Have you been having a tough time getting your business to be profitable? Or perhaps you’re experiencing some difficult financial pressures.
What do you think is causing the problem? Circumstances? The economy? Someone else’s actions? The weather?
Here’s a clue: Your business does not exist separately or apart from you. You create it from ideas and actions stimulated by your thoughts, beliefs and emotions. In other words, your business is an extension of you.

In the last newsletter, I talked about recognizing your unique strengths and limitations so you can choose a path to success that is tune with who you are.
The question really boils down to why is one person successful and another can’t create the life they want no matter how hard they try?.
If you’ve been following my work for any length of time, then you know I believe that our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors determine the outcome of our life stories. But also involved in your ability to succeed is how you make your decisions.
For the past three months, I have been studying and learning to apply the work of Robert S. Hartman, who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his ground-breaking discovery about how people make their decisions. Hartman showed how a person’s capacity for making effective decisions when dealing with problems challenges and opportunities can be measured scientifically. Read more
Last week, I watched a video by a high-powered Internet marketer as he pitched yet another make-money-quickly program. His superior sales skills made his program sound super enticing.
A main point in his presentation was that since he made big money using his system, so can you. Statements like that really push my buttons.
Why? Because it’s just not true.
Building a healthy revenue stream is a specific talent that requires business skills such as planning, marketing, and financial management or the ability to manage people who have these skills. In addition, certain personality traits are required for success including drive, ambition, self-confidence, a positive mindset, and the willingness to take risks.
If you have a really good business idea or a talent for helping people in one way or another, but you’re missing these business skills or personality traits, or if you have trouble communicating your ideas, success can allude you. One more program or certification is not going to guarantee your happiness or wealth.
How You Can Live YOUR Dream for Success
Each person has a unique combination of talents, beliefs, and emotions that stimulate their behaviors and the choices that they make. Understanding how your unique mixture of internal traits work in concert with your skills and experience can help you choose a path to success that is in tune with who you are. Read more
Networking is probably the most effective and least expensive marketing method you can use to build your business or practice, especially if you do business in your local area.
A lot of business owners and practitioners I talk to say that they don’t like to network or they haven’t found it to be effective. That’s probably because they don’t know how to do it or they may have unrealistic expectations about the timing of results.
I do a lot of networking both online and off. As a natural people person who likes to talk, networking is relatively easy for me. But even if you’re a bit on the shy side or have reservations about the potential for success with networking, you can gain value from this activity if you follow certain guidelines.
Here are some tips that can ensure your networking success. Read more
