Think about what people like Dave Ramsey, Tony Robbins, and John Maxwell do at the end of the year to prepare for a success-filled one in the upcoming days?!? 

 

I just finished reading a 19 page FREE report where Matt Hyatt interviews over 30 high achievers their process on what they do to set themselves up for the best year ever!!!

 

It is perhaps one of the most eye-opening presentations as these leaders share 8 commonalities on what they do to take their careers, businesses, and visions to the next level.

 

You can access this same report by clicking the link here ===>>> http://howtheworldseesyou.com/mh-achievers

 

It is absolutely free and I am confident that you will find it valuable while picking a golden nugget or two to apply as you create your 2015 unique success plan!!!

Cheers to a productive 2015!

To your utmost success,

"Girl on fire..."

Just last week I shared a detailed 7 step process to create your unique success plan for the 2015 year.  You see, the key is (if you haven’t already) to finalize your goals prior to the New Year so that you can begin on the 1st ready to rock and roll!!!

 

I recently came across an article that is actually catered to realtors but also found it appropriate for entrepreneurs.  These 5 easy tips Wade shares indeed complements the unique success plan so I want to give those tips here (of course with my own spin to it), yet you are more than welcome to access the original source here.

5 Easy Tips to Implement for Your 2015 Business Goals

 

#1 Take your big goal and create smaller, realistic ones

If you’re like me, then perhaps you set grandiose goals that you totally believe you can make happen.  You’ve got the faith, the excitement, and the determination.

 

Those thing are nice, but they key is to create a timeline where you are taking bit size chunks towards your goals.  I like to break mine up into quarters (i.e. first quarter, Jan-Mar, second quarter, April-June, etc.) to help me reach my overall yearly vision.  I start off small in quarter one, then I increase it based off of expected increase and momentum in my business.

 

#2 Get your email list in order

Your main objective this year is to be building your customer list.  You want to always be cultivating your list by sending valuable email messages that speaks to your target audience.  As you build rapport, it will be easier to sell with your promotional content. 

 

#3 Leverage the power of video

Did you know that by 2017, 74% of content viewed on the Internet will be through video?!?  This statistic alone should motivate you to incorporate video marketing into your strategy plan.  You see, most people are scared to get in front of the camera, which is the perfect reason to start creating videos about your business and promoting you!!!!

 

There is a magical, powerful connection that is made with video that can’t be done anywhere else.  Please don’t miss out on this potential gold mine for your business…it has helped me generate free quality leads while converting thousands in sales!  Its worth it…

#4 Use your social networks for lifestyle marketing…not to pitch folks

This is one strategy that I plan on using in 2015.  Honestly, I haven’t leverage social media (like Facebook) this past year as I’ve done in the past because my focus was on blogging and video marketing.  However, I have become increasingly aware that my target market is roaming all over FB so my presence there is necessary to connect with ladies on this platform.

 

Keep in mind that social sites such as FB, Twitter, and Instagram are made to be engaging and interactive.  It’s an awesome avenue to build your network and enhance relationships with your market.  You can promote your biz from time to time but focus more on being responsive and showing the world more of who you are.  This is how you get people to know, like and trust you!

 

#5 Get your own website…a blog!

If you are reppin’ the duplicated website that your company gives every distributor in your biz opp, you are doing it wrong.  Your company has the power to take down your website at any moment because technically, it’s not yours. 

 

Owning your blog which allows you to share value in your niche.  A blog positions you as an authority, a go-to person, an expert in your industry.  It’s pretty much your home on the World Wide Web.  Don’t wander homeless on the Internet…get your self-hosted blog set up in 60 seconds (just like the one you’re on now) so you can begin to represent YOU…not your company.

 

You can literally create your blog by clicking here, completing your login information, and hitting submit.  Here’s whats included in this unique blogging platform:

 

  • Members only training site that teaches you how to get your blog post ranked on the 1st page of Google
  • An 8-video training series that gives you a daily game plan on what to do daily in your business
  • Access to private weekly trainings that shows you what’s working now in online & digital marketing
  • Interact with millionaires who have built their entire businesses through blogging
  • Have a mentor (myself) to help guide you along the way

…and much more!

 

These tips are simple yet profound when gearing up for 2015 in your business.  Don’t just read this…act on all the steps, and I’ll see you…at the top!

Truth be told, it takes active income to fund your business as well as meet the survival needs for you and your family.  You see, it’s not wise just to up and quit your job when you see a great business opportunity that may indeed replace your working income.  Unless you have at least 6 months of savings, the best advice is to wait until your business is creating a sufficient income that meets or exceeds your current one.

 

More often than not, our business growth is going to come a lot sloooooower than we want it…for the most part.  Now there are some people who just have a knack for business and seem to do well from the beginning.  But that’s just a small percentage. 

There is a learning curve and personal development that we must endure before we begin to reap the profits of our hard work.  So the point here is to keep your active income (or job) until your business starts to make money for ya!

 

But what if you are in a position where you have no active income?!?  Perhaps you were recently laid off, fired, or have to be a stay at home parent.  Whatever the reason, I’m sure you are yearning to find ways to make money fast to add to your household and fund your business.

The following are 6 ways to create a working income from home.  It’s more a list/overview so be sure to google them to find out more about!

 

#1 Odesk.com

Create a portfolio of your skills on this platform and find out who is hiring for your services.  This a great way to earn a full time income from home.

 

#2 BlogMutt.com

Are you good at writing?!?  Blog for other businesses by using BlogMutt to get paid for writing.  For every blog post that is accepted, you are paid $8 to your Paypal account.  If you commit (and they are accepted) to writing 5 blog posts a day, that’s $40 a day, $280 a week, and $1200 a month.  Could your household use an extra $1200 monthly active income?!? 

BlogMutt is not the only freelance writing platform out there…google how to get paid to write for more options.  You may find some that pay more too.

 

#3 Consider being a virtual assistant

There are many online and network marketers that are looking for help to do the mundane tasks of their marketing such as Facebook posting, syndicating blog posts, and emailing leads, for example.  Promote yourself and how you can be of service to this niche group.

 

#4 Telecommuter

Companies are leveraging more and more telecommuters to do the traditional “at the office” type work from home.  You can go on Craigslist in your area to see which companies are hiring for work at home personnel like call center positions.  These are actual “real” positions where you are on their payroll as if you came into the building each day. 

 

Be careful for the scams that are out there…be sure to research the business prior to.  You may run into some network marketing opportunities (and not to say they are scams because I believe in the network marketing model), but for someone who is looking for active income, you need a job that you can leverage temporarily while you build your business.

 

Also, check out big companies like Apple or Capital One, for example.  They are known to hire lots of telecommuters! 

 

#5 Web designer

Are you good at creating websites or web banners?!?  There is a huge market of small businesses looking for people just like you to help them out in creating a site for customers.

 

#6 Fiverr.com

Sell your services and skills for $5 and up.  You may have to do a bit of promoting here but Fiverr has become a hot spot for marketers to pay people to do services for.  You will be surprised what people will pay $5 for.
