MLM Home Base Business Archives

With all the MLM success stories around us (and yes, most of them are true), it’s all too easy to assume that everyone going into network marketing is assured a lifetime of financial transformation. But is that really the case? Well, from personal experience, I can say that the truth lies somewhere in between.

For sure MLM can make one rich. And it is one of the most popular business options for individuals who desire to earn extra income from home. It is also one of a few businesses that one can start with minimum financial investment and grow it to unbelievable levels within a relatively short time. The opportunity itself is real. And most of the ‘incredible’ success stories you hear and read about are indeed true.

But some myths need to be cleared. One of them is that this brand of business can be run on auto-pilot. Another one like it is that in network marketing, you only need to put in minimum effort and soon you’ll see the dollars roll in. Nothing can be farther from the truth! Unfortunately many people believe this lie and come into MLM with that mindset. It is no wonder statistics show that over 95% of all who venture into network marketing fail in the business or quit within six months.

If you won’t add to those numbers, then let’s show you the only route that leads to MLM success: daily efforts. Yes, the efforts you put in on daily basis are what will determine how you’ll fare in network marketing over time. Seldom do people start a new business, sit around, do very little or nothing, and expect the business to thrive.

Put differently, rarely does anyone plant a tree on thirsty soil, water it only once and expect the tree to flourish. No, the huge corporations we have around us were not built that way. And even if you’re not setting out to build a conglomerate, serious efforts are still required of you.

What this means is that once you’ve made up your mind to own a home business, you’re going to devote time and other resources to nurture the business until it takes off. And even after it has taken off, you’ll still have to keep doing what you are doing, depending on the level of success you desire. But you must make determined efforts to begin with.

In network marketing for example, nothing meaningful can be achieved by a distributor who does not talk to people on a regular basis. Of course there are various ways this can be done—through emails, newsletters, social networks, phone calls, drop cards, seminars, physical contacts, etc.

The list is almost endless. And you the marketer or distributor can choose the combination that suits your personality the most. But one thing is certain: you must promote your business opportunity in some ways on a regular business.

That way, you’ll be able to sell the products, and above all get some who’ll join as downlines. Products and downlines bring in money in the form of various commissions. But only downlines guarantee the future growth and expansion of your MLM business. The more people you’re able to recruit, the faster and bigger your business will grow. That’s why you need to make efforts each day to bring in more people into your team.

Your daily efforts must also include knowledge acquisition. You must stay up to date with happenings in your business segment. This will equip you with the latest methods of promoting the business as well as valuable information to address the needs of your downlines and prospects.

We can go on and on, but the bottom line is that if you want to see your MLM business grow at a deeper level, you must make some efforts everyday.

TO YOUR MASSIVE MLM

SUCCESS!

Many people believe they cannot build a successful Network Marketing or Direct Selling Business due to the present state of the economy. But when you take a look at the performance of most network marketing and direct sales companies, you may see a reason to challenge that mindset.

The truth really is that Network Marketing also called “Direct Selling ” is one of the few recession-proof businesses out there. In reality, network marketing and the economy are not fair-weather friends.

Even in a good economy there always people who are looking for ways to better themselves financially or create more time freedom for themselves and their families. For most of these persons, network marketing has often provided the opportunity.

So this business thrives under all economic conditions. But if anything, network marketing performs even better during economic downturns.

The reason is that when the national economy is in bad shape, people are typically laid off from jobs. For those who do keep their jobs, incomes usually stagnate or are reduced. Needless to say that job opportunities inevitably become very slim.

What all this mean is that individuals are going to look for ways to make ends meet. And network marketing is usually one of the first options. And for good reasons.

One reason this business thrives even in bad economy is that people who are laid off from jobs and those who could not get one would typically want to get into a business of their own in an industry that takes small financial investment as compared with traditional business start ups or franchises.

And since a network marketing business can be run from home without a huge amount of capital, what it means is that an ordinary person can get started in their own business with relatively little money. In addition you can work your own hours, from home.

Again, most persons who wouldn’t pay attention to a network marketer when the economy is good may find themselves giving serious thoughts to MLM proposals in bad economy.

So prospecting becomes easier for a network marketer under a bad economy. That is indeed one reason MLM typically trumps all other business during recession.

In network marketing, many different types of products are sold, meaning you can always find your niche as a marketer. In these days there so many network marketing and direct sales companies to choose from. In recent years, some of the most successful ones are found in the liquid nutritional supplement sector.

This is understandable considering that people are now more interested in health and wellness than ever before. As a result, health and wellness products have become a big part of the MLM industry.

Since the companies themselves offer different compensation and growth paths, you have the option to choose the one whose compensation plan suits you the most.

So yes, network marketing companies are thriving worldwide and making people rich with generous compensations and commissions. Most persons have begun to realize their life dreams as a result of their involvement with network marketing. In turn, their success stories inspire others to give serious thoughts to this type of business.

But is success in this business automatic? That is another matter entirely. But let’s quickly say here that like everything else, success in Network Marketing Requires Knowledge And Dedication. But the rewards are well worth it.

A real Network Marketing team is a group of people working together for a common goal, whereby each individual member brings forth their skills or talents in a coordinated manner which enhances and ensures the attainment of a set goal.

The members might not have chosen themselves, but having become a part of the team, each has no choice than to contribute their all toward the attainment of the common objective.

Whether in the family or in the workplace, the importance of teamwork can never be overemphasized. It’s long been proven that even the most talented person achieves more when working as part of a team.

And for the average performer, their performance or output often increases several folds when their efforts are integrated into that of a team. It is not for nothing that the word T.E.A.M. has been interpreted to mean Together Everyone Achieves More.

But to get the most from a team, they must necessarily work together. Unselfishness and clarity of purpose is the backbone of a successful team. The moment the team fails to work as a cohesive unit, or if the real objective is not clear to all team members, then you may end up having a mere collection of individuals whose personal skills and contributions do not add up.

If you are a part of a team or have responsibility to coordinate the activities of a team, here are things to watch out for in order to get the best from your team:

1. Are all members of the team agreed on the common goal towards which everybody is striving?

2. Does each team member know exactly what their role should be?

3. Do members consider themselves as a team or as individuals? It ought to be the former.

4. Therefore, listening to each member speak, do their statements contain more of “we” or “I”? Again, it should contain more of the former.

5. Is there mutual respect among the players on the one hand, and between players and the coaching staff on the other?

6. Do team members encourage and support one another?

7. Are members more interested in individual glory than the collective success of the team? The former should be discouraged.

8. Notwithstanding the common goal, are individual efforts, sacrifices, and contributions of each player recognized—no matter how little?

9. Do members discuss group performance, and are they committed to continuous improvement?

Teamwork is extremely important and should be accorded high priority by team leaders as well as the team players themselves. The most important task for the MLM team leader is to assemble a team that shares common goals and a common vision. There should also be a culture of mutual recognition, whereby the contribution of all is applauded by all.

Team members should be helped to realize that everyone is accountable to the team. They should also know that great accomplishments are only possible when each player complements the efforts of other players.

Similarly, each player needs to know that their success as individuals is tied to the success of the entire team. The importance of dedication and unselfishness should also be emphasized.

Perhaps the greatest benefits of working as a team are that it helps us to learn how to share risks and to work for the general good of all. Teamwork also enhances job satisfaction and helps us to see the bigger picture. That is in addition to the increased output that good teamwork brings.

The dust is yet to settle on a recent Dr. Benny Morris seminar organized by the man popularly known as “Dr. Encouragement.” The man behind the name, Dr. Benny Morris is a celebrated name in public speaking and business training.

He’s been training and teaching people success principles for over 20 years. His online training and coaching sessions are among the most popular in the internet community. It is no wonder that when news filtered in that he was organizing a seminar at Tampa, Florida, quite a number of business owners re-arranged their schedules to be there in person.

Employing stories, analogies, and objective lessons, Dr. Morris helped his audience to break many of the barriers that have been holding them back from reaching their full potentials. He harped on the need to stay focused and to watch your set of beliefs.

Personally, I can’t agree more with Dr. Morris on nearly all of the lessons he taught the audience. Talking about beliefs, the thing about them is that most times, we do not consciously decide what we believe—“I’m just not cut out to be a high achiever,” “I don’t have what it takes,” “this is as far as I can go” ”I will never understand this” “I just can’t change who I am.” Who told you that? Another thing about beliefs is that once adopted, we often forget their real interpretation.

And that often leads to wrong application of these handed-down beliefs. Unfortunately, unless there’s a sound basis for the set of beliefs you cling to, they may well be sabotaging your efforts much more than you realize. In other words, you may well be operating your life or your business with a manual designed for someone else.

What it all means, as Dr. Morris pointed out, is that we should occasionally challenge some of the beliefs we hold. That way we’ll be able to break through our self-limiting beliefs.

The inability to stay focused is another frequent cause of business failures. A lot of people, especially new entrepreneurs are so easily distracted by the promise of another “great opportunity,” or they easily get discouraged when initial expectations are taking too long to materialize.

Either case, they stop implementing their business plans and start looking for another easier opportunity. Unfortunately there’s none out there. The next opportunity, like the present one, will still require you to stay focused and work your plan.

Of course many people complain that they were not born or blessed with the ability to focus. I find it hard to understand what that means. What I know is that everyone is born with an emotion called fear.

In itself, fear is not bad—at least it protects us from dangers or unnecessary risks. But given free reign, fear can also prevent a person from taking the actions that are necessary for success.

And when people easily give up give on opportunities, unknown to them, they are driven by the fear of failure: they fear that if they continue on that line, they’ll fail. Ironically, it is the inability to stay focused that ultimately results is failure!

Dr. Morris drove home the point that if anyone wants to be successful, the person must get focused and take the actions needed to achieve success. Quoting Tony Robbins, Dr. Morris said “if you can’t, you must.” Enough said, Doctor!

I can only suggest that if Dr. Morris happens to organize another seminar near your area, you’ll be doing yourself a lot of good if you attend. Lots of life and business lessons await you.

Why You Should Set Goals And Work On Them Daily

That those who Set Goals often achieve higher than those who just drift along is not in doubt. What is amazing is how often people deviate from the goals they set, or abandon it entirely. The major cause is that many people set faulty goals to begin with.

There are both right and wrong ways to set goal, as well as motivating and discouraging attitudes towards set goals. In the end, these two factors will determine if and to what extent a person will achieve their goals. Since success in every aspect of life is accelerated when we set and pursue our goals, it behooves everyone to learn the right way to set goals.

First, let’s talk about goal-setting techniques. This requires that you first take stock of your various responsibilities—either as a parent, husband, wife, employee, entrepreneur/businessman, etc. These are your roles as an individual, and they will always have an impact on everything else you do.

Any goal you set for yourself that doesn’t take these responsibilities into consideration will be extremely difficult to achieve. Take, for instance, a family head and sole breadwinner who sets out to achieve the same savings target as a fellow employee on same salary scale, but one who is a single mother or whose spouse works. Isn’t such a goal faulty from the onset?

Besides your responsibilities or roles in life, the next thing you need to consider in setting goals is what things are most important to you as a person. These are your values. List them out in order of importance.

Next, decide very clearly your overall objective in life. Write this out in one unambiguous sentence. In the corporate world, it is known as the mission statement. Remember that your objective must be closely related to your values.

Indeed, your values should guide your overall objective—your goal. And as I stated earlier, this objective—whether long-term or short-term—should take your various responsibilities into consideration before it could be considered realistic and actionable.

The wisdom of setting goals in this way is that your goals in effect become a proper extension of your core values, the things that matter most to you. They’ll reflect your beliefs, your talents, responsibilities, and chosen mission. The process of actualizing them becomes a lot easier.

That brings us to the issue of attitude towards goals. It is said in some quarters that a goal should primarily focus on the result rather than on the process. I disagree. Both are important.

If the process is tortuous and uninspiring, there is every chance that such a goal will be abandoned mid-way. Indeed, people become impatient when they focus too much on the outcome rather than the process that leads to the outcome. A goal will be easier to attain if the path is consistent with a person’s values and realities.

It is also useful and more inspiring to focus on what effect a goal will have on your life (or the lives of those you love) when it is achieved. As you focus on how your goal will improve lives, you’ll be motivated to take continuous action to achieve it. That is only natural.

When you develop this mindset, the time it will take to achieve some of your goals will no longer matter. You’ll even see yourself embarking on huge missions, even some that may not be achievable in your lifetime. Yes, not all goals are achievable within a person’s lifetime!

But really, does it matter as far it is achievable? Just think: what would’ve been the fate of the African American in America today if Martin Luther King and other civil rights activists had not fought for goals that are only being realized long after they’re gone? That’s the point. As far as your goals inspire you and they’re achievable, the process will not matter as much as the end result.

Personal or Individual Success? You Can Achieve Both!

Are Personal and Business Success mutually exclusive, an “either or” relationship? I don’t think so. But a lot of people do, and as a result, many sacrifice one in pursuit of the other.

You need not look far to see proof of this. Just take a look at some of the biggest names in the world of sports, or showbiz, or even the corporate world they know the power of focus.

There you’ll find “superstars” or high achievers whose personal lives make you wonder if you’re not luckier with your lower profile life. Most have terrible family lives, spouses and children who curse the day the person attained stardom status.

And for the individuals themselves, the high suicide rates and mental breakdown is all the proof we need that not all success is success. Yes indeed, some of what many regard as success is actually failure by another name!

But business and personal success are wholly achievable. You only need to approach the matter in ways that are capable of getting you the outcome you crave. For one thing, you’ll have to define from the onset what success means to you—both personal and individual success.

I’m saying this because lots of folks out there define success in terms of attaining heights comparable to what someone else has attained. To them, a person is only successful if they equal or break someone else’s record. Right? Wrong!

Success ought to be idiosyncratic, a very personal thing. Success should mean achieving one’s goals which were set bearing in mind one’s desires, values, goals, potentials and peculiar circumstances. No, this is not self-limiting. It rather helps a person to know where to draw the line in the pursuit of success and happiness.

It doesn’t matter whether it is business or personal success, the moment you define what it is you want to achieve—your goals— and tailor them to your individual abilities, you are half way to achieving them. Also, you are more likely to experience satisfaction rather than emptiness at the attainment of these objectives.

Of course, goal attainment calls for its own set of rules, which include being disciplined, being a good manager of time, being passionate about your mission, having a never-say-die attitude, as well as constantly learning and updating your knowledge in your chosen line of business.

You should also not underestimate the impact that good mentors can have on your efforts. In either personal or business goal, it pays to learn from those who are ahead of you. Find out what it is that’s helping them succeed where others have failed.

For example, if you’re a relatively young couple who’re having serious issues with your marriage, wouldn’t it be wise to confide in a couple who’s weathered the storm for a few decades?

Similarly, if you’re having a hard time keeping your home business going—or maybe you’re right now seriously considering quitting—wouldn’t it be the course of wisdom to have a heart-to –heart with someone who’s been through a similar experience and has now succeeded?

Ultimately, you alone can and should decide what success means to you. But in no way does that preclude the need to learn a thing or two from others. But be sure to evaluate what you learn; tailor it to your individual aspirations. Only then will you attain the sort of Personal and Business Success that brings satisfaction.

Starting a business is like building a high-rise structure. The final building will only be as strong as its foundations. Yes, adjustments could be effected later, but often at huge costs.

Most times, really, a faulty foundation often means that a structure will fail on its own or will need to be brought down. Do you imagine that you can build an enduring enterprise without first giving serious thoughts to vital questions?

It could mean the difference between giving your business a solid foundation or a shaky one. Before starting a home business, you should be able to answer the 5 questions below in a positive manner—at least most of them. If you’re not sure what your answers to these questions are, that may be proof that the business idea you’re nursing may not work.

HERE THEY ARE:

What Do I Know About This Business? It’s hard to succeed doing something we do not fully understand. Yes, there’s room for learning the things we do not know. But that should be done before, not after jumping into the fray.

Bottom line is that you should educate yourself the best you can about the business you want to go into—how it is done, and what it entails. This will help you decide if you have what it takes to succeed in that type of business, or if you have the resources to acquire the aspects of the business that you do not currently have.

Am I Passionate About This Business? Do not go into any business simply because you heard people are making money with it. There’s no free money anywhere. Every business will require you to stay through the thick and thin before you can see results. If you do not really like the business, you are unlikely to push on if the money is not swift in coming.

Do I Have The Time For This Kind Of Business? All businesses will require your time, some more than others. Very likely you are holding down a full-time job.

Do not be deceived: A home business takes up far more time than a regular 40-hour per week job. I know because I’m into both. So, are you already strapped for time?

Then beware, home business will only makes things worse. You should take into consideration the demands of your daytime job, your family that needs you, your physical limitations, etc. After that, you can then decide if this is something you want to do.

Do You Have The Materials To Start This Business? Go through your inventory and decide if you have all that are necessary to start this type of business, or at least the most basic items.

Remember that if you don’t have them, you’ll get stuck at some point or you’ll have to buy them. So, you should also ask yourself if you have the money to buy the ones you do not have.

Are The Products Likely To Sell? This sounds pretty obvious. But it is one question most persons don’t ever ask before starting a home business. However, it is crucial to first find out if there’s need for the product or service you want to provide.

Starting a home business can be very exciting. But very few persons still find it exciting six months or a year later. Most had not considered the 5 points listed above before jumping into home business.

Jim Rohn: An Objective Review

Jim Rohn was my mentor for many years through his works. A lot has been written and said about the man Jim Rohn during his lifetime, but most especially since his demise.

Expectedly most of what has been said had portrayed him in good light. But a few had dwelt on negativity.

So I decided to look more closely into the life and times of this celebrated businessman and motivational speaker to see if there’s more than meets the eye in either direction. Here are my findings.

Jim Rohn had become a household name in business training and motivational speaking long before his death. With over 6000 direct audiences and nearly 4 million followers worldwide, his popularity has hardly come as a surprise. And if you add the over 25 different works he had authored, you’ll begin to see why the name rings a bell.

Background checks revealed that the man himself was born around the middle of the last century to an Idaho farming family. He had a rather quite childhood and a checkered early adulthood. He wasn’t even really educated—dropping out of college in the first year.

At about 25 years of age, it was looking like he would live and die on a low profile note. But just then, he met the legendary John E. Shaoff, a very successful businessman and philosopher of sorts. Mr. Shaoff’s accomplishments, philosophy in life and sheer charisma soon began to rub of on Jim Rohn.

After joining John Shaoff’s direct sales business, Jim Rohn’s path to greatness got fast tracked. At age 31 he was already a millionaire. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Or, is it really history? Not when numerous successful salespeople and other business owners around us owe their own success stories to some of the life lessons taught by Jim Rohn. It is well known that he was very instrumental in launching the careers of sales and public speaking celebrities like Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and Les Brown.

In my opinion, his greatest contribution to the human race remains his philosophies for success—especially his emphasis on mental and physical discipline. He repeatedly taught, and rightly too, that both success and failures don’t happen by chance, and they do not happen overnight.

To Jim Rohn, success is a result of small steps (or as he calls it, small disciplines) conducted everyday for a sufficient period of time. Failure on other hand is the end result of not doing enough for a long time or doing too little for too long. Doesn’t your personal observation support that?

Here is my summary of Jim Rohn’s guiding philosophy: There is danger in looking at one undisciplined day and concluding that no great harm has been done. For, when you add up those days to make a year, and add up those years to make a lifetime, it will become obvious that repeating today’s small failures will easily turn a person’s life into a major disaster!

I allow this reasoning to guide the way I approach everything I do. I try not to take anything for granted and I do not underestimate the impact that seemingly little steps can have over time.

Jim Rohn sure means different things to different persons. But to me, his high work ethics, strong sense of discipline and observable commitment to groom others for success are traits every mentor and follower needs to cultivate. HAVE THE BEST YEAR EVER!

How To Make Money With Blogs – Blog Samuria Secrets

How To Make Money With Blogs? I am going to try to boil this down to the essentials. There are a lot of books written on this subject, so I am not going to try to cover everything here. If you are looking for a good book about blogging for beginners, I suggest reading Darren Rowse’s Problogger. But for a quick, bottom-line version keep reading…

What is a Blog?
A blog is short for “weblog”. Basically, it is just a website that has entries listed in reverse chronological order. The original idea behind it was to be a online journal or diary that was updated daily (or as frequently as the writer chose).

Over the last decade many software programs and blogging platforms have been created to make the process VERY EASY. As the blog writer, depending on which platform you use, you can just type your entry, press submit and it shows up on your blog for the world to see.

Most bloggers don’t know any programming languages and are not “techies.” Starting a blog is one of the easiest ways out there to start a website. If you haven’t started one yet, why not try it? It can be very quick to set up and can be completely free.

Is it easy to start a Blog?

It is very easy. Even if there are steps along the way that are confusing, there are plenty of resources to get the help you need. There are over 20 million blogs in existence, so it can’t be that difficult.

How much does it cost to Blog?

There are many services that allow you to start a blog for free (see below). I suggest using one of the free services to get a basic feel for blogging and “get your feet wet.” Once you decide you want to stick with it and that you want to make money with your blog, I suggest moving up to a self-hosted blog (see below).

Anyone who is really trying to make money with a blog will probably be more successful with a self-hosted blog. Getting a self-hosted blog may not be free, but still can be VERY inexpensive. You will need to pay for nothing more than a domain name ($10) and web-hosting (as cheap as a few bucks a month).

Getting a Blogging platform

All 4 of the options listed are free. The first 3 options are the easiest, but they are also limited on features. If you are just trying to make an extra few hundred dollars from your blog, these options could work. But if you are really serious about trying to make good money from your blog, I recommend self-hosting your blog (which we talk about in the next section…).

Tumblr.com – This is probably the simplest blogging platform to use, but it also is the probably the least customizeable. So, it might be something good to start with, but it would be more difficult to build an income-generating website with it.

Blogger.com – Blogger is also very good, easy to set up, owned by Google, you can customize the theme, and the domain name includes “.blogspot.com” (in some people’s opinion a little less professional). Blogger continues to become more customizeable and currently has a lot more options than they did a few years ago.

WordPress.com – I like wordpress.com they are completely free, easy to set up, you can customize the theme, but other customizations are limited, domain name includes “.wordpress.com”.

WordPress.org – Wait, what is the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org? To put it simply WordPress.com is where you will go to set up a basic, easy blog with limited features. WordPress.org is where you will go to get a self-hosted blog. If you get to the point where you are serious about blogging and really want to make some money with it, you need to self-host your blog.

How to setup a self-hosted blog

If you are serious about blogging and are looking for the best way to customize your blog’s look and other features, then getting a self-hosted blog from WordPress.org is probably the best way to go. It is currently the top choice for most bloggers.

It does require more work up front and does have small costs associated with it: buying a domain name ($10/year) and hosting your blog about ($10/month).

One of the big advantages is that you can use your own domain name (i.e. yourblog.com). While this might not seem like a big deal, it is a lot easier for people to remember yourblog.com rather than yourblog.blogspot.com which is what you will be given if you use Blogger. I will warn you, being a non-techie like myself, this took me some time figuring out how to get my self-hosted site set up.

WordPress.org has a great step-by-step guide for getting you set up. While it is more work on the front end, I am really glad I got good advice and did this at the beginning, than having to do it now.

Pick a Domain Name

1. You should start by purchasing a domain name. Psychicwhois.com is a great tool to see what names are still available. I would suggest going to for a .com rather than a .info or .us or anything else for that matter. It is just too easy for people to get confused. A .com is always going to hold more value than any other extension.

2. Once you get it picked out, you need to find somewhere to purchase it. I buy my Domain Names at GoDaddy.com But there are other places to purchase Domain names. Go Daddy is about one of the biggest names out there.

Pick a host for your Blog

The webhost is the company that you pay to store all of your files for your blog. There are also a million web hosting companies out there. I don’t suggest just looking for the cheapest one, because a lot of these companies are not very reliable and your site might be down quite a bit.

I like to go with the bigger companies who have a longer track record and are more established. They may cost a dollar or two more a month when you are starting out and it is well worth it.

I have hosted my websites with HOST GATOR from the beginning, mostly because I knew a lot of people using them and I got a hosting package for under $10.00 a month. I have found them to be a very good host. With Great Customer Service.

Warnings for those starting

out…

Don’t Quit Your Day-Job

Even if you know a lot about making money with a blog (which just be reading this Blog post, you have a tremendous advantage over me when I started) it is going to take a while. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme, it is more of a work-for-free-for-a-long-time-and-then-reap-your-reward type plan.

The beautiful thing is that I can now say that it does work if you are diligent and open to learning from your mistakes. But either way, convention wisdom says, build your blog part-time and when you start making more from it than your day-job then consider making it a full-time deal.

Robert Kiyosaki in his book called “The Cashflow Quadrant” says, that the schools system is training your kids to become good employees – they’re not designed to groom innovators, problem-solvers, or future entrepreneurs.

So if you want your kids to be in a position go beyond the paycheck mentality, you’re going to need to teach them something the schools rarely mention to them—entrepreneurship. Simply put, your goal is to raise kids who understand money, business, and wealth creation.

In today’s rapidly-changing world economy, a long-term, secure employment has gone the way of ancient civilizations. And that’s to say nothing about the combined effects of inflation and taxation on earnings when you do get the job. It is really sad that school systems and most parents all over the world are still training people for an environment that no longer exists.

As a parent, you surely don’t want to raise kids who are going to have to wait to be given a job. The only way to have financial security in our modern world is to equip oneself with the knowledge and skills that enables one to continually create opportunities of one’s own.

So the task before all parents really is to teach their kids to think like entrepreneurs, to be on the lookout for opportunities. And opportunities do abound.

For a start, as a parent, impress it on your kids that the world is full of opportunities and abundance. Do not for a moment leave them with the general notion that everything—especially money—is scarce and must be competed for.

Let them know that competition arises only if a person chooses to go with the crowd, i.e. searching for jobs. Teach them entrepreneurship instead. How can you do this?

First, let your children know that with determination and proper planning, they can achieve whatever they desire to achieve in life. Never stop to point out that how well they do in life depends largely on their own efforts – they should assume full responsibility for their success in life, rather than surrendering this responsibility to governments or corporations.

Tell them not to count on a job keeping them secure, but to be constantly developing their abilities in ways that make them creative, problem-solvers. Success in any endeavor is really about identifying an opportunity or need and then filling that need.

The scale of the need often determines the size of your success. And entrepreneurs often create needs where none previously existed. That’s why entrepreneurs are often very creative people.

Also, teach your children the habit of putting some money aside each time they are given some money—savings. Since you cover most of their needs, have them save no less than 50% of any money they come by.

This savings can eventually help with their college education or help them start a business in their late teens. The important thing at this point is to teach them the power of saving and investing.

Occasionally take them to local entrepreneurs in your community, especially one run by a youthful owner. This could be local restaurants, Community Supported Agricultural farms, local shops, etc.

Explain how the mister or miss was able to build the business that your family is now patronizing. Such settings often inspire young minds more than stories about the early beginning of General Motors.

Above all else, teach your children to keep their eye out for opportunities. That’s what entrepreneurs do. They are able to spot opportunities from miles away, and take it. Further, always encourage them (your kids) when they do things that show creativity and individual initiative. These are all traits of entrepreneurship.

The present world is full of people who are looking up to governments and corporations to fill their needs. Raise your kids to become a solution to this problem, not an addition to it: teach them to become entrepreneurs.
