Motivation, inspiration, entrepreneur, karate motto

As an entrepreneur, do you find inspiration and motivation?

Find inspiration and motivation every day

Motivation, inspiration, entrepreneur, karate mottoWhen growing your entrepreneurial mind set it can be difficult to find sources to get inspiration and motivation to stay focused and goal oriented. It is often the case that you are alone in your way of thinking or unique with your idea so that others don’t get what you are trying to achieve. I know, I have been there. Therefore, I want to give you a few tips on what you can do.

 

What I do to get inspiration

Various sources on the web can give me all kind of inspiration and motivation. But it is important to remember that it is the people behind these sources that make the source to be great. They are sharing their knowledge and experience and helping others to grow. It is equally important to have a network and/or a community to participate in. You need the human interaction to become successful. Therefore, I will recommend you some of those as well.

 

Podcasts, a great and easy access to inspiration

I listen very often to podcasts, and one of the ones I follow is Entrepreneurs on Fire. This is a podcast where they chat with other entrepreneurs. You can also get ideas and tips on how to start your own podcasts. You find this podcast either on Itunes if you have a iphone or Stitcher if you have an Android. The page you can find here www.entrepreneursonfire.com.

 

Magazines to expand your knowledge

Other places I look for information, inspiration and motivation is this website www.entrepreneur.com which actively debate all angles from an entrepreneurial mind.

Another online magazine I can recommend for various reading is: www.websitemagazine.com

 

Community are for serious entrepreneurs

Most of all I find that it is important to reach out to people that are like-minded and are aiming to achieve the same thing as yourself and have reached success successfully. In a community it is as important to give as to get, without any disclaimers. You give and you get. Therefore, I recommend the Six Figure Mentors (SFM), that is a community full of entrepreneurs that has a mind-set of giving the world and helping each other. Helping each other to success. The SFM is a unique community for internet/online marketers, if you are curious to learn more about this community, sign up for the next webcast for free.

Blogs give you the opportunity to follow the latest trends

I follow a lot of blogs and I thought that I share two of them with you:

Marketing, channels, campaign

Various Channels For Marketing Is Important

Various Channels For Marketing Is Important

Marketing, channels, campaignAt the point when considering an advertising campaign for products you ought to think of numerous channels to get your message through to your target group. Not just the one spot where your target group will be exposed to the ad physically, for instance in a store. At a store you can show the product, you can give incredible signage, exposure and showcase it in a way that is appealing to your audience, unmistakable an awesome spot. But, begin to think outside the store as well. Consider that you are not just targeting new clients, current clients are as essential. Current customers discuss your business already, and does not need persuasion of quality and are excellent “ads” for your, they will describe your product or service to any individuals that they meet and that they feel need to know about your product or service. It is much less expensive to keep a client than to get a new. Therefore, they are as imperative as new customers. An absolute necessity to your business.

 

Cost effective Marketing Channels

Today we send a ton of messages. Utilize this.

Make an e-signature with the message of a campaign. Realize that many individuals that you email often, will get exposed to the message, again and again, numerous times. Some email programs additionally permit you to connect pictures in banners to websites and that is a genuine chance to get your message out. Just connect the picture to a page on your website where you additionally enlighten your audience about the campaign. There you display the product and get the customers to sign up for more information, adding your customers to a list. You do not just drive activity to your website, you also gather subscribers of individuals to your list that you KNOW are interested in your product or service and WANT to get in contact with you. It is called Attraction Marketing, your customers are coming to you, not you who need to persuade them to buy your product or service. Also, it gives you the possibility to send them more value later on.

 

Web banners for a campaign

Another simple approach to get current customers to know about your current campaign is to have a web banner on your site. You let them know about a offer and then they can make a choice at that moment, choose if they want to know more about the product and click to the campaign site for more information. If you want to take it further, you can advertise in a digital newsletter or newspaper with the same web banner and get exposed to even more potential customers and get traffic to your website to expose them to the campaign webpage.

 

Flyers or pamphlets

A more costly option is to make flyers to your present or wished customers. This is a long shot, however the fact is that you don’t know what number of customers truly are interested in your offer. You can not measure it as easily. Furthermore, the postage is excessive.

You can likewise send newsletters, however make sure to send it out in digital form to be cost efficient. Benefit of that is also that you can measure the number of individuals that have read your offer. Quantifiable objectives are constantly extraordinary to get. Keep in mind to dependably keep your newsletter clean and tidy, too much information is not fascinating.

Don’t forget you can also write press releases on new products that can help your surroundings. You can read more in my previous blogpost about how to write press releases that get published here.

 

Resources that you can use for your campaign

It is not that difficult to make incredible banners. I truly recommend a site called www.canva.com. There you can choose and pick layouts, get pictures and compose incredible content for free or at almost no cost.

 

I wish you all luck in your campaigns and hope that you will succeed in your business.

The Globe, Earth, Changes, Opportunities lies ahead

The world is changing – are you tagging along…

The world is changing – stop tagging along!

The Globe, Earth, Changes, Opportunities lies aheadJust the other day I was exposed to a video clip from the British news about changes the British bank HSBC is making, which is letting a lot of people go within two years. It made me think how vulnerable we are in today’s traditional economy.

The clip was talking about the explosion of the digital age and how it is affecting the
world around us. We need to get prepared and adapt to the changes that comes with
the digital age and digital economy. We need to see opportunities that we all are
surrounded by.

Here you can read the article and/or see the clip about the HSBC bank

 

Get prepared and look for opportunities

You know, these world changing changes can affect us all. Companies need to adapt
and take advantage of the digital age, so why shouldn’t you when the opportunity
lies in front of you?

 

Anyway, here’s why I bring this up:

Just like jobs being lost… there are FINANCIAL changes — which can happen
ANY time and (if history is any indication) unleash miseries galore on the unprepared.

Here are some ways a friend once sent me to prepare for changes.
And, if you’re really sharp, PROFIT from them:

 

Multiple Income Streams
Having just one income stream is DANGEROUS right now.
If that’s you, then you could do worse than building a second (and
third) one as fast as humanly possible.

The SFM is a great option (if you qualify):
Learn more about the SFM here

 

Think Negatively
I’m talking about this wise old adage:
“Hope for the best, expect for the worst.”
That may make some of the more “militant” positive thinking gurus
weep and gnash their teeth. But it’s a great way to prepare you for
life’s curve balls.

 

Stay Awake
Opportunities ABOUND right now.
If you’re awake, you’ll see them.

 

Don’t Lean On Politicians
Pinning your fate to a politician (or party) is a bad idea.
It’s why so many people are broke.

 

Know Your History
Many smart folks got rich in the last depression.
Find out what they did, and then rinse, lather and repeat.
(Hint: They started a business!)

 

Sharpen Your Skills
Negotiation “guru” Jim Camp said it best: “The more effective we are,
the more respected we are.”
Good deals often chase people who excel at what they do.
(And not the other way around)

 

Learn To Sell
Selling is the world’s HIGHEST paid profession.
Those good at it are always in demand.

 

Are you making any changes in your life?

However, let’s face it, selling isn’t for everyone. So the next best thing is to find a
home-based business that does lots of the selling for you (like the SFM, for example):

I just wanted to show you how the world is changing today and that we need to stay alert.

Networking, Success, Network, Carina Asp

Networking gives you success and is powerful

Meeting wonderful people can change your turn of direction, make sure you are networking.

Networking, Success, Network, Carina AspMeeting wonderful people can change your life. Have you ever experienced that you connect with someone instantly?
The other day I was attending a course that I travelled a long way to attend. I hadn’t even been there for a minute when I met a wonderful woman. I don’t know why or how it happened, but all of a sudden we talked about life changing decisions that had made an impact on us forever and attitude that will help you improve your life. Five minutes had not even gone and here I was, talking to a perfect stranger about decisions that has changed my way of thinking about life. Amazing.

This woman was older than me, but we found out that we lived in the same city, in the same part of the country and had the same way of thinking. Both of us are entrepreneurs. We also started to talk about networks and communities; How important it is to meet people in real life and not only in forums over the web. We spoke about the importance and benefits of helping each other instead of just looking after your “own house” so to speak. We had so much to talk about and we had so many values that we shared, that I know that we can move mountains if we started to work together. I was amazed. This woman truly is amazing. We decided to meet again.

I find that it isn’t that often that you meet these kind of people. They do not “grow on trees” so to say. It was overwhelming and at the same time it made me so happy to see that these people do exist.

Networking in real life to reach success

Let me get back to the issue of the importance of meeting/networking in real life.
When you are striving towards a goal and you do not have any person/people around you that understand and/or support what you are trying to achieve, it can be unnecessary hard work. A lot of work! It can drain your energy and get you off track, and have you move away from fulfilling your dream. You need someone to juggle ideas with, you need support, and you need people around you that has succeeded with what you are trying to achieve before you, in order to reach your own success. Through networking you meet people that has learnt the process that you are going through and inspire you to move closer towards your goal and/or dream. People that are willing to share their experience and success to help you. These people you find in communities, networks and forums. Seek them out.

Social media and and successful networking

Of course, social media has given us many possibilities to connect with different people and networks all around the world. Networking is powerful. Truly powerful. To meet in person, we meet up anywhere in the world, through webinars, go-to-meeting, chat apps etc. You now have the possibilities that weren’t thought of ten years ago. You can easily connect with someone on Skype after having met someone in a social forum in social media. This is all good, being able to meet with people that are likeminded will help you grow, give you that special energy that you need some times to get yourself inspired to move forward, closer to your success.

By joining communities and networking, you not only grow yourself, you help others grow as well through sharing your own experiences. You are not lonely and you get a feeling of belonging as we humans need to feel.

Help people around you, and you will reach success

The people that share their experience or journey to success in networks help you grow, and by sharing their knowledge they are helping others which for example could be you. This way, it is only natural for you to then help someone else and “paying it forward” to someone that are in those shoes that you ones where in. A natural network are conformed.

Networking Basics:

I am a part of a wonderful community that do networking in real life every now and then, all around the world. This is a network for entrepreneurs that are on a mission to live their dream. This community, The Six Figure Mentors, is international and a sharing community that help other members to grow, both personally and in business.
