Use Compound Interest In Business

Albert Einstein said that the most powerful force in the universe is compound interest and it is either working for you or against you!

Everyone understands that compound interest applies to money.

compound interestYou can invest in something and accumulate interest which then begins to pay you interest on the interest which means that it is compounding. You are making money on your interest.

Or you can borrow money and pay interest, which when it is compounded, costs you money.

In both cases one day of interest is minor, yet when compounded it becomes huge.

Compound interest is either working for you or against you and it is your choice.

Compound Interest In Business

The principle of compound interest relates to everything it is applied to.

Just like the law of gravity (another principle), there are no exceptions.

It applies to your life, health and also to your business.

Let’s say that you eat a bag of chips today.

Chances are that it won’t kill you. If the results of poor eating choices were more immediate, then fewer people would be unhealthy, because the fear of death would stop them from continuing to make poor choices in their diets.

It is only when you eat a bag of chips every day that the choice becomes a powerful force that brings you ill health.

The choice of eating an apple today will not result in immediate health benefits, yet when eaten daily, the power will kick in and pay off with a healthy body.

Compound Interest In Direct Sales Business

Compound interest plays a role in your direct sales business too.

Make your calls today and it will affect your business a little.

Make a big impact habit of making your calls 5 days a week for the rest of your life and compound interest will become a force in your office, generating a solid and consistent stream of income.

It goes the other way too.

Skip your calls today and your business will not fold. Skip your calls continuously and your business will be shutting its doors.

Success Depends On Daily Investment

A day to day investment in your direct sales business will guarantee long term success.   One day at a time investing continuously in your business will result in success.

Albert Einstein believed that compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe. If it is not working for you, then it IS working against you.
Albert Einstein

Deb Bixler says:“Life Is Like A Razor Blade”.

Think about your health, your business and your entire life as a razor blade.

Life is a razor blade, and you are sitting on the cutting edge.

We make millions of choices each day and every choice is a slice of life.

Every choice you make is in itself only a razor-thin slice of life and, by itself, has little or no major impact on the future.

Every slice/choice of life you make is either positive or negative, and alone it is weak.

Yet every slice of life is compounded with the others to create the most powerful force in the universe.

Think about every choice you make in your life and do your best to make razor-thin slices on the positive side of life.  When you do so continuously they compound and become the most powerful force in the universe.

One small slice on the good side of life will drive your future in the right direction.

When you make too many slices on the negative side it will start to work against you. When you slice more on the positive side of life, you will leverage your results by using compound interest on your behalf.

Direct Sales Success

Running a successful home based business takes investment. A few of the many areas that you must invest in are:

  • willingness
  • time
  • money
  • attitude
  • emotions
  • education

In your business every choice is minor in terms of immediate results.

Yet on a long-term basis, the most powerful force in the universe will be working for you or against you…. your choice!

Successful people understand that life is about making razor-thin choices each day to choose their future and put the principle of compound interest to work for them.

Are YOU willing to choose success one day at a time?

    I’ve learned that consistently make conscious choices that align with our goals and plans, in all areas of our lives, will keep us moving up and on. I like the use of “compound interest” as a visualization. Great job, Deb!

    This is so true about incremental change.
    If you select 5 to 6 things that will move your direct sales business forward every day, and do those, you will see large incremental change in the space of every month. Is it making calls? Is it mailing the thank you note or hostess pack or recruiting pack the same day? What do you need to: Start Doing, Stop Doing, Do More Of, Do Less Of? It all counts toward those goals and future success. Thanks Deb for a great article.

    So often we can get discouraged, but need not to withdraw from the bank but deposit more–compound interest and persistence pays off! We just need to remind ourselves since it is our business.

    Shared by: Phyllis O'Neill:

    Do something daily to move your business forward. That is exactly what I try to instill in my team! We will get the same results if we keep doing the same thing. How many times have you heard people say, “Oh, that (business) just wasn’t for me …” … do you think they were REALLY doing something daily to move their business forward? Okay, off my soapbox!! LOL Great article, Deb!!!

    Great article – I love what you said – “day to day investment in your business will guarantee long term success” positive consistency is what I am working on this year! Terry

    This is a good way to look at business, so often I forgot that each day’s activities may not show results right away, but if I start thinking about them in terms of compound interest then I know that the payout for that days results will be compounded over time. Thanks for another great article!

    WOW…. Never thought of it quite like that before. Really hit me hard…. Thank you Deb!

    Shared by: Rob Dufour:

    This is very interesting way to look at my life and my business, I will be thinking about compound interest when I have to make my calls and want to wait until tomorrow.

    Consistency is definitely the key to having greater success. This is a thing I am going to focus on each day!!

    Awesome article Deb!! I’ve been following you for a while…been in the Elite Seller program…but really hadn’t sat down to read articles until now. I guarantee I will more now!!

    I’d heard you mention this term of compound interest before, but repetition is powerful. Today I think I really got it. I am reminded of the statement, “You are either taking steps toward your dream/goal, or takings steps away from it.”

    Another important tip to remind my team of the results of skipping days of working our business. Thank you

    I couldn’t agree more. When I indulge in laziness or a pity party and do not work my biz 5 days a week, I get 0 net return down the road!

    Well first off to the posters who have been in ill health, best wishes for continued good health.
    I see this article as meaning what we invest in now, pays off in the future. But we have to invest ever day consistently, in small steps. I believe consistency is one of the keys to selling success!

    This article reminds me of the saying that we are creatures of habit when it comes to everything else, but not when it comes to our businesses.

    Shared by: Ivette Muller:

    This article was not what I thought it was! It was a good reminder about doing a little each day to have an overall effect, rather than focusing on all the things I’m “unable” to do.

    Shared by: Crystal Earley:

    This post hit me as it did Fran above. Illness has me doing the same thing. What a wonderful way to take what sometimes feels like an overwhelming feat or obstacle more manageable and attainable. I may not be able to walk 2 miles everyday, but I CAN walk some each day.

    Shared by: Fran Sparks:

    This is an especially thought provoking post for me. Haveing been ill for the past 2 months, I have gotten out of the habit of DAILY activity. Even though still tiring easily, it helps me see the importance of even “just a little” every day, so as to compound on the positive side. Thanks Deb.

    I like the constant reminder… work your business like a business. And picking one thing to do in your business everyday. We all can find one thing we can do consistently.
