    Imagine that you have just entered your favorite coffee shop. You can already smell your usual, and you can’t wait to taste it. But, as you look around the room, you notice that the place is so crowded that you can’t have a table to yourself. You’re going to have to share with someone else, just as many other people seem to be doing already.

    Now imagine that you’ve collected your coffee and have sat down at a table with someone who you’ve never seen before and haven’t met. After exchanging the usual pleasantries about the weather and how full the place seems to be, you discover that this person is a self-employed millionaire. And to look at him, you’d never guess. He’s not wearing a tailor-made suit, a shirt with French cuffs, or a tie.

    In fact, he’s dressed just like you: in a comfortable, well worn casual shirt, that’s open at the neck, jeans, and tennis shoes. And you learn from him that he divides his time between working from home and coming to a coffee shop like the one you’re in. And as you both sip your lattes, you also learn that not only did he not make his money as the result of creating some fantastic software that everyone now uses.

    He didn’t start a business in the financial sector. Nor the real estate market. Instead, he made all his money in an online information business.

    Wouldn’t you want to know more? Wouldn’t you be just a little curious as to how someone with no technical skills had managed to go from where you are to earning 20 times what you make in a year, and doing it every year?

    What questions would you have for this ordinary person with such an extraordinary income? And how would you feel if this person was willing to spend an hour or so telling you how you could do the same thing.

    Would that interest you?

    What does he consider to be success as an entrepreneur?

    How does he think being an entrepreneur has hindered you from becoming a better person?

    What systems has he set up in his home business to help it grow?

    Besides money, what is his favorite ways to compensate people?

    What’s the strangest thing h has ever done as an entrepreneur?

    These kinds of question rise in your mind and you would start communicate with him. So this is the very closer thoughts for those who are going to start their business.

    Terry Dean is such a person.

    And you can hear what he has to say about how he did it in an interview that I did with him.

    Entrepreneurs are born, not made, but thirst for freedom is the spark that ignites.”
    — Wilson Harrell

    What does it take to become a successful entrepreneur in today’s business world? Well, there are many giants of business you could ask, but you would be hard pressed to find anyone better than Wilson Harrell. Read about a country boy who became a marketing guru and entrepreneur. He is quite simply a business legend.

    Born in Georgia, 1919, Wilson Harrell, world renowned entrepreneur and marketing guru was a man of strong conviction. In his great business journey, he lived a glamorous life all through. Not all know that Wilson was a fighter pilot in World War II and received Purple heart, Air medal with 4 oak leaves and also the President Citation.

    It all began with Wilson Harrell & Company started by Wilson himself after the war. The company distributed Kraft products to huge military PX market and in very less time the company sales reached $200 million. But Wilson had other ideas, he sold the distribution company. Then he bought Formula 409, a household cleaner product company for $30,000 and turned it around. He later sold the company for $7 million and bought 60 food brokerage companies whose total sale exceeded $500 million.

    All in all, Wilson started over 100 companies and turned around a few. He was voted America’s no.1 columnist for the year 1995 and 1996 by the American society of Business for his monthly contribution to the Success Magazine. Wilson was also the past publisher of INC. magazine.

    Along with being the Founder/Chairman of council of growing companies, nationwide organization, Wilson was also the leader and voice of entrepreneur’s movement in America. His book “For Entrepreneurs Only” was a bestseller and still one of the most admired in this genre.

    In his book, he discussed the hunters and farmers of cave man age. He reasoned from science and a variety of studies that genes are passed down and often entrepreneurs are the children of entrepreneurs. At some point thousands of years ago, entrepreneurs were the hunters of our world while the farmers tend to be employees.

    He enjoyed great success in life and died in 1997 at the age of 78 from lung cancer.

    “I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
    I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
    And now the tears subside
    I find it all so amusing
    To think-I did it all that
    And may I say
    Not in a shy way
    Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my way”

    Looking at the top entrepreneurs in any field will show one common quality to which they can attribute their successes. In most every case their business success is a direct by-product for the passion they possess. No where is this more true than with internet entrepreneurs being that in most instances their passion is their chief major resource. For many working online their financial resources are limited therefore they must call upon other resources to compensate as a result. So why does being passionate play such an essential role in the financial ‘fates’ of successful entrepreneurs?

    Here is a look at 3 huge benefit this one particular quality offers anybody working online in terms of their ability to achieve business success!

    Excitement Initiates Action

    For many taking the first step is the most difficult part of carrying out any plan. The excitement produced by being passionate helps to push people to take immediate action. As many know the first step is usually the hardest one to take but successful entrepreneurs use their enthusiasm to overcome this hurdle.

    Enthusiasm Drives You On

    The energy supplied by an enthusiastic mood helps to propel internet entrepreneurs further into any new project or business venture thus creating momentum. As progress is seen moods are driven higher and so is the level of motivation as well. This is a good position to be in because after seeing progress you also know the concept or ideas you are pursuing actually work.

    Resilience Drives You Even Further

    Now it is unrealistic to assume there will not be glitches or set backs to contend with but when they do arise your passion helps to minimize any disappointment or discouragement. The tendency is to continue moving forward and the attitude is you will not be denied and this is what is needed to achieve business success. The willingness to do what it takes to get the job done and passion helps to provide and nurture this willingness!

    The top entrepreneurs in just about every field all share a common bond insofar as a certain quality they all possess. Being passionate about their business pursuits seems to be an very important factor as to how many successful entrepreneurs reach their goals. In fact no where is this more evident than with the vast majority of internet entrepreneurs. For many working online financial resources are limited therefore what they lack in capital has to be made up for in their efforts and determination. Passion serve as a great resource, as the discussion above explains, for supplying the necessary drive and resilience needed for business success. If this is a ‘resource’ you have in abundance than channeling your efforts online seems to be the way for you to go!

    Starting out to become a successful entrepreneur is a exciting emotional time in a persons life. A decision has been made to break away from the normal way of thinking about work and money possessed by the majority. The majority meaning about ninety seven percent of the population.

    Becoming a successful internet entrepreneur requires changing the way you were programmed to think. The decision has been made, backed by a commitment to become one of the -three percenters- that have chosen to take control of their financial future and live life on their own terms. There is no longer a boss making decisions about when, where, and how you will make a living. It will be all up to you either to succeed or fail.

    The most important aspect of becoming a successful entrepreneur will be your ability to set a goal and do what ever it takes to reach that goal. Realize that you must not just show up for the game, you must play to win and to win you must set goals.

    Almost everyone from business professionals to athletes have been coached on the need for setting goals and just how important it is, but many do not understand why they can not reach their set goals.

    What does it Require to reach a Goal?

    Why some succeed and most do not is that those that succeed have learned to attach a strong emotion to why their goal must be reached.

    Whether we are money hungry entrepreneurs or some other noble profession there has to be a deep underlying emotion attached to a goal. Just saying I want to make more money in itself can not be a goal. The questions must be asked, why do I want to make more money, how much money do I want to make and how will I feel when I receive this money? How will it make me fill emotionally, happy, jubilant, thankful, relieved? Concentrate on this emotion and how making more money will enforce this emotion.

    Finally, a time frame must be put on this goal.

    What exact date and time will this goal be met? A goal without a date and time set on it is merely becomes a wish and not reality.

    To become a successful entrepreneur, one must learn the proper way to set goals both short term and long term.

He has teamed up with the elite marketers at carboncopypro and together they are striving to change the world one person at a time. For more information go to

    Enlarge your entrepreneur focus and make visualizations an important part of your new daily routine. Entrepreneur success comes from having a vision, a clear mental picture of exactly what it is that you intend to realize. You have to be able to see it in your mind before you can achieve it. Imagine the outcome that you want, always focus on what you want and not the one you don’t want.

    Visualise with perfect focus. Don’t just think and picture what you want in a unclear way, form the details, the feel, the colour. The more details you can place on it the clearer you will see it and the more real it becomes to you in your mind’s eye. It is without doubt one of the key critical success factors for entrepreneur success.

    Most people if they would like success will generalize much too much. If you would like to have what is called success then you have to be very exact as to what you are calling success. How will you know when you have it? What will it feel like? What will you see and be when you have it? What is your measure for success? What do you need to do to achieve it?

    When you take a photo and it is out of focus that photograph will permanently be hazy and out of focus. The same applies to your visualizations. When you visualise something and fail to put the details in it, it will at all times be a hazy idea without any clarity. Give your brain precise mental pictures of what you would like and your imagination will respond accordingly.

    It is not about living in a dream world, it is making mental pictures of your desired outcomes. The bolder you make your images, giving them colour and making them real to you, then the more powerful you will feel towards them. Whatever you can think and believe you will be able to accomplish.

    Condition yourself to expect your entrepreneur success. Almost all of the limitations that we place on ourselves are the effect of our self images. However we see ourselves, we live our life, so by changing your images you start the process of changing your self beliefs and your expectations.

    Success is a habit, it is the result of developing an attitude. Attitudes are simply habits in the mind. Create your success habit in your mind, spend a few minutes each day and develop your mental picture. It is a critical success factor for your entrepreneur success.

    If you are ready to make a change in yourself and start being an entrepreneur success the change has to first take place from you. A positive mental attitude and the desire to take action are critical success factors for your entrepreneur success.

    What separates an entrepreneur success and someone who wishes to be a success? Why does one person make something work and another just let it go?

    The difference is that the successful entrepreneur expects that whatever they do and devote themselves to will work out. They have a positive attitude. Their expectations are geared to the inevitable success that they will have, and they will do what they need to do so that their venture will succeed. The unsuccessful hopefuls dream of success and hope that something will happen to them so that success is given to them. Success never lands on our feet without us doing something for its achievement.

    If you see an opportunity you have to embrace it and take the nessesary action. There is a law of give and receive that says you first have to give before you can expect to recieve, you have to plant your seeds before you can get the benefits.

    What we all encounter in the world is a reflection of all that we put out with our thoughts. If you give a poor attitude and expect nothing to work out then that will be your experience, and if your attitude is of great expectation and positive to others then your experience becomes very different.

    It is your attitude lets us encounter what we call luck breaks. Lucky breaks are simply a process of favorable events and discoveries that have opened up to us. By getting the right attitude that enables us to see them more and act on them more.

    Whatever is in your mind you will translate into your physical reality, whether you have great expectations or none at all, whatever you think about will be true for you. Put your mind to work on what you really want and not what you don’t want, focus on what you want to be and not what you don’t want to be.

    It is your attitude that will form your future when you start your business, whatever it is. You need to understand what business you would love to do, and what your plan is, but it is you that will take you to entrepreneur success.

    Every serious entrepreneur is aware of the power of Internet marketing. However, a majority of them still consider online marketing to be related to the company website, email and online ads. While these online mediums make a significant part of the internet market, there has been a revolution in the last five years in the online world that has given birth to another powerful medium social media or social networking.

    Social media or social networking can be defined as group of activities that combine technology with social interaction. Some of the common tools that are being used for social networking are LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, MySpace, YouTube, and Digg. However, not many entrepreneurs have been able to use social media effectively and a large number of them have been successful in annoying their potential customers. They fail to realize that social networking sites are a place for social interaction and not a place to peddle your products by spamming the entire community.

    Serious entrepreneurs take time to learn the etiquettes and rules of each social media and focus on building lasting relationships. They make sure that they do not end up making any wrong move that may get them blacklisted or ejected from the community. They establish relationships that may become their loyal customer base but their main motive is to not only make money but also make great friends.

    Serious entrepreneurs understand the significance of social media thoroughly and understand how it can help them grow. Lets see how:

    Social media creates a level playing field between an entrepreneur and a Fortune 500 company.
    Social networking sites provide access to professionals and potential partners who you cannot reach out to in the real life.
    Social media sites give every serious entrepreneur an opportunity to show that he or she cares about the community.
    It broadens your target market by breaking geographical barriers and enables you to have customers, partners, and suppliers all over the world.
    Social networking can be a great marketing tool for entrepreneurs who are not good at communicating in real life.
    Social media is one of the most effective as well as economical tool for conducting marketing research on your target customers.

    So, if you are a serious entrepreneur who has been waiting on the side-lines watching other businesses grow with the help of social media, it is time that you, too, join these communities and test the waters. However, it is advisable that you do your research and take time to learn each of the social networking tools to minimize any error that may annoy others.

    The world is awash with entreprenuers and we have noticed that 9 to 5 kind of jobs is not the route to financial freedom. You can do a 9 to 5 kind of job, retire honouably but i promise you your financial base is nothing compared to the that of an entrepreneur who ventured to start something something for themselves.

    Entrepreneurship is a systematic approach used to identify, bring to life and nourish to fruition of an ideal or oppournity. Entrepreneurs perceive potentials and build on them by directing his or her resources to achieve pre-determined goals. The human resource is of importance because it is in born in all. It manifest as talents and deep seated aspirations. The material resource is secondary.

    The featuers of Entrepreneurs are numerous but lefts nose dive into it. Entrepreneurs have a high level of business consciousness. They can discern between assets and liabilities. They can see business potentials when they get close to one. Their eyes and mind can see potentials even when clothed in failures. In addition, they are ready ti indulge in moderate calculated risks because they do a through base line study of their potential business ideal. These base line studies give them a clear picture if the target market, the dos and don’ts the requirements and the legal impediments.They make sound business judgement before they dive into any business venture.

    Entrepreneurs are dynamic and hard working. They do not dive into business because it is in vogue or it has made their next door friend millionaires. They nourish their idea with creative innovations thus making it unique. They have superb abilities in allocating time, resources and task.

    Remember, Entrepreneurs do not dive into business ventures. Like I said above, the world is awash with entrepreneurs. Subsequently, study yourself before you throw in yor material into any venture if not you would close shop few months after.

    In conclusion, engage professional to do the base line studies and visit a solicitor and you would know the legal angel of your proposed business venture.
