Teaching about money in schools

leave a comment »

College-Tuition

Recently a friend of mine posted a new article on Facebook about how in his area the school system has decided to start teaching about money in the local high school. I think this is a great start as most schools don’t educate students about what ends up being one of the most important life skills that they will ever gain.

My challenge is that whenever these money courses are offer they are general taught by financial institutions or people within that system. Those advisors are trained to invite you to save, invest in specific investment instruments and follow their prescribed pattern. Most of the time people who follow this route maintain an average yet secure income.

That is one route to understanding money.

Why I want to know is why don’t they ever invite the entrepreneur mindset to come in to talk about money. This group far surpasses the institutional people in terms of personal worth and and creativity. They also see money in far different ways that the ‘save and sit on it’ crowd.

If you really want to understand the economics of society you need to invite those who are conducting transactions into the conversation. Just sayin’

Most people live life like driving through a drive-thru without ordering at he first window. When they get to the second window they are disappointed when they either get nothing or what the person inside decides what they should have.

Most take what they are given rather than strive of what they want.

If you really want to begin a journey to creating more wealth in your life start by realizing you have the power to reach for what you want and recognizing that you don’t have to accept whatever shows up. Becoming more proactive and seeking for what you want is the most common attribute of the wealthy.

Wealth doesn’t appear by accident. You must seek it, create and nurture it.

The Speaking Business Multiplier – 6 Keys to Becoming a million dollar speaker

leave a comment »

Success in the speaking business is something most professional speakers stove to attain. But the truth is that the personal development or self improvement industry is one of the most competitive fields on the planet. Everything thinks they have powerful advice to share on how to make life better and all want to be rewarded handsomely fro sharing those  insights. While many of these lessons are powerful concepts for positive change very few of the “thought leaders” who share them actually rise to high levels of financial success.

Douglas Vermeeren on the set of Word of Art

I was very fortunate early in my speaking career to find some amazing mentors and as a result I have constructed and followed a system which made me almost immediately financially successful. In my first 6 months as a speaker I earned more than1.6 million dollars US and have had a successful speaking business ever since. Here are a few of the things I see most speakers missing today that make a big difference.

1)Get a mentor – Most speakers are used to sharing advice and not giving it. If you can find a mentor or a coach that understands how to make money in the speaking business and establish yourself as an expert you are much further ahead in this highly competitive business.

2)Develop high level expert content – Content is indeed king. Most of the people populating this business today have very generic and predictable content. You need to be able to solve real problems and take people deeper into your subject of expertise than anyone else.

3)Use a proven business model – Most speaker stop at accepting a fee for a speech or have added a few products or coaching programs or workshops. While those things are all great streams of income they are not the most effective way to monetize your speaking business. (More on this in a future post)

4)Use media and leverage authority – Most speakers remain relatively unknown and hidden in the marketplace. They do not know how to attract media and are too afraid to invest in a publicist or support team.

5)Get on the right stages and build boundaries – Most speakers who are broke will speak anywhere, for any fee and say YES way too much. Recognize that there is a such things as a wrong audience!

6)Build a relationship – One of the big mistakes I see regularly from speakers is that they are too eager to rush an audience into a high priced product or seminar. The audience feels like they are simply a number or a transaction. Focus on providing value first, establishing your credibility as a true solution first and that you are genuinely concerned about the results your audience needs first. If you do these things you will have earned the right to be bold as your audience will want to continue the relationship.

Simplicity Proceeds Success – BAM #14

Keep-it-simple

Simplicity linked to success
By Douglas Vermeeren

At first glance it may seem like the most successful, wealthy and influential business leaders in the world have a lot going on. It’s true that they have hectic and busy schedules. Their days are full and very productive and they don’t waste time. While those things are true one thing is certain and that is that their activities are precise and focused. To create high level success creating simplicity and effectiveness is fundamental. Here are three suggestions from my research of top achievers as to how you can create more simplicity and effectiveness in your activities.

Determine your specific mission
Recently I was at a networking event for entrepreneurs. One individual handed me his business card. On it were listed several unrelated businesses opportunities this individual was engaged in. I could immediately tell that he wasn’t extremely successful in any of them. The old saying, “Jack of all trades, master of none” was apparent. Don’t-Forget-to-Give-People-Your-Business-Card1One of the most important things that I learned in building my own business with the support of incredible mentors was just because you can do a skill doesn’t mean you should. We only have so much time, ability and energy and of we try to do everything we cannot possibly do them all well. I use the analogy in my seminars of having a single glass of water and a remove full of plants. If you try to water everything it will all die. If you select a small group of plants to nurture they will thrive. Most entrepreneurs try to do too many things and therefore nothing really thrives. Pick a specific mission and dedicate yourself there.

 

Go deep enough to know your business and focus on solving specific problems
By going deep into an area of expertise in your business and career you develop yourself as an expert. When you spend more time in that specific area you develop thinking and tools that allow you to solve problems in that area better than anyone else. This is same strategy that turns regular doctors into brain surgeons, average athletes into olympians and scientists into astronauts. If you want to become an expert in your business or career expertise will be required.

 

Your value to others will be in proportion to the problems you are able to solve. If you want to be paid more solve more complex problems. The way more complex problems are solved is to simply spend more time solving problems in that area. Your experience and knowledge in the area will give you what is needed to solve problems in a specific area. It’s that simple.

sam-waltonOne of the impressive things to me as I interviewed the 400 top achievers was to observe how how they were to learn about a specific area directly related to their business. They read, researched and talked with everyone they possible could. Sam Walton founder of Walmart would visit the retail stores of his competition and talk with them about how they were doing things every opportunity he had. He even used to do it on family holidays and in far away countries. It was his thirst to understand the world of retailing that lead him to introduce many of the ideas we take for granted in a Walmart today. It was this same thirst that made him the richest man in America for a time.

Eliminate needless activities and time wasters
You’ve heard it said that time is the most important commodity in the world. It is true yet still most people only pay this concept lip service. Most people take longer with activities than is required to solve them. For example, most people feel that a meeting with someone ought to take an hour. I suspect that this is a remnant of the idea that a class in school was an hour so therefore every other meeting should be an hour too. I’ll never forget on of the top achievers who became a mentor to me divided his day into 15 minute increments. If you wanted a meeting with him it was generally allowed 15 minutes. To stay on track we actually put a timer on the table as you talked with him to keep you both on track. With such time limits imposed you didn’t find yourself talking needlessly about the weather, the local sports team or any other kind of fluffy feel good banter. It was straight to the important matters.

Digital-Timer-Countdown-Timer-TL8016-

Now I’m not saying that we need to eliminate all friendly discussion but average people spend too much time making meaningless conversation and time passes quickly. I recently had a student at one of my events who had a continual problem with meetings running into each other. He was always late and continually falling behind. In addition his meetings with clients were not converting for him. As we talked about the structure of an effective client meeting we found that he was spending way too much time on discussions that did not serve the client. While some of this chit chat may have been polite it did not contribute to his mission.

Simplicity requires setting up boundaries and that means you’ve got to spend some time in preparation to determine what is most valuable to you. When you know what is most important you can start spending your valuable time there.

Leonardo-da-Vinci1

In conclusion Leonardo Di Vinci was credited for having said that “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Getting to simple takes work, the above suggestions are not easy and they are also just the beginning. As you learn to simplify and get focused your results will improve and success will become possible for you.
