"Work to Learn; Not to Earn!"

Hello Everyone!!

Many times, when we work, we want to make a lot of money.  Most of us have worked on jobs and have not always been happy.  Either we didn't like the hours, the pay, the manager, the conditions, etc. And, some of us decided we wanted to own a business, therefore, we could be in charge and make the rules.

Sometimes, working on a job will give you the motivation needed to take the leap of faith to pursue entrepreneurship.  During the years of working at Dudley Products, Mr. Dudley would often speak about "Work to Learn, Not to Earn!"  When I first heard him announce that topic, I was looking at him like he had lost his mind!  Thinking, "no way, I have already done that!"

As he continued to speak, I realized he was referring to sweat equity, experience, and observation.  He was speaking about doing the job effectively and efficiently, while learning the business at the same time.  Paying attention to details, asking questions, making notes of the things you like and that are working to make the business successful.

He was also speaking about learning everything you can, while on a job.  And, if you were to pursue entrepreneurship, you will have learned some key pointers needed to make your business successful.  You will have the experience of being a part of a successful business.  You will not mind the sweat equity needed to be invested into embarking on entrepreneurship, because you would have done it for someone else.

After hearing Mr. Dudley speak on this topic several times, his meaning was clear to me.  Members of the Toni Love Group shared on the March 2017 conference call, examples of when they worked to learn and how it is beneficial to them now.

Lori Russell of VA was a manager of a J.C. Penney salon and now owns a business.  She shared a lot of helpful information on the conference call about the pointers she learned at J.C. Penney and it still using today. (To hear Lori, log onto www.tonilovegroup.com.)

Although, everything may not be "picture perfect," where you are working today, but, go into work tomorrow with a different outlook.  The tasks you are performing now for someone else, may be the key to your success!

Wisdom Brings Joy!

Hello Everyone!

Wisdom has been defined as "the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise." Many times, people make decisions in their personal and professional lives without using wisdom.  These decisions can be due to not wanting to hurt the feelings of a loved one or not wanting to disagree with authority on a job. Afterwards, the feelings of regret starts to flow throughout the body.

New business owners tend to rely on information of others when making important decisions.  Sometimes, the information they receive does not fit their business model, but, they do it anyway.  Making a decision that is not wise. In the beauty industry, people tend to see something working for another business owner and it sparks their curiosity.  Then, that owner will change their business model without thinking about it.

They tend to act first, without making an informed decision.  They see the advertisement on social media, the owner may be driving a luxury vehicle and wearing name brand clothes. And, a decision is made to change the original business model, based on an assumption.

It is very important to make wise decisions in our personal and professional lives.  Many people are in marriages and relationships and are not happy.  They feel is it wise to stay because of various reasons and complain about the relationship to others. Just as, people stay on jobs and are not fulfilled or happy. They stay because they may be comfortable or too scared to leave or too lazy to try and get another one.

In relationships, people stay because of kids, monetary reasons, etc. Yet, they are not truly happy. Both situations need to be analyzed on an individual basis before deciding the wise thing to do.  But, life is too short not to use wisdom and be happy.  Wisdom brings joy!

Love and History!

Hello Everyone!!

February has been deemed the month of LOVE!  Before January ends, we start to see the color red and heart-shaped boxes throughout the shopping malls, grocery stores, etc.  The 14th is the day to express our love to our sweethearts a little bit more than usual.  Lovers feel joyous, yet, anxious.  Proposals will happen, announcements will be made, and flowers will be delivered.

Love is a beautiful thing.  The feeling of knowing someone else loves you is great!  The security of being protected and having another person being concerned about your well-being is priceless.  The laughter shared between lovers, the comfort of being yourself and allowing your guards to come down can be refreshing. Valentine's Day reminds us that being in love is okay.  Being in love should be celebrated on a special day.

February is also a month to celebrate the achievements of many great African-Americans and/or black people, who have contributed so much to our society.

Many are unknown or "Hidden Figures," as the movie title suggests.  The movie that tells the story of three amazing African American female mathematicians who were very instrumental in assisting with getting a man to the moon.  And, there are so many others who we do not hear or read about in the history books.

Thank goodness for technology, because today, we can research and find out more about these great people of color who contributed to American history.  Movies like Hidden Figures, 42, Roots, To Sir, With Love and others can assist with aiding all people with a better understanding of the African-American heritage.

I remember being given a book entitled, "The Color Purple," when I was a teenager.  The book later became a movie and I remember the excitement of seeing what I read come to life before me. Watching the movie as a teen, I was not mature enough to understand the various messages that was meant to be conveyed. Watching it again as adult, I clearly understood the messages.

The early exposure to African-American history through books, documentaries and movies was great for me. Now, it's time we are all exposed to the contributions made by so many great people.  Let's get started TODAY!

Having Money vs. Having Class!

Hello Everyone!

There is a misconception about the perception of wealth.  Many people feel they can purchase expensive homes, cars, name brand clothing and they are wealthy.  Feeling wealthy and living wealthy is very different. Depending on the level of poverty, the feeling of wealth can vary from person to person.

In some situations, a mobile home can make someone feel wealthy.  Others may feel a two-story home signifies wealth and the driver of a Rolls Royce may have the same feeling.  Therefore, the feeling of wealth and success is different per person. People want different things based on their experiences.

Therefore, it's not good to measure your success by other people, because you don't know where or how they got started.  There is a misconception of class.  Class is not purchased, it is a learned behavior that usually starts in the home.  Class is indicated by mannerisms, etiquette, and character.

Many believe, if a person has money, the individual has class too.  This is not true.  There are indicators of class within each of us.  The way a person hold their eating utensils, regular table manners, following the host of a dinner, eating the food and then drink.  Many drink as they eat.

People with class do not "name drop" designer clothing brands, names of cars, designer handbags, etc. Because, it is the "norm," it's not new, it's a way of life.  Being wealthy is an acquired way of life for some and others were born into it.  Thus, the phrase was coined, "old money vs. new money."

However, many have a desire to acquire wealth, but, not having class keeps them out of certain circles. Wealth can be acquired without having class, but, the circle of friends and associates are usually limited to the same people you were around when you were in poverty.

Class is the key to bridge the gap.  Having class will assist in getting a person in certain social circles to make the proper connections.  As the year ends. set attainable goals and self-project.  If you want to attain wealth or acquire more class.  Enroll in business and/or etiquette classes in 2017!

It's never too late to make a positive change!  Happy Holidays!
