7 Hot Business Any Student Can Do And Make Money

Before you make the decision to create a small business as a student, there are several key
factors to consider:

Passion And Start-Up Costs
Your business idea must be simple and require minimal start-ups costs, as otherwise you will simply incur additional debt. It be inline with your passion,what you like doing. You should avoid any concept that demands additional lending, and focus mainly on those that can be funded with your existing capital or without capital. To help achieve this, try to target a concept that taps into your existing skills and resources. For example, if you’re a journalism major, put together an underground school paper and sell ad slots to local businesses within the school mart or outside the campus to finance the paper and earn a profit.

The Importance of your Studies
As a student, educational attainment must remain your priority,your primary assignment is the first, With this in mind, your business idea should be relatively easy to manage and not consume a significant amount of your time. This can be measured in accordance with the nature of your degree, paying particular attention to its subject matter, academic level, and the amount of time that you need invest in your studies.

For example, if you have a heavy course load, launching a side business might not be a good
idea at all. Or you may choose to start a seasonal business, such as landscaping, Bar attendant or jamb/GCE tutorial class during school breaks. The best Business Ideas for
Students With these points in mind, i have high lighted the best ideas,the most suitable for any students to do.

both online and offline in your campus notice boards to engaging with social media marketing platforms such as Facebook,

Are You Still Sitting There? Move Out Of Your Comfort Zone Now.

Are You Still Sitting There? Move Out Of Your Comfort Zone Now.


Are you not tired of sitting and waiting? Do you want to make
a difference in your life?
Do you constantly tell yourself that if things were different, you could do this and that? If you are still waiting there, the truth is that nothing is going to change, unless you initiate the change.

Blaming others and blaming circumstances would not make your situation better. Even daydreaming about a different life style, about a
vacation, about a new car, or about a new house is not enough. Wishing you were wealthy, healthy or in love, and at the same time, at the back of
your mind you don't believe you will ever achieve any of these things, would only make the situation worse.

What you feel and believe deep inside you is more powerful than all your resolutions, wishes and
daydreaming. You should work on convincing yourself that these things are possible. When you are convinced you act differently.
Start today even now, not in the future If you want to make changes in your life, they have to start right now, not in some un-defined
future. You are just cheating and frustrating yourself when you procrastinate, when you make empty
resolutions, and when you believe that if circumstances were different you would have been able to do this and that.

Now, this very moment is the time to start any change, the smallest one or the biggest one. If you say, "I'll start tomorrow", you are cheating
yourself, because tomorrow you will again say the same thing. There will always be another tomorrow, yet no change in your life.
Change must start right now, and only you, are responsible for this change. You must devote time
and effort, and make plans, and things will start changing.

There is always a subconscious inner resistance to making changes, even if one does not like his or her life. People feel more comfortable with a familiar situation, even if they don't like it. So, what are you waiting for? Are you going to do something about your life, or just read this article and go on with your life? If you do this, tomorrow will be more or less like today, and the day after
too, and so on and on.

If you want to make changes in your life you need to start them now, this very moment, and not tomorrow. So what are you going to do?
You can find all the tools here, at this blog, for making changes in your life. Do you need to be motivated? There are articles about motivation on this blog.
Do you need willpower and self-discipline to be able to take charge of your life, and follow
through with your decisions? Find them here or contact me to speak one on one. You can as well by books .
Do you need business ideas? You can get them here.

I charge you to make today the first step in your journey to a better life!

How to Sell Your Product/Services with Public Speaking.

How to Sell Your Product/Services with Public Speaking.


If are you looking for a way to attract new customers, meet potential prospects or Joint Venture partner and become known as an expert in
your industry? Have you considered Public speaking? Public Speaking can help you achieve all that even more . If you feel like public speaking is not a better option for you because you’re shy , think again.
I’m shy myself , though you may not know it but i still address conferences , crowds and
audiences here in Nigeria. How did i do it? Its all about practice and practice. Public speaking gets easier when you practice. Toastmasters is a great , free organization that
can help you get comfortable speaking in front of a group. I am a member of Rotary International and it did help my public speaking career ,i joined when i was still in higher institution. You can also try simply having a friend record you speaking and play it back so they can
give you an honest critique of your speech patterns , body language and delivery. I did this so many times,my wife will use my smart mobile phone to do the recording while i do a 2 minutes presentation,she will help correct my mistake and today i am perfect. You break into public speaking with a less intimidating situation , like being on a panel
of discussion, teach or give a short speech about any topic of interest.

When you’re starting out in public speaking , it is best to think small. Fortunately , speaking in front
of small groups like sunday class in your church, teach children or clubs on a benefits for your business.
Begin by figuring out what market you want to reach. For example , if you own a gardening flower business, you might want to attract residential clients or owners of commercial facilities that
needs to decorate their compounds and environment with the tough of nature. Next thing is to determine where those customers are
likely to be found. In the example above , you could speak to homeowners’ associations or
gardening clubs if you’re trying to attract residential customers ; for the commercial facilities , you could find landlord organizations
and speak to those groups .

Find out what type of subject matter will both be relevant to your target customers and also serve your business . For instance, the
Gardener could speak to residential customers about choosing the right kinds of plants for different seasons, how to keep your home fire -
safe with landscaping or how to prevent pests. For the commercial facilities you could talk about
trends in landscaping or how to increase curb appeal. You want to talk about things that your
business is able to provide for them , so there is a natural tie- in between what you talk about and
what you can do.

Promote the event. Use press releases , email marketing, your website and social media to let
the local community know about the event. Depending on the venue , you may want to alert local media as well. You can even offer to write an article on the topic you’ re speaking
about, gaining more publicity.

Gather information about attendees . Have attendees sign up with their names, addresses and emails as part of registering for the event, or
just make a sign - up sheet available at the event for people who want to get mailings or email newsletters from you. You could also do and give out your classic business card
and collect business cards in return with a promise of a free landscaping
consultation.

Give away information. Handouts , brochures, checklists or other free information about both the topic you’ re discussing and your business give people something to hang on to and remember you with. This is also known as adding value to your speech .

Follow up . Dont be pushy , but do follow up after the event with attendees who've indicated
interest in learning more or receiving
communications from your business. The more often you speak in public , the more confident you’ ll grow , until eventually you may find public speaking to be one of your
most successful methods of getting new clients. Can you see that public speaking is a good way to market your business and and remain relevant in your field,it have really helped me a lot. Share this post on your friends social media and lets have your feed back comments. Think Positive.

Ways to Increase Sales In Your Small Business.

Ways to Increase Sales In Your Small Business.


Are you struggling to get your business stand tall among other competitors ? Wish to close
more sales , but not sure how to do so with your limited resources? Don't, worry about it because i will give you a key to achieve success. Here are few ways to increase your small business sales.

* Narrow Your Target Market
Focus and direction in business is everything , but doing so is often hard for small businesses owners who worry that narrowing down their target market will leave them with very few customers left to go after. Don't you know that focusing on a particular segment of the market is a vital way to get customers to notice you and trust you to be an expert in your field. Being an expert in your field brings credibility, business and referrals . But you have to work it out to gain a better recognition.

If you want to position yourself as an
expert, here :

* Rank Your Targets
Another way to pinpoint your target market is to rank prospects according to profitability .
Anyone can do this, from accounting firms to tutoring. Take a look at your client base ,which one are the most profitable for you? This will help weed out those whose work you really don’t need and those it makes sense to pursue . Alongside profitability , identify the client profiles that have proven to be your most satisfied. These are the ones who are referring your business to
friends and neighbors . Do they represent a particular demographic or live in a certain neighborhood? May be they have a common
challenge or need that can help you fine tune your sales focus.

* Showcase Your Differentiators
Now let’ s add a little introspection to the mix. What makes you different ? Understanding and communicating this can really boost sales, and
shift the focus away from price alone.

* Make Your Slogan to Suit your Targets.
Once you’ ve identified your target and nailed your differentiators, review your messaging and
marketing programs to make sure you’ re touching the right customers with a relevant message . You
might also need to consider your company name and branding to ensure it hits home and reflects
your niche .

* Sell And Sell More to Existing Customers.
Here’s another exercise that can ride on skyrocket your product or service on your customers ranking research. Once you’ ve identified your loyal and top spending customers , think of ways to offer them more .
It ’ s not as perplexing as it sounds. It can be as easy as setting up a loyalty or VIP program that
offers incentives such as promotions , early access to new products and services, rewards points , etc.
You will agree with me that this form of customer appreciation is great way for keeping you top in their mind ,bringing in more sales and referrals.

* Make Plan for Each Stage of the Sales Cycle. Does your business have a marketing action plan? Do you know how to deal with aware
prospects versus interested prospects? Every stage of the buying cycle is different and deserves
a marketing plan all of its own so that you are ready and prepared to nurture those leads further, until you close a sale , and push for referrals.

* Optimize the Conversion Process
So you have an interested prospect ? Make sure your sales and marketing teams have the tools they need to close the deal. As mentioned above , start by creating a marketing
plan that addresses each phase of the sales cycle awareness , interest, engagement and sale.
Then think about the timeline that accompanies a typical sale and ways you can match your
outreach efforts to keep warming your lead . For example , use your blog or a seminar to create
awareness and earn trust . Then use social media and your website to encourage prospects to sign
up to your email list with the promise of more information and /or special offers . Now that you have an email address and basic
information about a prospect , tailor a personalized marketing outreach campaign to them by registering with any autoresponder company of your choice. Send informative emails once or twice a week and offer more vital information to them. If they still not ready to convert , consider mailing them an offer or promotion and follow up with a sales letter with call to action.
All through this process , you are deepening your relationship with the prospect by offering value ,not just chasing a quick sale . This type of guided selling can really help improve your conversions
dramatically. Share and comments.

How to Combat Negativity In Your Business.

How to Combat Negativity In Your Business.

Are you aware that starting a new business or maintaining an existing one for that matter takes a lot of energy. If the people you come into contact with think you're crazy or marked for failure, it's bound to take a toll on you.
So, what do you do when you feel like everyone around you thinks you’re crazy or bound for
failure, and the cash isn’t rolling in like you want it to.

Here are five things you can do to remove that negativity and apply positive mental attitude!

1. Take stock.
Have you really done the planning and preparation needed to be successful? Do you have something to sell? Are you selling it for enough money to create a self sustaining business complete with paycheck for you? Do you know who your ideal
client is, what pressing problem can you solve for them, and why they should buy from you
instead of the other guy?

2. Only listen to experts.
Everyone has an opinion. But not all opinions are worth paying attention to, so before you listen to what your friends, family or even colleagues have to say, consider the source of the information. If they don’t have
experience building their own successful businesses, and/or they aren’t representative of
your ideal client, take what they say with a big grain of salt.

3. Pay attention to your inner voice.
If one of the negative voices you hear the most, this has to change. Pay attention to the words you think and say. They have tremendous power. Because if you don’t think you’re going to be successful you never be. If you’re seriously struggling with setting fees high enough, marketing your business or making sales you may have mental or emotional block. Often these can be cleared up by an energy worker.

4. Talk it out.
If the people closest to you are the least supportive, sometimes it’s because they don’t understand the reality of what you’re trying to do.
So sell them on it. If you can’t sell the people closest to you on the idea that your business is viable, you’re probably going to struggle to sell anybody. And these are the people you need to understand what you’re trying to do and what you need to be successful. So let them know.

5. Get help.
Even if you’re a solo-entrepreneur you can’t do it all alone. And you certainly don’t know everything. If you’re serious about your success
then find a mentor or hire a coach to guide you down the right path. Not only will they give you a fresh perspective, if they have been done that they can seriously shortcut your path to success.
Hope this article will help you to combat negative believe so that you can have success with the right attitude.

To be a Champion, you must first become a Learner !

To Be A Champion - You Must First Become A Learner!


Sit down relax and ask yourself a question that what do successful have that makes them successful? Ever wonder how those champion
achievers in your company,school
manage, month after month, to
get the most new business, the
biggest bonuses, the largest
paychecks?

Well let me tell you a secret. No one starts out as a Champion but like an ordinary person. Most of them started out like you and me. So what is it that makes a Champion different from the rest people?
Champions have an attitude, a mindset that sets them apart from the rest. But most of these qualities are not exceptional.
Indeed each and every one of us possesses these qualities when we start out in life. But somewhere along the way we tend to lose them
and diminish our own potential.

To be a Champion, you must first become a Learner ! Let me throw more light into it:

1. Champions are Willing to Learn.
Just like children come into this world with an innate desire to learn, to understand the world around
them. They're like sponges observing and absorbing every fact, every reaction. Because they know that their very survival depends on
it. One of the most important qualities we need to succeed in business is a willingness to learn - to be teachable.
To become a champion, you must be willing to educate yourself or be educated, to read about, learn and absorb all the things you need to
know, even if they are completely new to you. If you don't, you're doomed to fail from the
start. If your not informed,you will be deformed.

2. Champions are Willing to Act.
Have you notice how children completely geared towards action? As soon as they learn a new
skill, they want to put it into action.
Just the way they practice things they see in movies. Champions are the same. They put their newly
learned skills to use, taking concrete steps to improve their performance, so they can take their business to the next level.
They know that they must act on what they have learned, even if they haven't perfected it.

3. Champions are Not Afraid to Fail.Just as a child picks itself up again and again, every time he/she falls while taking its first steps,
champions are not afraid to fall down or fail. The problem lies when he cant stand up.
They know that failure is the best teacher. They learn from their mistakes and keep fine-tuning
their methods till they succeed.
Champions have the courage to fall down and not be discouraged. They pick themselves up and keep trying.
They never quit.

4. Champions are Willing to Adapt
Darwin got it wrong. Survival does not happen to the Fittest, but to the Most Adaptable. As children, we adapt to long-term change
relatively easily. We are more willing to accept situations and adapt our behavior accordingly.
Unfortunately, as we grow older, we become more rigid in our thinking, unwilling to accept that there may be better ways of doing things.
In a changing business scenario, resistance to change makes us obsolete. We end up losing
out to players with a better understanding of changing trends.
Champions are those who can adapt
themselves and their business to changing trends.

5. Champions are Willing to Innovate
Children are extremely inventive beings. They come into this world with no preconceived notions of doing things. In their minds there are
no limits to what they can do or how they can do it.
Champions apply these very principles to take their business to the top. They not only learn from what has been done before. They find ways of doing it more
efficiently, more cheaply, more successfully. You don't have to be like a child in all respects
to succeed. It's probably not even desirable. But if your pre-conceived notions, fears and hesitation are preventing you from reaching
your goals, try looking at the world through a child's eyes. Be determined to have success. Hope you will change your negative mindset now and do what champions do to obtain the trophy. Think positive.

Turn Your Free Time into a Business Opportunity.

Turn Your Free time Into a
A Business Opportunity.

Nowadays, global trends suggest
that there is a noticeable rise in
the number of women setting up
small creative businesses. They
usually earn extra income from
their entrepreneurial activity on the side, until they are confident enough that it can become their sole occupation. Creative Entrepreneurship Online
Creative entrepreneurship is also preferred by mothers who want to choose the time and
conditions under which they will be working in order to still be able to look after their families.

Their success may spur you to create your own business to supplement your earnings by doing
something you really enjoy doing. From cooking to web design, from writing to knitting, the possibilities are virtually endless. Freelance

With the help of the Internet, you can promote your business worldwide and reach a vast clientele; or target local customers if you feel
that there will be great demand for your product in the particular area in which you are based.
Making the Right Moves When Starting Out,Above all, you should select to specialize in an area that really suits you. Only if you have the
firm willingness to evolve in your creative domain will you develop a base of loyal clientele that will appreciate your work. Naturally, you
need to make your creative business stand out.

One of the first things to consider is to find the perfect name for your business. The online market is now saturated with dot.com
companies. So you'd better find something different that will rings a bell for your customers, depending on the product or service offered; if
you are selling cosmetics for example, you can create a domain name for it,may be like. Org,.biz, .info etc, just remember that hyphens and
numbers should be avoided, as they make it difficult for customers to spot you and even remember the site name.

Then, you should design your website with the intention of
making the usefulness of your products as plain as day.
Growing a Full-Fledged Business
After some time, you may feel ready to make this your full-time occupation. You may consider this quite risky. Yet, sometimes, and
especially when the indications are positive, it is worth taking risks. In various inspiring publicized stories, other successful creative
women relate how their road to success was beset with obstacles; their cases often prove you that you can overcome hurdles even more
formidable than the ones you encounter by using your resourcefulness.

Practical thinking is of vital importance; whenever possible, save
some money; restructure your budget; and develop a back-up plan.
No one can guarantee success. It is only through persistent work and genuine commitment that you can eventually establish yourself as an entrepreneur. Even if you make it,
it will be difficult to maintain a thriving business in the long run; besides, unforeseen circumstances may force you to go back to
square one. Think Positive.

Not Doing Enough Research.

Before you start any business you should do your research gather enough information and find out if there is market for your product or service. If you don't have the

should take advantage of their weaknesses and offer better services or products.


Failing To Market The Product/ Service

Many small businesses believe that they only need to open a store and customers will flow in, this is a white lie. For you to have customers you need to market your business.

market your business before you even open it. Once you have identified your customers you
should visit them and talk to them about the store that you are planning to open soon.


Doing It Alone

While you are an entrepreneur and very independent, you shouldn't try to run your business alone-you should surround yourself with the people who will provide you with
support and advice. These people can be accomplished businessmen or close and supportive family members that will guild and give you insight. Although, you might be having limited resources, it's wise sometimes to hire people to do the work that may take you many hours of your time. For example, if you find it hard to do bookkeeping you should consider hiring a bookkeeper to do the work for you. This way you will grow faster as you will be
concentrating at the things that are of great importance to the success of your business.

These are the pot-holes that you need to avoid when starting your business. For faster growth
of your business it's always wise that you have a mentor with you.
If you can work those mistakes,you will achieve success when you kick start your own business. Think positive.

Let Your Life Be a landmark For Success

Let Your Life Be a landmark For Success.

What is dream? Goal? Vision?What will you be remembered for in this world? In your community and family? Did you ever think that you are not playing the role which you
should play in your life?
Don't you think that you are born
to play a leading role, a much
bigger role in the real drama of your life? What is holding you back then from playing a vital role in life? Is it your own short sightedness!
Well, in order to play a bigger role in life you need to visualize a bigger picture of yourself. Once you
have that picture in front of you, it will be much easier for you to paint that picture into reality.

I have developed the habit of looking the mirror every morning and say "I have to play a bigger role in life". These simple words make my day, a wonderful day, every day,
because i am determined to play a bigger role in life, keeps my mind in supreme working condition, fully prepared for playing a bigger and bigger, and much bigger role in life and this have helped me build my mind set to overcoming other life obstacle that may come my way . No surprise, my every day is getting better than yesterdays.

Every night, before going to bed, I visualize that tomorrow is going to be better than today. And it happens! Yes, it happens!! While your body muscles need some kind of
daily physical exercise, your brain tissues also need some dose of daily inspirational exercise to motivate it. It is, therefore, important to keep yourself motivated all the time.

You need to clearly define, preferably in writing, every single detail of your big dreams and ambitious goals. You must try to bring out a bigger YOU out of your own small you so that you van be able to reach those big goals. Never think of living an ordinary person's life! It's not your way of life. Let me remind again that you are born to play a leading role, a much bigger role in the real drama of your life. Your confidence in yourself to reach your goals with strong determination to set new records of
excellence, are your biggest assets. You are not far from playing a bigger role in life! Let your life reflect success for others.....your legacy is your life,let your live be a great LANDMARK.

7 Ways to re-position your Website

7 Ways to re-position your
Website


Is your business slightly slower
than usual. But it's always a
good time to take stock of what's
working for you, and what needs
some attention - including your
Web site! Here are my suggestions for a great tune-up audit - take a fresh look at your site and your
promotional strategy with these pointers:

1. Is your site appealing to all your markets? Do you have different potential buyers for different aspects of your products and services? Is there content on your site that's
designed for each of these? Have you considered whether your Web audience might be different from your traditional markets, and if
so, whether you can exploit that?

2. Does your content engage your visitors? Your site should be written from your visitors' point of view, not yours. Does your home page
clearly recognize why the reader might be there- what's in it for them, and why they should care? What are the problems or issues that
they might have, and how will you solve them?

3. Can you make your case?
If you claim that your products or services achieve results, do you have clear content on your site that substantiates this? Do you have
case studies, sample client lists, and
testimonials from happy customers? Third party endorsements are worth far more than your own promotional text, and they should be spread throughout your site, not relegated to a separate page that few visitors will go to.

4. Do you position yourself as an expert? One of the most effective ways to get exposure is to publish articles, and white papers around
your area of expertise. Even if you sell widgets, you can help people get the most out of using them! Articles on your site will be picked up by
the search engines, and you can also offer them to publications that your target markets read - always with a link back, or reference to your
site, of course.

5. Do you ask for the business?
Whatever the outcomes that you want from your site, you need to ask for it. Too many Web pages end weakly, with no clear calls to
action. Don't make your visitors have to work to decide what to do next - they won't! Every page on your site should have a strategy -
invite the visitor to interact with you, or go to the next page, but make it easy and obvious.

6. Do you have a diversified promotional strategy? Don't depend on free search engines to get you
traffic. Are you exploring other ways of promoting your site - such as using your content and articles, advertising in e-zines,
appending a signature file to your e-mail, regularly sending updates to your database, and ensuring that your traditional marketing is
integrated with your online activities?

7. Are you reviewing your traffic analysis? Last, but really key - your Website traffic reports will tell you what's working and what
isn't. Without this information, you're really shooting in the dark - what if you were to find that the majority of your hard-earned visitors
never go beyond your home page?
This isn't an exhaustive list, but it's a good start. I hope that your Web site passes the test!

The Price of Resentment and Anger in Marriage

The Price of Resentment and
Anger in Marriage

Its no longer hidden or news that many spouses carry heavy
Big size Ghana-must-bag filled with a collection of anger and resentment from their relationship and marriage. Periodically, they unpack these bag and review every situation in which they feel they were treated unfairly.
"Resentment is an extremely bitter diet, and eventually poisonous. I have no desire to make my own toxins," says Neil Kinnock. Hanging
on to anger and resentment is toxic, and the resulting sludge can slowly poison you. It's easy to lose your perspective about the bigger picture and to be become obsessed with
how things "should" have been and how others "should" have treated you. In your mind, you may visualize yourself zapping the other person
with the perfect verbal comeback or having the opportunity to get even in some way. The more you let your mind gallop in this direction, the
angrier you get and the more you feel self-righteous and justified in your reaction.

When you become mired in anger, resentment,blame, and revenge, you are only hurting yourself. In the process, you put yourself at risk
for experiencing health problems, sleeping difficulties, depression, relationship rifts, and daily agitation. You automatically increase your
stress level and decrease your enjoyment of life. And the longer you carry a grudge, the heavier it gets.
Nothing you do to try to find inner peace will be effective when you are filled with anger and resentment. "If we have not peace within ourselves, it is in vain to seek it from outward
sources," states Francois de La Rochefoucauld.

As long as you hold on to bitter feelings, you are sabotaging yourself by destroying any chance that you can experience peace of mind.
Dr. Wayne Dyer, in "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace," states: "It's your ego that demands that the world and all the people in it
be as you think they should be." He continues by saying, "It is perhaps the most healing thing that you can do to remove the low energies of
resentment and revenge from your life completely." Dr. Dyer compares resentment to venom that continues to circulate in your system long after the snakebite has occurred.
He emphasizes that it's not the bite that kills you; it's the venom.

What, then, is the antidote? How can you find peace of mind? How can you handle your feelings of anger and resentment from the
experiences in your marriage? How can you create a peaceful marriage now? The answer lies in letting go of resentment and practicing forgiveness. You can't change what
has happened, and you can't control what your spouse chooses to do. But you do have control over the choices you make.

You can choose to cut the emotional bond that is keeping you tied to your anger and resentment. Instead, you can decide to experience the joy of freedom from the heavy
burdens you have been carrying around for so long. To get the help you need in letting go of
the past, you always have the option of asking a therapist or minister to assist you. Thomas Fuller observes, "He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven." Without forgiveness, your life becomes an endless cycle of anger, resentment,
and retaliation. You practice forgiveness so that you can stop
ruminating about the past and put your energy into the present moment. And you practice
forgiveness so that you will be free from the poisonous effects of resentment.

Then, you can experience peace of mind and bring that inner peacefulness into your marriage. You will never have a peaceful
marriage until you are at peace within yourself. Remember no one is perfect but only God.

How To Spin-Out Million Dollar Ideas For Your Info-Product

How To Spin-Out Million Dollar Ideas For Your Info-Product


Dear friends,lets move straight to the point, the current study shows that there are more than 100,000,000 registered domain names on the Internet (approx.) Even if we eliminate 30% non-commercial sites we are left with about 70,000,000 sites. All these web site are trying to sell everything from safety pins to Air planes. This clearly states the current state of the commercial Internet were billions of dollars is rolling up and down and the market is full of competition. The question is, how do you survive in this tough competition? This is a context of "survival of the fittest" that is the basic rule. Now it is time to reconsider this definition of
being "fit". Let's look at it this way. Internet is a place where people have started looking for "solutions" rather than mere information. All
sorts of products in the form of podcast, eBooks, mp3,videos ,CD's, white papers, journals are available as "instant downloads" within a few minutes.

The product categories range from solving personal problems such as relationships, dating, health issues etc, Business solutions, hobbies,travel. But the real problem is how YOU can tap into this huge market and make your own money?
The answer to that problem is creativity. Creativity is what makes things easy. But unfortunately many people think that creative thinking is as hard as climbing "22 storey building without a lift". But here is good news. A study in psychology shows that creativity is a habit just like all other habits.
Just take a look at yourself how easily you can walk, talk, laugh, run, cry, hold thing with your hands, write, read...etc. how do you manage to do all that? It is because these have become a habit which you have been doing for couples of years now, some are from birth.

Same is true with creativity. When you position your mind to think creatively what you get is an attitude which will never settle for cheap quality work.
It is far more better working creatively for 30 minutes daily than wasting 4 hours creating cheap quality work. But how do you develop a creative mind?
I will show you an example here to make it clear.

Let's choose a theme and expand it. lets use"Photography" as a theme. When I read the word "photography" I instantly remember following words. "Digital photography, cameras, camera lenses,
photography films, various equipments, learning
photography, locations, lighting effects, outdoor vs. indoor photography, nature, nude, wild life, sports, close-ups, industrial photography, special effects, use of computers , and much more..."
Here you will see that I have expanded the word
"photography" in the form of "keywords" which any search engine will recognize. So finding
information on these topics for research becomes much easier now and it saves time.

Each of the particular keyword above can be again expanded to form an entire ebook or info- product. On top of this, keyword research tools on the Internet can be used very effectively. Some of these tools are available at Overture.com,
Wordtracker.info, Altavista.com (prisma)

Next you can compare the list you have generated with the list which these online tools generate. Minor editing will give you a final list of topics to be converted into an info-product. Once you get this habit of fractionating any given topic into "keywords" many new streams
of ideas emerge, which can be used as raw material for further study. Analyzing any theme in this way will definitely give rise to alternative ways of presenting the same information in various forms,that is what o do.

What does this mean? When you are ready with the final bunch of
chapters, you can convert that in an eBook, CD, an entire website, a free eCourse sent via autoresponder, each chapter can be individually treated as an article etc. Just fine-tune your lessons for your own product or someone else's product and get ready to make millions from the internet or offline. I hope this powerful information will help as a starting point to start generating ideas for your information products. Think Positive.

How To Generate a Hot Topic For Your Product

How To Generate a Hot Topic For Your Product.


Generating a winning product idea to sell and make money offline and online is in YOU. The best topic is always a subject you have
passion for and have knowledge about with experience. Your personal life experiences have taught you a unique set of lessons which is valuable outside their and which lots of people want to learn from to avoid mistakes. Determine what you know that others might find valuable. Yes, you can write a 10 Page short report ebook ,then create a blog on that subject that
will focus on almost any subject you want but you will have a better chance of success, if you choose
a subject you have some experience with. Plus it makes the process of writing much more fun.

Start by brainstorming a list of topics. Get a pad and pen and start by asking yourself these questions below then write down the answers:

1. What are my passionate about?
2. What do i love to talk about?
3. What have i read about?
4. What special knowledge or skill do i have from my job?
5. What hobbies do i have?

Ask your friends and family what they think you're good at and knowledgeable about. You might be surprised at the things they will say about you which you don't know.

Spend a good one hour on this
brainstorming session. At first the ideas will come quickly. But then, after you've already written down the obvious ones, you'll start to
have to really re-think about each one again and again to determine the real one you can work on, this is when the real power of the mind get to work. You see, the subconscious mind is a funny thing. It takes a constant demand from your
conscious mind to get its attention. But once you do, your subconscious will take up the effort for you and begin to supply answers to
your question as it comes up with them. Always spend a full solid thirty minutes focusing on brainstorming topics for your 10 Page Ebook you communicate this demand to your
subconscious mind. For the next few week your subconscious mind will surely provide a good creative topics for you in a sporadic and seemingly
random way. You might be driving to work, taking a shower or eating dinner and suddenly you'll get
a great idea for your 10 page ebook topic. This technique can be used for almost any question or dilemma. Just remember the power is in the results your subconscious mind
produces in the days after doing the exercise.

And that won't happen if you don't focus intensely on brainstorming topics for a full 30 minutes or an hour. It takes this long to be sure your subconscious mind gets your message. I hope that you can use the knowledge gained in this report to create your own profitable idea and start making money from it, i have used it and it did work for me,if you have any question regarding this don't hesitate to email me or use the comment box below. Think Positive.

Reasons Why You Should Be Your Own Boss

Reasons Why You Should Be Your
Own Boss


If you have decided that you want to be your own boss, it doesn’t have to remain a dream forever. In fact, with some proper planning on your part,
you can become your own boss in no time. If you want to be your own boss you need to start your own business. Being self-employed may likely seem overwhelming in the beginning, but in the end many people will feel that the benefits far outweigh the costs. So start
brainstorming some business opportunities! While doing that, here are some serious reasons why you should be your own boss:

1. You will be in Charge of Your own Income. This can be seen as a pro or a con at first, but eventually the sky will be your stepping stone as you develop your business. In the beginning, seeking self-
employment might not make you as much as you used to, and you also may have to worry about issues like individual insurance coverage. The
huge advantage is the fact that you keep every dime that you make and your salary is not capped by your employer. Read How To Develop Money Making Ideas

2. You Have All The Control. You get to make all of your decisions, no one else is telling you what to do. This is huge because many people
run into boredom issues at their jobs. If you can choose the business you want, you can also pick
and choose the types of jobs you accept. You do what you want, when you want.

3. You’re Responsible for Your Success. If you’re self-employed you can truly make a difference when you start your own business. This
is because the success of the business lies on your shoulders. When you work for a large, it’s easy to mix in with the rest of
the employees and feel like it doesn’t even matter whether or not you show up to work. While you’ll
still have to work hard when you are self- employed, you really matter because you are your business.

4. You Set Your Own Hours. Setting your own hours is a huge advantage. You know yourself best and you’ll be able to build a schedule that’s
most efficient for you. If you want to work really hard one day, and take a half day the next day, that’s perfectly fine when you’re self-employed.
You can work all night and sleep all day if that’s your personal preference!

5. You’ll Be Challenged. Most people will find that they not only reach a salary cap when they work for someone else, but they also reach a
point where they’re no longer challenged. When you embark on this new journey for yourself, it will
be a risk and it will be a challenge. Also, as you keep gaining experience and income, you will continue to be challenged as you reach higher
and higher levels.

6. You Can’t Be Sacked. This is a great reason in itself. In the self-employment world you can’t get
fired! You can change your mind about certain business opportunities, but that would just be
shifting the focus of your business, you’d never be firing yourself. This takes a certain amount of
burden off your shoulders because you don’t need to worry about someone suddenly taking away
your income just because of cutbacks even if you’re doing a superb job. Remember that there’s always a certain amount of risk associated with making a major change in your life. It’s never easy when it involves income and the future of your family. However, if you
want to be your own boss, you can certainly be so. It may end up opening many doors to better
your financial future. Watch-Out for my bestseller book "Be Your Own Boss,Now" details about the new book will be out soon. Share this post. Think Positive.

How To Start A Consulting Service Business

Thinking a lucrative service business to start? Think of consulting business! Whether you come to the decision yourself or you’re forced into it by circumstances, starting your own business involves in a lot of complex preparations and a great deal of strategic thought. For many, finding the right business idea or opportunity is the first and biggest challenge. Starting a consulting business, Your professional experience, knowledge and special understanding can constitute a business opportunity with significant potential in its own.
A consultant, to you and me – mean the chance to earn a far better living than being someone else employee, it can enable you to establish a thriving business with real capital value. And the great thing about becoming a consultant is the low entry cost sometimes you don't even need capital to start it which makes the risk much more better. There are three simple steps to understanding what’s involved and deciding whether consultancy is the right start-up opportunity for you.

They are
1. know your product
2. know your market
3. know your skills.

Know your product , First of all, you need to audit your knowledge, skills, experience and expertise How To Generate Hot Topic Your Business. What have you learned in your career that you can sell to others? Do you really have a wealth of knowledge, accumulated over decades working in ever more demanding environments? The simplest way to find out is to access yourself and list all the projects you’ve undertaken over the years: what you did, the outcome, and what you have learned. Then, Summarize this into a set of areas where you can provide useful and powerful insights to others. That is the product you have to offer.

Know yourself .Consultancy requires a wide variety of personal attributes that will make a real difference to your success. These are self-motivation, good inter-personal skills and confidence.
Self-motivation In start-up mode, you must be able to work alone and motivate yourself. Even getting up in the morning will be a challenge if your only incentive is your self-will! For many, for the fact that its your own business getting up for is motivation enough. But working alone demands more than just the skill to self-start. It also requires the ability to be comfortable in your own enterprise and not feel isolated or lonely.

You will also need strong inter-personal skills. Some consultants’ skills are so specialist, and in such demand, that they can get away with behaving like operatic divas. The fact is, clients expect to be treated with respect. They know they are the paymasters, and they like you to acknowledge this fact in your dealings with them, just as they do with their clients. They may ask you to provide them with powerful insights, innovations or other interventions in relation to business help and advice, but they also expect you to do so with sensitivity.

“What have you learned in your career that you can sell to others?”

Saving their face while at the same time telling them they need to change is a skill requiring empathy and finesse. Clients rarely want this delivered via nailing the nail at the head.
Confidence . You will need to balance these inter-personal skills with bucket-loads of self-confidence. Your clients are buying your expertise. If you come over as unsure of the value of your experience, they won’t buy from you. At the same time, you need to contain this self-confidence on the right side of the boundaries of arrogance, otherwise you’ll crash land. .
In the early stages, you may have to fake some of this confidence. After all, if this is the first time you’ve encountered a particular combination of circumstances as a consultant, you’re likely to be a little uncertain of your skills.

Just convince yourself that if you’re unsure, the client is even more unsure. Keep reassuring them (and yourself) it will all be fine, even if you can see how easily it could all fall apart. Chances are, it’ll be fine anyway.

Know your market. It’s one thing having a long list of knowledge areas you’re confident you can provide to others. The real question is, are they valued by the marketplace? Are you offering skills in the next big thing, or the last big flop? To successfully make this assessment you need to understand what’s going on in the world around you. Ideally you want the skills you’re offering to match a growing area of demand, where they will be in short supply and the competitive environment is at least manageable.

But,before start your consulting service business, consider the following points:

Know your product, know your market, know yourself.
Make maximum use of all your personal skills, including marketing and networking.
Get good, professional corporate design. Pay for a well thought-out web site or blog,it makes you professional and serious.
Ensure you get some good PR, even if you do this yourself.
Implemented with enthusiasm, commitment and care, these steps should lead to a successful and rewarding new business opportunity that’s open to most people to get involved in. You can start this baseness with your skills,ideas,knowledge about something even you can turn your mistake and advice people on it,think positive.

How To Find Your Target Market.


I am going to use stadium (Football pitch) to illustrate my point. Have you ever been to any stadium to watch a live football match? At the stadium,there are three kinds of fans or supporters.

1. Home team
2. Visiting or away Team
3. People (Sports lovers).

Within the home team fans we have: Fanatics,Rabid and fair weather fans. The point i am trying to make here is, in that stadium we can, by observation, identify some of those fans. They wear the team colors, they cheer the team up when the team does something good. Now, If we are selling a product related to the home team these people are our (target market) customers. They are most likely to buy our product. Create Groups Each group of customers will be composed of people having common characteristics of some kind. Spend time to study the groups because not every group is your target customer. Study their ages, education, household income,
occupation, their favorite TV shows, children and so on.

What do they want or expect from your business? Where do they buy now? Why? Reduce each group to a basic customer type. What's The competition Up to? are your competitors successful in the marketplace? If so, Why? You must know what works in your market. Keep track of their adverts ,then find out What adverts and promotions do they run over and over? How do these promotions relate to your
customers groups. You need to "steal" market share from your competitors. Sort The Market,
Your primary market should be people you can reach easiest and cheapest with the greatest
expectation of ROI (Return on Investment). Don't waste your time and energy on those who "might" buy from you if conditions are exactly right.

Identify your best market and go after it. Secondary markets can be courted later. Look At Your top Markets ,Take the top markets and do an in depth analysis of each. What are the common characteristics we talked about above? Who do they think is the top business guru in your field? The more you know about each, the easier a plan to reach them will be.

What Methods really Works
"How did you hear about us?", works wonders in finding out what specific message brought the customer in. Studies show if people hear about your business five or more times they perceive you to be a creditable business. Find our what advertising is working for you and build on it.

Test, Test, Test
Any successful marketer will tell you that testing is a necessary evil of business. Make an offer, record the results. Make an offer, compare the results to the first offer. Code in all your adverts. A Code key is something to let you know where the customer saw your advert. Put small code numbers in the corner of newspaper advert. For example code for an ad in today's newspaper might be 355UBC. Which means March 5th, Ucdon Business Concept. Make sure you are using the right channel, Contact a few of your good customers and ask if they saw your ad. If they didn't maybe you're advertising in the wrong place. Make Sure You Can Do What You Can Do . Know How many customers you must see to make a sale? Face to face, on the phone or by e-mail. Another question is, Can you deliver customer service to that number of people? If i sell 30 books in a day on my website that means I have to process 30 orders a day. That's pretty easy. Can be an hour work. If I sell 500 or 5000, then what? Do need more employees to answer the email and process all the orders. Now Are you ready ,is your business good? Choose a Market Carefully. It's not how many markets you can identify and open, it's how many you can profitably market to and service while you make money. Markets are always going to be evolving. With the web, who knows where we're going and how fast and what it will cost. Keep on top of what's happening in your marketplace. Think Positive.

How To Motivate Yourself And Achieve Success.

How To Motivate Yourself And Achieve Success.


Many of us don't even understand what motivation really is, may be based on your own point of view. For this reason,i am going to define it and tell you how it can strengthen your life. Motivation is the inner power that pushes you toward taking action and toward achievements. Motivation is powered by desire and ambition, if these two things are absent, motivation is absent too. Sometimes, you might have the desire to get something done, or to achieve a certain goal, but if the desire and ambition are not strong enough, you lack the push, the initiative, and the willingness to take the necessary action. in these
cases, you lack motivation and inner drive. When there is motivation, there is initiative and direction, courage, energy, and the persistence to follow your goals.

A motivated person takes action and does whatever it needs to achieve his or her goals. Motivation becomes strong, when you have a vision, a clear mental image of what you want to achieve, and also a strong desire to manifest it.
In such a situation, motivation awakens inner strength and power, and pushes you forward,
toward making your vision a reality. Motivation can be applied to every action and goal. There can be motivation to study another local or foreign language, to get good grades at school, write a poem, take a walk every day, make more money, get a better job, buy a new house or be your own boss. Motivation is always present, whenever there is a clear vision, precise knowledge of what you want to do, a strong desire, and faith in your abilities.
Motivation is one of the most important keys to success. When there is lack of motivation, you either get no results, or only mediocre ones, whereas, when there is motivation, you attain greater and better results and achievements in your life.

Compare a student who lacks motivation and who hardly studies, to a student who is highly motivated, and who devotes many hours to his
studies no matter the situation. That is to say each student will get absolutely different grades. Lack of motivation means lack of enthusiasm, zest and ambition, whereas the possession of motivation is a sign of strong desire, energy and enthusiasm, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve what one sets out to do.

A motivated person is a happier person, more energetic, and sees the positive end result in his or her mind. What you need to do to strengthen your motivation?

1. Set a goal. If you have a major goal, it would be a good idea if you split it into several minor goals, each small goal will lead to your major goal. By dividing your goal into several, smaller goals, you will find it easier to motivate yourself, since you will not feel overwhelmed by the size of your goal and the things you have to do. This will also help you feel that the goal is more feasible,
and easier to accomplish.

2. Understand that finishing whatever thing you start is
important. Nail it into your mind that whatever you start you have to finish. Develop the habit of going to the finish line.

3. Socialize with achievers and people with similar interests or goals, since motivation and positive attitude are contagious.
Associate with motivated people, who share your interests. Off course you know what bird of same feathers do?

4. Stamp out procrastination in your life. Procrastination leads to laziness, and laziness leads to lack of motivation.

5. Persistence, patience and not giving up, despite failure and difficulties, keep the flame of motivation burning.

6. Read about the subjects of your interest. This will keep your enthusiasm and ambition alive.
Constantly, affirm to yourself that you can, and will succeed.

7. Look at photos of things you want to get, achieve or do. This will strengthen your desire and make your subconscious mind
work with you

8. Visualize your goals as achieved, adding a feeling of happiness and joy. Remember, if a certain goal is really important, going through the above steps will strengthen
your motivation, and keep you going forward. It is my desire that you succeed only if you think positive. Please share with your friends.

How To Pass Your TOEFL Exam.

How To Pass Your TOEFL Exam.


Each year, According to statistic approximately more than 8 million students take the university English proficiency exam to get into the university, college, or school of their
choice abroad. Certainly, the most widely used English entrance exam is the TOEFL iBT test. Unfortunately, a good percentage of the ESL
students taking the test fail it the first time. This can be devastating for many students who are counting on passing the test before they move to the United States, Canada, or England. Clearly, there are few thing a student can do to help him or her to ensure a better chance at
passing the TOEFL ibT exam. Millions of students want to study abroad but most of them could not achieve their dreams because of TOEFL test, this prompted me to write this article and i have come up with three key strategies that will help to increase your TOEFL score:

1. First you have to understand the TOEFL words. The TOEFL exam isn't meant to trick anyone. The TOEFL exam regularly puts out sample test which contain words that students must master in understanding and usage. The good news is that since the words are provided you are
expected to know them. Study TOEFL word lists and make them a part of you daily in communication with friends and family.

2. Make Friends. This seems like the simplest thing, but many people who take the test may not have access to someone who is a native English speaker. In addition, they might not
have access to friend who speaks at a college level. To do this you have to make friends with native English speakers. This will require you to get out of your comfort zone. Making new friends can be fun and the conversations that you have in
the beginning of your friendships will serve to help you practice your speaking and listening skills. This type of activity is critical because the "give and take" of a conversation is exactly what is one test and which is required to pass the test. Students will have to show the test takers that they are able to listen and clearly
respond to a variety of real life situations. So, get out there and make some friends! Through social media.

3. Read and read more. Read as much English test books as you
can. The reason reading is so important when it comes to English exams is that many of the words in the English language are not phonetically spelled correctly. This simple fact makes it difficult for non-native English speakers to master. For example, the word "drought" or "knowledge" does not acknowledge a few sounds that are represented in the letters the words contain.

Reading will help put an end to
the mystery and help you tremendously come test day.
Remember the TOEFL exam is designed to determine your ability to communicate in English in college and academic setting that will ensure your success at their institution and help you engage in college and campus life.

4. Register for Special English Class. You need to widen your horizon, get more knowledge on communication. Register for evening classes on English and learn all you need to know before going for the TOEFL exam test.

Dealing With Fear

Dealing With Fear

I have talked to some of small business owners who always feel afraid. They're afraid of Failure or being a success.
Missing out on all the life has to offer and not reaching their potential. They're afraid of dying – and afraid of living. No matter how confident a person is, everyone experiences fear. You may know consciously that you're experiencing fear, or your actions might be showing you that subconsciously fear is the
culprit: procrastination, feeling stuck, overwhelmed or out of control. Perhaps you're feeling envious of others, or becoming a perfectionist suffering every time you make a
mistake. The question is what story is Scaring You?

Then acknowledge that you are
creating your fear and you'll start to triumph over it." Most fear is based on a future event, something that's not even happening this moment. We picture this future event and frighten ourselves much like going to a horror movie. We imagine all kinds of outcomes that may or may
not ever take place. One way to figure out how you scare yourself is to listen to your self-talk.

While not take a moment and
Provide the answers to these questions:

* I can't be successful because…

*I can't have what I want in life because…

*I can't be who I'm meant to become because…

*I don't deserve to have what I want because…

Let me tell you the truth about fears, We were not born with these fears. Our past experiences and people in our lives have taught us how to be afraid of the future and about our
ability to meet it successfully. Sometimes we make generalizations about life because of one bad experience.

Practice to change Your mind set. What if you changed the way you talk to yourself? What if you remembered all the times in your life when you were able to accomplish some short set goals, big or small? What if you thought back to all the times you were scared and still took
action? Affirmations are a statement of what you want to be true. But sometimes using affirmations feel false, because the affirmations talk about a future truth. Instead, consider overcoming your limiting beliefs by using what David Gershon and Gail Straub call Growing Edge affirmations, writing and using statements that are true and that still move you towards what you want. Instead of the affirmation, "I am a successful small business
owner making a 6-figure income," use a Growing Edge affirmation, such as, "I am capable of finding people who can teach me what I need to know," or "I try a new marketing technique each month and chart the results." See? These modified affirmations are still positive, still motivational. And once you've mastered that
Growing Edge statement, you can modify it again to keep you moving forward. Just keep the
affirmation truthful AND challenging. Don't write an affirmation that's too easy or too hard…you will sabotage yourself. Write affirmations that are challenging: they make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, ones that feel like you are
reaching and growing, but that also feel completely possible.
challenging but do-able.
Remember…It's okay to feel fear. But don’t let it stop you from moving forward. Tell yourself: I feel scared, but I'm capable of moving one step forward today towards my goals and dreams, because it's more
important for me to be happy and successful than it is for me to allow myself to wallow in my fear and tell myself scary stories.

Helen Keller says, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in
nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure."
We can't know what the outcome of any endeavor will be. But we do know if we allow fear to keep us stuck, the outcome will not be what we want. You deserve to have everything you want in life,
to have a rich, rewarding, meaningful and happy lifetime. You can only achieve success if you change your mind set and think positive all the time.
