Lifestyle Business With Stu McLaren

Stu McLaren explores the differences between maximizing transactional value, versus maximizing recurring transactions. Sounds boring, but isn't.

Spiritual Foundations

Entrepreneurs have a divine call and an important role in repairing “The Breaking of the World”.  Never apologize for your love of business, and your relentless pursuit of excellence. These are qualities planted within your DNA by God. Own who you are.

The people will curse him who withholds grain,
But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.
Proverbs [11:26]

Feature Segment: How To Succeed Faster

Success does not have to be a slow process.

The speed with which we attain our goals has more to do with what happens inside our head, than with what happens in our external circumstances. This episode is all about how to speed up the success process.

Here are nine ways you can accelerate your success.

  1. Know exactly what your “success destination” looks like.
  2. Reverse engineer the path to success.
  3. Model those who have done what you wish to do.
  4. Avoid the inevitable attractive distractions.
  5. Measure your progress in writing.
  6. Be accountable to someone.
  7. Get a coach-or coaches.
  8. Recalibrate on a regular schedule.
  9. Consciously select what you are not going to do.
