Is It Time for You to Stop Dabbling and Get Serious?

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

If you want to start on a serious career path, don’t even think about giving up during the first year. Very little happens during the first year in terms of results. Most businesses aren’t even profitable in their first 2 years; it takes them that long just to become sustainable, even for fairly small businesses. […]

Exercise Your Freedom Fully

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Many people become self-employed to have more freedom and flexibility. Not as many take full advantage of those benefits though. It’s common for people to find themselves self-employed in ways that make them slaves to their desks. They may have removed their old boss, but they ride themselves just as hard as their old boss […]

Branding is Fear-Based B.S.

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Branding, brand management, and brand strategy are rooted in fear and are completely unnecessary. This is true whether we’re talking about business, product, organizational, or personal branding. The primary aim of branding is control. But people don’t generally like to be controlled. So branding is largely done at the subconscious level; if it were done […]

How to Stop Being Disappointed

Friday, July 6th, 2012

If someone is late about 70% of the time, and you expect them to be on time, that’s a rather foolish prediction, isn’t it? They may be on time, but they probably won’t be. What many people will do is get angry with the friend who’s frequently late. Does this usually change that person’s behavior? Perhaps […]

Investing

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Another way to earn passive income is through investing. I’ve already mentioned real estate investing, but of course you can also generate income from many other types of investments such as owning stock in a company or earning interest with a certificate of deposit. Investments can pay off with interest, dividends, and capital gains. Depending […]

Passive Income Systems

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

To generate passive income, you need a way to maintain your income without having to do so much grunt work to keep it going. If you have to keep working each day to avoid seeing your income drop, then you’re earning active income, not passive income. Passive income continues to flow even when you aren’t […]

How to Make Money From Your Art

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Is it possible to enjoy a financially abundant living as an artist (the word artist being used in the most general sense)? Or is this simply an unrealistic dream? Of course it’s possible. Many people have done it before. But is it realistic for you? Well… that depends. The honest answer is: probably not. What it […]

Entrepreneurship Begins With Demand

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Many people who are new to entrepreneurship approach the world of business in some rather funky ways. Quite often they come up with solutions first — or at least what they think is a solution. Then they try to convince people to buy, hoping that those people will somehow see the value in their solutions. […]

Creating a Business Plan

Monday, October 10th, 2011

It’s true that you don’t need to create a formal business plan in order to start a business. You can kickstart a business very quickly without having to plan out every detail in advance. That said, there can be tremendous value in planning. Thinking through a business in advance is hard work and requires deep […]
