Ultimate Guide to Building a Massive Home Based Business In Less Time Using Social Media, Personal Branding and Internet Marketing

You sign up with a new company and you’re completely pumped. Your upline is showing all kinds of interest in you. You have a ton of ideas on how you’re going to make it to the top of the ladder. You’re literally oozing inspiration and motivation. Seriously, you rival the Hulk right now. You take notes at all the meetings, you’re putting in the work and doing everything that your upline is telling you to do. You might even be working closely with the area manager. A month into the business, you’re scratching your head. You’re tired because in addition to working your job, you’re putting in several hours at night updating your Facebook account, putting together orders and preparing your NEXT big idea to get more customers and business partners. You’re concerned about your family, because if their eyes roll back any further they’re going to pop out; they’re …

What They Don’t Tell You About Personal Branding

Personal Branding seems to be the new buzz word in internet marketing. With good reason – do it right; do it well and that shit works. So called gurus talk about the reasons it’s so important and how to claim your piece of the promise land. But what about the things they don’t talk about? I have friends that would run screaming if I ever told them they had to put their mug front and center of their business and website.  I’ve watched people get it wrong from day 1.  I work with network marketers who struggle to understand “personal” in the realm of what they’re programmed to do in MLM.  I’ve also seen businesses go soft on their clients because they don’t want to lose the income by telling them to scrap it and start again. You can google how to build a personal brand, but most of what …

This 1 Move Will Increase Your Success And Profit

BUT ALL THE GOOD IDEAS ARE TAKEN! That’s what I hear most often when people come to me wanting to start a business, but don’t know where to start.  Let’s nip this in the bud:  you don’t have to create something brand spanking new to be successful.  You just need something .. better. Before we dig into the how-to, let’s talk about the WHY. People have an adverse reaction to building a business that is targeted to a smaller audience. They think that they’ll have a better chance of success if they start with a massive audience They think that they’ll be trampled by the big guys when they realize what they’re doing They think that they’ll miss someone who is in desperate need of their information or product The reality is that when you specialize or find a specific niche, you’re chances of success increase and so does your …

How To REALLY Succeed in Network Marketing

I want to tell you about the #1 mistake that Direct Sellers and Network Marketers are making in their business – and it’s costing them a ton of their time and thousands (if not more!) in unearned income. A few weeks ago, I met a friend to go over her new MLM business because she really wanted to hit this thing out of the ballpark and she wanted it to happen now.  We discussed a few things that I tell everyone I meet with:  you need a website, you need a mailing list, you need a Facebook Page, not a group, and here’s the quickest way to get all of them up and running. Then we dug into the #1 mistake that I see so many of these business people making.  Her intention was to create a page and business around the company she was involved with.  Big mistake. When …

Testimonials when you’re a brand new company

This question came in from Natalie who was about to launch a brand new business. Check it out: Hi Dawn! I loved your guest post on Mogul Mom today! Thanks so much for getting these tips out to everyone. I’m reaching out to you today to find out if you have content posted anywhere about how to get around having testimonials when you are just starting out. My business is getting prepared to launch in the next few weeks. While my partner and I have extensive experience in our field we are creating a new service for the dental community and are concerned about how to build a reputation for being trustworthy without having any clients to brag on us yet. I’d love to know your thoughts on this. Luckily for Natalie (and you), I do happen to have a few ideas to building your online rep when you haven’t …

How To Become A Virtual Assistant

So you’ve decided to become a Virtual Assistant, huh? You’re definitely in the right place.  This post is one part how to, one part inspiration, and one part that I affectionately call “slap-you-in-your-face-wake-up-call”.   I’m not going to sugar coat things and give you some big rah-rah push about how this is THE thing for everyone.  It’s not.  Just like not everyone is cut out to be a work-at-home kinda person.   And it’s long.  So go grab yourself a cup of tea.  Or coffee.  Or vodka.  I’ll wait. You already know my story, so we’ll skip that (but if you haven’t read it yet, go check it out now. Yes, really.  Go!)  and head straight into what the hell this business is all about and how you can snag yourself a fancy title too.   If you Google “become a virtual assistant”, you’re going to come up with a ton of …

It’s not your fault – working from home is challenging

So, you want to work from home.  Maybe you want to be available for your kids, or maybe you are tired of the 9-5 rat race.  I’ve been working from home for the past 7 years and let me tell you, it can be HARD. I’ve had to deal with people who think my “little business” is some type of a scam. I didn’t have a good support system at home – at times he sabotaged it. My son was only a few months old when I first started working from home. Like I said, hard.   CHALLENGES: Working from home can be a godsend, but there are a few challenges that people don’t always talk about. Isolation The best part about working from home is also the worst part .. you’re working from home. Alone. Working a regular job affords you the luxury of talking shop with people who …
