Getting Motivated! What does it take?

Who else finds winter so UN-MOTIVATING? There are days when it's so dark and dreary it's hard to stay focused on what you need to do vs what you might want to do (stay in bed, book a trip to Hawaii, or just binge watch Netflix). That's one great reason to hire a business consultant. Someone to be accountable to. Someone who helps you stay on track. Someone who wants you to reach your goals as much as you do!

Here are a few more reasons to invest in a business consultant:
  • Do you have new projects that are under consideration?
  • Are you currently working with business clients that are difficult or complicated
  • Are you exploring options for additional services
  • Do you need advice regarding best business practices
  • Do you need marketing solutions
  • Are you interested in brainstorming and idea generation sessions
The reality is that NOW is the best time to get your business running as smoothly as possible. To have a plan in place, one that will hopefully will give you more PERSONAL time when the weather gets better and the sun is finally shining! 

I invite you to visit my website for a list of services that I offer at I do have a free 40 minute consultation so that you have time to share with me what your greatest concerns are and what type of help you might need before you even consider purchasing a consulting package. Let's talk! What do you have to lose?

In the comments, what motivates you to being an entrepreneur? Is it the flexible hours? Is it because you are doing something you love? Is it because you have always wanted to be your own boss? Or is it something else? Please share!

The Art of Staying Focused

Many new and even seasoned internet marketers find it hard to stay focused on their tasks.
When you work online it can be nearly impossible to get anything accomplished when you run across new opportunities, are tempted to visit websites, watch videos, check email, browse forums, check your stats, listen to tele-seminars, browse Google and do other distracting online activities. Not to mention other offline distractions.

Here are a couple things you can do to diminish distractions.

1. Work alone in a quiet space

If you have young children you'll understand how crucial it is to work in a quiet space where other people can't distract you. It seems just about when you're ready to start working you're barraged by requests to do something or help with something.
Now, there's nothing more important than my family but when you need to work you must get down to work.

Go to a quiet space and carve out a solid amount of time where you can be productive. If someone else is in the room with you while you're working you run the possibility of getting distracted.

2. Throw your TV out the window

That's right. Turn it off and get rid of it. This will curb your curiosity of wondering what's on TV. When you're tempted to see what's on you tell yourself "well, I'll only watch a little bit."

Before you knew it your watching an hour or more of TV and aren't getting any word done. This can also be a form of psychologically avoiding tasks you need to get done - procrastination. Procrastination is a surefire way to make sure nothing gets done.

If you find yourself doing this, remember you can always record what you miss on Tivo, or better yet, you can probably find the shows you miss on online.

3. Get Rid of Internet Distractions

While it may be fun to look online for the latest viral videos, check you stats, check email, browse forums, you can literally waste hours doing these activities and check your favorite social networking site. These activities don't get you closer to your goal.

Force yourself not to do any of your favorite internet time wasters until you've gotten some real work done and can see actual results from your real efforts.

If you don't see results don't give up and give into temptation, try again and again. When you see results then reward yourself with your favorite activity.

If you don't actually have the will power to prevent yourself from engaging in your favorite online activities there is actually software which will block these activities for you.

By implementing at least one of these strategies you'll find your productivity going up and your goals will become much closer than you thought.
