I can’t tell you how many times I hear from working mom’s that people don’t take their home based business seriously. Unfortunately, when I ask them how they react, they don’t have real definitive answers for me. Remember, unless you take your own business seriously, no one else will. You must establish working hours, rules that family members must follow, and rules you must follow. I know, you started your business so you could be your own boss, work when you want, spend more time with your family, have more flex time. Yes, you can have these things, but you also have to make decisions regarding your business. If your business is secondary to all of the other things, then just like everyone else you are not taking your own business seriously, so why should anyone else. Your business has to be the first priority, not your house, your yard, your cooking and cleaning, your kids and/or family. I am not saying your family is not important, they are; but you must make them realize that what you do as a business person is important, and that you need your time and space to do this. Remind them that when you worked outside the home they couldn’t ask you a question whenever they wanted or to talk with you whenever they wanted to. I know, this is one of the reasons you wanted to work from home so that you could better deal with these issues. Well you can, but you have to schedule them in. Put the time in your daily schedule to deal with the unexpected and you will be better able to deal with it all. I work my business, but still get the other things done. However, I have a schedule and I stick to it. My work day starts after the cleaning is done. I’ve set time aside Friday morning to shop, Saturday to do a full cleaning. I still have plenty of time to myself and to have fun. So schedule the fun things in. Time with the kids, and the family. And remember, unless you take your business seriously… neither will anyone else.Copyright DeFiore Enterprises 2001

That’s right… there really are million dollar home based business opportunities out there. Where? Well to be honest they’re everywhere! Just like beauty being in the eye of the beholder so is opportunity. Opportunity really does greet us at every corner we turn! Opportunities are even laid out for us step by step and yet most of us either don’t see them or don’t believe what do see.You see the real secret is…all home based business opportunities are million dollar opportunities. It’s all in what you make of them. So let me give you a not so common example of what I mean by this….I’m current in the midst of reading “Bringing Down the House” by Ben Mezrich. If you are not familiar with the story then let me give you a quick summary. The story revolves around six college student that devised a way to beat the odds playing black jack in Las Vegas. They became so good at this task that over the years they won millions and were never detected.Wow I thought…Six kids created an extremely lucrative business out of playing black jack in Las Vegas.Now normally…Casinos make billions of dollars from having favorable odds in there table games each and every year, yet these six students discovered how to turn those odds in their favor and exploited that opportunity for millions.They took a situation where the average person would have concluded rationally that there was no opportunity to win and they won. These six college students literally devised a way to change the odds and then created a “system” to ensure that they would succeed. In Las Vegas, no one is supposed to win, but they did!So let me ask you a question,If a bunch of college kids can make millions against the odds why can’t you and I make millions when all the odds are in our favor?Most home based business opportunities offer turnkey solutions that give the average person the most favorable chance possible of creating a profit in there home business. Yet, even with the odds in their favor most people still fail in there home based business attempts.Why?Greed… Most people think that all they have to do is pay a few dollars and then money is going to start knocking at there door. Well, you and I know that’s not how it works…What I failed to mention above about “Bringing Down the House” was that the students trained rigorously on the inner most details of there system before taking it live to Las Vegas. They were prepared for anything and everything and they literally new their system by heart. They set themselves up for success before the ever took a chance! (and that’s the key too success when it come down to it)Most home business entrepreneurs do the opposite. They don’t prepare at all. They put there money on the line, they don’t learn the “system”, and then they fail. Then they claim they failed because the “system” didn’t work. Well, it’s my opinion that most home based business entrepreneurs fail not because the “system” didn’t work, but rather because they didn’t work the system correctly.Don’t let this happen to you in your home business efforts. Please feel assured that if you’ve had proper preparation and you work your system long enough then the odds will end up on your side.So the secret to running million dollar home based business opportunities is very simple and can be summed up in 5 simple steps:o Spot an opportunityo Create or take advantage of a system to exploit that opportunityo Prepare thoroughly to exploit that opportunityo Then work your system with the odds are in your favor until you make a profito Continue…
I own and operate several successful businesses on the Internet, and I take extreme pride in my follow-up skills, patience and the ability to virtually teach anyone how to start a business on the Internet with virtually no skills or financial backing.There is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t receive an email requesting my help to teach someone how to get started. While I always return these emails and offer my help, 99.9% of the time, I know by the first email if this person is worth my time or not.Starting a business on the Internet is not hard, but it does take patience and a lot of time invested before you see any return. It will also take a financial investment of at least 10-30 dollars to build a website.Most people understand that starting a traditional business offline will require a huge investment of time and money. They also understand that this will require some planning before they see a profit…so why don’t people who start Internet businesses understand that?Here is an example of the type of emails that I get:“I’m looking for an Internet business to start and I don’t want to pay anything to get started. I have tried virtually every program on the Internet and been scammed by all of them. My family and I can hardly make the bills each month. I need money fast! Please help me!”I just cringe when I see these types of emails. First of all this guy is looking for an “Internet Job” versus an “Internet Business”. There isn’t any Internet jobs that I know of that will pay you by the hour for doing a certain task for them.Next, he has tried virtually every program on the Internet. These people jump from program to program looking for “instant” cash and never concentrate on one opportunity long enough to see any success. These are the people who scream that they have been scammed and put a bad light on every legitimate opportunity on the Internet.This prospect can hardly pay his bills, and will probably have trouble paying them for the rest of his life, because he doesn’t manage his money. How do I know that? He obviously has Internet access to be able to email me, and if I was really struggling to pay the bills each month, I would think that the Internet would be a luxury that I could do without. If you can afford the Internet you can afford to start an Internet business.And lastly, this guy is running on pure desperation. Desperate thoughts lead to desperate measures and he will never think clearly enough to successfully start and manage his own business. He will be thinking of only the moment at hand instead of working toward a future goal.I would of course send this prospect an email in return, because you never know when someone might prove you wrong. But set them straight right from the start with some realistic expectations, or these types of emails will overrun your own business and take precious time away from your own goals.Best wishes for your future success and prosperity!Rebecca Gilbert[http://www.101homebusiness.org]
Turn your dreams into reality: How to market your intellectual property to the global marketWhether you have tried to market your invention, art, craft, book or other talent in the past and failed or whether you have never tried beyond nurturing your ideas in your mind, please remember this–if you deeply believe in your talent, and if you have a vision of greatness for your ideas, one day you will be able to turn your dreams into reality.Remember Carl Carlson’s 17-year efforts to make his copy machine (Xerox) a reality and Thomas Edison’s 10,000 experiments to invent the light bulb. The powerful lesson from many great inventors and entrepreneurs in human history is–Never Give Up! Even if everybody around you keeps telling you to give up, you should remember that negative people and negative reinforcements are only barriers to transforming your dreams into reality.Many famous inventors, entrepreneurs and authors refused to give up regardless of how many people laughed at them or how many times they failed. They knew that one can never be sure of how long it will take to succeed. And so, they never gave up. All the negative people and negative reinforcements could not destroy their spirit of endurance, perseverance and resilience. They remembered the famous quote “Most people succeeded just one step beyond their greatest failure.”They kept on trying and did not allow the rejections and negative reinforcements to kill their hopes and dreams. They took every obstacle as a challenge to overcome. They deeply believed that one day, the right opportunities will present themselves and will open the doors to their hopes and dreams. In the end, their confidence, perseverance and hard work helped them turn their dreams into reality.The intellectual property transfer market is now estimated to be worth over $100 billion. Today, the Internet provides a wide range of tools and resources to the innovators. A number of online forums, including Minnesota-based NewIdeaTrade.com (http://www.newideatrade.com ), California-based Pl-x.com (http://www.pl-x.com ), and Connecticut-based PatentTriage.com (http://www.patenttriage.com ) links buyers and sellers of intellectual property. The traditional transfer of intellectual property is complicated, costly, and can take up to one year. However, these online forums simplify and speed up the process for transfer of intellectual property.Additional information on how to market intellectual property is available at http://www.newideatrade.com
So often we, as online business mobile porn owners, fall victim to the hype surrounding the latest buzzword or idea. It’s a truly pitiful state of Internet affairs when we can’t distinguish sound truth from blurred theory. So what is the truth surrounding one of the most talked about Internet catch phrases, “multiple streams of income”?In all actuality, the idea of multiple streams of income is not a new concept. Those who have been successful in business (in life for that matter) have long understood that you simply aren’t acting wisely if you place all your trust in one wealth-generating company, idea, or tool. Those in offline business refer to “multiple streams of income” as “diversification.”Take a look at the stock market for a moment. This is a prime example of diversification or “multiple streams of income” (MSI). For as long as it has been in existence, the stock market has thrived on diversification. Stockbrokers encourage (almost insist) that you keep your funds split between multiple companies. Why? Because if one company goes under, you’ll have additional sources of revenue through the dividends of other companies.How about business purchasing? Professionals in business procurement will advise you to line up and use several vendors for the same products/services. Why? Again, to protect yourself should one or more of your vendors close their doors at the same time. If this happens, and you have other vendors lined up and ready to go, you won’t lose any time in getting the supplies you need to continue conducting your business.These same proven tactics apply to MSI online. Just as you wouldn’t want to invest all of your savings with one retirement fund company, you wouldn’t want to derive all your income from one source. Just the opposite. You’ll want to ensure you have revenue coming in from as many different sources as possible.MSI is a solid business principle that should be at the very foundation of your company. Whether you sell others’ products through affiliate programs or have a service-based business that you operate yourself, find multiple streams of income to back up your primary stream.Don’t know where to look? Try these!1. Add affiliate products to your site (or start a new site and offer them there).2. Produce your own ebook, software product, or automated service that can be created once and sold over and over with little effort on your part.3. Find others to partner with. Bring a combination of your products/services to market and give yourself twice as much income for half as much work.The Same or Different?Should you aim for adding MSI that are similar to your current offerings or different? There are pros and cons to each. You’ll need to examine both sides of the story and make that decision for yourself.While products/services that are similar can be added to your current marketing plan more quickly, those that are different allow your company to expand and reach more target groups. Similar products/services integrate easily into your current business strategy, but different products/services help you achieve more security. The “correct” decision is one you can make according to your situation.Regardless of whether you decide to go with products or services that are similar or diverse, affiliate or your own, give some serious thought to shoring up your finances through multiple streams of income. When you do, you can be rest assured knowing your future is secure.Copyright 2004 Diane Hughes

It is therefore, we often find wise quote of the day saying about how important our goal is. Because it is our end of business adventure.I believe that we should ask ourselves before we start jumping in the business. Ask ourselves how strong we are to face the hardship that may come ahead. Find and learn our own weaknesses and strengths before we get tempted in a good business offer. Coz at the end of the day, we have to deal ourselves……not the business.I’ve learned that we MUST have PPC: patience, persistence and consistence.When we are certain that we can boost these three elements in us, then there would be no difficult obstacles we find. Persistence and consistence will help us to cope with any kind of situation for they will keep us on track of reaching out the goal.They will enhance our spirit when we get low, they will keep us objective when things go wrong, and they will be the best company to go on the hardship.So, before we decide to take on a business journey, make sure we can set this PPC high enough within us. Make sure this PPC will always be available so that we can keep being enthusiastic in surviving the competition.Wish you all the best in maintaining your PPC!
Rest and Relaxation – MeditationHave you figured out how to plan your workday to get the most benefit from it for your business and family? Have you factored in playtime and service to your community?Are you having a little trouble, though, with the concept of rest and renewal for yourself? Do you wish that there was something you could do for yourself which would take about twenty minutes, can be done anywhere you are, requires virtually no cost or physical effort and actually ENERGIZES you instead of drawing energy? Well, not only IS there such a thing – it is something that has been tried and found true and effective by untold millions of people from before recorded history. Yes, I’m talking about meditation – and it is NOT just for Buddhist monks anymore!Did I say twenty minutes? That is the amount of time that appears to be of the most benefit for the average person who is not in a monastery. The famous spiritual leader Deepak Chopra himself recommends this amount of time as being a good one for most people. But, of course, you can spend as much or as little time as you want at this soul renewing, physically relaxing and energizing activity. Take a little time to find out what works best for you.Let me begin by saying that I am an advocate of the plain old kitchen timer for meditating. If you tell people what you are doing, you will probably run into someone who thinks this is too crass or jarring. Some people like to say that they meditate without paying attention to time – indicating that a Higher Power, or Inner Voice, tells them when to start and stop. My experience is that these are people who do more talking about meditating than actual meditating. In monasteries, even those in which monks meditate for hours at a time, it is done with beginning and ending times. Granted, a pleasant bell or chime is a nicer sound than a mechanical timer, but most of us don’t have anyone willing to act as our chimer. Some people have found that putting the timer in the next room where they can hear it but it is not so loud makes it more pleasant. I have even heard of someone going so far as to record the sound of a bell followed by twenty minutes of recorded silence and then the sound of another bell. Not a bad idea!The point is that to get the benefits of meditation it needs – like anything else – to be done regularly and not just when the “spirit” moves. Think of it as training the mind and spirit, just like building up muscle. Twenty minutes a day lifting weights will give you stronger biceps – picking up the weights only when you feel like it just won’t!There are many forms of meditation. The common idea in almost all of them is to put one thing into the mind and focus on THAT as a way of blocking out other things. It is good to find a quiet place for meditation, but in today’s world it is often impossible to find complete silence. You will find that after practicing for a while you can come to an inner core of concentration in which the sounds around you become peripheral. You can hear them, as it were, at a distance – while your mind dwells on the focus of your meditation.The common Zen practice of counting breaths is a good way to start for many people. Zen practitioners will count “One” on the in breath, “Two” on the out breath, up to the count of ten and then start over. If you prefer you can come up with a “mantra” for yourself – a phrase to repeat over and over as you meditate. Anything that feels safe and comfortable for you – the actual meaning doesn’t matter as much as the focus. If you are a visual person you may want to picture a peaceful scene. A more “audio” person may want to try the following: Identify for yourself an area of silence that is inside your head – some people locate it right around their ears. When you can “hear” that silence, actively listen to it for as long as you can and keep coming back to it when your thoughts run away with you. After practicing this for a while you will find that other sounds around you seem to be “outside” of this interior silence.A word about the business of “thoughts running away.” Don’t become discouraged when extraneous thoughts intrude on your concentration. That is natural. Just keep returning to your focus. After a while it will become more and more natural to return sooner and the thoughts will not last as long. Some practitioners say that having the thoughts is not a problem – just try not to “run after them” or elaborate on them. Just keep gently returning to the meditation, as if you were training a puppy by putting him back on the paper over and over again. Above all, be gentle with yourself. It is counter-productive to make meditating another hurdle for yourself. Chances are you have set up enough of those as it is.Some people feel the benefits of regular meditation immediately in the form of a calmness and renewed energy. Other benefits may take longer and may not be so obviously related to your new activity. People who have meditated for years reflect that they are more creative, more centered and less anxious and irritable than they were before – even though on the outside their lives have become more hectic. On reflection they realize that the one thing they have done differently is that they gave themselves the gift of regular meditation and it has made all the difference.The home business entrepreneur needs to keep that well of creative energy flowing. Meditation may be the way for you, as it has been for so many others.
My brother-in-law is in the process of starting a home business. In fact, he’s been in the process of starting it for over 2 years now.It seems that Bill (that’s not really his name, but I don’t want to embarrass him), is afraid to take the big step.He wasn’t afraid to take the first step. He’s taken lots of steps. He’s going to be selling a product, so he’s done some really important (and expensive) groundwork like designing his product, testing it, getting a patent, getting a business license, setting up his accounting procedures and even designing his website.Bill spent a lot of time on his website (he’s a bit of a perfectionist). I’ve offered to get him up and running on the web, submit it to the search engines, and basically handle the website administration for him.About 2 months ago, his site was all set and I’ve been waiting for his go ahead to “go live” ever since. Whenever I ask him if he’s ready, he has a vague reason for not going ahead: “I need to make more of model x” or “I’ve decided to redesign a few things on the website”.It has become clear to me that Bill is afraid of failure (or even his own success).This is an all to common situation among would-be business owners. Let’s face it– it’s a pretty scary thing to be completely responsible for your own livelihood. In fact, this fear is often the one thing that keeps a person from realizing their dream of having a home business.There are some good reasons to be nervous, too. The Small Business Administration estimates that 33% of small businesses fail within the first year, 50% fail within the second year and 60% to 70% will fail within their first five years of operation.People have all kinds of reasons that keep them from starting a business:
They’re afraid they’ll lose money
They’re afraid of what their family and friends will cartoon porn think of them if they fail.
They’re fearful of the enormous responsibility milf porn that comes with owning a business.
They think it’s too hard, or that they don’t have enough time.
But should we really let fear come between us and our dreams? In this past year, we’ve learned that we have tremendous strength w black porn ithin each of us– whether we knew it or not. And lots of people *are* successful. Why shouldn’t Bill be one of the ones who succeeds? I believe that he has it in him to be successful, but he just has to get past the fear factor and take that next step.And if you’re planning to start a home business then do your homework, find something that you feel passionate about, plan your business, but don’t let fear keep you from achieving your goals.
You want to start an online business,but you realize that you don’t have a product,a web site, or prior experience. You now ask yourself, where do I start? Start with affiliate programs.What is an affiliate program?An affiliate program is a program set up by a company that sells products or services. When you introduce new customers to the company you receive a cut of the profits,in other words a commission of the sales made.Some companies pay you for sending them leads.Others pay only when the visitor that you send them makes a purchase.How to join an affliate programMost of the time all you have to do is provide your contact information and agree to the company’s terms and conditions. Some companies will charge you a small fee to get started.If the company charges a fee to get started, make sure that they provide a toll free number so that you can speak to a live person for support and questions.5 Things to look for1. Find out how much the company pays their affiliates. It can be a flat rate or a percentage. If they are paying you a percentage then you may want to look at the price of their products to figure out how much you will make per sale.2. It is important to know how many levels or tiers the affiliate programs provide. Some programs are two tiers, three tiers,and some will go up to ten tiers. This simply means that if you refer another affiliate to the program you will earn a commission on the sales that they make.You want to go with a company that has at least a two tier program because this will allow you to earn residual income.3. Does the program provide you with your own web site;or a link for you to send visitors to? Many companies will provide you with a replica of their web site with your own sub-domain. When someone makes a purchase through your web site,the company knows who to send the commission to.If the company does not provide you with a web site they will provide you with your own link for you to send visitors to. These are the most common ways for the company to keep track of who sends them the visitor.4. Does the company pay you a commission on the future purchases of your referrals? Many companies will pay you for all the future purchases that your referrals make. If your referral purchased a subscription, you want to go with a company that pays you a commission for the monthly payments that your referrals make.5. The fifth thing to look for in an affiliate program is if they provide you with content. You want to join a company that provides you with banners,emails and text for you to add on to your web site.If you don’t have your own web site, you may want to join a company that provides you with tips and advice on how to promote their products or services.The advantagesStarting an online business with affiliate programs has many great advantages. You will never have to worry about buying or shipping products or dealing with any of the customer service since you are not selling your own product.Affiliate programs give most individuals plenty of time to concentrate on promoting the products that they are selling. If you do your research and marketing;and find an affiliate program that pays well,you will be very successful.
Anyone working online and short of being blind has at one time or another come face-to-face with pop-up and pop-under advertisements.There is no middle of the road here; you either love them or hate the little buggers!Automatic pop-up and pop-unders are relatively new alternatives to more traditional advertising methods, but as with any method, one must be careful not to overdo.Proper implementation of pop-up and pop-unders could be one of the efficient ways to reach your visitors with a targeted advertising message.The decision whether or not to deploy them must be made very carefully and always keeping your visitors in mind when your site uses these ads.By displaying just 1 window and only when necessary (usually when the visitor is leaving), you can get maximum results while still respecting your visitors.Each marketer should evaluate their business to determine whether their site really needs this form of advertising. If you decide to forge on, control the size of the pop-up window. Do not block the visitors’ sight!Do not utilize pop-ups or unders on your homepage. It may keep potential customers from revisiting your site, and always test your ads before making them public. Be certain they function well and make darn sure they are easy to close from a visitors’ standpoint.If your pop-up and pop-under ads do not effectively bring about positive results, discontinue use immediately!
