Home Business Struggling

Before I started with this company, I too Struggled for the Past four years.   I had a lot of Home Business Success, but I moved all of my business online… and that was my full concentration.   My Business plummeted to the very bottom… I Spent over 250K learning how to market online.

What I learned was Astounding… don’t do it!

Is Online Marketing bad? No!  But it is not reproducible for someone new… in any reasonable timeframe.

So I searched for a New Company.  And I found One!  A perfect one!

Here is my Story!

“Before I started my new business my home business was Struggling every day.  I worked my butt off, and it seemed online I was getting nowhere!  The first thing I noticed was that this business was so different, I loved the product, and it actually worked!  That’s something I had not known before… Since then, my business has grown by 8 people this week alone,  and I am now making money… and you know this best part is… business is now Fun”!

Now that I found this new business… my mindset followed.  But I had all this knowledge of Internet Marketing, and I did not want it to go to waste!  Then it hit me… like a ton of bricks!  What does every Home business need?

Leads and Prospects!

How can a New Person who has gone through their Hot market… and hit the Plateau after the Hot market is gone…. What can they do?

Thats Easy
Thats FREE!

What would I do?

Then I remembered a Free Source… but then they have to learn Advertising… and for the new person… thats not reproducible for everyone!  So that was out!

Or Was it?








Yes Dave, I want Success!

I want to work with YOU!

Thats when the other load of Bricks landed… and I thought… Why not just Reverse it!  Reverse the process!

Out of that I discovered two things that will Revolutionize my Teams business’s!  So I tested it!  Result>>WOW!

But, what if I opened the door… for 30 new people for another test program…  to build upon this Magic formula for Success… Unlimited FREE leads and Prospects!

Yes, Yes, Yes

Thats what several have told me!

Now what if you were One of them?

Network Marketing vs. Internet Marketing

dave4 300There is often times some confusion between Network Marketing and Internet Marketing

Lets take a Look!

Network Marketing

Network marketing is a type of business opportunity that is very popular with people looking for part-time, flexible businesses. Some of the best-known companies in America, including Avon, Mary Kay Cosmetics and Tupperware, fall under the network marketing umbrella.

Network marketing programs feature a low upfront investment–usually only a few hundred dollars for the purchase of a product sample kit–and the opportunity to sell a product line directly to friend, family and other personal contacts. Most network marketing programs also ask participants to recruit other sales representatives. The recruits constitute a rep’s “downline,” and their sales generate income for those above them in the program.

Internet Marketing

Internet marketing, or online marketing, refers to advertising andmarketing efforts that use the Web and email to drive direct sales via electronic commerce, in addition to sales leads from Web sitesor emails. Internet marketing and online advertising efforts are typically used in conjunction with traditional types of advertising like radio, television, newspapers and magazines.

Specialized Areas of InternetMarketing

Internet marketing can also be broken down into more specialized areas such as Web marketing, email marketing and social mediamarketing:

1) Web marketing includes e-commerce Web sites, affiliatemarketing Web sites, promotional or informative Web sites, online advertising on search engines, and organic search engine results via search engine optimization (SEO).

2) Email marketing involves both advertising and promotional marketing efforts via e-mail messages to current and prospective customers.

3) Social media marketing involves both advertising and marketing (including viral marketing) efforts via social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Digg.

The Message in the Bottle

The Message in the Bottle

Something happened, it was winter, and the year was 2014.  I was cruising along to nowhere  with a business that was a bust… Have you been there? Can you relate to my story?  I was not happy, and my profits in this venture were… horrific!

You see… I struggled to carry a business, I did not like, and a product I did not use… that leads to a Mindset that does not win!  So a message was place in the bottle and the business was pitch overboard… to land in the hands of another as a warning… don’t try this at Home!

I guess as far as this business was concerned I was Done! So the Search Began…

What happened?  Who got the message in the bottle?

You see… Before I started my new business line I was Struggling every day.  I worked my butt off, and it seemed online I was getting nowhere!

The first thing I noticed in my new venture was that this business was so different, I loved the product, and it actually worked!

That’s something I had not known before…

Since then, my business has grown by 8 people this week alone,  and I am now making money… and you know this best part is… business is now Fun!

So the message in the Bottle was gone… out of sight out of mind… that led me to discover something I really enjoyed… perhaps I shall pitch that… message out to sea… so you might find it… and find my success.

The 3 A’s Of Leadership

dave4 300Leadership The Month in Review

A Good leader and mentor will always push his clients to go the next step, regardless of how well they are currently doing.  This is just a natural progression of your personal and professional growth.  Just a few days ago I was talking to a client on the phone.  They wanted some advice on how to make things just a little better in their business.

They were already successful, so you might be asking… why mess with perfection? Well in that statement is the error… perfection!  No one is perfect, and there is always room to improve. So we talked for a while and I left him with this solution.

At the end of the month, set aside an hour or two and reflect.

Look at these 3 things. “AAA” the 3 A’s

  1. Assess
  2. Affirm
  3. Adjust

First, assess the month, look at the sales you made, and also look for areas where you may have lost Sales.  Did you make a mistake or Two?  Did you talk too much vs. letting the client do more talking? The main point of Assessing is to determine areas that you might improve over the next month.

Second, Affirm!  Be sure to take time to say…Wow I did good… I am Awesome!  Take the time to Acknowledge and celebrate your Accomplishments.  This builds your Winning Mindset!

Third, Adjust! Take the Time to make those minor adjustments… the ones that will turn close calls into more Sales next month.  If you have too much work, consider outsourcing some of the workload… this will allow you to concentrate on the Profit Generating Activities… and leave the Techie Stuff to someone Else!

So remember… at the End of the Month! Think “AAA” the 3 A’s! Assess your Business, Affirm your Success’s and adjust any Pitfalls to Product even Greater Success.

If you would like to work with me One on One, in My Home Business, and Put my 20+ years of experience to work for you then I have a few positions I am willing to Fill.  Send me an Email to DaveShirleyConsulting@Gmail.com  in that Email, Put your name, your best email, and your Best Phone Number, your Facebook page, and if you have Skype then add it as well.  I will be holding interviews to see who I want to work with on this new Team!

My home business opportunity is the very best…

My home business opportunity is the very best…

Have you ever heard someone say, my opportunity is the very best?  After all if you think about it, that business is their livelihood.  What else would you expect them to say?  This my friends, this is simply their way of saying,  I believe in my business.  I think however it’s important to consider, what criteria are they using to determine the long-term success of their opportunity?

Some might look at the opportunity and ask these questions…

1.  What is the investment requirement?

This is a valid and straight forward question.  We all know that it probably cost money to start a home business opportunity, and we all know that there are hundreds and thousands of people that have been burned on the so called easy to start, guaranteed, home business.  The fact is, all home businesses have an inherent risk.  And the person that tells you it’s 100% guaranteed Is probably lying!
2. What kind of services and products do we sell?

In this question we’re going to explore what exactly are we selling in a home business opportunity.  I prefer to sell a product that has a need in the marketplace.  There’s so many times you’ll find a business that offers just a wide array of products that you can sell… but…  This tends to make it difficult to streamline the advertising necessary to drive targeted traffic to your business.  While all these may be great products we also find that some of those products may be really expensive dependent upon which home business opportunity we have chosen.

)

A home business opportunity that has products that come across as too expensive, will always tend to promote the idea to a potential client, that they can simply go buy that in the store.  They will look over the fact, that their business could be paying for that product, and their residual income will far offset any expense.
3. Is this a selling position?

If I have heard it once, then I have heard it 1000 times.  I do not want a home business opportunity that requires sales!  Have you ever heard this statement?  A sales position, takes a special breed of individual.  And not everyone has that ability to be a natural salesman.  Most people you find simply don’t want to sell stuff.

People with this fear, often have trouble with a company that promotes an opportunity that requires a lot of selling up front.  On the flip side, people dont mind selling, and have an natural ability, will be more than happy with this opportunity.
4.  How long have you been in business and how long has your home business opportunity been around?

This is a valid question coming from a potential client, how long have you been in business?  Most companies have a track record that can be traced back and proven, giving the client specific historical numbers to follow.

A company that is just starting out, will not have the statistics to fall back on.  While there is good and bad in each situation, we need to look at the fact that some individuals Will Not Be Able To Act on this new unknown venture.

While you’ll find others that are more than willing to take advantage of the tremendous opportunity of starting a new company.

5.  With this home business opportunity, what will I get paid?

Now we’re talking money.  Everyone’s eyes and ears, open when we’re talking about the financial results of building this business.  The compensation plan is on the business side of things that some may not think about,  but most people want to know how they will be compensated and about the residual long-term income.  This will encourage them to keep going when times get tough, for the promise of a continued payout down the road.

Residual income is still one of the most powerful and profound ways to ensure cash flow throughout your retirement years.  There are companies out there claiming to provide residual income per say.  But do they really… really work?  In every business plan there are rules that outline the business compensation plan.  And without getting into all of the different payment structures most of these are sound.

If a client wants to be absolutely critical at every juncture, they can probably eliminate all home based opportunities currently available.  And if you do this, you will destroy your dreams of more time, more money, and more freedom.

When I counsel clients, I make it a specific goal to learn about their wants, their needs, and their desires, before I start recommending a product, home based opportunity, or course of action for their success.

I hope these five areas or tips help you and your search for the perfect home business.

Investor and Mortgage Broker Warns of Doom to Come

Investor Mortgage Broker Warns of Doom to Come

dave4Boom… Boom!  Where did my Money Go… A Friend and Mortgage broker in Canada… Warns of the Fallout of the Ukraine situation… lets look at what he has to say! — Dave Shirley http://wp.me/p3NU5m-I7

Calgary Mortgage Broker Warns Buyers “Beware Ukraine Factor.”

Highly experienced Calgary mortgage broker Ken Faminoff, known province-wide as The Lender Guy, warns buyers and sellers in Alberta to be wary of the potential economic fall-out from the Ukraine crisis when it comes to securing finance.

(Newswire.net – March 10, 2014) Calgary, Alberta – Recent predictions of a ‘soft landing’ in the Canadian economy, by the Bank of Canada, a continued nervousness in household spending patterns, infrastructure improvements lagging behind population growth and higher mortgage underwriting standards have combined to ensure a slow, steady improvement in the Country’s property market. But 2014 already appears to be the year for bucking the trend with conditions improving faster than anticipated.

In particular, Alberta, one of the top performing provinces in terms of economic, employment, income and population growth, has witnessed a sustained period of improvement, lifting the region’s residential property prices 8.98% in the last year and almost 22% since the depths of depression five years ago. Home owners are confident once more. Sellers have the upper hand with like for like condominium apartment and townhouse sales up 28 per cent in the first two months of the year and owners of family homes enjoying fast sales in what is still an undersupplied market.

As in years gone by, buyers have to fight hard for the properties they want, making securing finance quickly, against the backdrop of tighter mortgage insurance and mortgage-lending standards, a top priority.

And that is all before the crisis in Ukraine escalated to its current perilous state making the outlook for those raising finance a little less certain in the coming months, as Calgary mortgage broker The Lender Guy explains:

 

Calgary Mortgage Broker Warns Buyers “Beware Ukraine Factor.”
The Lender Guy

“The economic outlook for Canada and especially for Alberta, is positive with prosperity firmly rooted in the energy sector. Our performance during the financial crisis and throughout the recovery has been exemplary relative to most advanced economies but the recovery is still fragile, as the impact of last year’s devastating floods remind us.”

“Regional difficulties can affect attitudes significantly but when you get global superpowers going head to head on an issue like Ukraine’s sovereignty, the entire world’s money markets can get jumpy which is a much bigger problem for us all.”

“Stock markets, institutional investors and lenders get nervous when conflicts occur. Risk is elevated. Banks are forced to consider their rates and the knock on effect can be higher repayments, decelerating monthly price increases for existing homes and a declining number of housing starts. The tide turns and no-one has the upper hand: sellers can’t find buyers because buyers can’t get the finance they need.

“That’s why it’s imperative for anyone visiting a Calgary mortgage broker to consider their next move carefully. The crisis in Ukraine may come to nothing. Then again, it could lead to severe geo-political upheaval. If you’re considering a sale in Calgary, you may be wise to accelerate your plans while the market is buoyant. If you’re a buyer, you might want to move more quickly and secure the best available rates now.”

Global economic conditions often influence commodity prices and economic growth for commodity-rich countries, such as Canada, and while leading economists expect global growth will gain momentum this year, to an annual rate of more than three per cent, the bank of Canada’s projections see household debt, housing prices and housing starts levelling off before gradually declining in real terms.

Faminoff, a mortgage associate with Axiom Mortgage Solutions with a vast knowledge of mortgages and loans, gained over the last decade, concludes: “Regardless of their political leanings, around the world, major investors, multi-national financial institutions, governments and even humble homeowners will be watching the developing crisis in Ukraine hoping not just for the avoidance of bloodshed but also for a swift resolution so that the green shoots of economic recovery can continue to bloom.”

 Notes:

Known as The Lender Guy, Ken Faminoff is based at Suite 1320, Bay 327-2335-162nd Avenue SW Calgary Alberta T2Y 4S6. A mortgage broker, with Axiom Mortgage Solutions since 2009, he previously worked as a bank manager, lender and mortgage underwriter with HSBC Finance, ATB Financial in Calgary and S&R Mortgage Group in Calgary.

Born and raised in Penticton British Columbia, Faminoff has been a resident of Calgary since 2002 where he has developed something of a specialism for handling self-employed, new to Canada and private mortgages, foreclosures and credit repair cases. Dealing with a range of lenders, from triple-A rated institutions to private investors, he has completed over 350+ mortgages as a mortgage associate to add to well over 1,500 mortgages and loans he secured for bank clients.
