-Muscle & Fitness June 2014, pg 126

If you knew me at all you’d know this is something amazing…me in the kitchen cooking, lol.  Seriously though, I’ve been told, MORE THAN ONCE, to stay out of the kitchen.  But I did it! I made something cool and actually tasted good! Lol

I’ve picked up plenty of magazines, books, articles, etc that have amazing recipes inside, but until now never seemed to prepare any of them.  I’ve not been much of a “cook” in times past, but recently I’ve taken an interest in preparing meals!  In my post “Will the REAL Brandye Dague Please Stand Up” I state my journey back to me.

Will The REAL Brandye Dague Please Stand Up

JUST B HEALTHY & FIT…Back To B…The REAL Me

It’s time to get back to B (me).  I began blogging, over a year ago, with Empower Network.  I was told over and over to blog about what I’m passionate about and tie it together with the Empower Network opportunity, BUT…

Rather than be coachable (the main ingredient to success) and Just Be B…I basically became a copy cat of what other people, in the business, were passionate about because in my head it was more “in line” with Empower Network (EN)products.  Again, Dave Wood, founder of EN, and other leaders continued to teach to blog about my passion/s.  Eventually, I became “burned-out” because I wasn’t staying true to myself.  But now I’m getting Back To B!

BUILDING A SUCCESS NETWORK

~The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program

As an entrepreneur or even in our personal lives, learning to rely on others is vital to our success.

Although, this blog series is focused on the business side I want to provide you a personal example…

My sister, who prior to April 1, 2008, was living a life of prostitution, addiction and hopelessness.  I love listening to her testimony when she talks about the day she cried out to God saying, Continue reading

THE WEALTHY MINDSET

Lifestyles of the Wealthy Mindset

Folks in the wealth system are frugal.  They spend their money on things they deem fulfilling, which leads to Lifestyle Freedom.

Those who are truly wealthy are less likely to live in expensive neighborhoods or drive luxury cars. Those who accumulate wealth believe that financial independence and personal freedom are more important than displaying social status. Continue reading

PERSISTENCE PRODUCES SUCCESS

This blog post is #8 (#7-click here) in a series that’s been inspired by an entrepreneurial class I’m taking.  The class is focused around the mindset of an entrepreneur.  Interviews of several entrepreneurs with humble beginnings make up the majority of the curriculum.  I want to introduce them here in hopes to provide inspiration and hope to those of you who have been sitting on the fence undecided and afraid of taking the leap to create a lifestyle of freedom!

Brian Scudamore: Starting with little more than $1,000 and a few fliers, he transformed a simple

idea into a very successful business.Today his company 1-800 GOT JUNK has grown to annual sales

in excess of $100 million dollars and more than 300 locations worldwide. Continue reading

COMMUNITY – A SUCCESS NETWORK OF OTHERS

There is no guaranteed success formula BUT…

surrounding ourselves with those who have been where we want to go increases our likelihood of success!

COMMUNITY, A Collective Mindset

Overnight success is a lie…the journey of an entrepreneur is lifelong and comes with many hurdles of uncertainty, setbacks and disappointments.  Along with passion, determination and endurance it will take a community of support – a network of others, whose knowledge and experience can be leveraged in order to help you reach your goals. Continue reading

WHAT DOES YOUR BRAND SAY ABOUT YOU?

Your Brand = Your Reputation

It’s not just what YOU say about your business…what others say holds the most weight.

While your brand can be portrayed through a logo, tagline or a name, it’s the actions behind these that really speaks volume.  Your brand is the result of your actions.  You’e heard it said best this way:

Actions Speak Louder Than Words.

Branding yourself as RELIABLE = your success.  This speaks to both business and your personal life…wherever we are, in whatever we do, we are building our brand.  Do you do what you say you’re going to do when you said you’d do it?  And at the price you said you’d do it for? Continue reading

A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE

All people want to earn more money to aid in improving life.  Simple things such as eating organic, upgrading to a more reliable car, allowing little Johnny to participate in both, basketball and karate.  Traveling/vacationing.  Providing the best care for our elderly parents.

What does lifestyle freedom look like for you?

side note:  the above link introduces you to our newest AUTOMATED system which makes creating lifestyle freedom even easier!

But more times than not we find ourselves living paycheck to paycheck.  Trapped in low paying jobs and/or unsatisfying careers; asking ourselves “why is it I seem to never get ahead?” Continue reading

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Knowledge is the Lifeblood of an Entrepreneur

One’s effort can only take them as far as their understanding.

To succeed we must be willing to learn.

Today’s post is number 4 (#3 click here) in the Entrepreneurial blog series I’ve started.  I’ve not yet decided when it will end as I am learning SO much from the class and I want to pass it on to my audience!

As mentioned in the 1st post, I will showcase the entrepreneurs that were interviewed for the curriculum.  From gang members to foreigners to single mothers to disabled and handicapped, my hope is that their stories will inspire you to follow your dreams no matter the challenges you will face… Continue reading

THE SECRET OF RECOGNIZING OPPORTUNITY

PROBLEM SOLVING…The Secret Of Recognizing Opportunity

Problems are opportunities – this is the fundamental mindset every entrepreneur must understand.

The “secret” of entrepreneurship is simply this:

By solving other people’s problems you create success for yourself.

Here’s a problem I’m passionate about and have found a solution for…

Statistics report only 20% of people love their job.  The problem is, the majority of people (80%) do not.  The underlying problem is people are not living to their full potential which leaves them unsatisfied and unfulfilled. Continue reading
