Are You Happy With Your Business and Income Life?

Your Business Life
Are You Happy Now?

How do you answer that question? There must be many answers that you have.  This is not a question to get into your personal life about your spouse or partner…or with your kids…or with your family members…or with your neighbors or friends…that is absolutely your personal business and I will not go there. What I am asking you is a fundamental basic question about how your BUSINESS and INCOME LIFE is proceeding.

Are You Happy With Your Business and Income life?

I am writing to connect in this blog with those who can usually earn $30,000 to $100,000+ when they have the opportunity. And I qualify this by saying “usually earn” because these are not usual times. Our economy and country are upside down in my humble opinion…and we have nothing that even resembles “usual opportunity”. I am sure that Jack and George and Sue and Kim and Robert will not all say yes to the question “I am happy” with my business life. More than likely all of these are thinking of some ways to do something about it.

And with that backdrop…let me get to my points about “Are You Happy In Your Business Life?”

Why Not?
Are You Happy?

My first question to you is…”are you (and your spouse or partner) earning enough income to set aside all of the pieces of money” that 1) buys the groceries, 2) pays the mortgage or rent, 3) pays the utility bills, 4) pays for all the protection risks that you have, 5) pays for the automobile(s), 6 ) buys the gas at whatever prices the Far East decides you should pay…(seems to me that we should have a major say in what we pay), 6) pays for your kids education now or sets aside money for future education  (if you should be fortunate enough to have any), 7) allows for your family vacations, 8) provides for personal and family nights out to enjoy life, and most importantly 9) you have a cash reserve of 3-6 months of necessary expenses…most people have a hard time with this one…it is so important to financial independence.

What Will It Take?
Are You Happy Now?independence.

If you cannot answer yes to all of the above questions. and your answers concern you, then you really need to consider effective options as to how you can “be happy with your answers”.

We have so many millions of people that are in need of the “American Dream” solutions that we once knew…then I ask you personally and individually to get in contact with me to talk about your future. I have tremendous respect for our veterans and those who have given so much of themselves for our country. It would really be wonderful to hear from any of you.

If Your Target Market Doesn’t Bite, Fish Somewhere Else

Elizabeth Grace Saunders, Young Entrepreneur Council | Aug. 22, 2011

The Challenge: As a woman business owner myself and a confidante to many others, I knew that many women business owners felt stressed out and overwhelmed. Given this knowledge, I initially targeted the marketing of Schedule Makeover(TM) time coaching and training toward female entrepreneurs. Many women wanted to know about the services — and even cried about how stressed out they felt — but they rarely were willing to invest in themselves.

How to Reach Your Target Audience Through Tribal Marketing

Young Entrepreneur Council | Mar. 8, 2012

If you enter a room full of crying but healthy babies, chances are they all share at least one of the same needs: food, sleep, a diaper, or some undivided attention from a loving grown-up. As they grow into early childhood, they will hit the same developmental benchmarks at roughly the same time, and they’ll still want and need lot of the same basics (snacks, naps, potty, hugs), though they are beginning to assert their distinct personalities

Prosperity Awaits!

Prosperity Awaits
Economic Gardening
utahcitizennetwork.org

In our economic environment  the very thought of achieving prosperity and financial independence is almost considered “the impossible dream”! I am here to tell you why this is totally untrue and that no matter who you are, there are opportunities available to you to become financially independent in less than five years…if you are willing to pursue those opportunities that exist! Do you have a son or daughter living with you right now? Share this with them! A chance of a lifetime! This is an honest opportunity!

I want to especially talk with ambitious veterans, college graduates, and any persons who are unemployed and underemployed. And even if you are employed and you want to achieve prosperity and become financially independent I want to talk with you as well! This blog with the title  “Road To Financial Independence” exists to help people do just that and several hundred people read posts here each day!

Prosperity Awaits!

 

How flexible are you? Are you willing to invest (10) minutes here  to change your entire career and lifestyle?  If you are, I am willing to share my 59 years of highly successful business experience with you as well as the opportunities that I am pursuing to rebuild my wealth again! Since 2008 after selling my successful financial advisory business of (12) years and thereafter suffering severe financial

Prosperity Awaits!
Recommended_Prosperity_Mindset_Reading_List.png

setbacks as a result of this economy,  I decided that I must rebuild my lifestyle and my legacy and I am in the process of doing this…and it is working. Are you aware that during your life cycle that it is not unusual to go through periods of economic prosperity and also periods of downturn with your finances? This does not mean you are a bad person…you could be the victim of unfortunate federal economic policy, lack of quality job opportunities, divorce, or loss of your home that is affecting so many, or returning from active duty in the military.  Some people experience bankruptcy, some are able to get by, however almost all want to be prosperous again…and so do I!

Prosperity Awaits!
The Road To Financial Independence

Do you have any interest in knowing what I have to share with you?

You may be one of our honored veterans to whom we owe so much and you are confined to sitting in front of a computer now… or you may be fully active with plenty of energy and ability to get out with the public. Doesn’t matter…either one works. You don’t need a college degree…a high school education provides you with adequate skills. You may or may not need to even talk with people. If you are of sound mind, full of ambition and drive, you potentially can be successful at what I have to share with you.

You will be working for yourself, building your own business(es) to be based anywhere in the world that has internet connections or you have a typical American population. You may choose to work from your home, an office or your thatched hut on some island somewhere (access to good internet connections required-maybe at the local resort hotel). You may be working somewhere now however you have at least (1) hour per day that you can pursue building your own expertise and your own business.  To me, multiple income streams are an extremely good path to a very successful life.

Becoming prosperous and financially independent requires personal commitment, a strong positive attitude, belief in yourself and a willingness to do whatever it takes to be successful. I know how to show the paths to you. You will have to exert the energy and commitment to do so.

Why would I help you? First I am a member of “Optimist International”and reading their “The Creed” at www.optimist.org is really worthwhile even if you go no further. Second, I am at a point in my life where one of my greatest satisfactions is helping others to be successful using my many years of wonderful business experience, and third, I am convinced that very few of the honest, experienced consultant class business people in the world are aware of what I can share with you. And fourth, I have interviewed, trained and selected individuals and built teams for start-up businesses for many years and this is a continuation of that process. For this I am rewarded as any entrepreneur.

I am willing to talk with you about these opportunities at no cost to you. I just ask that you be sincere and honest with yourself about wanting to achieve prosperity and financial independence. Our discussion offers no guarantees as these opportunities are not suitable for everyone and everyone will not be successful with them.

What I offer to you is an honest business discussion from a strong believer in Christ, who has allowed me to enjoy wonderful experiences in my lifetime. These will be straightforward, honest conversations. If you want to know more about me, my career and experience, just go to the “About Dan” tab on this blog.

Just email me at dannorris42@gmail.com telling me of your interests and share with me your email address and your phone number if you like.  I will respond to you as soon as practical. Your information will not be distributed or shared with anyone.

I sincerely look forward to hearing from you!

How to Make Your Best Employees Even More Profitable

Unfortunately, some of my worst decisions involved hiring the wrong employees. That said, some of my luckiest decisions, have been hiring the right employees. A bad employee will set you back months, if not years, and a good employee will pay for themselves tenfold.

So the real question becomes: How do you get the best performance out of good employees? Some would argue you just hire the right people and get out of their way, but I would submit that’s not enough.

Law of Attraction – Build It and They Will Come!

Today’s topic is about a “Marketing System” built on the principles of the “Law of Attraction”.

Law of Attraction
Attraction Marketing

There are two key examples of the “Law of Attraction” that I like to point to in order to give the reader a point of reference for my information.

The first example is the movie called Field of Dreams, a 1989 American fantasy-drama film, that received three Academy Award Nominations. The story is about building a baseball stadium in the middle of a farm field.  The second example is The Law of Attraction. A book and movie are available on the topic and you can watch the full length video on YouTube.

As an avid student and practitioner of many marketing approaches the concept of Attraction Marketing, Relationship Marketing, Article and Video Marketing are all  very appealing to me as compared to harassment Marketing, Interruption Marketing, Warm List Marketing, Direct Mail Marketing, Telephone Marketing, Shotgun Marketing, Ambush Marketing, Article Marketing,  Alliance Marketing, TV and Radio Marketing and on and on with many more types that are many times so boring and redundant. I find myself watching three or more programs on the TV just to avoid the commercial breaks on my primary program.

Marketing Concepts
Law of Attraction

To cite my preferences, tv commercials, cold calls, radio commercials, and calling on your warm market including your family and friends, are absolutely not my most enjoyable ways to invest time…at least for me.  And in our buying process most of us prefer to deal with a company and people that we know or that we can develop confidence in very rapidly. This approach is called “Relationship Marketing” and known to be the most effective marketing method currently in use. Now if this is the best possible marketing method how do we implement this concept to appeal to the millions of internet users that we do not know? Here is where the appeals of “Attraction Marketing” kick in. As human beings we have an insatiable desire for knowledge, and the internet provides us with an incredibly wonderful tool to share information. The concept of a marketer generating “content” that people are interested in reading… about goods and services that people want and need…and then providing goods and services of value to these readers is a basic description of “Attraction Marketing.”

If “Attraction Marketing” is of interest to you I suggest that you read the following free document authored by the leader and teacher of more than 350,000 people on this subject, Ann Sieg.  With her partner Ty Tribble, leading U.S. blogger, I am enjoying immensely learning about the art and science of prospective customers finding what they want.

Law of Attraction
Attraction Marketer’s Manifesto

Under the Attraction Marketing tab on my blog pages, you will find many posts on this subject. And I would welcome the opportunity to chat with you about them.

Marketing and Sales  

Who needs the internet?

Today’s topic!

Do you need the internet? Do you need it for marketing and sales? Or maybe you just like it for entertainment?

Why does the internet seem to have a much greater appeal to many people than television? Could it be that you can get very concise, useful, correct and interesting information from the internet?

Could it be that television is designed to entertain some with what I call mediaphobia…non-mind challenging blah that the low information sector seems to consume in great volume. I remember what pablum was for children and that is a majority of the diet that the mainstream media  feeds today to a dumbed down audience. This is true for many of their entertainment programs as well as for much of their biased news reporting. It is a professional disservice to the American people to choose not to provide accurate reporting on issues critical to each of us and this country. Not sure about you however I am really open to good, honest, all-American reporting as we once had. Now back to the internet.

In 1993 the internet was not even available to the public. That was only 20 years ago. If the internet is just reaching an adult age can you fathom where it will be in another 20 years…not just the internet…but digital technology…the ways we talk with each other around the world…the ways we are connected with each other…I am so pleased to talk with people around the world that I have never met…how very interesting…language barriers yes…however we have such excellent language translators now…can you imagine that you will be able to talk with anyone in the world online with immediate translation of your and their language…this is just around the corner. And we have mammoth worldwide communication developments happening around the world…if you would like to know more you can let me know you are interested…and these are mammoth and huge…if you like to get in on the ground floor of happenings to affect initially 178 countries of the world you need to tap in here with me.

Are Prospects Looking For You? Attract Them With A Blog!

Let Prospects Find You!
Attraction Marketing
Image-easym6.com

We are most familiar with personal direct sales situations…where the prospect and the seller meet face to face and discuss needs, wants and solutions.  In a given day the number of transactions that can occur in this manner may range from as low as 0 to as many as 200…depending upon the availability of both prospects and sellers…and the demand for the products and services involved. Usually the seller has performed advertising in the form of newspaper, tv media, direct mail or other method in order to attract the prospect to the sales situation…or it could be that the seller is making cold calls for whatever the reason. The buyer is attracted to the seller because there is something about the offer that is appealing. It could be a special price or certain product…the seller has found a way to attract the buyer to consider the offer. Now do you suppose that buyers are constantly deciding that they are in the market for products and services…and go online to search out their options to purchase? The data says that most shoppers have checked out their options online before buying.  Suppose that you could expose your products and services to 10 times the number of prospects that you are doing today. Would that be a good thing for you and your business? Ok…

The topic today is…”Are Prospects Looking For You? Attract Them With A Blog!

Are you beginning to get the message about the value of blogging? For clarification, blogging is part of a marketing system that provides valuable, educational and entertaining information to viewers on the internet by using attraction marketing or content marketing messages. If viewers become interested in the content of your messages…they will tell you by offering their information and requesting more information from you. Viewers find you by the way that you identify your website and the messages that you send out from your site. And yes there is some technology involved, including copywriting…that is how to you write appealing messages, website design…how to make your site easy to read and appealing, search engine optimization….how to use keywords to gain readers…and more, and especially fine-tuning always to improve your message, your site and your system.

Leads
Prospects

Recently I have focused on the subject of blogging, attraction marketing and content marketing as I am looking to connect with individuals that have interests in these topics.  I invite you to continue to join me to enjoy the blogs…and appreciate hearing from you in the comments. I especially invite you to request a free copy of “The Renegade Marketer’s Manifesto” below as well as a download of “The 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing on the right side of this page.

Why Content Marketing Is King

BY Mikal E. Belicove | October 20th, 2011

When it comes to marketing strategies, content marketing has just been crowned king, far surpassing search engine marketing, public relations and even print, television and radio advertising as the preferred marketing tool for today’s business-to-business entrepreneur.

Late this summer, HiveFire, a Cambridge, Mass.-based internet marketing software solutions company, surveyed nearly 400 marketing professionals about the state of the business-to-business, or B2B, market, and discovered that marketers are retreating from traditional marketing tactics such as search marketing and have made content marketing the most-used tactic in their brand-enhancing tool box. Fact is, according to HiveFire’s B2B Marketing Trends Survey Report, twice as many B2B marketers now employ content marketing as they do print, TV and radio advertising, according to the survey.

So you now are thinking about beginning your own blog to promote your business and are developing your blogging ideas! Great!

Blogging is a lot of fun if you like writing and creating valuable information for others. That really is what it should be about you know!

The absolute best blog sites to me are those that provide me with some useful and entertaining information that will apply somewhere in my lifestyle.

So, are you familiar with all of the blog sites available to you? How about the blog sites where you can blog free?

Do you know the most popular blog sites? Is it better to use a multi-site domain or what are the advantages of owning your own domain? pic1-Optimized

Will you be able to develop the blog site yourself or will you need assistance? How much? Please don’t underestimate this as I first did…my first three months I did on my own and learned in the fourth month that the team approach with the support of more than 1000 people with many experts is a lot more efficient and productive.

Do you intend to study copywriting to enhance your writing skills?I began in October 2012 with my first blog on Blogger.com, which is a very good free blogger site. My only concern was that I did not own the domain and that the owner of the site (Google) could make decisions which potentially could affect my investment of time and money. After studying with Ty Tribble, leading U.S. blogger, some say the #1 blogger going all the way back to 2003, and enjoying his training course MLM Blog Secrets, I opted to change my blog home to WordPress.org (WordPress.com is also a free site where you do not own your domain).   I am very pleased with that decision for many reasons. WordPress.org seems to be the most popular free site available, the only downside being  that it is built by contributors and if you need support, you need to have good, reliable access to someone who knows WordPress.org.380353_304468282896903_1155722452_ann&tywp

My purpose in writing this blog is to inform anyone considering blogging that there are many stages or phases which you graduate through to reach proficiency and productivity. It is not an overnight process however with access to an experienced team of people you can shave months off your learning and productivity curve.

I have always enjoyed writing so the study and art of blogging is highly interesting to me. Just to give you an idea of the several stages that I experienced, first was the study of attraction marketing and how to apply those techniques, copywriting, learning the value of content, how to design and format my blog to make it appealing so that others want to read it and come back again, the importance of geography and placement and design including color schemes of your blog, coming up with interesting ideas that should be appealing to your reading audience, determining who your target market really is, then finding ways to get my blog distributed, accessed and read by those that are interested. Let me just summarize today by saying that blogging is a lot of fun, it is very rewarding in many ways, it is a constant learning process, and I really wonder if you can ever reach perfection.

Now that you have somewhat of an overview of what my getting started with blogging experience has been, I want to share with the next most important step that you can take to decide if you want to get involved in blogging. It comes to me from Ann Sieg and Ty Tribble today in the form an email that includes the following message..

Attraction Marketing

THE ATTRACTION MARKETER’S MANIFESTO

Attraction Marketing Manifesto
Attraction Marketing Manifesto

Success in your own business, internet marketing or any other business, comes from making intelligent business decisions in all areas. In the last two years I have found two incredibly good business opportunities that are second to none. The first is an internet marketing approach that applies to any business ranging from internet marketing to storefronts. The basic principle that makes this approach so successful is that it is based on your prospects and customers finding you as opposed to you finding them. Technology has given us communication tools and other marketing techniques that allow people to search for what they want on the internet by typing in a few keystrokes. The savvy business person now needs to find marketing mentors that can help them in learning about Attraction Marketing and how to go about it.

Renegade Marketing

I am fortunate to have found Ann Sieg whom I consider the leader in Attraction Marketing strategies and training…and she has trained some 350,000 people around the world so that they can be profitable in their businesses. There is an offer below to provide you with a free copy of Ann’s highly interesting e-book…The Attraction Marketers Manifesto!

My secrets to success for those who choose to work with me also include mentoring and guiding them as to how to proceed in the study of necessary information and techniques. I have always been a do-it-yourselfer…rarely asking for any assistance…however after three months of determining my own direction…it was obvious that I needed to be a participating member of Ann’s Renegade Marketing Team…a closed group of more than 1000 professionals sharing information on how to best learn and implement Ann’s attraction marketing techniques.

As a result of my involvement with the Renegade Marketing Team I have been fortunate to receive the mentoring of a highly competent member of this team,  Edwin Cabrera, http://edwincabrera.com/Online Marketing Strategies – Online Marketing Consultant who has provided his knowledge and services to me for several weeks now..and this has been invaluable.  Also assisting me are several others who have many years of experience and expertise to help me become successful.

My important point is that it is rare that you can be successful by yourself…you need the right marketing strategy, the leading key mentors, and willing and competent individuals who will share their secrets to success on an ongoing basis. If you want to begin modern-day techniques of marketing your business, increasing your customer base and increasing profits. If you would like to build your internet marketing business with the latest marketing technologies…like “getting people to come to you rather than you sorting through them” to find warm prospects, I am really impressed with Ann Sieg’s excellent work for the last several years on Attraction Marketing!

Today’s Topic!

As I listen to the heartbeat of America today I believe that the single greatest need in our country is for many millions of our citizens to have the opportunity to earn a good income. This includes many who are un-employed and are seeking employment, many who are under-employed and have taken employment positions which are much less than their qualifications and earning capabilities, many who have taken reductions in regular wages because employers will not pay the usual incomes due to worker competition, and many people who have had their working hours slashed from 40 hours to 32 hours or less because of new government laws and regulations that penalize employers for the number of employees that they have or the number of full-time employees.

And then there is a significant number of people in the U.S. who have learned that they can make more from government handouts…averaging $30-$45k per year…than they can earn at legitimate jobs. The current administration is aware that less than 50% of U.S. citizens pay taxes, and insists that the 50% who work for a living, pay taxes and have any assets should sacrifice to take care of those who do not work. This administration chooses to penalize those who have and give to those who do not have. Is this the right way to run America?  Our country and it’s people are in a very serious unemployment and underemployment situation and so many have stopped seeking jobs that real unemployment continues well over 10%, even though the Labor Department’s new methods of reporting have changed drastically which allows reporting to portray the economy as much improved from what it really is now.

Why am I writing about this today? It is because I am so concerned about the millions of people who currently are not taking advantage of the opportunity to live the real American dream of free enterprise. This opportunity is available for you to seize now! Our economy is being restrained in so many ways by our government and policy now that it is choking the life out of capitalism. My purposes in writing about this are the following. First I think that every citizen that feels adversely affected by this current economic environment should contact their congressional and senatorial representatives and ask them to make changes to improve our situation. Secondly, the patriotic way of the American people is to get strong and overcome any obstacles that we face…as we always have done.

And thirdly, I challenge any Americans who want better lifestyles to take action to improve their incomes and financial status in life by becoming entrepreneurs. Yes, this means starting your own business either part-time or full-time, depending upon your situation, and preparing yourself to be financially independent and free of control from the government, employers, or anyone else who is deciding your standard of living.

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Social Hour In London

Today’s post is on one of my favorite topics…

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Most everyone that I know nowadays is saying…I wish I had more money to manage…however where there is a will there is a way…and many are saying… I am making great progress every day towards my goal of financial independence…that time when I am in total control of my time and my lifestyle…and I have no financial concerns ever for the future other than properly managing my wealth.

Yesterday we saw the Minnesota gentleman Paul White who won the $86 Million (before taxes) as his third of the Powerball Jackpot…he kidded about a family gathering recently where he was identified as the one most likely to rely upon winning the lottery as being “his financial plan”. This gentleman and his family and friends (see video below) are one lucky group as the odds for winning a 6-ball Powerball Lottery are in the range of 1 in 15 million. If you like these odds to plan your future then go for it…and I wish you luck. I prefer to rely upon the philosophy of hard work, committed to goals, never give up approach to achieving lifelong dreams approach…how about you?

And that opens dialogue on my next post for a series of pragmatic, practical recommendation steps that can be very valuable in helping you to reach your goals. I am going to give these suggestions as steps on  “The Road To Financial Independence” that I have found to be really important. I am speaking as a layman, with a lot of personal and professional experience, to share with you financial experiences so that you can proceed to the next level of learning and professional assistance whenever your situation justifies that you do so.

At the outset I want to make it clear that I truly support and recommend professional “comprehensive financial planning” for anyone that wants to improve themselves financially. By professional “comprehensive financial planning” I mean with those financial advisors who are truly qualified and act in the best interests of their clients. At the same time I am very reluctant to recommend everyone who calls themselves a “financial advisor” or “investment advisor”. These terms are so misused and vague that to me it does not have real meaning. My recommendations do not include those who just want to work with your investment assets like stocks, bonds, or commodity investments like gold and silver. Financial decisions affect all aspects of our lives and for a professional to give advice on financial matters to an individual I firmly believe that any recommendations should be based on information that includes a full understanding of the individual’s goals and risks owning the assets. Investment advisors certainly have a place in the financial advisory community however I do not include these individuals as clients in my target readers.

If you are committed to achieving financial independence for you and those that you love, if you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to research the subject of “comprehensive financial planning” and to meet with three or more advisors to make a selection of whom you would most prefer to partner with to receive professional financial advice and guidance. Let them recommend your best actions and approaches on all of your key financial issues. I believe very strongly in the value of benefitting from professional services and “comprehensive financial planning” by an experienced qualified financial advisor. They can help you grow, manage and protect your assets much better with their professional knowledge.

So with this introduction to the first in a series of several financial recommendations…I know that not everyone will go out tomorrow and select a financial advisor for comprehensive financial planning however I want you to get started on the process… beginning with some of the most important initial steps. The first step I will feature in my next post is one of the key subjects of a comprehensive financial plan…that of a “Cash Reserve”.

In personal finance, cash reserves are primarily short-term, highly liquid investments that earn a low rate of return that individuals want to have quick access to…for purposes of  meeting short-term, emergency or opportunity funding needs. We will discuss how much is recommended, how to create your cash reserve, where it should be kept and why it is so very important to your financial well-being!
