How to Set SMART Goals

One of the best ways to guarantee goal-setting success is to ensure that each of your goals fits the SMART formula.

SMART is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. When your goals have these characteristics, you are much likelier to achieve them.

Goal Setting Success

 Setting short term, medium term, and long term goals for yourself is a key to success in your life. If there are things that you want to achieve or ways that you want to grow, set goals. See them as the stepping stones, an important part of getting there.

 Follow this strategy to set SMART goals:
    1. SMART goals are Specific. This means that your goal should be numbers based, or have a specific goal in mind. A smart goal may be “Go from 165 pounds to 155 pounds,” or “Touch my toes without bending my knees.” Both are specific goals without any vague phrasing left open to interpretation. 

      • The more specific your goals are, the clearer it will be when you finally achieve them.
      • Break your large goals into smaller short-term and medium-term goals. Each smaller goal phrased just as specifically in order for them to be attainable and achievable.
    2. SMART goals are Measurable. This is another reason why smart goals are numbers based. To know whether or not you achieved a goal, you must be able to measure your progress. SMART goals are goals that you can track and measure that have a clear end or point of attainment.

      • Being able to measure your progress is really important in goal setting and goal achievement. It helps you determine whether or not you’re moving in the right direction. It helps to clearly track and measure both positive and negative progress along the way.
    3. SMART goals are Attainable. Smart goals are goals that you can actually attain. They’re not extremely farfetched goals like “Lose 100 pounds in 90 days,” because if there’s no way to achieve the goal, why set it? SMART goals are goals that you’re physically and mentally capable of achieving.
    4. SMART goals are Realistic. SMART goals are not only attainable, but they are realistically attainable. They are a combination between a specific achievement that you can reach and a time frame that realistically coordinates with that achievement.

      • For that reason, a SMART goal would be “Lose 10 pounds in 90 days,” for a healthy weight loss of 3 to 4 pounds per month, rather than “Lose 10 pounds this week.”
    5. SMART goals are Timely. Smart goals have time frames, and realistic ones at that. When you put a realistic time frame on your goal, it gives you something to work for. To simply “Lose 10 pounds,” without a time frame lacks motivation. “Lose 10 pounds by my birthday” has a realistic time frame that gives you something to work for and a date for completion.
Bottom Line

Setting SMART goals is the best way to guarantee success at setting and achieving goals for what you want in life. By setting goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely, you can and will achieve the success you deserve!

I have as examples “loosing weight”, because that is something almost everybody can relate too. But to help your business start and grow they are extremely important too.

Your Market Dominating Position (Part 1) – Introduction

A Market Dominating Position – Introduction.

Most businesses become established, because of a market demand for their product or service. Many build their business by serving that demand and enjoy growing profit. And without putting much effort into long term planning or marketing.

But questions arise about how long this kind of success will last…

    • What happens when that demand slows or stops?
    • What happens when the competition sets up shop with a new and improved version of your product down the road?
    • How do you keep your offering fresh?

The answer is simple. While growing and maintaining your client base, innovate your business.  Also offer extraordinary value by creating a Market Dominating Position.

Consider this, every choice a customer makes when buying a product or service, represents a point of differentiation between one company and their competitors. These differences, weather subtitle or distinct, determine which customers will buy what you sell.

I will give you an example. Consider the well documented case of Domino Pizza. Why did Dominos become a billion-dollar behemoth in an overcrowded market in a just a few years?

    • Did Dominos make the best pizza?
    • Did they offer comfortable in-house dining?
    • Did they offer the largest selection on their menu?

The answer to all these questions is “No”.

They did pretty much offer the same pizza as all their competitors. They dominated by adopting and implementing one major strategy. They created a market dominating position in an area with lots of colleges, which was fast hot pizza, targeted specifically for hungry college kids.

Is “Price” the answer to differentiate yourself from the competition?

Ask yourself what makes your business different from your competitors as perceived by your targeted prospects and customers? For most businesses that answer: “Price”.

Many years ago, Nike offered the top selling Air Jordan 3 for $150 a pair. At the exact same time Target sold an exact same and excellent imitation of the Air Jordan for around $40. But Nike outsold them 10 to one.

Starbucks is a popular place to buy coffee in many parts of the world. Their prices aren’t low. According to the latest data their typical customer spends four times more than they would at their competitors.

Obviously low price isn’t the driving force here. So, what is?

The answer? These companies stake out a specific and targeted Market Dominating Position.

Nike focused their position around being the best athlete, being hip and in style, along with the perception of quality.

Starbucks focused on delicious hand-crafted beverages, which they claimed is the secret to making life better.

When you create your own Market Dominating Position, you will consistently get business and individuals to choose your business over your competitors.

What exactly is a Market Dominating Position?

You can define it as “ Any valued-added customer perceived benefit, or a combination of benefits, that differentiates you from competitors and does so in a strong enough manner that it makes your business the logic choice in the minds of your prospects and customers”.

Some people also know it as USP (Unique Selling Proposition).

I will give you an example: A dry cleaner that offers pick-up and delivery would be the only logical choice for any prospect or customer that values convenience. This simple distinction represents a market dominating position.

Another example of added value would be a gift shop owner, that offers complementary gift wrapping with every purchase.

The key to create added value.

Prospects and customers don’t buy based on price. They buy based on the value they receive for the price they pay. Creating added value is a market or customer relation strategy that can take the form of a product or service that is added to your original offer for free or as a part of a discounted package.

Like all the elements in your marketing toolkit, this is designed to attract new customers and retain existing ones.

If you don’t revisit the value of your offer than overtime your customers will be drawn to a competitor who consistently innovates their business, so they offer exceptional value that you don’t. Ultimately your customers will demand additional value for them to remain loyal and they are the keystones for your business growth.

Everyone can add value to their business. And adding value doesn’t have to blow your marketing budget or take off hours of your time. There are many ways to enhance your business.

The key to adding value.

The key to adding value for a customer is providing a feeling of being appreciated and that their needs will be taken care off. Example are:

    • Determining what your customers and target market perceive as valuable. You must understand their needs, wants, troubles and inconveniences in order to entice them with solutions through added value products or services.
    • Adding values will also add to your profits, but you don’t focus on generally helping your clients, you will have a difficult time attracting them.
    • Another example to add value works for both products and service-based businesses.
      • If you offer a service like hair styling, try treating your customers by offering them a latte while they wait.
      • Complementary shampoo samples or a free conditioning treatment with every sixth visit.
      • If you sell a product, consider offering convenient services like free shipping or delivery to make the customers experience a seamless one.

Market Dominating Position (Part 2) – Differentiation

Market Dominating Position – Differentiation

More about what your Market Dominating Position is, is discussed in the previous blogpost “A Market Dominating Position (Part 1 ) – Introduction”

How to differentiate your business from your competitors.

There is a 5-step process to use to set  your business aside from your competitors by creating a Market Dominating Position (Or Unique Selling Point). The 5  steps are:

    1. Find your Strategic Position in the market.
    2. Determine your Primary Market Dominating Position.
    3. Establish your Supporting Business Model.
    4. Create your Market Dominating Position Statement or Elevator Pitch.

Let’s get over them one by one.

  1. Find your Strategic Position in the market.

What specific niche market or segment of the marketplace should your business focus on?

Finding your niche involves combining the skills your business has with the unmet needs of your targeted prospects. And then design your product or service to fulfill those needs.

Examples are:

        • Domino’s Pizza strategic position was fast hot pizza for hungry college kids.
        • Starbucks delicious handcrafted beverages that makes life better.
  1. Determine your Primary Market Dominating Position.

This is the most important step.  This step separates you from your competitors.

For example: Domino’s Pizza claimed it could deliver its pizza in 30 minutes or less or they would give it to you for free. This was the primary advantage that met the needs of their newly defined position. Hungry college kids that wanted food fast.

  1. Establish your Supporting Business Model.

To establish your Supporting Business Model, you must ask yourself the following questions:

    • How will you specifically deliver what your Strategic Position and Primary Market Dominating Position promises?
    • What changes, if any, do you need to consider making to your business, to ensure you deliver constantly on your position and your promise?

For Example: Domino’s Pizza build a supporting business model that enabled them to consistently provide their promised primary advantage, which was fresh hot pizza delivered within 30 minutes.

To make good on that promise every time, they were forced to create a supporting business model where they build low cost, plain vanilla stores, strategically located near college campuses.

And since these college kids weren’t the most reliable workers on the planet, they were forced to hire additional delivery staff and have additional drivers on standby basis.

Together these innovations allowed Domino’s Pizza to consistently meet and often exceed their Primary Dominating Position. And that is what you should aim for too.

  1. Determine your Secondary Market Dominating Position.

Your Second Market Dominating Position will provide you with additional competitive advantages.

The question here is, what  does your business offer that your customers will perceive as being different from your competition?

Back to our example again: Domino’s Pizza secondary benefits might include special prizing, assorted sizes, a much broader selection of toppings or additional menu items.

  1. Create your Market Dominating Position Statement or Elevator Pitch.

An Elevator Pitch is a simple statement that you can create by combining all the previous steps.

A statement like that helps you to say, without any doubt, how you are different from your competitors.

This statement shows your leads and customers/clients, why they should buy from you and not from your competitors.

Example: Domino’s Pizzas Market Dominating Position is neatly summed up in their slogan “Fresh hot pizza delivered in 30 minutes or less or its free”

Now you need to define your Market Dominating Position and then we can help you to create a powerful and compelling elevator pitch that will show your value to your marketplace.

I will discuss more about your Market Domination Position in the following blogposts.

When coaching-offers are “cheap”

Do you think business coach’s should ask at least $1K? Do you think when coaching is offered for less, which makes it affordable for you, it is probably useless and a waste of money?

If this is you, but you are in desperate need of a coach, then let this assumption go. For you and your business. Just because you can not do everything by yourself when you are new to the “running a business”. You may need help!

Read further why……

Let me tell you something about how I see it.

First of all a lower price doesn’t mean cheap or fake or worthless. People who say this about coaches who offer their services for less then $1K, are maybe “overpriced” coaches who see it as a treat or they are “old fashioned” coaches or business owners who are paying a lot of money for their coach. Btw, I am absolutely not saying that these coaches don’t deliver what they are payed for. They probably just earn their money by only offering one-on-one coaching. Nothing wrong with that.

So how can good coaches offer these lower prices?

Welcome to the 21-the century where computers, internet and programs like Zoom are common. Where a lot of coaches (especially nowadays with the COVID epidemic) found out that they are able to offer their services by using these options so they can give you a lower price, but still earning more.

How? Simple. Group-coaching.

The advances of group-coaching are enormously. For instance:

  • For the coach, they can help multiple business owners at the same time by answering the same question once.
  • They save a lot of money and time by going online instead of driving around from one client to another.
  • For the business owners, they hear about resolving problems they didn’t think about yet.
  • Also being a part of a group makes you more motivated to keep going, to do the right things, to not procrastinate.

At least, that is how I do it.

That is why I would like to see you becoming a part of my group.

I want to help the group of business owners like you.

  • The business owners who are not able to hire an expensive business coach.
  • Who are of no interest for these expensive coaches, just because of their lack of money.
  • Who are passionate about their product, but are not entirely clear how to do their business (but they try!!).
  • Who work hard, without seeing much of results. 

And last but not least ….. who don’t mind to be part of a group of people, all with the same goal: Become successful in their business.

Why Do Businesses Fail In The First Year…

An extremely high percentage of business owners give up their dreams of having their own, successful, business within a year after they started. Some manage to keep on struggling till at least 5 years, but eventually these struggling owners throw in the towel too.

There are a lot of reasons why, but what I am surprised about is that the reason isn’t always about the money. There are an entire list of reason. You are probably struggling with one or more of them.

Like overwhelm. “I have so many things to do, I don’t know where to start.”

Or fear, which results in not getting out there or not enough. “I look terrible, I am not making a video”. Or “I got a terrible review. I hate that”

Or imposter syndrome. “There are so many people out there who are way better than I am. That’s the reason why I can’t find clients”.

And these are only 3 of many.

What are you struggling with??

Comment below.

How can you prevent all of this?

You can’t. Simple as that. You will certainly run into them. All of them.

What is more important is how you handle them. How you overcome them. How you overcome your fear. How you get rid of your overwhelm.

So the question is more, what do you do to get over all these temporarily problems? Yes, temporarily, because if you let them become permanently you certainly can give up your business right away.

1. Start with your Mission and your Vision.

These two are extremely important. They show you every day why you are doing what you do and where you want to end. What your goals are.

I like to say, read them every morning, so you are motivated to keep going.

My mission is to help as many entrepreneurs as possible to get a successful business, to earn enough money to create at least a reasonable life for themselves and their family. Just so that they don’t need to go back to their old job. And that they have a legacy to leave behind for their children or be able to sell their business and create an good retirement fund.

I see myself teaching a group of people, discussing a weekly topic and helping to implement them into their business. I see my clients grow and happy to be part of this group.

This keeps me going when I start doubting myself.

2. Create an end goal and focus for a month or a week.

Work towards an end goal, which you need to finish at the end of the month. Or week if it is a small goal.

Don’t make it easy for yourself by creating an easy goal and use the entire month to finish it. You won’t help yourself or your business when you do that.

Cut this goal in small steps. Every week you finish 1 to 3 steps. Not more! And it won’t be a disaster if you can’t finish them all. You can only do as much as you can do.

Every day you make a to-do list of what you have to do to complete that week’s task.

And you also make an not-to-do list. Yes, you read it right. A NOT-to-do list. This will prevent that you get sidetracked by doing minor things you don’t need to do and which only takes time away from the important stuff.

Focus on this one goal for one month to create an habit.

Examples are:

  • Write a blog post once a week and create a post for your social media platforms 3 times that week, all referring and linked to that post.
  • Do a live video about your business 3 times a week. Give them some information about how your product helped a customer or how a customers loved your cookies. Tell a story. Something funny what happened to you. It doesn’t even have to be about your business. By doing video’s your customers learn to know you, who you are as a person. People buy sooner from someone they know, then from a complete stranger with the same product.
  • Create a newsletter.
  • Set up follow-up emails, 2 emails every week, which you can send out when someone became a customer.

3. Get help.

Almost all the business owners who just started their business are trying to do everything by their selves. Yes, I am guilty too. Nobody is perfect.

I created my own website, created my webinars, created courses, set up emails, created all my social media posts. the list went on and on. And everything together took me away from building my list and getting clients.

My general comment was “I don’t have the money to have some one else do it” Sounds familiar??

Funny thing is, if you spend a small amount of money to hire some one to take care of your email a few hours a week, you have these few hours extra time. And I bet that your time will bring in way more money.

For example if you pay a virtual assistant $20 a hour and you use her for 5 hours a week, it will cost you one hundred bucks. If you can use these 5 hours to bring in a new client and you can sell this client your product or service for $200, isn’t that worth the payment of this v.a.?

And it would probably saves you a lot of time and frustration too, because you don’t have always the expertise they have. So they can do twice as much as you can do in the same time!!

4. Get an coach

I know. I am only saying this because I am a coach. But no, that’s not the reason.

A coach can come in all forms and disciplines. Google “coach” and there is an endless list of different kind of coaches, all focused on their own small discipline. Life coach. Sport coach. Success coach. Yes, business coach.

But a coach can also be a good friend. Or your spouse. Or a complete stranger who is part of the same club as you are. A coach can be free. A coach can be payed for.

Most important is that this coach keeps you accountable. Keeps you motivated. Keeps you going. Pushes you when you need to be pushed. Helps you through the tough times when you need that help.

What do I do?

I don’t really see myself as a coach. I see myself as a teacher. I always loved to teach.

And love to help others to stay focused and motivated.

More like the high school teacher, then a modern day business coach. End goal is probably the same though.

I also follow my own e-learning program to help entrepreneurs to build their business step by step. To see them and their business grow and become successful. That make this e-learning special. You are kind of in the classroom and you have an assignment every week.

The 5 Essential Keys To A Successful And Reusable Marketing Campaign Launch.

We’re going to go through the 5 essential keys to a successful and reusable marketing campaign launch. Once you have these basics down, you can use them over and over again.

The 5 essential keys are:

  1. Define your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)
  2. Put an effective sales offer to work
  3. Avoid the marketing pitfalls
  4. Use a world-class marketing perspective
  5. Get results!

We’ll go through each one of these, so you can see exactly how to use them and how they all affect the overall outcome of your marketing campaign.

1. Define your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)

Take the time to ask yourself some questions from the prospective of the customers/clients.

  • What would it take to get your attention?
  • What needs do you have that need to be met?
  • What are the promises you want fulfilled?
  • What is your Market Dominating Position?

Once you know the answers to these questions you can start putting together a plan to meet these needs. Then take a look at what USP your competitors are using to help you develop your own USP. Your USP is what you are “promising” your customers/clients. This is what’s going to set you apart from your competition.

2. Put an effective sales offer to work

To develop an effective sales plan, you need to:

  • Put together a headline that gets immediate attention.
  • Share benefits of your products/services speaking from the customers’ perspective.
  • Identify the specific needs met by your products/services.
  • Make it easy to do business with you by offer guarantees.
  • Share your specific sales proposition.
  • Walk your customers/clients through how they should respond and act.
  • Motivate with a call to action.

What this all means is, you need to put together what makes your products/services special and compel customers to buy. If they don’t feel like they NEED your product, they won’t buy. You need to answer a question, solve a problem or feed an obsession.

You need to provide them with all the information they need to make an informed and confident decision. Buyer’s remorse is something you want to prevent at all cost.

More about Buyers Remorse you can find this blog post: Turn Prospects into Customers Overnight!

3. Avoid the marketing pitfalls

There are 5 major marketing pitfalls many businesses fall into and you should avoid:

  • Ignore market testing and push on with an inaccurate plan.
  • Offer an incomplete case, or reasons, throughout their marketing plan.
  • Fail to notice the needs of their prospective customers/clients.
  • Fail to diversify their marketing options.
  • Fail to get market opinions on their offers.

These are all areas to avoid. If you’ve been working through these lessons, avoiding these pitfalls should be easy and natural.

4. Use a world-class marketing perspective

World-Class marketing perspective is important, especially if you want to attract customers/clients from all over the world. You can do this a number of different techniques and activities:

  • Keep a marketing journal and scribble down anything innovate you see.
  • Keep encouraging your marketing department, or yourself, to try new things and dump the ones that aren’t working.
  • Order from your own company under a different name and analyze the process of ordering, shipping, online store, customer service and the product itself. This will show you where the areas for improvement in the customer experience.
  • Read every quality ad you can find and keep a file for future ideas to consider.
  • When out in public, watch how consumers behave in different situations and how they consider their purchases.
  • Step down a notch or two and work on the front lines with your sales and customer service staff.
  • Continuously acknowledge your staff, vendors and customers. Everyone works and shops better when they feel appreciated.
  • Always listen to feedback from employees and customers.
  • Continuously test markets, ads, and marketing techniques. This is the only way to stay successful and know what’s working and, more importantly, what’s not.
  • Offer more information in your marketing than anyone else. The more information you offer, the more products/services you’ll sell.
  • A great marketing plan can only get better. Continue to fine tune and refine your marketing plan based on testing results and feedback.
  • Be classy in your marketing. Make sure your marketing and advertising fits your company image, products/service and quality.
  • Improve your best marketing areas and drop those that aren’t working.
  • Focus on what you say, not how you say it. The best marketing ideas turn into the best marketing naturally.
  • Develop all your ads, campaigns and sales materials with an attention to compelling and factual information.

By using these techniques you can put your name out there to the world and become one of the top brands in your industry.

5. Get results!

The last area we are going to talk about is the best-satisfied customers. If your customers aren’t satisfied, you’ve wasted all your marketing resources and all chance of positive word-of-mouth advertising. You can satisfy your customers by:

  • Providing quality products/services
  • Providing high quality customer service
  • Providing a low-pressure, highly informative sales experience
  • Taking all the risk away with a great guarantee

To generate more business there are a couple of simple techniques that work every time:

  • Build your database with a contest.
  • Do regular mailings with sales, discounts, or other incentives.
  • Find other creative ways to keep your current customers coming back for more.

Do you know these simple tricks to stay motivated every day? These 8 simple ways are a good start to help you to stay focused and keep your motivation high so you can build a successfull business fast.

If you try to do something great, you’ll inevitably encounter obstacles. The more obstacles you encounter, the more difficult it is to keep your motivation at a high level. In these moments, you need techniques to fuel your motivation engine. Here are 8 simple ways you can supercharge your motivation.

When you focus completely on things you can control, you’ll realize that you can quickly and easily change your situation. For the reason, focus on the things right in front of you. Every day. Don’t waste your time or energy on things out of your control. 

2. Constantly Remember Your Purpose.

What is your big “Why”?? Why are you pursuing a goal or dream in the first place? What is the big, audacious purpose that motivated you to embark on the journey? More time with your family? More money? Getting the dream job? To keep your motivation high, constantly keep your purpose in front of you. Write it down, so you can re-read it every day.

3. Celebrate The Small Wins.

It’s also important to keep the big picture in front of you, but it’s also crucial to celebrate the small wins. Remember, you climb a ladder one rung at a time. You’re reaching your goal one step at a time. Celebrating the small wins will allow you to see the progress you’re making and increase your motivation levels.

4. Act First, Feel Later.

One of the best ways to get your motivational juices flowing is to simply take action. If your goal is to read fifty books in one year, sit down and read a book for five minutes. If your goal is to lose 50 pounds, go for a 10 minute walk. It’s common for motivation to follow action. Once you take the first step, you’ll feel motivated to keep going.

5. Do Visualization Exercises.

By visualizing your goal, you bring the future into the present. As you visualize your dream job and all the benefits it will bring, you’ll feel your present motivation skyrocketing. As you think about what it will be like to double your income, the obstacles you’re facing will melt into the background.

6. Break Your Big Goal Into Small Goals.

Depending on your ability to focus, you may rather have a couple of small goals than one huge goal. So it might be necessary to break up the goal into segments that last anywhere from one week to 12 weeks. This way your brain can experience success and logically see a positive long-term outcome. You’ll procrastinate if the path looks too challenging and to long.

7. Repeat Affirmations Daily.

Affirmations help you believe that you’re going to achieve your goal. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, burned out, or low on motivation, saying things like, “I AM on my way to a healthy body”. This can help you to keep going.

8. Finally Surround Yourself With People Who Motivate You.

This last one is about one of the most effective ways to boost your motivation. Just surround yourself with other people who can motivate you. If you’re building a business, spend time with other passionate entrepreneurs. If you’re working toward a goal weight, join weight loss support groups. You need encouragement and support as you pursue your goals.

These ideas may be simple, but they’re profound. Put these to work in your own life, try them out one by one and watch the success appear before you.

The Do’s and Don’t When Following Your Dream as an Entrepreneur – Before you begin.

Become an extraordinary entrepreneur

Starting your own business is scary and a lot of people are afraid to take the first steps.

You are afraid you have to give up everything, that you won’t have a social life anymore and you will miss out on family time. Or you are afraid that you will loose all your financial security and that you would probably fail. Maybe family or friends will agree that everything will be a waste of time and money.

All this doubt and fear start to creep in and after the initial idea to start that business, your dream is crushed.

But the question you have to ask yourself is, is that the truth?

Stop making excuses for yourself. If you never make that step, you will never know if you will be successful. You know it will take a lot of guts to make that first move and to create that life you always wanted.

You can do it and I can help you!!

There are a couple of things you should do. And of course a couple of things you never should do. I created a serie of blog posts to help you on the way. This is the first one.

The first 3 things you have to look into before you even begin with your business

These are:

  • Do You Understand Your Future Customers.
  • Do You Understand The Economy.
  • Are You ready to start your business.

Understanding Your Future Customers:

Before you tell your boss he can continue on without you, you have to ask yourself if you understand how people think. What would make them want to buy your product. Who will be your future customers. Where are they living. What do they do. What are their interests. You have to decide who your ideal client is going to be. Who your target audience is. And believe me, “the entire world” won’t work.

Understanding The Economy:

Next you need to ask yourself if you understand the economy. What are the trends at this moment. Is your product sell-able? Who is your competition? Are you going to do it all alone or are you dive into it with a partner? Which suppliers are you going to use?

For both the most important thing is, do your research. You love your product, you want to share it with your future clients, but are your future clients waiting for you?

Are You ready:

I absolutely would never want to discourage you to start your own business! But…. before you begin you have to be real honest with yourself. This won’t be an easy path. You will have your ups and downs. It will be scary sometimes, but you also will have a lot of fun on your road to success. It will be hard work. You will fail sometimes, but you will also learn a lot.

Fulfilling your dream is something not a lot of people can say they did, but it will be worth it.

Are you up to the challenge??

If you are ready, I will be ready for you. I can help you take these first steps and help you start. Teach you important and valuable information (without costing an arm and a leg).

You don’t need an MBA to start your dream, you just need some basic knowledge.

    Become an Extraordinary Entrepreneur

    Become an extraordinary entrepreneur

    Do you think that starting an home-business is easy? Do you think that when you work from home money will come in easily?

    Unfortunately both aren’t true. The only part which is easy, is actually starting the business. After that, hard work will be a part of your everyday life, if you really want to be successful.

    You also have to be persistent to keep going. And you have to invest. In yourself and in your business.  And it doesn’t matter what you are selling. If you sell your own products, if you sell products from an Direct Sales company, if you sell from an MLM company, if you are an affiliate.

    “Fast money” doesn’t exist. Some people earn huge amounts of money right away, but only a very few people manage to do that. Earning enough money to stop with your day job will take time. I know that when you start an home business and you become an entrepreneur, you will be able to earn money and even more then average money.

    But to get there you have to change from an average entrepreneur to an extraordinary entrepreneur. 

    Most people are average. I am one of them. Why? Because I love the work I do, but I am also not driven to make it an everlasting activity. I like to do a lot of other things too. I am happy the way everything is going now. I help people with their businesses, and that gives me enough satisfaction, gives me a good feeling.

    But what if I want more?

    To only way to get more is by becoming extraordinary. And when I am ready to make that step, I know I will go for it.

    Making that step isn’t easy.

    • You need the right mindset for it.
    • You constantly have to step out of your comfort zone.
    • You have to learn a lot more about Marketing.
    • You constantly have to make decisions what to do next.

    Are you ready to become extraordinary??
