Those who treat their home based businesses like a BUSINESS and those who treat it like a HOBBY. Believe it or not that can make the difference between being someone who makes a few hundred maybe even a couple thousand a month and those people who make hundreds of thousands every year!
  2. 2. If you’d like to be in the category of people who make 6 or 7 figures a year in your home based business listen up because this could truly be the article that changes your business forever! 95% of all people in network marketing treat their businesses like a hobby. What do I mean by that exactly? They don’t have set work hours. They don’t have their goals set in stone. They don’t have enough “skin in the game.” And they don’t expect success. Let’s look at each of these things one at a time and you decide for yourself if you have a “business” or a “hobby”. One of the top reasons why people want to work for themselves because they want to work WHEN they want to work. Now that can be a good think or a bad thing. Yes it is awesome to be able to move your work hours around your life, things like family outings, school plays, little league games. However, in the beginning at least, it’s very important that you write down the hours you plan to work each week. That doesn’t mean that you have to work 9-5 Monday through Friday it just means that you need to keep track of how often and how long you are actually working your business. A lot of people fail because they think they are working more than they actually are. By setting out times and days when you will shut out the world and just work on your business you ensure that you get the work done and keep your business on the right track! It could be as simple as working 2 hours before you go to work in the morning, 2 hours when you come home and 3 hours on weekends. Or it could be that you only work Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays but on those days you block off 4 hours at a time to call prospects or market online. Whatever it is that you choose map it out and then stick to it!
  3. 3. Not having your goals set in stone is another problem that may home business owners face. Think of it this way, if you were going to invest your money in opening your own restaurant you’ve need to have financial goals right? I mean you’d need to know how much you needed to make each month to cover your expenses and still have a good profit left over. You would also probably have an idea of how your business should be progressing over the next 6, 12 and even 24 or 36 months. Simply put if you aren’t writing out the goals you have for your business and looking at them every day you are treating your business more like a hobby and less like a business. Now what do I mean when I say, “the don’t have enough skin in the game”? Well let’s go back to the restaurant analogy again for a moment. All traditional brick and mortar businesses cost a LOT of money up front to start. That’s why people take them so seriously. To start a business it can cost hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars to get it off the ground. The traditional home based business usually costs less than $1000 to get started and in a lot of cases under $500. Do you see the difference? Hundreds of thousands VS. a few hundred, there is no mistaking that you’re probably going to take the more expensive business more seriously. However, that can be what hurts you in your home based business. Just because a business might not cost that much to start doesn’t mean it can’t generate you 6 or 7 figures. So make sure you treat your $400 business (or however much it is) like it’s a million dollar investment and you’ll work that much harder to see success! Finally we come to one of the biggest problems, not expecting success. If you’re going to be a part of a home based business, well really ANY business, you have to EXPECT to succeed.
  4. 4. I hear so many people say “Well I’m gonna give this thing a shot” and guess what the people who say that usually don’t make any money. If you expect to fail you will most likely fail. However, when you expect to succeed it’s only a matter of time until you will. Nobody would start a traditional business and say “Well we’ll see how this thing goes” NO WAY! When you start a business you have to KNOW you’re going to profit otherwise it’s just a waste of time and money. The difference between success and failure really is right between your ears. So what do you think? Have you decided if you’re treating your business like a business or a hobby yet? If the answer is “hobby” I hope that you understand that that can all change TODAY! Take the tips I’ve given you and start yourself on the pathway to amazing success with the help of your home based business right now!
