Make More Money

Time To Make Money When You Sleep…

Making Money While You Sleep

Making Money While You Sleep…

In any career!

I meet 1,000s of business owners & entrepreneurs every single month and what most of us have to realize is that we are all truly self-employed. That means that we work for ourselves, yet if we stopped working tomorrow we would have no income because we truly are our business!

This means that we should start thinking about what we can create that makes us Passive Income. Passive Income is defined by Wikipedia as Earnings from a business that does not require direct involvement from the owner. So, I have put together some ideas and examples for you to really start thinking about this as it’s important that Passive Income becomes part of your business so that you can be working ON your business and not always IN your business.

Here are 25 great ideas of the kind of  things you can do:

  1. Invest your money and earn interest.2. Purchase assets like Real Estate, Equipment, Stocks, Bonds, Etc.3. License your product or service and earn royalties.4. Franchise your idea.5. Write books or e-books.6. Video tape what you do and sell DVDs.7. Video tape what you do and start an online membership site.8. Create CDs or MP3s that people can listen to while mobile.9. Create an online University (training) and create modules that people can join.10. Joint Venture with other companies.11. Create an affiliate program.12.  Referral & Loyalty Programs.13. Well trained Employees.14. Educate your Friends & Family.15. Networking Groups.16. Executive boards.17. Mastermind Groups.18. Website.19. Automated Social Media.20. Autoresponder campaigns.21. Conference calls.22. Webinars.23. Effective Advertising – Print, TV, Radio, Pay-per-click, Editorials, Advetorials, etc.
    24. Educated Vendors & suppliers.25. Automated video email.

The key is to always be thinking of a long term plan to ensure that you are creating products that will grow your passive income.

BLOG posts to e-book to DVD series

You have heard about how good it is for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for you to be blogging about your business, products, services, etc. So, why not think big picture and spend time creating BLOG posts each and every week that you could easily collate into a book after a year. If you were BLOGGING once a week you would have 52 topics and you could launch an e-book or physical book called 52 Ways to ….

Similarly, you could video BLOG and create a DVD series called 52 Ways to….

You should always be thinking along the lines of “How can I turn what I am doing now into long term passive income for my business?”

Record all conference calls, seminars, webinars, etc. even if you do not have a plan today at least you will have the material available when you decide to create passive income in your business in the future.

What about Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Financial Planners, Professional Services, etc.?

One thing that all the above careers have in common is that they are experts in their fields and can create so many different products and services that once they are experienced in their field that they could sell. Selling knowledge is huge and is now called InfoPreneuring and can make massive Passive Income. You can create training DVD, CDs or booklets on how you overcame the challenges in the 1st year, what to do and not to do in your first year, 2nd year and onwards… There are so  many opportunities… you just have to be incredibly creative.

Feel free to ask questions or leave comments as this topic is massive and you should be thinking passive!

What Are You Hunger For!!

Difference Between Desire and Hunger!

Small Business Solutions…

I meet 1,000s of business owners throughout the year and it amazes me how many of them want to be successful, yet they are not prepared to do what ever it takes to achieve the results that they desire.

There is a huge difference between you having a DESIRE to be successful and having a HUNGER to achieve outrageous results.

You may ask what is the difference between DESIRE and HUNGER?

DESIRE is a nostalgic feeling that we get when we really want something – we can visualize it and feel it and that’s about how far it goes…

HUNGER is a deep seated core feeling that you will do whatever it takes to achieve the result you are after and you will not stop until you achieve it. In fact, you will not listen to people around you that are naysayers or have not built a successful business – you just go out and build until the result is achieved.

I often ask people if they want to be successful and they always reply “Of course I do!!!” then I say great, there is a networking event in Vancouver tonight where they expect 100s of business owners and potential customers… let’s go!

Then all the excuses start… I can’t, I have prior engagements, I am tired, I have had a long day already, I have to organize a sitter and it costs money… blah blah blah blah blah!

If you want success you have to cut the excuses and get off your butt and do whatever it takes – Cut the DESIRE and get a HUNGER for what you are doing!

People who are full of excuses & reasons & justifications are the ones who DESIRE to have success – and who bubble along and years down the line are still in the same place they were a few years back.

One of the key ingredients to convert you from DESIRE to HUNGER is making sure you are PASSIONATE about what you are doing. If you do not jump out of bed with a bounce in your step to go and do your business every day then how can you expect to have a HUNGER to do whatever it takes?

Are you prepared to do whatever it takes? And, I mean do whatever it takes?

You only have to be extreme for 6 – 12 months and you will be amazed by the results you will achieve! Let your loved ones know that you are going to be scarce and that it’s part of achieving results for the entire family!

This is a topic that I am hugely passionate about and it drives me crazy when people do not get out of their own way!

It’s really simple!

Cut the Excuses, Justifications and Reasons… convert DESIRE to HUNGER and you will be amazed by the RESULTS!

Defining Your Product & Service, Defining Your Market & Finding Them!

Define, Define and Find!

Small Business Solutions…

I was at our 1-day Exposure Warrior recently and really took note of how many business owners don’t really understand how to create an effective message to tell people what they do in their business. When someone approaches you at a networking meeting or some such kind of social function, you need to be able to tell them what you do in a very short punchy sentence. In fact, you need to be able to write down what you do on the back of a matchbox. That means it has to be short to the point and informative so people do not to spend large amounts of time understanding what you do!

I’ve put this into a very simple to understand process!

It’s called define, define and find

The reason why most business owners cannot tell people exactly what they do is because they really don’t know themselves exactly what they do. This is the firstdefine! You need to be very confident and clearly define what product or service that you are delivering, it needs to be crystal clear in your mind so that when somebody else asks what you do, you can accurately portray and let them know what you do without having to spend minutes describing or convincing them of what you do. If they have a confused look on their face after you have introduced your business – then you have a lot of work to do to get your message crystal clear!

Is your business well defined and do you know exactly what product and/or service that you are delivering? It is critical that you get this done in order to define exactly who your customers are and your target audience is?

This is the second define! Once you know what product or service you are delivering and have it well defined, what you want to do for them, and what solutions your products or services deliver to them, then you can go out and find the markets that you are after!

Most business owners and entrepreneurs never accurately define their product or service, the market that they are after and where their market hangs out. In many cases it is like going out from your business every day and looking for clients in all the wrong places – you may be networking, attending meetings, education groups, etc., yet you do not even know if you market that you are targeting even attends these events.

I had a student yesterday sit down and write out exactly who they were targeting. Once they had completed this I asked him what kind of events he was attending, and what the demographics of the people at those events were. He was amazed and realized that the events that he was attending were not where his target market hangs out.

Take the time to define your products and services, which markets you are targeting with them, and go out and find them and hang out in the right areas where your target market hangs out.
