Celebrate Women’s History Month!

Some women get erased a little at a time, some all at once. Some reappear. Every woman who appears wrestles with the forces that would have her disappear. She struggles with the forces that would tell her story for her, or write her out of the story, the genealogy, the rights of man, the rule of law. The ability to tell your own story, in words or images, is already a victory, already a revolt.”

Rebecca SolnitMen Explain Things to Me

The above quote means so much to be on why it is so important that women own their life’s story and that is the most powerful story you will ever tell on planet earth.

“You had the power all along my dear.”

—Glinda the Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

Love the Wizard of Oz? This quote should remind you, yes you, as a woman you have the power, the pen to design your life with intention anyway you desire. You do this by making life choices and not life being the dictator of those choices. Easy? No impossible? No. Attainable? Yes!

“You deserve someone who lets you glow in every way you need to.” ― Nikita Gill, Wild Embers

This quote says it all. You deserve!

Lastly. YOU have the power. Own it!

Why Entrepreneurship? Why I love it..here are just a few reasons..

Episode 2

Freedom:

What is entrepreneurship without freedom? Just merely existing. Why? As an entrepreneur, you can write your own paycheck! You are the one that at times has the sole responsibility to see your vision for your business endeavor become a reality. You are literally carrying the “baby” that YOU want to see come alive! Can YOU handle the driver’s seat”? It’s a fun ride!

Opportunity:

The opportunity that entrepreneurship affords is fantastic! Where in the world can you as an individual choose such a profession that can open your world into a sea of opportunity? Nowhere! The moment you choose to become one, you open yourself up to so many possibilities, and dependent upon what you want and what industry you’re in, that can be tremendous! The sky is truly the limit!

Responsibility:

Yes, entrepreneurship is all about that and then some. When you leap to become one, you are taking on the obligation to become a valued asset to you, your community, and the world around you. Remember this: entrepreneurs are “heroes” and with that comes responsibility. Never think of entrepreneurship as a one day or once a year thing. It’s never that easy and if you think so, think again. It’s a lifetime commitment to becoming a valued asset in the world around you as you make a conscious decision to be an active participant.

Creativity:

The beauty of entrepreneurship, yes to be in a position to create not just your idea of wealth, but to utilize your creative mind and see how far it may get you. Why not open the doors to these possibilities and see where it takes you. It may take you places you really want to go. If you decide to do so, watch your creative juices open up because of the freedom it gives you to express yourself!

The American Dream:

The Dream as well as a universal dream becomes alive when entrepreneurs decide to come together and do whatever is best, which is to CREATE! Do you realize how many of your favorite brands that you buy from each have come from ordinary people living extraordinary lives by deciding to contribute to this world in which we live? The world’s economy as well as the dream of billions is really something special. We all have within us the desire, but we all never see it realized for various reasons. The World’s economy moves and turns as entrepreneurs decide they want a “piece of the pie”, which is our “right” as well as our “responsibility.”

Giving Back:

What better way to not only be responsible, but to have the ability to give back to those who have impacted your life in a way that having your own business will do. You can give back in oh so many ways pick one! Entrepreneurship is what we are all about and that is giving back where we see the need. It’s not just for the money, but what the money can do is what it’s all about. You can impact people, places, and profit in ways that can cause great change and in a positive direction!

Profit:

While it’s not all about the money, it does help. We are not in the business to not make a living. Entrepreneurship is why we see our dreams come alive for a profit. We are business people who have come to the marketplace to showcase the wares that we hope that you will buy. Profit is at its best when the entrepreneur is at a place where they can enjoy the money that comes with hard work. The profit that a business owner makes, gives him or her the ability to further realize their dreams and possibly the dreams of others. It’s a personal thing and a communal one at the same time. And yes, the money is nice, that’s why we do it. Have passion and you will profit from what you love and do best!

The Need For More:

Yes, we need more entrepreneurs. I would not say pack up and quit your day job or night for that matter, but I would say follow your dreams and your heart! If YOU feel the tug to do more and want out of life perhaps entrepreneurship is what you are seeking. If you are sick of watching millionaires and billionaires make a huge amount of money then, why wait any longer, become one. It is one of the greatest experiences in the World!

Do you think you have what it takes? You might be surprised by the answer. Never underestimate yourself and your experiences, it is in those experiences that there is the hidden treasure that is buried deep. These podcasts may just be “the trigger” you need to realize how capable and talented you are!

Enjoy these “50 Steps To Startup” on “Conversations With Annette” and become an Entrepreneur that changes your world and the World!

P.S. Don’t forget to check out my Premium Content with books on a variety of subjects like how to anything, how to plan for your business, and marketing strategy hacks that will get you started on your way to a very successful online endeavor!

Embracing Change in a Work from Home Environment

The Digital Vibe Podcast

Episode 5

Everything Must be Balanced

There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.

Jack Welch

You must have the aptitude and the disposition to start or transition into a home based business environment. Its not enough to have the basic knowledge of your desired industry but you must have the self discipline and consistency that is required to maintain a home based environment.  Its not for everybody. Not everyone can handle the isolation that working from home brings.  Not everyone has the self discipline that it requires when you have to go it alone. If you are someone who constantly needs affirmation and direction, then having a home based environment might take some getting used to.  If  you are one who readily accepts change and are willing to “bend a little”, then you are a perfect fit.  It may take some time but you will adapt well to a changing environment.

Balance

Finding balance in a work from home environment may be more challenging than the work itself.  You have to find balance when it comes to any changing environment.  If you are now at home and you have a small space that you can use as your office then that will be suitable for what you need.  You really don’t need a huge space, unless you have a personal desire to wide open spaces, a small area will work just fine.

Finding balance may be as simple as having space for work, space for your entertainment, and a little space for everything else. If you are living in a 1200 square foot home then you have sections you can use so that each room is adequate for what your needs are. You don’t necessarily need a huge mansion to perform your work like you think you might need.  Having boundaries in your work and personal life will determine how well you succeed at a home environment. You want to be able to perform at your best so you can deliver the best results possible.

Finding balance if you are doing a side hustle can be a bit more difficult because you now have to balance the boss environment with your own personal development.  You have to answer to yourself and to your superiors as well.  Creating boundaries for these work types while managing to have time for yourself takes time.  Its an adjustment when you have several parts of yourself and you want to be able to express each one in the best situation possible.

Another benefit to working from home is that you are not tied to the typical 9 to 5 which all depends on factors like what time zones is your team located in , what is your industry, and other uncontrollable factors. A 9 to 5 EST is different in a global environment.  You have to be able to adapt to these factors because they are contingent upon the success of you business. I knew that I wanted to start an online business and become an Internet Entrepreneur. Their was NO if, ands, or buts.  

My passion for independence, freedom, and learning was what brought me to the Internet in the first place. I saw so much potential and then some.  I wanted to be able to live out loud and have a profitable thriving business while making an impact on the world. I have been able to do so and working from home for me is a God send. I am grateful to be able to do what I love and make a sizable income from it. What more could you ask for!  If you choose to make a living from your passion on the Internet look at the pros and cons and if the pros outweigh the cons then proceed ahead with confidence!

As long as you are able to commit to deadlines and working with teams globally, you are not going to have much of a problem.  You will be able to adapt to a changing environment like the Internet and working from home. Adjustments like anything else comes with the package. You have to commit yourself to educating yourself on what is going on in the world around you.  The Internet is a great way to stay informed and build a brand that can make you income for years to come.  You have to be bold and have a strong desire to see yourself succeed and let no one stand in the way of your success!

Enjoyed the series? I hope so! Don’t forget to tell your friends that when you come to “The Vibe” you will have a show! Enjoy the next episodes to come! Check out Premium! You’ll be glad you did!

Embracing Change in a Work from Home Environment

The Digital Vibe Podcast

Episode 4

Supplying products via the Internet

As we produce work that becomes pure poetry, we impact and influence our teammates, we wow our suppliers, we inspire customers and strangers. And we lead our industry.

Robin S. Sharma

Data or digital products are the Internet-age term which implies to the publication of data-rich material on the web. This material may take any form, but broadly when we speak about data products we’re talking about eBooks, e-zines, videos, audio-books and the like.  Generally, this is material that people may download and store on their hard disk drive and withdraw it afterwards according to their convenience.  

Using Data

There are two ways in which you’re able to  get into the digital merchandise business:

You might produce the data content yourself or outsource it to someone so that you have your own merchandise to distribute. You might promote another person’s merchandise on your site or blog. Either way, you’re producing and selling informative material that interested customers would buy.

You can create what is called an “informational product” out of your learned knowledge and sign up with a digital provider to sell downloads like, Ejunkie.com, Getdpd.com, or Payhip.com.  Some of these online providers are free (they get a percentage of your sales) or paid on a monthly or yearly subscription.

One great way to sell and market your products is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a way to have other people sell your products for a percentage of commission sales. You can get them to promote your product through social media, their blog or website, or through video or podcasting.

In cases like these you may not need have to own your own website or blog because the affiliates would have the platform and outlets necessary to market and promote your products.  This is a great way to start an online venture especially if you have limited funds. Its also a great way to start if you rally don’t want to get bogged down with having to maintain a website or blog.

If you sell your own merchandise there are a lot more advantages. Number one, people associate you with somebody who’s an authority on the subject matter.  You become believable and you build a long lasting reputation in the process. This will ensure that your additional products get a niche for themselves too. Owning and producing your own products does not mean that you have to create them all yourself.  You can outsource your creative work and pay an additional cost to get them produced. Get the most you can out of producing your very own informational products. Create value and offer value to your customers and build yourself a well liked reputation in the process. Having an online presence can whether you start or already have one might be the next option to take your brand and your business to the next level.

The value of your education

Never undervalue your knowledge and expertise. Your knowledge that you’ve obtained overtime is as invaluable as the day you learned it. Never take for granted the time spent and the investment made in educating yourself and creating a livelihood for your business.  Time now has proven that what you’ve learned over time was not wasted its now priceless gold!

Another way to use digital to your advantage is by selling and promoting it on a membership platform where customers for a monthly fee download each month your premium products.  This type of business model is not easy to start but the residual income earned from this endeavor can pay off more than your bills.  For example, if you were to have 5000 monthly subscribers at a fee of $5,99 per month you will have by the end of each month if they don’t cancel, $29,950 and $359,400 per year respectively.  That sounds nice huh?  With this model you can sell videos, pdfs or ebooks, and audio files.

You can also decide to become a reseller of goods.  By a reseller I mean the selling of goods that are not your own.  You are selling branded and non branded merchandise from a source and reselling those products for a profit to you.  You are purchasing the product at wholesale and in turn selling that product for a profit that is suitable for the market and for you.   For example, I resell goods from a global publisher and I mark up the products that I want to sell and for a profit I mark up the percentage that suits me and the market I am targeting.  I decide to sell based on what I am passionate for and not necessarily what the market demands.  You have to decide for yourself do you want to sell on profit or solely on passion or both.

Here a few more choices that you can choose from:

Naturally, it’s understood that the sort of services that have a demand on the internet are services that you are able to supply online. These are by and large services related to site building and promoting. The following services are much desired:-

The drawback here is that you must spend time. You have to be at your desktop most of the time as you interact with others.  This all depends on the industry your in so all rules don’t necessarily apply.  Take a look at your smart phone.  That tool is one of your greatest assets when it comes to an Internet business. You can engage with clients globally via text or email and get business done any time of day. No restrictions.

Networking or community engagement is another way to establish a network of people and jointly market your merchandise or service. With a network or group you can gain the attention of many like minded individuals who are very interested in what you have to offer.

Embracing Change in a Work from Home Environment

The Digital Vibe Podcast

Episode 3

A few starter hints

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long s you do not stop”

Confucius

  • If you a tired of your “normal” 9 to 5 then you really want to listen to this episode.  Your normal 9 to 5 might be that one thing that’s enabling you from taking the leap to starting your own home based business.  If you are dreaming of having your own business and staying up late at night envisioning what your life could be like, then you can achieve this by having a side hustle.
  • If you have lots of ideas on starting and doing a home based business endeavor then now’s the time to implement those ideas in the  form of a side hustle in order to get and keep your feet wet when you are ready for a transition like this.  The beauty of having a part time hustle is that you never quit your normal job right away. You are holding on to that job for as long as you need to and then when the time is right, you make the move to your entrepreneurial goals. You can do both if you are able to manage your time well.  It is never a good thing to quit before you have established your business because if that falls through not as planned what do you have to fall back on?  Be smart about it.
  • A work from home environment brings so many benefits when it comes to business. You are solopreneuring and you are a microcosm of your team.  If you have a team of people that are located globally then you can interact with them through the latest technology. With meetings, you can use Go To Meetings or Zoom, or a host of other tools in a work at home environment.  You can use email and social media to get your message across.  In this day and age their is absolutely no excuse for not being adept to the Internet. If its your dreams that you are talking about then you will do whatever it tales to get from point a to point z and all that is in between. No excuses!
  • Another benefit is the benefit of time. Use time to your advantage because you can schedule when and how you work. For example, If you are on the west coast and are dong business internationally, you can schedule your meeting that is both suitable and accessible for both parties involved. If you are not a morning person like I am NOT then you can schedule those meetings when it suits you best.  It makes you feel more confident because you are in control of how you spend your time. Also, you have the time to take the time to sit back and do nothing.  I take time out of my day to read a book, take a nap, listen to music, watch a movie, or not do anything at all.  This lifestyle is a flexible lifestyle that you are not tied down to by a clock or even watching it.  You are so into what you are doing and yes, time does fly by because you are having fun and making money!
  • With a home business, there are no bosses to look over your shoulder and get in your face every once in a while.  The only person that will have something to say will be the face of you looking at yourself in the mirror. Being your own boss means that you ought to be able to produce more and bring out high quality work. With the advent and the interaction of the Internet, it is now possible to search for different and many home business ideas online today.  You literally have at your fingertips a plethora of ideas and businesses to choose from so their should be no excuse for not finding something that suites your taste.
  • The first thing that you ought to ask yourself before beginning your home business is what your area of expertise is. Take a personal assessment of your skills and the things that you enjoy. What are the things you like and dislike? Write these thing down and see for yourself where you stand and then decide what direction you want to go in. If you are mufti talented, then you have a lot more to choose from then the average person who only has one or two OR who has not invested time into learning more to advance his skills.
  • There are those individuals who are specialists in baking and likewise decorating cakes for special events, this may be an idea for you. There are others who know how to bake assorted types of cakes. They may have recipes for the different sorts of cakes and this could be something that has been passed down from generation to generation. This could be a business endeavor that you could try if this is your area of expertise. As a matter of fact, if you really want to take this type of business to the next level and not just as a hobby, your income earned here can turn out quite nicely!
  • The point is, whatever you are good at can become a home business!
