To do something, however small, to make others happier and better, is the highest ambition, the most elevating hope, which can inspire a human being.

The value of competent mentors as well as talented team players are immeasurably valuable to successful accomplishment! The higher the competency levels and effectiveness of both the mentors and the players, the greater the level of achievement! Dan Norris 2013
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.
While you may think success brings happiness, research shows it’s actually the other way around. Happy employees have shown to have higher levels of productivity, lower burnout and turnover and are more creative than unhappy employees.
When you hear the words…Focus! Focus on Your Target Market! Do you know who really is your target market? How do you determine that? I would be very interested to hear your comments from on the subject of “How To Determine Your Target Market”…

Superachievers do things differently than the rest of us. They don’t always have everything in common, but they have some underlying traits that they share. Below are a few characteristics that they are prone to have in common:
VideoSometime during the spring of 1995, you and I were given access to the Internet for the first time. Since then, related innovations have produced a new marketplace where businesses of all sizes turn prospects into customers in a virtual, parallel universe. Here is a short list of the significant innovations…
I hope that you are there right now thinking about how you can get some money to start or grow your business! And your need could range from the entrepreneur who has never tried to start a business before to the owner in business for several years who is ready to take the next step in your growth plan.
This post will give conceptual ideas for all of those range of needs and give you places to search for more information or to come for more discussion on how best to go about your specific need…and that is to call or email me. There is no charge…it is time to give back for all those who helped me!
Need Funds For Your Small Business?
Let’s take this in steps…let’s say that you have your business idea in mind and you know that you need to develop a business plan if you haven’t done so yet. You know the product or service you want to offer, you have identified a need in the market, you consider that buyers will pay the price that you can offer, you have a marketing plan, and you now need some money to get started or to grow to the next level.
Where do you start or go now? You start first by determining how much money you will need to get your business to the next level… think about your needs over a 3-year period in terms of 3-month or quarterly segments. Put together a budget that will allow you to be successful within that 3-year period…many small businesses require more time than 3 years however looking at this time frame will give you a good estimate of the amount and timing of the money that you will require. So now you have a 3 year estimate planned out in 3 month periods or quarters. What is your total for the first year? The second year? The third year? How long will it take you to get customers to buy your products or services to meet those totals plus your profit targets?
For anyone starting a small business the odds are very much against success, it usually takes longer than you planned to be successful, and it takes more money than you expected. This is not to discourage you…it is only said to prepare you for reality.
Successful small business owners deal with a lot of adversity, are extremely determined to succeed, and usually make good decisions, especially when it comes to money matters. Decisions matter.
So depending upon the amount of money that you have estimated that you will need for your business over 3 years…here are the range of options that I consider that you have to give you some idea of where to begin and where to obtain funds…you can start with as little as $100 or obtain venture capital funding for millions of dollars…it all depends upon what your business venture will require…here are several of your options…
1. Personal Savings
2. Credit Card Loans
3. Bank Loans – Secured or Unsecured
4. Loans from relatives or friends
5. Group or Crowd Funding
6. SBA Loans
7. Angel Funding
8 Venture Capital Funding
This should give you an idea of your options…how do you go about pursuing any of these to get started or to fund your business?
There is excellent information available on the internet to give you a starting point.
And for anyone with questions about a given approach I have experience personally with most of these options and will be pleased to discuss any with you on a no-charge basis.
Just give me a call on 407-749-9395 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you.
