My Top 10 Strong Work Ethic Rules for a Solo Entrepreneur

Having an outstanding work ethic while being a solo entrepreneur is crucial. Unlike in a company, where the work ethic will be forced upon you, as a solo entrepreneur, you must create one for yourself. Having no strong work ethic means troubles with having success. Having no strong work ethic also means that other solo entrepreneurs – your competitors, those that do have an ethic, will always be one step ahead of you.

Keep in mind that your position is unique. You are not a large corporation where decisions are made slow, but the money still flows. In order to make a living, you will have to hustle and act fast. It’s scary in a way, but it’s also exciting – as an entrepreneur, you get to keep all the “shekels” you make. No sharing with anyone else (excluding the tax office)!

Why Investing in a Course, Coach or a Mentor Is Your Most Precious Asset

Not so long time ago I decided to start a new online business. It took me some time to choose the business model that I want to pursue, but after finally picking one, there was another big decision that I had to make. I had to find the right people that would teach me everything I needed to know about selling on Amazon.

I am a firm believer that almost nothing in this life can be done well without having a coach or a mentor. Regardless of the field you are trying to get into, you must have someone to show you how to do it. Sports, music, languages, cooking, business, yoga, meditation, etc. – all need a coach or a mentor. Sure, you can do those without someone guiding you, but don’t expect outstanding results. If you are trying to learn a new sport on your own, there is a strong possibility that you will hurt yourself. And if it is an instrument or a language, you are going to have a hard time in the future unlearning the things that you might have learned incorrectly.

How to Improve Memory Efficiently – the Beginner’s Guide

How to improve memory is a question that most of us have asked at least once in our lifetime. To be able to remember things fast and then recall them when necessary, is a crucial aspect of life. If you are studying at a college or university, you know how difficult it may be sometimes to remember that colossal amount of information that we are constantly bombarded with.

On the other hand, the need to memorize things doesn’t stop for as long as we are alive. From day one at your new job, you are required to memorize things efficiently. And when you become a parent, not only you have to remember to take care of your own tasks, but also your child’s. Thus, the question of memory never becomes outdated.

WARNING! Don’t Let Toxic People Into Your Life

As Wikipedia points it out, toxicity is the degree to which a substance can damage an organism. In this post I want to talk not about the toxicity of substances, but rather the toxicity of people. And although people are not substances, the damage that they can inflict can be a lot worse.

Toxic people have always existed around us. Some of us have only had an experience of dealing with them, while others need to interact with them on a daily basis. It may be your neighbor or someone you know, or it even may be your family member or your best friend turning into one. Regardless of who they are, the way in which they influence us, people seeking for happiness and piece, is nothing but negative. Based on experience I can say that if you care what other people around think of you, and you allow them to influence you, your mood may be destroyed even on the most blissful days, like your graduation day or marriage. That’s just what toxic people do, they find ways to push your button and pull you down.

Understanding Body Language is Your Absolute Must

Not so long time ago, I decided to improve my social skills. And while those involve a lot of public speaking, they also involve being able to better deliver our ideas in non-verbal ways. In other words, speaking and understanding body language is crucial.

I have always known that body language plays quite a significant role in communication, but because I have never really had any reason to analyse it any deeper, I knew nothing of the actual techniques and methods. Long story short, I bought a small book from Amazon on the subject of understanding body language that did a pretty good job in teaching some of the basics. As a result, in this post I want to share some of the key points that I picked up from the book.
