You’re Going To Die Soon, Stop Wasting Time

Do you know what your most precious asset is?

It’s not your house. It’s not your car. It’s not your business. And its not money either.

Do you know what it is?

It is your time. Your time is the most valuable and precious asset you have. If you lose your house, car or business, you can make these back. Once your time is gone it’s gone.

Loads of people who were millionaires lost all their fortune and then became millionaires again. Peter Jones from Dragons Den and American Inventor who was a millionaire – but then got bankrupt. However he turned it all around and is now worth an estimated £475 million.

Have you ever been to a boring lecture that you never received any value from or just plain wasted your time watching a rerun of a TV show? The time you invested in any of those tasks you are not going to get back, it is gone forever.

Its like the quote from the movie Blade Runner by Rutger Hauer’s character “All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.” This quote is actually said after Hauer’s character saves Harrison Ford’s character from falling. I don’t want to spoil the movie for you but the quote is saying In the end all memories and everything get lost in time.

leave your legacy

Don’t just waste your time doing unproductive things or things that don’t matter. If you don’t know how to manage your time or want to become more productive then there are plenty of articles on this blog to help you out.

Your Time Is Very Limited

You might think I have all the time in the world. You might be thinking to yourself that right now I am only young and I have the rest of my life ahead of me to actually do all the things that I want, that’s why I’m going to relax or chill now.

But that is the wrong way to think. You can die at any time. Check out this list of celebrities who died under 30. But death doesn’t just come to celebrities it hits everyone. Every soul shall taste death.

Now I don’t mean to be pessimistic about life. You have to make sure you leave an impact on the world. Whether that is helping people out in need and having your own foundation like actor Paul Walker among many others. Or even creating/inventing your own products/services that help solve people’s problems like Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs or millions of other entrepreneurs in the world. or you can even build your own business empire like Richard Branson.

It doesn’t have to be on a big scale either, make sure you do good with other people, help them out in times of need and leave your legacy.

I think co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs explains my point better with this quote:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

What Steve is saying in this quote is don’t waste your time working for another person building their dream. Work for yourself, build your own dream.

Don’t just go through the motions of life and just merely exist or survive. You don’t just want to exist, you want to go ahead and conquer.

Leave Your Legacy

On your death bed in your final moments, are you going to be thinking about all the TV shows or movies that you missed out on. “Damn, I should have watched Game of Thrones” or “I should have been a Belieber and listened to Justin Bieber more”.

I highly doubt anyone is going to have those kind of thoughts or regrets on their deathbed. They will more likely be thinking of what they are going to leave behind. Or what their legacy is or what they are passing onto the next generation.

Or they might even think about all the time they wasted and how they should have actually done something with that time instead of wasting it.

Do something with your time. Open that business that you have always wanted to. Start a charitable foundation. Leave an impact on the world. Leave your legacy.

What do you plan on starting or doing? Let me know in the comment section below.

Share this with someone who you think is wasting their time and needs a little point in the right direction!

Remember you’re going to die soon, stop wasting time and do something!

How to Become a Genius?

Entrepreneurs and geniuses come in all shapes, sizes and nationalities. There are entrepreneurs and geniuses all over the world.

To celebrate The Success Story being available to download for free on Amazon Kindle we have highlighted three of the generations greatest entrepreneurs and geniuses.

Albert Einstein

So, who is this first example? Germany’s own Albert Einstein. Yes the discoverer of this small insignificant thing called the theory of relativity or better known as E=MC2. And the bomb that wiped out Hiroshima.

He is our first example because he had a mindset that brought him to where he was. Here was some of his qualities and situations.

Good old Albert was:

• Dyslexic: This is a disorder of the brain by which someone will perceive letters backwards. This doesn’t make things easy to read so this brings us to the next bullet point.

• He stunk when it came to science and other subjects but excelled in math. You would think that someone could invent a hydrogen bomb that stunk at science.

• Didn’t even start talking until he was 2 and asked his mother why his sister didn’t have wheels. Hmm… No comment.

• He was married like three times and one of those times being his cousin.

• He was rejected from colleges yet turned down the offer to be president of Israel. This man didn’t even begin to succeed until his later life!

entrepreneur

 

So, what was the one thing that kept him going? Well, we could give the lame answer and say he had a win win and can do attitude, blah blah blah, you get that with every Crackerjack entrepreneurial book. But, that isn’t us. You’re reading this to get into the mindset of an entrepreneur and though he was more of an inventor and discoverer, Uncle Albert had the heart and mind of an entrepreneur. Why? Because as he said in one of his most famous quotes “ A clever person solves a problem, a wise person avoids it”. So what does this mean to the entrepreneurial mindset? Aren’t you supposed to run headlong and tackle problems?

Well, not really. An entrepreneur will find ways to avoid a problem that they can’t fix and think outside the box to find the resources to go around it. Therefor it is no longer an obstacle. The man that invented the H-bomb HAD TO think as an entrepreneur should think when they approach any obstacle. So thank you Uncle Albert for the rule of the entrepreneurial mindset number one:

Think Outside the Box! And be unconcerned with the opinions of Others about who you are and where you are going.

Mark Zuckerberg

So, now we know that thinking outside the box is an important thing, and must be coupled with not being concerned with what others think of you—because you can’t do one without the other. We go on to the other guy. Mark Zuckerberg.

Most people will either love him or hate him—think he cares? With Facebook worth over 200 Billion. So, did it walk right up to him and fall in his lap? NO, did he freak out and sell FB to the first person that offered this kind of money? Nope, the last we checked he is still the owner and living it large while the rest of us are still moaning about our mediocre lives on FB taking selfies and the millionth picture of our dog.

 

Mark Zuckerberg , Facebook

What was his mindset? Well, apart from sharing a mindset with Albert Einstein in entrepreneurial mindset number one—he had confidence. This boy walked away from Microsoft, and Mtv as well as several other major conglomerates that weren’t offering him chump change for this invention. He walked away from millions and billions. His people must have thought he lost his mind. But, no, he learned young to negotiate with one hand on the door and be confident.

The mindset of en entrepreneur can be fickle. We will tell you that, like Zuckerberg, you should keep your eyes on the prize and once you have a price or a goal you shouldn’t budge, even if the offer sounds great. Then we would tell you that the entrepreneurial mindset embraces change. OK, so thank you Zuck for the entrepreneurial mindset rule number two. Embrace change, only when it meets your needs. Stand your ground confidently.

Donald Trump

This leads into the third entrepreneurial rule of thumb and our last example Donald Trump. This is one of the most famous real estate moguls we have in the world with a net worth of 4 billion dollars as of September of 2014. He has the first two rules pretty down pat and more. He listens to his gut and not to much more. So, you’re thinking, he has years of experience on me, of course he can trust his gut! Not a thing to do with it. Yes experience is always good but entrepreneurs are fresh and new and out there with young blood and boundless energy —that is—if you want to be successful.

So, you need to get out of your own way! You can take advice but do it the way Darling Donald would, only from those you respect! If your gut tells you a startup is going to be a success and you don’t stop your first thought with fear then it will succeed and if it is your first one, make sure you are starting small so you can get out quick. Remember entrepreneurial mindset rule two— embrace change when it meets your needs.

Following your gut is one of the most important rule that Donald has followed consistently through his entrepreneurial career. He has also embraced diversity in his businesses. He is into everything from wealth creation systems to vitamin supplements and much more than his mainstay, real estate.

His other trait is tenacity. And I quote him as stating, “Anyone who thinks my story is even close to over is sadly mistaken. This is a mindset from a man who learned from an old school generation. But he emerged from that a cutting edge entrepreneur when he developed the mindset that he can be involved in more than one venture whether or not they are all a shining success.

freelance

And not all of these ventures have been. But, he made them work for him and his bottom line and he also understands that these are learning experiences. You are probably thinking, “He’s still learning”? Oh yes and that my friends is another mindset to really sink your teeth into.

There is never a time that you stop learning as an entrepreneur. You see, try to get this before we move on because it’s one of the most important parts of this book. Entrepreneurship is ever changing. The only thing evergreen about entrepreneurship is change—that’s it. Of you don’t learn what the trends are then you fail—simple as that. This is why we are lending the wisdom of the mindsets of the great entrepreneurs of our time and before. Because they have mastered this understanding. So another warm thank you from Donald Trump for providing the entrepreneurial mindset number three: Go with your gut and take advice, only from those you respect. Allow yourself to be diverse in your business dealings without fear of failure.

7 Tools That I Use To Grow My Business

People often ask me what kind of tools I use to build and grow my business and how they can take their business to the next level.

Having the right tools can help you to grow your company while also saving you so much time. When I find a new time-saving tool I always think about how much time I could have saved if I had found this tool earlier.

You don’t have to think that because I will be saving you all the time by listing the best time saving tools that will help you grow your business and take your business to the next level.

Most of the tools I have listed in this article are free while some may have free trial. These are some of the tools I use to grow my business.

Tools I Use To Grow My Business

ThingLink

This is an exceptional and revolutionary tool that helps you make your images interactive. You can add text, links, video or audio overlays to any of your photos or images and it is completely interactive.
Users simply hover over the icon on the image to watch a video, listen to audio or go to a link. There is a free plan on Thinglink but it has the Thinglink branding however if you wanted a pro plan prices start from $10/month, which is pretty cheap for what you’re getting.

tools to grow your business
It’s pretty awesome and some pretty big organisations such as Discovery Communications and CBS Interactive are already using it. Currently we are not using it on The Marketing Guy but in future we may do.

Piktochart

Infographics are an amazing way to tell a story or present some statistics. It is way better than a presentation and readers consume the data much easier.

Sometimes creating your own infographics can be hard but Piktochart makes it easy. With its easy drag and drop interface and colourful graphics and icons, it’s a piece of cake to create infographics. You can also easily adjust the text size and colour in an instant.

People love infographics and they love to share them among their friends and colleagues as well. They are a quick way to share alot of information and make hard to understand information digestible.

I use Piktochart to design beautiful graphs and make information more easier to understand and to break it down for my audience. Infographs can easily go viral and if your infograph does go viral, a good percentage of that traffic will go back to your website. I use this tool to help me grow my business

E.ggtimer

A very handy and convenient countdown timer. When you time yourself to do a certain task you are more likely to get it done. It just gives you an extra boost and allows you to work more efficiently.tools to grow your business

You can set your own time and the countdown will begin on e.ggtimer. You can also select the preselected timers.

I use eggTimer to help me to stay on task. It is so helpful and with this tool I use a Pomodoro timer which is 25 minutes of work followed by 5 minutes of a break. This is one of my favorite tools to use and aids me in getting work done. In fact I am using this technique while writing up this article!

Evernote

This is my favourite tool to use for productivity. It helps me keep me on top of my game. I can just write up notes on Evernote and save them straight onto here. I can also use it for a number of other things such as collecting stuff and things from the internet and saving them on Evernote. I can easily organise my notes and all the stuff that is important to me.

It is compatible with all major platforms such as Windows 8, Android and iOS. It syncs effortlessly on all devices. It is free to download and use and is only £4 a month for the premium version.

Evernote is like my best friend when it comes to organising myself. I write any idea I get on Evernote. If I get a business idea,  mobile app/game or anything else, I just write it down in this app. I also use Evernote to put in write down my morning ritual so that I don’t forget what to do every morning.

I also use the app to improve my productivity by using in for checklists. I write down whatever I have to do during the day and just tick off whatever I have done. So for example, I might have send email to developer and write an article on my list and just tick it off whenever I have done the certain task.

Canva

Canva is a lifesaver. It is a graphic design tool which allows you to quickly design banners, Facebook/Twitter cover images, artwork, presentation slides and anything else. This tool is so easy and simple to use even my 2 year old nephew could use it.

Canva also has an iPad app that has full access to its design tools and library of images. It is very simple to use and you can create a beautiful image in minutes. It is also available to download for the Chrome Store.

This is a great tool and helps me to grow my business.

PicMonkey

This is another stunning free online graphic design tool allows you to make professional modifications to your images without the expensive costs. You can easily touch up your images including teeth whitening, red eye reduction, weight loss and much more. The best thing is you do not have to be a professional to do any of this.

PicMonkey is very easy to do and you can perform things like teeth whitening on pictures with the click of a button

4 Marketing Strategies That Will Increase Your Traffic

From the start-up entrepreneurs to the veterans that have been around for years, no one is going to say no to getting more traffic to their site. Some companies will tell you that you have to spend thousands on advertising. But we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to spend a lot.

Check out these 4 marketing strategies that are going to give your website a major boost in traffic.

  1. Spend your attention on site load times

Did you know a 2010 study from Akamai Technologies uncovered that about 57% of shoppers waited only 3 seconds before they decided to call it quits on a site? That means if your site doesn’t give the customer what he or she wants within 3 seconds, that person is going to go elsewhere.

Doesn’t offer much comfort, does it?

It’s about to get worse. With so many updated technologies budding every day, about 65% of people from the age range from 18 to 24 years old said they expect a website to load within 2 seconds.

That leaves virtually no room for any kind of error.

This also means you want to improve your website load times. You have a few different options, such as optimization and going with a content deliver network (CDN). A CDN is going to help customers get your content faster and easier. And as a major plus, it only takes a few minutes to install. You have a few different options when it comes to systems, and most of them are pretty affordable.

If you want to check how fast your website is, check out Google PageSpeed Insights, Pingdom Tools and GTmetrix. With each system, you will get a grade on the way your site is performing and running, which will clue you in on whether you need to step it up a lot or just fix a few loopholes.

  1. Get some meta tags

If you aren’t sure what a meta tag is, you’re already behind. Meta tags are pieces of coding that play a huge role in your marketing. There are two pieces to this – the page title and the meta description. For the title, keep it under 70 characters and make this individual for each page. For example, for your ‘Products & Services’ page, you would want to write [Your Company’s Name] | Products & Services.

As for the meta description, this should be under 160 characters. Why? Because you want to make sure the entire thing shows up in search engines, so customers and potential customers can get a piece of your business and decide to move forward. This should be a general overview of what’s on the web page. The better the meta description is (as in, the more detailed), the higher likelihood of someone clicking on your page.

  1. Make your website mobile-friendly

How many people do you think use their cell phone during the day? That number is increasing every single day – and you have to keep up with that.

In fact, according to ComScore, 73 million Americans get access to the web through their mobile browser.

marketing strategies

And you want to make sure you’re catering to that audience, especially since it’s a growing number.  Having a mobile-friendly website is going to open up a ton of possibilities, including different advertising chances, better SEO, and an overall superior user experience (giving you a one up from your competitors).

  1. Get rid of all double content

When you head over to a website, and you see the same information on there more than once, what do you think? Some people think it’s the business being too pushy. Other people think it is a sign of being sloppy, as repeated content is taken as a mistake.

And the hits just keep on coming. Google actually punishes you when you have the same info on your website. Here’s how it works – when you have the same information on your site, it’s going to reflect back on the search results. Your site isn’t going to come up as quickly as others, which is going to push you down toward the bottom and cut back on website traffic.

There are a couple of different systems you can use to help you pick out the duplicated content on your website. This includes systems such as Xenu and Google Webmaster Tools. Or, take a few minutes out of your day to read through your website thoroughly. Odds are, you will find a few duplicated pieces you might have added without realizing it.

That is 4 marketing strategies that you can use to increase your traffic. Start implementing these tips into your site and you will get more traffic.

Utilize All the Tools You Can. There’s, truly, several instruments on the web to build your productivity. Utilizing your time smartly makes life less upsetting, and gives you a chance to accomplish all the more in a day. Lifehacker is a great web journal to peruse in case you’re searching for devices and traps to spare time and make life less demanding.

Try not to Hesitate to Outsource You can’t do everything. It’s comprehended that there’s just 24 hours in the day and you have to rest eventually. Unwinding that should be in control of everything is a decent step towards development. By outsourcing some work you invest your energy doing things that are more imperative, and ideally, what you’re great at.

  1. Reward Yourself

At whatever point you achieve another breakthrough or completion your noteworthy assignments, reward yourself. Whether it is 30 minutes of Twitter time or that cake you’ve been peering toward, you merit it for completing your work.

By what means can a correspondent reach you on the off chance that I can’t discover your contact information any place? Where do I email you? Could I call you? What in the event that I was a client that needed to purchase your item, or a potential new customer? Being anything but difficult to contact implies less passed up a great opportunity opportunities.

Interface with People Online Just like being anything but difficult to reach is essential, so is interfacing with individuals. My two most loved locales to utilize are LinkedIn and Twitter. Keep in mind to associate with me there.

Create Actionable Schedules. Every week I create a rundown of things I need to wrap up. Everything is something that can be done, and measured. (Not something like be a superior individual, in spite of the fact that that’s generally a smart thought) Be mindful so as not to over-burden your schedule. The thought is to create a situated of errands you know you can wrap up.

muhammad ali quote

  1. Settle on Smart Decisions

Take the time to learn all that you can before settling on a choice. Information is power, and having all the information prompts less oversights.

  1. Try not to Be Overly Risky

Going for broke is doltish, going for broke is shrewd. You can’t develop your organization without going for broke; it’s a vital piece of business. You can, nonetheless, minimize the quantity of awful dangers you take by verifying you completely comprehend what you’re doing.

6. Freebies

Who doesn’t LOVE freebies? I know I do! A couple of months back, as per Exact Target, 36% of buyers likes a fan page to get a freebie or a specimen.

Here is an individual story, a couple of weeks back; I was scanning for Photoshop activities to help me enhance my photocopying abilities. A Photoshop activity is ‘preset altering’ and one can just snap a catch to have a photograph altered by settings.

I then unearthed Paint the Moon site and soon found that they were doling out free Photoshop activities for the individuals who like their Facebook page. It didn’t take me long to go onto their page to like their page to download the freebie.

Today, I’m an immense fanatic of their item. I’m utilizing the Photoshop activity and am now considering buying their accumulations to take my Photoshop aptitude to the following level. Not just am I a massively grateful potential client, I am additionally an important group of onlookers that is likely to come back to their page to process their updates.

7. Use Promoted Posts

Keep in mind the maxim ‘people with similarities tend to form little niches’? Elevated presents are utilized on target individuals of comparable interest that are joined with you. It can be exceptionally compelling for businesses in the event that they utilize it astutely.

Businesses need to have a finished objective that would help develop your business. Advanced posts can be seen as a ‘vote of certainty’ from yourself to your loved ones – as it were you’re letting them know that you have believed the post and they ought to do likewise to.

8. Utilization advanced posts when:

  • You’re doling out something valuable that fans will like and they will tell their companions.
  • Running social networking challenges. Fans loves challenge and advancing it would help get the virility you have to spread your challenge as well as your image mindfulness.
  • You’re hoping to catch more messages for your mailing rundown.

 

Those are five basic yet successful routines that can be utilized to help you develop your page and your business with Facebook. A standout amongst the most vital tips is to make sense of how you can be a piece of the conversation on Facebook rather than simply transforming your page into a promotional feed.

9. Facebook Contest

A challenge is another great way to develop fans and develop your business on Facebook. What is the contrast between a freebie and a challenge? Indeed, a freebie can comprise of lower-quality things, for example, one Photoshop activity from a whole gathering – generally to simply give them a feeling of what they would be purchasing. A Facebook challenge could really win them something enormous, maybe the whole gathering or a private consultation with their in-house originators.

The motivation behind why challenges work is on the grounds that they help develop fans on a page, as well as it serves to develop email leads as well. Most Facebook outsider challenge applications like Binkd accompanies an email catch frame that would should be finished before fans can participate.

take your business to the next level

Two years prior, my sweetheart began Leneys, an e-trade ladies’ attire store. To help give a support to her Facebook page, she facilitated a Facebook challenge doling out some of her attire. The challenge did as such well; it attracted more than 2,000 fans. Today, it has more than 22,000 fans and many of them whom participated in the challenge got to be steadfast clients until today.

10. Content

I’m certain you’ve known about the idiom ‘quality written substance is all that matters’. That is just halfway genuine and, as I would see it, substance and group needs to coincide.

In the event that you need to develop your business with Facebook, you must be continually including quality and engagement your page. Great substance would absolutely help you to do that, however great substance is squandered and ineffectual in the event that you don’t have a strong group to show your substance to.

Begin by growing a group before you begin advancing. The motivation to do as such is on account of you need to fabricate trust inside of your group, and your group need to trust that you would telecast valuable substance that will increase the value of them. Individuals will just purchase from you when they have believed your business.

11. Discounts

A markdown is another way to grow a business with Facebook. As per the same study by Exact Target, 40% of clients like a page to get a markdown.

Here are two or three methodologies when doling out rebates:

a.) Like a page to get markdown

The easiest would be requesting that somebody like a page so as to get a concealed markdown code that they can utilize when they pay at your nearby store or pay when they checkout from an online store.

b.) Like an item for rebate

This one is marginally distinctive, unlike prior, it obliges somebody to like an item to get a rebate. To illustrate it better, here is a sample by For Human Peoples, a shirt and notice organization.

As should be obvious, when somebody taps the like catch, they get a code for a 5% rebate. When they do, not just will they get a 5% rebate, little doubt remains on their profile as well.

4 Things I Learned From Over 200 Orders On Fiverr

Fiverr is a good way to make money. In case you don’t know what Fiverr is it is a website which you can offer anything to potential buyers for $5. This can include anything from a service or even sending a physical product. When I mean you can sell anything, I mean anything. Check out this gig and this gig.

I have been selling on Fiverr for quite a while now and to date I have made 257 sales. Obviously not all these orders were for $5 and with the addition of extras I may have made more on each order.

If you are new to Fiverr and want to make money on Fiverr but you don’t know where to get started I recommend you check out this article that shows you some easy gigs you can start right away. As well as that you should check out this article on promoting your gigs the right way.

From my time selling on selling on Fiverr I have learnt a lot of things on how you can have a thriving business and what you can do to earn more money in your business. In this article I will share with you the various things I learned by making over 200 sales on Fiverr. I will show you how I make money on Fiverr.

The number of orders I have done so far and the average selling price of my gigs

 

1. Provide Value

The number one thing you should be doing when selling on Fiverr is providing value. Actually you should be doing that in any business. And you shouldn’t just be providing value, ideally you should be over delivering.

If you over-deliver the customer will be over the moon and they would be likely to recommend you to other people and come back to you again to order from you again. This is the number one thing you should be doing if you want to make money on Fiverr.

The thing I normally do is that I either give them a free bonus which can be in the form of a free ebook, report or checklist or I either deliver it to them much quicker than the estimated delivery date. You can even do both, your customers will surely be delighted.

You could also offer a money back guarantee if your customer does not like the final product.

2. Never EVER Deliver Your Orders Late

Don’t deliver your orders late. I learned the hard way. People on Fiverr like punctuality on their orders and want them for when you say you will deliver them for.

If you have a legitimate reason to deliver the order late like your dog died or your goldfish got flushed down the toilet then fair enough. You can email your customer and explain to him. I’m sure they would understand if your goldfish got flushed down the toilet. But if you don’t have a proper reason then deliver your order before time.

Don’t make it into a routine of delivering your customers orders late. Otherwise it will come to bite you back in the ***. You will get negative ratings and once the negative ratings start to add up you will notice that your sales will drop.

According to Fiverr if you deliver a gig late it can result in 10% lower buyer activity. This can be because buyers start to lose trust in you. If you are struggling to meet deadlines you can always change the delivery times to suit you.

3. Keep it Simple

Make it easy for your customer to understand what they will be getting and what they will need to do and what you will be needing from them. For instance if you have a gig that offers custom logos, you will probably be needing the customers business name, what colours they want to use in their logo and what style they want. Make it clear for the customer so they can understand.

Don’t use over complicated words or jargon to explain your gig. Simplify your gig description to let them know what the customer will be getting, what your gig extras do and how long your average delivery time is (remember over deliver).

Another good thing that I do is when I am delivering the customers order, in the delivery message I put check out my other gigs as well as asking them to subscribe to my email list. You can put anything else such as asking them to like you on Facebook, follow you on Twitter or leave a positive review.

 4. Offer Discounts

Discounts enable you take your business and your gig sales to the next level. For example you can if you sell custom ebook covers, you can put an offer together that if your customers buy 3 covers they get the 4th for free.

This will not only increase sales but will also help with conversations, customer retention and loyalty. Your customers will keep on coming back to you and they will recommend you to their friends and others. Just remember the first rule. Provide value and over deliver.
