As an online entrepreneur/trainer, it’s vastly important to forecast and look for new opportunities. Now that I have two markets where I’ve attracted hot-prospect customers (students/clients who are very adamant about getting a high-score on their test), those are new areas of opportunities.
If anyone is in sales, it’s also important to forecast and look for referrals for new opportunities, which I discuss along with another ‘played audio’ within this particular podcast.

BOOM! General English is finished! Business English is HERE! We have finally finished general English and now we’re moving into five seasons (which will probably total 2-3 years) worth of Business English, English for Specific Purposes (such as marketing, HR, supply chain and management, professional development, interviews, corporate finance, investment)…and much more. I know, some of you are probably saying “well, I’m not in business because of my age and what I do)….but to be honest, you’re going to get more out of these seasons than you did with general English because this will be more relatable! Tune into what’s in store for this upcoming season!
To be honest with you, I know that the stats are only a fraction of my unbelievable influence. After getting a number of emails, messages and people linking up with me on Instagram, I’ve realized now that I’m inspiring others to find their voice, passion, and core genius. This is the next segment of this book.
“Once you’ve found your own voice, the choice to expand your influence, to increase your contribution, is the choice to inspire others to find their voice. Inspire (from the Latin inspirare) means to breathe life into another. As we recognize, respect and create ways for others to give voice to all four parts of their nature—physically, mentally, emotionally/socially and spiritually—latent human genius, creativity, passion, talent and motivation are unleashed. It will be those organizations that reach a critical mass of people and teams expressing their full voice that will achieve next-level breakthrough in productivity, innovation and leadership in the marketplace and society.”Excerpt From: Stephen R. Covey. “The 8th Habit.” Apple Books.
We’ve got a LONG PODCAST today! DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS, PEOPLE! I was talking to a teacher from Swaziland yesterday and she made a very important point when we were giving our stories. I told her, “there was nothing else left for me in that area of life but I kept giving myself false hope due to complacency.”
She said, “that was the turning point. You needed to take that massive leap to up-level yourself because you had finished the last chapter long ago.”
Right now some of you are literally working at jobs that you finished years ago.
That’s the truth.
Now, I will admit that there are people I have actually sought out because they had money. But I was not after their money; I was seeking their knowledge. In some cases, these people who had money have become dear friends. I’ve noticed that my friends with money talk about money. They don’t do it to brag. They’re interested in the subject. So I learn from them, and they learn from me. My friends who are in dire financial straits do not like talking about money, business, or investing. They often think it rude or unintellectual. So I also learn from my friends who struggle financially. I find out what not to do.Rich Dad Poor Dad
Some people are just so ignorant.
My intuition nudged at me a few months ago about a guy who made a ridiculous comment through a text message. So, I blocked him, but after going to a business where we have mutual business partners, he was there. I decided to unblock him and give him a chance — but after I caught him in a couple of lies and he tried throwing me under the bus by throwing a long-term business partnership in flames….I backed off.
Then there was an ignorant comment such as, “oh, I guess it didn’t feel good making less than ________ baht this month.”
First, never talk about a black man’s money.
Two, why would you even make a jaw-dropping, head-scratching ridiculous remark like that?
Three, Hold this BLOCK.
In this podcast, I talk about NEVER IGNORING THE INTUITION. If someone makes a comment straight off the back and something tells you “I don’t like this person,” that voice is your intuition and you should listen to it.
Business English podcast is back! And it’s back with a BANG!
I know, some of you are saying “retirement?! I’m trying to survive!” However, when your fight-or-flight system is engaged, your perception of life could also be foggy. This could be dangerous because you don’t have the end in mind/keeping your eye on the prize. When the dust is settled, dozens of countries will be trillions in debt; Disney has furloughed tens of thousands of employees; airlines have collapsed; and it continues to get worse.
People are saying “life will never be the same anymore!” Yeah, maybe it’s time for you to change your game. Perhaps it’s time for you to stop working for someone and begin working for yourself. We’re living in interesting times now with lots of downtime and time to also develop skills. So, it’s time to start thinking things through.
In the business english premium podcast, which is available down below in the link ($10 dollars a month or $100 dollars a year) you’re going to hear me discuss about retirement planning, emails from people who are looking into investment advisors, and also be able to work in potential groups and discuss different retirement products for a specific individual. And, after all that is finished, a listening!
Don’t miss out! My business English podcast is FIRE!
When I decided to exit the Rat Race, it was simply a questionRich Dad Poor Dad
of “How can I afford to never work again?” And my mind began to kick out answers and solutions. The hardest part was fighting my real parents’ dogma: “We can’t afford that.” “Stop thinking only about yourself.” “Why don’t you think about others?” and other similar sentiments designed to instill guilt to suppress my “greed.”
Too much greed, however, as anything in excess can be, is not good. But just remember what Michael Douglas said in the movie Wall Street: “Greed is good.” Rich dad said it differently: “Guilt is worse than greed, for guilt robs the body of its soul.” I think Eleanor Roosevelt said it best: “Do what you feel in your heart to be right—for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.”
Our lives are a reflection of our habits more than our education. After seeing the movie Conan the Barbarian, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, a friend said, “I’d love to have a body like Schwarzenegger.” Most of the guys nodded in agreement.
“I even heard he was really puny and skinny at one time,” another friend added.
“Yeah, I heard that too,” another one said. “I heard he has a habit of working out almost every day in the gym.”
“Yeah, I’ll bet he has to.”
“Nah,” said the group cynic. “I’ll bet he was born that way. Besides, let’s stop talking about Arnold and get some beers.”
This is an example of habits controlling behavior. I remember asking my rich dad about the habits of the rich. Instead of answering me outright, he wanted me to learn through example, as usual.
“When does your dad pay his bills?” rich dad asked. “The first of the month,” I said.
“Does he have anything left over?” he asked.
“Very little,” I said.
“That’s the main reason he struggles,” said rich dad. “He has
bad habits. Your dad pays everyone else first. He pays himself last, but only if he has anything left over.”
“Which he usually doesn’t,” I said. “But he has to pay his bills, doesn’t he? You’re saying he shouldn’t pay his bills?”
My point is that it’s those doubts and cynicism that keep most people poor and playing it safe. The real world is simply waiting for you to get rich. Only a person’s doubts keep them poor. As I said, getting out of the Rat Race is technically easy. It doesn’t take much education, but those doubts are cripplers for most people.
“Cynics never win,” said rich dad. “Unchecked doubt and fear creates a cynic.” “Cynics criticize, and winners analyze” was another of his favorite sayings. Rich dad explained that criticism blinded while analysis opened eyes. Analysis allowed winners to see that critics were blind, and to see opportunities that everyone else missed. And finding what people miss is key to any success.Rich Dad Poor Dad
This is a story of my life. Am I playing it safe by staying here in Thailand for 7 years? Full story in podcast down below.
Real estate is a powerful investment tool for anyone seeking
financial independence or freedom. It is a unique investment tool.
Yet every time I mention real estate as a vehicle, I often hear, “I don’t want to fix toilets.” That’s what Peter Lynch calls noise. That’s what
my rich dad would say is the cynic talking, someone who criticizes and does not analyze, someone who lets their doubts and fears close their mind instead of open their eyes.
So when someone says, “I don’t want to fix toilets,” I want to fire back, “What makes you think I want to?” They’re saying a toilet is more important than what they want. I talk about freedom from the Rat Race, and they focus on toilets. That is the thought pattern that keeps most people poor. They criticize instead of analyze.
“I-don’t-wants hold the key to your success,” rich dad would say. Because I, too, do not want to fix toilets, I shop hard for a property manager who does fix toilets. And by finding a great property manager who runs houses or apartments, well, my cash flow goes up. But, more importantly, a great property manager allows me to buy a lot more real estate since I don’t have to fix toilets. A great property manager is key to success in real estate. Finding a good manager is more important to me than the real estate. A great property manager often hears of great deals before real estate agents do, which makes them even more valuable.
