ATTN: Entrepreneurs / Business Minds! The greatest wealth factor is…

tired businesswomantired business man



There is nothing more pitiful than a ready and willing mind but an incapable body.

There is a well-known quote from the philosopher Virgil that says, “The greatest wealth is health.” I also believe that health is the beginning of wealth. In other words, your health will help you create wealth.

If you are in the business of attracting, influencing, selling or leading others, how you show up, your physical appearance, speaks volumes about who you are, how you are and what you are or not capable of.

I know, people shouldn’t judge you, right? Well, here is a clue… they do!


Here is a good question to consider: If your body is the billboard of your personal development, your calling card and your personal 15-second commercial, what is it communicating? Take a good hard look in the mirror (literally) and determine if that is the message you want conveyed. I know this is pretty direct and maybe a bit harsh, but this is the reality of life. This is also why I hope you read this blog—because I am willing to tell it to you straight with no holds barred.

If you want to attract committed, dedicated, disciplined and consistent people into your business, then you have to exhibit those qualities yourself first. And like it or not, how you show up, your physical outcome, is the demonstration of those qualities in you.

So I encourage you to take your physical fitness seriously. If not for the sheer benefit of having you live longer, look younger and feel better, then because it will attract more and higher quality people into your entrepreneurial pursuits.
