Passing good to great

I was recently asked how you move from good to great. I quickly stated, “What do you mean we are great everyone loves us. Do you want to move into excellent? The room became quiet as each of us declares how great we were. The leader posed the question again and this time it caused us to listen. How do you move from good to great? This takes time to evaluate why? Because you must be willing to evaluate strengthens weaknesses organization and trends. Yes, your home base business may be good the clients list is growing and affiliates are working but, there is always room for improvement.

Let’s look at communication how effective are you? What gaps exist within your down-line and up-line? Are you accessible? How many days does it take you to respond to clients? Are you prompted in your responses? What excuses to you use when you’re late with responses? Are you accountable as a leader? Groysberg (2012) suggest, having communication that goes bottom up is just as important as having communication going top up (pp.2). The question becomes where do you see your business in 3 yrs.?

What strategies are in place to improve your business? Re-exam your advertisement strategies venues and platforms is it times to investigate other business platforms? Perhaps adding and expanding will change your businesses growth.  Have you considered video conferencing? Cisco Systems uses video conferencing reaching multiple employees and executives at the same time. This fiber-optic technology “you feel like you are sitting across from these persons (Slind, personal communication, July 23, 2012).

Have you considered teaming up with a business mentor, an expert in the field of business one who understands marketing, advertising strategies, and can point you in the right directions to expose your business. In the upcoming year, exam if your business grow and move upward or slide down the business hip of death. An important business decision should include methods to increase your business growth exponentially, exposure and traffic. Experts recommend looking at your business expenses, evaluate companies that provide similar products and services watch for trends and build a uniqueness that moves you towards a great business. This is the season to remain hopeful preparing the way for a new and exciting venture could move your business from good to great. Wishing you all the best

The Cats in the cradle-The cat’s eye

I love this song by Harry Chaplin.  His lyrics touch the heart of many fathers.  Taking time out with family is just what a home based business will afford you.  Finding the time to spend time with family is so important.  The cats in the cradle with a silver spoon they had everything they needed because this dad provided and made provisions.  The sadness came when dad did not have time for his son and then as his son became a man his life changed as well limiting his interaction with dad.

Home based business will reduces the stress of not spending time with family.  The advantages of a home base business include regulating your time.  Organizing your day where it will not interfere with family.  The family needs will be met.  You’re able to develop your own work hours.  Balancing acts will disappear and your time clock is the one you develop. Home based businesses are amazing and can be very lucrative.

Procrastination deals with putting off or delaying priority.  Business owners are not to delay important webinars, calls, or getting back with affiliates who need the help.  There are some things in home based businesses that require our immediate attention.  “Everyone procrastinates sometimes, but 20 percent of people chronically avoid difficulty tasks to avoid taking care of the immediate, and deliberately look for distractions” (Psychologytoday.com).

“The most impressive people I know are procrastinators.  So could it be that procrastination isn’t always bad?” (Graham, 2005).

Graham believes that there are three forms of procrastination:

  1. Nothing
  2. Something
  3. More important

On review of Grahams’ information the more important is considered a good procrastination variant.  Graham believes that putting off small things and working on more important things is still considered procrastination.

Graham offers interesting concepts and in my review he suggests that to procrastinate is both good and bad.  The best decision made is when you priorities your work which leaves the other task dormant until tackled.

To get started in a home based business whether you procrastinate or note you will have to begin by completing the join form and logging into your member area and it may not be the best decision to procrastinate on learning how to access, and utilize your new business tools.

Set up your home business today don’t procrastinate, prioritize your time so the family will not suffer.  Focus on the future and share your procession so the family will see the benefits.

In The Morning-Planning your day

One great feature for home based business is planning your morning. How is your morning? The morning for me begins with a thank you to God for walking me up and starting me on my way it keeps me anchored. I may read a scripture or two it cleanses my mind of clutter. I believe it is important to begin the day with positive thoughts.

            One of the scriptures I like can be found in Proverbs entitled Trusting in the Lord. My children never forget what I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart, for they will give you a long and satisfying life. Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace; write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people and you will gain a good reputation (Proverbs 3).

            This scripture is soothing to me, it is significant in our business dealings, ruthless business men and women don’t gain favor with both God and people and perhaps they may not care. These are principles which bring peace of mind into your life. People respond better when kindness and loyalty lead you. I trust in this scripture and believe in its principles.

            There are many things stored in the heart of man like regret. You regret not becoming an NBA superstar, a famous dance, pianist, writer, teacher or doctor. Regret plays the same record every day in your mind. I know there are others who regret not accomplishing things in life. I have found regret to hinder progress, breed bitterness, and could be the reason why we isolate.

            Focus on finding favor with God and people, stay loyal and kind to others, even when others are not so kind. I love shower others with kindness anyway. I’m wearing my loyalty and kindness necklace today.

            Internet marketing is tough, challenging and sometimes unfriendly. The words of others can cut and yell at you. Readers should feel your kindness and sincerity in your blogs, comments and post. Independent business owners must be strong, durable and not easily broken. You must not be viscous with others but shower them with kindness. The fabric of your mind must weather storms like rejection, limited to no affiliate participation, a drop in numbers, and no compensation this month.

            I leave you with a quote: A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Saint Basil
