TIP Tuesday

May 2, 2017
Welcome to TIP (To Increase Possibilities) Tuesday where I give you a nugget that can help you build a gold mine.
Use your blog or social media to feature others in and outside of your network and industry.
A few years ago I was asked to do PR for a great friend and it was put in my spirit to start a blog called Today’s Honoree where other people would nominate other people. Today’s Honoree at http://www.TodaysHonoree.com has now featured over 1,000 people and it gives each person that is featured the power to pay it forward and nominate others that deserve recognition.
Here are the basic resources you need to give back to others.
1. Picture.
2. Bio or resource box.
3. Website or blog
4. Social media links
When you give up space to promote another face it will organically take your dream to an incredible unknown place. The unknown can take you from working for someone to working on your own.
Stop looking at others like they are a funny creature but look inside them and see how to tell their story with a feature.

Get A Long: An Original Love Story

February 4, 2012

Copyright © 2012 by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

Growing up boys dreamed of marrying one of the Long daughters. Jim Long is married to Karen Long and the rumor is they named Long Island after their family. The saying is that  the family has Long money and their savings will never run out. The Longs made their money early on in residential real estate and later switched over to build a commercial real estate empire.

As a young man marrying a Long was like winning the lottery where everything would be taken for you. The Longs had three daughters and no sons. Each young man that would be given the opportunity would be treated just like he was a Long.

The three daughters were Kali 30, Joan 28 and Cassee 23. Kali and Joan were successfully married and where the story begins everyone in the family is wondering when Cassee will find and marry Mr. Right.

In High School Cassee became real good friends with Joe Joe Johnson. Joe Joe was a great fit for Cassee but because of his economic background she never felt the family would approve of Joe Joe becoming one of them. Joe Joe was not naive but he liked Cassee and remained good friends with her throughout High School and College.

During college Cassee became serious about Jamir Jefferson, a college All American running back who was projected as a 1st round draft pick in the NFL. Cassee and Jamir met as Freshmen and have dated for four years having an optimistic view of having a family with kids one day.  Jamir liked the idea but wanted to wait until he established himself with his professional football career.  Cassee  was more ready especially with seeing how Kali and Joan were living the American dream like their mom and dad.

Jamir went to the NFL Draft Party. He was selected the number 1 running back at pick #16 by the New York Jets. Since the draft was in NY the crowd went crazy. Jamir had went to the draft alone and did not invite Cassee. After the draft Jamir met with Cassee and let her know that he wanted to move on as just friends. Jamir wasn’t ready to be tied down for the Long haul with the Long family.

Cassee was full of tears and as usual called on her Joe Joe. Double J as many call him was always there for Cassee no matter what. Cassee asked Joe Joe to meet her out for dinner and the two began to establish a bond even greater than the one they already had.

Joe Joe went to see Cassee graduate from College with a B.A. in International Business from Harvard. Joe Joe never went to college but remained a mainstay at his job that he has held since High School. In 6 years he has gone from grocery bagger to one of the youngest Store Manager’s in company history.

Cassee decided it was time to introduce Joe Joe to her family as Mr. Right. Everyone was happy for her even though Mr. Long had some concerns about the finanacial future of their family. Mr. Long wanted to know if a Store Managers salary could provide Cassee with the type of lifestyle that she was accustomed to?

Joe Joe laughed lightly saying to Mr. Long “if anyone signs a prenuptial, it won’t have to be me”

“Mr Long have you heard of EOJ International?” “Yes I have Joe Joe, my two son in laws work for the company and are both earning well over six figures a year”

“Well if they are earning six figures how well do you think I’m doing? I own the company and EOJ is my name backwards. When my Grandfather died four years ago I inherited the company. I never said anything because I wanted people to treat me the same whether I had a lot of money or not.  Mr. Long I read in your book, Long Money, that a key to wealth is to put a great team together, keep them happy and get the hell out of the way. For four years I have done just that with great success. Running a store helps me run my other businesses and at the same time I get to shape lives.”

Six months later Joe Joe was able to Get A Long as he and Cassee tied the knot.
