***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.

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

Mike
