The No Excuses Summit that is hosted by Raymond Fong and
Ferny Ceballos each year, finished out in Las Vegas and those
in attendance, came away with a boat load of good information
that can be incorporated into their home based businesses right
away. These two, have some of the most successful people in
the Internet Based Businesses that are the leaders, speak in
front of thousands of hungry, wanna be leaders.
In fact this year, Ray and Ferny had contests long before
the actual meeting to determine who would be the speakers.
Some of the speakers were in the audience last year or the
year before and were determined to be successful so they
could in turn be on the stage along with many of the yearly
successful speakers, such as Michelle Pescosolido, Ray Higdon,
and Diane Hochman.
During part of the meeting, the last two years they have a
panel of “experts” that are on the stage and are asked a
series of questions but one of the main questions this year
was: “What was your particular secret to your success?”
In essence, with all of the six speakers, it came down to
about three important aspects that they attributed to
what allowed them to be that successful person or couple
1) Focus – When individuals begin their entry into the
internet based business, they have a tendency to try to
do way too much and what happens, they become
overwhelmed with all kinds of ideas and thoughts.
Instead of following a path of of easing into a program
and learning things slowly or at their own pace, they
try to take it on all at once and become bogged down.
The successful speakers said that when they realized
that taking things one at a time and concentrating on
one program or one way, then the clarity of their intentions
became much easier. This means working with only one
business at a time before you become involved with another
business that might also be “the one”.
Don’t dabble from one business to another, thinking that
this one is going to be the one. Stick with one until you
have mastered at least part of the business – this of
course means you have done your homework as to
which business you are going to become involved with.
2) Putting other people first!!! — This was a biggy for
most of the panelists on stage. Most of them said that this
was probably the biggest turning point for them in their
turning themselves around in becoming successful.
The caring about people, supporting and caring about
the other people in the business rather than thinking
about their own place in getting leads and sales.
Calling leads (which many entrepreneurs fail to do) and
and really finding out what they needed and where they
might be having some problems. All this simply adds up
to having a good relationship with your members or
colleagues rather than always thinking about what is
in it for you.
This type of attitude will do wonders for you not only in
the internet based business but in living and having a
successful enjoyable life.
3) Taking consistent effort –taking consistent effort but
within a framework of a sense of urgency. Creating value
based blogs or value based emails will give you a better sense
of contributing to the helpfulness of an internet based business.
It will also show that this is a learned process but one that
takes time and effort with an understanding of the long haul
for the kind of success that will be lasting.

accept and act upon. To change your circumstances you
need to change your thinking and subsequent actions.
