small business network training reviews

Remember these words, “If you can shape it in your mind,
you WILL find it in your life.” That’s not maybe, not
possibly or might could. You will…PERIOD.

You see, everything you attract into your life begins in
your mind. A picture, an idea, even an impulse begin to set
events in motion.

Here are 8 basic areas that I concentrate on to assist you
in designing the life you truly desire:

B positive
B positive
#1 – Create a crystal clear VISION for your brain to focus
on. You cannot go forward looking at the past. You MUST
clearly define your VISION  you will be living someone
else’s.

#2 – Establish empowering BELIEFS. Your beliefs guide you.
They will either guide you toward or away from your vision.
Know which ones are which, eliminate those that don’t
support you and replace them with BELIEFS that do.

#3 – A championship MINDSET is critical to your success.
What about your drive? What about your desire? What about
when fatigue sets in? Your MINDSET must be conditioned just
as a champion athlete hones his or her bod’y. Without it,
the road is long, slow and perilous.

#4 – COMMUNICATIONS is an area focused on by many. It is
truly important to develop the skills to COMMUNICATE with
others quickly and effectively. However, let-us not ignore
an area equally important if not more so. How you
COMMUNICATE with yourself. WHAT you say and HOW you say
what you say have a tremendous impact on your performance.

#5 – KNOWLEDGE is the next step. Old saying, “KNOWLEDGE is
power!” WRONG! KNOWLEDGE in ACTION is power! Even better is
USEFUL KNOWLEDGE in action is power. Make sure what you’re
putting in your brain is worthwhile.

The Right Blend

#6LEADERSHIP is influence. Do you have influence? YES?
Then you’re a leader. Take that role seriously. Management
is maintaining the status quo and the world is full of
people that want to keep things as they are. Don’t be one
of them.

#7 – ACTIVITY puts us on the map. Without action our dreams
will nev’er materialize to reality. Knowledge without action
is powerless. It’s the ingredient that ensures results. The
world loves to watch those who make things happen and it
rewards them for doing so. Show up, Suit up & Step up!

#8 – The word CONTRIBUTION brings many pictures. Most view
it as donations to their church etc. That’s part of it. It
is also the VALUE that you bring to the table. What kind of
value are you bringing to the table? Your CONTRIBUTION of
becoming all that you are designed to be can change lives.


   I’ll end with several words:

The first word is DISGUST. You may not equate the word
“disgust” with positive action, yet properly channeled,
disgust can change your life. If you feel disgust you may
be ready to throw down the gauntlet and say, “ENOUGH IS
ENOUGH!”

The second word is DECISION. Maybe you’ve reached that
proverbial “Fork in The Road”. I don’t have much advice to
give you about making a decision except this; Whatever you
do, don’t camp at the fork in the road. Decide, it’s better
to make a wrong decision than not to make one at all.

Next is DESIRE. Two things about desire. #-1 it comes from
the inside, not the outside. #2 it can be triggered by
outside forces. It can be a song, a movie, a conversation,
even a book.

Any thing can trigger that inner mechanism that makes you
say, “I want it n-ow!”

Resolve says I will. Do or Die. It means promising yourself
you’ll nev’er give up. I will UNTIL.

At a minimum, you will make a decision about the
information just provided to you. If anything in the
information above has created a spark in you, TAKE ACTION.
The choice is uniquely yours.

SBA

SBA has established numerical definitions of small businesses, or “size standards,” for all for-profit industries. Size standards represent the largest size that a business (including its subsidiaries and affiliates) may be to remain classified as a small business concern. In determining what constitutes a small business, the definition will vary to reflect industry differences. These size standards are used to determine eligibility for SBA’s financial assistance and to its other programs, as well as to Federal government procurement programs designed to help small businesses. Also, the Small Business Act states that unless specifically authorized by statute, no other Federal department or agency may prescribe a size standard for categorizing a business concern as a small business concern, unless such proposed size standard meets certain criteria and is approved by the Administrator of SBA.

Classifying a business as small or large can impact its ability to qualify for financing, certification and potential contracts. Determining the difference between the definition of a small business and a large business depends on a number of factors, including the type of business, number of employees and annual receipts, each calculated over various periods of time.

Fortune 500

Small firms are better communicators and know their customers better.

Small businesses – those with 500 employees or less – remain an essential piston of America’s economic growth. After the number of startups dropped to record lows in 2009,they bounced back 12% in 2011.  Small businesses accounted for 42% of US private sector payroll in 2012 and 63% of new jobs, according to the Small Business Administration. And as business professors, we three have recently watched entrepreneurship programs sprout like dandelions in American business schools, partly in response to students who no longer aspire to an organization-man (or woman) career.

Despite this surge in interest, running a small business remains a bumpy road. About 10% to 12% of small businesses close each year and there’s only a 50/50 chance a new small business will survive to see its fifth birthday. As the success of behemoths like Google GOOG 0.73% , Wal-Mart WMT 0.10% and Amazon AMZN 0.11% shows scale confers many advantages in business. Which should prompt every small businessperson to ask: How can I compete with the big boys in my industry?

What does all this data Really mean?

We observed that small businesses thrive by taking on activities that big businesses aren’t good at. This  can sometimes be at time a double-edged sword. Big firms have groups of salesmen, massive marketing budgets and loads of leverage at the bargaining table and ease of accessibility to budgets. Having sales people makes small business activities easier and can happen faster. Big companies dominate the market because of consistent massive exposure  and brand recognition ~ Walmarts, McDonalds,Amazons of the world, that are familiar in the minds of the most consumers

Now for the Good News!

If  the SIZE does matter in the business world what are some of the advantages the smaller/ small biz have over the Google, Amazons and  Walmarts. (Please Leave a comment below)Some of the benefits that I see are:

  • Ease to market with product launch.
  • Less red tape
  • Able to quickly adapt to changing Market trends.
  • Able to connect to the consumers and be a bit more personable.
  • Less employees
  • Small businesses  get the Tax advantages like Big business.

In my humble opinion as a small and  home based business owner we have a lot of upside to what we do as well. All we have to do as a small businesses is to find our niche(s) and claim our market share. Finding your market share may be the first step.The next step would be maintain and grow that share. Remember at one point and there was no Google, Amazon or Walmart. Maybe your small business will lead this world into next era or evolution and change the world. A benefit of a   small business is to be able to network locally within the neighborhoods and communities.

Get as much Online Training  and support as possible.  As a small business we have got to stick together and support each other as much as possible. Your market is calling you.

I thought this book might be of  service to you. If you really want learn about online prosperity this will be a good place to start. It will allow you benefit of someone else’s experience. I have spent a lot of tim learning about prosperity. I have in my tons of books and cd’s  on  subjects.  For less than  $100.00 and few hours of you time this could take years off you learning curve?

Principles of Learning.

Do you like learning new things?

yes we can
yes we can.

What motivates you to take on a challenge and learn something new. Is it being fed up with your  current situation? Usually that  does it for me. When I look at the many issues  that concern me financially and spiritually, I get fired up for change. I know that if nothing changes, nothing changes. Let’s look at finances. No matter who you are or where you live you need money to live.We will need  money to do most things, ie… food, shelter and clothing. I know money does not solve all problems it just pays for everything(food, shelter and clothing). Most earn money by trading their time for money. What if their was another way to earn money. What if their are other systems that are at our disposal. Are their Principles of learning how to make/earn money? Yes there are!!

start from where you're at!
start from where you’re at!

Let’s look at two ways to earn income.Linear and Residual.Linear income is directly related to the number of hours you work. If you work 40 hours, you get paid for 40 hours of work. Residual Income: Unlike a paycheck from a job, when you develop a “residual income” you don’t have to start from zero every week, or every month. It has been my experience that most, around 95%, have been taught and live by creating income using the Linear method. In my humble opinion  most would think that Linear is easier than Residual. Why you asked? I will tell why. Most have been only taught the one method. If you are only taught one method then that is the only method you know , at that point, that ever exist. The other half of this equation  is that everyone you know has been taught this same method of earning money via the Linear income method. Residual income method on the other the other hand, not so lucky with the masses. The residual income method not so lucky because of the lack of understanding how this method works. Be honest with yourself and ask yourself one question. If you knew nothing about either method which one sounds like it makes the most sense to you? Is it Linear or is it Residual?

Which path will you choose or can you do both?
Which path will you choose or can you do both?

On a recent conference call the presenter made a very interesting point. He shared that those that have the desire and commitment to unlearn and relearn in this new economy we have will have the greatest chances of personal  success and survival.

True Prosperity Online for All?

What comes to mind when you think Online and Prosperity?

Tell me, what came to your mind when you read the title of this post. Was it one of these thoughts:Online Prosperity6

  • “Here we go again” or ” Don’t know what true prosperity online is all about”.
  • “I am not sure what this really means”
  • “The last time I tried one of these online things, it didn’t turn out so well” (If you have your own comments  please post below)

No such thing as a shortcut to Success.

get rich qk3

Let me clear the air before I get started. This post will not be like anything you have ever read. It’s not be about any hype or anything that has to do with getting rich quickly. If you are reading this article you probably know this already. You probably have tried a few things in your time as a  Internet Marketer Guru person. You may  even have a down line of 10 to 15,000 people. You may be a beginner, first time winner or a seasoned veteran that has seen and done it all. We are all the same.We all have goals and aspirations that we would like to accomplish via the internet while having an Online presence. At the beginning of this post I asked ” Is there True Prosperity for All!! And yes it is via the 4 keys of: Online Prosperity4

Time, Commitment,Consistency and Results.

Time, Commitment, Consistency and Results.

Time(Things I Must Experience). Before we get started I know some of you will say “I don’t have the time ” or “I am too busy”. If you are part of the Online community and have been fortunate enough join a great company like Wealthy Affiliate, Congrats!  No matter what part of the world you are from we all  have a few things in common. One of the things we have in common is TIME. We all get 24 hours per day and have 7 days per week. Wouldn’t you agree?  That 24 hours per day can be spent any way you want! Let me share some examples of what I am talking about. If you take 24 hours per day and multiply that by 7 days per week you will have 168 hours per week or if you do minute by minute it breaks down to 1440 minutes per day or 10080 minutes per week. For the sake of time and sanity let’s look at how many of us will spend our time on a weekly basis (this is just an estimate, it may be less or more time spent for you on each item):

  • 40 hour work week.
  • 56 hours of sleep per week(8 hours a day x 7 days per week)
  • 10 hours per week getting back and forth to work.
  • 10 hours per week family time.
  • 5 hours per week getting dressed or undressed for work.
  • 10 hours per week TV time.
  • 10 hours per week if going back to school.
  • 10 hours per week miscellaneous time hanging with friends or working out at the gym or park.
  • 5 hours per week Social Media time

If my math is correct that’s a total of 146 hours that can be accounted for in this example. Remember we have 168 hours per week. If you subtract 146 hours from 168 hours you still have 22 hours left. Even if you add another 10 hours to your work week and work 50 hours per week you would still have 12 hours of time unaccounted for. If you would really like to obtain “True Online Prosperity” is time really a deterrent in achieving that goal?

Commitment: the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or activity.

Could this be the deal breaker in achieving true online prosperity?  My own experience has shown that we must have commitment to achieve pretty much anything in life we want like marriage, family, work and school. No matter what we do we must have commitment. When I first started in the online community I was overwhelmed by a few great presentations. I thought all I had to do was get a website and send out some emails and I thought I would be set for life. Little did I know this was only the beginning? I didn’t know that I needed traffic, sales funnel, capture pages and so much more. I was motivated by the money. I thought I could make a lot of money in a short amount of time. After the euphoria of having a website and an email address wore off I soon realized one clear fact. I realized I had no real commitment to building a business. I realized that it was going to take a true commitment and a real plan to achieve any goal or purpose I have in life.  What is your level of commitment to achieve your goal or cause?

Consistency.

With time and commitment you also need to be consistent with your efforts. Being consistent with your efforts allows you to gain some momentum in your process. Your process can be anything from starting a business to building a house. Consistency in the online community is no different. When you remain consistent some wonderful things can start to happen. You will begin feel like you could do this all day and never get tired or bored. Anytime we are consistent others notice as well. They admire your work ethic and how you get things done. Since I have been more consistent with my efforts I have grown more confident and feel better about what I am doing within the online community. If you have anything that you need to get done but don’t like doing, try to figure out a way to break the project down into smaller pieces. For example I don’t like mowing my yard. I used to try and mow the entire yard in one day. This project would take me an hour and a half every two weeks. Not a lot of time I know, but remember, I don’t like doing this. So instead of spending an hour and a half every two weeks I decided to spend, two back to days, 45 minutes each day. Doing my lawn like this allowed me to remain consistent and effective.  With enough Time, Commitment and Consistency you and I will be able to achieve all types of prosperity.

Results.

What type of results are looking for when it comes to you personally, financially, spiritually or in life as a whole. Do you want enough results to say to everyone I tried or are you willing to make obtaining your results a lifelong passion. No matter what we do we are evaluating the type of results we are getting all the time. Since we are talking about True Online Prosperity what results do feel you feel would be the most beneficial? I would think the most beneficial result would be money. But what if  you had more than enough money and you just wanted to help people succeed online ? Or what if you had some real health challenges and just wanted to connect with other people who are in similar situations? In my humble opinion no matter what we are doing we are all looking for results. Results, you see, will take Time, Commitment and Consistency.  If you are not willing to put in the work you should not be disappointed with results. Results matter and so do you!!!

Thanks and feel free to comment below.

 

 

 

The Passion Of The Post!!!

What are you passionate about? If you don’t have a passion , I’ll share mines with you.  The dictionary describes a passion as” a strong and barely controllable emotion“. As I write this post a lot things pop into my head.The ones I have enjoyed the most are music, sports and food.

As a kid growing up in Georgia my first love musically was the drums. I learned how to play the snare drum, tenor drum and percussion in High School. Another fun memory I had as a youngster was with my Uncle Ted and my cousin Michael.  Uncle Ted played the Electric Guitar, Michael plyed the Saxophone and I played  my snare drum. At least once or twice a week we would  sit on Uncle Ted’s porch and play music until we got tired or it got too dark. Not sure what we sounded like but I can say for sure how I felt and that was awesome! After that I stopped playing and started listening to other artist.

MUSIC!At one point in my life I would buy an album/vinyl

Album/Vinyl.
Album/Vinyl.

once a week so that I would have  the latest and greatest that played on the radio at that time. To date I don’t have one album/vinyl to play. How could I have been so  passionate about it and now nothing.  To date no album/vinyl but I still love the sound of music.Gospel, R&B,Soul, Jazz, Regae, Rock and Roll, Some New Artist, Blues, Country and Western,Older Artist,Salsa and some Rap music.

sportsSports!!!!

In between all the music was sports. As a big  stocky little kid growing up in Georgia we played Football,Tennis,Basketball,Baseball, Softball,Volleyball, Table Tennis and Pool. The sport that I like the most to watch is football. The sport I like to play is Basketball. I remember wearing my favorite sneakers ” Chuck Taylor High Tops”. You haven’t played basketball until you have played on dirt. Dusty, but a lot of fun.  In high school I played football for one semester. Being one of eight children my focus from my parents was on academics and getting a good job. After high school I started liking basketball a lot. As a young adult I would play every chance I got. After work and on the weekends. I played in my 20’s, 30’s , 40’s and occasionally in my 50’s.  Yes even in my fifties.It is not so much the workout I get from playing the game, it’s the after the game talk I have with youngsters and  one or two guys my age occasionally.  I like playing outside. Most of the guys say that playing inside in a gym is better for your back and knees and they are absolutely right! But for me, I just like the way I feel sitting in the shade, drinking water and watching others have fun. That to me never gets old.

Foodfoods♥Food foods2Food♥

 

What’s more important than Sports or Music ???….. you guessed it FOOD!! My first job in High School was a Bust Boy at a local restaurant called Shoney’s Big Boy. After being a Bust Boy and a Dish Washer I later became a Short Order Cook. Cooking everything from Hamburgers to Chicken fingers.  My next level of experience in Food Industry was that of a Bread Baker.  I didn’t start out as Bread Baker I started out as laborer. After becoming  a laborer  for a while I  learned how to fry Donuts. I was the Original Dunkin Donuts -Glazed, Cinnamon and Chocolate with a cup of coffee! After frying and filling several thousand donuts I then became a Bread Baker. I say bread Baker ,but I made a lot more than bread. I made Breads, Rolls, Muffins and all types of danishes like Cheese, Cinnamon and Raisin. After many years in the Baking industry I decided  to work in Corporate America  and started out as a Lab Technician. I worked on some brands you may have heard of before. Hellmann’s Mayo, Skippy Peanut Butter and Lipton Tea.

In 2010 I retired from Corporate to start my own business as an Independent Contractor in the Home Based Business Industry. With so many years of experience, many of my Friends and Family asked me why I didn’t open a bakery here in Georgia. I never looked at my experience in the  Food Industry as a  Passion. I looked at the Food Industry as my Job and nothing more.

Since I had the opportunity to step away from the Bread Baking and Mayo making I can honestly say I now enjoy Cooking and Baking . It gives me great JOY to create something  and have people say how much they liked it.  I also found that using my hands to create a food is very relaxing and spiritual. It is an art.

Thanks and Please Comment!!!!!!

Tomkatt’s Perspective

pplimages

Methods may change but principles never do. I heard this quote/phrase a long time ago. I agree with this phrase because of what I have experienced in my adult lifetime. I will share with you some of methods I was exposed to:
Definition of a Method- a particular form of procedure for accomplishing or approaching something, especially a systematic or established one.
1) Go to school and get good grades.
2) Go to college or go into the Military.
3) Find a good paying job with benefits.
4) Get married. If you are a man before you are 40 years old. If you are a woman before you are 30 years old.
5) Get a house.
6) Have a child or children.
7) Work for a Fortune 500 company for 40 or 50 years.
7) Retire at 65 or 70 years old.
Those of us that were able to complete all seven steps, for most part , probably had a pretty good life.

The Principles I have used in my Life.
Definition of Principles-a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.
1) Law of Gravity
2) Law of attraction
3) What goes up must come down
4) Procreation
5) The young will eventually get old
6) Only 24 hours in one day
7) Money is only a result of what we have done or what will do.

It’s funny how so many people, around 95%, end up in the same boat personally and financially. Do you think that is by choice or by chance?  If that is the case for the ninety-five percentile what are 5% doing that the rest are not doing. I can’t say for sure but I can say for certain, they are not working for the company because they own the company. They, the 5% , know also that Profits are better than wages.

In my humble opinion if you follow certain Principles  you can accomplish almost anything in life you really want. For instance  prior to  writing the content for this page I made a conscious decision to work on this project every day until I see the results I am looking for. In the past when I reached a certain point I would either put project on hold, usually never to return. You maybe  asking yourself why? Why would someone pay money  and stop before they get  the results they want. In most cases we based our decision solely on a monetary  need instead of being able to help or serve others. I have been working from home since 2010. I have spent so much money attempting to make money. The principle I have learned is that it is better to be in a system,  like Wealthy Affiliate, than it is to spend money to try to make money. I have always heard these two expressions:

” Time is Money”  and “It takes Money to make Money”.

So I answer me  this? Do you like the methods you are currently using? Are they giving you the results you are looking for? Have you looked at all the cause and results you are currently getting?

Please share your comments!!!

Methods are Many and Principles are few?

Methods may change but principles never do. I heard this quote/phrase a long time ago. I am not sure who came up with this phrase or quote, but I can tell you this… I do agree with this phrase. I agree with this phrase because of what I have experienced in my adult lifetime of working for someone else and working for myself. I will share with you some of methods I was exposed to
