Profit with a Plan!

Many times business owners want to look at outside circumstances as the blame for low sales. They say, “the economy is slow” or “people aren’t spending like they used to”. These statements are really just excuses. The truth is that there is no shortage of money in the world. People may be more selective on who they spend their money with, but they have NOT stopped spending. So why isn’t your business bringing in the big bucks? Let’s look closer to home…If you’re not profiting

Is That “Open Door”from God?

Just because an opportunity presents itself, and it looks appealing, doesn’t necessarily mean it is from God. And likewise, just because an open door looks a little uncertain, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t walk through it. The key is knowing how to discern if an opportunity is really an open door from God.

5 MYTHS OF ENTREPRENUERSHIP

5 MYTHS OF ENTREPRENUERSHIP Statistics show that at least 50% of new startups fail within five years, and many of the survivors eventually fail. If you don’t want to be part of these statistics, consider all the alternatives to starting your own business, especially if you have one of the following perspectives: 1      “I’m tired of working hard and being so stressed all the time.” Starting and growing a business is more work and more stress than any employee role should be.

22K IN 30 DAYS

22K IN 30 DAYS It’s the last days of May and summer fun is on the way. $22K in 30 days has been chanting in my head since yesterday. I am amazingly proud, ready to share my knowledge and amazed.

The 6 Business Assets that are More Important than Your Business Plan

The 6 Business Assets that are More Important than Your Business Plan One of the most popular questions I get asked whenever I talk about online business building is always about business plans.

How to Make a Good First Impression with Your Brand

How to Make a Good First Impression with Your Brand The first impression is usually the last impression. The first time someone is exposed to your brand is important because it is right then and there that their opinion of your brand is formed.  You don’t often have another chance to win someone over, and that is why you should put a little thought into how your brand is perceived at first sight. It’s even better when you make sure that the first experience a new customer or

Creating Your Elevator Speech

Sometimes after you’ve gotten clear on what it is you want to do, you forget that one day you may just have to explain it to someone.  Let’s face it, if you want to be an entrepreneur and be profitable you must know how to present your value.  You want to be able to explain who you are, what you do, and why it’s valuable in a way that is clear and confident. There are many people that are good at what they do, but not so much at explaining it in a way that makes others want t

Top 5 Characteristics of Successful Business Owners!

Define Success in Your Own Terms It is SO easy to let others – well intentioned others – define success for you.  Think about it.  Your parents, your spouse/partner, your children, and the people who work for you, your friends – they all try to define success for you. Women are sensitive to social pressures, and it is so easy to fall into the trap of embracing the existing definitions of success.  One of the last frontiers for women is to recognize that their personal definit

What I would observe this particular evening stirred an intense feeling in the pit of my stomach and spread throughout my body. What I noticed was down trees, actually – land clearing at a locally owned memorial park. More land? Expanding… a cemetery, I thought? Initially my intel
