As Donny Says, There’s Got to Be a Better Way!

Is your work like the Office Space sitcom?  Mine was for awhile.

As Donny says on CNBC “There’s Got to Be A Better Way” and there is.

Everyone wants the American Dream of owning their own business and calling the shots.  It’s not just about money. It’s about the freedom, controlling your own destiny, the challenge.  

Most of us don’t take action, we just talk about it.  

I’m guilty of this. I took a ride on the office drama bandwagon for years, constantly groaning about my corporate job.  It was easier to complain about my circumstance then to make a change.

I watched Donny’s show “The Big Idea” consistently for a year before I decided to take action.  For those who don’t know the show, it’s an entrepreneur encouragement show.  It features every day entrepreneurs making their dreams reality.  Finally, I got to the point where I was sick of watching everyone else make it happen.   This was my turn!  Just what I needed to get off the caboose and take the reins.


I’m not telling you to throw spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks.  You should only make calculated business moves. An opportunity that you can slowly transition into in a financially responsible way.

Actively seek and find your inspiration wherever you can.  Once you get your mind right, you’ll be amazed at how quickly inspired ideas will come to you.  Get Into the Groove!

Your only as good as the company you keep.  If your the smartest cookie in your group, then widen your circle of friends.  

Here’s a few things that worked for me;
