Be Successful By Complicating Your Life

Let’s face it, nothing in life is simple, so why do we keep trying to make it so? Take for example the hundreds if not thousands of online business opportunities, multi-level marketing schemes, get-rich-quick schemes— I could go on. Each of these opportunities and schemes offering big riches MADE EASY.

I’m sure many of you have tried some of the easy way to riches plans out there; whether it was real estate, stock trading, Internet business; whatever.

If Edison didn’t give up after over 3,000 failures what about our businesses? Do we give up if a marketing campaign doesn’t work out as expected? Or do we learn what doesn’t work and move on? Read the rest of this entry

How to Avoid Brain Drains

One of the biggest challenges to any business professional is to keep your head in the game, as they say in sports. Distractions such as television, family, coworkers, employees, etc. have a MAJOR impact on our ability to perform at our peak. Distractions—or brain drains, whatever the source, can drain our brains of valuable creative abilities and impact our business.

Here are 5 rules to follow to avoid brain drains.

1. Workplace Brain Drains. How’s your work environment? Is your office space or desk space cluttered or clean? Is it organized or haphazard? Studies show an organized workspace helps eliminate distractions and make the creative juices flow. Look around your office; is it uplifting and a reflection of you? If so, great! If not, take some time and get your space to the point it reflects your inner self and eliminate that first brain drain. Read the rest of this entry
