You know what drives me crazy?
Being an entrepreneur, and still having people tell you how to be an entrepreneur. I get it though…if you’ve found a successful way to do business, you want to share that (or sell it), to others on the same pursuit.
The problem I have is when people try to convince you that their way of “being an entrepreneur”, is the right way, or the only way to achieve success.
Entrepreneurship is FREEDOM…many of us left corporate positions, or chose this path so we could express ourselves the way we know how, the way that is natural to us, the way we feel most comfortable.
Did you start or launch a business online and are now ready to start making money?
Have you been wondering how to get customers online without paying for advertising?
Is it even possible?
The answer is yes, it’s possible (anything is possible…right?)
If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you started on a shoestring budget and probably have little to no money for marketing or advertising. You also know that where there is a will, there is a way…and that way is what I’m going to share with you in this post.

Every now and then, I feel compelled to express myself a little more direct, than normal. This is one of those times. You can call this a ‘rant’ post…but, I’ve got to get this out…
I’m an entrepreneur. Lots of people are entrepreneurs. BUT…there are some people who claim to be entrepreneurs, while their actions show a very different reality. Now, I’m not judging…just observing the mindset and behaviors of the self-proclaimed entrepreneurs, who really need to just hang it up and realize, it’s time to quit.
Entrepreneurs Work for Themselves
Either we are self-employed, or an independent contractor/business owner, whose daily business duties and tasks, are set by us. We answer to no one. When an issue arises, it is our own responsibility to assess the situation, and find a solution.
Getting your business started on the internet does not have to be difficult. The reason why most people struggle with getting set up online is because they are confused by all the different information available.
Some experts say you need a blog, others say you don’t, and should have a capture page instead. Then, there are some who recommend you use both. Makes you wonder, what to do…what to do?
Of course, each one has its benefits when it comes to your online marketing strategy. It’s just knowing when to select the one that is appropriate, and most effective with helping you achieve your desired results.

When you are just getting started in the home based business industry, there seems to be a lot you must learn. From getting things set up, getting educated on your products, and to learning a new system, it can feel overwhelming before you even begin. The good news is however, you don’t have to learn everything all at once, in order to start building your business.
Even so, for some reason, most individuals believe they must “know-it-all”, prior to even reaching out to their first prospect. Big mistake…
Why that is a mistake is because, you are never going to know everything. Plus, what works for some, does not work for all. The best way to assure success is to just get started. We all learn as we go. When something we try doesn’t work, we fix it or do something else.

There is always some kind of new challenge emerging online these days, but one that I’m particularly fond of is the 5 in 5 challenge. Have you heard of it yet?
If not, you will soon. Consider this your introduction to a challenge that is literally, changing peoples lives, from the inside out. It is giving people hope again, as they are experiencing amazing results.
If you are here reading this post, it’s more than likely you are a woman and/or mom entrepreneur. We know how important it is to take care of ourselves and our health so we can care for our families. However, in our busy lives, it is something we often, yet unintentionally, neglect.
Nowadays, everywhere you look online, someone is talking about “living a lifestyle”.
An Entrepreneur Lifestyle.
A Simple Lifestyle.
A Laptop Lifestyle.
A Life Freedom Lifestyle…
(yea, that one is mine)
The list goes on, am I right?
But, when you hear those lifestyles, or see it…you get a certain feeling inside. Those particular lifestyles are attractive to people. What makes them so attractive is the fact that people actually WANT to live them.
People who enjoy spending time on their laptop (maybe more than the average person), are drawn to the term, and can actually envision themselves – living this lifestyle. Why? Because it resonates with them. They feel connected to the idea and can relate to what it means.
