knowingly and unknowingly I’ve done some things to people.  I’ve never killed anyone, I’ll just say that.

I imagine my dreams would be about killing people if I killed people.  But I don’t want to kill people because I’m not a murderer.  In fact I love people and want to help them achieve their dreams.  Financial freedom.  That’s a big one.

I have had dreams about winning the lottery.  Probably four or five of them.  I have done much to program my mind that I am a lottery jackpot winner.  So far, it hasn’t worked out.  Sometimes I still pray to win the jackpot… but I have my work to fall back on if it doesn’t work out.  I say there’s no harm in it.  If you really want to win the jackpot why not pray for it?!

And if you want sales, then pray for sales.  God will give you what you deserve.  I made 4 sales in a month.  A couple of them were pretty big orders too.  All I can say is there is a lot of room for improvement.  At work and at home.  Not to mention on myself..

I really need to commit to reading a half hour a night.  I want to be the leading learner I dream about.  And that means reading.  I work yes, and that’s great experience, but I also need books for  intellectual stimulation.

And if you read that’s great.  Read more, the more you read the better off you’ll be.  That’s what I say.  You can make a fortune with this stuff.  At least that’s what I’m proposing.

I could be wrong, I could make no money at all.

Or I could over the next 8 years master the art of blogging and get readers reading my stuff, and wanting more because I of course do a great job and add more value than anyone else they’ve ever read.  At least that’s what kind of job I would hope to do.  With the blog and with the e books I’ve written and am writing.

You should check out my first published e book here.  It’s called “Success Hourly” and it’s written to help you get a raise at your job.  I would love to hear success stories from people who’ve read it, applied the three step process and had success getting an hourly raise.  That would be just great.  And a blessing.

Because I thank God it’s really all a blessing and you can learn from everything, good and bad.  I wanted to write this for you to let you know you can get an hourly job and it doesn’t matter if your karma’s bad and can’t be a great salesman.  You can still work in the store and drive the box truck!

But all I can say is that you CAN change your ways and BECOME a good person.  You can do good works in this world.  Let’s just hope that you haven’t done so much bad shit that God’s going to cut you down early in life.  All I know is that I know nothing and just thank God for another day.  I figure as a 32 year old that will give me the best chance of more days to come.  The power of gratitude.

So God has given me a good job, one that I’ve grown in, and a wonderful family, and a couple friends.  I am very grateful, especially as a schizophrenic, to have had the support I did.  I love my children and I love my wife.  That’s just a little hat’s off to my family for putting something in me that wasn’t there before.  Something good.

But I just wanted to write something to you to keep this blog healthy and growing, and to give me something to do.  This could be valuable to somebody out there in the world, and I hope that it is.  I hope even more than that.

But I don’t want to waste your time with my dreams.  Now that I’ve told you a little about what I’m thankful for, what are you thankful for?  What makes your heart sing?  Leave a comment and let me know.  Also tell me if you want a book on improvement.  Covering different areas of your life.  And giving you my personal experience in each of the topics.  Would you part with some of your hard earned dollars for a piece of action?  For an e book?

Let me know.  I’d love to hear from you.  If you ask me a question I will definitely reply.  I just recently did that for another commentator.

Peace and Love, and take care of yourself…

The Experience Of Giving 40 Dollars To The Church

I give sometimes.  I didn’t give last pay period.   I got distracted, and didn’t go to church.  But I went today, with 40 dollars, which really isn’t really all that much because it wasn’t even 10% of my check.

But I wanted to give, and I wanted to give big.  So I gave them 40 dollars.  What goes around comes around, I say be proactive.  The church is going to give to poor people who need the help and I will be a blessing to them in the form of my charity.

And that makes me feel good!  I want to give even more!  I have dreams…

But those are for another post.

Or maybe another E book.

You can read my first published e book on this website.  Click on Success Hourly to go there now.

I have many more ebooks planned, and a video series or more.

Pat Flynn of thinks podcasts are the way to go, but I just think video is so powerful.  You can really touch people.

And I want my ebooks and videos to be courses designed to get people to take massive action in the direction of their dreams.  To help them improve their lives.  To help them become more valuable, and to inspire them to take action to become more valuable… that they can do it too!  I think I have a really great idea on my hands, and I also think it’s going to be a slow crawl to get there.  I figure by the time I’m 40 this blog will have a foundation.  I’ll have an email list and several ebooks for sale on my website.  Anyone can do this!  And my intention is to take it and make millions of dollars with it!  And I think anyone can do that!

It just takes hard work.  To work harder than everybody else.  To be smarter, and to live by your values.  To read and keep a journal.  To improve and make yourself more valuable.  Those are the things I’m interested in… that I’m obsessed with.

Tony Robbins creates transformations in peoples lives everyday, and I think I can do the same thing.

If your in sales, your a schizophrenic, you work hourly, you want a raise, your willing to work hard, you are obsessed with improvement… you and I can mastermind together, on how you’re going to become more valuable.

“Better not to be a man of success, better to be a man of value”.  -Albert Einstein

But I gave the church 40 dollars today and they even picked us to bring the gifts up to the priest and to the alter.

My wife’s aunt met us there for church, and there was a guy there, an usher or somebody who asked her if we three would bring the gifts up.

As I was standing there wondering if I was going to miss my opportunity to give because of this, there was a woman standing next to me with a big basket.  I took my 40 dollars out and put it right in there.  I usually give a 20 to the first collection and a 20 to the second collection, but there was no time!  I had to bring the gifts up!

So we took them up.  My wife’s aunt carried the wine, and my wife and I carried the communion.  The priest blessed us after we carried the gifts up.  We went back to our seats.

During communion, while I was kneeling, I prayed a prayer of thanks for another day.  That’s about as far as I got.

But I was happy I gave 40 dollars, it was almost 10% of my income, and a good number to give.  For me at least.  Some of you out there may want to give a lot more than I can afford at this point in my life.  Some of you may give a million dollars to your church.  Maybe one day I’ll be able to give a million dollars to a church of my choice.

All I know is that I’ve got to keep writing, and I know you can do it too.  YOU can read this blog post and then decide to go write one of your own, and who know where that’s going to take you.  It could take you anywhere, and God help you if your schizophrenic.  Your putting your stuff out there and people may want to destroy you.

But you’ve got to keep the faith.  Do the right thing, improve, and be a good example.  That way you can keep karma going in the right direction.  You can do it everyday, with little decisions, every pay period.  And those little changes could add up to big results.

I give and one of my goals is to get out of debt.  Yes I want to make 15 million dollars so I can retire with my family…. but one of my goals is to pay off my 14,500 dollar credit card balance.  And I can do it working steadily at my hourly job, in about 5 years.  And I don’t have to worry about transportation, so my cars are set.  I just want to speed the process up, and I say, if you write a blog, and it’s valuable, you can get paid for it…. you just have to do the thing.  And I want to get out of debt faster.  What’s your story?  Why do you want to make money selling ebooks on your blog… Leave a comment and let me know.

So I have dreams… and how do I get there?  I work.  I become more valuable.  I want like a drowning man wants air to be the most valuable person on the planet.  I know I’m nowhere near where I need to be because really I’ve probably only read 200 books, and I stopped improving there for a while because I wasn’t sure it was doing anything to help me.

But I’m here to say that it does, indeed help.  Leaders are readers.  And writers keep a journal I say.  And a blog.  I say do it!  It can only help and it hardly will cost you anything.

But I did give to the church today, it did make me feel good, and I still won’t tell you your wrong or right whether you decide to do the same thing or not.  Your judgement is between you and God and I’m just trying to get myself together so I can meet my maker in peace.  I hope it’s not for a long time.  I must live for my family.  I must take care of them.  I must keep reading and writing.  I must create the life of my dreams.  And I believe this is how you can do it.  By attracting attention and selling to those people whose attention you have.  And all you need is a few good ebooks, the way I see it.  Maybe a video course.  And anyone can do this, no matter what your education level.  It’s really genius.  I’m talking about getting rich and really being of value.  I really think it can be done.  I also think, like Snoop Dogg does that it’s going to take you 10 years to really master something.  So I’ve got a lot of blogging ahead of me, and so do you if you want to follow suit.  And a lot of ebooks to write.  And a lot of videos to make.  But it can be done!  And we can do it together!

I don’t know, maybe I need something other to sell than ebooks.  I don’t know.  All I know is that I can write ebooks, so why not make them sellable.  I know how to sell things, I can certainly sell my own ebooks.  And I think you could do the same.  So really I do know, ebooks are the way to go for me.  To financial freedom.  And I want to be the example to people that it can be done, with a blog, and some ebooks.  That you can make a success of yourself out there in the world.  And to be of value, and inspire people with my story to take action and improve their own lives, thereby making the world a better place by enhancing everything.

Thanks for reading this post and make sure to leave a comment and let me know how your doing.  I care and would love to hear from you.  Thanks a lot again, I love you, and may God bless you.

The Value Of Earning Another Sale

Yes, I made another sale… It was for 350 dollars.  I delivered it myself, not in my marketing uniform, but in my store polo and apron.  The apron was a little dirty.

But I still had my name badge on, that on the back of it says, “Caution, Magnetic”.  I think the name badge could draw people to me.  The job has already blessed me with meeting some really cool, new people.  I am definitely enjoying the ride.

But I made another sale and I wanted to report that to you, that my job was going well.  Also to be a leading learner and report on my successes.  Because I think you can do it too, even if your schizophrenic.

You can hold down a job, and unexpectedly get promoted.  You can end up with a really good job, and take care of your family the best you can.  If you’re a schizophrenic, you might be married, have kids, and everything.  And it’s nice to rely on your family when your down, but by God we have to get back up again.

And whether you’re schizophrenic or not… whether you may just be a mild case who maybe just needs to stop smoking, you can be a success at your job.  And you can improve.

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”  -Benjamin Franklin

And I’ve been wanting to live by my values.
I sat down the other day and wrote out my top 4 values…Success was number 4.  Growth was number 3, Love was number 2, and health was number 1.
But I want to keep improving and the more sales I make the more valuable I think I become to the company.  So I really want to make a career out of this sales/marketing job and take off with the company.
They just released an app you can get on your phone.  When you sign up you get a free ham sandwich.  They are definitely growing, and they’re helping me to grow too.  I just want to keep the progress going.  And report about it on this blog.
But I was the guy who delivered the 350 dollar order.  Enough pasta salad and potato salad, and sandwiches for 30 people.   I carried it up three flights of stairs to the top of the building.  I was the guy who got the order, but because my phone wasn’t working with the voicemails, I didn’t get their TWO messages, and the woman didn’t know me.  She said “So YOUR Jesse?”  I said yeah, my phone hadn’t been working and I need to switch carriers… It was a lame excuse for something I had no control over.  She did end up giving us a fifty dollar tip though.  That’s a bit more than 10%.  A very nice tip, and one that I am very grateful for.  One that I think all of us at the store are grateful for.  We’re providing an excellent service.  FOOD.  And it’s good food.
But I got back in my car and drove back to the store.  I gave my manager the fifty dollar bill and she was happy we got tipped.  There have been many orders we’re we’ve got nothing.  There we’re some tips but it didn’t seem like there we’re many.
Now with this sales thing, we’re getting tipped more and getting some pretty big orders.  I get paid well to do the job though.  It’s all hourly.  I didn’t get a bonus yet, but I got a 2 dollar pay increase.  That’s more money for Uncle Sam too.  Gotta pay the rent.
But I’m sharing my success because I think it’s of value to know that people, even people with schizophrenia, can make it in a sales job.  That’s why I want to be a leading learner and report on my successes.  So that no matter where you are in your selling development you can find inspiration that there are great circumstances out that that you can get, and really make a career out of it.  And even if your not formally educated, you can learn a lot from being a salesman.
Snoop dogg said in his inspirational Youtube video that stars are born not made.  I don’t know if that’s true or not.  Snoop dogg does have experience though, and has tried to make other people stars too.  I guess it just didn’t work out for him so he quit trying to do it.  He said you can’t make stars out of people.  I don’t know how much of that I agree with.  Snoop has a message of peace and love which I appreciate and all I know is that leaders are readers.  And you won’t know unless you try.  And the harder you try the better off you’ll be.  So go for it, that’s what I say.  Even if your schizophrenic.
So no bonuses yet but I just got paid and I’m working on paying off my credit card, giving money to my wife, and giving a little money to the church.  The rest I have to live off of.  Oh yeah, and I almost forgot the most important part… I saved.
I saved over 10% of my check and put it away.  Saving for retirement.  Because it’s coming.  All I need is 15 million, and I could hit the lottery tonight!
Or this website could really get some traffic, and I could become an E book seller.  The maker of my own information products.  And anyone could do this and become a millionaire, I propose..
Because if your like Pat Flynn of and make 150,000.00  a month off of your website then you’ll have over 15 million in just 15 short years!  That is I propose if you keep growing and improving.  And doing what you do best, which is to inspire others to take massive action in the direction of their dreams, and accomplish them.
And the beauty is no matter where you are, you can start a blog, and get people reading your stuff.  Be a leading learner and publish your successes as you go.  Work in your work life if that’s what you have to do… if your like me the foundation of your success is at your job.  And writing a blog is just working on the dream in my free time.  And isn’t the dream beautiful?
Writing E Books and selling them successfully on your blog.  People wanting more of your stuff.  You continuously improving to spread evolution and new ways of being.  And you’ll get some good feedback and some bad feedback… but I don’t think the bad feedback will be as bad as your thinking it will be.  And arn’t there lessons and good things even from the negative feedback?
I love people even when they say no.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE THE CUSTOMERS, but I still love you even if you won’t talk to me.
I think that’s the way to be, something I picked up from a Tony Robbins book.
But improvement, I think that’s the way to be.  And you can improve on your job, but to paraphrase Jim Rohn, you’ve got to improve more on yourself, than just on your job.
And I’m being bad, because I haven’t read in a day or two.  They say it’s better to skip a meal than to skip a half hour of reading everyday.  I’m trying to live by that, but it’s hard, especially with a family.
But I don’t want to give you excuses, I just want to improve.  I will definitely do some reading this weekend.  And into the next week.
And also try to stop smoking.  I’ll have one glass of wine a day, and try to quit smoking cigarettes.  Get healthier.
That’s just one way I can personally improve, what’s yours?  Leave a comment and let me know.  If you want to take control then tell me what massive action your going to take to improve…  that would really be great.
Let’s grow together,  I so look forward to an email list with you, and to getting my E Books up for sale.  So I can really make a business out of this, and get my dream to work out!  I say you can do it too!  You can work and improve at your job, and you can work and improve on your life, and make so much money you can quit your job, and just live your life.  If that’s even what you want to do!  You may want to keep your job your having so much fun!  And it’s so rewarding!
So here’s to you winning the lottery, getting promoted at your sales job, successfully selling E books on your blog, living a life filled with love of family, and living most important of all… in good health.
I love you, thanks for reading.
