Starting Point Weekly
—————————————————————-

***Greetings and welcome to another newsletter.

I am making some changes to the newsletter that you, my all important readers have requested.

You have been saying you want it shorter and easier to read, so no problem that`s what I have done now the main getting started video training modules are finished.

For a bit of interest I am leaving in most of the headings and it`s up to you whether or not you read them but give them a try they are usually only a few lines long and often offer good tips such as the one below for example in thought for the day.

It should only take about 5-10 minutes maximum to read from beginning to end and rest assured there will be something new to learn every week to help you with your business and a few freebies thrown in along the way whenever I can.

Look out for the heading THIS WEEK at the end of each newsletter because that`s where I will put this weeks main article so you can skip straight to it if you are ever pushed for time.

This week I am giving you part one of a free course on outsourcing at the end of the newsletter, take a look and give yourself more spare time to enjoy life.

Thought For Today
—————————————————————-

How much are you worth?

I don’t mean how much are the component parts of you worth – the water and minerals that make up your body (a bit less than a dollar for the raw materials, a bit more if you could sell your working parts).

I mean how much does it say on the invisible price tag that you have hung around your neck.

$10 an hour? $100? $1000?

You are worth exactly as much as you believe you are worth.

My friend David is a joiner. He makes stuff out of wood. Recently he was asked to price up a job that he really didn’t want. Rather than turn it down, he simply double his normal rates in the hope that the customer would be put off.

The next day they were on the phone asking him how soon he could start.

THAT made David rethink how much he was worth!

Another friend (also called David, coincidentally) is a central heating installer. He told me that he normally quoted £800 to fit a new boiler, but recently has been losing jobs to other companies who charge much more.

When he started asking why he’d lost the job, the customers told him that they figured the more expensive companies would do a better job.

Dave immediately added £1000 to his standard price and has been booked solid with work ever since.

Mike is a management consultant. He recently decided to increase his hourly rate from £200 to £800. He is still billing exactly the same number of hours but his income has quadrupled – and he reports that his clients are now FAR more likely to do as he recommends.

It happens all around us. People everywhere are undervaluing their worth because they put their own value on themselves instead of the value that their clients and customers would put on them.

Take a look at the value that YOU put on yourself.

Look harder.

Now, whatever that value is, increase it. Live with it. Let that new value sink in to your subconscious.

Then go out into the world and show them what you’re worth.

Dale Carnegie said,

“The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don’t like their rules, whose
would you use?”

This Week’s Quick Tip
—————————————————————-

In an age where dress codes are becoming more relaxed, be very careful that you don’t cross the line from ‘casual’ to ‘insulting’. In the ebb and flow of business relationships, respect is very important to maintain.

The best, and most subtle way of demonstrating respect for your boss, your client and yourself, is to always take care about your appearance.

Discover the Secret to getting more than 24 hours from each day.

Are you tired of trying to do everything yourself in your business?
You are creating your own products, setting up your own websites, trying to get web traffic, and managing your own affiliate program. Pfshew! No wonder you’re going crazy.

Successful business owners, do NOT do everything themselves. Find out how you can begin to outsource parts of your business — where to find people and how to be able to afford their help.

Your Most Common Outsourcing Questions Answered
Grow Your Business with Less of a Workload

In Today’s Lesson…

What is Outsourcing Anyway?
____________________________________________
Hello and welcome to the Outsourcing Explained Course.

Over the next few issues my goal is to help you create a more profitable and less stressful business. Sounds good doesn’t it?
So, what are we waiting for?

Let’s get started. We both know that the best place to start is at the beginning, of course. Today we’re going to find out exactly what outsourcing is.

Outsourcing is the act of contracting out business tasks to someone else for completion. Outsourcing is a way for business owners, like you, to:
• Get more done in your business.
• Save time and money.
• And more…

There’s a common misconception about outsourcing that needs to be cleared up while we’re on the subject. Many think that outsourcing involves sending work to people in other countries who work for pennies and perform the work below standard.

That’s not what we’re talking about here. There are ways to outsource work to those who are professionals in their respective fields and will work to give you above par results – wherever they live.

There are a variety of tasks that you can outsource in your online business and we’re going to discuss those later in the course, but for now start thinking about everything you do in your business. Do you handle it all yourself?

If so, you’re working yourself way too hard. Or as Rich Schefren says “You’re working for a lunatic”.

Stop spinning your wheels and stop living for your business. If you’re feeling overworked and underpaid, then you need to sit down with your boss (yourself) and give yourself a good talking to.

Believe it or not, those who do every single thing in their business are actually stalling their business from growth. It’s time to create a lucrative business without working yourself so hard.

Stick around and I’ll show you how.

Next week, we’ll cover… “The Benefits of Outsourcing”

So until next week, take care.

To Your Continued Success

What do you want from your life?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Today I thought I would get you thinking about what it is you want from life. What part of your life would you like to improve, think about it for a moment.

What part of your life isn’t going the way you had hoped and what are you prepared to do about it. You see it’s no use going through life moaning about things if you are not prepared to take action yourself to change things.

Nothing is set in stone, with a little effort you can change anything in your life, you just need to ready for the challenge ahead.

Take a piece of paper now and write down the biggest thing in your life you want to change right now, be it more money, better job, house, car, to become self employed, work from home, you decide. Once you have decided you then need to plan how to get there.

Let’s say for instance you want extra income and in these trying times who doesn’t, you need to think about how you are going to get it. Can you get a better job or promotion or work longer hours.

Is your partner working, if so can they work more hours or get a job if they are not working already. Failing that can you reduce your monthly out goings even slightly to give you more spare cash.

You see there are more ways than you think of getting more money. Have you ever thought of selling your unwanted items on ebay or even buying from a wholesaler to resell on ebay for a profit.

Before you dismiss the idea, think about why you can’t do this. There are millions of people making a full and part time living on ebay. It doesn’t involve giving up your day job, at least until you are making enough to quit, if that is your aim.

You can start with just a few dollars worth of stock and perhaps make just a little money for a special treat and once you see it can be done build on that.

Alternatively, just sell your unwanted items and use the money to start your own internet marketing business, I will be helping you with that in the next few weeks and months.

You need very little money to get started, and again you don’t have to quit your day job until you are ready. Put it this way, only you can change your life, I will say that again, only you can change your life.

I can help you, but I can’t do it for you. If you take no action, how can anything in your life ever change, unless of course you win the lottery, and good luck with that one.

To help you out if you think you are ready to make that change then this may be for you. I am including a free step by step guide to making your first sale online with internet marketing.

Why not download it and see what you think. If however you think you would like to start to sell on ebay to get you at least started doing something, then look around your house, loft and garage, and you will be amazed at some of the things you have lying around that you no longer need.

Then gather them up, photograph them and put them on ebay, you have nothing to lose and it may be the start of a whole new life.

Which ever of the two paths you choose you are at least making forward progress towards your ultimate goals. Keep watching out for my emails over the coming weeks as we begin the life changing journey together.

To your continued success

Are You Living Your Life To The Full?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

As you know Apple’s founder Steve Jobs has passed away last year. Steve was an amazing man, he built up several well known successful busineses and was worth billions and will be sadly missed.

He’s been a great inspiration and I just re-watched his Stanford Commencement Address a few times. If you’ve never seen it before, watch it below.

This video has had over 14.5 million views and I can thoroughly recommend it to get you motivated because you never know when your time will be up.

While it is indeed a great loss to the world, and so young, I know for a fact that Steve Jobs has led an amazing life and thus I’m sure he will have little regrets…

On the other hand, it’s time for all of us to reflect if we’re truly LIVING our life and making a difference each day…

Here’s my favorite quote from his speech:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Steve Jobs

Hence, I encourage you to strive for your dreams and push forward regardless of how bleak the situation might seem. And don’t just be overly obsessed about making money,Focus on picking up skills that are lifelong and evergreen. Because knowledge can never be taken away from you and it will aid you regardless of what you’re doing…

Use the information on this site and make a commitment to yourself to get started today, you never know what`s round the corner. Unless you at least try, how do you know what`s possible. You are in control of your life, nobody else.

Take a moment to think about your life and start changing it for the better today, before it`s too late.

To your continued success

Mike

Are you ready to take action today?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I make no excuse for getting on to you again about this. Unless you take action now to change your life you will always be a wage slave.

As a wage slave, unless you can get more hours or a better job your earnings are pretty much static. You need to break out of your comfort zone and try something new.

The cost of setting up your own internet marketing business is very small, less than $50, so what’s stopping you? Is it the fear of failure, because if you do fail so what, just learn from the experience and move on.

If you never try you will never know, and go through life living from pay check to pay check like most other people. With internet marketing you are not restricted by what you can earn in say 40 hours per week.

You can just create a product or use an affiliate one and get sales over and over again, your only limitation is how many people buy from you, but this happens 24 hours a day. There is no need to stop at just one product, once you get up and running you just set up more and more offers.

Here are some sad regrets that were taken from real patients that were terminally ill about things they wish they had done while they could..

Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. She recorded their dying epiphanies in a blog called Inspiration and Chai, which gathered so much attention that she put her observations into a book called The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.

Ware writes of the phenomenal clarity of vision that people gain at the end of their lives, and how we might learn from their wisdom. “When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently,” she says, “common themes surfaced again and again.”

Here are the top five regrets of the dying, as witnessed by Ware:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

“This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled.

Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.”

2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.

“This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners.

All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.”

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

“Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.”

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

“Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years.

There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.”

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

“This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives.

Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”

What’s your greatest regret so far and what will you set out to achieve or change before you die?

What are you waiting for, do it now before it’s too late.

Sorry if this upsets you but you need to take stock of your life now because life is too short and you never know when your time is up. Take care until next time and take action.

To your continued success

Mike

When Is The Right Time To Get Started

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The simple answer to that my friend is now!

The thing that stops most people getting started is the excuse that they are not ready, they just need to learn a bit more, or to decide on a niche, or polish or tweak the project they are working on at present.

Another one is the time is not right, due to the recession nobody has any money to spend. Well, let me tell you all these are just subconscious excuses not to get started, let’s look at them one by one.

1) There will always be a reason why you are not ready and the time isn`t right, so when will it be, the simple answer is never, so just do it.

2) You need to learn a bit more, well, let me tell you that you will never know everything and you will be constantly learning new things in this ever changing market so just get on with it.

3) You need to decide on a niche. No problem just follow my training and pick one, job done. Don`t agonise over it, if you get it wrong all you have lost is a little time and you will learn valuable lessons to help you get it right next time.

4) I am working on a project that just needs tweaking. My first question to you is how long have you been tweaking it? If you are not careful you will use that as an excuse and never finish it. Just get it something like and get it out there, your customers will be the best judge of if it needs any more tweaking and do it as necessary.

5) Finally nobody has any spare cash due to the present economic climate. This is total rubbish; the current climate actually works in your favour.

As earning are squeezed and people lose their jobs, they are looking to find other ways of saving money by doing things themselves that they might have paid someone else to do previously.

Or alternatively they are looking for ways to start their own business to earn some extra full or time money. Again this is where you come in with your products to give them what they want.

Do you see all of these are excuses created by your subconscious mind to keep you within your comfort zone. Your subconscious mind, (and this is scientifically proven) is only happy in a state of flux, and is only interested in things staying the same.

As soon as you even think about moving out of your comfort zone to try something new, alarms go off in your head and chemicals are released to create fear and doubt so you will give up and return to your comfort zone so everyone can be happy again.

This is a fact, so it is not really your fault if you give up, but what you must do is fight it or nothing will ever change in your life. This is just what your subconscious wants, but it shouldn`t be what you want.

If you are not happy with your life then make a decision today to overcome your doubts and fears and get started. As you have already said there is no better time than now.

Someone once asked me have they missed the boat with internet marketing, and my reply was the boat hasn`t even left the harbour yet.

Internet marketing will be around as long as people are hungry for information. I know you can search out a lot of it yourself for free, but us humans are a lazy lot and people will always be willing to pay for someone else to do the searching and bring all the information together.

They want it all in one easy downloadable ebook or cd or dvd and that is where you and I come in and clean up. Stick with me and I will help you get started as easily and as cheaply as possible.
