Hidden Mysteries Week – The Formula for Wealth Part III

Hidden Mysteries Week - via Dan Brown and The Lost SymbolThis week, we are exploring Dan Brown’s hidden formula for wealth (as interpreted by me) in his Best Selling book The Lost Symbol (you can read yesterday’s post to get caught up).

Yesterday, we explored the progression we uncovered that says: P→P→P→W

Today we’ll consider that the hidden formula is actually closer to P+P+P=W

Although, I think the real fun comes tomorrow!

Instead of the very linear, and obvious progression that we could glean from Peter Solomon’s wise words to his son, Zachary, as he passes along the family fortune – let’s look into something a little deeper. Something that resembles the concept of SYNERGY – when the outcome is greater than the sum of its parts.

So, in this formula, when I combine Productivity, Prosperity, and Philanthropy, they become Wealth – greater than the sum of its parts. Each one inextricable from the equation.

A tad ho-hum? Perhaps. But, we’ll finish with the punch line tomorrow. Can you see it?

In the meantime, I’m going to go work on the Productivity part of the equation. What IS it about summertime?

Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a LegacyAs I write the book – The Irreverent Sales Girl’s Guide To Wild Success – I find myself a little un-done by how arrogant it is for me to take this on.

After all, I am no Hemingway

I find myself humbled by REAL authors, and want to throw in the towel.

But, then someone reminded me…

The book is not about me, it is not FOR me, it is FOR all the people who have given me so much…invested in me to make me great. It would be a shame not to offer that to the world.

So, if only one person reads the book (me), it will be an honor to give it back.

And, I invite you to do the same…

What is YOUR legacy? What should you leave behind to share with the world what so many great people have given you and for all the work YOU have done?

We only grow on each other’s shoulders

So, now what do YOU see to go do to leave your legacy? Your mark deserves to be left behind, and we all will profit from your efforts. Perhaps you will, too!

Love your legacy UP!

“How to be the best version of you…” SERIOUSLY???

"How to be the best version of yourself" SERIOUSLY???Alright, my lovelies, I must prepare you for a rant.

The title of my blog post tonight was the subject line of an email I got today.


Yes. We all need to invest a bit from time-to-time in ourselves. But, PLEASE…how many people are trying to sell me stuff about being the best version of me? Promises unkept. Time wasted. Money thrown down the tubes.

Please remember who you REALLY are…

You don’t need someone’s “warmed-over-porridge” advice about how to do common sense things to make your life work.

You know if you’re doing the right things. You know when you aren’t. And you also know how to ask, in your darkest hours, for the things you desire. Don’t give them away to posers.

Inside, you know your calling and your purpose

Follow that! Be brave enough to follow that and stop being distracted by thinking others know more than you about how your life is to play out.

I am taking my own advice tonight

I have three things to do this year in my business:

1) Close my quota
2) Write my book
3) Earn my income goal

That is all

I may win, lose, or draw, but I will not be distracted by people trying to tell me how to be the “best version of me”. How would they know?

Did anyone know how to tell Madonna, Michael Jordan, or Lincoln (as examples) how to be the Best Version of Them? I guarantee they would have gotten it wrong.

Go boldly forth …

and be exactly who you know you are called to be.

Love your own path UP!

If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse!

If you're not getting better, you're getting worse! Sadly, as much as we’d like to believe it….there is no such thing as STATUS QUO.

You are either improving, or you are not keeping up!

Make getting better a fun game, play it like a kid on the playground. It’s a game, but play it like your life depends on it! That’s where the miracles open up.

If you think you’ve made it, you’re cooked!

Geez, Oh PEET! What a panic!

What a Panic! I had a GREAT BIG call today with one of the Elephants I am tracking.

We seem to be getting so close, yet we are HEAD-TO-HEAD with a fierce and competent competitor.

It’s all I’ve been able to think about lately.

I’ve been getting ATTACHED. 

I realized this during my workout today. Here I am enjoying a nice peaceful morning on the Elliptical and all I can think about is this PANIC I am having about landing this elephant.


And then, I thought, “What Would the Irreverent Sales Girl Do?”

And, it came to me. She would

1) Relax – all the prep is done, the meeting is prepared, all the right people are attending
2) Realize that I am offering the best solution (I really am)
3) Trust that they are smart and capable of getting what they need and not being bamboozled by me or others
4) Remember to focus not only on the elephant, but also on all the great business that is trying to close
5) Remember that if I do not close this deal, it doesn’t mean I can’t reach my highest goals – it is all working in my favor
5) BREATHE – and enjoy the exercise

I took her advice (*wink*)

I went into the meeting calm, in control, committed, professional. I let THEM talk.

They said all the right things. They even said “wow” a couple of times. I could hear their heads nodding.

They make their decision on Tuesday

It will be us or it will be them. Either way I am going to CRUSH it this year. Because that is what I am committed to. This deal is one of many.

Love yourself UP!

Love ’em up!

Love 'em UP!I get comments from time-to-time – people ask me – “What does that even mean? ‘Love ’em up!’?”

Here’s what it means in short.

As a salesperson, you will do WAY better when you love your support staff, your managers, and your customers UP!

As a spouse, you will do WAY better when you love your spouse, children, in-laws UP!

As a business owner, you will do WAY better to love your peers, your advisors, (and even sometimes your competition) UP!

When you love ’em UP! – you come from your most awesomesauce self. And then, magic starts to happen.

Love ’em UP! = MAGIC for everybody.

That is all.

Love ’em UP!

Are you more important?

Are you more important?Who do you measure yourself against?

How are you measuring up?

I invite you, for one moment, to take stock of the people who value you as important.

The world “seems” to say that if you are vastly wealthy and famous, that you are more important (I am NOT saying that you shouldn’t be vastly wealthy and famous – you should if you want to be!)

What I am saying is – It is possible that you haven’t taken stock of who you REALLY are. For yourself, for your peeps, for the world.

There lies GREAT value in the person who likes to sit behind the scenes and listen. The engineer who builds the bridge and never has his name engraved on it – he/she holds great value to all who pass.

YOU are important if you care. Even if you care about the fact that you aren’t doing enough – It is a signal to you that you ARE important (right?)

You are here to carve out your place in the world. You may not realize it, but EVERYONE who sees you let someone in to a traffic jam, who watches you give a dollar to someone who needs it, sees you pick up a piece of litter in a bathroom…IT MATTERS.

If you want to achieve INVALUABLE wealth in this world, keep giving, every chance you get. It is noticed.

And, you will be famous among those who matter. And you will enjoy immeasurable wealth.

Love ’em UP!

HELP! How do YOU manage business travel?

I just got back to my office from a week of business travel.

Some of the meetings I had were VERY worth it – but there was a lot of “wasted” time.

In all of the years of selling, I have never figured out how to keep all of the balls in the air. Getting home, I am a teensy bit overwhelmed.

So, I want to hear. How do YOU keep the routines moving and catch up when you are back?

Using the THREE Fundamentals of networking to sell!

Using the FIVE Fundamentals of networking to sell! A good friend of mine emailed me a FANTASTIC sales training video today. It sparked my imagination and I have added THREE things to my sales process – that I have learned about great networking.

Wondering how to go from 5 to 6 figures in sales? Check out this Free eBook:

I started using these last week and I’ve gotten FIVE really strong leads from this new approach!

1) EVERY TIME I am talking with a prospect or a client, I am looking to see who I can connect them with in their industry or their town. Somone who I know and would make a difference for the person on the other end of the phone. I become a connector, a thought leader, and a valuable resource.

2) EVERY TIME I am talking with a prospect or a client I am reminding myself: I AM ON A MISSION TO SERVE OTHERS.

3) EVERY TIME I am talking with a prospect or client, I ask “Who do you know that I should be talking to?” “Who do you know who can use my help?” (And then I be quiet. I wait for their response).


Thanks, Lynne, for the video!

 Love your peeps UP!

Wanna reinvent a part of your life?

Wanna reinvent a part of your life?Thanks to Vidette Vanderweide for the vulnerable interview with me today about her powerful steps to reinvention.

Ever heard that tiny voice inside – nudging you to make a change? Or, maybe it’s bigger than that – maybe you’ve gotten sick – maybe you’ve lost something important to you and you don’t know where to turn. Perhaps you just find yourself a little bit “off” all the time?


Wondering how to go from 5 to 6 figures in sales? Check out this Free eBook:

On our call, Vidette outlined the six steps to reinvention.I’ve included them here – AND I highly ENCOURAGE you to get her book S.O.U.L. Mama. The book is page-turner. Vidette doesn’t “tell” you HOW to reinvent. She shows you how she did. And, it isn’t always pretty!

Order the book here:

The Six Steps to Reinvention:

  1. Reconnect – Reconnect with who you are and those dreams and desires you have (Maybe it’s been years since you’ve remembered them.)
  2. Reframe – Release old behaviors and replace with new ones to encourage a new paradigm to emerge.
  3. Receive – Receive new visions, new thoughts, new habits
  4. Reinvent – your daily practices – especially those that are no longer serving you
  5. Revolutionize – find your unique gifts and talents and bring them to the world
  6. Refine – What in your new paradigm is not working? Tweak it. Play with it. Refine it until it works the way you dreamed

We will post a recording of the VaVaVaVoom (Voyeruistic, Vicarious, Virtual) Conversation soon!

Learn more about Vidette at You’ll be glad you did.

Love your life UP!
