Shelly asks, "What's the one thing that you feel helped to make your business successful?"
This is a fantastic question Shelly. I love it. So often we think that there's ONE thing, just one little magic, secret pill that all the successful bloggers have that we don't. If only WE had that secret magic pill, WE could be successful too.
My business is successful because of a lot of things. My faith in God. Point-blank, God convicted me to start a blog and I did. I worked hard and He made it successful. I had no idea I would be as successful as I am when I first started. But I did have years of training. I worked a decade in banking, so it's easy as pie to teach others to save money in ways that no one else can, because I was homeless. I know what it's like to have literally nothing and create a beautiful life from that place. It's easy for me to teach others how to make money from home in all different types of ways, network marketing, blogging, affiliate marketing, ebay, Craigslist, reselling, ecommerce, and more. Because I've BEEN selling for over 20 years.
The best thing you can do for your success is to use all your training, knowledge, wisdom, hard work, and most importantly, your skills. Create something around YOUR particular skill set. Like I mentioned, I'm good at selling and I'm good at saving money, so I teach that. What are you good at? Use those things to propel your business to the next level. Use those skills, that training to really make a blog that everyone will love. Embrace your strengths. Get to know your strengths. That's the beginning of a beautiful and viable business. :)
