put fourth little effort by using stock photos and ad copy fromrepparttar B&F website, and therefore received little or no sales from their auctions.

Many ofrepparttar entries in my so-called diary had to do withrepparttar 117139 proverbial "two steps forward and one step backward" thing andrepparttar 117140 ever-looming temptation to become discouraged. Although I didn't appreciate it atrepparttar 117141 time, it is now obvious that as long as you have more steps forward than backward you will eventually get ahead! Isn't hindsight wonderful?

Other entries reflectrepparttar 117142 fact that relatively minor events can seem huge inrepparttar 117143 early stages of developing a work at home business and can really contribute to an emotional roller coaster ride. For example, if you are just starting out and you have two customers/clients and you lose one...that's a 50% drop! However, if you fast-forward in time torepparttar 117144 point where you have hundreds of customers/clients and you lose one...that's just a mere fraction of 1%! Same event, just at a different point in time.

Looking back on it now, some ofrepparttar 117145 stuff I recorded now seems humorous, but I'm pretty sure that was notrepparttar 117146 case atrepparttar 117147 time I maderepparttar 117148 notations.
