Success at What You Do Depends on What You Do

Persistence, drive, and motivation are three key components in reaching your goal. Nothing is achieved sitting around and thinking about it.

Devise a plan, set goals for yourself and get started. No, you might not be able to get where you want to be as fast as you desire but taking consistent steps daily puts you closer and closer to achieving what you want.

Have Faith

Stop using the words, No and Can’t, yes you can and don’t procrastinate!

Find something your good at and develop it. What are you passionate about? Perhaps your beginning point can be in doing what you love. Many things start off as a hobby and the next thing you know you are consistently doing it. Sometimes we have to think outside of our comfort zone. Even if someone else is doing the same thing you are doing, so what. Each person has their own unique touch and personality. Put your all in it and let your light shine through your talent.

Share what you do with others, don’t be afraid to showcase your talent. Use your own judgment as to how much you want to show, a little at a time is OK. Create a blog or website and let people know a little bit about you and the talents you possess. When people get to know you they become more interested in what you are doing and the get a glimpse of the person behind the product.

Remember you are the face of your brand. Bees are more attracted to honey than vinegar so put on a happy face, be friendly and welcoming. Be encouraging as well to others who might be apprehensive about stepping out on Faith to showcase their own talent and expand their horizons. As you grow to know one another and each other’s talents lift each other up and encourage one another to keep pushing forward even when things might not move as fast as you like.

Be Patient

Nothing happens overnight, everything takes time. We have to be patient and trust the process in getting ourselves organized, products stocked for selling, advertised and sold. Take pictures of your finished work. Show before and after pictures to show how you turned much of nothing into something, people like seeing others creativity.

Marketing

Name your business, have business cards printed up with your blog, website or Facebook link on it so people can find you. Make sure to put either your email address or a phone number where you can be reached in case people have questions about what you’re selling. Decide what method of payments you will be accepting and be sure to list price everything and make mention if any shipping and handling charges apply. Be precise and specific when listing each item you plan to sell such as dimensions, colors, etc. Be sure to make mention of the length of time it will take for your buyer to receive your item and try to stick to that time frame. People like getting things in a punctual manner especially after they have paid for it in advance. Pack your items accordingly for safe transit to your buyer.

Keep reminding yourself that you must remain focused, persistent and determined to get where you want to be. It will be worth it in the end. Your hard work will pay off. Keep a journal of your progress. Make supply lists and wait for after holiday sales so you can get supplies at a deep discount. Most of the time you can get them from 60-80% off after the season has pass, there always more expensive when you try to purchase them in season or during that particular holiday. Remember one step at a time to success.

Stay motivated and keep in mind if first you don’t succeed, try again. You never know what you can accomplish if you don’t try. Stay motivated and keep your eye on the prize!

Ohio boy’s lawn care business goes viral after ‘ridiculous’ neighbor calls cops on him

A resident in a Maple Heights, Ohio neighborhood called the police on a 12-year-old boy who is spending the summer mowing lawns.

The boy, Reginald “Reggie” Fields, along with his siblings and cousins, were mowing a customer’s lawn when Reggie accidently cut a different neighbor’s grass.

The mistake spurred that resident to call the Maple Heights Police Department, Lt. Joe Mocsiran confirmed to Fox News on Friday.

“They said I was cutting their grass. I didn’t know it,” Reggie first told WEWS News 5.

Mocsiran said no action was taken against Reggie.

“A little kid is out there working hard — heck no,” he said, explaining that it’s difficult to tell where one person’s lawn starts and another ends in the neighborhood where the incident occured.

The situation prompted Lucille Holt, the customer whose lawn Reggie was mowing, to post a video to Facebook detailing the incident and documenting the children’s hard work.

“I guess I have a line where part of it is not my yard. They called the police to tell the police that the kids were cutting their grass,” Holt said in the video.

“Who does that?” she asked. “I’m so angry right now, this is totally ridiculous.”

As of Friday afternoon, the video had more than 50,000 views and 500 reactions.

Holt’s video has caused a surge in Reggie’s business, WEWS News 5 reported, adding that people from across the city have now asked Reggie to mow their lawn.

“People are inboxing me like, ‘how can I get in touch with these children? Where are they at? I got property I want these kids to cut,'” Holt said.

The young boy, whose business is called “Mr. Reggie’s Lawn Cutting Service,” according to WEWS News 5, plans to use the money he earns this summer to buy new equipment to expand his business.
