Entrepreneurship: the Truth is in the Methodology

"To persevere in obstinate condolence is a course of impious stubbornness," wrote Shakespeare in his play Hamlet in the year 1601.

Persistence is often presented as the key element of entrepreneurial success, but this approach misses 99% of what makes a business viable and prosperous.

A man can waste his life digging holes on the ground without achieving any positive results.

No matter what goal we choose to pursue, our energies and resources will be always limited. Overemphasising persistence can lead to commercial arrogance and blindness.

Success is one, but errors can be infinite:

* Repeatedly asking people who are obviously not interested.
* Continue to use distribution channels that have proven inappropriate for certain products.
* Sticking to formats or contents that customers don't like.
* Adopting a communication strategy that alienates the best prospects for your business.

The key element of successful entrepreneurship has nothing to do with persistence. Starting and growing a business has little to do with stubbornness and everything with flexibility. It is a psychological trait that is stifled by rigidity and enhanced by change.

Entrepreneurship is a skill that has everything to do with perception and vision.

It is an ability that goes far beyond the sphere of commerce and that can be applied to all areas of human life, from cooking at home, to repairing old clothes.

If I had to give the shortest definition of entrepreneurship, I would propose the words "realistic double vision."

What sets entrepreneurs apart from the rest of the population is their capacity to link current problems to potential solutions that can be implemented realistically.

While many devote countless hours to complain about problems, the entrepreneurial mind is steadily focused on figuring out solutions and assessing their feasibility.

Such double vision, when exercised systematically, conveys powers resembling a higher level of awareness.

This skill, which is half-psychological and half-material, is the only characteristic present in all entrepreneurs. Double vision is a talent that dwarfs the role played by persistence.

The bridge between perceived problems and realistic solutions can be built in ten different ways:

1. ASSEMBLY: Changes in design that make products easier and cheaper to manufacture.
2. SPACE: Moving products from low-demand to high-demand territories.
3. PACKAGING: Repackaging old content into highly attractive new products.
4. HUMAN: Organizing or motivating people in ways that dramatically increase the value of their output.
5. TIME: Figuring out how to increase dramatically the speed of delivering a service.
6. MATERIALS: Replacing old materials by new ones that increase the perceived value of products.
7. STORY: Associating a story to products that renders them popular.
8. DISTRIBUTION: Finding more efficient ways to use existing distribution channels.
9. FINANCE: Identifying ways to fund a venture that previously seemed unfeasible.
10. MERGE OR SPLIT: Splitting, disaggregating, or uniting elements in ways that make them more valuable to consumers.

Entrepreneurs dig holes on the ground only if they have good reasons to believe that this is a feasible solution to a burning problem.

Their psychological energies and material resources are focused on identifying viable responses to perceived opportunities.

I propose "realistic double vision" as optimal methodology to define, teach, and develop entrepreneurship, or as Shakespeare put it in Hamlet, "making more matter with less art."

Allow Me to Share the Truth About Internet Marketing and Owning a Home Business

Dear aspiring entrepreneur,



Before we get started, I want to be very blunt and completely honest with you. If you are looking for a "get rich quick" scheme or are looking to make $1000 by next week, then you need to leave this page! The information I am about to share with you is only for people who are SERIOUS about making a living as an Internet Marketer and a Home Business Entrepreneur. So, if that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, then good luck to you with your future endeavors and maybe I'll see you again in the future.



On the flip side, if you ARE ready to become a SERIOUS Internet Marketer and a Home Business Entrepreneur, then please read on. Over the next few minutes, I am going to expose to you the TRUTH behind Internet Marketing and Working from Home. I am going to tell you what it takes to become a successful Internet Marketer and I am also going to tell you what most Internet Marketing Guru's fail to explain to you.



Internet Marketing can be simply explained as using various websites, search engines, and Internet Marketing tools to "market" (or sell) products, services, and information to people over the Internet. Almost everyone you and I know uses the Internet in some form or another; whether it is to check their email, log on to their favorite social networking site, or to buy and sell something on an auction website. People from all walks of life and of all ages use the Internet on a daily basis and in today's troubling times, millions of people are now using the Internet for a NEW purpose; to make money!



The Home Business industry is a multi-million dollar a year industry! Thousands of people are starting their own business from home each and every day and the number keep growing month after month. Now why do you think this is? Well there are a few reasons for it. Home Businesses are:






Convenient - you almost never have to leave your home or office!


Profitable - many people make a good living working from home (most of the time over 6 figures)!


Guaranteed - working from home gives you a secure income and occupation that will never change regardless of how the current economy is moving.






With a home business, you never have to worry about:






Working 40 hours a week at a dead end job that pays you less than what you can live off of!


Spending hours in traffic every morning and evening!


Waking up at the same time every day doing the same boring routine day after day after day!






Wouldn't it be nice to have the freedom to do whatever you want WHENEVER you want? Wouldn't it be nice to have the car or home of your dreams without having to worry about whether or not you can afford it? And, wouldn't it be nice to be able to provide for your family without having to run yourself into the ground to do it? Well, ALL these things are possible when you start you own Home Business.



So how do Internet Marketing and owning a Home Business tie into each other? Quite simply, to be a successful Home Business owner, you MUST know how to be an Internet Marketer. This is the TRUTH that other Internet Marketing Gurus fail to mention! You have absolutely no chance whatsoever of running a successful Home Business, if you cannot market it over the Internet; plain and simple!



The simple fact that you have stumbled upon this article means that you are either a) interested in becoming an Internet Marketer, b) interested in starting a Home Business, or c) you were just looking for something to read. Chances are, options A and B are correct. And if so, that means that you have most likely been searching for an opportunity for quite some time now. You may have even tried an opportunity or two before. Now let me ask you something; did it fail? It probably did, right? WHY???



Simply because, 99.9% of the opportunities found on the Internet today are SCAMS. I'm sorry to say this but they are. Some Internet Guru uses his masterful mind and dreams up some unbelievable opportunity and decides to market it. It is so good and gets you so excited that you would be crazy not to become part of it! So you get suckered in like everyone else. And like everyone else, you successfully get scammed. Here's how it works:



These Internet Gurus have one sole purpose in mind and that is to make money. Not because they want you to succeed as they have, not because they have a fool-proof system, and not because they find enjoyment in helping other! All they care about is selling you their e-book for some astronomical amount of money! Once they do that, their job is done. They could care less whether or not you know how to market their opportunity. They could care less whether or not you take the time to read their "million page" e-book. The only thing they care about is taking your money! Congratulations...you have just successfully been scammed. That is the TRUE meaning behind the phrase "get rich quick." You don't get rich quick, THEY DO!



Sounds familiar doesn't it? Of course it does. This sort of thing happens every day to millions of unsuspecting people trying to make a living for themselves. To be honest, it's quite the lucrative business practice. If I knew how to be a cold hearted, money hungry, ignorant scam artist the I'D dream up some masterful plan to scam innocent people. But frankly, that's just now me. I'd rather work hard, smart, and honest.



So please, don't get sucked in by another scam artist. Stop wasting your time and money on e-books that are so lengthy and confusing that you have to keep reading them over and over again just to get the picture. Stop getting left out in the cold and start a REAL Home Business!



A real Home Business requires several things:






An Internet Marketing strategy that allows even the most inexperienced person to start marketing over the Internet in a simple, easy to follow manner.


An investment of time and money to get your marketing campaign up and running.


An investment in products and services that will ultimately generate revenue for your business.


A system that can be duplicated so that other people interested in starting THEIR own business, can follow in the same footsteps as you.




Think of a Home Business as a fast food franchise opening up a new store. What does that franchise need in order to accomplish this? They need money. They need to pay to have the new store build or they need to pay rental fees or remodeling fees. They need to pay for equipment and supplies, and they need to pay employees to run the new store.



This same principal holds true with a Home Business. In order for it to be successful, it will require you to invest your time and money. Your investment will pay for products and services needed to successfully run your business. It will also pay for advertising and marketing so other people can purchase those products and services from you.



A real Home Business also requires duplication. Lets go back to the fast food store for a second. So they've opened the new store . It looks exactly like every other one of its kind. They provide the same options and benefits as ever other store EXCEPT for one thing. This particular store is only open on the weekends. Now how successful do you think this store is going to be? They are only open 2 days a week unlike the other stores which are open 7. Do you think they are going to be as productive and profitable? Probably not! Here's why.



Even though the new that there was already a system in place that was GUARANTEED to work, that was PR OVEN to be profitable, they decided for some reason to try something else. They thought by doing something different and their way, it would be more productive. Does that make any sense?



Duplication is by far the most powerful tool that make a Home Business successful. All you have to do is follow the step by step system that other successful Home Business owners are already doing. Their system works, they make money with it, they know what they are doing, all you have to do is copy it. That's it! It can't get any easier than that!



So what now? How do I get started?



The answer is simple...I have a system in place that makes me a successful Home Business owner and all you have to do is "duplicate" what I am doing. Starting you own Home Business is easy and can be very profitable if you have a system that works. Well now you do; MINE! That being said, let me introduce you to the "Rags 2 Riches System."



This system was developed by Chad Rissanen, a very successful Home Business owner who discovered a way to make an incredible income from home. His system can be accessed 100% FREE of charge by clicking the link at the bottom of this article. Once you fill out the form on his website, you will get instant access to his incredible system for FREE. He walks you through the system step by step, with audio commentary, how to set up and start you OWN Home Business simply by copying what he is doing. There is a small investment involved to get everything up and running but I can tell you its far less than what those Internet Gurus are charging for their services.



So, if you're ready to start your own business then I STRONGLY suggest you visit the link below. You could have your new Home Business up and running in a few short hours. DON'T DELAY...get started now and I'll see you at the top!



Regards,



Dustin Kratochwill



A successful Internet Marketer



PS: Did you know that almost 90% of Home Business failures are do to the fact that most people FAILED to act?! They simply got scared and ran away because things got to hard or complicated. Don't be one of those people. This system is PROVEN to work and all you have to do is copy it! How much easier can it get?
