Income From Home – 4 Steps That Turn Your Dream Of A Home Business Into Reality

Millions of people dream about starting their own home based business. Are you one of those millions? It’s great if you are, but please don’t be like many of the dreamers who either chase after every new “opportunity” and never really succeed, or dream and dream, but never start. Or, they do start some kind of home business and then give up too soon because success doesn’t come as fast as they expected so they lose hope, or don’t know what to do next.

If you dream of having your own home business, you can finally discover a legitimate home business that has the best chance of being successful. And then, you can start your own home based business now. Why wait any longer?

Imagine being able to discover the PERFECT home based business. Imagine being able to focus only on that business so you can stop wasting your time and money trying out every new “opportunity” that sounds good. Imagine starting your own PERFECT home based business and becoming successful in it.

There are four steps to turning your dream into reality:

1. Check out each home business “opportunity” to see if it meets the 7 key requirements a home business must have in order to qualify as the PERFECT Home Based Business. It is important for you to be convinced that the business you choose is the right one. Each letter in the word P.E.R.F.E.C.T. stands for one of the 7 key requirements.

Is it Profitable?

Is it Easy?

Is it Real?

Does it Fit with your desired lifestyle?

Is it E-Friendly (uses the internet and e-mail for marketing)?

Is it Competitve?

Is it Testable at low risk?

2. When you find out which business fits the requirements better than any other business, you must have the personal strength and commitment to focus only on that business. Stop trying out something else every week that sounds good. Stick with the P.E.R.F.E.C.T. home business you discovered in step one and work at it until you make it a success. Yes, it will take some work. Expect it. And it will almost certainly take longer than you think. So what? Wouldn’t it be worth it to finally make your home business dream a reality?

3. Learn everything you can about the business you choose. Learn how successful businesses (like your perfect home business) are started and how they make money. What will you need to do, what skills will you need, and what will you need to learn in order to succeed? Who has already succeeded and is willing to teach you the ropes so you don’t waste time and money learning the hard way?

4. Take directed action until you succeed and don’t give up.

Follow the seven action steps that will lead you to success in the P.E.R.F.E.C.T. home based business. Here are the 7 action steps:

Passion: Find a business you can be passionate about that matches your core desires and leverages your strengths.

Economics: If there is no profitable market for the products or services you intend to form your business around, it won’t do much good for you to be passionate about them. Find a profitable market before you create any products.

Research: Learn everything you can about your intended prospects and your market, about products or services already being bought in your market, and about your competitors. But, don’t get paralyzed by analysis. Learn what you can quickly and move on to the next step.

Find your business model: For most businesses and markets, there are at least several different business models you could follow and be successful. Choose the one related to your perfect home business that sounds best to you, the one that makes best use of your strengths, and the one that sounds like the most fun.

Establish your product line: Create or find products to offer to your prospects. Think about creating a long term business and not just a short term income stream. So, don’t just create or find one product, plan for at least several related products in your product line. You should have products at various price points so prospects can buy your less expensive product first. As they develop trust in you and your products they will buy your more expensive products also.

Complete your marketing machine: Your marketing machine will almost certainly be more than just a website. Whatever is required for effective marketing in your perfect home business, make sure you have it set up and tested to make sure it is working properly. At a minimum, you need a way to reach your intended prospects, you need an offer to present your products or services to them, a way to take payment, and a way to follow up with your prospects and customers to build your relationship with them and continue offering them value and products.

Traffic and Conversion: Getting prospects to view and read your offer is Traffic. Without traffic, you can’t get any orders. But, getting prospects to take the action you desire on your offer page is Conversion. That action could be getting them to opt in to your e-mail list or getting them to place an order for one of your products for example. If you have millions of people viewing your offer, but nobody takes your desired action, you won’t get any orders either. Once you have your marketing machine set up, getting both Traffic and Conversion is critical.

Here are the 4 steps again to turn your dream of a home business into reality.

1. Determine which business best fits the 7 key requirements for a P.E.R.F.E.C.T. home based business.

2. Focus on just that business until you are successful with it, and ignore other enticing possibilities when they come along.

3. Quickly learn everything you can about the business you choose.

4. Take action, following the 7 action steps for a P.E.R.F.E.C.T. home business. Don’t give up.

Starting a Business From Home: How to Start a Home Business and Keep It Positive and Prosperous!

Starting a business from home is easy when you learn to use the secret that successful business people have mastered throughout the years. Using the Law of Attraction in your home business catapults your success in many ways.

SUCCESSFUL VISUALIZATION: When starting a business from home, one of the first things necessary is to have a vision of what you want for your life and how you want your business to run. Having this inner vision ensures that you not only stay on track with your new endeavor, but also invokes one of the greatest laws of the Universe, the Law of Attraction. This enables you to attract everything you need on how to start a home business.

While many people discuss the Law of Attraction, there are two critical factors you must use when visualizing your home business success:

  1. First, in order to manifest anything, you have to come from a place of true desire for your life in general. When you can visually see and emotionally feel how you want your life to be overall, then your business choices will fall into place naturally.
  2. Secondly, the true way to use the Law of Attraction is by feeling that you have already attained your business success before you start. When you feel your success on an emotional level and believe your success is possible, you have mastered starting a business that will succeed.

VISION BOARD: One of the main benefits of starting a business at home is that you have full control over your working time and space. So, putting up a vision board and using daily visualization exercises that allow you to access your emotional feelings of having a successful business is easy and gives you a visual boost every day. If you can’t find pictures, draw or sketch out your internal images. This fun act has already begun the manifestation process simply because now your dreams are on paper.

LAW OF ATTRACTION BUSINESS: Another thing to consider when starting a business from home and using the Law of Attraction is to start a Law of Attraction Business. Just like a painter becomes well versed with painting techniques, so you will become well versed with how to successfully use the Law of Attraction. Successful business people, whether they are starting a business at home or in the corporate world, know how important it is to choose a profitable business model and a Law of Attraction Business can be highly profitable.

LEVERAGING TODAY’S TECHNOLOGIES: When you are asking how to start a business from home and want to work part-time and still maintain high profitability, it is of high value to consider leveraging technologies such as automated online marketing systems that do the bulk of the administrative work for you. Many times, when people think about starting a business from home, they consider doing home parties and keeping an inventory of product available – usually in their garage or spare bedroom. When you harness the power of the Internet for your home business and sell a product that is deliverable over the Internet, you have captured one of the hottest trends in business today.

If you couple the Internet technology with the personal development industry by selling self-help, positive thinking or other personal development products, you will have stumbled upon an industry that is experiencing phenomenal growth, yet be able to keep your life in balance and work part-time.

HOW TO START A HOME BUSINESS CHECKLIST:

  1. HAVE A VISION: First, get clear on what you want for your life in general. In other words, what are your life priorities? Then, shop around for a high profit business that resonates with your internal values rather than just doing a business “for the money.” If your heart isn’t in the business, any financial gain won’t be as satisfying as that profit gained from a business where you have a vision and a purpose.
  2. HAVE REALISTIC GOALS: While many home business opportunities rely on the “get rich quick” theme, your best way to succeed is to take it slow and allow yourself time to go through the learning curve that goes with that business, especially if the company has provided an internet marketing system that leverages technology for you.
  3. CHOOSE A HIGH PROFIT HOME BUSINESS: If you are going to spend your time going through the learning curve, make sure the business opportunity is one that pays high dollar amounts per sale versus pennies per person enrolled.
  4. BE PERSISTENT: The only way you fail is if you give up. So keep going!

Starting a business from home is an exciting and challenging time. Visualize your ideal life, use your inner wisdom to find the right opportunity, leverage technology to ease your workload, and be persistent to stay the course.

They Called Me a Maniac When I Started a Home Business

Let me tell you what the public perception of a home based business can be. A home business to the narrow-minded masses tends to be something like this…

Aunt Edna is still working from home. She is selling those vitamins. I wish she would stop harassing me. Everyone knows she makes like $50 a month tops. If she didn’t have so many nephews that loved her cakes, cookies, and Christmas presents she wouldn’t make that much. I just don’t want to disappoint her. Home business is stupid. No one makes any money. Home businesses are for dreamers and retired people with too much time on their hands.

That used to be my perception of the home business movement. But motivation comes from strange places my friend, and my place was that of utter desperation. I was going no where in record time and decided to take the plunge.

In 1995 I started my own home business with $157 and in 2005 it did 2.4 million dollars in sales. Not bad for a “home business” hey?

I guess the question you have to answer is this… If you don’t start a home business then what are you going to do? The idea of working from home is time freedom and financial freedom. It is an investment in yourself and your family. Home is a beautiful place to be, and working from home is a blessing far greater than most any blessing I’ve known.

I don’t care what kind of home business you dream of. But you must be motivated to do something. In my case I became an amateur motivational writer and speaker and most of my money came from the dirtiest 3 letter word on the planet… MLM. Ugh. Oh the gnashing of teeth! You don’t have to hide, I am out of network marketing and MLM for now and possibly forever. I made a ton of money but I am all about pursuing my passions now instead of dollar signs. My passion is to help inspire people, and potentially guide them in the direction of their own home business. Why wouldn’t I want that? It changed my life.

If you aren’t a high profile attorney, prolific brain surgeon, or Fortune 500 Exec then maybe looking at working from home is something you should consider. Your own business is one of the few ways that you can make the same kind of money as Doctors, Lawyers, and Wall Street Guys.

When I started my business, my Mom and Dad told me to get a real job. Especially Dad who always told me things like, “You’d be better off looking for a good factory job and forgetting about this business nonsense.” God rest his soul, he was so proud of me when I finally made it. My home business grew into a storefront and he’d visit my office at least 3 times a week just to shoot the breeze with his kid.

The perception is that people don’t succeed with small home business startups. Work from home businesses tend to fail. That is what people think.

I am living proof that they don’t always fail. The key to succeeding is simply belief, determination, and using the nay-sayers as extra motivation. Ev ery time they would rain on my parade it would just make my inner fire burn hotter. You have to get to that point to succeed. Turn your passion into a brand new life and look at working from home today. You can start part time like most of us do, keep your day job, and just build slowly. It took me almost ten years to hit 7 figures in sales but I did it. Of course when I started I was on government assistance. I’ll tell you that story some other day.

Home based business is for real. Sure there are scams and heartbreaks along the way. But when you make it, and you will, I will be the first person to want to shake your hand and say, “I’m proud of you. You showed resolve and you did it.” That day is your destiny if you want it bad enough. Go for it.

How To Start A Home Business: 7 Essential Tips For Success

Are you currently involved in a home business or just starting? Either way, you want and desire to be your own boss, get away from the JOB, if you even have one in this economy, and you are looking for the financial freedom and time freedom that goes with owning your own home business: i.e. setting your hours, your schedule, and being more in control of your financial circumstances and lifestyle. Here are seven essential tips to seriously consider, if you haven’t already, in starting your home business. And if you’ve already started a home business and it isn’t getting the results you anticipated, then check these tips out. Hopefully, it will put you on the right path to move forward and achieve success.

The seven essential steps are:

1. Consider Your Skill: First and foremost, are you cut-out to be a business owner? Do you have what it takes, meaning the skill, the desire, and the fortitude and motivation to work your business, carving out the necessary time, putting in the maximum effort, and learning how to build a successful home business? Realize that not everyone is meant to be in business, a CEO. Talk to a few successful business owners and perhaps mentor with them, if you decide to move forward. But first, be prepared. Know what you are getting into realizing that you will have to develop skills. This means investing in you, your most important resource.

2. Consider Your Space and Focus: Do you have adequate space to focus on a home business? Building a business from home, whether the first, second or even third time will be, at best, challenging if you do not have the space to operate and conduct business. Do you have a separate home office area, a separate room where you can unequivocally focus on the daily operation of business away from the distraction and disruption of daily home life? Make sure you do; make a schedule, share it with your significant other and your family, and stick to your schedule at all cost. This is essential for focusing on your business and achieving your goals.

3. Decide on the Product or Service: Is it viable in the marketplace? Do people have a need, want and desire for it? Just as importantly, if not more so, is it your niche? You have to be able to wrap your mindset and your passion around your product and service and want to help other like-minded people with the solution it offers. If it is not viable, not desired, and you don’t have the belief or passion for it, then find another product/service. Too many individuals in home business are promoting opportunities with a product/service that they do not believe in themselves. This goes against the laws of nature.

4. Consider Your Investment: Yes, you will have to invest in your home business, make no mistake about this. Most of your investment should go into your skill-set, such as learning how to operate your business, how to market it properly today, and how to create ROI (return on investment). You can invest minimally given the company and its product/service knowing that it is credible and you can get behind it. Put the better part of your investment in your education. Learn some basic skills and then expound upon them given your profits. Too many people put the cart before the horse and spend way more money on enrolling with a company, getting in product, purchasing business cards and leads BEFORE they even know who their potential customers are and how to market properly.

5. Proper Equipment Needed: It’s not business cards, product brochures/dvds, leads, and gas for your car that you need to start your home business. You need two powerful tools that are right at your fingertips: your computer with access to the Internet and your phone. Absolutely! Handing out brochures and dvds will do very little for your business if these materials are getting in the wrong hands. Travelling about town to appointments will be a waste of both time and money if your prospects have not asked you for information about your product/service. Just imagine getting in the path of prospects who are already searching for your solution, your offer albeit your product or service! That’s what you need to learn.

6. Business Goals: Having defined measurable goals for your home business is critical to your success. You do not want to “fly by the seat of your pants”. You want to have clearly defined goals for the first 2 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, and 5 years. These goals need to be written out, kept visible, reviewed daily, and evaluated regularly. Goals can be adjusted as steps are reached or not; however, keep your focus on your vision…your plan; let nothing deter you from moving forwards to achieve success.

7. Have a Plan of Action: You need a plan, a proven system to put in place 24/7. Waking up every day knowing exactly what you are going to do to present and close business is crucial to getting results and profitability. Who are you going to present business to? It is not anyone and everyone for sure. You want to market to the right prospects and, once identified, get in their path. Realize that the majority of people who need, want, and desire your solution are searching for it on the internet. So getting prospects to reach out to you and taking some action on your own professional business website is the way to go. Then have professional scripts so that you can pick up your phone and present your offer and close business.

These seven tips are essential to not only consider, but to implement in order to start a home business. Then continue to expound on your marketing skills to generate more leads, close more business, realize profit and achieve success.
