How First Steps to Success Has Helped Dianne!

DFITeam

Prior to attending First Steps to Success, I was struggling and completely burdened emotionally, physically and financially.

As a Single Mom of 3 with no income to speak of, literally grasping at ways to feed my kids who were younger through those years, continually living in overdraft at the bank, worrying constantly!!!

I found a way to get to First Steps to Success and came out of an event in July of 2011 and started a brand new home business! I immediately put Dani’s teaching into Action!

This created over $29,000. of income in 30 days after that event, leading into six figures in my first six months and then ending the FIRST year of business with $249,000.00 of income!

To say my life changed is an understatement!!!!! I do not recognize my life at all and have been able to pay off $110,000 of credit card debt in 9 1/2 months, pay of a Line of Credit and have been making EXTRA payments to get my Mortgage (my last debt) Paid off FAST!!!!!

In the first 22 days of 2016 I have generated over $27,000.00 of profit and the month is not over yet!!!! I tithe to my home Church who have blessed and supported me over the years and I give above in donations and offerings to feed and house Orphans all over the world!

Again, I don’t recognize my life!

Where Do I Start as an Online Entrepreneur?!

So you want to get into online business? Good for you! Becoming an online entrepreneur can help you reach customers around the world and achieve your dream income and lifestyle. In fact, as of December 2015, it was estimated that approximately 2.5 billion people were logging onto the Internet every single day and spending millions of dollars online. Becoming an online entrepreneur gives you the chance to have a piece of that pie.

Being an online entrepreneur not only gives you the potential to succeed immensely, but it gives you the freedom to work where you want, how you want, and create the type of business you want to have. Gone would be the 9-5 hour days of sitting at a desk. Instead, you could be sitting on a plane to Hawaii while your business makes money for you.

This all sounds great but you are probably wondering where to start as an online entrepreneur. Like with everything else in life, you need to start with the basics. If you want to build an online business and become a successful online entrepreneur, start by following these steps.

Online Entrepreneur

Find a Need…Then Fill It

The first question you need to ask when starting an online business is what will your business sell? Will it be physical products, software, clothing, or something else? Now, this is a bit of a trick question because that is where most new entrepreneurs start…with the product. If you really want to be successful then you first need to find a need.

Pick an audience and discover what problems and trials they face in their everyday lives that don’t have a solution. Once you know that, then create a product that fills that need. Your online business will be much more successful if you start by solving a problem rather than by merely creating a cool product.

Build a Strong Base

When you become an online entrepreneur, there are a few things you absolutely must have. You must have a killer website, an email list, and a social media presence. This is especially the case if you have an online presence only. New customers will only be able to find you online and if you lack these three elements, you’ll be lost amidst the other online companies.

When it comes to creating a killer website, you must always think of the customer’s experience first. Keep it simple, clean, and easy to navigate. Also, make sure it loads quickly. You only have a few seconds, less than 5, to keep a customer’s attention before they leave your site. Make sure you include an opt-in offer (free content, discounts, etc) in exchange for email addresses to help you build your email list.

Sending emails is still one of the best ways to get a customer to convert. Plus, if you have obtained email addresses through your website or other opt-in offers, then you know the recipients want to hear from you. This gives you an even better chance of having them convert and buy your products.

Social media is one of the darlings of the marketing world right now and it would do your online business good to jump in as well. Keeping a consistent presence on social media sites can help you build an audience that is interested in your business. Building an audience of friends and followers that are loyal helps give your business a better reputation. Make sure though, that you only use social media platforms that help your business. Otherwise, you will be wasting your time.

Create a Good Reputation

One of the most important things you need to understand about online business is that people buy from people/companies they trust. If you want new customers, then you have to be a trustworthy company. There are several ways you can do this but here are two that we think are especially important.

The first way to create a good reputation is to establish yourself as an expert in your market. Publish free content that your audience will find useful including articles, videos, and infographics etc. Setting yourself up as an authority figure, especially as an online entrepreneur, will help your business gain the credibility it needs to succeed.

The second way to build up your reputation is through customer interaction and customer reviews. Customers will leave reviews on social media, Google, and other online sites. It is important for you to always follow-up with the reviews, whether they are positive or negative. Make sure you work through the problems that your customers face to let them know that you care about them as a customer. Potential customers will see this interaction and know that they can trust your company because of it.

Start Building Your Online Business Now

Becoming an online entrepreneur is a rewarding career and carries with it a lot of potential for success. When you start your online business, stick to the basics to get yourself off the ground. Find a need and then fill it with a great product, build a strong base, and create and obtain a good reputation. Staying on top of these three things will help you excel as an online entrepreneur and will cause your business to grow immensely.

See you at the top!!

3 Things That Hold People Back From Online Success

Starting something new is always a bit nerve-racking, especially when it involves making money.

Starting an online business can be an amazing adventure, but it can also come with some unexpected bumps in the road. You won’t get everything right when you’re first launching your business, but that’s okay as long as you have a plan in mind and know what it is you are trying to accomplish to achieve online success. Did you come up with your own product that you’re selling on an e-commerce site? Do you want to be an affiliate marketer? Are you selling your own digital products, like an e-course or coaching services?

No matter what it is you are trying to do to accomplish online, you must be aware of these 3 things that hold people back from achieving online success. If you can avoid these 3 common pitfalls, you will reach your goals and achieve the success you desire.

#1: I’m Afraid to Fail

News flash: everyone on the planet is at least slightly afraid of failure, especially those who are seeking online success. It’s part of human nature to be afraid of taking risks and falling flat on your face, but if you want to truly be a successful online entrepreneur you will have to endure failure. You need to admit to yourself out loud that becoming an online entrepreneur will come with setbacks and failures. You have to admit this to yourself before you take one step forward, because otherwise you will lose courage as the journey gets increasingly difficult. It’s not a question of if you will fail, but when. As long as you know what you’re aiming for failure shouldn’t scare you.

#2: I’m not an Expert 

The idea that you need a few fancy letters after your name to make money online is a very outdated concept. Yes, to practice medicine you do need to be a doctor—same thing goes for lawyers. But becoming an expert typically does not require you to be certified in anything other than your own life experience. If you are amazing at helping people save and invest their money, then you can make a great living teaching people online. Same thing goes for fitness. You don’t have to be a business expert to sell products online either. If you have experience in a specific area and you know how to get results for yourself and others, that’s all the expertise you need. Don’t let a few credentials keep you from living out your online business dream.

#3: I Have Things to Figure out

All of us have things to figure out. Do you think Steve Jobs knew every thing there is to know about computers and software before he started Apple? Do you think Mark Cuban knew everything about live streaming before he started his internet company Broadcast.com, and later sold it to Yahoo for billions of dollars? If you are waiting for all the stars to align and say you’re ready to launch an online business, you will be waiting forever. None of us are ready to take the next step—not really. What you need to do is have faith that with hard work, you’ll be able to learn what you need to learn to be successful. But what you need to do right now is just take the leap. There will never be a perfect time to start your online business—that perfect time is right now. Here’s to your success!!

Kauai Hawaii

kauaiEmerald mountains, deep valleys, and jagged cliffs make Waimea Canyon of Kauai a grand sight.  This natural wonder offers majestic views of an extraordinary landscape, so beautiful you cannot fully grasp its majesty.  Also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, it is often compared to its bigger relative (Arizona’s Grand Canyon); however, with such exquisite features, it stands on its own as a popular attraction and unique beauty of Kauai, Hawaii.  Enrooted more than 3,000 feet deep, and covering approximately 14 miles, its tremendous decor offers insight to a land before time.  Red soil and volcanic remains leave footprints of the miraculous events that have caused one of earth’s most spectacular treasures.  The Waimea Canyon is one of the reasons why Kauai is an exotic destination.  Its splendor and adventures are unparalleled, and it is an ideal location to explore life’s luxuries.

Kauai is the oldest and fourth largest of the Hawaiian Islands in the United States.  Sometimes referred to as the Garden Isle, this is manifested in the vast mountainsides, dense forests, and striking beaches that surround the island.  It is rich with culture and much of the heritage can be seen dotted along the island’s landscape. Painted with coconut palm trees, the popular Coconut Coast showcases different faces of culture from water activities such as mountain tubing to historic attractions like the Sleeping Giant. In Lihue, visit the legendary Alekoko Menehune Fishpond and capture the beauty of the Wailua Falls as the water tumbles 80 feet into the Wailua River. The island’s South Shore also houses McBryde Garden, which was a backdrop in the movie, Jurassic Park; and the Koloa Heritage Trail, which serves as an open history book with presentations of historical landmarks. The island’s immaculate beaches also provide a gateway into a world of oceanic adventures from whale watching and kayaking to canoeing and snorkeling.

Your vacation will not be complete without shopping in the trendy shops, kauai-3boutiques, markets and retail stores.  Fashionistas can get their hands on “made in Hawaii” jewelry, fabrics, produces, and handicrafts; as well as international merchandise.  The shopping districts are also a great way to meet the friendly natives and to indulge in the Hawaiian customs.  At night, you can nestle under the stars and observe the thrilling performances of a Hawaiian luau.  After indulging in delectable Hawaiian delicacies, the hypnotizing beats of live dances and music flow through the cool air.

The culinary temptations of Kauai are extraordinary.  The gastronomy provides a taste of Hawaiian delicacies blended with multicultural influences. Throughout the island aromas from elegantly created foods like seafood, pork teriyaki chicken and beef, mango cilantro, fill the local restaurants. With the backdrops of gorgeous sceneries smooth sounds of live entertainment in the background, the vibes at the restaurants are irresistible.  No matter what foods you may be craving, there is a plethora of cuisines that will delight any pallet.

Kauai experiences a subtropical climate. During the summer (June-October) the weather averages around the high 80s to mid 70s.  In the winter (December-April) the temperatures fluctuate between the high 70s to mid 60s.

Lihue Airport is Kanai’s main gateway to the other Hawaiian Islands and locations around the world.  Renting a car is a convenient way to discover the island’s famous attractions. Shuttles also provide sightseeing journeys to of some of the major sites and there are a variety of tours that travel to various scenic locations and tourist attractions. Get a bird’s eye view of the picturesque landscape by taking a helicopter or plane ride. However, strolling on the beach or through the island’s narrow pathways is a leisurely way to enjoy the weather and overwhelming beauty.

Turks and Caicos

turks-and-caicos-beaches

The Turks & Caicos Islands are two islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, southeast of the Bahamas. The islands were part of the United Kingdom’s Jamaican colony until 1959, when they assumed the title of a separate crown colony. Although independence was agreed upon for 1982, the policy was reversed and the islands are presently a British overseas territory.

Turks & Caicos is arid compared with other Caribbean destinations; the island receives less than 50 inches of rainfall annually and generally lacks the lush landscape found across other Caribbean nations. Still, the islands are consistently favored by sunshine and cooling breezes, and the beaches rank with the Caribbean’s best. The Turks & Caicos’ primary appeal is its status as a mostly undiscovered and not overly developed tourism destination.

Providenciales is the main tourism city although not the capital (which is Grand Turk). It features a handful of attractions including the Provo Golf Club, the island’s only 18-hole championship course, site of the 1999 and 2009 Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships. There are also various operators offering dive tours at reefs across the island. Travelers can also rent a boat for a full or half-day, or enjoy virtually every form of water sports, from parasailing to sail boarding. Picnics on exclusive private beaches can be arranged and there are multiple spots for snorkeling among the island’s exotic fish and coral. The Turks & Caicos has one of the world’s longest coral reefs, making it a premier dive destination.

turksandcaicos_beachkandi_01

Horseback riding and kite boarding are other available activities; visitors can take in the Caicos Conch Farm to learn about the life cycle of the conch, an unofficial island symbol. Fishing excursions are also available. The Turk & Caicos has an upscale beach-side dining scene, with a wide variety of restaurants including the popular Hemingway’s at the Sands at Grace Bay hotel. Grand Turk attractions include a historic lighthouse, which features a keeper’s residence and a kerosene storage building, all built of local limestone blocks. For generations, the lighthouse served as mariners’ sole beacon to avoid the treacherous northeast reef, which extends eastward far out to sea and was responsible for multiple shipwrecks.

Cruise ships call at the Carnival Cruise Line’s beachfront terminal in Grand Turk, which represents the islands’ closest link to mass tourism. Located toward the south end of the island, the terminal complex features a tourism village with shops and restaurants, an oversized pool where guests can rent private cabana, and an 800-foot-long beach. Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville is one of the popular eateries featured found here.

The main airport, in Providenciales, is small and at times struggles to keep pace with the recent wave of tourist arrivals. Travelers should arrange for a shuttle or taxi to meet them after landing. Upon departing, travelers should arrive at the airport approximately three to four hours before their fight time, especially on Saturdays, when lines can extend out of the airport doors.

Worry Less and Smile More!

  • Anyone else tired of reading the news? It’s been a rough year on many fronts, with global economics, violent shootings and unpopular politics filling the news cycle. Some days it seems next to impossible to filter through the negativity and find good in the world.

    It begs the question: Are optimistic people living in a state of self-delusion? Where is the value of positivity? Before you give up on humanity, really take a look around. There is good everywhere. There are wonderful things that will soften even the most callous heart. The key is ending the cycle of negativity in favor of the power of positive thinking.

  • Unplugging

    Our constantly connected culture comes with some serious perks. Social media, smart phones and tablets help us connect with loved ones on a level never before dreamed possible. However, all that connectivity keeps us dialed into the outside world all the time.
    Designate a part of your day, preferably a large part, as tech-free time. Give yourself permission to disengage from cynical Facebook posts, guilt-inducing blogs, dreaming of a better life on Pinterest and following negative news stories. Use this time to engage with the people around you.

  • Take 30 minutes to read books to your kids, prepare a meal with your spouse or call a good friend. These simple acts will boost your sense of well-being. When we make a conscious effort to leave our digital life behind, we re-enter the real world where you can make priceless memories.
  • Accentuate the Positive

    You can find the good in the world. You can break the cycle of negative thinking. It all starts with where you choose to look. Some people wallow in the negative. You know the people; they are the dramatic, needy, negative, energy drainers who you feel obligated to stay close with. Let them go.

  • Surround yourself with positive people, and you will find yourself becoming more positive in the process. Choose to spend your time with those who inspire you, lift you up and help you see the world for the beautiful place it is. These good people will put your challenges in proper perspective and keep you from focusing your energy on things beyond your control.Here are some lessons we can learn from our children on being happy.

    Seeking the joy.

    Now that you’ve learned to worry less by reconnecting with the real world and ditching the negative influences, it’s time to smile more. Smile more and mean it. Smile more and feel it.

    Happiness is a choice. It’s one we make over and over, every single day. We can choose to find joy. Get outside, celebrate the big and little moments, find your passion and follow it with purpose. If you can’t find the good in your world, create it. When you dedicate your time and talents to bettering the lives of others, you become the good you want to see in the world. What a powerful sentiment.

    Perfect for the Stay at Home Parent working with Coastal Travel Vacations

  • The Inevitable Conclusion

    What are the consequences of letting go of worry and choosing to see the positive? First of all, you will stand out among the crowd. Some people may categorize you as naïve or idealistic, but you can’t please everyone all the time. Don’t worry about the detractors. However, there will be an even larger number of people awed by your influence. People will flock to you, and they will follow in your footsteps.

    Don’t run from leadership. Put yourself and your positive attitude out there. Disappointment may follow, but don’t let yourself get sucked back into the vortex of worry and self-doubt. Even the best people have horrible days, but bad days do not have to become a habit.

    The world is a beautiful place, full of good people who are doing a great work. Join their ranks. You have power over your emotional landscape, and you really can choose to worry less and smile more.
