Dealing with Overwhelm by Rick White, President 180BIZ

It's really important to understand what people are dealing with at different times.  It’s OVERWHELM. Overwhelm happens regularly, especially in stressful situations. And overwhelm is going to come in two different ways.

  1. You try to make something happen and it just won’t go right.  This causes you to get overwhelm.  Let's deal with this situation first. There's a lot of people right applying for the SBA loans. And the overwhelm comes when they can't get everything they need together. They need financial information from their accountant who is bombarded with requests.  They can’t complete the SBA Loan application until the accountant get’s back to them.  This is overwhelming. Here’s something that may help you to overcome that overwhelming feeling. 
  1. Recognize it. Stand up. Breathe. Put your shoulders back and chin up. Don your SUPERHERO pose. I've talked about that...

April Fools? by Rick White, President 180BIZ

Today is April Fool's Day and that's what I want to talk a little bit about today. Let's put the pranks on hold this year. What do you think? I think there is enough stress and enough crap that people are dealing with now. It's all this different stuff that we're dealing with on the inside. People don't need to be pranked. I want to make this April FUN Day. What do you think?

Starting today, April FUN Day, be on the lookout for somebody that needs a smile, somebody that needs a kind word, a joke, or that just needs just to get their mind off what they're going through right now. I really feel like today is a great day to step back and get people to laugh. I found a meme this morning and it made me laugh out loud. I almost fell off the sofa this morning. Here’s a shout out to Andrew Minkler of Bavarian Motor Repairs up in Maryland who posted it.  It says, “This quarantine has me realizing why my dog gets so excited about...

What do stars have to do with it? by Rick White, President 180BIZ

Last night I was taking Lucky, my dog, outside. It was about 10:30 or 11 o'clock. I love in the country and last night the stars were absolutely breathtaking. I have an app on my phone called star walk that helps me find constellations and planets. So, I found Ursa Major last night, the night before I saw Pluto, Saturn and Mars all lined up together. It was awesome. But why am I telling you about this? Because this morning, around 4:30, when I took Lucky out, the sky was overcast with clouds and I found myself thinking there are no stars. A little voice inside of me said, “Yes, there are. You just can't see them.” Just because I can't see something doesn't mean it isn't there.

My message for today is about the power of perspective.  I didn’t see any stars, but I guarantee that the starts were there.  If I could have gotten above the clouds, I would have seen the stars. How much is this...

The Most Important Question by Rick White, President 180BIZ

I want you to contemplate a question. The question is when this is all over and it will be all over, who do you want to be? How do you want people to talk about who you were through this situation, this pandemic? I think this is an amazing question to ask yourself. You’ll have to ask yourself, what would that person think? First, decide where or who do you want to be? What does that look like?

I want to be known as somebody that really helped people through this. I want to be known as a bright light. That's my goal right now. It’s to help others get through this. This has nothing to do with money and nothing to do with sales. It is strictly to help other people. So now ask yourself a couple of questions.

  • What does that person have to think?
  • What does that person have to believe?
  • What kind of attitudes do they need?
  • What kind of actions will that person take?
  • What kind of words will that person use to build up...

Daily Dose Episode 14 (Faith Edition)


Faith and Decisions by Rick White, President 180BIZ

In this episode I’ll talk about our faith in different part of our lives, about being able to tap into something bigger and greater than we are. I am not the most religious man. Lord knows I've got a mouth sometimes. I am perfectly imperfect and at the same time I have such faith.  I think that is what's helping me get through everything that I've been through in my life.  It got me through two divorces and a bankruptcy.  When I went through those divorces, I couldn't understand why I would ask God, “Why am I going through this?” Then fast forward 20 years and I'm helping other people stay married. I'm helping other people go through the pain of divorce. I'm helping other people find love. It’s all because I went through that pain.

I think what is really screwing with us right now is that we are all so self-reliant. We have been brought up or taught ourselves that our success is completely on...

Significant Others by Rick White, President 180BIZ

In this episode, I’ll step back and look at the different relationships in our lives and give you some thoughts that can help you, not only improve your business, but improve the rest of your life, as well. Let’s talk about significant others. Now I want to be clear, I am not a psychologist. I am not a therapist, nor do I play one on television. All I'm going to do is share with you what I have learned over my 57 years so far, and what has worked for me. I’ll share observations and things that I'm still working on.  I'm going to be talking from a husband's perspective to a wife.

I love women; they are amazing. They are so much stronger and smarter and more resourceful than men. I'm sorry guys. It's a fact. They spit babies out and we cry when we get a splinter. So, I’ll just leave it at that.

The first thing I want to talk about is taking people for granted. When we first meet the love of our lives, we...

Jim Rohn's Ant Philosophy! by Rick White, President 180BIZ

Please share this blog and these videos if this is touching you in any way or if this series is touching your you, your life, and making it a little bit better. Please share the video to help somebody else.

I read a very cool thing years ago and it is so applicable today. I don't know if you've ever heard of this gentleman before. His name is Jim Rohn. He is a really great guy. He has impacted the lives of Tony Robbins and Darren Hardy and all these different people that are really major thought leaders today. Jim had this talk that he called the Ant Philosophy.  It basically had four things to it.

  1. Persist Without Exception. No matter what gets in your way, just keep going. I don't care if you have to go through it, over it, under it, or around it. You persist without exception. You get to a point where there is no other option but to go where you're going. And I think that's an amazing thought process to embrace...

Have the Presence to Stay Present? By Rick White, President 180BIZ

The first thing I'm going to talk about is what happens when something big happens around us. The very first thing we do is step back and watch it.  We do that because our brain is interpreting and trying to determine whether it's a threat or not. So, we tend to step back, and we watch what's going on. A lot of people are doing that right now. They're stepping back, they're waiting for it to go away. When they do that, things are happening to them. They’ve become a victim and they're living smaller than they could. They are simply staring at the problem.

That reaction doesn’t work for me. You see, every day we have choices. Yesterday I talked about whether we're going to consume or feed. Are we going to spend time or are we going to invest time? Are we going to grow through this or are we just going to escape?

You have to make a choice every day to show up and be either proactive or reactive. When...

Are You Consuming or Feeding? by Rick White, President 180BIZ

First, I’ll ask you “Today, are you consuming or are you feeding?” What are you putting into your mind? In high stress times like this, it’s extremely important to be intentional about what you feed yourself.  Why? Because when we get stressed out, we tend to shut down. We tend to fill the empty space with noise that stops us from thinking. For example, lots of people are binge watching Netflix right now. It's so bad that the European union had to ask Netflix to scale down the quality of the videos. They were sucking up all the bandwidth.

That's scary, in my opinion, because if you are continually consuming tv shows, binge watching, you are not being productive.  It's like going to McDonald's and eating Big Macs all day long. At some point this stuff is going to kill you. Even worse than Netflix is binge watching the news.  Zig Ziglar said he used to read the Bible every morning and...

You Are Unstoppable! by Rick White, President 180BIZ

Every morning when you wake up there's going to be a little bit of that fear going on in your head. You might think, “What's it going to be like today?” There's some scary stuff going on these days. I was watching the news last night, with my wife Brenda, and it showed how it took four months for the first 100,000 people to get this virus.  Then it took 12 days to get to 200,000, which is doubling the number of people who contracted the virus. Twelve days, can you believe it? So, four months for the first 100,000, 12 days for the second 100,000 and then yesterday showed the that it only took 4 days for the next 100,000.  It went from 4 months, to 12 days, to 4 days. The numbers are going up crazy. So, it’s important to protect ourselves and those around us.

Because of this bad news it's easy for our primary morning question that we ask ourselves is, “What’s going to go wrong today?” or...
