Is entrepreneurship easy?

Nope. Sorry. But that bubble needed to be burst. Sometimes it just takes hard work and will drain you of every last bit of energy you have. But when you make it, you will start reaping the rewards. People you know will then get jealous and think they can jump in right to the good parts. Because they don’t understand…

Bad travel companions

I was travelling internationally with some less experienced travelers recently. I knew this going in, so I knew I’d need to be patient and just put up with certain things. As with any group dynamic, different people move at different speeds. It can be frustrating if you aren’t prepared for it. Inexperience shows easily. You see it in the way…

Best Way To Have Rock-Solid Health Insurance

Are you keeping your job just for the insurance? Isn’t that just a trap? Like a snake around your neck keeping you from truly being free. This type of thinking is everywhere and it holds people back. And keeps them stuck. Why not just earn enough and pay for health insurance on your own? Because you are actually paying for…

Does size matter?

Doing it right is what matters. Hitting the right spot is what matters. Getting to the finish line is what matters. So valuing something by size rather than by the actual VALUE of the techniques is a BIG mistake. It isn’t an uncommon mistake, But one you do have to learn to get over. Otherwise you’ll get stuck in the…

The postman always rings twice

Let’s empty out the mailbag… Some great feedback arrived on the Automated Entrepreneur newsletter. JANICE: Hi Tom, I thought your newsletter was just going to be tech training. But it covers so much more. I find I’m loving it all. It shows me not just how to live, but how to live well. And the best part is that your…

World’s most expensive newsletter

My Automated Entrepreneur newsletter is extremely expensive. I am not ashamed of this, nor do I try to hide it. The reality is there are many cheaper and inferior products you can choose from. And if price is the most important thing than you should choose them. But the Automated Entrepreneur newsletter is for people who don’t want to waste…

Where’d you go? You okay?

You haven’t heard from me for a few days. Yup, I just took a few days off. Didn’t write. Didn’t call. I hit a couple museums with my kid… we flew a kite… We got ice cream and drank a bunch of smoothies. Great father/son time together. But not just Quality time, but **Quantity** time too. That’s what’s great about…

Why I’m quitting the real estate business

I’m fed up. I’ve had it. I give up. I just can’t take it anymore. So I’m quitting. Quitting the real estate business. Quitting the education business. And quitting being an entrepreneur. I’m movin’ on. It was nice knowing you all. Nice communicating with you every day. I wish you all the best. But this life just isn’t really for…

When less creates more

When you are in “the zone” sometimes you surprise yourself how fast you can hit your mark. For example, this recently happened with one of my business mentors (yes, I have mentors too – they keep you focused and moving upward!) I had a MAJOR goal set for one of our sessions. But within only 12 minutes we had the…

The case against shiny new objects

Let me tell you a story. When I was a kid, personal computers were starting to get popular. But I never had one. Because my dad always said it wasn’t the right time as a new model was “coming out soon”. But isn’t that always the case with technology? Especially these days, it only takes a few weeks for the…
