Passion and Fears in Business

I am truly sorry that I did not advertise the conference that happened tonight, as there was a very special guest speaker for Randy Ritter’s “Road to Success” conference.

Lt. Col. Robert “Waldo” Waldman – motivational speaker and best selling author.  – - – -

It was a real joy to listen to him. He was not pretentious, he interacted with individual attendees as if we were all friends and acquaintances … and not strangers.

And while he used a lot of pilot speak (wingman, throttle, etc), he used them in ways that us non-military folks could easily understand.

He covered a few topic, but they were all connected with each other. His basic message was to find something passionate to do (whether in business or personal life). Take action – and be progressive in your actions.

Now we all have fears. In the business world, one of the biggest ones is the fear of failure. This is common! But it doesn’t have to cripple us.

By being prepared, we can learn the skills sets we need to overcome rejections, mistakes, and other obstacles that try to prevent us from succeeding. Being prepared can be being proficient in the tools we online marketers use, such as traffic exchanges, autoresponders, splash page builders, and more.

Another great way to overcome our fears is to have a “wingman”, or an accountability partner. This person (or persons) is someone who will give you constructive criticism. They need to tell you what you NEED to know, not what you want to know. They can see your blind spots and weaknesses. These are the people you go to to ask for help.

In conjunction with that – network! Join a mastermind group – a group of folks with similar goals and passions, but with differing skill sets than yours. You challenge each other and help each other.

Volunteering is another great way to overcome fears and to network. Build relationships. But don’t forget to continuously nurture those relationships since you will never know when you will need to call on them for help.

And lastly – and yes, I know it’s a plug – come and join us at TELive every day. We are all a bunch of like-minded individuals … small business owners who want to help each other succeed. We encourage folks to get on the microphone (with or without a camera is fine). Many of us are still shy, but by practicing in a room of friends, there is no pressure … there is no judgements … there is no bias.

So come join us, even if you don’t get on the mic or cam! It’s free to join … no need to create an account … but we do ask if you use  your real name and not a “screen name”. Transparency + Networking = More success for you and your business – no matter your niche! (aka TELive Room)

Monday – Fridays at 4:00 PM ET (1:00 PM PT)

Next Tuesday, December 6 at 6:00 PM ET in the TELive room, Randy Ritter will host David Martin. He has spoken with us recently and we have nothing but rave reviews. If you have an online business, you need to join us! Don’t miss out on the gold nuggets this gentleman passes out!
