The Soaring Eagle Group™, SEG: An Overview


What’s in a name? Inspiration, motivation, direction? How about: ‘A fresh view through an Eagle’s eye, every day.’?

The Soaring Eagle Group™ (SEG) was born years ago before the launch of my poetry blog: “The Soaring Eagle, a free soul, like an eagle.” The blog’s URL still carries the original name: earlyeagle1. Our eagle is both early and soaring 🙂

The group now embodies our Multiple Streams of Revenue (MSoR™) strategy, which can be summarized in the following excerpt from the group’s charter:

‘MSoR is a wealth-generating strategy where two or more money-making-machines join forces to provide a stable, sustainable and flexible ‘river’ of revenue for a family or a business.
T = P + (N x S)
Where:
T: Total Revenue
P: Primary source (Established: business, employment, etc)
S: Secondary source
Why is MSoR important?
  • To level and streamline the cash-flow of an institution (diversification)
  • To provide financial safety in the face of the loss of one stream, and/or the fluctuation in one or more sources
  • An opportunity to keep learning, growing and giving
  • Change in this manner guarantees continuous sharpening of vision, creativity and will
  • Lots of fun and an antidote to boredom as opposed to doing just one thing all the time’

Right now, there are three online businesses under the SEG:

We will dedicate at least one post to each business in the coming weeks, but for now, here’s a quick highlight of each:

TWM has been a trusted source of original wealth creation and growth knowledge and practices for more than six years. Now the blog is assuming an additional role, to be the ‘voice’ of the SEG, extending its news and updates to readers all over the world. TWM has recently incorporated select online advertisement through WordPress’s WordAds™, to participate financially in the SEG’s MSoR strategy.

StoreFour is an innovative online store geared towards promoting vibrant, balanced lifestyles through products under the theme: ‘Be, Love. Create and Live.’ A new Venture is a previous post on TWM capturing some thoughts about StoreFour.

CanFour is an original art and craftsmanship online store, focusing on handmade wooden products. You may also read this previous post on woodworking.

The long-term vision is to keep these business elements integrated through digital links, as well as organizational solid and/or dotted lines.

The group is working on adding a fifth element during the coming months, and also investigating moving into a multidimensional business hierarchy, which would integrate the existing elements in a larger business model. More on that as relevant details become available and ready to share.

The SEG is active on Linkedin. You may visit the SEG business page here.

Stay tuned, and be truly wealthy!

Woodworking: A Sleeping Talent to Explore


‘A sleeping talent is a gift one has, but they are not fully aware of its existence.’

Most of the time it takes doing something that requires using such talent in order to wake it up. It doesn’t have to be artistic though. Being good with numbers, for example, is a gift, which could come in handy one way or another, and be awaken by a genuine need (trying to figure out where all the money is going to 🙂

Recently, I’ve noticed an increasing interest in anything wood. Also noticed liking to go to hardware stores, enjoying the smell of wood, and exploring woodworking tools, raw wood boards and blocks.

It turned out that that was an actual sleeping talent (which might have its roots back in the childhood days), and when put to the test produced two handmade products, now posted on an aspiring new Etsy store, CanFour.

 

 

Of course, monetizing a genuine/original talent comes with few considerations:

  • Is it going to stay fresh and vibrant as product and financial concerns come into play?
  • While producing one item is exciting and engaging, creating a product line is a different story
  • Is there a market and what would drive sales?
  • Is an online store the right business model?

Some might argue that business, namely marketing and sales, carries an artistic spirit. I’d agree, but this is a different flavor of art.

In this case, the business vision drove creativity! The decision to start an Etsy store as an element of a Multiple Streams of Income (MSOI) strategy preceded finding product ideas, let alone alone production. I’ve found that quite interesting. I guess the lesson here is the following:

‘It doesn’t really matter where and how innovation kicks in; whether it’s a hunch while taking a walk in the mountains, or an insight popping up during a deliberate planning session. What matters is how you capitalize on that and bring it to light.’

Going forward, you will notice that The Wealth Maker blog is becoming a proactive ‘voice’ of the emerging ventures. Furthermore, it will continue its mission to deliver quality knowledge and practical tips to wealth aspirants from all walks of life…

Till our next post, stay tuned and enlightened!
