How Susie Carder Built a Multi-Million Dollar Business from Her Kitchen Table

Published

on

 

Susie Carder might be a millionaire today, but she has had to work hard and smart to get where she is. She has a 20-year track record of helping companies, big and small, develop and implement strategic business plans that result in dramatic growth. Susie’s business structures have not only helped clients overcome turbulence and uncertainty; they have helped create multi-million dollar businesses as well.

 

We asked Susie what her secret was, and she said, “Ignorance is not bliss, it’s expensive! It took me many years and many thousands of dollars to get to where I am. I have made millions for myself and have helped thousands of clients earn millions too. It all came from learning what to do and what not to do.” She shared with us six things that helped her build a multi-million dollar business from her kitchen table.  According to Susie, it is not about where you are right now or what you don’t have. Instead, it is about where you want to be in the future, what you are willing to do to get there, what you have right now, and your approach to each of these six things.

 

How Susie Carder Built a Multi-Million Dollar Business from Her Kitchen Table

 

  1. She Had Some Capital and Cash Flow

 

Starting your dream business without at least some money will not get you anywhere. You need to invest some capital into your idea for it to come to life. If you don’t have enough money, you can borrow from institutions, friends, family, or look for investors who will believe in your idea. To start off, Susie Carder had to supplement what she had with some borrowed capital (even from her credit cards). What are you willing to do to start your dream?

 

  1. She Had a Good Business Plan

 

Having a good business plan is imperative to your success. When you fail to plan, you are actually planning to fail. While up to 500,000 businesses are started every month around the country, as many as 80% do not make it past their first year due to poor planning. Susie says, “The way you plan your projections will either make or break you.” Before you start doing something, take enough time to learn plan ahead of every action. Know what to do, why should do it, how to do it, and get to work. You cannot reach your goals if you don’t plan how to.

 

  1. She Gave Her Clients What They Wanted

 

For Susie to grow her business, she had to think of her customers. By putting the needs of her customers before her own, she was able to curate products and services that were always on demand. It is very important that you give your clients what they want, even if it changes what you thought was ideal for them. Successful entrepreneurs know that the customer is always right.

 

  1. She Did Not Give Up

 

If this was what you’ve always dreamt of doing, why give up in the middle? It doesn’t make any sense sticking to the fight only to give up when you are halfway through. You never know when you will strike gold. All you have to do is keep going, work more than you expected, and get over the frustrations of being constantly rejected by customers. Choose to see the positive side of the journey, but don’t forget the challenges. Instead, learn from them and keep going.

 

  1. She Only Worked with the Right People

 

Working from her kitchen table, Susie Carder knew she could not do it all alone. That is why she chose to hire some help. This help came in the form of what she refers to as “good employees”. These are the people who kept Susie’s business running even when she couldn’t. Get people who are as passionate as you are about the business and they will treat it as their own. Don’t forget to reward them and create a good working environment for them. It’s the best you could do to keep your business afloat. In the same subject of employees, Susie stresses the importance of knowing when to let go of non-performing members of your team. As much as you might want to keep them, you have to save your business, so make the right choices by keeping only the right people.

 

  1. She Balanced Work and Life

 

Susie Carder has had to wear many hats, among them single mother to two daughters. Being a parent, however, did not stop her from achieving. When she was just starting, Susie was hardly making enough money to raise her daughters. Instead of working her head off, she came up with a work-life balance that enabled her to work three days a week and parent the rest of the time.

 

While most people dwell on the challenges they faced on their way up the ladder of success, Susie Carder talks about achievements and how she attained them. It is the passion and positive attitude that helped her get where the majority only dream about. The difference between Susie and you is that she decided against all odds, to pursue her dream – unless of course you also decide to do the same.

Published

on

There are very few people under the age of 21 to do great things and achieve great milestones that many people older than they haven’t achieved yet.

Prakash Neupane is a permanent resident of Kolhapur, Nepal and is 21 years old. He is a popular Nepali RnB singer in his area as well as in many places of Nepal. As he is also a music composer and creates his own new things on the music.  He is not only an rnb singer but also a Rapper, Blogger, Poet, Music Composer and social worker. He has won Tuborg Music Award for the best male debut male singer for his song “Sunana” and has been nominated for OS Music Award. He always looks forward to opening new horizons with his music. He’s already a well-known Rnb/Rap singer and songwriter in his homeland of Nepal. Despite this, the latest song he’s promoting got some type of EDM influence, keeping up with the same level as the current hits on his new Dance-Pop charts.

In his childhood Prakash used to write poem, faiths, gazals, however, he had stopped to write it in 2014.

This eventual transformation from a shy boy to extrovert adolescent also brought mutability in his areas of interest. He soon started to listen to Sugam Pokharel, Narayan Gopal, Nabin K Bhattrai, The Unity, Girish Khatiwada, Manas Ghale and other Nepali singers and rappers that made him appear in different school functions, gatherings, and fetes. Praises received at that time laid the foundation for his musical career.

Prakash spent his entire childhood in Kohalpur in his complete introversion. ‘I was very shy and never showed up on stage until my 7th standard. Slowly, I pushed myself into social gatherings more and started to wander in narrow to wide lanes and pathways of kohalpur. Prakash feels he had nothing besides himself to rely upon, so poetry and eventually songwriting became his main thin dig at something of poems and then poems to Composition of songs and that to gain a piece of rap music and he has more plans for still doing more, giving more at Nepali RnB and hip-hop.

There’s always something which had apprehended him to write the poems to rap. Basically, a rap itself is a branch of slam poetry. It’s an assortment of emotions with words. It was his emotion, feeling and self-awareness that motivate him to perform or write a song. These days he has my entire focus only at rap line even more.

He entered into Nepali music industry with his first single “Aaideuna” which was not so successful but “U Got Me” is his most ambitious project yet, which now has 1 million Youtube views! It’s helped him to gain recognition and success in the Nepali Music industry — fusing the mind of a storyteller and producer together to create a romantic love tale of survival. His latest, Arajakniti, is a political rap song about civil war, the local Panchayat political system, and Nepal’s slow economic progress. He told “Nepal had to deal with a civil war where thousands perished and then it took a decade to pass a new constitution. Those who had access to power became rich and powerful, but the general public remained poor,” he said, referring to the 10-year long civil war in Nepal from 1996 to 2006. “This is why I want to alert the political fraternity through my hip-hop music.” “From “nothing” to “something” and “something” to now again” More than that ” this feeling of self-manual realization and aim of executing something at Nepali music had been his strength.”

He has already released three albums, including 30 songs yet & has done featured with several famous Nepali artists like Girish Khatiwada, Amit Dangol & Jovan Bhuju and international artist like Delon & Marvelous. He is quickly becoming one of the most successful & famed Rappers in Nepal’s growing Hip Hop community.

This Is Why Your Next Super Car Should Come From Royalty Leasing Group

Published

on

Imagine driving the Lamborghini Huracan all year long in 2019, then switching it up for another supercar next year, all without buying either of the cars or parting with a ridiculously large amount of money. That is the definition of having your cake and eating it too for any car enthusiast. Sounds like the perfect fantasy, right? Well, that fantasy can now become a reality thanks to the revolutionary company, Royalty Lease Group, based in Las Vegas, Texas. Royalty Lease Group was founded by Houston Crosta and is set to be the game changer in supercar leasing. The company seeks to disrupt the supercar leasing market. This is why your next supercar should come from the Royalty Leasing group

 

The Royalty Lease Group Super Car Offer

 

The idea of Royalty Lease Group was born when Houston Crosta, discovered that there was an unattended market in the supercar leasing industry. This market comprised of individuals who could afford to lease a supercar based on their yearly income but did not meet the requirements of an ideal candidate for renting a supercar. Two of the most pressing requirements that this market could not meet were presenting a perfect credit score and great comparable car credit. This is because this specific market comprised of supercar enthusiasts who were either international personalities who have not lived in the US long enough to build up their credit or personalities who have all their expenses written off by the employer. So he set out to develop a supercar lease product that would satisfy this market.

Instead of just offering the average 30-day supercar rental option, Crosta decided to develop a 1-year long leasing offer on some high-end supercars. This way his clients could get more value for the money they would spend. He decided he would also offer constant prices that do not vary from client to client based on their credit on the down payment and monthly installments for the supercar leasing product. To top it all of, Crosta decided to counter the 2500 mileage offer on supercars from dealerships and other leasing facilities with a 7500 mileage offer for an entire year. And in 2019, thanks to this great offer, Royalty Lease Group signed their first client for a year-long lease on a supercar.

 

A 5-Minute Application Procedure

 

Royalty lease group staff pride themselves in their top-notch customer service and efficiency when it comes to the services they offer. In remaining true to who they are, they developed a 5-minute supercar lease application procedure to get you ready for your new car. The entire application procedure is carried out online, so you don’t even have to get down to Las Vegas. And in as little as 90 minutes, your application can be approved, processed and your supercar prepared for shipping to wherever you are. To sign up for your year-long supercar lease just log on to https://www.royaltyleasegroup.com. Take your time as you go through the array of supercars available then pick the car of your desire. The next step in the online application process will require you to answer a number of personal questions for the purpose of assessment. Finally, you will be requested to send your bank statements for the past 3 months and that’s it, the application process is done. After that hassle-free process, you will be one step closer to having your dream supercar.

 

The Future for Royalty Lease Group

 

In the first month of offering year-long leases on supercars, Royalty Lease Group has already signed on 4 clients and has 4 of their supercars already on the road. Since 2015, Houston Crosta has helped many car enthusiasts experience driving their dream cars through his car rental company, Royalty Exotic Cars. He now plans to fulfill the dreams of many other car enthusiasts all over America and beyond by offering unbeatable supercar lease offers through his newly established leasing company Royalty Lease Group. Houston Crosta is currently the sole financier of Royalty Lease Group. He is however in the process of seeking to attain equity funding from a hedge fund to enable him to scale his business further. Crosta envisions having at least 100 leased supercars on the road by the end of this year and expanding into Canada in the near future. Royalty Lease Group hopes to make the dreams of many car enthusiasts a reality. Isn’t it time you started living your dream too? Your supercar awaits you at https://www.royaltyleasegroup.com.
