Can Relationships be Formed Online

I can’t tell you how many times recently I’ve heard “You can’t create relationships on the internet. You have to do that face to face.”

About 10 years ago I would have agreed with you.
Maybe even 5 years ago. But…times change. We live in a different world now than we used to. Many people are working from home. They don’t commute to a building where they can meet others around the water cooler and chat. (OK…gossip…either way…) Facebook and twitter are the new water coolers.

I can remember a time, about 10 years ago, when I would go to the store in our little town, my husband could pretty much count on the fact that I would be gone for at least an hour to go about 2 miles down the road, grab a couple things and come home. What in the world took so long? I was chatting with people. Catching up on what had been going on in their lives and catching them up on me. Today, everyone is in a hurry. They are rushing from here to there and there to there. Very few people have time for face to face chats anymore. We get updated on what’s going on in our friends’ lives via their facebook status updates and their tweets.

Heck…my mom lives in Montana and I live in NY.  I see her once a year if I’m lucky enough to have her fly home for a visit.  But…we are closer now than ever.  We keep in touch long distance via facebook, email and phone calls.  She moved to the middle of nowhere when the grandkids were all very little (some weren’t even born yet).  They now range in age from 12 to 22.  They all have a relationship with their Grandmother.  Even though they rarely ever see her.

I have  a very good friend who lives in Washington state.  She has been there for me through thick and thin.  She knows things about me that no one knows.  I met her online around 2005.  I met her in person just three times.  She’s like a sister to me.  Our relationship began as a business partnership and evolved into a great friendship.

Another friend I met online helped my family find a place to live when we decided to move from NY to KY.  I had met her in person about three times prior to that.  Our relationship was formed online.

Now…do I suggest that you send your life savings to, or agree to marry, someone you met online and have never met in person?  Absolutely not.  You must use your common sense.

I do, however, know that people join in business people they know, like and trust.  Can that know, like and trust be formed on the internet?  YES…absolutely!  However, it only works if you are open and honest.  If you are feeding people a line, most will see through your BS.  Oh sure…you may get one or two who fall for it, but the majority of people…the ones you really want on your team…will see right through any shenanigans you try.

Bottom line…be honest…be real…be genuine and you can form relationships with people over the internet.

How Much Money Will I Make Working From Home

Here is a question I received this week.  I have received permission from the writer to answer it here on my blog because others may have the same question.

Roxanne,

You say that you have made enough money over the past 12 years working from home to support your family of four.  I am sick and tired of my job.  It sucks.  I have enough money in the bank to support my family for about a month.  Can you guarantee that I will make money if I start this home business with you?  Also, the thing I really love and would like to blog about is animals.  I have dogs and cats and rescue other animals.  Is that something I can make money blogging about?

Thank you,

KT

Hi KT,

First of all, NO ONE can guarantee your income or even guarantee that you will make any money.  My success is based on my efforts as your success will be based on your efforts.  You must commit to doing a couple hours of work EVERY day.  This is not a “set it and forget it” type of business.  It’s very important that you understand that.

With that said…yes…you can blog about animals and have good results if you follow the steps we outline for you.  That’s the beauty of this system.  It will work with any business, any topic.  A good friend of mine, Kim Klaver, began her business with Empower Network about 3.5 months ago.  She has made well over $60K and was invited by the company to a special retreat for the top 100 income earners in Empower.  She started at the bottom with no one, just like I did.  Just like you would.

I would not, however, recommend that you quit your job before you start making money with this.  If you have 2 hours a day (everyone can find 2 hours a day to make money), you can do the steps and work Empower to start making money.  When you have sold a few of the blogging systems and inner circle memberships, you will be making enough to pay for your monthly costs and have some extra coming in.   The more time and effort you can put into it, the faster you will go.  It’s all up to you.  After you start making money and see how easy it is, you can come up with an exit strategy of when your last day at your job will be.  The beauty of this system is that you can blog about anything you want.  So, yes, you can blog about what you love!

So…let’s get you started right away.  The quicker you get started, the quicker we can help you start making money.

I look forward to working with you!

Do You Make These Social Networking Mistakes?

There are many different schools of thought on how to use social spaces to market your business. This post is mainly directed to entrepreneurs, MLM, direct sales, real estate agents, etc… First of all, you do NOT need a business page if your business is just you. If your business is large enough to need a physical location and/or employees, you should have a business page. Otherwise, it’s not necessary at this point.

I have many network marketers who are on my facebook friend’s list. The mistakes I will discuss here are not exclusive to facebook, however, most people reading this are familiar with facebook so I will use that social space as the example.

Some so-called “gurus” are teaching people that they need to constantly pitch their business on facebook. This is the biggest LIE that was ever told!! I will include some recent posts that I’ve seen my “friends” make. These are examples of what NOT to do when marketing your business on social spaces.

How many of these types of posts do you put out there? If you post this type of thing, you need my New Year Group Coaching. It’s on special right now. Pay what you can afford. I will NOT be running this coaching again for a long time so go sign up today.

Do any of these sound like things you post?  STOP RIGHT NOW!!!  You are annoying and this only works on people who are naive enough to “fall” for it.  It will NOT build you a solid business.  If you want to continue doing these things, you will have to continue forever because the people you get to “bite” on your pitch will not stick around long.  You will always be spinning your wheels rebuilding your organization.

If you post any of the above things trying to get people to join your business or buy your products, STOP and go RIGHT NOW and sign up today for the 2013 New Year Group Coaching and finally learn how to PROPERLY use social spaces to build your business.  Once this coaching is over, it’s done.  I will not be doing it again.

Good Monday Morning

It’s Monday again.  I get to see all of my facebook and twitter friends complain (starting Sunday nights) that today is Monday and they have to go back to work.  I can’t imagine going to a job anymore.  I have been blessed to work from home while my husband has needed me due to health issues.   I’ve been blessed to work from home while my children were growing up so I could homeschool them and be here for them when they needed me.  I’ve been blessed to be able to sleep until I wake up on Monday mornings (and every other morning for that matter).

Don’t get me wrong…it has NOT always been easy and my family has struggles just like any other family.  Working from home is NOT an answer for all of your problems.  It is not right for everyone either.  It is, however, a great way for you to alleviate some of the financial burden and a way to control your own future.

Many companies are even finding that they get more productivity in less time when they allow their employees to telecommute.  Why?  Because when you are paid based on productivity instead of hours you go to a physical building,, you tend to get more done in less time.

I will caution you…the time to start making money from home is NOT after you lose a job and have no income.  You need to get things in place while you still have a job and transition into working from home.  Wondering what you can do to make money from home?  Check out my Cash in on Your Passion series and find out how to make money AND have fun doing it.
