How Do You Spell Love? Time !


Good Morning High Achievers!  The holiday season is here and spending time is so important especially now.  Happiness is an inside job.  The main reason for being great and creating a legacy is so that you leave great memories and traditions to pass from generation to generation. 
 This year my family and I began a new tradition for what others call Thanksgiving.  We haven't celebrated in a few years, since finding out that what we thought was the reason was not true, but we still continued to gather, now we have decided that what we would like to do is travel for this holiday, since the rest of society is closed at the same time. 
 As a business owner and a person who works in corporate America I've found that we can get so caught up in the everyday hustle and bustle routine that we forget to pause, relax and enjoy the fun parts in life.  We don't know how much time we have and it doesn't matter what our age is.  These are my grandchildren at the pool in Miami on Thanksgiving day, and me with my two daughters a few days before in Pompano Beach, behind our Resort! We also went to the beach in South Beach on Thanksgiving Day it was so much fun.  This was a first for all of us as my children are now all adults, so just me and my clan.  My oldest daughter planned it and I decided we all would come.  My mom had planned a family trip like this a few years ago, but we went to the Poconos Mountains for Turkey Day, it was great, but it was definitely a snow blizzard and freezing.  We still had fun, but I love the beach and the warm weather.
  My son had to work so he didn't make it, but we're going back at the same time next year.  
This is how you spell Love, TIME!  We stayed for a week, and don't get it twisted, my children got on my nerves, but the happiness that those grandchildren brought and all the fun they had was priceless! 
 I've worked in the vacation industry and I learned some sad statistics on American adults, many Americans have vacation time, but end up either losing it or cashing it out before they lose it.  The problem is they are not taking the time.  I've been to 19 States in the U.S.  some more than once, like Florida this is my fourth time there.   However there are other Countries that require their citizens to take 5 to 6 weeks of vacation time in order to qualify for their free health insurance.  Imagine that lifestyle!  Make preparations, make you and your loved ones priority.  You will leave the planet, and you won't be taking anything with you, but you can leave great memories and a legacy of traditions that can be enjoyed by your future generations.  Thank you mom for planting these types of memories in me and my children.

That is all for this post.  In the next post I will do a mini class on getting your business certified to get contracts with Federal, State and Local governments.  

To your success,
D.S. Woodard

Running A Business is Hard Work!

  Good Morning High Achievers!!  We are at the mid-point of this year 2023.  When I say running a business is hard, I mean that with everything I know.  This year we've had so many changes.  We've acquired a new business to increase our media presence and it comes with so many new components.  New lessons to learn, new systems to be created, etc.  The D.S. WOODARD brand is expanding, we are still a baby among industry giants.  I say all of this to say, don't give up on your dream or your business desires.  Everything worth having is worth the effort.  The year 2023 is about AI and learning to use technology like a boss!  I wish we had the technology 15 years ago at the level that we have now, it makes creating processes so much easier.  Your only challenge is to learn the different facets of the multitude of technical systems available find what is valuable to your business and utilize it to the fullest.  Marketing in 2023 is relatively simple.  All of the social media is c

Are You Ready for Christmas 2022 ?

  Happy holidays!! As a business owner, or a high level manager or a beginner entrepreneur it is important to utilize the momentum of peoples good will and buying spirit during this last month of the year.  This has been a great year of learning for The D.S. Woodard company. Some of the things I studied are what I call the basics.  The basics of life, the basics of finance, the basics of business, the basics of wealth, etc.  I have been looking for a CFO for one of my new business ventures, the school, this is what led me to many of the materials I have been studying. One of the first things that I am going to share today is the Dave Ramsey school of thought.  His system is called " baby steps ."  He currently has a net-worth of $200,000,000.00  If you have children you should allow them to listen to this, if you have a spouse you should have them listen to this.  He teaches daily on his YouTube channel you can google it.  After you start on this activity then you will need t
