I've been very busy. Running my businesses. Rethinking strategies. Planning for next year. How about you? Are you ready for next year? If not, now is a great time to start thinking about 2015. If you have a business, start looking at ways to grow. New products. New delivery options. New promotional strategies. Perhaps even a whole new business venture.
If you don't have a business yet,
there has never been a better time to start one. Thanks to the internet it is
now cheaper and easier to get up and running than ever before.
holding you back? I'm issuing a challenge to all of you right now. Let's make
2016 your year. Each one of us has a choice to make. 2016 is right around the
corner and it's calling to you to change your life. Are you coming or not? Will
you make the choice to join us?
I know many of you will be afraid of
leaving what is familiar and venturing into something that is totally unknown.
Others of you will be excited and challenged at the thought. All of you will be
asked to do things you never thought you could do - contact people, write a
business plan, promote yourself and your business.
What if you decide to
make the choice? What happens next? Contrary to many of the "gurus", there is no
foolproof formula. What works for me may not work for you. I can't do what my
friend Ken McArthur does. I use many of his ideas but I adapt them to my
situation. But there are some steps you can take to increase your chances of
Moving Your Business Beyond the Idea Stage: You have a great business idea. You know it will work and you could finally
fulfill your dream of being your own boss. If only you knew how to get
started. Too many ideas remain just that - ideas. But you can move your
business beyond the idea stage by following these simple steps.
Women Who Rock the Internet: When I first started online, the internet marketing world seemed to be
mostly dominated by men. A 2009 post of the top 10 internet "gurus" of the time
included only 3 women. But what a difference a few years makes! Now women are
claiming their share of the internet in ever-increasing numbers. Meet my
favorite women who rock the internet and see how they can help you do the same.
The Top 10 Internet Marketing "Gurus" and What I Learned From Them: Speaking of gurus, you have heard me preach endlessly about the value of learning from the
"masters" - the experts in your chosen business niche - and following their
lead. But who should you be following?
Finding Your Guru: Starting your own business comes with its share of challenges. You will
make plenty of mistakes along the way. One way to minimize the number of
missteps is to find a good mentor or coach to help you.
