The Everything Guide to Dress Boots

The Everything Guide to Dress Boots

Just a few years ago the very idea of dress boots would have seemed out of place, if not outright weird. Not anymore.

I remember going to church when I was a kid and wearing a pair of black boots with my slacks because I couldn’t find my dress shoes. At the time my mother was furious with me but I couldn’t help to think they looked WAY better than my boring oxfords.

Apparently, that view point is now very much accepted in the fashion community. And with that said, it’s come to our attention that every gentleman should know when to wear, how to wear and to what to wear dress boots with.

The 6 Habits of Millionaire Entrepreneurs

The 6 Habits of Millionaire Entrepreneurs

1. Start with what you have

habits of millionaire entrepreneurs

You may think that in order to start a successful business you need to have everything in order; a business loan, an office, a staff of in house marketers and maybe even an assistant. Well sorry to burst your bubble but it rarely happens that way.

Take a note from Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine, who started in his kitchen with a small 1,000 dollar loan from his mom. He put the first magazine together himself, by hand, and didn’t put a date on it because he didn’t know if there would be a second issue. 

2. Be Consistent

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier

The problem with success is that it doesn’t happen overnight. Without being consistent in your efforts you miss out on your opportunity of success. Pat Flynn creator of Smartpassiveincome.com is the poster boy for consistency and posts his monthly earnings online every month (October earnings $120,217.15).

Being that most of his monthly income comes from his daily continuous efforts in digital marketing, search engine optimization, back linking, and pod casts; He would never have gotten where he is today without consistency.

 

3. Work smart, but never be afraid to work hard

The main goal of any business person is to make money. Making money fast through get rich quick schemes never work out. At best the money you make is at the cost of exploiting someone else’s ignorance and at worst it could mean doing something illegal.
