So Are You Looking To Realize The American Dream?

The American Dream
The American Dream

Maybe you just graduated from college and you have the “average $33,000 college tuition debt” or more. You have now begun searching for a corporate “JOB” in a career field in which you are qualified, or maybe any field that will help you pay your bills and/or move out from mom and dad. Or maybe you graduated a year or two ago or more and you wonder how you are going to get on the right career path.  Or maybe you have been a victim of the downsizing in this most unusual American economy and you are wondering how you can ever have an enjoyable, pleasureful life for you and your family again.

So Are You Looking To Realize The American Dream?

 

Or maybe you are one of those incredibly wonderful veterans returning from your all voluntary service and you are ready to begin your way to achieve the American Dream! May God Bless All of You for Your Service and placing your country and all of the people that live in it before your own priorities. We are so proud of you!!!

As a veteran of the Korean War in the 1950′s I empathize with you and on this very special Memorial Day Weekend, honor you and all veterans who have sacrificed their lives or even more for this country. I watched the TV History Channel for five hours yesterday and relived WWII where I remember on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Did you know that 8 million Americans fought in this war and that 415,000 American Soldiers died defending America? May God Bless every one of them and their families. And this goes for all of you during the Iraq and Afghanistan military campaigns who have lost your loved ones, your arms or legs or eyes or ears, and have been maimed for life. May God Bless every one of you.

This post is dedicated to anyone and everyone that wants to realize “The American Dream”, no matter what your background or experiences, or how many arms and legs that you have now. With my (60) years of business experience I have succeeded in achieving the dream in my opinion and want to share with those interested as to how you might shorten your journey on that path. I am not filthy rich as are many who are extremely fortunate, and I have been up and down and up and down the ladder of success which seems to be typical in a capitalistic society. At this time I am very thankful for this country, the opportunity here, and the fact that I can share with others experiences that can be very beneficial.

So how can you “Realize The American Dream”?

I am offering to share valuable information with you, without charge, and my reward will be that of getting you on your path. You may already know it all and you need no advice from your parents, your counselors, your peers and your friends, which is a real mistake. Very frankly, I sincerely wish there had been an internet when I came along and that there were successful people who were sincerely interested in advising me. I would have achieved much more than I ever have. Do you think that Donald Trump provides a service with his development of entrepreneurs?

So what could I possibly do to help you to be successful (and not charge you an arm and a leg)? Sound trite? It is not. One of these days you will appreciate every helping hand that you can find. Here’s how we can get started…

1.   Have you recorded on paper so that you can see it at all times…your goals and objectives for the next 1 and 3 and 5 years. If not, are you willing to develop these now, print them out and post them in front of your computer? If not…thanks for reading this so far however reading any further will be a waste of your time.

2.   Have you decided if you want to work for a corporation or someone else all your life or at some point in time do you want to be financially independent on yourself only?  I ask that you write the answer to this question on your goals and objectives page and state what you want and when.

3.   Have you inventoried your skills and recorded them on paper?

4.   Have you inventoried your likes and preferences and recorded them on paper?

5. Have you inventoried your constraints so that you can narrow your searches to the real opportunities available?

If you will do these things, then contact me, together, based on your goals, we can discuss the next steps.  You can reach me at email dannorris42@gmail.com or 407-749-9395.

By the way, my advice for you will be focused on helping you achieve financial independence…not a “JOB” which I refer to as a “just over broke” opportunity…which can also be a lot of fun and very enjoyable. I did this for (30) years with the top (10) corporations in America as well as (7) start-up companies for another (26) years. I currently have five businesses that I manage from my computer with a two hour per day investment. I wake up excited every morning to see what has happened around the world…and to see if I really made some substantial money overnight! Realizing the American Dream is not an overnight phenomenom…it is a process which takes commitment, a reasonable amount of time, and belief in yourself that you can be successful. Would you like to do this? Could you commit one to two hours per day to the goal of achieving financial independence?

It would be a pleasure to talk with you.

And by the way, before writing this blog post, I had the privilege of watching and listening to Steve Smith of ESPN and I find him to be highly inspirational and to make a lot of common sense…please listen to Steve…

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

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!

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!

It is fitting to have a Ben Graham quote open this essay because I owe so much of what I know about investing to him. I will talk more about Ben a bit later, and I will even sooner talk about common stocks. But let me first tell you about two small nonstock investments that I made long ago.

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!

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.

Need Funds For Your Small Business?

Need Funds For Your Small Business?
Money

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.

Need Funds For Your Small Business?
Financial Independence

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…

Do You Need Money To Start Your Business?
Finally it’s time to start your own business!

1.   Personal Savings

2.   Credit Card Loans

3.   Bank Loans - Secured or Unsecured

4.   Loans from relatives or friends

4..  Grants

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 dannorris42@gmail.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

So You Want To Know What To Do With Social Media?

Internet Marketing Strategy
Internet Marketing Strategy
www.businessmarketingblog.org

There are many Americans now that are seriously interested in starting their own business…either full time or part-time. If you are one of those and have some questions about how to get started…. especially with how to start with your internet marketing strategy including social media then this post is especially for you. First let’s say that social media consists of a very broad spectrum of companies,  however the key names now in social media are Facebook, Google, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest and and several more that are growing in importance every day. An internet marketing strategy also include more than just social media so  we must add at least at a minimum these:

  • individual internet websites
  • blog sites
  • news and magazine media
  • links between all of these.

So You Want To Know What To Do With Social Media?

So if you agree that this is a basic definition of the tools available from which to build an internet marketing strategy, and you want to start a business, where do you start deciding and where do you focus your time and energy? Do you need a website? Do you need a blog? Do you need a Facebook Page? A Twitter Page? A Google Community? What strategy can you develop for all of these. There is a beginning point that considers the “why” of all of these. Why would you do this or do that? What is the benefit? What are your goals?

Simple right?…just build a (……………) site….you fill in the blank because you have recently found a company that will make you rich in less than a year and you will be financially independent for the rest of your life. Hey… Please stop and wake up and smell the roses ok! Believe it or not, I have some important information for you to consider based on considerable personal experience. There are many in industry who can help you however finding a better source with honest motivations is not an easy task….and by the way you are already here on this site…so it behooves you to gain the opinion here and bounce it against any other opinion that you can find…ok! You may be just starting your new business, you may have a Facebook page, Google Page, a Pinterest page, a LinkedIn site or other site that is bringing you profits (or losses)! Even so, is what you have done the best possible strategy that you can take, or would you like to know more about how you can inform yourself of more comprehensive strategies? This week I connected on LinkedIn with a wonderful chap from Ireland and we talked today about his business. He is doing quite well with his direct selling business however wants to grow it with the internet. He very much believes in the idea of being open for business 24/7 as well as having prospects find him through Attraction Marketing and Blogging as opposed to him having to find all of his prospects through direct selling.  He is currently in the process of building a WordPress blog site which is an excellent decision, however he is not quite sure as to how to approach a strategy with the rest of the media websites.  With a 15-minute fun conversation between great guys from  Ireland and Orlando my new friend Bobby and I  shared important ideas that give him a new perspective that will allow him to leapfrog for couple of years what he can do next that can move his business forward much more rapidly.

10 Questions to Ask When Creating a Social-Media Marketing Plan

BY     September 16, 2013

Ever heard the saying “Failing to plan is planning to fail?” That old but wise adage often rings true when it comes to social-media marketing. Creating a detailed, goal-oriented social-media strategy is just as important as having a rock solid business plan.

“If your social-media plan is to just wing it, your fans and potential customers are going to know,” says Amy Porterfield, social media strategist and co-author of Facebook Marketing All-In-One for Dummies (Wiley, 2013). Worse, it could turn them off of your brand and on to your competitors.

To attract and engage social-media fans and followers — and ideally convert them into customers — you’ll need to carefully map out a clear, effective social-media strategy. Here are some questions you should ask when building your company’s social-marketing plan:

5 tips to help you get out of your own way and commit to making your business a success

You’ve heard it a million times by now: We’re in the midst of the worst recession any of us will ever live through and no one knows how long it will last, or how much harder it will hit.

I agree: It’s a lousy picture. But one of the biggest dangers of an economic downturn is the excuse it gives small-business leaders to lie down and do nothing.

Ron Finklestein    February 23, 2006|

These 14 traits show up again and again when examining the reasons behind business success.

How does a small company become successful? Despite the bad news we so often hear about the number of small businesses closing or moving, the news really isn’t all that bad: Thousands of small businesses startup every year, and a good percentage of those companies have learned what it really takes to survive the early startup years and become successful enterprises.

After working with dozens of small companies, I discovered that the successful ones share some common traits. Here, then, are the 14 qualities I’ve witnessed in many of the thriving small businesses I’ve worked with:

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.

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.

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.

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Social Hour In London
London’s Pubs

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!

Have You Considered Working From Home?

Phillip Phillips - Home
PhilPhillipsVEVOPhilPhillipsVEVO

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.

For Deanna Evertt - A Letter of Appreciation and Recommendation!

My topic today is a testimonial…For Deanna Evertt

This is “A Letter of Appreciation and Recommendation”!

Deanna lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is a very experienced professional in the graphic design, advertising, copy, marketing publishing industry. Deanna is an active member of the Daily Marketing Coach organized by Ann Sieg, industry leader for Attraction Marketing including the Renegade Marketing Team and The Inner Circle.

Marketing Pro
Deanna Evertt

I invite you to visit Deanna Evertt’s  EverBetter Marketing website at

http://www.everbettermarketing.com/

My reasons for giving this testimonial are directly related to a recent professional introduction to Deanna at the private Daily Marketing Coach Facebook Page. The scenario goes like this…Edwin Cabrera, also of the Daily Marketing Coach…and a personal mentor to me on my marketing system…recommended that I write a book on one of my key projects on which I have a great deal of passion. I began writing the book and designed the cover given the tools and experience I have as a early career mechanical designer. Enter Deanna Evertt…who saw my book cover design on The Daily Marketing Coach. For many years Deanna has designed book covers and book content for many brick and mortar companies. She is exceptionally talented in “book cover design” and all aspects of publishing a new book.

After seeing my initial book cover design on the DMC FB Page, Deanna contacted me proposing that we work together on the book project and that she would design a new book cover and help me to format the interior copy of the book to prepare it for the publishing process. We reached a working agreement at that time and in my enthusiasm I expected to complete and have the book published within two weeks. I had elected to self publish the book using Amazon and their self-publishing company CreateSpace. I had never written a book before, much less published one, so you can imagine how challenging this exercise turned out to be.

After completing the book and cover design for the first time and having it ready for submission to Amazon/CreateSpace for publishing, the approvals for some aspects of the book did not come through and as a result the book needed to be rewritten. I live in Orlando, Florida and Deanna lives in British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, and my mentor Edwin Cabrera lives in Manassas, Virginia. Even though the significant geographic separation of each of us we were able to jointly collaborate on the design of the book. I rewrote the book, Edwin gave his editor approval comments, and Deanna redesigned the cover as well as formatted, proofed and contributed to the interior pages…and within three weeks  the book has now been published for international distribution on 7/20/2013… on both CreateSpace which publishes paperback versions and Amazon Kindle KDP which provides the electronic E-Book versions. Interestingly there are different database criteria for each of these publications

I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Deanna and Edwin for their major contributions on the creation, design and publication of my first book! This recommendation is intended to inform those interested in book design and publication that I highly recommend Deanna Evertt for any book that you may consider! She is highly professional, competent and talented. I will call upon her for any future book that I write and publish.

Further, Edwin Cabrera has been so very instrumental in guiding me up the ladder of personal development as a Marketing Trainer…and I am grateful to him as well!

Thank you very much Deanna!!!                     And Edwin!!!

They both received credit in the book foreword. And by the way, this book shares

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.

Could multiple income streams bring you financial independence?

Multiple Income Streams
Live Your Dreams!

 

 

 

 

 

Could multiple income streams bring you financial independence?

 

First let me explain what I mean by multiple income streams. Let’s say that you are employed and for example that your employer pays you weekly with a pay check of $700 take home pay. This would be your first income stream. Now suppose that with your spare time someone could show you how you could develop three more extra streams of income over time and that you get paid twice each month for each of those income streams. Over time, these three extra income streams have the potential to grow. On the other hand, your employer is under extreme government regulation and pressures and may have to cut your work week to less than 30 hours or to lay you off in order to get his number of employees under 50 to avoid health care cost penalties. So the bottom line is that your $700 weekly net income is at some risk where if you had three extra income streams you have the opportunity of growing them, and under a worst case scenario, you could fall back on those extra streams to help you pay for your basic needs. Who knows, you may be able to develop your extra income streams to exceed that of your employment income. How great would that be? What could you do then? Personally, I call it the first major step in achieving financial independence!

Or you could be totally without any income right now and need to get started earning money fast…in that case you need to call me as soon as you finish reading this…

Diversification of Income
Multiple Income Streams

Let’s say the first of these three extra income streams is that of representing a product or service that many people need and want and some of those that you tell about it elect to buy the product and you can within a reasonable time make an average of $500 per month. The second income stream is also that of representing another related product or service that many people need and want and some of those that you tell about it elect to buy the product and you can make on average $400 per month.  This is the same approach as the first extra income stream.

Income Streams
Diversification of Income

Now for the third income stream you decide that you want to create a 24/7 internet business that works for you while you are away. Let’s say that this third income stream provides you with an Attraction  Marketing system that shows you how to construct a Blog on which you could build a presence, develop a following, and offer something of value to customers that shares your unique knowledge and expertise.  Let’s say after six months you are realizing an income of some $1,500 per month from the results of your marketing plan and your Blog and related marketing efforts. Of course six months is a just a beginning and opens up more doors of opportunity. What you have accomplished is an extremely important strategy that is used in the investment of money to protect it and make it grow…something called “diversification”…in this case of your incomes. Diversification is very strategic and important.

The More The Better!
How Many Is Enough?

Overall, this is a proven, successful strategy for you to achieve financial independence… by developing multiple income streams. Personally, I have developed an identical plan and currently enjoy the benefits of multiple income streams. The challenge to you is that you must decide that you want to do this…results do not happen overnight…you are beginning your own business…no one can tell you how long it will take for you to generate good income streams. The best option that you have is to decide to get started and be committed to  your success…along with the commitment to learn.

Do you have any desire to develop financial independence?  If so please email me on dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

I very much look forward to talking with you.

This is precisely why it’s refreshing to hear words of encouragement from those who have done it before-and succeeded. We spoke with entrepreneurs we admire to cull the single best bit of startup advice they could muster-and the experiences that led to it. They’re simple mottoes, to be sure, but their impact can be tremendous.

Can an Exterminator Get Leads on Social Media?

business. This month, Bug Out has gotten close to 100 leads from its Facebook Page and Twitter feed. Considering Bug Out’s Facebook Page has just around 135 fans and the brand has just 270 followers on Twitter, that’s a pretty good yield.

“If you look at our fans, they’re pretty much all realtors,” says Anne Austen-Lewis, who handles social media marketing for the Anaheim, Calif., exterminator. Realtors are a key client since getting a pest control check is a necessary step in buying a new house in California. Bug Out, a 25-year-old business (it was known as Masterpest Termite Control until a couple of years ago), already draws leads from its email lists and has a fairly well-developed SEO program.

In today’s online marketplace, building a traditional sales force or conducting expensive sales training programs should not be the first action items on your business development plan. What should be on your list instead?

Here’s another in my series where I pick a topic and connect with someone a lot smarter than me. (There’s a list of some previous installments at the end of this article.)

This time I talked to Laura Greeno, the founder of WebScout, an online marketing firm for small- to medium-businesses.

You’ve clicked them before: “5 Things Preventing You From Becoming a Billionaire,” “The Secret Video Obama Doesn’t Want You to See” and the ever-insidious “[Hot Female Celeb's] Wardrobe Malfunction.”

How To Have Fun Attracting Customers 24/7

This post is on the topic of “How To Have Fun Attracting Customers 24/7!
[color-box]
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.[/color-box]

BY Lewis Howes | March 19th, 2013

In a world where attention is currency, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to attract the eyes and ears of your target market. Not only are you up against larger companies with nicely funded marketing departments, you’re also competing with social media and a multitude of other distractions for the attention of your prospects. But that doesn’t mean your marketing efforts have to cost a ton of money or be overly dramatic in order to stand out from the crowd. Here are five creative and inexpensive ways to market your business in a digital world:

Secrets of Blogging

BY Catherine Clifford July 10, 2013

Raising money for your business? Shout it from the rooftops. For the first time, it’s allowed.The Securities and Exchange Commission today voted four to one that it will overturn the ban on publicly advertising that your company is raising money, what’s called “general solicitation.” By voting to lift the ban on general solicitation, the Commission has essentially made it legal for private companies to tell anyone that they are raising money, which was previously illegal.

Better Blog Writing: Attract Clients,
Make Sure Your Posts Get Read!

Written by Patsi Krakoff in About Blogs, Attracting Clients, Content Marketing

You want to Engage your Blog Readers and encourage them to subscribe to your blog and become regular visitors. Ideally, you want to attract a large number of hungry customers who are interested in partaking of this written food for the soul, but how can you rise above the constant online buzz to attract attention to your blog post?

The Internet may be constantly chirping with activity, but that doesn’t mean that all content is worthy of users’ attention in the same manner. According to Neilson.com, there were 181 million blogs around the world at the end of 2011. (In 2006, there were 36 million in existence.)

How to Control the Fear of Starting a Small Business

Fear of Starting
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%).

Ty Tribble  - Posted on 09 August 2012.

Just got a note from David Wood about his company “Empower Network” getting shut down on Facebook.

Now I’m sure Empower Network will be fine and if anyone can figure out a way around the problem, it’s the shirtless mad scientist, David Wood.

The Empower news made me think about one of the biggest issues people face in the industry today…

Mainstream Media News

This is about “News today! Important news! Worthwhile news! Meaningful news! News that every well-informed person should know about…

Keeping up to date with the news is essential to me…how about you?

It is amazing where we must go now to get the best news of the day…tonight I went to www.Popurls.com and to www.alltop.com which are known in the blogging industry as two of the top blogging sites to provide the very best and most accurate  news reporting.  I highly recommend these sites to you in case you would like to do a 10 minute scan of all their topics and select what is the most interesting for you to read!

There are many great sources of news nowadays…and with the departure of the major tv and newspaper media to align with political agendas rather than providing us with the real objective news…we now have immediate and accurate news from a wonderful variety of sources. Personally I enjoy a variety of fair and balanced tv news, many talk show hosts, high quality blogs, and selected internet major media sources like Forbes and Entrepreneur and the like.  Here are the most interesting stories in my opinion for today…

SpicyBrownMustard sends in a fascinating data visualization at Zeit Online showing what information about a person’s life can be gleaned from cellphone metadata. Quoting: “Green party politician Malte Spitz sued to have German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom hand over six months of his phone data that he then made available to ZEIT ONLINE. We combined this geolocation data with information relating to his life as a politician, such as Twitter feeds, blog entries and websites, all of which is all freely available on the internet.

Will Content Marketing Improve Decision Making?

Attraction Marketing
Content/Attraction Marketing

And now you are saying what in the world is he talking about? “Will Content Marketing Improve Decision Making”? Ok,  stay with me now because it is important that you understand what this means to you…especially if you are someone thinking about running a business…however it applies to moms, dads and kids as well…of any age!

The topic today may sound a bit lofty however when you look at trends today it is hard to find topics that are more appealing than 1) making good decisions, 2) content marketing which is the same as attraction marketing, education marketing and inbound marketing, and 3) the growing awareness that we need Wills, Living Wills, Health Care Power of Attorney documents and in some cases Trust documents. This may sound surprising as our news media is far from these topics, however when you check today’s trends these are very high on the list.  And so you say…so what?

Marketing Concepts
Law of Attraction

Let me give an example as to why this is important to all of us. Yesterday I wrote a blog post entitled Save Money On Vital Personal Needs!For anyone that read it the post was about  1) saving a lot of money on estate planning documents including Wills, Living Wills and Health Care POA documents , 2) protecting against the loss of significant money in the event of traffic citations or accidents by parents or children, and 3) for saving a lot of money on learning and implementing a marketing system on content/attraction marketing just in case you may have or are going to start a business.  The potential value of these three topics is more than $100,000 for the average American family and easily can be more than a $1,000,000. This is not pocket change we are talking about. Why did I write about these topics?…because I researched what the American people are talking about willandtestatmentnow and these topics are important to them. So my first point to make with you is that by your taking the time to read the content/attraction marketing post you learned about very valuable steps that you could take to create, manage and protect your financial independence. The second point I would like to make with you is that by reading that post, you now know more than 50% of the population about these three topics, what they are worth, and how you can put them to work for you for your benefit. The key word here is that you are now aware where you were not aware before. What is that worth to you? The third point is that with the information on that post if you took the time you could learn the detailed descriptions of what those solutions consisted of, how much they cost, and how much potentially they could save you. Would you typically get this much information in your usual decision processes? How? Listen to a salesperson?autoinsurance Now you have a very intelligent way to evaluate options. And you know what…you did all of this learning in the nice comfort of your own home or place where-ever you were, and there was no presentation by anyone in a coffee shop or your dining room table, and it was quick and efficient, and you could stop and take care of something else if you needed to do so. So does any of this make sense to you? Do you begin to get a better grasp of why the power of the internet is bringing ways for us to be more efficient, more effective and to help us to make better decisions? And then we can take that time that we saved and learn about the decision-making process. So why not apply now what you learned to gain the benefits? There are several opportunities on this page for you to take action!

Why not now?
