Starting a business/ monetizing your hobby

So many persons have hobbies they enjoy doing at their leisure. It could be playing games, photography, watching television, blogging, basically anything.

But do you know there is great joy in turning your hobby to a money making venture? Won’t that be something? Doing what you love and earning from it!

Lots of people don’t see how this is achievable considering they have other jobs to do. I will give you a very good example with someone whose hobby is taking pictures.

Photography can be of any type, nature/ wildlife shots, snapping people at the park or particular interest pictures. You could simply turn this love you have for capturing moments into a business.

Either as a studio photographer or as a photography blogger. Now to monetize your hobby, there are things you need to think through. Below are a list of things to do when monetizing your photo hobby.

1. Give it a name

! As simple as this may sound. It is very important to give your new business a befitting name. A good catchy name means it will easily stick in your potential customers mind.

You don’t want a name that doesn’t roll of the tongue. For instance, Joe’s amazing photography. Think something short and punchy like Joe’s shots/ Joe’s photos. A catchy name is very vital when starting a new business.RESIDUAL INCOME/PASSIVE INCOME

2. Do your research:

This is probably the first thing you should do as it is very vast. You’re going to make research for several things. You have to check and confirm if the name of the business is already taken.

You have to research the business itself, how rampant it is in the area you want to start it. Do people in the area appreciate the services you are going to offer.

You have to research potential competitors as well. Check how successful they are, how they go about their business, how do they operate.

Proper research is very vital any how you look at it, wether you do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you. Make sure you do a very in-depth market research before you start any business.

3. Working tools

Tools and equipments are very important in any business. You don’t start a welding business without a protective welding glass. What materials do you need to start the business?

Make sure the things you need are ready. Check for the ones that are most important to start the business and buy them if you don’t have them already.

If it is the photography business you want to start, then you will need a camera, a good one of course, you may or may not need a stand, a camera stand, etc.NEED INCOME NOW — THEN CLICK NOW

4. Registration and license

Off course you don’t just select a business and start without proper registration and license. It is important to go to the nearest licensing agency in your area and get registered.

Once you’re licensed, secure your license and keep it safe. It shouldn’t take more than a week to get licensed in any field of choice.

Five Stumbling Blocks To Successful Networking And How To Overcome Them

Overcome these five stumbling blocks to successful networking and supercharge your career and your business.

business, network, networking, connect, connecting, icebreakers, conversation, relationships, manners, etiquette

The ability to connect with people is essential to success in any business.

Professional networking events present opportunities to interact with others on a personal level and to develop profitable relationships.

These occasions are critical for anyone who wants to grow a business or promote a career.

Many people are simply not comfortable walking into a room full of strangers and striking up conversations. Here are five common stumbling blocks that you may face and tips to help you overcome them.

A RELUCTANCE TO TALK TO STRANGERS. You were taught at an early age not to speak to people you don’t know. It’s not safe.

In certain situations today this is still good advice. In business, however, talking to strangers is a way to generate interest and support for your products and services.

If you only talk to the people you already know, you will miss out on opportunities to make new connections and establish valuable contacts.

To get past your discomfort in talking to strangers, set a goal for yourself before you attend any networking event.

Decide how many new contacts you want to make or how many strangers you want to meet. In some cases, you may specifically target individuals whom you’d like to know.

Next come up with some icebreakers or conversation starters. Have questions prepared that you can ask anyone you meet at the event.

You may want to inquire about other people’s business, their connection to the sponsoring organization or their opinion of the venue.

LACK OF A FORMAL INTRODUCTION.

It’s much easier to make a new contact when there is someone else to handle the introduction and pave the way. If you wait for another person to make the move you may not meet anyone.

At networking events, the goal is to meet as many people as possible.

This is the time to take the bull by the horns, walk up to people you don’t know, introduce yourself and start a conversation. You can do this if you have prepared your self-introduction in advance.

You will not introduce yourself the same way on every occasion. Perhaps it is your first time to attend an association meeting.

In that case, you might want to say that as part of your introduction. Let people know who you are, why you are there and give them a reason to ask more abut you.

FEAR OF BEING SEEN AS PUSHY. You may think that you will turn people off if you are assertive and that if they want to talk to you, they will make the first move.

If this is your line of thinking you will find yourself spending your time alone at the reception or meeting function and leaving without a single new connection.

Being open, friendly and interested does not turn people off.

You will not come across as overly aggressive if you seek out the “approachable” people. These are the ones who are standing alone or who are speaking in groups of three or more.

people talking to each other are not approachable because they may be having a private conversation and you would be interrupting.

THINKING THAT OTHER PEOPLE MAY NOT LIKE YOU. There is always the risk that the other person is not interested in you and doesn’t want to meet or talk to you.

t happens. If that is the case, don’t take it personally. Nothing ventured is nothing gained. When you get a cold shoulder, smile, move on and say to yourself, “Next?”

HAVING YOUR INTENTIONS MISUNDERSTOOD. Approaching someone of the opposite sex to begin a conversation may seem more like flirting than networking.

This is more of an issue for women than men. Women have an equal place in the work arena and need to make professional connections the same as men do. Women in business can no longer afford to hold back when there is opportunity at hand.

Neither men nor women will have their motives misinterpreted if they present themselves professionally in their attire and if they keep the conversation focused on business issues or topics that are not personal or private.

Whatever your stumbling blocks, face them before the next networking event and devise a personal plan for getting past them.

Once you do, you will find yourself connecting with confidence and courtesy on every occasion and the results will be reflected in your bottom line.

7 STEPS TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM —-7 STEPS TO A SIX DIGIT INCOME

A JOURNEY TO FINANCIAL FREEDOOM$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

From time immemorial, people who rely on single source of income always find it difficult to pay their bills.

In fact, even if you work for a top notch company that pays you a six digit salary in US dollars, it is still very risky to depend solely on a single source of income.

We live in a world where most people are working and earning salary, yet living in poverty.

The reason for this is that most times, their expenses tend to outweigh the salary they receive, thus the need for a residual income.

Have you ever imagined what differentiate the rich from the poor? I mean what makes the rich becomes richer and poor becomes poorer?

It is not about being proactive at work or working in a multinational corporation, but having an investment that gives you a residual income.

Residual income as used in this context refers to income that keeps coming after a work is done.

To put it differently, residual income usually comes from building asset that continues to pay you even after the work is done.

For instance, the likes of Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Oprah etc, weren’t born rich. However, these people became rich over time because they understand and took advantage of residual income.

Residual income could be in form of royalties from books, songs, movies, income from real estate etc.

For example, Bill Gates is still making residual income from Microsoft even though he is no longer there.
Earning an additional income is what every salary earner should work towards. Continue reading “7 STEPS TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM —-7 STEPS TO A SIX DIGIT INCOME”

Profit Shouldn’t Be a Dirty Word — BUT EXCESSIVE DEBT IS A PROBLEM

With the economy sliding into a recession that will be worse than 2008, a lot of people in the material handling industry are expecting good times without having to make any changes in the way they do business.

Unfortunately, that means the continuation of one particular practice that played a major role in getting the economy in trouble a few years back.

Unfortunately, that means the continuation of one particular practice that played a major role in getting the economy in trouble a few years back.

When the “dot.coms” were flying high, they experienced rapid growth by the simple method of offering impossibly low prices and constant expansion into markets about which they knew nothing.

They operated at a loss for years on end, promising investors that it would all turn around when they had achieved sufficient market share.

Eventually, of course, this “lose a little on each deal but make it up in volume” business model blew up in their faces. The balloons popped, one by one, and the economy followed them down the tube.

In the material handling industry, this discredited business model is still very much in evidence. Too many companies have played the merger game, getting themselves involved in markets that they know nothing about.FREE BUSINESS INFORMATION — CLICK NOW

Too many have played the numbers game, moving money from one pocket to another to make themselves look good for one more quarter (this is called managing for stockholder value), totally forgetting about long-range planning.
