Backyard sunset. Grateful for this life.
None of us have total control or total security. There is no “security.” Never has been. Never will be. As always there’s an exception to the rule, this is it: Nothing is secure BUT you’re ability to produce. Are you investing in your ability to produce? Or are you hoping things will just change? Only you can answer that.
One step closer to grapes planted in vineyard. Today the drip irrigation got laid out! It’s like ur dreams- stages and phases!
Ready for a truth bomb? You are replaceable - and if you’re business doesn’t make it, you’re back getting a job! The horror I tell you! This is the Truth. B-U-T (and this is a good “but”), you can do something about it. It’s up to you to be a smart and capable business owner. Are you? Grab the link to the latest blog in my bio > @vitoglafata
Best day of my life - when I got fired. Back when I was a trainer at Crunch, in Orange County, bringing in $12k/month in personal training sales, running 40+ sessions a week, I got fired because I decided to start my own side business offering metabolic testing and nutrition help to my clients. A service the gym didn’t even provide, but told me I was “in conflict of interest.” Phooey. But, I wasn’t blind to the reality, that I was replaceable and to a big company not important. I could kick and scream as much as I wanted, but the reality is the big corporation could do what they wanted too and little ole’ me would have to go lawyer up and it wasn’t worth it. So, I started my own business on the spot. In hindsight it was the best day of my life. In the words of The Heavy song, “How you like me now?” PS. I should’ve started that business using a system like my Clear Vision Planner, www.clearvisionplanner.com, but you get to benefit what took me years to figure out.
Anything and everything can disappear in the blink of an eye. Any job or business can be gone. Any industry can be pulled out, made illegal, taxed, restructured. Simple historical truth. Nothing is secure but what you create. The reason I bring all this up is- are you THINKING this way? Better late than sorry, right! Grab the link to the latest blog in my bio > @vitoglafata
Hey! Professor of Harsh Reality here. Here’s a thought (it’s more like a truth) ... If you’re weak in your marketing game, weak in your business game, And hate the selling game, then you’re weak in your money game. Simple as that. You can see this reality in the bank. I’m not preaching it, I’ve had my struggles with it too. I’ve been $105k in debt, had to short sell my house, Had the girls dump me because I was broke. The difference I found- do things different, choose to not stay that way. I’m being real that we all gotta step up our money game. The government and coming around to help. Corporations don’t give a crap about your pensions, or retirement. Even your small business can be vulnerable without systems. The fallacy of security is real. Arm yourself by learning how to control your money game! it’s time to do things differently and get a new focus and get some biz training under your belt.

“Work is slammed” “I’ve been doing this for so long, I’m scared to start over” “I’m a perfectionist” “My kids sports and activities take up all my time” “I gotta take the client’s in front of me” “My family is in town and I’ve got so much to do” “My mom or dad is sick and I’m the only one who can take care of them” “My spouse doesn’t support me” “The holidays are here” “It’s not the right time” “I hate selling” “I don’t want to appear salesy or cheesy” “I’m going to get another certification” “What if I fail?” “I just don’t believe that kind of money can be made” “It’s taking longer than I hoped or thought” Don’t wake up 53, 63, 73, and wish you had put aside the BS sooner. Do it now! - Coach “Swift Kick In The Ass” Vito
“Busy-ness” is the WORST form of laziness. Period. If that’s your excuse...ask yourself. Are you really busy? Do you really want to change? At some point, you have to decide if you actually want what making more money and having more time off to enjoy life really means or if it just SOUNDS good. - Coach “Swift Kick In The Ass” Vito
