Here is some good news, if you have ever felt that creating home business income was mysterious or confusing: simply approach it correctly and it could be easier than you think.

It’s true that there is a high rate of failure for people trying to make money from their own home business. Since I know you don’t want to be counted in that particular statistic, today’s post will highlight some tips on how to create income from your home business in three easy steps.

1. Create focus by choosing a niche business. This is a must because of how intensely competitive the Internet is. As world economies tighten up and more home business entrepreneurs look to the Internet for extra income, competition is only going to get stiffer.

A niche business is where you take a broad theme and narrow it down. The idea is to stack the odds in your favour by eliminating some of the competition.

A good example of narrowing your market by choosing a niche can be found in… Read the rest of this entry

In the previous post, part one of “Wealth Creation Begins With Personal Development,” I noted how all achievement in our life starts with a dream, fueled by desire, and brought into reality through planning and focused action.

The foundation of all achievement is personal development. When we work on developing and improving our skills and abilities, we empower ourselves to achieve anything we can imagine. When we apply this to the process of wealth creation, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.

To help illustrate the process of wealth creation through effective personal development, I referred to Brian Tracy’s program, The Universal Laws of Success and Achievement. Specifically, five of the 10 Laws of Wealth Creation highlighted in Session 8 of the popular program. Brian, a bestselling author and renowned professional speaker, is a recognized world leader in the field of personal development and business training.

In this post, we will examine, in brief, the remaining five Laws of Wealth Creation, and please remember that the few details listed here are significantly abbreviated from their original versions available in Brian’s program: Read the rest of this entry

There is a starting point for everything. First, we dream. Then we nurture the spark of desire for achievement in some area of our life into something more defined, and we take action.

The same process is true for wealth creation. First, we dream of home business income. Then we fan the flames of desire into something more action oriented. We identify the steps that must be taken to move us from concept to realization, and we begin following those steps.

Ultimately, wealth creation begins with personal development.

In one of his most popular personal development training programs, The Universal Laws of Success and Achievement, Brian Tracy devotes a whole session to the Laws of Wealth Creation. He provides insightful detail and inspiration on topics ranging from creative emulation to the laws of desire, purpose, entrepreneurship, bootstrapping, courage, risk, undue optimism, persistence and more.

Let’s take a brief look at the basic ideas behind a few of these universal laws: Read the rest of this entry

Home Business Income The Hard Way

GT BulmerGT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

You may have noticed: the competition is getting tougher for anybody trying to build a business online these days because everybody seems to be jumping on the Internet bandwagon. And quite a few of them are discovering ways to earn home business income the hard way. Maybe you can relate?

A lot of Internet and Affiliate Marketing “newbies” get in a real rush and try to skip some important steps in the marketing process. For example, they jump right into the advertising and marketing part before taking the time to learn and apply proper search engine optimization techniques. Web traffic is one of the keys to success, and search engine traffic can be very profitable because traffic from the search engines is typically targeted traffic. But if you fail to optimize your site, your blog, your articles, etc., you could miss out on some valuable traffic and sales. It will take you longer to make money online and that’s one way that could cause you to earn home business income the hard way. Take time to research and learn more about Search Engine Optimization.

Another way to build a business the hard way is to jump from program to program thinking the problem is the program when it could simply be your own marketing skills that need work. In many cases, if a product or program is not producing the desired results, it’s because either… Read the rest of this entry

Personal Development: 3 Quick Tips

This post will highlight a few of Brian Tracy’s insights into Personal Development: 3 quick tips, in fact, that I have chosen from the many that can be found in his popular audio program, The New Psychology of Achievement.

In the program, Brian talks about the “inner game” of success: how we organize our thoughts and attitudes; how we set goals and get along with others; how we understand ourselves and release our personal brakes to accomplish extraordinary things.

Tip #1: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

Brian talks about the Law of Cause and Effect: there is a reason for everything. “Thoughts are causes,” he explains, and “Conditions are effects. Your thoughts create the conditions of your life.”

If you do what other people do, you will eventually get the results that other people get and Brian points out that successful people have learned that if you change your thinking, you change your life.

“The quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life more than any other factor,” he advises. “Top achievers think about what they want … and how to get it, most of the time. Average people think about Read the rest of this entry

I am in the middle of an intense writing project for a local client and let me tell you, I have been reading some incredible stories of determination and commitment. If you think home business success and achievement takes time, you might consider the demands and challenges faced by adult students working towards a university degree.

My task is to write a short bio for each student, to be read by a narrator as the student walks across the stage to receive his or her degree. I will have as many as 500 bios to write over the next few weeks.

These are committed individuals seeking greater success and achievement, greater knowledge, personal skills and professional credentials in order to advance in their chosen fields. In most cases, they are doing this BlipStarrwhile still working full time and raising a family.

Their level of determination, focus and commitment is evidenced by how they spend their “free time” during the program, which can last for several years depending on the field: instead of spending time with family or socializing with friends, in most cases, these students must use every bit if free time they can reading, studying, writing papers, doing required projects and, in some cases, working on site in their chosen fields to get practical, hands-on experience.

Why do they do it? Read the rest of this entry
