I was watching this new show the other day called “Fashion House” and I could not help but notice the gorgeous actress named Michelle Miller, her real name is Natalie Martinez. Natalie plays a sexy dress designer, who’s going through a stressful divorce. A wealthy young man, who could have any girls he wants, becomes obsessed with Michelle (Natalie). He meets her, she likes him, but she quickly notices that he’s nervous. Natalie asks him “Why are you nervous?” This puts him in a bind, but he says the right thing to her and ends up getting a date with her.
Next, open up your list. Let’s say you say you want a man or woman that has zero children. Think about what it is that is stopping you from dating someone with a child. Look at this from different perspectives. What if the person has almost everything that you want in a person yet they have a child. Would that be a deal breaker? If so, why? Remember, you don’t have all the information when you first meet someone to know what their circumstances are. You could be pushing the very person you are searching for away. Be cautious in your deal breakers.
I have set myself a similar goal, and here’s how i answer the question: I will make an effort every day to build my business so that i can achieve the success I am seeking, and i will not allow any setback or obstacle to deter me from my goal. I know that i will encounter problems along the way, and that there is a solution for every problem I run into. And the good news is that these problems are not as difficult to solve as they seem at first. I will achieve success and every day I’m taking steps to real my goals. I will periodically reassess and reset my goals as needed until my ultimate goal is reached, and I will not stop until I have achieved that goal.
Having said all of this, if you happen upon a shop for sale be observant and make a few visits before you know much. It will tell you a lot. I have been involved in a lot of discussions about buying an existing coffee shop. You have to take into effect the age of the business and the time left on the lease (w/renewal options). That is where half of the worth is at. There is always the case that someone may see value where others do not as well.
Here’s the scenario I envision. I check out an e-book reader (for free, of course) from the service counter. The e-book reader is connected wirelessly to the bookstore’s network. I walk over to the computer at the end of a bookshelf or the touch screen panel situated in a book rack. I search titles, check out authors, look at covers, and find a book that seems interesting. I punch in the number of the e-book reader I’m carrying, and the first 40 or 50 pages of the book are downloaded to the reader. I take the e-book reader to a soft chair, hook one leg over the armrest, and read. Maybe I find 10 books that look interesting. I download the excerpt from each.
Because of their shear volume, these gifts that were so lovingly purchased lose some of their intended appeal. So what are some creative and frugal alternatives that every teacher will appreciate?
For starters, the questions that was being asked were more about my personality and hobbies. There was not one question asked about the type of woman I was looking for. I didn’t hold anything back and was completely honest. I submitted everything they asked for and went to bed. I did not think anything else about it. That is until I got an email saying that i had a match. I was astounded at the idea. I was set up on a date for two days later.
