When you start out in home business, the first question that probably comes to mind is: “will I ever build my business to earn enough money to become financially free?” It doesn’t matter what the business, financial freedom doesn’t just happen overnight. If your business is selling products from your own warehouse or factory, selling e-books (written by you or reselling), digital download products, or offering a valuable service, there are some definite “musts” for Continue reading
Most social media marketers aim for eyeballs, but it’s engagement and reader interaction that will drive high page rankings and more followers, for increased profits. Getting more interaction on your site, blog, and social profiles is the name of the game.
Content is said to be the “king” and yet not all content gets the right interaction you may be looking for. You need that reader interaction to grow your influence and Continue reading
One of the most important things you need to do when looking to start and work your own business is to find your focus. It’s very easy to feel overwhelmed and lose yourself in the amount of work there seems to need to get done.
If you’re feeling that there is a ton to do and you have no idea where to start, would you like to know that each step you take leads you in the right direction? Would you like to narrow your “to do” list down to a few key items and Continue reading
Habits are developed from training, influences, observation, and practice. We develop many habits throughout our life, which some are good and others are bad. Good habits we can keep, but if one wants to improve their life the Continue reading
It has been said that networking with strangers can be seen as wasting your time. Effective networking is all about building relationships so start slowly and work up. Why? A friend of mine was complaining, “I’m doing 2-3 networking events a week – and I’m worn out.” I then asked why they felt doing so much networking was important and they replied, “One of my marketing goals is to do at least 1 networking event a week.” I then told them that their goal was just 1 each week, so why do more than that? The point is to build business relationships and gain trust. This means less is better, rather than Continue reading

With all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!!
I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons and my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real Continue reading
Having worked in the construction industry in the past, I understand the value of alliances and business cooperation. Even though I worked as a sub-contractor to the main developing contractor as an electrician, it’s vital to coordinate and program the work together as a team. Of course, the main contractor sets out the schedule, but communication is paramount to keep everything running smoothly with a successful outcome.
If one thing goes “out of kilter” it can create real problems for the project and is generally unnecessary in my experience. It may be as crazy as one “ego” against another, which is against all the principles which I was encouraged to work in. Business cooperation and building alliances between trade company representatives who work on any project, from the smallest to the largest, is key. “Getting on” with your work mates, no matter what trade they are in, is the obvious way forward for anyone. The value to the customer also improves because of the way the job has come together and completed efficiently.
This proves Continue reading
