When You Don’t Feel Like Working

When You Don’t Feel Like Working

Straight disclosure, the inspiration for this article is one by Ray Higdon, one of those I consider a mentor and go to guy on a number of things. His article was entitled ‘What to do When you Just don’t “Feel Like It.”’

Struggling as I have been from an on the job injury and the reluctance to do the right thing on the part of those responsible I have found myself caught between enduring the constant pain of bone on bone pain combined with burning numbness in other areas or taking the medications needed to ease such sufferings. In either case, I simply do not feel like doing what I need to do.

Please take note, I am using the present tense on purpose and with purpose.

Well, guess what? The universe does not care. Even those who say they do will get tired of hearing about it so you might as well’s to man up and do what you know you need to do, ‘feeling like it’ or not.

Nobody Feels Like It

There is not one super successful person who got that way by only working on the days they ‘feel like it.’

I should not have had to have Ray tell me this, but well, hey, it is what it is and I am grateful for the instruction.

It’s embarrassing, really. There is a lady in the Philippines who went direct on a limited product line, from a wheelchair. I am at least walking. It is an ugly walk and I look like I am crossing a deck in 30+’ seas, but I am walking on my on power still. Cannot lift much and cannot move fast but at least I am still moving on my own power.

…so screw this “I don’t feel like it” crap.

I don’t feel like going somewhere 8 hours on many days in order for someone else to tell me what to do all day, either. But I do it because I REALLY don’t feel like not eating or not paying my bills.

Super Successful People MAKE Themselves Feel Like It

Folks like Ray, Rob and Brian are just like you and me. The blood flows through their veins and when they get tired or upset or aggravated, they, too, feel the blood pounding in their heads.

Ray lost it all in the real estate crash. Rob thought he was going to die and leave his family destitute. Brian was a youngen who, at a young age, got a very clear vision of what it would be like to be someone else’s indentured servant until he is my age, like I was, and said, “No. Thanks ever so much for thinking of me, but…hell, no.”

I Don’t Feel Like It Days

On days you don’t feel like it, those are the days when you double down and scream at the universe, metaphorically or actually, as you like… You scream at the universe that you are going to do it anyways.

The ‘I Don’t Feel Like It Days’ are the days that either condemn you to spend your life with the ones who don’t even try or separate you from the wishers and wannabes and reward you with laurels given to those who ran the race anyways and won.

Below are some links to training I have used, personally use and have profited from.

Earning Income From Home

If you like this post and/or find it helpful, please click on the buttons below to share it. Also, please comment so that I know in what ways I am helping you or what in particular you are looking for. -Tim

So, You Want To Work From Home

The question of how to make an income from home always comes up when folks find themselves in the following situations:

  1. Got fired
  2. Got laid off indefinitely
  3. Downsized (‘rightsized’ there’s a word to piss you off)
  4. Retired and found payments were less than planned
  5. Disabled, holding your breath for Social Security Disability
    divorced

If often comes up with the realization that:

  • You hate your job.
  • Your boss does not respect you; he may never do so.
  • There is no career path; no income increase prospects.

Starting A Business

Deciding you want to work for yourself leads to the need for a business plan.

Questions you need to answer:

  1. What products and services you want to market?
  2. To whom are you going to market? Who is your target market?
  3. Marketing methods you will use.
  4. How to drive traffic to your site.

When you answer these questions, you can then be about the business of filling in the blanks of your business plan.

Shoestring Budget

If you have plenty of room in your budget, then yeehaa. Let’s get started.

That really is not the point of this post. This post is directly aimed at those whose budgets are extremely tight or perhaps even zero.

If you want to get started marketing and building an online business, there are some expenses involved.

If you are choosing a network or MLM opp you probably will have some kind of monthly expense or auto ship.

You will want a blog that you own. If your politics or alignment goes against the grain of your ‘free’ blog’s hosting company they can yank your blog and close your site.1.

There are paid traffic sources. You can stick with the free methods, but paid is something you will want to be comfortable with.

Incidentals: faster Internet, office supplies, etc.

Tools. There are tools, some are a one time fee, others are subscription based.

DON’T DO IT.

That’s right, your uncle Tim is telling you to not borrow money. Go save it, work some extra hours if you can. Point is, if you are having trouble paying your bills and buying groceries I sure to Heaven do NOT want you borrowing money in order to purchase some of the courses and such that I sell.

I am not in the business of hurting people.

I AM in the business of building long term business relationships with folks who want to be free from the need for a job, forever.

Now, the make it real quick here there are two pieces to this puzzle. The products and services you are going to sell and the training provided by them. Then there is the training outside and separate from the what they provide you. There is also affiliate marketing which, while basically free to start, does require some learning while you are earning.

Point is, you have GOT to get some cash flow going, right now.

How do you do that?

Get Paid Today

Get Paid Today, also known as GPT, is a concept that means you understand that 95% of the folks who see your business opportunity are not going to get involved with you, but you STILL have ways and opportunities to make money from them. One way is to sell them training materials and other such things through an affiliate marketer relationship with various companies.

This is all well and good but how do you do that?

See part two of this article coming later today or tomorrow.

By hosting your own blog with an independent hosting company you own your domain and your data. By owning your domain and regularly backing up your data you can minimize the potential for interference or extended down times while you work out a disagreement.

 

Dissidia Final Fantasy ARCADE ANNOUNCED!

Dissidia Final Fantasy ARCADE ANNOUNCED!

There is a new reboot of Dissidia. Details are scheduled to be announced in a press conference on April 10, 2015. That the 2008 combat game for the Playstation Portable was getting an arcade reboot was announced by Square Enix at the just past Japanese Amusement Expo.

Dissidia Final Fantasy was launched in the West in 2009. There is no current news as to whether this latest incarnation will be released in the West yet.

It is using all in-game assets in the trailer, no CG. This is to be a brand new story line, not based on previous ones.

It is said to be for Arcade by some sources and will include a FF14 character. There is a lot of speculation on whether FF15 will be represented as well and how soon, or even if, it will hit consoles or Vita.

While this is seen as a complete surprise, most are glad to see 3 vs 3 combat has been confirmed in the reboot.

The Price of Tea In China

What does this have to do with the price of tea in China? Not much, I am just curious as to whether a technique I read about ranking for keywords in the 10,000 searches range with very low competition will indeed work.

It is, I think, what you would call a Hail Mary, a ‘let’s see what happens,’ an ‘I got ten minutes’ moment so why not?

How To Rank For A Keyword

If you really want to rank for a keyword, though, I suggest you check out two resources. Those two resources are MLSP, or My Lead System Pro Mastery and Predatory SEO.

My Lead System Pro Mastery

Simply put, this is the whole shebang, the entire kit, the best combination of training and tools available. If you are unsure how you want to promote your business or even where your particular talents lie, then MLSP Mastery is the route for you to take.

No, don’t not take my word for it. Check it out for yourself.

Not even a complete list...
Not even a complete list…

Go here for a free instructional video that will give you actionable items to improve your performance now. MLSP Mastery might not be for you but you won’t know unless you check it out here.

What are some of the many benefits?

  1. Instantly makes you VALUABLE
  2. Build YOU, INC
  3. MLSP is NOT a biz opp, and NEVER will be
  4. Does NOT compete with your MLM (it fuels it)
  5. Allows you to Make Money off the 90%+ who will say NO to your opp

Many folks are told, “Just send folks to your capture page and it will explain the business.”

…and they close exactly squat. Nor does your cloned company page get any love whatsoever from Google. Google hates these cloned pages. umpteen thousand pages, all saying the same thing. They get de-indexed and you wind up with no results.

MLSP teaches you how to make you the brand to which people flock for advice and often, advice on which business opportunity to join.

Predatory SEO

Developed by a master of SEO, Predatory SEO gives you what might be considered an unfair advantage in business. Unfair, that is, if all were not fair in love and war, and business is a war. It is a war against your own poverty or entrapment in a situation you want to change.

This SEO course has been developed by a fellow who has built six(6) different businesses all of which have resulted in a six figure income.

How To Get the Most Cash Back

What Is Cash Back?

‘Cash Back’ is the practice of using a small refund off the price as an incentive to get you to use their credit card or portal to make your purchase. Some cards will give you

  1. 1% when you make your purchase
  2. 1% when you pay
  3. 1% when you make the purchase and another 1% when you pay
  4. more than 1% cash back

Which Credit Card Gives The Most Cash Back

The issue of which card rewards you with the most cash back is a moving target, really. What is true this week will not be true next week. Some cards even change the rules of the game every year. Most will not change all their cards in an effort to maximize their profits so I am not going to address this particular issue.

Rather than that I am going to suggest a way to maximize whatever savings you are currently getting with your current card.  The question, “Where can I get the most cash back?” is answerable in my opinion. We will address it here.

Most Cash Back At Walmart

That’s easy. Get the best cash back card you can find (or qualify for) and then go through the best cash back portal site you can find.

WMCB1

That is where Dubli comes in. Yes, if you shop at Wal-Mart though Dubli you wil receive as much as 7% cashback. That is on top of whatever rewards your card is giving you.

Double Digit Cash Back

In January I bought my mom flowers for her birthday. The rewards amounted to 17.7% cash back. Double digit cash back rewards can make the difference in whether your retirement savings do the job.

cashback1

Double digit savings can:

  1. Pay your power bill.
  2. Cover the cost of your auto insurance.
  3. Be used to buy silver eagles and throw them in a drawer for the future.

Remember, all these savings we are talking about in are in addition to the savings your card provides you now. For instance, if I had a card that was paying me 1% when I purchased and 1% when I paid my bill, I would be receiving 19.7% cash back when I bought flowers for my mom.

1%+1%+17.7% = 19.7%

Dubli Cash Back

Dubli has over 6,000 stores. Compare this to eBates’ 1,700 stores. I have looked at a number of programs and Dubli is the top cash back program as far as I am concerned.

If you like sharing your good fortune and would like your friends to benefit, too, you can click here.

For those who would like to join the growing ranks of work at home moms or work at home dads; if you are interested in building an income by promoting the benefits of cash back, go here and watch this short, interesting video right now.

You’re likely missing one of these CRITICAL elements to making LIFE-CHANGING income online. Which one are you missing? 

 

New Network Marketing Potential

I say ‘New Network Marketing Potential’ because that is what you are, a new potential. Potential what, exactly, remains to be seen.

Selecting a New Network Marketing Opportunity

New or experienced, success is yours only if your pick the company whose products and services are the right ones for you to use and to market.

I say use and market because if you are not willing to use a companies products and services you should not market them. I know this may come as a surprise to many but it just seems to me that there needs to be considerations other than just money.

Being the hardcore capitalist I am, that galls me to say, mostly because of the way the Progressive dogs loose in our society will take it. Should I be more diplomatic in my words? I suppose so, but less and less do I care about my diplomacy and more about telling the frank truth.

Lots of companies come and go, streaking across the marketplace like a comet, only to peter out, leaving a trail of unfulfilled promises. Generally, if a company lasts a solid two or three years with never a commission check payment missed it will make it.

Due Diligence In Choosing A Company

You have several resources to check on a company’s reliability. Many will simply bounce around the Internet reading various blogs devoted to one side or the other of the issue of whether a particular company represents a true opportunity.

I would recommend you also take the time to check with the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce in the company’s native city. You may find nothing, but it never hurts to check and you may find some interesting details.

The more pressing issue is to see to what degree the company emphasizes customers equally or to a greater extent than it focuses on adding distributors. If acquiring customers appears to be an afterthought, you need to stay away. It is my opinion that sooner or later its distributors will leave. It is also my opinion that it is a near certainty that regulators will sooner or later shut her down if she does not fail on her own.

Companies In This Field Come and Go

It is incredible, but I have read in more than one place that dozens of new networking companies start up every week or two.

I suggest you turn aside from the false promise of getting in at ‘the top.’ You need a company that has weathered the storm of the birthing pains. If the opportunity was good for the original founders, then it will be as good an opportunity for you. If this were not true to your satisfaction

Making a list of good potentials is one place to start. You can go here and see a review of more than 20 top rated companies.

Spend some time in the forums such as warrior.com and betternetworker.com. There is a small fee for some services, but browsing and hanging out in their forums is time well spent. Just remember that a lot of their members are peddling things, too, and sometimes their comments are not entirely without self-interest.

Take you time here; get your feet wet. Don’t accept the answers you get without a grain of salt. Some of the members spend more time complaining about companies with which they have failed than they spend trying to actually improve their craft. Their posts are lots of bluster, overstated pseudo-facts, and a whole lot of ‘I failed with that company because of blah, blah, blah, or more accurately, “wah, wah, wah” the mean old market would not let me succeed.

Ask questions and think about the answers. Take your time and your mind will let the truth rise to the top.

New to Networking? Keep an Eye out for These Problems

Most networking or MLM companies have a business plan that recognizes that more than 99% will fail in this business. I cannot address why they continue to live with this in this limited space, but there it is. If you plan to succeed, you are going to have to go outside for resources.

You’ll need training. Square up with this concept and chew on it until you understand the truth of it. Going to a weekly rah rah meeting where your upline Diamond or whatever your company calls them spends three hours telling you how spiffy it is to be him is not my idea of training. None of that has anything to do with what you need to do.

You are going to need some actions to take, some daily routines in which to engage and some insight as to how to guage your progress.

Summary

Let’s sum it up. This will be your to do list before you do anything else.

  1. Decide what kind of lead generation system you are going to use
  2. Decide where you are going to do for your education on marketing
  3. Decide which company’s products and services you are going to use and represent

As for lead generation, I am going to suggest you check out MLSP’s Mastery program. It covers all the channels used to market on the Internet today including social media. You can go here and watch several free movies and get a chance to check out the extensive educational resources it offers, resources that have been proven to work.

For me, my education system is one and the same. As you can see from the screen below, the training is quite extensive.

Audience Builder Pro, A Review

Audience Builder Pro Helps You Sell More Stuff

If you want to make more money, all you have to do is sell more stuff. To sell more stuff, get your offer in front of more people. Build a bigger audience and you will make more money. The more you tell, the more you sell. It’s a universal principle; it really does work.

One of the fastest, most powerful ways to build a bigger audience and to get more traffic, leads and sales on complete autopilot is to syndicate your original content to numerous social media sites.

Some social media sites include:

  • YouTube
  •  Facebook
  •  Twitter\
  •  LinkedIn

…and this is by no means an exhaustive list. For some reason I like plurk although I don’t kid myself in comparing it to one of the above. The interface is just crisp, but I am beginning to get off track here. If you check out Plurk, make sure to add me.

Anyways, when you upload a new Youtube promotional video… not only do you have the potential for everyone on Youtube to find it… you have the potential for 800,000,000 people on Facebook to see it and another 250 million on Twitter and 200 million people on LinkedIn… and more, quite a lot more.

If you like doing what if’s in your mind, think on this: If your conversion rate is 1% and you managed to get in front of a significant percentage of Facebook’s members with your content, what do you think that 1% would look like in your checkbook? Pretty nice, I am guessing.

How Does Audience Builder Pro Work?

Audience Builder Pro leverages and promotes all of these social media updates creating 20-25 high authority blog and Web 2.0 links and by creating 20-25 new social media links on a daily basis. ABP is applying standard SEO practices to help cause your social media content to rank higher on the search engines and rank higher within the social media site as well. We then ping all of these new links to make it easy for the search engines to find them and give you a long-term SEO boost.

Now, you can submit one or two feeds every month. We will show you how to set up the feeds if you don’t know how and you can expect the following:

Submit one RSS Feed URL and you get:
• 20-25 authority blog and web 2.0 links daily
• 20-25 authority social media links daily

Submit two RSS Feed URLs and you get:
• 40-50 authority blog and web 2.0 links daily
• 40-50 authority social media links daily

This will in short order get your offer in front of more people.Once this is done, you can put a check mark by the issue of traffic and concentrate on creating quality content and improving your conversion.

I believe in Audience Builder Pro. You should go here and watch this short video and check it out for yourself.

MLSP Review

Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.
Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.

Lots of folks entering into one or the other of the thousands of network marketing business opportunities often see the simplicity of the plan, jump in, retire for the evening, sleeping the sleep of those seeing a bright future. Like when going to bed on Christmas Eve as a child, the world is just a little bit brighter and shinier than usual.

This is a good thing; this is as it should be.

Getting up Saturday morning to work your plan, 99 times out of a hundred it centers around making a list of friends and family. For some few folks this is okay, being centers of influence arranging a meeting and speaking with credibility makes signing up folks just a tad easier and more enjoyable. The question is, are you this person?

Your recruiter told you what to do and you are hard after it.

What he may or may not have told you is the odds of success for any given person is less than 1%.

Let’s talk about what we can do about that.

Magic Bullets

I have been in several opportunities in the past, and they all said the same thing from the marketing plan side.

  • Keep a positive mental attitude!
  • You don’t lose unless you quit!
  • Don’t quit while losing!
  • You have to believe in order to achieve!
  • Six times down, seven times up!

Makes you wonder whether you are starting a business or embarking on cutting a trail through 2000 miles of virgin forest with only hand tools, does it not?

It would go much better with power tools like bulldozers and road graders, don’t you think?

Human Nature

The reason these companies present and market the way they do is basic human nature. The

When I got married, I realized I needed a plan that worked FOR ME.
When I got married, I realized I needed a plan that worked FOR ME.

majority of folks are going to work a while and fall by the wayside. 16% of those who sign up to become a distributor will remain on as customers with the company once they give up on the business side. This is a plan the company can work with.

The reason 16% stay with the company is because most companies give excellent value in the products they sell. Word of mouth is the best advertising and with the persons advertising paying for the right to advertise the products they use, it is a win win win scenario for the company.

…but you are not in the business of making a customer base for the company, are you? No, you are in the business of creating a customer base for yourself, to build a profitable business with which to support yourself, your family, and your hopes and dreams.

Right?

The Four Pillars of a Successful Networking Business

There are four pillars to any successful networker’s business. They are:

  1. Auto ship/subscription continuity income.
  2. Product revenue, things you can sell at one time costs. .
  3. High ticket revenue…at least $1,000 commission for the product.
  4. Business opportunity. Whatever business in which you are now involved goes here.

Auto ship subscriptions range from monthly orders of consumables to ongoing educational resources. Folks buying from you here are customers. They may or may not be distributors.

Many folks will drop a one time fee of $39.95, $297, $395 or whatever on training courses or tools that teach them specific skills. This is a major source of income for those folks talking about reaching high five figure incomes. They spend a great deal of time developing them. The good thing is, once they are developed they can be sold at 100% profit over and over. This is where you will get your product revenue.

You are probably asking yourself how in the world will you find the time and resources to make it to this point while you are kickstarting your business opportunity.

My Lead System Pro

Used to be that folks talked about spreading faery dust on their distributors by extolling their virtues, their energy, their determination to succeed and for these reasons, you should follow them in their business.

None of these things really translate into knowing what to tell you to do next in your business.

My Lead System Pro fills in the gaps of what you know.

Let’s look at the four pillars under My Lead System Pro helping you build your current business.

Four profit centers:

  1. Auto ship/subscription continuity income. Again, these are your customers buying products from you on a monthly basis.
  2. Product revenue, 100% Mastery, courses, trainings, etc.
    (MLSP bread and butter stuff) substituting for your own products.
    You don’t have these now, right? MLSP supplies you with them. You are in business.
  3. High ticket revenue…at least $1,000 commission for the product. MLSP has several that you can use to build You, Inc. MLSP teaches you how to build your brand.
  4. Business opportunity. (MLSP is a generic solution, helping everyone build whatever business they are in.)

Here is a free training video on MLSP. If you want help with building your business, you need to go here and watch how MLSP is the pain reliever for your pain. Any frustration you have had up to now is not your fault. No one has taught you how to succeed.

MLSP is teaching you how to make progress and profits, now.

Lead Generation Process

Leads Are The Name of the Game

Leads are the name of the game for building any kind of business offline and online; having a good lead generation process is crucial to the eventual success of your business. Even your local supermarket spends effort, time and money generating leads. Those sale papers are not afterthought.

Not all leads are equal and not all lead generation processes are equal, or even effective. A sub-standard lead can cost a lot more than it seems at first impression. Time is a limited, one way investment that you will spend no matter what.

Bad leads are a bad investment.

Lead Generation Means ‘QUALIFIED’ Leads

If leads have not been qualified in the promotional process you are wasting your time. You will spend your time working with folks who are uninterested and most likely cannot remember why you are contacting them.

Lead Generation Requires Work; It Requires Correct Work

Offline it requires you setting up meetings and driving to those folks, calling them, and often wondering why in the heck did they commit to a meeting if they did not want to come.

They may delay you by saying, “Can you send me some information on it?” or that golden oldie I always love, “I will think about it.”

You can but they probably won’t.

If you are in a hurry, you probably don’t have time to do the marketing process many companies engage in such as collecting information from prospects at trade shows, sending them information, pre-qualifying them and so on.

You need a method of generating leads who are looking for what you are offering, for whom you have a solution to their problem, an end to their pain.

Step Back and Understand the Lead Process

If what you are doing is not working, come to grips with the idea that you don’t understand the process. Understand that this is a critical issue that must be resolved in order to move forward.

Online generation is deceptively simple looking. Mainly, because you are struggling to be seen and heard in a web of pages dominated by Google and folks who understand SEO, SAO and how to get backlinks.

Purchasing Leads

Yes, you can do that, but doesn’t it make more sense to be presenting information and help in such a way that they seek you out for free? When you create content and put it up on a blog it works for you from then on. If you are buying clicks, once those clicks are done, you are done and they are gone. Hopefully, they will buy but if they do not, then you have accomplished nothing.

Obviously, this is the downside. I am not entirely against buying clicks I just know many people who are trying to get started do not have the budget to buy traffic. Once you do get started, buying focused, targeted traffic is a great way to accelerate your business. Doing it when you have to choose one bill to pay over another to get started is maybe not such a good idea. The cool thing is there are ways to get a blog hosted pretty much for free or less than a $10 spot a month and get going now.

A Lead Generation Process That Works

You need a lead generation process that provides you a what to do, when to do it, what to sell, and to whom to sell it kind of set up. Do you have any up front training that is free for your prospective customer or distributor to go so they can get a feel for you and what you offer? Do you have a mechanism whereby you can make money on 90% of the folks who say ‘no’ to your network marketing business?A system that is always updated so as to keep up with changing times and effective strategies?

You do now. Go here now and check out the training we use here at Earthtiger Networking.
