I lived, worked, studied and played in the United States for 8 years!

So some people say I caught the entrepreneurial bug from the people I surrounded myself with in the US.

If I had to guess they’re probably right.

Not everyone in the US is inclined to own their business.

But I would say the environment is a lot easier if you wanted to.

Things seemed a lot clearer there.

More guidance than ever!

But you probably know that you could be one of those 75% of start-ups that will fail in the first five years!

At least you gave it a try! That’s what you’re thinking.

Home businesses or online businesses are no different.

So now living and working my business from home back in Trinidad I find it very different to the US environment.

The work is just as hard and you still have to force yourself to surround yourself with people who are going to keep you in the right direction. (even harder in Trinidad)

Needless to say 95% of your motivation is still going to have to come from within.

The Point?

Now why am I talking about all this.

Well ……

Recently I ran a survey and asked people what was the one thing stopping them from moving forward in their business.

The options were

1) Lack of Clarity/Overwhelm

2) Technology

3) Learning a new skill

4) Lack of support

5) Other

All the responses (100%)  came back with Lack of Clarity/Overwhelm as their biggest reason!

Now why do you think that is?

Lack of clarity often leads to a feeling of overwhelm because you don’t know where to start.

Then you find yourself stuck in a rut!

Lack of clarity


Lack of clarity is the biggest reason most people don’t get anywhere in their business. (whether you’re living in Trinidad or some other part of the world).

Some say it’s because they haven’t defined their goals. 

But if you have no vision then how do you define goals.

My solution to the lack of clarity problem is really simple.

Answer these questions:

  1. What Do You want to DO ?
  2. What Do You want to BE ?
  3. What do you want to BE KNOWN for? and lastly
  4. What do you want to HAVE ?

That’s where your vision starts

  • Being
  • Having
  • Doing
  • And well being KNOWN.

Here’s what I mean (watch the video)

Sorry if I’m a little long winded!

So What? I know all that!


Now understanding all these elements may still have you feeling a little lost.

Well as I mentioned earlier the RIGHT environment will help bring about even more clarity if you can’t figure it out yourself.

One of the things that really got things clear for me was going through a coaching program within the community I belong to.

The coaching program is free with any product that is purchased which makes it very unique.

Because the coaching program is really geared towards people building a business and needing some advice or “coaching” along the right path.

The first thing they help you figure out is just what we’ve been discussing here – YOUR VISION!

Now you’ll receive tons of other bonuses but the whole idea of getting out of this feeling of lack of clarity will really make things come to life for you!

So if you’re ready to SAY YES! then jump right into today.
