Earn More Money in Your Home Business by Creating a PIGWritten by Glen Jansen
If you really want to earn more money with your work at home business, than you need to strongly consider adding a P.I.G. Obviously, I am not referring to questionably adorable pot bellied pig that many fine people have adopted for a pet.
The concept of adding a Passive Income Generator to your business should be a top priority if you want long term income.
What exactly is a Passive Income Generator?
As names suggests, a P.I.G. is a product, system or service that will pay you and your company long after it has been implemented. In fact, ideal P.I.G. is one where you do work once and it pays you over and over and over with little to no maintenance on your part.
An example of a P.I.G. could be a book, an audio CD, a patent, licence to use your idea, a service that you contract out, and much more. Let's take a book as an example. You diligently research, compile, write, edit and proofread your book. Depending on who you are this may take you anywhere from 14 days to 14 years. Once work has been done, a publisher will usually help with marketing and promotion of book. Once all that has happened, you author are left with a passive income generator that will keep selling books while you sit on sat enjoying your margarita.
Making money with a P.I.G. has become so much more important with acceptance of internet commerce. Today, there are some amazingly quick, simple and inexpensive ways of creating a P.I.G.. As an example, take a pay per click advertising campaign. This type of a business revolves around driving traffic from search engines at a small cost to a sales site. Once at site, automated software can take browser by hand and market and market product until a sale is made. If product is virtual like software or an e-book, no human ever needs to get involved in transaction (other than buyer).
Are Your Hang-Ups Standing in the Way of Your Success?Written by Meredith Gossland
There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of books published that tell people how to sell, how to market things, and how to succeed in business but I have found that no amount of skill teaching can help, if a person doesn't look closely at their personality and hang-ups first. Self sabatoge is # 1 enemy of people looking for success.
The business battlefield is littered with victims of self inflicted wounds. Most have a knife in back and a dislocated shoulder from reaching back and stabbing themselves so many times. We come into world with a clean slate but by time we are ready to go into business world we have developed behaviours meant to deal with problems in life that, in fact, keep us from dealing with problems in life.
Procrastination is one of these horrible hang-ups, and it is so common that people tend to accept it as normal behaviour.
Quiting is another, and people can create thousands of reasons why they should quit before reaching success. In reality this is just another hang-up born of feelings and emotions.
Door-mat behaviors also leave people sitting at bottom of well wondering why they can't rise to top, while others are using them as stepping stones to success.
