Five top tips to starting a successful business

 

The fastest way to receive is to give, because giving starts the reciprocal action of receiving. We all receive according to how much we give. Give the best of you everywhere you go. Give a smile. Give thanks. Give kindness. Give love. Your giving should be a giving without expectation of return – a giving for the sheer joy of it. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne The Secret… bringing joy to billions

This message is from one of the greats in the world of successful business people Sir Richard Branson

As LinkedIn is a business that started in a living room, much like Virgin began in a basement, I thought my first blog on the site should be about how to simply start a successful business. Here are five top tips I’ve picked up over the years.

1. Listen more than you talk

Busy-more-than-one-phone_thumb3We have two ears and one mouth, using them in proportion is not a bad idea! To be a good leader you have to be a great listener. Brilliant ideas can spring from the most unlikely places, so you should always keep your ears open for some shrewd advice. This can mean following online comments as closely as board meeting notes, or asking the frontline staff for their opinions as often as the CEOs. Get out there, listen to people, draw people out and learn from them.

2. Keep it simple

You have to do something radically different to stand out in business. But nobody ever said different has to be complex. There are thousands of simple business solutions to problems out there, just waiting to be solved by the next big thing in business. Maintain a focus upon innovation, but don’t try to reinvent the wheel. A simple change for the better is far more effective than five complicated changes for the worse.

3. Take pride in your work

Believe-with-all-of-your-heart-that-[2]Last week I enjoyed my favourite night of the year, the Virgin Stars of the Year Awards, where we celebrated some of those people who have gone the extra mile for us around the Virgin world. With so many different companies, nationalities and personalities represented under one roof, it was interesting to see what qualities they all have in common. One was pride in their work, and in the company they represent. Remember your staff are your biggest brand advocates, and focusing on helping them take pride will shine through in how they treat your customers.

4. Have fun, success will follow

If you aren’t having fun, you are doing it wrong. If you feel like getting up in the morning to work on your business is a chore, then it’s time to try something else. If you are having a good time, there is a far greater chance a positive, innovative atmosphere will be nurtured and your business will flourish. A smile and a joke can go a long way, so be quick to see the lighter side of life.

5. Rip it up and start again

If you are an entrepreneur and your first venture isn’t a success, welcome to the club! Every successful businessperson has experienced a few failures along the way – the important thing is how you learn from them. Don’t allow yourself to get disheartened by a setback or two, instead dust yourself off and work out what went wrong. Then you can find the positives, analyse where you can improve, rip it up and start again.

Be a successful Business person it is what you deserve, Networking or another type of business, all is available to those who work at their ideas..

 

A burning desire to be and to do is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off.
Many years ago, the commencement speaker at a prestigious university asked all members of the graduating class who had a definite plan for their lives to hold up their hands. As he looked around the room, only three hands were raised. Twenty-five years later, when the class held a reunion, the combined net worth of those three individuals exceeded that of the remainder of the class. People who know where they are going, always achieve far greater levels of success than those who merely drift through life, expecting circumstances to create opportunities for them. Successful people create their own opportunities by focusing on goals with an intensity that borders on obsession. In this way, every action moves them toward their goal. Napoleon Hill

Selling to people who haven’t bought yet

The portion of the population that haven’t bought from you or your competition yet is not waiting for a better mousetrap.

They’re not busy considering a, b and c and then waiting for d.

No, they’re not in the market. They don’t believe that they have a problem that’s worth the time and money they think it’s going to take to solve it.

As a result, smart marketers don’t market to this audience by saying, "hey, ours is better than theirs!"

If this group thought that they had a solvable problem, the would have solved it already.

No, they won’t respond to a better-than-them pitch. Instead, they’re much more likely to respond to a new statement of their problem and a new statement of the solution. Don’t ask them to announce that they were wrong when they decided that they didn’t need a tablet, a survival kit or an anti-impotence drug. Instead, make it easy for them to make a new decision based on new information.

 

The easiest and the best

The easiest customers to get are almost never the best ones.

If you’re considering word of mouth, stability and lifetime value, it’s almost always true that the easier it is to get someone’s attention, the less it’s worth.

 

If you think that’s what we want, why don’t you give it to us?

The sign in front of the breakfast bar at the hotel says, "from garden to table."

Really? Virtually every item I see has been processed four times, steamed, stored and steamed again.

Marketing pitches are finely tuned to resonate with the audience in mind. Too often, though, the marketer is only in charge of the pitch, and someone else in the organization has to make the thing.

So the marketer brags about how tasty the food on the airplane is, or how reliable the cell phone service is or how magically transporting the aromatherapy of the soap is–and then someone else, someone under different pressures and constraints–has to deliver. And they rarely do.

They rarely do because the paying customer isn’t their customer. Their customer is the quality control department, the accounting department and the "don’t-rock-the-boat" department.

Marketers need to spend less time making promises and more time keeping them.

 

The future of our economy lies with the impatient. The linchpins and the artists and the scientists who will refuse to wait to be hired and will take things into their own hands, building their own value, producing outputs others will gladly pay for. Seth Godin

Quote of the Day:
We need not all agree, but if we disagree, let us not be disagreeable in our disagreements. –Martin R. DeHaan

Amnesty for latecomers

“But what will I tell my neighbours?”

Once someone makes a decision about your cause or your product or your resume, it’s almost impossible for you to persuade them that they were wrong. You’re no longer asking them to remake the first decision, you’re asking them to admit an error, which is a whole other thing.

Compounding this, organizations often make it awkward for someone who is trying to come around to be embraced, largely because the tribe is hurt that they were rejected in the first place.

The opportunity is to encourage the non-supporter to look at new information and make a new decision. Give them the story they need to tell their colleagues. “Well, I know that I always thought this brand was a cult and I said I would never use them, but then I saw their new product line. They’ve listened to all the stuff I said was wrong and fixed it…”   Read the book on “Network Marketing” for a guided route, to your Business decision.

“Set higher standards for your own performance than anyone around you, and it won’t matter whether you have a tough boss or an easy one. It won’t matter whether the competition is pushing you hard, because you’ll be competing with yourself.”  Rick Pitino Basketball Coach, Author and Speaker

Finally accept  and celebrate the newcomers, DO not to bring up their past statements and wave them in their face, otherwise you will alienate them forever from anything, the human race  does not forget easily nor do they move forward without  the support of a partner in business or a loved one.  Seek advice from a Mentor with A Servant’s Heart be prepared to learn and provide for those around you.

It is important to remember that it is your thoughts and feelings together that create with the law of attraction, and you cannot separate them. Also remember that it’s your feelings that are summing up your overall frequency and telling you what you are creating in this moment.   So how are you feeling right now? Could you feel better? Well then, do what it takes right now to feel better.

Networking and Internet Life style by Mike Sherratt

PMA added..

The networked revolution is creating huge profits, significant opportunities, and a lot of change. What it’s not doing is providing millions of brain-dead, corner office; follow the manual middle class jobs. And it’s not going to. Seth Godin

An Internet Lifestyle means that you are able to live life on your terms. Simple as that.                                                  If you are reading this it means that you’ve looked at your life (and the current business you run), and you’re not even close to financial security – let alone freedom – and you keep asking yourself: “Isn’t there a way to change my life?”                 Don’t be perturbed – there is a way out of every ugly situation IF you know a certain few things.

Earning six figures annually online is not unrealistic – it’s actually doable and entirely attainable.  Thus, I want to give a wake-up call to your inner entrepreneur to rise above the fray and begin to create the future you really want.

The greatest enemy of man is himself. If you could break loose from your inner thoughts that tell you success is far off, then there is no mountain anywhere you cannot climb. In fact, most of the things you’ve been taught about money are false.

What do I mean?                                                              The cliché that you should go to school, study and get a good job afterwards (along with a  bag of benefits) is a limiting factor. We’re living in the information age, where a single idea can settle a man or woman financially for the rest of their lives. Academic qualification has its place in this world, but not necessarily in the areas of making money and touching lives around the world.

I think the real education is outside of academic institutions. The real education you need is right where you are – in your environment: the people, events, news, technology,  communication, business start-ups, etc. You can learn so much more from the above mentioned channels than in the four walls of a  university.

4 Tips to creating an Internet Lifestyle and saving you a ton of frustration!

1. All frustration is the result of the lack of a system: Finding a proven business system is the most lucrative step you can take towards making a dream come true. When properly approached, it’s going to make your success “sure-fire.”. Those who live the Internet lifestyle today have specific, high-powered systems, not mere business enterprises.

2. Find an Already Successful “Real World” Mentor: Find someone who is already achieving the results that you want in a specific business and see if he or she would be willing to mentor you a few hours a month. If you could do this on your own you would have already done it. Trust me, you need a mentor.

3. Stop Hanging Out With Turkeys: Take a look around you and you will notice that your income is likely that of your ten closest friends and influences. It’s time to stop hanging out with the turkeys if you want to soar with the eagles. You will never outperform your self image and if you don’t believe in your heart that you are worth six-figures, you will never command it into being.

4. Persist Beyond Exception: A system is what guarantees financial freedom. A system stays even when the business is gone. Don’t make the mistake of chasing silver bullets or “get rich quick” solutions. Stick with your plan and perfect your system. You will always come out ahead.Over the next few days we will dive into each of these individually.

So when you feel that the law isn’t working for you because you don’t have what you want, realize that the law is responding to you. You are either attracting what you want or you are attracting the absence of what you want.   The law is still working. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

From The Secret Daily Teachings

It is so important that you are grateful for everything in your life. Many people focus on the one thing they want and then forget to be grateful for all the things they have. Without gratitude you cannot achieve anything through the law of attraction, because if you are not emanating gratitude from your being, then by default you are emanating ungratefulness. Be proactive and use the frequency of your being to receive what you  want.                       May the joy be with you,                                                                    Rhonda Byrne  The Secret… bringing joy to billions

 

For a goal to come true:                                                                    You must write it down, make it specific and give it a dead line; you must look at it every day; you must understand and pay the price; you must have a plan to start with… Gray Lawrence
