This week I want you to listen carefully to what I have to say because it’s all about success for you.
I want you to pick one thing that I talked about here and take action on it, because this is about success and taking action.
It’s easy and even enjoyable to read blogs and watch the videos online. We learn the new things and we’re tempted to say, “I know this new thing, I’m moving forward!” But taking action is really what moves us forward.

This is one of those things. Continue reading →
When you’re searching for something I want you to search as if you expect to find it.
If you’re in Loss Prevention or Security work, you probably understand how this applies in the physical world. If you’re looking for a weapon, look as if you expect to find one. Don’t say “There’s probably nothing here. This is probably a ‘good enough’.” Search as if you expect to find a weapon.
