Your Success Depends On Doing Something Worthy

Your Success Depends on Your Approach to Sharing and Doing Something Worthy for Others

“Either WRITE SOMETHING worth reading or DO SOMETHING worth writing” ~Benjamin Franklin

As you focus on growing your business be sure to take the added time to ensure you are providing something of value to those you are targeting for your business opportunity. Without providing something worth doing (or writing), what do you hope to accomplish?

How successful do you really think you and your business will be? Focus on the long term, not the here and now; and while you are at it, focus on what value your customers and prospective customers and/or affiliates will gain from what you’ve shared with them!

As with any approach and path in life you decide to take, let your choices be based on providing value for yourself, for your family, and for others that cross or take the same path as you have. If you fail on that path, persist and take another path, and repeat the ‘process’ until you’ve reached the level of success and worthiness that you are capable of. Never give up…

Inspiration for you and your success
Believe in yourself, never give up regardless of the times where you’ve failed (or think you have). Refocus your efforts on your new path and persist until you’ve either achieved the success you were striving for, or until you determine that there is another path and focus adjustment needed.

Here’s to your personal and business success, and to those friends,affiliates, prospects, and customers who will benefit from the results they’ve anticipated from you.

Starting a Home-based Business – Find Your Niche First

Creating Your Own Niche For A Home-based Business

Action Takers Succeed in BusinessFor many these days it’s not easy to make ends meet, which is one key reason why many people are looking at home-based businesses with the goal of finding the right business to start that will help them ensure they have sufficient income to meet their monthly obligations. A home-based business can allow you the financial freedom to enjoy an added income stream, or a full time living if you make the right preparations and choose the right niche and business model.

One of the key ways to ensure that your home business is successful is to leverage the knowledge that you already have. For example, if you’ve been in sales, take advantage of your knowledge and experience in that profession and have a go at Internet marketing which applies the same principles, just different channels to reach a far wider audience.

If you have experience in consumer goods then choose a home business that is based on the same principles. You can often make just as much, if not more money than you would holding a nine to five job.

However, there are certain differences that need to be taken into account such as the fact that as a home business owner you are responsible for all your costs and other business obligations. This includes you medical care, your IRA, managing your taxes, licenses, etc. It is important that when you sit down to analyize your income potential that you are fairly certain that what appears to be a healthy income stream does in fact take these factors into account.Do your research

Before you start your home-based business you are going to want to make sure that your expenses are kept to a minimum, at least while you find your feet as a self-employed businessman or woman. Your home is the perfect base for your business since you already own it or are making monthly payments for the premises. However, you may have to upgrade some of the tools that you will be using to run the business.

For instance if you are using an Internet connection that is slow you may have to look at a different plan in order to have a faster connection for sending larger files and for communicating on the Internet in general. If you’re going to be running a business based on an Internet model where you host your own website with ecommerce functionality then you’re certainly going to have to improve your current technology infrastructure.

The good news is that there are plenty of service providers who can remove much of the burden from your shoulders. Finding a supplier of ecommerce functionality is actually extremely easy. And, website hosting services are very reasonable from many service companies. This may be a preferable option while the business is still in the start up phase, and possibly beyond.

For those who are slightly more at home with risk, there are other options such as becoming a day trader in stocks and bonds. This is a high risk business and certainly not a recipe for getting rich quickly. For every success story there are hundreds, if not thousands of disappointed investors.

So the golden rule should be followed: Stick with what you know, but use new tools to achieve your objectives. The reach of the Internet makes it easier than ever before to start your own home-based business. Here’s to your success whichever path you take!

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, I hope you’ll share it with others!

Starting Your Network Marketing Business – Work Your Warm Market List

Are you just getting started with your Network Marketing business?

Stcopyrighted imageill trying to determine which way you should go about introducing
your new business?

Your first step in starting your Network Marketing business and
getting it launched successfully is going to start with notifying
your “warm market” about your business. Your warm market consists of people who you know on a first name basis. Your sole objective is to let people know that you have a business; what it consists of and who you are looking for as customers and business partners.

You are simply notifying about your business and what each person
does with that knowledge is up to them. You are offering something
of value that you believe in; however the idea is not to bug or badger
anyone. Just notify!

This list should include immediate family, uncles, aunts, cousins,
etc., close friends, co-workers, church / organizations, former
co-workers, schoolmates, neighbors, everyone you know over 18, and
everyone else. Facebook is a great way to reconnect with those from
your past.

Here are some common misconceptions about notifying your warm

#1 – I need to know everything about the business before I contact
anyone. MLM is a simple business and there is not that much to
know. Your sponsor and upline are there to support you and provide
thier assistance. There are tools and systems offered by the company
that you will use to make this simple. Your excitement and
enthusiasm will go a long way with your prospect.

#2 – I want to be successful first, before I contact anyone I know.
As was stated before, you aren’t doing anything but notifying. That
is your one business obligation – let people know. If you can’t
start with that, where are you going to start and how are you going
to generate the success you want to get you to the point of letting
your friends and family know about your business?

We aren’t in the business of convincing, harassing or bugging
anyone. We are in the business of networking. We network our
products and our opportunity and provide more details to those who
are interested. That’s it.

In addition, you can at the same time take advantage of other
networking opportunities as they present themselves. At a ball game
and you meet a business acquaintance from a past business venture
or job, attending a Chamber of Commerce weekly meeting and you strike
up a conversation with one or more people during the lead swapping
session, these and many other networking opportunities will undoubtedly
present themselves in the beginning and throughout your business
building stages.

However, whatever you do, make and contact that Warm Market List
and launch your business.

Asbestos Cancer – Mesothelioma

Asbestos cancer is more commonly known as mesothelioma. Mesothelioma, the type of cancer most commonly associated with asbestos exposure. This cancer malignancy occurs in the lungs, heart, and abdomen. As noted on the mesothelioma.com website, “A mesothelioma diagnosis is generally classified as one of the following three types: pleural mesothelioma which occurs in the lining of the lungs (known as the pleura); peritoneal mesothelioma which occurs in the lining of the abdominal cavity (known as the peritoneum); and pericardial mesothelioma which occurs in the lining of the heart (known as the pericardium). Here’s a “Did You Know?” image (source unknown) that lists important facts: Did You Know Facts about Abestos & Mesothelioma the asbestos cancer? KEY FACT: NO AMOUNT of exposure to asbestos is safe!

KEY FACT: As of the post, there is no reliable cure for mesothelioma cancer.

The main focus for treating mesothelioma currently is providing treatment that reduces suffering and pain, and to prolong the patient’s life for as long as possible. Hopefully, the treatment will provide the person with the highest quality of life that is possible.

What can you do if you suspect you or a loved one may have been exposed to asbestos and fear they may be suffering from mesothelioma? Talk to your (or their) personal physician regarding your concerns; they may refer you to a comprehensive cancer center where doctors specializing in recognizing and treating mesothelioma.

There is also an information packet available from Mesothelioma.com that you may want to have sent to you or the person you are helping find answers for. There is a simple registration request form on the site, click here for one of the pages where you can request the packet of information.

Another valuable service that Mesothelioma.com provides is their “Treatment Alert Program” that you can sign up for to receive alerts with 24 hours of breaking news, announcements of breakthroughs and improvements in treatments. The alerts include the option to receive alerts on: Newest clinical trials; breaking treatment news, and information from top mesothelioma experts. Filling out your contact information for these alerts also completes the necessary information to have the informational packet sent to you.

Treatment options

Here are treatment options that are covered on the Mesothelioma.com website:

Conventional Treatments – these include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Experimental Treatments – drug treatments (e.g., Alimta®), gene therapy, immunotherapy, photodynamic and multimodality therapy.

Alternative Mesothelioma Treatment Options – click the link to see the full list of alternative treatments that may be of help when looking for alternative choices.

Guiding Questions For High Performance

Brendon Burchard’s “6 Guiding Questions For High Performers

Be sure to check out Brendon Burchard’s High Performance Academy for insight in what it takes to be a high performer (in any line of work or business you are involved with). http://www.highperformanceacademy.com

Brendon recommends asking yourself the following questions, several times a day. And, on the page that he provided to his readers, he recommends keeping the page near your computer or work area to remind yourself of what you need to focus on as you work to become more, achieve more, and to serve (others) more.

Purchased photoHere are the 6 guiding questions for high performance:


  • What is my mission today?
  • What must I accomplish today to progress my life?


  • Am I living my truth?
  • What three words really define who I am as a person?
  • What three words should define how I should interact with others?


  • Am I demonstrating bold enthusiasm when I seek to influence others?


  • Am I rested and fully hydrated? Am I sleeping, eating, exercising, and hydrating enough to have the energy I deserve?


  • What level am I in this moment in terms of my emotional and physical vibrancy and presence?


  • How can I serve greatly?

Brendon also recommends to “Beware of the Inbox! It’s nothing but a convenient organizing system for other people’s agendas. Your goal is to always keep the main thing the main thing in your life, whatever it may be. Focus today. Use your psychology, physiology, productivity, and persuasion skills to amplify your energy and results. It’s your time TODAY; Live Love Matter. ” Brendon Burchard, Founder of High Performance Academy.

When you visit his site he has a number of free videos for you to view.

Words of wisdom from Brendon Burchard…

“Forgiving is so simple. It’s literally just a decision. No justification or cause has to happen, and forgiving does not have anything to do with accepting the other person’s behavior, approving of it, justifying it, rationalizing it, or understanding it. Forgiveness is just a spiritual power in dropping the weight of negativity , of the negative emotion and energy around you. It’s time to just let it go.” Brendon Burchard

What 36 Percent Of Everyone Is Lacking – Let’s FIX The Problem!

What 36 Percent Of Everyone Is Lacking – Let’s FIX The Problem!

Today I saw a news report that shocked me and it’s a HUGE problem that needs to be fixed.

36% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings! (That doesn’t count the money you may have tied up in the home you may own.)

This is TOTAL savings. Savings for retirement…savings for a rainy day! Most of the news report was giving the reasons blaming higher taxes, higher cost of living, stagnant wages and a general declining economy.

Does this scare you?

It should run shivers down your spine.

You know there is one thing I learned a long time ago. You can budget. You can save. You can go to school and get a degree. You might even land a better job making 3 to 6 thousand dollars a year…

…but if you EVER want to get a head in life you really need to go out and start a home business.

A home business can give you FREEDOM. It can get you that extra money you are looking for. It can eventually get you out of the Rat Race if that is what you want.

So what is holding you back from starting a home business?

Is it time?
Is it Money
Is it lack of self belief in yourself?

Or is it you simply just don’t know what to do?

So if you KNOW you want to start a home business but you are not sure what or how to do it, I invite you to check out what I’m doing.

Check Out What I’m Doing To Fix The Problem

There are many others out there who are doing something to “Fix The Problem”…in fact here is Lynn Huber who is a perfect example of what can happen if you really want to make a change.

Now of course we can’t guarantee any income to you…but what we can do is give you a fighting chance with something that actually works!

So if you are looking to make some extra income and would like a step-by-step proven system that works…

Four Hour Work Week Revisited

The Four Hour Work Week Revisited

Have you read Tim Ferris’s book, The Four Hour Work Week?

It provides some great insights into creating a more
productive, and more lucrative business by focusing
more on tasks that matter and less on the mundane stuff
that steals our time.

Think about how you want to run your business AND your
life. Do you tend to procrastinate on certain things?
Wouldn’t you rather take action in resolving them; and
moving them off your plate?

Einstein said, “Reality is just an illusion albeit a very persistent one.”

Some key points:

  • To prevent work for work’s sake and do the minimum
    necessary for maximum effect.
  • To have more quality and less clutter.
  • Focus on being productive instead of busy.
  • Emphasize strengths and don’t fix weaknesses. In other
    words, follow your passion.
  • Look at what you are currently doing and ask yourself –
    what would happen if I did the opposite of the people
    around me?
  • Instead of goals, ask “What would excite me?”

How would any of this make a difference in your life
and business?

 If you want to see one of the ways I’m helping people reach their financial goals check out the video below…

Watch This Video

…and follow the simple steps. It’s working for me and thousands of others out there online.

watch this video and see how folks like yourself have found  a solution to help in their quest for financial and time freedom!
