There are plenty of reasons for not starting a company. Odds are good that starting a company will not make you rich or famous. Only 1 in 10,000 funded startups become worth more than $1 billion, venture capitalist Mike Maples Jr. told me in a recent interview. I am not sure how scientific that number is, but let’s assume that it’s close enough to indicate that starting a company is not a sure road to riches. Another reason for not starting a company is not enjoying the experience of working for a boss. Sure, there are plenty of entrepreneurs who like to determine how…

The 4 Tests To Tell If You’re Ready To Be An Entrepreneur

Well, the time has come to say something that has me dealing with a bit of “mixed emotions”. You see, I’ve decided for several reasons that the relationship between Facebook & me is a bit dysfuntional on many levels.  So, I’ve decided it was best that we spend some time apart so we can both “find ourselves”  But at the SAME time I’m excited because during this “time apart” I’m devoting more time to working in “the lab” to get some MAJOR projects done that I have in the works. Oh I know this seems like some marketing ploy or…

With these tips you can get more accomplished and grow your online business faster without spending a fortune.  Mind you – some may seem too simple. But years of trial and error have taught me that these methods flat out work at bringing about extraordinary results. 1.

wish

If you are like me and have been around the home business and network marketing arena, the topic of “getting in on the ground floor” always comes up, especially when talking about some of the big and successful companies in the industry. When talking about some of the “giant companies” in the industry … someone invariably says: “Man, I wish I got in on the ground floor when that started”.  C’mon, you’ve heard it, you may have even said it but probably most of us have thought that!  You know I’m right!   Because we know that if we did get…

I think my most favorite trainings and lessons come from the “war stories” told by these mentors. Real world anecdotes and stories that really crystallize the challenges that network marketers face.

There’s a lot of talk in the media about how the concept of telecommuting and home based business is changing the field of small business. Today, small businesses may be the corner store, a well-known franchise, a network marketing program housed in someone’s living room. A small home based business has the potential to completely transform your life, creating a freedom that is rarely found in any other type of business model.
