You would have to know my wife to recognize the effect this was going to have on my marital bliss. My wife is an outstanding person but wants nothing to do with telephone internet marketers. She did not want to come to the phone and he would not go on unless she did. Eventually I did convince her to listen to him on the speaker. He asked her a bunch of questions about my character and then stated he had the perfect program for us. In fact he had 3 perfect plans for us. One plan was ,000.00 and another was ,000.00 and the last was ,000.00. After my wife gave me the official “you have to be nuts” ogle, she walked out of the room shaking her head.
Don’t rush your decision – Too many people get online and choose the first business that they find which is a huge mistake. You want to take your time and be sure you are choosing the right one for you or you will soon find yourself jumping from one opportunity to another.
First of all, a cheat sheet is nothing more than that.a list of tasks for a particular project. The list in itself is not detailed. It’s just a list. But each item on the list should be described in such a manner as to leave no doubt in your mind what has to be done. For each person, that’s going to be different. For example, for one of my tasks, my cheat sheet says “Write articles for Ezine articles.” Now, I know what that means. I don’t have to have a big long explanation as to what the involves. But some people might have it broken down further into, “Write articles on acne, warts, moles and cold sores.” That way they know exactly what articles they’re writing.
Education. Regardless of your age, extra education and training are needed either for a career switch or self-improvement. A lot of people are taking college courses (even with teenagers) or upgrading to an MBA to climb the corporate ladder. Even if college education is out for you, you still have to plan for your children’s college degree, unless you intend to leave them to their own devices.
The next thing you’ll want to do, if you are just starting out, is to organize your learning. For example, one week you might spend time learning AdWords, and the next week you can focus on article marketing tactics and strategies. Another week you can learn list building and how to set up an autoresponder and market to a list etc. Doing this is almost like following an organized ‘classroom schedule’ and it will make your learning much more progressive, so you are able to take action faster.
Many business formats require you to have home parties and spend hours on the phone every night. If you have a full-time job that requires evening work. this type of home business won’t work for you. Besides the basics of the business, you have to evaluate the amount of time you can dedicate each week. Finding a home business that compliments your regular schedule is extremely important. My tip: evaluate the hours that you can work a home business and make sure you pick a company that compliments that schedule.
This is going to be a “well duh” moment when you read this. Ready? The hot button is Hope! Hope is why people join business opportunities, why they seek them out, and why they’ll sit through your hour long presentation displaying your soaps, lotions, and super powerful vitamins. It’s all because of hope. What are they hoping for? It’s shouldn’t be too hard to figure out because it’s the same stuff you’re hoping for. They’re hoping for a better life. They’re hoping to stop the stress of where the money for the next bill is going to come from. Or worse yet (and more true these days), where the money for the big leaning pile of bills on the counter is going to come from.
Once you are ready to get things off the ground, your best asset will be your own self-discipline. When you work at home, distractions abound. A three hour lunch always sounds nice and errands can become very convenient distractions if you are not careful. You have to remember – even though you are your own supervisor – you still have to be diligent about your work. You will only hurt your own bottom line if you let things slide for too long.
