Are you taking the "you" with you when you go?

Preview 1 ...This is a little off spot to my normal Hubs, however, I feel the need to share this with all of you.

Yesterday, I met with a group of young entrepreneurs as part of my ongoing networking business strategies. When the question came up about...what was my company strategy with the crisis of the current economic instability here in America; and the rest of the world. I replied in my normal, sweet and natural way of course. I said. Hmmm!

Who are the experts?

Most of the time, people as the standard goes, are followers. They tend to take a back seat and let the so-called "leaders" try and solve all the problems and find the solutions to the mess at hand. For the average person, they have the tendency to let the so-called "experts" take control of the crisis and hope that they can figure out the solution to get back on track or at least get back to normal or hopefully, not get any worse.

My reply was, the question is...

...are you willing to put your financial future in the hands of the so-called "experts", the ones who got us in this mess in the first place? Absolutely not!

You see, I've been in business for over 40 years...and my partner has been in business for well over 40 years and our philosophy has always been, and remains consistent with the concept that, if it's gonna be …it's up to me!

It's really up to you to step up to the plate and take full responsibility. It's up to you, to take control of your own life. It's up to you, to take control of your own financial future. It's up to you, to take care of you and your families’ destiny. Plain and simple, it's up to you!

You see, when your in business for yourself… have to step out of the box and look at the business at all the different angles. Don't be like the others and let the business run you, which is typical, you run the business.

I believe and I teach the concept, that each and every individual can and must create financial control and financial stability within his or her own niche...within their own chosen arena simply by making the choice to do so ...and sticking with that choice consistently.

In fact, my business partner and I are putting the finishing touches on a new book, you360. And one of the most important concepts in the book is devoted entirely to becoming self-functional as a person …about stepping up to the plate and becoming educated about the concept of how to employ "you" …how to become self-responsible …how to become self determined. How to become self motivated …and ultimately, becoming self-functional as the person you want to become and surround yourself with like-minded people.

You see, in the business world, there are three parts to any business.

They are, the company, the product and the "you" part of the business. With the “you” part being the most important part of the equation. Most people have it backwards...their waiting to see what the company will do for them. President Kennedy said it right when he said, "ask not what your country can do for you"...but rather, "Ask what can you do for your country." Change the “you” part and you'll change your financial future.

Do you feel the need to open a door or step up to the plate?

With that said, if you're uncertain about these uncertain economic times and you feel you need to step up to the plate and make a difference in your door is always open to those who want to step up to the plate and make a difference. Come on in and take a look at my business, . And in the meantime don't forget; always drink plenty of clean, fresh, filtered water with two-four ounces of the "best tasting Aloe Vera" everyday.

And of course...know your supplier.

We welcome you comments!

      Hey gjcody...where have you been? We missed you. Glad to see you back in the circle. Interesting concept about the you part of the most people I'm sure...we never look at it from that point of view. I can see what you're talking about, when it comes to the you part. Thanks!!

      I'll be waiting for more on this topic,if and when, you decide to discuss more.

      Thanks for coming back to the Hub.
