Young Couple Accomplishes their Dreams

I just want to say, WOW! What an awesome weekend Mike and I just had! Every seminar we attend, we get so much closer to our goals and dreams! Fred Harties and his team did it again! They KNOW the leaders in this great organization! Dean and Teresa Frey are on fire! They are on fire for thier freedom and on fire for their dreams! Seeing them March 19th refreshed my belief in myself! I am so grateful for our support system, and I appreciate everything they do for us! Dean and Teresa started this business when they were young, and I personally thanked them for explaining how we, as another young couple, can accomplish our dreams too!

Are you lonely at the top?

"I was reading an article called 'Lonely at the Top' in Entrepreneur magazine, discussing how loneliness can plague the lifestyle of business owners. The article was alluding towards the time spent on building up the business and how work vs. personal time tend to blend together. This drew my thoughts towards a very fortunate feeling I had inside, regarding my own business ownership. Since day 1 of starting my Independent Business working with Team BizNet and the Harteis family, I have never felt lonely nor 'out of the loop' of balancing business and personal life. BizNet has developed a very stellar system that assists me with living a well-balanced lifestyle, while also improving in all areas of my life, all while building my own business. I know I will never find myself in a lifestyle of loneliness...nor can I imagine why an accomplishment's reward would be loneliness. Thanks Team BizNet...for keeping me in check and looking up!"

Atmosphere for Winning

Fred and Linda Harteis have created an atmosphere that allows room to grow. We appreciate the fact that in growing whether in success or failure, you can use the experiences of life to grow and change into what God has for you. Allowing us that ability to continue to learn and grow is priceless. From the bottom of our hearts… Thank you

Team Players

The Biz Net Team is so awesome. Fred and Linda Harteis have developed an awesome system that allows us to grow. I’m reading The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player by John Maxwell (which is part of our system), and some of the best chapters are, Adaptable: If you Won’t Change for the Team, the Team May Change You, and Enlarging: Adding Value to Teammates is Invaluable… thanks Fred and Linda for all you do for the team.

Personal Growth

We recently listened to a tape from the weekly tape series provided through the continuing education program of BizNet Productions. Dean Frye, one of the top producers in BizNet Productions, founded by Fred Harteis, spoke about his growth in business and about his growth personally as he applied the principles he learned though the business system. The tape was motivating and informative.

Thanks BizNet, you have opened the door of the greatest opportunity I have encountered."

Tini Frogs

Subject: TINY FROGS
by Fred Harteis
I thought this was inspirational.There once was a bunch of tiny frogs,...who arranged a running competition.The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants...The race began...Honestly:No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.You heard statements such as:"Oh, WAY too difficult!!"
"They will NEVER make it to the top."or:"Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one...Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher...The crowd continued to yell,"It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!"More tiny frogs got tired and gave up...But ONE continued higher and higher and higher...This one wouldn't give up!At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?It turned out...That the winner was DEAF!!!!The wisdom of this story is:Never listen to other people's tendencies to benegative or pessimistic...because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heart!Always think of the power words have.Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!Therefore:ALWAYS be...POSITIVE!And above all:Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfil your dreams!

Being average

I am continually learning that mediocrity is not acceptable. “Average is the best of the worst and the worst of the best”, a quote from Fred Harteis. Speaking of not average, Fred Harteis retired at a very early age and claimed his financial independence. Most people would have stopped there, because most people are average. Fred and Linda Harteis decided that their financial independence was only a starting point. Their vision was to help a lot of other people climb the mountain that they had already climbed. By that one decision, they became “mountain climbing coaches”, so to speak. I met Fred and Linda Harteis when they were already on top of the mountain, and I was at the very bottom. For no other reason than the love they have in their hearts and their belief that no one is average, people just have habits that give them average results. They took my wife and I by the hand and helped us climb our own mountain. Today we enjoy financial independence, but more importantly, we recognize that we too have the responsibility to teach others how to climb their mountain. Thanks Fred and Linda Harteis for teaching us how to climb the mountain in the game of life! Print Article

Harties is doing what it takes to be number one

What it Takes to be Number One
"Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that's first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win.
Every time a football player goes to ply his trade he's got to play from the ground up—from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their head. That's O.K. You've got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you've got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you're lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he's never going to come off the field second.
Running a football team is no different than running any other kind of organization—an army, a political party or a business. The principles are the same. The object is to win—to beat the other guy. Maybe that sounds hard or cruel. I don't think it is.
It is a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That's why they are there—to compete. To know the rules and objectives when they get in the game. The object is to win fairly, squarely, by the rules—but to win.
And in truth, I've never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn't appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something in good men that really yearns for discipline and the harsh reality of head to head combat.
I don't say these things because I believe in the "brute" nature of man or that men must be brutalized to be combative. I believe in God, and I believe in human decency. But I firmly believe that any man's finest hour—his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear—is that moment when he has to work his heart out in a good cause and he's exhausted on the field of battle—victorious."
This quote of Vince Lombardi has been a favorite of Fred Harteis for the last 30 years.

Perseverance is a key to great leadership !

Perseverance
"He failed in business in '31. He was defeated for state legislator in '32.He tried another business in '33. It failed. His fiancee died in '35. He had a nervous breakdown in '36. In '43 he ran for congress and was defeated. He tried again in '48 and was defeated again. He tried running for the Senate in '55. He lost.The next year he ran for Vice President and lost. In '59 he ran for the Senate again and was defeated. In 1860, the man who signed his name A. Lincoln, was elected the 16th President of the United States. The difference between history's boldest accomplishments and its most staggering failures is often, simply, the diligent will to persevere."
Lincoln has always been a role model and inspiration for Fred Harties.

Fred Harteis- X/S Energy press release

Iboai Declares New XS™ Sports Drink a Clear Winner - Fred Harteis of Iboai Says Clearly Sugar-Free XS Sports Drink energizes IBOs and Their Businesses Powered by Quixtar

Fred Harteis, president of the Independent Business Owners Association International (Iboai – iboai.com) has declared the newest XS™ Sports Drink a “clear winner.”
Ada, MI (PRWEB) December 22, 2004 -- Fred Harteis, president of the Independent Business Owners Association International (IBOAI – www.iboai.com) has declared the newest XS™ Sports Drink a “clear winner.” “Clearly Sugar-Free Orange, the newest XS Sports Drink flavor, is a great addition to the XS Sports Nutrition (www.xsgear.com) line of products,” says Fred Harteis, board president of the IBOAI.

Clearly Sugar-Free Orange XS Sports Drink replaces fluids lost through exercise without the sugar and calories found in other sports drinks. “There is great demand for XS Power Nutrition products,” says Fred Harteis. “IBOs know XS products are great for business.

Harteis critics

Fred Harteis Business Book Review

The Greatest Salesman In The World Author: Og Mandino

Best seller. Easy to read. Captures the imagination

From Fred Harteis - This is the sequel to the Og Mandino inspirational motivational classic, Greatest Miracle In The World. Og Mandino is a master story teller. As you enjoy each page, you’ll find that the book has remarkably little to do with being a great salesman. The focus is personal development and growing in wisdom and becoming a better person. Each scroll contains a life lesson. The Greatest Miracle has a well earned reputation as business and motivational holiday classic. You’ll find yourself going back to it time and time again. I do.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
The Greatest Salesman in the World combines the power of storytelling and ancient parable in this classic guide to the true essence of salemanship. It is the two-thousand-year-old tale of Hafid, an impoverished camel boy who came into possession of ten ancient scrolls which contained the wisdom necessary to help him achieve all of his ambitions.

Harteis - Book Audio Tape
Rachel Astarte Piccione of Audio File says
The power of storytelling and ancient fables makes The Greatest Salesman in the World a classic for all intrigued by the world of business. It is the two-thousand-year-old tale of Hafid, an impoverished camel boy who achieves a life of material abundance with the aid of 10 mystical scrolls. Og Mandino’s performance is even more poignant after hearing his introduction, in which this mild-voiced, world-famous motivational expert tells the tale of his own accomplishments through hard work and perseverance, subtly paralleling his life with Hafid’s. Many books claim to teach the secrets of success. Both practically and metaphorically, The Greatest Salesman in the World achieves this goal. R.A.P. © AudioFile

HARTEIS Critics : Publisher’s Weekly Said…
This is a sequel to Mandino's 1967 bestselling parable about Hafid, a camel boy who happened upon a young couple and their shivering infant. Carrying a red cloak, which his master had instructed him to sell, Hafid generously wrapped it around the child, who was the infant Jesus… As the new story opens, an older Hafid (who rose from camel boy to ``greatest salesman'' in the original) …Closing with ten ``Vows of Success,'' this is shaky theologically, but a predictable best seller.

Happy Birthday Rich

Happy Birthday Rich DeVos: Business Legend, Author, Philanthropist

Billy Florence: Dexter Yager and I have pleasure to know and work with Rich DeVos for a number of years. Dexter, Rich is a Grand Rapids native, right?

Dexter Yager: True, Billy. Rich (Richard M) DeVos was born March 4, 1926, in Grand Rapids, Mich. He attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids and married a Grand Rapids girl. Billy, did you know that Rich is a veteran?

Billy Florence: Yes, Dexter, I do remember that. Rich and I served in the same branch of service. Rich served in the US Air Force from 1944 to 1946. My service was begun several decades later. Rich has a birthday coming up. Believe he’ll be 81.

Dex, I was recently reading Pat Williams book about Rich, “How to Be like Rich DeVos, and saw your insightful comment about building a business from the beginning.

Dexter Yager: Rich and Jay built their business from scratch. They did it the hard way. They know what it’s like to be poor. It’s impossible to replace that experience. That’s what I did, too, and that’s what I told Pat in his book.

Billy Florence: Speaking of experience. Rich shares many of his experiences in his three books. Did you have a favorite?

Dexter Yager: I’ve enjoyed all three of the books Rich has written: BELIEVE!, Compassionate Capitalism and Hope From My Heart: Ten Lessons for Life. It would be hard to pick a favorite.

Billy Florence: Dex, my favorite might be the most recent one, Hope From My Heart . It describes the life-changing experience of Rich’s heart transplant at age 71, and imparts ten lessons for life.

Dexter: Good point, Billy. The life lessons in this book are important at any life stage. Rich covers subjects like persistence, confidence, optimism, respect and faith.
