5 Tips for Business Success

Being successful in life requires a purpose and discipline to pursue that purpose. You must stay focused and avoid distractions. This also applies to business success.

 

You need to imagine yourself as a success. Daily visualize what your life will be like, what you’ll be doing, and how it feels. Decide what you like and are really good at and lay out a plan to get there. This will no doubt involve consulting with someone in your area of interest. Set clear goals and be realistic. Figure out what success looks like for you following these five tips for business success.

 

Focus on Your Main Objective

 

You might want to be a computer programmer or a software engineer. Research the requirements. It probably means attending school and getting certification. Or, you may want to be an Internet marketer. The same principal applies.

 

Write out a plan and begin taking steps toward that end. Don’t procrastinate. Break your goal into smaller goals and begin to work on those smaller goals. Set an overall timetable and times for finishing each smaller goal.

 

Avoid Distractions

 

Keep distractions at a minimum. It’s not possible to stay 100% focused 100% of the time. Just don’t let your goals take a backseat to them.

 

Find a Mentor

 

A mentor is someone who usually has a bit more experience than you, who knows the trade, offers advice, and helps you. A mentor will help you network, trouble shoot, and strategize.

 

Always keep learning. Gather as much information as you can. Take calculated risks.

 

Solve Problems

 

Successful people encourage progress by solving problems and answering questions. Can you make life easier for people in an effective way? Can you create a product or provide a service that fills a crucial gap?

 

Be Persistent

 

If your first attempt doesn’t work, pick yourself up and try again. Don’t make excuses. You will have failures. Failures don’t define you. They are learning experiences. Don’t repeat the same mistake. Don’t give up.

 

So, focus on your main objective, avoid distractions, find a mentor, solve problems, and be persistent.

 

Step out of your comfort zone. Don’t wait for opportunities to fall in your lap. Sniff them out. Successful people make big investments in their careers, in their businesses, in their education and, all investments involve risk. Use these five tips for business success to get started. Study your risks, make sure the odds are in your favor, and take a leap.

10 Rules for Small Business Success

by Rahimah Sultan

 

photo from blog

 

As a new entrepreneur you need to follow certain rules for small business success. You need to quell the enthusiasm a bit and focus on starting out right to avoid later disappointment.

 

Here are 10 of the most important rules for small business success:

 

1. Start small and grow. Don’t try to sell to everyone. You need a niche – a specific product or service so that you’re not competing with everyone.

 

2. Concentrate on what will be the bread and butter of your business. Don’t try to implement all your entrepreneurial ideas at once. You can branch out later.

 

3. Make sure you have a product or service that customers really want.

 

4. Develop a business plan that forces you to think through the basic elements of your company, i.e. your market, competition, industry and your position.

 

5. Know your customers. If you have a clear target market you can be much more effective and efficient in both your product development and marketing efforts.

 

6. Build one business at a time. Concentrate on one new direction, product or service, one target market or one distribution channel at a time.

 

7. Don’t re-invent the wheel. Get a piece of an existing market. Creating a market for a brand-new type of product or service is difficult, time-consuming and expensive.

 

8. Double the estimate of the time and money you originally think you’ll need. Things cost more and take longer than planned.

 

9. Keep things short and use lots of photos. People don’t like to read.

 

10. Build strong customer relationships. People like to do business with those they know, like, and trust.

Multi-Level Marketing: Your Approach

by Rahimah Sultan

Multi-level marketing has gotten a bad reputation, partially due to a lot of confusion about legitimacy. Although structured almost exactly like a pyramid scheme, it is legal. A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business that involves the exchange of money, usually in the form of a sign-up fee, and usually has no product or service.

 

Check what the Better Business Bureau has to say about the company and the guide if it’s nutritionals.

 

This business is not for everyone. Is your up-line helpful and caring? Are you team spirited?

 

Another part of the multi-level marketing reputation is due to a marketer’s approach.

 

When promoting your product or service, don’t be pushy. Just be there when someone is ready to try your offer. If you’ve researched the company and are pleased, educate people on the benefits of using the products or services. You can do this in several ways; physical meetings, online webinars, videos, etc., showing how you are benefiting from using the products or services.

 

Do not make outrageous income claims or promise people that you will build their business. That only adds fuel to the fire of the bad reputation.

 

In order to be successful in MLM, you need honesty and integrity; not lies and pushy tactics. And you should care about your team.
