3. Donít believe everything you read.

I loverepparttar line fromrepparttar 117835 Billy Crystal movie I just saw called 61*. Micky Mantel says ďWell, they said so on TV so it must be true.Ē There are some unscrupulous marketers out there, promising all kinds of impossible dreams, schemes, and riches. Use your common sense. No one can make a million dollars doing nothing, you canít eat, shop and advertise and get paid enough to do it to make a living. You must sell something, either your knowledge, services, or products. And you might be able to eventually start receiving residuals for doing nothing, but my guess is that you started doing SOMETHING first.

4. Never talk bad about your competitors.

Instead, talk up your business. You can point out what you have, do or guarantee that your competitors donít without naming names. Pointing fingers will only make you look unprofessional and trivial. Benefits sell, not negative comments and bashing others.

5. Donít give up.

Now this doesnít mean that you should forgo paying for your mortgage so that you can buy advertising. If you think that because you have placed your 10 ads, you have put up a website and you have made your banner and still didnít become rich, you should quit, your mistaken. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. You might need to continue working at your J.O.B. until you start bringing in enough with your own business to reach your inner income goals. Thatís ok, youíre working towards your goals and thatís positive. Regardless of whatrepparttar 117836 hype says, you canít become wealthy overnight and by doing nothing.

I hope my opinions have atrepparttar 117837 very least, given you something to think about.

4. Decide when your hours will be. Now I know that having a home business means that you have flexible hours but Iím talking about a quitting time. Decide what it will be and stick with it. You will be happier, your family will be happier and you wonít have to hear ďAre you still onrepparttar computer?Ē Most professional people will understand if you donít reply to them at 8:00 at night. Oh, and donít check your e-mail before you go to bed!! Itís never as simple as that.

5. Believe in yourself. How long have you wanted to work at home? How long have you dreamed of owning your own business? You trust yourself, right? Apply yourself, learn, listen to your heart. Put forthrepparttar 117834 effort and commitment it takes to succeed. Avoidrepparttar 117835 ďwhat ifĒís, regrets and disappointments that come with passing up on your dreams and goals. Go for it!!
