When Is the Best Time to Start an Online Business?

When is the Best Time to Start an Online Business in Network Marketing?Have you ever thought about starting a business? Maybe an online business in network marketing or affiliate marketing, or even your own product? You know exactly what you want to do, but you’re waiting until you have all your ducks in a row or for when the time is right.

In business I love it when I hear people say that they are going to do something, but they need to wait until the time is right, or until they are ready. It means that I don’t have to give them another thought. I can dismiss them completely (from a business perspective). If they ever do start, which is unlikely, they are going to be so far behind that they won’t matter.

No one is ever ready and the time is never right. That’s just the way it is.

Network Marketing – Choose Your Co-Workers

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. - Jim RohnThere are many reasons why I like network marketing:

  • I work for me and my family, not someone else.
  • I work on my own schedule.
  • I get to decide what I work on.
  • I don’t have to beg for a raise or time off.
  • I don’t have any co-workers to annoy me.

I have another reason to add to that list now.

A few days ago a thought came to me while I was taking a shower (that’s where your thoughts hang out, just waiting for you). This particular thought ticked me off. I don’t remember exactly what it was, but it had to do with truth and beliefs.

Most of these beliefs have to do with the products we use, and why we use them, so I’m going to begin to explore them in my product blog later this week. I want to talk about one aspect of our beliefs here, and it is a great reason for building your own business, whether in network marketing, affiliate marketing, or something else.

Do You Respond to Customers?

When a customer contacts you, do you respond back to them?This sounds like an insane question, right? Of course you respond when a customer calls you. Why even ask such a silly question?

I received a voice mail from a customer the other day, and when I called her back she told me that she had tried to call a few other distributors before me, but I was the only one who returned her call. That blows my mind. Do you respond to customers, or prospective customers, when they contact you?

Do you give away money?

Network Marketing – Use Your Own Words

When you share your network marketing products, use your own words. They will sell better than a third-party brochure.From time to time I work with other distributors with my network marketing company who want to build a website and take their business online. Almost every time their biggest challenge with online network marketing is figuring out what to say about the products on their pages and blog posts.

The technical aspects of building a website are easy to learn and master with repetition. They all get beyond those challenges and get very good at it, if they stick with it. How to deal with the challenge of what to say is a lot harder because there isn’t a simple recipe for it.

My Winding Road to Online Network Marketing

I didn't set out to be an online network marketer. It was a winding road.In my last post about being a great Dad by working from home I told you that I would share the roundabout path that led me from a “normal” corporate job to building an online business in network marketing that allows me to work at home and spend a lot more time with my kids. I’m going to do that now and share more about why I chose to build my network marketing business online.

How to Be a Great Dad (or Mom)

Being able to work from home gives you the opportunity to really connect with your kids and be a great dad.I knew when I got married 13 years ago (13 years ago next month actually) that I wanted to be a dad. Not just a dad, a Great Dad. So, what does it mean to be a Great Dad?

The best memory I have of my Dad when I was young was the one time that he chaperoned a field trip that my class went on one year in school. I don’t remember what year it was but I know it was either elementary or middle school. On that field trip my class visited the local newspaper and saw how newspapers were printed. We visited the local PBS television station and saw all of that worked. Finally, we visited one of the local radio stations.

It was a great day. It’s actually the only field trip I remember from when I was in school.

Network Marketing as an Online Business

Network marketing can make for a great internet marketing businessI’ve read a lot of blog posts and comments on posts recently where people put down network marketing as a good home-based business or online business opportunity. They have modern network marketing all wrong.

They talk about desperate marketers who tell everyone about their business, whether their target is looking for a business or not. Most recently I read a comment that said it was not as good as other home-based businesses because of all the meetings that you have to attend.

I intend to clear up these misconceptions of network marketing and give you a better picture of what it really is, or at least what it can be when it is set up properly with the right company.

How to Earn an Income from Home and NOT Be Tied Down

The goal isn't more money. The goal is living life on your own term. - Chris BroganHave you ever wanted to go on vacation, chaperone your kid’s field trip at school, or take advantage of another opportunity but couldn’t because you had to go to work? Or maybe you own a business where you have to be there everyday to mind the store, ship product, or whatever it is that you do.

I remember when that was me. Before I got married I would put in a lot of hours at work, collect my overtime pay, and save up my money. I was never a very outgoing person, so that was fine for me back then. When I got married and had kids though, that changed. I wanted to be able to do things with my family.

The idea of having to beg for time off from someone else sucks. Your little girl is performing in the school play on Friday afternoon and you are hoping that your boss will let you go. It’s like when you were little and had to ask your parents if you could go play at Billy’s house, except now you’re an adult.
