And The World Will Be A Better Place

And the world will be a better place

For you and me...
You just wait and see...

So I'm sitting in McDonalds doing some work while my kid is playing in the "Playland" area and having a great time with some other kids and a couple of things hit me.

First, it constantly amazes me how easily kids make friends.

As adults, sometimes people forget the power of just introducing yourself and saying hi. I go to a lot of networking events and I see people standing around doing nothing all the time. In a room full of 50 people, I still see people standing alone. It's as if we forgot what it was like to be a kid... forgot how to talk to people. I know part of this is because we're always told never to talk to strangers... and as we grow up, some people take that lesson to heart and never speak to anyone. I, personally, love meeting new people. There's just not enough of me to go around and experience everything, so I love hearing other people's stories.

If you get nervous meeting new people, then just go to a kid's play area and watch the kids. The local mall, McDonald's, parks... they're full of kids. Pay attention to how they just instantly make friends. There's not preconceived notions, no expectations, no judgements. Just a hey... let's be friends and play together.

Take note of kids and go forth and network.

Speaking of which, our next Entrepreneur Success Network Business Afterhours event is coming up soon! On April 25, 2013, we'll be partnering up with the Hoffman Estates Junior Chamber of Commerce again to host a Business Networking Fundraiser. This time we'll be donating all proceeds to The Blackhawk Foundation which raises money for handicapped children. The investment to attend is only $10 and light appetizers and a cash bar are once again available.

Here's the registration link:

Be a kid again and come and network with some like minded individuals.

By the way, the second thing that came to my mind was how perfect a song Jackie DeShannon's Put A Little Love in Your Heart (from 1969) is for Entrepreneurs.

At our recent workshop, "The Way of the Entrepreneur", we talked about how Entrepreneurs have a burning desire for something. In my experience, the entrepreneurs that succeed are the ones who have a burning desire for something greater than their current situation.

Have you ever wanted more in your life? More for your family and friends? Well then find out what that "Little Love" or burning desire is in you and start pursuing it. And work to make the world a better place for you and me...

Put A Little Love In Your Heart

When you follow your heart and passion and start doing what you love, you'll be amazed at how wonderful life can be. Yes, there will be trials and tribulations and when you have a burning passion, vision, and commitment to succeed, wow!!!!

So just put a little love in your heart and just wait and see...

Celebrate Life!
