1 Key to Blogging Happiness and Success

Published

on

In today’s heavily charged political climate you may want to debate, outright fight or criticize people on social media.

Maybe the news seems to magically draw you in to negative, toxic headlines.

I have a little secret that keeps me happy most of the time.

Goodness knows following this secret promoted my blogging success.

The secret: I see fighting as fear so I do not get caught up in kicking a dog when it’s down.

This is code for: I largely do not engage fearful, unhappy folks. If I do engage said folks, rest assured the chats last for a few seconds, if that.

Why Doing this Makes You a Happy and Successful Blogger

Avoiding unhappy people automatically makes you happier because nature abhors a vacuum. Ignore fear. Ignore unhappiness. Loving, happy people move into your life since love is the opposite of fear and happiness is the opposite of unhappiness. Many of these happy, successful people will be clients, customers and rocking bloggers who promote you and endorse you.

Ignoring folks having a moment, or perhaps, having a tough life just allows them to find their balance on their own. You are a leader, not a savior.

If a trusted friend is going through a difficult time you can be a sounding board for a bit. No worries there. But even this sounding board stage has its limits and you eventually need to move on to allow these folks to find clarity and peace on their own. This benefits both parties.

Happiness and Success Is an Energy Thing

Folks wonder why I smile in most of my travel pictures. I smile because I am predominantly happy. I am predominantly happy because I see fighting as fear, and I do not kick a dog when it’s down, meaning I do not engage, chat with or try to convince fear-filled, fighting folks on social media, through my blog and through my email.

I do this because I have compassion for these fear-filled folks. Especially for fear-filled folks who fight about politics, religion or whatever topic these individuals are unclear on.

Typically, most of these fear-filled, unclear folks find other fear-filled, unclear folks to complain to, and they all agree in their fear and lack of clarity, and disguise their fear as passion or a love of their political party, or whatever sounds good, to soothe their bruised egos, and their unclear, fear-filled minds. Either way, the dog is down, and since I was once in the same position is life, I ain’t kicking.

Following this practice has dramatically raised my energy from fear to love. Raising my predominant vibe from fear to love has helped me be in harmony with the world, which made me:

  • generous
  • prolific
  • helpful
  • an energetic networker

Taking on these qualities accelerated my blogging success and grew my happiness, because happy, successful bloggers are generous, prolific, helpful and energetic networkers.

But you need to move up the energetic ladder to embody these traits and that involves leaving those fear-filled, unclear folks near the bottom of the ladder. Even if they appear to be successful, blogging business wise, rest assured that their political or religious fight is fear, manifest.

You can still be connected with them and chat casually here and there about blogging or other topics where they vibe love, not fear, but you will be leaving many of these folks behind until they face, embrace and release their deeper fears, to vibe more from love and clarity, so they can join you on higher rungs of the energetic ladder.

Surround Yourself with Loving, Generous Bloggers

Loving, kind, generous bloggers promote your blogging success by showing you the way.

These folks also lift your spirits, making you a happier blogger.

Seek them out. Promote successful bloggers. Comment on their blogs.

Be happier, healthier and wealthier.

How to Begin Your Blogging Journey the Right Way

Published

on

Starting a blog is fun, freeing and scary.

This trio of emotions terrifies most aspiring bloggers. Everybody loves having fun. But doing freeing, highly uncomfortable (aka scary) things makes you tremble sometimes.

I feared beginning a blog 10 years ago. What did I know? Who would believe me? I was a fired security guard. I had no blogging knowledge.

Lo and behold, after someone told me to buy something called a domain and hosting I chose to become a professional blogger.

10 years later I have:

  • circled the globe through blogging
  • appeared on world famous sites like Virgin, Fox News, Entrepreneur and Forbes
  • taught a growing number of people how to become successful bloggers

Follow these tips to begin your blogging career the right way.

1: Buy Your Domain and Hosting

Thank goodness I did this right.

Buy your domain and hosting guys. Own your blogging real estate. Brand yourself effectively. Monetize your blog effectively too.

Never blog on a free platform; you can get shut down at any time for any reason. Plus readers rarely trust free platform bloggers because if you cannot afford 10-20 bucks a month to convey a professional image, how can you be a serious blogger?

2: Follow a Blogging Mentor

Follow a top blogging tips mentor to get good blogging advice.

Any experienced, professional blogger hellbent on teaching readers how to create helpful content and how to build strong connections with top bloggers is worth a follow.

I’d pick 1-2 blogging mentors, tops. Avoid confusing yourself.

Pro bloggers became pro bloggers by following pro blogger advice.

3: Invest in a Good Blogging Course or eBook

I offer you an eBook on how to become a professional blogger:

How to Retire to a Life of Island Hopping through Smart Blogging

I also offer online courses to help you become a full time blogger.

Pay your blogging tuition. Invest money in your blogging education.

Imagine if you tried to learn how to become a full time blogger by reading blog posts alone? Madness. Piece meal learning is an exercise in futility. Far easier to buy an eBook that lays out, step by step, how to become a professional blogger.

You do not spend money on your blogging tuition. You invest money on your blogging education now to make more money later.

4: Invest Money in a Premium Theme

Free themes look cheap.

Cheap-looking themes scare off potential readers.

Invest money in a premium theme to impress readers.

Leap frog cheap new bloggers by dropping dough on a clear, professional-looking, premium theme.

Readers judge a blog by its cover, then by its content. Reel in folks with your eye-catching theme.

5: Blog Mainly to Have Fun

Since money ain’t flowing in for a while anyway it makes sense to blog mainly for fun.

Enjoy the process of:

  • learning how to blog
  • practicing your blogging skills
  • creating helpful content
  • building strong connections with bloggers

Lay a rock solid foundation for a thriving blogging career. Have fun helping people through your blog. Money eventually flows to free giving, generous bloggers.

6: Embrace this Truth

Blogging is a skill.

Just like being a doctor or lawyer is a skill, blogging is a skill you need learn, practice and hone over years.

Doctors and lawyers do not take off weeks or months from being a doctor or lawyer during their learning years. Every day counts, with hours of study and practice. Each puts in serious time to master their skill. Ditto for aspiring pro bloggers.

Begin your blogging journey by being all in. Commit 100% to the prior tips. Struggling newbie bloggers often blog in fits and starts, taking off days or weeks or months between blog posts and networking. Big mistake. You need to be ALL IN from Day 1 if you want to succeed with blogging.

Wrap Up

Follow these steps guys.

Begin your blogging career on the right foot.

How to Start an Online Real Estate Business With These 5 Simple Tips

mm

Published

on

In 2018, experts expect 5.5 million homes to be sold in the United States. Real estate agents will sell most of these homes. This is a huge market for anyone looking to get into the real estate space — whether that be for actual realtors, home-realty websites and services, or even bloggers and affiliate marketers that might have the audience and skills to tap into this space as well.

Starting a real estate business isn’t as easy as we may think. But, if you educate yourself and develop the right plan your business will skyrocket in no time. At the same time, the more we think out of the box, the easier it might be to gain an audience online. For example, how many people are looking online for home selling tips before listing their property? There are thousands of blogs already focused on this topic and generating thousands of dollars every month in the process.

Not sure how to start a real estate business? Don’t worry. We’ll discuss four simple tips to build your successful real estate empire today.

How to Start a Real Estate Business: Four Simple Tips to Build Your Empire

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Building a successful real estate takes time and hard work. But, if you take the right approach starting your own real estate business will be easier than you think.

Here are four tips to start your real estate business the right way:

1. Think like an Entrepreneur

Many people think real estate works like any business. Yet, starting a real estate business requires a mindset. To be successful in real estate thinking like an entrepreneur is a must.

It’s important to develop a vision for your business. Who is your prospective client? Are you going to cater to a niche?

In addition to thinking like a realtor and a legitimate business, you will also want to have a professional brand and logo design. You can see some example of other realty brands and logo identities here.

When creating a design of your own, feel free to get creative, but to also keep a simplistic and professional feel in the process.

2. Create Your Realtor Business Plan

If you want your business to stand out, you must create a business plan tailored to your vision. As a business owner, you have to consider A to Z about your business. How will you bring clients on board?

What is your marketing budget? Are you going to specialize in residential or commercial properties? These are some of the questions you may consider when developing your real estate agent plan.

Remember your realtor business plan will be the foundation of your business. Make sure you cover all your bases and not leave something for later.

3. Develop Your Branding Plan

You might think that a realtor doesn’t need to develop a brand. Yet, it’s a necessity in real estate. Your brand will separate you from your competitors.

If you want to start a long-term business that keeps growing, you must invest in your marketing. Tell your prospective customers why they should choose you as their agent.

Today, the internet and social media are great low-cost tools to establish your brand. Companies such as Uber have harnessed the power of branding to skyrocket their business.

4. Recruit the Right Talent

At first, you might run your real estate business solo. But, if you develop the right plan for your market your business might grow faster than expected. All your employees must fit your company culture and vision.

When you recruit a new employee, you should hire team players that bring value to your business. It doesn’t matter if it’s your office manager or a new real estate agent. All employees are essential to the success of your real estate business.

5. Connect with Other Industry Sites

With billions of websites and blogs already on the internet today, there is no need to re-invent the wheel when it comes to realty.

Take a look at any of the top luxury home blogs online, and you will find that most of them cater directly to their audience — many of which are either high-end or very niche specific. This also includes location and pricing of homes for sale and what buyers are looking for. In addition to using these niche home sites for ideas, you can also use them ad media outlets and marketing tools. Such methods can include realtor interviews, expert tips, guest posts and more.

Be sure to consider these options when building out your next online site, blog, or realty-focused business.

Bottom Line

Starting your own real estate business might seem more intimidating than you thought. But, educating yourself on how to start a real estate business is the first step toward success. If you develop the right realtor business plan, brand, and work hard, your business will skyrocket in no time.

Now that you’ve likely started to toss around a few ideas on now you could start an internet-based realty business, it’s time to put all of those thoughts and ideas into action! You must take the right measures to protect all your hard work. Check out our article to learn how to do so, without needing to have a lot of investment money in the process.

Let’s face it, work in school and work outside of school are not even apples-to-apples in similarity.
