How Educated Are You?

bigstock-Apple-Word-Cloud-Back-To-Scho-40870060

We know it all

We have all the right answers

Our learning was done the last day we walked out of school

That is narrow-minded thinking!

  • Our brain needs “exercise”
  • Keep growing and learning

When is the last time you listened to a great podcast, grabbed a book or read a blog?

I know talk radio and music can be fun to listen to while driving, but schedule “educational windshield time” each week.

Are You Being A “Business Robot”?

They say that insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results!

• Things not go your way last year with respect to your business or sales territory?

• Have your tried and tested systems brought consistent lack-lustre results?

• Are you becoming less motivated every day, and need some new perspective?

• Have you been diagnosed with the “February Blues“?

Or….

You had a great year, but still want to take your success to another level?

 

GREAT NEWS!

You have come to the right place for inspiration and new perspective for 2015!

Perfection Or Published?

bigstock-Business---1432678
So…..
  • Are you getting a little too cute with blog posts, ebooks or a course that you are waiting to publish?
  • Have you shelved that new training video that just doesn’t seem right?
  • Is that first audio file of your podcast just sitting on the computer “collecting dust”?

 

Many of us strive for perfection, and that is ok in the right circumstances, but not online.

People want to get to know the true you and will come to appreciate your imperfections.

If you keep procrastinating and don’t put your content out there, nobody will get to know the real you!

 

What are you waiting for?

Hit “publish”, “upload” or whatever you gotta do to take action and take the next steps in your business!

 

Enjoy the rest of your week.

 

 

 

What’s Your “Edge”?

bigstock-Business-metaphore-of-staying--26148134

When I started my online journey several years ago I battled uncertainty and doubt early on. Thoughts regularly came up like:

  • So many other people are already excelling in (insert niche)
  • What could I possibly share that hasn’t been discussed before?
  • What value could a newcomer like myself bring to the “party”?

Over time as I gained momentum and started to feel pretty good about things, I certainly realized that I had an “Edge”.

The “Edge” was me. It is specific to my brand and business. No one person is exactly the same as me, nor will my business be exactly the same as anyone else’s.

You have an opportunity to do FANTASTIC things!

  • Let your personality shine. Allow your audience in to your life a bit. Show them who you really are
  • If you are funny by nature, add some humour to your work, but don’t force it
  • Be creative with your content, and do some “outside-of-the-box” things that your audience will start to expect
  • Be you – it is what you know best
  • Be humble, grateful, helpful, accommodating and go-to resource in your niche

Do you want to take your “Edge” to another level? NEVER EVER stop learning!

Check Out Pat Flynn’s “Smart Passive Income”

At some point or another, most people online have thought about the “make money while you sleep” business model. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up in the morning and find out that they made money over night? I sure would.

I have been fortunate to follow some of the biggest names in the industry over the last three years:

  • Eben Pagan
  • Frank Kern
  • Brendan Burchard
  • Gary Vaynerchuk
  • Russell Brunson
  • Jeff Walker

I could go on and on. I recently stumbled upon Pat Flynn from the website “Smart Passive Income”. He is a breath of fresh air in a very crowded internet marketing space.

He lost his job several years ago and decided that he could make a go of it working online with a passive income model. He has worked his butt off to get where he is, and is very open about how much income he makes .

What drew me to him was his podcast. Many episodes have helped me immensely over the past couple of weeks, and I thoroughly enjoyed the episodes featuring another guy “killing it” named Lewis Howes.

Pat’s knowledge and passion for everything from YouTube, podcasting, blogging and networking has been truly inspiring.

I could ramble all day. Just stop by http://www.smartpassiveincome.com and find out how you can enhance your current business model (or get started) with some recurring income.

Oh yeah, you can check him out on Facebook too at http://www.PatOnFacebook.com  (pretty slick hey?)
