Need help getting your Home Based Business on track? Are you feeling that you got lost along way, and canít find your way back? Iíve been there. Here are 10 Steps to Success in starting or restarting your Home Based Business.
1.What is your WHY for doing this business? Write it down, speak it out loud to yourself, and remind yourself of it EVERYDAY.
2.What are your goals and dreams, personal and financial, and how soon do you want to achieve them? Write them down, first personal, then financial. Put them up on your refrigerator, or somewhere you will see them everyday. Adjust them as needed along way to success.
3.Create a 90 day chart for your 90 DAY PLAN of action, with your forms of advertisement, whether talking to people, putting out flyers, ads, etc. How many people do you plan to talk to a day, how many flyers, ads, etc. per day; write it down for each day on your 90 DAY PLAN. Also, write down your financial goal for these 90 days.
4.In a daily planner, plan your day in 15 minute increments for each day, including your advertising in days as plotted on your 90 DAY PLAN. Do not deviate from your plan unless in an emergency situation. You are YOUR OWN BOSS, so treat yourself as your own employee. DO THE JOB AS YOU WOULD FOR SOMEONE ELSE, only better.
5.Each day on your 90 DAY PLAN chart, jot down your progress (how many people you actually talked to, 10/day suggested, ads & flyers put out, etc), and how many people responded, how many were contacted, how many& how much sales per each form of advertisement.
6.At end of your 90 DAY PLAN, divide how many sales were made by number of each form of advertising done. Now, did you meet your quota set for your advertising and financial goals? If not, begin a new 90 DAY PLAN of action, increasing each form of advertising . EXAMPLE: Goal $1000.00 profit, for 100 flyers put out, $50.00received; need to increase number of flyers to 2000 to reach goal of $1000.00.($1000 ł $50.00 = 20X100=2000)
