Business = _________ (fill in the blank)

What is business to you?

For me it’s a creative outlet.

It’s an opportunity to make an impact on a global scale.

It’s the chance to serve on a higher level.

As an entrepreneur, it’s my job to inspire, educate, and entertain.

As said by Helen Keller, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all”.

And business is one of the greatest journeys you can take.

Business is the highest expression of myself.

Business allows me to build my life around my own values and passions.

It’s my pass to personal freedom.

What is business to you?

  1. For me, business is competing with other businesses and doing some things better than they do. While this many not really apply to online business, especially in product creation, as every competitor is a potential JV partner, it’s true in offline business.

    By the way Kim, did you build an offline business before you discovered internet marketing?

  4. Business for me is a way to monetize helping other people. I don’t focus on the money, I focus on helping others and the money follows.

  6. VIDEO GAME! That’s what this business is to me.

    Some people play video games on the computer and earn points or money in the game. Well, in my video game I earn REAL MONEY.

    When I press the right buttons at the right time in the right order – with my Internet biz – then real money comes out. And if I do it really well I move up to the next level. First it was $100/day then $200 and then we hit $1,000/day for a little while.

    This is the best video game on earth!

    • I really like the video game analogy and have often wondered why I can operate in a virtual environment and make all of the money that I need to buy materials that I need to play the game (yeah maybe the programming is stacked in your favour).

      Maybe I should go back to basics and play Elite fo a few hours to get in the habit of creating thousands from a hundred credits :).

      Good post …..

  7. Business = need to succeed, all my life I have found joy and gratification in success,and a passion to teach and learn,

  8. Business is being able to do for a living that I would do even if I didn’t make a cent doing it.

    Business is being able to be true to myself as a human being – it is a permission to be me.

    Business is about making a difference in the world, a calling.

    Business is about finding my higher purpose and live life being the best I can be.

    Great post Kim. :)

  9. Business = jazz juice!  The thrill of your hard working paying off for you.  Doing the work now so that you can reap the benefits later.  Outwork!

  10. Business is means to achieve Financial FREEDOM while serving people and deliver highest possible value we can to our clients, family and friends… Financial FREEDOM will then give you the time to develop more business ideas, or just simply give you time to do the stuff you love:  Sports, Volunteering at Children’s Hospital, Hangout with your family and dog… Everyone of us are here to serving others, with our God Given talent and gifts…. to the best ability we can …. 

    Thanks KIM…:)

    Cheers :)

  11. Business = in the long run is when I can do what I love to do. And I hope for all of you it is foremost the creative and not the competitive pass because the universive understand positive focus only. If we try to be competitve sooner or later we work against ourselves.

  12. Business to me is to serve others, to help them achieving their goals because in this manner they help me to achieve mine. Like you do, Kim, I suppose.

    By the way, Kim, are you doing everything in your lab alone or have you the team to help you out with all the great stuff that you are producing?

    Kindest,

  13. Business to me is freedom. the ability to live my life to it’s full potential and not settling for mediocre life.

    I believe we are all capable of being great an entrepreneurship give’s all of us that option.

  14.  

    Business is more or less answering the following questions:

    Are there people with a specific need or problem?

    Can I provide a solution?

    Are they willing to pay money and if so, how much?

    Am I willing and able to provide the solution for the money
    they´re willing and able to pay?

    If so: Where can I find more of those people and

    How can I provide an even better solution to them for a
    lesser price and at the same time make more profit?

    And finally: getting it all done!

    Sounds easy, but it´s not :-)

  15. Making money is business. Selling stuff makes money. Converting prospects makes sales. Providing solutions converts prospects. Invaluable content provides solutions. Kim makes invaluable content.

    Therefore I provide this invaluable information (TD), as a solution which converts my prospects into sales which makes me money and fuels my business.

    I do this business because I like writing and making videos, which creates prospects for me, therefore resulting in income! This is awesome

    Thanks for the post!

  16. Business to me, and should be for anyone, is to make money. Or it wouldn’t be a business.

    However, helping and socialising with entrepreneurs of like minded individuals such as in this business helps a lot, and is a bonus. As in off line businesses, its not as easy and social like as it is on the online world.

  17. Esssentially, business is all about service. Either you are giving, or you are taking.
    You make the decision. Oddly enough, it is not really anything to do with trying to make money in my experience, that is simply a byproduct from how you serve your customers.
    Business can be somewhat of a paradox. I like your quote by Helen Keller! Every day you have a choice to make when you wake up, create and contribute, or pass the buck .

  18. I hate being a job slave and I just can’t see myself working for someone else. So business is the only way out for me. I love to build something from scratch which I can then proudly call my own. Also, business is the best route to achieving financial freedom.

    Cheers~

  19. All my life I’ve thought business was scary and not for me – something for those intimidating men in suits! I’m coming to it relatively late in life and discovering it’s a passport to realising my potential as a human being, unleashing long-dormant creativity and enabling me to take charge of my own life. It’s about personal and professional freedom, developing and using my gifts to the full, not being constrained by other people’s limited expectations. I think it’s also about giving, providing something of value – and caring. Last but not least, it’s about changing and growing – because businesses that don’t adapt won’t survive.  

  20. To me, Business means Freedom. I work when I want, where I want, what I want and how much I want…. Nobody tells me how to live my own life!
    Also being a Film Maker and a Musician by profession, Internet marketing gives me the opportunity of regular passive income source while I working part-time and do what I actually want to do- Making Films & Composing Music.

    Hope to live my life free and high…

    Thanks

  21. Taking control of your own destiny.  Being your own boss and not just a slave to another corporate big wig!

    Taking on new challenges each and every day to keep your mind active.  Also preparing for the future!

  22. Business use to be the 9-5, grunge of doing something I really didn’t want to do with know idea of where I wanted to go.  Unemployment and turning 50 helped me to shift my perspective to what I wanted to do.  Building a site happened by accident with affiliate marketing being the goal.  Now business to me is complete self-expression.  I am able to offer something I believe in and express myself and my passions without inhibition (well, within reason).  :)   

  23. Business is taking my passion of training and coaching small business owners and job seekers and helping them achieve the financial freedom and success that they desire!
    Great post Kim!

  24. Business is ,getting up early, having a great breakfast and getting enough things done throughout the day that give me the pride and satisfaction to be as hungry as a horse at suppertime.
