Home Business 102: Taking Responsibility vs. Entitlement

As an analogy, let’s look at a pencil. A pencil is a tool that we can use for many things that primarily involve writing. However a pencil will just sit there and do nothing unless we pick it up and start writing. Otherwise, it is useless. Only when we use it to take action is it fulfilling it’s highest purpose and benefiting us in the process.

use your resources

Conversely, if we don’t use it, is it the pencil that is bad? Can we blame the pencil for our failure to take action? (nope) The same principle applies when we are talking about your home business, there are plenty of resources available to us to use online, much of the time freely. Of course they do nothing for us unless we use them. We are responsible to make use of the tools we need to succeed.

Now when it comes to an affiliate program or your sponsor in that program, they have their functions. They

Internet Business Opportunities

Start-Up Business – If At First You Don’t Succeed…

The saying goes something like ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again’. When you are starting a new business you have to keep this in mind if you are determined to make it work. If you have a ‘half-hearted’ attitude it won’t carry you through the hard times. You have to be totally engaged in your idea to get even to first base, let alone to make a home run.

Many times when we get an idea or have a dream, we are not realistic in our efforts to see it through. Many people who are attracted to the idea of starting a business from home online really do not apply themselves. They have an attitude as if they are in a magic shop and going to put a nickel in one of those machines that supposedly tells your fortune. ‘Let me see if this will work’ they muse. Does money tumble out of the slot? More than likely not, an

Internet Marketing – Be the Coach-Friend-Support You Wish You Had

First we need to realize that we are ultimately the one who is responsible if we ‘make it or break it’. Either way we could use some help along the way and will definitely have an opportunity to ‘give something back’ if we stick with it long enough to actually develop a successful business online.

In the Home Business/Internet marketing industry we are blessed with the theory that ‘you must give to receive’. People know that, and as they say, ‘we succeed only if you succeed’. It’s just a matter of professional courtesy to be helpful, supportive and affirming, because ‘what goes around comes around’. This is very different from the ‘dog-eat-dog’ competition tactics people may think of as doing ‘business’.

That’s why Network marketing and Internet marketing go hand-in-hand. It’s about knowing and being known and trusted; …and one way to get known is to share infor

Trust – Developing a New Business Online

If you think about it, trust is really key to most everything we do. They say the more we trust, the more ability we have to navigate the environment to reach our goals. It is like a give and take situation where the more you give the more you get in return.

Some examples of possible behavior in this regard would be the difference between suspicion and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. The former puts up barriers and defenses which may impede progress and actually become limitations, more than protecting us from what we suspect. It may well result in termination. The latter allows things to flow and develop as they will. If all goes well, there will be a successful transaction or exchange as a result.

With that said, nobody should just trust blindly in most cases. We need to create trust by for example doing research and having direct experience; and finding favorable results, we then start to trust that we are going in the right direction and therefore begin t
