Social networking has impacted the way businesses are done. Many young entrepreneurs have made fortunes just because they know how to leverage social media for business. Unfortunately, so many others struggle with it. Many entrepreneurs, though they are good with traditionally well known methods of marketing, are not able to adapt to social media correctly and end up losing out so much potential every day to their competitors.

Leveraging Social Media For Business Success - Best Practices

Sometimes it's lack of knowledge. But, in most cases, it's lack of willingness to learn and change. I recently had a conversation with an entrepreneur struggling to just keep the shop open because of the marketing challenges. While talking about internet marketing and leveraging social media for her business, she informed me that she is already doing it and nothing is working.

I had a great time reading some of the amusing tales from a story book about the famous Akbar and Birbal last week. One of the stories that caught my attention was about a dream that emperor Akbar had one night about losing his teeth and what happened after that. Let me share the story here.

 

Akbar Birbal Stories - The Story Of Emperor's Dream About Losing Out His Teeth

 

By the way, if you are new to Akbar and Birbal tales, here is a quick introduction according to Wikipedia:

Birbal was the (Wazir-e Azam) of the Mughal court in the administration of the Mughal emperor Akbar. He was one of his most trusted members along with being a part of Akbar's inner council of nine advisors, known as the Navaratna, a Sanskrit word meaning nine jewels. Birbal's duties in Akbar's court were mostly military and administrative, but he was also a very close friend of the emperor, who appreciated Birbal for his wit and wisdom, often involving humorous exchanges.

In a recent networking event, I had an opportunity to engage in a very interesting conversation with a senior sales manager of a large firm. I got a chance to ask him a few questions and learn a few things from him.

        GET UP AND WIN THE RACE

Whenever I start to hang my head in front of failure’s face,
    my downward fall is broken by the memory of a race.
A children’s race, young boys, young men; how I remember well,
    excitement sure, but also fear, it wasn’t hard to tell.

They all lined up so full of hope, each thought to win that race
    or tie for first, or if not that, at least take second place.
Their parents watched from off the side, each cheering for their son,
    and each boy hoped to show his folks that he would be the one.

Faced with what is right, to leave it undone shows a lack of courage. ~Confucius  [tweet this]

A few years ago when I was exposed to the network marketing business industry, I got two sets of information almost at the same time from two different sources. Interestingly, they were also just opposite to each other.

The set of people who showed me the business idea, were very positive and passionate about it. They were highly educated people with high profile professional careers. In short, they had what I wanted to have in terms of money, education and success professionally speaking. They shared why they chose network marketing and showed me why it was a good idea for me to give it a serious consideration.

The other set of people were my colleagues and a few friends who were around the same level in their careers as myself. I started to get their inputs when I asked them of their opinion of this business idea (As I always did before doing anything new). Many of them were aware of this industry and yet they were not participating because they believed it wasn't a good idea.

Have you been in a situation where you are thinking about spending time with family while at work and then, at home you found yourself worrying about the job? It’s not very uncommon and personally, I have caught myself doing that many times and then thinking, "How can I reduce stress and increase my productivity?"

Living like that is very stressful way of living. It becomes hard to be productive at work and enjoy the family time while at home (and if you relate to this situation, you will agree). Naturally, a stressed mind can’t be effective at anything and if soon we do not make some changes, it drains our motivation, gives fatigue and in some case, it may cause some relationship troubles as well.

Just out of college, I was looking to start my career when I got introduced to this newly married couple. They were made for each other and especially I was fascinated by their love story with solid twists and turns. Soon we became good friends.
