Is our Business Difficult to do?

Lately, I have heard so many people say how difficult building a business is. "Its hard." "I can't get any opt-ins." "I can't get people to sign up or buy my products." "This just isn't for me." "I didn't  know how difficult it would be."

Well, I am a single Mom of three who, before joining the direct sales family, held down two jobs. I would get up at 4:00 in the morning and not get to bed until midnight most nights, after returning from my part-time retail job, packing lunches, checking homework and relieving my mother, who helped out with the kids.

TAKING A RISK IS OFTEN YOUR FIRST STEP TOWARD SUCCESS


If you don't take some risks, you won't get the chance to succeed.
While you are trying, you are winning.
 
The law of averages is on your side.
The more you try, the greater your chance of succeeding.
Never get discouraged.
 
Every wrong attempt is another step forward.
People that make no mistakes usually don't make anything.
 
Make up your mind not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles,
but to win in spite of a thousand defeats.
 
Your mistakes are stepping stones to success and your installment
payments to victory.
 
You can't be a winner and be afraid to lose.

Our dream was to build a company that would  give people  the opportunity to start their own online gift basket  and flower business without the large investment, headaches and risks.  Dreams do come true!

Never doubt yourself.  You can overcome anything.  All you have to do is  overcome the limits that others have placed in your  heart.  Janis R.

Newsletter  3/8/2010


Spring is in the air and we are super excited about the celebrations that spring time brings .  There also several major holidays just around the corner!

If you want to market to businesses, now is the time to start working on building those relationship.  Businesses are great to obtain. They order frequently and they can generate a great income for you year after year.  :-)

Mia and I  truly admire all of you for building your business.  We are convinced that winning at the game of business takes more than being the smartest or the best educated.  It's an individual's drive and passion that counts. The person who takes action, stays focused on completing the (critical) task, and lives life fully engaged--personally and professionally--is the true success story. The people I'm talking about constantly challenge themselves and go after what they want with zest.
 
To achieve your goals, what you have to do is be strategic, plot your course, and then take action in spite of not knowing all the answers. By committing 100% to your business, engaging in thoughtful, high-level activity every day, and infusing others with a sense of urgency, you will succeed.

Have an amazing week building your business and as always, contact us if you need anything.
