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.

How Implementing the “Slight Edge” Can Change Your Life

Have you heard about “The Slight Edge”? The “Slight Edge” is the principle that the small things we do in our life (both good or bad), implemented consistently over time, can change your life. There is a great book by Jeff Olson called “The Slight Edge”,that I highly recommend you read, study and start doing right away in your life.

slight edge

Say you are tired of your job and you are stuck in the “Rat Race” and you want a change. Do you do what most people do which is to find some business opportunity, try it for a week or a month and then quit because they are not making $10,000 a month yet? Believe it or not it sounds silly when I say it like that but that is EXACTLY the trap that many people fall into. If they only understood the power of “The Slight Edge”, they could reach those income goals and have everything they ever wanted in life.

 

How to use the “Slight Edge” with your Work?

To practice the “Slight Edge” in a home business one needs to apply consistent activity (the right activity I might add) over a sustained period of time to have incredible results. I’m not talking about working an extra 10 hours a day, I’m talking 30 to 60 minutes a day (time that most people spend watching TV and wasting time), doing consistent business growing activities and maintaining it for a sustained period of time.

So what do we learn here?
1. Small choices do make a difference
2. It takes time to see the results… months even years sometimes! This is the formula for long term success. This is the formula that allows a person to walk away from the day job and start a new life.

Since I have become an online marketer and utilize this “Slight Edge” in my business, I want to invite you to look to the internet as a business opportunity coupled with what you are passionate about. In my humble opinion, what better place to turn than the Internet? It allows you to maximize your time, reach and influence and it’s a perfect companion for those wanting to take advantage of the  “Slight Edge.

If you are looking for a “Slight Edge” business that you can do online, one that can make a real difference in your life, check out the info below and see how to make it happen.

Getting Value from Your Event Experience

Getting Value from Your Event Experience

This is the time of the year where a lot of events are happening and if you are like me, in that you are planning in advance, how you are going to get the most value from your event experience. These events maybe your company event or a general event in your area of focus. You blocked the dates on your calendar, purchased your ticket, booked your flights and room and now you are ready for the world!

EVENTS1

Here are a few tips with to help you maximize your event experience and get the most value out of it.

Tip #1 – Arrive to the event early 
It’s a good idea to arrive to the event at least a day early. This way you are not stressed about rushing to the event the morning of. What if your flight is delayed and you miss part of the event? Also arriving early gives you a change to meet and network with others who are their for the event.

Tip #2 – Find out and research the speakers before you show up
Take the time to learn more about the line up of speakers so you can be better prepared for what you are going to learn. You may find you are more interested in certain speakers than others or find you have things in common. You may want to research the product they sell as well in case some of them will be offering products or services at the event.

Tip #3 – Do a little research on who is attending
If you have access to see who is attending the event, it’s a good idea to do a little research and make a list of specific people you want to meet. If there is a Facebook group or page for the event, join it and get to know the other attendees. Having a specific list of people you want to network with can really help you reach your goals.

Tip #4 – Have business cards
Yes you need business cards. There seams to be a trend out there right now of “I don’t do business cards” , especially in the Internet Marketing world. In my opinion when people say that they are really saying, “I don’t care about networking or I’m too important for you.” Make sure you have a business card that really stands out so people will remember you. When you get business cards at the event, make sure you write a note on the card so you remember what it is that sets that person apart. This will help you remember all the people you meet. Make sure you enter these contacts into some kind of tracking system where you keep track of everyone you met and follow up immediately after the event.

Tip #5 – Sit up front
Sitting as close to the front is always recommended so you are not distracted and can concentrate. Many times you will notice that top income earners and leaders sit up front. There is a reason for this! You never know when one golden nugget will be shared at your event and by sitting up front you will have the best chance to catch it!

Tip $#6 – Network outside the event
One of the best things about events is the Networking! Most of the time this happens during breaks, at lunch and in the evening after the event. Take advantage of this instead of just going back to your room and vegging out. You never know who you will meet at an event and how it will impact your business. Make sure you take every opportunity you can to do so. Sometimes at events, people will network in the halls during different speakers. Leave it up to your judgement to do so, but be aware it’s very rude to the person who is speaking so keep it to a minimum.

Tip #7 – Have fun!
Have fun at your event. Loosen up a bit and remember to smile. Most people are attracted to others that are happy, confident and genuine. If there are outside activities going on, participate in them and enjoy yourself.
The bottom line about events…

Events drive growth in your business. I always recommend that you attend at least 3 events a year. Try it and see how fast your business will grow! If you are looking to start or grow a business online or offline and want to find events that help you do this, check out the video below to see what I recommend.

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.
