Giving Back

I make a point to only form companies with a goal of strong global impact. If I am not on purpose to change the world, there truly is no point for me. So, Scarlett Ramey Official is giving back to the world. It takes too much work to build a business not to have a global impact. Scarlett Ramey Official is dedicated to the empowerment of the global community of entrepreneurs, as we know the spirit of business is omnipresent.

Traveling to different countries, I have found the spirit of business in the markets, shops, tour companies, and cafes filled with beautiful foods. The methods that are used vary from the sale to tourist to their local community. This became fascinating to me throughout the years, as I was fortunate to gain different experiences and expertise we simply do not have the same environment, but the principles and most importantly the SPIRIT of business continue to be universal. Scarlett Ramey Official demands global impact buy giving back on a consistent basis. The following are three ways we make our small impact on the world by giving back.

1. Economic Support to Third World Countries

5% of ALL Scarlett Ramey Official profits go to entrepreneurs in third world countries. Each year we decide on ten different individuals from 3 different countries who need capital to formulate a business they’ve planned.

2. International Travel with Purpose

We travel to 3 different countries to give free business workshops. It’s important that we spread our knowledge to those who cannot afford business education. We host 3-Day workshops for those who can gather for this time with family members, and a translator to aid in any language barriers.

3. Third World Business Retreats

We support global tourism by hosting business retreats in third world countries and incorporate spiritual principles of the country. We choose business retreats based on economic need. If tourism is low, and needs help, we tend to choose these places. In order to truly immerse in the culture of each country, we visit spiritual and religious places to gain insights we just cannot glean at home. Spiritual business up-levels our experience from the discussion of future profit production, to how we can further impact the world using our unique gifts.

We love including and exposing those who are interested in world travel, regardless of their spiritual beliefs, to the rich history of global travel.

If you would like more information on how you can give back with us, while gaining access to one of our global business retreats, please email or Text your information to (206) 910-8690.

A Successful Business Needs 2 Things…

In order to start any successful business, there are two things you need to know NOW in order to start with confidence, and understand the direction you are headed, in order to put your best foot forward. These are definitely not necessary, but if you want to save time and money (time doing useless things), you’ll definitely want to read on. These two pieces are possibly the most important for success as you start any business.

1. Why:

The reasons, the “why’s” for starting your business will always be more important that anything you sell. Your Why is the piece that will get you through the roughest times because it truly is the core of your business. Without this, there come ebbs and flows that become difficult to surmount. The why is the light at the end of the tunnel. The reason you’ll stay on track, working through the hardest times to get through. It’s what makes it all worth it.

2. What:

You need to understand what you do. With. Clarity. Without this, you become hazy on all of the issues. Your purpose becomes hazy, your customer becomes hazy, and you end up selling ANYTHING to ANYONE, which means you sell NOTHING to NO ONE. This becomes tricky, as it becomes difficult to ostracize anyone, in fear that we are losing business, however, the clearer we can be, the more we attract even those outside our niche. People are generally attracted to those who are CERTAIN about the REASON they are in business AND the specific product or service they are selling.

To wrap this up, when we can figure out our DEEP why, and what, we become able to serve the world in a much DEEPER way. Also remember this is not a one-time-thing. Please feel free to revisit EVERY time you have a transition within your business. The what and why are to evolve as you and your business do, so think in terms of the next 90 days to make your specific what and why easier to discern. Good luck and I’m here for you whenever you need more clarity or just support through this very important process.

If you’re into it, and have friends you know you could teach these principles to, please share this blog and let me know in the comments what your What and Why are for the next 90 days!

Have you ever been in a slump in your business? That deep cave of the doldrums where creativity has been pulled stage left, your clients are non existent or responsive the way they used to be? You are not alone. Business slumps, as regular as they are almost ALWAYS seem to last FOREVER! When our business life is flourishing, we tend to take this time for granted, as in we believe it SHOULD be this way always.

Now there’s something to be said about our mental equivalent being this good, as you wouldn’t be in business if you thought it would all go to hell all the time. So because we tend to feel normal and easy when things are on the uptake, we become very uncomfortable with slumps, and tend to have no patience while we are there. The slump is truly a feeling of ultimate failure, as though the end has arrived, and our business is done. We also tend to finalize any idea that does not fully pan out. Oddly it is difficult to let an idea not succeed.

We attach ourselves to it being the only way through, when in fact there are infinite possibilities and this is just one. Yes, in good times, we all know this, but when we fall into any slump, sometimes these principles feel like “pie in the sky” ideas. Due to the nature of a slump, and the short attention span we have for anything positive, The following are three REALISTIC things you need to know in the moment to help you move forward.

1. Remember the slump means you’re alive

All of life has cycles, ups, downs, ins and outs. Think of the heartbeat. We would be dead if we just had the one end of the pump. We need the up AND the down of the heartbeat to keep our blood moving. Business is exactly the same. When you are in a slump, remember, this means your business is alive! This is a good thing. Our sleep cycle is also an up and a down. If we never slept, we would die.

2. Create a list of things you’ve been too busy for during the up cycle

This means that as part of the cycle, there is meaningful work that can only happen during times that are slower. Think about the less exciting things that must be done, in times of a low. Research, brainstorming new projects, or even just rest. We tend to have a very difficult time doing the insular parts of business when clients need you, or your product sales are up. All those things that feel important, but you’re too busy during times of success, can all be made into a list of, “I’ll do that later.” Well, sister, time to pull that baby out! Get on task and remember this is all part of what needs to be done.

3. Don’t take the “ups” OR the “downs” for granted

In both  successful times AND slumps, due to the nature of thinking they will last forever, we often take both times for granted. It may be weird to think we’d take a slump for granted, but we do. We wallow in self pity, and forget that the busy “up” cycle is just around the corner. This isn’t even positive thinking. The regrets we experience in our successful times include the frustration of not completing our “I’ll do that later” list.

The moral of the story is truly to understand both times of slump and success are temporary. Attempt to avoid getting egotistical during successful times, and remember the temporary nature of the slump.

Whenever a paradigm shift occurs, we end up witnessing new leaders emerge. The interesting thing is that these new leaders are often not the experts in the industry they work. Think about Elon Musk. He became the leader in space technology not due to advanced degrees in aerospace engineering, but because he could hold a large vision despite the actual experts who continuously refuted it.

Entrepreneurs into Leaders

The leaders of industrial paradigm shifts will inevitably be entrepreneurs, as holding an impossible vision becomes more important than any technical need. But why?

Experts have the knowledge, and can be found grounded in the basic foundations of their industry. In this respect they can be instrumental in micro industrial advancements.

Why can’t the experts lead the way in an industrial paradigm shift?

In order to revolutionize or shift an industry, we must shake the foundation of the industry. It takes someone outside the industry to question the foundation and ask the all-important question, “what if we could do it differently?”

How do we realize a vision without experts? We don’t.

If the vision is big or impossible enough, you have to understand that it will become a magnet for the best of the best in that industry. The brightest minds seem to be attracted to new and innovative things, but dare not question their own foundation. So the idea of being PART of a paradigm shift is the perfect combination of safety AND excitement.

Elon Musk had the best in engineering begging to be a part of his vision, and in one meeting, Elon brought up the idea of a solar solution to charge the battery of a Tesla as you were driving. A very privileged and assured engineer claimed, “With all due respect, this just isn’t possible.” The only response from Musk: “Do you want to be in this meeting, or not?”

Now think about the bravery of that question…. it takes a lot of courage to hold an impossible vision over the opinions of industry experts. It’s not better to be either, however it is imperative you get clear on whether you’re a vision holder or an industry expert.

Business & Friends

Have you been there? A friend feels they’d be great in business with you and wants to start drafting a plan, or your close friend comes to you with her dream and wants you to invest time, energy, money etc. You want to be happy for her without really getting involved. Are you really friends if you wouldn’t do business with them? Do you have to be friends to make a successful business partnership? What do you owe your friend if you don’t want to partner or simply don’t feel it would be a good fit without ruining your friendship?

Here are three simple  yet powerful questions to help you to figure out where your friend lies in your business life, and what to do about it.

Filter 1:  Do I like this person?

Well obviously, if they’re your friend, this is an easy answer. The only thing you owe someone you like is your inclination to listen to them. If I like you, I will listen to you. That’s it! These relationships are valuable and needed for our social life!
What NEXT:  You don’t have to be their surrogate mother, adopt a dog together, or go into business with them. They are simply your friend and the relationship need not go any further than that! These friends just stay at this level and you move on! If they pass this test, move onto Filter 2.

Filter 2:  Do I trust this person?

This is a VERY different question than whether you like them. Trust stirs at the deeper levels of our psyche and foundations. Usually the first answer that comes to you instinctively is the one you should follow. Have they shown questionable ethics in the past in their business, or personal lives? Are they a gossip? Would you trust them to hold your cash on a night out? Would you let them babysit for you?
What Next:  If the answer to this anything less than a solid YES, move this friend BACK to  Zone 1. Enjoy these folks as your friends, listen, exchange ideas with them, but these are not your business partner people.
If the answer is an astounding YES, you can move forward to the consideration phase. Do NOT commit to anything but allow yourself to strongly consider being in business with this person.

Filter 3:  Do I respect this person?

Respect is, yet again, much deeper than even TRUST! When you respect someone, therein lies a DEEP appreciation of the accomplishments, achievements, and knowledge they have proven to you over time. You can trust your girlfriend to hold your cash for a night of clubbing, but really ask yourself, what you admire about this person, and if those qualities are transferable to business.
What Next:  If you have arrived here and really think Laura, your clubbing buddy might not fit into your idea of admiration, move her BACK to filter 2, and understand that you’ll always consider her ideas, AND unapologetically understand you’ll probably never do business with them.
If you DO like, trust, and respect this person, you can somewhat confidently move forward in business together.
The main point here is to understand that you can be friends with someone without needing to trust or respect them. You can have business cohorts, as well as friends you’d never go into business with. Both are great! We cannot just have one or the other in life, right?
The key is to QUICKLY compartmentalize the non-business partner people through all three filters to avoid wasting time considering EVERY friend’s idea EVERY time.
Now, #GoExecute

As we get older, our dreams about life seem to change, but what does NOT change, is our belief about how long things should take. As a child we might think, writing a book will take years! We hold that belief in the marrow of our bones, keeping us in a space where writing a book is out of the question. Our lives are busier than ever, and who has the time, or rather wants to spend the years it would take to write a book? The obstacle isn’t the book, it is the belief in our perception that it would take just as long as we first believed.

Your Dreams ARE Possible

We can all agree that technology has surpassed the amount of work and time necessary to complete large dreams, but it often gets stuck around our deep held beliefs, even with all the proof in our faces. The feeling of dread many feel when thinking about writing a book is so insurmountable, that any up to date information is not even sought.

My first book took me 4 days from inception to print. I blame my own impatience and ADD, but if you can get seaming weaknesses pointed in the direction of productivity, they become strengths. My book was a thrilling, if not riveting book on Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, and how to go Beyond this chronic illness to a thriving life!

You’re thinking, “How do I get this masterpiece before Christmas?!”

The idea was even boring to ME! But my vision of lowering Hemoglobin A1c in my Type 2 patients was strong enough to carry me through.

My normal process, when creating anything starts with my “Why?” Why am I writing a book about Type 2 Diabetes? Sooooooo boring! My vision, however had to do with helping my diabetic patients feel free of the encumbering nature diabetes has on their lives. I wanted them to go BEYOND Type 2 (which became the name of the program). This vision, my reasoning for even committing to this process became my obsession with helping this group of people. My visions also entail much bigger ventures than I am capable of, with variables I truly DON’T know how to execute.

Writing my first book was a part of a much bigger dream that I had. It became a necessary detail of the dream. I admit wholeheartedly that this was not something I wanted to spend a ton of time on, but remembering my vision of all those folks feeling free of diabetes helped me get through it, as I truly DID want to simplify concepts for my patients to feel more powerful.

Knowing myself, if there is an option to do ANYTHING more fun than what is in front of me, I will. To sit in front of my laptop and write out the accessible science of diabetes seemed daunting. I had to be isolated with no other choice.

I decided to go on a ski vacation!

I don’t ski.

The magic came easily with my intention to finish this book in 2 days. We rented out this large beautiful house in Tahoe, and both mornings, we would all get up and have breakfast together, and then everyone but me would leave for the slopes. I sat at the kitchen table, turned off my phone, and commenced. Eight hours later, they returned, and I stopped. We talked about their adventures, jumped in the hot tub and had fabulous cocktails and meals together! They’d be so worn out that getting to sleep early wasn’t an issue. The same routine the next day, and it was DONE. Is it perfect? NO! But it was exactly what I needed to produce the program!

I made this crazy idea of a book into PART of a larger Why.

Recently I forced my 78 year old father to write a book on everything he knew about Dollar Cost Averaging. I now have a giant Why for him, and told him the book needed to consist of all the information he’d gleaned in his lifetime in one place. That way if anyone wanted the MEAT of his program, they could skip the whole thing for $7.99 and get his EBook.

The program will obviously break down each topic into digestible content, however, his audience needs the choice, as we are now a population of self learners. He asked how, and I basically told him to write out the outline of exactly how to invest in mutual funds, and then fill it in. He beat me by a day, and wrote the whole thing in one night.

Now I  had to publish it. I OBVIOUSLY know nothing about publishing: perfect place for me to start! I pulled up amazon self publishing and within the hour his book is being reviewed for final publication.

So, are you TOO OLD to fulfill your dreams? It depends on whether you have a vision bigger than your old belief system. Get your Why, and the rest will distill into details. You can do this!
