Business Tips Booster Pack (4 Free Resources)

This one will be short but sweet.

I want to make sure you’re getting the most value I can possibly give you.

To that end, here are my 4 favorite business tips for this week.

No, these tips aren’t mine.  They come from all over the place.

My only filter for them (and it’s a big one), is I limit the info to people whose professional success inspires me.  Helps cut down on information overload.

Success leaves clues . . . so I'm always on the look out for useful information.

Success leaves clues . . . so I’m always on the look out for useful information.

Check out these free resources.  Read them over and absorb what’s useful, but don’t be afraid to discard something if it doesn’t work for you.  The important thing is to just keep learning, applying, and tweaking as you go.

I hope you find something here that takes your business to the next level.

Without further ado, here are my favorite business resources for the week:

I loved this post.  It inspired the hell out of me.

Struggling through life is hard, sometimes to the point where trying to reach your ridiculously high goals can seem a little . . . silly.  But having a “push,” or something that gets you out of bed in the morning – something that drives you – makes all the difference.

What drives you?  Do you really feel like you deserve to be successful?  The most successful people in the world have a “push” that goes beyond just “making a lot of money” . . . and so should you!

Mario Brown came to the United States 5 years ago.  He spoke broken English, and left his “family” (he didn’t know his father and his mother was a longtime heroin addict) behind back in Germany.  At the time, he had only $500 to his name.

Now, he’s one of the world’s most successful internet marketers.  He coaches other people how to make more money online.  He and his wife are able to travel around the world on a flexible schedule.  And he enjoys a 7-figure annual income.

Invest 10 minutes of your day to watch this video.  If it doesn’t destroy every excuse you might be holding on to about why you “can’t” be successful in business, nothing will.

This doesn’t pull any punches . . . and that’s one of the reasons why it’s so brilliant.

There are too many people out there trying to “squeak by” in their businesses with decent products and services.  They tend to be the same people who complain or feel slighted about getting something back in return for their efforts.

Stop worrying about perfection.

Start worrying about how you can use your unique self (including all your imperfections) to separate yourself from your nameless, faceless, cardboard-cutout competitors.

Stop worrying about getting a “fair deal” from your customers for the value you give them.

Start worrying about offering as much value as you can.  The kind of value that turns prospects into rabid fans who’ll camp out overnight in anticipation for your next product launch.

This post from Leo over at Zen Habits is almost a year old now, but I just came across it earlier this week.

Something about the idea just rings so familiar to me.  I get so excited about a new project that I burn myself.  Then I find something else and the cycle continues.

Consistent, measured actions (with a strong belief driving those actions) will lead to your business success.

Passion ebbs and flows, but you’ll come out on top if you put in the time.  Sometimes the wind will fill your sails; others you’ll have to break out your oars and row.  Just keep going and you will hit success land.

That’s it for now.  I hope you find something here that helps you out!

Have a good weekend.
