Learning to Trust Yourself More!

You may have a difficult time trusting yourself. Don’t despair. You are not alone. It is something that many people experience, and find difficult to overcome. When you lose trust in others, you start to lose trust in yourself.

To help you overcome this problem, you need to focus on key aspects of trust. The first is to have faith in your accomplishments. If you pass off your accomplishments as not being that important, when you need to rely on them, they won’t be there for you. That is sure to interrupt the process of trusting yourself.

You also need to trust your instincts. You won’t always be right, but you will be more often than not. An instinct is something you feel strongly about and does not come only from experiences. They come from something internal that no one can truly explain. It’s part of that inner voice that is telling you what to do. You need only listen. How many times have you said to yourself that you should have listened to your ins…

Setting Realistic Goals

You must be realistic and honest with yourself. If you set goals that you can't possibly reach, you are setting yourself up for failure. You will make yourself frustrated and unhappy. The key here is a realistic and honest assessment of your potential. Although most people will be unnecessarily harsh in their assessments, it is easy to become too hopeful when you start breaking down barriers. If, for instance, you're extremely interested in and fond of music and would love to be a singer, it would be unreasonable to set a singing career as your goal if you can't sing a note (some talents are inborn). But if you are knowledgeable about the music business and would be happy being involved in some other capacity, then it would be reasonable to pursue a career in the business. Be wary of making otherwise perfectly reasonable goals unattainable because of stringent time frames. When you set a goal, you will most likely set times for achieving certain steps along your way to achievi…

Brand New Beginnings – Rebooting Your System to Reinvigorate Your Life

Today we’re talking about Fresh Starts. In this special training, we’ll discover what it means to make a fresh start, why new beginnings are essential, and simple ways to reboot your life.

This training is highly interactive, so go ahead and grab a notebook and a pen, and let’s get started.

Life is full of chapters and phases, and most of us have many of them in the course of a single lifetime. Every one of these chapters has…you guessed it: A beginning, a middle and an end. As one chapter closes out, it often signals the beginning of another. These transition points are golden opportunities to clean up what was, accept what is, and step excitedly into the newness of what will be. After all, as singer Dan Wilson of the band Semisonic said so eloquently:

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

Sometimes the chapters of your life are action packed and full of pizzazz. You’re going, growing, and getting things d…

Home Business or Work-at-Home Job – Which Is Right for You?

Many people often want to work from home for a variety of reasons. Maybe you just had a child and want more work-life balance, or perhaps you have an illness that makes it difficult for you to get out of the house. Or maybe you just like being home and want the freedom to work your own way. Whatever the reasons you want to work at home, you’ll need to choose whether or not you want a job from home, or you want a business from home. Here are eight questions to help you decide. 1. Are You Self-Motivated? If you want your own business so that you can set your own hours, you will need to be very self-motivated. You’ll need to take time out of your day for marketing, interviewing clients, closing the deal and then doing the work too. You’ll be 100 percent responsible for delivering the work, billing and collecting. You’ll even be responsible for deciding the methods you’ll use to do the work. To do that you’ll need to be a very self-motivated individual. 2. What Skills Do You Ha…

11 Small Business Grants All Women Entrepreneurs Should Apply For

All new business owners need as much capital as they can obtain. With female-owned firms accounting for an estimated 11.6 million small businesses in America, that financial need is especially important for female entrepreneurs. 

Statistics show female entrepreneurs are less likely to receive small business funding than their male counterparts and are more likely to receive a shorter-term loan with less capital and significantly higher interest rates.

Fortunately, several lenders, nonprofit organizations, and corporations have acknowledged the unique disadvantages faced by female entrepreneurs and begun to offer grant money to support self-employed women. 

From federal grants to state grants, the experts at ZenBusiness have pulled together 11 grants offered to women-owned startups to help jumpstart their businesses.

Amount available: Between $10,000 and $40,000

Common Work-at-Home Positions You Can Apply For

Working at home sounds like a dream come true to most people. No tromping out in the cold weather, no need for business clothes, and perhaps a way to truly have integration of family life and work without being fired. But, what sorts of positions can you find that you can do at home? Inbound Call Center Agent An inbound call center agent takes calls using their home phone and computer system from the comfort of their home office (or kitchen table), taking orders for products and services. For example, you may work on a project for well-known home shopping networks or food chain establishments. You’ll be trained, and have practice calls before you get started. You will make between $8 and $20 dollars per hour from home doing this. Some positions are independent contracting and some are full-fledged employees. Outbound Call Center Agent An outbound call center agent makes outbound calls to a list of leads given to them by the company they work with. They will try to sell some…
