What a question! What's THAT supposed to mean?

I askrepparttar question because so many people today who profess to be interested in operating their own business spend far too much time "tire-kicking."

While I would never underestimaterepparttar 117359 importance of exercising due diligence when investigating any type of business or income opportunity, there comes a time when you simply have to make a decision and act upon it.

Let's face one business is right for everyone. We all have different interests, different abilities, different financial goals. But one thing's for'll never get offrepparttar 117360 ground if you sit on your hands!

Take my own experience, for instance. I started with an idea, a concept. I wanted to help others learn that with a little knowledge and a lot of sweat equity, anyone withrepparttar 117361 desire can earn an income from home.

This is notrepparttar 117362 first business I've operated from home; far from it. My first foray intorepparttar 117363 home-business scene was with a direct sales company called Discovery Toys. At that time it was in its infancy (as a matter of fact, I wasrepparttar 117364 very first representative in my home state of Mississippi). For those of you not familiar with Discovery Toys, it markets educational toys and games through a variety of sales methods. It also provides an opportunity for residual income by building your own sales force. I chose to only do sales, and I did very well with it. Why? Not because I sat around wondering IF it would work; I just did it!

The SECRET is - discover your own truths -repparttar 117358 ones that will help grow your business. Use your imagination; it's amazing whatrepparttar 117359 mind can conjure up if we slow down and listen to our natural intuition.

Having been in various businesses overrepparttar 117360 years, I have learned that opportunities exist everywhere! For example, just recently my daughter signed a lease on an apartment in her college town, only to discover two weeks before she was to move in that major repairs needed to be made. When we askedrepparttar 117361 landlord about it, he refused to do them - and also refused to let her out ofrepparttar 117362 lease.

Naturally, that prompted good ol' mom to undertake a serious investigation ofrepparttar 117363 options my daughter had to get out from under this lease so that she could find a more suitable place to live.

And guess what I discovered?

That this landlord had violated a federal statute when he failed to provide her with something he is required by law to give her when renting this particular type of rental unit.
