Are You Leveraging Enough?

Reading time: minute(s)

As an entrepreneur and business coach, I have always understood the importance of leveraging in my day to day activities. 

I realized that I don’t have all the answers, I cannot do or think of everything myself and I don’t have enough time in a day. 

So I have to leverage others.  We all do.

But also, I am in a business that is built on the leveraging concept that is really based on that old saying by John D. Rockefeller, the world’s first billionaire.  That saying certainly applies today as it did 100 years ago.

“I would rather earn 1% off of 100 people’s efforts than from 100% of my own effort.” 

You see what he was getting at is that your time in a day is fixed, you are limited in what you can do by yourself but your potential is limitless if you leverage. 

Leverage is key to achieving your goals, whether they are business or personal ones.  You can multiply your impact and your wealth potential many times through leverage.

When I invested in real estate properties, I had to leverage others, their expertise, their guidance, their experiences, etc., to achieve my goals.  

I didn’t know everything and I certainly did not have the time to fully educate myself.  And why reinvent the wheel when these people had already learned from their experiences. 

So I leveraged them.  It’s the key to passive residual income & a freedom lifestyle.

It is the same in my network marketing business. I leverage my team and teach them how to use leverage so that we all succeed.  It really is the model that Rockefeller promoted.

This past week a good friend stayed with me here in Puerto Vallarta.  

While she was here I was able to leverage her knowledge on personal issues that saved me so much time. 

Travel, financial and product information were just a few things I was able to glean from her vast knowledge and experience.

So are you leveraging enough in your day to day activities… or are you trying to do it all yourself?  

Don’t’ be afraid to reach out and ask others.  I have found that so many people will provide the help you need to get you started in the right direction and save you so much time and effort.

If you want to discuss more about leveraging and how to build a freedom lifestyle, I would love to talk to you about it.  Book a time here.
