Entrepreneur Academy Lesson 3 – Wha tis purpose?

Entrepreneur Lesson 3 — Are you on purpose and what then heck does that mean?

Too often when we talk about purpose and passion entpreneurs talk about their purpose and their passion. I think that is partially off target. If you want to create entpreneurial success you have got to realize that you business must overlap the passion and purposes of your clients. In fact, that may actually be more important. In other words, being on purpose literally includes having a purpose that others can find valuable.

Recently I was meeting with one of my mentors and peers over lunch. He worth several hundred million dollars (500+) and one of his enterprises is that he owns a public storgage facility. When I asked him about building a business in area that he is passionate about he confessed that sometimes purpose and functionality far exceeds passion. And as we talked about the idea of purpose he expressed that so much of his business success is based on serving the purposes of his customers. Now let’s be honest. Public storage is most likely not listed among your most signifcant purposes — so that raises a question as to what is a true purpose that people are willing to pay for?

Obvioulsy ou’ve already heard how you need to solve a problem for your client. The purpose will be attached to a problem. But I think most people are not truly aware of their problems or their purpose.

Can I make a suggestion that was made to me and has been a source of high profit? Too many entpreneurs look for big purpose and dramatic ways to met those desires. As a result they often miss the mark. Start simple. Look at an actually day and what you do in that day. What are the more basic problems that need solving — find that and you will find a valuable purpose that the masses will pay for. The main purpose for most people is simply to have an easier day. Don’t make it complex. Make it practical and straigth forward.

As I have interviewed and research more than 400 of the worlds top achievers that how the majority of them built their wealth.

How to get to high levels of success – Personal Power Mastery minute by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

High levels of success require the support of a team. But a team requires the vision of a committed and dedicated leader. The idea that a solopreneur can create massive success by themselves is incorrect. It has never happened on a major scale. In order to reach higher, further and do it faster you will need the expertise, effort and insights of others. You can’t possibly do it alone. So the question is how will you find and inspire those people to get behind your vision? The answer get committed to one. #douglasvermeeren #personalpowermastery #ppm #success #enterpreneurship #commitment #goalsetting

Why do most entrepreneurs fail? Personal Power Mastery minute – Douglas Vermeeren

Most people can come up with great ideas and are extremely creative. I am one of those people and I see others like me everywhere I go. Until I learned that the rewards are in being bold, taking action and then finishing the job (or hiring others to help you finish the job) you will never create massive success. What can you do today to start, keep going and finish at a level of competence? That’s where the real rewards are!!! #personalpowermastery #douglasvermeeren #ppmDouglas Vermeeren Personal Power Mastery 177

Waking up just 30 minutes earlier gives you an edge – Personal Power Mastery minute

leave a comment »

Douglas Vermeeren - Personal Power MAstery 158As I studied the daily patterns of the most successful people in the world I wasn’t surprised to find this one. Are you getting started early in the day or do you like to sleep in as long as possible? Or maybe you just like a few extra minutes…Maybe its time for a shift? #personalpowermastery #PPM #douglasvermeeren #EARLYSTART

How you start the day often determines the kind of day you will have. Too often average people look for how they can hold back and relax. They assume that a few extra minutes in bed will make their day more relaxed and less stress. The opposite is actually true. By holding back and staying in bed a little longer you actually are creating more stress as it now becomes necessary to spend the day catching up.

You’ll find even waking up an extra 30 minutes earlier will give you the advantage of sorting out your day and getting things off on the right foot. Start in control and you’ll find you stay in control.

30 minutes may not seem like much but in the overall scheme of things it is often just enough to allow you to take control of your morning rather than have you respond and rush to take care of everything that you need to do.

There’s an old saying that successful people do that which is hard first, so they can do that which is difficult later. Broke and broken people take the easy route first and in the end get stuck with everything that is hard.

Make a choice now that you get the days tougher things behind you first. And for some the toughest is simply to roll out of bed and get started.

One final observation: Momentum is a key factor to getting out of bed. Like everyone else I know it can be hard to wake up. (Especially when I’m teaching a seminar in a location that has a different time zone than my own. My UK seminars start at 9am their time – 2 am my time. That means my day often starts at midnight when I am over there. It’s not always easy to get out of bed at that hour. Especially when you throw in the airplanes trips and the rest.) However the one thing I have learned is that the key is momentum. Create it before you feel like. Get moving and you will start moving.

When you get started early you’ll find that you will have plenty of time for rest later. And there is a peace that comes from knowing that the hard stuff is behind you.

Wishing you success,

Doug

How are you creating your life? Personal Power Mastery – Douglas Vermeeren

How are you creating your life?
Personal Power Mastery Moment By Douglas Vermeeren

Douglas Vermeeren - Personal Power Mastery- Success quote 119

You’ve heard the idea that people spend more time planning their summer vacations than they do planning for their life. It might sound like a funny idea if it weren’t closer to the truth than most people realize. The majority of people who even claim to be in charge of their lives still don’t take time to regularly plan and evaluate their lives. Their planning is most often sporadic and only spurred on by either outside events that force them to revaluate or a high inspiring moment that reminds them of what they are capable of.

If you are going to make powerful strides towards creating the success you want in your life a careful examination of your life and your activities in relationship to your goals must e a regular activity.

As I meet, interviewed and spend time with some of the worlds top achievers I was was quite surprised to see that each of them spend much careful time in meditation, pondering and careful thought about their present and future. (They didn’t waste a lot of time worrying about the past except to repeat successes or quickly learn from a mistake) Their time was also not spent wishing or wondering what they could do. It was actually productive thinking about why some thing would be important, how they might accomplish it and who they could reach out to for help.

It is important to point out that many of the gurus today encourage their supporters to learn to think big. While that is important I have found that often those who created lives of challenge, poverty and difficulty often tries to be big thinkers too. Big thinking alone doesn’t do it. The thinking that follows must be entered around execution and support for that execution.

One of the thoughts I often share in Personal Power Mastery is the concept you’ve heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I want to share that room to heaven is to. The only difference between the people on the two roads is that those who make it to the better places tend to add execution to the their good intentions.

Over the year I have observed that that there are some additional steps required to bring what you think about into reality. Here’s the first consideration:

If you only think it you probably won’t do it.

If you plan it you might do it. Or do it for a while.

If you schedule it you will get it done.

If you want to actually shift your ideas from thoughts to reality in the real world the first thing you need to do is start scheduling when you will take action on what you have thought about.

The second consideration:
Why do people procrastinate? The answers are simple and there are two of them. Firstly, the task that they need to accomplish aren’t in line with their highest values. When people don’t have activities that are in line with what they value most they aren’t interested to do them. And secondly they need momentum. Often people procrastinate because the aren’t really sure what to do next. Build a schedule (interesting this is connected to the idea above) and start developing a pattern of habits so you know what needs to be done next. If you know what’s next you don’t have to procrastinate trying to figure it out.

Thirdly, Seek out support and accountability partners. When you have others helping you they can’t help you stay focused and even provide support for achieving your successes.

My challenge to you today is to spend some time in planning your life. Set aside a regular time to do this often. Keep a journal for it and be sure to translate your plans from thinking to a schedule. Get to work in really time to start making things happen and get some support.

Why does Business Networker charge a fee to have a profile?

Why does Business Networker charge a fee to have a profile?

One of the most frequently asked questions that can be heard is why does Business Networker charge a fee when so many other social networking sites are free. The answer is simple when you look at all the other social networking sites and compare it with the mission of our members. Our members are entrepreneurs, business owners, business leaders and others that have a different goal in connecting with each other. The goal of our members is to expand their business, make meaningful connections and ultimately make some money.

It doesn’t take a visitor long to see that the free sites that are currently in the marketplace attract many who are not conducting business. You will find everything from postings about their kitty-kat, what they had for lunch and even dating advice. These time wasting activities do not fit for our format.

By requiring our members to qualify themselves with a membership dues we have discovered that people do not waste their time or others time when they are on Business Networker. Don’t get me wrong they enjoy their time with us and also post things that are fun and interesting – but they are not looking to waste anyones time.

Network with powerful business owners

Network with powerful business owners

Business Networker could be compared to a chamber of commerce or an exclusive club where members are held to a higher standard of connection. With a higher standard and quality of connection a higher standard and quality of business automatically is created. If you are serious about making deeper more valuable connections and growing your business you can’t afford to not be connected on Business Networker.

Here are two additional reason that most people don’t know about that share why we charge:

1) Business Networker is very different than most social networking sites that ask you to invite your friends to join. Business Networker actually pays a cash referral bonus to members who refer their friends. That is correct you can become a Business Networker affiliate or reseller. For each person that you refer to Business Networker you are paid $30 per premium membership and $9 per Basic membership. No one organization has this opportunity for it’s members.

2) The Business Networker Advertising grant program. Each year Business Networker makes available several thousand dollars in ad grant money to partner with our business members in advertising in the real world. Some of the kinds of advertising we help our members with include television advertising,radio, trade show, magazine, newspaper and special event sponsorships. For more information on how you can apply for this program go to http://www.BusinessNetworker.com We are the only social networking site in the world that partners with its members in this way. You can actually get paid when you share our logo.

3) Business Networker gives back to the communities we serve. Business Networker makes donations to a variety of worthy causes int he community based on the contributions of its members. Many of the causes we support are suggested by our members and are those that we hope can facilitate strong social change for the positive.
