When we are comfortable, we become too content.
I was motivated to share my thoughts after I saw this post on Facebook. I had to share it. It really made me stop and think because this is something I’ve realized for some time, but it was the way it was said that really hit me.
It made me think of all the people who search and search for an opportunity to create financial freedom for themselves. Most never get started. For those who actually do, the majority of them quit before they can experience success.
I used to wonder why…but I now realize they are brainwashed.
It blows my mind how much hate the network marketing industry gets, despite how long it’s been around. But just like entrepreneurship, there are a few reasons why network marketing is not for most people.
The main one is most people aren’t willing to learn the industry, or invest time into personal development. Both are very important to your success as a home based business owner.
It’s been my experience that the majority of individuals considering network marketing are simply misinformed, or have been misguided.
They start searching online and stumble upon all the crap and scams selling hope and “pipe dreams”, instead of truth.

Have you been wondering how you can earn money with affiliate marketing?
Are you interested in learning how you can really make money online without any start up costs or monthly fees?
What many people don’t realize is that if you want to be successful online (whatever you choose to do), you need a platform. I recommend you start a blog for a few reasons. Mainly because it’s a platform you own, where you can build your brand, and engage with people.
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media networks are also platforms you can use to grow your affiliate earnings. The key is knowing how to build an audience, and engage that audience, so you can sell to that audience.
Become mentally prepared for entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship is probably one of the hardest ventures you will ever experience. Simply because in essence, you kinda have to go with the flow. There is no correct protocol for how to be or do things.
The beauty of it is, you learn more about yourself the longer you remain on the journey. The truth is, the only way you can be successful, is by exercising your mental muscles on a daily basis.
You see, others will tell you all the time what you should be doing, or what you need to do. However, none of that will matter to you if you aren’t mentally prepared. It doesn’t matter how profitable they are, or how much their business is thriving because if your mind isn’t in the game, none of what they share will benefit you.
Wonder how you can get leads from Craigslist for your home business?
Most people shun the idea of posting ads on free advertising sites like Craigslist, but I have found it to be very effective for generating leads for my business and products.
However, with any strategy, you need to have some things in place to make the process simple. My main goal is to turn these cold leads into hot prospects. To do that, I want to get these prospects on the phone to have a conversation.
How I Get Home Business Leads From Craigslist
Here is my process…
Do you feel like you’re working too hard in your business?
Most of us start out the same…
We have this desire to “work from home”.
So, we end up joining a network marketing or direct sales opportunity. Or, we choose to go our own route, and launch some sort of business in the area of service.
The issue with having a service based business is usually recognized once you have a few clients, and you realize you still do not own your time.
You’ve simply transitioned from working for an employer, to working for clients.
Which is fine…if you are okay with not having real time freedom.
I really want to start a blog, but I just don’t know how.
Does that sound familiar?
Lots of entrepreneurs and small business owners want to start a blog, but most never take that leap. In this post, I’m going to share a simple online blog strategy that will help you grow your audience, increase traffic, and build your business.
Before you start blogging, it’s important you know a few things.
Blogging for business is not an ‘instant result’ type of strategy. It is however, a strategy for those who are more interested in creating a long term presence, and business sustainability.
That’s why most entrepreneurs and online business owners don’t see the value of it. But, if you understood how blogging for business could help you…
