Do You Want To Be The Next Bill Gates?

Over 25 years ago Bill Gates had an idea. Yes, one simple but amazing idea. That idea is now worth over $US50 billion in net income to him, making him the richest man on the planet! That idea is now residing inside your own computer!

Did you know you can turn your own idea into perpetual profits – an unending, unlimited and unfathomable stream of income. You will finally be able to quit your J.O.B. Do you want to know an amazing secret to perpetual profits? Create an asset!

Here is the simple formula: Your idea = Assset

What is an asset? I read somewhere that “it is something that you own that puts money in your pocket”. Think of your favorite rock stars – they have made millions from their asset (Music Cds). Their musical ideas are created into songs. Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Elvis Presley & Madonna have billion dollar empires from their asset – they make perpetual income year after year from their music. Stephen King and Tom Clancy create their wealth from their asset (Books) – it produces money for them years after their idea became books. And when Bill Gates sleeps he earns billions from his asset (Software) every day.

Did you know you can make tons of money through the internet by marketing your idea properly. The internet is a powerful tool to sell your ideas for lots of cool cash. For example Dell Inc, the technology giant, earns $US65 million a day in sales from their website? Yes $US65 million per day from selling their asset (computers)!!! You also can start earning perpetual profits, and millions too from your own website. Just believe in yourself.

Your idea doesn’t need to be complicated. Your idea can be simply information, such as “How to pickle eggs” or “How to scalp on the Forex market”. This may be in the form of e-Books, Audio products or Video products. Whatever it is turn your idea into an asset and market it on the internet!

This Internet Marketing stuff really works. Take action now – turn your asset into millions (maybe billions).

So what is your idea? Remember Bill Gates was once like you - he was just a man with an idea.

Forex Avenue: The Road to Riches

The internet has completely changed the business world. It has changed the whole concept of how to be successful in a home business. It has also provided the opportunity for many to give up the 9 to 5 world and seek their dream on the internet. Some have made this transition seem easy and others continue to struggle.

Have you been thinking about making this change? Do you have what it takes to make this a successful move? Let's take a look at a few of the things that ultimately decide who makes the grade and who goes down with the ship.

1. Work at something you enjoy. There is nothing quite like enjoying your job. It puts a whole new perspective on the world. If you like what you do, working becomes a pleasure instead of a chore. Some of you are probably thinking, yeah right, work is not something to enjoy but rather just a pain that we have to endure.

If you decide to work from home, pick out something that you will enjoy. If you don't enjoy what you are doing, it will become the same pain as the job you have now. You may enjoy it at first, just because you are home or just because it is new. That will wear off and when it does, you had better be doing something that you enjoy or you will be one of the passengers on the sinking ship.

2. You must be disciplined. It is very easy to start wandering when you are working on the net. The internet is full of fun and interesting things and it is very easy to find yourself surfing or looking at something totally unrelated to your work.

An email arrives that looks interesting and you decide to go check it out. Fifteen or twenty minutes later, you all at once realize that you were working.

When I first started working on the internet, I found that it was taking hours to do a forty-five minute job. Use your work time wisely. I have interests that I like to explore but I have learned to do that at other times. When I go to work, I concentrate on working. I have cut my work time down tremendously since I impimented this technique.

3. Don't expect to be successful overnight. So many people have heard the internet success stories and think wealth will come fast and easy. You are starting a business and building a successful business takes time and effort.

I would not discourage anyone from seeking their dream on the internet. I never enjoyed going to work for someone else every morning. Be realistic when you start out, don't expect success to just fall in your lap. If you go in with the expectations of making a big income your first few months, you are most likely going to be disappointed.

4. Be prepared for change. The internet is ever changing and to be a successful business person on the net, you have to be willing to change as well.

You will find techniques that worked last week are antique this week. If you want to be successful working on the internet, you must keep up with the times. There is a lot of great information out there and I suggest that you devote some time each week to looking to find these new ideas.

Check out other businesses in your field and see what they are doing. Initiate contact with other business owners in your field. You may not only learn something new but joint ventures are one of the most succesful means of doing business on the net.

The internet is a great place to work. If you make that decision to venture out into cyberspace as a means of earning an income, take some time and find something you like. Create good work habits, don't have unreasonable expectations and be willing to change.

These things alone are no guarentee you will be a success but it is at least a good road to start down.

The 7 Best-Kept Secrets To Ultimately Achieve Success in Your Life and Your Home Business

"Success." Just mention the word and you will imagine eyes beaming, faces lighting up, lips smiling. The word in itself seems to ring a happy tune, doesn't it?

Achievement. Accomplishment. Victory. Triumph. These are just few of the numerous synonyms of the word "success." Likewise, the word is usually associated with feelings of joy, pride, contentment, and gratitude.

Who doesn't want to be successful? Definitely not you and me! Of course, we all want to succeed in whatever endeavor we choose to get into. In fact, it is said that the very purpose of our existence in this world all boils down to this --- to ultimately achieve success in life, to enjoy life to the fullest.

Now, when we say success, we may be referring to various things. We may mean success in studies, success at work, success in the family, or success in business.

It is important to note, however, that success is not all about money. Although financial gain, which leads to living a comfortable life, is a significant component of a successful life, we should bear in mind that success is actually a personal thing.

Can you really achieve success in your life and your home business? The answer is a big, fat Y-E-S! Of course, you can! In fact, the two should go hand in hand. A successful home business, or financial success, can help you achieve personal success or enjoy a successful life. On the other hand, personal success can inspire and motivate you to be more productive and all the more increase the success rate of your home business.

But how can you do that? By discovering, understanding, and applying 7 best-kept success secrets to your daily living, in general, and to your business, in particular.

Are you now ready to spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S in your life and in your home business? Then read these powerful, best-kept secrets especially revealed to you!

*S - Self worth. Be aware of your self worth.

Know who and what you really are. Then strive to become the best of who and what you can be. As one character from the popular film, "The Matrix," put it: "Know thyself... To become who you are, know that you are."

Bill Gates, the world's richest man with a net worth of $46.5, knew that he wanted to work with computers the very minute he was introduced to one. At a very tender age of 13, he was already programming computers.

By discovering and accepting what your interests and skills are, you can decide which field you should get into. Then you can further develop your skills to achieve your goals, to ultimately achieve success in your life and in your home business.

Are you now aware of your self worth?

*U - Uniqueness. Know that you are a unique person.

You have your own special talents. Believe in yourself. Know your strengths and weaknesses. By knowing your strengths, you can enhance them and more effectively put them to productive use. By knowing your weaknesses, you can overcome them and eventually transform them into strengths.

Did you know that by merely listing down your unique talents, you can significantly improve your self worth? Be thankful of these unique talents and utilize them to help you achieve success in your home business and in your life.

How can your unique talents lead you to the peak of success?

*C - Commitment. Make a commitment to yourself and your goals, as well as to others.

If you have commitment, everything else will follow. Being a "committed person," you will work really hard to fulfill your responsibilities. You will be accountable for your own actions.

Be consistent. You cannot achieve success overnight. Commit yourself to do whatever needs to be done --- on a consistent basis. Be patient and persevering as you encounter different obstacles along the way. Do not hesitate to take an extra step or two to reach your goal and ultimately achieve success in your home business and in your life.

Are you committed to your goal of making your business grow and achieving success in your life?

*C - Creativity. Be creative enough to see what not everyone can see.

See an opportunity in every situation. Better yet, create the opportunity yourself. Do not just see the extraordinary out of the ordinary

Are You Tired of Your Job

If you're working a regular job and tired of the daily grind, you may be thinking how great it would be to have your own business and be your own boss. Or maybe you probably have ideas about how you could manage the job or department better. Soon you're thinking it would be great to start a business of your own and run it the way you like. It might surprise you to learn that thoughts like these are quite common.

Starting your own business is not easy no matter what you've heard. Some people are in the right place at the right time and the stars are aligned and suddenly, they're a success. Stop and think how many people you know that have been this lucky. It's very rare to succeed the first time and in fact, many wealthy people don't succeed until they've created or lost one, two or three businesses. The very reason they are a success in their own business is because of the failures they have had or great obstacles they have had to get past.

There are other people that have started their business only to find out later that it's actually worse than the job they had. This usually occurs when they have either failed to plan or have left out an integral part of the business plan. One of the most important steps in planning is your vision; not the vision of your success, but how you will get there.

For instance, it it's your dream to own a storefront, you'll have to consider the regular hours of the other stores in the location you're interested in. You'll have to be in your store, ready for customers usually six days a week, eight hours or more each day. If you're not open when regular foot traffic occurs, you'll lose money unless you find another way to bring in customers. And don't forget the extra hours you'll put in for bookkeeping, cleaning, organizing, etc., all time away from your family and friends.

Many people are giving up their job for the excitement of working from home, preferably in their pajamas. Usually, this involves doing business on the Internet or creating and selling services or products locally. Doing business in your neighborhood means you have to get to know a lot of people, either personally or through their business and related organizations. And doing business on the Internet is just another way of distributing your service or product.

To market your own service or product involves selling. Unless you're someone who could sell anything to anyone, you're going to need a lot of training and experience to make a sale. Even selling something you use and recommend yourself is quite difficult if you're not a social animal.

If you have an idea for a business that you run from your home, you'll have to consider the local zoning laws and association by-laws when applicable. Having employees arrive to your home could get you complaints from your neighbors or even worse, a violation when they call the city or the association to file a complaint.

Now let's think about when you'll make a profit. It takes time and money to establish a customer base and you will need enough money to support your business and yourself in the meantime. What will you do if it takes longer than you anticipated? Best to have a backup plan in case this were to occur.

If you're still interested in starting your own business, the key will be to know your target customer. Find out everything you can about them and make sure you are targeting them in your advertising and with the quality of your product or service.

If you're selling business-to-business, you will want to advertise in their publications, join the same organizations and generally hang in the same circle of business. If you're doing business with the public, direct your advertising efforts to local direct mail and neighborhood publications. People generally read local periodicals to know what's going on in their area. Writing an article for one of these publications is even better. And those direct mail coupons for residences are usually opened when received.

Running your own business is nothing like having a job with someone always assigning your next task or project. You will have to make those decisions yourself and make sure customer service is not affected along the way.

Once you have your business set up, it's going to take a lot of nurturing and long hours. Be ready for the day when you think all is lost and find a way to push through. If you don't push through these difficult periods, you will lose the business. For those having the ability to continue to push through, the rewards can be fulfilling and sometimes lead to surprising wealth.

The Mathematical Formula For Making Money

No matter what markets you serve; what products you sell; or what marketing tools you use, in business there's one truth you cannot escape.

Embrace this truth and profits will flood your business.

Disregard this truth and financial-cancer will eat you.

What is this truth?

Quite simply, the size and speed of your entrepreneurial success is directly proportional to your understanding of The Mathematical Formula For Making Money.

Despite serving as the corner stone of every single commercial success since the dawn of commerce most businesses neglect its power. Being so familiar with the diluted version of the formula these businesses overlook the enormous profit-potential held within.

The Formula

Mindful of this blind-spot, let's now take a close look at the Mathematical Formula For Making Money:

Leads x Conversion Rate = Customers

Customers x Average Dollar Sale x Sales Per Customer = Gross Profits

Gross Profits x Profit Margin = Net Profits

Please pay close attention to what I am about to tell you: your number of customers; your gross profits; and your net profits are the least important figures in this formula.


Because they merely represent outcomes. They tell you how good or bad you're doing without telling you why. And without knowing why you're doing so well (or so bad) you are in no position to fix the cause with speed and accuracy. All you can do is guess and implement random strategies in the hope that one day your results will improve.

The real power of this formula is stored within the five highlighted variables (a.k.a. levers).

A Demonstration Of Power

Quite literally, when you apply these levers to your business your profits will increase exponentially.

Allow me to demonstrate.

Assume for the moment that your business currently operates under these circumstances:

Leads Per Annum = 10,000
Conversion Rate = 0.1 (10%)
Av. Dollar Sale = $50
Sales / Customer = 2 per annum
Profit Margin = 0.2 (20%)

Plugging these into the formula gives you a net profit of $20,000 per annum.

Let's now demonstrate the impact of improving progressively more levers without increasing your overall effort:

Case #1: Improve leads by 100%

Net profit = $40,000
Profit to Effort ratio = 1:1

I.e. for every % increase in effort you get the same % increase in profit.

Case #2: Improve leads and conversion rate by 50% each.

Net profit = $45,000
Profit to Effort ratio = 1.25:1

I.e. for every % increase in effort you get a 1.25% increase in profit.

Case #3: Improve your leads, conversion rate and average dollar sale by 33% each.

Net profit = $47,052
Profit to Effort ratio = 1.35:1

I.e. for every % increase in effort you get a 1.35% increase in profit.

Case#4: Improve all levers except profit margin by 25% each.

Net profit = $48,828
Profit to Effort ratio = 1.44:1

I.e. for every % increase in effort you a 1.44% increase in profit.

Case #5: Improve all five levers by 20% each.

Net profit = $49,766
Profit to Effort ratio = 1.49:1

I.e. for every % increase in effort you get a 1.49% increase in profit.

Observation: By simply increasing the number of levers you improve you magnify your leverage. In other words, for the same amount of effort, the more levers you improve the more your profits improve.

In this example we see that by spreading your effort over all five levers you increased your net profits by $29,766. Compared to the $20,000 increase gained from improving only one variable we see that your profit growth is almost 50% greater for doing nothing more than spreading your resources over all five levers. Imagine all the extra money you could be generating right now without any extra effort. All it takes is a simple change in focus.

Conclusion: To leverage your efforts for maximum returns you must focus on improving all five levers in your business.

An Even More Powerful Demonstration

Next, let's demonstrate the impact of improving all five variables by progressively larger amounts:

Case #1: Improve all 5 levers by 10% each.

Net profit = $32,210
Profit to Effort ratio = 1.22:1

N.B. Here's how to work out the Profit to Effort ratio. First of all work out the % increase in profit. This is derived by taking the original profit of $20,000 away from the new Net Profit and dividing the result by $20,000. In this instance our $12,210 increase in profit represents a 61% growth. Next, determine the relative effort by simply adding the % increases in each lever. In this example our relative effort is 50% (i.e. 5 x 10%). Finally, divide the % increase in profit by the % relative effort and you'll have the Profit to Effort ratio.

Case #2: Improve all 5 levers by 25% each.

Net profit = $61,035
Profit to Effort ratio = 1.64:1

Case #3: Improve all five levers by 50% each.

Net profit = $151,875
Profit to Effort ratio = 2.64:1

Case #4: Improve all 5 levers by 100% each.

Net profit = $640,000
Profit to Effort ratio = 6.20:1

Observation: As you continue to improve all five levers the magnification factor on your net profit increases at an exponential rate.

In this example we see that when we doubled our effort from case #2 to case #3 our leverage increased by 61% (i.e. ((2.64 - 1.64) ÷ 1.64) x 100). But when we doubled our efforts once more from Case #3 to case #4 our leverage increased by 135%

This has to be one of the most magnificent realisations you could ever make in business.

Conclusion: Never stop improving all five levers of your business.

A Tragic Habit - And How To Fix It

Clearly these two examples demonstrate the power of leveraging all five variables in your business.

Tragically, most businesses seem to care about only one of these levers - the number of leads. To make matters worse, of all the levers this one will cost you the most to improve!

So if you're stuck in the 'drive-more-traffic-to-my-business' trap - STOP! Instead, harness the multiplying power of all five levers and you'll find that your profit to effort ratio will skyrocket.

Or to put it another way, by applying all five levers to your business (instead of only one) you will make more money with less effort.

Right about now you may be thinking to yourself, "That's all well and good in theory but how could I possibly increase all five levers by such large amounts?"

Although there are over 200 ways to amplify these levers space restrictions preclude me from discussing the how-to's here. What's important for now is that you understand the magnifying potential stored within this formula. With this understanding achieving a 100%, a 200% or even a 1000% increase in profit is well within your grasp.

The answer...NONE!

The beauty of an online business is that you can start an online business anywhere, anytime with very little startup capital. In fact, some opportunities will even allow you to make money online without having to come up with a single cent at all!

That’s precisely why many people quit their day jobs and start their own online businesses and make a very nice income working from the comfort of their homes.

It’s not all hype, for sure, because thousands and thousands of people are making an income online (if not a fortune), why not you? Why not your next door neighbor? Why not your sister? Anyone can make money online.

There are exceptions to that rule, I know several internet marketing gurus who have made more than that in 24 hours, but that kind of success didn’t happen overnight most of the people in this caliber have been working online for years and years to get to this point. The truth is that YES, you can make money online and you can even get insanely rich! But it takes time. It takes effort. It takes patience. It takes perseverance. In actual fact, I can tell you from personal experience that it’s not very different from any other types of ‘conventional’ businesses. There’s no miracle formula and there’s no magic wand to wave. However, just like with anything in life, you’ll probably have to work very hard at your business before you start to make money online.

With that said, I will now tell you that it is POSSIBLE to make money online…..very possible and once you learn the ropes, you can duplicate that system and make more and more money online quite effortlessly and easily. With the kind of information and resources available online, to make money from an online business is not only possible, it’s almost a sure thing as long as you pick a legitimate opportunity and stick with it.

Thought Creates Reality Especially When It Comes To Money

Have you ever wondered what’s in money that drives people crazy? Not that they go insane or something, but the fact that everything suddenly changes when the focus of the episode is diverted to money matters.

Why is there such a thing called “money talks?” Is it really the money that makes the world go round? These and many other questions continue to proliferate in the minds of the many especially when they see how money can influence things particularly our way of thinking.

There are so many instances that people would immediately respond to a certain stimulus where money is involved. There is always this unseen force that compels people to react immediately and act on it on an instant.

In the Internet, people would normally click on links that they thought would give them ways how to alleviate their lives. They immediately respond to an advertisement even if the matter has no solid foundation yet as to whether it will give them the advantage they were looking for or not.

If we are to look at it closely, to earn money is not basically based on the premise that somebody has to work hard to earn it. Why are the rich people do not have to do so? If you are to ask some executives of well know businesses, they would tell you that it’s not more on how they worked hard for it but on how they perceive their dreams would come true.

In this sense, we can clearly state that to be successful is a matter of attitude and perception in life.

This kind of thinking can be traced back to the pragmatic view of some philosophers about life. In pragmatism, people say that something will work out, will eventually come true if it gets us what we want. This means that a certain goal or a certain dream, though how vague it may seem at first, is deemed and considered true if it is linked to something that is good, beneficial, desirable, and worthy. In most cases, these things connote money.

That is why, because of the present economic situation, the idea of perceiving money as the answer to almost all of life’s problems is worsened. Poverty and deprivation on some of man’s basic necessities are the most common reason why people would want to have money. And the very point that most people lack knowledge on the basic utilization of money is detrimental enough to worsen the situation.

For those who know how to utilize money are those who control people from poverty. Plus, the mere deficiency of knowledge about money makes everything heavily burdened. This results to a microcosm of people being controlled by some unseen forces where they are the only ones who gain benefits from money.

In reality, if are only keen enough to observe what is going on around us, we can clearly see that we seem like robots being instructed what to do, how to feel, what to feel.

Take for example the alarming condition of the oil prices in the world market. Those who are in control would dare say that the oil production is getting minimal that is why its price in the world market is gradually increasing.

Consequently, because we are unaware of what is going on around us, we tend to believe it is so and therefore, another problem is created where money is the main focal point of the issue.

We know there are problems, anxieties, and struggles all connected to the organization we are confined but we just cannot see the main basis of the problem.

How can we solve it? To do that, we must first identify what causes the problems to happen. Where did it come from?

Thereafter, if we already know what the main cause is, we can easily modify the way we perceive on things. If everything’s slowly taking shape, we can now clearly see the reality that money is not the cause of everything. We can solidly assert that where money is involved it is not the main attraction.

Besides, when the world was created, there’s no presence of money yet, right? So, when thought creates reality especially when it comes to money, we can now clearly see the way reality is perceived by many, in which they perceived that money is not a solid foundation of truth.
