As the Holidays begin to peek around the corner people are beginning to search for ways to make money at home for the up-and-coming gift giving season. Not only that, the recession has hit people hard and I honestly believe that home based businesses are going to explode in the coming years as more and more people look for ways to make money at home.
Whether you choose to offer a decorating service or a grocery shopping service, advise people on how to declutter a home or, indeed remove the clutter in your truck - the options are endless.
9 years ago I never would have thought that I would be running a blog dedicated to business training. It is very hard for me to believe that I started my online income journey that long ago. Throughout the course of the past 9 years I have been completely broke (twice). I have sold my personal belongings online so that I could pay my bills and I have used just about every method possible to make extra income online. Now, I own my life and through coaching and training I teach others to do the same. And my business is growing daily!
What shouldn’t be a surprise is that the number of small businesses are currently seeing hyper-growth! There are millions of people out of work that are trying to figure out what their “plan B” is and that often means starting their own business.
Unfortunately, if 1,000,000 people start a business this year only 50,000 will come out victorious. There are several factors for these numbers but I think the biggest is the lack of knowledge and training, and an awareness of the best ways of improving the profitability of your small business.
Small Business Success – NO MORE EXCUSES!
As a digital marketing coach I have heard every possible excuse as to why people can’t build their business or can't improve the profitability of a small business. With the power of internet marketing building a profitable business has never been easier! Attraction marketing has completely revolutionized this industry and people still find excuses on why they can’t be successful in their industry.
Become an Entrepreneur – Take Back Your Life!
I always get a good laugh when I start to talk to someone who thinks they know about starting up their own business and what the key elements of a basic business plan are. Running your own business is all just hard work and no free time - isn't it? And no business ever works out how it's described on the business plan. When someone says that I don’t get upset or mad. In fact, I get excited because it gives me a chance to educate someone on an approach that has completely changed my life!
If you are currently struggling in your small business I’m going to guess it’s because you have yet to find the right training. Have you listened to every CD and read every training manual that you can get your hands on? While training methods can be useful in regards to professional development they are not going to magically grow your business for you. It is by applying what you have learnt in the training in the workplace. Take project management for instance, many organisations large and small struggle to consistently achieve project success yet the right project management training, when put into practise, has been proven to increase the proportion of successful projects. So little wonder that businesses are investing in professional project management courses for their employees, such as the APM Project Fundamentals course. And the same is true of finding the right training in other fields.
My Lead System Pro I would like to thank my amazing wife, my two children and my dog Barley….haha!! In all honestly though, I am super pumped that I made the MLSP leader boards for member sign-ups. By no means did I make this blog post to “toot my own horn.” The purpose of this post is to provide motivation to those of you that are struggling to build your businesses.
Are you currently trying to get your posts and blog to rank high in the search engines? Are you struggling to get results? Currently, I am using an incredible online social syndication platform known as Tribepro to get 2500-3000 powerful social syndication backlinks to my articles, videos and blog posts. However, there is a BIG piece of the puzzle missing from Tribepro that I have found!
It is amazing to see how the network marketing industry has changed over the past ten years. I joined my first network marketing company back in 2001 and from the very beginning I was told to market my business to my friends and family members.
Once my warm lead list dried up I was told to wonder around shopping malls looking for prospects. As I’m sure you can imagine, this marketing strategy did not get me very far. Honestly, it absolutely sucked!
It was not until early 2011 that I realized that I needed to start marketing my business online. The old school ways of marketing were a thing of the past. I looked high and low for an online marketing strategy and then I stumbled across My Lead System Pro. My life and business have changed ever since!
