The Path to Success - Why failure Is Good For You#blogsabouthowtosucceed#blogsaboutentrepreneurs#businessadvice


 Again, just cold hard content!
I hope you enjoy it. The next few posts will be very different, but for now, I hope you find my opinions on this subject useful!

How do you view failure? Do you see it as something negative that you don’t want to be associated with or do you see it as something positive? Most people in the world don’t like failure.

Fear of failure is the main reason why more than 80% of people in the world are not prepared to change their circumstances. Why do people fear failure so much? The reason for this is because people don’t understand the dynamics involved in success and failure.

Everything we do in life has either a right way of doing it and a wrong way of doing it. When we do it the right way we meet with success. Needless to say that when we do it the wrong way we are unsuccessful.#storiesofhope

Remember the true meaning of Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, and expecting a different outcome!#blogsabouthope

Understanding this is important because it puts failure in its proper perspective and removes the fear around it.

When someone who doesn’t understand this dynamic meets with temporary failure he gives up thinking that he is not good enough or that he will never make it. But is this really what it is? Does the fact that you didn’t make it the first time mean that you are not good enough? Does it mean that you’ll never make it? Not at all! All it means is YOU HAVE NOT FOUND THE CORRECT METHOD YET!

So what do you do next? Bury your head in the sand? Of course not, you go back and try and find out where you went wrong. Then you try again this time employing a different method. When this doesn’t work you go back and look at everything you have done so far. Talk to successful people who have made it and pick their brain. Analyze a similar model that is very successful and reverse engineer it! Yeah, you heard me! Steal it then make it better! I do this all the time. Guess what? It flat out works everyone!

 I have developed models in my business that I know, will work every time. The reason is, not because I am a genius. It is because I put the time in and, really studied different concepts and processes. This way I can transfer that information to help my clients, and I am supremely confident that when we are through, they are thrilled with the results.

On countless occasions, I have stated to a potential client this exact pitch; “If I start to do the work and you find I am not doing exactly what I said I would do, or, if you think I wasted even 1 minute of your time, just let me know and I will happily write you a check for $1,000.00.”  You know what? I have never, ever written that check.

Whatever you do, don’t give up. Why do you need to do this? Because, “Every failure, every adversity and every heartache, carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit”, says author and mentor to many great men, Napoleon Hill. Failure contains the seed of victory and of success.

Failure teaches you what you thought worked, really doesn’t. So now it is your job to find out why it didn’t. It might be an obvious thing like, the business isn’t sustainable, or it is vulnerable to certain changes that maybe you never considered. It might be that you positioned it wrong and you couldn’t compete or separate yourself from your competition. I have said this before and I’ll say it again. Competition is great in sports, it sucks in business! I will tell you right now, that if I were to start another coffee roasting operation, it would be COMPLETELY different from the model I bought into all those years ago! Wow now there is a thought. Sorry I am getting off point.#blogsforselfimprovement

 When you study the reasons for your failure and learn from it, you’ll find the key to your success. The great inventor Thomas Edison knew this truth better than anyone else. It took Edison 8000 trials to perfect the Edison battery? Afterwards he uttered this famous quote, “At least we know 8000 things that don’t work”.

You should also be like that. Every successful person has had to overcome temporary defeat at one time or another. Know this! You haven’t really failed until you ACCEPT defeat. Now you don’t have to like it, but you do have to accept it, because it is real. It happened, now change it, and make it work!

Do you envy those who got success easily? You know, the guy that inherited his  150 year old family business, and didn’t do a thing to earn it? Don’t! Success earned in spite of earlier failure is so much sweeter than, if you would get it because you were born lucky.

Those who earn success in this way know the road to success. They are not afraid of losing what they have because they have learned how to become successful. Those that easily got success don’t know the road. You on the other hand have cracked the code. You have weathered the storm, you are battle tested and now you know what it takes! Once you have acquired this, there will be no stopping you.

They got there so quickly that they didn’t bother to look around. Let me use the following analogy to illustrate. Take two guys traveling to the same destination, with this difference. The one is going by airplane and the other by car, but the one arriving by car had a few breakdowns along the way.Howtodealwithfailure

If you take these two guys back to their original position and ask them to find their way to their destination, who do you think is going to remember the road better the next time? Surely the guy who had a few breakdowns and spend some time on the road, because he had the opportunity to look around.#overcomewhatisholdingyouback

Let temporary defeat no longer be an obstacle. You have many hidden talents, so start working towards realizing your dreams. Don’t be put off by the fear of failure. Failure is an ally because it contains the seed of success.

Has The Coffee Roasting Business In The U.S. Taken Its Last J.A.B.?#coffee#coffeebusinessnews

Has The Coffee Roasting Business In The U.S. Taken Its Last J.A.B.?
Unless you have been hiding in an unmarked oil well over the past few months, you already must have realized there has been a significant change in the coffee roasting industry. The $40 billion U.S. market has another bully on the block and watch out Nestle, these gentleman are playing for all the marbles.#entrepreneurship

Coffee beans, which is the second largest traded commodity in the world is apparently a target of one of the richest families in Europe. The Reimann family has not so quietly, been actively targeting U.S roasters and using a “price is not an issue" formula!



The cash is there, and they are clearly not afraid to be buying based on future earnings projections. This isn't a strange occurrence for J.A.B., they purchased D.E. Master Blenders, Douwe Egbert for a cool $10 billion. Many analysts refer to this transaction as, "a pure play coffee company".

How To Roast Your Own Coffee At Home!

How To Roast Your Own Coffee At Home!How to roast your own coffee at home! This is a question I have been asked by many people, especially lately. I haven't been actively updating the blog lately because this is one area of my return to the coffee business that I have really been working on.
First of all, coming from a commercial coffee roasting plant, with over 25 years of experience, this question was one I really had to think about. I was thinking, is it even possible to roast a quality cup of coffee at home and secondly, is it worth your time, effort and expense?
Well the answer is a resounding, ABSOLUTELY! Now, with Black Friday right around the corner, I thought this would be a fantastic time to talk a little about the process, the equipment required and some of the nuances you must eventually master to experience the Freshest cup of coffee you will EVER drink!
Now for me, I was lucky enough to pick whatever coffee or blend from my plant on a daily basis, throw a pound in my 1…

The Coffee Roasting Process and Its Effects On The Products You Drink!

By Joe Leary/Principal/Lead Source Digital Marketer's & KYC Consulting on LinkedIn

Today I would like to explain just how much the roasting process effects the coffee we consume on a daily basis. I sincerely hope you find this article enjoyable, interesting and informative.

I am going to attempt to explain the 4 major roasting processes and what it does and doesn't do to the world's second most popularly traded commodity. Before I get started, there is something you need to know about coffee. When coffee is roasted it goes through a process, within that process the beans are altered by temperature and generally gas, LNG, electricity and even wood.

During this process the beans reach levels within that process that makes the beans, "crack". Depending on how light or dark they are being roasting they "crack either once or twice. This alters the flavor profile tremendously, so please keep that in mind while reading this article.

I have included some pictures, t…
