Best tip you ever received

Postby Mel on Wed Jul 30, 2008 8:57 pm

There is so much business advice floating around the internet, it's hard sometimes to make heads or tails of what to do with it.

What is the best piece of business advice or best tip you've received? How did it impact you or your business?

Mel,

I have two thoughts to share -
1. Surround yourself with positive people. As a home business owner, you will hear negativity. Surround yourself with postive, like-minded people. Don't listen to they nay-sayers. At first, they will say you are crazy and then as you build a succesful home business, they will say you are lucky.
2. Prepare your mind for success. Leaders are readers. Continually feed your mind. MLM Nuts and Bolts by Jan Ruhe and Beach Money by Jordan Adler are my most recent books. Both are great!

The best advice we received was, "You oughta write a book."

We did. And we built two websites to support the book. And two blogs. And three Squidoo lens.

In August we'll get a royalty check for $1200 plus another $104 Adsense revenue. Now, if we could just do that every month!!!

Great advice ladies

Lisa... I totally agree with the "leaders are readers" theory. Reading and learning new things helps not only in business but it also keeps the mind sharp.

Beth... Wow! That's not too bad for your first book. Maybe you can write a part 2 or a supplement to your book that you can sell on a regular basis.

The best advice I have ever read on the internet....

Provide good content and the rest will happen on it's own.
