You know them by heart – all those reasons why a home based business would solve all your problems. It’s a litany which runs over and over in your mind.
• More time with the family!
• You’re the boss, no time card!
• No set schedule — work whenever you like!
• Dress the way you want; work in your jammies and barefoot!
• Making a living without leaving the house!
• You’d be free – free – free!
You’d enjoy the benefits; you’d have the flexibility to be there for your family, and spend more time with your children. You’d arrange your work schedule around them... your expenses would go down, your productivity would go up. NO MORE OFFICE POLITICS!
So you surf the net... drooling over the idea. You’ve read every ‘Work from Home’ site out there... at least twice. These things never work, you mumble to yourself. They never give you everything you need to succeed. If they’d just let you in on that one final secret to success; you could do it. That’s all you need; then you would make it.
Well actually, there are two; Two Deep Dark Secrets. These are the last two pieces of the puzzle; the missing links; two things most new internet marketers miss entirely. These are the final secrets to getting results from your online business, the final ingredients which will allow you to become a Master Marketer. And I’m going to give them to you for free:
If you’re like most of us, you have a long list of free products you’ve downloaded and maybe a few you’ve purchased that show you how to start you own home business. Have you read them? Have you really read them? And if you did, then did you read them again – maybe taking some notes? You’d be astounded by what you’ll pick up the second time around. Did you devour them?
Keeping up to date by investing in informational products is a must; but it’s equally important to actually read the books and put them into practice. You don’t need to buy every new product that comes out, looking for the 'secret ingredient' that will finally bring you success. You’re the secret ingredient.
The first big secret then is this; read those books you download (even the free ones). Take the good information and ignore the rest. Study the information; take notes. Then get busy!
So now you are totally overwhelmed by all the work from home information you’ve downloaded onto your computer. How can you possibly implement all of this? There’s more here to do than you can ever accomplish.
Okay, I’ll agree, you can’t do it all today. But as they say, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day.’ Which leads us to the second big secret; you can start your home based business, ‘one step at a time.’ Get the basics, either from a helpful website, or by purchasing an informational product. (You’ll probably want to purchase one or two really good resource books to get started, but check your computer first; you may have already downloaded sufficient information... all you have to do is read it.)
Make a plan of action and begin setting up your business. Then follow your plan; a list of the most logical and important ‘next steps’ for your business. As you complete one phase, you move on to the next. And suddenly, you don’t have massive amounts of improvements to make; you just have one next phase to accomplish.
You’ll be focused on your goals. Every day when you begin work, you’ll always know what you’re going to do; it’s the top thing on your list. You work on it until it’s completed. Then you move on to the next phase. Before long you’ll be looking back at how far you’ve come rather than wringing your hands in frustration over how far you have to go. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step – and now you know the first and most important two.
