Identity Theft Protection

You may think you know everything there is to know about identity theft. I thought I did.

I've been a victim twice. The first time the credit card company caught it and saved me from any expense. The second time the crook got my ATM info. It cost me several hundred dollars.

I recently read an ebook on Identity Theft Prevention that is worth the read. It's only $7 and contains 70 pages of valuable information. Click on the picture to learn more.

Your Child Knows How To Have Home Business Success

So many people involved in a home based business feel that they have to be extremely smart or mature in their business before the real success will come. In this article I plan to show you how building your business like a child can help you see more results faster and grow your income in a huge way.

How could thinking like a child possibly help your business? Here are a few reasons why you should act your shoe size… not your age.

Children only have one goal in mind at any given moment. For instance if you’ve ever seen a little boy or girl in the toy aisle at Wal-Mart or Target they’re usually begging their mom or dad for a toy. In that moment, in the mind of a child, that toy is the most important thing on planet earth!

You can try and distract them but they want what they want and they’re not going to stop putting up a fight for it.

As a home based business owner you can learn a lot from this. If we as adults had one eighth the passion for success that that small child has for their toy we’d be hearing a lot more success stories in our home based businesses.

Children don’t have a plan B, and we shouldn’t either. Almost all Network Marketing success stories come from people who were at a point in their lives when they literally had no other option but success.

In that moment in that toy aisle you’ll never see a child say. “Well I really want that new doll but I do have several other dolls at home I could play with so I’ll just forget about it.”

So for instance if your goal is to make $100,000 a year working from home you shouldn’t sell yourself short by saying… “Well I guess $60,000 is really all I need.”

Set a goal and allow yourself no other options but reaching that goal.

Another way that children are great examples is how they deal with people. Children have no fear. If a little boy walks up to another little boy in the sandbox and asks him to play with him he’s not thinking: “Oh gosh I don’t know if I should ask him to play, I mean he’s having a pretty good time in the sandbox… I don’t want to bother him.”


If a kid wants to play with another kid he just walks up and asks him. No fear, no beating around the bush. If he wants to play… great! If not at least he knows.

Have an idea of what I’m getting at? You have to talk to people about your home based business without any fear. After all the worst they can say is no right?

Stop worrying about if you’re “bothering” people or trying to figure out exactly what they’re going to say. Who cares! You have something great in your hands and if they want it… awesome. If they don’t so what.

Market your business less like an adult and more like a confident, excited child and your business will never be the same again!

Dads, Stay At Home Moms Are Making Money. You Can, Too.

There is a lot of talk out there about being a stay at home mom. There are forums, websites, seminars, marketing videos and even some companies dedicated to nothing but women who want to work from home.

However, if you’re a father your desire to be a stay at home dad can be just as great. Whether you’re a single father or a man who wants to spend more time with his kids and his wife I’m here to tell you that being a stay at home dad is very, very possible and it can be the greatest decision you could ever make for your family!

For a lot of men being a stay at home dad isn’t even something that might enter your mind. After all men are traditionally the ones who are suppose to leave home every day and “bring home the bacon” right?

Well believe it or not there is a way for you to spend more time with your family and at the very same time provide an incredibly income for them, possibly even more than you’re making right now.

Let’s get one thing straight, the MLM or Multi Level Marketing of 2009 is not the MLM of the past. There has absolutely without a doubt never been such a great time to make money from as there is right now.

That’s because all of your marketing can now be done on the internet and almost all of it is free if you know what you’re doing.

So if you’ve ever been a part of a home business in the past and you had a bad experience scratch all that because the game has been totally changed.

The best part about internet marketing is that you can do it whenever you want. In traditional marketing most people were busy calling lists of prospects but that meant waiting until it was the right time of day. When you marketing for free online you can do it at 2 in the morning if you want. It’s all about what works best for you and your family!

Marketing on the internet also means that you can reach more people in a shorter amount of time and that means more results faster.

Get the information you need to find out if a home based business is right for you and your family. Don’t miss out on another baseball game or dance recital because you’re working ever again! Become a full time stay at home dad and spend more time with your family and less time with your boss!

Home Based Business Success: Focus On Success, Not Failure

If you’re in a network marketing company you know they type of people I’m talking about… fault finders. These people might think they’re doing some good but all they’re really doing is holding themselves and sometimes others back.

So how do you know if you’re a network marketing fault finder? Why just check out this article of course. If you’ve done at least 3 out of the 5 things I’m about to list… watch out… you might be a fault finder!

If you… don’t like the most successful people in your company.

Look, you don’t have to love all the top earners in your company. However, if you don’t like most of them chances are it’s not them it’s you! People who aren’t successful like to find the faults of those who are when what you should really be doing is following their steps to success.

Who cares if they wore something tacky to convention or they don’t know which (their, there, they’re) to use. If they’re having success they must be doing something right! Just focus on that.

If you’re… always wanting to improve your products.

It doesn’t just have to be the products by the way, it could be the websites, the comp plan or whatever. The point is if you’re constantly wanting to improve things before you get started you’ll probably never get started.

No company is perfect so if that’s what you’re waiting for you might as well get out now. People have made hundreds of thousands of dollars and even millions in MLM with some of the stupidest products imaginable. So really… it just doesn’t matter.

If you’re… always emailing your upline with suggestions.

We’re sure your upline loves you, we’re also sure that they don’t want to get 30 emails a week from you. This is especially true if you’re emails are all ideas about how the company, the team or they could improve.

Look, your upline probably can’t change things anyway and honestly… it’s just gonna bring them down. So don’t do it!

If you… listen to stories of failure.

It’s true that for every 10 success stories in MLM there are about 100 stories of people who tried and failed. Don’t listen to them!

We’re sorry your cousins, best friends, aunt lost some money 15 years ago but listening to that kind of negativity doesn’t do anybody any good.

If you… focus on the details.

When it comes to success in MLM the details are not important. So stop focusing on them! Many, many successful 6 figure earners couldn’t tell you what they make on their 7th level. So why are you worried about it?

If you see yourself in any of these 5 examples you might just be a network marketing fault finder. But despair not! You can always turn away from your fault finding ways and trust me when you do you’re going to see a whole lot more success!

Stop finding the fault in your business and start making money in it! Isn’t that why you’re there in the first place?

How To Get Prospects To Call You

You’ve probably heard before that “the money is in the list” but what does that really mean? It means that the more people you have on your marketing list the better chance you have of signing up more people and therefore making more money in your home based business.

It is true that the money is in the list… so how do you build a giant prospecting list when you’re just getting started in your home based business? Or perhaps you’re not new to MLM you’re just new to the idea of list building. Either way, this article is designed to show you how to build the largest list possible in the shortest amount of time. Because the money really is in the list!

The first thing you’re going to want to do is set up a squeeze page. Squeeze pages are used by almost all serious internet marketers and they allow people to take a look at your website and business only after they give you their name and email address.

Some squeeze pages have lots of information the prospect needs to enter but really all you need is the first name and email. Many people aren’t comfortable putting in their phone number, address, or anything else and if you ask for it you won’t get as many opt-ins.

Once you get an opt-in they should be allowed to access your website and get the information they need. They will also be put into an auto-responder. An auto-responder is a program that sends out emails for you. This allows you to be doing other things for your business while the auto-responder markets to your prospects for you!

When a prospect is ready to talk to you personally they will pick up the phone and call you! This is the best thing in the world because you know they are really serious about working from home!

If you aren’t currently using a sqeeze page you need to get one, it’s the best thing that can happen to your online business. Many marketers use multiple squeeze pages in order to get the most opt-ins possible.

Another way to grow your list in a big, big way is by giving something away for free. People love free stuff I mean don’t you? By creating your own product (usually like a free report or an ebook) and setting up a website to give it away for free your opt-in list will grow by leaps and bounds! You’ll also of course have to make sure the product you give away is something that has to do with working from home that way your prospects will be targeted.

Don’t worry about bugging people with your emails because at the bottom of every email your auto-responder sends out there will be an opt-out link. That way the only people who stay on your list are the people who are really interested.

Finally, once you’ve set up your free product page and your business squeeze pages you’ll need to promote, promote, promote! If you don’t promote your websites only nobody (or very few) is ever going to find them. Use free sites like network marketing forums, twitter, myspace, face book, you tube and article websites to get the word out about your pages and you’ll have tons of free prospects in no time!

Follow these easy steps and you’ll have more prospects than you’ll have time to talk to in a day! Remember, your list won’t grow overnight or without some serious promotion but if you’re looking for a cost effective way to have lots and lots of people to talk to this the best method out there.

Christian Home Business Success: Be Honest With Yourself

When working your home based business there are going to be a few road blocks from time to time that you’ll have to deal with. Things like finding enough time to effectively work your business, family issues, money troubles and other things can really slow a home business down.

However the biggest stumbling block most people face when it comes to making money from home is…. Themselves. I know what you’re thinking. “Why would I limit my success... I REALLY WANT success?!”

It is true though… why is it that some people in the very same company fall flat on their faces while others make 5, 6 even 7 figures? The answer is simple but sometimes hard to hear. You have to be honest and a little tough on yourself to truly succeed working from home.

For instance, if you’re really being honest with yourself how many hours per week do you really spend working your home based business? If you are like 99% of people the answer is not enough.

It’s a really simple thing to do, you sit down at the desk in your home office and you get ready to work only instead of actually WORKING you do everything but. You clean off your desk, you organize your drawers, you waste time on the internet, you “map out a plan of action”, all of those things might make you FEEL like you’re working but if you are really honest with yourself you will see that you’re really just throwing away your time.

When we are really being honest with ourselves we start to notice that out of all the time we spend devoted to working our at home business might not be as productive as we thought at all.

Sometimes looking deeply at ourselves and holding ourselves accountable can be the hardest thing in the world to do. However, if we really truly want success it’s something that must be done.

Start writing out a list of things you want to accomplish each week for your business. If the weekend comes and you haven’t finished your list don’t let yourself off the hook… GET IT DONE! It might seem hard now but in the end it will help your business more than you could ever possibly know.

Make sure to set exciting by attainable goals for every week, month, and even the entire year. When you have goals it is much easier to track your progress and see how much you are honestly doing.

Finally if you really feel like you need more help get a friend or a spouse involved as your accountability partner. Sometimes that is the only way for you to really follow through with your goals.

Be honest with yourself and you’ll have massive success in your home based business, lie to yourself and you’ll probably fail… the choice is yours.

Only You Can Limit Yourself From Making The Income Of Your Dreams

If you could write down an amount of money… any amount of money on a piece of paper and KNOW that you would make that much money next year what would you write down?





Whatever the number you have in your mind is… it’s possible! Did you really get that? Whatever number large or small… whatever it is… IT IS POSSIBLE!

You know we really are good at limiting ourselves aren’t we? When we are young we have all of these dreams of things we want and places we want to go but somehow as we get older we just let all those dreams slip away. Why is that?

I believe that once you get out into the “real world” it’s nearly impossible to hold onto the dreams of the things you wanted when you were younger. You learn that life is harder than you thought when you were a kid and you decide that instead of that awesome car and that beautiful house you’ll just settle for not what you want… but what you can afford.

We have to start dreaming bigger dreams! When you’re a part of a home based business your dreams really are limitless because instead of waiting on a boss to decide when you get a raise of when you get to go on vacation it’s all up to you!

Once you really get your head wrapped around the concept that your dreams… whatever they are really CAN come true it makes life and your business a whole lot more fun!

I once knew a woman who just KNEW she’d never make more than $30,000 a year… EVER. She was limiting herself. There was nothing about her that made is so she COULDN’T reach her dreams… it was all in her head.

The last time I saw that lady she was making WAY more than $30,000 a year and it’s all because she stopped limiting herself and starting dreaming again and most importantly she was working toward that dream!

If you really want to know what you’re capable of all you have to do is sit down with a pen and notepad and start writing down all the things you really want in life. Once you’ve got that list look at it, put it somewhere where you can see it and think about it every single day.

Don’t EVER limit yourself, you really can accomplish ANYTHING and your home based business will take you there… but first you have to believe!
