Note From the Founders:

Nothing is more important than doing what you believe is right.

Why did you get up at the crack of dawn to go to work today?  If you have children, it is probably because you believe you have a responsibility to provide for them.  When you get home from a long day of work and feel like you have completed your duty, it feels good because you believe in the work you did.

Everyone in this world believes in something, and our life choices are just a reflection of those beliefs.

The worst thing you can do is fight against what you believe in. It takes a toll on you, both mentally and physically, as you are always dealing with inner conflict. Anyone who has spent a prolonged amount of time doing something they didn’t believe in (I know I have), can tell you how difficult it is. Unless you feel good about what you are doing, you shouldn’t be doing it.

I heard this quote earlier this week and I have not been able to get it out of my head.

“There is a direct relationship between how many people you help outside your sphere, and how impressive the people inside your sphere think you are.”

Does that make sense?  Let me elaborate.

The more people that you help in this world, the more the people that you actually care about (your inside circle) will respect you and look up to you.  Think about the people that you look up to, or the people you think are just plain awesome.

What is their mission? I would bet each of those people is doing what they believe in and in their own way helping many people outside of their sphere.

Whether it is a CEO who creates jobs for others, or a volunteer who is providing access to clean water for those in desperate need, they both are helping others outside of their immediate sphere and that is admirable.

Vending is a $40 billion PER YEAR industry!

There is huge opportunity out there for any person or company that provides consumers with exactly what they want.  Right now, what consumers want is convenient access to delicious, nutritious snacks, and if you provide them for them, you will be successful.

In the 21st century business model, you can make money AND feel good about it.  Look around at some of the top businesses and business ideas in the last 10 years, they all have some purpose and most importantly they improve the lives of their customers and those around them.

Look at Apple, they decided they wanted everyone to be able to have access to 1,000 songs in their pocket, so they created the first iPod.  Apple has been wildly successful, and their fans outnumber their critics by 1000%.

 

The race is on for the first car company who can create an affordable, fully electric, emission free vehicle.  Companies like Ford and Toyota are investing billions of dollars to create this vehicle.

Why?  It is not just because it will help prevent global warming, it’s because they know there will be a HUGE PAYOUT for anyone who can perfect this.

Money follows all good ideas, and every idea that improves peoples lives is a good idea. We believe 100% in our mission of providing convenient access to healthy snacks and beverages, and we know that as long as we continue to partner with quality, like-minded individuals like yourselves, we will succeed in doing our part in halting the obesity and diabetes epidemic.  We will also revamp the struggling vending machine business.

If you’re reading this Crush It Report, it’s because you are a progressive thinker, a philanthropist, and you have a knack for finding elite business opportunities.  For those of you we have already partnered with, we commend you, and for those of you we have yet to meet, we look forward to changing the world with you.  Come crush it with us!!!


Best in health,

Sean & Andy

Increase Your Productivity By 400% in One Simple Step

 

Last week we talked about making sure when you set your schedule for the day, to set both the start time and the end time of your tasks and appointments.  That is the first step towards increasing your productivity.

The second step is to make sure that you work exclusively on your SINGLE assigned task during its scheduled time, and to protect that time by not letting any other task or distraction break your focus.  Research shows it takes an average of 10 to 25 minutes to get back on track after you lose focus on a task.  That means if you bounce around from task to task, you can spend an entire day working and get nothing done but still feel exhausted.

Imagine that!  If you schedule yourself an hour to sort out your business finances, but get caught up on a 15-minute personal phone call 10 minutes after you start working, you can quickly throw away 40 minutes of your assigned hour.

Instead of picking up the phone, just let it ring and work twice as hard to finish your task so that you can fully focus on returning the call.  Instead of taking 40 minutes out of your productive day, you will be able to take zero time out of your productive day and have an even more fulfilling conversation because you won’t be thinking about all the work you are avoiding.

Think about this, how many times has someone ABSOLUTELY needed to talk to you RIGHT NOW, but didn’t leave a message or call back?  If someone really needs to get on touch with you, they will:

1.      Leave a message

2.      Call back multiple times

3.      Call someone closest to you to see if they can get in touch with you through them

By screening your calls while you are being productive, you will remain on task and actually have more time for calls after you are done.

Are Energy Drinks Killing Our Kids?

 

Now I am not going to deride the benefits of caffeine and energy drinks, because as an avid coffee and tea drinker I would be a hypocrite, but I will say that there is a time and a place for these products…and for young people, especially at schools, it is neither the time, nor the place!

Did you know that 30% to 50% of young adults and adolescents consume energy drinks?  In 2007, there were 5,448 US caffeine overdoses, 46% of those overdoses occurred in children under the age of 19.  Serious adverse effects have been reported due to consumption of these drinks, especially in children, adolescents and young adults with preexisting conditions.

The Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics published a study about the health effects of energy drinks on children, adolescents, and young adults.  The results were not encouraging.

Do you think large vending companies think about this when they place energy drinks in schools?  No way.

If you want to drink energy drinks as an adult that is your choice, and the benefits of caffeine can’t be ignored, but just make sure you do your research.  Many of the energy drinks sold today are packed full of ingredients whose effects on the human body are not fully known.  It is better to stick to organic teas and coffees, as well as 100% natural and organic drinks like Guru.  Your body will thank you!

Why Gratitude is the Healthiest of all Human Emotions

This video is a fantastic case study in perspective.  Everyone is guilty of negative thinking sometimes, it is important to take a step back and think about the big picture.  No matter how bad you are feeling, there is always a bright side and it is important to reinforce those feelings.  Zig Ziglar hits the nail right on the head with this short video.
