Stories About Growing My Business!

There are many stories that I can share with you about how my business has grown over the years and I am willing to share these stories with you but the main concept that I think might benefit you the most is that my focus has always been on what it is that I am doing at any particular moment in time - without that focus the work that I have been doing overall would not have benefited anyone - In other words - I must do at any given point in time - my best for each individual that I have right in front of me in order to be able to go on and serve anyone else - If I did not do my best for any particular individual - that "mistake" - "error" or "accident" would be haunting me throughout the rest of my days - In other words - where could I possibly go in order to hide from myself - cover up the mistake that I had done and shoved it all under the rug in order to be able to take a deep breathe and go on to the next assignment - It has not been that way - since each and every person has been the greatest opportunity staring me in the face and it has been my challenge to make sure that I have done my best to meet the needs of each of these individuals who have entrusted me with the challenge that they have been facing at that point in time - So, In that light of things - what is your specific challenge at this point in time - I will do my best - whatever it is to point you to what I have produced in order to guide you to find the path that will accelerate you in the direction and at the right speed for where it is that you want to go - But most of all I share with you the main philosophy that has allowed me to make such great quantum leaps in my own business growth: The slower you go the faster you get to where you want to be because if you are enjoying where you are you don't have to go anywhere! ………………………………………………… 7-6-2012GABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTUVWXY by Walter Paul Bebirian

About thinking!!!!

I think and think and think and think and I enjoy this so very much that I never have to stop - in fact I think that thinking is the most exciting activity of human life!!! considering it is does happen to be what is unique about human being that set us apart from all other living beings - I mean think about it - thinking - can give you the ultimate pleasure feelings towards just about any activity that you are partaking in and then it can heal any wounds or hurt that you are suffering - it can give you ideas to improve and embellish just about any situation that you are in and most of all - in our society at least - it can most definitely direct you towards ways of making money - a very exciting and pleasurable concept for so many individuals - so go for it - think your way towards whatever life you desire and enjoy it during every step along your journey - for that thinking is your great power over everything else in the world and over your own destiny - think again and you are in heaven now my friend - just think - you don't have to ever die to get there - think - ………………………….. 11-29-2008BABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTUVW by Walter Paul Bebirian

Yes!!! - Let's Play Some Games!!!! Most Defiinitely!!!

yes let's play some games - however, I only play games that either I create or which people that I know personally have created a game and in which - when played all the participants playing the game have a chance to actually earn real money - currently - the game I am playing which will earn the most money for both myself and you is this one: the next most important game that I play was created by my friend's wife and her business partner from Australia: here is a little video where we were celebrating the first birthday of this little business that they created: and then there are a number of related to or similar other games that you or anyone you know can play as well: but the really fun part of these games is that you or an organization or a cause such as the welfare of cats or dogs or the eradication of breast cancer or even your family members can benefit from your winning at any one of these games especially the first one - since when you win with that project you win really big - starting at hundreds of thousands of dollars and going to perhaps millions of dollars all with the sale of one item - so I invite you and anyone that you know to either go for playing any one of these games by yourself or ---- if you would like - partner up with any of your friends from anywhere in the world and enjoy the company of your friends while you play the games - ………………………………………………………..

Business and some really Random Musings -

well – from what I see in the business world – each and every business is unique in its own way of doing things – the way that it operates – how it goes about finding or capturing clients or customers and then how from that point it begins growing – and continues on in the face of all sorts of financial storms and hurricanes – not many business go on forever and the strengths and weaknesses of each are not always quite visible to the spectator public – even to the investor in whatever business we might be looking at – one very positive business that we might look at for a moment is Coca Cola – which many people utilize as an example when thinking and referring to branding – but there are developments – changes and nuances occurring each and every day in such a company as this – not always visible to the casual observer but happening never the less – take a look at their products: my point is that not one single product is developed – managed – marketed and sold by one single person – but a whole slew of people or teams and then the bottling and distribution for each of these brands are actually managed by various independent bottling companies: in fact here is an official list currently introduced to the public by the Coca Cola company itself: now what is my point? well, none of us artist have enough years (at least most artists don’t) to build such an empire as Coke has done till this point in time, however – there are tools now available to each and every artist which can help them *(including myself now) to market their (my) art to individuals throughout the world who are interested in both viewing as well people who are interested in purchasing various art work – but – there might be some changes to both your and the potential customer’s thinking before such tools will be of any value to either side of the equation – what I mean is – that the delivery system for most businesses back when Coke was started was most of the time a horse and buggy – that went for Coke – Exxon *(Standard Oil): – Heinz: – Entenmann’s: – Hershey’s : and a little research will show that company’s like Coke are sometimes still mulling over their mistakes that they made 20 years ago: but what we have here is something to learn – lots to learn – there are videos galore about other artists and each of their varying careers as well as business efforts but – we also have a whole lot of tools to have our work even seen – let alone presented for sale to people from al over the globe in a fashion never before possible to any individual artist so it may be a prudent move to focus on utilizing these new tools since if we look back at the horse and buggy utilized by most of the companies mentioned above – within a few years of the invention or introduction of the motor car into the system of delivery – there were hardly any horse and buggies that were able to compete with this vast new way of distributing goods throughout the country on the ever growing highway system – and now we have the digital highway – vast – unpredictable in its bursting growth and able to penetrate countries throughout the world with little effort – do you want to limit yourself to a few viewers stopping by your booth at a local art fair? or even a gallery in Manhattan? things are rapidly changing - …………………………... 11-21-2012DABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTUV by Walter Paul Bebirian

…………………………………….. well – I stressed above the delivery systems and how they have changed for the different companies that I have given the links to above but I also gave the link above to the different products that Coca Cola now has in place to offer its potential and ongoing customers so that they can find the products that best suit their needs at any point in time during their day – this is a tremendous challenge for any artist to undertake – but there is a way to go way beyond any artist before us has ever done – by using the tools – whether you are an oil painter – acrylic painter – pencil drawing or watercolorist – to be more productive with your business and that is to offer prints of your originals to the world as well – this was not available years ago – the best a person could do is make a limited number of prints before a plate they were utilizing became worn out and had to be destroyed limiting the number of good prints that could be produced for any image – but this restriction does not have to be followed any longer with the ability of digital files to be reproduced exactly and in high quality to produce a very pleasing product – but beyond that – for myself I work strictly in digital now -after working some 43 years with film and processing and different paint and drawing mediums – I will never go back because for me I have found the fantastic feeling in being able to take a ride in a modern day motorcar as opposed to riding the horse and buggy and having all there is to do to keep that horse fed and alive and living somewhere – but in addition *(my thoughts I think began to go off in different directions for a moment) I can and do create art ceaselessly without having to concern myself with whether or not I need to make a sale to go on and create the next work – there is a new paradigm and shift which I am not sure everyone reading this or who will read this can readily see – let’s just say that my main client in the moment and over time – is myself – and I am creating my own collection of art of which I am the main and biggest collector and so —- let me see – what does this mean – beyond eating and living somewhere there is not very much anyone can do with money besides make more of it or well you can have a collection of cars and boats but what the really super rich people do is collect art over time after they have *(in most cases — there are certain exceptions) accumulated and amassed their great fortunes – but now I have created and posses the great collection of my own art work and I am sharing it with anyone in the world who is willing to put the time into viewing what I have to offer and (here is my offering - "The Most Powerful Idea On The Planet") now that Facebook’s Zuckerberg has announced that he will begin a project to make the Internet available to some 5 billion people who cannot otherwise afford to have such a connection – now things will start to really begin to change for all of the artists who see this as an opportunity to share the art with the rest of the world – just some thoughts and let’s say some personal goals – set out by me – the beginning of what I am calling my “Infinity Project” following on the heals of my “Doubling Project” – this is the natural growth for me - …………………………………. 12-25-2012ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQR by Walter Paul Bebirian

About the "Doubling Project" and its importance in my business -

well - here is the thing - I would imagine that although there seems to be many things that individuals all know about today - like SEO and blogging and well just about anything that some expert claims is the greatest new way about doing one thing or the other - but the one thing that I do and did from years ago before the Internet which brought me business back in 1976 and still does today that works better than anything else that I have found - is giving out my business cards with my "Doubling Project" because as I foresaw before the Internet (when I was being enticed to utilize magazine and newspaper ads) and after that when the Internet came along - there is nothing like a person having a business card (that stands out) that they hold in their hand and just simply refuse to let go of - and well that is (fortunately) what has happened with my business cards and with so many of the people who I have handed them out to - they have somehow (without me knowing or understanding exactly why) have been compelled to remember that card - place it in a very visible place in their own environments and then chosen to call me once the need for what I do has arisen in their own personal lives - I am extremely lucky and thankful that I had gotten the drive, motivation and inspiration to create such a card and the pure stamina to be able to continue on handing them out to people on a continuous basis - if there is nothing else that I can bring to this group ever - it is this that I share with you now that has done the most out of anything in the world that has kept me in business throughout the many years since I began my business in 1976 - and although I have never generated millions and billions of dollars - I have been very fortunate to be able to keep on doing this business exactly as I wish to conduct it - on a steady and peaceful pace and also to grow it by the addition of my art to the online arena and really taking this presentation to the world at large - this ability to share my art with people from all over the world is something that I had never dreamed of when I took my very first photograph back in 1958 and I have seen such quantum leaps in the ability to present and reach so many more people than I had ever imagined - that I never want to leave this world if only for the excitement to be here and see just what will be the next wonderful development that will always turn up around the next corner - …………………………………………………………… 11-16-2012DABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRT by Walter Paul Bebirian

My Answer to - Sabrina Gibson's Question - How do you add value to a GROUP? How would you define Value?

In the Facebook Group: Grow your business with Social Networking The Group Founder and Leader Sabrina Gibson posed this question How do you add value to a GROUP? How would you define Value? and I simply answered this way: well - adding value to any group of people in general would be that I share with the individuals in the group either some information that they all can utilize or some tools that would help each and every person - how much value each and every individual would gain or benefit from whatever I have to add to the group would, however, depend on the efforts, creativity, time and thought put into each addition that I present to the group by each individual themselves - for example - for my answer here if I simply stopped above with the answer that I gave above and did not go further with the details after "well - adding value to any group of people in general would be that I share with the individuals in the group either some information that they all can utilize or some tools that would help each and every person" - and did not emphasize that it still remains up to each and every individual to place the added words "how much value each and every individual would gain or benefit from whatever I have to add to the group would, however, depend on the efforts, creativity, time and thought put into each addition that I present to the group by each individual themselves" then I would actually be short changing everyone here without this qualifier and emphases that I am attempting to motivate everyone here towards increasing their participation with what activities are going on here - why? first I know as a group leader Sabrina Gibson has both knowledge and expertise that she has to offer - second it takes time to think of these types of questions and to word them in such a manner that they are both comprehensible and workable into just about anyone's business - but also - I know as an individual person (which we all here fit into this category) I must have something unique - so special perspective - knowledge and ideas which at least for myself and perhaps for some other members of the group here will make my interpretations and explanation to the entire group have some meaning - like an added ingredients to a cake mix or special amount of one of the ingredients to the spices of a meat or vegetable dish - so I am searching for ways in this answer to give my own unique perspective and ingredient - now of - this seems like too long an answer and annoying to the other members of the group - it may be possible that those members are not willing to put into this group the effort necessary to understand what I am saying and the also may not be willing to put this much effort into even give their own answer - now I am a little surprised that with groups in general many members may be part of a group but (and especially in such a valuable group as this) many people do not seem to be interested in actually participating in some of the exercises that Sabrina happens to put forth and therefore the value of the entire group begins to suffer from lack of interest - and although each and every individual here must be extremely busy attempting to run their own business and earn as much money as possible - it is a fact that success for each and every one of the members here cannot be based on money alone - there must be some other motivating factor behind your efforts and mine besides simply making money - some cause that you find compelling and that keeps you motivated day and night to keep on working as hard and as smart as possible to put every single ounce of your energy into the details and different elements of your business in order to make it run to your satisfaction - this is the case for the entire silicon valley which eventually gave us this tool that I am utilizing at this very moment to communicate with all of you - the motivation was to protect our country - the United States of America from attach - and therein lies the rub - because without this main focus non of what we have in our world today in the way of advanced technology would have ever been designed and created in such an advanced and magnificent way - and without such a motivation within the minds of each and every one of us here participating in this group - there will be some element in our mix - our cake or dinner mix or our souls as we continue on with our work that will be seriously missing from the entire picture - and so it is that element or elements that I search for daily to not only add to my own mix but also to the mix of everyone else on the planet who is willing to take the time and see for themselves what I have to offer as an individual! ………………………………………………………………………… 9-9-2013FABCD by Walter Paul Bebirian

Where are they?

Well it certainly looks from the absence of any posts on this blog in what seems quite a while that there have been no random thoughts in my mind but the truth is quite the contrary which means that I have either not been interested in writing them down because they have been so captivating or that there have been so many of them that I have not had the time or the focus to even begin to think about which ones to actually write down here - I will say this though - that the truth of the matter lies somewhere in between both answers - and that is all that I can say as I poke my head out for a breather right now - and I dare say - if this is the case with me - then something similar may also have been true going on with Van Gogh in his letters where we are privileged only to gain access to mere glimpses of what the man was thinking as opposed to a complete dialog of internal muses thoughts - intentions - doubts - feeling and so much more that goes into any human life: ……………………………………….
