I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced the feeling that makes you think “I’ve lost my mojo”, but this is something I felt when I lost my way in my business. I was somewhat dazed and confused and because of this my business faltered and I suffered as a consequence.
I’ve Lost My Mojo – HELP!! Continue reading

It doesn’t matter what business you choose to do, the important thing for you is that you trust the business you are working in and believe you can do it! If you have faith and passion in your choice of business then as long as you have that belief that you can do it and be successful you are going to see results.
When working in a home based business there are initially two things that are serious enough to really hold you back:
- Fear – where you are afraid about getting out there and making things happen. However trivial this may seem it’s real to the person who is experiencing this. And….
- Belief – Where you may doubt what you do based mostly (in my experience) on other people’s reaction to what you’re doing and the way this “doubt” eats away at you.
These things are either self inflicted in some ways or from the “opinions” of others who tell you to be careful or to forget it all together because “so and so” tried it and failed. Continue reading

I know there are so many people who may appear envious of others who achieve success. There are those who believe the successful people are those who manipulate people to get where they are. This is a minority whinging about a minority. How many times have you said “I wish I could have what they have got”? It’s very easy to say that you are different to them, or you haven’t had the luck or you will never be as successful. Continue reading

I doesn’t matter what business you are in, if you are required to recruit people or build a healthy client list, you need both communication and connection. Not necessarily in that order, but each of these are vital to be able to develop a successful business, especially where you need to network.
Have you ever noticed how the leaders in your particular organization have a particular “aura” around them? Some of these people have this naturally and some work hard at it, but the confidence they have not only helps them to communicate with ease, they very often connect with people before they even talk to them because of this. Experience over time and their energy, controlled and targeted to their goals have helped them to achieve this.
Communication Versus Connection
In these days of social media, email and many other forms of electronic communication, it’s very easy to communicate and yet still feel isolated and alone.
As home business owners, we need to make a connection to be able to attract people to us so they feel comfortable working with us in order to create the success we are all looking for.
So How Do We Use The Communication Connection Effectively?
Simple really, we should keep in consistent contact with our prospects and build rapport and trust. Connect with them through providing value and showing that we are available to help them at any time. Don’t pitch to them constantly. Do be understanding and have a conversation in you correspondence with them to build that trust.
This doesn’t mean that you don’t provide offers that will make you money. It generally means that what you offer them will be valuable to them should they want to buy. Good consistent communication will lead to a connection if you adopt this kind of technique. Nobody likes to be bombarded with offer after offer just because they have given permission for you to contact them. Be more subtle and respect your prospect and you will build a great following of people who will thank you for what you Do offer them.
I hope this will help you to effectively adopt the communication connection.
To the future
It’s surprising these days how many people have issues about all sorts of things in life and business. If you are in business of any kind, but especially in the home business arena it’s important that you stop playing the blame game.
More and more often people are looking for someone to blame for anything that seems to go wrong, whether it’s the government, the bank or any other individual or organization they can place the blame on instead of looking at the situation in the correct perspective. Continue reading
