Who really cares about celebrating the President, aren’t they all just corrupt anyhow? 🤷🏼‍♀️🤔

The fact is, it doesn’t matter who the president is, make sure you’re taking care of your business and being the president of your own life. Let’s take today and use it to celebrate YOU, President, CEO of your company!

Like every other holiday it’s turned into a way for businesses to capitalize, drive sales and build their brand.

If not you then who? Like the big brands are you celebrating your business this day in the name of Presidents Day?

Origin of Presidents Day

Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington’s, commander of the Continental Army during the American Revolution and the first president of the United States.

The holiday became popularly known as Presidents Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers.

Oops – Happy V-Day to my side piece

I’m still working through building out this amazing company, Connecting Atlanta, and impacting the lives of our Speakers, Trainers and Business Consultants by helping them to create more revenue through local live events.
Figured I’d share the meaning of V to me!
V is for Victory
Be victorious in all you do. When you wake up in the mornings remind yourself how amazing you are. Even through trials, they are opportunities for us to grow as humans and, hopefully, figure out how to avoid the same learning opportunity in the future.
V is for Variety
Create variety in your income.
Most multi-millionaires have 5 to 6 different income streams. Some ways are a job, side business, dividend investments. Create a goal for three to start with which should be pretty easy to do.
V is for Valentine
Here is some interesting history I found online:
The Dark Origins Of Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance and love and kissy-face fealty. But the origins of this festival of candy and cupids are actually dark, bloody — and a bit muddled.
From Feb. 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain.
The Roman romantics “were drunk. They were naked,” says Noel Lenski, a historian at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Young women would actually line up for the men to hit them, Lenski says. They believed this would make them fertile.

Is that Prospect or Client Qualified to do Business with You?

Ever wonder why some customers are so overly demanding, expect everything, for you to be at their beck and call, however, they refuse to pay your full price and want a deal on everything? That’s a HUGE sign that customer is NOT QUALIFIED to do business with you!

One thing I’ve learned from Marquel Russell is he never apologizes for his prices and he knows that when he delivers what he’s promised if you follow the actions, success will come! He doesn’t argue with people who want a deal it’s simple just come back when you’re ready to play ball!

Stop devaluing yourself and remember that your time and your gifts come at a premium. You’ve spent days, weeks, hours developing those talents, why would you want to steal from yourself?  Think about some ways you’ve stolen from yourself and action what you’re going to do to STOP THAT!

“Fair” is a Fantasy

I’m currently reading this book, Success is Not an Accident, by Tom Newberry and it’s bringing up some interesting thoughts. I remember when I was first starting out in business, my first online business, people would tell me why don’t you learn how to do websites, learn how to do this, why don’t you learn how to do that, as I was trying to figure things out for myself and I remember that most of those individuals that were looking to give me advice on what I should be doing in my own personal business:
1. Did not own a business
2. Never had any desire to own a business, however, they felt like they could provide me with advice on what I needed to do to be successful in business.

As I’ve gone through and developed a couple of businesses now I’ve learned that all of us have different strengths and weaknesses. It is when we focus on building and developing our strengths where we can truly continue to grow and build our life, our relationships, our family and our businesses. Since life definitely is not fair we need to surround ourselves with other individuals who fill in the gap‘s we are missing.
So in this book, Tom Newberry says, “insisting on a level playing field disrupts your attention and distract you from your ultimate objective. Instead, as a high performer, you must deal with the reality of the present situation you need to focus on reaching your goals rather than on the obstacles that stand in your way. This choice leads to accomplishment in progress, and it leads away from aggravation and alienation. Recognize that everyone has disadvantages, handicapped, weaknesses, and various other crosses to bear. A big part of life is learning how to transform your disadvantages into advantages. Well directing your energy toward “making things fair” is often counterproductive, channeling your spiritual, mental, and physical energy toward achieving meaningful goals is a constructive investment of time.
