"There is no shortage of opportunity, only a shortage of insight."
— William R. Patterson
"The answer to the challenge of income and wealth mobility is not through job growth, but through the three major vehicles for building wealth: the stock market, real estate, and entrepreneurship. THE BARON SOLUTION™ provides one of the few integrated approaches to mastering all three. In addition to creating more opportunities for people to build wealth, we have a responsibility to equip them with the knowledge and skills to take advantage of those opportunities and sustain their efforts."
— William R. Patterson
"For most people, a job is a $50,000 solution to a million-dollar problem. And if you have a million-dollar problem, you of course have to use a million-dollar solution. To leverage your time and build significant wealth, you must start a business. Despite what many people think, you are never too broke, your credit is never too poor, and it is never too late to start a business. Any situation of lack can be solved through a partnership. You just need the right business model and coaching."
— William R. Patterson
"The Law of Holes says, 'If you are in hole, stop digging!' One hour of sound planning saves you four hours of execution. If you multiply that out, one year of sound planning saves you four years of execution. Do you have four years to waste operating without the right plan? If you operating with the wrong plan, it is even more costly because you are needlessly expending valuable time, energy, money, and other resources that could have been employed more constructively. Realize time is your most valuable asset and you can never get it back. Never waste time by operating without a plan or using the wrong plan. You should always utilize the knowledge of experts. The BARON Personal Coaching and Business Consulting Programs can help you plan more effectively by leveraging industry best-practices, turnkey solutions, and value-added resources to generate more income and stability."
— William R. Patterson
"Contrary to popular belief, financial independence is not about achieving the illusive goal of becoming a millionaire. It is more about owning your time and living life on your own terms. Just ask the millionaire home owner or entrepreneur whose wealth is tied up in their residence or business, and their illiquid net worth does not allow them to enjoy the fruits of their investments. In keeping with the true definition of financial independence, it is vital to structure your wealth and portfolio in away that brings greater freedom with every dollar made. Imagine having back the 40-50 hours a week that you spend at the office to dedicate to your family or your untapped million dollar business idea. Ultimately, it is generating cash flow from your assets and investments, not building up a lump sum, that will offer you the fastest path to true financial freedom."
— William R. Patterson
"A significant part of financial freedom is duplication and automation. Whether you are an investor or business owner, your ultimate goal should be to find successful, repeatable processes that you can automate using systems and/or people. If you fail to duplicate and automate your processes, you will limit your success and income and be bound to the day-to-day tasks you perform."— William R. Patterson
"There are four extremely high costs that every person must seek to avoid: the cost of being poor, the cost of not having a network, the cost of limited knowledge, and the cost of using inefficient tools. Realize it pays to develop good financial habits. Those in need always pay more, whether it is a convenience charge, late fee, or the higher cost of buying in smaller quantities rather than buying in bulk. Those with limited networks are always the last know and the last to be helped. Finally, those with limited knowledge and inefficient tools waste not only their money, but their most valuable asset — time. To build wealth, you must make it a priority to consistently invest in these four areas."
"Great wealth is built not from lofty ideas, but by seeking out the needs of others and filling those needs. You can accelerate your path to financial success by partnering with the people and investing in the companies who also show relentless customer orientation. Wealth always follows those who can cost-effectively solve the problems of others."
"Knowledge is not enough. 80% of your success will be the result of soft skills--your ability to network, form mentoring relationships, strategic partnerships, and political relationships. Your network is a direct reflection of your net worth. Build one and the other will grow."
"Within every financial crisis also lies a golden opportunity. The question becomes, 'Have you developed the vision to see the opening and the knowledge, skills, and network to take advantage of it?"
"The most successful companies in the world spend billions of dollars on training and research and development. They do so because they understand how critical learning and adopting new information is to the company's survival and future growth. If you want to be successful financially or with your own business, it is important that you too have a training and R&D budget. As these leading companies know, the investment pays for itself many times over."
"Financial independence is not a rational decision. If it were a rational decision, more people would take decisive action to do the things that would make them financially free. Financial freedom is about overcoming your emotions — especially fear. The average person spends tens-of-thousands of dollars and twelve-to-twenty years in school learning how to be an employee or at best self-employed. They struggle because they have never invested one-tenth of the time or money that they have spent in school also learning sound strategies for investing, financial management, and entrepreneurship. It is this lack of knowledge that creates a paralyzing fear and lack of confidence in one's own ability."
— William R. Patterson
"If a man achieves not success, it is for one of two reasons: either he does not know the methods by which to accomplish his aims, or he is afraid of the struggle to unleash his own power. One of those reasons has now been eliminated for you…"
— The Baron Son
"Moving forward, entrepreneurs and small business owners will have to adopt a more holistic way of thinking and processing information to survive. As the majority of purchases are now made from emotion, superior logic and linear thinking are no longer enough to establish and maintain one's competitive edge. Those who most effectively integrate emotional intelligence into their business strategy will have a tremendous advantage in the marketplace and the ability to upset industry giants virtually overnight. Some of the high costs for those who fail to integrate emotional intelligence into their business strategy include substantial lost revenue, lower response rates to marketing, and greater resistance when forming strategic partnerships. Learn through BARON Business Coaching how you can generate higher profits, increased customer loyalty, more referrals, and find a deeper sense of meaning and purpose using emotional intelligence." "Accountability is the secret key to wealth. The CEOs of Fortune 500 companies have shareholders and a board of directors to hold them accountable for achieving higher profits in the most efficient manner. If chief executives fail to perform, they will be promptly removed from leadership. However, the average individual or small business owner has no external driver to push him or her to generate more income or to use better methods and tools. It is this lack accountability that causes most individuals and entrepreneurs to procrastinate, make poor financial decisions, and to take on unnecessary risk. According to statistics from the American Society of Training and Development, the probability of achieving a goal if you hear an idea is 10%. If you create a sound plan, the probability of achieving your goal rises to 50%. However, if you commit to someone else that you will achieve your goal and have a specific accountability schedule set up with that person, the probability jumps to 95%. You can nearly double your chances for financial success by having an expert guide you and hold you accountable for achieving measurable and sustained progress toward your goals."
