Education. Regardless of your age, extra education and training are needed either for a career switch or self-improvement. A lot of people are taking college courses (even with teenagers) or upgrading to an MBA to climb the corporate ladder. Even if college education is out for you, you still have to plan for your children’s college degree, unless you intend to leave them to their own devices.

Learn how top marketers make it to be so successful and use some of these strategies for your business. When you are just starting out, a good rule to follow is never buy traffic unless it works.

An “opportunity” that really isn’t is no opportunity at all! So make sure your “once in a lifetime” opportunity lives up to its description before you join. You want to be certain that every window to become successful is wide open for you.

The key is to know how to use YouTube correctly. I just watched a webinar taught by Gregg Davison and learned a ton of how to promote my business the proper way. From being confident in front of the camera to the amount of videos you should put out. Whether you own an a chain of restaurants or have you own home business YouTube can be a powerful tool for you. The webinar I watched taught me how to get lots of my subscribers to my YouTube page. So imagine if you had a bunch of people that subscribed to watch commercials every time you put one out and that’s what its like only you get it for free.

The bottom line is unless you own the company; your job is temporary no matter how long you’ve held it, how hard you work at it, or how good you are at it. Only a management decision stands between you and the time clock and you and the breadline.
