What Types of Home Based Business Opportunities Are There?

By Chris Rugh | April 2, 2012

Last year, home based businesses represented 12% of all businesses in the United States.

You know that I am a fan of small business, and a successful entrepreneur. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I am also a fan of home businesses. Although there are only two broad home business categories, those which sell ‘services,’ and those which sell ‘products,’ the viable home business opportunities are unlimited!

First, let’s talk about some of the types of home business opportunities which sell products. You can decide to sell products which you create/make yourself, or you can buy products from someone else, and re-sell them. You can launch a successful home business venture selling products which you make yourself, if …

How to Blog for Business

By Chris Rugh | March 19, 2012

Business blogging is crucial to the overall success of your business. You may say that you don’t have the time or talent to set up and write a business blog to which I say, “You can’t afford not to!” Why should you participate in business blogging? Let me count the ways:

Business blogging allows you to connect and interact with your clients and customers, no matter where you are, and no matter where they are. We work in a global marketplace, yet, business blogging helps you connect and interact in a way that none of the traditional marketing methods have allowed…at all hours of the day and night, 365 days a year!

Business blogging is appealing to customers and clients because …

What is a Social Entrepreneur and Why Should You Become One?

By Chris Rugh | March 5, 2012

Although Social Entrepreneurs have been around throughout history, the phrase wasn’t widely reported until the 1980s and is only now becoming a frequent niche label for businesses which focus on social change.
These days, some of the most fulfilled entrepreneurs are social entrepreneurs. Do you know why? It’s because they’ve found a way to work and make a living while achieving social change. “Wow, what a novel concept!” you’d say. And I’d say… “WTF, haven’t you listened to a word I’ve been saying? Really?”
Just so we’re clear, a social entrepreneur is a person who recognizes a social problem and applies business principles to create, manage, and carry on a business which has as its primary focus, achieving social or environmental …

Top 5 Things I Teach in My Life Coaching Business

By Chris Rugh | February 17, 2012

You don’t have to be a Fortune 500 CEO to benefit from the life coaching business.
The life coaching business evolved out of the idea that most people need a sounding board, but not everyone needs a shrink. Right? Humans are meant to interact, and usually we get perspective when we bounce ideas off someone we respect.
Sometimes the people I encounter confuse coaching with counseling. The life coaching business differs from counseling in many ways, but the most significant one is that a psychiatrist delves into your past to find the root causes of your unhappiness. A life coach focuses on the present. Where are you now? What do you want to accomplish in the future? The life coaching business …

By Chris Rugh | January 10, 2012

What’s the best way to ensure your success in 2012? Interact with a business professional who’s living the business coaching life style.

Do you remember this show that first aired in the 80’s called Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous? Although I was just a kid, I used to like to watch that show. It came on way before reality TV shows like MTV’s Cribs had even been dreamt of. When I watched it, I wanted to live like a celebrity. I wanted the fancy house and cars…

Today, many people would say I have the lifestyle of a rich and famous person. While that is partially true, it would be more accurate to say that I have a business …

How Does Life Business Coaching Help You Reach Specific Goals?

By Chris Rugh | December 22, 2011

Life business coaching has that unique factor which only a business coach can provide…accountability.

Before the popularity of the television show, ‘The Biggest Loser’, people who wanted to lose weight would sign up for Weight Watchers. What made these programs work over just trying to lose weight on your own was accountability. The thought of having another person weigh you and see that you were overweight or obese, was an incentive for weight loss in itself. Today, contestants on ‘The Biggest Loser’ know that not only is their coach watching their progress, but so is all of America! No pressure, right?
