Money and Morality

There’s a topic we believe is important to address prior to enlisting the aid of mentors in this area. In many people’s minds — and in much of our culture today — the very idea of wealth, on at least a “gut” level, has been villainized. In my experience, however, nothing could be further from the truth. Most of the wealthy people I’ve known have been kind, caring, generous people who have worked extremely hard for what they have earned. So, why is wealth villainized?Because of a few bad eggs?…See More

As Good As Our Word: How To Build — or Destroy — a Good Reputation

One of the most valuable assets we possess can’t be measured, counted or displayed. It takes years to build and seconds to destroy, and we depend on it not only in business but in our marriages, friendships and all the other relationships in our lives. Our REPUTATION — the value others determine when we give them our word — shapes how the world sees us and largely determines the many opportunities in front of us. …See More

Reframing Life’s Questions We can have it all if we change “OR” to “AND”

Reframing Life’s Questions

We can have it all if we change “OR” to “AND”

When deciding what we want out of life, and where to put our energy and focus to achieving our goals, my mentors and I have found that we need to avoid a limiting concept called “The Tyranny of the OR.”

This concept, described by…

The myth of the “self-made” man or woman is just that — A MYTH

The myth of the “self-made” man or woman is just that — "A MYTH"



We hold in awe those who started life without the benefit of money or

resources and went on to build empires. It’s almost as if they were destined

to be giants and got there with only their own determination and talents.

When we look closer, though, behind the myth of their “destiny,” we

begin to see the people around them. We see the family…

Hi Chris,  

I just stopped by to say that I am very grateful that you featured, promoted and joined my group:  Understanding Craigslist.  The group is new and there is not much content there yet.  I am sure there will be several people who will join in as soon as discussions begin to come in.  Having you be a part of it will be crucial as you are one of the greatest promoters that I have ever come in contact with.  Your style of communicating is relaxed and down to earth and I feel like I've known you for years when I watch your video progress and events that you cover the dealerELITE.  

 

Please visit often.  I hope to make you proud with the content and helpful dialog that will be engaging our dealerELITE members.  

 

Special thanks to Tom Kain and AutoDealerTarget.

Chris,

I really want to thank you for the meeting last week in Melbourne @ Kelly Ford.

I have paid good money for other seminars not quite as 1 on 1, nor as great as your was.

Thanks
