A Message Today’s Young People Really Need to Hear

(Deephaven, Minn.) – How do you go from being an underachiever to making something of yourself? A Minnesota man who learned that lesson the hard way says the key is to focus on the needs others.
“In business and in life I maintain we’re all in the service business and if you focus on what others need, you’re going to be successful,” says Rob Severson of Deephaven, Minn.

Severson credits life with giving him the kick he needed to get on track. When his daughter was six months old he got fired from his first job as an accountant. “I was told I may want to consider another field because I obviously hadn’t studied very hard in college and didn’t know much about my profession. That was a wakeup call for me,” he says.

When he got his next job – at Northwestern National Bank of Minneapolis – Severson was bound and determined to succeed. He passed the CPA exam,. worked his way up from auditor to president of one of the bank’s subsidiaries before leaving in 1990 and starting up his own consulting business where he specializes in helping people obtain financing solutions for their business.

Among the topics he speaks on, are the key to building successful relationships, how to love your job and make a living, and how to find inner peace. “The reason I wrote this book is the same thing I see happening on the Occupy Wall Street protests today. Folks are frustrated and want things to change,” says Severson who blames a lot of the problems our nation is experiencing on attitudes. He says in order to be successful today’s workers must be competitive and market driven.

“A team can’t win unless it has all winners. That’s kind of my philosophy. Our country will do better if we’re all willing to find opportunities and do whatever it takes to succeed,” says Severson.

So how do you teach people to win? Severson says it’s simple really. “You have to love God and others. You have to work hard at building relationships and you have to realize that your career is not about you. It’s about who you serve – customers, clients, employer.”

    I drop a leave a response each time I like a article on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It is a result of the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed. And after this post HELPING FOLKS IN TRANSITION AND STARTING THEIR CAREERS : Rob Severson | Financing Coach. I was actually excited enough to drop a comment 🙂 I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or does it appear like some of these responses appear as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I’d like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list the complete urls of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
