Marketing a Bold Move

Marketing is an easy way to spend a lot of your money quick and easy. Partnering with companies to advertise their product is a great way to make money. Why not use your experience and knowledge to market yourself.

Face it if you don’t want to work hard, starting a business may not be your best bet. I don’t consider any money I spent as a loss. I learned so much from everyone I worked with. As a marketer you are constantly learning. I think my thirst for the knowledge on how marketing on the net works was more important than the money I spend.

I have been running more than one business of my own since the nineties. I have been marketing myself for as long as I can remember. I am an artist. I am interested on selling my work or product to people via the internet. I tried on line galleries and decided that I wanted to have a site that would feature my work 100% of the time.

Do to some unfortunate events I found myself getting away from what I loved to do. Art is what I love spending my time on. I thought I could do more and found out that there were too many things to juggle. I spent less time on what I wanted to do. My intent was to gain knowledge to promote myself on line as an artist.

I found so many different great experts that it was hard for me to keep up. So when I found a good fit I stuck with it. I soaked up as much information as I could for as long as I could. I know that the value was in the actions not only the details. So many companies have great products too and I still use many of them today.

A life threatening event changed everything for me. I now concentrating on my art and my family more than anything I want to share my work with you. Spending more time with the ones I love is the best part of my life. The marketing is the easy part. Now making a move to concentrate on this business is a bold move I won’t have to travel unless I want to and I will be taking my family and friends with me when I go.

I am filled with gratitude to Mike, Jonathan, Jimmy and Brian just to name a few of my mentors for teaching me sometimes it takes a bold move to find your real path.

Motivational Seminars And You

Seminars are life changing event for the people who go with no expectations. Keeping an open mind is the key to unlocking the mysteries that keep you from moving forward. They help you unravel the patterns and break down walls you have put in place to avoid dealing with change.

These seminars designed to motivate you to think differently. They help you pin point how you fit in to your life story and show you that you have accountability for the choice and actions you take. Looking in from the outside they see that your circumstance. They show you that it is your perception of the role you play. They show you how to see things differently. What if the way you think has to do with the way you seen your situation and just by changing your thoughts you can see a different outcome? We carry baggage that we would like to forget and we tell ourselves that we have moved on but have we? They give you the tools to change your thinking, give up the baggage and rewrite the future.

If you talk to people who have been to these seminars that will tell you that it was great, life changing and they wish they would have gone sooner. They say the speaker seemed to talk directly to them, that’s because we are the same deep down. We have the same insecurities and we all have felt like a victim at one time in our lives. We walk around with defensive attitude to cover our vulnerability.

They help us to free ourselves from the pressure we put on ourselves by showing us who we really.They do this by bring out how truly capable we are and give us the confidence to make choices without fear or regret.They take the focus off how we feel and what we have to do to change it.

Why these seminars are not part of our childhood education is beyond me. If great motivators like Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy were to bring their talents to the class room we might see grow ups needing less therapy. There are seminars near you they may not have Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy, but they are helpful and designed with the same concepts and teachings that the masters use.

As you think about whether a motivational seminar is right for you, ask yourself this: Am I stuck in a rut unable to see the way out? Do I get tired of hearing my story played over and over in my head like a bad movie? Are my friends tired of hearing my whining? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may consider going to one of these seminars. It may just change who you think you are and open options that you did not know were possible.Think about how your business will benefit after you look and think with accountability in your role as a business owner.

Who Is Taking the Responsibility?

Even when the days are long someone has to take responsibility for your business. Your days are long and you are really thinking about giving up. That’s right you are feeling over whelmed. Starting this internet business is more work than you thought it would be. What are you going to do? Go back to working for someone else is an option and so is moving forward with what you have started and dive in to it like your live depends on it.

Some people lack the discipline it takes to succeed at a business. They start a business because they think they can get rich over night. If you’re a lazy person you will not succeed at a business or anything else. Never under-estimate your own laziness and lack of responsibility. It’s not working the way you think it should, so there for it is someone else’s fault. They hold others accountable for their decisions and look for excuses to why things are not working.

You are not succeeding because you lack responsibility and accountability for your actions. I cannot help those who will not help themselves. This is your life and how do you live it? You can work for others and let your employer control your life. If you are waiting for something great to happen you are not making decisions to change what is not right in your life. Buy not making these decisions you are waiting for someone else to make the decisions for you. Procrastination is not a skill it is a lack of control. It shows others that they are not important, that you don’t care if things get done because you don’t want to do it or someone will come along and do it for you.

Your job as a business owner is to develop skill that you will need to become successful. When you put the responsibility on to someone else you hold them accountable. If you don’t want to do the work it takes, you are better off working for someone else. Let them schedule how much you are going to have off to spend with your family and friends. Go can’t just sit there and wait for things to change.

Does your job take care of you when you are sick or comfort you when you lose someone who you love? I’m not saying that you are lazy because you work for someone else. If that works for you that’s fine, so don’t complain that you don’t get enough money, credit or time because you have given that power to your employer. Take responsibility for your choices. You do what you do, because it makes you feel good when you are doing it. No one twisted your arm to start to start a business.

You may think you’re not in control because of your responsibilities to your family, yet you do nothing to change your situation. This is too hard, is an excuse that most people use. I tell you that you can do what you put your mind to. It is up to you to get the skills you need to enrich your life. It is amazing what you can do if you don’t give up. No one said it would be easy they only said they would show you they way. You have to do your part, you have to take responsibility.

Responsibility is taking part in the opportunity. You cannot have the spoils without the work. If you know what you have to do and you don’t do it you have no one to blame but yourself. In order to achieve the success you desire you have to attack it as your life depends on it. Get your hands on the training you need and then take action on it.

If you got in to business to get rich quick then you are not going to see the gifts that you get along the way. You will give up before your journey is started. The journey is there for you to experience growing as a person. Learning the skills to help others by showing them the opportunities and giving them the tools they need to succeed. You cannot do it for them you can only show them the path.

Develop Your Business Character

To develop a business character you look at yourself and see what parts of your personality you would like to change. If you are waiting for others to change you are in big trouble. The people in your life don’t want you to control them. Don’t dwell on them, the person that is reading this is the one that needs changes. As we work on ourselves other will changing around us or is it that they aren’t changing we are. Your perception is what is changing.

Investing in a relationship is emotional, you are constantly working on it and yourself. You will want to bring your best every time you are with them. That is why it is so important to build strong relationships with friends and family. You can bring your best to every person you meet and that doesn’t mean you have to emotionally invest in them.

As I work on my posture, the way I look at people is changing. People that are rude to me or don’t take time to listen to what I have to offer really doesn’t matter any more. I don’t emotionally invest in what they are going to say or do until I see what type of person they are. I can tell in just a few seconds if the person is positive or negative. I have decided that I am a positive person and want positive people around me. Does that mean they are going to what my offer? They probably won’t and that’s okay. This business model doesn’t hinge on whether they join me. I talk to so many people, that a single person will not make or break my business. There are millions of people who what to hear what I am offering and if it is an opportunity they can see themselves in.

Confident and disciplined are a few things that successful business people have. They let rejection roll of their back. The people you partner with are the people who have a vision of a positive outcome. It is your outlook that determines what you want out of the business relationship. I want to spend time with people who are willing to succeed.

Would you be willing to?

  • Treat others the way you would like to be treated
  • Do just about anything to get to their goal
  • Trust worthy
  • Treat other with respect
  • Willing to compromise
  • Listen to what others say
  • Learn from them
  • Teach them something they need to succeed as a business partner
  • Take action and make decisions without emotion
  • Live up to your Commitments

 

The reason I ask these questions is because these are the characteristics that I look for in every relationship I have. These are the some of the things I worked on to become a good partner. Don’t be self deceptive, If you by-pass yourself when you learn these things and go right to teaching them to others, you are not working on your character and it will show in everything you do. Be ready to follow and learn the characteristic of people you admire. Lead as a teacher in your action and your words.

We want to think that we jumped into this business with a clear idea about what we have to do. We are not willing to become the person that we want to work with. As I develop in this business I want to learn as much as I can so I can bring an open positive person to each relationship I have in business.

 

Why Are You Working for Others?

Working for someone who has control over your life is letting them set your schedule. They decide how much time you spend with your family, when you can take your vacation, and for how long you can go. The wage you make will decide how much you can afford to spend and your retirement is based on the money you are trying to save. How are you going to send your kids to college? These are just some of the problems that we have when we are at the mercy of others.

Today so many of us live in fear, there is no job security and the unemployment lines are getting longer. These problems are because some else is in control. This is the time you take control of your time and how you make your income. Right now is a great time to check what direction you want your life to take. It is the time you take control of your time and how you make your income. You can make a choice to stay where you are and do nothing or make a change to increase your earnings. Take a part-time job to make an extra income, which will take more of your time away from what you want to do.

So what can you do with a little bit of money, time and effort? You can change your world. Truth is that you are the only one that can change your circumstance. When you have had enough of people controlling how you live, you will start looking for ways to improve your situation. I hear people say if I only had more time. Time is not the problem it is the one thing that you can count on. It will run out and you can’t replace it. So how do plan on spending your time? Do you keep doing what you’re doing and pray that things change for the better. Why not take control today and see what’s out there.

Starting your own business may just be what you are looking for, you can take your time and work towards replacing that job your that is stealing your time. Inter-net businesses you can start for a small amount thanks to technology. An inter-net business does not have the overhead cost of a traditional business so it is very affordable. You don’t have to leave your current job to get started. If you are not working you can use the time to become successful sooner. You can build your online business part-time or full-time, you’re in control.

Successful online companies that have a wealth opportunity are out there looking for people to partner with. They will train you to do your business on and off-line. They supply you with their branded marketing materials and a web site. Whether you start part-time or jump into full-time right away, you still have to work at it, just like any other business you get out of it what you put into it. Time is your biggest asset and it is best spent with established companies that have proven products and services. These companies are partnering with distributor that will help them build an online present’s and as they grow momentum, so will your income. They invest in you by supplying everything you need to succeed. When you believe in the business you are building, you invest more of yourself into it. A working business is going to transform your life will be easier to learn and promote.

Identifying the problems that others have, supplying them with answers and products to solve their problems. That is the first rule of business. The best way to find these companies is do research in the niche you chose to associate your business with. Health products, electronics and services are just a few. You partner with them building your business and theirs.

The products your partner company distributes are just part of the equation. You teach others how you started working with a company and show them how to keep up your online business. Now that technology is getting better your business seems to run on co-pilot. You get to spend time with people you like and trusts developing a relationship with people who have a desire to change their life and are currently working and doing just that.

The more people you meet the more you will want to share how starting your business has changed your life. Inviting them to partner with you will be easy because you know how it works, show them your business model and how it works. You can’t worry if they don’t jump at the offer, because you are doing what you want. What you do is not for everyone. Keep the friendship and offer the partnership to someone else. You can’t waste your time for anyone, move on. Whether they take this offer is up to them.

The time you spend working with others through your business will be noticed. Having more time and control of your life is what has driven you to this point, use that drive to leverage your business. Show others how to do the same and you will succeed in creating more than a business. You will open your life to a wealth of opportunity and relationship with people who take control of how they live their lives.
