Three Easy Ways to Expand Your Home Business Overnight

Did you know that 98% of the time a person’s failure is because of his or her lack of effort and lack of knowledge rather than the home business industry like so many rookie business owners like to claim?

Over the weekend, I was doing some studying on ways that people can become greater in life. If you know anything about me, you know that I’m the one person in the home business industry that defends the people that don’t make a nickel and I stand up and fight to find ways to remove the shackles from these people so they can go out there in the land of the free and become successful home business owners. While I was doing some research, I found three easy-to-use ways that anybody can use to create a successful home business. I like to call them my three little home business success tips.

The first one that I will cover I like to call the DNA excuse. The DNA excuse is something we all tell ourselves that actually stops us from achieving success and reaching levels we never thought possible. If you’ve ever had a talk with somebody in the home business industry and really listened to the words that came out of their mouths on why they are not succeeding, you would most likely hear sentences and words that made excuses about their DNA. For example, I was talking to a great lady the other day and she was asking me for advice on succeeding in home business. I asked her what she thought her biggest problem was and she told me it was because nobody in her family has ever been good at sales. After much talk with this lady I told her that she’s using her past to dictate her future. She thinks that because everybody in her family prior to her was no good at sales, that’s why she’s failing. I call it the DNA excuse. There are many more examples, but I’ll keep it simple for now. My advice is to not let your past DNA get in the way of your success.

As I was sitting around really pondering this over the weekend, I realized another important factor that HOLDS PEOPLE BACK FROM SUCCESS IS what others have told them they can do or cannot do. Several times I’ve had conversations with people in the home business industry and I’ve heard them say so and so said this doesn’t work, or I’ve heard them say they heard this from this person. I like to call this not only an EXCUSE to validate their failure, but I like to call it a mind virus. A virus is something that is planted in a subject or thing then it infiltrates the subject or thing and then it spreads. Many people in general not only in the home based business industry operate with this excuse. In fact, I feel this is the main killer for our dreams. Somebody tells us one thing and it then gets installed in our minds and we then in return spread it to others. It’s a big virus of nonsense. It’s all limiting beliefs. I like to say that 1 + 1 is only one if you believe it is. In order to create success you must change your mind and understand that what you hear from others is not always the best advice and for your best interests. Next time somebody tells you something, question their source: you’ll throw them for a loop.

The last of the three is what I call The Brain Excuse. Many times we talk with people whether it be in the home business industry or your best friend and we hear them basically tell themselves how dumb they are or how uneducated they are. You’ll hear people say, “I can’t do this because I’m not that good with numbers.” Right off the bat this person has just given themselves a reason to fail. Little do they know that the brain is like plastic and it can remold and mold itself all the time. If we could just stop stopping ourselves by telling ourselves how uneducated and dumb we are then we would all start to understand how much easier things start to become. It’s almost like our world starts to tilt our way. The next time you hear yourself getting ready to cut yourself down think twice because it will do you more harm than good I promise.

In conclusion, I feel the reason for so many of our failures is the fact that we need to make so many excuses of why we do or don’t do something. My advice is stop letting others tell you what you can do and what you can’t do and step into a place where you’re following your desires and not somebody else’s desires. The home business industry is only tough if you think it’s tough. Don’t let excuses of your past and what others tell you can do or can’t do hold you back.

Small Business Marketing – Do You Have What it Takes to Explode Your Sales 3 Tips

Small Business owners who do not take advantage of business and marketing strategies that will explode their sales, simply do not know about Joint venture marketing.

In Fact Price Waterhouse Cooper said that 32 percent of the fastest growing businesses use this business strategy to help them with their business goals. Common Wealth Alliance say 25 percent of all revenue or 40 trillion dollars per year is from joint ventures. Shouldn’t your business be benefiting from it too?

If you are a small, medium or large business and are still only using a “Competition marketing model” your business will probably die within 5 years because of the lack of connections and clients. Now, former competitive businesses are teaming up and becoming colleagues, this is replacing the old business model of the “competitive marketing strategy.”

With joint ventures or (JV’s) you are teaming up with a business, group or person in an alliance for the purpose of creating or expanding a market or presence in the market place. You can use a JV to influence or create credibility through an association with others. This helps your business lower risk, lower marketing costs, creates long term alliances, provides better client service, creates massive wealth faster and helps stabilize your business through all economic weather.

Joint ventures are the business trend right now and will be for a long time in the future. Sadly, most entrepreneurs only know one joint venture marketing strategy to explode their success.

Build your global business directory

Connections and alliances are key in the new business economy. If you are not utilizing them you are taking the no road or slow road to business success. Joint Ventures are helping companies of all sizes in emerging markets all around the world connect and acquire critical new technology or perhaps new intellectual property or resources that can be hard to obtain any other way. Even if a large company has plenty of cash, joint ventures are the easiest way for them to acquire these new products, expertises and new territories.

Your Network = your net worth.

Everyone who is business savvy right now understand that their network = their net worth. However, the definition has changed. It’s not just your client network that is important to maintaining long term growth and stability in your business. When you understand the Joint Venture formula you will understand the power and profit potential of having a business network too. It is a way for you to grow a stable, economically sound business for the long term. You must develop both networks.

Optimizing the referral market

Joint Ventures help companies share the risk and make your business more bullet proof too.

It is inexpensive to use and yet creates massive wealth. We have not yet even begun to scratch the surface of what can be done with joint ventures. In the future, joint ventures will prove to the business standard that is the easiest way to develop your business aspirations.

Home Business – Overnight Success on the Internet

Home business owners have longed for overnight success for as long as business has existed. Everyone, no matter how educated, rich or knowledgeable you are, wants to get something for nothing. You might think it is greed or laziness that allows the human imagination to run wild with concepts that could make us rich. The fact is, though, even highly motivated people can get caught up in the promise of riches without effort. This dream is highly promoted for internet home business.

Living life in the fast lane has become a way of life in our society. Instant gratification permeates every area of our daily activities. Cell phones, microwave ovens, fast foods, jets and the internet are just a few examples of areas where we have come to expect quick access to what we want. The Internet is the most amazing medium for technology. When you think about it, only a few short years ago the world was a much bigger place. Today, global communication is possible as soon as you log on.

Promise of overnight success fills our e-mail and is prevalent on every Google search. Pre-launch, turnkey and instant wealth opportunities are springing up every day. The attraction of getting something for nothing is almost irresistible. Even when common sense tells us the claims are too good to be true, what if they are. If the cost to check it out is low enough many people will check it out just in case! The only ones making any money are the people who made the offer in the first place. The more people who pay the price to check it out, the more money they make!

Home business owners online have a skewed view of what it takes to be successful online. We see the promises so often we start to believe that overnight success is possible. Stories of riches reach us and we perceive those successes happened literally overnight. That just is not reality. We forget or ignore the reality that success in anything takes time. It’s true that we often hear about the success that was unheard of yesterday. What we don’t understand is the hard work and discipline that preceded the seemingly overnight success.

Malcolm Gladwell examines the secrets of successful people in his new book, Outliers. The best kept secret or perhaps the most ignored fact is that successful people simply put in more hours than anyone else. They spend an extraordinary amount of time pursuing their particular passion. Most will spend 10,000 hours or more developing their skills, talent, knowledge and experience in order to achieve the success that we perceive to have happened overnight.

Marketing online is not immune to the secrets of success. Hard work and discipline is required to get the results that you want and need to be successful. If the best and brightest business tycoons spent 10,000 hours or more working towards their goal it does not make sense that online marketers believe they can achieve success overnight without having to do a thing. And yet they do!

Jumping from one business to another with the promise of instant success is the surest way to fail online. The Internet offers the average person the best hope for home business success if you treat it with respect. Instead of being lured into the next best business opportunity it would make more sense to find an opportunity that speaks to you and then stick with it.

Changing your mindset from get rich quick to get rich is not that difficult. Treat your online business like a real business from the minute you start to consider the internet as your vehicle to success. Instead of looking at what’s hot and new, you might be better served to look at the tried and true.

Affiliating with a company that has been doing business successfully for more than two years adds credibility to your business opportunity. It has been well documented that most business will fail within the first two years after start up. Business on the Internet follows the same pattern.

Too much credence is given to the new pre-launch business opportunity. Any start up business is risky at best. Only those business opportunities that have a very strong product and well developed business plan will even get past the starting gate. Getting involved with a business that is writing the business plan as it launches is just plainly ludicrous.

Forget the empty promises. When you are looking at business opportunity, the discerning eye of the business man or woman is needed. I have been told so many times that the product is not important if you want to make money. The underlying assumption is that the compensation plan is the most important piece of any business opportunity. My experience has been that the product is equally as important as the way you will get paid. Any product or service has to give value to the ultimate consumer or no one will pay to have it.

Knowing who your customers are will be is as important as knowing who your competition is. Unless you have a very large circle of influence you will not be able to support a significant income by having family and friends as your customers. Sooner or later you have to go elsewhere to find customers if you want your business to grow.

The Internet is the perfect vehicle to find customers. Home business owners have the ability to market their company across the globe. Keep in mind that the most successful people have put in 10,000 or more hours before they became an overnight success. Choose your business well, and then work hard and consistently until you reach your goal for success.
