Is Your Business Dead or Alive?

Death is considered to be a mystery or a taboo in many cultures. Most people don’t like to talk about it and others don’t even want to think about it. However, death is more than an entry word in the dictionary. It’s a real event that comes to all of us sooner or later, whether we like it or not.

Well, today I don’t really want to dwell on physical death. So, relax and keep on reading. After all, there are other things that die besides human beings and animals. Your car can die. But I hope it doesn’t happen on a busy street. The sun dies in the west. The wind dies down. Someone’s financial situation can run down very fast and become totally dead.

What about a business? Can it die? Definitely! If it doesn’t have a foundation or a structure to stand on, you might as well forget about it: it’s dead even before it starts. If you’ve started a business online or are considering starting one, you’d better have a dependable system in place. I am talking about having a real strategy for it.

When I started my business online, a few years back, even though I had the best of intentions, I didn’t Know about what I’m telling you right now. I also had no guidance or mentor telling me what I really needed to do next. What I had were gurus offering me all kinds of shining objects which I kept on buying because I trusted the gurus and believed those things were going to help me grow my business. Can you relate to what I’m saying?

Those gurus surely sold me their stuff, but neither of them offered to help me in case I got stuck nor made communication with them easy in case I needed any help. So, my business was already dead and I didn’t know.

Even though, I had some negative experiences, it wasn’t all bad. I had some good turn outs and I decided to keep going. Finally, this year I found a real platform, a system where my business can stand on – Global NPN and a community of women who mentor and guide me as I’m growing my business – The Better Women’s Network.

Global NPN and Better Women’s Network are not shiny objects. They are tools and training respectively which have been proven to work for hundreds of online marketers. If you follow the Better Women’s Network training and learn how to properly use the Global NPN’s tools, you can surely shine. Are you ready to shine or are you going to continue chasing after shiny objects?

P.S. Contact me at Facebook and let’s talk.


Thank you for visiting my blog. Well, believe it or nor I’m originally from Brazil, but I married to an American and have lived in California for the past 14 years. When I first came to America, I was able to work at some regular jobs as a secretary, a teacher’s aide, and an interpreter. However, at the end of 2009, I found myself without a job and competing with a younger generation. Get the picture? Today, I’m very thankful I found Better Women Network, a concerned group of women supporting and mentoring other women, regardless of their age, to help them learn how to make money online using an online platform called Global NPN.

    So true Ligia – with marketing ‘gurus’ and shiny objects there really is no – or very little support – relationships, making friends – is the true key to success.

    • Right on, Corinne! The connection – the developing of trust and relationships is what is to leads to solid partnerships..
