The Secrets to a Stress Free Home Business

In life and in a home business there are many stressful situations. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or just someone starting to work from home the need to be competitive and earn money can be very stressful. Everyday home business entrepreneurs are faced with a whole list of decisions that need to be made.

The secret is to Relax – Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.

Just as in life, there is information coming at you from every direction. This is worse today than ever before. Everything that makes modern communication wonderful – email, texts, YouTube, Facebook – also makes communication a nightmare. Sometimes it is just TOO much. It’s an information overload.

Many new business people and especially home business and MLM networkers hit what is called analysis paralysis. The day you sign up to start your home business you are instantly inundated with emails from your upline as well as from the parent company. There are videos to watch, books to read, company websites to setup and products to try and to understand.  And this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Everyone out there is suddenly a ‘guru’ looking to help you.  All you need to do is sign up for their newsletter or buy there guaranteed program and you will be making money with your home business without even trying.

But along the way, many home business hopefuls get stuck in the trap of trying to learn everything before they do anything.

They become paralyzed.  Always wanting to know how everything works before they move forward with their business. Feeling crushed under the weight of trying to have a blog and a Facebook page and an autorespond system and of course the home parties and contacting the warm market and making the list and…

I mean it is just a little intimidating.

So I say – STOP!  RELAX!!

Go back to the beginning.  Think about why you started this whole thing in the first place.  What made you choose the company you signed up with. What part of this whole thing looked like fun – like something you wanted to do even if it was just a part time kinda thing.

Start there.  Share what you love.  Share what got you excited.  Move toward the stuff you like.  If its being social then get on Facebook and maybe do the home party thing.  If its technical, then write the blog about all the ins and outs of the business or the product.

Find what you love to do, learn how to do it.  Keep playing with it and learning more because you are having fun at it.  Everytime you learn something you are now able to teach the next guy.  You don’t have to have 10 years more experience then the next guy to become his teacher, mentor, coach, upline – you only need to have learned something they don’t know.  Something that helps create success.

So Relax, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.

Learn and Do what you love what you BELIEVE IN

TAKE ACTION each day to move forward – no matter how small the step.

BE DETERMINED to be the success you want to be.

And have the CHARACTER to be true to yourself.  Don’t overhype or make false claims.

By being yourself and being relaxed and taking it all with a grain of salt, you will attract people.  People like you.  People you can help and people who will take those same relaxed steps to success that you are taking.

And you know what.  It won’t work for everyone you meet.  Not everyone will be successful.  Not everyone can have the COURAGE to move forward and be a part of the change they want.

But that’s OK.  Don’t take it personally.  Just keep movin’ and grovin’ and doing what is right for you.

THAT is how you will become successful. Because success is not always how fast or how rich or how big you or your business are, it is also how satisfied and how happy and how enjoyable the climb can be.

Just remember these Rules:

Rule 1. Relax – Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

Rule 2: In the big scheme of things – It’s ALL small stuff.

What Would You Spend to Create Your Future

The Best Home Business Opportunity

What would you spend to create your future? to find the best home business?

A Franchise?

So you want a business and you are thinking about a Franchise, probably only because you have not been told how many years it will take to pay off that loan for a franchise or how your health may suffer due to stress.

In life and in business your belief system is your guide to the steps you take and the paths you follow.

The dictionary defines belief as something you accept as true or real; a firmly held opinion or conviction. Everyone believes in something or someone.  It might be a belief in God, a belief in yourself, or a belief in a system or a set of rules.

It is your set of beliefs and convictions that guide you on the decisions you make every day.  They are the basic premises that form the character, trust and commitment we exhibit. [Read more...]

Character Counts: In Life and with a Home Business

Character Counts: In Life and in a Home Business

The dictionary defines character as the mental and moral qualities of an individual.

I would define character as the value that encompasses many of your other values such as trustworthiness, honesty, respect, and reliability.  It has been said that character is what you do when no one is looking.

To me character is one of the most important things you possess in life.  Your character defines who you are and how you are viewed by the rest of the world. [Read more...]

Choose the Right MLM Company

So you’ve made the decision to get involved with MLM or Network Marketing. You might have read all the literature about how it’s a great marketing plan and that it’s recommended by such people as Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump.

But now you are not sure what company you should work with. Why is one organization superior to another?

Well I am here to tell you that if you simply want to join, stand on the corner next to the homeless guy and put on your sign “Searching for MLM Company”. You will create a traffic jam of network marketers jumping out of their car and racing to sign you up.

But once you sign on the dotted line what do you really get. Never assume all MLM organizations are the same. From payment plans to training there’s a lot to know before you press go.

Below are a few things to consider (your guidelines, so to speak) [Read more...]

Define Commitment

The dictionary defines commitment as the act of pledging oneself to an idea, cause or action.

To me commitment means “sticking it out”.

Every day we set goals – most of them little but sometimes they are big – or we sign up to do something.  It is very important to work at these goals and tasks and keep working on them until they are finished. [Read more...]

How many times do you find yourself driving home from work or school frustrated with your job, your boss and hating it all. I know I have been there many times.

But the next day, like you, I would get up and do it all again; usually with the same result. [Read more...]

The Secret is in the System

Learn to Choose the Right Home Business Opportunity

You find yourself sitting in front of your computer.  You have three different windows open each with a different ‘opportunity’ flashing in your face.

This window screams about the amazing compensation plan you just can’t live without, while that one flashes the “amazing” products they offer across the screen; the products that simply sell themselves.  And finally the third window promises fistfuls of money and a plan that keeps it coming in while you enjoy yourself at the beach.

Network Marketing – A Family Business

Working From Home

As I look around at the many things I want to do in my life, one of those is having my own business.

My dad had a business that allowed him to work from home and I thought it was great. I always had access to both of my parents growing up and I think it really made a difference in who I am now as an adult.

More often than not both parents have to work outside the home in today’s society. I know my wife and I are both at work everyday. We are both teachers, so we do have the same time off as our kids do, but I still feel as though all of us are missing out.

Network Marketing

Here is a business opportunity that allows anyone to work from home, set up a home office with all its tax benefits and do it for very little start up costs. [Read more...]
