  1. 1. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1
  2. 2. Preface / IntroductionI have been marketing online now for 7 years. For the first couple of years I tried to do it all myself.By that I mean tried to write my own ad copy, use the affiliate pages that were provided and I setout to make my fortune. BOY..WHAT A SHOCK I GOT! ZERO RESULTS! Lots of money andendless time spent but nothing to show for it. Then lesson I learned??? YOU NEED MENTORS!People who have done it and are willing to show and teach you the ropes.I have had several since those first couple of years including Fran Klasinski, George Culp andSharon Ticknor of Viralhost.com. They taught me some of the basics I needed to learn in order tostand out from the crowd, get noticed and brand myself.

  4. 4. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1Are you an entrepreneur? Check these crucial attributes andsee if you really measure up. (You probably dont.)By Dr. Jeffrey LantAuthors program note. This is an article about bold, visionary, business risk- takers called"entrepreneurs". Such people, by their intelligence, diligence, and shear bravado, overawe movie andsports stars in public awareness and regard and dwarf any renown which may come with mere publicoffice, even the most high.Entrepreneurs are the heroes of our age; never have they been more discussed, emulated, veneratedand even worshipped as they are right now. On campuses around the nation and the world, the giantsof entrepreneurial fame draw standing room only crowds while mere authors, statesmen, andmusicians take second place, or worse.Oh, yes, these are the heady days for entrepreneurs. It is no wonder you wish to enroll yourselfamongst their ranks. But are you really cut out to be an entrepreneur? This article will make thatclear, one way or the other.To put you in the right frame of mind, Ive selected the theme music for the hit television series "StarTrek", which celebrates those who boldly go where no man has gone before. This music wascomposed by Alexander Courage for the series which debued in 1966. It is highly suitable for thosewho dont merely move into the future... they create it. You can easily find it in any search engine.Get it now... turn up the volume... and closely follow the points in this article which will make itclear whether you will captain your own Starship Enterprise, or not...What is an entrepreneur? Lets start with the definition.Entrepreneur was originally a French word taken over lock, stock and barrel by the English speakingworld, much to the dismay of the Academie Francaise, official guardian of the French language. Itsdefinition is "One who undertakes to start and conduct an enterprise or business, assuming fullcontrol and risk." Now lets see if you are this person.1) Entrepreneurs see the world not just as it is... but as it should be. From this fundamental fact aboutentrepreneurs all other facts derive.Scratch an entrepreneur and youll find a person who is not just tinkering with human reality today...but has been tinkering with it right from the get-go, even from the cradle. They never see just whatis... in their minds eye they see each and every situation as it can be... must be; they have only to dotheir bit.2) Entrepreneurs say with Harry S. Truman, who proved as president of these United States to havethe soul and inclinations of an entrepreneur, that "You cant have anything worth while withoutdifficulties". And, "Mistakes would be made. No one who accomplished things could expect toavoid mistakes. Only those who did nothing made no mistakes."Those without the blood and fiber of an entrepreneur live their lives in chagrined remembrance forall the mistakes, errors, miscalculations and bonehead decisions they have already made... and aresure, given the chance, they will make again. This paralyzes them... for they are sure that when theydecide, that decision will be wrong. On this destructive basis no progress is ever possible.Entrepreneurs are very different.Each and every decision made opens the possibility for error. This is the real world in whichhttp://www.HomeBizGroup5000.com Copyright Dale Thomson - 2012 4 of 22
  5. 5. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1entrepreneurs live and flourish... accepting whatever transpires as yet another valuable learning step,as they walk the road to improving the human condition.3) Entrepreneurs are "people-people". They understand their work, all their work, is for people,unlike those without the entrepreneurial wherewithal who, in this withering phrase, "love humanitybut hate people."An entrepreneur looks at a given situation and sees people unable to fulfill their God- given potentialbecause of a condition, an obstacle which can, given the idea, the desire, the resources, and theirown time and energy, be changed, improved, or even eradicated, sent to the scrap heap of invidious,enfeebling circumstances that the collectivity of entrepreneurs and their active, can-do ways haveremoved as obstacles to the perfectibility of mankind.In short, while others immerse themselves in fallibilities and dismay, the entrepreneur activatesTeddy Roosevelts celebrated recommendation to "do the best you can, with what youve got, whereyou are."They know to the depths of their being that there is nothing so wrong that cannot be righted by thesum and substance of their parts, their humanity, their problem-solving capabilities... and that je nesais quoi that distinguishes them from the run of mankind which sees obstacles as finalities... notchallenges which they can meet... with grace, joy, and gratitude that they had the chance to serve.4) Entrepreneurs crash, burn, hurt... and get up to try it all over again.In the international best-seller "Zorba the Greek" (published 1964), author Mikis Theodarakis writesof a young English entrepreneur who gets entangled with and wiped out by the bad advice and worseassistance of Zorba, who is at best a con man. He follows Zorbas catastrophic advice... and in amemorable scene watches as the Rube Goldberg machine Zorba has created collapses, costing theentrepreneur every cent he has... and more. For an instant, stunned by the implosion of all hisprospects, every dream and expectation, he is stupified, angry, lost. Then he shows the true grit ofeven the grieving entrepreneur, "Teach me to dance," he asks Zorba, not at all the line we expected...but should have. It is what a real entrepreneur would say... and dance the sirtaki.This is how entrepreneurs face catastrophe... for as Thomas Alva Edison, revered of Americanentrepreneurs, said, “I havent failed, Ive found 10,000 ways that dont work”, commenting on whathe learned from the exasperation of years of "failure." Sublime.5) Entrepreneurs uplift, never cast down.No one knows better than an entrepreneur how difficult the improvement of the human conditioncan be; certainly those without the entrepreneurial disposition and experience cannot.Thus, on any opportunity, wherever they happen to be, entrepreneurs lift up, encourage, and ease theway. Thus they administer in friendship and human solidarity essential truths and elements whichhave benefited them and from which hopeful others may benefit, too.Entrepreneurs carry with them at all times, truths and insights derived from their unique vantagepoints, practical advice and admonitions, steady advice, always utilitarian, on what to do... and whatnot to. They never think, as those without entrepreneurial proclivities do, that to give to others is todiminish yourself. Their point of view is radically different -- and always helpful.And one more thing...Entrepreneurs, however much they have managed to achieve alone, know that their success isalways predicated upon the dedicated assistance and endeavors of the crucial people who constitutetheir team. It is their honor, their pride and responsibility to recognize and thank these sinews ofhttp://www.HomeBizGroup5000.com Copyright Dale Thomson - 2012 5 of 22

  7. 7. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1Blunt assessment: why youre fooling yourself if you expectInternet success... and the one word that can turn it aroundfor you at once.By Dr. Jeffrey LantAuthors program note. Since 1993, I have been building an online business with my two admirablepartners, Sandi Hunter and George Kosch... and weve each made a tidy fortune. There are reasonswhy this has happened... and youre going to learn them here, now... because you have beendeluding yourself as to your chances for success, and it pains the three of us just how unrealistic youhave been, are today and, unless you heed this wake-up call, you will continue to be... and wouldntthat gall you? Well, then lets dig in to what you must do...and the crucial word you must tattoo onyour heart, mind, and spirit.... And to set just the right mood, listen as the force known as Jennifer Hudson show you how topour yourself -- everything thats in you -- into the demanding journey each of us must make toachieve success.Chances are, youve been stinting on the essential ingredient that makes it all possible... and thatingredient is YOU... and if you are not willing to make that commitment... that investment... thatcontract with yourself, then you cannot achieve success... and you are not worthy of the nameentrepreneur.Now... go to any search engine. Find "And I am telling you..." (released 2008). Turn up the sound tomaximum decibels and strip yourself. You are going to encounter a force of nature... and let everynote uplift you as you focus at last on what you must do... at once... andEVERY day!Okay, the crucial word is out of the bag... and that essential word is EVERY! Your business,whatever it is, is as demanding, as necessitous, as all-absorbing, as exciting as a new born baby...and you must approach it in the same way as a new child... with never-ceasing focus, with constantapplication, with a prayer in your pocket, a song in your heart and a "nothings going to stop me"attitude, fueled by planning, tempered by all the realities of any business, and an unstoppable desireto soar.Is this a lot to ask? If you answer yes, then you better keep your day job, because youll need all this-- and more. Now ask yourself whether you approach the job of building your empire with thisunblinking determination and joyful perseverance? If not, bail now... for you are the problem thatcannot, with such an outlook, be solved.Excuses, self-delusions, fatuities, absurdities.Each day I sit in our interactive Live Business Center and listen to a never-ending stream of"reasons" posted by people -- people who say they want an online business and online success. Hereare just a few of what these implausible, unlikely, indeed cannot be seen in any way, shape, or formas business builders and profit makers say... as to why they cannot start today, followed by ajaw-dropping saga of previous missteps, errors, miscalculations and horrors great and small.They tell me these things, as they would tell you if you gave them half a chance, so that their auditorwill feel sorry for them and allow them to stand before the world as a poor thing whose failuressomehow sanctify them and are worthy of empathy, understanding, and, if the world was just, apension that would absolve them from any further effort at all, ever.

  8. 8. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1margaritas, and a Jimmy Buffet parrot hat.This is, of course, ridiculous.People succeed in business because they master the well-known and proven essentials for success...the first of which is constant focus, then assiduous application, and just plain hard work.Then you must master what seems a never-ending list of precise tasks which are of the essence andabsolutely required for success, especially on line. These include (and not a single one is negotiableor can be thrust aside as insignificant)...... a clear understanding that the business world doesnt care whether you live or die; it has nointerest in your turbulent, unsatisfying memoirs, so important to you, so trivial to everyone else.Business -- and every successful business person knows this -- cares about one thing and one thingonly: what have you got for the customer that is superior to what is available elsewhere... and at aprice they can afford, and cheerfully do?It doesnt matter whether you are a "nice" person; it doesnt matter how hard you have thought youworked. It doesnt matter that you feel you deserve success. All this... and all the other astonishingmisperceptions you utter you may actually believe. Business is about value for customers and theway you identify these customers and make the best possible case; the case that makes you rich IFand ONLY IF you master the essential list creation and marketing tasks which must be doneEVERY day, EVERY day, EVERY day... and no amount of self-justification and special pleadingwill change this fundamental reality.You must know what your business demands of you... get on with the crucial business of doing eachand every necessary task, promptly, thoroughly, correctly. And none of this is negotiable, not asingle thing. Business waits for no one... and it will never, ever wait for you... whatever jejuneresponses you may feel justified in offering. In short, as Don Corleone and his "God Father"henchmen said, "Nothing personal"... its just the way it is... and youd better get that through yourhead right now... before you start justifying not doing this, avoiding that, and all the myriad ofexcuses of which you are the past master.And this is where I advise you, yet again and in the strongest possible way, that you succeed to theextent that you do your online business EVERY day... without fail... without cavil... without regret...and do it always with pride, energy, enthusiasm, and a clear understanding that you are a veryfortunate person indeed to have this chance which can so orchestrated deliver so much and sohappily.How much do you need today?In the early days of Worldprofit, Inc., our online company, George Kosch, our technical wizard,would tape a twenty dollar bill to the top of his computer and announce just how many of these weneeded on any given day to keep the doors open and make a profit. That was our focus for the day...first paying expenses... then making the profit for which we were in business in the first place.Some days were easy; there were even days (wonderful days!) that wed achieve our objective evenbefore wed finished the arduous task of going through the email. But there were also days, long,long days, when we had to work late to achieve the objective... because we had an immutablecompany policy that we would never charge the next day with covering the deficiencies of the last.And so we stayed late, worked hard, and, holding our noses, made deals to bring in the cash we hadto have.And heres the clincher: we did it gratefully because each action, every deal built the company andhttp://www.HomeBizGroup5000.com Copyright Dale Thomson - 2012 8 of 22
  9. 9. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1our clientele... and so appreciably moved us to our goal.Is this how you approach your business? Because if not, you need to reassess just what your aredoing... and just how you are doing it and you need to do this NOW... and EVERY day until youprofit. This is what entrepreneurs do... this is what you must do.Now turn on Jennifer Hudson again and listen to the pulsating sound that should be the current ofyour business day. And listen, now with a new ear, to her words and make them yours"Im not livin without you. I dont wanna be free Im stayin Im stayin"Now you, too, can soar.http://www.HomeBizGroup5000.com Copyright Dale Thomson - 2012 9 of 22

  14. 14. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1Planning on making money online this year? Unless youavoid these lethal mistakes you havent got a prayer.by Dr. Jeffrey LantAuthors program note. Like ABBA? I do. I think they produced some of the most clever, stylishand sophisticated dance music and rhythms ever. Like their mega-hit "Money, Money, Money"(released in 1976). Its not only one of the best jump-up songs ever, but its got a message you mayhave to take to heart if youre still trying (but consistently failing) to make money online.Its this: "If I got me a wealthy man..." Thats right, it may be time (and is probably way past time) touse your wiles and charm to snag a rich mate... because youre just wasting your time online...... unless....you take heed to the irrefutable verities about what you must know and do... and so finally turn theInternet into the cash hose its long been for people like me, who make money online daily, whileyou cant even figure out whos on first.Must avoid mistake #1.Dont work alone. Working online all by your lonesome is just plain nuts. I credit my awesomesuccess online to a crucial decision I made nearly 20 years ago: the overwhelming majority of onlineentrepreneurs need more skills -- technical, marketing, people -- than theyve got. For such people(and I very much include myself) success is unlikely, even impossible if you try to go it alone.Dont.Youre going to need cutting-edge tech experts; Internet marketing experts, and yes personnel tomake sales and bring in the bucks 24/7/365. Have you got this team in place? Well youd better getit together before you waste any more time and money.Must avoid mistake #2.STOP thinking, STOP believing you can built a profitable online business off free stuff. You cant.Say that again: YOU CANT! Bite this bullet here and now, once for all. Its going to cost youmoney to create a successful online business; just like it costs money to establish a successful offlinebusiness.If youve been trying and trying and trying to succeed online without investing youre probablybeyond hope. But lets assume youve still got some of your little grey cells in place and functional.Use some of them to get the money you need to create a profitable online business. Theres no wayaround it: it takes money to make money, and personally I wont even talk to the steady stream offolks who approach me without investment dollars in hand. Thats the "bad" news; the good news isthat its still ridiculously cheap to start a profit-making online business that can net you the minimum6-figure income it takes to live well these days.Must avoid mistake #3.Get educated about what you need to establish a money-making business online. Stop trying to"teach" yourself. If you knew how to make money online, I imagine youd be making money, right?But you dont. And you will never know if you have yourself as your prime expert and instructor.Bluntly, you know and can do too little to justify that.There are many fine online business-building instructors. I swear by mine: George Kosch. Hes beeninstructing me for almost 20 years now. Hes smart about what youve got to do in the constantlyhttp://www.HomeBizGroup5000.com Copyright Dale Thomson - 2012 14 of 22
  15. 15. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1changing net environment, a superb trainer and communicator.... good looking, too. Ive made outlike a bandit by putting my ego where it belongs (in some closet) and LEARNING from a man whoguarantees youll make money if you follow his proven system. I did... and I have.Must avoid mistake #4.You dont know how to generate unlimited traffic to your site...and until you do, YOURE DOA.That why you must become a traffic expert immediately, if not sooner.If you launch your online business without knowing precisely where your absolutely essential trafficwill be coming from, you deserve what you get: Nada! Nothing! Zip! Yet to my utter consternationand astonishment, not a day goes by when some knucklehead tells me he hasnt got guaranteedtraffic, doesnt know how to get it, but is a "survivor" wholl figure it out as he does. OMG! Suchpeople probably believe in the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. They are casualties just waiting tohappen.Here again I want to pat George Kosch on the back. The guy is a walking encyclopedia of each andevery way that exists to generate online traffic... and trains lucky folks like me to use these everysingle day. He does it in an amazing program called "Home Business Boot Camp"... and he guidesyou (with skill and patience) to get the traffic you must have... starting today! Hes got a worldwidefollowing who swear by his methods.... as I most assuredly do myself. Do you have a George Koschin your life? No? Then book your space in the lifeboat today... youll need it!Must avoid mistake #5.It happened again just yesterday. I was counseling a gent who told me hed bought some traffic; sentit to his home page... and didnt get a single response! What did he do wrong? Just everything...The first rule of successful traffic and crucial list building is to direct ALL traffic to a landing page.Why? Because thats the proven way to get traffic, traffic, traffic and build the prospect lists that arecrucial to online success. So, ask yourself this: do you know how to create and use landing pages?And be honest, totally honest with yourself, because if you get it wrong youre toast... (By the way,you wont be surprised to learn George Kosch -- there he is again -- writes my landing pages... andtheyre gold mines.)Well, Ive run out of space, with lots more to tell you, but thatll have to wait for another day. Now,Im heading over to my favorite search engine where that fabulous dance number by ABBA iswaiting for me (and you). As I listen to "Money, Money, Money" Ill know Im the rich guy yourelooking for, the guy who can give you that cushy life youd like. But why would I want an Internetloser in my life? After all, its a rich mans world...## What do you think? Let us know by posting your comments below.http://www.HomeBizGroup5000.com Copyright Dale Thomson - 2012 15 of 22
  16. 16. How To Build Your Home Based Business Part #1Flex. Pose. Flex again. And smile. An article you must read ifyou think youve got what it takes to be a successfulentrepreneur.by Dr. Jeffrey LantAuthors program note. To be honest with you, I hated working for people.
