your 7th sense by Bill Bartmann

  The other day I came across an article written by Bill Bartmann. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Who’s Bill Bartmann?” A few short years ago he was a billionaire. That’s billionaire, with a B. At one point he was making $500,000 A DAY. But those days are long gone. With his fortune gone,…

Phil Jackson’s reign comes to an end

Ever since high school I’ve been big into basketball. I still remember the first NBA game that I ever watched, a Christmas Day game – the Chicago Bulls vs. the Detroit Pistons, a heated rivalry back in the day.

iSucceed secrets for the average joe and jane

I know it seems rather strange for me to consider my own book a success story but it has been a bit of a rollercoaster. First off, I never intended to write a book. I was listening to one of my mentor’s audio sessions (Jim Rohn’s “How to Use a Journal”) in which he said…

understanding how money works sets you up for success

Money makes the world go round. Or at least that’s how the saying goes. I heard that expression growing up but I never realized how true it was till a few years ago when I started studying money itself. Not how to make it. Not how to borrow it. Simply how our money system itself…
