In order to BE a self-employed person it’s important that you start thinking like one. It’s all too easy to find yourself reverting to that nine-to-five mentality. The most important thing to remember is to make sure you complete each task you have set yourself through the day so that you can believe that you really are working towards your goal.

I have recently been on a call with a top UK Network Marketer who had some real gems of knowledge and tips to share. He talked about things like building a proper business culture and the roles of managers, who generally appear to be “self serving souls” and leaders in the business. There is a fundamental difference between managers and leaders, because managers generally instruct and have big expectations to achieve goals, whereas a leader takes his team and works with them to achieve the goals set out. Basically, the leader takes the team “by the hand” and leads them to the achievement demanded by the manager. Continue reading
Many businesses don’t have a business plan these days, which can mean that this failure to plan is a plan to fail. You would be surprised just how important a business plan can be. A good business plan will set out targets for the new business and therefore create urgency to get results.

I have heard some people say to be successful you need to have perseverance to achieve your goals. This is true, but you need to be careful to do things the right way. Persevering with anything is good, unless it DOESN’T work; then it’s pointless. Set out your goals and find set out the techniques you are going to employ to achieve them. Be flexible and test out the methods you employ to enable you to reach those goals. Be persistent for a month, sure, but if there isn’t any progress, reassess and go again. You will find the way that works for you and then you can be consistent and persistent to grow your business and reach your goals more easily. Continue reading

To get the best from your website, you need to get highly targeted web traffic. This is the best form of traffic because the visitor is more likely to be looking for what you have to offer them. There is no point in getting traffic to your site just for the sake of it. It’s far more important to get 10 targeted visitors who want what you are offering than 100 non-targeted visitors who will come and go quickly without buying anything or signing up to your email list according to your marketing requirements.
