I accidentally fell asleep on the sofa after work with the cats, so now I am sitting here in the dark, wide awake and of course my head is full of thoughts. Do you ever think about how nice it would be to have loads and loads of money? I do, all the time, it is my favorite daydream. I always think about how nice it would be to have $100.000.000.
Oh, come on, it is just as hard to manifest $100.000 so why not just go for it? 😉
But do you take the thinking a step further? How would it feel? I think it would be totally awesome and so liberating! I would feel like a monkey who just discovered a jungle full of banana trees with ripe bananas! But it is important to think about the following questions, why do you want to be wealthy? What would you do if you were really wealthy? How would you spend your days? What would you do with your money? Would you be working? How would you invest it? I spend so much time thinking about my wealth and these kind of questions.
I can drive people nuts sometimes with all of my thoughts and ideas. Yesterday I had another wealth idea. You see, one of my goals is to move to South California, in the San Diego area. Another goal is to help people and make a difference. I would love to combine them so I came up with an idea.
You see, since I am wealthy, I am living in a nice house with a large garden. A large garden that needs some attention so I have to hire a gardener.
There is also a ton of good, homeless people, many veterans, who ended up on the street for other reasons than addiction, all they need to get back on their feet is a break. What if I could be that break they need? So I started thinking that I could work with one of the shelters and hire one of them. Since I live in a nice big house, I also have a garage with an apartment above it. That means that I can provide one person with work, salary and housing. That’s one person off the street!
Together me and gardener Joe will learn how to do gardening, perhaps I will send him to a gardening course or similar. I don’t have all the details yet so bear with me. When gardener Joe is educated enough and my neighbors sees how good he is with my garden and how reliable he is, he will get more assignment and perhaps I can start a small business with him as a partner and we will set him up in his own apartment. That’s when we bring in the next person who moves into the apartment above the garage and the first man will teach the second one and suddenly they are two, and then we continue like this. The more I think about it, the more I realize that there are so many areas I could apply this to. I can even buy an apartment complex where they will live to a low cost and have themselves doing the maintenance. Perhaps it is dream thinking but I don’t see why I couldn’t make this a reality? Sure I am not familiar with all the laws and regulations in the US but it should be possible and if it isn’t, well then I guess I need to make it possible. 🙂 Now when I think about it, this could become a really big thing. I mean, what if a company would focus on hiring just homeless people? That would be generating some real Karma points, believe you me!
Providing homes and work for real people, giving them decent salaries and setting them up with insurance policies and teach them financial thinking so they never end up in the same situation again. Teach them how to fish, and they will never go hungry again. And another thing, I would be helping their kids as well because they would be teaching their kids how to handle money and take precautions, so they never end up in the same situation as well. School and education is awesome but it won’t teach you that kind of skills.
Helping them to help themselves, that is one of my goals. I mean just thinking about it and writing it down makes me feel really good and it rises my vibration, then imagine how it would feel to make it reality! In the meantime, maybe one of you who are reading about this idea, can adapt it and apply it to help one or two persons. That would be totally awesome! 😀
Please feel free to share your ideas, on how we can help different people in need, in the comments below.
Keep moving towards your goals!

Hola my friends,
Today will be another customer conversation. I just sold a bracelet for 8500 Euros to the former president of the Teachers union in Sweden.. We were 4 people in the room besides the clients and when the deal was over he turned around and told me, “You are really, really good as a sales person. I have had some hard negotiations in my life, with very important people, concerning large sums of money, but I really like the way you talked and convinced me”.
To explain the situation, most of our customers does not come by themselves to our store. They are reluctant customers and most of them has already decided to not purchase anything when they enter the shop. So we are really working with turning a no into a maybe and then from maybe to a yes by finding the perfect piece of jewelry to each customer and then make them an offer they cannot resist. This is something that is really hard to do, especially with Scandinavian people, they have a totally different mentality.
I cannot discuss the prices but I do everything else but discuss the price, I find out what they like, how much they would like to spend, IF they would like to spend money etc. It is a really hard job since people don’t trust you at all. But somehow my conversation skills, my own life experiences, charm and a tiny bit of manipulation seems to do the trick so that they trust me and then when my boss lowers the price a bit, they buy.
But the satisfaction I get when the female client is happy and her husband feels that he has done a good deal and then turns around to give me credit feels like receiving an A+ on a hard test! Since I knew that he had some experience, I of course asked him afterwards, if there was anything he could recommend me to do, to improve my lectures and he said, “Don’t change a thing! It is perfect and I know these kind of things because I have been working with this for years” he said.
Soon I am ready to graduate from the Real School of Sales and Public Speaking!
How does it get any better than this? 😀
I know I brag a lot but hey, I am my biggest fan and I need to support my team right?!
Shining bright like a diamond!
