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?

Bold statement, but something I believe in.
Welcome to part two of ten lessons the great Albert Einstein lived his life by. On this subject of perseverance he said: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
When this was discussed and shared in the mentoring group I am a member of, the statement made was that “perseverance is priceless”, which it absolutely is. When you are looking to make improvements in your life and business, you need to persevere towards your goals, but if you can add persistence in taking the right actions Continue reading
Don’t take offense please. This is just as much a note to myself as much as anything else to take full responsibility for what I do and stop complaining about things that don’t work because I haven’t taken the right action to achieve my goals.
It’s amazing how easy it is to get into a mindset of “you told me this would work” and then go off and not DO enough. NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING comes to us without doing some work. All the hype about the “get rich quick” business has led to many people assuming that it’s easy and all they have to do Continue reading

Although it is possible to make money from selling the products, it’s more likely that wealth will be achieved when you can successfully sponsor reps into your business. Continue reading
As with any business marketplace, the home business industry has to work around value. The more value you provide to the masses, the more chance you have of making the grade. Wherever you look in business, whether it’s small business, medium sized organizations all the way up to the large corporations, the common denominator is VALUE. Value for money, value to a person because they have a solution to a problem and so much more. Any business marketplace revolves around value in one sense or another. Continue reading
To say that impatience will kill you may be a little extreme, but it can certainly damage your dreams. After all, life is so fast these days and so many people want things straight away.

I know that I’ve been guilty of impatience and this has damaged my progress. Continue reading
Life is a place where a wise choice is required every now and again. I’ve recently been reading The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. In the preface to the book proper, there are 3 short stories that are relevant to so many things. Among them was a story of a wealthy dying man with twin sons. He gave them a choice of 2 things and then sent them away to think about it. Continue reading
In these days of so much expectation and pressure to do so much, it’s more evident that we should all take note of the old saying “if at first you don’t succeed”. Because of the noticeable “rush” of life in general, the opportunities are all there but also the need to be patient and persistent is something we all need to be aware of. Continue reading
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?
