Don’t Waste Your Time

Time Management can be a huge struggle for any entrepreneur.

The key- Don’t Waste Your Time:                  

Define your purpose!

Your priorities, energy, mental clarity and focus will then fall naturally in to place.

When you become really clear about who you are and what you want, your purpose will become clear too. That’s when you can more effectively lay out your priorities. You will know just what to do. Getting your priorities (goals) straight will help you to naturally begin to make better choices and you will know where to put your time and energy.

Stay away from negative energy, drama, bad habits, and empty foods. They all drain your focus, energy and mental clarity.

The healthier and more passionate someone is about who they are and what they are doing, typically the more effective they are in every hour of every day. Having a passion for living your purpose is the ultimate fuel for success. Living in the drama-free zone is a great place to start.

10 Business Tips to Keep You On Your Path When Things Go Horribly Wrong

Nobody gets through life without some disappointment, struggles, or just plain bad luck. These losses and or conflicts can be devastating. They can give you good reason to GIVE UP on Your Dreams. These experiences, as we are going throug

h them can be brutal. Each of them, naturally, can knock you off course or even completely out for awhile, but NOT everyone gives up. Some people focus that desperation and actually become stronger and GROW and find success and happiness – EVENTUALLY!

Here are 10 Tips to Keep You On Your Path When Things Get Tough:

Let the past be the past. – No matter how much you screwed up in the past, no matter how chaotic, traumatic or discouraging the past has been, the future is a clean, fresh, wide open slate.
Focus on what you’ve got. – Gratitude is powerful. Count your BLESSINGS everyday and they will lift you up. POSITIVE thoughts can inspire HUGE changes and put the focus on what’s important. Spend time and energy on things that move you in the direction you want to go.
Accept the Growth Cycle. – Things Change! Part of living and grow is facing change and experiencing failure. Think of those instances as NEW and sometimes difficult tasks, but not final steps. Try to gain something, to grow as person, figure out a lesson that you can take with you. This simple step will help you OVERCOME the tough stuff FASTER and help you move on in healthy way. You, in all your unique ways are greater than any problem and Everything that happens CAN be a life lesson if you are willing to LEARN!
Be in control. – Your emotions are your choice. Feelings change, people change, and time keeps rolling. A smile is a choice, not an accident. Don’t wait for someone or something to make you happy. Life Lotteries DO NOT EXSIST! True happiness has to come from within.
Surround yourself with LOVE. – Who you let in to your life MATTERS. Life is too short to waste a minute of it with ‘haters’. Consciously seek out people who bring out the best in you.
You’re not alone. – You are HUMAN and so is everyone else. Everyone Has Problems! No matter how embarrassed or pathetic you feel about your own situation, someone else HAS been there and gotten out. Find out there story. How did they survive and concur! There’s your road map! FOLLOW IT!
It’s hard to say exactly when you will succeed until you get there. – The only way to get there is to never give up and keep moving forward. Success is often closer than it seems, and arrives suddenly, when you least expect it.
Life is NOT easy. – If you expect it to be, you will perpetually be disappointed. Achieving anything worthwhile in life takes effort. Expect to work hard.
You always have a choice. – No matter what, there are always at least two options. If you can’t physically change something, you can change the way you think about it.
Take responsibility. – Your Life Is Yours! No one can make it happen to you. If you fail or if you succeed is all up to you. If you mess up, admit it, say sorry, even if it’s just to you and figure out how to fix it. If you ‘Make It’, CELEBRATE! Don’t be afraid to enjoy success. You Deserve to be Happy!

Getting Started Will Be The Hardest Part Of Your Business

It is often said that, “Getting Started IS The Hardest Part!” So, how did you get started in your business?

Knowing the answer to this question can help you understand better how to help others to join you.

We ask a few Happy Direct Sales Reps to tell us How They Got Started.  We are hoping that their  stories could help another networker grow and inspire them to grow their business too.  Maybe yours and if you have an inspiring story about Starting Out please share it in the comment section.

   Michele Doan Braley Just ask!!! EVERYONE!! And be excited about your business!!! I LOVE mine!!! Tastefully Simple rocks!!! Perfect fit for me!!!

  Sherri L Freedom I sold Avon in the 90’s I was very familiar with the product. I relocated to a different state, and at the time, it wasn’t going well. Now in 2011 I became a customer again, realized how much I missed it, signed in August of 2011 and became a Unit Leader in Sept 2011! Still going strong and loving it!

  FindSalesRep.com I started out in Network Marketing completely by accident. I told the gal that signed me up “I am never going to do the business so please don’t talk to me about it.” But the products really made an obvious difference in my life and everyone I knew wanted what I had. My first goal was just to get my product paid for my second goal was to help the people that I signed up to get their product paid for. Helping them was fun and it was strong motivation to be supportive and successful. I had to get over self doubt  and learn the basics, but once I decided to make it work I was willing to do what ever it took and I put in the time and got over my fears.
