Are You In It For The Short Term Or The Long Haul?

Sometimes people start a business (or take on more work) because they are looking for a quick fix to a short-term problem, for example, earning extra money for vacation. The effort they put into the business is high in the beginning and then when they reach the goal they set, then the business takes a back seat and a potential long-term income source suffers.

It is important when starting a business to have your priorities and goals straightened out. Guess what happens when you reach the short-term goals you have set for yourself? You should make new ones….in fact, you should have these goals in place before you obtain your original goals. Why? Because this is the motivating factor to remain present in your business. If you achieved what you set out for yourself…what else are you capable of? What possibilities do you see for your future? What other things do you want in life?

It is rare that a person sets out to obtain a goal and then never needs to set another one. The vacation scenario from above? Is this the only vacation the person will take? No, but when there is no new goal to take the place of the old one, then everything stops. In the future when another need arises, the person will realize how much farther ahead they would be if they would have never stopped working on their business. Has this happened to you? Did you have something that you started, a business, or learning that you stopped but now wished you would have maintained?

The great part about life is that there is always the possibility for another chance. Learn from the past and let go. Starting a business doesn’t really have an age limit. You just need the desire to learn and share what you know. You need to keep your goals current to keep your business within your present.

SFI has been around since 1998, there is definitely long-term potential there. Do not think about what you could have been, but instead focus on what is possible. You have dreams and goals that you can look to in the future, what are they? Solidify these goals and then get started on your future right away. Check out my page: at SFI. I am working on my future right now. I have things I want to accomplish and I will keep my business in the present to achieve all that I have set out for myself.

I hope you will do the same!

What I Like About SFI

When I joined SFI, there were many things that impressed me about the business. One element was that it had no start-up costs. How many businesses do you now that are like that? There is no welcome kit, or starter pack, or anything to purchase. You simply sign up and you are on your way. With one burden taken off your shoulders, you can begin to concentrate on how the business works and how to make it work for you.

Another impressive part is the sponsors. You have numerous people available to help you, either by answering your questions, or simply lending an ear when you need to talk. This is what I can do for you. You can read over my postings regarding the business, and then, if you like, you can sign up, and begin your journey with SFI. I am available to chat with you and answer questions if they pop up while you are working the business.

A great thing is that you will have the added benefit of learning from me and everyone who has been in the business before me. We have worked on increasing revenue, mentoring affiliates, and increasing our knowledge of marketing and business practices. You do not need to start at ground zero. I will share what I have learned with you. There are forums and other forms of communication where SFI affiliates share what has worked (and not worked) for them in the past. How wonderful would it be to be armed with knowledge of what has been successful already?

Just about everyone in SFI tells you that you are not going to get rich over night doing this. How refreshing. Instead, they let you know that this can be a true long-term working business for you. There is the saying that “you need to plan your work and work your plan.” This means that there will be effort required of you to succeed, and goal setting should be the foremost objective. Honestly, how will you know that you have achieved your goals if you never spelled them out? Just like running a race, if no one when tells you where the finish line is, then how will you know when you can stop running?

I can work with you to help you formulate your goals for the business and we will review these goals periodically. I am open and available to help you have a positive first start. This is a no-brainer, what are you waiting for? Contact me today! Email: SFI sign-up here –

Most people who want to start a business are looking to increase their wealth. There are three types of income that can be made when you are diversifying your wealth. These types are earned, investment, and passive income. It would be wise to have a good mix of these to round out your wealth portfolio.

Earned income is exactly as it sounds. It is money that is earned from actively working. An example of this is the hourly employee. This person is paid for the hours they work “on the clock.” The second type of income is investment income. An example would be your investment portfolio, where money is made from the sale, interest or dividend that is generated from stocks and bonds. The final type of income is passive income. What I mean by passive income is money that is made with minimal sustained effort on your part. Another word for passive income is residual income. These types of income can include rent, e-book sales, and some Internet businesses.

Some businesses offer the opportunity for more than one type of income to be earned at the same time. One such business that has multiple ways to wealth is a company of which I am an affiliate—SFI. SFI stand for Strong Future International and has been around since 1998. It began modestly with one product and a limited reach (available only in the United States). Today there are thousands of products and affiliates working all over the globe. Over the course of the next articles, I will share what I have learned about this company and what I see for my future and yours, as well.

Choosing the Business That’s Right For You: What Are You Good At?

Now you realize that diversity is the key. Great! Okay, how do you decide which direction to go? There are an endless amount of possibilities out there. The first thing you need to determine is what you are good at.

When people are asked this question, they tend to look at the big ticket items instead of seeing the strengths in the little things they do. For example, a person might state that they are a good secretary, but they need to take this statement a step further. What is it about them that makes them a good secretary? This is when true revelations begin! It is not that they are a good secretary, but that they are excellent at multi-tasking, organizing events, and keeping the office running smoothly. Even that last one can be further broken down. How do they do this? They make sure that the office is always stocked with supplies, that correspondence is flawless and goes out in a timely manner, and on and on. So, take a few minutes to reflect on your strengths. If you are having difficulty with this, then ask your family, friends, or coworkers. Sometimes they see you more clearly than you do.

Now you have your list of strengths. Which businesses cater to these strengths? Also, consider businesses that interest you and match your personality. Your strengths can match some businesses, but if a business doesn’t match your personality or interest, then it should not be considered. No reason to waste your time. Other considerations to keep in mind are your weaknesses and your personal habits. For example, are you a morning person or late-night person? Are weekends off-limits for work? Do you work better by yourself or with others? Answering these questions, and others that occur to you, will give you a better picture of the types of businesses that may work for you.

I reviewed my strengths and weaknesses and I decided to become an entrepreneur. I am currently an affiliate of SFI (Strong Future International), but we will talk of this later. I like being an entrepreneur because I have the freedom to work when I want. It is true that I cannot take a month off all the time, but if I have a family event coming up, I only need to schedule it in and adjust the business accordingly. There are no forms to fill out for time off; I am not using sick days, or anything of the sort. It comes down to prioritizing my time to ensure that family time is scheduled into my work life.

So, what are you good at?

Choosing the Business That’s Right for You: So You Want to Start a Business

The time is right for you. It is time to begin a new business venture—time to move in a new direction. You have inspiration and energy, but there is a slight problem. You are not sure of your direction. What should your business be? Where should you start and then what path do you follow? Which opportunities should you seize and which are better left alone? I can help you with this. I can be your guide through this maze, so that you can make your right decision. Now, before we begin with that, we need to touch on something you may have already heard, but it bears repeating: You need to diversify your life. What? You need to diversify your life!

Some individuals follow their family’s example and work in the same business or head along the same career path as everyone else has for generations. They say, “My father, and his father, and his father’s father all [went in this business direction] so, of course, I will too.” Other individuals follow their bliss. You know this because they cannot stop talking about it. Life is great for them and they can’t see themselves doing anything else. Then, for both sets of individuals (and many like them) life changes. The family business goes under, or there are reductions in force at work, or maybe the bliss has worn off. What do they do now? This is why diversifying your life is essential to your mental and financial well-being.

By “diversifying your life,” I mean having more than one way to earn money. If you enjoy working for a company, that is fine. Make sure you are doing something else besides that. You should be doing at least two, maybe more, things in addition to your company job. Why is this important? Refer to the above example. If you have more than one income avenue, when there are reductions or the business goes under, you will not be in a panic, wondering how you’ll survive. You will have other income options. You will only need to look into ways to fill that gap. A better alternative to complete devastation and wondering how you will survive from week to week. Having other avenues of wealth will give you the time to figure out how to fill that gap. With panic can come rash decisions, and then you feel stuck with the decisions that you made. Having options gives you the opportunity to try things out and then, if you find that that opportunity was a poor fit, you can change without having a big disruption to your income.

Am I saying you need the equivalent of three full time jobs? No! You can set up your wealth avenues however you wish. Just make sure you put some thought into it. Now, let’s figure out which wealth avenues to create…
