stuck in  a rutAre you someone who feels trapped and stuck in a rut? Having read a lot of Robert Koyisaki’s Rich Dad series of books recently I understand how this can be. I can also understand how the system from government down is helping to cause these feelings. Robert Kiyosaki is of the firm belief that the education system is flawed and we are all subject to being programmed to be like a “slave” in many ways. I agree…. Continue reading

Have Faith In What You Do And Believe You Can Do It!

believe you can do itIt 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

Struggling In Your Home Business? Don’t Panic!

If you're struggling in your business, don't panicIf you’re in a position that you believe you’re struggling to get leads and grow your home business, the best advice I can give you is Don’t Panic! The tendency to do just that is overwhelming and then all you do is to promote without thinking and then you can be in trouble. Why? Because people will see you coming and run the other way.

What we all so in the situation of panic is to keep pitching our business and our friends get fed up of it and then they distance themselves from you. Sound Familiar? I have experienced this too and so I had to look for another way.

We are all told to work our “warm market” and then expand it out to include referrals and from those people so we can get more sign ups and grow our business. The problem these days is that there are so many ways to promote, we forget about the people who are subject to the constant bombarding of business offer and make money schemes available that are “rammed down our throats” to coin a phrase.
