For the month of April we discussed the FIRST HALF of Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson (Chapters 1 - 18)! For the month of May, we will be finishing the book, and discussing the second half on Sunday, June 7th, 2015! Dial number: (605) 562-0020, Meeting ID: 634-946-003.

When selecting a book for our club, I like to go for books that will make us stronger leaders. With the different sectors Steve has revolutionized, and with being fired from a company he started, I felt their was much to gain from his story. 

Summary of the Early Life of Steve Jobs
The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. - Apple "Think Different" commercial 1997

Steve Jobs is a fascinating human being. He has been dubbed the "Designer of the New World." He has revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. You might even add a seventh, retail stores.

Steve was adopted. His biological parents were both graduate students when Steve was conceived. They felt that it was not the best time to have a child. When agreeing to give her child up for adoption, Joanne, the biological mother had one requirement: her child must be adopted by college graduates. It was arranged that the baby be placed with a lawyer and his wife, but when a boy was born, the designated couple decided they wanted a girl and backed out.

Thus it was that the boy became the son not of a lawyer but of a high school dropout with a passion for mechanics and his wife who was working as a bookkeeper. Paul and Clara named their new baby Steven Paul Jobs.

Throughout the book, it explains that Steve felt a sense of abandonment, and it was a part of the reason why he became so great, he had something to prove.

In his early childhood, he grew up in Palo Alto. Silicon Valley was in development and Steve had employees of Hewlett Packard as neighbors. The technology boom was growing, and growing right before his eyes.

Steve was extremely intelligent and tested at a high school level in elementary. To keep himself entertained he played pranks on people and hacked systems.

When he entered high school, he met his soon-to-be partner Steve Wozniak. Jobs was the business man, and Wozniak was the hardcore engineer.

After dropping out of college, and serving a stint working at Atari, Jobs come together with Wozniak and form Apple.

This book is definitely a must read. Join us next month, on June 7th, as we discuss the second half of the book. Dial number: (605) 562-0020, Meeting ID: 634-946-003.

This week's call with Coach Mark Starr was on the topic of THINK AND ACT LIKE A MILLIONAIRE.

Do you know that there are more millionaires than ever living in the U.S.?

Climbing stock markets and rising real estate values helped create nearly 500,000 new millionaires in the U.S. in 2014, according to a new report.

The study, from market research and consulting firm Spectrem Group, found that there are now 10.1 million households in the U.S. with $1 million or more in investable assets, excluding the value of their primary residence.

That's up from about 9.6 million in 2013, and tops the prerecession peak of 9.2 million in 2007. It's the highest number since Spectrem began tracking the data in 1997.
Do you want to join the millionaire group in 2015?

When thinking about obtaining a million dollars here is a break down, per Coach Mark.

If you sell a product to.....
1,000 people for $1,000 = $1,000,000 (millionaire)
10,000 people for $100 = $1,000,000 (millionaire)
100,000 people for $10 = $1,000,000 (millionaire)

When thinking about becoming a millionaire, think about a product you can sell? What are you an expert in? (expert (n) - someone who knows more about a particular subject than most of the population)

Create and sell a guide book, based on your expertise. (Example, you are great at cooking, create a cook book, a catering service, etc).

Do it with energy, quality and excitement! Think, act and feel like successful people, you will be successful. Life gets better, when you get better.

Qualities of Self Made Millionaires
1. They dream big dreams
2. Love what they do
3. Committed to excellence in their field
4. Accept 100% responsibility for their life
