The 5 Promises that Will Help You Succeed in your Home Business! Conray J Knox (c) Copyright 2003 by Conray J Knox

This may come as a surprise... but there are 5 promises that will help you become a more successful home business entrepreneur.

Not long ago I sat down with a pen and paper and asked my self what is it that I needed to do to succeed in my home business.

First, I wrote down allrepparttar things that I have read about in magazines, ebooks, etc...

Then I realized thatrepparttar 117136 majority of things that I wrote down were mainly "how to" focused. You know what I'm talking about, "how to get a business license, how to get organized, how to market, how to this and how to that..."

After reading over what I wrote I came torepparttar 117137 conclusion that I know "how to" succeed, but I did not convince myself that I could. I could not stay focused. So I figured if I could come up with someway to promise myself I would remain focused I could succeed.

So I came up with 5 promises. These promises have worked for me and I am sure they will work for you to.

Promise #1 -- You will maintain balance your life!

If your life is not balanced or stable, then being successful at a home business will be impossible. You have to be consistent at what you do and everything you pursue.

Promise #2 -- You will stop wasting money!

Early on you will find yourself buying up everything that claims to berepparttar 117138 next big thing in home business. Stop! Have you made any profit offrepparttar 117139 first course or classes you have took? Remember, profitability isrepparttar 117140 key.

Takerepparttar 117141 first course or class you took and applyrepparttar 117142 things you learned. Then re-studyrepparttar 117143 course or class. Maybe you missed some things or did understand some ofrepparttar 117144 tips or techniques.

The point is don't spend money onrepparttar 117145 next big thing until you have putrepparttar 117146 first course or class into action.

The goal: Make backrepparttar 117147 money you spent onrepparttar 117148 course. Sure you can claim it on your taxes but most ofrepparttar 117149 courses guarantee you that when you put what you've learned in action you can make three timesrepparttar 117150 money you spent onrepparttar 117151 course.

Now that's more like it. Remember, profitability isrepparttar 117152 key.

Promise #3 -- You will maintain good health!

You will not be able to succeed without good health. Imagine waking up every morning with slight cold or stuffy head.

How will you be able to stay focused on your business when every five minutes you are reaching for a Kleenex. People tend to forget about their health. If you are not feeling well then your business will suffer to.

Starting A Home-Based Business

Written by Kirk Bannerman

There are numerous reasons why people choose to start a home-based business. Some of those reasons include:

1. Dissatisfied with their present employment situation.

2. Out of work due to being laid off or downsizing by their employer.

3. A need to be home more with young children, an infirm family member, or aging parents. 4. A yearning to be their own boss. Whatever your particular reason for exploring a home-based business, there are a few common steps you need to take in order to launch your business.

First off, you need to come to grips with realistic in your expectations. Far too many folks read advertisements that are hype and imply quick money, and lots of it, from a home-based business start-up. It will certainly take a year, and in some cases it may take up to three years, before you begin to truly make a significant profit from your business.

I have helped a large number of people start up their own home-based businesses usingrepparttar Internet. Over time, I have come to recognize two ofrepparttar 117135 most important factors for identifying people that should NOT start a home based business. If a prospective entrepreneur says something like...

"I'm broke and need to make some money, fast!"


"I want to start a home-based business, but I don't want to spend anything on it until after I start earning some money." is certain that they have not addressed reality and, with that mindset, they will most certainly fail.

It takes a lot of time to successfully market and promote a new business. If you are planning a home-based business in order to spend a lot of time with young children or care forrepparttar 117136 elderly, a full-time business (and income) may not be a realistic objective.

Second, spend some time researching your business idea. Make sure there is truly enough of a market for your product or service. It's easy to fall intorepparttar 117137 trap of having a hobby or passion for something that you like to do and just assuming that you can turn it into an economically viable business.
