Or Are You a Moron?

Sometimes in sales we need to sort out those who are truly interested and qualified from those who are just wasting our time. They aren’t necessarily bad people. Perhaps they just don’t know how to say “no” or how to be fully candid. After 40 years in sales, I have developed a method of sorting…

Why Airplanes Fly and Most People Don't

It never ceases to amaze me that airplanes can fly. These big, heavy metal bodies loaded down with lots of people and baggage are able to take off and fly through the sky. Airplanes are able to fly because they are propelled to move forward, and their fast, forward motion, combined with air coming off…

Be Kind to Humankind Week

Next week, Aug. 26 through Aug. 31, is Be Kind to Humankind Week. Most of my blogs are about creating success, creating wealth. But, success and wealth are about much more than money. The website for Be Kind to Humankind Week states that it is an annual celebration of kindness that is recognized globally during…

Do You Have a Mentor?

I started Proforma. I grew Proforma. But the story of Proforma’s success must be shared with many people that mentored me over the years. Do you have a mentor? Do you have anyone who has been over the speed bumps you are going through and the speed bumps that lie ahead of you? Fortunately, I…

Plan. Execute. Evaluate.

In business we must continually plan, execute and evaluate. 1. Plan: Most business folks have some sort of plan. Some have long-range plans. Some have annual plans. Most have at least a “to do” list to help plan their day. 2. Execute: Most business folks also execute. The key to good execution is good planning.…

Time for Your Declaration of Independence

The 4th of July is when we Americans celebrate our independence, our freedom. As you prepare your celebrations, let me encourage you to reflect on these two questions: Are you truly independent? Are you truly free? Most distributors with whom I speak don’t seem very independent. They seem to be bound by all of the…

Delegate to Elevate

If you are seeking to elevate your success and happiness in your life and in your business, I recommend you evaluate the chart below and find more time to do those things you enjoy. We all have things we enjoy doing. Some we do well, and others may require more learning and practice. As seen…

Fran Ford: A Lesson in Leaving a Wealthy Legacy

Most of my articles for “Million Dollar Mindset” are about creating financial wealth. But having just attended the funeral and celebration of life for a good friend of mine, and a good friend to the entire industry, I feel compelled to share my thoughts on the wealth that really matters. It seems to me that…

Are You Having Fun?

Most distributor owners started their own business because they had a dream of making more money and having more fun than working for someone else. However, for many distributor owners, those dreams have turned into nightmares. All the responsibilities of business ownership can be very exhausting, distracting and no fun. Business owners not only have…

It’s Just Lunch

How do you spend your lunchtime? Many distributors and sales reps think lunch is a great time to eat a sandwich at their desk and catch up on their work. In my view, this is an incredibly bad use of the potentially most valuable part of your day. We are all in the relationship business.…

The Insanity of Vanity

We’ve all heard the definition of insanity: Repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. May I ask if this describes your typical day? Repeating the same thing over and over again and getting the same results? I have had the opportunity to speak with thousands of distributors and reps in…

You Can’t Lose Something…

Do you sometimes hesitate to ask for what you want? The truth is we all do. We hesitate to ask for the appointment. We hesitate to ask for the order. We hesitate to ask for referrals. We hesitate out of a fear of “loss.” A fear of hearing “no.” Here’s a bit of wisdom a…

Impossible to Expected: A Lesson From Roger Bannister

Roger Bannister passed away a few weeks ago. His life holds a powerful lesson for all of us. In the early 1950’s it was considered physically and mentally impossible for any human to run a four-minute mile. But in 1954, Roger Bannister became the first person to break the four-minute mile barrier. Within months, another…

Your Failure Can Be the Key to Your Fortune

Failure is a part of success. Sometimes failure can be the key to your fortune. You may have heard the story of how an engineer at 3M was trying to invent a super strong adhesive, but came up with a super weak one instead. That weak adhesive he invented became the secret to 3M Post-it…
