Do you wish to be a successful entrepreneur?

Do you hope you can make enough money in your online business to fire your boss and work from home?

Or, do you know, definitively, that you will stand your ground and stake your entire future on your ability to get what you want?

For those of us over 40, the so-called Baby Boomers and Generation X, this can require a huge shift in thinking. We were not schooled in entrepreneurship. We were taught that you go to school, get a job, work your way up if necessary, and retire at age 65.

For me, back in the early 80’s, the girls went to work at the slipper factory, which happened to be across the street from the high school. The boys thought that if they landed a job at the local paper mill they had it made. Neither of these businesses is in existence today.

It’s not until you get beyond the standard reasons – I want to make more money, I want to work for myself – not until you find that definite burning desire will your thoughts and actions begin to change.

• State what you want in writing. Attach dollar amounts and timelines to each phase of your success, and read it aloud morning and night.
• Visualize what your life will be like once you own it. Who can you help once you acquire time and financial freedom? Get passionate and believe in yourself.
• Avoid negative news, press and influences.
• Surround yourself with positive, successful people and tap in to their wisdom. A good mentor can save you a lot of grief and frustration.
• Pay it forward by mentoring those who are just starting their own online or direct marketing business.

I tapped in to a powerful marketing system that not only gives me the tools I need to succeed by offering a great service to others, it gives me a company with great leadership.

In fact, it was an interview that Mike Dillard of Magnetic Sponsoring fame did with Jay Kubassek, CEO of Carbon Copy Pro, that solidified my reasons for choosing this system and this company. Jay said, “why is it we will work so hard for somebody else, but not for ourselves?” Sound familiar? How many of your kids ball games did you miss? How many road raged mornings have you commuted to your job – can’t be late!
