Why Jim Rohn’s Legacy Matters To Home Business Entrepreneurs

“I wish for you a life of wealth, health and happiness; a life in which you give yourself the gift of patience, the virtue of reason, the value of knowledge, and the influence of faith in your ability to dream about and achieve worthy rewards…Jim Rohn

Network marketing has always held a special aspiration for people who look beyond conformity and the status quo, the driftwood of today to the horizons of tomorrow. From the beginning, this networking foundation has offered the opportunity for every day people to start a home business with minimal capital and potential of maximum profits. The business concepts are based on the tried and true principles of leverage, duplication of a simple marketing plan and residual income.

There is a new enterprise now that has opened this opportunity to even greater dimensions and created more advantages with major trends in internet marketing, shopping and advertising.

Being a networker is about setting standards of excellence and inspirations to live our dreams. We purposely plan our futures to be bright and fulfilling because we focus on today’s challenges and responsibilities to be the best we can be.

We have learned many of these indomitable skills by listening to a legendary business leader and philosopher, Jim Rohn. He personified the true spirit and heart of a networker and I have never been more proud than to be in this like-minded association. Jim Rohn has recently passed away but his thoughts and guidance live on. His seminars on tapes and CD’s have been friendly narrators on many road trips. His gentle words have fueled many ideas and ambitions about believing in yourself. He made the complex ideas sound powerful and attainable with simple steps to action. He was a tremendous friend to those that knew him with style and charisma, yet with integrity, humility, kindness and understatement. Isn’t that what we would all aspire to? He always appreciated his humble farm roots and his reflections about planting the seed…reaping what you sow…never giving in…laughing and loving, have made a difference in countless people’s lives. Wouldn’t we all want to be able to say that about ourselves?

Undoubtedly, he was one the greatest personal development philosophers of our time. Yet, other than tributes from networkers and friends, there was little mention of his life’s achievements on TV talk shows or the Internet. There were the trite headlines about celebrities, Kardashian gossip, entertainment flubs,flips and fiascos, family feuds and even dating tips for women from NFL stars.

My choice is to take pride in being a networker and in some way at a personal level continue planting these Jim Rohn seeds of wisdom.

My main wish is to return to basics with 3 concepts that make network marketing a fair and democratic home business opportunity even though individual backgrounds may be vastly different. The hardest challenge through trial and error is to find that one business program with a simple System for Success based on 3 Steps. Every mother, father, spouse, boss, teacher, nurse, executive, janitor, truck driver, or college student needs to check out one webinar that explains how this simple system sets up home-based profits enough even for your children and grandchildren.

It’s time for you to look in the mirror and decide, once and for all, you are done playing games, or standing by idly on the sideline while other people, possibly less talented, live in nicer homes and enjoy a better quality of life. It’s time for you to honestly make the decision to get serious about your life, to stop blaming others, and investigate the 3 Steps Plan to become the best that you can possibly be. It’s a simple yes or no answer, one that is clearly demonstrated by your actions as behavior never lies.

Decide on a plan of action or remain in the situation you are in. Either way, you pay the price. What is the cost of doing nothing? The decision that can change your life may just be found in an innovative free shop and save application where average families can save hundreds of dollars if not more. Once you know how to save money on all your shopping items, imagine the incentive to learn more about how to make money by distributing this valuable tool. Talk about rejection free marketing. Who says “no” to a free download App that shows how you never have to pay top price again?

But until you watch this compelling webinar, and not a second sooner, you will never know how motivated you can become about your success by plugging into internet wealth.Then get your questions answered and request a demo to see the kinds of savings you can make for yourelf. We are here to support you all the way.

Draw personal comfort from these two famous quotes by Jim Rohn:

Let others lead small lives, but not you. “Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”

“We all have two choices: We can make a living or we can design a life.”

Entrepreneur Bootstrapping Business Idea – Develop a Resume Writing Company

The job market is worse than it has been in years. People that have maintained long-term employment for decades are now back in the job market and college grads need every chance they can get. By developing a resume writing company, you and your associates will take all the necessary information from your clients and create resumes that are directed at the jobs they are trying to get. Read on to find out more.

This is a business that requires a lot of presence on-line. You will need to do a lot of on-line advertising on career sites and social networking sites.  By developing an on-line presence, you will be able to operate this business from anywhere.

You will need to create a web site where the person will enter all of their personal information, job history, and all other relevant items related to their resume. The business can be very template driven, where you can change the look of the entire resume in just a few clicks. If you really want to get automated, you could have the resume created automatically fort the client with tons of templates, discussion boards, and suggestions for better results.

This type of business is very conducive to obtaining a monthly subscription, or possibly you charge for 6-month blocks with unlimited resume updates in that time. You will also need to have some sort of call center, or trouble-shooting system for people that have not yet received their resume.

You could expand this business into report writing and cover letter authoring. By creating all of these items in one place you can develop package pricing and a la carte as well. This is the type of business where you will need to track the success of the clients and use those with an excellent job, in a short time, as testimonials for the site.

5 Ways Top Home Business Entrepreneurs Fight Procrastination

You ever go to bed at night exhausted from trying to figure out what the deal is with Lost? You were so bent on understanding this island of confusion that you started watching DVD’s of the first season to hopefully shed some light on this nonsensical cluster of darkness. Now, all this would be OK except that you were supposed to be working on your home business. It was, however, no fault of your own that the phone rang and the subject of Lost emerged innocently in the conversation. It was then completely logical to assume that you deserved a break and one episode wouldn’t hurt. Five hours later, it really made sense to get some rest and commit deeply to “making it all happen” tomorrow. Sound familiar? How much actually “happens” tomorrow? Usually not very much.

To be successful in home business today requires action. Though some people were just born with massive action, like the kids that started their own businesses at 9 and were millionaires before they graduated high school, most of us need to develop the skills for high productivity. Here are 5 things you can do right now to make yourself more productive and help guarantee success in your chosen home business today.

1. Be crystal clear about what you want- This may sound obvious but one of the primary reasons for procrastination is lack of clarity. If we aren’t sure about what we are doing or what we need to do next, we tend to do nothing. Write down your goals!

2. Start each day with a plan – now that you’ve got some goals, you should be able to sketch out a plan of how to achieve them. Back into it like this; Start with your primary goal and then figure out which tasks you’ll need to complete over the year (or the expected duration) to reach it. Then break down tasks over the next few months… you can change this as you go but its important to have a starting point. Now list the tasks for the next week. Now from what you have planned for the week, select the tasks for tomorrow. Simple… now follow your map.

3. Use the 80/20 rule – We all know that 20% of our actions typically counts for 80% of our results. Look at your activities and decide what the top 20% of them are and then commit to doing them before all else. NEVER do lower priority tasks before the more important ones.

4. What will happen if? – Think about every task you do before you do it and ask your self that question. “What will happen if I do this today? What will happen if I don’t?” Now compare it to the goal in your head. For instance, if the answer is that you will be less confused about Lost but tomorrow you’ll have twice as much work to do, you may want to go another route. Again, the key here is to be clear what you have to do and WHY you are doing it.

5. Do what Brian Tracy calls the ABC method – Simply put, this method allows you to prioritize your tasks to ensure that you take care of the most important tasks first. Look at your list of tasks and mark an “A” next to the tasks that, if not done, will have serious consequences. If you have a few, mark them “A-1, A-2, A-3” etc. “B” tasks are important but there is significantly less of a consequence if it’s not completed; returning some email and phone calls might be “B” tasks. As a general rule, don’t do a “B” task if an “A” task is left undone. “C” tasks are things that you’d like to do, but there really is no consequence at all if don’t; like if you missed lunch with a co-worker or another exciting discussion of Lost with your friend. “D” task are tasks you can delegate and should delegate if the option is open to you. “E” tasks don’t need to be done at all. Usually they are either no longer necessary or just something you’re in the habit of doing. Let them go.

Running a home business successfully requires a lot of self discipline and action… hopefully one or more of these tips will help you with your journey to success. I wish you prompt and timely success!

Tip #2 – Home Business Entrepreneurs Have an Office

Hoping you are enjoying our home business tips series for individuals looking at starting a home business or the entrepreneurs actively operating one. In the first article, it was mentioned how we can use hardware that enables us to work our business from anywhere in the house and even tools that allow us to work when we’re away, but by no means should that undermine the importance of having an office (or work designated space) in our home. A home based business does imply having a home office. To the same extent we have specific rooms in our homes for eating, cooking and sleeping, a space does need to be delimited for working. Even if we may not choose to work from there all the time, it’s important to have an anchor point for your business; you may want to view it as “Corporate Head Office”. You may decide to work from remote offices such as the patio, the hammock, the gazebo, the hotel room or the pool chair at your favorite Waikiki beach resort but in the end you will always need to come back and re-group in the home office – Corporate Headquarters.

While it is quite possible to have a paperless home office should you choose to, there’s always going to be some sort of paper even if you’re not the one generating it. You will have to start maintaining a filing system so piles of notes, advertising sketches, financial statements and the likes do not start piling on your desk.

The home office is also the area you can revert to when you need peace and quiet when other areas of your home are busy with sounds of playful youngsters, teen music, TV sports games or barking dogs. While those sounds are very natural to the home environment, they are also distracting to the work at hand. There are times when you need to focus your attention on a specific matter, think strategically or carry out a phone conversation and you need a place that will allow you to do so.

For that reason, you are best advised to tailor that area so it reflects your personality. You want to feel comfortable, well equipped and productive. Keep an organized and clean desk. Have all your office supplies placed for quick access. A desk can clutter easily so always remind yourself frequently that a desk is not a storage area but a work area. Your work area should feel spacious and not cramped. When you sit at your desk you should not have to move or remove piles of paper in order to find a place to work. Do not allow piles to form and when the day is over, clean up your desk so it’s ready and fresh for the next use.

If at all possible, choose a room that has a window so you can have daylight and fresh air come into your office. Fresh air will oxygenate your office so your brain can think clearly and you don’t feel sluggish. The sunlight brings you vitamins, brightens your day and makes the room alive. Add to that some favorite colors to accent your room and you’re set. While some may go as far as painting the walls to their liking, there are other alternatives. Put up colorful pictures on the walls, post your life vision, print your favorite quotes on colored paper and stick them to the walls at random angles, post your life goals and you might also want to frame some pictures of the important people in your life. All these will quickly fill up your wall space and pretty soon the color of your walls won’t even matter. It will make your work environment vibrant, warm, comfortable and conducive to the empowering thoughts you need when you revert to your work alcove.

Plants and animal life are also a good idea. Plants will create oxygen during daytime while their color and appearance will make the place alive. A fish tank is another source of light, it brings busy aquatic life to your room and creates a soothing effect.

Another area of your office should be devoted to your personal and business development library. A considerable amount of time need to be devoted to your development and if you do not have a library in the works already, it’s time you start one. But that will be for another article. In the mean time, put your construction hat and work boots on, you have an office to design; an anchor to set, a Corporate Headquarters to establish. See you in the boardroom!
