Flying Scooter

Will this Levitating Hover Scooter be a high-flying success?

  • $17k
  • Top Speed of 15 mi/hr
  • 5 Minutes to learn how to use it
  • Glides over level, solid ground only (free of debris)

I find this novelty funny and fascinating at the same time, but at $17,000??? What do you think? Would you launch a company with this product?Levitating Hover Scooter

Monday 9 a.m.

Dominic MillerI’ve discovered a powerfully inspirational film site: Monday 9 a.m. – that explores humanity, creativity and the questions that arise our of living and creating.

This week features a film about Dominic Miller, Sting’s guitarist.


What does art, a philosopher and a life coach have in common? They all leave you with questions to ponder.

These are the questions from this film:

  • What happens when you get to where you believe you should be?
  • Does everything start with a relationship between two things –you and a somebody or a something?
  • What is your opportunity to recognize this and to create a ‘story’?
  • Is it your responsibility to do so?
  • What ‘story’ is out there waiting to be told by you?
  • Are you courageous enough to live with ‘the not knowing’?
  • How naked are you prepared to be?

Ten percent

“To be like me is very simple,” said the richest man in Babylonia. “All you have to understand is that a tenth of what you earn is yours.”

“That makes no sense,” answered the young man. “All that I earn is mine.”

“Don’t you pay the tailor? Don’t you pay the baker every day? You can’t live even for a day without spending. You pay everybody except yourself. From now on, pay yourself a tenth of your salary. Don’t forget that the paths of wealth are magical and strange; if you take good care of that tenth, one day it will reward all your efforts.” — by Paulo Coelho


It was true in Babylonian times and it is true today:

  • Remember to pay yourself first.
  • Remember to save 10%.

Come Alive

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” — Howard Thurman

This is a good reminder to move towards what energizes us in our business. The rest will follow!

Prosperity Declaration

I would like to urge you to do a quick 2 to 3 minute experiment. This is an invitation to create a simple declaration of how you want your business to be.

Here is my personal example:

“I, Bill Baren, solemnly publish and declare that I shall build a Entrepreneur Prosperity Program that generates a profit of over $150,000 per year and moves hundreds of businesses and entrepreneurs towards more money, more time and more energy. I declare that I shall do whatever it takes to make this happen and will give myself all the support I need to make it happen.”

This exercise only takes a few minutes, but it can create a lot of energy you need to take our business to the next level. Declare this with certainty and share this declaration with as many people as possible. I invite you to do this today.

I want to thank Christian Michelson for this idea. This is what he wrote:

“If the colonial rebels who wrote the “Declaration of Independence”, didn’t send it to anyone, it would NOT have had any effect. By sharing it with the King of England, a whole chain of events went into play.

The written word has power. I know most people will never actually write a declaration (or type it) and send it to anyone. Why? Because most people don’t actually DO a lot. But, there are a few of you who will. These are the people that usually make things happen in the world.

If you want to be the kind of person that gets results, why not go for it?”
