6. Ambition & Enthusiasm: I have to tell you, I "Hate" very few things in my life, but I absolutely, positively hate working with people that have no ambition for their own company. Ok, so you hired me to come in and consult you on why your company is not going way you hoped it would. I sure would like to see a little positive attitude from you and some ambition to get it going again. It really doesn't matter if you are paying me, don't waste my time by sitting there looking like a lost dog at a carnival. I want to see Fire of Desire in those Eyes! I can consult LOSERS anywhere, there a dime a dozen, I want winners! I want to make Winners! I expect my clients to be Winners! I expect a little Enthusiasm! If you don't have Ambition and Enthusiasm to make your company succeed you can hire all experts in world, but your calling card will always be "Failure". 7. Personality Problems: This can be a wide variety of things from being to shy to being so overbearing that you are intolerable to be around. It can also be connected to racial, religious or political indifferences. These business people, although they may survive (somehow), restrict themselves severely because of their limited opinions and prejudices. Introverts have found a haven on web thanks to "Indirect Marketing" of Internet. I myself have suffered from Bi-Polar disorder all my life, but (finally) with right medication I can successfully function in a day-to-day offline, real-life business atmosphere, whereas before I relied on Internet, as an Introvert might to mask this personality flaw. 8. Poor Health: This is an especially important one again to me and should be especially to anyone spending ample amounts of time at a keyboard. To succeed in any walk of life, you must also succeed with inner life. Be In Good Health! I have just recently hit my 5-month mark since my last cigarette. Getting my weight back down and getting a little more exercise. Not as much as I should but at least a little more. I have to admit, I feel much better. Here is what doctor basically told me. A. If you Over Indulge in anything it can't be good for you, so use some restraint! B. DIET & EXRECISE. C. Don't set your sights so high that you'll fail. D. Get a check up. E. If you're at that keyboard a lot, get a fresh air supply, open a window, even if it's winter! 9. Know When to Get off Pot! I've seen it 100 times and 100 times I'll see it again! "Mr. Smith, It's time to expand". "Mr. Jones, We can double your gross by setting up a new product line and hiring 2 new employees". The Response: "I'm sorry Bill, we're not prepared to take that step right now...” Why I asked.... There were no legitimate reasons often, except basic fears. The fear of trusting consultant and especially, trusting in themselves! This is where lion eats lamb folks. You are your company! Except for consultant who has just spent countless days or weeks investigating your business who would know better than you? Why aren't you taking that next step? Do you have legitimate reasons or are you just afraid to get off pot? 10. Keep It In Your Pants:
I feel need to bring this one up because I see it happening more often as time goes on. Businesspersons getting sexually or personally involved. This is a no-no folks, take it from me! It matters not whether you are single, married or swinging from a tree! Business is business and your personal life is personal; Keep them separate!

How to Succeed -- on Internet or Elsewhere!Written by Nach Maravilla

be a new thing. It may be something that someone else has already developed into a success -- but which you are able to take to higher level. 5. Plan thoroughly. Study every detail of market you're entering. Study your prospects. Study your competitors. If you're starting a business, get a snob address--even if office itself is a hole-in-the-wall. If you do not have a lot of money, create a strong bank reference; borrow from your aunt if you have to. You needn't spend her money. Just have it under your name so you'll look good when your first prospect asks your bank about you. Have a prestigious law firm lined up to serve you. You won't have to pay them till you're doing business and actually using their services. Prepare a complete, clear, attractive, dramatic presentation of your idea to show your prospects. 6. Apply law of averages. Believe in law of probability. It isn't a myth or a superstition. It is a mathematical phenomenon. If you have a good idea and you present it to enough of right people, sooner or later someone will buy. So knock on doors. Market your products relentlessly. Link with similar websites. Continue submitting your site to search engines and engage in promotional activities. Brush off rejections and keep knocking on more doors. On Internet, your prospects or partners are just an email away. 7. Be a winner in advance. Talk success. Look successful; dress part. Make your website look as professional as possible, as if you spent $100,000 creating it. Tell your prospect how your idea will bring him success; make sure that your copy jumps right out of pages. Let your words show that you sincerely expect that success will come to him to; or that he or she utterly needs your product or service. Suddenly he--or somebody like him--will say yes. And you will be a winner.
