I got this list in the mail from a friend of mine, Mike Stromsoe, who owns an insurance agency coaching program called the “Unstoppable Profit Producer Program”.  The point is simple…if you want your business to start producing great profit, you have to stop running it like an employee and start approaching it like an entrepreneur.  After all, if you don’t run your business with the mindset of an entrepreneur, all you have created for yourself is a JOB, but without the guaranteed paycheck and without the ability to walk away:)  It’s a daily choice of mindset…choose wisely!
