From the Intro to GET OFF YOUR ASSETS:
More than ever, people are wanting to leave their jobs to become entrepreneurs. This is especially true for salespeople. And it makes sense. If you’re a great sales professional, why not work for yourself and get paid more money? That is exactly what I did. Working for Comcast Business as a Business Account Executive (BAE) for thirteen months was long enough for me to realize that I NEEDED to be an entrepreneur. Within ten months, I had doubled my income.
Within two years, my company –MitechPartners.com—was featured in multiple publications. Within four and a half years, Mitech was featured in the NASHVILLE BUSINESS JOURNAL as one of the largest minority firms in Nashville, Tennessee. We now have nearly 300 sales affiliates throughout the US and more than 1,200 clients, such as Holiday Inn Express, Quality Inn, Zaxby’s, and Farmers Bank & Trust.
But the success of my launch didn’t just happen...
All Hard work Leads to a Profit, but mere Talk Leads only to Poverty.
Discipline weighs ounces, Regret weighs tons
Innovation is Rewarded, Execution is worshipped.
You gotta BE before you can DO, and DO before you can HAVE
Adversity is you partner in success if you develop the right mindset.
Caring what other people think will have you thinking like other people.
