Why do so many people spend and waste their money? Even those who have won the lottery?

The answer to that question is the same as why most people live from paycheck to paycheck and don't even have 4 weeks of an emergency fund put aside.

Most people have a poverty mindset. And there's a difference between a rich vs poverty mindset. 

The poverty mindset could be what's holding you back from becoming rich.

So which one do ...

You can use your business at the core of your wealth-building strategy, but, there’s an art to developing real wealth outside the day-to-day operations of your business.

The risk of relying solely on your business, and not investing outside of your business to generate your wealth is that should something happen to your business, or should it become impacted by a black-swan event like a pandemic, for example, then you’re potentially...

In last week’s podcast, I interviewed Andrew Henderson from The Nomad Capitalist.  At the end of the interview, Andrew and I got to speak about business in general, and some of the challenges of growing a business.

We discussed managing bureaucracy, managing people, creating a vision, The Peter Principle, building and managing a team of people, and conducting one on one meetings.  The snippet of conversation I extracted is short, bu...

I’m a proud Canadian. I enjoy living in the country and all that it has to offer including the education system, the infrastructure, the healthcare (more or less), and most importantly, my freedom. Freedom of speech, of association, and my right to vote.

I’m now in the later stages of my career though, so the thought of leaving Canada isn’t really an option for me, but, if I were a younger entrepreneur considering where I want to li...

In order for you, the entrepreneur, to expand your business, you need to get comfortable with taking risks, but, taking risks isn’t about making ad hoc decisions, it’s about educating yourself, mitigating the downside, making a decision to proceed or not, and then, executing as flawlessly as possible.

Taking risks is at the heart of building a thriving business, and in creating wealth. 

These risks taken in busine...

Every business and every person eventually reaches a ceiling. They grow just so far, and beyond that point, they need to pivot to reach the next level. It’s often difficult to tell when you’ve reached your ceiling. It’s not like there’s a little birdie up there telling you what to do next. Nor do you have your life plan written in a book that you can just flip to the next chapter.

You need to be self-reflective enough to notice when...

One of the things that prove the most challenging for an owner in building a sales team is the difficulty in letting go of sales, and for a good reason. Sales are what keeps the doors open, lights on, bills paid, and profit in your pocket. 

Sales are generally the one thing most business owners do well. You started your business, you know your products and processes, you’re passionate about your product and company, and yo...

The small business startup mistakes I review in this podcast are two of the most common entrepreneurial mistakes that I see most entrepreneurs make when they open their business. And both, are potentially deadly to the small business.

There's a reason that something like 80% of new businesses don't make it past their first five years in business, so, don't be one of those small business owners who make these...

Many people want to climb the wealth ladder and make it to $10 million or more in wealth (the same as a decamillionaire). 

Most people ARE NOT willing to take the risks required in order to get there. You see, the psychological emotion of fear of failure exceeds most people’s motivation to succeed, and consequently, most people don’t take the necessary risks required in order to become truly rich. 

In this podcast, I review...

Why did you start your business?

If you started it because you are passionate about the industry you’re in or that you’re excited by the prospect of running and growing a business, that’s enough of a “why” to keep you going past the early business-year struggles.

If, on the other hand, you decided to start a business because you’re looking to become rich, or for a quick mega million business sale, and that’s your ...
