Understand Your Motivation as to Why Do You Want To Own Your Own Business

Understand Your Motivation as to Why Do You Want To Own Your Own Business” written by Mike Marko.

You have probably heard that there are a lot of reasons why you should have your own business.  I have even written about it in the blog post, Why Start Your Own Business.  There are a lot of benefits to it… including having the freedom to work your own hours, and if it is an online business you can work from anywhere you have internet access.

But when you first get started building your own business, it can seem very intimidating because you have to learn something new.  Or if you have a full time job (and full time life) finding time to work on your business can be tough.  It can sometimes be difficult to do what needs to be done… and much easier to relax in front of the television.

That is why it is important to know why do you want to own your own business

Do You Know Why Do You Want to Own Your Own Business?

There can be any number of reasons why you want to own your own business, but what is that ONE reason you have that will drive you to work on your business even when you temporarily lost that drive?

For me it is creating an amazing lifestyle for Bren and myself.  When I want to take it easy (which happens at times), I think back and remind myself that I am doing it for her.  I want to create that amazing lifestyle that you read about in magazines.

The following video talks about how to come up with a “WHY” that will drive you.

VIDEO: Know WHY You want to Own Your Own Business

Here are some ideas that might help you come up with solid “Why do you want to own your own business”.

1. You Don’t Have a Boss

This is an easy one… who wants to be told what to do?  Imagine what your life would be like if you could do what you wanted when you wanted to… and that you reaped the benefits of your own time?  Now some bosses can be good because they are great mentors… but that isn’t always the case (probably rarely the case).  So there is an attractive reason for being your own boss.

Instead you can be your own boss and be responsible for your own success.  You get to decide on the direction of your business, not someone else.  There is a lot of freedom that comes with that.  Plus you can’t be fired.  🙂

2. You Work When You Want To

If you prefer to work at night (maybe you’re a night owl, or have kids) then having your own business is a great solution.  You have complete control over your day.  If you want to sleep in… you can.  You have that flexibility.

3. Satisfaction

It is so much more satisfying to know that YOU benefit from your hard work directly rather than some corporation.  If right now you work 8, 10, or even 12 hours a day… wouldn’t it be better to use those hours to build your personal future?

4. Profits

Yeah, I know there is some degree of the unknown. There is a certain amount of losing-money-risk-factor.  But to be honest, when does life not have risks?  This is completely normal.  Your job doesn’t pay you in advance… so what happens if you can’t come into work because of a family emergency?  Promotions are rare and pay rise not very significant.  Now on the other hand, when you invest in your business and work hard on your success your profits can be 10 times bigger than your normal salary.

5. You Learn a Lot

Unfortunately, people only remember 10% of the things they learn by watching and listening BUT learn 90% of the things they do.  You will learn a LOT by actually DOING your business, and researching and then adapting as needed.

6. No Boredom

The work is varied.  Since you are in charge of the company you aren’t limited to doing just one tedious task.  One day you can be talking to potential customers, the next you can be balancing the books (or meeting with your bookkeeper).  Every day is new and exciting.

Wrap Up

This is just a small list of potential reasons why you want to own your own business.  What are your reasons?  Come up with one and share it below.  We would love to hear what it is.

If you don’t have your own business yet, and would like to start an online business, then check out our review on IPAS 2.  It is the system we are recommending.

Here’s to your future success!

You are an Entrepreneur

You are Already an Entrepreneur

You’re probably thinking Ah, No, I’m not… I’m not self-employed, have never founded a start-up venture, and I’m certainly not a risk taker.

But you don’t have to own a small business to consider yourself an Entrepreneur. You’ve probably been using an entrepreneur mind-set in your current job and not even been aware of it.

Even If you have a job working for a company 9-5, you’re probably already an entrepreneur.

With advances in technology and globalization today, your job is no longer as secure as it was 50 years ago.  There’s competition from workers from other countries and women are staying in the job market longer. It’s not typical to stay in the same company for 30 or 40 years and retire with a pension like it was a generation ago. We are forced today to adapt to the changing economy all the time by networking, looking for opportunities elsewhere,  and considering a non traditional career path. More and more, it is up to us to learn a new skill or train to invest in ourselves to ensure employment in the future. These skills we’ve learned out of survival are the very skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur

So whether you are an artist, designer, or writer, a scientist, marketing a product, or finding new and better way to sell houses. To survive in todays changing job market you have had to go through the creative/entrepreneur process and with today’s changing work force, it’s critical to your survival to act more and more like our careers are our own small business.

And its easier than you think to develop some of these habits because it’s inherent in our nature as creative human beings, and something you’ve already been doing without realizing it.

In other words …everyone is a least partially already an entrepreneur!

In the list below count how many of these tasks you are already performing in your current job or as a side job.

Entrepreneurship is about:

• taking risks
• solving problems
• thinking outside the norm
• developing new ideas
• taking it upon your self to learn a new skill
• generating opportunities
• network building
• adapting
• dealing with uncertainties
• building relationships
• seeking break out opportunities
• navigating tough challenges
• exploring what works and what doesn’t
• accepting change

Acknowledge your inherent entrepreneur mindset.

Your Unique Entrepreneur Gifts

We all have unique gifts and talents to share with the world. Don’t make the mistake of relying on your job for security. Realize you are a born creator and a born entrepreneur and have probably been practicing some of the skills necessary all of your life.

It’s up to you what level you want to participate.

Own your entrepreneur nature, and next time you’re at a party and someone asks you what you do for a living say, “I’m a creative entrepreneur.” It’s a great way to break the ice!

If your interested in expanding on one of the four pillars of success check out the  iPAS 2 system to make it easy to get started in a small business and take your entrepreneur mindset to the next level.

Don’t miss out on the way all the high earning guru’s make millions of dollars per year with the  iPAS 2 system

Overcoming Fear to Build Your Business

Overcoming Fear to Build Your Business.

Is fear holding you back from starting or growing your business?  Or are you not feeling fear at all because you are staying “in the comfort zone”?  Then this video is exactly what you need to watch.

The following video is a wake up call about overcoming fear to build your business.

VIDEO: Overcoming Fear to Build Your Business

The above video really is a wake up call.  Don’t let fear hold you back!  Feeling fear is natural.  In fact if you don’t feel fear or anxiety then you’re not pushing yourself enough and you won’t grow.

Even very successful people feel fear.  The rock star feels fear or anxiety  before they go on stage to perform.  Athletes feel fear or anxiety right before the big game or event, wondering if they will let their team down.  Professionals giving presentations feel fear or anxiety right before they go on. They learn to channel that fear into giving a better performance.

The point I am trying to make here is that everyone feels fear… the difference is that successful people don’t let the fear govern their actions.  They perform anyway and use the fear to be better at what they do. The rock star goes on stage, the athletes take to the field, the professional gives the presentation… and the act helps them grow.

If you aren’t feeling fear or anxiety then you’re not growing!  You are playing it safe.

Overcoming fear to build your business is natural and necessary if you are going to be successful.  It is the only way to really know that you are doing all you can to build your business.  It lets you know that, “Yes, you are playing the game!”.

And if you are letting fear hold you back from even starting your own business, then you may need a mentor to help you.

Empower Network – Don’t Join Empower Network iPAS2 Just Yet…

Empower Network – Don’t Join Empower Network iPAS2 Just Yet…

If you have had any interest at all in how to make money online, you may done some research and heard of Empower Network or iPAS2.  This is my personal review, but before I get into it I want to share a quick story with you.  We go back to 2011 when Bren is introduced to marketing online with pod casting by a friend.  We are interested but due to our business life at the time we couldn’t find the time to get started.  I was skeptical… I had no experience at all with online marketing so naturally I was leery about having to learn something completely new.  So I procrastinated.

Over a year later he introduced us to Empower Network.  Bren and I spent several months trying to decide to join.  During this time we were still very busy, and we were living temporary in New York City.

I started listening to Tony Robbins around that time, and I knew I had to change things.  I realized I wanted to ramp up my income and my real estate wasn’t building up fast enough to meet my financial goals.  We took another hard look at Empower Network and decided to jump in.  We have never looked back.

The Empower Network Products

I believe that eduction is very important.  I got my bachelors and masters  in engineering.  But back then I was living in Canada (I am Canadian) and the cost of education was a lot cheaper than now.  Now living in the United States the cost of education is $40,000 in addition to the 4+ years of education.  When you look at the total tuition for the Empower Network Products it is less than  $6,500 (so a 84% discount from going to college and it will not take you 4 years to learn everything)…

Empower Network Basic level – $25/monthly

Empower-Network-Viral-Blogging-System - Mike-MarkoWhat you get in this level is your own, already setup, ready to go Blog and webpage.  It is coded with your Empower Network affiliate link banners already so all you need to do is add content daily, share it with others & get paid!  It’s really that simple…

Blogging like putting up flyers around town, except these flyers stay up forever!  No one can take them down and you pretty much own that part of the internet real estate every time you post a blog.

This is by far the best long term strategy that exists today.  Think about it; what is the internet made of?  Why do people go to the internet?  Information!!!  They visit the world wide web to see content that will answer their questions.  The whole internet is based on this.  With Empower Network you can tap into this and build a legacy around it.

The genius part about allowing everyone to have their own Empower Network Blog is the authority it has.  This blog will out perform any normal blog out there because there are so many people posting to it daily.  The Alexa rank for the main website just after 45 days is under 2,000 in the entire world.  This allows you to start blogging with authority right from the get go!

This is easily worth $25 per month!!! It’s actually worth a lot more then that…

Viral Blogging Academy – $297 one time payment

Learn how to blog like a professional.  Learn how to target your audience and make money right away from the gurus.  You will learn how to put together an action plan to build up your online business and get results fast.

This training is easily worth the $297 because you will learn what you need to do to get the results of blogs that have been around for years.

Empower Network Inner Circle – $100/monthly

This is where the education really starts!  We have some of the best of the best marketers that have been in this industry for years!  Some of them for over 20 years, and other 5 or under.  Either way they are marketing Ninjas!

Think about this for a second.  If you want to learn how to market a business on the internet, would you rather take a college course about Marketing that will cost you $400-$600 for 1 semester (about 3 months) from a guy that makes $50,000 per year or less?  Or would you want to learn about marketing from someone who does it daily and earns $50,000 per month?!  Some of these rock star marketers have earned close to $100k in 1 single month…  I know that sounds pretty outrageous but it’s true.  The best part is it’s not going to cost you $400-$600 for a semester.  It’s a measly $100 per month.  Crazy I know…

Empower Network Costa Rica Product – $500 one time payment

A few years ago David Wood was at the “No Excuses II” live event in Las Vegas. David Wood blew everyone’s mind when he presented.  He had the whole audience wanting to hear more of what he had to offer.  After the event was over about 100 people showed up in David’s Breakout Room.  He talked about the way he builds his business, how he funnels his leads through a process, telling stories of how he lived in a van and now earns 30k per month living in Costa Rica…

Right at the end he told everyone he was holding a LIVE event in Costa Rica where he is going to walk people through exactly how to create their own funnels and create a business model the way he has set it up for himself.  He sold this for $2995 and sold all 25 spots!  That’s over $70k in 1 hour… CRAZY!

Well the good news was that he recorded the training he did for those 25 people in Costa Rica, and is now offering it to you for $500!  On top of that you have the ability to earn 100% commissions on it!

15k Per Month Formula – $1,000 one time payment

You ever want to know exactly how you can earn 15k per month within the next 60-90 days?  Well that is exactly what the 15k Formula training series is all about!

This is the most in depth marketing knowledge from Social Media strategies, blogging, advanced SEO, paid marketing, magazine ads, solo ads, Facebook PPC (pay per click), Leadership training & a bonus training on exactly what it takes to earn $1,000 per day doing 1 simple task!

The trainers in this product earn 6 & 7 figures per year in this industry and by far the best of the best trainers from people like Rob Fore, Jon Mroz, Chuck Marshal, Chris Campbell, Tracy Walker, David Sharp, Aaron Rashkin and a few more!

Bottom line is you get to learn from the top people in the industry and earn $1k commissions over and over!

High Ticket Academy – $497 one time payment

This is your ticket… Learn how to sell high ticket products online.  To get an idea, this is products that sell for $5k, $10k, and even $20k… can you imagine what you could do with the commissions from just one sale?  Now imagine doing it regularly.

It is no more difficult to sell something that is worth $10k than something worth $100.  That is what this course teaches.  Don’t get this course unless you are ready to start having tons of commissions.

Empower Network Masters Course – $3,500 one time payment

This is an amazing course.  If you are at $5,000 a month right now you will learn how to break past the 10k mark.  If you are at 20k now you will learn how to break past the $30-50k mark.  All the way up to $250,000 per month!

A brand newbie to the advanced leader can benefit from this course!  I highly recommend it…

You can’t beat getting $3,000 commissions either right?

That leads me to how Empower Network pays us:

Empower Network Compensation Plan

First of all, to be qualified to earn inside of Empower Network there is a non conscionable $20 per month affiliate fee!  That allows you to earn 100% commissions from most of the products above!

Having done a lot of research, the Empower Network compensation plan is the best there is.  Some are great, some are good, but none paid out 100% commissions on products that were actually GOOD!

Yes I have seen some 100% commission programs but they absolutely sucked as a product, and it was usually a 1 time 100% commission and that’s it.  No leverage or residual income at all…  Where is the fun in building something like that?  You have to make sales consistently otherwise you don’t make any money!

Based on what I have described, do you think the Empower Network products are worth the money you spend?  I sure do!

The fact they pay 100% commission is just icing on the cake!

I also want to point out that since they pay you 100% commissions, you are getting paid as if you owned, created, did support, hosted & managed the product but you DON’T!  They do that for you and you get paid as if you did all that!

This gives the average person the ability to get paid as if they created the product but not have to worry about it!  I love that!!  I actually heard someone who created his own product that he wished he never bothered  because he would have made better money just selling Empower Network products!

They also have a built in leverage plan so you can still earn on your downline.  Your 2nd, 4th, 6th and every 5th person are passed up to your sponsor…  What this allows to happen is you can tell your team what you are doing, teach them your secrets because there is leverage in the comp plan.  You are not training your competition like other 100% commission programs out there.  You can build a long term team and generate 100% residual income pass-ups for the rest of time on each and every one of your referrals…  I love that!

Empower Network Owners

David Wood and David Sharp are industry phenomenons.  I love how they are always creating systems, teaching people what they know, never holding back and telling you how it really is!

So why would they offer 100% commissions?

The reason David Wood gives is “because they are not Wussys!”  They can actually build the business just as good as anyone else.  They didn’t want special treatment being the owners.  They are on the same playing field as everyone else in the company.  So the simple answer to how they make money from this is?  They earn 100% commissions just like you an I!  Simple straight forward and to the point!

You can tap into his skills just for being a part of the Empower Network as well… Just blog daily, share it with others, and get paid!
