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.

Rearrange our word choice and magic happens

Twitter screen shot on iPhone. One word is missing.

 

This photo was taken yesterday. It’s a Twitter advertisement for their new video app. Love the tag line:

 

Life, camera, action.

 

Rearrange our word choice and magic happens. A small tweak – add one word, change the order – changes everything.

 

Life, purpose, action, camera.

 

Got it?

It’s your ship to sink or sail

Disney Executive Leadership Speakers

It has been incredibly interesting to be in charge of everything.

As CEO of your own small business, you can do anything you want.

This is a blessing and a curse.

You might sink your ship. You might discover new shores.

Bottomline, it humbles you in learning why so many people do, or don’t do, the things they do.

Survival.

And if you manage to survive, greed comes a calling asking you to cut corners, take short cuts, exaggerate.

But then you remember the brand you are building – and none of those are even remotely acceptable.

Dear Son, Most Startup Businesses Don’t Survive

Life, like nature, and business, can be quite brutal.

Dear Son, the fact that Mid Life Celebration is still alive is because your Father has learned how to survive. What we accept by default becomes our standard. I can accept failure, but I can not accept quitting.
