10 Keys That Every Home Based Business Owner Should Implement For Success
Tyrone Lomman

1) Attitude--

One very important factor in running a business is your attitude towards it. You should treat your business like a business.

This is very important whether you work your business full-time, or part-time. A very close friend of mine, who is also a colleague, is a mother of 4 who works her home business around her family. In this case, she has put her family first, and at the same time, still been able to develop her business.She works part-time, but she has a full-time attitude.

Mind Your Self-Talk
Irena Whitfield

While your Inner Critic acts as a pre-recorded tape of pessimism, Self-Talk is the internal dialogue that brings positive results.

Along with your Inner Critic, Self-Talk is a constant, running dialogue in your conscious and unconscious mind that can be self-limiting unless you become aware of it and use it to empower you. Negative Self-Talk can come from inside of you or from the outside world and the given circumstances. We are the results of how we see ourselves, how we communicate with ourselves, and how we have been programmed. Be aware of who and what is programming your brain. Surround yourself with people who validate your beliefs and encourage your ideas, so that they can help you reach your positive outcomes. If we allow others to make our decisions for us, we become voluntary slaves. ... Read more

Believe You Can and You Will!
Mike Brescia

What could I and should I be absolutely certain about?, isn't that a great question. I talk a lot about momentum and belief in yourself getting on a positive roll. Because if you believe that you can do something, you often miraculously get some other world ability to do it even if you've never done it before. And if you fall down in your attempt, if you believe that the slip up was nothing more than a delay instead of a denial, then you'll get back up and keep going. Sometimes, if the flame grows bright enough, even the very casual observer can notice a change in someone that switches from lack of belief to out and out passion for success. ... Read more

10 Things You Should Be Monitoring On Your Website
David Leonhardt

Every business needs to know how it is doing. That's the idea behind exit surveys, customer feedback forms, suggestion boxes and other devices. Without feedback from the customer, monitoring inventory, expenses, revenue and other benchmarks, a business can take a quick slide down a slippery slope, without the owner ever seeing it coming – or being able to stop the slide.

Dr Kevin Nunley

Everywhere you look on the Net, experts are warning you that things have changed. It may have been OK last year to throw up a simple web site supplying readers with some basic info about your company, but that's not nearly enough for today's World Wide Web.

I know quite a lot of people who consider to-do lists, goal-setting and similar activities a waste of time. It's no wonder that usually it is people who don't achieve much.

Grow With Goals
Brandon Iurato

Our road to success begins with a fundamental question: Where are we going? Funny thing is, most of us don't really know. Thinking back to where I began, I am reminded of a popular saying: "most people don't plan to fail, they fail to plan". I became a wandering generality and I wasn't even sure how that happened until many years later.

Having a purpose, or knowing your "why" is the starting point of all achievement. ... Read more
