Learn the Secret to Unleash Real Prosperity — “The Power of 50”

“I’m exhausted,” my new client Cheryl said.

“I hear you,” I replied, “Based on what you do for your business, it’s no wonder.”

Cheryl, like many of us who own a business, is working seven days a week. She wonders will she ever be able to have more personal time?

One of my mentors gave me the real solution. He said, “Ideally, you need to shift from concentrating 98% of your attention on just current cash flow.”

He was talking about an important point. Many entrepreneurs are so caught up with working IN their business that they are not working ON their business. When this happens you don’t have a business, “you just bought yourself a job.” By this I mean, you have situation in which you only trade your time for money.

The Solution is:

  1. Build your business so you don’t always have to be there.
  2. Build real business assets.

Here’s an example.

As an Executive Coach – Spoken Word Strategist, I need to be right there with my client. In this manner, I’m in the business of helping people transform their lives!

Still, every week, I schedule time for:

  1. I’m writing — toward my next books (I don’t have to be there as the books sell in 15 countries)
  2. Work on my franchise Jack AngelSword.

For example, my 29th book Droids to Magic: Fantastic Tales of Science Fiction and Wonder just debuted on Amazon.com. (See the book when you CLICK HERE )

Droids to Magic features characters from two of my franchises: Jack AngelSword and Madison Storm. These franchises will ultimately include graphic novels, feature films and action figures!

The Power of Exceptional Focus

Do you spend time each week, actually building your business? Or are you—what I called myself years ago—“a little fire truck putting out fires?”

Improve your life. How? Use what I call the “Power of 50.” The ideal ratio of working on current cash flow and working on building your business is 50%-50%. Or what I call the Power of 50.

It’s true that your percentages of working on current cash flow and working on future cash flow will vary week to week.

Still, it helps to keep that idea of 50%-50% in mind.

Ultimately, I want my franchises (Jack AngelSword, Madison Storm, TimePulse, Crystal Pegasus) to serve so many people that Disney wants to buy my company near the end of my lifespan. I want my work to continue to inspire and entertain people beyond my lifespan.

What do you really want to contribute?

And what are you doing so that you don’t have to work so many long hours as your life goes along?

Remember:

  1. Build your business so you don’t always have to be there.
  2. Build real business assets.

Warmly,

Tom

    So true!! It’s hard to remember to take time for yourself when you’re devoted to trying to make the $$. If there’s only one thing I’ve learned in setting up my photography business is you absolutely MUST take time away from work. Otherwise, at some point, your work will diminish in value and start looking like crap. Let your brain recharge. I make a note not to answer work emails after a certain time, and I don’t answer the phone before a certain time in the morning. Just because I don’t have a physical office, doesn’t mean I don’t work all the time. In fact, I think I’m way more tempted to constantly be working because my home IS my office. AND my work includes not only marketing and selling but also the photography and editing itself. Take the time you need for yourself so your business can also prosper.

      I agree: “Let your brain recharge.”
      I find that there are times I must rise from the chair and stretch, do some Tai Chi moves
      and then return with a refreshed brain and perspective.

      many blessings,
      Tom
