The Power of Being a Dreamer
In this world, we have two types of people.
- A Dream maker is a person that catches a vision and goes to work on it. When you catch a dream, it almost haunts you until that dream comes to fruition. Dream makers do “Whatever” it takesto make that dream become a reality as fast as they can. It all starts with creating an intention.
You may be saying, “Josh, what the heck is an intention”? Well, it’s an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result. Before you set out to do anything in life, the intention is the most important part along with clarity of that intention. You have to know exactly what you want and just go for it with a clear plan of action in place to bring it to be.
How To Generate Leads Online
So what I thought i would start doing is just sharing some of the results that I have been getting. Over the past few months I have generated over 2000 leads online from scratch. Some have come from Co-ops I am involved in, Solo ads, Craigslist and other sources.
Here is a snapshot of the past 2 days lead flow
As you can see, today I have generated 42 leads and the day before 73. My best day is like 223 leads. I know, you may be thinking to yourself, “I have a hard time just generating 2 or 3 a day.” Am I right?
Well, here is the scoop. Most people are going about it the wrong way. First, your going to have to get your intentions right. Without that, your leads are not going to move forward with you in business. You have to know what the purpose of you generating those leads are. Is it to stuff your pockets with cash? or…… Is it to hopefully help some people.
Everyone Is Looking For The Right Internet Business
Let’s face it, most people are sick and tired of working day in and day out, busting their humps just to come to the end of the month and see all their hard earned cash go right back out to bills and other obligations. With Inflation and the cost of EVERYTHING going up, people’s incomes are not going up with the rising cost of goods.
What that does is causes your own personal deficit of rising credit card bills and going backwards instead of forward in your financial state.
Basically, your lacking leverage in your life.
When it’s just you trading your time for dollars, you have NO leverage. Your getting paid what the job is worth, NOT what your worth, right?
Well, it is now 2013 and while it has been a while since my last post, I don’t apologize for the absence.
You see, sometimes you have to step away and take inventory of your life now and where you want it to be. My life towards the end of last year was kind of in shambles. I had no money in the bank, had bills piling up and I knew that I had to make a change.
The greatest thing about life is that we get a “Do-over” every single day. I knew that everything I needed to succeed both spiritually, mentally and financially, I already had access to. I just had to make the decision to DO IT!
You may be asking, “Do what?”
The answer is, do everything you know you should be doing on a daily basis and a little more. The little more every day adds up over the days, weeks and months and becomes “A Lot More”.
Best Eggplant Parm Recipe
One of my favorite Italian dishes is this “Best Eggplant Parm Recipe“. I have made Eggplant Parmesan with all kinds of different eggplants and I have to say that the Heirloom Eggplant makes for one of the tastiest Eggplant Parm’s EVER!
Eggplant is one of those fruits that if made right can be just awesome, however, I am not a fan of eating it in stuff like Goulash or sauteed. It is best made in the manner I am going to go over right here.

The Best Porterhouse Steak Recipe
First let’s distinguish the difference between a Porterhouse and a T-Bone:
The two cuts look very similar: a T-shaped bone with a larger piece of meat on one side and a smaller one on the other. But there is a significant difference. Both cuts come from the short loin, the tender section of muscle between the rib and the sirloin. The short loin is composed of the top loin and the ultra tender tenderloin, (better known as fillet mignon when cut into steaks). The large side of the T-bone and porterhouse is the top loin (NY Strip Steak) and the smaller side is the tenderloin (Filet Mignon). But because the T-bone is cut from the center of the short loin, as opposed to the porterhouse which is cut from the larger end, the T-bone will have a smaller piece of the tenderloin than the porterhouse. Usually one to two bites. Therefore, if they are priced the same, you will get more of the tenderloin for your money with the porterhouse.
Ok, now for the Best Porterhouse Steak recipe.

The Best Chicken Recipes
Over the past 20 years I have made hundreds of chicken recipes, some great and some just so so. One of my favorites which I have absolutely mastered is my “Best Chicken Parmesan Recipe.”
I am going to share with you the exact recipe I use to make some of the most mouthwatering chicken you have ever had the pleasure of bringing to your lips.
First you have to start with some good chicken. While most of the people I know are buying frozen chicken in bags, I prefer to buy it either from a local farmer or (and don’t kill me on this), from Walmart.
Why Walmart? Because I like the size of their chicken breasts.
Learning how to surf and learning to market are very much alike…..
I remember the day I got my first surf board. I was 9 years old and lived on the north shore of Maui in a little town called Haiku. We lived about 20 minutes from one of the top surfing spots in the world, Hookipa beach.
Some friends up the road had an older brother about 15 and he actually sold my parents his long board for me. He would take me and my friends to Hookipa at least twice a week. My first time ever paddling out into surf, the waves were about 7-10 feet. At the time, those waves seemed like tsunami’s to me. There were no lessons given to me and it was trial by fire.
I got pounded, nearly drowned a few times but always managed to make it through the day. Week in and week out I would paddle out, get pounded by incoming surf and mostly caught the white wash in.
Learning how to surf became an obsession
You may be thinking, Josh, I can barely pay the bills I have with what I have coming in, right? How do you expect me to squeeze any more out into savings.
There are some money principles that you may not know about. They have been tested since the beginning of time. I’ll give it to you, the best I know how.
Give away 10% Save 20% and live on the rest.
Why give away 10%?
Working from home sounds like a dream for most right?
Well, after having done so for over 4 years now, I can tell you that it takes a special kind of person to make it work.
Back when I was in the hotel business, I always had a commute to the office. Sometimes in Atlanta, it takes FOREVER to get places due to the globs of traffic. I would spend 3 and sometimes 4 hours of my day getting to and from work.
I would daydream about working from home.
I thought, If I could just work from home, I’d be so much more productive……..
