This is about how to get your Nikken business to work for you instead of you working for it.
You know the difference between a job and a business, right? A job requires you to be present all of the time in order to get paid. A business on the other hand allows you to step away for a short time and will still make you money.
For the month of December, I spent most of the first part of the month helping a new team member get his business started and the last part of the month I spent with family for the holidays. I spent almost no time at all on my own business. Looking back over the almost 3 years I have been doing this, December was still one of my top 5 months.
How I manage to do this is by building my Nikken business online. There is nothing tricky about this and anybody with a computer and internet connection can do it. It just involves a self-hosted blog (not WordPress.com or Blogger.com) then creating pages and posting regularly. If you can write a document using Microsoft Word then you already have the necessary skills. I have been helping my team and a few friends do this for a few months now.
Benefits to Building your Nikken Business Online
You can work from home. Most network marketers are drawn into this business with the promise of a home-based business but it still requires them to be away from home for several hours a day looking for prospects and attending meetings. By building my business online I attract customers and prospects to my website without having to leave home.
You can work when you have time. Another promise that attracts network marketers is the concept of time freedom. Even after several years most people in network marketing still don’t have that time freedom. Working online you can work when you have time. I get to take my kids to school and pick them up afterwards. I do most of my work in the morning during the week while they are at school and I am available to them when they get home. Definitely much better than a job. If I want the time to do something else then I have it. I can always write that blog post in the morning before everyone else wakes up.
Even though I do have the time freedom, I do still have to work on my business. Blog posts have to be written, follow-up emails need to be sent to customers, and I have to take a phone call from time to time. I just get to choose the time when most of this gets done.
You are always open for business. The internet is (almost) always available and your website is a salesman and prospector that works for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. My blogs posts are attracting customers and prospects when it is most convenient for those customers and prospects. Sometimes that is in the middle of the night while I am sleeping. It is always fun to get up in the morning and see that your sales volume has increased.
Here’s to your freedom!
