Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying?

Excitement and motivation are always at the highest level when first starting a new venture. This is particularly true when starting your own home-based business and get out of the rat race.

I have discovered three areas to keep an eye on to help make sure your path avoids common pitfalls…

1. Avoid Life’s Inertia

You may have already experienced this after starting your business. You set goals with great intentions but find yourself sidetracked by normal day-to-day life situations (work, taking care of the kids, taking care of the spouse, grocery shopping, going out to dinner, etc, etc).

How Do You Break the Rules?

I had a fascinating conversation with an individual awhile back and they pointed out that my success was because I did things my own way, “breaking the rules,” and took my own path.

This sounds too good to be true

Good point, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. First lets talk about what Fire Your Boss is NOT…

It is not a MLM program where you have to hit up your friends to buy magnets or some water found in the Amazon that makes hair grow.

Secondly, this isn’t some veiled attempt to get you to buy some new shiny object. I don’t have a warehouse full of CD’s or books to mail you. Heck, I don’t even have a warehouse!

So, who are you anyway?

My name is Fred Rewey, although friends jokingly call me “Godfadr.” No I am not in the “mob,” matter-of-fact, I am not even Italian; I have just built numerous businesses and created multiple ways to get income. Continue reading “What the Heck is Fire Your Boss?”
