Your Home Business – Keep on Keeping On

Did you ever hear the saying ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going’? That really says a lot. Whereas when things get tough, the less determined will hang back and allow discouragement to overcome their efforts to stay motivated. So instead of trying harder or trying something different when they don’t see any results, they will just stop trying.

hang in there!

It’s very hard to come back from this place, but it can happen. It may take a different set of circumstances to become motivated again. It may be a different time – a week or month or even a year from now. It may take a big change in your life such as the loss of a job, or even a change of heart – maybe you just see things a little differently for some reason. If you are really serious about your home business someday, some way you will revisit the idea.

Another saying comes to mind with regard to thi

There was once a song that had lyrics that included something like “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you get what you need”. So you may have a vi

Your Online Home Business Plan – Can You Afford It? Or You Can’t Afford Not to?

Especially if money is an issue (and it usually is), we find that if we just put in a little more effort, we can do things ourselves and save a little money. For other things, you have to consider whether you have more money or more time – If you have more time, you can learn to do things yourself for free. If you have more money, then you might want to pay for a service to save you time.

you can't afford not to

To use a very broad, sweeping analogy, you might think that you can’t afford to advertise. The truth is you can’t afford not to advertise if you want a business. Having your home business online is for the most part much less expensive and easier than having an offline business. You can reach millions of people with a simple webpage and an email service. If you tried to reach half that many offline it would be very expensive and labor-intensive.

However on the

Do You Think You Can Start a Successful Online Home Business?

Look at this question this way: You have to think you can. There is so much you can glean from this little saying by Henry Ford: “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right”.

think you can

When you think you can do something then you will try to do it. Conversely, some people will not even try if they think they can’t do something. So they will never know if they could have succeeded. What a waste of potential!

What characteristic would you say is pretty universal in people who are successful? The answer is self-confidence. A person that has this gift will usually always see everything through that lense. They believe in themselves and their abilities and that if they put their mind to it then they can do it.

Sometimes though people will lose their confidence in themselves if they have had critical people in their

Online Home Business Entrepreneur – Bucking Up

One of the most detrimental ‘habits’ or ‘traits’ for anyone doing anything is a sense of entitlement. Nobody owes you anything other than what they have literally agreed to. It is particularly harmful to people who are learning to start their own business if they believe someone else is responsible for their success or failure.

Being new, being computer illiterate, etc, are not valid excuses where we are entitled to someone else doing our work (unless they have agreed specifically to do so or we are paying them). If we don’t know something then we need to learn it. ‘Information is power’ is certainly true, that is if we use the information to take action. If there is free training available certainly take advantage of it. If necessary pay for training through a community college (online) or some other online resource that is f
