All We Need is Love

giving others hope and encouragement
All We Need is Love

People are not looking for more systems and processes. They’re looking for hope, encouragement, love, respect and transformation.  If you’re already providing those you are likely in a position to prosper financially as well.  I’ll be sharing some of what I’ve done and how you can step right into the path that fits you best.

Questions we address on this week’s Podcast:

  1. My husband was laid off in the oil downturn and after two years of “getting by”, he is back out in the oil field. He is conflicted though.
  2. I have a business idea of a mobile RV washing and cleaning business. Any thoughts on a business like this?
  3. What questions do you ask when you get to talk to successful people at this stage in their life?
  4. Dan, please help me help your listeners who are salespeople that cold call businesses.
  5. Would I be crazy to leave an unfulfilling job making 5 figures after 25 years to work for a humanitarian organization that serves those in need in various countries?
  6. I feel like my brain and heart are drowning.
  7. I would love to know what you believe are the top three things a person can do to live the best life possible for them?

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”   — attributed to Mark Twain — Tweet This

 3 Key Points:

  1. There are a lot of opportunities out there that can offer you more than you could imagine – you just have to be open to those possibilities.
  2. Don’t opt to make yourself or your lifestyle suffer at the expense of others – you can’t give from an empty cup.
  3. Read, take successful people’s advice, and try to make the truths you learn your own.
