Keep Your Eyes Peeled For New Ideas

First there were bank drive-thrus. Then, there were fast food drive-thrus. Do you think this happened by accident? Clearly there was some idea borrowing at play here. Originally microwaves were built for restaurants, but soon they made their way into each and every home. The computer was devised for the Central Intelligence Agency and government networking. Now the everyday American citizen couldn’t imagine living without this technology. Many of the best ideas are already out there: we just have to reinvent them for our own businesses. You can expand your income tremendously by applying existing ideas to your industry. If you want to get rich, you’ve got to stop making excuses and start using your imagination. Don’t say “Well, it works for him and not for me because his business is bigger, his market is better, etc.” Every opportunity doesn’t have to be insanely obvious, you know. There are winning strategies that cross all industries if you know where to find them. Consider Estee Lauder’s “gift with appointment” marketing strategy that is employed by dentist offices and high-end resorts around the world to this day. Everyone likes to get a token of appreciation for investing their time with a business. Everyone […]

Why Most Fitness Trainers Are Broke

Why Most Fitness Trainers Are Broke

In fact, some personal trainers earn a pathetic $8,000 to $15,000 a year. Yet, on the other hand, there are also fitness trainers who are bringing in an average of $42,000 or $65,000 a year. The fact of the matter is: You can make whatever you want in this industry.     If you’ve only completed a high school education and you’re not willing to get a higher degree, you’re going to make less money, plain and simple. If you only want to work part-time because you have other priorities in life, then you’re going to be broke and find your actual opportunities for enjoying your free time are somewhat limited. True satisfaction in life is fleeting if you are not focused on your career and, at the same time, fulfilled by it. Likewise, there are personal trainers who have the education and the credentials, who work their butts off, but they still fail miserably and have nothing to show for their efforts. These are the trainers who are hung up on STUFF. They need to have 500 pairs of workout attire. They have to drive the fancy Jaguar. These people want to live large and show off their wealth. […]

Is Your Small Business Set Up To Fail?

Is Your Small Business Set Up To Fail?

One oft-quoted statistic says that 85 percent of small businesses fail. What a depressing thought! That doesn’t stop us passionate entrepreneurs from testing out the waters and attempting to defy all odds, of course, but in the back of every new small business owner’s mind is this awful number. Here are a few signs you’re on the fast track to failure – and what you can do to steer yourself back on course before it’s too late. First, consider that the average TV spot is 30 seconds. During the Super Bowl when emotions are running high, it’s only 15 seconds. Yet, half the people watching TV can’t be bothered to watch commercials at all and simply fast-forward them on their DVRs. These are the people you’re trusting to care about what you have to say? You’ve got about 200 to 500 words to say your peace online. If you have Tweets, videos, bullet points and lists, you’re definitely on the right track. If you’re not selling yourself, your ideas, your campaigns, your products and your customer service at all time, you cannot possibly succeed. Some business owners feel they have such a great product that the product will sell itself. […]
