How to Teach Children To Make Money – FPUK.co

Cash pic

Hi Friends,

Welcome to a frosty Felixstowe this morning, but although its frosty outside – your attitude to people today doesn’t need to be frosty. Speak to people and treat people as you would like them to speak and treat you. Today i’m talking about how children behave with money.

“Mum! Dad! Can I have £20 to buy a new game? Can I have some money to go to the movies with my friends? Will you buy me some sweets? Can I have…?? Will you buy…???”

How many times have you heard things like this? Whether you have young children, teens or maybe even grown children, at some point or another you’ve probably felt like their personal cashpoint. And the reality is, most parents give in to their children’s’ requests.

Today our culture tends to raise an entire generation of spoiled-rotten children who think only of themselves. It’s a “give me now” generation. But your children don’t have to be counted among these spoiled-rotten brats. You can turn this situation into something good!

Especially over the holidays, Easter breaks and summer fun children seem all about want, want, want. But isn’t it so refreshing to see parents raising their children to understand the importance of work and how to be wise with money. Is that you?

Imagine if you had been taught how to make money and to work hard with a good attitude when you were young? Life would be so much easier now, wouldn’t it? Or maybe you are one of the few who were taught at an early age. Look how that has impacted your adult life!

I’ll say this: You do not have to raise spoiled brats who say, “Gimme…I want…I need…NOW!” Instead, you can help your children become well-rounded people with a good perspective on life.

All children have selfish tendencies, but they can be groomed to have an unselfish heart eager to give, serve and help others. This will prepare them for their future as a spouse, parent, employee or business person.

Your children are watching you, and they will do what you do. Take some time today to think about the example you are setting. How do you spend money? How do you talk about work? Do the words, “I don’t want to go to work today” ever come out of your mouth? What about “I can’t afford it”?

You, as a parent, have an obligation and a moral responsibility to groom your children for success. Besides, I know you do not want to be the cashpoint Parent for the rest of your life. You certainly do not want to have a 30-year-old child STILL living in your cellar and STILL asking you for cash to go out with their friends.

The bottom line is… children NEED to learn how to work and to make money. They must learn how to be wise financially, and in every other area of their lives. Your children are watching you and they will do what they see you do.

Are you setting your children up for a lifetime of financial success? Be the example today, and help your friends, family and community to do the same! Leave me your comments and please Like and Share today’s message.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Hi friends

I seem to be having a focus on success at the moment, thats because I’ve been mentoring someone who has been very negative and now they are goal focused and wanting to achieve, no more than achieve they want to succeed at whatever they put their mind to.

You won’t succeed in life unless you are connected to the right people. And those who enable you to succeed won’t always come to you; usually you must go to them.

Why do you think there’s a newspaper seller on every corner and a soft drink machine on every hotel floor? Success won’t come knocking on your door; you’ve got to go and find it.

Jesus didn’t set up a throne in the middle of each town and say, ‘This is the only place you can meet with Me’. No, He went to the marketplace, to the boats of fishermen, to the synagogue, to the homes of people. He ‘…went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere’ (Luke 9:6KJV).

What is keeping you from reaching out to others? Fear of rejection?

Until your dream becomes more important to you than your fear of rejection, you will never succeed. Successful people dread rejection too; the difference is that they believe their goals are worth it.

There are two kinds of people in your life: those who already know you have something they need, and those who don’t know it yet. So start a ‘people list’. The law of relationship says that every person is only four people away from the person they need. This simply means that you know Bill, who knows Judy, who knows Charles, who knows the person you want to get to.

You are already networked. Follow the dots and you’ll get to your destiny. Success always begins somewhere, at some moment, with someone.

The secret is, you must reach out.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email.

This is your life – make it count.

Laws For Succeeding – FPUK.co

success

Hi Friends,
A lot of people dream of being rich someday. They have this perfect little picture in their minds of how they will live their happy lives with their successful families in their dream house – after they get rich.

Some people live their entire lives talking about this perfect life they will have someday, as they sit and wait for it to happen. Whether they are waiting to win the lottery, or to receive an inheritance from some relative they didn’t even know they had, or they think they’re going to start a business someday and retire as a multimillionaire in a few years, it’s all dreaming.

But there’s something most people don’t know about wealth. It’s something so simple, and it can either work for you or against you. I’m going to tell you exactly what that is, and what you do with it after today is totally up to you.

So tell me, friend, what happens if you break a law? There is a consequence. This is true even if you don’t know the law. But if you follow the laws, you reap rewards.

Let’s talk about the law of gravity. Even if you had no idea the law of gravity existed, what would happen if you jumped out a 14th floor window? Would gravity cease to exist just because you weren’t aware of it? Would you somehow float safely down to the ground? No! Why? Because the law of gravity is in effect, whether you know it or not.

I know you’re thinking, “Andrew what in the world does gravity have to do with success?”

Friend, just as there are traffic laws and laws of physics, there are laws of success. They are principles you must follow in order to create wealth, have successful relationships, get promoted in your job and build a successful business. But if you don’t know these laws, you are likely breaking them. And what happens when you break a law? There are consequences.

Friends, the laws of success are just as important as concrete money-making skills. They are the foundation of your success in finances, relationships, business and career, and without this foundation, you will not have long-lasting success.

I am living proof these laws work. Before I learned the laws and started following them, I was broke, unguided and unfocused. I wasn’t even thinking about success or becoming wealthy… I was in debt – I had nothing! But once I learned the laws, I began to reap the rewards that come with following them. That’s how laws work.

Laws are not there to limit you or hurt you. They are there to guide and direct you. Laws are there to help you. Knowing the law of gravity can keep you from jumping out a 14th floor window and plummeting to your death. Knowing the laws of success will help you succeed in every area of your life.

Your dream life will not just fall out of the sky one day. You will not wake up one morning and discover you’re living the perfect life. That will never happen. But if you learn to follow the laws of success, and you work diligently, you will reap the reward.

These laws will lead you to fame and fortune. They will help you fulfill your dreams of helping people all over the world. They will help you have a passionate marriage. They will help you equip your children to succeed.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favor. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email.

This is your life – make it count.

Stop Making Excuses and Grow Your Business – FPUK.co

FPUK.co Growth

Hi and good morning to you,

Today I’m looking out from my office window, down the garden and theres a very light frost on the ground. We’ve been blessed so far this year we’ve had no snow yet here in the UK and this is the first frost I’ve seen.
When it comes to growing your business, there is one thing you must ALWAYS be doing. It may be Easter Holidays soon, but that is no excuse! You have to continually expose your product, service or ideas. And sometimes you have to think outside the box.

There is no limit to the different ways you can get your offer out to others who need to see or hear it. Think about it – TV and radio commercials, newspaper and magazine ads, on the Internet, flyers and talking to other people.

A lot of people spend big money on advertising, but they overlook one form of exposure that is absolutely free! This form of exposure will help you build your business, meet new clients and recruit new staff for your company.

Let’s say you are opening a restaurant. You got finance to start up your restaurant. The money pays for everything you need to begin operating – equipment, tables, chairs, tablecloths, silverware, menus and signs. It pays for all the initial food and uniforms for your staff. But by the time you open, you have spent all your money on equipment and staff, and you have no money left for advertising.

What are you going to do? How will you let people know your restaurant even exists? Most people think, “Well, I hope people will find it.” No! People won’t just happen to wander in one day. You will go out of business if you do not find a way to bring people through your front door. What would you do?

You would have to talk to everyone you know and let them know about your restaurant. If you picked up the phone and called everyone – your immediate family, extended family, past colleagues, old high school friends, church members, old bosses, the plumber, the family doctor and dentist, mechanic, hairdressers, manicurists, friends, acquaintances from your kids’ school, teachers – you would gain an enormous amount of business.

There is a ton of missed business because people do not promote their product or service to their own list of resources. But those who do use this form of exposure often have a huge number of new and returning customers… and it’s all free!

I know of someone who used this form of exposure in a very strategic way. She is a manicurist who needed to expand her business. When she first started, she exposed her business every day. Once she got a healthy clientele, she did what most people do and stopped exposing. And as her clientele dwindled, she blamed the economy.

She was told, “You can use the economy or holiday time as an excuse and go broke like everyone else out there, or you can get back to exposing your business aggressively.” She brainstormed several ways she could expose her business and bring in new clients.

She called a bank manager (because banks typically have lots of female employees) and offered a free manicure as an incentive for the employee who got the most accounts, loan applications or department referrals. The branch manager loved it because this incentive was great for the bank, and it did not cost them a penny!

She got her name out to that entire bank branch and brought in brand new clients, all from one phone call. As a result, she increased her income by £800 in the first 30 days.

How are you exposing your business today? If you are not continually building your client base, seeking new referrals and increasing your exposure, your business will not grow. You should constantly be adding to your list of resources, meeting new people and building new relationships. Don’t be like 98% of the people who are blaming the economy, using the Easter holidays as an excuse to MISS OUT! You should always be thinking about different ways you can attract new clients you would normally not have access to, just like the manicurist did.

I would also love to hear your ideas of how to increase exposure for your business. Leave your comments for me and make sure to Like and Share today’s message.

That’s it for today, I want you to think right now, “who can I tell today about my business?” because you need to be growing your business and telling 3 new people everyday.

This is your life now make it count.

Stay blessed

Andrew 🙂

Things To Do In Holidays – FPUK.co

easter 2014

Hi Friends,
For many, Easter holidays will be starting soon, and while the kids are overjoyed about their newfound freedom, many parents are not so overjoyed. Soon you may hear the two little words every parent dreads: “I’m booorrrrred!!!”

Some parents will put their kids in front of the TV or video games for a a couple of weeks of mind-numbing screen time. Other parents will dig deep into their wallets (or simply swipe the credit card) to send their kids to workshops and amusement parks and all different kinds of activities.

But Easter Holiday fun does not have to break the bank! In fact, with a little imagination and planning, you can have the most enjoyable and affordable break ever!

Today I want to give you a few ideas to get you started on the right track. The options truly are endless!

Turn off the TV! Enjoy the beautiful weather instead. Go on a walk, visit the zoo, go camping in the backyard, or go to the swimming pool. You’ll have more fun exploring and getting some fresh air than you would sat in front of the TV!
Find inexpensive and/or free activities in your area. Attend sporting events or concerts. Find local festivals, celebrations or neighbourhood parties. Hold an Easter BBQ. Invite the neighbours kids for a water balloon fight, create an obstacle course, or stage your own Backgarden Olympics.
Give the kids a chance to learn entrepreneurial skills by setting up a car boot or garage sale or starting a dog walking business. They can even help the neighbours with garden work or housecleaning. This is a great way to teach your kids how to start and run a business, as well as how to manage their time and money.
Spend quality time together as a family. Have a Family Game Night, cook dinners together or bake cup cakes with the kids. Spend time really listening to your kids and taking this time to learn more about what makes them tick. When they look back at their Easter Holidays, these are the things they will remember.
Are you catching what I’m saying?? There are tons of ways to be fun and adventurous without spending tons of money! I would love to know what your Easter Holiday plans are. How do you plan to make this a fun, memorable and affordable  break? Leave your comments for me!

It would be a great idea to talk with your family about this, as well. Get their ideas. Find out what your kids would like to do during their break. (You may be surprised by what their idea of fun is!) Pass this message around to your friends, colleagues and people in your community in addition to Liking and Sharing today’s post! There’s always room for more ideas for inexpensive fun.

 

Thats it for today – start thinking & planning, set time aside to plan for the best for your family.

Stay Blessed

How To Prosper – FPUK.co

prosper
Hi Friends,

Today I want to visit with you about seasons of famine and seasons of plenty. You see, in life… things happen. And occasionally they spin totally out of your control. You never know when you’ll have an emergency, a sudden left turn or get stuck without a job.

Sometimes you plant the right seeds, you till, you slave and you nourish those seeds. But if you plant during a season of drought you might not be seeing the crop you worked so hard for.

The only way to see yourself through these times, is to prepare for the season of famine. If you are gluttonous or a spoiled brat addicted to pleasures, you will not survive the famine! He who tills his land will have plenty of food, But he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty. (Proverbs 28:19)

Learn to get your body off the drugs of spending on pleasures and luxuries. You need to condition yourself to live a simple a life so you can accumulate wealth while others are going broke. This will also provide you with a reserve during the seasons of famine.

What season are you currently in? If you are in seasons of plenty:

  1. Work on paying off your debt NOW, while you can.
  2. Simplify your lifestyle, sell stuff you don’t need and live on less.
  3. Don’t spend every dime you make! If you spend every dollar you make, you are not being a good steward of your seeds. But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.(Deuteronomy 8:18)

If you are in a season of famine:

  1. Don’t use credit cards to keep up a facade of financial stability. SIMPLIFY
  2. If you don’t have an income, get one now. Whiners will starve, do-ers will win (and eat).
  3. Take responsibility and make the needed changes. Stop blaming the economy, the job market, your parents or whatever!
  4. Grow your skills. Especially with people. Remember, opportunity comes from people and so does money.
  5. Stop looking for the easy way to succeed. It will lead you to a dead end!
  6. As soon as you start making money, don’t spend it! Refer to back to the tips for seasons of plenty.

Our first 10 years in business we made money and repeatedly lost it! After that we finally got smart and figured out how to make, keep and grow it.

It starts with killing your greed and gluttony. Great wealth is in the house of the righteous, But trouble is in the income of the wicked.(Proverbs 15:6) I’m not saying you can’t have fun or pleasures. I’m saying get off the drug of excess. You will massively decrease your stress once you simplify.

Don’t fear your season of famine, prepare for it! Share your thoughts with me on today’s message and don’t forget to Like and Share this with your friends or family. What season is your life in?

Have an amazing day and stay blessed

Top Tips To Success

Without a change of course, there can be no change of destination. It’s such a powerful statement, and so true. Think about it. In life, we often expect a different destination, but we stay on the same road and we are shocked when we don’t arrive at the place we say we want to arrive.

Life, success, goals, and designing our lives is really not that difficult. . For example, if your going onto a training course in Monaco South of France, it’s as simple as booking a ticket. When you’re booking that plane ticket, the first questions you have to answer are where are you leaving from, where are you going, and what are the dates?

Obviously the method of transportation you chose was an airplane. So that plane has a course, and the course leads to the destination. Say you’re leaving from Heathrow airport, and you would like to leave on May 16th, and you’d like to fly home on May 20th.
So you’ll head to the airport at Heathrow and you board the airplane. That pilot has a course. He has a fully charted course that is going to lead the plane and the 250 passengers in the plane to the destination of Monaco.

Success truly is that simple. The problem is, we come from this lottery society that expects their destination to just fall out of the sky and land on them. If the destination is becoming debt free, they think they will get lucky someday, whether it’s winning the lottery or somehow the ‘debt fairy’ is going to come take the debt away. Or people have this idea of the destination of getting a promotion in their job or becoming the VP of a company someday or running a very successful business.

That’s the destination they want, but the course they chose does not lead to that destination. Whatever your desired destination, you have to look at your course to determine whether or not you will get there. If the destination is having a harmonious, passionate, fulfilling marriage and family life, you have to make sure your course will lead you there.

Let’s go back to the pilot. What did the pilot have to learn? He had to learn how to fly. He had to learn how the airplane works. He had to learn how to land that thing in case of an emergency. He has to know how to solve problems all along the way. There are so many skills he had to learn in order to chart the course, take the plane 35,000 feet in the air, and stay on course until he gets all of the passengers safely on the ground at their destination.

It’s the same for you with paying off your debt or growing in your business or career. It’s the same for you with succeeding in marriage and raising successful kids. It’s the same for your health, or even a goal of feeding orphans or volunteering your time with the elderly. We don’t have any problems picking a destination. The issue is charting the course.

You have to chart the course and evaluate – What skills do I need in order to get to my destination? The bottom line is, without a change of course, there can be not change of destination.

Most people have chosen a course that does not lead them to where they want to go. And then, of course, there are the people who have not even picked out a destination. There are others who have charted a course, but they ran into some thunderstorms and they quit. They quit when they ran out of skill instead of gaining more skills.

It takes skill to reach your destination, and you can learn those skills. You can push through the places where you have run out of skill or you don’t know how to solve a problem or you don’t know which direction to go. You can invest into more skill so you can learn how to solve that problem. Just like a pilot runs into a thunderstorm, but he has the skill to navigate through it and exactly what course to take in order to reach the destination.

So today I want you to evaluate your course. Will it get you where you want to go? If not, you either have to change your course or change your destination. And if you change your course, what skills do you need to successfully chart out your course and to get to your destination?

If this has helped you today, please do me a quick favor. There is somebody else you know who needs to hear this. There is someone you know who may be off course in their finances, business, career, or personal life, and they are searching for direction. So go ahead and pass this message along to them. You can forward this email, or just post this link on Facebook and Twitter.

Tips to Achieving v Failing

There is a phrase we use in our office all the time. It’s a very powerful phrase that really relieves stress and pressure and brings such a glorious freedom. “Everyone needs an editor.”

If you have ever felt an expectation of perfection in your work, you know the kind of stress that comes with that. The reality is, mistakes happen. And speaking from the perspective of a boss, we know that! We expect that. We do not expect you to be perfect – we just expect you to give it your best shot.

But for some reason, most people have gotten it in their heads that they have to be perfect and get everything right the first time, every time. That expectation of perfection causes you to get stressed out and to actually make more mistakes. It creates pressure, and that pressure causes you to manage your time poorly. Excellence, efficiency, and creativity absolutely do NOT flow out of pressure.

This is where an editor comes in. To edit, by definition, means to prepare for public presentation.

When I finish writing this letter to you today, there will be not one, but TWO editors who will go line-by-line to find any spelling errors, formatting mistakes, and inconsistencies. But imagine what would happen if I got offended when they pointed out the mistakes I have made? Imagine if I refused the help of these two amazing editors. You would be reading a letter that is FULL of mistakes right now
We need each other in order to succeed. We need other people to pull the best out in us – we cannot do that on our own! We cover each other’s weaknesses. Have you heard the phrase, “Two heads are better than one”? It’s so true!

So instead of getting defensive when I get this letter back after it’s been edited and coming up with excuses for why I made those mistakes, I say, “Oh, thank you for pointing that out!”

This is exactly what we have to do in life – at work, at home, in our families and communities. Everyone needs an editor!

What does an editor do? They correct mistakes. Yes, they correct you! They point out errors and help you to adjust, adapt, or change. And why? To help you get better.

How do you respond to correction? What do you say to your “editors” at work? (That may be your boss or your manager, or even your colleagues, who correct you in order to help you and the whole team grow.) Do you get defensive, and say, “Yeah, I know!” or “You know what I meant!”? When your faults are called out, do you rebel against the one who pointed them out? Do you refuse to hear what they have to say? This is total rebellion, insubordination, and dishonor. Rebellious and insubordinate people try to hide their faults, and they are not teachable.

So do not respond to correction with dishonor. Respond with honour and gratitude, because you NEED correction in order to grow, learn, and mature. You need correction in order to get promotions, raises, and bonuses. If you want to advance in your business or career, correction must be part of your life. So welcome correction! It is the only way you will get where you want to go!

Remember that pressure of perfection I told you about earlier? Correction – having an “editor” – relieves that pressure. Perfection can only come through correction.

In order to receive correction, you must be teachable. Teachability is the key to long-lasting success, no matter what you do. When – not if – we make mistakes, whether or not we are teachable will determine if we learn from those mistakes or if we continue making the same mistakes again and again. Teachability requires you to put your ego aside and be willing to learn from the “editors” in your life.

EVERYONE needs an editor! We all make mistakes. Editors help us to correct those mistakes and to learn from them. Then, and only then, we can mature and grow to the next level, whether that is in your job, your business, your home, or your community.

Who do you know that needs to be relieved of the pressure of perfection today? Who do you know that is struggling with feeling like they always just make too many mistakes? This would be a great way to encourage those people. I know this phrase has relieved pressure here in our own office, and it has impacted me in a big way as well. So just go ahead and forward this email to your friends, family, and colleagues, or post this link on Facebook and Twitter.
