Only The Weak Ones Quit!Written by graham and julie
Continued from page 1
The problem was, six months later, no work. He had visited a couple of owners of small and medium sized businesses to talk over their problems, sorry issues, but he was never retained. He felt that they were either seeing him out of politeness, because they couldn't say no over telephone or because they were trying to pick his brains at meeting rather than pay for his ‘expertise'. David actually met one owner on a number of occasions, including buying him lunch, but to no avail. Lyn, his wife, was getting worried because redundancy cheque had long since disappeared and their savings was going same way. He refused to apply for jobs saying that he knew he was doing right thing. He just hadn't found right company yet. David's sole marketing was cold calling and calling his old network in case they had anything. As months ticked away so did his money, his temper, his relationship and his health. His cold calling got less and less because ‘that didn't work'. He found himself reading more, buying more and more management books and magazines and becoming better organised. He had a great filing system but no work. He decided he needed a web site. So spent hours and hours designing and developing his web presence. Many, many hours not contacting a potential customer because they would now come from web. The months went by, savings got less and less. His wife worked more and more hours to keep ship afloat. You see, David couldn't quit. He couldn't accept that being a management consultant wasn't working for him. Because only weak ones quit. The difference between success and failure is that successful entrepreneurs know when to quit a project and start again. They are not attached to their loss making thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. It is strong, focussed and determined that quit failing ventures before it costs them a lot of money. It is an ego driven myth that only weak ones quit. Graham and Julie www.desktop-meditation.com

A Plan, What a Novel Way to do Business!Written by Dave Jones

Even now I have my mouse hand twitching because an e-mail has just flashed up suggesting that I need training in this evenings affiliate presentation. Well I didn't actually have time to dwell on that when I signed on, so I definitely will need to be doing training. I was hoping to get my auto responder happening next so I hope both can be done. Yeah right, all good in plan but didn't actually count on auto responder payment stalling and just managed to get wind down on training session. Oh how they must hate late entry's. So there you have it. If this is even vaguely familiar to how you're traveling I hope you don't mind my saying, you need help, and big time!
The message then; you thought I got sidetracked didn't you. Do not contemplate starting your business without a plan on how you are going to get things done. There's just an insane amount of detail you've got to get through and you'll never get there unless you plan it out. I mentioned all of above because I finally dragged myself out of forest and started making good headway. You have my whole hearted endorsement on package type deals because that's what I settled on and that's when things started going forwards.
By way, plan comes with website package so once you're up and running with package, rest, as they say, is duplicatable. Don't worry; I'm not trying to sell you plan or even package and I could care less about whether you leave without buying. My point here is that if you're struggling to get started then you have makings of an option here. Stop on by my site if you're even mildly curious to give it a go. I'm more than happy to offer any pointers, but trust me, it's all in plan.
