THINK LIKE A BOSS
An entrepreneur can be defined by how he or she thinks but don’t
have their own business.
Organizations may have to allow their leaders to challenge
the way things have been done in order to foster an environment that will engage others, drive change, and result in more productivity.
Here are a few nuggets to stimulate positive progression in any organization large or small:
SUPPORT- Entrepreneurs need executive
sponsorship from the top and the sponsorship need the ideas from aspiring
TESTED APPROACH- It’s not enough to say “let’s
think different” it has to be a theory or practice in place that can help in
TRUST-Organizations must give their leadership
team the freedom to take risks and make decisions knowing that with some of the
risks there will also be failed attempts that will result in lessons. This will
also encourage employees to act and think like owners
Everyone that is a MILLIONAIRE is not rich…SAY WHAT?! Now
that I have your undivided attention let me
explain…You can still have a millionaire mentality without being a millionaire…You can still live your life to the fullest
without missing out on life trying to chase money…Understand that it’s all in your net worth…Here’s
an even bigger NEWSFLASH…you can be a millionaire and someone who is not can
have more with less…it’s all in how you manage your money, time and your life…. so don’t wait until you get there…get there in your mind first…”Beloved, I wish above all
things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers” 3
Why strive for more when you don't know how to manage less?
Some of us know what it is to be broke busted and disgusted, to
have just enough, and some have even experienced having more than enough...in abundance until it's overflowing...It's safe to say that most of us would agree that having more than enough is the better of the latter...I have learned the way to fight poverty is not by
winning the lottery or a get rich quick scheme, but it's making a decision every day and
being consistent about working towards your goals to
achieve financial freedom in a systematic, strategic, and diligent manner. With
"faith and patience
you shall inherit the promises" Hebrew 6:12
Another thing they didn’t tell you is that in order to
build wealth you have to increase your income (maybe through various streams)
and reduce your debt…Living from paycheck to paycheck will not do it...Do you have to have those $200 sneakers when you can start
a savings account or purchase some insurance you may need.
You have the keys…you have what it takes…the wisdom is
locked up inside of you...The devil has tried to hide it from you by rearranging your priorities
and infiltrating your mind with fear, doubt, and unbelief. He makes you think
that when something is on sale you have to have it NOW. Another secret he didn’t
tell you is that there will always be good deals…there will always be sales…You need
to stay focus and make sure it's an immediate need when achieving your
One of the most important steps to financial freedom is making
sure your goals and net worth are properly assessed…It may be necessary for you
to meet with a financial advisor/planner of some sort in determining where you
are financially and how to get where you desire to go. Remember it’s a process…so
give yourself time to get there.
So the next time when making financial decisions…you need to
decide do you really need all the channels on cable when you don’t even have adequate
health life or car insurance?

Had an interesting conversation with a friend and we both
had encounters about the success of our business…No we were not gossiping and
no we didn’t call names...She stated “there are wolves roaming
in sheep's clothing preying upon or trying to prey upon those who are excited
and eager when it comes to their new endeavors. I've been shocked at some of
the so called "great ideas" I've been propositioned with. All with
promises of material wealth. Those tricks don't work on me, but on someone less
experienced and more naive, they do. I don't like to see people positioning
themselves as some fast track ticket or key to success, as if the only way
you'll be successful is if you let them lead the way. I don't like when people
take advantage of the talents, passions and innocence of others. They try to
put stars in your eyes and glittery images...ain't always gold, that's for
sure!” Donloyn Gadson
One thing I stand firm on and was reminded of was that God
said..."Erica you are in control of your own growth and success...in every
aspect of your life including financially"...and I immediately felt
empowered instead of vulnerable...he meant when I was ready for it...it’s right
there…”the right people you need to connect with…they will be in your path…and your growth is not in the hands of anyone cause promotion comes from me (Psalms
75:6)…others can only enhance what I have placed in you”...but he wants us to
be in control of it…so it doesn't become out of control #thankyouJesus #feelingempowered
Make sure you move when you get a peace within yourself so
you will not regret it later unfortunately wolves do disguise themselves in
sheep clothing…and when its meant to happen it will…yes you may need mentoring,
coaching, training, and the right kind of help…but nothing will be able to stop
it except you…at the end of the day it’s your vision so be in control of it and
don’t allow the wolves to cause you to shut out who God has sent to partner
with you #whenpowermeetspotential
