"People forget how fast you did a job - but they remember how well you did it." Howard Newton

I decided to start with a fantastic quote....why? I have to listened to my gut and realized that TBN is all about building relationships and not trying sell anyone anything. This is a critical time in history. We ALL know of the financial crisis that is happening and what may happen (temporarily, of course) to our country. Most important, during any time of a crisis or (problem) there is ALWAYS an opportunity. As Albert Einstein has quoted "In every difficult time is always an opportunity." Which is true NOW! If what you are doing do is not working...change it! If you are fat and happy, well, you are doing something right! Now....on to my mantra and my beliefs...and I promise I will never, ever, sell you anything!

When people talk about being "married to their work" or job; that statement is more fact than fiction. Most people spend the majority of their waking hours working rather than being with their families. That is one of the factors that have led to the self-employment phenomenon which has more people than ever looking for financial and personal freedom. With the ever increasing number of business consolidations, restructuring, outsourcing of jobs and the reduction of company benefits, this is not a good time to be 'just an employee'. So, the choice to go out on our own is the correct decision for most of us.

Everyone knows that a successful marriage takes work. Just like you can't be married part-time, if your goal is to get the most out of your business, you must be willing to put in the appropriate amount of time, effort and attention. You'll get out of this relationship what you put into it. Paying the proper amount of attention to the details in your 'work marriage' will result in many happy anniversaries.....I had one last week....God Bless! Made in Part by the B2B guru Darren Oliver.
