It sounds very sad. So does it mean that you as a beginner have no opportunities at all. Absolutely not! There are tons of small manufacturers and suppliers out there, who are not very well known and could not even afford to budget on their massive marketing yet. They are waiting to find retailers to spread out their brand as quickly as possible, but the problem is, if they don’t speak loudly, how are you able to hear their voice?
What is the hardest part of running a business? To get yourself started. No matter how great your idea is, you will need to start from somewhere in order to make it happen. In this post I am going to suggest 4 books that I have personally read and recommend you to do the same. Even you might not have a chance to read all of them. Pick up 1 or 2. I guarantee you that you will learn very good stuffs from them. If you want to purchase them from Amazon with a very compatible price, please simply click on the links in my post, or you can find them at the bottom of the right hand side bars on my blog’s main page.
Start with why: you want to earn extra income on regular base, yes I know, but that is what you want to accomplish, in order to differentiate yourself from your competitors, you need to understand why. “People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it” , as Mr. Simon Sinek repeated hundreds of time in his book, that is the most efficient way for you to build up your unique brand and make it very hard to be copied by other business owners.
Do it now, action takers: You want my best advice? TAKE ACTION NOW! excuse me, but seriously that is where you can stand out from the crowd. You do not just make wishes, get them fulfilled. Even couch potatoes have to press buttons on their remote control in order to change channels. Having a dream is great, but the key is not to judge or adjust your dream. It’s to make it happen. I read and listened 6 different books (some of them are audio books) from Dr. Wynn Dyer and his powerful message changed my life completely. I still remember the days I was struggling and Dr. Dyer is the light in my darkness. I can not tell you enough how great he is.
Live with your passion: Statistic shows 90% of the business failed in the first 3 years. Why is that? Because to survive is very critical. Before you taste the first little bit of success, you often find your patience is falling off the cliff. There is always noise around you. It disappoints you and talks you out of business. It does its best to throw you back to your couch. Therefore in order to keep yourself motivated and inspired, you need something to keep you up whole night – this thing is called passion. To live your true passion, there is nothing better than that. I was feeling pumped while I was reading Gary Vaynerchuk‘s great book, it’s just like a can of Monster drink.
Get the excuses completely out of your life is the only way to success: I was at a big event in Calgary AB last month. There was guy sitting on the stage as an expert with an investment portfolio worth 14 millions, but I did not care too much about how big his portfolio is. As soon as he told the audience he is a dad of five boys, I immediately realize that he is very respectful person. How many times you hear yourself or somebody around you making excuses? “I am too old”, ” I am not smart enough”, “I don’t have time”, “I have family and kids to look after” blah, blah, blah. Too many excuses stop people from taking actions. Again another great book from Dr.Wynn Dyer.
Well, you might ask me, sibo, I just want to earn some extra income, why the hell I have to read all of these? My answer is, to do so, treat the things you are doing as a real business, start with why, get your wishes fulfilled; you have a passion, crush it and get your excuses out the way. To put it simple, you need to cash in your passion very single day!
