What Do I Need To Do To Feel Better About Myself?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 26, 2021 9:15:00 AM

I learned yesterday that Google has a technology that could give you up to 1000 mbps upload and download speed. I got 21 mbps in my computer the past 20 plus years and I made it okay. Isn't that fast enough? I started thinking how that relates to our life. We always want bigger, faster better and shinier without even knowing how to use the simple things that we got.

It's the same way in business, we think if we just get over there, then we will be happy. If we just get this, then it will be better.

I want to encourage you not to compare yourself all the time. I do it too, I am guilty. I don't have it all figure out. But I know after almost 40 years of business, I can tell you that we need to learn to be content with who God created us to be. There's always somebody that can do it better, got it bigger, can earn more money, got a better book, got a better website, got a faster upload and download speed! There's always somebody! And if you get into that trap, you will be miserable living your life!

What you got to do is say "Hey I am learning to be content but not complacent!" I think that's what we need to do. Learn to be content at where you are right now. Enjoy the things!

Why do you want to speed up, to be faster, get more, get bigger? When are you going to enjoy? Today! When are you going to enjoy those kids? Today! When are you going to enjoy your spouse's company? Today! It's always later, it's always I will be happy when, with a little more money, with a little more time. Guys, you have to enjoy the day! You need to stop comparing yourself to others! You are enough! What you have today is enough for today. Take your time! Go out! Find your own Station Camp Greenway to hang out on, to meditate, to listen, to praise and worship! Whatever it is, enjoy it!

Stop thinking you got to do it like that guy! Got to be bigger, better, always trying to strive to get just a little more but you fail to see the beautiful sunshine, the good things around you.

I want you to learn to enjoy your life, today! Strive to do things better but learn not to compare yourself to other people. I have to remind myself of that daily. I promise you, if you do that, you will enjoy today much better. Stop wishing for I will be happy when and then. Okay? Listen, enjoy today. Strive to do better but not compare!

10 Tips On How To Create A Great Partnership

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 22, 2021 9:00:00 AM

10 Tips On How To Create A Great Partnership.


I have had about a dozen partnership over the years of me doing business. Don't let people stop your dreams when they tell you that partnerships don't work. That's not true! If they are carefully planned and structured. There has to be an operating agreement!


Here are some tips and things you need to consider so you can create a great partnership.


1. What is the business evaluation formula if we decide to sell? Deposit/length of time/interest rate/etc ( This should be a price that dissuades the partner to sell, not rewards him)


2. What if one partner develops a competing product? Does this negate the partnership? I suggest a length of time for a no non compete.


Who owns the product and platform if you dissolve? What happens if one partner dies?


3. Do I have first right of refusal if the other partner wants out? Will the same evaluation formula be used? Historically, you are penalized when leaving prematurely. This always encourages the partnership to remain in place. It keeps each partner from plotting an early exit. Keeps everyone honest.


4. If a cash influx is needed from the partners are you agreeing to bring your % equal to your ownership %? How much time is allotted for your contribution? What is the plan if the partner says I don’t have or do not want to contribute additional capital?


5. How will the profits/proceeds be distributed? This is a big concern. I suggest a % be distributed and a % be reinvested back into the business. Don’t establish a dollar amount, it always changes as the business grows.


6. When will profits be distributed? Monthly/Quarterly/Annually?
Your needs will always be different. A formula for distribution of profits needs to be in place regardless of your needs. Never distribute based on needs of the partner, this will cause hardship and confusion. Distribute on a schedule.


7. What is the job role/responsibilities, of each partner? Write them out.


8. What is the process if the partner falls on hard times and wants to sell? Non elected, forced ( Bankruptcy, divorce, health, etc..) Formula for evaluation/terms/first right?


9. Is there a dispute clause if you reach an impasse? Or, majority owner holds the red button? This could be a phased approach. 1. Owners decide 2. Trusted advisors decide ( predetermined) 3. Arbitration


Where will the partnership be incorporated?


10. There should be a vision/mission/core values.
You cover these big topics and your future life will be much better, I promise.

Agonizing Regrets Or Awesome Memories, It's Your Choice

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 19, 2021 9:15:00 AM

During my quiet time this morning, I remember my post two years ago about "The Empty Chair" and it made me sad. In my den, there are two recliners, one for me and one for Robin. This is where we hang out and do life together. But one day, one of those recliners will be empty, one of us will be gone. I know that's pretty sad. The truth is, we're going to have horrific regrets or unbelievable memories, one or the other. It doesn't just apply to marriage but to every facet of life, every person we encounter.

One of our mastermind guys is dealing with bitterness. He can't let it go. Believe me I know exactly what it is. A guy did me very wrong that I wanted to shoot to him. I hated that guy. I didn't want anything to do with him. But six months ago, I went to him and I hugged him. And I told him I love you and I am sorry. I had to let it go because I was the only one being held captive, I was the only one being harmed. I was cheating my family because I was disallowing Robin to live the kind of life because I got bitterness harbored in me.

Guys, some of you, today, you want to hug somebody and tell them you love them and you're sorry. If you can't do that, confess it to somebody else and let it go. It squelches everything in you. We only got one life. We don't get a do over. Get rid of that stuff. You say, they don't deserve it! Well, it's called grace. It's things that people don't deserve but are given to them.

Listen, when you quit demanding justice you will know you have forgiven somebody. When you get bitterness out of your life, you will have a joy that I can't even begin what could transpire. It will change your life. Today, let it go! Share this message to your family as some of them needs to hear it.

Small Minds Talk About People, Great Minds Discuss Ideas

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 10, 2021 9:00:00 AM

I heard the saying years ago that small minds talk about people and great minds talk about ideas. It is very true! We need to stop talking negative and talk about people. Quit blowing our own whistle, boasting or bragging. We need to start talking about ideas, talking about sharing and helping. A mindset of something like, "How can I help you? What can I do to take you to the next level? What can I do to introduce you to the right person?". Be a part of the solution not part of the problem.

I'm Stuck And I Don't Know What To Do.

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 1, 2021 9:00:00 AM

So, what do you do when you're stuck? Get people around you, ask plenty of questions, set your pride and ego aside, and go out there and live the life that you've wanted to live. So, if you're stuck today get those people around you. Change that mindset and be willing to not compare yourself to other people.
