According to Seth Godin in his new book The Icarus Deception we are now in the communication age and we are all artists, or we are required to be artists. There is a massive change in economic structure so perhaps he’s right, because the evidence is there. Taking art as the focal point, you will need to use your imagination to create great content and to bring people into your business.
I hear people who are so used to NOT doing things they make excuses as to why they have failed to do what they set out to do. I’m not just talking about people in general; I also talk about myself as well! It’s all too easy to set out to do things and yet when there is a small obstacle, there is an excuse to not do it rather than work through the obstacle and get the job done.
There are things that I regret and things I know I shouldn’t have done. Yes, it’s important to learn from the mistakes in business, but now I have made a decision, I know where I went wrong and I understand why it’s vital I don’t look back. I have made my choice of marketing method and now I am focused and determined to make it work!
With so many accusations of spamming and the bad reputations that are given because of this, the right training is absolutely vital these days. I believe that we all need the right training to do the right thing instead of being given the go speak to your friends and family etc etc. I know we are given guidelines on how to approach people, but why is it that so many people end up NOT doing the right thing?
Working with the team in my business the other day I was told that slow and steady was the best way forward. We were all told, in fact, that slow and steady is the new fast! Thinking about it seriously, it’s absolutely true…
Time management has never been a strong point of mine, especially when I was working a full time job and doing my internet business part time. I found out that setting things down and planning was key to any progress and especially achievable daily goals to enable me to move forward.
Are you a person who listens to daily motivational audio and this helps you be motivated to take action? What will happen if you should “overfill” yourself with so much information you get overwhelmed with it? Perhaps it’s time you let go of some of the information and become the motivator. When you’re constantly in a state of receiving information, whatever it is, your “cup will get full” and it’s time to free up some space.
When you’re in the online marketing world, whether as an outright internet marketing niche or as a network marketer who networks online (this applies to offline marketing too), personal branding is something a great majority of us should be doing. The question is what are you attracted to? When you go to an offline networking event you are likely to see several people around who will have the message “buy my stuff” or “join my business” and yet there is one that says Join Me. Which is the ONE that will tweak your curiosity?
We have all heard the saying work smarter, not harder. In the internet / network marketing industry we should also look to LEARN smarter too. Smart learning and being selective in what we learn is going to be the key to making a decent living on the internet.
Excuse me if this seems to be scientific, but you will see the relevance of what I’m about to explain about opposites attract and yet they can be the same. Consider a magnet – A magnet has 2 poles and they attract to each other. North is attracted to South and vice versa. When the magnetic field is altered a little then it’s possible, although not easy, for the like poles to attract rather than repel from each other.
