3 Tips for Starting Your Business in 2015

conniewalkingWalk with me to the edge of success.  Let me lead you by your hand down the path of creativity, through business start up and growth.

Running and operating your own business doesn’t have to be all trials and tribulations.

It can be a wonderful personal growth experience, especially if you have the right business model from which to operate.

That’s where I come in.  Stick with me and you will learn so many wonderful things about how to do it correctly, saving you lots of stress and headaches later. First things first:

1.  BE A VISIONARY ENTREPRENEUR!  Start with your vision or idea that you know will fill a need for a specific target audience.  Research the psycho-graphics; what makes them tick; what do they buy; where do they shop; but most important– What problem do they have that isn’t being solved?  If you can solve their problem, you have a customer!

2.   BUILD YOUR NETWORK OF PERSONAL VISIBILITY!  It’s not just about your business and what it can do for your customer.  It’s as much about who you are as a person, i.e. your integrity, your ability to be flexible, your compassion and how you treat others’ ideas when brought to the table, whether it be on a Board, volunteering, teaching, or just plain interacting with people generally.  You leave your mark. You want that mark to be memorable in a positive way. So be the best you can be in all areas of your life.  If you follow this rule everyday, watch what  happens when you begin to promote your business.  People buy from people…

3. BRAND YOUR COMPANY NAME-PRODUCT-PROGRAM!  If you are ready with the name of your company, begin bringing it up in conversations.  It doesn’t matter if you have your products finished yet or your idea completely fleshed out.  The more you talk to people about it, letting those you talk to know that you are still in the development stages of your product or program, the more practiced you will be in incorporating keywords into your next conversation that addresses their problem.  That’s one way to do primary research.  Let those you talk to tell you what their hot buttons are, what problems they need solved, etc.

Grow Rich In Your Business While You Sleep – Lesson 1

moneylady2Most of the fears, phobias, complexes and inhibitions you carry throughout your life were implanted in your minds as a child.  You are what you will become. What do I mean by that?

Starting with your childhood and the beliefs, emotions and actions you take then, bring you where you are today.  These beliefs, emotions and actions set the stage for how you see your success or failures unfolding.

Ah! You are now probably berating yourself and those who influenced you as a child. Not to worry!  Here is how you start to change it.

  1. Be awake as you go about your day, i.e. be conscious when you shower, dress, eat, feed the pets, walk the dog, or get the kids out the door for school.
  2. Be aware that if you live in a hypnotic fog or have your mind on the past, you have no presence! LET ME REPEAT.  IF YOU LIVE IN A HYPNOTIC FOG – doing things automatically with or without thinking; or CONSTANTLY HAVE YOUR MIND ON THE PAST – YOU HAVE NO PRESENCE.
  3. Having no “PRESENCE” means people see you in a fog or see you as you see yourself, IN THE PAST – worrying and commiserating about things that have already come and gone. How can you focus on building income if you are stuck in the past?  Be in the present and focus on your creative process.  After all, you made it this far didn’t you?
