The 5 Promises that will help you succeed in your Home Business

Written by Conray Knox

Make sure you eat well. Cut out fast food and fried foods. Do not skimp out on sleep. Yes, you will be putting in some late hours but you also need to be alert when making important business decisions.

Promise #4 -- "You will surround yourself around successful people"

This promise is self explainable. If your business is going to be successful you will need surround yourself with other people who have successful home businesses.

I like to call it a mastermind group. A group of successful home business entrepreneurs brainstorming new ideas...

Or talking about how a particular marketing campaign went. This is great. For example, maybe you were thinking about launching a campaign and presented it to your group. They could give you feedback and ideas to help your launch be more successful and cost effective.

Promise #5 -- "You Build your business Relentlessly!"

That's right be relentless in building your business. Why? No one else is going to it for you...

And you will set yourself free. Yes free! Nothing can hold you back once you set yourself free. Free to get up leave when you are ready, free to travel, free to do everything your little heart desires!


These promise are made not to be broken. Many people set goals or make promises but never quite live up to them. They convince themselves that it's ok. Next time I will do better.

Well guess what you just broke promise #1, "You will maintain balance in your life". It all starts withrepparttar first promise. Without that one,repparttar 117136 rest will not work.

I started out without promise #1 because I felt that had some stability in my life. Well I didn't and I felled flat on my face. I spent over a $1500 on courses that I still have not profited from.

Do you see where I am going?

I challenge you to print this out or write down these promises and post them somewhere so you will see them everyday. If you don't like these write out your own... and guard your promises like you would a childhood secret!

Third, learn as much as you can about small business. There is a wealth of information available on this topic andrepparttar US Small Business Administration is probably as good a place to start as any. Just go to and navigate torepparttar 117135 sections dealing with home based businesses.

Fourth, write a business plan. It is your roadmap to reaching your objectives. There are numerous articles onrepparttar 117136 Internet and in libraries that can assist you in developing your business plan as well as addressingrepparttar 117137 many other issues involved with starting and operating a business from home. As a starting point, here are a couple of Small Business Administration website locations that should prove useful:

And last, but not least, seekrepparttar 117138 advice of a tax professional. Your first reaction may be that you can't afford such expenses right now; but, in reality, you canít afford not to seek such advice fromrepparttar 117139 very beginning of your home business start-up. They can advise you about ways you may be able to reducerepparttar 117140 amount of taxable business income atrepparttar 117141 end ofrepparttar 117142 year. Paying for an hour or two of consultation with a tax professional atrepparttar 117143 beginning will probably save you much more than that amount later on downrepparttar 117144 road.

I never cease to be amazed atrepparttar 117145 number of people that seem to think that some magic is somehow created when you putrepparttar 117146 words "home based" in front ofrepparttar 117147 word "business". It's still just happens to be based inrepparttar 117148 home.
