Home Based Internet Marketing Business: Is it for you or not ? 

Home Based Internet Marketing Business  is becoming more and more popular and growing rapidly. There are two  main reasons for this:

1. the ease of use and availability of the internet worldwide

2. the ongoing bad economic situation which has led to rapid  increase in unemployment in many countries including USA and UK, for example.

For these reasons, many people are turning  to setting up their business in their own home.

Thinking about starting a business from home?

If you are, you might like to think about some of the advantages and disadvantages of  running a new business from home which I list below.

A.  Main Advantages of Running an Internet Business from Home.

1. Low cost : This is because the business is  run from home. So, you can save the cost of hiring an office, as well as saving the cost and time of transport.

2. Relative ease of client  attraction: There are many established ways of getting traffic and building a list of customers and potential customers in on-line  business. These can be learned with relative ease, compared with offline  businesses.

3. Convenience:  By working from home you can plan your work  around other commitments and work flexibly, choosing your work hours  in a way that suits you most. This can be especially helpful if you have family commitments, for example children or elderly relatives needing care.

4. A home-based business can be very profitable and your profit can be based on how hard and smart you work.   That means unlimited income, compared with fixed salary.

5. Freedom from working with bad employers or bad line – managers.

B. Main Disadvantages  of Running a Home-Bases Internet Marketing Business   

1. In order to succeed, you need to establish yourself as a provider of of valuable content to your customers. This requires hard work, especially because of the continuous and rapid change of  internet and internet marketing. You must keep learning and keep up-to-date.

2. Fierce competition: but, there is always room for success in internet marketing.

3.  When working from home, you are on your own boss and responsible for everything like planning, organising and managing your business as well as learning new skills all the time.

4. Even the best performers as employees, working under someone else´s direction, can be the least suitable for running their own home-based business.

I learned  this fact the hard way years ago , when I was running my own Management  Training and Consultancy business. For one   of my projects , I chose a manager whom I had known to be  an excellent trainer and consultant in management when working as an employee for a father figure  and under close  direction/ supervision. When he took responsibility for this project on his own, he made a real mess of it because of his inability to organise himself, manage his time and work for himself.

So, please be careful when considering whether or not to start your internet marketing business.  Don´t  be fooled  by so much internet marketing hype. There are no “easy money” opportunities on the internet.

But there are plenty of real opportunities if you are prepared to work. The key is to treat your internet business as a long-term business, not as push-button magic!

I hope the above  lists of advantages and disadvantages are of some help to you in deciding if internet marketing is right for you.

Good luck to you in whatever you decide.

7 Best Tips For Starting Internet Marketing

7 Best Tips For Starting Internet Marketing

Best  Tips for New Internet Marketers

I started in internet marketing about four years ago. Like most internet marketers, I’ve  made many, many mistakes.

These mistakes have cost me years in time and thousands of dollars.

I hate to see others making the same mistake. So, here are my seven best tips to avoid them:

Tip 1: Don’t Rush It : learn internet marketing skills before starting your business .

You need to understand how internet marketing works before starting any  internet marketing business. In order to succeed, you need to acquire a lot of knowledge and skills.

My advice is that you spend at least six  months  acquiring all the necessary knowledge and  learning all basic skills  of internet marketing.

Get-rich quick methods, at worst  just don’t work and at best, are unsustainable.

Tip 2Follow An Honest And Successful  Internet Marketer:

Before starting your business , you need to identify an honest and successful internet marketer to follow and join their newsletter.

Tip 3: Seek Personal Coaching :  If you can afford it, have a mentor and receive personal coaching from him or her. I did not do that first and as a result I lost a lot of time and money.

Most internet marketers waste more time and money trying to work out things for themselves than those who start with a mentor .

Paying a coach or a mentor is very cost-effective . You´ll get a high rate of return for your investment in the services of a mentor.

Tip 4: Avoid Information Overload:

Unfortunately, there are too many dishonest internet marketers around , who´ll bombard you with all sorts of unnecessary information and useless products, using clever marketing skills and psychology to make you buy their products and services.

You don’t need every new product. All you need is to understand the basics of internet marketing and a good, honest and successful marketer to follow. The mentor will help you choose your niche and the business model and system.

Stick to one business model until you master it. Do not give up too soon !

When you have succeeded in one internet marketing business model, you will have a choice between taking your business to a higher level  or starting another new business model.

Tip 5: Think Of Internet Marketing As A Long Term Business:

Like any other business, you need to build your internet marketing business over a long period of time, before you reap any benefit.

Tip 6: Don´t Aim At Making Money Immediately:

If you need cash urgently, you´d better get a part- time job and do internet marketing part- time, until your business brings in enough money for you to live on.

Tip 7: Develop The Right Mindset:

Try to be positive at all times. Always see the glass half full rather than half empty.

I know this is easier said than done, but whenever  you feel low, remind yourself of the Chinese saying ” I wept because I had no shoes , until  I saw a man with no feet. ”

Be determined and persevere to succeed.  Set realistic, measurable and time bound goals that you can monitor and correct if necessary.

Focus on achieving your goal at all times and never let distractions stop you from achieving your goal.

Remember this quote:

” If you think you can, you are right . And if you think you can’t, you are right too ”

So, the choice is yours, my friend!

Those are my top tips, based on my personal experience. Do you have other tips which would help anyone starting out on internet marketing today?…

…If you do, please share them in your comments.

Positive Thinking and Problem Solving

 

Positive Thinking and Problem Solving

However lucky we are, life is bound to throw some problems at us, big or small. We don’t want to anticipate trouble, but need to be prepared for difficulties when they arrive. Often it is not the size of the problem, but our response to it, which determines its effect on us.

You can come out of the furnace of trouble two ways: if you let it consume you, you come out a cinder; but there is a kind of metal which refuses to be consumed, and comes out a star.” – Jean Church

What metal are you made of ?

 

problem-solvingWhen you don’t know where to turn when faced with a problem, turn to yourself. Everything you need is already within you. Start organizing. Instead of getting tensed and stressed out, calm yourself. You can’t think and focus when you’re emotionally overwhelmed; and you certainly can’t solve a problem in that state. Your decisions at that moment will be completely out of focus.

Sigmund Freud said:

“The chief duty of a human being is to endure life.”

Do you agree with Freud’s idea above ?

I don’t !

Thank goodness there’s more to life than that! How awful to go through life simply enduring!

Don’t just endure life — enjoy it!

The first thing you must acknowledge is that life isn’t necessarily a bowl of cherries. Things might be difficult, but not impossible. Remember, the impossible just takes a little longer to do or solve.

Be courageous! Sometimes, it’s not enormous challenges that frighten us, but just the idea of doing something different – stepping outside the comfort zone. The trouble with a comfort zone is that it can turn into a very deep rut and we become trapped in it.

Don’t stay in the rut. Pull yourself out; challenge yourself. Try something completely different. Get out of your comfort zone.

Does it terrify you to step outside that very comfortable zone?

It doesn’t have to be a giant leap forward. Try just taking baby steps. Just don’t be afraid to take the next step and the next. Before you know it, all those baby steps will add up and you’ll discover you’re on your first road trip!

Don’t be afraid of failing. Failure isn’t fatal or permanent; and it can actually help you towards success. At the very least, you learn how not to do something.

Fear is a nasty habit that eventually develops a defeatist attitude. If what you’re trying isn’t working, try something new and different. Adopt the “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” attitude.

Robert Frost said:

“The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.”

Remember:

1. Some days, you’ll feel like you’re on the road to nowhere . There will be days when you’re just bored or frustrated, asking yourself if this is all there is. It may even feel like you’ll never be happy again.

2. Tough times are going to come, that’s just part of life. You’re going to get frustrated and disappointed, and you will be faced with problems. That’s life. There’s no way things will be wonderful all the time.

How would you learn to appreciate wonderful times if you didn’t experience hard ones now and then?

How can you appreciate pleasure if you don’t occasionally suffer pain ?

How can you enjoy light if you never experience darkness?

How can you enjoy wealth if you have never experienced poverty?

You can only enjoy rainbows after a storm!                    rainbow

So, how do you avoid the defeatist attitude?

For starters, don’t talk defeat. Whether it’s defeat or acceptance, you can talk yourself into either one. Use good, hopeful words, and never talk down to yourself or to others. Remember, you can if you think you can.

You’ve heard the expression, “he’s his own worst enemy.” Don’t be your own worst enemy; be kind to yourself. Find your own potential. You have it within you, it’s there if you just look for it.

William A. Ward said:

“Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.”

Do you often feel fearful? Do you feel inadequate or inferior? Do you feel you need to be doing something exciting all the time, or be around other people constantly, to avoid the fear of being alone?

When faced with a fear, do not shrink from it. This allows that fear to increase in size, making you even more fearful of it. Face it squarely, look it in the eye, and take action! Then watch as that fear begins to shrink and diminish right in front of you.

Theodore Roosevelt said:

“I have often been afraid, but I wouldn’t give in to it. I made myself act as though I was not afraid and gradually, my fear disappeared.”

Life can be a bed of roses. Instead of telling yourself that those roses have thorns, try it this way: those thorns have some beautiful roses!

According to Zig Ziglar,

“You cannot tailor- make the situations in life, but you can tailor- make the attitudes to fit those situations before they arise.”

In conclusion, I have emphasized the importance of positive thinking in facing any problem and finding a solution to it. I sincerely hope that the next time you face a problem, you will find the strength within you to face it positively  and effectively.

End of post4

I start my day by reminding myself of the many blessings I enjoy.

Amongst these I think with gratitude of my primary, intermediate and secondary level education in Iraq with its emphasis on civic and personal responsibilities and the treasure of learning poetry by heart.

I am also very grateful for my B.Eng and M.Sc . degrees  from UK universities.

But, most of all I am grateful for the broad cultural education I have gained internationally through my work as an International  Management Consultant and Trainer, over more than 20 years . This is because exposure to various cultures can broaden your mind and teach you  many valuable  lessons in life.

It teaches you that human beings are  basically the same : with the same instincts and desires wherever they may be. The differences between people are products of circumstances, such as parental teaching, the culture of the society they live in and their socio – economic circumstances.

It teaches you to be tolerant of other peoples cultures, attitudes and behaviour. You no longer think  that any deviation from your own standards is wrong and unacceptable!

It prevents you from becoming so judgemental that you divide people into good and bad, into civilised and uncivilized, into deserving and undeserving.

It stops you from becoming blind to your friends’ faults, therefore, supporting them in whatever wrong they may be doing.

It prevents you from demonising the other side and encourages you to understand your differences and to resolve them peacefully

It teaches you to see the other side’s points of view and encourages you to seek contact  with them, instead of writing them off or turning against them and even using brutal force against them.

People tend to exaggerate their  differences  and once  the two opposing sides meet, they are invariably surprised about how much narrower their differences are than their suspicion caused them to believe. This fact became very clear to me when chairing or attending  management and trades union meetings to negotiate their differences.

In short, if we learn to tolerate our differences, we would:

Stop calling each other evil and uncivilised and start seeking better understanding and cooperation  with each other, individually, in groups and nationally.

Stop terrorising each other individually, in groups and nations

If we learn to tolerate differences, our leaders may stop calling each other all sorts of names, or even going to wars against each other that are totally unjustified and can only be explained by ignorance..

If we learn to tolerate our differences, we would avoid marriage breakdowns, atrocities, wars and many evils that our societies suffer from. We would then live more happily with each other. What a wonderful world  would that be!

I pray for proper education and elimination of the curse of ignorance.

I pray for a more tolerant and happier world.

What do you think ? Please share your ideas.

Why there can be No Happiness Without Contentment

As I have  experienced both Middle Eastern and European cultures, I naturally tend to compare these two cultures, in my desire to chose the best from each.

In a visit to Iraq, my native country, in 20o2, after an absence of 28 years, I came to the conclusion that  without contentment there can be no happiness !

I was  expecting to see my relatives and friends, whom I had not seen for 28 yeas, to be unhealthy and miserable, because they had suffered long wars and sanctions.

I was amazed and pleasantly surprised to find them all so healthy, contented and looking well, despite their poverty and long suffering.

When they told me, in detail,  some awful stories about how so many relatives and friends had been killed, we were all in tears. But not  for long because, as soon as one told a sad story, another one would come up with an extremely funny joke  to get everyone laughing.

In two weeks with them, I was emotionally drained  with the roller -coaster of emotions. It took me about three months on my return to the UK to get back to my normal self.

I was all the more amazed when I saw so many of my  friends in the west expressing sadness,   while they had  all they needed to be happy!

In the west, many of us seem to have lost our contentment and ability to live simply! As soon as we achieve one objective, we create another one, which we don’t really need.  We tend to spend our lives achieving one desire after an other.  Consumerism takes control,  leaving us little time to  form relationships and to help each other, because  we spend most of our time in pursuit of  unnecessary desires. We end up without real contentment and, hence, no real happiness .

So my New Year Resolution is to live as simply as possible, make time for nurturing relationships, help anyone  I can, look for happiness from within, be content, and always remember the Chinese wise saying:

” I wept because  I had no shoes until I saw a man with no feet ”

I wish you all  contentment and happiness .

I would appreciate any comment,

How to Expect the Best and Get It! …… Part 2

How to Expect the Best and Get It!  …… Part 2 Please read part 1 under the same title ( if you have not already read it. )

Take inspired action. Now, begin to see that ultimate goal; that dream in your mind.

Whatever it is, picture it in your mind in detail.

If it’s your dream home, see it in your mind, expand it, decorate it, even picture yourself walking inside it.

If your goal is a dream job, picture that – see yourself in the job, doing the work you love, interacting with others.

If your dream is to own your own business, see it in your mind, figure out all the steps to achieving that goal.

But always see yourself succeeding at whatever that dream happens to be. there will be struggles, but always picture a successful outcome. Expect a miracle.

If your ultimate goal is to meet the exact perfect person for you, someone special in your life, you have to put yourself out there, in order to meet that special someone. Hiding at home won’t find you that significant other you desire.. Find places to have fun and you’ll find others looking for that fun too.

Be willing to meet and greet. Apply what you’ve learned about a positive attitude and avoid negativity by all means. Be your own positive, creative self and enjoy having fun. Your attitude will draw other people to you like a moth to a flame.

Someone with a happy, joyful nature automatically attracts others. They just naturally want to be around someone who exudes joy and happiness. Who knows — you might just find your soul mate!

Another way to show gratitude is to exhibit appreciation to those who make a difference in your life, even in little ways. Notice even the little things they do for you. Compliment them on their appearance or their great ideas. Make note of their efforts, even if those efforts don’t produce positive results. Say thank you, remember their birthdays, send them flowers.

Most importantly, tell your friends and family how important they are to you. On the subject of gratitude, Marianne Williamson had these words for us: “Gratitude has a cleansing effect on the soul, healing us from the inside out. When something good happens and we give thanks for it, then its positive effect expands within us.”  She also encourages us to keep gratitude journals, stating that:”gratitude is an opener of locked-up blessings.”

She also said: “Gratitude journals are not just lovely, they work. When we say ‘thank you’ we  are reminded of our place in the great and grand design of things.”

If you’re on the path to success and positive thinking, gratitude is not only a good idea, it’s essential in your personal and professional growth.

Gratitude will dispel the negative feelings and keep you on the right path. By spending your days expecting miraculous things to happen, thinking in your mind that miracles will start to occur, you actually bring them into your life. You’re focusing on the positive rather than the negative. It’s similar to abundance – you begin to draw it towards you, instead of chasing it away.

You have more emotional strength available to you than you ever dreamed possible. Remember to give yourself time and space to grow and learn, to believe in your own special power, and to be happy. Don’t discount your personal value and don’t let anyone else de-value you either. Know in your heart what you’re capable of; know your strengths and weaknesses.

Enjoy life and all it has to offer. There will be bad times, but there will always be good times too. Keep in mind that you can’t have one without the other. Life may slap you in the face now and then, but learn from your mistakes. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start again.

Don’t make the same mistakes. Make different ones this time. You’ll be stronger each time something happens and you’ll be better able to handle things the next time.

Learn constantly. Stretch your mind! As Oliver Wendell Holmes said: “A mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.”

Please Remember this:  Gratitude is the best attitude. If you like this post, please share it and  leave your comments.

I’d love to hear from you-let’s share ideas. Till we meet again, Good Luck.  I wish you all the best in all your efforts to achieve success and happiness in your business and personal life .

How to Expect the Best and Get It! …… Part 1

How to Expect the Best and Get It!  …… Part 1

“Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To

the fearful, it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the

hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is

inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.” – King Whitney, Jr.

The dictionary says a miracle is a wonderful or surpassing example of some quality.

We should expect great things, and stop expecting the worst in every situation. Expect something miraculous, and you might just be happily surprised.

Thomas A. Edison said: “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

Do you believe that you can actually create your own happiness?

Yes, you can, but you must first choose to be happy.

Abraham Lincoln once said:

“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

You may ask: “But how can I create my own happiness?”

The best way to show your happiness, and indeed to increase that happiness or create it, is to show gratitude.

Show gratitude to the people in your life who have touched you, lifted you up, and taught you the important life lessons. This will increase the positive energy flow and will influence others to be grateful too.

When the days seem dark and you’re wondering what happened to the positive sunshine in your life, think of those who taught you how to enjoy life.

Expect miracles. Learn to count your blessings; find some every day and write them down.

Listing your blessings will magnify your positive attitude and emotions. Each day, see if you can find ten things to be grateful for in your life. It may be large blessings some days and tiny ones the next, but they all count.

Once you’ve decided what your ultimate dream is, begin to take steps to get you where you want to go.

Keep your dreams alive. Set your goals and keep them. Each time you accomplish a step towards a goal, make a note of it and pat yourself on the back; congratulate yourself. Your self-esteem will improve and you’ll strive even harder towards your dreams.

I wish you happy and fulfilled dreams during this year-and hopefully even some miracles! I’d love to hear about them.

My solution to my New Year Resolutions!

imageforabbasblog

Finally … I have a solution to my New Year’s Resolution!

Another year has ended and it is the first week of January again, the time to join the crowd in making New Year’s Resolutions .

But, this year it is going to be different  for me….  entirely different!

Do you want to know how?

I will tell you !

In trying to understand why so many of us fail to achieve our New Year’s Resolution, I  have  come to the conclusion that :

a. we don’t  take our resolutions  very seriously .

b. we forget that there is no gain without pain: we want the pleasure, but not the pain.

c. we fail to treat our resolution as a project with goals.

d. our short-lived pleasures and daily routines take over and we eventually forget our resolution.

Therefore, I have decided that , to start with, I am going write down my first New Year’s Resolution as follows :  “To go away from the madding crowd and stop treating the New Year’s Resolution as a “to do  list”  for the first week of January, as  I did  last year and the year before  and the year before that! “

This year, I am going to treat my resolutions as projects. 

That means I am going to set my business and personal goals in a very  S.M.A.R.T way:

S =  Specific

M = Measurable

A = Attainable/ Achievable

R= Reasonable

T = Time – bound

For those who say:  “I will exercise  more”  or “I will drink less” or “I will quit smoking”  or “I will eat more healthily” , my advice  would be this-

Instead of just saying what your resolution is , say I will :

1. write down the list of my goals that are necessary  for achieving my resolution.

2. set priorities for these goals.

3. write them down in order of priorities

4. take each goal in turn and plan for it in detail :

– breakdown each goal into a number of targets

– plan for each target  :  specifically , in a way that makes it possible to measure progress, taking care that it is realistic and achievable ( not too hard, nor too easy to achieve ) and time- bound.

Here are some examples to illustrate the method.

Example A:  “I want to exercise more”

1. Decide, with the help of experts or specialists, what kind of exercises you need.

2. Plan your exercises as daily tasks (say 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes before going to bed in the evening ), increasing  them to 20 minute in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening within 3 months.

3. Monitor your progress , to identify deviations from your plans and to take corrective actions.

Example B: If you wanted to drink less alcohol, my advice would be the following :

1. Decide how much less to drink within the year.

2. Translate that to monthly units of reduction

3. Translate this to weekly reduction

4. If necessary, translate this into daily reduction

5. Monitor progress , take corrective action

Example C:  To quit smoking

In this case, you can follow  a similar plan to that  in Example B above to quit smoking.

Example D:  To eat healthily :

Instead of saying “I will eat healthily”:

1. consult with a dietician and decide what to eat and what not to eat

2. decide how much ( by what % ) to reduce your food intake

3. follow a similar plan for setting your targets,  monitoring progress and taking corrective actions to that in Example A, B or C.

 

Most importantly give a copy of your plan to your partner, or a friend or at least tell them about it , so that you have someone to whom you will be accountable.  Also agree a regular weekly plan for review of your progress  for each of your goals.

I told my wife, Judy, that I was going to write this post today as part of my New Year Resolution to blog more regularly.  Although it is 1st January and I was feeling tired, I made the effort to get up early as I had extra motivation to write it because I felt accountable to her (she is a hard task master ……joking !) .

What is your New Year’s  Resolution ?

Did you have one for 2013 ?  If so, did you succeed  or fail in achieving it?  Why ?

Your comments and feedback will be most appreciated!

All the best wishes for the success of your New Year’s Resolution.

Happy New Year from us both.

On Mandela Day, are you listening?

Did you know that today, 18th July, is World Listening Day? I have to confess that until I listened to the radio this morning, I had never heard of it before.

Apparently it is a a day to celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us…of listening to our soundscape.

The day was chosen in honor of the birthday of the Canadian composer, R. Murray Schefer, 80 years old today, as he is a co-founder of the Acoustic Ecology Movement.

A suggested way to mark the day is to organize or take part in a sound-walk or just simply to pay more attention than usual to the sounds around us in our own environment.

I wonder what you can hear in your garden, balcony or street when you stop to listen? Hopefully the sounds are pleasant ones.

Although we live in a small town, it is very quiet outside (except at fiesta time!) but we do hear beautiful birdsong, especially at dawn and at dusk.

Another famous person with a birthday today is Nelson Mandela, celebrating his 95th birthday, sadly from hospital. The day was officially declared Mandela Day by the United Nations in 2009 to recognize Mandela’s contribution to international freedom.

The coincidence of these two special events on the same day, prompts me to connect the two.

Not only is it important to be aware of and listen to the sounds around us: it  is even more important to listen to those voices calling for freedom, equality and all forms of social justice.

We should not automatically label people who speak out as trouble-makers or even terrorists. Remember, Nelson Mandela himself was labelled a terrorist in his country at one time.

Let’s listen to people who have something different to say, especially when the changes they demand are genuinely for the improvement of their own and other people’s lives.

And if it’s your birthday…hope you have a very happy one. You are in good company!

If you enjoyed this post, please share it and  leave your comments.

Let us know what sounds you hear around you and how they affect you.?

Have you spoken  out against injustice – were you heard or not?  How did you feel about it?

I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time, take care and enjoy listening!

Did you know that 97 % of people who start  internet marketing businesses  fail and give up ?

Do you want  to know what kills their business ?

Do you want to avoid these killers in order to achieve internet marketing success ?

You do ?

Here you are then.:

Killer Number 1: Believing that Building a Business is Easy.

Many  internet marketing gurus make out that building an Internet Marketing business is easy. If you  go to your business believing this, you are very likely to fail ? … Why ?

I will tell you why !

Building an Internet Marketing (IM) business is like building any other business. It takes a lot of  time and hard work.

It is definitely not easy ! But it can be done.

Just like  Olympic athletes, in order to succeed,  you need :

–  an incredible degree or amount of  undying desire to succeed .

– focus, determination and persistence.

You will also need  to have :

1. the ability to overcome  failure, benefit from mistakes and turn a challenge into an opportunity.

2. the ability to structure your day and follow a set of rules that you adhere to each day, like:

– getting up early each day, as most successful people do !

– focusing on one activity at a time.

– not  checking your emails until you have done some of the priority tasks first, because  if you check your emails first you will lose momentum.

Killer Number 2: Information Overload.

If you are experiencing what I experienced when I first started my online business, then  you are being bombarded with hundreds of emails each day and:

–  each telling you about yet another fantastic and easy way of making money online.

– each telling you about or giving you one or two pieces of the jig-saw of  the Internet Marketing puzzle, not all the pieces of the whole  picture .

– each pulling you towards their next shiny product.

The effect of all this will leave you confused,  disappointed and disoriented .

What You Need is:

a. to get a good education in IM business essentials before choosing your niche and your business model

b. to get a good education in one business model

c. to follow a blueprint of a successful IM guru in that business model

d. not to move onto another niche or business model until you have  mastered this business model and secured success.

Otherwise, you will end up as a “Jack  of all trades and master of none”.

Had I known all this and followed every piece of advice I am giving, I would have saved myself at least one year and thousands of dollars.

I sincerely hope that you are luckier and wiser than me.

If you follow this advice now and adhere to it,  I am sure you will feel grateful to me later!

If you like this post, please share it and  leave your comments. I’d love to hear from you-let’s share ideas.

Till we meet again, Good Luck.  I wish you clear focus and success in all your efforts..

Abbas Baba
