The Cloak of Obscurity Will Kill You
For the first 30 years of my life, I wore a cloak of obscurity. I didn't put myself out there as much I could have. Yes, I tried to get noticed, but I wasn't doing it right. I kept my story to myself and tried to make it look as if my company was 100X bigger than it really was. This little mistake hid the most important reason why anyone would want to do business with me - I hit behind a name. I didn't stand in front of it. Obscurity killed my business. The fact is, if
Entrepreneurs To Watch...
Have you ever seen the movie The Fountainhead? It's based on the book by Ayn Rand. Truly a classic and I highly recommend you watch it. In the infamous courtroom scene, the main character Howard Roark talks about the single individual’s passionate urge to invent and create, the urge that relentlessly drives humankind forward. He contrasts this almost ardent desire with an embedded human trait that fervently strives to kill innovation and individual glory. Entrepreneurs are r
WE ARE GROWING!!!
DREAMSTARTERS IS GROWING!!!! That is why: Starting in February 2018, we will no longer be offering BESTSELLER STATUS to entrepreneurs who do not use our full marketing service. Full Marketing service means "BOOK LAUNCH, WEBSITE, AND TOTAL STRATEGY". For the past year we have offered the "BESTSELLER CAMPAIGN" as part of an a-la-cart piece so to speak. But, due to our rising demand, we will only be offering that special item to people who go through the whole marketing progra
What are you ATTRACTED to?
Now that I am 33 years old, I know what I am attracted to: Pretty girls, Real Businesses, Old Cars, and True Stories. If you don't know what you are attracted to, then something is really wrong. I'll take that one step further, if you do not openly admit what you are attracted to, how will the universe know how to deliver it to you? If I see any of those, my eyes are drawn to them. It's in my DNA. I can't change that. Not unless I get married, then I will have to change
Motivation for Entrepreneurs
The entrepreneurs who come from nothing have it the hardest. Money and connections are like air and when you don't have a lot of air, then you don't have a lot of time. So, it can be extremely frustrating when you see people who were born with a lot of "air" as you drown on a daily basis. The ultimate question is: HOW DO YOU COMPETE WITH THEM? The answer is simple: You have to play the game differently. You have to outplay, outsmart, and out-position them all. All the strug
Schools Fail Entrepreneurs
Creativity skills are learned, not from sitting in a classroom, but by experiencing and applying creative thinking processes. Maybe that is why school is failing entrepreneurs everyday. I hated school. I never cared about it. Maybe it was because I didn't pay for it myself. Maybe it was because I never valued a "grade". Maybe it was because it simply did not play to my strengths. Whatever it was, school does prepare people to be entrepreneurs. It's obvious. And one ste
Why aren't there more Women Entrepreneurs?
Everyday, when I pop on my facebook, youtube, and instagram, I am seeing mostly men advertise their businesses? Could it be that each network has an algorithm that displays videos and images of only men on my feed? Or is there something more going on here? Truth be told, my business gets approached by 90% men, yet I offer a service that helps both genders. Why is that? Are there really less women entrepreneurs than men? If so, why is that? I believe there could be many diff
Should Entrepreneurs Disclose Their Wealthy Beginnings?
If you inherited money and connections, do you have the right to teach people how to become wealthy? I think this is something that needs to be discussed more openly. I am seeing too many entrepreneurs on facebook and instagram (especially tech-related entrepreneurs), come from a background of wealth, connections, and money - yet they never disclose it. In my opinion, unless that is totally disclosed to the audience, it is fraud. If you are teaching people how to do anything
End of the Year Special (Payment Plan)
If you wanted to get your book done before the end of the year, now is the time! Start 2018 off with a BANG! People usually procrastinate on their book because it's not essential to living such as food, shelter, and clothing. Success is reserved for a very few amount of people in this world. And it is due to their quest for taking action when they spot opportunity. This is an opportunity to help you get it done. To help everyone out who has always wanted a book, I am offeri
Audio Books Are The Future
Do you remember story time in school? It was amazing. The teacher would hand out milk, sit us down in the corner of the room, and read us a story that may change our lives. Wait a second, did that really happen or am I just envisioning a scene from Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger? Anyway, story time allows you to do one thing while learning about something else. That is why I believe audio books are going to be very popular in the years to come. This world is s
