Joanna Vaiou: Achieving Success with a Business Opportunity Program

| December 17, 2009 | 15 Comments

Joanna Vaiou started her journey to entrepreneurship by buying into a business opportunity. A dynamic and passionate young woman from Greece, Joanna researched the options available for her until she found the right business opportunity that matches her goals, desires and skills. She joined a business opportunity program as an internet marketer and started her website SuccessBusinessMindset.com in order to earning from the Web.

Learn from Joanna what it takes to buy into a business opportunity and how to succeed with a business opportunity program:


How did you decide to be an entrepreneur?

I am a Bachelor Degree holder in Economic science and since I got my degree I ventured out in my country searching for inspiration and a JOB as all people do after finishing college. The word JOB did not sound so bad in my ears then. It was something that I had to do in order to become financially independent in time. I was not aware of that I would have to love my work in order to be effective and efficient, ultimately a happy and content person with my life! I did several jobs as an employee of others that mostly did not even like as persons. I was patient enough to save enough money for me to start something mine, a business on my own. I loved the idea of having a portable business that will allow me to be free, live abroad and expand my business globally, work from my home, or my favorite restaurant, everywhere I want as long as I have internet access.

Few months ago as I returned back home to Greece from my first trip abroad in New York, I researched very thoroughly online to find a suitable internet business opportunity for me and move on with my life, goals and purpose.

I Love Leadership, Freedom and Power, and have absorbed an abundant way of thinking and acting.

What is SuccessBusinessMindset.com? What are your objectives for your web site/blog?

SuccessBusinessMindset.com is my recent blog where I share personal development resources as well as home business – internet marketing information and videos.

My objectives for my blog are:

  1. Share the best home based business opportunity ever in personal development industry
  2. Let the whole world know about personal development, embrace the law of attraction and allow it to enter people’s lives and improve all aspects of it.
  3. Find serious entrepreneurs that will have the proper qualities to become leaders themselves and start their own legitimate personal development business and spread the word that Personal Development is the Key to Success in every business and in life.
  4. Provide the best information about internet marketing latest news and constant motivation for everyone that visits my site and have an area in their life that needs improvement.

What made you decide to start this blog?

I started this blog because it represents who I really am, it’s a way for me to express myself and let people know who I am and what I have to offer. A blog is much more personal than a straight single website and much more effective from a marketing point of view. It is dynamic and I have total control of it. Something that I REALLY loveJ.

SuccessBusinessMindset.com is my business, my baby in other words, which I take care of every day love and feed properly. I always wanted to be an entrepreneur, a writer and my own boss, I could not live with anything less than being the leader of my life. I love the internet world and the online marketing science, it is a great business that if you love it and you put into it the required focus, energy, time and effort it can change your life forever and allow you to live according to your desired lifestyle.

You are an authorized representative of a business opportunity company. Can you explain this business opportunity?

I joined a fast-moving business opportunity that attracts new business partners (independent business owners) every day all around the globe with standard requirements: 1) Good English Language skills and 2) Internet access. Plus the appropriate success mindset for business leadership and business development. They develop the appropriate mindset and release the unlimited potential of every human being that acknowledges that wants to change their life and are willing to work on themselves in order to become who they want to be granted the life they want to have. Along with the personal development educational aspect of this business opportunity, which is great for every individual separately for their own growth, a chance is given to create an online portable and highly compensated business by promoting the company’s products.

How do you earn from this business opportunity?

Through my work online people that are searching for a legitimate low cost home based internet business, find me and ask me more information about what I am doing.

I walk them through listening the webinar presentation in order to understand if they are a good fit with this business opportunity, if they like the products, the compensation plan and the whole entrepreneurial mindset.

If they feel they are a good fit with all the above they start with me and I guide them through the training they need in order to enter this online – internet marketing industry and learn how to become successful internet marketers and entrepreneurs.

As an authorized representative of this bizopp, I implement a Direct Sales business model where I was able to make high profit of 1000$ right after my very first sale of their products which I bought and used for my personal growth and mind development. For every new representative that starts this program through my guidance and mentoring I get paid the same amount of commission every time from my sales.

My start up cost to enter this business was 2000$ including my website cost. After that my only expenses are my marketing expenses, I have no rents, no employees, no 9-5 work, no dressing code, I work from the comfort of my home, I can live abroad and work my business anytime from anywhere.

For other women looking for business opportunities to promote, what do you think are the factors that they should look for — and avoid?

Firstly I suggest that every woman should find a company which products will like, really like. When you love the products that you promote and the business mindset then you will definitely be successful, sooner or later. Be aware of scams and especially people who promise you the stars and present their business opportunities sounding very quick and easy deals. To become financially free you will have to work, there are no shortcuts. You will need to give your time, focus, energy, passion and a decent amount of money for your business to evolve and grow. Do your own research and due diligence before you enter any business. Meet your potential mentor and test him, see if he or she is really qualified to lead you to success. Find a reliable company with a god name that has already some decent years of success established online.

It’s for the best to not experiment with ‘Test Businesses’ no matter how great some may present it to be. As far as what kind of online opportunity is better or preferable between Direct Sales or Multi-Level-Marketing Model, this is something that you will have to choose according to your personality. I prefer the direct sales model as my income is depends on me and my work and not from my down line. I wanted to grab the chance for high profits right after my first sale, so entering a multi-level-marketing company where I would have to wait long enough to make the huge down line in order to make a decent profit. In the end you will choose whatever works best for you.

How are you marketing your online business? 

I advertise my online business through multiple online marketing methods

  • Business Article Writing for my niche
  • Social and Business Networking sites: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Ecademy, etc.
  • Me on Facebook: (http://successbusinessmindset.com/facebook)
  • Classified ads, newspaper ads
  • Participating in business – internet marketing forums
  • Blog Marketing
  • Video Marketing
  • Offline Marketing (People are asking me what I do and I just speak to them what my business is all about and what it offers to me)

What lessons can you give other women entrepreneurs?

Before I close this interview I want to kindly advice all the women that are unsatisfied with their current personal or professional life:

  • You should never but never give up on your dreams, no matter where you live and how acceptable your aspirations are
  • If you believe in yourself that you can do better than you are rewarded by your boss
  • If you know what you really want to do in your life that would make you happy; if you have a clear answer to what your life’s purpose is – Make a plan…
  • Put consistent action to it
  • Educate yourself enough so you become reliable to others and trusted
  • Ask help from established reliable resources
  • Be patient
  • Be strong
    STOP Expecting for your life to change
  • Relying on Others, no matter who these people are and what they tell you: your parents, your partner, co-workers, bosses, friends, the government itself, get yourself together and ACT instead of standing still and suppressing your true desires and your purposes!
  • Be real, be genuine, be yourself, be nice, gentle, understanding of other people’s needs, mostly their motives concerning their research for an online business start-up.
  • Give people what they really need, teach them how to fish, don’t give them the fish ready.

Remember Always

Only you are responsible for your life and for your future
Whatever you do today, will determine who you will be tomorrow
If you don’t take control of your life, someone else will, & that will be forever
Live your life with Positivity, Enjoy Your Life! It’s short & wonderful to waste! Be a person of value & admiration, joy and happiness, purpose and positive energy.

    If you really did find a working formula that made you, say $1,000 a week online on average and it kept producing income no matter what, would you want to sell that idea to a bunch of noobs for $47 a pop and expect to retire on the proceeds? No way, man! It does not compute. It does not add up. And it does not make any sense to do that. I certainly don’t go shouting from the rooftops how I make my money online. Hell, I don’t want the competition taking a slice of my pie and neither would anyone who really does make good cash online

    Affiliate Marketing is a performance based sales technique used by companies to expand their reach into the internet at low costs. This commission based program allows affiliate marketers to place ads on their websites or other advertising efforts such as email distribution in exchange for payment of a small commission when a sale results.

  6. thanks a lot for the advice i really really need it now! even though you’re already in this business still if you allow other people decide for you, it’s just like doing your previous job. Take control of your life is the best motto. I think this piece of advice doesn’t mean to women only but to general, all kinds of people.

    doing business online is just the same as having business offline. the only different is doing online business have less effort = more money, while in offline business more effort (physically) = less money (compared to online).

    thanks a Joanna, i learned a lot from you. Hope more people you were able to help with.

    Interesting, I’m interested in managing a small business since I got interested in a lot of the business opportunities over at franchiseexpo.com. It’s worth a look if you’re interested in franchising a small business to see all the franchising opportunities in your area.

    after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.
