Bonus self help home business resource article:
The Home Business Challenge.
By Bryan Thorby
Copyright © 2004
Establishing a successful Home Based business is a
big and rewarding challenge.
What are the main challenges?
-Attitude and Motivation
-Commitment and Persistence
You may have other challenges but I’ll work with those
Determine what you need to do. Having a daily or weekly
plan is very useful. Some even have quarterly plans.
Plan your work and work your plan.
Of course it nearly goes without saying that you have an
overall plan or vision and an annual plan – right!
Operating your home based business can become all
consuming so be sure to set time aside for yourself, family
and friends. It takes a bit of discipline to allow yourself
the luxury of some free time but it is essential that you
do look after yourself.
Beware of time wasters. I know just how easy it is to loose
a few hours of valuable time by being distracted with
something new or even a whim.
The old saying still holds true – you need to spend some
money to make money.
Organise a budget that you can work with.
You will need money for internet connection and website
hosting at the very least. Then comes money for software,
ebooks, training, business opportunities, business building
resources such as targeted leads, and advertising and
There is a vast quantity of free resources available but
remember the old adage – you get what you pay for.
Sometimes the free stuff isn’t up to standard so you will
need to invest in your business and in yourself by buying
better quality business and educational resources. YOU are
the most valuable resource your business has.
Start off with free stuff and upgrade as you learn more
and feel more confident in what you are doing.
Take time to determine the resources you need.
– What home business training would help?
- Which resources (ebooks, books, software, teleclasses,
ezines/newsletters, autoresponder courses, and
coaches/mentors) are you going to need?
Seek out good quality home business training. I provide
and am developing some excellent training options and
courses on my website.
Subscribe to a few ezines that focus on your area of
interest. Most ezine publishers are interested in
providing their subscribers with interesting and
informative articles, resources, marketing options and
Figure out what is most important for you.
Avoid the temptation to jump from one new thing to
another. You’ll waste your time, money, and energy.
- What knowledge do you need ?
They say that knowledge is power. Well actually it is only
potential power. The power comes from ACTION.
Read articles in ezines, search the net, find websites that
can provide you with helpful resources.
Acquiring knowledge takes time. When you are ready to learn
something new just go for it.
When I first started in Internet marketing way back in 2001
I knew absolutely nothing about what was involved. Had I
known I may not have started.
The journey thus far has been fascinating. I’ve learnt a
lot and continue to learn daily.
I believe that this Internet marketing and Home Business
is a process that we each need to work through at our own
Also, what works for one person may not necessarily work
for you. So don’t get too caught up in what a particular
”guru” has to say.
And remember that things change so quickly on the Internet
that we need to be constantly aware of what is happening.
ATTITUDE AND MOTIVATION
You need to possess or develop a good, strong, positive
ATTITUDE and a high level of personal MOTIVATION.
The right attitude and motivation are as important as your
Home Business plan.
A negative attitude will be your biggest threat to business
You need to be prepared to put in the “hard” yards to
develop your own home business. In the early stages there
may be very little financial return in terms of money and
Have a vision for what you are working towards.
Use affirmations, post motivational messages in your work
space and even look upon your business as
”Your Million Dollar Business”.
“Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely
believe, and enthusiastically act upon…..
must inevitably come to pass!”
Paul J Meyer
You know what you want to achieve so don’t allow the
negativity of others get in the way. They haven’t got
your vision, passion and desire.
COMMITMENT AND PERSISTENCE
Make a firm commitment to yourself to never, ever quit.
Quitting is the biggest reason people fail in Home
Business and online.
Understand that only relentless focused action has the
power to turn dreams into reality.
Success will not happen overnight, but with commitment
and persistence it will happen.
If at first you don’t succeed, perservere, be proactive,
analyse what has worked and what hasn’t. Believe in
yourself and in your ability to be successful.
