At Calvert Marketing Group we would
like to wish all dad's a great day!
Many of us are blessed to be have raised by great fathers. Those of us that have all believe our dad's are the best, but mine really is the #1 Dad in the world , just like yours . My dad and I have opposite personalities in many ways, but he has always lead by example in every area of his life. Over the years, he has always been my #1 fan and supported me in whatever I wanted to do. Sports, Magic Shows, Soap Box Derby Races and much more, he was there for everything. Today dad is the CFO at Calvert Marketing Group and if you have called our office over the years, there is a good chance you have spoke with him.
The older I become the more every holiday means to me, not just holidays, ever day for that matter. My daughters are my pride and joy. All fathers probably wish they could go back and do things differently, I certainly do. They have all turned our so well and are spending their life with professions that sow into the lives of other people so their mom and I must have done a few things right. (Yes, mostly their mom) However at this point in my life I just want to make the most of every opportunity I have with them, and give them the love, support and encouragement I have always received from my parents.
When it is all said and done it is the positive impact that you make on other people and your family members is what really matters! Make today a special day!
HAPPY FATHERS DAY!
Those of you that read this blog regularly or attend or training webinars have heard me say dozens of time "Time is the Most Valuable Asset any of us have". I ran across this excellent article today and wanted to share it with you.
Last weekend I saw Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and thought it was a pretty entertaining movie. It’s a sequel to the 1987 movie Wall Street and picks up when Gordon Gekko is released from prison. I won’t go into detail about the movie’s plot, but Gekko definitely loves money and isn’t afraid to sacrifice almost everything for it.
I was taken back by one line that Gekko had in the movie: “Time is the greatest asset you have.” If you watch the movie, you’ll see that Gekko isn’t a super sensitive guy and for him to recognize that time is the greatest asset you have on this earth, it makes you step back and think about the things that really matter.
I love talking, thinking, creating, and building businesses that succeed financially. Money is a great tool to advance projects and to support causes in life. But once we make money our main focus in life, that’s when problems can arise. The tough part is that the problems come gradually and the important things get pushed back slowly. Not too many businessmen make a decision in just one day to make their work a priority over their family, but the small choices made everyday can lead to that very outcome – even if they think their priorities are still straight.
Allocating time to the highest priorities in your life takes a concentrated effort. It’s easy to unintentionally let important things like faith, family, and relationships slip by while you’re attention is focused on things like work and becoming financially secure.
I think this verse is a great reminder of how we should prioritize our time
No, this is not a MLM Training, other than the fact the leaders are never willing to gloss over things that don't make sense.
Sometimes, you just have to stop and ask yourself what is the world coming to?
I am glad that people have the guts to ask the people at Google, what in the world are you thinking …. IT'S EASTER SUNDAY!

Have a great week.
Many complex challenges really have simple solutions. It is normally not knowing what to do that is the problem, it is doing what we already know to do.
I received this email today.
You have probably already received it. It apears to be flying around the Internet right now and creating alot of buzz on social media websites. "Ignorance at it's highest level is to do what we have always done expecting different results"
That goes for congress as well as us as individuals!
START OF EMAIL Let us all speak up! Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling: "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it.
That was in 1971… before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2011 1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office. 2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose. 3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do. 4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. 5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. 6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people. 7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work. If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is time. THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
