Happy Birthday, Mom!

[Will and Mom at Kits Beach]September 4 is my mom's birthday. I was really glad to spend time with my mom for her birthday this year, since it fell on a Saturday, we get the whole day together! We went to Hy's Steakhouse in downtown Vancouver for a special dinner on Friday night. Hy's is a restaurant I highly recommend for that special night out, because their steaks are simply the best I have ever had!

On Saturday, Julie did up my mom's hair, and took all of us to Sutton Place Hotel, also in downtown Vancouver, for the English traditional afternoon High Tea. After choosing a tea from a selection of different jars containing gourmet loose leaves, we are served with 3 layers of pastries and desserts, what a treat! To work off all the sweets, we then proceeded to the beautiful Kitsilano beach for a nice walk by the ocean and watching the sun set. It's a great feeling to put some time aside to be with family, isn't it? Happy birthday mom!

NLP Master Practitioner Complete!

[Will and Julie, as NLP Master Practitioners]After almost a year of training, I, among many friends, have completed my NLP training on September 13th, and we are now certified as NLP Master Practitioners! The NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner courses were eight weekends each, making a total of over 250 hours in the training room and practicing with the fellow master practitioners.

Many of my friends have asked me about NLP since I started training, and I've found that the more NLP I see, hear, and practice, the less easy it is to fully explain it. A very short description that I like, is that NLP helps people get what they want, when they want it. There are very many processes and techniques that we have learned and practiced that can be used in many areas of life, such as communicating with others so that they truly understand what you mean, and changing unwanted behavior to wanted so it serves the person.

We had a wonderful graduation party at our trainer Noreen's home, with lots of stories, laughter, tears, wonderful foods and karaoke. A fellow student, Loretta, and I started reminancing about who we were, at the beginning of the journey last October, at how much we have changed, and we both started crying because it has been such an amazing journey this last year.

I remember last October I was searching for myself. I was beginning to get used to life in Seattle, and was unsure of where I was going. Now I am centered, feel confident, and it is a wonderful and peaceful place to be. I know many of my classmates have also found similar things in life, so I'd like to take this chance to congratulate the class of NLP Master Practitioners, for a successful training and thanks for being such a wonderful group of people in my life!

Cashflow Game Night

[MMMM Playing Cashflow 101]I have been hosting a Millionaire MasterMind Meeting group here in Redmond, and on August 26, we had a special Cashflow 101 Game Night, in which we crammed 7 people into a single game of Cashflow 101.

If you have never seen Cashflow 101, it is a board game that Robert Kiyosaki designed, even before his Rich Dad, Poor Dad book, to promote financial literacy. Through playing the game, you can gain fundamental financial knowledge on how to complete a financial statement, and how to invest money so that it works for you.

The game goes such that each person picks a profession, and works his or her way out of the "rat race," in which they receive the monthly paycheques and manage their finances through investing in big and small opportunities; in the process they may also have babies, get laid off and buy the daily latte. The goal is to create a monthly passive income big enough to pay for the monthly expenses, then the player wouldn't have to work to pay for their living expenses.

People have asked me, if there is income that is passive, how can I get it? In fact, most people get some form of passive income in bank intersts and maybe even stock dividends. There may also be passive income generated from an Internet-based business, network marketing business, or passive business investments such as managed business like a laundromat or real estate investments.

I'm running out of space so I will have to save the review another speaker at the Extreme Wealth seminar in June for the next issue of Good Will Report. Meanwhile, the fall colors are coming! Isn't this the most beautiful time of the year with the leaves changing colors? Have a great time this month and I will see you again soon!
