Where to Find a Cash Windfall of $10,000 to $1,000,000 -- You Never Knew You Had
There is a rather famous true story called "Acres of Diamonds".
It is about a successful farmer who risks everything searching the African continent for diamonds. Ultimately he dies sick and penniless, while the new owner of his farm uncovers on his property the largest single diamond ever known to man.
Point of fact: After helping hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners, I'll lay odds that this story is true for YOU in more ways than you are currently willing to admit to yourself.
No matter where you are on the success continuum, your ability to generate tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in immediate windfall income is well within your reach.
I know firsthand, because everyday, I am paid handsomely to do just that by my clients and associates.
Now, no one likes to be told that they are sitting on a diamond mine, especially when they don't see it for themselves. So please allow me to give you some advice which could potentially generate a cash jackpot of between $10,000 and $1,000,000 almost overnight.
"What's the secret?", you ask impatiently.
I'll tell you flat out: Your hidden wealth is buried in your email list... it's hiding in your client list... and it lies dormant in your vendor list. I could go on and on.
Here's the secret in a nutshell: One of the places your hidden wealth lies is in the trusted relationships you've cultivated with people over the years.
Let me prove my point with a quick example. I recently did a consult with a client who has a wonderful nutritional product. His own clients are very enthusiastic about the results they get.
At the same time, although he is successful, he is also cash poor. He needs a cash infusion of hundreds of thousands of dollars to be able to fund the building up of his business.
What's the solution? A banker? An angel investor? A partner? Venture capital? Maybe, but I think there might be an easier way.
Here's what I suggested to him: I told him to write a heartfelt letter to his most devoted clients which tells his story and includes an offer that they pre-pay for a year's worth of his product to help him build his company. In return for their support, they'll receive very preferential discounts and unique bonuses from him.
Will the strategy work? Maybe. Maybe not. We won't know until we test it. But the premise is sound because the odds are exceedingly high that many of his clients will empathize with him and want to be a part of his success by helping him achieve his goals.
Because they trust him.
Now some of you will be a bit hard headed and say "But I don't have a product" or "I don't have a client list" or "I don't have a business".
So let me say it again: YOUR windfall opportunity lies in the trusted relationships YOU have cultivated. And your wealth-building opportunities will be kaleidoscopically different from everybody else's.
Here another way of looking it:
Wealth = Opportunity = Trusted Relationships
Now here's the big question. Whether you own a business or not, how can you put this information into action immediately?
My answer for you: Well, the most success-certain way I know is by engineering joint ventures with people. It's my absolute favorite way of building businesses... generating enduring streams of income... and especially creating instant windfall profits.
Of the $7 Billion in profits I am credited with, at least $2.5 Billion has been generated doing lucrative joint ventures.
Solely by learning how to become a joint venture deal-maker who understands the money-making opportunities and "money connections" that exist all around you, you could turn-around almost any problem... make almost any amount of money you desire... and live a life most people only dream of.
Try it! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised the results you achieve.

Pressure Washing Business; Steam Cleaner Fuel Maintenance
It is essential that you fully understand how the fuel system works on your hot water pressure washer or steam cleaner.

We recommend the Hydrotek Hot Water Pressure Washers. Some people prefer Landa, but we have tried them all.

Creating a Power Plan
Part of the power plan is making sure you have all the necessary contact information within a company. It is one thing to have the CEO's information, as he is the decision-maker, but it is quite another to have the information on others that you may be working with directly. You will not likely work directly with the CEO on any project or product purchase; you will be referred to the appropriate person. The information you gather on others should be the same as the information you gathered on the CEO. You will need to know the personality type to give you that inside edge, and also how much influence they have on the decision to make a purchase; you may find that these other contacts have an authorized spending limit following a set of guidelines.

Self Serve Car Washes in the United States
In the 2003 Auto Laundry News Survey it was determined that only 10% of the Coin-op Car Washes had a web site.

Are You Making the Most of Your Intern?
KEEPING INTEREST HIGH: Supervision is key to the success of the program. Interns like direction, but don't like to feel they are being constantly checked on. Even this small amount of direction, however, can take a great deal of time. It is important to be willing to set aside this time to give the intern direction. One method that seems to work calls for a briefing at the beginning of each day and a "where-do-we-stand?" briefing at its end. Throughout the day, the manager is on hand to answer any questions that might come up -- remember this is a learning experience! There should also be additional time set aside throughout the duration of the internship during which the manager receives feedback from the intern on his or her satisfaction with the assignment and suggestions for future directions. Equally important, interns should receive feedback on their progress. They need to know if they are performing to the manager's expectations. Additionally, many interns have chosen to keep diaries and time logs documenting their involvement. These can be reviewed at the conclusion of that person's internship.
