What Is The Difference Between Succeeding And Failing In Your Home Business?

Why are some people successful in their home business and others not so successful in their home business? We are going to cover a number of reasons why some people make it in home business and other people do not make it in their home business. Home business is just like anything else you plan to do in life, it takes work. It also takes effort and not just effort once every couple of weeks but it takes daily continous effort to make your home business succeed.There is a quote in a movie with Tom Hanks called " A League Of Their Own". In the scene Tom Hanks is talking to his all-star catcher, who just quit the team, he tells her " If it were easy everyone would do it". That quote is so true in todays home business, if it were
really as easy as pushing a button and making millions don't you think everyone would be making millions upon millions. Only the strong survive holds true for home business or any business for that matter. No matter who you are, you will go through ups and downs. Most people quit as soon as they hit the first stone in the road. Which is the number one reason why people never fulfill their dreams.

So people quitting is the main reason most people never make it and just not in home business but in anything in life. In order to succeed in anything in life you must have the mind set where quitting is not an option. If you quit you never get to fulfill your dreams or goals. Once you start quitting it becomes a habit and once quitting is a habit you are then officially a quitter. So what if you haven't had the type of success you had dreamed of yet. Keep trucking. When the going gets tough the tough get going. If you quit on yourself you will never be successful in anything you do in life.

The next reason so many people never make it is because they are listening to morons. Yes and I said morons. Remember most people will knock you anytime you try something new or you try something they are too afraid to do themselves. I have seen many people give up on their dreams just because some Average Joe who makes 7 bucks an hour flipping burgers, told them it was not possible. Remember to consider the source when you listen to advice from people. Everyone has an opinion and you must consider the source when listening to their opinion. Remember "Opinions are like (you know what) everyone has one."

You see everyone has doubts and everyone has opinated people trying to influence them. The difference between winners and losers is winners stick it out to the end. No matter what happens, no matter how bad things go on, winners stick it out. Losers quit! That is the difference. Winners cut out negative people and add more winners to their social circle. Losers let other losers influence their lively hood. I will not lie to you and say starting a business is an easy road. It is not, there will be ups and downs but everyone has gone through them from Donald Trump to Bill Gates. The difference is they believed in themselves and kept going not matter what happened and no matter what anyone said.

Home Business Chicago-Home Based Internet Business Resources - Why Legit E Biz Succeeds

Hopefully this article will shed some light on legitimateonline business while dispelling some of the misconceptions.We'll discuss emails from nowhere, why you get them and what todo with them. I'll tell you about the investigations I've doneinto finding a real business opportunity online. We'll alsodiscuss the key ingredients that allow legitimate onlinebusiness to prosper. Let's go.

From Whence Does It Come? Do you ever wonder why you get all of those emails from whoknows where? I did. Once I started investigating I realized thatI was generating all of that inbox clutter myself. I alsorealized it wasn't such a bad thing if I took the time to findthe right business. You see, if you have EVER and I mean ever expressed an interestin a home based business; either online, through the mail,responding to a survey, etc. you are liable to receiveinformation via email about such businesses. So maybe you canview those emails in a slightly different light.

What Next? After 5 plus years of investigation I found that all of thoseemails I was receiving were actually a blessing in disguise.That's right, a blessing. I've always wanted to work from myhome, on my terms, on my time and make a legitimate living. OnceI started to visit some of the sites in those emails, Idiscovered several online opportunities that "sounded" great.Sounding great is one thing, putting money in my bank accountwas quite another. I continued to pour through "emails fromnowhere" and I finally realized that there were safe,inexpensive, results-oriented programs out there that wereperfect for me. Keep in mind that I didn't just jump at everyopportunity that an email offered.

Misconceptions Owning an online business is just like owning a real business.Owning an online business is just like owning a real business.Did you read that closely? The BIGGEST mistake that people makeis misunderstanding that. It takes time and effort and a littlebit of money. The cool thing about online business is that youcan get up and running for a fraction of the cost of starting abusiness in your hometown. The flip side of that coin is that ittakes just as much effort. The reason people don't succeed inonline businesses is the same reason they fail opening a serviceoriented business locally. They aren't willing to put in thetime that is required to make it work.

When you're the boss you have to be self-motivated. You have todo it all: Accounting, marketing, follow up, follow up,advertising, etc. Most people want somebody to hand them aprogram that makes them a zillion dollars without any effort.It's not out there. If you want to start and grow your onlinebusiness it takes effort, period.

Why It Works I own a small construction company and one of our marketingtechniques is to offer a finders'fee for any of our customersthat recommend us to a friend, co-worker, family whomever, andwe sign them up. It is great for them and great for us. Theymake a little extra money for doing nothing but getting thepotential customer in front of us and we get extra business fora fraction of the cost of our annual advertising.

Here's a question for you. Let's say you were working on aproject in a customer's back yard and as you were working aneighbor came over and asked you to look at a job at theirhouse. Let's say you got the job at the neighbor's house. Now,the customer you were first working with didn't refer theneighbor to you. In fact, the customer didn't even know theneighbor talked to you. Should the customer get the finders'fee? In this situation, no, the customer didn't have anything todo with us getting the other job other than hiring us to do hisjob and us being in the right place at the right time to talk tothe neighbor

BUT, in online business, you get the finders' fee EVERYTIME.That's the beauty of a legitimate online home-based business.When you put in the time and effort to make your online businesswork, the system gets the job done for you. And it generallygets it done for pennies on the dollar compared to myconstruction business.

Home Business Chicago-Home Business Tips - Time Or Money - Pick One

Home Business Chicago-Home Business Tips - Time Or Money - Pick One

I get the biggest laugh out of people who write to me and say things like the following:
"Dear sir...I am thinking of starting my own home based business but I don't know where to begin. All I do know is that I don't have a lot of time to put into it (maybe 2 hours a day) and I don't have any money spend. But I want to be making about $5,000 a month within 30 days. Please tell me how I can do this."

Get a job!

I'm sorry if that sounds cold, hard and cruel but that is the reality of it. If you want to start a business from your home, you're going to have to either put a lot of time into it OR a lot of money into it. Yes, it is actually possible to do one or the other.

See, contrary to what people tell you, you can make money on the Internet without spending much money, if any at all. I'm not saying it's easy, but it is certainly possible. The problem with this approach is that it is very time consuming. So if you only have a couple hours a day to work on your business and don't plan on putting any capital into it, then expect the results to come very slowly. There is no way around it.

The flip side to this, and the good news to those who have a lot of money to throw into their business, you can actually set up several advertising campaigns that will bring you a terrific income, as long as you keep pouring the money into them and have a product that people want. That's all there is to it. By using paid advertising, and I will give you probably the best source in a moment, you can pretty much limit your home business activities to an hour or so a night. But be prepared to spend a boat load of money on quite a few things besides advertising. Because if you want to be able to support all the sales you're going to get, you're going to also have to outsource a help desk system.

Probably the best source of advertising online, though there are others, is Google Adwords. Their advertising is laser targeted to people who are looking to buy. All you have to make sure of is that your keywords are properly targeted and your ads are solid. If you can't write them yourself, you can outsource this as well. Like I said, if you have money, you can do all of this quickly.

Of course, not everybody has a boat load of money to throw into their business. That's where time is required. Advertising such as article marketing and blogging will work but will take longer to bring in results. On the plus side, they're better than cheap...they're free.
Bottom line is real simple...if you want to run a successful home business, be prepared to sacrifice either time or money.

There is no magic button to push that will bring you success overnight for free.
To YOUR Success,

Steven Wagenheim
