If It Were Easy

Written by Julann L Pontician


Starting and owning a business is just plain HARD! From this word HARD I give you three more words to describe starting and owning your own business:

H A nxiety R isk D emanding

Why do I leave out H you ask? Because therein liesrepparttar contradiction. The H stands for Happiness. Happiness isrepparttar 117583 core reason why most (if not all) people start a business. We entrepreneurs truly believe owning our own successful business isrepparttar 117584 key to our happiness. We revel inrepparttar 117585 challenge of conquering new problems and learning new things. We loverepparttar 117586 flexibility of having our own schedule and ďthe buck stops hereĒ control. Ultimately, we believe our business will berepparttar 117587 key to future financial security. Security that far surpasses what any other employer could ever give us.

Getting to that point is another matter all together. Did I quit my job, max out my credit cards and borrow money from my parentís retirement thinking it would be this hard? NO WAY! After four years of working as my own boss, my experience has been (myself included) that most people expect their businesses to be successful right away just because they have a great idea. I assumed just havingrepparttar 117588 guts to quit my good paying job would guarantee me success as an entrepreneur.

Learn this chant: Itís HARD, itís HARD, itís HARD! As an entrepreneur, you should expect to be put through a Chinese water torture of experiences. You will on any given day: second guess yourself, doubt your abilities, wake up inrepparttar 117589 middle ofrepparttar 117590 night with your head full of things you havenít gotten done, waste money and time on things you thought were a good idea and feel utterly alone and unsupported.

Are you a frustrated entrepreneur? You haverepparttar desire, enthusiasm, business skills and passion you will need to be a huge success, but there is one major obstacle blocking your way -- what do you sell?

You are not alone. The top concern of most budding entrepreneurs is finding high-profit, easy-to-ship products they can market for fast profits. You will be amazed to know that you can have your own hot selling product in days by packaging information you already have. Want to know how?

Here are three powerful techniques you can use right away to develop your own hot selling product ideas, whether they lead to books, reports, newsletters, audios, videos, workshops, courses or subscription-based web sites. Successful entrepreneurs such as Yanik Silver, Marlon Sanders and Corey Rudl have used these techniques, now you can use them too.

Success Tip #1: Package information about your hobby. Hobbies are rich sources of hot selling information products. Why?

∑ You have intimate knowledge of your subject matter ∑ You have a deep understanding of what other hobbyists will want to buy - because you want it too! ∑ Passion and interest will make this fun, not work ∑ Your personal experiences and hands-on knowledge will add credibility and value to your information ∑ You know your audience. This gives you a tremendous advantage positioning your products ∑ You know how to access your market, because you are already there. ∑ You are committed to this market, because itīs what you love to do

There have been many hot selling information products developed based on this technique including a book on horses, an electronic book on gardening, a super successful web design book and many others.

Why not profit from your fun?

Success Tip #2: Develop a product based on your career knowledge. Ironically, many entrepreneurs looking to escape their jobs overlookrepparttar 117582 fact that they have gained substantial knowledge, experience and contacts into their career space.

Itīs not necessarilyrepparttar 117583 market you hate about your jobs, but ratherrepparttar 117584 limits current employment places upon you. Try altering your perception and think as if you are an expert in your career market. What problems need to be solved? What do people really want in that market space? What types of information did you seek out when you were employed in this area? Put yourself inrepparttar 117585 place of your customers, what would they pay any price for?
