4 WAYS A POSITIVE ATTITUDE INCREASES SUCCESS IN BUSINESS
People love to do business with people that are happy and genuinely excited about what they do. Think about the last time you went to a grocery store. If you had to choose between a cashier that was friendly, or a cashier that was noticeably in a bad mood, who would you check out with? Having a positive attitude can be the difference between your business being successful or not.
Creativity blooms with positivity
The more positive you are the more likely you are to come up with out of the box ideas in your business. A negative person will come face to face with a mountain and will turn around; a positive person will face a mountain and will find a way over or underneath it. In other words, the positive person will encounter an obstacle and will believe that there is a way to the other side; the negative person won’t.
Productivity blooms with positivity
When you have a positive attitude you’re significantly more likely to stay motivated to attain your goals. You will feel inspired, grateful and excited to approach each day and be more productive for it. Did you know it is a proven fact that a diffuser with drops of peppermint oil actually increases a positive state of mind?
Self-confidence blooms with positivity
When you have an optimistic and happy attitude, you are more likely to believe in yourself. When you believe the world is out to get you it is harder to believe you have the skills or knowledge to be successful. Therefore, personal development is very important, especially for business owners.
Sense of calm blooms with positivity
Positive people consider the favorable outcomes that could happen vs the negatives ones. They believe that everything will work out as they were intended to be. When you let negativity creep in, it takes you to a state of fear, a place of stress and an increased possibility for failure.
We don’t know about you, but it is our belief that being positive is a choice. Make it your mission to choose to be more positive in business and life in general- it could just turn your business into a wild success faster than you can say “thank you!”

Turn your passion project into a profitable business
AUTHORON POINT EXECUTIVE CENTERSEPTEMBER 24, 2015
Picture this: You have been making the prettiest bracelets out of beads and metal wire for the past several years as a hobby. You love it so much that you often find yourself creating these bracelets for friends and family for their birthday and holiday gifts as well as making countless bracelets for yourself. Every day people compliment you on your bracelets and tell you they are so beautiful that you should seriously start selling them. Hold on! Should you turn your hobby into a business? Here are five questions you should ask yourself before turning any hobby into what you do for a living:
- Do you love it enough to do it every day?
When people think of their hobbies, they are generally doing them as a way to escape the daily grind. If your hobby becomes your daily grind, would you still love it?
- Is your hobby something you could actually profit from?
Let’s go back to the bracelet maker for a moment. Imagine the bracelets cost her $10 to make. For craft businesses many experts say that you should charge triple the amount of the cost of materials to pay for the time and labor. Would someone actually pay $30 for that bracelet?
- Can you work enough to make a living wage?
If you can only make 5 bracelets a day that means your profits are only $100 a day. Can you live on that daily wage?
- Are other people selling the same thing you want to sell?
If they are, what are the prices of the competition’s product and can you match that price? It they aren’t, are you sure there will be enough of a demand to consistently sell enough?
- Finally, do you even want to convert this hobby into a business?
For some artists and crafters they could never imagine charging for their pieces. They consider them gifts from the heart and wouldn’t dream of selling their creations.
We hope the answers to these questions will help you get clear on whether or not turning your hobby into a business is right for you.
