“It is the people who can do nothing who find nothing to do, and the secret to happiness in this world is not only to be useful, but to be forever elevating one’s uses.”
~ Sarah Orne Jewett – 1849-1909, Author
What better way to be useful than to get involved. Community service and other volunteer organizations are where most people begin when they feel it’s “time to get involved” and be useful. I agree. However, I also agree there is no better place to start than right where you are. Can you say with all certainty that you are fully applying yourself in all your endeavors? Entrepreneurs are often idea people who stretch themselves thin with numerous ideas taking form. It’s wise to continually evaluate these ideas, knowing that only a few will bring success. As I’ve shared before, failure is part of the success process.
Where are your skills and talents most useful to others and your upward mobility? If you can’t answer that, stop and do it immediately. You can filter where you put in the majority of your efforts and where you choose to bring in other talented hands achieving what makes them most useful. Are you seeing a pattern here? Being useful is not about “doing something”, it’s about doing specific tasks that bring benefit to yourself and others. It’s often this simple idea of doing what you do best, that is easily forgotten when your life gets moving fast.
Real estate investing has many areas where you can apply your expertise. Coming up November 12-15th, Lee Arnold is calling you to Spokane, WA where you can put your talents to work and open your mind to learning from a man who knows where he is most useful to his family and community. He doesn’t open this opportunity up often, and he provides you with leads, transportation and education. You end the weekend understanding the process of gathering data and evaluating which deal is worthy. Want more?

Don’t Delay, This is a Hands On Opportunity!
Before coaching or exerting any effort as a leader, ask yourself these three questions: 1.) Who am I trying to convince? 2.) What do I want them to do? 3.) Why do I want them to do it?
~ Linda Byars Swindling
That statement applies to any area of your life. Leadership is not inclusive to ‘the office’ or your profession. Think about it. Who am I trying to convince? A teenager, neighbor, spouse, or even, yes, you! Leadership is a character trait that needs developing when you choose to step out as an entrepreneur. Let’s go back to question number one. Who is your target audience? It’s important to define who you want to reach and adjust your leadership language accordingly. Each of the examples given has a different relationship with you and therefore, you must know the language to capture their attention. Think about the similarities rather than the differences, if you are leading a large group of people.
Question two is the call to action. You may have a great idea or product, but if you don’t tell them what you want them to do, you may lose them. No matter how obvious the action you require, buy, watch, listen, etc., you must directly communicate exactly what it is you want them to do. Question three is the qualifier of why you want the action to those you are addressing. Remember question one? How are you meeting their need or resolving their pain? Communicating through stories and examples that create a picture in the listeners mind are effective with any group.
To excel in life and build wealth, leadership development must be a continual part of your assent. Whether you are just beginning to look at what makes a leader or you currently lead others, leaders stay connected with other leaders. Lee Arnold’s Las Vegas WealthShop was overflowing with leaders exhibiting leadership character and extremely successful! Those in attendance are fired up and know the importance of being together, in person, to inspire, support and learn from one another. There is only ONE MORE opportunity to learn from Lee Arnold’s leaders this year. November 12-15 in Spokane, WA is the Home Buyers Tour. If you haven’t heard about it yet, keep reading this week or

It’s a HANDS ON MUST ATTEND Event!
First of all, why aren’t you in Las Vegas listening to Lee Arnold right now?!
You are missing Lee Arnold in his element – “with his students”. The place he shines and brings it all out, is in front of those eager and looking to learn and apply new techniques on their way to building their own entrepreneurial wealth. Maybe you just weren’t quite there, and need a little more inspiration to attend the next opportunity filled event.
USA TODAY creates snapshots of us Americans. Today I found more validity to ideas of change creating opportunities for entrepreneurs looking for an opening. Nearly four in ten callers to a financial help line in April through June complained of mounting debt. According to the snapshot, what consumers are stressed about breaks down like this:
7% Credit Management
6% Real Estate
5% Retirement Planning
Know what that means to you?! Opportunity and opening! You have the answer of where people are hurting and how to meet that need. Where? Their finances. How? Lee Arnold’s Loan Modification program. In marketing, companies look for positioning. They determine where the competitors are, who they are targeting, the price or value, and seize an opening for an unmet need. The Loan Saver Consultant Kit allows you to buy from us in a wholesale capacity and accentuate your entrepreneurial spirit by going out and finding others with a financial mortgage hurt, and selling the Loan Renovator to them. If you want to take it a step farther, you can choose to become a certified loan modification specialist and help them work through their modification process.
At I’m The Solution, we are offering you the opportunity to merely meet their need by providing the kit and making you some extra money. There is no reason to be mentally down in a changing market. Think of how change affects people around you and find ways to resolve the pain. If 71% are hurting over debt, budgeting and savings and you have a solution, don’t you think you should help them? I do!
Call our consultants and talk to them about the Loan Saver Consultant Kit and how you can become involved in meeting the needs of financially hurting friends and neighbors in your life. Our expertly trained consultants will gladly answer any and all questions and get you started on a new entrepreneurial opportunity that meets a current need!

“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck,
take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.”
— Brian Tracy
Are you endlessly reading and researching or are you getting out there and putting SOMETHING into action? It is an easy thing to look around you and say, “He’s so lucky, things just seem to work out for him.” Maybe. But have you ever thought that maybe it was being in the right place at the right time? Opportunity is literally everywhere. It’s awareness of your goals, seeking what you need, and daily focus on where you are headed and what you need to get you there. Soon, YOU will be the one with the luck!
With the economic and political changes continuing to happen, this opens more opportunity. Your research and reading should be in areas of interest to you, with the intent of forward thinking. What product or services are people needing now, due to economic or political changes? Lee Arnold is a man of ideas and action. He tries, fails, tries again and again until success is achieved. He listens, reads, consults, and watches what changes and where new opportunities are sure to open for sharp thinking individuals. It’s no secret he has valuable experience and expertise to share through his products, with his students. He earned the right to share with you from the action he takes, which may look like luck to you. To Lee Arnold, it’s a myriad of situations and ideas all forming together to create success, not through luck that you may perceive.
People across the country are hurting. How can you help them? What do they need? We know the credit card companies (i.e. banks) are utilizing their small print in the contracts that so many of us blindly agreed to. Many are now being stung by the banks’ ability to adjust our charges, fees, and interest rates. That naturally leads to financial strains on many households. How can you take action? By learning loan modifications, you may be able to help strengthen their financial position. Maybe they have tried that route and did not prevail against their lender. Short Sales may appear to you as something only licensed real estate professionals partake in, but Lee Arnold can show you how to help here too! Think you are out of ways to help your financially strapped neighbors and friends? Not at all! How about all those individuals lacking understanding and information on what they need to do if they receive a notice of default and find their home is in the foreclosure process? You got it! Lee Arnold has a program to teach you how to help these individuals too!
It’s about action people. Reading and researching has its place, but action is where you will see luck, isn’t really luck, as much as it is being aware of and looking for the opportunities surrounding you daily. Move into action through purchasing a program Lee Arnold offers and if you need another boost, he also offers one-on-one or twice a month coaching calls. Don’t allow yourself to feel defeated because of the changing economic and political actions you have no control over. Take control of where YOU want to go and see the numerous opportunities appear right in front of you. Soon, you will be that lucky person your friends and neighbors are talking about!

“In a time of turbulence and change, it is more true than ever that knowledge is power.”
- John F. Kennedy

Where are you on a Friday afternoon? Working for yourself, in your time schedule, or at the beckon call of a boss? The freedom of working for yourself earns you the right and responsibility to plan your schedule. For Lee Arnold, October means a trip to the pumpkin patch with his wife and three small children. You are thinking, well then he just works all day Saturday to make it up. Not necessarily! Freedom comes with responsibility. Many millionaires are passionate about their work, the thrill of big deals and new breakthroughs. But just as prevalent is their desire and love for family time. It’s the joy of being able to schedule family time when they need you, instead of when your boss says you are free to go.
I ran across this article in USA Today as I wondered who else might be heading to the pumpkin patch:
Thad Starr, of Pleasant Hill, Ore., tips his hat after winning in the World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off contest in Half Moon Bay, Calif., Monday, Oct. 13, 2008. Starr’s pumpkin weighed 1,528 pounds (693 kg) and beat the local contest record. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma) Click the picture to read the full article. What is your dream? Hopefully it is to plan your days and life around what you are passionate about and take the steps necessary to reach your goals. America is a land of great opportunity! That opportunity is all around you…take a look and then take back your life!
The sum of wisdom is that time is never lost that is devoted to work.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do people tell you that you work too much? That you really need to stop and enjoy yourself? They should. You are on the right path to achieving your dreams and pushing to the next level up when you appear unstoppable to those in your life. Millionaires are focused. They know what they want and they will fail a hundred times if they know in their heart it’s achievable. It’s important to have others around you that believe in you and where you are headed. We’d like to believe we can do things on our own and that is partially true. It’s your above and beyond efforts that get you to the next level. Having people standing behind you, supporting those long hours, adds to your success.
Mastermind groups can add to family support or replace it if you are single. These groups are created from like-minded professionals that meet periodically to support, encourage, challenge, and brainstorm business ideas and/or plans. Find people with expertise and backgrounds different than your own, yet headed in the same direction, it will serve you best. The collective failures and successes will shorten your path to the next level. It’s the number of people in the group as much as it is what they bring to the table. Choose carefully.
The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
- Donald Kendall
Is this group really important? Absolutely! How much is enough? When you are intently focused on your dream, everything in your world will be filtered through the dream. You will love the life you are living, the long hours, the many collaborative meetings, and WORK will be enjoyable. Millionaires don’t sit around spending their money, they only sit around when they are deep in thought. Reaching where only 3% of the U.S. achieves financially is a small percentage because so few really understand the work and effort it takes to achieve and sustain their millions.
Where do you meet millionaires to grasp the focus and intensity I speak about? Come to Las Vegas this month! October 23, 24, and 25 several millionaires will be gathering to share not only how they achieved their wealth, but will encourage you to challenge them at the 3% level. Is your focus is real estate investment including short sales, hard money, and foreclosures, or loan modifications, credit repair, or social media advantages? Then you must be there! Not only will you learn from these millionaires, it’s an opportunity to network with others headed in the same direction, that may be exactly what you are looking for to join your Mastermind group!

Did I say Millionaires are Well-Educated? No, not exactly. A college degree isn’t what makes someone successful or wealthy. Putting whatever you learn into action is what leads you down the path of failure and success. Why failure? Because if you are not failing, you are not putting enough ideas into action. When I was in Jr. High I took skiing lessons. I didn’t like to fall any more than “I felt” necessary. My instructor kept pushing me beyond my comfortable level and I pushed back. He finally said, “If you aren’t falling continually while I instruct you, you aren’t applying what I am teaching.” Meaning, as we fail we learn and grow. It may be learning how things don’t work, but we now have one more way that doesn’t work and that can only lead to what does work.
Whoever ceases to be a student has never been a student. George Iles
Are you failing at something now? GREAT! Now get up and move on to the next thing. However, if you are failing because you are neglecting to put anything into action and just hoping some fairy godmother will wave a wand and make it all better, give it up. It may not be the image of a fairy godmother in your head, but you are stalling and lacking action, aren’t you? Maybe whatever you set out to accomplish is not what you are passionate about. Accept that, set it aside and move on to a new endeavor.
Wear the old coat and buy the new book. – Austin Phelps
Where do you start? Pick up a book! If you are not currently reading on a daily or even weekly basis, start today. And I don’t mean the newspaper or your Yahoo! or MSN page. I mean a book stimulating your growth in yourself, your career, hobby, or a future entrepreneurial adventure. Millionaires don’t have to go to college to implement million dollar ideas. They have a natural capacity to learn and apply the knowledge of people who have already been through trial and error processes. Books are written testimonies that you can read and put into action. Don’t let me lose you here if you aren’t an avid reader. You are reading this blog and cruising around the internet, right? Pick up a book on CD and it still counts for being well-read!
It’s never a good time to stop the learning process. Not a reader, or one to listen to a CD? Well put yourself into action by attending Lee Arnold’s Extravaganza ’09 and grow in your knowledge and understanding of Short Sales, Foreclosures, Loan Modification, Social Media, and more. Your list of excuses has run out. Take action and grow and you will be well on your way to being a well-read Millionaire!

Recently someone asked me where they could find more information on “who” Lee Arnold is if they searched the internet. I shared some insights I had gained from searches and pulled them together with first hand experience from working with him. A good way to understand “who” a person is, is to listen to them. Lee often shares his personal opinions, beliefs, and even a story here and there about his family. You will see much of “who” the man is by why what he shares. Here’s an example showing how Lee Arnold believes in you, economic resilience, and America:
Q: Do you think America has it in it to survive this economic pitfall?
A: Good question. If you read the articles circulating on the internet, you may wonder if we do have what it takes to survive the current economic downturn. I believe that we do. Last December I showed you the historic bounce back that every market experiences after suffering a severe downturn. That’s because Americans, as a whole, have the ability to adjust, adapt, dig their heels in, and work hard during hard times. Many of the greatest men and women in history have exhibited this resolve.
To do this, we must first own the loss, learn from it, and then move on. In a recent NPR story, the reporter interviewed various people who had lost their job during this recessionary period. What she was most struck by was their ability to mourn the loss, and then pick themselves up by the bootstraps and move on. In one story in particular, an unemployed investment banker paraded near the offices of major employers in Manhattan for two weeks wearing a sandwich board that read, “Experienced MIT Grad for Hire.” His moxie got him numerous job offers and well-wishes from passers-by.
Although it’s an odd recipe for success, it shows resolve, charisma, and sense of self that is boiler plate American. So yes, I do believe that we’ll weather this storm. More importantly, do you?
Are you weathering the storm or are you merely “experiencing” what the world throws at you? If it’s time you stepped up and took some action towards achieving the goals you set for 2009, despite what naysayers are doing, JOIN US IN LAS VEGAS and hear more from Lee Arnold himself!
