Can I Really Start A Mail Order Business and Become A Millionaire?

This is a question I receive quite often and even though I have answered it in earlier postings, I enjoy sharing success stories of other Mail Order Millionaires I have known or read about.

He didn’t have an office but relyed on a phone line in his father’s live chicken store on Chicago’s Northside. Years later they sold the company to STAPLES for $685 million.

Here is another giant in the industry that started out very humbly in 1956 selling office supplies door to door. Jack Miller was newly married and had a $15,000 mortgage. He didn’t have an office but relyed on a phone line in his father’s live chicken store on Chicago’s Northside. That way someone, either his father or his Uncle Abe, would answer the phone when Jack was out selling office supplies.

Miller had begun working odd jobs at age 13. He  wa s a soda jerk in a drugstore, a delivery boy for a dry cleaner, an usher at a movie theater and a pin-setter at a bowling alley. He paid his way through the University of Illinois, modeling for art classes, washing dishes, digging ditches and loading freight cars. He eventually went to work for his father, slaughtering chickens and cleaning droppings off the floor, before moving to various jobs elsewhere in sales and distribution.

At 27, he decided to go into business for himself, founding QUILL OFFICE PRODUCTS, which evolved into the first mail order office supply dealer in the country. His first month, Miller sold $960 worth of merchandise and made $35 profit after expenses. His brother Harvey, joined him in the business a year and a half later; his older brother, Arnold, joined the company about 20 years later.

In 1998 Quill’s revenues had reached more than $630 million; it employed about 1,200 people. The company owned a 350,000-square- foot distribution center on a 35-acre campus in Lincolnshire, IL and nine other distribution centers around the country. Since no one in the next generation of Millers was willing to take it over they sold the company they started to Staples for $685 million in an all-stock deal.  As part of the deal, Staples promised to retain the Quill brand; protect Quill employees’ benefits and pay; and retain executives, unless they made mistakes.

In semiretirement he founded the Jack Miller Center for Teaching America’s Founding Principles and History, a nonprofit in a Philadelphia suburb, which supports teaching early American history on college campuses. Sometime after that Jack was diagnosed with an incredibly painful little known uncurable disease, peripherable neuropathy.

Now  83, Jack has dedicated his remaining years and fortune to finding a cure. His wife Goldie, who is a bit younger tells him he will live to be 100. Jack says if I’m going to live another 17 years, he would like to live some of those years free of the constant, debilitating, de-energizing, sleep depriving pain that has plagued him for the last 18 years.

Speaking to a group of 125 people, including many neurologists at a symposium on the disease. His fortune was helping pay for the three-day event as well as millions more he has contributed to start the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy, which hosted the symposium. This nonprofit is also funding research at the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation, in Chicago, the John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore. Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. In coordination with those hospitals and universities, the foundation has started a peripheral neuropathy research registry of patients. Once it’s finished, researchers worldwide will be able to access the collection’s blood samples and medical histories. The symposium was one of the few times that the people conducting the clinical trials were in the same room.

Jack wound up his talk by telling the audience that this registry is just the beginning. There will be more. We think collaboration is critical so we can end the suffering so many of us go through…..and if Jack’s wife Goldie prevails, that he lives 17 years longer, he sure hopes that treatment and a cure is found so he can have some quality in the years he has left.

Jack Miller is a testament to the fact that yes one can become a mail order millionaire! Not only did he become one but due to his mail order business and the millions of dollars he made, his may be responsible for finding a cure for a painful disease that affects about 20 million people in America.

Learning To Love The Job You Have Can Lead to Your Success

Wise Words

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be sucessful.         —Albert Schweitzer

IF YOU CAN’T HAVE THE JOB YOU LOVE, LOVE THE JOB YOU HAVE!

    While many people say work is called “work” for a reason, it’s still possible to find enjoyment and inspiration no matter what your position. Instead of changing jobs every time you feel dissatisfied, consider changing the way you think about your job. Here are a few tips to make your workdays brighter:

  1. Build your relationships at work. Get to know your coworkers on a personal level. Ask them about their interests, families, or even weekend plans. Connecting on a personal level can often make it easier to collaborate on a professional level.
  2. Hone the skills you enjoy. Even if you aren’t  able to use  them in your daily job, you should keep them fresh  for when the opportunity arises.
  3. Concentrate on what you enjoy about your job– such as your coworkers, your schedule, your pay, benefits, etc. So many people focus on the negatives that they quickly forget the positives.
  4. Leave work at work. Before you leave work, take a few minutes to jot down last-minute projects and tasks you will have to deal with the following day. Then leave the list (and your worries) at work.
  5. Reconnect with what first interested you in your job– the company’s reputation, your job position, or learning opportunities.
  6. Think about what it takes to do a great job in your role, and grade yourself in comparison. Look for ways you can improve your approach to your job and take more ownership in your duties.

Get involved with every training course, extracurricular activity and committee you can. Not only will you build skills and learn new, interesting things, but you will also become more employable should you decide to look for another position.

Remember, your life is more than your job. Avoid tying your identity solely to the job you do.

I know one way to make you much happier in your work life and that is starting a business of your own.

You May Be At Risk for a Stroke or Heart Attack

Blood pressure, cholesterol level among key factors

Study clarifies four top  risks for heart attack, strokes. Having just one risk factor such as high cholesterol or smoking–can significantly increase the odds of suffering a stroke or heart attack in your lifetime according to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The research tracked more than 250,000 participants from 18 different studies over a period of 50 years. It is the first study to look at the risks for white and black men and women across the generations. Previously clinicians would calculate a patient’s risk by projecting into the next decade. Now, with such a broad data pool, doctors can predict the likelihood of a major cardiovascular event well into the future.

This information comes from a story in the Chicago Tribune reported by Bonnie Miller Rubin. Dr. Donald Lloyd- Jones, chair and associate professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and the study’s lead investigator shared his findings with the Tribune.

Q. What does the study tell us now that we didn’t know before?

  • A. We have known for decades that four risk factors–blood pressure, cholesterol levels, smoking and diabetes–are related to cardiovascular disease, which is the number one killer for men and women in the U.S. What we hadn’t appreciated is the long-term risks. We now know that whether male, female, black or white, the effect of the risk factors remained consistent in determining lifetime risk, regardless of when you were born.

Q. What do these findings mean?

  • A.  That regardless of your age, sex or race, if you have optimal risk factors, your chance of having a heart attack or stroke is really low. And if a peer of the same age, sex and race has even one of these factors, he or she has a dramatically higher chance of developing a cardiovascular event during their life span.

Q. How do you define opimal cholesterol and blood pressure levels?

  • A. Total cholesterol level of less  than 180, blood pressure is less than 120 on top and 80 on the bottom.

Q. Can you give me an example of how having even one risk factor increases your likelihood of stroke or heart attack?

  • A. Men who are 45 years old and have all four factors at optimal levels–in other words, optimal blood pressure,cholesterol and no smoking or diabetes–have only a 1.4 percent risk of a heart attack event in their lifetime. In contrast, adding just one risk factor raises the chances to 40 percent for men and 20 percent for women. With two it increases to 50 and 41 percent respectively.

Q. How much do genes play in all this?

  • A. At a certain point, genes do influence factors like cholesterol levels. You can’t completely change everything but you can trump a lot of that. By keeping these other things healthy, you can delay  the day when, say, you might need medication to take care of the part that you can’t accomplish solely through lifestyle changes.

Q. Are there other factors  that play a part in cardiovascular disease?

  • A. Sleep and stress clearly play into the incremental risk. We also know that shift work can mess up a person’s metabolic profile. There is some important research going on in these areas, but at the end of the day, it’s by maintaining the four big factors that you can dramatically reduce your risk.

Q. If you have less than ideal levels of  the Big Four, can you undo the damage?

  • A. Once placques start forming in the artery walls you can slow them down and stabilize them with lifestyle changes and medication, but you can’t make them go away completely. They’re still there, taking up space and potentially obstructing blood flow. So you can be a 35-year-old and have the arteries of a 55-year-old. That’s why it’s so important that young people understand the importance of their choices. That we really need to get our foot in the door now–while they’re in their 20s and 30s, even though heart disease might not get them until their 50s or 60s.

Q. Do you ever eat a hot dog or cheeseburger?

  • A. Unfair question! Of course I do. But that has to be done in moderation and it means I have to make a trade-off to reduce calories, fat and sodium elsewhere, and that I should go burn it off with a good brisk walk.

There are few things I can do to help you with most risk factors, but one I can do and that is to help remove stress from your life. How?

Attention! Your Attention, Please! Attention is Key to Success!

Once again I’ve come to one of my favorite newsletters for inspiration. THE INK WELL which offers great service and prices on printing for your personal needs as well as business no matter where you live. Check them out!

It’s amazing what you are able to accomplish when you put your mind to it and focus on the task at hand.

If you’ve found yourself drifting while trying to complete a task, here are a few tips for regaining your train of thought and getting back on the fast track to success:

  • Focus on a single tasking
  • Write down any disruptive thoughts
  • Fuel your brain by feeding an empty  stomach
  • Try aromathrapy for treating mental fatigue
  • Prevent distractions
  • Use relaxation techniques
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Reward yourself

Focus on a single tasking. When you’re working on a high-priority project, devote your attention to one and only one project at a time.

Write down any disruptive thoughts such as appointments you need to make, groceries you’re worried you may forget to purchase, or items you don’t want to forget to pack.

Fuel your brain by feeding an empty stomach. A growling stomach is not only disturbing, but it can also shorten your attention span. Great foods to fuel your brain include high-fiber, whole grains, dairy, and fruits.

Try aromathrapy for treating mental fatigue. The aroma of peppermint oil can increase mental alertness.

Prevent distractions. Turn off your email and cell-phone alerts, so you won’t feel compelled to check every random messge that dings. Also, log out of social-media sites.

Use relaxation techniques such as dep breathing, stretching your neck,a nd taking brief breaks to stay fresh and on target.

Drink plenty of water. Hydration will not only help you feel healthier and more engerized overall, but it will also help you avoid headaches.

Reward yourself with a small treat after completing a difficult project or task. Think of something you like that will make you feel good about your accomplishment. Coffee, lunch with coworkers, renting a movie, taking a bubble bath, or buying a new book are a few possibilities.

We all need help staying focused from time to time. With a little forethought, even the toughest tasks can be tackled successfully.
