Sheep Spend and Lose, Leaders Make Money

Written by Sopan Greene

Why would you expect anything less from a home based business? It's home based, but it's still a business. It's no less legitimate than a non-home-based business, repparttar only difference is that you get a lot more money and freedom...once it's built. You have to build it. It doesn't build itself for you. And you have to do research onrepparttar 117549 business to make sure it's not a scam before you put down your cash or give up your credit card number.

Can you make money while you sleep? Definitely. Do you have to put in work and build a foundation, a reputation and...a business first? Definitely. Can you buy into some new program, advertise it for a week or two to see how it does and make a lot of money? Definitely not. Tire kickers don't make money with any business.

So what should you do? I invite you to look inside yourself, maybe look at what turned you on as a child and make money with something related to that. What did repparttar 117550 acorn inside you do with allrepparttar 117551 free time you had as a child? Did you write, race, build, help others? Do what works for your soul.

I understandrepparttar 117552 pull to want to make money easily. I was pulled into that trap many times before I figured out that I had to do what felt more like play to me than work. Then I had to make a commitment to succeed and do everything possible to make it happen.

When you see a herd of sheep racing towardrepparttar 117553 "next big thing" exercise caution, slowly head inrepparttar 117554 other direction and don't try it out until you've given it a year to prove that it'll still be around. Otherwise your time, effort and money will have ran out to pasture with allrepparttar 117555 other sheep.

Instead, study leaders inrepparttar 117556 field you're interested in, copy what works for them (using your own unique style), and build a foundation that will get you torepparttar 117557 bank with repparttar 117558 most money. As our friendrepparttar 117559 tortoise showed us in his race againstrepparttar 117560 hare, slow and steady winsrepparttar 117561 race every time.
