It Begins With You

Greetings and Salutations from Michael The Traveling Trucker. Let me remind you that in your world EVERYTHING begins and ends with you. I know this puts a lot of pressure on some, It’s OK. You were built to succeed.


I hear you ask where do I start. My response is have you written your dreams down on paper? Have you decided what type of online business you want to pursue? Do you have money set aside to fund your business-monthly? Have you done your due diligence in researching companys you might want to work with?

How much time can you afford toward your business? Will you make a commitment for at least 1 year? A good business idea may seem hard to come by, but with some planning and preparation, you can easily launch a small business to supplement your income — or become your own full-time boss.

Your business should be cheap to start. Maybe you only need to purchase a website domain. The best small business ideas are based online and can be carried out from your personal computer.

Nothing draws clients to you faster than the power of social proof — the phenomenon by which others look for external clues to your credibility. If you build a reputation as an expert in your field. This can be by writing articles, creating videos. doing workshops. You’re far more likely to make people excited to collaborate if you’re perceived as interesting.

Winning business is hard, but it gets a lot easier if clients are seeking you out. By building a public reputation, power mapping your way to coveted clients, mitigating perceived risk and making yourself interesting to be around, you’re taking a major step toward attracting the business you want.

Don’t Forget About Branding Your Business. The definition of a brand is a name or a term, a design or a symbol, or some other feature that distinguishes an organization or a product from its competitors. The keys to branding your business begin and end with who you serve!

The right story for your business is never just about the product — the widget. It’s about the deeper story beneath the product, the company, and the team. Within each of us is an obstacle to overcome, and that is the raw material of your story. Once you connect to that story, you’ve set the stage for your team, your business, your revenues to go through the roof. 

Great Leadership comes down to one thing… great casting! Don’t cast yourself in the wrong role! Don’t cast them in the wrong role! 

Will you play the part the world needs you to play?

What would the play of your life look like? 

Your Stage, Your Life. Make it the best ever. You only have so many years in this life, make them count on your terms.

Sharing The Responsibilty

Greetings from Michael The Traveling Trucker. How do you share the resposibility for successful communication?


The process of communication isn’t complete without both speaker and a audience. Speakers can send messages, but if the listeners don’t do their part by listening and providing feedback, the process is incomplete.

The last webinar you listened to was who and what was the topic? Effective listening benefits both speakers and audience members. By listening before the speech, the speaker can pick up the audiences needs. Great speakers have this trait before each webinar by opening up the room early.

There are four types of listening. content, critical, empathic, and appreciative listening. Content listening helps you understand the speakers message. Critical listening helps you both undertsand and evaluate the meaning of the message. Empathic listening helps you understand the speakers feelings and viewpoint. Appreciative listening helps you enjoy the speakers message and delivery.

The five factors of listening are: attending, interpreting, remembering, evaluating, and responding. We all must have these skills if we are to move forward in our businesses. This should help you in all areas of your life.

In our business world we have two people who do an outstanding job on presenting webinars. Rob Gehring and Janet Legere. These leaders fill our hearts and minds with practical teaching which should be put into your businesses immediately.

We all have a part in the big picture so learn these skills and perfect them over time. Do you believe you could do a webinar? If your answer is yes, have you done one. If no is your answer, why not? Pick a topic, research it, then show your findings. Easy peasy.

I have not done one yet. I have a vast video collection on Youtube, which goes with my blogs.

The fact that you’ve failed is proof you are still a work in progress. What’s more important is that you got up. Failure may look like a fact, but it’s just an opinion.

What does it mean to be in a community? A group of people with a common characteristic or interest living together within a larger society, a body of persons of common and especially professional interests.

Simply put, a community is a group of like-minded individuals who share an identity-forming narrative. In other words, it’s a friendship between different people — or a social unit — with a commonality such as norms, place, religion, values, customs, or identity. 

To be clear, community is not a place, building, or organization — it’s both a feeling and a set of relationships among people. Members of a community often have a sense of trust, safety, belonging, and caring for each other.

With that said I would be honored to have you in our community. Ask any question or share any idea you may have. I look forward to our 1st conversation. Have a blessed day ,week , month, year.

Will You Listen To A Billionaire

What a great time I had learning from the 6th richest man in the world. His insight is breath taking.

Michael The Traveling Trucker says never quit no matter your age.


Warren Buffet started investing when he was 10 years old and by age 30, he had amassed $1 million( in todays dollars, approximately $10 million.) Not to shabby– but a far cry from 116 billion.

By age 50, Warren was worth $300 million. After the age of 50, his wealth increased to 376 million, he fulfilled his dream of becoming a billionaire. Total assets of 1.4 billion. After completing 66 years of life, he earned 17 billion.

So what does Warren teach that we should listen to. Glad You Asked.

Tip One: Write clearly and second speak clearly. Warren says anyone can increase their value by 50% by LEARNING. If you have knowledge, yet not able to convey your point clearly to others, then your knowledge remains ZERO.

Invest in continous learning. Knowledge is the ultimate asset. Ok, pay attention: spend part of your day READING, LEARNING, and STAYING INFORMED IN VARIOUS MARKETS AND INDUSTRIES.

Invest in YOUR self-improvement. Building self-confidence and continously improving your skills. When you invest in yourself, you gain self-confidence, boldness, and resilience to face challenges head on and overcome them when you experience setbacks.

Invest in knowing your strengths. Understanding your unique capabilities can help you focus on areas where you excel.

This next one is HUGE: Invest in a support group. There is true value in seeking out MENTORS, PARTNERS, and FRIENDS who inspire and challenge you. My two mentors Rob Gehring and Janet Legere have the insight through time, experience and building successful businesses to impart this knowledge to others around the globe.

Most people don’t really listen though. They want to do it their way , which can be a disaster waiting to happen. Listen to what they say. Practice what they do and then fine tune it to fit your personality.

This is the BIGGEST ONE of ALL. INVEST IN DOING WORK YOU LOVE. When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work. Doing what you LOVE is a major contributor to true happines in LIFE.

Life is fast, ongoing and able to set you free. Embrace who you are, and who through improvement, can be all you were ment to be.

So what is next for you Dear Reader? I invite you to join me in the venture of YOUR lifetime. Click here to invest in yourself.

I look forward to working with you. Click NOW and I’ll see you on the inside.

Reading, Writing and Speaking clearly is your GOAL

Thoughts to Actions

How to turn your thoughts to actions sounds simple, but the truth is most people NEVER EVER put their thoughts into action unless it is self-centered on only their needs. I know this may be harsh but from my personal experience I was that self-centered person.

Welcome all, Michael The Traveling Trucker shares tips to become a people person.


“Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habit.” ~ Laozi

“Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We have over 6,000 thoughts a day, many of which are ignored, partly because we consider them “invalid.”

Thoughts become more consequential for judgment and action as their perceived validity emerging from a wide range of variables, including incidental factors, is increased.

There are two types of validation (affective and cognitive) .Cognitive validation takes place when people are certain that their beliefs are correct. Mention:

How to Manage Your Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors

New research helps explain how we can manage our brains and achieve our goals.

The only things we can control in life are our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. If we can manage those, we can achieve our goals and gain total success.

When I quit drinking I had to have a mindset each day not to drink. I did this each day for over 2 years to achieve the goal of not drinking. I had to apply this to quitting smoking. This mindset was for 30 days and on the 31st day this habit was broken . I still had to walk out each day with the mindset SMOKE FREE.

If we know how our minds work, we can be intentional about influencing our thinking and feeling patterns. We can evaluate reality more clearly, make better decisions and improve our ability to achieve our goals. 

How do our minds work? The terms “autopilot system” and “intentional system” come to mind. Let me explain. The autopilot system corresponds to our emotions and intuitions. Its cognitive processes take place mainly in the amygdala and other parts of the brain that developed early in our evolution. This system guides our daily habits, helps us make snap decisions and reacts instantly to dangerous life-and-death situations.

The Intentional System reflects our rational thinking and centers around the prefrontal cortex: the part of the brain that evolved more recently. The thoughts and actions we do habitually through time determines our destiny. I might fall and get a few bruises along the way, but if my habit is to get up one more time than I fall, my destiny will be one of success.

If I think positive thoughts and take positive actions toward my goals, my destiny can be one of joyful and uplifting, with moments of gleefulness. I might fall and get a few bruises along the way, but if my habit is to get up one more time than I fall, my destiny will be one of success.

Positive Mindset Is Vital To Keep You Balanced.

What Is Mental Clarity

Would you like to start each day with a clear focus on what you want to accomplish?  I know I would. Michael The Traveling Trucker with today’s hot topic.


Would you like to know that what you accomplish today will be accomplishments that meet your needs, desires, and life goals? Most of us have a mental description in our heads of what we would like to accomplish, yet without direction, daily game plan ( on paper) our thoughts get scrambled and we lose focus. So how do we get the Mental Clarity we desire?

Go for a Walk

Any form of exercise will clear your mind, but one of the most effective ways is to go for a walk- NATURES way of course. The very act of moving will put your mind into a more positive state, which will help you think things through more effectively.

Lemon Water in the Morning

Began by drinking lemon water every morning and you will be surprised how you will feal healthier, mentally clearer, and awake within twenty minutes.  When you feel healthy physically, you also feel mentally healthy.

Our mind and body work together. If we are physically ill, we don’t feel good mentally, and vice versa. When we feel energetic and alive, we feel fantastic, and our emotional feelings lift.

Plan Your Day the Night Before

When you start and plan your day the night before, you begin the day knowing what you want to accomplish. Most people never think about what they want to accomplish. 

Look at the Big Picture

Another way you can achieve mental clarity is by looking at the big picture. Have you ever felt like you were just ticking boxes? I know I have. We miss focus on what’s important and begin working on other peoples projects instead of our own.

Identify What Is Important to You

If you don’t know where you are going, how will you ever know when you get there? If you want to live your life to its maximum potential, decide what is important to you and do everything in your power to make it happen. When you know what you want and why you want it, you are 80% of the way there. The remaining 20% is the effort you put in to achieve it. The 80/ 20 rule is very accurate.

5 Key Self-Care Areas: These are sleep, food, water, exercise, and planning.

Jim Rohn taught: “Every day, stand guard at the door of your mind, and you alone decide what thoughts and beliefs you let into your life. For they will shape whether you feel rich or poor, cursed or blessed.”

One of the most potent ways to bring greater mental clarity into your life is to practice a consistent positive morning routine that focuses you on your day. Sometimes we need to unplug. Read a book, take a walk, drink your favorite beverage, watch nature-rain, snow, sunshine.

Journaling is one of the best ways to get mental clarity. When you see those thoughts and ideas on a page, you gain much more clarity on what they mean to you and what you can do about them.

In closing,  remove the toxic people from your life. You do not need them. Toxic people fill your world with negativity, confusion, and emotions that do not help you gain clarity about your life.

Successful Way to Introduce Yourself 

If it’s something you wouldn’t want to read, chances are, the prospect won’t open it either.


Hello Everyone Michael The Traveling Trucker introducing myself to you and Your prospects.

To say that the average consumer is inundated by constant noise is an understatement. Businesses are trying to grab people’s attention via television, radio, billboards, subway signs, social media ads and text messages. The barrage is endless.

But as a business owner, you can’t stop your marketing efforts. One trick to ensure you don’t become part of the noise is to introduce yourself to a customer in an engaging and earnest manner. How you introduce yourself will depend on the situation and your role in the process.

What makes a good first line?

The first line of a story should create a sense of character, conflict, setting, mood, theme, or style — or any combination thereof. Most importantly, it should make the reader ask questions.

Tailor your greeting to the industry and situation. Make your first line about them. Explain why you’re reaching out. Provide value for them. Include a call-to-action. ( This step is vital so don’t forget to put it in. ) Say “thanks” and sign off. Follow up with them.

Sounds so simple, DOESN’T IT? For most, this is a scary process but it doesn’t have to be. It TAKES PRACTICE.

How do you introduce yourself to a prospective client example?

If you are not sure what to share, your name and title is a great place to start. If there’s an opportunity to elaborate, you can also share other details.

My name is [Name], the new [role] at [company name]. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and let you know how much I am looking forward to working with you. I’d love to get started on the right foot, so please don’t hesitate to reach out and set up a meeting to discuss getting started and expectations.

How do you introduce yourself in 4 sentences?

Sentence1: Greeting. A simple Good morning, Hello or something similar is okay. Sentence 2: Your name. “I’m Michael Lipsey” Sentence 3: Point of Connection. Sentence 4: Call to action (or conclusion) NOW WRAP IT UP.
