Too Busy? Focus On The Basics

Too Busy? Focus On The Basics

Many times when a brand new person starts a home-based business, they think that they have to learn so many things before they can have success. In fact, doing this can sometimes be daunting and overwhelming. Does this sound familiar? You can get caught up in preparing to do your business however you don’t actually ever get started.

basics focus
Maybe you spend a lot of time going over all the advanced training over and over again. Perhaps you or someone you know are trying to tweak your website to get it looking the best or even spending all their time organizing their desk or computer so everything is just right.

Ok lets talk BASICS here…

There is really only one question you need to ask yourself;
“What are the basic activities of my business that lead to producing income?”

Make a list of the actual things you do on a daily basis that will lead to direct income. Now prioritize them and list just the very basics, the very core of what builds your business.

You will probably list the following:
1. Invite
2. Followup
3. Train

For example when you Invite people to check our your products or opportunity, you are doing an activity that will produce income. Do enough invitations and you will have sales.
The same with Following up with people whom you have invited…even more people will be interested when you do this. If you don’t followup you will lose out on sales.
Train the people who get started to do the same thing you did; Invite and Followup.

Remember that these Income Producing Activities are the Basics and everything else is secondary. Everything else you focus on that are not income producing activities, can tend to eat away at the time  and take away from producing income.
Make it HAPPEN!!!

Here is a Simple Approach to Start in Your Business

Here is a Simple Approach to Start in Your Business

take action now

There is a tendency among many who are first starting their online business
to think you must know everything before you begin taking action.

Maybe you just purchased a marketing course or you are getting started in a new program.
Instead of taking advantage of your excitement and enthusiasm, you watch every video,
read every manual and basically get yourself into overwhelm before you ever really get started.

Instead, try this simple, yet highly effective approach.

Learn one thing and take action on it.
Keep taking action on it, tweaking and testing it to see what works.

Learn one more thing – take action on that NEW thing as well as what you have already learned.
And, keep doing this until you have mastered the basics, and then mastered more, and more.
You don’t need to know everything, just put what you know into process.

That’s it in a nutshell!

Get into action, learn a little bit, take action on what you learn, rinse and repeat
then scale up. 
Your income, your business, your confidence AND your knowledge will grow!
Take Action!

FOCUS Leads to Success

FOCUS Leads To Success

focus

Imagine that you get into your car to drive to the store. You get in, make sure you have enough gas and that the tires are all good. You cautiously back out of your driveway and start driving.

While you are driving you turn on the radio and hear your favorite song and start jamming away. Then you get a text message and of course you know it’s not safe to drive and check text messages but you do it anyway.

Then a family member calls you wanting to talk about the plans for the weekend. You don’t have a headset on so you are driving one handed right now. Then someone cuts you off and you have to swerve around them to avoid an accident. JERK!

You feel like yelling at them but you hold your temper. but you continue with your phone call, then you get another call and you tell him to hold on. This time it’s your friend giving you the latest gossip on what is happening at their workplace!

The song changes on the radio and it’s a song that you don’t like, so you start fumbling for the controls to switch the station, then you remember your brother was on the other line. As you do all of this,you didn’t even notice that you missed your exit for the store about 2 miles back!

You get ready to turn around and realize that you have a flat tire and you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere!  You had every intention to get to your destination but ended up missing it and ended up someplace else. Has that ever happened to you?

In almost all of the above activities,  you lacked Complete FOCUS.

Let’s take the example and look at your home business.
Are you where you want to be? Have you reached all your goals or do you feel like you are spinning your wheels? Perhaps you lack FOCUS however don’t worry because this happens to all of us.

Here are 5 things you can do to make sure you FOCUS on your home business:

1. Schedule 1 to 2 hours every day to work on your business. If you don’t schedule it…most likely it won’t happen. You may have to sacrifice things like TV time and other time wasters to make it happen.

2. Work on your business the same time every day. This way you get into a habit and it will become easier for you to make it happen.

3. Have a daily “Method Of Operation” so you know exactly what you are supposed to be working on. For example, Writing a blog post, submitting it to social media sites, Inviting people to check out your opportunity, Following-up with prospects. Get very specific on what you will be doing. Create a checklist so you can track your progress.

4. Close out the distractions! If you use Facebook as part of your marketing…do your tasks and then CLOSE it. Same with your email. Focus on the one task and then close it down so you are not tempted to get into time-wasting activities. Instant messaging (gossiping) with your friends, watching cat videos on Youtube and just general web surfing doesn’t do anything for your business.

5. Focus on the RIGHT (IPA’s ) Income Producing Activities that will bring you sales! If it’s not something that will eventually bring you or your team new customers, recruits and sales it’s not worth doing. Organizing your desk, trying to create your own training or system (if you already have one) is not a productive activity.

If you have a marketing system to follow you should be introducing people to it and teaching others to do the same. Focus, Focus, Focus on the Income Producing Activities!

Lack of focus is one of the top reasons people fail at their home business. Take action and FOCUS and you WILL have SUCCESS! If you are looking for a SYSTEM where you can stay focused on the right income-producing activities, check out what I recommend below.
You Can Do It!

Thank God it’s Friday… Oh it’s MONDAY! (TGIM)

Thank God it’s Friday… Oh it’s MONDAY! (TGIM)

I want to start this post by saying that no matter what day of the week it is, I am extremely grateful to God that he has allowed me to see another day.

monday

Now, when you hear, “Thank God It’s Friday” (TGIF), what is comes to mind?
Relief, no more work for me!?
Excitement?
Peace?
It’s the weekend… Party time?

The way our society and work is designed, most people get excited and just live for the weekends. Usually that means no job to go to for a couple of days, spending time with friends and family, relaxing or doing some yard work, play or watch sports and have fun.

Ok, how do You feel about MONDAY?
What is your first thought or feeling when you hear that word?
Is it the opposite of what I just said when it comes to the word Friday?

Hey I understand it’s not the same for everyone, some people really enjoy their jobs and that is totally great.
But the truth is that a majority of the people in our society don’t. In fact, late Sunday night can get kind of depressing and even stressful for many because they are thinking of going back and having to get into the “Rat Race” again…

– Having to wake up to an alarm
– Driving in busy traffic
– Working with a Boss or some Co-workers they don’t like
– Not getting recognized enough for the work they do
– The constant fear of losing that job due to down-sizing
and the list goes on and on.

Now again I respect that not everyone has the same thoughts or feelings, but I would bet that a Big percentage of everyone reading this has experienced some or all of these fears on a weekly basis. How do you solve this problem? How do you get to the point where you say, Thank God it’s Monday – “TGIM”!

There are probably many options that can get you to this point however the one option that I know about is starting a home-based business and becoming your own boss. In fact, many people are starting to realize the same thing. Every day a higher percentage of people out there in the marketplace are starting up a home business to earn some extra income and/or to get to that point where they can have options on how and when they work.

The Internet for the most part is what is helping most of these people make it happen.
Just look around at the trends right now…

Mommy Bloggers
– Internet Marketing / Affiliate Marketing
– Online stores like Ebay, Amazon
– Ebook sales (Think Kindle)
– Mobile Apps
and again the list goes on and on.

The Internet has opened up the doors of possibility for all kinds of ventures. It’s made it so you can start a global business right from a little old clunky laptop no matter where you are at in the world.

Now I understand that most people are saying to themselves right now, “I don’t know how to do any of that!”
All it takes is the right opportunity, systems and a mentor like myself and you can really start an online business and get to the point where you can look forward to those late Sunday nights getting prepared for the start of a new week and say, “Thank God it’s Monday!”

If this is you check out the video below and review the opportunity I recommend.

Don’t Allow Doubt to Hold You Back

Don’t Allow Doubt to Hold You Back

Have you ever wondered why certain people just seam to attract success in their lives? Not just financial but all so many other areas such emotional, spiritual and just in everyday life. There are several factors that contribute to this but one very important trait is usually found in most successful people… They don’t let “Doubt” hold them back or get in the way.

doubt picture

Let’s take for example starting a new business. The successful person knows where he is going and he believes in his product or service, the company and most importantly in HIMSELF (or herself)! Now I’m not saying they don’t have doubts however what I am saying is that they don’t let doubt get in the way of moving forward to success.

For example…

You just got started in your business and you have never done this type of business before however you have a vision, plan and purpose of making things happen with it. You introduce your product or opportunity to a few family member and friends and they immediately reject the idea, doubt that you could do it and may even start criticizing to others about what you are doing.

Immediately the normal reaction is to start doubting yourself and questioning if you made the right decision to get in the business. Don’t feel bad if this is happening to you because, it is natural to do this.

Here are some moment of truth questions for you when it comes to doubt:

1. Do you let “Doubt” creep in and sabotage the dreams and aspirations you have for your business?
2. Do you fall into that trap of self-pity and go back to living a life of quiet desperation and want to start over?
3. Do you take it as a learning experience and realize it probably wasn’t the right time for your family member or friend pursue what you are excited about and working on?

Here is a suggestion I recommend when you are in a situation like this. Sit back and remind yourself that it’s “OK” and don’t take it personal it’s business. It happens in almost all aspects of life and in everything we do in life. It’s time to move on and keep plugging away because there are many, many people just like you that are wanting their own business and to have Freedom and a better life.

The truth is you CAN be wildly successful at anything you do in your business and personal life. You just need to BELIEVE it, take massive action and let the doubters and naysayers pass you by. When you do this something magical happens! You start to have success and that builds your confidence and you start to feel better.

This usually causes you to have even more success and now you start manifesting more and more of what you started this business for and for what you want out of life. When you keep the “Big Picture” in mind, this will really help you focus on what your Purpose and what You CAN accomplish and this will keep those doubts away.

If this post resonated with you, please like, share and comment on it.
Believe and Not Doubt!

“I Don’t Think You Will be Successful in Your Business”

What do you do when someone criticizes you or tells you that you won’t be successful in what you are attempting to do?

Unfortunately sometimes the people who say this to you are family members and friends and it can be a real downer and sometimes it can make you want to quit. In fact many do quit before they ever even get started because of one or two negative comments.

not hearing the negative

Let’s look at the facts here…
– Are there people making money in the business that you are in?
– Did these people start out like you did at one point?
– Are there training and systems in place to help you become successful?

The truth is YOU be successful in YOUR business if You want it and are willing to work HARD at it. The real reason  that some people may talk negative or steal your dreams is because at some point in their life they let negative self-doubt creep into  their lives. Many times they reject success and get the mentality that they could never do it so in their minds others can’t do it either.

There really is a simple solution to this problem.
First… Never ever ever ever try to persuade or talk that person into changing their mind because they won’t.
Second… Just smile and keep a positive attitude. Tell the person that you value their opinion but that you ARE going to be successful and you would appreciate their support but they don’t have to.
Third… just ignore and let the negative vibes and words just pass you by. Move on and spend more time with people who will lift you up and encourage you.

Over time as you ARE successful, you may see that some of these people turn around and change their opinions and if they do great. If they don’t that’s fine as well. At the end of the day only YOU can control your success.

…and YOU CAN BE SUCCESSFUL!

If you are looking for other people who know you can be successful and the right systems, tools and mentors to help you along the way, I invite you to check out a simple home business that allows for all of that.
