Being Paralyzed with Fear

June 28, 2015 by Ben Miller

Yesterday afternoon I witnessed one of the funniest and saddest things I’ve ever seen.  The boys had gotten home from school and come inside.  Lucinda (my wife for those of you not playing the home game) told our six year old son Will to go back out to the car and bring in his book bag.

I came up from my office and noticed that I had been talking to Lucinda for a while and had not seen Will yet.  I took a few steps towards the front door and saw Will, just 4 feet from the door… one foot on the porch, one up in the air.  He was holding his book bag over his head (recently he’s been pretending it’s an umbrella).

He was frozen.  It’s like we had been playing “Red Light Green Light” and someone said RED LIGHT and then left to run to the grocery store.

I looked at him for a few seconds and old Lucinda to come over.  I didn’t know what was happening.  I thought it was funny (Will gets VERY into playing and watching things… he’ll sit and watch a bulldozer for an hour without moving if you’ll let him).Bumble-Bee-300x225
As we approached the door, I assumed he was just watching something.  But we started to get worried as we got closer and notice that he was standing on one leg, and wasn’t moving.

He saw a bee by the front door.

It didn’t take long for his dream to become a nightmare. Even though business was good, he had leveraged himself in debt, hired the wrong employees and grown too fast. After a couple of big contracts disappeared and a blow from a bad economy, Ben barely kept the business alive. DEBT ROBS YOU OF PROSPERITY: Over a million dollars had passed through his hands in just a few short years, yet he had nothing to show for it. When Ben speaks and coaches, he brings his humor that got him through it, and the humility to tell his story in hopes that you can avoid the same mistakes. Those mistakes that he made are the same ones that close 8 out of 10 small businesses in their first two years of operation. Ben has spent years studying great businesses and personal finances. He’ll show you how to: Create a household budget and become debt free Grow a business without the stress of debt Hire employees that can’t wait to be at work Monday morning (building an amazing team culture) Run a social media campaign turning your clients into family Charge a premium fee for your service based business Master productivity and achieve the “work / life” balance everyone dreams of
