Starting Home Business

Notice all the “Starting Home Business” posts you have been receiving? Are you interested in starting a business from home? You should be! Why? Because big business has failed us. Not only have they failed us, they don’t seem to “Get” that they failed us. We hear that the worst is over, then a friend calls that they have just been laid-off or we see the sign”Starting Home Business.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love business. However, I love small home based businesses not BIG bureaucratic businesses. In business school these days they seem to be teaching students more about how to manipulate the system rather than why business exists or what makes a business last. The education system in the United States has produced a whole new breed of Business School trained executives, whose loyalty is to finance and the manipulation of investments; who feel no obligation to be familiar with a company’s employees, product, manufacturing process or customers. There are exceptions, however, normally BIG equals bureaucracy and bureaucracy equals mediocrity.

Why do I bring all this negative “stuff” up? Because I want you to understand that you can put up your sign “Starting Home Business” and succeed when you care about your customers, community, family and friends. Caring is one of the building blocks to your success.

So how do you start your home business?

Go get a hand held mirror.

Bring it back with you to this computer screen, look into and say:

“As of this moment forward I am an independent home business owner.
My business is helping others find financial security and freedom.
I am starting part-time while I continue with my current position.”

Congratulations, you have taken the hardest step in starting a business from home.

You will note that I am suggesting that your business “is helping others find financial security and freedom.” I’m not suggesting that you start a business that requires a substantial investment like purchasing a franchise or producing products. In fact, I’m suggesting your home business be a people to people business. I believe that this is the type of business that provides you with the greatest opportunity for success with the least amount of risk.

Today, due to technical advances and the online revolution, doing business person-to-person is not in vogue. You hear about the thousands of dollars to be made by becoming an online affiliate. There are people making a lot of money online, however, affiliate marketing is very difficult for the novice or newbie as you will be called. A great deal of the money being made online is being made by experienced online marketers, sometimes called super-affiliates, selling their secrets to new affiliates and newbies. Much of the advice is good, however, I personally believe that the best home business to start is a person-to-person networking business.

What do you do next? Let everyone know by posting your “Starting Home Business” sign. Be flexible, open to change, aware of the opportunities that the universe presents to you – every day. Its scary! I know most likely you were not taught anything about business in high school or college. What I do know is that once you change, that is change your attitude about your home business, you will never turn back. Decide what type of people to people business you want to become involved with.

Also, it is very important that you understand that business can be fun? That’s right, FUN! Ever thought that it would be fun to be in business with your friends and people you enjoyed rather than strangers that you are thrown together with because of a paycheck? When you leverage your income with the income of your friends, family and associates, it’s fun. That’s what networking home based businesses are all about. And you can start a home based business with very little up front capital. When I say very little, I mean less than $50.

Have you considered starting a networking business? What questions do you feel people would like answered about opening a networking business? Post your questions to me.

Sometimes people take a short term view of their home based business. At times, on the Internet and in network marketing, I see people who view selling as taking advantage of others for a short term gain. Don’t do that! Don’t prey on each other, help each other. Find yourself a good company and build your business with it. Help others while you help yourself.
