Walt Disney and Roy Disney were diametrically opposed on profit

Walt Disney and his older brother Roy had the same critical business vision, profit, yet their unique approaches where polar opposites.

Roy Disney saw profit as the goal.

Walt saw it as the reward.

Our attitude about life is similar.

We spend so much time working for a living.

Do we live to work, or work to live?

Do we measure our success by our paycheck or by our happiness?

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

About Mid Life Celebration

They say it takes seven years to make a profit

Historic Climate change agreement
A few days ago, an historic moment for the world.

 

Historic moments are rare.

And when these moments happen, things change.

i’m quietly and humbly celebrating a significant historic moment.

They say it takes seven years to make a profit.

Like clockwork.

In 18 days, on January 1, 2016, Mid Life Celebration’s eighth year begins.

Was sharing on the phone with my Mom yesterday that 2015 was the first year of real revenue.

While still at Disney, the book revenue in 2013 and 2014 was so minuscule (closer to zero than to $5k each year), that if we rounded to the closest number, it would be zero.
