Missing Profits By 12 InchesWritten by Robert Holladay
I remember when I first began trying to build an on-line business. I was very BLESSED to meet a fellow, that has now become my mentor and best friend. I was so GREEN, to Internet world, I didn't know an auto responder from a whole in ground, so to speak...hehe, he really had his work cut out for him.
I kept in touch with my friend everyday, through email and Icq, asking questions, until he finally taught me enough, that I began asking RIGHT questions. But I remember FRUSTRATION I felt when he would send me exact same ad he was using,and had gotten a tremendous response with it , but when I used it, I would get ZILCH NADA , NIL !! I couldn't figure out WHY I couldn't get a response, with same exact ad he had just received an AVALANCHE of responses with !! I was missing profits by just 12 inches.
Folks, I can honestly say....after being in on-line marketing field for years now, and have trained others to follow my lead, I understand PHENOMENON I experienced and no doubt practically everyone experiences, when first starting out. Wanna know what it is ? I'm glad you asked :o)
If you want to become WEALTHY on outside, you must FIRST become wealthy on inside. I've discovered that you can have all right tools, you can have greatest web site, flash presentations, and best comp plans in place, but if you don't begin to see yourself prosperous in your HEART then you will NEVER be able to effectively communicate to your downlines and to those you sponsor. And you will continue to MISS PROFITS BY 12 INCHES.
Beating The Business BluesWritten by Terri Seymour
Internet marketing is a wonderful business, but if you are like me, there are days when you get really down and just can't seem to get going. This is compounded for some people with Winter Blues. Sometimes sitting in your lonely corner of bedroom or living room, it seems like you are only person on earth. You sometimes feel like you are in a cage and there is no way out! This can also be compounded by a slump in your business sales or successes.
When you feel like this, it is hard to get any work done and can be very counterproductive for you. You must step back, take a break and clear your head.
I have found a few things that can help alleviate these problems and would like to share them with you.
1. Get up and get away from computer for awhile. Even if it is only for 10-15 minutes. Walk around house, stretch your muscles, do a few neck and back stretches. These can do wonders!
2. Take a walk. Get dressed, go outside, breathe in fresh, cool air of winter and take a 30 minute walk. This is one of most invigorating things you can do to clear your head and get cobwebs out. Walking is one activity I would recommend most.
3. Call a friend or family member and talk for awhile. This can also be a great way to lift your spirits and confirm your suspicions that there are other people on this planet! ;-) Chat for awhile and laugh a little. Laughter is a great medicine!
4. Have some fun! Put on some of your favorite music and dance around house for awhile. Let loose and have some fun. Act goofy, crazy or waltz yourself to China. This helps get out some of frustrations and pent up emotions that can cause blues.
