Working for yourself is, for many, the ultimate dream. You have the ability to create your own hours, your own lifestyle and create limitless income opportunities. While this is all great, it really only works if you do. Sometimes, all that freedom can get you sidetracked – especially when things get tough in your business. There’s no boss hanging over you to make sure you’re working, and the ability to justify everything is a pretty easy convenience.



1. Read Daily


2. Write Down Your Goals Frequently



3. Work On One Task Related to Your “Big Goal” Daily



4. Have a Bucket List of Tasks

5. Use the 5 Minute Rule

Your Numbers Guy is here to help!


I know personally what it is like to stay motivated and sometimes you need some tools/tips to get back on track.    Focusing on your business is important and I can help you with worry free support on the numbers end of things. 


With decades of experience in finance, supply chain, and process improvement I too have ventured into the world of small business and self-employment.   My ultimate goals are to offer my experience and skills to entrepreneurs/small business where you have access to a professional CPA at affordable rates.   At the basic level bookkeeping & accounting is available but the services we offer are much more than that.     


I would look forward to having a conversation with you.     Let's meet!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

    I pay a quick visit day-to-day some web pages and sites to read content, however this webpage gives feature based writing.

    Please let me know if you're looking for a author for your site. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Regards!
