What is "The Wealthy Attitude"?

A note from for Monday March 16 2009

Good day everyone and welcome to another shiny new week. And yes, Spring is lurking around the corner.

Good news folks, we're ready to start The Wealthy Attitude Interviews with some incredible business and thought leaders who are deeply involved in the workable responses to the "new economy".

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to chat with some of the upcoming interviewees and one of them caused me to respond to the question: "What is The Wealthy Attitude"? I was about to respond when they asked asked me to write my answer.

To all who have ever wondered what The Wealthy Attitude is, here was my response.

What is "The Wealthy Attitude"?
by Peter M. Comrie

The Wealthy Attitude is a philosophy!

The Wealthy Attitude is the solution for a world that is crumbling around us. It is packed with ideas and plans by personal development heroes, self starters, bootstrap entrepreneurs, geeks, flakes, house-based business champions and sharp business operators from around the world. It’s called prophet-sharing.

Their success stories give us the inside scoop on the best kept secrets of single operator business building, personal development strategies, networking, bartering, direct sales, living large, avoiding un-informed human dinosaurs, and living in full integrity by our own design.

We steer clear of those with a Paleolithic mindset on their full speed, head long, out-of-control race to the bottom. We watch those intrepid home and community-based adventurers that work with open minds, compact technologies, and smart-minded systems that tap into the “new economy” and give back much more than they ever need, or expect to take.

They practice living with an attitude we call The Wealthy Attitude. It’s a can-do, up yours, no time for doom and gloom, no time for the analysis-to-paralysis of the chattering classes with the “if you can’t join them, beat them” attitude.

A variant of The Wealthy Attitude is the pre-condition for success at the cutting edge, where the needs of this “new economy” are pushing up against societies and business’s failing old guard.

The entrepreneurs of the “new economy” are a willful bunch because they believe where there’s a will, there’s a way. They’ll give new ideas a try before rejecting them out of hand.

With The Wealthy Attitude it’s possible to identify the complex skills, styles and stances that make effective new entrepreneurs tick as this new economy gathers force and they rise to the occasion of new opportunities.

Yes, it is a “new” world and the question is: “Will you be one to rise to the occasion”?

The Wealthy Attitude is for the adventurers of the “new economy”, where they make great money, and dance around the dinosaurs.

The businesses we support have lots of room for growth, in fact, more that we can measure. They keep us hustling; help us turn dreams into business plans, and put marketing fire in the belly of some great people who normally don’t like sales. Our businesses also let us practice what we preach about living out loud, by our own design, and putting it on the line in what will be forever a “new economy”.

We are too small to rate as a small company, too independent to fit with any one organization, but we’re big enough and inter-dependent enough to be a virtual corporation. We make a point of establishing win-win relationships with many other fine folks who are trying out the “new economy”

Another question is: “Are you ready to try it on”?

Living with “the Wealthy Attitude” is certainly not for the faint-of-heart. Like the “new economy”, it is a whine-free, take charge zone, where the new entrepreneurs don’t back a way from a fight, but feel, like the old suffragist slogan had it, “I will not waste my life in friction when it could be turned into momentum.” They just aren’t prepared to give the right of decision to someone else.

People with The Wealthy Attitude are happy warriors. Cheer leaders, they know that laughter is the best medicine, and that “good on you” goes much further than “good for you”, and they clearly know that the business of “change” is about giving people a positive experience.

In this very obvious time of “change” new entrepreneurs are absolutely clear that when one door closes, another opens. And they certainly do not get trapped in what Alexander Graham Bell propositioned when he said “That we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

They know that this is the new beginning, not the end, that is upon us, and the next step is to take the next step.

Yet another question is: “Are you ready to take the next step”?

Here at The Wealthy Attitude it is our position to support all house-based business operators, and we have long advocated that everyone must be operating their own business. In this “new economy” it is even more relevant to be operating a house-based business. In fact, given the new conditions on the continent it is quite a sign of arrogance and fiscal irresponsibility not to be operating a house-based business.

The governments are not going to fix anything, and that’s not their job. It’s our job to ensure our life conditions. So, it’s an ideal time to step up to the plate for your own life circumstance. It’s the perfect way of giving the middle finger to the “business-as-usual” crowd, with their pat refrains that this is the way of the world, there’s not much anyone can do about it, that’s not what they taught us at Harvard, it was tried before and didn’t work, and my daddy doesn’t agree either.

People with The Wealthy Attitude don’t ask what the government can do for them, but what they can do without government. They know that their future will be dependent on them taking 100% responsibility for their entire life experience, living in integrity, by their own personal design, and with a community of like-minded adventurers.

And the last question for now is: “Are you ready to be one”?

If you are, drop me a note and we’ll set up some time to have a live chat. Write me at:
