The only way to improve your life

by Armelle Dore Self Improvement
There is a habit most of us have when something bad happens to us. We blame everything around us. There is always something else that prevents us from succeeding. It might be the taxes, our relatives, the weather, our health condition, our financial situation... We truly believe and are convinced they are the true reason for our failures. To be honest, that was my daily game. And to some extent, It still is. In some situations, you can't imagine it comes down to ...

by Armelle Dore Self Improvement

Simple formula to get anything you want

by Armelle Dore Self Improvement
Since starting my journey as a digital entrepreneur, I have devoted part of my education time to mindset training and specifically to simple formulas to get what I want. I listen to a lot of audios. Right now, I am really into Jim Rhon. He had a unique way to say things in a simple yet, powerful manner. Plus, some quotes are funny as hell. I have on my phone right now, his personal development seminar (2 hours long audio). You can watch the video ...

10 truths series part 10: Choose an enthusiastic market

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Reference and Education
Have you heard of the brand Apple? That's a silly question, I know:) I have always been amazed by the long queue whenever a new iPhone is released. Apple customers are the most enthusiastic ones I have come across. They are willing to go through virtually anything to purchase the latest item from Apple. No one will argue with the fact that they make great products. But are they worth the price tags? But are they worth the price tags? I am not convinced to be honest:) For ...

10 truths series part 9: Provide value and solutions

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Reference and Education
In my opinion, most entrepreneurs out there forget about the basics of any business. Provide a valuable offer to a demand. I did too:) People are exposed to so many offers online that it's critical to stand apart from the crowd. And the best to do it is to provide value and solutions to your audience desperate problems. If you are reading my blog posts, you are probably someone who is willing to succeed online to achieve some personal and strong goals. You have probably ...

10 truths series part 8: Prepare to fail

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement, Reference and Education
Within my current digital entrepreneur training, I have come across a notion I didn't know about. Failing forward to success. See, up until now, there was no such thing as failing forward not to mention to success. Failing was failing. But, as I thought about my experience up until now, I realized every failure led me to this very point. I have learned what I don't want anymore. I have tried different strategies and I can now appreciate what doesn't work. I have also made my share of ...

10 truths series part 7: Focus on long term

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement, Reference and Education
We all want everything good to happen overnight and last forever. At least, I know I do. I believe I may be the least patient woman that has EVER walked this earth. Literally:) And believe me, I try hard to take my time and live in the moment. But I always get distracted by thoughts of wanting everything RIGHT NOW. Building a sustainable digital business, on the contrary, requires you being patient. I bet you can already see the struggle ahead for me ...

10 truths series part 6: Forget the get rich quick scheme

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Reference and Education
Let's face it. Anyone who has dived into the world of online opportunities felt, or at least almost, for a get rich quick scheme. Most of us did so because we were motivated by appealing goals. We were willing to do ANYTHING to make them happen. Now, there is nothing wrong with it. But at some point, let's be real. How many people you know built a sustainable and ethical business doing so? No one to my knowledge. So, like I did, please forget about ...

10 truths series part 5: Prepare to work hard

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement, Reference and Education
To be honest, I have mixed feelings regarding this topic I am about to talk about. Prepare to work hard! What's that even mean? I see it two ways:  1.Opportunities online are often (not always) sold as a get rich quick and easy schemes. But when you get down to business, you rapidly find out it won't be that quick nor easy. Note that it could be under certain circumstances and skills. But for most people, starting a digital business requires being prepared for a ...

10 truths series part 4: Belief and trust yourself.

by Armelle Dore Self Improvement
This post is no brainer, really! There is actually a say in French that comes to my mind now: "ça va sans le dire mais ça va encore mieux en le disant". I am going to attempt to translate it the best I can: " it goes without saying anything, but it's even better when you say it". I hope that makes sense. Otherwise, just let me know in the comment sections. So basically, this simply states that some things are so obvious that you may not feel the need ...

Value oriented mindset

by Armelle Dore Self Improvement
How about taking a break today from the 10 truths series? There is a specific topic I'd rather talk about :) In the early stage of your digital business, you may experience a period when you don't see any results. That means no leads, no comments under your articles... basically, you lack tangible results. To be honest, I am currently going through this phase, so I figured out this was a great idea for an article.  We may help each other. Me by ...

10 truths series part 3: Get over yourself.

by Armelle Dore Reference and Education
That's right! You read the title correctly: GET OVER YOURSELF! Now, by any means am I trying to be rude. I am trying to make a point. Have you ever hang out on Facebook groups for online opportunities? What do you see? I did it myself yesterday. What I saw was ads after ads for online business offers, endorsed by a guru, sorry a leader:) So, this guy is usually leaning back against a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, in front of a huge mansion. He basically ...

10 truths series part 2: Invest first of ALL in yourself

by Armelle Dore Reference and Education
When you start a business, every economic book you read will probably suggest setting a budget for your expenses on ads, materials, taxes... No one ever mentions YOU, at least not clearly. That's odd, right? Without you, there is no business.Yet, no one suggests investing in YOU, the entrepreneur. I am going to tell you something that will probably shake your beliefs: If there is one investment worth doing as an entrepreneur, it is definitely the one you do in yourself! You are the key ...

10 truths series part 1: Give first, sell second.

by Armelle Dore Reference and Education
Today, we are about to tackle the first part of this 10 truths series: Give first, sell second. Let me ask you something. Think about the place you go shopping for groceries. How is it organize? The cashiers are usually at the front and the groceries and goods in the back, right? That being said, have you ever been asked to pay before you have seen/chosen/picked up your goods? NEVER. And there is a reason for that. As a customer, you need to see the value ...

Introduction to the 10 digital truths series

by Armelle Dore Reference and Education
Today, guys, let's introduce the 10 truths series about building a sustainable digital business. As an entrepreneur, I know the struggle to earn money online.

Crucial series part 3: MINDSET, MINDSET, MINDSET...

by Armelle Dore Self Improvement, Reference and Education
Here is another important aspect of an entrepreneur journey that I disregarded with the results you are now familiar with: the mindset! Some think that this topic is just gibberish mumbo jumbo, others don't. To each his own. My opinion is this: I have failed online without it while others have been hugely successful as they say, thanks to it. So as I am not crazy, I am going to at least try it out. When I first did, I came across the infamous ...

by Armelle Dore Internet and Businesses Online, Reference and Education
Ok folks, time to go down the rabbit hole:) When it comes to online or digital business, learning is often considered optional. Now let me ask you a question: Have you ever worked in a company, that is to say for someone else, without some sort of training whether before or during your time as an employee? No one does or will. So why will it be different for a business you are building to be a vehicle to your most precious goals? There ...
