The Best Thing You Can Do About That 'Venture Fund'

What would you need to do to start building your own ' venture capital' out of the ordinary ways everyone or almost everyone does ?

Remember your old age funds? They could be halved off  in purchasing power by the time they come to greet you! 

And if you think your day job is going to do it - just go out into the streets and greet your fellow stragglers and plodders and whiners.

So how do you get to build this fund ? It all boils down to what you decide to do next in your life.

Every new day is a fresh lease of time for another race day, the olympics of your life . Whether you're going to snuggle up before the fireplace , watch 'em movies or ..or go out and be a wolf for your causes is your present moment decision.

Standing still - you'll only fall off the bicycle or just become floatsam.

The best thing you can do is BEING yourself . What can you teach or show the way to ? What would you burn for ? What makes you tick ? Are you going to work for your life or let life work for you ?

Do What Successful People Have Done 

Go After Your Goals Like A Shark Would!

Sharks can only swim forward.
They don't know the other way. 
They never stop moving .
Some scientists say they are fast moving missiles.

They don't allow themselves to be caught off guard.
They have a honed  tool bag to hunt and kill, from the way they push themselves silently  through water to their legendary senses of smell and hearing and not excepting those glistening walls of teeth.

Now think of your life - how often have you set goals as you swam thru' the seas of life only to have forgotten all of them a few days later ? How often have you allowed goals to get out of sight ?
Have you gone out after your dreams like a shark WOULD ?
It's time to turn shark [ for the good things , i.e.].

Like A Shark Would..

From Local To Global...

Does Your Yellow Pages Or Newspaper Ad .......

 1. pull in hundreds of visitors, many of whom ready buyers, every day ?

 2.’talk’ to , convince them to your product’s quality before they call you? 

 3. grow , shape  customer relationships that you will be needing  to step up the gas on
     loyalty and  repeat orders?

 4. hold the reader’s eyeballs or does it’s prescence fade away in the face of all those
     other ads on the same page ?

 5. get off the beaten trails to help monetize your skills , know how , knowledge and

 6. offer you an avenue to stay in touch with your clients or give them some seasonal
     special, a discount coupon or other value adding tips ?

 7. allow you to seed markets without a physical prescence [ and huge costs] elsewhere ?

 8. enable you to leap from , liberate you from  an old world  business entity into a digital  
     merchantship that’s reshaping commerce?

     It maybe time to own your business  instead of it owning you.

"I was able to reach the global market 24X7, rather than just the local market for my paving company that I was used to reaching in the past. I had left the manual-labor era and had become a digital worker ... a knowledge worker who can reach the globe by using his brain."

The Singlemost Important Quality To Success..

His mother was a domestic.The family lived in almost a cabin without electricity and plumbing just a hundred yards outside of a golf course separated by a fence.Gazing across [the fence] the seventh grader wondered as he watched golfers on the seventh fairway if he could ever make it out into under those lights of the club. He found an old club and began to practice hitting balls around his yard first.Quitting school he managed to get a job as a gardener at the club and on the side worked as a caddy.He went on to hone his skills without an instructor.The years in between weren't kind but he stayed in the game. He pressed on. In 1966 he was 54th in the U.S. Open and at that point wondered if golf was for him.In 1968 Lee Trevino won the U.S.Open and the British Open followed in 1980.

Talent and enthusiasm , though important , aren't enough.What we all can do with in our lives like it had been for others before us is : perseverance , pressing on.Here are other voices on pressing on:

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
Franklin D. Roosevelt 

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.    Harriet Beecher Stowe

Even though the ship may go down, the journey goes on.
Margaret Mead 
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”   
Calvin Coolidge.
