Here I want to talk to you about how to prepare yourself mentally for your new journey which is creating a new successful online business. If you are new to online marketing, this Topic is for you and I am sure that you will find it very useful. I know how confusing can be on the first week, so by now you should have already made up the decision to do everything possible to start creating a successful online business from scratch. I will like to mention again that if you follow each and every step on my Online Business Blog? There is “No possible way that you can fail” and you will only see positive results. Remember! This is your Business so treat it like a Business ok? When it is work time, it is work time and nobody should be bothering you when you are at work!. Invest at least a minimum of 3 to 4 hours a day to start on your Business and work at least 5 days a week on it! Remember that if you slack? your Business will slack and the Sales will slack as well, so take this very seriously as any small Business Owner out there do because you never know if this is going to be what changes your life and be on your way to Financial Freedom!. So once again, take this very seriously and do not listen to anyone that tries to tell you that it doesn’t work or anything negative about you wanting to have a successful Business, so stay strong minded and focus! Then you cannot go wrong, below I will show you a few steps on where to start.What you want to do first is set everything up and get yourself mentally ready to start your new online business. Next I want you to read some of my Articles located here on this site, that will motivate you to start and get on the road. Once you have done that go visit the “Online Business Success=” Page and start reading and following every single step that you see on that page. This page is based on 100% every single step that I took myself 2 years ago when I didn’t even have a website to start and only had a little of money in my pockets. All this that I teach on that page is also everything that my mentors taught me and I have to tell you that they work, work, work! So please make sure to follow everything and make sure that you have the proper materials to begin like a Website or Blog & a Domain Name of your own, a PayPal account, a good Product that Sells, a Landing Page or Lead Capture Page to start building your leads and prospects, setting up your very own email account, getting a good Autoresponder to automatically send emails to your prospects, a free Keyword Research Tool and some other basic but very important Tools that will only start getting you results fast and greatly help you generate leads. Everything will be explained in details on that Page and I am sure that you will enjoy all of the awesome information.”MINDSET” Now I want you to focus! Do not tell anybody about what you are doing, not even friends & family. Keep this to yourself and stay very positive, why? Because 1 negative comment from a friend or family member when you are starting is more mentally effective in a negative way, than 10 Good comments! And this is the true. So until you have something to show for, please keep it to yourself! And I tell you this by experience. Once you start making some money? Then you can start to tell them what you are trying to do in your online business. Trust me, at first it seems like nobody will ever find you, see your Articles or content and buy your product. But as soon as you get that 1 Sale, I guarantee that your eyes will open up and you will start to see the light. At this point I guarantee you that you will see your business in a whole different way and you will be extremely motivated in your business, and that is when you break all barriers. Always remember that there is no such thing as a get rich quick business “ABSOLUTELY NO WAY” and who ever tells you any different is lying to you! And you should stay away from. A successful online business is build from the ground up! And once it gets going and sales start to come in? It can only get better and it will only grow from there.”GOALS” These are the 5 Goals that you should focus on in order:1) Educating yourself with the proper information!

It is called “Think And Grow Rich By: Napoleon Hill” if you still haven’t read that book? I highly recommend that you read it on our spare time to stay mentally motivated and refreshed at all times.
Learn how to turn your technical presentations into engaging message-based presentations that get your boss’ attention and will cut your presentation time in halfTechnical ability alone will not help senior finance executive’s get promotedMany senior finance executives in China have risen the corporate ladder on the back of their solid technical ability and operational skills. They have been able to ride the massive growth in China over the past decade by combining a strong technical grasp and an aptitude to understand their client’s needs in compliance and financing.These senior executives are often held up as future country or regional Chief Financial Officers (CFOs). However, one significant obstacle awaits many finances executives – their strength in technical issues. Many senior finance executives are too focused on the details, the process and procedures. So when presenting to CEOs, board of directors or overseas directors, they are frustrated by their inability to get their point across without being bombarded by direct questions, interrupted constantly in their presentation and feeling of being harassed by senior management. While technical skills got them to where they are today, they can’t take them any further in their careers.It doesn’t have to be that way. They don’t need to be stuck here forever.Senior finance executives who can present effectively are highly marketablePresentations to senior management often cause nerves and tension in any presenter. Many technical presenters – especially in finance – are naturally introverted and when faced with A-type personalities they are often talked-over or easily interrupted. However, by learning some important skills in presentation creation and delivery, even shy and quiet presenters can learn how to get their point across to their CEO in a concise, crisp and engaging way. Importantly, their presentations can be delivered in a much shorter time – which both the senior finance executive and the CEO and directors appreciate! Having a reputation as a CFO who both understands the business and can deliver sharp presentations is a great asset to career promotion. Once learned, these skills deliver a fantastic return-on-investment year-in, year-out.So if you are currently stuck by delivering overly detailed technical presentations to a group of frustrated senior managers, you are not alone.Too much information often kills the effectiveness of your presentationIf any of the above sounds familiar, don’t worry, you are not alone. In fact, you are in good company. Most senior finance people have similar issues. Being technical experts means you are focused on process, procedure, the small nitty gritty details of data. All of which is essential – and desirable – in finance executives. However, when you reach the C-level, these technical skills become less important as the core task of an executive is to make decisions and communicate them throughout the organisation. All highly effective executives are superb communicators and presenters. Today, when hiring decisions are made on the CFO or CEO role -the ability to engage with internal and external stakeholders is one of the most important competencies.However, as a finance expert, you can’t be expected to automatically know what it takes to create message based presentations that engage your audience in the shortest possible time – you are not an advertising company. The good news is that help is here and you can learn these skills.Advice from The One Minute PresenterTo take a step away from being a technical expert and learning the craft of an effective executive communicator, you first need to understand taglines.What is a tagline?Taglines are short catchy marketing phrases which sum up the promise of a brand (or product or movie), and are designed to be memorable and easily passed through a target audience. A good tagline can stand the test of time and become synonymous with a company or product. The 1975-2005 “Don’t leave home without it” from American Express and the 1988 “Just do it” from Nike taglines show how the power of taglines can carry over into building the world’s most valuable brands.What is your tagline?Take a look at your next presentation. Use these steps to form your tagline:1. Write down your happy ending in 25-50 words.In other words what do you want to achieve at the end of the presentation. What do you want the audience to think, feel and do. Be as specific as you can.2. Take a break and come back to this paragraph.Highlight key words or phrases. Now imagine you only had time to deliver one sentence to your audience. Keep the value and meaning of your message. Rewrite it in 10 words or less.3. Put this aside for several hours or longer.Come back and see which words really sum up the essence of your message. Pick out your key words or phrases.For The One Minute Presenter, our nine word tagline is “successful business presentations for a short attention span world”. We use two key phrases: successful business presentations and short attention spans.You now have focus in your presentation. This will help you structure your presentation framework. You can check your supporting points, and choice of visuals (charts, graphs, statistics) against your key words. Ask yourself, “How does this support my key words?”With practice, you will be able to quickly get to your key words(s) in a shorter time. It will be a challenge the first few times you try this exercise. Stick with it. You need the focus to capture and engage today’s audiences. The clearer your message, the more effective your presentations.Be aware when you present your ideasMake your message tangible. Don’t make your audience work it out. If you make them think during a presentation, then while they are thinking, they cannot be listening to your subsequent words. Dr. John Medina, author of Brain Rules, vividly demonstrates how the human brain is ill equipped to handle two processing tasks simultaneously. “Driving while talking on a cell phone is worse than driving drunk.” This is because the human brain uses something called the attentional spotlight. The attentional spotlight, according to Dr. Medina, cannot multitask which means cellphone-talking car drivers have the same reaction time (when stopping) as a drunk driver. So don’t make your audiences think! Do the thinking for them. Know where you want to take them, shape a clear concept of your overall message, use stories to engage and bite-size your content with slogans, soundbites and taglines. Puzzles are great for long train and plane journeys, but not for successful business presentations.Many CFOs have benefited from The One Minute Presenter coachingI work with many CFOs from multinationals around Greater China. Just recently, after helping one senior executive to understand how to create a message-based presentation from their technical data, she told me that her presentation to the board of directors went much more smoothly and took less time than previous years. Importantly, she was interrupted much less with sharp questions. She is now able to apply these skills in other areas of her work, such as conference calls, client meetings and internal senior manager briefings.So what now?If you are ready to take a step up in your career, and want to learn how to be a more powerful communicator, then visit http://www.oneminutepresenter.com and download a free chapter on how The One Minute Presenter system works to help you develop more executive presence.
