Passive Income is supposed to be just that PASSIVE. That means that it does not occupy much of your time once it is set up and running. Can you believe that as I am here snorkelling and finding sea shells I am making money. This is the kind of experience I believe everyone should have. And it’s not that difficult to do if you know the right systems to set up.

Passive income is your ticket to freedom and it is the way that all wealthy people build their fortunes.

Entrepreneur Academy Lesson 3 – Wha tis purpose?

leave a comment »

Entrepreneur Lesson 3 — Are you on purpose and what then heck does that mean?

Too often when we talk about purpose and passion entpreneurs talk about their purpose and their passion. I think that is partially off target. If you want to create entpreneurial success you have got to realize that you business must overlap the passion and purposes of your clients. In fact, that may actually be more important. In other words, being on purpose literally includes having a purpose that others can find valuable.

Recently I was meeting with one of my mentors and peers over lunch. He worth several hundred million dollars (500+) and one of his enterprises is that he owns a public storgage facility. When I asked him about building a business in area that he is passionate about he confessed that sometimes purpose and functionality far exceeds passion. And as we talked about the idea of purpose he expressed that so much of his business success is based on serving the purposes of his customers. Now let’s be honest. Public storage is most likely not listed among your most signifcant purposes — so that raises a question as to what is a true purpose that people are willing to pay for?

Obvioulsy ou’ve already heard how you need to solve a problem for your client. The purpose will be attached to a problem. But I think most people are not truly aware of their problems or their purpose.

Can I make a suggestion that was made to me and has been a source of high profit? Too many entpreneurs look for big purpose and dramatic ways to met those desires. As a result they often miss the mark. Start simple. Look at an actually day and what you do in that day. What are the more basic problems that need solving — find that and you will find a valuable purpose that the masses will pay for. The main purpose for most people is simply to have an easier day. Don’t make it complex. Make it practical and straigth forward.

As I have interviewed and research more than 400 of the worlds top achievers that how the majority of them built their wealth.

Entrepreneur Lesson 2 – Not all work is created equal

Entrepreneur Lesson 2 - Not all work is created equal

You’ve heard it a million times - Work Smarter not harder. The problem is most people think they are already working as smartly as they can. You’ve also heard the cry to take MASSIVE ACTION and that those who take action will win today! Partly true. When you put these two concepts together you will see that taking deliberate massive action is actually what you what. I don’t want you tell you to get busy I want you to get productive. There’s a massive difference.

Aside from the from the importance of understanding that not all work is created equal it is essential that you understand there are two kinds of work. 1) Functional work

2)Vital work

I  am indebted to my friend Daniel Priestly who uses these terms.

Functional work can be best described as work that must get done to make your company work. Systems, processes and procedures that gets your product or service into the hands of your customers. Most of the time this work can and should be delegated or outsourced. Many entrepreneurs stay broke because they remain as workers or technicians within their businesses doing this kind of thing. Often its very time consuming and keeps you from the more important work.

Which is the vital work:

Vital work is best described as the life force and the irreplaceable part of your business. You are the leadership behind the company and lead its purpose. You do so with power, purpose and passion. Your work and actions are deliberate and focused on guiding the business to growth, profit and reputation.

While both kinds of this work are essential to business success the best entrepreneurs understand that you need to delegate as much of the functional work as you can effectively do. And your time needs to be spent more in the vital work areas. As you move to higher levels of irreplaceability and creating a better experience for those in your company and those who do business with your company you will see everything expand.

Too many entrepreneurs forget that one of the key definitions of entrepreneur is to be a visionary. You can create a lead a vision if you are lost in too many functional tasks.

Are you waiting for perfection? Personal Power Mastery Minute by Douglas Vermeeren

Douglas Vermeeren Personal Power MAstery 194

Too often people in life and business wait for everything to be just right before they get started. As a result they do nothing. You can’t wait for perfection. You must start with what you have and start where you are. You can always make adjustments once you have momentum. Even the most successful platforms in the world today are constantly making adjustments and improvements. (Think of how often your computer asks you to update for an example.) Don’t wait until you have things perfect, get started with something that is functional. #douglasvermeeren #personalpowermastery #PPM #entrepreneuracademy #entreprenurs #businessleaders #entrepreneurmindset

How to get to high levels of success – Personal Power Mastery minute by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

High levels of success require the support of a team. But a team requires the vision of a committed and dedicated leader. The idea that a solopreneur can create massive success by themselves is incorrect. It has never happened on a major scale. In order to reach higher, further and do it faster you will need the expertise, effort and insights of others. You can’t possibly do it alone. So the question is how will you find and inspire those people to get behind your vision? The answer get committed to one. #douglasvermeeren #personalpowermastery #ppm #success #enterpreneurship #commitment #goalsetting

Why do most entrepreneurs fail? Personal Power Mastery minute – Douglas Vermeeren

Most people can come up with great ideas and are extremely creative. I am one of those people and I see others like me everywhere I go. Until I learned that the rewards are in being bold, taking action and then finishing the job (or hiring others to help you finish the job) you will never create massive success. What can you do today to start, keep going and finish at a level of competence? That’s where the real rewards are!!! #personalpowermastery #douglasvermeeren #ppmDouglas Vermeeren Personal Power Mastery 177

Waking up just 30 minutes earlier gives you an edge – Personal Power Mastery minute

leave a comment »

Douglas Vermeeren - Personal Power MAstery 158As I studied the daily patterns of the most successful people in the world I wasn’t surprised to find this one. Are you getting started early in the day or do you like to sleep in as long as possible? Or maybe you just like a few extra minutes…Maybe its time for a shift? #personalpowermastery #PPM #douglasvermeeren #EARLYSTART

How you start the day often determines the kind of day you will have. Too often average people look for how they can hold back and relax. They assume that a few extra minutes in bed will make their day more relaxed and less stress. The opposite is actually true. By holding back and staying in bed a little longer you actually are creating more stress as it now becomes necessary to spend the day catching up.

You’ll find even waking up an extra 30 minutes earlier will give you the advantage of sorting out your day and getting things off on the right foot. Start in control and you’ll find you stay in control.

30 minutes may not seem like much but in the overall scheme of things it is often just enough to allow you to take control of your morning rather than have you respond and rush to take care of everything that you need to do.

There’s an old saying that successful people do that which is hard first, so they can do that which is difficult later. Broke and broken people take the easy route first and in the end get stuck with everything that is hard.

Make a choice now that you get the days tougher things behind you first. And for some the toughest is simply to roll out of bed and get started.

One final observation: Momentum is a key factor to getting out of bed. Like everyone else I know it can be hard to wake up. (Especially when I’m teaching a seminar in a location that has a different time zone than my own. My UK seminars start at 9am their time – 2 am my time. That means my day often starts at midnight when I am over there. It’s not always easy to get out of bed at that hour. Especially when you throw in the airplanes trips and the rest.) However the one thing I have learned is that the key is momentum. Create it before you feel like. Get moving and you will start moving.

When you get started early you’ll find that you will have plenty of time for rest later. And there is a peace that comes from knowing that the hard stuff is behind you.

Wishing you success,

Doug
