When you wake up in the morning, do you look forward to what the day holds or do you wish you could roll over and go back to sleep?
The answer to this question doesn’t have to be the latter, if you have the right attitude and mindset. Regardless of what you have planned for the day, it’s vital to remember that simply being alive and experiencing the world is quite and experience.
However, you need to have a clearer idea of what your goals are, and how you’re going to reach them. So the first step is to write down what you want to accomplish – this can be for a day, a week, a month or even a lifetime.
You see, when you have goals in your head, they’re not in any kind of reality. Your thoughts replace them with the multiple challenges that every day brings, and it’s easy to forget what you want to achieve.
Write down your goals and then start working towards them. Remember that the steps you are taking may seem minor – such as opening up a bank account – but each of these steps adds up to the entire journey!
As you follow each goal to its completion, remember that keeping a positive mindset is what makes entrepreneurs and business people successful. It’s not as easy as it sounds because it’s easy to get down when things are going the right way.
You can change the direction of your thinking by considering other alternatives. For example, you may be working on a lengthy presentation that you hope will help you land a great customer. After all of the time and work, you might not get that signed contract.
You have two choices: feel bad that all of your work didn’t achieve the results or realize that the work you did taught you new skills and challenged your ability to think. Sure, the contract might not have been signed, but next time you’ll be even more prepared.
What we’re saying is that if you view your life and work in a positive light, it’s easier to deal with some of the unfortunate events.
Of course, no one wants to always be on the losing end, but when it happens a positive mindset allows us to take in what happened, analyze it, and then move on to the next opportunity.
When you have goals set for a certain period of time, you feel more productive because you’re working on several different projects in succession. This action builds your momentum, and makes the setbacks easier to handle – especially when there’s another opportunity waiting on the horizon.

You’ve probably heard me talk about the new member websites and how they’re one of the best resources available to our Club Asteria members.
Hopefully you’ve already signed up for your site, but if you haven’t, here’s the information one more time:
* We’ve created a short, insightful and informative instructional video, which walks you through setting up your site. Click this link to view it.
* A PDF of instructions is also available at this link.
Now that you have this information, it’s a really good time to get your site registered so that you can begin to use this tool the right way. Remember, “Use the right tool for the right job.”
As a marketing tool, your own website might be one of the most powerful available! The challenge is to use it the right way, but how do you achieve that?
First, remember that whatever you post on the site is going to be seen by your potential clients, so you want the contents to be error free and also informative. Keeping your audience informed makes it easier for them to purchase.
In the Age of the Internet, information has become expected from vendors and companies that range from gigantic to a one-person operation. Remember to be quick, be informative and be persuasive!
Use the right graphics and photos on your site. They should be in good taste and also memorable – you want your clients to stick around, and when they’re exploring your site, it’s helping your sales.
Remember that the Internet is growing rapidly, there are literally billions of websites out there, so make sure to include a link to your site in all of your marketing and sales collateral. Include the link in the signature of your email, on your social media pages, and on your business cards.
Feedback from visitors will help you sharpen the aim of your website, so ask for the information! You can send out quick surveys to customers – you may want to offer a discount on their next purchase for completing the survey. Use this information wisely when you’re deciding which products to spotlight.
A member website is a powerful marketing and sales tool, and it should be updated on a weekly basis. Integrating this site with your other marketing efforts will enable you to earn more income and help the overall mission of Club Asteria.Tags: club asteria, education business opportunities, gold member, powerful marketing, member website
As Club Asteria has grown, we’ve offered our members resources and services designed to increase sales, and provide everyone with a way to earn an income.
The idea has continued to grow, along with our membership, and in January 2012 we have rolled out the member websites!
Membership with Club Asteria entitles you to a Member Website that has already been designed and preprogrammed with a variety of benefits and features that would otherwise cost you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
You’ve no doubt read about this new resource in the February issue of Empower Now, and if you haven’t it’s on pages 40-41!
There are loads of features, but we want to concentrate on a few of them here to help illustrate how this site can change the way you do business.
Your Own Personalized Website – this is where it all begins, a website that has your own domain name and email address. This site is easy for you to change and edit as you go along, and it’s going to function as your electronic storefront!
Email Marketing Platforms – email provides you with an easy to use tool that you can use to reach out to your customers, and potential customers. Think of how you could create a personalized email informing your audience of new products and special deals on your site. With the press of a button, you’re communicating to people around the world.
Marketing Campaigns with Social Media Integration – the world has discovered social media programs like Facebook and Twitter. Merchants and vendors have used these platforms to quickly identify audiences who are perfect for their products and services, and now you can to!
The interaction with the personal website has been made simple and easy to understand, no matter how much or how little computer experience you may have. In addition, we’ve provided plenty of video tutorials so you can follow along and totally customize your site.
Club Asteria’s dedication to our members is what enables us to achieve our goals of helping communities around the world escape the chains of poverty. The products we’ve created for you will hopefully open up an entire new world of business that improves your lives, and those of the people around you.
If you’re not a member yet, don’t hesitate! You can join Club Asteria for a free trial period by visiting our site – and while you’re there consider signing on as a Gold member and take advantage of even more benefits!

Club Asteria is based on sharing what we have with others in the world. The end goal is to give people who are suffering under the weight of poverty the opportunity to build a business that helps them, their families and their communities.
We began Club Asteria with the idea of giving back to the world, and in turn, receiving the support and help from members located in almost every part of the world. So far, we’ve been able to help out thousands of people.
So how have you helped out those around you? That’s a tough question to ask because in today’s world, where the economy and international markets seem to be full of negative news, we’re all trying to hold onto what we have.
But you can give in other ways that do not involve donating money. In fact, while donating funds to a cause helps many people, giving other valuable items makes a big difference too.
Consider your time – that’s valuable, right?
Think about how valuable that time is to a local organization that’s non-profit and depends on volunteers to help. If you looked at your schedule, there’s probably three or four hours a week where you could volunteer. That time you give could help a great many people.
You also have experience that could be invaluable. There are many people in the world who want to achieve great things, and have humble goals like starting their own business, just like you have.
Loaning your experience by teaching a volunteer class, or speaking at local business seminars might give a person the insight and inspiration he or she needs, but never came in contact with.
There are also plenty of tutoring and mentoring programs in your community that need your help. Sitting down with a young person and helping him or her decide what they want to study could impact more than that person – it affects all of the people they go on to help!
When you give of your time, intelligence and knowledge, you’re providing resources that aren’t as available as money.
Think about that.
Sure, donating funds provides an almost instant answer to a problem, but once that money is spent, the effect might not last as long as sitting down and educating a person with your experience!
Take a look at your schedule for next week and then find three hours of free time. Search for a community group that needs your help, and then go out and give. What you’ll receive is far more valuable than any sale you could make!Tags: business seminars, club asteria
We realize that running a small business in these trying economic times can be challenging – the competition is fierce and many people are keeping a tighter hold on their money than ever before!
Hard work has always been one of our mottos at Club Asteria, but there are other aspects to the entire picture that we have to recognize, in order for that hard work to pay off in the end.
Here are some ideas to keep in mind when you’re working towards a goal.
Look Back, Look Forward
This might sound like common sense, but many people don’t realize that to see how far they’ve gone, they need to look back. Every day, you’ve made an accomplishment that’s propelled you forward – no matter how small or insignificant it seems, what you’ve done has set you up for where you’re going!
Don’t Be Scared to Dare
Business leaders will tell you that they had plenty of false starts before they found the right project that led to their success. So don’t be afraid to take a chance, that’s the only way you’re going to succeed! Trying new things or strategies can pay off, it’s just a matter of believing in yourself.
Make Amazing Mistakes
Everyone makes mistakes, right? When you do something wrong, take the opportunity to learn from it, and you’ll benefit in many ways. Keep a journal and write down what went wrong and how you learned. Remember this, if you’re not making mistakes you’re not trying hard enough.
Look Outside Yourself
Everyone faces the hazard of getting tunnel vision – becoming so engrossed in our own lives that we never look around and observe others. There’s a whole world out there, and it’s full of lessons and information just waiting for you to notice. When we learn from others, we grow and thrive.
Never Stop Learning
As we age, it’s common to think that we’re done learning about life and how the world works. But that’s just not true! There is always something new to learn, and that information could make a big difference in your life. And when you share new information with someone else, you’re helping make the world a better place.
The road of life isn’t always easy, and there’s no guarantee that everyone gets what they want, but as long as you remain open to the people and world around you, the experiences and knowledge you gain will outweigh the negative experiences.

For the past several months, we’ve been talking about the member websites, and how they’re going to be fantastic, and function as another revenue generating tool for every Club Asteria member.
We’re proud to announce that the member websites are now available to every Club Asteria member, and setting them up is so easy, a child could do it! Our goal was to make this resource something that everyone could use.
Here are a few vital links you’ll need to get started on your site:
• We’ve created a short, insightful and informative instructional video, which walks you through setting up your site. Click this link to view it.
• A PDF of instructions is also available at this link.
Remember that we want every member to take full advantage of this incredible resource, so if you have any questions or are having trouble, please contact us through the normal channels, and we’ll do our best to help you.
When your website is up and running, you’ll have a brand new tool to use for making more profit, and helping out your friends, community and the people that Club Asteria benefits via micro-loans and lending programs.
These websites are the first of many new resources we’ll be rolling out in the coming year, and we think they make an excellent starting point. It’s also important to note that before we make a product available to our members, there are many steps that have to be completed.
We realize that our process might hold up products and services everyone is waiting anxiously to try, but we’d rather back up a release date by a few weeks to make sure that what we’re giving you works the way it should.
In the coming weeks, be on the lookout for new announcements and news about these products and services, but in the meantime here are a few ideas for your website:
• Choose a name for your site that’s easy to type, and remember.
• Be patient! Plan out the pages on your website so they make the most sense.
• Remember your audience, that when potential clients will be visiting your site for the first time, it should be an enjoyable experience.
• Pictures and videos are great ways to create relationships with your customers. Don’t be shy!
• Share the website address with your friends, family and business contacts. Make it part of your email signature!
