Years ago, whilst studying to be a designer I was asked what
I wanted to be. I thought this was a strange question. Surely, as I was
studying Industrial Design, I wanted to be a designer!
After much frustration and gesturing, I finally understood
the question and so here I am asking you, “What do you want to be?”
But to save you the trouble of working out what it all
means, I’ll explain it here.
Firstly, there are three types of innovation:
Sensual- concerning the senses, including how a product
looks, sounds, feels or even tastes and smells.
Functional – How the user interacts with the product. This
might include how easy it is to install or operate, or it might do something
for the user that was not previously possible.
Technological – We are more familiar with this as it relates
to the technology behind the product. If it is truly innovative then you will
be able to protect it with a patent.
Every manufacturer will have their own strengths, and every
brand will have their own associations. For example, Pepsi Cola is marketed on
it’s flavour. It is very strong in the sensual arena. To have the most
credibility in the market, Pepsi would be best to keep all future products in
the same sensual area. Moving over to a functional product such as a bio
yoghurt would be a very difficult and risky move, even if it is a growth

If you haven’t noticed everything today can be down online. People do
everything online including: shopping, research, applying for jobs, car and
home advertising, communicating, working, etc. Even something as simple as
buying movie tickets or setting up a tee time to play golf is done online. When
are you going to make the transition?
With the internet growing by the day there is more opportunity for people
to make money online. I know a lot of people have at least thought about
working online but they’re afraid due to their lack of computer and internet
knowledge. To be honest most people that get involved with online business
don’t know a thing, but there are a number of businesses that will teach you
everything that you need to know and they’ll guide you along the pathway to
If you’re really serious about leveraging the internet and making money
from home then start looking for a company. Find a company that has a great
reputation for helping people create success. You’ll need a company that will
teach you how to market your business and brand yourself on the web. Also, I
would suggest finding a company that provides you with a mentor that is
achieving the level of success that you desire. One of the easiest ways to find
success is by mimicking the actions of a successful mentor.
It’s time you make the transition to the internet and start making some
money. The internet has grown immensely …
are floundering and not moving forward due to the fact they’re so focused on
what’s presently happening in their current company. Perhaps they’re worried
about their present economic scenario or their lack of anticipated growth or
any number of other things. As any company owner knows, there is a myriad of
points that 1 can concentrate on that happen to be of a worrying nature.
When 1 understands
that no matter how technically savy an individual is or how quite a few
personal improvement courses a single requires, should you do not fully grasp
the laws of your universe, you will be at a disadvantage in your small
business. It may never ever possess the growth or financial abundance that you
The law of attraction
will be the most effective law in the universe and to know it totally one
particular should know about emotion. Every little thing that comes to us, very
good or terrible is usually a outcome of our thoughts and emotional response to
things. What we focus on with terrific emotion is what exactly is coming to us.
So, if we are worried about our company or concerned about items, the universe
responds in kind by giving us far more items to be concerned and concern
importance of focusing on one’s VISION. The universe doesn’t know the distinction
among reality or our imagination. It often responds to what our focus is. So we

Social media is
quickly becoming the medium of choice for getting the word out that you are in
business. Advertising has changed over the last two decades. Sure the big
advertising giants are still around but with the advent of social media
marketing a product has become a horse of a different color. The generation
X’ers and the ones to follow are spending more time on the web than in front of
televisions. They are twittering and Facebooking and playing online games. In
order to get their attention you have to be visible where they are.
Social media marketing
is the answer to this online business dilemma. Facebook offers a unique opportunity
to find an almost limitless supply of new prospects to pitch your MLM to. The
first step is to for you to become a trusted “brand” yourself. Here
are a few tips to help you get the ball rolling.
1. Compile a list of
network marketing companies. You will want a list of over 500 hundred. They
already have business what you will do is help them build their business and
help yourself start your own. Add to this list others that are actively seeking
business opportunities. Look for face book groups with titles that are about
business or working from home.
2. Join as many of
these groups as possible. That is to say make a list of these groups and
systematically join as many as 5 a day. Go slowly and deliberately space out
Several years ago, my
wife and I were working insane hours in the retail industry. We had two
children which we barely saw while our nanny looked after them and practically
raised them. My wife heard an ad on the radio for a work from home business and
decided to check it out. After speaking with her business coach, she talked it
over with me and she started into this new venture. I was not for it myself as
I wrote a paper on MLM style businesses in college (which I got a very high
mark on) and my findings were, given the times and state of the economy, that
these businesses would not last and that most only were after your money. Let’s
just say that time changes things, as it didn’t take long before both of us
were working from home as this business replaced both of our incomes.
I am sure you have
heard all this before, right. Well here is where things are different. Within
the first year in business, my mother in law passed away. As an only child my
wife was a mess, and as I was not yet out of my job, I figured the business
would fall apart and we would lose everything she built up. Was I ever wrong!
Our coach stepped in and took over her business for the most part and kept it
running while she was not able to. Something that I never figured would happen
