The average person today, practically lives for the weekend. With demanding jobs, financial burdens, and a fast paced lifestyle, it’s becoming more and more difficult to actually stop, and have time to smell the roses.
Most people anxiously anticipate the weekend, so they can do nothing more, than just rest.
In my opinion, that’s not living a life, that is merely existing. I can almost guarantee, that if you had the opportunity to do something else, to do something more with your life…you would.
And for a brief second, you may even imagine what that ‘something more’ is for you, what it could do for you…but only for a moment. Because the harsh reality is, the bills need to be paid, and your dream just won’t cut it…
If you’ve been in business any length of time, you know in order to grow, you have got to develop the skill of prospecting. There is just no way around it. Business is all about servicing the needs of people. Without people, there is no business.
So, what can you do when you are afraid, shy or even a little embarrassed about exposing people to your product or opportunity?
You just do it!
Really. ACTION TRUMPS FEAR every time!
Now, that’s probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but it’s the simple truth. Like it or not, if you want the life freedom lifestyle that probably motivated you to start your business in the first place, you’ve got to learn how to overcome the fear of prospecting.
Working from home can be a huge adjustment for anyone. Now, when you work at home, add a couple of kids to the mix, PLUS summer vacation, feeling overwhelmed becomes an understatement.
Being a mom of 7, with six of them at home…my sanity has just about been lost, since school let out a couple of weeks ago. My “routine” has changed, along with my daily work schedule.
I’m sure if you are a work at home mom, you can totally understand!
Get Your Priorities In Order…
I know for many of us mom entrepreneurs, family comes before business. I also know, a lot of work at home moms actually slow down or, put their business on “hold” entirely, during the summer months. Though I never recommend anyone slow down in business, everyone has to do what works for them.
We had such a blast on our Google Hangout! I had the privilege to chat it up with a few of my business partners, and WOWMovement leaders. We shared our personal stories, a few testimonies and how we are enjoying our journey of impacting the health and wealth of individuals and families, because we said YES, to Total Life Changes!
Everybody wants to get online and start making money fast. There is this crazy perception that just because you announce on Facebook that you started a new business, you are automatically entitled to become an overnight success story…SIKE!
Despite what you’ve heard, what you’ve seen, or choose to believe, making money online takes work.
That means before you actually start making the life changing income you are dreaming of, you’ve got to learn how to make money.
Don’t be fooled into believing ‘copy & paste’ methods work, or are going to allow you to build a sustainable business. Networking and connecting with new people is ONE required skill you must learn.
Another vital skill you need to achieve your online income goals, is Marketing.
How many passionate entrepreneurs do you know, who love what they do, but are still struggling financially? How many do you see, selling themselves short, doing everything under the sun trying to make a buck?
It really doesn’t have to be that way. Clearly, there are many entrepreneurs who are proof of that. You shouldn’t have to feel like following your dreams and passion for life freedom, is hard work.
In early 2014, I was in that same situation.
Struggling financially, stressing, burnt out, slaving away trading hours for dollars as a virtual assistant and consultant.
Over the past few months, many of my email subscribers and followers have reached out to ask me, why I chose Total Life Changes. I’ve also been asked, what is it about this particular company, that has myself, along with so many others, so excited..
To be completely honest, I wasn’t looking for a business to join. In fact, I ignored the first offer when it was presented to me.
However, a few months later…I was given another chance to make the decision.
In this post, I will do my best to explain from my point of view, and personal experience.
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.
