How To Change Your Life

Have you ever wonder how to change your life so that you can live happily in this world?

Most of us would have thought about this and looking for ways to change our life and be better in the coming future. But, are we prepare to do the necessary changes and work towards it?

I too encountered setup in my life, especially since my ex-company decided to closed down the office in 2017. I then worked for two companies but not able to stay in these companies for long.

I have since went for conversion course and enter into another new industry and have started working since October 2018. Time past and I have been working full-time for a year now. During weekend and off-day, I worked part-time as self-employ and earn additional income.

Work make me busy and do not have time to think much about my future. It is time to plan for future and work towards my dream now.

How To Change My Life

Below video will motivate us to think about what we want to do in our life, before we leave this world. Have a thought before we grow old and not able to do what we wish to do when we are still healthy.

Reading books help us improve our knowledge and also widen our perspective in life. I like to re-read those books on my bookshelf and see what ideas can be used to apply in my daily life.

Book like “Release Your Brakes” is one of my favorites  and I re-read it very often, to gain some perspective from it and get tips to improve my life. One sentence that strike me is ” How your life will change, will be the result of some decisions I am making now”. This is a very good phrase which reciprocal within me very well. Any decision we make now, will determine where our life will be. I totally agree with this statement.

The Decisions We Make Now Will Change Our Life

When I acceptted the closing of my ex-company in May 2017 from the management, this is the result I am facing now. If I will to reject their decision and decided to offer other alternatives, thing may change otherwise. Do I feel regret or angry? I am not sure at this moment because when I accepted their decision, I was loosing hope on that company and decided to moved on from it.

I wish to have a change at that moment as I see no future if I will to continue working for that company. The company has created many issues while I was with them throughout the 20 years career. I wish to have a better future life and decided to accept the closing of that company. So, why I am regret and feel lost? It shouldn’t be. I should focus on the better side and feel good about my decision. Start creating my new future and do what I wish to be in life.

So what is the life I wish to be?

A life that I can decide on my own terms and not being decided by others what I should do. I have strong feelings recently as I went for interviews and sending resumes to potential employers. Feeling so much stress and need to fulfill their needs instead of my wish, it limits my creativity and I need to focus on their wants instead of what I wish in my life. I kind of feeling frustrated and trying ways and means to please them in order to get the job offer. Is that what we want in our life?

Life shouldn’t be this way. We must live our life with joy and fun and do what we want.

Guides I Should Follow In Order To Change My Life

So, what should I do now? How do I move from here and start making my life better?

With internet and books everywhere, we can always turn to them and refer to them,  and learn from the experts. Which resources are good and effective on us? It depends on each individual. Everyone of us is created differently. Therefore, it is important to find guides, methods and tips which work for us.

As the book “Release Your Brakes” mentioned, just like playing golf or driving a car, we need a manual which teaches us the basic and fundamental techniques so we can start with ease. I am re-learning about the techniques taught in the book, and eager to apply it in my life now.

According to the book, author James W. Newman promised you that Your Life Will Never Be The Same after you apply all the techniques in the book. I am excited about it.

Learn From Other Experts

It is always good to learn from experts who have experienced the same setback as you and they have moved on to become a better person that they want. Most importantly is, the change make you a better person you wish to be, not to follow others. Do what is good for you, uniquely different from others, be yourself and feel happy about it.

One of the articles I came across, is written by Tim Denning, “14 Ways I Completely Changed My Life“. You can have a read and get some inspiration from his article. His words are full of wisdom which I like them very much. All these tips can apply easily in our daily life and we should adopt some of them if all are too heavy for you. Try one of the methods he suggested and see the outcome. You never know what decision you make today will change your life tomorrow.

Be An Alpha

Recently I came to know a dietary supplement called Alpha-Male and wonder why the name “Alpha” and google it on the internet. It leads me to a site “To be Alpha” and this site contains a lot of tips to help us take control of our lives and live the life we want. Have a read and gain some benefits from it.

Challenge The Impossible

challenge the impossible

 

 

 

 

I was inspired to add some word here tonight (Sep 13, 2018) after watching the show on TV “Challenge The Impossible”. The show tell us that there is nothing impossible if we put our efforts, time and energy to do those thing we love.

With the huge population in the country, China has many talents and you can see how human can challenge the impossible. Below is the YouTube showing the show. Have a look and see the impossible.

 

Going The Extra Mile

As Peter Sage said, by going the extra mile, only then we can make an impact and produce lasting change in our life, as well as others life.

His phrase is full of inspiration, and that is the reason he is a well known international & serial entrepreneur, author, philosopher and teacher. We need to learn from him.

Conclusion

Change your thought today, and make a decision now, your life is going to become better. Have faith in ourselves that we can leave the world a better place and everyone of us can make a different.

Be happy with what we have now, and feel good about ourselves. I find blogging really an effective way to motivate ourselves to become a better person and also free ourselves of all the limits other impose on us.

how to find business idea
I wish to share with you what I learned from other experts, How To Find Business Idea for your online business and turn it into a profitable business. With the following 5 simple steps, you can start your online business at ease:

 

 

  1. Choose right type of Online Business
  2. Find your genius and share with others
  3. Target right audience for your product
  4. Create the right product people want to buy
  5. Use my suggested blueprint to start your online business

Step 1: Choose the correct type of “Online Business”

The perfect type of “Online Business” I find out, is creating and selling Digital Teaching Products online. What is Digital Teaching Products? You may want to ask me. It is actually referring to e-books, online courses, online memberships, and all the related products or services that can be done online. Importantly, all these digital teaching products teach people to solve a specific problem or get a specific result from your product.

Digital products are the best match for Online business, because the products are digital and you can sell easily online. Teaching is a form of education, and it is an evergreen product. Recently Alibaba co-founder Jack Ma announced his retirement, and you know what is his next project? Education, which is teaching business. 

For example, you can write a 100-page e-book and sell it online. Many people are starting to do this and some of them took only 3 weeks to complete their e-book and they can continue to sell it for 10 years or more, and help them earn US$100, 000 in sales for a year. It is in fact a very profitable business to start your online business.

Of course there are other business ideas you can consider. As long as your business idea is helping people to solve their problem, people are willing to buy from you. Business ideas like relationship problem, health issue, improve productivity, expand business, widen social networking skills, get fit, and much more are hot topics you can write about in your e-book or creating contents on your blog and website.

Other business ideas you can consider:

  • teaching people to play poker
  • how to plan their weddings
  • teach your parrot to talk
  • how to solve your erectile problem
  • how to be successful with women/men
  • search engine for video streaming services (like JustWatch)
  • book review sharing site (like Goodreads)

Filming and Directing Business Ideas

Today (September 8, 2018) while reading Wealthy Affiliate member’s comment, I came across David Lumsden website. He is an MA graduate in Film and Television from Edinburgh Colleague and has directed/wrote various project.

Since young, I was always thinking about producing my own film. His blog makes me think about program/course which teach people how to use WordPress/Computer for producing film. This is one business idea you too can consider exploring.

Meanwhile, enjoy one of the film done on popular Vimeo:

Be Like Pablo – There She Is,  from Andrei Staruiala on Vimeo.

For those from Singapore, you may want to read about this article “10 Real Ways to Earn Money Online Singapore” posted on SGJobs.org giving you some business ideas. My favorites are “Start Your Own Blog and Monetize” and “Affiliate Marketing”. Let’s start to create your own destiny now.

Step 2: Find Your Genius And Share With The World

Every one of us is created differently and we have our own unique strengths which other do not have. Find it and show it to others. No one can be better than you and only you are capable of doing it yourself. The moment you were born is uniquely different from others. The timing, date, surrounding, parent, environment and all around you are unique and special. No one in this world has the same experiences and encounter you have in this world. You are special, you are unique, therefore show to the world all these differences.

Like me, I am good in running and I can share with others and teach and guide others how to run faster, longer and better. When creating content about running, I can include products relating to running and start selling those products. If I wish to expand my professional services, I can conduct running lessons for others. All these business ideas can turn into a profitable business online.

Currently, I know a lot about creating website and know where to host my website and what are the best online affiliate marketing course people can learn from. I can refer them to all these sources and earn commission from it. It is called affiliate marketing business model. This kind of business is getting popular and everyone can start with it at a very low cost and do it at their own time and schedule.

Step 3: Target Your Audience For Your Online Product

There are billion of people on the internet and all of them have their unique needs and wants. It is difficult to fulfill every one of them. Each of them wants products or services that cater to their own needs. Therefore, you need to solve their problems in order to win them to buy your online product.

When people are searching product online, they want something that able to solve their problems, the products or services that serve their needs. It is important that you create product specifically for certain group of people, not to sell your product to every one in this world. The more specific you target those people you want to solve their unique problem, the higher chance for them to buy from you.

For example, you want to help those people who are 50 years old and above, and have loss their job and want to create their own business without taking much business risk. You need to find their pain point and find a suitable solution to meet their needs. Only when your solution matches to their want, they will be willing to listen and buy your product.

Some of them called this narrowing your niche to those people who will highly buy from you, instead of selling to everyone in this world. This is a smart strategy to adopt, even in the corporate business world.

buy your products

Step 4: Creating An Online Product People Want To Buy

If your product is not what people want to buy, there is no point of creating it. Knowing what product people already want to buy, it is a very important concept you need to understand. Focus less on what you want to teach for your digital teaching product, and more on what people already want to buy.

There is one resource which you need to tap on, it is called Google. Google has very powerful tool you can use to find what people want. By researching on Google, you will find out what product people already want to buy. Other than google, I also discovered other tools which I am using right now to do my research and utilize all these tools for my online business. Feel free to check it out these tools I am using now, even this article was written by one of the tools inside this wonderful platform. You may click below banner to discover what I am using.

Step 5: Use A Proven Blueprint To Start Your Online Business

Have your heard people talking about “Do not reinvent the wheel”? This is true in the business world, especially when you have limited budget and do not have much time to waste. A lot of businesses failed because they want to create new thing from their raw idea. It is good to have your original idea which no one have in this world, but it will take you a lot of your times and resources.

Tablet’s idea was not from Apple originally. The product concept were developed and came up by other companies before Apple, but Apple managed to get the idea and make improvement on it. This is one way we can create our online business by leveraging on other existing resources on the internet.

Highly trained and middle-aged professionals are out of work

Highly trained and Middle aged professionals are out of work

 

 

 

 

On 20th July 2015, the Straits Times reported that more and more highly trained, middle-aged professionals are getting out work. This is very sadden to hear it, especially when we think about those who have a family to feed. These professionals have spent many years climbing their way up to the top, but are being retrenched now. And the scary part is, when they try to find a new or similar job, many at times they realized a lot of companies will tell them they are “over-qualified”. These group of workers, term as PMETs (Professionals, managers, executives and technicians) have hard times finding job.

Again on 31st July 2015 another sad news released on The Straits Times, The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) will be cutting several hundred jobs in Singapore as the bank scales back its presence here to just the trading and sales operations only. Many global banks in Singapore are having job cuts, both at the front and back offices. I hope not many Singapore citizens will be affected by this job cutting.

On 14th June 2019, The New Paper reported that Layoffs in Q1 is higher than last year 2018 and majority of those get retrenched are 40 years old and above. 69% belongs to the professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs). If you fall under this group, you will face many challenges to locate an employer willing to employ you.

Even the oil and gas industry equipment giant FMC Technologies from United States is expected to cut its job. With oil prices falling, many projects become unnecessary and companies will go for the easy solution – job cutting. Royal Dutch Shell, BP and Total too are cutting jobs, as the oil prices will remain low for several years. The outlook remain very uncertain, and hiring will be extremely tough.

Many factories in Singapore are moving out due to cost pressure and jobs in factories are hard to find nowadays. For those middle age professionals, things going to be even tougher. They may have school-going children  to support and they are not going to get the same pay job in future. With home loan, car loan and monthly expenses to cover, how are they going to face these challenges?

Some of these factory managers may be earning S$8,000 to S$10,000 a month with a degree from reputable university.  They have been working in the factory for 10 or 20 years and in-charge of the factory key management decisions for many years. With the downturn coming, are they prepare to face the reality?

Worst part is, if they have sick parents to take care of, that will make things even ugly and create more stress on these mature workers.

Ever think one day you will end up at this position?

You may want to consider establishing your business online right now, while you still have a job. Whether it is an off-line traditional brick-and-mortar business or new Online Business, you need to spend efforts and time to grow your business.

I do not encourage you to setup traditional brick-and-mortar business. Why? Because you will end up with burden of rental, operating costs, manpower fees, stock inventory risk, cash flow problem, etc.

Start with an online business. This business model is so much easier to  start with, and with your years of working experience and knowledge it is going to jump start the setting up of the online business much quicker than younger generation.

Depending on which search engine the searches use, if they are using Google then you will need to understand how Google provide the right answer to them. One way to master the know-how, is to learn how Google indexed your website and Google expert Matt Cutts show you How Search Works.

Google Featured Snippets

Featured Snippets will increase your website traffic because searchers can get direct and instant answers for their queries. The click through rate is reported to increase steeply. Some call Featured Snippet as Rich Answer or Direct Answer.

What are the ways to get your website on Featured Snippets? Your content should be specific, detailed and provides direct answer to searcher’s query. Using a direct Question and Answer format is recommended. Use structured data markup language and put your keywords in H2/H3/H4 header.

Use Catchy Title, Headline

Even your article appearing on Page 1 of Google, you still need to compete with other 9 articles on the same page. In order to stand out among others, you can use “Here” or “Now” in your title, description and headline.

Number is also a very good idea to attract attention. For example, “15 Impossibly Adorable Knitting Patterns For  The Baby” uses number in the title.

Learn From Other Experts

I like to learn from others, especially those that have gone through a lot of their own mistakes and eventually achieve success.

Attract Traffic Tips I learned on Sep 24th 2018

  • There are 3 fundamental components of the search framework: document relevancy, link building and authority, and the technical optimization.
  • As internet marketer, we must understand what the searchers are searching for, and we must create relevant content to solve their problems.
  • All the search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo all try to answer searchers queries in the most efficient way.
  • Do not create new page if your keyword is only slight variation, instead put that keyword in the same content page. Use Latent semantic indexing technique.
  • Putting too many same keyword on single page/post will lead Google to mark you as keyword stuffing.
  • Title tag is the most important element of On-Page Optimization
  • Link which is above-the-fold has more value.
  • Linking your content to good resources of the topic you are discussing could be rewarded by Google.
  • Updating of the old content will help to boost your ranking, and it also freshen up your page/post.
  • Do not change your URL as Google will treat that as page migration.
  • Using heading tags will help to layout your web page logically.
  • Try to fit your keyword in your heading for On-page optimization.

Caring for Seniors are in big demand for many countries and the government usually have various subsidies to support them, your company can tap those schemes and provide the necessary products and services to meet the demand.

You can consider to provide active lifestyle among the seniors, offering products and services to keep them active and fit for their growing age.

Seniors Doing Business Online

It is actually more convenient and many benefits for seniors to setup business online. Less times will be wasted on your travelling time from home to office and back. As seniors, the body movement is usually less flexible moving from place to another.

With online business, you can do your business at home and save all the hassle of climbing steps and ladder to reach your office.

High speed internet connection is widely available at most homes, and the internet allows you to reach any country in the world within second of connection. What you publish on your website and products offering, can be reached and accessed by anyone at every corner of the world, when they find you online.

Millions of potential customers are waiting for you to explore within the reach of your online presence.

Go for it and reach out to all these potential clients. With your products and services that cater to their needs. Helping those find you online to solve their problems and needs.

My personal preference of starting a business at the age of 50 years old and above, or for senior citizens wish to setup own business, is go into online business. This is the new trend in our modern world as more people are using their smartphones or tablets to access information.

When you have a business online, people can find you online and you will have opportunity to connect with them.

Resources On Internet Helping Seniors to Start Business

There are resources on internet you can turn to for help, one of them I found today is Jeff William, founder of BizStarters. He has setup online service to coach older entrepreneurs to start their businesses.

According to him, older business owners tend to treasure flexibility in their work schedule than younger generation. They have gone through the corporate world and some of them have achieved success in their career.

These older entrepreneurs have been there, done that, already managed people and they would like to grow a company without employee.

Povinelli, Founder of Dainty Wrist Jewelry, setup her online business selling all kinds of bracelets for the small-boned. Her aim is not to have a lot of money and big house but to be with her grandkids and enjoying the business.

James Glay, finally started his business at 59, after collecting vintage musical instruments for many years and setup Crash Boom Bam (now Vintage Drums And More) when he was laid off by his ex-company.

You can learn a lot from these senior citizen, how they setup their online business and witness there are many business ideas you can consider.

What is ThomasNet and how is it related to your online business here?

ThomasNet is actually an online platform for you to source for suppliers and look for technical products you need. However, recently I have discovered that they have very powerful marketing program which companies can tap on to grow their technical business if you wish to expand your online business. But, there is always pricing concern when you talk about engaging others to do the digital marketing work for you.

What is the answer if you want to start small or even try it out at free firstly to see the result?
Yes, you can. Simply visit the Wealthy Affiliate Online platform I am referring you to visit. There are few simple steps you just need to follow and you will learn all the skills highly desire in the digital market now, free at first and more advanced support when you upgrade to premium support level.

The platform I recommend is very suitable for company owner, who would like to manage your company website by yourself and do not want too much technical detail to manage. For other hosting company, usually it requires you to handle the cpanel yourself, which can be difficult to handle.

By using the platform I suggest, you are free to focus on your business building, rather than IT work.

Digital Marketing for businesses

Digital Marketing for businesses have become the new form of marketing to expand their business. The trend is going to increase further in the coming years, with more digital solutions targeting the online business community.

With the grow of smartphone usage, digital marketing will become even more important from now. We can search anything on the smartphone, more information is being stored digitally and can be assessed everywhere in the world, as long as there is an Internet connection.

Cloud computing is one of the factors driving the wider adoption of digital marketing in all the industries. The two most population countries in the world (China and India), are seeing increasing usage of smartphone among it younger generation. This trend has a big impact in the near term on how new generation consuming the information in their hands.

We are seeing many younger generation holding their smartphone wherever they go, and they are using different kinds of Apps in their daily life. Popular Apps like WhatsApp’s, Shapchat, Instagram, Twitter, etc are widely used by the younger population. It has become their lifestyle, and they cannot liver without their phone.

Even older generation at the age of 50 years and above are digitally driven. This group of consumers is coming to the online world to search for new opportunity, be it additional income or to improve their health. All kinds of activities can be learned from the internet and the internal is digitally connected with all the countries in this world.

Being digital, it means information can be transmitted through the internet and stored electronically. Comparing with the traditional way of marketing, digital marketing allows small companies to compete directly with the multinational corporation.

The bosses of these small setups are able to handle marketing by themselves, without spending a large amount of budget on marketing, especially like advertising on the TV and radio.
