Ok, So My Twitter Account is Suspended.

My daily communication is shared on Twitter and Facebook. I may blog, send emails a couple of times a week. Daily I use Twitter and Facebook. Mainly Twitter. I had close to some nine thousand five hundred some followers. Now my account is suspended. I don't know why.

Daily when I communicate, I share links, news, resources that I come across, information, opinion on business related subjects, being your own boss, career, travel, health, the American Dream, success and much more. That is what I do. Provide information that will help you handle your business better. I love to reach out and share with you daily. After fifty five years of on the job experience, I feel like I have something to share. Wisdom, pain, experience, hope.

What It Takes To Succeed In Business!

Depending on who you listen to, there are somewhere between 120
million and 150 million entrepreneurs working from home. Again,
depending on where you get your statistics from, a staggering 94-96%
of those home-based business owners will not succeed with their
enterprise. These figures are troubling for those of us who have
achieved success in this amazing industry. Is there a hidden success
formula that only a select few stumble upon?

For some time now, we have been wondering, "Why is it that some home
business owners experience such fantastic results and others struggle
to even get their business off the ground?" We have studied the
industry and compiled a short list of major characteristics that
determine success.

en·tre·pre·neur [ahn-truh-pruh-nur, -noor] a person who organizes and
manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with
considerable initiative and risk.

Fortunately for home-based Internet Entrepreneurs, we can minimize the
risk as long as we maximize the initiative. We do want to preface this
list with the following disclaimer - we have seen all types of
individuals, from all walks of life, with all different backgrounds
and skill sets succeed in their chosen home business. the 2 most
important things that determine your success will be:

1. Persistent Commitment - this can best be described by the following
sports cliché, "Refuse to lose." The most successful people in this
business are not always the most talented, they are those who just
never give up. This attitude starts with the belief in yourself, your
team, and the industry. You can be certain that you will face
challenges on the path to success, how you react to them will
determine your fate. You must have the dedication and drive to make it
work ... no matter what!

2. Productive Action - the best planning and systems will do you no
good without consistent AND productive action. You can have the most
compelling websites, state-of-the-art Flash movies, and fantastic
emails ... but if nobody sees them you are simply spinning your
wheels. It all comes back to the famous question, "If a tree falls in
the forest, and no one is there, does it make a sound?" Your websites
and business will be like that forgotten tree if you don't
consistently take action and drive traffic to your site(s).

* Optimism – eternal optimism is the fuel that can drive you to
dizzying heights, especially when you encounter frequent challenges.
Those who view challenges as just another test and focus on the
solution typically succeed. If every home business owner threw in the
towel when they encountered challenges, we wouldn't have any home
business owners. Always see the glass as half full, make that full
(half with water, half with air) and you have given yourself a great
chance to reach the top.

* Consistency – the top people in any field always practice their
craft. Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and Pele did not rise to the top
of their respective sports by practicing when they felt like it.
Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand did not become megastars by
showing up for rehearsals when they were in the mood. They decided
what they wanted and consistently worked at it. The same is true with
your home business.

* Energy – couch potatoes rarely become proficient at anything other
than the remote control. Successful home business owners are willing
to do whatever it takes to reach to the finish line. They understand
that balancing their life is also important, so they must have the
energy to drive their business and also spend quality time with family
and friends. Working overtime is not uncommon on your way to the top.

The wonderful thing about a home Internet business is it provides a
level playing field. Anybody can succeed, as long as they are willing
to grow, learn, and do what's necessary. When push comes to shove,
most people simply aren't willing to do what it takes. Are you? If so
... Think BIG. Act BIG. Make your business dreams come true.
