The Game of Entrepreneurship

I’ve come to realize this entrepreneurship thing is not easy. I don’t know what I was thinking when I jumped into this game, like I was going to be great at it in my rookie season. But, how often are there great rookies?  You have prodigies that come in the league that are just heads and shoulders above everybody else, but most of the time, rookies suck! For example, Tom Brady is an 18-year NFL veteran who plays for the New England Patriots, now 6-time Super Bowl winner. Brady went up against Pat…

Sales 101: What is a prospect?

If you said “small businesses” are your prospects… you are wrong. If you said “everyone” is your prospect, you are very, extremely, outrageously wrong. “But Jason, we have a product we sell to small business owners. How can I be wrong?” The truth is, while we wish EVERYONE could be a prospect, sales is a numbers game. So, if you are out and about looking for leads the old fashioned way, you need to clearly separate who are your leads and who are prospects. A lead is a person you…

Can you be your own boss?

PICTURE OF A QUESTION MARK

“Be your own boss” is the clarion call from big name entrepreneurs, motivators, and life coaches. It is a call to action that leaves a lot of people tongue tied, speechless, and even springs some to action. A lot of people stay rooted in their spot in the face of this call to action, because they find it difficult to imagine another way of earning other than the ones they are used to. Some take the advice of life coaches and quit their jobs, make an attempt to make it…

Starting Entrepreneurship with No Fear

Why does fear stop most entrepreneurs? How does one overcome fear? Why does the fear that you make up in your own head stop you? The truth is, you must cut off fear to become a true entrepreneur. Fears started racing in my mind the second my husband brought our business opportunities to me. I instantly thought, “Oh Great, who talked him into something this time?” I came in with odd thoughts and no future mindset. He was there mentally, wanting to become an entrepreneur, but was stuck because I…

Big Dreams < Massive Action

If I asked a room full of people if they wanted to be slim and fit, how many people do you think would raise their hands? If I asked a room full of people if they wanted to co-star in a blockbuster movie with their favorite actor/actress, how many do you think would raise their hands? If I asked the same room of people if they wanted a million dollars of income a year, how many would raise their hands? In all of those situations, I would be willing to…

Sales 101: Getting them to buy from you.

The biggest issue I see with sales people is the sheer fact that they are trying to sell their products or services. Relentlessly at that. Day in, day out… taking a list of leads, and turning them into a list of duds, hangups, and countless times, being sent to voicemail. Why are they doing this? Don’t they realize it won’t work? Well, when someone is calling you to sell you something without having any real interest in you as a person, how do you normally respond? I would be willing…

How to scale.

Everyone wants to grow their business, but there is a four letter word that always gets in the way, and that word is LIFE. Life is what happens regardless of the size of your business. Life is those 50 things you do on a daily basis to keep things status quo. They range from taking care of kids, to walking the dog. Getting in a morning run, to showering before laundry takes all the hot water away. So, if someone wants to grow their business, how can they expect to…

Dream It. Own It. Live It. Fulfill It.

Hi! I’m Se’Kiara (See-Kara), and I would like to tell you a little about my reasoning of wanting to be an Entrepreneur, and how I started my journey.   Since I was ten, I’ve always had a clear vision that I didn’t want to work for anyone else. I started planning out my life at a young age because I saw how little time my parents got to spend with my brother and I, simply because they worked all the time… and still didn’t bring in enough money to cover…

How I Defer From My Distractions

My day to day work changes constantly, being a stay at home Mom/Boss/Entrepreneur.  I think we all have interference in the way of life, but who really sits back and is like okay, “Hold up God, how do I change the direction this ended up turning?”   I used to not see it coming until my husband and I started changing our views on the world. We looked at our lives and prayed for change. Change started showing up, so I kept my focus on those better things in my day. …

Is online marketing for real?

Less than one short year ago, my daughter and son-in-law started talking about “Affiliate Marketing.”  Was this the same as “Online Marketing?” No clue. I myself had no idea, but as I started researching this online “thing,” all I knew, is that there seemed to be a whole different world “online” that I never knew existed. Even though my generation (not 50 yet, but close) works on computers, no one I worked with, and none of my immediate family members would ever believe you can make money online… and I wasn’t…
