Abuela de Miami is working with Bloggin’ Mamas, the Ad Council and Get Covered America to raise awareness about the Health Insurance Marketplace and the financial assistance available.

-that March 31st is the deadline to enroll in subsidized healthcare?
-that more than 1 in 6 Americans don’t have health insurance?
-that more than half of the uninsured could find insurance for less than $100 per month?
-that 1 in 4 Hispanics are uninsured?
-that 1 in 6 African Americans are uninsured?
-that one trip to the emergency room for a broken arm or a bad ear infection could cost thousands of dollars?
-that you can go to http://www.getcoveredamerica.org/ to get your questions answered?

“Trump”isms for Success

Abuela de Miami had the privilege of attending the Web,com Small Business Summit recently held at the Trump National Hotel in Doral, Florida during the Cadillac Championship. Web.com Tour hosted hundreds of small business owners in the south Florida area at the luxury resort and were given special VIP treatment that started with Preferred Parking, luxury shuttles, tickets to the golf championship, exquisite bites at the welcoming reception, an evening reception at the International Club on the 18th Hole aaaannnnddd…the Donald himself made an appearance and shared some of the wisdom that has made him successful.

1. You have to have “tremendous passion” for whatever it is you are doing.
– If you don’t have passion it’s never going to happen.
– You have to love what you do
– If you love what you do it is never really work
– “My vacation is my work” – Donald Trump

2. You have to develop the ability to never quit or give up.
– “People who quit are frickin losers” – Donald Trump
– When he experienced financial difficulty in the 90’s he came up with a slogan to motivate himself, “Survive til ’95”

3. Everybody makes mistakes; you must learn from your mistakes
– Use the laws of the country to your advantage, i.e. bankruptcy laws

4. Opportunity is the greatest when things aren’t going well
– The economy is going to get worse, there are some great deals available, this is a great time to have cash so you can buy

5. Momentum: many people don’t understand the word ‘momentum’. When you lose your momentum your business will suffer. Work to maintain your momentum

6. Pressure: many people cannot handle pressure.
– If you cannot handle pressure you should know that about yourself
– You have to understand what it is that makes people tick, but most importantly you have to know what makes you tick.

7. You never know what’s going to happen. Sometimes you have to take risks.
– You have to have great confidence
– You have to have great knowledge
– But you have to be willing to take risks

8. “One thing I learned about life: it’s not about money”
– Happiness is what it’s all about. Some of the richest people are mean, unhappy
– You need to do what makes you happy
– Having a family, a great life, real relationships supersede tremendous success!

Thank you Donald! And thank you Web.com for the special treat! #SmallBizSummit
