So You Want to Write a Book?

Written by admintemp on . Posted in Uncategorized


It has never been easier to become a published author…and publishing a book helps you build and strengthen your personal brand, as well as your credibility as an expert in your field. Being a successful author is about more than just writing…it is about Publishing with Purpose and a Platform. Getting clear on your message and speaking to your audience is the first step. You can find dozens of sites online that will teach you how to write a book…for a fee. If you have a keyboard or a pad of paper…you can write…for free. Just keep the reader in mind. Write as if you are talking to the reader. Use story-telling in your writing…it allows to reader to get emotionally connected to your message. Don’t worry about your grammar. Once you have written your thoughts it is easy to find an editor to clean up your manuscript grammatically. Some people set aside time each day to write a book…others dedicate concentrated amounts of time to write. John Grisham used to write each morning at 5am before he went to the office to practice law…it took him 3 years to write his first novel A Time to Kill. Dedicating time each day to writing definitely worked miracles for him. I, on the other hand, have to go away alone, apart from all distractions and immerse myself in writing to achieve the outcome I desire. Every book I have written has been written, in part, at a beach. I find solace and intense creativity at the beach. I have averaged a book every 9 months for the last 18 years. So what is the right answer for you? Only you can determine the answer. The more important issue is getting started. Is there something you love to do? Write about it. Is there something that makes you mad? Write about it. Is there something new in your field? Write about it! As you begin writing, ask yourself if you have a platform from which to promote your book? Do you have a database of loyal customers and fans? Do you have associates or others in your field that will help spread the word? What is your footprint in social media? Do you know the latest trends in publishing…from traditional publishing to vanity publishing to e-book publishing? I look forward to sharing regularly on the subject of Publishing with Purpose and a Platform for Profit over the next couple of months. There is a tried and true strategy that has created great success for me over the years. It is not enough to write a book…you need to let people know you have written it…and make it easy for them to buy it and tell others about it. After receiving many requests for counsel and direction in publishing, I am hosting an event September 19th and 20th here in Scottsdale, Arizona bringing together my team of advisors to share their wisdom.

New Year’s Resolutions

Written by admintemp on . Posted in Uncategorized

newyears As 2015 begins, we once again make New Year’s Resolutions, or promises to ourselves, to change something…or do something new in the new year. Whether it be weight related…or wealth related, studies show that most New Year’s Resolutions are broken before the end of January. As you consider your financial results in 2014, why is that? N – Now E – Expect W –Wealth Y – Yet don’t E – Engage in A –Attitude and habit shifts to ensure R – Results Our promises don’t get transformed into goals that include changing our habits and attitudes. Because for new beginnings to be successful….our old habits must change. For habits to change, our attitude and thoughts need to change.   As you ring in 2015, and make your New Year’s Resolutions, remember the saying “For things to change, I must change.” Or “If It is to be…it is up to me!”   N – Now E – Expect W –Wisdom Y – You are committed to E – Educate yourself and experience A – Attitude and habit shifts to ensure R – Results In addition to reviewing your resolutions often, add to your list the following positive self talk, “To accomplish this resolution, I will change my bad habit of _________________________…and create a new habit of ________________________!”   And, “IN order to ensure that my habits will stick…and my resolutions will succeed, I will adjust my attitude from _______________________(skepticism, doubt, fear) to an attitude of ______________________________(commitment, faith, determination, perseverance!)” May 2015 see all your New Year’s Resolutions come true…and bring you a year of love, laughter…and lots of fun! Happy New Year! Your Mentor, Sharon Lechter

Tis The Season

Written by admintemp on . Posted in Uncategorized

facebookimg When you hear “Tis the Season,” what comes to mind? “To be Jolly,” is often the answer…and “jolly” is a state of mind or attitude. Too many times we get caught up in the chaos of the season, stressing out over choosing the right gifts for our loved ones…and then even more stressed out over how we are going to pay for them in January when the bills come in. And about those gifts…just the effort of choosing them and purchasing them can add even more stress and chaos as we are faced with crowded stores, traffic jams and undelivered packages. Whew! And we say “Tis the Season to be Jolly?” Is this how you experience your holiday season? S – shopping E – expensive gifts A – angry drivers S – spending O – obnoxious shoppers N – Never-ending lines Not too much to be jolly about there! So at this time of year I remind myself to practice the Law of Attraction and focus my attitude on what else this season provides us. We have time to reflect on the past year, with all its success…and learning opportunities. And then look forward to 2015 and designing the future we want… filled with opportunity and fulfillment. And during this season, we can create lasting memories from the time we share with our family and friends and the donations we make to the causes that touch our hearts. So try focusing your attitude about the season this way: S – spirit E – experiences A – altruism S – sharing O – opportunity N – Never-ending memories You will find a lot to be jolly about when you frame the Season with these thoughts in mind. In support of a successful start to your New Year and prosperous financial decisions throughout 2015, I am giving to you my Save Wisely, Spend Happily book. Get it for free here. May your holiday season be filled with love, laughter and life-time memories! Sharon Lechter

Thanksgiving In preparing for Thanksgiving with my fabulous family and friends, each step in preparation reminds me to be grateful. As I place the tablecloth on the table, I thank God for the opportunity to share a day of thankfulness with the people who mean the world to me. As I place each plate on the table, I imagine the richness of flavors that will come together to create a fabulous meal and am thankful for the richness of my life experiences that have come together to create my personal journey. With each knife I place, I thank the wisdom I have gained that helps me cut through the noise and static in my life to allow me to focus on what is really important, my family and friends (that’s you!) With each spoon I place, I thank God for his abundance of blessings that he has shared and is ready to share…if we just ask for them. With each fork I place, I thank the challenges that I have overcome for the lessons I learned from them. With each napkin I place, I thank the healing wishes, love and prayers that I have received that help remove the pain and wipe my frown away to return a smile to my face. With each glass I place, I thank the richness of drink that allows us to toast each other and celebrate our love and friendship. And as I place the candles on the table, I thank the light they provide…and the illumination of gratitude for all we have achieved and shared during the year. This year has been a year of continued healing for Mike and me and our family, but our spirits continue to soar from the never-ending love and support that we receive from all of you. As I review this year, I am thankful for my business and my wonderful team at Pay Your Family First. I am touched by the richness of response I have received from Think and Grow Rich for Women. I wrote it to be a celebration of women…and it is working….women are truly celebrating themselves as they read it and share it with each other. And just last week, I was in Washington DC and found great support from the House of Representatives Education Committee for a bill I am helping Representative Matt Salmon submit in January that will require financial education for anyone receiving federally backed student loans. This will truly be the highlight of my career….22 years of driving and shouting from the mountaintops the importance of financial literacy. So all this thankfulness brings me back to the true spirit of Thanksgiving… my gratitude to each of you. My life and my spirit is full of gratefulness…for I would not be who I am today if not for all the successes, setbacks, and all the joys and tragedies I have experienced. As I place the beautifully browned turkey and all its trimmings on the table, I thank you for the richness you have provided to my life, and pray for rich blessings of an abundance of love and success for you and your family! With a loving and grateful heart, Sharon Lechter

Brilliant Minds

brilliant My mission to empower individuals to be masters of money was spurred by experiences with my own children that really drove home the need for financial education. But the passion that drives me is renewed by the incredible need that still exists. I am honored to be invited to speak at the Brilliant Minded Women event on November 22nd- a gala to benefit the Center for Abuse Awareness. Approximately 6 out of 10 Americans strongly agree that the lack of money and a steady income is often a challenge faced by a survivor of domestic violence when leaving her/his abuser.* Empowering individuals to understand and be in control of their financial situation is an important step in providing the tools needed to leave an abuse situation. www.brilliantmindedwomen.com Please join us at the Brilliant Minded Women gala on November 22nd at the Paramount Convention Center in Woodbridge, Ontario. This elegant and sophisticated evening event combines dinner, networking, and live entertainment with the opportunity to learn from speakers who are leading entrepreneurs. It’s a perfect occasion to strategically re-focus on your business and meet enterprising women who will support and promote your growth for years to come.

iPhone 6 Catches Fire

Written by admintemp on . Posted in Uncategorized

For many of us, electronics are such a part of our daily lives, we don’t think twice about them.  Nor would we expect a potential danger related to items that we keep close to our person.  I was alarmed when I learned that my son’s new iPhone 6 caught fire in his pocket, giving him major burns.  Please be aware of this possibility and use and store your devices carefully.  


pedicab This was a surreal experience, and if it hadn’t happened to me I wouldn’t believe it myself.   I had pre-ordered the New Apple iPhone 6 (not the 6 plus) from my wireless carrier the first day available and I received the phone less than a month ago, in September. The Event My family and I went to Tucson, AZ for University of Arizona’s family weekend on the weekend of October 11th.  We went down to attend the football game that Saturday.  We were walking to a tailgate party, when we noticed 2 rickshaws/pedicabs on the street… The bikes with a trailer that you ride on. There were 6 of us, so we divided into 2 groups; and my wife, youngest son (7) and I were in the second rickshaw.    We didn’t get much more than a block down the road when the driver/biker caught a trolley track in the road and lost balance.  He feel over causing the rickshaw to tip over to the left.  Fortunately, the rickshaw didn’t tip all the way over, and we were not thrown out.  I was half on, half off the rickshaw as I was sitting on the left side of the seat.  I immediately checked my wife and son to make sure they were ok.  While I was looking at them, I felt a burning sensation on my leg and then saw and smelled smoke from my pants.  I surveyed the rickshaw quickly and could not find anything that could have set me on fire.  Then it hit me, my phone was in my pocket.  Somehow in the process of the tipping of the rickshaw my new APPLE iPhone 6 had bent in my front pocket and caught on fire. The smoke was thick and I quickly laid down to get the APPLE iPhone 6 out of my pocket.  The smell was disturbing.  I could feel my leg burning.  I pulled the Apple iPhone 6 out of my pocket and threw it to the side.   Someone from a crowd of spectators threw a cup of water on my leg to put the fire out on my jeans. I had a leather Apple case on the phone, and the case was facing forward, and that saved my fingers from getting badly burned when i went to remove the phone from my pocket.  A bystander was not so lucky; he picked up the phone without the case and burned his fingers.  With a crowd looming, another bystander then put Ice water on the phone to cool it off while a 3rd observer took the below video.  Listen closely, you can hear the sizzling. The Result Once we all calmed down we assessed the damage.   My APPLE iPhone 6 burned through my jeans pocket, through my boxers and significantly burned my leg.  In the process of removing the phone from my pocket I also burnt my hip.  The Doctor’s report described a 11.5 cm x 10.5 cm burn area on my right leg and classified the burn as 2nd degree with first degree burns surrounding the area. According to the Doctor, the burn will require cleanliness, antibiotics and pain management for treatment.    In the days since the event… include interruptions to my business, workout, and family life and the ‘freak out’ factor for all involved.

Keep the Momentum Going

Written by admintemp on . Posted in Uncategorized

Group sucess
A new report issued by the Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) shows growing numbers of women board nominees for S&P 500 companies.  The increased percentage of women nominees, up from 15% in 2008 to 30% in 2014, is a positive indication that companies are seeing the value of gender diverse boards.  As we continue to celebrate the incredible performance of boards with both men and women, more companies will follow suit and we will see higher conversions of nomination to board seats for women.

What can we do to keep the celebration going?

First, remember that our economy will flourish with full participation of our talent.  That means men and women working together!  Warren Buffet said it best: “we’ve seen what can be accomplished when we use 50% of our human capacity. If you visualize what 100% can do, you’ll join me as an unbridled optimist about America’s future.”

If you are a women- throw your hat in the ring!  Share the contribution that you bring to the table the way that only you can. Thank you to all the women who have paved the way and those that continue to take the road less traveled so that others may benefit- men and women!

The Secret to Freedom and Success

Written by admintemp on . Posted in Uncategorized

whoami-300x300 Many books have been written about the keys to success. There are many seminars that teach these same principles. So why do people still not find the success they desire? Could it be there are other forces at work that prevent you from finding the success you so richly deserve? Do you want to outwit the devil in your life? The following questions were designed to trigger conversation and reflection that may help identify the obstacles that may be holding you back.
  1. In 1937, Napoleon Hill released his all-time bestselling book Think and Grow Rich which outlined the thirteen principles of success. It was the result of over 20 years of research where Hill interviewed the leaders of his time to synthesize a common philosophy of success.
    1. What is your definition of success?
    2. Has there been a time in your life when nothing could stop you or get in your way? How did that feel? What were the circumstances surrounding that time?
  2. Written by Hill in 1938, hidden from the public until this year and only known to exist by a handful of individuals, Outwitting the Devil identifies and confronts life’s greatest obstacles – fear, procrastination, anger and jealousy – which stand in the way of success. The following questions create a discussion around these obstacles.
    1. Define some of the ‘road blocks’ or ‘temporary defeats’ you have experienced on your road to success? How did you overcome those obstacles?
    2. Has there been a time that you have been your own worst enemy? Have you gotten in your own way?
    3. Fear is often used to motivate people – what impact does fear have on you? Is it motivating or paralyzing?
    4. Have you ever reacted to a situation and surprised yourself by your reaction (not knowing where it came from)?
    5. Have you ever talked yourself out of doing something that you knew was good for you? How did you justify it?
    6. Have you ever felt your creativity squashed or stifled? What got in your way?
    7. In contrast, have you ever had a “gut instinct” that saved the day or kept you from making a mistake?
  3. Along with identifying life’s greatest obstacles in Outwitting the Devil, Napoleon Hill also reveals the seven principles that can help you conquer those obstacles and attain spiritual, physical and mental freedom.
    1. The first of those principles Hill defines is “Definiteness of Purpose”. Do you know your purpose? Do you share your purpose with others?
    2. Another principle that Hill defines is learning from adversity. Can you identifya time you went through a life change? Maybe it was a ‘wake-up call’ a ‘tap on the shoulder’ or a ‘slap in the face’.
    3. If you could identify something that prevents you from creating the success you deserve, would you deal with it and conquer it?
In 1938, Napoleon Hill wrote Outwitting the Devil as a sequel to Think and Grow Rich. Despite his success as a published author, Outwitting the Devil was never released due to fears by his family that it was too controversial. While confrontational in nature, Outwitting the Devil challenges elements within politics, religion, public education as well as other societal issues that prevent people from reaching their greatest potential and provides solutions that are as relevant today as they were in 1938. otdbook Are you ready to face release yourself from fear and uncertainty? www.sharonlechter.com/outwittingthedevil   To your success! Sharon Lechter     “Most real failures are due to limitations which men set up in their own minds.”                                     – Napoleon Hill
