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.

 

What is an Entrepreneur Made of?

There are many people who come to mind when we hear the word entrepreneur. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are examples of great entrepreneur because they changed their lives by helping other. Our lives will never go back to what they were before computers because of these men and the choices they made.

Before the McDonald’s came along we ate at home or at a local restaurant that were own and operated buy a person or a family. The McDonald brothers who owned restaurants that severed the same quality product, a simple and effective operation. They ran their restaurant business on a few items concentrating on cleanliness, quality and uniformity.They did everything the same at more than one location. Ray Kroc seen this business model as a product. He knew that he could take this restaurant and copy it and open restaurants like this all over the world. His vision was to create his business by giving other entrepreneurs the opportunity to own a profitable business. You would be in business for yourself but not by yourself. Investing your money in a proven business model through duplication everyone benefits. Ray Kroc caused a disruption in the restaurant industry and changed may lives by supplying what people needed to make a dream of owning a business a reality. Each location any where in the world would have a business owner spending their own money invested in the success of the business and the brand McDonalds.

This is an example that shows us how an entrepreneur thinks. These brothers knew if they wanted to succeed they had to come up with a simple model that could be copied with same quality of the product and Ray Kroc could see these restaurants were the product that he could see all over the world. He knew that he could not do it alone so he helped others with a dream to own their own business. Helped them get started and he supplied an opportunity based on a proven product and those who took advantage of the opportunity are McDonalds’ owners. Franchising the business he made it possible for everyone to profit. He took ordinary people and gave them the opportunity to own a successful business.

Qualities of an Entrepreneur

  • A person who starts and supports a business of their own.
  • Uses their business to help others.
  • A visionary with a clear and precise goal.
  • Take advantage of opportunity.
  • Know that communication as a priceless tool.
  • Take emotion out of the decision process. Willing to make decisions and keep their focus on the goal.
  • Trust worthy, a team player and is supportive of the people around them.Uses direct contact and can follow as well as lead.
  • Leads through chaos knowing the risk.A negotiator who is willing to use personality skills to get others to agree.
  • Telescoping in and out, ready to make changes that will affect the business.
  • Use their business by helping others as they help themselves.

People who own their own business and control every minute of their lives are entrepreneurs. The way they live is important and working for others is giving up power over their life. They are willing to change to do what it takes to get what they want. It is part of the way they live is part of their identity. Entrepreneurs are people with a vision who start and support a business. They see an opportunity and act on it. They don’t live their lives waiting for a pay check they go out and create their wealth. Thinking outside of the box and listening to their gut is as important as breathing for an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs welcoming change around every corner, they have been known to shake things up just to keep it interesting. Disruption is a great tool when used at the right time. Entrepreneurs use change it to their advantage. Successful people are open to change because it brings opportunity. They stand out as leaders and are rewarded with success. An entrepreneur starts a business alone and realizes that he may own the business, but can do nothing without the people around them. They live a life of training and negotiating. They are willing to share their knowledge and opportunity with everyone they meet.

Life is our challenge that has no limits. Going forward is part of growing up, yet some of us rise above the standard for a happy life. We want control over how we live and the time we have while we are alive. The people who don’t settle, are willing to change and will do what it takes to get what they want. This is what entrepreneur are made of.

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.

Posture Yourself For a Better Position

Posture was so important when we were growing up, sit up straight, raise your head and don’t slouch. We heard that every day, my dad was in the military and posture was very important. It is the way people see you. You want to show your strengths not your weakness, he would say. So we did as we were told and we grew up with great posture.

I am in a marketing business myself and I can see why it is so important. People want you to take the lead and they put their trust in those of us that have great mental posture. The posture of a person can tell so much about whom they are and where they are going. My father was not only talking about physical posture he was all so talking about your mental posture. When you meet a person you want to leave a good impression, you want people to see that you are confidant and that what you do matters. You want to show off the education you have and make those around you comfortable as you engage in conversation.

When you are in business for yourself you want other to see that you are strong, capable and ready to do whatever it takes. People come to you because you are confident and that makes them feel safe. They can see you do what you say and take pride in what you do. Posturing yourself is not always easy when you are just starting out. Fear of the unknown and how people will respond to you, your product or your offer will paralyzing some people who think they have what it takes to succeed.

Many famous people are so much different when you meet them in person. While you see them one way their friends and family see them another. They have to put on a game face, so to speak to deal with performing in front of people. The talent they show off is only a very small part of who they are. So many of us have to put on our game face when we start, we want people to take what we are doing serious. We want them to take a look at us as the authority and fear keeps us from taking those first steps to putting on our game face.

That is why it is so important to practice what you are going to say and how you are going to say it. A singer does not go out on stage without practicing the song that they are going to sing and you should not call or talk to people without know what to say. One of the things I do is record what I am going to say and then listen to it over and over until it becomes part of my posture. I want to know what I am talking about when someone questions me about my business and I want them to feel confident that I am the one to show them how to succeed in a marketing business.

Everyone has the potential to change what they are doing if they want to, but you cannot give someone the drive to do it. They either have it or they don’t, fear will stop you in your tracks if you are not ready to do whatever it takes to get what you want. That is why you start your business you need to be prepare before you open the doors to let anyone inside. If you are in direct sales you deal with people every day and you have to posture yourself for you are your business. You know the products and the opportunity work, which is why you have chosen this business model to go forward with the goals you have set for yourself.

Practice, practice, practice, on the phone, with your family and friends and have fun because you are on your way to an incredible life style one that not everyone can do. You don’t need a better place you need to posture yourself in the place you in.

Our military will not go to battle without running drill after drill until they have no fear of battle and the ones that are not sure will never show their fear because it would cost them their life. My dad was in two wars and if he were here he would say… “Straighten up; get the job done, the more you do it the less you think about what you are doing,  just do it.” The worse thing that can happen is someone will say no and guess what? Most of them will, get ready by not caring about rejection, let it roll off your back because this is a number business and there are people who do say yes and those are the ones with the drive to succeed. You are in a place to guide them and that’s what matters.

Things You Should Consider Starting a Business Online

Starting a business on the inter-net is fun but it is work. Starting a site with your own domain name will show others that you are committed to your business. Letting your friends, neighbors and customers know you’re doing this is just another way to let everyone know you are taking this seriously.

Your site’s name (Domain or URL) is the address to your business. Domains sites offer domain names as low as $19.00 a year and come with a variety of options, including on site hosting and website building. Some give you a free page with working link options. You can use these free pages until you can afford to upgrade to a full website. If you don’t want to build a site you can have a serves do it for you, at a cost. Hosting site allows you to take many domains and host them all together. They allow you to down load your choice of themes and support different platform like blogging.

How to advertise your website? There are methods that are search engine friendly, cost very little or nothing and are simple to learn. As you start driving traffic to your site on a regular base it becomes second nature. The more people use your site the more useful it is seen by the search engines. That raises your page ranking which helps people find you when they type in the products or services they want to find and you are offering on your site. We are all green starting out, the more you do the better you will get.

The internet has more than one way to drive traffic to your site see the how to section. They also have a support phone number or e-mail in place to help you get started. The training they offer is to guide you in using their site. They show you how to set up campaigns, auto responders and opt-in for your news letter or emails. Take time to explore how it works set up a few campaigns. We all make mistake and that is part of the learning process. Education is worth your time. Use the resources available to see how your site promotion is working. Your advertising is worth more when you track your campaigns so you can eliminating the ones that are not work with something new.

Tips to get started:

  • Business cards are advertising you must have. Sharing your business by asking attention-getting question. Example: Are your supplements 100% organic or can I help you make extra money? If they show an interest get their card or leave yours. You can drop them in with your with your payments, leave them at any businesses on the counter, bulletin boards, at restaurants and you should never leave home without them to hand out. The best part of a business card is it is a challenge to keep your advertising simple while delivering necessary information.
  • Word of mouth is great advertising so hand and them out to people who show interest in your products or in starting a home business. People want to have access to those who leave a good impression. They may even ask you for more than one card to share with someone who might be interested. Drop cards are great they allow you to work a flyer that is not bigger than a business card, you can hand them out or leave them at places that people who like to read while they are waiting will find them.
  • Email marketing with opt-in forms show that you are not going to spam them or sell their email to anyone. You can set these up through an auto-responder site. They have great services with training and support to help you get started. These services will help you design and keep track of your campaigns as well. Easy set up or you can pay for these services.
  • Social networks like You Tube, Face Book and Twitter are great place for people to get to connect with you. Any where you are able to display a profile is great place where people can get to know you. Getting to know others is a great way for you to build relationships that last. People do business with people they like and know. Give a testimonial on products or services that you use and how they enriched your life. Videos and articles are great and you can post this on your site. You can add the important parts to flyers with pull offs (web address and phone number) hang on bulletin boards in colleges, grocery stores or any place that has one.
  • Doing videos like, about me or give a testimonial to add to your social media post and your web site leaves a powerful statement.
  • The Telephone is essential you cannot build a business on or off-line without one.

Marketing works on the internet it is a good place to start and building a profitable business. On and off the inter-net is you’re for the taking when you realize that education is the power you need to make things happen. Learning everything you can, by tapping into the educational sites that are on the inter-net. These sites work with you when you are promoting your business they keep you up on any changes. These sites keep up with the technology and teach you how it works. Just remember what work best for you now may change. Plan on checking for up-dates often, it is just a part of doing business here.

Changes to prevent spam take place now and then. Spam is a problem for all us that use the inter-net, so make sure your contacts have a way to opt-out of your advertising campaigns. Auto-responders where the only option is that you must use an opt-in form and allow them to cancel are the best way to do your email campaigns. Your goal is to introduce everyone to your site, your products, and services. Showing them your options and letting them say no if they do or don’t want it.

The more people you come in contact with the faster your business will grow! Do your campaigns with your customers needs in mind. Directing them to where they can find what they want and need. This is how they find value and they will come back for more. Make your site stand out by building value and off- line. You are in control so make an effort to promote with pride and you will do just fine. It takes time, patients you will find a way to make the inter-net work for you and your business.

Have Fun With It

Ready for some fun? Recruitment meetings are a part of the business. Every time we enter a room we are sharing an opportunity that will change someone’s life.

The fun starts as the doors open, you can feel the excitement in the air as the leaders enter the room. The music tonight is the sounds of happy people talking about what is going to take place. You look around the room you see your team members, newly qualified prospects, friends and even family. Tonight is about catching up with the people on your team, brain storming your next move, announcing a new product launch and handing out the awards. All is good and ready to begin…

The people you bring to these events have gone through your screening process and are open to the opportunity or at the very least curious to see if they are ready to make that commit. Now is the time that they can see you at your best and having fun. Show off your team to your prospects so they will know who they can always count on to share their experience and knowledge and they will appreciate the acknowledgement.

They love to show off their skills to. Fellowship is what brings us together we are a group of ordinary people who live fantastic lives. Your people need to feel like they are welcome even if they don’t sign on the bottom line. They have the character that you admire in a person that is why you invited them.

Leave them with an example that will stick with them. Have fun and to tell you the truth I don’t care if you take advantage of the opportunity or not, I just got to spend some time with people I enjoy. Not everyone is ready for an opportunity. I have brought you here it’s up to you to want it. Networking is nothing more than getting together with others, doing a little work and having fun while you’re doing it.

Every person in the room is there to support each other effort and take advantage of the opportunity to show off what they did and how they did it and to see if you want to do it to. When you bring your people to the meeting they can get answer on the spot from your team members that have been around this business longer than you.

They are more than willing to share their stories, so introduce the people you brought to you team, make them feel at home. After the meeting take your people for coffee or a drink. Talk about the meeting and find out what they thought.

Tell them why you are so excited about the changes in your life and how much time and fun you have. Everything you talk about is possible because of the decision you made to become an entrepreneur. We are the living example of what could be possible when you decide you what to work for yourself.

 

Taking Control of Your Life Style Is a Choice

Everyone benefits from taking control of  their life style. I you don’t like it change it. It depends on how you see yourself in the situation you are in and if you can embrace change.

You know the saying if you have lemons… People who have high expectation are there because they want to change their life for the better. They look for education, opportunity and wealth in every situation and are willing to do what it takes to get what they want.

The bottom line is they are open to new ways of doing things. This includes starting a business to support their life style or they don’t make the money they need and they look for opportunities to supplement what they do make. Either way the opportunity they want is straight forward and safe.

The people you want to qualify get that, this is a business and they are willing to do what it takes to succeed. They don’t want to be sold anymore like we were in the 50s and 60s because they don’t make business decisions with their emotions. These people have a higher level of intelligence, a higher level awareness and higher success rate.

People who have money to invest are not interested in being sold. They will listen to the offer and decide if it is a good fit. The people you want to qualify are the ones that will listen and can follow directions. In today’s demographics there are people who want to decide on the facts.

They want to see the results and decide for themselves if what you have will fit in their life. Trying to sell them with a lot of hype is an insult. These people are going to follow the training and have a very high success rate. The path is clear to them and they will succeed.

We are defining our mission of intent with this opportunity and these programs by showing everything. Putting your cards on the table is showing them the facts. The tool of success is what will peak their interest. Your offers like so many others have training programs and company support. What makes what you have different from the others? Why should someone sign on with you and your team?

You are the deciding factor

  • What is your intent? Your number one intention is, to make a difference in someone’s life for the better.
  • How will you present this opportunity? As the messenger of all opportunities to improve their family’s lives.
  • How will they know what my intent is? People know unconsciously what your intentions are. People that have a higher awareness level will see through the hype or sales pitches.
  • When do I show them what I have to offer? At hello, introduce yourself. Asks leading questions and listen to what they are saying. If they want to hear more they will ask. As you answer their questions and they will decide if they want what you have to offer if not they might know someone who is looking for just this opportunity.
  • What about e-mail contacts? All emails are based on the facts and by positioning yourself as their support by give them everything that they need to succeed. They will follow your lead when you present them with valuable tools that will support their success.
  • How will they know I am sincere? Give facts; be honest build a relationship by giving. Your company has a mission statement, stick by it and you need to have a personal mission statement of your own as well.

Mission statement

To inspire, educate and in lighten those who want to obtain a free life style by taking control of how they earn and experience life. Share education and opportunities to obtain a free life style. This is my mission statement. Everyone has their own ideas on how they want to run their business. Integrity shows when you communicate your intent. They will make up their own minds based on the facts.

It is all in the details

  • You are communicating the benefits and step to create a value system that is essential to success.
  • The goal is to build residual income using the tools and education put in place that shows a proven success rate.
  • Using this system you will have a higher rate of conversion with people who want what you have.
  • I am the messenger of opportunity. To take advantage of the offer is up to you.
  • I will support you so that you can reach the level you want to achieve.

If I can make a positive difference in just one person’s life I will have done it on purpose. To inspire others to do the same is my meaning of success. The people I qualify plug into these opportunities by choice and take advantage of the free training by experts. They show their success by doing what they teach. They use the products and are willing to share their knowledge on how to succeed with the company. You can move up the earning ladder with speed using the training or change companies with confidence knowing the education is solid and applicable with any company.

Taking control of your life style is a choice. You are the next person to make your life the way you want it by educating yourself and sharing it with others. If what you are doing is working, by all means continue. If you find yourself looking for something more, consider becoming our own boss, look for opportunity that will educate your rise to success.

Team Opportunity Are Creating Marketing Leaders

Team opportunity does not come knocking, you have to go out and find it. You wouldn’t eat something new without smelling it first. Get ready for an experience that will change your life for the better. You must take on this task as if your life depends on it and it does.

You are the leader of your team. When you start your business you will want a team that reminds you everyday why you are doing what you are doing! This is not a game or a dress rehearsal. You must work at this like you have never worked before. You will have times of doubt and frustration just like the rest of the team. Everyone has a journey that they go through as they are working towards the success. This is more than a job you have decided to live different the 90% of the world.

That means that you are communicating with others, yes talking. More important that you are listening to the other person and engage in what they have to say.. Showing an interest in what their concerns are and if they are qualified to start a business based on team work. Listen to them maybe they are only interested in making extra money and are will to work to get it.

Communication is 99% of this part of your business and that is because if you don’t listen and pay attention you will not learn what we are trying to teach. You will not be able to teach team building to someone else. The pay off comes when you are living the vision and realizing that your hard work pays more than the lottery will ever pay you. The best way to expand your business is to expand your team.

Set a time that you are reading and learning something new about your business. Apply your training and work on developing a well train your team. Your encouragement and guidance will go a lot farther as your team feels what they are doing is appreciated. The small things mean that you recognize builds the confidence in your team that their efforts will lead them to success.

The role you play in your team is to guide, encourage, praise, and develop a relationship of mutual respect and prosperity. So as you can see if you have developed a great team you will have earned a great team and there is enough wealth to duplicate over and over again.

You are not the person who plays the lottery, you would never trust in the odds that you will win this in your life time. Why would you believe that you could win with those odds? Yet you are the person to pick from the lottery of opportunity to make your vision a reality. Now you are a member of the 10 % that takes control of their life.

Don’t Feel Like Working?

Working hard can take a toll. Everybody needs time to regroup and take an account of where their business and their life is going. By now you know more about what I do and why I do it. I believe in the power you get from owning your own business. My time is the one thing that I can’t get back, making it more valuable than anything I have. I won’t take my time for granted.

There are days when I don’t want to get up and do what it takes to keep all the balls in the air. I am driven so I get up every day and do what I have to do to keep going. I am glad that there are people out there like me that I can learn from. I wish I could learn these things faster but my brain is still trying to keep up with using technology. Then there’s the learning curb I have, some areas more than others.

As an artist I have been successful in what I want to accomplish. As a marketer I am starting to get it and I am willing to share. I am not buying any more training until I get down what I have purchased. Step by step I will get there and my benefits will all ways pay off in one way or another.

This day that I don’t feel like working is not the first or the last. My rewards will come in knowing that I can and do what I want with my time. I have stuck with goals and went through the training and now I know it and not one person can take it away. I will apply it and accomplish my goals.

What are the things holding you back? We all have an excuse and my biggest is; is this really working why you don’t just give up. You know that your family and friends would be happier if you just stopped. You will never accomplish your dream if you can’t understand the training and how to apply it to what needs to be done. It’s hard work; I don’t want to bug anyone to join companies that I think are great because I know how hard it is to get started. I only want to show them the opportunity to see if it’s a good fit for them. These companies are fun exciting and can take your education on the market place to a whole new level. Most of the ones I have researched connect you to a top trainer, someone like Perry Marshal, or John Terhune .

Reality is that we all learn and process information differently. What I know is that someone of us that are expose to systems that have experts that are working in this field and making 6 figures plus. With a little extra effort you can do anything you want to do. The bottom line is you’re just getting started and see where it takes you. Do you really want to master what you are studying or are you going to play with it and then put it down like a child waiting to be told what to do.
