The Thing About Your Slowmo Cash Flow

by Robin J. Elliott on July 19, 2014

“What? Slow? It’s going backwards!” That is true for a lot of small business owners these days – they’re waiting for the government to do something positive for a change, the economy to improve, their competitor to die, to find a great salesperson… As Dr. Seuss wrote, “…for people just waiting.

Keep Your Powder Dry

by Robin J. Elliott on July 19, 2014

This allusion is to gunpowder which soldiers had to keep dry in order to be ready to fight when required. This advice reputedly originated with Oliver Cromwell during his campaign in Ireland.

Most people are as dumb as a dog’s foot. How dare I say such a preposterous thing? Well, I simply observe their consistent choices. As Thomas Sowell said, “It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance,” and the acquisition of meaningful knowledge is not something the average person will sacrifice [...]

Test Your Level of Cynicism Here

by Robin J. Elliott on July 15, 2014

Past experiences have made cynics of us all to one degree or another. Let me run this one by you: If I told you that a German company that is endorsed by the English Royal Family, the Vatican, Mercedes Benz, FIFA, and more, and rubber-stamped by Bundespar, makes it possible for you to earn between [...]

Don’t Overlook this Goldmine of Prospects

by Robin J. Elliott on July 14, 2014

Right under your nose – closer than you think, better than you think, more than you think – qualified prospects whom you’re almost certainly not aware of. Yes, just like the Acres of Diamonds story, we’re often walking on diamonds but searching for them afar and at unnecessary expense. Who are these hidden prospects? Can [...]

Worried About Money?

by Robin J. Elliott on July 12, 2014

I feel like creating a Bumper Sticker: Ethically Ambiguous = No Future. You want to create a secure financial future for your family. But you find yourself swamped by a world of double standards, situational ethics, politically correct cowards, flexible values, and racial “guilt.” There is overt altruism and the collectivists are increasingly attacking capitalism.

Cancerous Nostalgia

by Robin J. Elliott on July 10, 2014

I wish I had kept it – a Woman’s letter to me about how her husband had bought his family’s freedom and safety with his life. He saw his teenage daughters being accosted by rough youths more and more frequently, he heard about the increase in rapes, two more of his friends were murdered and [...]

The “Head in the Sand” Poison

by Robin J. Elliott on July 4, 2014

Since the Titanic, the idea that the captain goes down with his ship has been ingrained in popular culture. But now, for the second time in just over two years, a sea captain — first in Italy and now in South Korea — has been among the first to skulk off a sinking vessel, placing [...]
