Do You Need A Work at Home Makeover?

Work at home is not as easy as you would think. When you get up do you reach for a cup of coffee before your eyes are even open? How you start your day will decide how productive you are. I wake up every day with my Grace alarm. That’s my Dalmatian she barks at the same time every day. She wants to go out. Before I get up to take care of her I take a minute to get centered. I have a routine that will get me ready for my work day.

I know everyone has a morning routine and if it works for you don’t mess with it. Here are just a few things that are a must for me. Stretching is one way to get the blood moving to wake up your brain and I do it through out my day. Showering I want to wash of the night and the day before so you can feel fresh to start each day. Getting dressed, I put myself in a different mind-set then if I crawled out of bed and went straight to the computer. It set the stag for my work day. Whether you shower the night before or the next morning it’s your business you need to get dressed. A well put together person shows that they are ready for the work day. I’m not talking about a three-piece suit. Just get out of your bath robe into comfortable clothing.

Drink your coffee or tea while you are going over your list and I eat breakfast to fuel my body. I want my brain to keep it functioning at its best. Doing some form of exercise is good for your mind and your body, if you work out that’s great. I take my dogs for walk every day. I feel better and so will you when you prepare yourself for your day.

Schedule yourself in the time you have is something you need to do if you work from home. Setting a time and a limit on everything I do so I don’t get distracted especially on the computer. Face book and twitter will lead me astray and I don’t want spend my day in social media. I have to schedule a time when I won’t be interrupted to make and return phone calls. Your schedule changes daily when you work from home especially if you have children. You need to plan so that you get as much done in the time you set a side for your business. I even put a time in to eat lunch and take breaks. Our brain needs fuel, water and rest that is why it is important. This is why I schedule them into my day.

I don’t suggest you change a thing if what you’re doing is working, you don’t want to mess it up. I found that if I don’t put something off that is on my list it build my momentum and it is easier to for me to get things done. Don’t ignore how important it is to stay focus. Distraction can defeat the best laid out plan.

As a mother I will not compromise the time I spend with the family. I take one morning and prep foods that I will need to make healthy meals for the week. I do laundry while I work and add one hour of house work to my workout schedule. It is a challenge to keep from feeling over whelmed some days, but without a plan I would just flounder through out my day not getting anything done.The key to working from home is to set a routine that works for you. Make a plan and be ready to follow through with your commitments. You will find that as you set it up that some things work better than others. You can change it, you’re the boss.

Taking care of you is the very first thing to schedule. We are willing to makeover our appearance to feel better about our self. How you work from home does matter. Do you need a work at home make over to feel good about your home business. You are more productive when you feel good, which builds momentum and before you know it there is a shift in your attitude. Working from home is a choice and getting into a productive mind-set starts with you.You have important obligations and building a business takes time and energy. Look at your routine and adjust it to support you and your business.

How to build Maximum Leverage in A Marketing Business

So how do I use leverage in my marketing business? What are the steps I need to know? These are questions that every business has whether your marketing business is on-line or in your neighborhood. People are people and they want something for the effort they put in to a business. When the steps are easy to follow they become second nature. Leverage happens when you learn a few simple steps and train others to do the same. You are training a marketing team with the same goals.

Everyone will benefit from a marketing team. You are looking for people who want the same goal as you and are willing to invest themselves in a team of people that are working towards the same goal. They can see how simple things can be coped and are excited to get started.

Build Maximum Leverage

  • Set a common goal, people will to work towards a positive outcome.
  • The more people you involved in the process the better your chances are to succeed.
  • People who are financial evolved have more to gain as the business succeeds.
  • Have a formula and training program that is easy to follow.
  • Keep things simple.

Leverage is the ability to get people together to work for a common goal. When several people work together towards a common goal, it becomes easier than with one person. Just think how your business would benefit from having two of you, twice the effort would mean you can get thing accomplished quicker. What would happen if you had a five of you working instead of two? If the tasks a hand took ten hours five of you would only work for two hours!

The more people you recruit and train to do what you do the less you and your team work to maximize your efforts. Sounds easy and it will be if you keep it simple. Have a step by step process for all your recruits to follow. A basic script that is easy to follow and will get results fast. You will gain the trust of your team if your focus is on everyone succeeding in the outcome.

Companies now are making it easier for you to leverage the training, auto responders and list builders. They want you to succeed. Remember that marketing relationships thrive only when both sides are gaining value. Working towards a common goal is the basis for developing a team. Now think of how everyone benefits when that team is duplicated again and again. Five team members creating five teams will maximize the amount of people who will profit for a minimum of effort changing their lives and the lives of their family.

Once you get the formula down you can create as many teams and transform as many lives as you would like. Growing and sharing is part of the leverage that drives people to give more value to the team. Momentum builds in the teams as they work towards the same goal. Your team is set up goals for their own teams and so on.

You are building a work force of independent business owners that know how to work the system. Now your team will have with the confidence to take charge of their own team of people, you are helping people become independent by giving them the means and the tools to change the outcome of their lives. These people are putting their trust in you and what you have is an easy to follow system in a company that everyone can copy and succeed.

Is It Worth Your Time

It is our time. We live in a country that people are free to make choices. The one choice we have is to vote on the Laws and those who enforce them on the highest level. I feel this is a privilege and that comes with responsibility to keep this freedom for us and for our children.

So when I was chosen to do jury duty, I could not understand why I felt like I didn’t want to go. Yes, I had 100 excuses why I didn’t want to go. No reason not to and now that the boys are older every excuse I had did not seem as important and I thought that it would be setting an example that for them and some of my friends that can’t be bothered. I thought what’s so bad about it and why was I called so many times and others weren’t? The fact is that depending where you live the pool for jurors is slim so you can get called over and over again. If you serve your time on a jury you can turn it down for three years. Then your name is put back on the list.

People who are able to serve are expected to serve one week or less every three years. So what is the big deal? I found the worst part is waiting to be called for the selection process. Once selected to enter the court, you are asked the same questions as everyone else. You can tell the judge and the lawyers your answer in privet if you don’t want anyone to hear maintaining your privacy. The questions are usually if you or anyone in your family has been convicted of a crime and if it would affect your choice to follow the law as it is written.

If you are luck, like I was you get picked for the jury. Lucky because you’re not waiting anymore and it becomes interesting. You hear the charges and then opening statement from both sides. You don’t discuss the case with anyone until the judge reads and explain the law to you. Then you go to the jury room to deliberate. Everyone must agree on an outcome even if that is to disagree.

The process is really not bad even though you have to do a lot of waiting and your life at home or work is put on hold. They should give you a pager that way you could still work at home or in an office. I am glad that I went through this and will probably do it again. I feel that we should be held accountable when we break the law especially when you hurt someone. I know the burden is put on the court to prove that the person on trail is the one in fact that has committed the crime. The facts are proven by the process the choices that we make good bad or indifferent and if you follow the law and how it is explained it becomes a clear choice. Guilty, innocent or undecided when you come back into the courtroom the decisions made will affect you as much as the person held accountable for their actions.

The big deal is that they have to send 500 letters to get 200 jurors her where I live and in some large cities they have to send 3,000 letters to get the same amount. We what to live safe and worry free so I think before you say you can’t consider that your freedom or your children’s freedom could be at stake. If you give your leaders the power to do this on their own who will hold them accountable for the choices they make. Men and women give their lives every day to protect our freedom the least I can do is protect the judicial system by serving. Is it worth your time?

Whether You Drink From It Is Up To You

You are not born a leader, leaders are made. Education on the correct way to market on the internet is essential to success. Education does not have to cost an arm and a leg. You can start out with the as low as 50 dollars.

You will find that you are gaining the value of education and the confidence it takes to continue shows in every part of your life.

  • Fear drops away as you become more confident.
  • You are not intimidated, you have education to back you up.
  • Put your education to practice. Action is the only way to change your mindset.
  • You are no longer desperate trying to find people to join you or buy your products because they will want to be a part of your success.

So what are you waiting for the one thing that you can not find in your journey to becoming a success, may just be your ticket to succeed.

The value you obtain from educating yourself can not be taken for granted in this industry we are driven and sometimes over look the value we already have gained on our journey to becoming successful. I am an artist and can use design in everything I do or create contrast in the way that I present myself to you and yet if I don’t show you how I have done this the value is only worth knowing that I can do it. When I share it with you the value gains strength and becomes priceless to the person receiving it. When the demand for my knowledge go’s up, my value also gains strength and I am measured by the wealth of knowledge not my income.

As we master one skill after another it is easier to see why being in this business is for some of us a no brainier. We are eager to learn as much as we can to help others while we are also helping our self. We are in an industry that is moving faster then the speed of light constantly changing with so much to learn and offering to others is the way you become successful and you are now the leader that you strive to be.

Gaining perspective on what people want and how it is packaged.

  • You don’t have to do a lot to sand out, after you master a skill that others don’t know or bother to learn, then you share it.
  • Teaching people what you know and how you achieved it is worth its weight in gold.
  • Financial independence comes when you go out and offer your own skill set in a way that others can learn from it.
  • Studying the teachings of the masters you gain the value that they have so you can share them with others.
  • Now you have become the person that has value and your leads have something to gain.
  • You have now position yourself as the person that can solves problems that other have and  it becomes effortless.
  • People are not looking for your company or products.
  • They are looking for the benefits that your opportunity has to offer with out the work it take to get there.
  •  Your opportunity or product is the tools to solving their problem.
  • You must have a complete business model to offer with steps to show them how to succeed.

So you have the education it takes to succeed and you know the who, what, and why you are doing this. How can you get your teaching to the masses? How do I get traffic to my business? What can I to do for money while I am building my business? I am showing you some of what you need to know right now. I use blogging to promote traffic by sharing what I know and where I achieved my education. So follow my lead. I have taken the education that I have gained from masters in marketing and ran with it. I am affiliated with them through the respect they have earned by giving me more value then the dollars I have paid. Now as my business is gaining strength I am privileged to share this teaching with you. There is no way we will all interpret these steps in the same way. The success you acquire is up to you go learn as much as you can. I will continue lead you to a steam of education, whether you drink from it is up to you. Here is to your success!

Mindset Of A Leader

Okay why can’t I seem to get in to the mindset of a leader? This is one of the first questions that I had to asks myself over and over. Imagine your self as the leader, position yourself as the leader and be the leader. So why is it harder for some of us and others seem to be the leader from the start.

Mindset is opening your mind to education and the endless possibilities of sharing that information. If you are reading this you have already gain value and you can start this by teaching what you have read, heard or experience to the people who are in your targeted market. You have chosen marketing and that is why you are here and that is why I am here.

Learn everything about your niche and share your knowledge and experience on the journey that you are going through. So many of us have a story to share. Why have you picked the company and the products they are selling or directing people to? I know the health products and how great they are. If I don’t share why, you will never know. Companies today have great websites with a wealth of knowledge filled with ways to promote the company and their products. Keep in mind these sites are owned by the companies.

By answering the questions your prospect and customers have you are giving value. Share what you know about your company. When you learn and are involved with them on a regular bases it becomes easier to help others make decisions to become a part of your company or a customer of the products you have to offer.

This is one way you can position yourself, as an expert and as you do this you will find that you will develop the mindset of the leader. You will be compelled to share what you are learning about the company and the products to anyone who will listen. Thus taking the roll as a teacher and teachers are leaders.

When looking for a mentor I have found that there are few that I want to follow 100% and so many have special qualities that I am willing to adapt in my profile as a leader. That is why I know the more you learn the more you grow into the mindset of a great leader. By taking the qualities I love about these people I can develop my own leadership skills.

These things will help you in your journey to become a great leader:

Start with some free training you can find on the internet. Keeping in mind most marketers are following the same formula. (Know your company, know your product, introduce your product, give away something for free.)  Masters give you a wealth of value and so much is free. Yet they can not make you into what you want to be. You will have to create a mindset free from fear and ready to act on what they teach you. Doing a search on you tube, ezinearticles, word-press, blogger just to name a few that can help you get started. Then there are always the free training you can get from the company you join. Why not take it up a notch and find mentors and soak in the free value and purchase the programs that will launch you into the leadership roll from the get go. So many of these masters have ways you can earn as you learn so your training can paid for its self. They walk you through the process of building your own site, managing your site and developing your own leads (list of clients or customers that follow you).

I found that I was lost is a sea of free training and needed a different approach an that is when I started searching for the people who have the finger on the pulse of what marketing is all about. I am a visual learner and the videos and webinars I found were my ticket. It gave me the confidence to lose the fear and act on my training. So sharing this with you was a no brainier. Get direction and a purpose for what we do. We are marketers that intend to succeed.

Mindset is you having the confidence in yourself and training that you have taken time to learn and want to share with others. Once you start you will see that it was in you from the start.

The way to the future is one step at a time, it is up to us to take the first step.
