5 Ways To Generate Multiple Income Streams

Multiple Income Streams

5 Ways To Generate Multiple Income Streams

Most likely you have heard the saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket“. This is truly a sensible saying that can relate to many aspects of your life. Let’s primarily focus on generating Multiple Income Streams.

It’s hard to rely on a 9-5 job for your entire livelihood with layoffs and pay cuts always right around the corner. With multiple streams of income, on the other hand, you can avoid putting all your eggs in one basket – and use multiple streams of income to grow rich.

[bctt tweet=” Simply put, Multiple Income Streams equals more security!” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

I am an Online Internet Marketer and can honestly tell you horrible experiences with Network and Affiliate Companies that either were shutdown or did not offer support and training to help you grow a business. You must have the determination and a positive mindset to grow and build your business. There ARE great companies with great products that can help you build a brighter financial future.

Learn More about Online Business Education and Multiple Income Streams: CLICK HERE

After years of experience, and yes, failures that taught me lessons, I was able to find the perfect match of Multiple Income Streams to exceed the income from my traditional 9-5 job.

Here are some Strategies You Must Consider:

1. Brand Yourself!

So what exactly does that mean? Imagine you are driving down the street and see in the distance golden arches. Now most of us know that stands for McDonald’s fast-food restaurant. Those golden arches represent their Brand and are easily recognized worldwide.

So to build your Brand online would mean a photo, logo or image of YOU. Learn more about Branding You in my recent blog post, How to Create Your Personal Brand.

2. Offer a service or sell something

The plain truth is simply started by selling other people’s products through affiliate or network marketing. This is the fastest way to generate an income stream without having to reinvent the wheel. Let’s face it, more and more people are turning to buying online every day.

Let me ask you a simple question? What hobby do you have a passion for? Maybe photography, gardening or financial planning. You can start your online business by sharing your passion, selling your service or products.

Virtual Business education is exploding in the online marketplace. You and many other online business owners simply can’t afford to not have in your arsenal to find success. Learn More on Business Education, Click Here.

3. Invest, Learn and Teach

Invest in yourself by learning best business practices in the online arena. Learn the proper way to use social media outlets and master them one at a time. Share and Teach others through social media to gain leverage and become a credible authority.

The plain truth is, this may sound too hard or overwhelming. And honestly, I will tell you it can be at times. You will learn early on the importance of mindset and setting goals. If you are serious and determined, stick to your goals and your future will change by keeping your eye on that end result.

4. Work With A Coach or Mentor

Working with a Coach or Mentor you get the facts, the cold hard facts. The advantage of their experience of what works and what doesn’t is invaluable. But that is not to say just because it did not work for them it won’t work for you. The time, online environment and individual personalities could make a difference. Remember, YOU are Branding YOU and seeking the experience of someone that is seeing success.

5. Join Social Media Groups

By joining groups you can easily interact with like-minded people. You can share what you have learned and resulted in success. Many top earners are open to sharing and answering questions you may be struggling with. It’s a great place to learn about Multiple Income Streams that may interest you.

Conclusion:

Setting yourself up with Multiple Income Streams can be a saving grace in the event an affiliate or network marketing experiences problems. This can ensure you continually have a steady stream of monthly income to support your family and financial obligations.

There are even essential resources that most marketers find vital to keep their business growing that you can sign up to become an affiliate for free. The commissions may be small but can also add up over time. Here are a few resources you may want to consider:

  • Canva – Professional Image Design
  • Aweber – Email Autoresponder
  • Amazon – Refer a Book and earn a commission
  • Clickfunnels – Create Landing Pages
  • And so Many More

5 Tips For Personal Branding and Marketing

5 Tips For Personal Branding and Marketing

Personal Branding

Do you still battle with getting a laser targeted audience of prospects? You feel you have taken action exactly the way you were told to by your upline. However, you still are not seeing results from your hard work.

I know your pain! I experienced it also. And most marketers have been in the same situation.

There is a solution that can turn things around for you. Personal Branding can make a life-changing difference.

You probably have heard the word “branding” many times if you have been in the marketing industry for some time. It’s become one of the most common subjects in entrepreneurship — and for good reason.

Personal branding is the practice of people marketing themselves and their company as the brand. While previous self-help management techniques were about self-improvement, the personal branding concept suggests instead that success comes from self-packaging.

Think about some of the biggest brands’ public images. McDonald’s, for instance, has built a brand around fast-food convenience, variety of products, quality ingredients and kid-friendly enticing consumers who live a busy lifestyle.

You’ll see examples of those branding factors and everything that McDonald’s, from roadside signage and on television to its social media profiles.

That’s exactly the approach you need to take when creating a personal brand. You might not have roadside signage or run television commercials, but you have to think about how your personal brand is represented when you communicate with your audience online.

Are you getting a clearer picture of how Branding you can help you become a credible authority in your online Presence?

5 Tips to get started:

  • Marketing YOU rather than the company you sell products or services for is in your best interest. Establishing YOU as a Brand helps you become a credible authority. Do you have a vision of who YOU want to be?
  • You must have a daily presence to become an authority that people will follow and look forward to your posts, podcasts, videos, etc. Having a daily routine provides a leveraged connection with your followers.
  • Your biggest obstacle is mindset. Never be in the place where you are convinced you have made it. There is always more to come.
  • Next, celebrate your wins! You don’t have to be an expert, just be the Best YOU.
  • Personal Branding allows YOU to be unique and stand out by taking one idea take makes you different. Add some humor in your posts. Be clear and concise and keep it simple. You will surely dominate.

So how do you get started?

Check out this blog post to help you get started from scratch. By building your Personal Brand, your audience can get to know you, not the company you represent. Most people would rather buy from people that they know, like and trust.

It’s also important to share the benefits of your products or service without mentioning the company name. Plant a seed of curiosity in your prospects mind. This will likely have them reach out to you to find out what you have to offer. Bang, open door!

Become an Instant Authority!

So now that you have your Personal Brand all set up you are ready to become an Instant Authority! By using the Instant Authority Method.

This SIMPLE method will make you become an expert in the eyes of your prospects.

If you’re the type of person who is ready to position yourself as the authority, become the leader in your niche, anchor YOU as the expert, start getting paid what you’re worth, and you’re excited to build your dream business with unlimited leads coming to you, then ‘Instant Authority Method’ was made for you, and your time is NOW!

10 Simple Ways to Live by for a Successful And Fulfilling Life

10 Simple Ways to Live by for a Successful And Fulfilling Life!

Successful And Fulfilling Life

Can you relate do this image? Exhausted from a full day. Are you looking for a Successful And Fulfilling Life?

You are in the right place. Join me at CTFO! 

Read On….you will see why!

Do you often feel your day-to-day life is full of stress and chaos?

Are you scrambling to find a peaceful moment in the day when you can put your feet up and relax? Are you rushed, stressed out and ready to call it quits? You just can’t find your way to a Successful And Fulfilling Life.

Why is that so? Who is responsible for it? Why have we made it so difficult?

No worries, you are not alone. In today’s world many people feel the very same way. Almost as if we forgot how to relax. I used to feel like this so I perfectly understand.

The solution is simple: simplify your life.

It’s the implementation part that is hard, but here are the ways to live by to for a Successful And Fulfilling Life!

Here is help with that:

1. Believe in yourself , but be aware of your limitations

The first step to accomplishing all your goals and making your dreams come true starts with this simple realisation that you are human:

You are not perfect and you can’t do everything alone.

Always keep things realistic. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself that you find it hard to move; trust yourself to deliver what you need to, but also be prepared to cut yourself some slack.

Own up when you make a mistake. Set goals, and enjoy the journey.

2. De-clutter and simplify

You have a thousand different things screaming for attention:

You have  the never-ending household chores waiting. Then there’s planning dinner for the family. You have to organize your calendar and make room for more appointments; make time to socialise; help the kids with homework; and make a gazillion runs around town.

Don’t even get started on what needs to be done to build and grow your business.

Let’s get one thing straight—you cannot accomplish anything unless you get yourself some of the clarity that comes from creating space in your life, in your relationships and your environment.

You need to reduce, cut back, simplify—Only then will you stop the feeling of being overwhelmed and rushed.

Get organized. Plan your day the night before and try hard to stick to the plan.

[bctt tweet=”“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t—you’re right.” ― Henry Ford” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

3. Keep things in perspective

I admit there will be times when nothing will go your way, and you will find yourself fighting battles, fixing problems and minimizing damage all day long.

We all have those days, and it is too easy to get caught up in the drama. Get a handle on things: this, too, shall pass.

Your child will get better soon, the noisy neighbourhood parties will end, your client that constantly has questions and wants you to hold their hand will finally hold themselves accountable (we can hope, can’t we?), and there will be actual days where you tick off all the items on your to-do list.

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Have an open mind.

4. Treat others how they want to be treated

You might end up getting in trouble if you try treating others how you want to be treated, instead of how they would like you to treat them.

For instance, if you are not a phone person, you might not call your friend because you assume that they feel the same way you do, which may not be the case. Model their behavior until you establish a means of friendly communication.

Try to be sensitive to the needs of others, and occasionally going out of your way to do something for them.

Try not to judge. Be generous; try to do something nice for somebody on a regular basis.

5. Pay attention to the moment

Stop thinking about what happened in the past, or worry about what might happen in the future.

Live in the moment and learn to accept and appreciate each one.

6. Have a positive mindset (this is so important)

You are what you think all day long. No matter what is going on in your personal life, always project a positive attitude and wear a smile.

If you have nothing but negative thoughts racing through your head, then that’s what you are going to get, so try shifting to a more positive outlook on life.

You will be surprised to see that whatever you wished for will start to manifest itself around you.

[bctt tweet=”“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” — Og Mandino” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

7. Educate yourself

The most interesting people are the ones who take an interest in life and never let go of the “beginner’s mind”. They discover learning opportunities and continue to grow, both personally and professionally.

Be a life-long learner. You don’t have to get old to become wise.

Read good books. Try to learn something new every day. Take courses in subjects you enjoy.

8. Remember things that you are grateful for

Try this exercise:

Whenever you are feeling low, make a list of all the things that make you happy, joyous, and grateful.

A beautiful family, adoring kids, kind friends, health, happy home, a job that pays the bills, surprise dinner prepared by a loving spouse, a blog, favorite books and keepsakes, unexpected twenty dollar bill in your jeans pocket.

Everything counts.

After you’ve done this, consider what has happened to the feelings of doom and gloom.

It is impossible not to be cheered up after remembering all the fantastic things you have in your life.

Be grateful, and always make room for more happiness.

9. You can have it all, just not at the same time

There is no greater truth than this:

You cannot have everything at the same time. You have only 24 hours in a day and need to take care of your relationships, work and spirit.

On any given day, the focus will shift. Some days your personal life may disrupt the plans you laid out for the day.

Sometimes you just need to chill with your friends because it has been ages since you last took a break.

You don’t have to do everything all at once, and life doesn’t have to be complicated.

Simple living is mindful living.

10. Take Time For You Living Healthy

Find time for you to relax doing things you enjoy. Maybe a walk in the park or along the beach. Perhaps a nice bubble bath or reading a book in the garden or poolside.

Making changes to your diet and home environment has proven to lead many to a Successful And Fulfilling Life. I recently was introduced to chemical free living which totally change my outlook on life by using products from CTFO. Products from Skin care, anti aging and stress relief have tremendously made an improvement to my life and can help you also.

Changing The Future Outcome (CTFO) is committed to having the highest quality, lowest priced products on the market. And just as importantly, we vow to always provide the fairest, most lucrative, most unique and powerful business opportunity ever created.

Successful and Fulfilled Life

Conclusion

In today’s fast paced world it is easy to lose focus on finding success and happiness in your life. Following these simple steps can help you achieve the goals you so badly want and deserve. If you find yourself caught up in a life is full of stress and chaos, just stop and give these 10 simple ways a chance. You may be surprised with the results.

What Do You Think About Time Versus Money?

What are your thoughts about Time Versus Money? What is more important to you in your life?

Think back to your earliest memories, and you’ll probably remember your parents rushing off to work in the morning to trade their time for money. All our lives, we’re told to get an education, get a degree, get a job, and work for 35 years until retirement. We’re brainwashed into thinking that the only way to make more money is to “put in more hours.” This is false. Do You want to learn how to re-evaluate your time and make more money by working smarter (not harder)?

[bctt tweet=”Time Vs. Money, What is more important to YOU?” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Our education system was developed over 100 years ago to train students to become dependable factory workers, who would show up on time, perform routine tasks, and not question their superiors. If you haven’t noticed, we’re in a new age (the Technology Age). With Technology on our side the possibilities of Time Versus Money is very different. time versus money

So let me elaborate a bit. As an employee for years, your mindset is to follow the leader, obey the company rules and perform tasks exactly as your employer has laid out. Trying (and failing) may lead to “learned helplessness.” You may begin to doubt yourself and assume nothing you do is going to work.

Once you’ve identified it, you can beat it. You can learn motivational techniques to stay positive when things don’t go right, and how to avoid negative, self-defeating cycles of thought.

Don’t get me wrong. It is not your fault. We all grew up with this employee mindset. That’s all we knew from the example of our parents, who learned it from their parents.

In this age of technology many opportunities are open to you to change this course of “Learned Helplessness”. By moving yourself from an employee mindset to a business owner mindset. So again,  what is more important to you, Time or Money. Becoming an online business owner, being your own boss, managing your own time and earning the money at the rate of pay you chose, is a life changer.

Right now, you’re at a crossroads.

You have two possible paths you can take.

If you take the path on the left (and ignore this), then chances are you will fail like the majority of small business owners.

Or … you can start down the most exhilarating and rewarding path of your life, a path that will give you personal and financial freedom.

The right path will take you on a journey up each rung of the business ladder, by taking a look at this opportunity.

This journey will not be easy, but it will be rewarding.

You will grow as a person, and you will generate enough income to live life by your own rules. You will build a strong business, scale it, and be set up financially for the rest of your life.

You must go into business KNOWING you’re going to succeed, and have that knowledge permeate everything you do (how you spend your time, how you make decisions, who you hang out with, etc.). If you don’t have this mindset, then you will be derailed at the first few inevitable challenges.

How a Paradigm Shift Can Make Results Happen in Your Business!

Curious, How a Paradigm Shift Can Make Results Happen in Your Business? First of All, what is a Paradigm Shift? I was curious also when I first heard this, so I did some research. I found several great books and videos that explained this very well. Paradigm

First, exactly what does Paradigm Shift mean? It is defined as a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions. It is the way our mind has been designed from birth. At birth and throughout your life your way of thinking and processing thoughts are developed from generations of your family, then through the educational system.

We all have heard of your conscious mind versus your sub conscious mind. In this video I share with you Bob Proctor talks in depth about paradigm shifts, what they are, and how they can affect you. As you watch the video, consider how this information can make a difference in your business. Without making a change in your life, change will not occur.

[bctt tweet=”Results Always Tell The Truth” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

This mind shift can make a huge difference in making results happen in your business. Opening up your mind and making this shift in thinking will give you the ability to Think Big in your business. This really resonated with me and has made a big difference. If your results are not what you are expecting take a look at this 28 minute video and decide for your self. Enjoy.

Starting Your New Business

Deciding to start your own new business can sometimes feel like a roller-coaster; overwhelming and scary at times, Born to Winbut for the most part, exhilarating. I suggest buckling up, screaming when it’s appropriate, and throwing your hands in the air. It’s an exciting adventure! Here are a few more steps to help make your business start-up a successful experience.

Get Inspired

No matter if you are selling products or services, all businesses have one thing in common: they start from an idea. You may have dreamed of starting your own business for years, or inspiration may have hit you unexpectedly. Regardless of the source, the first step of starting your own business is coming up with a business idea. What will your Brand be? Yourself? I recommend Branding Yourself, with a Tagline that briefly describes your product, service or dedication to your customers.

Mindset for Your Success

Mindset is so important when first getting started in your new business. You may stumble and fail at some things along the way so with the proper mindset and positive thinking you will be able to go back to the drawing table and tweak a few things to experiment what works best. Failure at anything is learning how to do it right the next time. Here is an excellent resource that can help getting in the right mindset. https://gv964.isrefer.com/go/tpms/livesmart56/

Do Your Research

You’ve identified your big idea, now it’s time to balance it with a little reality. The research you conduct in your small business start-up process will help you figure out if your business idea has potential.

In order for a small business to be successful, it must solve a problem, fulfill a need or offer something the market wants. Some of the questions you should answer in your market research include:

  • Is there a need for your anticipated products/services?
  • Who needs it? Identify your target market.
  • Are there other companies offering similar products/services now?
  • What is the competition like?
  • How will your business fit into the market?

Make a Plan

In order to make your business idea a reality, you need a plan. If you intend to seek financial support from an investor or financial institution, a formal written business plan is a must. Even if you don’t plan to seek financial support, a business plan will help give you clarity about what you want to do and how you plan to do it.

Your business plan should outline business goals and the motivation behind them, as well as your plan for reaching your goals in terms of marketing and funding. In your business plan, you should think relatively long-term – what is your intent?

Plan Your Marketing Budget

Starting a small business doesn’t have to require a lot of money, but it will involve some initial investment. Determine how much to budget for training on how to market your business. This should be an annual budget to continue your training in the online and offline strategies. Here are some areas you may need training and links to the best training to ensure your success include:

You can also attempt to get your business off the ground by bootstrapping, using as little capital as necessary to start your business.

Pick and Register Your Business Name

The name of your business plays a big role in almost every aspect of your business, so pick a good one (no pressure!). Make sure you think of all the potential implications as you explore your options. I suggest thinking long and hard about your business name and making sure it makes sense phonetically.

My Personal Story

Today I will share my personal story of how I am able to work from home care-giving for my mom that has dementia. Mom was diagnosed with dementia about 4 years ago, although the family began seeing signs and changes in her as far back as 2009. She gradually progressed as traumatic situations occurred. Since we lost my father in March 2016, the progression has accelerated very quickly. She is no longer able to be left living alone and removing her from the home she and my dad shared for 62 years of marriage is just not an option. So I work at home online and have been able to schedule at least 4 hours a day on a home business that generates residual income and helps me maintain my home and cover expenses. Between myself and my brother we rotate a few weeks on and a few weeks off and are committed to keeping mom at home where all the family memories are.
