I recently hit a plateau in my business and was unsure of what to do to get out of my slump. One of my clients gave me a wonderful piece of advice. He suggested I change gears.

The only way to go faster is to change gears.

The same is true of our business. We run our business in a certain way to grow our business, but eventually we all hit plateaus. It doesnt matter how hard we work, or how much more we do, we just cant seem to get past the plateau. The key is...

I posted a short 3 minute video on my blog with the whole story. Click Here to check it out. I welcome your comments.

To your success!

Huh? ;)

Cruising in business is fine for a little while, especially if we want to enjoy the fruit of our hard earned success, but it's much too easy to become complacent. Before we know it, we're on a downhill spiral that's difficult to overcome. I think it's best to constantly be on the move, looking for ways to expand our business, creating multiple streams of income, enabling us to live our life with power and passion.

Best,

Best of luck,
