The Personal Fulfillment of Self Employment

Sat, 31 Mar 2007 05:54:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas
If you are considering self employment, you are probably familiar with the clichés of those who have gone down this road before you: the ability to work in your fuzzy slippers, the notion that you will be able to seek off your kids to the school bus each morning and be there to pick them up again, and of course the fact that you will no longer have to commute and be stuck in traffic for hours on end. While these all sound like great incentives to take advantage from your ability to become self employed, remember that in addition to the many professional and monetary advantages, there are also a large number of personal advantages.

For example, consider the fact that your sense of self worth will suddenly skyrocket. After all, you have managed to let go of the safety net that is represented by corporate employment, and you have trusted in your innate ability to do a good job with your knowledge and skills to such an extent that you will be able to survive without a third party to pay your way. No longer bound to an employer for your life’s earnings and your family’s financial wellbeing, you are now the master of your own destiny. This is quite possibly the ultimate rush with respect to self fulfillment, and it is easy to see that it ranks quite high with folks who are experiencing this freedom for the very first time.

Of course, there is more to life than simply being the master of your own destiny; one such item is the fulfillment you will realize when you suddenly notice that it is your personal genius and creativity that are making your success happen. No longer are your successes dictated by the marketing campaigns of others, but instead it is your very own marketing effort that is putting you on the map and causing potential customers and clients to contact you in order to do business. Sure, a lot of time and effort probably went into your marketing campaign, but consider the significant pride you will be able to take in achieving success not only with your product or service, but also with the very marketing innovation that put you on the map!

As you can see, the personal fulfillment that you will be able to achieve simply by being self employed is staggering. It is hard to put into words and it must be experienced to be believed. The reward received because you very own personal creativity is priced, and the personal fulfillments you will receive because of it almost make it worth your while to have worked hard countless hours. There is nothing quite like it and you will know when the feeling suddenly hits you – it is an experience second to none!

Grow Home Based Internet Business Slowly

Sat, 31 Mar 2007 05:53:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas
For many folks a home based internet business is a dream and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it a reality. Being able to find something you enjoy doing and turn it into an occupation that allows you to work from home is something many people are looking to do. You should know that in order to make any home business a success will take time and effort to see it grow.

First, you will need a business that you enjoy working, as you will need to spend a lot of time organizing it and working little details. Regardless of the type of home based internet business you plan to operate, getting its name out in front of potential customers will the most important aspect of running your business.

Many people believe that simply designing a great website offering a good mix of merchandise or great services will allow them to be a success. Wrong. It does not matter how great a website you build nor how wonderful your products and prices are. If no one knows about your site, it is the same as not having one.

However, you can do many things to get your business noticed, especially through other online businesses. Depending on your budget, you can advertise with other online businesses, you can place ads on television, radio and in newspapers or, if the budget is tight, you can do little things to get your name into the public view without spending a ton of money.

By being active in your community and being involved you can let others know about your website. Placing flyers on public bulletin boards or having small, inexpensive advertising items printed up to hand out to prospective customers. You can offer advice columns to your local newspaper on topics related to your area of expertise, with your name and business name listed in exchange for payment of your information.

Small town newspapers offer the best opportunity to have your advice column published as they often accept freebies to help supply pertinent information for their readers. Additionally, if some event is approaching in which your expertise can be utilized, volunteer to provide services free of charge in exchange for having your name used. For example, printing a program for a high school play can probably be done for under $100, but if there are 1,000 handed out with the line that states the programs are provided by, followed by your name, you get your name in front of the parents along with free positive publicity.

A t-shirt with your company name and web address printed on it can probably be had for under $10 and wearing it in public puts the message out there that a new business is in town.

Work At Home Jobs Require Skill And Dedication

Sat, 31 Mar 2007 05:49:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas
So, you want to stay home and work. Understand there is a difference between working at home and working from home, and by working at home all your work will be completed while you sit in your home office, just feet away from your television set, your car and all the household chores that need to get done.

When you first think you want to work at home, there are a couple of things you need to be honest about with yourself. First, you will have to decide if you a marketable skill than can be used to work at home. Many companies may have positions open for which you can telecommute, or work at home, but most people who do work at home operate their own business.

Whether you own your own business or telecommute for someone else, the second thing required is the self-discipline needed to make it work. While the dress code may be very relaxed and the hours on the job may be extremely flexible, the work will still need to get done and on time. When you accept an assignment you are making a promise to get the job done by a specific deadline. It will take self-discipline to make that happen.

Too many times those working at home will take just a few minutes to handle personal or home tasks such as cleaning the house, washing dishes or doing to laundry, just to name a few. These are things that could not be done if you were working away from the house and should not be done if you work at home. If you are running your own business out of your house, then it is probably true that if you do not work you do not get paid. No client is going to pay you to finish your laundry, so you better get back to work.

One of the biggest opportunities you will find in working from home is interruptions. Typically, family and friends see you at home and presume you have all the free time in the world. The family expecting you to run errands or friends dropping in unannounced can be distractions to you and slow down your progress on any project.

Some people keep a calendar for required time off so if family plans are made, the person who works at home knows to plan their schedule around that day and that function. This allows for a work-life balance and can help your family understand how you work at home.

You may find the need to be blunt with other friends and family members who just drop in, explaining to them that although you are at home, you are working and are not able to drop everything to visit with them. True friends will understand and respect your need for less distractions in order to complete your work on time.

Making Money With Multilevel Marketing Takes Effort

Fri, 09 Mar 2007 03:58:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas

Everyone wants to know how to go about making money with multilevel marketing online and the answer is so complicated that it is simple. Regardless of what some of the scam business might tell you, it is going to take some effort on your part to turn your dream of owning your own successful online business into reality.

You are most likely not going to watch money start to pour out of your computer within 10 minutes of signing up for the get-rich-quick promotion. Nor are you magically going to have the wit and wisdom to draw hundreds of people into your downline to share in their profits ten minutes after that. If that is how you envision your future you should roll over, pull up the covers and go back to sleep. Think about it; if a person knew how to do that, they probably would keep all that money for themselves.

However, in selling a product or service even the most successful business knows that in order to increase business they will need to add employees, or in the case of multilevel marketing, additional distributors for the product or service. If one person can sell a hundred, two should be able to sell 200 and three should be able to sell 300 if common sense is used. Depending on the product and the people doing the selling this is conceivable to accomplish. Basically, if you hope to make money in a multilevel marketing business, you will have to believe in that business.

How people make money in multilevel marketing, making more money with minimal work on their part, is to first become a distributor of a product or service in which you believe. You then offer someone else an opportunity to make money selling the product and you will receive a percentage of the profits from those sales as a reward for bringing in a new distributor. If that person can add another distributor of the product or service, he makes a percentage of that person’s sales and you now pick up more money as well. You will be making money on the sales of two people, even if you never sold another thing on you own.

Depending on the multilevel marketing program you are a part of, there may be a limit to the number of folks in your downline from whom you earn a commission for adding those distributors, and when you reach that goal only their sales can impact your income stream positively or negatively. When you believe you have reached the peak of income potential, while still receiving the commissions, you can begin looking into other programs to generate another income stream. In that regards there is virtually no limit to the number of streams that bring cash flowing into your bank account.

The Best Way To Choose A Residual Income Program

Fri, 02 Mar 2007 03:49:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas

Residual income programs are built on people recruiting people. One person sells their business idea to another who joins and becomes the down line to help earn that person money. Selling is all about appealing to a person’s emotions. They try to get a person to feel passionate about what they do, so they will buy into it. That is why many people choose a residual income program that is not for them. They were sold based upon their emotions, not rational thinking, which is the best way to choose a residual income program.

The process of selling is showing passion and getting other to feel that passion about what is being sold. One of the goals in a residual income program is to get others to sign up and become part of the team. As more people sign up the people who signed them up make more money. It is easy to see why people use aggressive tactics to sell the residual income program to others. It is also easy to see why many people end up choosing the program that is not the best for them.

Overcoming the emotions and being able to choose based upon well thought out reason is the way to choose the best residual income program. So, how can a person do that? They need to learn the top things to look for in a good program. The program needs to have an appealing product. It needs to be something that is interesting and something that people will buy. They should also be unique and something people cannot buy anywhere else. The company should have a stable history. It should have good growth potential and not have any problems financially or structurally. It should have a good marketing system that is taught to every new person. It should be easy to use and something that is easy to learn. The payment plan should be easy to understand and make sense. It should be easy for a person to see how they can make a long term profit. Lastly, the company needs to show teamwork is built into it. Teamwork should be a main part of the company and should be easy for a person to see when they start to learn about the company.

The best residual income program is defined by each person. It is perhaps easier to define the worst program. The guidelines above, though, should explain how to weed out the bad ones and settle in on the ones that have the possibility to be the best. By reading through them and getting to understand them a person should have a good understanding what makes for a good company where they can earn a good income.

Understanding The Pitfalls for Work At Home Moms

Mon, 26 Feb 2007 18:52:00 +0000

Congratulations on being able to make some money working from home! You are probably the envy of moms everywhere who would love nothing better than to be in your shoes as a work at home mom. Yet did you know that work at home moms face a myriad of challenges that very often are not realized until they are well into the work relationship? Granted, your comfortable chair in front of your computer and being able to work from home in your pajamas, make for probably the best work environment known to woman, but there are some pitfalls that might turn this opportunity into a nightmare.

Being your own boss is a concept that you yourself may understand, but it may be an alien concept to your girlfriend who is in a pinch and needs a babysitter. Suddenly you find that you are on the speed dial of sitter-less friends everywhere, who, while admiring your ability to stay home and work, don't seem to understand that you have a schedule to keep, deadlines to meet, and tasks to perform. Suddenly you find that you are asked to watch children so your friends can go to work, thus leaving you unable to do work yourself.

At the same time, you know how hard it is to say “no” when a friend in need approaches you. This is why, the best piece of advice for work at home moms, is to have a dedicated phone line for your business that you answer during business hours. Let your personal calls be picked up by your answering machine. Alert your childrens' school to the fact that you have a new work number and you will not have to worry about missing an important call that might have to do with your children.

Yet it is not just the girlfriend who might not understand the concept of you actually working as your own boss. Your husband and other family members may fall into the same category! You might suddenly have to field request to pick up the husband’s dry cleaning, take the cat to the vet, call the bank to sort out a problem with the mortgage check, and a host of other tasks that will take time away from the business you are trying to run. Setting a schedule that is discussed before hand with your family will quite possibly help them to understand that there are certain blocks of time during which you are unavailable, and this might mean that the dry cleaning will have to wait for another day and the cat will have to wait until the weekend to get her shots.

The bottom line is that you and everyone else needs to understand, that being a work at home mom is not the same as being a stay at home mom. You are in fact running a business and need to treat it as such.

Accept Credit Cards Online

Mon, 26 Feb 2007 02:42:00 +0000

More and more people are starting to shop and conduct business on the internet. I personally pay the majority of my bills each month online and this past Christmas, almost all of my shopping was done online. Practically every website that I visited will accept credit cards online, meaning that my purchases would be delivered right to my front door. What more could I ask for? I didn’t have to fight the mall traffic or stand in line for entirely too long just to pay for my purchases. There’s something rather appealing about sitting at home, in my pajamas, doing my shopping. I know quite a few people who did the exact same thing.

When companies have a website, if they accept credit cards online, their business will certainly grow. In fact, it has become incredibly outdated for companies to not accept credit cards online. Gone are the days that people want to wait to send a check in the mail and have to wait another week to receive their purchase. When a customer pays with their credit card, it is processed and paid for immediately and the item can be shipped just as promptly. Not only is it convenient, but it is quick. Of course, there is always the possibility that modern day hackers who enjoy being a nuisance can interfere. When you make the decision for your business to accept credit cards online, you are deciding to increase your sales and establish convenience, but you need to take some steps to ensure that your website is secure to the best of your ability. Be sure to consult a professional when preparing to set up your security.

There are many companies out there that can help you get started in setting up your website to accept credit cards online. They have packages to offer you, and offer assistance. Make sure that whoever you choose is not only reputable but you are completely comfortable dealing with them. I would recommend checking with the Better Business Bureau to see what the credibility and reputation of the company that you are choosing is. A company may offer a wonderful deal but if they don’t have a good reputation, you may end up with much more of a mess than you would have if you’d simply paid a bit more up front. And just remember, for holidays and special occasions, not to mention impulse shopping, there are people like me shopping on the internet. And I only shop sites that accept credit cards online.

How To Write An Ebook

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 20:55:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike ComasThe hardest part of writing is the first sentence.When you look at the whole project, it seems like animpossible task. That's why you have to break it downinto manageable tasks. Think of climbing a mountain.You are standing at the foot of it and looking up atits summit vanishing into the clouds. How can youpossibly scale such an immense and dangerous mountain?There is only one way to climb a mountain: step bystep.Now think of writing your ebook in the same light. Youmust create it step by step, and one day, you willtake that last step and find yourself standing on thesummit with your head in the clouds.The first thing you have to do, as if you actuallywere a mountain climber, is to get organized. Insteadof climbing gear, however, you must organize yourthoughts. There are some steps you should take beforeyou begin. Once you've gone through the followinglist, you will be ready to actually begin writing yourebook.Beginning Steps to Writing an ebookFirst, figure out your ebook's working title. Jot downa few different titles, and eventually, you'll findthat one that will grow on you. Titles help you tofocus your writing on your topic; they guide you inanticipating and answering your reader's queries. Manynon-fiction books also have subtitles. Aim for clarityin your titles, but cleverness always helps to sellbooks ? as long as it's not too cute. For example,Remedies for Insomnia: twenty different ways to countsheep. Or: Get off that couch: fifteen exercise plansto whip you into shape.Next, write out a thesis statement. Your thesis is asentence or two stating exactly what problem you areaddressing and how your book will solve that problem.All chapters spring forth from your thesis statement.Once you've got your thesis statement fine-tuned,you've built your foundation. From that foundation,your book will grow, chapter by chapter.Your thesis will keep you focused while you write yourebook. Remember: all chapters must support your thesisstatement. If they don't, they don't belong in yourbook. For example, your thesis statement could read:We've all experienced insomnia at times in our lives,but there are twenty proven techniques and methods togive you back a good night's sleep.Once you have your thesis, before you start to write,make sure there is a good reason to write your book.Ask yourself some questions:* Does your book present useful information and isthat information currently relevant?* Will your book positively affect the lives of yourreaders?* Is your book dynamic and will it keep the reader'sattention?* Does your book answer questions that are meaningfuland significant?If you can answer yes to these questions, you can feelconfident about the potential of your ebook.Another important step is to figure out who yourtarget audience is. It is this group of people youwill be writing to, and this group will dictate manyelements of your book, such as style, tone, diction,and even length. Figure out the age range of yourreaders, their general gender, what they are mostinterested in, and even the socio-economic group theyprimarily come from. Are they people who read fashionmagazines or book reviews? Do they write letters inlonghand or spend hours every day online. The more youcan pin down your target audience, the easier it willbe to write your book for them.Next, make a list of the reasons you are writing yourebook. Do you want to promote your business? Do youwant to bring quality traffic to your website? Do youwant to enhance your reputation?Then write down your goals in terms of publishing. Doyou want to sell it as a product on your website, ordo you want to offer it as a free gift for filling outa survey or for ordering a product? Do you want to usethe chapters to create an e-course, or use your ebookto attract affiliates around the world? The more youknow upfront[...]



Setting Your Goals - Easier Said, Easily Done

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 20:06:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike ComasThe basics of setting a goal is an open secret known by top-caliber athletes, successful businessmen and businesswomen and all types of achievers in all the different fields. The basics of setting goals give you short-term and long-term motivation and focus. They help you set focus on the acquisition of required knowledge and help you to plan and organize your resources and your time so that you can get the best out of your life.Setting clearly defined short term and long term goals will enable you to measure your progress and achieve personal satisfaction once you have successfully met your goals. Charting your progress will also enable you to actually see the stages of completion leading to the actual realization of your goals.

Your self-confidence and level of competence will also improve as you will be more aware of your capabilities as you complete or achieve your goals. The basics of goal settings will involve deciding what you really want to do with your personal life and what short term and long term goals you need to achieve it. Then you have to break down goals into the smaller and manageable targets that you must complete in your way to achieving your lifetime targets. Once you have your list waste no time in tackling your goals.A good way to have a manageable list is to have a daily and weekly set of goals. By doing this you will be always in the position of going towards you life plan goals. Everyday will give you the opportunity to fulfill a certain goal giving you the feeling of accomplishment.Here are some pointers that should be taken into consideration in setting goals and achieving them.Attitude plays a very big role in setting and achieving your goals.

If your goals require you to have a certain kind of degree or require a certain specialization or demand a certain skill to be developed, make plans in getting the appropriate education.Your family should never be left out of your plans. If you are just starting out then you have to decide if you want to be a parent or when you want to be a parent. You also have to know if you really would be a good parent and how well would you relate to extended family membersPersonal financial situations also play a major role in achieving your goals. Have a realistic goal on how much you really want to earn. You also must be able to create plans or stages by which you will be able to reach your earning potential.Physically gifted individuals may be able to achieve sports related goals like being in the National Basketball association or National Football League. Determining your physical capabilities should be one of your priorities. Physical limitations could however be conquered with proper planning.As the saying goes -'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy', or something to that effect, is by all means true down to the last the letter. Giving yourself a little pleasure: should be included into your plans.To start achieving your lifetime goals, set a quarter of a century plan, then break it down to 5[...]



Running a Successful Home Business – Keeping Family and Business Separate

Thu, 22 Feb 2007 04:15:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas

A home business brings with it the opportunity to stay at home and get your work done there. It is the dream of many Americans, and each year thousands embark on this venture. Yet sadly, many also give up and return to the workplace frustrated, angry, and quite possibly with strained family ties.

While it is not possible to please everyone, there are some distinct steps you can take to keep business and family separate yet at the same time meet all of their needs. If you have teenagers in your home, then you know what a great necessity the telephone presents to them. Yet at the same time, if you are running a home business, you know that it is vital to you as well.


=====> A Swarm of Traffic to Your Site <=====

Targeted prospects will swarm your site 24/7! Just 5 minutes to set-up, it's automated, "viral" and proven - and best of all it's FREE! Traffic Swarm



Yet when you have someone else in the home that needs the phone just as much as you do – even if it is for different reasons – you will soon find yourself arguing for access to this commodity. It is important that you install a different business telephone line with a separate voice mail. The understanding needs to be that this line is off limits to anyone else living in the home, and that only you will have access to that line. This will permit you to keep a talkative teen from occupying your second line, if mom is talking on the first line.

Additionally, it also will allow you to put your workday to rest. Turning off the ringer when you are done with your day’s work and focusing on your family will take care of a lot of the resentment that might be building by your family when they see you answering the phone during dinner or making business calls during game night.



(image)



This leads to the second challenge that so many family members complain of: the notion that you are constantly at work. The goal of working from home by running your home business was to spend time with friends and family, yet if you are on call seemingly 24 hours a day, you are selling your goal short. As hard as it may be to do – especially in the beginning when you are building your business – you will need to observe business hours just like the big stores do.

Do not work around the clock, but instead, quit at a certain time of day to spend time with your family. Granted, you might need to pull some overtime here and there, but these occasions should be the occasional exception rather than the constant rule.

Personalized stationery is a nice product that promises to impress anyone who receives correspondence from you. There are many options when it comes to these kinds of products and you may find that more than one type of personalized stationary appeals to you. Following are some examples of great ideas in personal notes.

Do you write a lot of memos? Why not make your notes extra special by adding a personal touch? Your customers will appreciate that personalization. In business, you always want your customers to feel they can trust you and feel like they know you. It will make a huge difference and increase your sales. There are some great designs in memo pads as personalized stationary that offer unique and interesting displays for your recipients. I personally like the traditional design that uses your initials as well as a clever bray matte ink print of your name lightly placed on the paper.

The memo pad personalized stationary make great gifts for customers and coworkers, too. These gifts are well received and really popular. I actually received mine as a present from my wife and I’ve been ordering this personalized stationary ever since.

I also invested in some unusual personalized stationary that I use just about everywhere. Anyone who is really busy and forgetful as I am would benefit from getting the self-stick memos that carry a whopping 50 sheets per pack. This is some of the most useful personalized stationary that I own. I use it to help me remember important appointments and as my personal "To Do" list.

One of the hottest new items in personalized stationary is the multitasking memo pad. These items can be used in a number of ways and what makes them so unique is their size. These papers also have great lines to keep your print even and tidy. This is really appealing to me because I tend to write really fast when on the go.

The last item that anyone who wants to learn how to organize will appreciate is the desk organizer. You can make this a great gift for secretary’s day and if you add some personalized stationary for that extra special touch. I found this to be one of the most valuable items on my desk.

The personalized stationary is very ideal for me at my home office, I decided to purchase some for my regular correspondence. This special paper is so nice that I am moved to write letters by hand instead of sending emails all the time. With people nowadays receiving so much email, it feels nice to receive a pesonalized note or letter. Personalized stationary can be used in many ways in the office and at home.

Office Supply Store And Home Based Businesses

Tue, 20 Feb 2007 20:07:00 +0000

I used to think that because I didn’t own a larger business, I had no use for an office supply store. Since I work from home, there are things I need, but I didn’t think there was any point in going. I went in one day with my wife and found out how wrong I was. There were a lot of things there that I needed and the prices were great. I could get quality materials at a decent price. There were things there for other uses too, and I now go there all the time.

You can find printer paper for your computer that is very inexpensive as well as the good stuff you may need for presentations or mailings. An office supply store is ideal for the Home Based Business owner.

If you are looking for software or any electronic items, you can find stuff at the office supply store near you. It might be wise to price items there as well as in places like Best Buy or even a department store. This gives you more options for getting a good price on the stuff you want. The office supply store may not have the best price, but you won’t know until you shop around. You may find a deal there that you can’t find anywhere else. They may also have software that you can’t find in other stores.

From what I understand, most office supply stores even offer customers loyalty bonuses, which consist of huge savings, sometimes every week. I get emails from Office Depot at least once a week, with coupons offering substantial savings on products.

An office supply store is great if you sell on eBay or just have a lot of packages to send out at any given time of the year. You can get large amounts of shipping materials at a lower price, and you can find things you can’t find in Wal-Mart. You can also find digital cameras, laptops, office furniture, and many other neat things if you go to an office supply store for what you need. Small business owners, those who are self employed, and everyone else can find something they need right there.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Tue, 20 Feb 2007 18:44:00 +0000

Steven Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” made a big splash with this self help book, perhaps due to his savvy analysis of shared principles and characteristics of people who were truly effective in their lives. His analysis of these 7 habits of highly effective people boiled down to just seven characteristics, which gives hope to us all! Let's take a brief look at what he found.The first on his list of 7 habits of highly effective people is to 'be proactive'. This habit was given first place because he found that all people were essentially proactive or reactive. Proactive people accepted the consequences of their own actions and realized that we always have choices. Reactive people tended to believe things just “happened” and their choices made no difference. Before progress can be made on the other six habits, the reactive person must make the switch to a proactive frame of reference.The second of the 7 habits of highly effective people is to 'begin with the end in mind'. This means identifying your dreams, the end goal. You must define what will be fulfilling to you,whether in career choices or family life. Many successful careers ultimately prove unfulfilling, offer no true personal satisfaction, simply because the person failed to identify the end goal.The third habit of the 7 habits of highly effective people builds on the second habit. Until you've identified your goals, Covey maintains you will not be able to distinguish what is important or unimportant to your end goal. The third habit is 'first things first'. This habit deals with effective prioritizing and time management.Fourth is 'think win-win or no deal'. This is a revolutionary concept when you realize that in any dispute, there are solutions that will truly benefit both parties, without compromise and with both satisfied with the resolution.Fifth in the 7 habits of highly effective people is 'seek first to understand' which is a profound observation. When two people talk, their goal is usually to be understood by the other person. A more fruitful strategy is to try first to understand the other person. When the other person sees you do want to understand his position, doors magically open to real understanding.Sixth, we have 'Synergize'. This is a creative brainstorming technique to find 'win-win' solutions. Using the technique results in creative solutions better than any individual participant might have thought.'Sharpening the Saw', the last of the 7 habits of highly effective people, addresses four dimensions of humanity which must be exercised: body, mind and spirit, and – added by Covey – the interpersonal. Regular physical exercise, enrichment of your knowledge and spiritual contemplation or meditative practice are also necessary habits to be a highly effective person.I was fortunate to come across this book as well as many others, in my journey to financial independance. This book was one of the many "TOOLS" that I've used to achieve the success of my businesses and my personal life. In fact I keep a small version of the book consisting of just the 7 Habits, on my desk, in my Home Office.These 7 habits are a model for improved relations with other people, successful outcomes and personal satisfaction. We might all benefit from the lessons in this book.I hope you can use the information I shared with you on this post and apply it to whatever it is you are trying to achieve. I encourage you to post comments on this post as well as the others found on this blog. Everyone faces challenges in their quest for financial freedom. However,some people may think that they are the only ones who are experiencing those challenges. I can tell[...]



The New Network Marketing And The Internet

Mon, 19 Feb 2007 21:23:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike ComasWhether you are a network marketing pro or just someone getting started, you cannot afford to ignore the possibilities that are opening up because of the internet. Network marketing has never been an easy business. For the most part, one has to work hard and long, selling products and recruiting people for weeks and months before one has any chance of earning a substantial salary. In other words, a network marketing business can often be just as tough to operate as other types of businesses.It is true that some people make a ton of money in network marketing. Most often, however, these are people who have an excess of energy, wildly optimistic, and almost pathologically extroverted people. Most people obviously do not fall into this class, which explains why many do not reach the network marketing goals that they set for themselves. There’s something very unpalatable about doing everything yourself when it comes to a sale pitch – especially so, when you are applying it to family and friends. The truth is, you probably do not want to pressure the people closest to you to support you, but you also want them to get involved in what you do as well. Equally difficult to do is “cold calling,” when you simply strike up a sales pitch with just about anyone who will listen, even complete strangers. Some people can do all these things, but the vast majority of network marketers find it difficult to do so. The New Network Marketing: Build Your Network Online! Fortunately for many of us, an alternative exists to the hard work of bricks-and-mortar network marketing: online network marketing. In the intensely impersonal atmosphere of the internet, it becomes possible to avoid some of the social problems that often come with the network marketing turf. One of the great advantages of online network marketing is that you suddenly have the ability to multiply yourself, instantly. Whereas in the real world you are limited to making a few sales or getting a few recruits a day, over the internet, your potential is practically limitless. With a global audience at your fingertips, you are more than certain to attract people whom you will find it easy to work with. In online network marketing, the hardest thing you will probably have to do is set up a website with autoresponder. The website will contain all the information that you usually include in a presentation, which means that you won’t have to do any personal meetings yourself, if you chose to. You can choose to spend your time and energy with the clients whom you think are better prospects, instead of every Tom, Dick, and Harry that comes around. The autoresponder, on the other hand, will make sure that you won’t have to spend unnecessary time answering routine correspondence, again freeing up your time for more productive activities.About the Author:--------------------------------------------------------------Mike Comas is Founder and CEO of Discover Income From Home.com and Micom Business Solution.

The One True Secret To Guaranteed Residual Income

Fri, 16 Feb 2007 04:02:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike Comas

There are many people who claim they have the secret to guaranteed residual income. They say it is a process or system. They charge large amounts of money for the secret or they give it away because they want the people to whom they give it to become a part of their opportunity. What they are really offering is just a chance to join their opportunity so they can make more money. Not a great secret and definitely not the one true secret to guaranteed residual income.

The one true secret to guaranteed residual income is attitude. Every person that has ever been successful in business has the same attitude. They are dedicated and passionate about their business. Without dedication and passion a person will not succeed at their business. It does not even matter how good the product is or how great the person is at selling and marketing, the bottom line is if they do not have the attitude they will not succeed.

It may be hard to believe that attitude can have such an impact on business, but it does. A person who is not dedicated to their business will allow other things to push their business to the backburner. They will have no problem letting their business suffer in favor of doing something else. They will not be driven or determined to make their business the best that it can be. They will settle for anything. Their business will suffer from their lack of desire to make it successful. As with anything in life, if a person is not dedicated to the task they will likely not do much with it.

Passion is something that any good salesperson will say is the key to selling. At the heart of every business is something to be sold. Every good business person can sell and are passionate about their product. The reason for this is that in order for a person to buy something they have to develop an interest in it. A salesperson that is passionate will talk about a product as if it is the most wonderful thing imaginable. They will convince people they cannot live without it, that they need it. People will then become interested and likely buy it. A business person that is not passionate about their product will find they do not end up with very many customers who are passionate about it either.

Determination and passion are two of the most simple concepts, but they truly are the key to guaranteed residual income. These character traits are not something a person can learn, but rather are part of their state of mind about a business concept or product. When a person finds a residual income opportunity that fires up their dedication and passion, then they have found the opportunity for guaranteed success.

It is both an employee and store in one.Besides taking orders there are ways to optimize a website to help a business earn even more money. One idea is having a subscription site. The main part of the site with the catalogue and shopping cart is public, but a business owner can make part of the site for subscription only. This part of the site must offer something a person would be willing to pay for and something that a lot of people would be interested in. People pay a fee to become a member and have access to the members only part of the website. Another option is offering an affiliate program. This is a residual income in itself, but tied in with a website and a person can really skyrocket their business. on the other hand a business owner could join some affiliate programs and advertise them on their website.

Enjoy The Benefits Of The Internet And Network Marketing

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 17:52:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike ComasOne of the ways you can influence the growth of your internet business is through network marketing and having input onto which websites your advertising appears on. Many companies use a shotgun approach to affiliate marketing in that they allow any website that signs up as an affiliate to post their advertising, playing the odds of their ad being seen. They believe that the more places it is posted, the better chance it has of being seen.While there is a large degree of truth in that theory, there may be a few places where you do not want your ad to appear. Since affiliated marketing ads do not cost you until they show results, having them appear in the wrong neighborhood could hurt your credibility. With most affiliate marketing companies you have the final decision on whether or not you want your business name on an affiliate site. Instead of giving the go-ahead to any and all sites that apply, it may be better for you to give final approval before accepting a potential affiliate.Many internet businesses seeking affiliates, demand a high traffic count, which in many ways makes sense. But you do not want to make the site’s traffic stats the main criteria for accepting them as an affiliate. Do not overlook the niche businesses that may not get a lot of traffic, but the traffic they do get is specifically targeted to your business offering. For example, your offering of business development software will probably sell better on a site geared to new business owners that receives a mere 1,000 hits per day as opposed to a site selling cookie recipes that has 100,000 hits a day.It is okay to be particular, but do so in the right way. Sites with adult-oriented entertainment, which typically show high traffic counts, may not be an ideal base from which to draw customers for your business development software business. Some of these sites have names that may not indicate the true nature of their business and unless you research each site that requests affiliate status, your ad could end up on a site you would not want your mother to visit.In the old days of advertising, many businesses made the mistake of not being particular where there ads were seen, believing that as long as even a small percentage of those receiving their message may show an interest, it was worth the expense. It was not too long that someone had the idea to send the information only to specific people who might care. When returns on the advertising investment began to explode into sales, businesses embraced the notion of direct, targeted marketing. Internet and network marketing is similar, in that you want your message to be seen by those who are interested in your offering.About the Author:--------------------------------------------------------------Mike Comas is Founder and CEO of Discover Income From Home.com and Micom Business Solution.

Preparing Yourself To Start A Home Based Business

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 16:16:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike ComasStatistics have shown that home based businesses are on the rise. This is no surprise since technology like the internet is making it easier to access information and do business without ever leaving your home, or taking off your pajamas.home based businesses are often small businesses consisting of under 10 employees and often only one. The pressures of being both employer and employee can be enough to make most people want to close up shop shortly after hanging out their shingle. A little preparation prior to jumping in with both feet can make the transition from tradition employee to extraordinary business guru go much more smoothly.A careful self evaluation, however, is in order before embarking on your journey to self employment. If you really want an honest indexing of your strengths and weaknesses, you can quiz your friends and family. Do you have what it takes to be successful in business and get the work done. In essence, you need to be a jack of all trades and a master of at least one.Being your own boss has it’s definite advantages, but you also must consider if you are a self starter. Do you have the determination to push yourself and keep working on those clear, sunny days? Can you effectively stay focused on your work when the laundry lies in heaps on the steps from you office? Perseverance is key to surviving even the first week of a new home based business. Organization may be an issue, especially if quarters are cramped and you find yourself setting up your new office in the hall closet. Enlisting the help and support of your family before making your decision may help keep the peace during those long hours when the work finally starts to roll in.Information is vital. Research your chosen field of business. Interview others with experience in setting up home businesses. Read everything you can find about marketing your business, providing superior services and products, and managing your business.Consulting both an accountant and a lawyer are wise decisions, especially if done during the planning phase of your business. They may be issues with zoning ordinances and licensing and obtaining permits that you will not be readily made aware of. These items vary by geographic locations and should be researched thoroughly to ensure compliance with local, state and federal laws. Choosing a specific home based business can keep you awake many a night. The popular rule of thumb, is to choose an area that you are passionate about. This will inspire you to stick with it during the challenging times ahead and help ward off boredom. Loving what you do can make the difference between a business that survives and a business that thrives.Ask any successful business owner and they will all tell you the same thing. One of the secrets and keys to their success was and is that they always sought advice from a mentor. In fact, Napoleon Hill in his highly acclaimed book "Think and Grow Rich" mentions, that one of the keys to the success of the millionaires that he interviewed, was being part of a "Mastermind Group" Let Empowerism be your mastermid group!About the Author:--------------------------------------------------------------Mike Comas is Founder and CEO of Discover Income From Home.com and Micom Business Solution.

Sun, 11 Feb 2007 23:57:00 +0000

Copyright © Mike ComasDiscoverIncomeFromHome.comThe methods employed to increase your search enginerankings may seem like rocket science to you, so you haveprobably avoided dealing with this issue. I am here to tellyou - the time has come to face your website! A high search engine ranking for your website is so essential that if youhave the slightest desire to actually succeed in yourbusiness, there is no way you can continue to avoid thisissue.At least 85% of people looking for goods and services onthe Internet find websites through search engines such asGoogle, Yahoo, and MSN. The idea of optimizing your pagesfor high search engine rankings is to attract targetedcustomers to your site who will be more than likely to makea purchase. The higher your page comes up in search engineresults, the greater the traffic that is directed to yourwebsite. That's what search engine optimization is about.You can immerse yourself in all the technical informationavailable online to figure out how to optimize your webpages to achieve higher rankings. Or you can look at a fewsimple items on your pages, make some small adjustments,and most likely see improved rankings quite rapidly. Thefirst item you should examine is the title bar on yourhomepage.------> New To Internet marketing and Want To Discover an Easy Way To Achieve Making Money Online Successfully, by Learning How To Optimize Your Website? Checkout these FREE Newbie Training Videos.The title bar is the colored bar at the top of the page.Look at the words that appear there when you access yourhome page. To increase search engine rankings, the words onyour homepage's title bar should include the most importantkeywords or phrases, one of which would include yourcompany name.Then click on all your links and examine the title bars onthe pages you access. Each title bar on every single pageof your site should contain the most important keywords andphrases taken from the page itself. However, avoid verylong strings of keywords, keeping them to six words orless. Avoid repeating keywords more than once in the titlebars, and make sure that identical words are not next toeach other.The next item to put under your microscope is your websitecontent. Search engines generally list sites that containquality content rather than scintillating graphics. Thetext on your site must contain the most important keywords- the words that potential customers will be typing intosearch engines to find your site.Aim to have around 250 words on each page, but if this isnot desirable due to your design, aim for at least 100carefully chosen words. If you want to achieve a highranking on search engines, this text is essential. However,the search engines must be able to read the text, meaningthat the text must be in HTML and not graphic format.An Example of this would be: Work From Home Opportunity Idea.3 Easy Steps To Make Money Online!Notice how the keyword phrase "Work From Home Oportunity Idea"looks like a link. If you scroll your cursor over it and clickon it, it will take you to another page.So to find out if your text is in HTML format, take yourcursor and try to highlight a word or two. If you are ableto do this, the text is HTML. If the text will nothighlight, it is probably in graphic form. In this case,ask your webmaster to change the text into HTML format inorder to increase your search engine rankings.Next we come to what is called meta tags. I know thissounds like something out of science fiction[...]

If you have been lucky enough to have an employer who has given you the chance to do the same job you have done at the office, but to do it at home instead, you are indeed very lucky because you are able to really work form home and you don’t have to worry about finding a time or place to do your work. You also don’t have to worry about actually finding work because you are still working for the same employer, just from home instead of at the office.

However, if you find yourself without a boss or an employer, and still want to work at home, you can still do this. It is just that you are going to have to actually find a job and get to it. There are many jobs that can be done from home. There are many companies that will hire people to go door to door and sell things, like cosmetics and cook ware. You can hook up with one of these companies and work on your own time doing something you like to do.

However, if selling things isn’t what you want to do for a living, there are also many ways that you can work from home. You can get yourself hooked up with many different calling or mailing programs, where you make phone calls or mail things from home and get paid. If this still doesn’t’ sound like something you’d like to do, you can try online jobs.

Many companies will hire people online to do things for them. These things include to write copy or to edit things that have already been written for websites. You can also build web pages or design things for companies. You can also think about opening your own business, where you buy things in bulk for cheap online and then sell them for higher prices to make your profits.

Yes, there are many things that you can do in order to make ends meet and to live while you are working at home. Most of the time it is simply a matter of going out and finding the jobs that fit your needs so that you can begin to work from home as soon as possible and make enough money to take care of the things you need to take care of.

Remember to find a field that fits your interest and to begin to look for jobs in this field. You are going to find that you are coming across lots of different job offers, so be sure to do the best that you can do to weed them out and to only follow through with the offers that are legit and that won’t be scammers.

Copyright © Mike ComasDiscoverIncomeFromHome.comThere are many ways for a person to build residual income. Passive residual income is the type of residual income earned from investments. These investments keep turning a profit and allow a person to do very little work and invest very little time to turn a profit. Making a passive income is easy once a person understands the great ways to turn an investment into residual income.Passive income involves a one time investment of time or money to earn an ongoing residual income. Some people like to say it is impossible to get money for doing nothing, but that is not completely true. It is very possible for a person to invest in something one time and continue to earn from it. Think about television. Actors spend an initial amount of time preparing for and recording a show, but continue to get paid for it every time it is on television. That is just one example. There are many more out there. A website is a great example of how a person can turn a one time investment into residual income.A website can be set up to take orders, show products and even answer questions for customers. Optimizing a business website is a way to build passive residual income. Optimizing a website involves adding content and formatting it so that it becomes ranked high by search engines. This can take a little time to do, but once it is done a website will start to get a lot of traffic. By simply optimizing a website a business owner is driving traffic and sales to their website. They do not have to do anything more because the website will handle the rest. Using auto responders is another way. An auto responder is an automated email. When a customer sends an email to the auto responder address they get an immediate answer. Setting up an auto responder is easy and it can help in many ways. If a customer has a question and they send in an email they will be happier with a quick response of an auto responder and less likely to go elsewhere for the product. Auto responders can also be used to send out information, like special offers or sales which can lead to more business as well.A small investment of time can turn into major residual income. That is what residual income is all about. The ability to spend a few minutes tweaking a website, for example, could turn a struggling business into a thriving one. That is the beauty of residual income. So, in the end it is not really getting money for doing nothing. A person is investing something into the business and they are just earning a lot in return. There is no reason why a person must slave away to see a little profit. That is why residual income seems to be so popular.About the Author:--------------------------------------------------------------Mike Comas is Founder and CEO of Discover Income From Home.com and Micom Business Solution.
