Happy Valentine’s day everybody! Hope you got your favorite sweetie some gift or token to show how much they mean to you. I got mine a bouquet of yellow roses (her favorite) and she made me a “lover’s bag”. Anyhow, today I want to talk a little about work ethic when it comes to you and your business. Your business should be a reflection of you – your likes and dislikes, your passion and most of all it should be fun, not slavery. Some good hints for the day:
- · Work for the love of what you do. Choose to be in a business you like and doing something that is rewarding for you. Working just for money will burn you out quickly. That is not to say you shouldn’t consider money in your endeavors, but that you should put items you value most as the foundation of your business.
- · Learn to love your support team. Your fellow marketers, mentors, family, customers, downline and whoever is on your team. Home business relationships are important. Communication is the key to growing your relationships. Make it frequent and positive and see what a difference it makes.
- · Work smart and then smarter. Look at your bottom line and adjust. Never be content to ride month to month on what you’ve always done. Find ways to get better and to be more efficient. Learn new skills that can put you in front of your competition.
- · Love to reach your goals and then – celebrate! Take a little time to celebrate goals when you reach them. Goal setting is something you should look at constantly in your business and when you reach a goal, give yourself a positive reward to celebrate reaching those milestones. I often reward myself with something I like when I work hard and reach a goal just to commemorate the journey.
Learning to love “you” can be the key to making a success in your business. Work hard and then reward yourself along the way. Work with your support team to make it happen and stay in contact with them to nurture those relationships. Make your business a personal passion you can be proud of.
