How to Control the Fear of Starting a Small Business

How To Overcome Fear

By Aaron Broverman  May 14, 2013

Even though an average of 130,000 businesses start-up in Canada every year, there are even more Canadians who’d like to start their own business, but various fears and trepidations are holding them back. According to a 2011 Royal Bank of Canada poll, one-third of Canadians (32%) would like to start their own business. In contrast, in the report “Perspectives on Small Business in Canada” by The Canadian Federation of Independent Business, 86% of Canadians disagreed with the statement, “Starting a small business is easy.” Reasons people gave for being hesitant to start their own business include lack of money, (57%) the amount of risk involved, (40%) uncertainty of the success of the business, (36%) and a lack of skills and knowledge (29%).

How To Have Fun Attracting Customers 24/7

How To Have Fun Attracting Customers 24/7!

It seems to me that we all work better when we are happy and are having Fun! How about you? I watched the program “The Five” this afternoon on Fox News…they celebrated their 2 year anniversary…and this group of five very, very different people really enjoy expressing their honest and candid opinions about the important subjects going on in our world every day. It is really interesting to watch and listen to the diversity of views…from the totally non-biased to the prejudicial….and how from these several views I can better understand and appreciate several viewpoints on any topic of conversation…usually lasting about 5 minutes.

And this broad range of diversity with several opinions and views is what I am trying to bring to you each day. It is not that I subscribe to all of the views that I present to you…it is that by watching and listening to each I believe that you can be much better informed to decide your own opinion.

Today I am providing three YouTube videos (the first is really funny to me) plus my favorite… Ann Sieg’s presentation on “The Renegade Network Marketer”.  This is the program that I sincerely recommend to you as I am succesful with this program…I train people and our system provides much more support that you will need to be successful. Enjoy…and contact me with any questions.

BY GREGG SCHWARTZ | FROM YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR

Naturally, many young entrepreneurs are fueled by ample helpings of passion and enthusiasm. But you know what they say about too much of a good thing, right?

While zeal will serve you immensely in multiple business arenas, too much enthusiasm can, among other things, sabotage a sales meeting in a blink. Here are four reasons why excitement is the enemy of sales success — and what you can do to channel your passion in a way that leads to better results:

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!

http://dannorris.marketersmanifesto.com/

I highly recommend that you click on the link to order this e-book.  Ann’s programs are very comprehensive, professional and second to none. This is my first major secret to share with you.

Legal Counsel

 

Today’s topic: The importance of legal counsel for a small business owner.

 

 

 

When starting a small business, when managing a small business, when hiring key employees, when facing any state or government regulation including health care issues, when leasing space, when developing benefits, when dealing with customers and employees on sensitive issues, when one of the company vehicles is involved in a traffic accident, when dealing with tax issues, and when doing virtually anything within a small business, competent legal advice is essential for the success of the small business owner.

Many small businesses must start on a “shoestring” of available finances and may undertake personally the role of an attorney in hopes of saving money. My advice to you is to seek the services of affordable, high quality attorneys so as to avoid the high risks of legal issues down the road. If you seek out the advice of a small business development center in all likelihood they will give you the same advice. There are affordable alternatives and you can avoid the average $200 to $350 per hour cost of most business attorneys.

How to Hire an Attorney

BY CLIFF ENNICO

attorney
legal

Hiring a good lawyer is crucial to any successful business. Here’s everything you need to know about finding, interviewing and hiring the very best.

There are two professionals every business will need early on: an accountant and a lawyer. The reasons for hiring an accountant are pretty obvious-you need someone to help you set up your “chart of accounts,” review your numbers periodically, and prepare all of your necessary federal, state and local tax returns. The reason for hiring a business attorney may not, however, be so apparent. A good business attorney will provide vital assistance in almost every aspect of your business, from basic zoning compliance and copyright and trademark advice to formal business incorporation and lawsuits and liability. First, some general rules about dealing with lawyers:

“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.

Identity Theft - Not Even Chief Justice Roberts Can Escape ID Fraud

Not Even John Roberts Can Escape Credit-Card Fraud

It’s possible that someone in Kentucky has been buying stuff with John Roberts’s credit card.

The Supreme Court’s chief justice has been traipsing around Washington, D.C., bemoaning to metro-area counter-workers that his credit-card info has been stolen, and that he now has to use cash.

First, it was a Starbucks barista, where Roberts stopped for coffee in suburban Maryland on Tuesday, before he heard arguments on California’s Prop. 8 gay-marriage ban. Roberts typically uses a card, but a Starbucks employee told The Washington Post that Roberts, this time mentioned the apparent identity theft, after paying cash….

If the Chief Justice Can Be an Identity Theft Victim, Is Anyone Safe?

by Matt Brownell, Mar 29th 2013

Confirmation Hearings Begin In The Senate For John Roberts

No one is safe from identity theft — not even John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

On the morning that the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments about gay marriage, Roberts was overheard telling a barista at his local Starbucks that he would have to pay cash for his coffee, as his credit card information had been stolen. The Associated Press spoke to a Supreme Court spokesperson, who confirmed that someone got hold of one of the Chief Justice’s credit card account numbers. Apparently that meant that Roberts had to use cash while he waited for a new card from the bank.

Supreme Court Justices: They’re just like us!

Roberts isn’t the first high-profile Washington figure to become the victim of identity theft lately — earlier this month, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the director of the FBI all had their credit reports stolen and posted to a Russian website. Celebrities including Beyonce Knowles were also affected……

Read the full story:

——————————————————————————-

It is important that Americans understand how to deal with identity theft issues most effectively.  It is very important to have as many of your key identification numbers monitored for activity as possible. You need to know as quickly as possible if your and that of your spouse…and especially your children…is being violated. Then you need to have the assurance of professional investigators, who understand the ways of correcting your problems, take charge of restoring your identity as quickly as possible. Be very cautious of any identity theft program that requires that you restore your own identity, no matter how much reimbursement, as restoration can take years even if you know what you are doing.

12 million people were victims of identity theft in 2012. Don’t wait until it happens to you. Get Peace of Mind today. Get protection before the event can happen and you are covered for restoration. Restoration coverage after it happens is a different situation. Be prepared for identity theft!

What Can Make Your 2013 A Terrific Success?

success_next_exit
SUCCESS



Happy New Year!  I sincerely hope that you had a great Holiday Season…and I wish you every success in 2013! Thank you for visiting my sites last year…that was a good beginning for me with you during the last two months of the year and I really appreciated each of you that came by to read…and especially comment and to those that took important steps to improve their lives..

And improving our lives will be my main theme and goal for 2013. If you are like me, I am so pleased that 2012 is behind us…that was a tough year for me…and I know for many of you. I congratulate you on hanging in there and being here to ring in the New Year…with hope and optimism and energy to do our very best and achieve success. With our belief and God’s continuing blessings we will thrive and good things will continue to be bestowed upon us.working-from-home1

This Is Where I Want To Be At The End of 2013…or somewhere like it…how about you?

So let’s get started on how to have an exceptionally successful 2013! Keep in mind that these are my opinions biased by many years of very enjoyable, fun and professional experiences accompanied by wonderful human beings!.

The first question to ask you is what would you like to happen to you or for you during 2013 so that you consider the year to be very successful? Each of us have very different lives and very different goals so therefore we need to define what would make us feel that we had a successful year on 12/31/2013. To start your thinking process about defining these goals let me ask you these several questions on which I plan to offer important, solid recommendations to help you. The list will grow during the year however right now, can you say that any of these apply to you? Here are the questions…and for us to have a meaningful dialogue…you need to be very honest with yourself as you answer…

1. .How do you feel about where you will be in your career in five years from now..in 2018?

2.  Is your current income what you would like it to be?  What do you really want to earn?

3.  Are you spending as much time with your loved ones as you or they would like?

4.  If your employer decided to cease business tomorrow do you have alternative employment…we call it a Plan B?

5.  Are you really enjoying what you are doing in your current employment?

6.  Do you have any money left over at the end of the month?

7.  Do you have a financial plan for your life? A financial advisor?

8.  Are you putting aside money for vacations, your retirement and children’s education?

9.  Do you feel financially independent now?

10. Do you choose how you invest your time or does your employer? How long does it      take for you to ride to/from your work?

11. Do you believe that if you  continue to do what you are doing you will achieve the maximum of what you want in life? It could be that you are very satisfied with your life as it is and if that is the case another post would probably interest you more.

12.  Do you have any personal legal issues including mortgage, debt, divorce, child support, traffic violations or other legal issues ?

13.  Do you have any current identity theft issues? Do you consider that identity theft protection would be valuable to you?

14.  Are you ready to be productively employed today.. and are not sure how to find the right solution that you can trust and not waste your time and energy? Are you confused by all the claims which are very misleading?

15.  Are you ready for a much improved lifestyle…associating with a very high quality class of people with morals, ethics, professional, intelligent people, and committed to success of all of their peers…through cooperation and committed work efforts.

Now if I can show you ways to achieve any of these goals at a cost within your budget…and to offer business opportunities that can lead you to financial independence would you like to begin making decisions that will help you to achieve these goals?

If so, in a series of posts I will begin addressing each of these questions. I hope that you will join me and give me questions and inspiration to give you the right answers!

Consider A Plan For Personal and Small Business Risks

Do you or your family ever feel at risk about anything? You may be so fortunate that you are blessed with total “peace of mind”! Or maybe some risks concern you. If they do then the next question is do you think you should do anything to minimize those risks? This post suggests that you take a few minutes to reflect on major risk areas in your lives and decide if you should take any actions. As humans, we are much more concerned with fear than with any other emotion that we experience…so why not explore ways to address our fears?

  • Financial Budgeting and Cash Flow Risks… Includes meeting your financial obligations such as paying your mortgage and bills and having enough money to do all the things you want to do including having extra money for travel, college, vacation, retirement, second home and more!
  • Career risks… Are you satisfied with your career and future employment situation? Are your earnings needs being met? Look good for the future? Do you have a Plan B?  Could additional and multiple income streams benefit your lifestyle and degree of financial independence?
  • Disability Income Risks… In the event of accident or long-term illness do you have protection for these possibilities?
  • Personal and Family Legal Risks… Includes those events that are subject to laws, actions by others who may want to file legal actions against you, by people who may not abide by the laws and adversely affect you, traffic violations, court representation and accidents,  which occur and may bring significant legal actions and consequences. What happens to you and your family in case of trivial or traumatic legal issues? Do you have any way to cover these costs? Do you know and trust good attorneys in all fields of law?
  • Identity Theft Risks… The risks associated with someone stealing your personal name and identity and using it or selling it to someone else, using your Social Security number and filing your tax return or using it for employment, your Drivers License number to avoid arrests or to gain the ability to drive, your checking account to gain access to your cash assets, and credit cards to purchase goods illegally. For (12) years now this has been the largest consumer complaint crime in the U.S. and some 30,000 new victims of identity theft wake up each morning to this very horrible event that many times takes professionals to access your private data and years to restore.
  • Medical Risks… Includes health issues whether caused by natural or accidental reasons. Most everyone would agree that if you do not have good health that all of your other aspects of life are very much in question. It is imperative that we maintain good health! Do you have good medical protection to protect you against depletion of your assets as well as adequate cash reserve and/or disability income insurance to sustain you through an extended period of time?
  • Home Ownership and Rental Risks… Includes those risks that occur in the event of fire, flood or personal activities on properties. Do you have insurance on your property, personal items, and personal injury, accident or lawsuit?
  • Automobile Risks… Includes risks of damage or destruction of property and injury to individuals. Do you have also have legal coverage to pay your family’s legal costs to represent you in the case of being charged with accidental homicide? Ask your agent if you have this legal representation? Rarely does an automobile policy include such coverage.
  • Small Business Ownership Risks… Includes thousands of issues involving legal contracts, reading and modifying contracts, legal advice and counsel, legal representation in case of suits,  legal costs, property costs, liability costs, healthcare costs and many others.  Do you have a plan for affordable legal services as a small business owner?

Do you have a budget planned for each of these potential risk areas? Do you think that it may be a good idea to protect yourselves for these risks?

It is my intention to inform you about solutions to solve these issues, at costs that you can afford, who can help you with each, and to give you options of what to do next.  Just contact me on my email at dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

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.

I am a very strong believer that anyone who chooses can take control of their life and with some critical thinking and mentorship make their lives much better.

Identity Theft

 

Identity Theft  

What is Identity Fraud?

ID Fraud Incraasing
Identity Fraud Increasing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Identity fraud may occur when someone steals personal information, opens credit card accounts in the victim’s name without permission, and charges merchandise to those accounts. Conversely, identity fraud does not occur when a credit card is simply stolen. Stealing one’s credit card may be consumer fraud, but is not identity fraud. Identity fraud is a synonym of unlawful identity change. It indicates unlawful activities that use the identity of another person or of a non-existing person as a principal tool for merchandise procurement.

Identity fraud can occur without identity theft, as in the case where the fraudster has been given someone’s identity information for other reasons but uses it to commit fraud, or when the person whose identity is being used is colluding with the person committing the fraud…

Protecting your child’s identity

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

We’re told to monitor our credit, to protect ourselves from identity theft. But who knew to apply that same wisdom to our offspring? Last year the number of identity theft victims reached 12.6 million, up 1 million from the previous year, according to a Javelin Strategy and Research Identity Fraud Report released Feb. 20, 2013.

According to the AllClear ID 2012 Child Identity Theft Report, about one in every 40 households with young children is being affected. “Child identity theft is a fast-growing crime,” said Robert Chappell, a veteran Virginia State Police Officer and author of “Child Identity Theft: What Every Parent Needs to Know.” “Criminals target children because kids have clean credit records and the theft can go undetected for years.

The Top 25 Network Marketing Companies

by The Staff at Nexera™ LLC
Who are the Top 25 Network Marketing Companies? Well, it really depends on how you define “The Top 25…” As you might imagine, the truth can be a bit subjective. For example…
The best-selling car in the World is the Toyota Corolla. Apparently it’s a great car, and yet at the same time is probably not the car of your dreams. Which begs the question, “Does an MLM company deserve a higher ranking simply because more people are involved?”

Decision Making Process and Critical Thinking Skills

Critical Thinking Skills
Einstein - Critical Thinking

Which is more important? The Decision Making Process or Critical Thinking Skills? Yesterday my post focused on the Decision Making Process...the steps…the importance of the very first decision in the process deciding “do I have a need”? And if you get this first decision wrong then obviously you have made a bad decision on the entire subject. For example, if you are making a decision as to whether you may need professionals to help you with a specific area of need and you decide that you don’t have a need in that area, when in fact you obviously do have a need, then you have ignored the need, not understood the potential consequences of ignoring the need, or you decide that you will take the risk and the consequences which typically is an irresponsible conclusion.

Just Look Up The Answers
Just Look Up The Answers

I am sure that none of my readers want to consider themselves irresponsible.  Probably the most recurring conclusion is that…yes, I have the need but cannot afford to do anything about it. If this is the case then your income is not at the right levels and that is certainly an issue. You need to be talking with a competent person who can help you earn more money!

From Wikipedia on Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is an important component of most professions. It is a part of formal education and is increasingly significant as students progress through university to graduate education,

Critical Thinking Skills
Decision Making Process

I see many very intelligent professionals make incorrect decisions on the first decision question in the decision process…“do I have a need?”  This specifically applies in the case of the decision on “do I need the services of a financial advisor, a CPA, a law firm, a business consultant or trainer, an insurance broker,  or a doctor”. Much of my life has been devoted to working with responsible people who realize that their lives can be much better if they elect to select and work with professionals in these fields. In building my practice as a financial advisor I found more than (300) people who agreed that it would be in their best interests to work with a professional financial advisor and respected company.

I consider that your decisions on these key issues really decide what level of financial independence you will ever achieve.RealLife I would encourage you as professionals and good business managers to rethink your decisions on key needs to accomplish financial independence and ask yourself…do I really need that professional or am I just kidding myself that I can do it myself? I assure you my friend if you have decided that you are going to do all of your professional jobs yourself, you will never have the opportunity to achieve financial independence. There is a thin line between mediocrity and brilliance…the same for excellent success and just getting by. Some describe it as an “edge”. What do you prefer for you and your family? Tomorrow’s post…a review of key professionals that I know can help you tremendously! Sometimes you may not know the right solutions for your needs.
