"Finally, I had to hit rock bottom. That's when I started taking responsibility and becoming productive with my daily time."
When I first started out as a real full time entrepreneur (no silent investor to speak of), I thought I was the bomb. I was in control of my own destiny. I was doing things on my terms. I was excited beyond belief.
Well, I got so excited that at times I forgot I had to actually work, advertise, market, prospect, and make sales in order to see that money coming into my bank account. There were times I would sleep in late, take trips to the mall, go to a friend's house, have lunch, you name it, I was doing it. But, when the time came for bills, I was getting stressed and depressed because the money wasn't there.
Finally, I had to hit rock bottom. That's when I started taking responsibility and becoming productive with my daily time. I don't think you can even imagine how God started working things out for my good, when He realized I was working on myself and my business. I realized at that point, the issues in my business had more to do with me personally, than with the actual business itself.
So I submit to you today, to take an assessment of where you are and why things are the way they are.
