Many of us grew up with many life lessons imparted from older generations (grandpa/grandma/mom/dad) which in most cases were wiser because of their own life lessons learned from experience.But, it wasn't until I reached a point in my life where the situation actually calls for applying what was taught to me earlier in life that I realized the true value of the knowledge that I possessed.Now let us take a step back and review what we actually already know and how it can actually be put into a mo

I'll address a quick issue here today.Bill Cosby once said this... "I don't know the key to success but I do know that the key to failure is trying to please everybody."Makes me think of my business. How hard it is some customers can be. It's true when you are dealing with hundreds or thousands of clients each day, you can't possible please everyone. One thing you can do is this. Try your best each day to improve the lives of others and ignore the haters. There's got to be someone out there who

The bottom line here is to remember the formula for determining profit:Income – Expenses = Profit.Idea #3: Don’t spend unnecessary advertising dollars.So many times new entrepreneurs will start out running PPC advertising with absolute abandon.They will choose every single key word and phrase possible and then let the PPCadvertisements run 24/7. This is a huge waste of advertising dollars.You need to learn to read the statistics that are provided to you by search engines and gear yo

If you insist upon doing everything yourself, whether you are good at it or not, you will use up all of your thought and energy and have nothing left to do the things that only YOU can do to make your business grow.Hire an accountant or a bookkeeping service.Every business must keep a record of its day to day financial transactions and even the smallest of transactions add up to big tax deductions over the period of a year.You can’t simply file everything under ‘miscellaneous’

Email comes in several varieties.... Emails that are business related.Emails that are important but not business related.Emails that are simply frivolous and time wasting.If an email has been forwarded several times, don’t waste your time.If an email is addressed to a great many people, don’t waste any time on it either. Email can consume a lot of time. You need to filter the important from the irrelevant and only spend time on those emails that are related to your business.Set up t

Time for work-at-home entrepreneurs is their single most valuable asset. Nothing can replace time…valuable, precious time!No matter how rich or poor you are, no matter how many things are on your ‘to-do’ list, you still just get the regulation twenty-four hours each day.Sometimes I could use another twenty-four but that isn’t going to happen. I’ll bet that you could use more hours in your work day, as well.The thing about those twenty-four allotted hours per day i

I've heard people say that the main reason they want to work at home is because they can work only when they want to work. It IS true that you can set your own work hours when you work at home, but it does NOT mean that you don’t have to have set work hours.A ‘hit or miss’ work schedule…or rather, the lack of any work schedule at all, simply will not work. Time is of the Essence! YOUR time!Working at home can be a very, very good thing. You can be at home to see the kid
