Whatever your business, or whatever your dream, you really have to have a plan of action. The first thing is you need to know where you’re going and so the end goal is your focus and how you get there is your task. To begin with the end in mind is the order of the day.
Keeping the end in mind before you actually start is the way to develop your plan. Every race has its start and end point. The same applies to a goal in your life or business. You may have a very big dream that leads to a very big goal. You may not be able to see Continue reading
When we think of successful selling, many think of making a sale of an item or service “at all costs”, but the word “sell” originates from a Norwegian word that actually means to “SERVE”. With this being the case, it’s more about service than selling. There are six main steps to selling successfully and each has its place and the sequence should really be adhered to so as to complete the process.
In this post I will talk about step 1, which is based on rapport. Rapport is Continue reading
It’s far too easy to get “bogged down” with things and distracted when you have your own business. There is also the tendency, especially with online business things, to assume that something “doesn’t work”.

It doesn’t matter what your business or job, if you don’t commit to doing something you love, you’re in danger of getting into the “half hearted” zone. This is more dangerous when you have your own business, but could also mean losing a job.

So, ask yourself if it is something that Continue reading
I was browsing through one site looking for ideas for a blog post. I came across a student who was reaching the end of his studies and who had just one year left making it clear that “he was scared of the future”. WHY?

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.
