Just because you have to set up a work schedule, doesn’t mean that you have to keep the same hours as everyone else. One of the benefits of working for yourself is setting your own hours to fit your most productive times. Whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you’ll find that you’ll get much more done when you’re attuned to your body’s own natural rhythms. Some people work in the morning, take a break in the afternoon when the kids are home from school, and work again in the evening. Schedule your work time when you feel the most productive and you’ll find that things get done easier, faster and better than when you were dragging along during those same rigid work hours that everyone else has.
This is going to be a “well duh” moment when you read this. Ready? The hot button is Hope! Hope is why people join business opportunities, why they seek them out, and why they’ll sit through your hour long presentation displaying your soaps, lotions, and super powerful vitamins. It’s all because of hope. What are they hoping for? It’s shouldn’t be too hard to figure out because it’s the same stuff you’re hoping for. They’re hoping for a better life. They’re hoping to stop the stress of where the money for the next bill is going to come from. Or worse yet (and more true these days), where the money for the big leaning pile of bills on the counter is going to come from.
If you spend your time being the “go-for” for your family and friends, your business will fail. You are not at home to be at the beck and call for your family and friends regardless of what they may think. Let them know that. I stubbornly refuse to assist family and friends with tasks during the hours of 8 to 5, Monday through Friday.
There are some home business opportunities that are scams. They try to sell you on the get rich quick method and want you to make money. Often these opportunities are packaged in MLM opportunities. This bad name caused many companies to transform from MLM to Network marketing.
If you were to start a franchise for instance you would be looking at thousands of dollars of investment plus the long hours and it would take a long time to repay back your initial franchise fee back. Plus the hassles of staff, overhead and premises. You don’t have those problems with an online business venture.
3) You should be provided with marketing materials that will get you started immediately. New business owners will not have the knowledge to create their own marketing materials. Of course, when you are more experienced, it will always be a good idea to learn how to create your own materials.
You have desires and wishes. Maybe you’ve had a time where there was no hope, and how empty that made you feel. What would have been the thing that made you perk your ears up and pay attention? I can tell you that it’s always benefits rather than features. The benefits of your products will tug at the emotions of a prospect, and through the emotions is where people truly make their decisions. We all want more good things, more good health, and more good feelings. If you can make someone see that on the horizon then you’ve tapped into their hope.
Now, unfortunately, none of us can go back in time and stake our claim in any of the companies that were named when they first got started, but there are some new, up and coming ones that give us the same potential of financial success as the huge conglomerates that were mentioned.
