Core Concepts, Some Old Some New

27 Aug

Core Concepts, Some Old Some New.

So I’m going to be a bit erratic today folks.
I’m going to cover some stuff I’ve spoke on and some stuff that’s eluded my fans and myself as well. I’m also going to go out of order. Better said- I’m going to use these four core concepts in an order that I think precedes success.
-Put in the time
-Focus
-Mentors
-Follow through.

That’s it folks. Four core concepts that can change your business, change your life.
Let’s dig in!

-Put in the time.
I don’t care who you are or what your deal is. You will get nowhere if your dream, plan, scheme is a hobby. Sorry it’s a fact. You are a failure before you even dig in. Mastery of anything takes 10,000 hours.
Don’t have ten thousand hours to get rich? To be perpetually wealthy?
See you at the finish line after you’re lapped. I don’t care who you are or what your troubles and time constraints are.
Make time for your future. Make time to be free forever so you don’t miss the games with the kids or that super bowl vacation you only dreamed of before. Start small. Use your lunch breaks and bathroom time to sharpen your mind. When you have coffee read to build strategies from authors who have done it before you. Turn off the television. And xbox, ps3, not going to put cash into your roth ira is it?
Everyone has an hour a day for starters. Find yours.

-Focus.
You don’t get anything done well without it. Focus is the key that unlocks your dreams and desires. Chaos creates only more chaos. A focused mind however will guide and create. A focused mind is a tool that when honed to perfection will find cashflow and residual income. However you have to avoid the distractions. Turn off the tv- see a trend there? After that make sure you fill your time with productive tasks. The gym, education, reading. Make lists of what you need to do and the dollar amounts to reach on the road to financial freedom. When you are doing the tasks and steps that are required for your business- do only that. Multitasking detracts for most people. When you’re at work you work right? Well at your own venture you must be that much more focused.

-Mentors.
Mentors are great. A good mentor will for many mean the difference between success and failure. A mentor can illuminate the path for you whether you are in the same business or not. A mentor will help you see the mistakes you are making and help you skip a few they made themselves. My mentors are both highly successful and one is even in my current venture. However the one who isn’t is still there when I have questions and needs. His willingness to help and his thirst for knowledge and self growth are not only infectious but influential.
Accountability is a key aspect of a good mentor. They will ask you the questions you hoipe they won’t. They will want answers when you fail. They will require you work harder. And they need not gain from your success to be effective. A mentor may cost you money and they may not charge a dime. be aware thought hat you get what you pay for.
Lastly, the mentor I speak to most frequently asked me one question and pointed out my greatest flaw in my business endeavors. Do you see the power?

-Follow through.
So you got your focused mindset and your putting in 3 hours a day with a fifteen hour minimum. Awesome! You even found a mentor and things are smooth. Their pricing is reasonable and your learning curve has been exciting.
Great now FOLLOW THROUGH.
Life isn’t simply trying and applying. You have to repeat the process. Over and over and over. That’s it. No compromise, no hoping it was enough. Make it enough. Every action that breeds success must be repeated over and over. Not only will you become more successful but you will become better at these steps as you complete them repeatedly. NBA, NFL, MLB- all require repetitive motion to rise to the top. Ask Jeter. Ask Ted Williams. Ask Ray Allen. Ask Kobe Bryant. They don’t win and then slack. In the off season they work. And if you have competition for your business- buddy, you better believe your competition is training when you’re sleeping. That is the nature of the beast. Practice your craft. And then make practicing your practice a step. Sounds odd, I know. But you will get me when you see how it builds for you.

Evolve or be left behind.

1 Jul

Evolve or be left behind.

So I know this is quite the comical picture but if you take a minute to examine it there is a lesson to be had here.

-Marketing changes with the times.
So, many people are on facebook and will stay no matter if facebook rapes their privacy or not (can I say that and not get sued?). Bottom line is facebook has become an amazing marketing tool but you have to know the rules. A lot of people are doing it wrong and they get two results: nothing or they get banned. And that’s actually a discussion for a different article. But I state these facts to illustrate my point- you have to know what is in and what’s working. Now I’m not advocating Google+ I don’t even have an account with Google+, but the point is you have to time the markets. Marketing is about more than constant repetition. You have to know what to place and where.
A lot of people were late to the Facebook trend and as a result they rushed and did it wrong- bad idea.
Learn your market place.
You can’t market in every arena the same. You have to learn the nuances and make them work for you not against you. Seen the flock that’s in fear because of Google Panda and Google Penguin? Yup they weren’t ready for the markets. You have to be on point. This is a business and if you don’t treat it as such you will lose. Now going with the assumption that you are here to increase traffic and or learn something then you need to know that Google+ and Facebook will both work. As the illustration pointed out you have to be ready for change. Never be caught off guard. I would dare say you should have both as accounts for your marketing and even differentiate content as well.
Google+ hasn’t met some peoples standards but in general you need to be on every page- not figuratively but literally. You want to meet your consumers EVERYWHERE they Are. Google+ is where they are going? So should you then.

The basic premise of this article is that whether you google+ or facebook- be ahead of the times. I advocate for neither but both can increase your opt-ins, partners, and customers in your venture.

The bottom line is be on point. If either supersedes the other you need to be ahead of the curve. Both venues can get you to success if you put in the work. The question is will you put in work on all avenues or will you simply be a favorite follower? Get on board people.

Training: Buy and Apply

Training: Buy and Apply.

Training who needs it?
I haven’t seen this topic covered too much on the blogs or in general. The answer is EVERYBODY.
In every aspect of life you have probably had a teacher or a mentor. Someone generally illuminates the path for us. This is highly beneficial and should always be sought out.
And so-

-Training- BUY it.
WHY you ask?
I counter with why not?
In business you need a good cpa, no question. And the cpa in question should be proficient at a minimum. Same for your doctor right? Well these professionals. Accrued hundreds if not thousands of hours to obtain their licensing. And they also maintain their licensing by continuing education. To be the best you pay a price. And to excel beyond your last point you pay more. So why is it that some will assume they don’t need to cough up some cash to get ahead. What makes you different?
You are starting your own business or already have one if you’re one of my regulars. If you’re not you probably will. That being said if you could learn your business and skip hundreds of small failures for a small cash price wouldn’t that be worth it. Now failures make us stronger but there is a limit to finding inner strength and wasting time. Don’t you win if you skip ahead? Remember monopoly? You pass ahead of the guy with eight hotels with a simple roll of the die and you exhale in relief. Still not sure you want to duplicate that process on your terms?

-Training- APPLY IT.
This is going to sound ridiculous. I acknowledge many will say so and stop reading even. However many buy and ignore. More people buy to feel they are doing and never will. Let’s examine that.
Ever bought a gym membership you didn’t use? You paid the fee, made a resolution, and then life had other things in mind.
Or you dated a girl who prepaid her yoga classes so her and her friends could go and bond and grow? And in the end she was watching Sex and the City instead? A final favorite is the guy who joins a venture and it requires licensing so he pays out the refundable fee and decides he has better things to do than recoup that money and learn, aka MIND his business. I’ve seen a lot of this and its always the same thing. The back hurts. The engine wouldn’t turn over. But the sad truth is what we want we go out and get. So if you paid for a training series why won’t you take it. And then refresh it a few months later? If you don’t learn these basics you will get nowhere.
And you know what? I used to make this same mistake. I bought good training and didn’t use it. I took the next step only to sit down instead of running. And even worse- I did this twice! Yup I admit it. I bought programs that I knew worked from having seen it first hand. I spent my money, I talked about the freedom I’d gain, and then I turned on the you tube. Or I went out with the boys. People the time is now. Seize the day. Move forward. You spent the money. You invested in your freedom and your future. Now spend the one asset you won’t recover- TIME.

Buy your training.
Apply your training.
And then study it all over again.
And AGAIN.

Remember:
We don’t esteem that which we obtain too easily so earn your freedom and your wealth know and enjoy all of your days.

(The one thing your missing) in your business…

2 Jun

Do you have a mentor?

So you started a business, and your excited.
You’ve got a good business, great compensation plan, a long list of leads, and you know your why.
So the basics are all in line. You’re on fire to learn and you actually believe in your product- and the tax breaks afforded Americas small business owners are pretty nifty too (more on those later).
So we got through the amazing list and I have a small question-
Do you have a mentor?
If so congratulations. If not have you considered it?
A mentor is an untapped resource for many people. And one many of us cannot afford to miss out on.
Entrepreneurs, especially those that are still young have a tendency to seek business advice from their friends. And while this may be comforting and reaffirming you daily- its the last thing that is needed. See, a friend is always going to say what you want to here. In business a mentor is a better bet- they will tell you what you NEED to hear. That one advantage is tremendous. As the mentor isn’t close to you or part of your direct circle they are less likely to hold back. You may dislike the answers you get, heck you may hate some- but they will work.
So I bet your asking- well fine. You’re right buddy- but who do I get as a mentor? What would work? Better yet who?

A mentor doesn’t have to be from your line of work or business niche. They could be a realtor to your silver business. A mentor in your chosen niche is a great thing but not always the mentor you need. Any mentor that will put in the time is worth it. Most of the possible mentors you will seek out will be business people and odds are they will be entrepreneurs. Better yet, they SHOULD be Entrepreneurs. They may be professional entrepreneurial advisors or just the local rich guy who fought to the top. The mentor can fill in the gaps and point you in the direction you need and helps you see what you might be missing. We all miss things, hey we are human. And a seasoned vet that can get you to see these is like a gold mine in your backyard.

A few more key points:
-Make sure your mentor is literally successful. Not the guy who talks circles around people and sounds real smooth.
– Be sure that their personality matches yours. You want to be able to pick up on how they get it done and if your way too different, it won’t work.
-Make sure they have the skill set too match as well. If they don’t have the skills you need or a way to refine the ones you have its likely you’re wasting their time and yours.
-To find the mentor you Need, fan out. Ask your friends and coworkers for advice. Attend your businesses get together’s and industry events. There’s a great chance the mentor you need is right in front of you and you.
