    Don't Compete. COLLABORATE! The Real Secret to Exponential Growth!

    in Finance

    Competition is healthy, but most often, it is handled in cut-throat style - which is VERY UNHEALTHY!  No one wins in a cut-throat competitive environment, not even the consumer!  On the surface, it manifests in dirt cheap prices, and the consumer seems to win as a result - however, that win comes at a very high price they feel on the back end - piss poor customer service, inferior products, and undelivered promises.


    Competion can and should raise the bar, not tank it in the toilet!  Healthy competition will cause entrepreneurs to upgrade the value they offer at the price offered, and frankly - that healthy competition tends to show up when collaboration is encouraged.


    "Collaboration is a very healthy think tank experience. A mastermind of peers wanting to upgrade and uplift others around them."  Trudy Beerman


    Collaboration leads to pooling of resources, a celebration of best practices, and a sharpening of brilliant minds to even higher levels.


    Collaboration is why doctors meet at conferences to share medical breakthroughs with others in the field.  Collaboration is why news in one part of the world is shared in others.  Collaboration is how animals survive in family groups.


    Just because there are 1 million songs on love on the radio does not mean I should not write my song.   


    I guarantee, if I gave 10 leaders in the same genre the same speaking title, and a list of the same 5 points I wanted them to cover, all 10 speeches would be very different.  However, knowing that 9 other speakers are going to speak on the same topic means all 10 speakers will work harder to deliver their best performance.  THIS IS THE WIN WIN WIN! A win for the listener, a win for the speakers, and a win for the inviting organization. 


    Change how you view your peers, and grow!  Collaborate people!

    CDA Plus... Childcare Dollars Accelerator, Plus! A New Professional Journal.

    in Education

    The CDA, or the Child Development Associate, is an important credential for those in the professional childcare space.   Commercial center Directors, and even family child care providers have this credential either because it is mandatory for the job they hold, or as a step towards professionalism and career advancement.


    Childcare is one industry that is here to stay no matter how the economy changes, however, the profitability of this industry is still subject to all the challenges of other businesses, even though demand for this service will never go away.


    Maintaining the CDA credential requires continuing education, and this education opportunity is prolific, but most of what is available surrounds the job itself - how to care for the kids, curriculum, safety, center specs, and more.  Very litte niche specific education and resources exist that talk about money and profitability in this space.  This publication speaks to your personal development as a leader in the industry, and most importantly, to your money.


    The CDA Plus..., The Childcare Dollars Accelerator Plus, is a professional journal recently launched to speak to that need.


    The founding editors are myself, Trudy Beerman, the Lifestyle Upgrades the Debt-Free Wealth Way Money Coach, and veteran CPR/Safety Trainer to the childcare industry; and Nadine Burnside - a 30+ year veteran of the childcare industry, and owner/Director of two commercial childcare centers.


    You know childcare.  Now, let's talk business!   If you are an owner/director in the childcare space, or if you hold the CDA credential, this show is for you.

    The Bible on Business. A Practical, Relevant, Guide to Business Success.

    in Finance

    The Bible has a lot to say about business, money, leadership, and success.  I realized this when I was open to realizing it. It took the recession and subsequent losses to realize that I had the answers all along, in fact, I had read the answers before the problems existed and had the tools and strategies to avoid many of the heartaches, if only...


    I was an active and practicing Christian before the recession.  The Lord blessed our family with financial prosperity back then. As President Obama defines rich - anyone making $250K or more, we were pretty darned close.  Profitability was so normal for us, that the idea of one day being broke never entered our minds, nor our way of life.


    Despite how much we earned, there was very little saved.  We racked up credit card debt because paying those cards were never a struggle.  Life was good.  Then the recession hit.


    After we bought my husband a brand new $47K truck, we were about to buy me a new vehicle too and something made me postpone that purchase.  I had already noticed our monthly income slipping from the $20K+ average into lower numbers and figured I would wait till things picked up a bit. They never did.  Our young construction company in Florida, slipped into the abyss of the real estate bubble never to recover.


    Thankfully, one year prior, I had taken a Christian Finance workshop and changed our spending habits.  One year of biblical finance kept us from total destruction. 


    I turned to the Word of God for help, consolation and guidance, and God showed me that the Bible was indeed a practical, relevant guide to success.  I had the answers all along.  We simply ignored them, and our end result was a merciful version of what we truly deserved.  I share some of my findings with you in my book, The Bible on Business.

    Between Two Gods -- Write Stuff -- 5/26/2015

    in Entertainment

    In romantic movies there's the classic plot of a man or a woman caught between two people. Both are desirable but in different ways. The classical storyline is the girl who's caught in the clutches of desire for the 'bad boy' and the 'good man'. The appeal of the bad boy with his devil-may-care smile, dark looks, or rebellious life. The steadfastness and dependability of the good man has his attractiveness as well.  In the movies, it's a great story to watch unfold as the heroine decides who she'll choose. 


    In the spiritual realm, no one wants to be caught between two Gods. One is a God of love. The other, a God of hate. The one who hates you demands more and more from you until you feel you can't go any further. The one who loves you seems to be so far away you can't reach Him. When you call his name it’s as if He's not even listening. The God of hate however shows up on time to tell you just how wrong you are, how unworthy you are and how you'll never match up to His standards.  

    No one wants to be in a tug-of-war of this nature. No one.   

    On this episode of the Write Stuff, we'll be talking with Trudy Harder Metzger author of the memoir Between Two Gods. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app today. Any way you can, tune in

    Breadwinners. Incremental Improvements In Lifestyle = Lifestyle UPGRADE Now.

    in Finance

    No matter your paycheck, everyone dreams of their better life.  Waiting for that day to arrive, that day when you feel life is good, is so painful - that many simply swipe the credit card one more time and have that thing NOW!  This is for me the core reason for the massive debt in society.  Instant gratification! As I see it, you are not in debt because you have a criminal intent to take stuff you have no intention of paying for.  Instead, credit and debt seems like a welcome friend that says, "go ahead, and have it now - you can always pay later".  To much of that, and later becomes MUCH later, maybe even never.


    The goal is that upgrade, that thing that will bring you joy or an improved quality of life experience - NOW!  For some, that is moving from a 21 inch TV, to a 45 inch flat screen.  For some it means traveling first class instead of coach.  For some it means moving to a nicer neighborhood.  Lifestyle upgrade is a a term I coined to represent anything that improves your quality of life experience.


    We desire and deserve lifestyle upgrades, however, to enjoy those the debt-free wealth way, is the better way to go.  The debt-free wealth way as I teach it, delayed gratification is simply a strategy NOT a lifestyle!  When delayed gratification is no longer your general way of living, but simply a short term srategy to your lifestyle upgrade, life gets more interesting.  Let me show you how to have the lifestyle upgrades you desire and deserve, the debt-free wealth way.

    Prayer of Jabez. Expanding Territory? Let's Talk Market Share, Bible Style!

    in Finance

    Many Christians are familiar with The Prayer of Jabez found in 1 Chronicles 4:10  ""He [Jabez] was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request." (NLT)


    My focus in this show is on Expanding Territory, aka - Your Market Share!


    However, to make my point, I will refer to the combined stories found in Mark 4:35-41 and Mark 5:1-20.  


    In a business start-up, you show up brand new on the scene ready to carve out some business for yourself within the market.  Unless you are totally unique in what you do, chances are, there is already an existing supply for what you do - and you show up, ready to claim your piece of that market pie.  In other words, you become the competition, and those others are also your competitors.  That is the essence of Market Share.  The more market share you carver out for your business, the more you are 'expanding your territory'.


    Whether you competitors give you a fight (price wars, etc), the process of expansion should be as strategic as planning for war. It will take a strategic plan, a target, execution of the plan, to obtain a result.  


    Here is a quick success tip from Jesus...


    Leaders make more leaders, not just followers.  Listen in.
