For The Sake of One

Most people would agree that they’d like to make a difference. This world is full of so much degradation, it’s hard to find the good things. Evil is rampant and people are hurt every day.

We all want change.

But with six billion people in this world (and quickly growing), we start thinking there’s no way.

There’s no way that I can change the world. There’s no way that people will listen to me. There’s no way I can make a difference…

It goes on, these thoughts in our minds.

There’s no way I can save a life. There’s no way I can do anything of significance. There’s no way anyone will notice.

You’re looking at the big picture, at the six billion. Of course there’s no way you’ll reach them all, or even half.

But how about a hundred? Fifty? Twenty? …. Even just one.

Reach out to the life standing next to you, the soul that you see every day. Look beyond yourself and see people- people who are hurting, who have griefs and sorrows mingled with dreams and joys. People who have memories and hopes, regrets and wishes.

Reach out to them. Learn their stories. Make a difference in just one life. And it will grow… one by one, that’s where it starts. And by changing just one, you have changed the world. The world is better for the sake of just one.

Change one life.

Intro to Business

 

 

Every Monday, I sit down with a woman who has a dream of one day owning her own cafe. This dream of hers is very specific- a place where you can come in, sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee at your leisure, where you can get caught up on work and friendships.

For this dream to become reality takes work. It also takes imagination for it to succeed. A business does not just come on its own out of the blue. It needs something to give it a push, to make it stand.

And that’s where I come in. I have been working from home for a few years now, and in that time, I have learned a lot on a lot of topics. Mostly, I have gained a lot of understanding about business.

For instance- we all know that marketing is important to a business, but did you know that a business plan must be heavily integrated with marketing? Did you know that even a work-from-home business often requires trips beyond your front door? Did you know you can start your own business with very little capital to work from?

Many myths abound about home and small businesses. I aim to dash these myths into the ground and supply you with real, honest information. I’ll share tips on how to get started and keep it running. I will show you the importance of technology and how you can use it for your own business. I’ll reveal the truth behind the glory and I’ll point out mistakes that you can avoid.

This is MY dream. I want to help others achieve success- not in getting rich, because I am far from it myself, but the true success of building your own dream and doing what you love.

* Just as for this lady I mentioned, I also do provide one-on-one consulting. Find me on my “Contact” page and send an email for help in getting started or for help with an already established business, or if you just would like some personal tips for your business. Consulting rates are personalized based on the established level of the business and your personal ability to pay, and only AFTER a personal consultation about it.
