The Truth about owning a Work-From-Home Business by by Erik Gassler
Many people like to think that
working from home and owning your own home based business means that you donít
have to work very hard or very much. You join this or that program and they set
up everything and its all automated and you in a couple of weeks or months
youíll be making thousands of dollars a month and be able to quit your job.
That sure would be nice, but I havenít seen a program yet that even comes close.
The fact of the matter is, if you want to have your own business working from
home, and you want to make more than just part-time income with it, then you
really need to follow what Iím about to say.
The first step I always like to recommend to people about starting a work from
home business is to forget about the business all together. Donít think about
what kind of business you want or what you want from it or anything like that.
Once youíve done that, go to your computer and pull up a text editor of some
kind, or grab a pen and paper, whatever suits you best. Next, write down your
life. What have you accomplished in your lifetime so far? What things have you
not done that you thought you would have done by now. What things would you like
to accomplish or do in the years that follow?
Look at your answers and write down goals for yourself. What would you like to
achieve and when would you like to achieve them by. What will it take to achieve
these goals? Are you in a position now that you will be able to achieve your
goals? If not, why not? I always like to see peoples answer to that question.
These answers and goals should be your motivation for whatever you decide to do.
I always recommend placing them somewhere where you will see them and be forced
to look at them every day.
So now you hopefully know what you want out of life, if not I hope you figure it
out soon. Getting what you want in life usually involves knowing what you want
first. If you get what you want before you even know you wanted it, consider
yourself lucky, and I hope you donít throw it away before you realize itís what
The next step is to now go back to thinking about your business. This can be the
hardest part. It took me years to figure this step out, even though I had seen
it many places, and thought I knew it, I really didnít. I only knew it existed,
but never knew how to believe it.
And belief is exactly what this next step is. Whether you come up with an idea
for your own business, or you find a MLM, franchise, or any other type of
business out their. You need to believe in it 100% before you invest too much
time into it. This means research the business as much as you can. If a program
doesnít give you enough information without you buying into it first, move onto
the next one. It probably isnít worth your time.
And once you believe in your business, that belief needs to be able to grow
until you love your business. If you want to be successful, you need to love
your business, love your products, and love what you do in your business.
Some things youíll want to look at is the business or company itself, and its
products. If youíre selling products, how good are the products, who makes them,
where are they made, what kind of guarantees do they come with, how do they
compare with similar products.
Whatever youíre suppose to be selling, make sure you do your research, and make
sure theyíre products or services you feel confident about. If you canít
recommend a product to someone you love because you donít believe in it, chances
are you arenít going to do very good with those products.
I also always recommend looking at the support structure for companies,
especially MLM companies. Whoís going to be there to help you starting and
running your business? Are there people you can call or email to talk to and ask
questions, and how successful are they in this venture? Are they living their
dream or just doing this part time as they work 9 to 5 down the street at Joe
Bobís? Just because youíre going to be in business for yourself, doesnít mean
you have to be by yourself.
And one thing that can sometimes be really great, is being able to call or email
someone who is in this business, and only this business, and having great
success. These are the people you want to learn from. Copying success will lead
you their a lot faster than just copying good ideas.
Ok, so youíve found a solid business that you really like. Itís got great
websites, a great program, great products, and a solid support team to help you
the whole way. So whatís next?
Next is to set up a business plan. This is the step that can scare a lot of
people. A lot of times because people donít know how to start a business plan or
even what one is exactly. Well it doesnít have to be that hard.
I used Business Plan Pro for mine, but I realize most people may not be able to
afford the software. Thatís ok, you can still make your own, but I do recommend
getting some sort of business plan software if you can.
Now you can get as detailed and exact as you want with these, and get ready to
use your imagination. I had a lot of exact figures to use with my business plan,
but I still could only estimate what my sales would be. And Iím sorry if I get
complicated at all, Iím going to try to keep it as simple as possible.
The first thing you should set up is your goals for your business. Make a list
of everything you want to achieve with your new venture. I think the most
important one being how much do you want to make each month. How much do you
need to make every month to truly live the way you want to live? Donít worry
about this being too high, this is usually a long term goal.
Then looking at this monthly goal youíve set, look at your business and figure
out what it would take to reach that goal. What would you have to do each month
to reach that goal? Again, donít be shocked, this should still be long term. And
donít be afraid to spend some time playing with different ideas in this part of
your business planning.
I do want to bring up something real quick, as it can relate to this part of
your goal setting. Iím in Multi Level Marketing, and Iíve tried many different
types of MLM and companies. Over the years there is something Iíve learned. If
youíre looking for a high income quickly, MLM companies are ok, but I suggest
ignoring the MLM side of the company. Reason being is that multi level marketing
at its roots is a slow income producer. You can make a lot of money, but it will
almost always take a long time to build up to even a decent income. Unless of
course you have hundreds of thousands of leads you can send your new program too
(Do Not SPAM), and even then nothings guaranteed.
I recommend focusing your time and goal setting to the retail end of your
business. Donít ignore the MLM side, but donít spend too much time on it.
Once you have figured out what you need to do each month to reach your goal,
start working on how you can get there. Look at what you have now, what you need
then, and whatís missing in between. Start planning and thinking of ideas on how
you can get the missing pieces you need to achieve your goals.
Iím not spending too much more time on this step, but this is a step I highly
recommend you spend a lot of time, and put some serious thought into. And in
case you didnít notice, this step basically involves working backwards to find
out how to reach your goals. Iíve found that many problems can be solved if you
look at the goal first, and work backwards to find the solution.
The basic goal you want to get out of your business plan is exactly what a
business plan should be designed for. How are you going to run your business?
What are your immediate and long term goals for your business? How are you
realistically going to achieve these goals? What will you have to do to achieve
them? What are you willing to do to achieve them? Your business plan should tell
you exactly how you are going to run your business, what you will do daily,
weekly, monthly, etc. and how you need to coordinate your time to finish your
tasks. You should be able to look at your business plan every day, and know
exactly what you need to do that day.
This step is also an important step to make sure you have chosen the right
business. This is where many people might realize they canít realistically
achieve their wants and goals or even needs in the business theyíve chosen, or
at least by when they want or need them. This is also why I recommend not
investing to much into a business until youíve completed this step, looked over
and analyzed the business youíve chosen.
After youíve completed your business plan, and everything looks good, itís now
time to get to work. Whether youíre going to be doing your business full time or
part time, you should stick to your business plan. Go over your tasks daily or
weekly and make sure youíre following everything the way it needs to be done.
You need to stick to it. Remember, youíre in a business that you love. You have
a great product that everyone needs or can benefit from or whatever it is for
your product. Your excited about your business, and you donít have a problem
telling everyone you meet about it, especially if a related topic comes up in
This may seem like its too complicated or too much work, but thatís what
business is. Any successful business takes work to get there. Iím not saying you
have to punch in 40 plus hours into your business to make it successful or to
get what you want out of it. But I do know that the more youíre willing to put
in to what you do in life, the more you will get out of it.
