10 Mindsets Web Entrepreneurs Must Have To Succeed

March 12th, 2009

Entrepreneurship is a dynamic process of creating incremental wealth. Entrepreneurs willingly take part in the process of creating something new that has value by devoting time and effort and assuming the financial, psychic, and social risks. Luckily, we, as entrepreneurs, also receive the resulting rewards of independence, monetary profits from our endeavors, and the personal satisfaction of creating something viable. As the president and founder of the Association of Web Entrepreneurs and the National Association of Women Writers, I have had the pleasure of networking with, collaborating with,... Read More

February 13th, 2009

What\’s Your Programming “There is an undeniable link between your programming, the core beliefs that programming creates, the vision you develop for yourself, and the results you create.” – Randy Gage I love the quote above because the last two points really focus on the action you must take to accomplish your dreams and live passionately. We all have the same three elements to work with in order to fulfill our business dreams. We have to work with time, money, and expertise.

My Favorite Entrepreneurial Tool – Deciding My SWOT

December 12th, 2008

As the owner of four online companies, my job is to sit down every year and decide my SWOT for the next 12 months and then to consistently revisit my SWOT throughout each year and tweak as needed. I base my decisions on my experience and the emerging trends in the industries I serve. I also network, engage in learning with mentors, and a lot of the time I simply go left when everyone else goes right. I am a rebel that way and it works simply because it helps my companies stand out in a crowded marketplace. SWOT is my favorite tool to help me understand at the strategic level how to go left when... Read More

Honey, I Am Having a Business

October 14th, 2008

I coach a lot of new business owners-many of them are women-and most of them have a common struggle. They have a spouse that gets stressed about the amount of money and time it takes to build a profitable business. I know-the irony-it takes money to make money. Here are some of my recent thoughts on how you might help your non-entrepreneurial husband understand your need to “have this business”. First-sit your husband down and break the news. Say it slowly so that he actually thinks you will say “baby” at the end and then be relieved when you say “business” instead. So... Read More

Create Your Own Virtual Group Today

September 12th, 2008

Everything worthwhile in your life only comes into form through your creation. You cannot wait for the right time, the right job, the right husband, the right house, or even the right body to come to you. You have to create it. To achieve the life of your dreams, you need to spend time “visioning” what you think will make you happy. Then you get busy “acting,” moving forward, and figuring out how to create what you want. I created the right job by becoming the CEO of my own company and constantly refocusing back to my “passions” during difficult growth phases.... Read More

Much of my success with membership-based businesses is also because of my ability to continuously grow in the area of “mindsets”. Here are a number of tips to help you think and create in a big way. Tip One–Honor Your Urges One of the main reasons I left the corporate world and took the entrepreneurial plunge many years ago was so I could do more of what I enjoyed and less of what I hated.
