We all take our health for granted until we get sick. People who claim they don’t have time for proper exercise and self-care find themselves hospitalized or in bed sick and out of commission for weeks or months. When our bodies force us, we have to make time for illness. Suddenly our health becomes much more valuable to us after we lose it.But why wait until this happens? Take a moment and think about your future and all that you hope to do in all areas of your life. Isn’t your good health an essential component for the achievement of those goals? Does it make good sense to you that unless you take care of your health, you cannot take care of business, family and other interests?A proper exercise program is absolutely necessary to ensure good health but exercising seems to remain a low priority for many. If you have difficulty finding time for your exercise program, you are not alone as a perceived lack of time is the most common reason people fail to stick with an exercise program.Too often we get caught up in the short term demands, the little things that have to be done somehow do get done, but the larger, really important issues like our health can get put on indefinite hold. Ask yourself, if you are too busy now to make exercise and your health a priority, when in the near future will you be less busy? Will it be weeks, months, or years? Will it be when the kids leave home, when you retire, or some other obscure reason (excuse)?If you are waiting for a better time to make exercise a priority, you may wait too long, and it may be too late to regain health once it has been taken away from you.Many busy people manage to find the time to exercise regularly. It would be fair to say someone who is busier than you is exercising right now!But how do they do it? The answer to this is they make their health and fitness a high priority goal. They focus on the multitude of benefits they receive from their commitment to their exercise program. Although exercise helps prevent chronic disease and disability, it also helps control body weight, slows the aging process, boosts energy, keeps us mentally healthy and helps manage daily stress levels.People who exercise regularly make it a habit and part of their daily and weekly routine; it is totally programmed into the day. The day would not be complete without it.Early in the morning is the most popular time. If you want to exercise consistently and long term (like the rest of your life), exercise in the morning, before the rest of the world tries to derail you. The odds will be greatly in your favor as over 90% of people who exercise ‘consistently’, do so first thing in the morning.People ask how can I be healthy and avoid all of these diseases without actually having to exercise? Is there a way that I can get the benefits of this activity without having to move my body? And the answer to that is simply, no, you have to actually do it if you want to get the benefits from it.No one can do it for you, no prescription drugs, no surgical procedure can give you the same health benefits that your body would create on its own when you engage in a proper exercise program. Become your own personal trainer and get yourself going so you can experience the positive health results proper exercise offers.With the extra energy and vitality that ‘being strong and fit’ provides, you will become a more productive person, not just at work, but in all areas of your life. When you are more energetic and feel great, you make better decisions, and find more creative solutions to problems. You will be much more fun to be with, and you will have more to give to those you care about.
There are many travel businesses out there that are using the network marketing business model to move their service. Most of them are the real deal. However many of their distributors are failing. Many of my clients that I speak with weekly bring to my attention all the challenges they are facing in their travel network-marketing business. They range from no upline support to buying leads and going broke in the process. However, these kind of issues are not new to network marketing. MLM distributors in most network marketing companies are faced with these challenges.People get started in a travel network marketing business and are taught old school business building strategies from the individuals that introduce them to the business. Now this is the only person, they feel can teach them how to build their business. However, many of these upline people that bring people into their business are faced with the same challenges like no upline support and old school business building strategies. It doesn’t work for them but they go a head and teach these ineffective skills to people they bring into their business. Now you have the blind teaching the blind. This causes our industry to have 97% failure rate.I inform my travel network marketing clients know that I was faced with the same situations when I first got started in mlm as well. I tell them that I actually stopped building my business and did my own research and found what really works for me. The key ingredient that turned my business around was marketing. I put myself in total control of my business when I learned how to marketing and promote my own business. I do my own lead generation. I make money even if no one decides to join me in my business. I build my own advertising budget and most of all I put myself in a situation to have prospects contact me. Most network marketers are being taught to chase prospects down, deal with massive rejection and spend all their money with no return on investment. So I suggest to my travel network marketing clients to learn these same marketing techniques and watch their business explode.
Today, businesses no longer operate only in local markets. For most organizations, global presence has become the way of life. This globalization brings with it the need to conduct market research across a variety of media, markets and economies – a task that is increasingly difficult for companies that do not have access to large marketing budgets. The complexity and resource requirements that come with conducting in-depth market analysis across the global business environment makes the decision to outsource market research services to an outside organization that specialized in this space an easy one.Today, market research service providers offer highly professionalized management, consolidation and delivery of relevant market analysis that can become the cornerstone of a targeted marketing strategy for organizations. The services that can be expected from a typical market research service provider range from data analysis about market needs, size and competition to systematically gathering and interpreting information using statistical and analytical techniques to support decision making.Advantages of using market research services for a business –
Market research services providers are the experts in their business. By handing over the research activities to such a firm, organizations can reap the benefits of expert knowledge as and when they need it rather than having the same resources in-house.
Organizations can use a range of techniques, both quantitative and qualitative, which provides a wider view of market needs. Quantitative techniques such as statistical data analysis from survey results requires a thorough knowledge base, which market research service providers already have in the form of statisticians and psychologists. Even qualitative techniques like focus groups require expertise when administering to get valid results. Creating that range of expertise in-house would be very expensive, especially for one-time projects.
Market analysis firms have the latest and greatest software and facilities geared precisely towards gathering and analyzing market data. Making an investment in such specialized tools may not make sense for the average organization.
Handing over market analysis tasks to an outside firm ensures a level of objectivity, which may sometimes be lost within organizations, especially if the results are different from expectations. Having an outside party evaluate the data without any agendas will yield more robust results that ultimately help the business move forward.
Market research service providers have a larger network that they have built, which provides access to a much wider range of information than what may be available to an average organization.
Organizations can expect faster turnaround times for projects to be completed, data to be analyzed and reports to be delivered since they are dealing with experts who have honed their skills. The same may not be true of an in-house function, especially when shifting business needs may pull resources elsewhere.
ConclusionThe task of finding out what people want and how a business can tailor its products or marketing campaigns to better suit those wants is a critical one for any business. So finding an expert in doing just this makes perfect sense. A market research service provider gives businesses the ability – and flexibility – to create and execute on market research campaigns as required without incurring the hefty costs of personnel, software, facilities and other tools.
