Entrepreneur success is about making changes to your habits and your to your thinking, so when you take the 30 day challenge with your online business you set the seeds for success in you.

Habits take about 30 days to become a part of our new way, and by building sturdy entrepreneur habits you set off the process of creating a solid foundation for yourself and for your business. Make some time in deciding what you want to do and achieve over the next 30 days in your online business.

Take the 30 day challenge and set your goals for your entrepreneur success.

It is the process of daily action in the pursuit of your goals that leads to business success.

The very process of starting a new business means you expect to set up a new way of life. Make the new way a way of self empowerment. By educating yourself as much as you work on your business, you will be creating the new habits that are critical factors for entrepreneur success. You can reach whatever you believe you can, and the same applies to you will fail at whatever you believe you will, so by settingstrong empowering beliefs and following your action plans you will lead yourself towards the outcomes that you want. Positive thoughts and actions are the critical success factors.

Adopt change, welcome the change that will occur. The more that you prepare the changes the more you will feel in control of what is happening. We all are happy in ourselves to the degree that we have control of what is happening around us. By organising yourself for the next 30 days you will be taking control of your new habits and actions and at the same time taking control of your new business.

Entrepreneur success is a habit, take the challenge and shape a forward momentum in your life. By changing how you see yourself and how you behave you will at the same time change how others see and believe in you. That will change the outcome with your business.

Patience for Entrepreneurs

images5

Its summer and so for that reason Ill break from my insistence on pragmatic advice and write on a topic you might consider fluff. Yet its the biggest mistake I see small business owners make, including me. We have no patience. I think that its a given that a requirement for being an entrepreneur is to have a low grade case of ADD, or in my case, ADHD with an emphasis on the H. And in marketing, that will kill you.

I cant tell you how many times a client tries something and when there are no immediate results says “Well that doesnt work.” Its like lifting weights one day and expecting that tricep cut to develop overnight. Im not suggesting that we all go out and spend a bajillion dollars on advertising during American Idol. But I do think that in order for your PR and marketing tactics to work you have to learn to wait a bit. Here are a few tips to use to figure out if youre too impatient.

1. Are you measuring your campaign results by the number of orders youre getting off each initiative? In a word, DONT. Look at your website hits instead, or the traffic in your store. Whats the first step toward buying your product or service? Do they request a brochure? Do they visit the website? Measure by those “first steps” in the short term.

2. Are you changing your marketing strategy on a weekly or monthly basis? WRONG. You had better have confidence in your strategy (or your consultant) from the start. Nothing works if you dont believe in it 100% from the beginning. Switching around what youre doing on a constant basis and youll end up running circles.

3. Are you relying on only one outreach method? It may work now, but it will stop working eventually. Or youll end up trying one thing after another. BLEND your messaging channels. If youre doing radio, connect it to an online promotion as well. Trying guerilla marketing? Make sure youve got some PR working in conjunction with those “on the ground” techniques.

Particularly in the online world, patience is the key to success. Jay Conrad Levinson, the founder of Guerilla Marketing, believes that patience is the most important characteristic of successful entrepreneurs. Be confident in your approach. Measure it wisely. And then, like that old farmer in the field, be patient and watch the seeds of your marketing work grow.

Entrepreneur Make It Big in Restaurant Business Is Now Venturing Into Internet Marketing Business

images17

It is always inspiring to hear personal business stories of entrepreneurs who overcame all odds and doubts in venturing into business and make it big. Last Sunday, I just read about how a 35 years old Thai Express Founder Ivan Lee, who started his F & B business with $300K and eventually sold his controlling stake for a sizeable $114 million in the process netting himself $80 million.

What was even more impressive was Ivan had no background or experience in F & B business before he first ventured into his first F & B business. Despite all his doubters, including his family members, about the viability of his business when he first started, he persevered and carried on. Apparently, his father-in-law was also a successful entrepreneur who founded the contract manufacturing firm JIT Holdings and sold it to Fortune 500 company Flextronics for $1 billion in 2000. This deal netted the senior Mr Goh some
$300 million. When starting out, he had benefitted from the financial and advisory support given by his father-in-law, but, subsequently, he went against his father-in-law advise by venturing into other restaurant businesses which were highly successful and are now contributing about two thirds of the business turnovers. An element of luck also play an important part in his business success as he had opened close to 100 stores but about 10 to 20 percent of the stores were not profitable. So he was lucky that his first 10 ventures were successful which provided the cash flow for his subsequent business expansion.

He is now venturing into the internet market in China despite not being in the IT industry. When The Sunday Times journalist contacted him, it found the entrepreneur in Shenzhen, experiencing growing pains all over again. He says that his friends and family are again doubting his new venture. His remark was: “I am a rooke now playing in a much bigger league and I feel like I am nine years back, starting all over again.” This young millionaire is setting his eye on his next big venture where he wants to build the next Baidu (China’s equivalent of Google) or even the next Facebook.

Lesson learnt: To make it big in business you need to be bold, have perseverance and be unique and certainly having financial support from family helps and also an element of luck. He is certainly one hack of a brave entrepreneur!

My advise is learn about internet and social media marketing before plunging into the business and be better prepared for your business venture into the internet marketing world. I am making use of my internet skills to help develop and launch community websites Henley Brunel MBA Alumni (Singapore) and other commercial websites for corporate businesses.

Good luck to all of you out there running your start-up businesses!

Tips Choosing Your First Business as an Entrepreneur

images7

There is a big misconception regarding first time entrepreneurship and that is the justification that it is okay to fail your first time simply because some well-known entrepreneurs failed and then hit it big.

What is not mentioned is the number of individuals who failed their first time as an entrepreneur and never got a second shot. Therefore, you might as well make it profitable the first time around.

Thus, to ensure higher odds of entrepreneurial success, you must choose the right business.

Here are 4 tips how:

1. Don’t Let the Economy Determine What Business You Should Start

The first thing that entrepreneurs think of when starting a business is our current economic condition. Although it is hard to bypass the thought of a horrid economy and the subsequent effect on your new entrepreneurial venture, it is imperative that you not let the economy sway your decision.

This will especially prove true when the economy turns in the next few years and you are left with an average business that was overly defensive and a lot of regret.

2. Let Google Assist You In Your Choice of Business How do you truly determine market demand for the product and / or services you plan to offer?

One way to do it is to use the Google Keyword Checker. This basic site will tell you how many people are searching monthly for your product or service.

Another key element that the Keyword Checker brings to the table is the use of adjectives.

For instance, you may want to open a business selling blue widgets, but upon looking up how sought after the product is on the web, you find out that green widgets are searched for times as often as blue.

3. You Cannot Avoid Sales, Instead You Must Embrace It and Not Let It Determine Your Business Choice

A willingness to engage in sales separates the men and women from what will be future job seekers.

Entrepreneurs hate sales because for some reason they tend to be more afraid of rejection than your average Corporate Joe or Jane. Why this reason is, I cannot tell you, but to avoid human interaction, entrepreneurs will completely alter the business that they are going into.

What they don’t realize is that regardless of industry, sales is part of business and, thus part of entrepreneurship.

4. K.I.S.S. Keep the concept simple (or, to use the real phrase, Keep It Simple, Stupid). A rule of thumb for first time (and any entrepreneurs) is that if you cannot explain your business in two sentences or less, it’s most likely not going to sell.

It is very rare that people reinvent the wheel with entrepreneurship. As a matter of fact, you can count them on your fingers: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Sir Richard Branson and ?

The odds of hitting Pick 6 are better. In entrepreneurship, especially when choosing your first business, go for a base hit, not a home run your first time at bat.

You need to follow these traits. People who are successful as entrepreneur are always good leaders. So you must also make sure that you become a good leader and mange your team in the best possible way.

Financial Support for Filipino Entrepreneurs

Starting up a business usually requires a lot of capital. However, other than its basic capital, there are also other unforeseen expenses involved in starting a business, no matter how small or how big the business is. This is the reason why many business experts and consultants recommend entrepreneurs to prepare for the overhead expenses that they would encounter once they start their own business.

But what if they lack the necessary capital to accommodate their business overhead costs? At this time, financial assistance from loaning firms may prove very useful. This is the reason why BPI had started their own business loan services, such as their Fast cash loan Philippines, which aims to offer Filipinos the chance to start their own business even though they lack the necessary funds for it.

Why Businesses Became a Popular Trend Businesses had become a very popular trend in the Philippines. The number of small businesses, such as food cart businesses had grown massively all over the country. Part of the reason why is because of the continuous growth of new business opportunities, particularly the franchise business industry.

However, other than the growing number of new business opportunities, another reason why businesses became a popular trend is because of the many financial support that the government, as well as the private sectors, offers for Filipino businessmen and women. One of those services is BPIs Ka-Negosyo business loan services.

how To Become An Entrepreneur— Not A Salesman

Are You An Entrepreneur Or A Salesman?

What I mean by this, everyday, I open my PC and see my screen filled with nonsensical garbage, to put it politely…These wannabies coming online are only thinking of themselves. A true lack of discipline or just not caring about the customer.

True Entrepreneurs provide the customers with satisfaction in meeting their need in a niche. But today it seems like everyone coming online have only one thing in mind—“Get Rich Quick” with no regard to the customers who are the bloodline of their business.

Here’s an example of a true Entrepreneur— Donald Trump see’s A prosperous venture and he begins his quest by promoting his idea to potential clients who will not only become a partner but will also fund this project. This Business is called leveraging and is very effective if utilized properly— In the end— everyone is happy and satisfied…The customer gets what they want and the business partners make HUGE earning from their funding strategies and Donald Trump becomes another billionaire.

An Entrepreneur sees a need that needs to be met and he meets it. There reward is a satisfied customer and a new friend. Business is established by your social ability to sell yourself not a niche. Sell yourself and your customers will take care of you forever.

Who would you rather do business with, someone who is always trying to stick a product in your face or someone who is giving you good content? I would venture to say the later.

Give your subscriber a free offer in the niche you are promoting and they will see you are trying to meet their need and sometimes they will let you know what they are in the market for. Once you gain their confidence and trust they will buy anything you promote because they trust you. That’s the difference between an Entrepreneur and a salesmen.

Remember, Marketing is a Business not a Casino…There’s no jackpots— just you!
