By: Dave Dee on: December 24th, 2012 5 Comments

What are your goals for 2013? I’m betting one of them is to make more money. Grant it, I’m not going out on a limb here as I don’t think I’ve ever met an entrepreneur whose goal was to make less money than they did the year before. Of course, this year getting customers, selling at decent profits and holding onto income will present new challenges. Tax increases, regulatory fees and full-time jobs being converted[…]

Stop the B.S…You are in Control

To quote one of my favorite wise philosophers, Billy Clyde Puckett: “Life’s a funny old dog, ain’t she?” What all Renegade Millionaire Entrepreneurs must know and embrace is: “You just can’t foresee and predict the future, whether next week’s or next year’s, so enormous flexibility is required.” People who are too rigid in their ideas about anything are hamstrung in relationship to everything. A year or even a month before Burnett pitched him, it’s safe[…]

The moral of Earl Nightingale’s greener pastures story is, nobody’s business or life is perfect, and the most perfect of another’s situations is rarely as good as it seems from afar. It would be dangerous to trade, even with the person you might envy most, based only on observations from a distance. It’s usually better to work at making your own “house” better and more to your liking than to envy or swap for another.[…]

I don’t like to dawdle and I’m mystified by people who do. There are times I envy them their laissez-faire, relaxed attitude, just sort of meandering along, apparently satisfied with whatever gets done, getting done and whatever doesn’t laying around until tomorrow or next week. It intrigues me that people live like this. I occasionally wonder what it would be like. This is not, as near as I can tell, The Renegade Millionaire Way. The[…]
