QUESTION FROM ROSE:
Where on Earth do you start? I've been an employee for most of my life. How do I make the shift to being a business owner? I'm really overwhelmed right now.
ANSWER FROM LORAL:
Well, you hang out with me, and you hang out with our community. How you get started is, you don't go through and do this arduous business plan and all this drama. If you're not a book reader, the fastest thing in our system that you can do is attend one of our 3 Days 2 Cash workshops. You're guaranteed to make money and we will have a business up in three days for you. If you don't know about it, I'd be shocked. We've been doing it for almost eleven years.
The best way to get started is to decide on what is it that you're going to sell, and how much you're going to sell it for. It's that simple; what kind of product and what kind of service. Remember, for all of you, if you don't have a product or service, sell somebody else's. That's why I'm a fan of network marketing. I didn't have a product or service, but I know I loved this financial conversation. I sold Robert Kawasaki's stuff for the first five years. I sold his game, I sold his books.
All that being said, Rose, what you really have to realize is that you come from an employee background. We all went to school to learn to be a great employee ... Being an Entrepreneur is very different, so you're not going to be great at the thing you're good at. You have to become great ... And I want you to all write this down.
As an Entrepreneur, you have to become great at marketing, selling, and managing cash flow. It doesn't matter really what your product or service is. There's plenty people in the world doing whatever or product or service that you want to do. There's tons of people telling people how to make money. Very few, if any, really know how to guarantee it, or do it, but it's cute. I say that sarcastically, and to also give a lot of you permission that if you're in a crowded space, meaning a lot of people are doing it, don't think that there's not space for somebody better and newer, or different. I don't care how crowded the space is. I don't care if it's a man industry. I lived completely in a male-dominated industry. None of that makes sense.
But I’ve learned that YOU CAN DO LESS AND MAKE MORE.
Let me explain:
- You can do less work
- Do less of what you’re not good at doing
- Do less wasting time
- Do less worrying, and
- Do less “bad” in your life.
By doing this, you can:
- Make more money
- Make more time
- Make more happiness, and
- Make more good and love in your world.
The question isn’t whether there’s something out there waiting for you to discover it or waiting for you to build a business out of – the question is when are you going to bring out that attitude, that fire, that YES! energy inside you and rediscover the power to live and lead in extreme optimism and energy?
Funny you ask this question because I talk about it in depth in my book “Yes! Energy: The Equation to do Less, Make More.” Check it out & I’m sure you’ll pull more great messages out of it.
