Join professional musician Earl and professional artist Hannah in a conversation based on their up coming book "Business Hippies Guide to Survival in the Modern World"... Planning the Success of your Business of Passion.
All businesses and people must plan for their success. It really doesnt matter what type of business you own or what your personal goals in life may be, you will not likely get there with out a plan. This is going to be a informationally jam packed half hour where we will discuss how to start planning successes rather than overting challenges. Those of us who own a business of passion where we are our brands are most in need of having a strong plan. We can not stumble into success with out it. It really doesnt matter how great your art is, how cool your songs are, how great you do nails or cut hair or make cup cakes if the world recieving your service is not part of your active plan. How do we reach our audiences? How do we become visible to our markets? How do we determine what market we should be projecting to? How much of our profit do we reinvest? How much does social media help? Should I pay some one to help?
There are so many questions when we start planning our success. Join us and learn how we are working daily to ensure the health of our businesses and our futures and learn some of our missteps too! This discussion is not just for those of you who are business owners, there is a lot of practical advise for everyday living in this segment as well. Plan your success, plan your life! So join in, call in or chat in!
Join professional musican Earl and professional artist Hannah in a frank discussion on having businesses of passion, navigating our successes and our failures.
What is a business of passion? A buisness of passion typically refers to a business that is creative based. This thought could include artists of all kinds. Painters, Musicians, Photographers, Writers, Professional Bloggers, Beauticians, Coaches,Chefs, Healers and so on. But it also includes everyone who is an entrepreneur in our opinion. Passion is a vital ingrediant to being successful in any business. So is a plan of success.
We call ourselves "business hippies" which actually started as a joke in our home. Truth be told the term "hippie" was not one that either of us really thought of as defining or even desirable. But! Once we learned the value of aligning our internal core values with our work choices we ended up in a space where we were almost forced to rebuild our businesses to reflect what was important to us, which were very simple living, rooted values. Sooo the term "business hippie" became a title that we now love to hold!
Tune in and share with us your thoughts on having businesses of passion, discuss how you are planning your success to include corevalues such as love, joy, family time and so on. Hear some stories about our journey to alignment with our core values which brought us a ton of success and challanges and share with us how your journey is coming along.
First person to call in or chat in will win a prize this week!
Is social media killing your BOP? Small business and medium businesses have grown to rely on social media to help them brand, "connect" and sell thier services. Some businesses pay to "boost" thier posts for a seemingly larger reach, increase thier fan bases and elevate the awareness of thier BOP. Most believe that though the stats are promising, they are not effective. Many businesses are awaking to a space of confusion, dissapointment and discouragement over things like lack of reach, connection and interactions with thier brands. Many people have seen a sharp decline in the amount of people who see thier posts. Many people have put so much time into social media that they are killing thier businesses. Social media is an illusion. Yes....it is "social" Yes, people (about 6%) will see your posts but even General Motors with 50,000 fans has realized that there is no more money and time to be wasted in trying to build the brand with face book.
We Business Hippies have awoken from this illusion as well. We are leaving face book in 2015 and we already have cut it down to no more than 20 minutes a day for our whole social media portfolio. We realized that we were killing our business through our reliance on facebook to carry our networking weight. The truth is, no one in your news feed really cares, they are not going to buy your products enough to sustain your business, They are likely to not even see your posts. "They" are not the problem. We are. So tonight we will chat about this honestly. Where we went wrong, how we have damaged our business and what we are going to do to thrive in this ADD nation. Join in the conversation!

The 'C' word makes your life work. It is not something we say, but rather, it is something we think and do. Courage, confidence, committment are all examples of a 'C' word that we must repeat over and over. We must also act in accordance with out confidence and courage. Of all the human virtures, courage is the the most important. Without it, all the other virtures fail.
None of us are born with confidence or courage. We are all born insecure and needing others to sustain us. But that time passes. We eventually become being that are able to sustain ourselves. And from here our confidence and courage to act will determine our destiny.
As a parent or grandparent, knowing that confidence and courage are learned behaviors, we must do everythiing in our power to continually enhance and grow our own confidence and to help others achieve thiers.

http://iResults.info/9367/networkmarketing Want to know the most crucial time in a recruitment process? The first week pretty much determines how the rest of the course and indeed,partnership works out. But really it's the first 72 hours that are mostcrucial in a consultant business. The sad news is majority of the people who join a direct selling business actually "check" out mentally within the first three days, so all the training you do after that falls on deaf ears.This is terrible news for anyone hoping to light up the world with their little marketing team, but of course it's not the end of the story. If you'rea leader, or working on becoming one, then the first three days ofsigning a new member can have a significant effect on how that person performs in the business. It's a time where you want them to get off to a great start and stick it out when it gets complicated. Here are a few tips to help get them ready to sell more and exceed their own
