‘Gimme Ten Bucks’

When it comes to business, you can learn a lot of great one-liners from your kids. Like my son, Frank, who loves to approach me and say, “Gimme ten bucks.”

“For what,” I ask.

He then searches his mind and looks around the house for something to sell me.

A couple weeks ago I was sitting with him at the kitchen table – watching him eat his Cheerios. I picked up a copy of Entrepreneur Magazine. On the cover, the headline read: YOUNG MILLIONAIRES.

I showed it to Frank. While taking a spoonful of oats into his mouth he says, “Today at school the teacher asked us what we’re going to be when we grow up. I told everyone, ‘I’m going to be a millionaire.”

Forget being a fireman, a policeman, a mailman, an astronaut and all the typical things kids said when I was a kid. Nope – go straight for the result.

I smiled when he said this, letting him know he CAN and WILL accomplish this goal – (without my financial help by the way). Yet, all across America, I can just imagine how many parents would curse and condemn their child for saying such a thing.

Not me.

Yes, I will teach my son that it isn’t just the m-oney. It’s doing what you love. It’s doing what you are passionate about and combining it with a decision to prosper from doing it.

I’m teaching my son that the “something for nothing” mindset is destructive to society at large. So you can jokingly say, “Gimme ten bucks – but you better deliver something in exchange for it.”

By the way, I take great delight in telling you that my son also grabbed a copy of my new book, 101 Ways to Magnetize Money. He handed it to me with a pen in hand and said, “Daddy, can you autograph this book for me.” I stopped everything I was doing and said, “I sure CAN.” For the past two days I’ve seen him going through the book, reading various sections. Such a sight warms my heart.

It warms it so much that I’m writing you this email late at night. A much better idea than watching tee-vee, I think. And a reminder, perhaps, to invest in my new book and CD program by going to here.

Also, while I’m on the 10 Bucks Theme – I’m also going to allow a handful of people the opportunity to test the first night of my 4-Hour Workday Seminar for… 10 Bucks.

All for now.
