Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Turning Setbacks Into Greenbacks

Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. Get a copy today…you’ll be glad you did! One of the keys to turning setbacks into greenbacks is to remember the last time we were in a tough economic situation. What did we do then? Remember what we did to get through that experience and just do it again. But do MORE of it! Think back and remind yourself of past successes and past experiences.

I often think about my first summer as a speaker. I was brand new and didn’t know much about the speaking business. I had been speaking at schools during the school year, but when the school year ended in June, I didn’t have any work and therefore, didn’t have any money. I was definitely in an economic downturn. I didn’t know how I was going to pay my bills, so I got on the phone and literally went through the Yellow Pages asking people if they had a need for a speaker. I finally got two small contracts. Somehow, I made it through the summer and I learned how to survive. The next time things got tight, I was better prepared to handle them! Remind yourself about the successes of the past and use them to empower you as you go forward into the future.
