Visualize What Your Successful Home Business Would Look Like

Let’s just look at the work you are doing and if you are enjoying it at all or not. Likely when you are starting out you will be working on over-drive. While this is certainly admirable and necessary from time to time, it shouldn’t be the norm. Or do you enjoy being really engaged and focused?

Realize that you are building over time and you may be on the foundation level at this point. The foundation of course is the most critical level because everything that happens after that is built on that premise. So it may be best to get all ducks in a row at least to some degree, if only conceptually at this point before we try to proceed.

Be real as far as what you believe you can accomplish in the short and mid-range target goals. What would it be like if 3-6 months from now, you were happy with what you did so far and know you are making progress even if you can’t

Take Control Where You Can – Start a Business from Home

If you are still working at a job, hopefully you like what you are doing, are being paid fairly and will be able to keep the position. None of the above is a given. Sometimes we must do things we are not crazy about just to support ourselves, sometimes we are not paid what we are worth or as much as we need to live well; sometimes we find our job is gone through no fault of our own. That’s the way it is.

The idea is to be prepared for any eventuality. It is a really tough thing to be worried about it after the fact. For example it is Friday afternoon at work and you get a ‘pink slip’ out of the clear blue sky. If they have any decency at all (and are in a position to), they are giving you pay in lieu of notice or at least notice of 14 to 30-days. (Friday is the day industry recommends letting people go as this gives them the weekend to recover from

Start a Business at Home and Fortify Your Survival

There are so many reasons why having an extra income would work really well. If you are like many people who live paycheck-to-paycheck, there is rarely anything to ‘save’ unless you are very disciplined about it. It may take some real, tangible goal to motivate you to save money. However it is still true ‘you can’t get blood out of a turnip’.

start up

You might want to save money for a ‘rainy day’ aka an emergency, where perhaps you have medical or dental co-payments, or your car breaks down. Something of this nature can really bite if you are already stretching things just to get by. Another total crisis would be losing your job suddenly and trying to piece things together to get by until you find a new position. Having money saved would make the stress of this situation so much easier.

Or maybe you are stressed about your bills and how you have really

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say To Have a Successful Home Business

You hear all the time ‘build a relationship’, ‘build trust’ when talking about how to network and develop your business. Whether or not you are completely open and receptive, skeptical, or completely contrary, you won’t trust somebody for long who doesn’t keep their word. Trust and respect really do go hand in hand.

handshake

We should always give the benefit of the doubt at least initially, and give the person a chance to clarify or explain the situation — (an apology is very cool, but only goes so far after multiple times). No excuse for rude behavior like being chronically late or no-show for appointments, or failing to return your call or answer your email, even after you made 2-3 attempts. (…calling to say you will be late BEFORE you are actually late goes a long way.)

It must be qualified here that it is of paramount importance to be responsive (have

How to Stay Motivated When Working at Home on the Internet Marketing

Do You Agree ‘There is No Truth, Only Perception’? In some ways it seems true but in others not since the truth is the truth no matter who can’t see it. One way that it could be true is when you look at something like attitude, for example your attitude about working.

work-at-home

Do you like to work? If yes then you probably have a pretty good time and the busier you are the more you thrive. You are creative about your work and are always looking for ways that you can improve how you do things. You take pride in being efficient and accurate and derive a great deal of gratification when you have completed a project.

If you really don’t particularly like to work, that is, you would much rather be doing something else, that’s ok. We need balance in our lives and we should make time for living the other aspects of our lives besides working. Maybe if you are s

How is Internet Marketing Like Sports?

Ever hear the saying ‘practice makes perfect’? By practicing, athletes build their strength and skill. As they continue on they reach plateaus and if they keep their momentum going, they continue to progress. It is the same with marketing when you say that it is about building and sustaining momentum.

IM-target

The same comparison could be made for artists as well. They keep practicing and learning new techniques. Even in the military they continually test their endurance and hone their skills at using weapons and hand-to-hand combat. Again, marketing is much the same in that the more we practice the better we will get.

In the sense of building momentum this is due to another very relevant factor which is that most people will not respond. So you have to redouble your efforts and get enough volume going that those people won’t matter. Eventually you will be able

Home-based Business Start-Up – Beware of Energy Rip-offs

Mindset is everything when it comes to stepping out on a limb to try something new. Everybody will encounter various obstacles because that’s just life. Everybody comes to the table with skills and experience they have acquired along the way. Some will need to learn more than others. It is not just technical (computer/Internet) or marketing and sales skills that will carry the day. In fact without the right mindset nothing else will ever have a chance.

homebased-business-powerwords

The worst motivation killers are as follows: Being unrealistic in your expectations as far as time. You somehow got it in your head that everything is instant or miraculous and that success just comes because you want it to. Which leads to number two: When you don’t see any results immediately you will become discouraged and skeptical. When you realize you will need to really work

Don’t Just Work to Earn Money, Fight to Make a Profit

Making a profit is usually always beyond the level of income that you have with a job if you are an average person without a professional/academic degree. They paid the dues on the front-end and many struggled to go to school for years at great expense of both time and energy. Many times they had to have jobs that paid minimum wage.

We may have to work a little harder and a little longer and might never make as much, but no reason we can’t have enough or even plenty of money. We can, if we can find a way to have multiple streams of income which might ‘even out’ or equate to a decent amount of money when added together with our day job wages or salary.

Yes two jobs. Day job and night and weekend job online. You heard it was called a home office – when in fact it can become like living in an office. For example, like when you are havin

Challenge Yourself to Increase Your Income Right Now

If we have a job then our income is limited to our standing agreement with our employer. If we are fortunate this is reviewed each year in our performance evaluation and if the company is doing ok you may receive a merit increase and/or a cost of living increase. Sometimes though you don’t receive any increases for a few years or more, again depending on the health of the company.

Health of the company can infer a few things other than how well they are doing financially speaking. It can also refer to mental or psychological health. This is dictated largely by the corporation but more directly by management. An antagonistic, hostile manager or supervisor who is incapable of motivating employees can really make people sick. After all we spend most of our waking life working and if we don’t feel appreciated or make enough money to enjoy life, it can really take a toll.

Sometimes management feels you are being paid well enough and they may purposely ignore what y

All Things in Moderation – Even Work at Home

Too much of a good thing is still too much! We need a balance in whatever we do. Even with food that is considered fattening or unhealthy, if you eat healthy most of the time you can get away with one time eating something bad. The same principle if you just limit your portions on both good and bad foods, and get some exercise in your daily routine, nobody will know you have been naughty.

Just as you can literally shorten your life or risk your life by exercising too much, the same is true for work. We do need to work as part of our life and at times, like for example when starting a new business that we may work extended hours. We may be working more than 8-hours a day, working on our days off, and worst of all not taking any breaks. You may be okay to do this a few times off and on, but on a regular basis you are abusing yourself.

There is no business that is more important than your health, both mental and physical. To have health we need balance. In fact, if yo
