Home Business Tips – Change, Why is it So Hard?

Human behavior never ceases to amaze me. As I build my home based business I talk to many others who are interested in what I am doing. People have told me that they want what I want; can I please show them how to make it happen. So I do, but many never take the action that they know they need to take. I have always asked myself “Why is that?” When I came across this quote it really struck a cord…We would rather be ruined than changed; We would rather die in our dread than climb the cross of the moment and let our illusions die. W.H. AudenWho do you know that has decided not to make changes and their life has ended in ruin? Or even worse,how often have you attempted to change and did not accomplish the results you wanted? We get caught in a rut and may not even notice that our daily habits are producing results we don’t want.One of the best things you can do for yourself is to help others surpass themselves, because that requires that you learn, grow and change yourself. That is what has happened to me, I have learned from many teachers over my life time and would like to share some tips that I have found to make change easier to accomplish. Remember:All progress is change, not all change is progress. John Maxwell5 tips to make Change easier…1) Take a good look at where you are right now, you need to be clear about present. If you don’t know where you are you will not be able to get to where you want to go.2) Make change an option, brainstorm come up with as many options as possible3) Make activities more important than results, you want to be sure that you are making progress not striving for perfection4) Focus only on results, without that end goal in mind (your target) you will be easily distracted.5) You must walk the talk, demonstrate commitment to your results to family, business associates and yourself.Ask yourself the questions “What is it i need to do to move my business forward? If you’re in a bad situation, don’t worry it’ll change. If you’re in a good situation, don’t worry it’ll change. ~John A. Simone, Sr.Are you using Social Media Marketing in your business yet?

Home Business Tips – What is MLM?

Multi Level Marketing (MLM) is simply a vehicle that can take you from point A to point B.  You become the marketing arm for which ever company you decide to associate with.  Just like waiting tables while I was in college and university, it was simply the means I choose to pay the bills and make ends meet.  In the case of MLM you can, through your own hard work, achieve financial freedom.Network marketing is a 2 – 5 year process, you will be required to take massive amounts of action in order to learn the skills of MLM.  It really is a matter of learning new skills and creating new habits to become truly successful and the place you have to work the hardest is on yourself.  Because if you already had the skills to be super successful in business, you would already be super successful.Unlike a franchise, you can build your MLM team while still maintaining your job (just over broke).  Yes you will have to build a team because no one becomes super successful in business without a team.  MLM requires the same skills as required for building any business.  You will need to be focused, committed, persistent and in it for the long haul.  Just like if you were to be going for a degree at a university, you would not quit in the first year because you did not have your degree yet would you?The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time. Robert KiyosakiDr Stephen Covey’s latest book “The 8th Habit” he talks about the need in our society for the next paradigm shift.  Right now the corporate world has you and me on the wrong side of the balance sheet.  You and I are considered to be liabilities.  Now I know that there is no way you would consider yourself to be a liability, neither do I and neither does the business model of MLM.  With MLM the team concept is critical, every person is a contributing member of the team, in effect an asset rather than a liability.We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals. Stephen Covey Being the team leader that other people are attracted to is one of the great skills you will develop in Multi Level Marketing.  Learning to let people develop and grow at their own pace and in their own time, you cannot force growth on someone else.When you make Multi Level Marketing about the product you become a commissioned sales person.  I would suggest that this is not where you want to be, It is not about the product.  Yes you will have to find a company you connect with, one that is ethical, moral and has a long term commitment to your success.  More importantly you need to find a team leader who has a time tested, proven system that you can duplicate in order to achieve your own success.  Because you will be building your MLM business with that team leader not the company.So when your friend comes to you with a business opportunity take a look at who is teaching them.  Ask yourself is this who I want to spend the next 2 – 5 years learning from and if it is I strongly suggest you jump right in!
