It’s Never Too Late

Good Morning 

Let me ask you a question:

No matter how much success you enjoyed last year (with all the challenges), I have to ask you to do one thing for me in 2021:

Dare to grow.  

It’s my belief that, long term, we’ll see more millionaires and household names created from entrepreneurs who took the chance and choose to expand in the pandemic, so I want to challenge you to think like that, too.

Maybe it’s moving your business to a full online store.

Maybe it’s building an automated training program.

Maybe it’s opening up a completely unrelated business that you never saw a need for until last year.  

Whatever “it” is, I want you to do it!

There’s never going to be a more forgiving time in our lifetimes – money is cheap to buy and a lot of people do have cash reserves, and, quite frankly, they’re growing tired of the constant negativity of the news and social media.  

They’re looking for new ways to do old things, and smart entrepreneurs are tapping into those needs and wants.   

Or, to put it another way:  do you want to make “enough” and build a company that is little more than a job you can never sell or do you want to create generational wealth and a brand that will live far beyond your own life?  

Here’s the thing:  Both of those require the same amount of time!  

Don’t believe me?  Think about this:  You have 86,400 seconds today and at the end of the day, those are gone.  

You can build something of value in that time or you can simply watch videos of kittens online and complain about how slow business is.  

Take that one day and look at it over the course of months and years, and I think you’ll see my point.  

Ray Kroc began operating McDonalds in the 1950s and thousands of other men and women opened their own restaurants at that time, too.

Yet only McDonalds is still around today.  

Every one of those entrepreneurs had the same 86,400 seconds in their days, yet only a handful are remembered today.  

No matter how good or bad you think last year went, 2021 can be a great year, and I want you to really stretch your entrepreneurial muscles this year.  

Expand your business, open a new one, or simply find new ways to make your money go to work for you everyday – just recognize that it’s never too late to grow and expand and make this the best year ever.

All the best,

Ted Smith, CPA
