    The Danger of Driving Sharp Bargains

    By Apr 22,2019

    Every time I have ever seen someone drive a sharp bargain, it has ended up coming back at the person in some negative way. People who get paid more than they are worth, or who receive more benefit than they provide, always run into problems and have difficulty achieving success. The most successful people in the world are, for the most part, the ones who give more value than they receive. They contribute so much value that people want to do business with them, to buy their products and services over and over again. When I was practicing law, Post...

    Employers Want to Hire You

    By Mar 22,2019

    One of the most important things for you to realize when you are looking for a job and you see a position advertised is this: the employer wants to hire you. If the position is advertised, the employer is actually desperate to hire you. When I say ”desperate,” I mean the employer wants you yesterday, not today. The employer is losing money, or has a need that is really “calling out” when they start advertising jobs. A few years ago, I was running a company that was growing like crazy. We couldn’t hire or bring people...

    The Importance of Discipline

    By Mar 19,2019

    One of the most popular misconceptions in the world is that those who end up being the most successful somehow achieve this success through shortcuts, not through working hard. Each time someone is able to achieve incredible success without a lot of work and with some luck, multiple news stories are generated about it and the person becomes almost legendary for their instant success. Why? Because it is so rare and it gives people an incredible amount of hope. People want to feel they can get a lucky break, suddenly get extremely rich, and never...

    The Importance of Finding and Creating Demand

    By Apr 09,2019

    In 2000, I needed computer programmers in our company more than anything. At the time, however, it was exceedingly difficult to find a good computer programmer. I went through a lot of tough times trying to hire and keep computer programmers. Computer programmers seemed to have their pick of jobs and they would switch employers every few months, as they were offered better and better jobs, more stock options, and other employee perks. One day I hired a programmer and he immediately started working on an important project that I had. He worked for...

    Eliot Spitzer, Your Dark Side and Being Calm

    By Apr 16,2019

    I had a very disturbing experience several months ago and I am almost reluctant to talk about it because it was so disturbing. I am hesitant because I recognize that your natural response might be to assume I am a little aberrated for being in the situation in the first place; however, I am human and must admit that at times I do find myself in situations that are a bit odd. This was one of the stranger situations I have encountered, and it really threw me into a tailspin. For several years a friend of mine, whom I respect Post Footer automatically...

By Apr 10,2019

Several years ago, a friend of mine said something to me that I thought was very interesting. His family had been in the real estate business for over 100 years and owned many properties that my friend, I assumed, could also take over if he really wanted...
