"I believe leaders need to teach entrepreneurs to be go getters, customer centric and truly independent again. Not just how to complete a resume and W-4 form along with their I-9." ~J Loren Norris
WHERE HAVE ALL THE YOUNG AND HUNGRY ENTREPRENEURS GONE?
WHAT IMPACT IS THAT HAVING ON SOCIETY?
When you hear talks and presentations from the last generation or two it is not uncommon for them to mention their first “job”. In fact many of them talk about how they earned money on their own before they were teenagers. That entrepreneurial spirit seems to be fading. What goes with it?
Here are three things I believe inspire and are motivated by entrepreneurialism which are hard to teach or train any other way.
1. SELF DISCIPLINE The desire to have your own money and the options of how to spend it motivate kids and adults alike. From the old stories of house wives who would sew a few dollars at a time into the hem of a dress so they could run away of the must to the kids who hid money in their shoes so of the school yard bully accosted them for milk money, the still had a stash - a few extra bucks hidden away is always a good thing. People who recognize this reality will go to great lengths to make sure they attain those bucks. Babysitters, newspaper delivery boys, lawn mowers, laundry folders have been a staple of American childhood for decades. All of those require discipline simply show up for the work.
2. CUSTOMER SERVICE FOCUSEarly on the junior self employed realize that sloppy work and rude behavior means less opportunity. Doing what the customer wants done, they way they want it done is critical. Those of us who started very young (I was seven when I started mowing lawns) learned that arguing with the person who holds the purse makes you sweaty and yet still broke.
3. TRUE INDEPENDENCE Freedom is nice. The freedom to come and go as you plead. The freedom to play whenever you want. The freedom to do nothing if you choose. Nice. But it’s hard to enjoy any of those freedoms if you don’t have money or parents willing to give you money to spend frivolously.
I believe leaders need to teach entrepreneurs to be go getters, customer centric and truly independent again. Not just how to complete a resume and W-4 form along with their I-9.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
