Keys To A Successful Home Based Business!

This post is to share my ideas about the

“keys to a successful home based business!”

 

If you are thinking about or are already running your home based business I recommend that you read these recommendations and determine if they have been considered in your present or future business. My experiences say that these considerations  are critical to achieving major success in your own business.

If you have followed my posts for the last few days you will remember that the latest data reveals that only about 3% of those working on the internet have broken even and made as much money as they have invested. Right now some 32 million people are working on the internet without making any profit and wondering why? This is supposed to be simple!

Next you would remember the 80/20 rule where some 20% of the U.S. population continues to educate and retrain themselves in order to be employed successfully. And because they take this action they typically wind up with the jobs.

There are at least three other major considerations regarding business success that I would like to share with you regarding your new or future home based business.

The first major consideration is that to make the 3% or the 20% categories of success above that it will be very important to associate yourself with a team of professionals that can and will give you ongoing guidance and advice as you work to make your business successful. A business is an ongoing process, not an isolated event, and advice, decisions, corrections and actions must be taken daily to assure success and avoid failure.

Stay Active
Make Some Travel Money

The second key consideration is for you to have a proven marketing system that will generate adequate prospects for your business so that buyers will generate the sales volume to produce the desired profits to sustain your business. How many buyers will you need at the price levels of your products and services to generate needed profitability? How many prospects will you need to have consider your products and services to produce the number of buyers that you will need? How many prospects will turn out to be buyers?

Self Employed
Online Jobs From Home

The final major consideration is the amount of start-up cash  and ongoing
working money that you can invest in your business. Do you have $100 to $500 minimum as start-up money and will you be able to invest $100 or more per month in the necessary expenses that any business faces? These are minimum amounts, however unless you can set aside these amounts to assure success I would recommend that you find a way to provide the funds through loans or begin savings now.

It Can Be Done
Build Your Business!

I have a very favorite saying that I repeat to myself from time-to-time and that is…”you don’t know what you don’t know” which means to me that you can either work with someone who does know or you can find these things out on your own by experience. It is a lot more fun to follow a successful, proven approach with someone who you can trust and have confidence in working alongside.

It would be a pleasure to work with you if these considerations make sense to you and you are ready to get started. Get in touch with me now to discuss what you want to accomplish! Contact me on email at dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

God Bless America!
Land That We Love!

What a horrific week for Americans…Boston first and then West Texas. Our heartfelt sympathies and strong  prayers go out to all those who are suffering and grieving over the loss of family and friends from both of these tragic events.  And a tremendous amount of gratitude goes to all of the first responders including all of the police, fire fighters, EMS, FBI, hospital medical professionals and anyone who were so committed to bringing justice to bear and help others. The cheers, shouts of USA and flag waving by many young people in the streets of Boston were very encouraging and made me proud of our country!  May all those we lost rest in peace and in God’s Grace as we move forward from these tragedies.

It is obvious that our country is in tremendous transition and with great challenges, both domestically and internationally. Americans have always found a way to overcome incredible obstacles before and I have hope and I will pray that we can do so again. This time it is considerably more challenging as the American people do not seem united except in tragedy…or it seems to me to be that way. I have the impression that approximately half the population wants a very strong social agenda and continued excessive spending and the other half of the population wants to balance the budget as normal human beings do who cannot live on government handouts….handouts that really come from you and me as tax paying citizens.

Those people who balance their budget monthly are also considered financially sound and principled. One half of the American population is looking for intelligence, strength and non-political leadership to show us the way to save our country and all the people who are suffering …from tragedy as well as from the inept economic decisions and destructive overspending policies that have been practiced for the last several years. Especially including the congressional lawmaking by incompetent congressmen and senators who have a large responsibility for our current situation…and here I point directly to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Politicians have found ways to make themselves very wealthy and exempt from the policies that apply to citizens like you and me…which is extremely disturbing.

And in addition to having an international set of sword rattlers who are flexing their muscles with the threat of nuclear bombs and missiles, we have the jihad religious groups growing in population in every country and insisting upon death of anyone who does not believe in jihad principles. As we do not and never will believe in these extremist political/religious views…Islamic Jihadism is not just religious views…it also includes their way of law which means annihilation of millions of people…and the street bombings and IUD bombings continue as they did by two young jihadists this week…radical Islam is at work around the world to destroy humanity. And we need very much to have presidential leadership that will acknowledge this truth and take appropriate action. How do we stop the jihad clerics presiding over both the religious views and the political views of a massive population.  I do not believe we can deal legally with these issues as civil matters..these are terrorist matters and our presidential and attorney general leadership needs to call it what it really is…may God Bless America!

During my lifetime I have heard many times that…that about 25% of our population are “crazy”…including psychiatrists…LOL…however it seems that we have a larger percentage of citizens that do not practice rational thinking which includes making good decisions. When you add those on alcohol and drug dependence we may have more than 25% who are incapable of being responsible for themselves in this society…wow…do we have an uphill challenge to get in control of all these things or not? This is why we see such awful legislation coming out of our Washington leadership…there are so many partisan groups pandering to satisfy (and so many lobbyists with so much money influence)  that we cannot reach rational conclusions…for example..the current major oil pipeline decision which could clearly place this country in a positive economic position were it not for political and sociological pressures.

And finally, regardless of the above, I have endless hope for any individual that wants to help themselves, and I encourage anyone that has reached a decision that they want to do better in their financial lifestyle  to give me a call. We will have a friendly chat if nothing else.

May God Bless All! And May God Bless America!

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
Ann Sieg
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! The Attraction Marketers Manifesto…Click here now to get your free copy!

Have You Considered Working From Home?

Phillip Phillips – Home

Have You Considered Working From Home?

  • What are the benefits? What are the challenges and  disadvantages? Can you work from home and own your own business? Will my employer allow me to work from home? All are key questions that deserve careful consideration and evaluation!
  • With our new options of working from home either on a part-time basis or a full-time basis…you now have the choice of enjoying your family and loved ones more or working together with them from a home location. This is a great choice…as you can consider the comparative costs of traveling to and from work, the amount of time required to do so,  the important consideration of whom you want to spend your working time with, the relative efficiency of either working at an office, traveling, on the road or at your home.  All of these choices now allow us a new degree of freedom if we choose to exercise it.  For those who can utilize good work practices and work ethics, then potentially they can be much more efficient.
  • I will say that the freedom to work from home creates some challenges…like will you watch that favorite tv program or apply yourself to your work…will you set good work hours for yourself and keep them…it is very easy to be distracted with so many things that go on within your home. Personally I worked in several areas many years in large offices on scheduled hours, in my own personal offices, traveling the U.S. Monday through Friday calling on companies and using my motel as my  office, in one case I drove to and from work 50 miles each way and then traveled 13 states via airplane and automobile, and for the last few years I have elected to work from my home office. Of all of the experiences that I have had, I find that a home office is the most desirable for me…and I can pack my bags and take my home office across the country to any location in Florida, the U.S. or Canada…and accomplish what needs to be done effectively.  One of the greatest advantages to working from home for me is have access and be near those that I care the most about…that is the ones I love as well as my friends. When I spent most of my time each day at the office or on the road, I really missed the interaction with my loved ones. This is by far the greatest advantage that I hear from those who work from home.
  • Many people need the structure of going to an office to be with their other workers every day, or perhaps the work requires that they be present in order to accomplish what needs to be done. In any case, we now have an estimated 40 to 50 million people who are now working either part-time or full-time from home…or a traveling home at their choice. And given the economic environment and since the internet is only some 20 years old now, we are heading into a direction of many more people working from home…and using the internet and the phone as their telecommunications devices.

So studies have been completed to date comparing the pluses and minuses of where you work…there is yet to be grand comparison prepared about which is most efficient however some meaningful studies are emerging.

In summary, my opinions are that the option to work from home opens up many new opportunities and choices of where we want to work, and dependent upon your work requirements, your personal preferences for managing your own time, enjoying your freedom more, spending more time with your loved ones, all enter greatly into the equation of what you would like to do. I do strongly recommend that you consider all options available to you, and the underlying constraints of each. It is an important decision to make as you plan your career and I hope that you will give it ample and due consideration when the time comes.

Home Office vs. At the Office: Which Is More Efficient?

By Bruce Kennedy Posted 9:00AM  01/17/11

Call it telecommuting, telework or working from home: It appears more of us are earning at least part of our salaries from home, and with the boss’s blessings.

According to a survey by the human resources group WorldatWork, the number of Americans who work either from their homes or remotely at least one day a month rose by 74% between 2005 and 2008, to more than 17 million. And if you add to that figure the so-called “contract telecommuters” — folks who are self-employed or run their own businesses — the number jumps to nearly 34 million people.

“The Magic Of Thinking Big”

Hello Weekend Warriors…welcome! The message tonight is to give you some great music to enjoy and also to introduce you to my primary mentor professor at Georgia State University…Dr. David J. Schwartz…the author of a tremendously popular book…

“The Magic Of Thinking Big”

The weekend music is now up on my blog…if you will go to the “MUSIC” tab up top you will find some 15 posts with about 6 great songs on each post…you can play these songs while you read my blog posts…if you like. In any case I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Hello to my loyal readers and newcomers-welcome!..thank you for coming to visit my site…I sincerely appreciate your doing so! I also hope that you had a great week!…and that you are happy with the progress that you made this week towards your personal and financial goals….I know that you have them…or else you would not be stopping by and looking in at at my posts.

I do appreciate your coming to visit…and I really would like your comments as to how you feel about this or that, what you like or don’t like, and what you would like to read more of about…thank you in advance…if you don’t want to publish what you are thinking then just go to my contact page and get in touch any of several ways.

Be happy!
Enjoy your weekend!

My week was very satisfying in terms of progress against goals that I had…I was about to publish my book last week on Amazon and lo and behold…a wonderful professional graphics artist in Vancouver, BC, contacted me saying she would enjoy working with me and that she would like to design my book cover front and back. Such an offer I could not refuse…and working with she and my attraction marketing mentor…the book has moved up several quality notches…Edwin Cabrera in Virginia believes in the “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson…and I recommend it to you as well. Deanna Everrt, as professional marketer and graphics artist designing my book cover and copy is far beyond my wildest dreams. I have found the proverbial goal mine of talent with Ann Sieg’s Renegade Marketing and wherever I look there is somebody ready to help me get to the next step…a higher level….a greater degree of achievement…more satisfaction of helping people get what they want…this is what it is all about. Being a loner in a small business can be challenging. Being a team member accessing all levels of expertise is far more effective.

Have a grear weekend!
Make others happy!

As you help other people achieve their goals, your dreams will come true. You and I both know this. Just wanted to speak with you personally this Friday night to share my feelings. And yes, I know that I am always proposing something to you…however…keep in mind that it may very well benefit you if you took advantage of some of my offers.

I have a very special free offer for you this weekend….a $20 value book that has brought me millions of dollars….probably the first and most motivational book ever for me from one of my college professors…google him and see what I mean…Dr. David Schwartz, PhD and motivational marketer….author of “The Magic of Thinking Big”….plus others…but if you will send me an email to dannorris42@gmail.com….I will surprise you with a bonus for reading this. Have a great weekend.

Help Me Start My Own Business and Work From Home!

Help Me Start My Own Business and Work From Home!

How to become productively employed and become financially independent. 

With more than 23 million people now reported as being unemployed…and 46 million people on food stamps… many people are actively searching for employment.   In addition to these numbers it is reported that many millions have given up on finding employment and have dropped out of the work force.

Are you any one of these? Do you know that opportunities exist for virtually everyone? This is the American way…we can do whatever we want if we want it bad enough. You do not have to settle for government programs. If you cannot find employment in your local area then consider a location in the U.S. that you may relocate to and find employment. We have certain parts of the country with less than 3% unemployment.

And then when you analyze the success level of internet marketers it is estimated that only about 3%-5% are making money and 95% go out of business within 1-5 years due to lack of making a profit and their operating cash is depleted. It appears to me that our population is just not trained to successfully perform the employment opportunities that are available. This means that to be successful then you must find training resources that are effective and affordable for you.

We are very fortunate in life to have many great motivational and inspirational speakers and leaders. For me especially a Georgia State University professor by the name of Dr. David Schwartz…author of “The Magic of Thinking Big”…as well as taking as many marketing courses of his that I could find. Whenever I could hear a motivational speaker or take a course from one I usually did this. When living in Mountain View, California…which is in the heart of entrepreneurial thinking in this country…and living as well in the northeast sector of the U.S. north of Boston, it was clear that the majority of individuals in these communities were intent upon opening new business frontiers. In these cases…many were technology frontiers…which has proven to be a major strength for our country. We are known in this country to be innovators, idea developers, creators, with an intellectual and industrial environment that has been made possible by a wonderful business philosophy called capitalism!

This post is named specifically… Help Me Start My Own Business and Work From Home!…which is the ultimate solution for any ambitious, hard-working, industrious family and home loving individual. Putting in the hard work and taking the risks to make it successful require a lot of effort, however tremendously rewarding as you can become totally financially independent and self-reliant. In the process you have provided goods and services to people who want and need them…and they have rewarded you with their business. And keep in mind that you can continue what you are currently doing to earn income and work a few additional hours part-time to start your own business. I firmly believe that any person can begin by getting the best paying job possible for their given talents, even if minimum wage, and supplementing that income by getting additional jobs and creating additional income streams somehow. This is the American Way…we have always done this…except those who have been born into wealth and never had to go through this process.

There are many different ways of creating income streams…by being employed by the hour…or by the week or by the month. Once you find such employment, then you can create additional income with a second or third job or business opportunity. Further, if you can set aside 10-15 hours per week additional, there are many ways to create income. An excellent way to increase your income is through direct sales…as human beings want to buy from someone they can trust. Many advertise that you can make thousands of dollars per day, week or month  working on the Internet. I look at this as I would by playing poker or the roulette wheel…the odds of your being successful on the Internet are very risky. But it can be done.

The question is how? The biggest question that these new people have is “how do I get started”. And there is a good answer…how likely is that person to finding that answer with the multitudes of solutions that are being touted and advertised every day. If you choose to rely upon the Internet for your additional income,  I suggest that you exercise extreme caution!   However just because someone is working  on the Internet does not mean that you are going to make money. I do believe that a limited number of people after devoting many years of trial and error have found successful ways to make money on the Internet as well as multilevel marketing. I suggest to you that it is not easy to find these successful people, as many tout their knowledge and success however very few can prove it. Please be very cautious.

My years of experience lead me to the conclusion that you can create financial independence and wealth by following several proven paths and strategies. I outline these as follows. First is to have a substantial steady stream of income that you can count on each month. Next is to find other good opportunities that permit you to increase this income by hourly employment or by some action that creates products or services to generate income. And finally the wealth creator is that income generator that has a terrific set of products or services that people need and want, these services are fairly priced, the market for the products is large enough to create volume sales, the compensation package for marketing the products is very good, and you can use several marketing techniques to take the products to market.

Again I believe that owning your own business is the most successful way to earn substantial income where human beings are involved, and then you can select effective marketing techniques that will supplement your direct efforts…and the more effective the better. The Internet is in its infancy with respect to offering fully public techniques for successful marketing. This is why so many people are not successful marketing on the Internet.

However, some techniques have emerged as being reasonably successful, however very costly. For example the techniques of paying for cost per click (CPC), SEO optimization, and other methods are available but usually are not affordable to the average person’s pocketbook.

I am exceptionally encouraged by the development of “Attraction Marketing” techniques on the Internet. These techniques have been in use in industry for years in the form of media advertising, however we are now seeing these techniques paying off on the Internet. It is for these reasons that I am recommending proven experts Ann Sieg with her Renegade Manifesto and Ty Tribble with his Blogging Secrets as keys to a potentially successful internet marketing approach. Using these very experienced teachers you can very much improve your likelihood of success in whatever field or choice of internet marketing that you pursue. By learning and implementing Attraction Marketing and Blogging techniques, these can be applied to virtually any business opportunity.

As I said I hear of many money-making programs now available however given my experiences and goals, I am very selective about the programs that I choose to add to my business. The reason is that my time is very valuable and I want to maximize effectiveness of my time and my results.  The programs that I have chosen offer all of the elements of a business entity to me that I need to be successful, including unmatched compensation programs that allows me to earn residual income throughout my lifetime and in my will leave it two generations into my family members.

As I believe strongly in sharing with others to benefit them as others have done for me, I invite you to contact me at my email on dannorris42@gmail.com or phone at 407-749-9395.
