Are YOU Right For A Home-Based Business?Written by Ken Leonard Jr.

business. You will also be able to keep that great attitude going strong. Do what you have to do, to get what you want most. Let "the big picture" motivate YOU to success. 5) Have Control Of Your Life And Business There is no way you are going to build a successful home-based business if your life is a mess. A business that is not run in a controlled manner is also doomed to failure. You must be in control of everything you do. That means dealing with family or personal problems in an effective way. Focus will grow your business, but lack of control will destroy your focus. Filter business advice received from others with your own good sense. Take control of your website, and your customers. Never give control of your life or business to anyone. 6) Willing To Learn Do you enjoy learning something new? Your business success will depend on your ability to be in a "constant learning" mode. The top marketers on 'net admit that they spend a good chunk of cash each year on courses, eBooks and seminars. This assures that they will be up on all of new, innovative techniques used to market online. If an eBook can give you one, great, original idea, your investment of $50 could turn into thousands. Be willing to take what you've learned and apply and test it in your situation. Some ideas will work well. Some won't. It's all part of never-ending learning and testing process. 7) You Can Make It Happen Do you know what separates successful people from those who are not? They are willing to do what others won't. These people have a "make it happen" attitude. This puts them in a position to take risks, and be reasonably sure that they will reach their goals. Entrepreneurs like this don't make excuses. They hold themselves personally accountable for success of their business. In Closing... If you don't have all of these qualities, don't worry. You can develop these inside YOU over time, and your home-based business will have greatest chance for success. Don't think that these points are too basic or trite. That would be a grave mistake. Those who take these ideas lightly will find that they can't succeed at any kind of small business. Those people would be more suited for working at someone else's business. Working from home is not for everyone. Is it right for you?
