I just came back from a convention.

I picked up BIG-TIME on NINE words that I overheard.

"I THOUGHT I WAS SAVING BY NOT BUYING ONE"

You can relate this sentence to:

  • Not buying the heat efficient windows
  • Keeping the old car too long
  • Keeping the old computer too long
  • Purchasing the cheaper product and dissatisfying your customers and possibly losing them
  • By keeping the old 100 PSI instead of the 300 PSI
  • By buying the cheaper machine with no heater
  • By closing your mind on a truck mount
  • By not believing in dry cleaning or encapsulation
  • Etc., etc.,

You get what I mean...

All of the above will hold back your future dreams and bigger profits.

So often I don't go to conventions because I say that I can't afford to. Upon my return I always say that I can't afford not to go.

You mind is a muscle...it needs flexing and to be kept open.

Most people out there you can learn from.

Isn't it funny how we all know what horse would win the race after the horse prances over the finish line.

We all gamble in life hoping our last decission isn't a costly one, sometimes not buying that new Ninja can turn out as bad as making the purchase in the first place.

I just came back from seeing an old customer that is offering me to take a $ 10,130 /month maintenance contract.........while most would jump at it, I'm debating that it just might cost me $ 11,000/month to service it in the long run................WHO KNOWS
