  Maybe you realize your retirement funds just aren’t going to be enough to give you the kind of lifestyle you’ve always wanted in retirement. And look, it’s not your fault.

You know, when you were in your 20's and 30's you probably never thought that facing retirement would possibly be the most frightening time of your life.

Why do you do what you do?

by Scott Anders Mike Hoff Business, Home Based Business, Self Improvement
What do super-successful coaches and small business owners all have in common? It’s not experience. It’s not extraordinary skills. It’s not even a powerful drive. Although all of these things can definitely help your business grow, they’re not a prerequisite for success. After all, no one is born with experience or skills, and plenty of successful people lack drive. The one thing that does make a difference, though, is your “why.” Why did you decide to become a coach or business owner? Why do you spend too ...

by Scott Anders Mike Hoff Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
Imagine you had a coaching client who consistently failed to complete her tasks for the week. She couldn’t find the time to get her email opt-in page completed.

The only thing that matters is that your goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. While that looks great on paper—and clearly, it’s easy to remember—it doesn’t go far enough for those who want to achieve big things. Think about it.

And that’s where many of us…well, fail is a strong word. But it’s the doing that trips us up more times than not. We overbook our calendars until today’s to-dos become next week’s past dues.

by Scott Anders Mike Hoff Business, Self Improvement
It’s a fact: Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 – 1964) are retiring at a greater rate than ever. Many, like myself, had to delay their departure from corporate life due to the recent recession but are now making up for lost time by finding alternative ways to make up their retirement pot deficit to live the life they have dreamed of for years. They are doing this by creating lifestyle businesses of their own, increasingly online, where they can ...

Leadership Courage is Contagious

by Scott Anders Mike Hoff Business
