The Slight Edge Success Principles

The Slight Edge Success Principles

The Slight EdgeThe Slight Edge Success Principles : Each day, we make a multitude of what seem to be “tiny, insignificant” decisions.  However, those decisions compounded over days, months, years and even decades define the quality of your life and if applied correctly, to your entrereneurial success

It was one of the first books we read as we entered the world of personal development back in 2005 and later re-read when we became entrepreneurs as we shared in our post The First Entrepreneur Books We Read

Now we’re reading The Slight Edge again as we prepare for a keynote presentation in Reno Nevada where we will be speaking in front of a room of online entrepreneurs and share how we use the slight edge success principles in our business…EVERY DAY

Easy to do? NO  Easy Not to do? YES  Does it make a difference?  Of course it does!

The Slight Edge Success PrinciplesThe Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choics that will lead you to success and the achievement of your goals in life.  It’s the difference between those who make dream after dream come true while others just continue dreaming and often times spend their lives building dreams for someone else (that was what we were doing in our management consultancy business and most people do as employees)

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Meaning you have complete control over the direction that the rest of your life takes!

YOU >> CHOICE + BEHAVIOUR + HABIT + COMPOUNDED = GOALS

Where choice is a decision you make.  Behaviour is an action you take and Habit is the repeated action and Compounded is time

But here’s the rub!  YOU can adjust your attitude by getting inspired but that’s never going to be enough.  YOU need a positive SLIGHT EDGE philosophy – thats the one that creates your attitdes, which creates your results, which creates your life.

We could go on but honestly you will get great value from reading (and/or listening) to The Slight Edge

Here’s some of our favourite quotes from The Slight Edge

“What I came to realize is that the information about how to become successful has always been readily available, but if the person absorbing that information doesn’t have the right philosophy to apply it the right way, success will elude their grasp.”

“If you don’t change your thinking, no amount of how-to’s will offer a real solution.  It’s not the ‘hows’ it’s how you do the ‘hows'”

“Focusing on the actions is not enough, because it’s the attitude behind the actions that keeps those actions in place.”

“Your philosophy is your view of life, something beyond feelings and attitudes.  Your philosophy drives your attitudes and feelings, which drive your actions.”

“That the things you do every single day, the things that don’t look dramatic, that don’t even look like they matter, do matter.  That they not only make a difference – they make all the difference.”

“Everything you need to do to transform your life is easy to do.  Simple little disciplines that, done consistently over time, will add up to the very biggest accomplishments.”

“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”

“It’s never too late to start.  It’s always too late to wait.”

“A simple, positive action.  A simple error in judgement.  Either way, it’s the Slight Edge at work – working for you or working against you.”

How To Create A Future Proof Business

How To Create A Future Proof Business

How To Create A Future Proof BusinessHow To Create A Future Proof Business : The truth of the matter is that the world of business is changing.  We’ve seen it over the past 9 years that we have been running our online business.

Wheareas at one time you could write a post on social media with a link to your business and make a sale now things are very different.

If you know how to create a future proof business then you can take advantage of the ever evolving landscape and be well placed to reap the benefits?

We just got back from a mastermind in Orlando and what we learned from Rich Shefren (Strategic Profits) has more than reinforced that we are on the right track and that you must absolutely future proof your business.  He says…

“In the past 6 months I’ve talked to over a hundred experts in the fields of predictive analytics, machine learning, buying and selling data, growth hacking, online advertising, social media marketing, email marketing, and many others.

But there’s one area in particular that’s immersing itself in every aspect of online marketing.

I’m talking about Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Based on my extensive research, here’s what I discovered. And of all the predictions I’ve made over my career, I’ve never been more certain of this fact:

AI is going to completely transform the world of online commerce.

And this fundamental shift will open up big opportunities in every industry and in every market online…

On the flip side, it will also cause more businesses to fail than ever before.

Simply because they didn’t adjust to this new AI-driven paradigm…”

Now this is a little off track from the purpose of this article and we’ll be giving you more information on this in another post but the point is that as entrepreneurs we need to be well placed to benefit from the changes that are coming and that means creating what we are calling a future proof business.  ONE that features YOU as an entrepreneur, and more importantly ONE that you control… not controlled by anyone else other than YOU. 

Here’s a list of the things that we believe are super important to you in creating a future proof business… and it doesn’t matter whether you are selling pills and potions or cryptocurrency…you should never be relying 100% on someone else’s products and services, replicated websites etc..

Because if something happens (and it does more often than you may think) you are left out in the cold having to start again from scratch at best and at worst seen as the latest “biz opp” jumper

The Key Components To A Future Proof Business in the 21st Century Are:-

  • How to build your brand and authority to create a long term business
  • How to set up and leverage the power of social media
  • How to find your target market
  • How to build a marketing funnel for your market
  • How to use your mobile phone to manage your business on the go
  • How to find and attract your perfect prospects 
  • The power of using your story
  • How to generate leads and build your list
  • Why people don’t buy the first time they see your stuff
  • Multi-channel follow up to increase conversions

Each of these are articles in their own right and we can’t go into detail here but we can tell you that all of these are equally important components of a future proof business and if you don’t know how all these pieces of the jigsaw fit together then you are not going to have a business long into the future.

Thanks for joining us today and do let us know if you have any questions
