Do you know of a ‘Mr. R. Darby’? If you have heard of him before, you’ll remember him for his misfortune and some very bad decisions!

Mr. Darby and his uncle struck gold years ago in Colorado but the vein of gold soon disappeared. They sold everything to a junk dealer and left their dream behind.

The junk dealer called in a mining engineer who determined that Mr. Darby had stopped drilling just 3 feet from a huge deposit of gold.

That junk dealer made millions because he didn’t let his ego stop him from calling in an expert to help him determine what was possible.

Action – Whether you’ve given up just feet away from your dream or not, this may be the ideal time to call in an expert. The opinion of someone who has more expertise than you can accelerate your success or help you get out before spending too much money or time on a no-win situation.

I know it is not the same as receiving the pay check every month as in my previous positions as Finance Manager of companies. Is it time to call the expert to help me?
