Home Business Ideas and Opportunities

If I had more time to start online business.

One of the most common objections that prospects like to throw up when you introduce them to Network Marketing or just any business from home computer (or WiFi connection)  is “I don’t have the time.”

Don’t believe that, and here’s one reason why… There was a recent study that talked about television time. This study showed that the average American watches about 27 hours a week watching television. Let me give you some break downs of this…

Let’s watch and listen to what Eric Worre says about that…

Those under 24, average about 22 hours a week watching television. That might sound better than the national average, but that’s because those people are sitting with their devices watching YouTube, playing games, and texting like crazy.

Their brains are still being sucked into a device. One of the things that shocked me is that the older a person gets, the more television they watch. They don’t become wiser and decide to spend their time doing something else. They become more absorbed into the machine.

The study showed that if you’re over 65, the average is over 50 hours a week on television. So, the older we get instead of becoming more engaged with the world, we become less engaged in the world, in business, and in contributing to others.

Imagine if people took those 27 hours, and devoted it to building their future instead of being plugged into the system like a battery in a machine. After all, how much contribution can you have on the world if you’re spending 27-50 hours a week watching television? So, when people tell you that they don’t have the time, don’t call them a liar but don’t believe their story either.

Show them that there is a better way than plugging into the latest television series. There’s a better way than just becoming a super consumer and being told what to buy, how to feel, and what to do. There’s a better way than sitting on your couch. There’s a big world out there. Let’s get out there and contribute to it.


Why not to take 1 hour a day and to try to build online business from home?

How to respond to “I don’t have the money”?

“I can’t afford it.”

Even though I use this marketing system that works on autopilot and do not have to persuade people to be my partner. Sometimes you can hear and see it in emails or if you chat with people on Facebook.

“I can’t afford it.” I’ve heard and read those words plenty of times in nearly ten years of growing my business, and if you’re offering programs or products in your business, I’m sure you have too.

What you may not know, however, is that those words are rarely the real reason a potential client isn’t buying from you.

I would recommend to listen how Eric Worre explains this situation.

Eric Worre – Network Marketing Pro.

More comments on this question from – Heather Cottrell (business consultant)

The thing is, your potential client is most likely not going to express her true feeling to you directly. In fact, she may not realize it herself. It is so much easier to just say “I can’t afford it.”

In reality though, it is a very low percentage of people in the US who can’t find a way to raise the money they need for something that’s important to them.

For some people, it’s the latest and greatest TV that they prioritize, and they will open a new credit card to buy it. For your Ideal Client, her health is the priority and she’d be willing to forego the daily Starbucks run, cut back on eating out in restaurants, have a garage sale and maybe turn off the cable, in order to pay for the program or product you’re offering.

There’s always a way, and I’ve seen my clients get brilliantly creative to invest in themselves.

It’s not your job to guess what a potential client can or cannot afford. Only he knows what his priorities are and how willing he is to invest in himself.

Nine times out of ten, if a potential client says “I can’t afford it” the real reason is one of these:

“I’ve bought or signed up for a program or product like yours before, and I didn’t really use it so I’m afraid I’ll be wasting more money.”

“I’m not really resonating with you or your style (but I’m not going to tell you that).”

“I thought I was ready to make a real change in my life, but now that I’m talking to you and get the sense you *really* know what you’re talking about, I’m afraid to make this commitment to myself.”

It’s unlikely you’ll ever hear one of these true reasons. It’s so much easier to say “I can’t afford it” so that’s the main reason you will get when a potential client chooses not to buy from you. It’s important for you to know this.

In the rare case when a client is able to express that she’s hesitating because she’s afraid of making a real change in her life, you might try and walk her through this fear. When she truly sees the value of working with you and feels the very real possibility of huge results, her fears suddenly get triggered. The fear of change, of leaving her old self behind, the fear of really stepping up and having the life she dreams of.

If it feels good to do so, you might share a related story from your own past or about one of your other clients. You can tell her it’s perfectly normal to have that fear, and remind her of the cost of NOT investing in herself.

If you’re hearing “I can’t afford it” too often

Even when things are going well, you’ll still get the occasional “I can’t afford it” throughout your business. That’s OK. Let those go, and don’t even worry about it.

However, if you’re hearing “I can’t afford it” on a frequent basis, I recommend you ask yourself the following questions:

1) Am I really ready to have clients and get paid for my expertise?

It’s very possible that your own money issues are at the heart of this problem, not your clients’. You may be ignoring some of your own doubts and fears, and they’re coming through in the way you market yourself and the way you talk with potential clients.

Check in with yourself about the business you’re trying to build. Are you offering products and services you really love? Are you charging what feels really good to you? How can you clear up your own money issues?

Also notice if you’re saying “I can’t afford it” about investing in your own health, life or business. Figure out the real reasons you’re not investing in yourself and clear that up. When you’re feeling abundant, and prioritizing your money around what’s most important to you, you will attract more of the same in your clients.

2) Are you over-describing the Hows of the work you do with clients?

Many practitioners give too many details on their website and during an initial consultation about all the steps involved in the transformational process they offer their clients. Problem is, doing this can make it sound too challenging or intimidating.

Your potential client only wants to know what the possible results are, and they want to feel comfortable with you. Let the rest unfold after they have chosen to work with you.

Keep your early interactions with potential clients – including your website, blog, newsletter, public talks and initial consultation – focused on the challenges they want to overcome and the results they can enjoy by working with you.

3) Are you undervaluing the work you do?

If you don’t fully see the value in your products or services, then your potential clients won’t see it either. If they can’t see the value, no price – no matter how small – is going to be right.

You have to see the value of your work, and charge accordingly. Contrary to what you might think, people are more likely to choose an expensive option over a cheap one if they see its value. The higher price tag creates the feeling that they’re getting the best (even though this is not always the case, unfortunately).

So don’t set out to undercharge or downplay the value of what you offer. Do the opposite. Make it clear how valuable your programs and products are, and then lower the price as a discount, if that feels good to you.

4) Are you asking for the sale and making it easy for your potential client to say yes?

This can sometimes be a communication issue or a tech issue. First get clear exactly what you want to charge for the product or service you’re offering, and what payment options you’ll accept. If you’re comfortable offering a payment plan, be ready to clearly describe how it works, what each payment is and when each is due.

I strongly recommend you accept credit cards (PayPal is the easiest way to get started), as that’s the easiest way for your clients to safely pay you during a consultation, make a purchase from your website or set up their own financing plan to pay for your high-end service.

Practice the money conversation with your coach or a friend, so that it flows off your tongue easily when you’re speaking with a client. Practice asking them directly if they want to enroll in your program or buy your product, and describing the price and how to pay.

If you’re describing payment options in writing on a salespage, have your coach or a trusted colleague review it for you. Simple and clear wins when it comes to talking money.

5) Are you clear who your Ideal Clients are?

Health coaches often forget to add “She’s ready to change her life” to their Ideal Client description. And this shows up in the way you market your services, and who you’re marketing to.

Get clear that your Ideal Client is ready to invest, ready to do the work and excited about making a transformation. Think of a former client, or friend, who fits that description, and be sure to write every word of your website content, newsletters and social media posts, with her in mind.

Speak to those people – not the many unsures out there – and you’ll attract more of them to your initial consultations, thus eliminating the “I can’t afford it” excuse that’s masking the “I’m not ready” reality.

How to respond to “I can’t afford it”

When a client says “I can’t afford it”, don’t be tempted to start lowering your prices for them. Your program or product will only lose value in his eyes if you suddenly drop the price. Chances that he’ll buy from you at the lower price are extremely slim. Chances that you’ll feel good about it and enjoy working with that particular client are also slim.

You don’t have to do anything, or even respond, to a client who says “I can’t afford it”. You could say “Thanks for letting me know” and wish them well. Or, if it feels good to do so, you could consider one of these other options:

If you already offer a smaller version of the program or product your client was considering, you might offer her that as an alternative. Point out that the results will be different, but the price tag might be easier for her to commit to.

If you’re comfortable accepting a payment plan for your larger service, you can offer that as an alternative to your pay-in-full price.

Otherwise, let her know she can contact you when she’s ready to invest in herself, and until then stay in touch via your newsletter. That’s it. You don’t need to do anymore, or try to persuade her to work with you. Keep your focus on clients who are ready to work with you.

Warren Buffett always worked with a simple long-term investment

Warren Buffett explains how you could’ve turned $114 into $400,000 with a simple long-term investment.

Many of us know the magic of investing money in the stock market—just letting it sit and watching it grow—but few of us really grasp just how powerfully enriching this can be. Not surprisingly, Warren Buffett, the world’s greatest investor, has a vivid example of this which he shared with me during a visit earlier this year at Berkshire Hathaway headquarters in Omaha.

First, take yourself back, way back to America’s entry into World War II. Franklin Roosevelt was president and Buffett was a young boy. And as you may know young Buffett, unlike most kids his age interested in games or sports, was basically consumed by the stock market. And at that dark moment in US history, Buffett was ready to take action.

“Let me give you a figure that’ll blow your mind I think. I bought my first stock when I was 11 years old. It was the first quarter of 1942, shortly after Pearl Harbor,” Buffett recalls. “I spent $114.75, [for] shares [of a stock.] $114.75. If I put that $114 into the S&P 500 at that time and reinvested the dividends, think of a figure as to what it…would be worth today,” he asked me?

So, what do think?

$10,000?

$75,000?

I’ll give you some help. That’s way low.

Let’s pick it up with Buffett again: “The answer is about $400,000. So if I as a little kid had taken that 114 bucks I’d saved— shoveling snow (LAUGH) or whatever I’d done, [I’d have] $400,000 today. [In] one person’s lifetime. That’s America. I mean, that isn’t me. You know, it’s the huge tailwind the American economy gives to any equity investor.”

Buffett acknowledges that it’s not always easy to stick with it all the way through.

“Now, the market’s gone down many times during that time,” he reminded me. “People have panicked during that time. Headlines have been terrible. You know, it looked like we were losing the war when we first got in. But America is a powerful economic machine that, since 1776, it’s worked and it’s gonna keep working.”

And then he’s almost giving me a pep talk. As in, ‘come on, you can do this!’

“Now, you don’t wanna buy to hold for a year, you don’t wanna buy with the idea that you could sell it in two years or three years necessarily, to make money. You may— you could lose money that way,” he says. “But if you buy it for $10, $20, just keep buying the S&P 500 index and forget about all the other nonsense that’s being sold to you because I’ll guarantee you one thing about (LAUGH) the stuff being sold to you, it will carry bigger fees than what (LAUGH) I’m talking about.”

By that last point Buffett means those big management or brokerage fees would eat up your returns in a huge way and you’d end up with far less that $400K.

So here’s a big question: Will it happen again? In other words, if you invested a similar sum and held it for the same 76 years or so, would you still make out—maybe not exactly the same of course—but would you still make out like a bandit?

Buffett answers that if not directly, then directionally.

“The S&P 500 companies have earned well over 10% on equity, often 15% annually for years, and years, and years, and years,” Buffett says. “They’ve done it— with Democratic administrations, with Republican administrations. Now, you get money compounding at that kind of rate underlying your investment, and you get a diversified group of that, I mean, you’re going to do well.”

You pick up these kinds of things from investing for almost eight decades.

Warren Buffet strategy is good for young people who have enough time to invest.

Kentucky Fried Chicken box?


Kentucky Fried Chicken box?

Quick, whose portrait is on the side of a…

Kentucky Fried Chicken box?

Colonel Sanders. Right.

The guy who devised the famous “11 Herbs and Spices” recipe that became the most popular chicken franchise in the world.

But do you know what the famed 11th spice was?

According to legend, Sanders was broke and going from restaurant to restaurant and challenging the chefs. “I’ll bet my chicken recipe is better than yours”…and he always lost that bet…but at least he got a free meal out of the ruse.

Well, one day he was running the same schtick on a local bar owner.

The bar owner said, “I’m trying to sell beer, not chicken. This chicken needs WAAAAY more salt, so my customers will order more beer to quench their thirst!”

So, the bar owner shook a few shakers of salt onto the Colonel’s chicken and said, “Now this is GOOD”.

Sanders hated the taste of it…but he was no dummy. “If this is what the customer wants, then I’ll give it to him.”

The secret 11th ingredient? Plain old table salt!

What does this have to do with your online business? (again this thing “never give up”) and many platforms with training.

45minPayDays

Well, sometimes the key to your success is hiding in plain site. Sometimes, it’s not a matter of a miracle or some crazy new online sales formula.

It’s not some wild, undiscovered herb or spice.

Sometimes it’s following a simple recipe. Sometimes it’s the simplest ingredient that puts the recipe over the top.

Now many programs for home-based biz have their recipe.

It’s not complicated. It’s not bizarre. It’s just some steps (1-2-3 or 21 proven steps). A recipe anyone can follow.

Time management.

How do you fill your “bucket of time”?


Don’t fill bucket of time this way.

If this is the way you fill your “bucket of time”. Don’t do this year!

Let me explain. Of course, many entrepreneurs know this idea.

How do you plan your 2018? (still it’s not late)

What you (and I) need to do better, is decide what are the most important things we have to accomplish in our home businesses in the next 90 days, and then focus on getting them done.

These are what you call your ‘Rocks.’

First, put big ‘rocks’ in the bucket.

Imagine, The big glass container represents your time.

Lets call it the next 90 days.

Next to it, you have some big rocks, pebbles, sand, and water.

If you put in the water and sand first, they’ll fall right to the bottom.  Then if you add in the pebbles, they’ll sit immersed in the water, on top of the sand.

Then if you try to put in the big rocks, they’ll sit on top of everything else, and they won’t all fit.

But…

If you do it another way, it’s possible to get everything to fit in the jar just nicely.

First put in the big rocks.

Then the pebbles are poured in, and they all fall between the gaps in the rocks to the bottom.  Then the sand is poured, and finally the water.

Everything fits.

Here’s the lesson;  those rocks represent the big, important things you have to do each day.

It could be sending an email to your list.  Hosting a sales webinar.  Setting up a joint venture deal.

Planning the outline of a new product. Making 10 sales calls.

Basically the important things that move your business forwards.

The pebbles, sand, and water represent the lesser important ‘busy’ work.

A pebble might be taking a phone call with a colleague in your industry, and chatting about how things are going in your businesses.

You might get some value out of this call.  But more likely, you’ll burn up 30 minutes of time and it won’t impact your business.

The sand could be you responding to a few urgent but unimportant emails.

The water is you checking Facebook, Skype, Snapchat, Twitter… or getting sucked into watching time wasting videos on Youtube.

The water activities are incredibly tempting.  They don’t require much deep thought, and are entertaining.

But they do nothing to move your business forwards.

My big goal in 2018 is to focus more on the rocks and leave the pebbles, sand and water to the end of the day IF I have time.

Matt Lloyd, founder and CEO of MOBE

By the way – I didn’t come up with this analogy.

I read about it in this book by Verne Harnish, it’s called ‘Scaling Up.’ (thanks to my mentor, Matt Lloyd for this reminder).

If you’ve got a business that’s doing 5 figures annually and you want to scale to 6 figures, you’ll get a lot out of this book.

And if you have a new business and / or you’re not yet making a lot of sales, you’ll still get some useful insights out of it.

Any opportunities / distractions that come up during those 90 days, will have to go on the waiting list for the next 90 days.  Completing the current Rocks will be the number one priority.

My advice to you is to start operating your own home business (set your own schedule).

Decide on what the most important things are to accomplish in the next 90 days, and block out everything else.  What few important projects will result in the greatest amount of sales?

If you focus on these things, you’ll be able to complete 2017 having accomplished a few super important projects that catapulted your business forwards, rather than half-completed 100 different things that were not really that important in the first place.

Is 15 min of your time worth $300?

Your Only Limit Is You.

Nowadays, the belief that your only limit is you is an actual fact. Each day, ever more evidence comes to confirm this point as an inevitability. You should be aware that your mind is everything and controls every aspect of your life. It has even a significant influence over your body.

By knowing that your only limit is you, you can use your determination to take action and do so. You have to prepare and get ready to get to the top by looking at the summit and not to the bottom. You have to be inspired and keep striving to be the best you can be. So, I wish you great success!

How is it possible? Why is your mind creating limits? How can you get past those boundaries?

To begin with, your body hears all things your mind thinks or says. So, if your mind, for example, can talk your body into feeling right or wrong, what else can it do and what power does it have? Have you ever paid attention to the way you speak to yourself? What does it look like?

The difference is how you look at the glass, is it half empty or half full? You see, when you think about it, your only limit is you. Perhaps you have never actually considered this small distinction as necessary before. However, it can make an enormous divergence in what you achieve in life. Only because when you believe that you cannot, you put a limit on your potential.

The fact is that when you let your thoughts wander, and your mind consider that there are limits, you start to get doubts. Therefore, you think your glass is half empty, and you tell yourself that you cannot. Then, of course, what unfolds is that you begin to believe that you cannot indeed.

The Only Limit Begins in Your Mind
To get rid of any limit, you have to establish in your mind that what you desire is stronger than anything else you want. Then, you have to burn the bridges behind you and say once and for all that this is it. That way, you have no retreat and no choice but to continue all the way to achievement.

To go for what you want is not so hard if you are determined, but to stay motivated is what is challenging. It is quite easy to dream big when your dreams are just in your head. The only limit comes when you have to do the tough things such as the everyday grind, the perspiration, and the hard work.

Believing in yourself is the best thing you can have as it tears down any doubt you might have. It is hard to get over doubts even you do not believe in yourself, and it cripples you. Disbelief, uncertainty, and doubt are things that make everything else seem impossible. So when you realize that your only limit is you, you find a way to believe in yourself again and therefore, nothing can stop you anymore.

There is no escape; everybody has a hard road. But your mind is everything. If you do not believe you can do something, then you cannot. You have to fight to get greatness. It is like having to save your own life. Nobody is going to do it or save it for you.

Limit and the Power of the Mind
You got to give everything you have to get where you want to be. Dwelling and crying won’t help a bit. If you quit, you are going to lose. When you have a resolution, and I am not talking about a New Year resolution, but a real one, something to accomplish, you have the resolve, and you know that it is going to happen.

7 Things Every Home Business Entrepreneur Needs To Know

Get My Marketing System Free ^

Looking back on many unsuccessful attempts at home business, we wish we had received guidance from someone who had already been down the road we wanted to travel. We had so many failures that we were starting to doubt that success in a home business would ever happen for us.

Thankfully, we didn’t give up and through perseverance, we were able to achieve the success that had eluded us for years. Along the way, we discovered many things that we wish we had known when we started this journey.

Our success has literally transformed our lives. We believe that to whom much has been given, much is required. Consider this information our gift to you. If we can be of assistance please, do not hesitate to fill out the contact form at TheHomeBusinessPodcast.

1. Success doesn’t happen overnight.

For some reason, people think that they should become rich in a few months with their new home business and some people believe success should happen within weeks or days! We introduced a man in his early 50’s to our business and he was excited. When we first met he complained that he had been working hard for more than 30 years and he was broke.

He said he never had any time for himself or his family. We told him what it would take to become successful and he agreed to do it. Then, he disappeared. A few weeks later he called to tell me that he was quitting. He hadn’t even started and here he was ready to give up.

We asked him if he would be better off quitting his full-time job and keeping his home business! Of course, we didn’t really mean that he should quit his job, but he had been working full-time for more than 30 years and he was still broke. He started his home business just a few weeks earlier and he never gave it a chance.

Why is it that so many people think that they should become wealthy in a few weeks? The answer probably lies in all the get rich quick schemes that are so prevalent in our society today. You’ve seen the emails or read these lines in your junk mail. No Selling, We Do All The Work For You, Make $30,000 in 90 days and on and on.

Those get rich quick scams cause people to think that every home business is a scam and that’s not true. We just got off the phone with Doug, a nice guy who is seriously considering our home business. During our conversation, we made it clear that he wouldn’t be rich in 60 or 90 days and his response was the kind of response we hear often, “Thanks for telling me the truth. I’m happy to know that I’m dealing with people of integrity.”

We were frustrated so many times in the first year of our home business that quitting seemed like the sensible thing to do. After all, these things don’t work. Who do you think you are? Why don’t you just get a job like everybody else? These thoughts and many, like them nearly kept us from success.

If you already have a home business, perhaps you are facing the same thoughts. Don’t let the negative thoughts crowd out the life-changing success that a home business offers. Sure, we struggled at first, but after 20 months we were making $100,000 a year in lifetime residual income! When you find yourself facing bankruptcy and foreclosure as we were and then apply for food stamps you have a firm grasp on the tough times life can bring.

Occasionally, we’ll say “What If?” As in, what if we hadn’t stuck it out through the hard times? What if we had taken the advice of supposedly well meaning people who said that we would never have success in a home business?

What if it took you two to four years to become successful in a home business? What if you could make $100,000 without a boss and a job to go to? What if you could actually be home for your children and know them as people instead of looking at them as the little people who live in your house?

Most people who start a home business quit in their first 90 days and go back to their dreadful lives of desperation. Most people aren’t really living. They are only existing. They’re going from one day to the next without any hope of a better life.

Benjamin Franklin said “most people die at 18, we just don’t bury them until they turn 65+.”



2. Success doesn’t happen without work.

I talked to a woman who said she was interested in changing her life. When it was time for her to make a decision she asked me, “Do I have to do anything?” “No” I replied, “once a month we just back the money truck up to your house and unload!”

If you had a traditional business you’d have to open your business every day. If you have a job you’ve got to show up if you want to get paid. When you start a home business you can’t simply sign up and expect the money to start being deposited in your bank account. There’s work to be done.

Is it hard to become successful in a home business? Compared to giving all of the best years of your life to your employer and missing birthdays, anniversaries, your child’s first words, your child’s first steps and realizing that life is nearly over and in your golden years you don’t have the money to do the things you want to do, no it really isn’t that hard at all!

If you’re in a business like ours when you employ leverage, getting paid for other people’s efforts, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor so much more. Even if you have a home business where you do all the work it’s better than working for an employer.

We are convinced that to live a great life your home business must employ the leverage concept. It’s the only way you can have money and the time to enjoy it. The wealthiest people in America became wealthy by owning businesses. The businesses that created great wealth were out in front of a trend and the business owner got paid based on the efforts of thousands of people. We wouldn’t be enjoying the life we live today if we were getting paid only on our own efforts.

We worked really hard with very little success in our first year. Our 2nd year was the breakthrough that we were looking for, success was on the way. What we failed to realize was that during our first 12 months we were improving our skills and our confidence and that’s when success started to happen.

So, how much did we work in our first two years? We worked as much as it took. How much should you work your home business? That depends on a variety of factors. How bad do you want it? How fast do you want to achieve success? We recommend that you work your home business a minimum of 7 to 10 hours a week, and do it consistently for at least two years.

Success doesn’t happen without work and it isn’t limited to working your business. Are you committed to improving your skills and working on you? Read at least 10 pages from a great book every day. Books like “Think and Grow Rich” will change the way you think and when you change the way you think you will change your life.

Expecting success without work from your home business is like expecting a paycheck from a job that you never started. It just doesn’t make sense.

3. You must be disciplined to achieve success.

So, you’re working your new home business and a friend calls offering to take you to lunch. Can you afford to go? Your favorite show is on TV, but you know you need to be working your home business, what will you do? Perhaps the biggest adjustment most of us need to make is to be disciplined in our home business.

Let’s face it in a work environment there is usually supervision. Many people fail in a home business because there’s nobody looking over their shoulder to see that they do what they need to do.

Since most people who start a home business have never owned a business, we must learn to be disciplined, if we’re going to operate a successful home business. There were times when somebody told us no and that was devastating. We’d usually mope around and fail to do anything else the rest of the day. Had we maintained that attitude, we’d have a job right now instead of a successful home business!

Consider setting business hours. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but asking friends and family members to respect your business and your business hours is an important step to success. We’ve got a good friend who makes more than $100,000 a year and when you come over to his house during business hours you can visit with his wife, but he excuses himself and works his business. If you have a small child, work when he or she is napping and when they are in bed at night.

It’s also a good idea to have a permanent workspace, so you can shut the door, eliminate distractions and get your work done.

This is a difficult adjustment for some people to make, but your children can learn that when Mommy or Daddy is in this room with the door shut that they are working. You’d be amazed at how many children will respect your space and time if you ask them too. We’ve seen many successful, stay at home moms and dads work with children nearby. Don’t let screaming children or children that interrupt you on occasion become a big deal, the person on the other end of the phone may be convinced that your business is right for them BECAUSE they hear your children in the background.

When you promise to call somebody back at a certain time you’ve got to find the time. Children will appreciate knowing why Mommy or Daddy isn’t available at certain times and you can explain to them that it will be worth all the sacrifices once you become successful.

Discipline can be difficult with all the distractions that can occur in your home, but it is one ingredient that you must have to become successful.



4. Who you’re involved with is more important than the business you’re in.

Let’s face it, most people don’t really have a clue how to operate a business, any kind of business not just a home business. When we’re young we are told to go to school to get good grades so we can get a good… JOB! That’s exactly the path most of us start on, get a job, work hard, work long hours and try to get a promotion so we can work more hours and hopefully make more money.

We do that for 10, 20 or 30 years and then realize that we are never going to get ahead. That’s when the idea that a home business could change our life hits most of us. We’ve been told to be good employees and that’s what most of us have done all of our lives.

There is no substitute for leadership. If you are blessed to find somebody who has been successful in a home business and you know that they can sincerely help you change your life forever, you should jump at the chance to work with them. Make sure you’re comfortable with them before you get started. So, what should you look for? You should look for somebody that knows exactly what they are doing. When you ask questions are they comfortable or uncomfortable? Do they have a system that you can plug in to and have immediate success?

One of the reasons I failed in other home businesses is that I didn’t understand the importance of finding the right person to work with. I am not blaming my failures on somebody else, but if I had been associated with people who really knew what they were doing they would have given me guidance that I did not get. Perhaps I would have failed anyway, but there is no doubt that working with successful people will cut your learning curve and save you a lot of time and money. Only you can assure your success, but finding the right person to work with and then listening to that person gives you a tremendous advantage over most people working a business from their homes!

Let’s say you have what you think is a great idea and you’ve got a little extra money stashed away for a rainy day. Your spouse isn’t overly supportive, but he or she wants you to succeed. You decide to invest $1,000 or $2,000 in your new business by taking out an ad in a local magazine. You get no response at all. How do you think your spouse feels about your home business now? That kind of mistake destroys most people and they never recover.

Last week I received an email from a so-called marketing guru offering his services. I could get his marketing expertise if I paid him almost $800. Almost everything he offered we give to our team members for FREE! We know that what we’re doing works for our business because it has been tested and proven to be successful or we wouldn’t do it. His material, although similar to ours, hasn’t been tested in our business and could prove to be a waste of both time and money. What would happen if you sent that $800 and it didn’t work? How supportive would your spouse be then?

5. Technology has changed everything.

Many years ago you had to get out and meet people and most businesses was, done face to face. You could call people around the country, but if they had any interest in your business you had to send a package overnight. That proved to be very expensive.

When we were broke, I thought everybody that sounded serious, was serious. I was sending out packages several times a week only to find that these people weren’t serious at all.

Then, the internet changed everything. You don’t have to meet people face to face anymore, although I must admit it’s still my favorite way of doing business. Today, you can upload a video in seconds, so people can see you. You can send an email with links to websites, videos, and your contact information. Autoresponders make you look like a Fortune 500 company, and nobody knows how big your business really is because anybody anywhere can have a great looking website.

When I started my business more than 10 years ago my long distance phone bill was nearly $1,000 a month, today we can call as much as we want for $20! You can use conference calling and webcasts to present your business to hundreds of people at a time.

People can automatically receive your latest Podcast and watch it on the subway or at lunch. This is the information age and you should capitalize on the shift in technology in your home business. Don’t worry about all the latest gadgets when you start your business because the personal touch will always be important. Even if you don’t have a lot of money technology allows your home business to operate and look like a very big business.

Don’t get too preoccupied with technology. You can, however, use it to enhance your image and your productivity if you know what you are doing. Today, we don’t mail anybody any information regarding our home business. With internet access almost everywhere, we realize that if somebody needs us to mail them something, they probably aren’t the person we were looking for.



6. It’s a home business, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a big business.

Most people that start a home business are looking for an extra $300 to $500 a month. What would an extra $50,000 or $100,000 a year do for you and your family, seriously! Maybe it’s because so many of us have failed so many times that we just don’t believe in ourselves anymore.

Once you understand the basic fundamentals of your new home business and once you’ve achieved some success, you’ll understand that the sky is the limit. We make much more money than we ever thought possible and we have friends that are making more than $1,000,000 a year! Hard to believe? Of course, it is! Just because it’s hard to believe doesn’t mean that it isn’t happening.

After we struggled with so many other businesses I wanted to believe that we could become incredibly successful, but my past was holding me back. Today, we operate a home business that generates almost $10,000,000 in annual sales! Years ago I never knew anybody that made $1,000,000 a year, so it was hard for me to “see” myself ever reaching that milestone. When a good friend of mine did it, I could then start to see that I could have that kind of success.

So, do you really want to struggle all your life? Then why do we settle for mediocrity? Here’s why, we’re unsure of ourselves, stuck in a rut, scared, we lack confidence, we tried and failed and tried and failed, what will my spouse, mother, brother, best friend think? We care too much about what other people say, think and do!

7. As a Man Thinketh…

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Joyce Meyer is fond of saying that where the mind goes, the man follows. Of course, it makes no difference whether you are a man or a woman, you are what you think you are. As we struggled in our home business it was easy to become discouraged. We had always failed. Those constant thoughts of failure surrounded us.

Then, we realized that others had succeeded. Why did they succeed where so many others had failed? Could it really be that the only reason they achieved success was that they thought differently? We were so broke and so desperate for a breakthrough in our lives that we realized that we could not afford the luxury of having negative thoughts. There were plenty of other negative people that we could have listened to, but what was that going to get us?

What if we listened to the people that were positive, which by the way were the same people who were achieving success? When we started our home business we felt like the biggest loser on the planet. If something positive didn’t happen soon we were going to have to move out of state to live with Judith’s mother. How were we going to explain to our children that we had lost our home? If our home business was going to change, we would have to change first.

We couldn’t afford the luxury of one negative thought. We started making good choices. We would distance ourselves from anybody that had anything negative to say about anything! We would surround ourselves with positive, uplifting people who would speak life into our lives.

We didn’t listen to people who laughed at us and yes, there really were people who laughed at us. We believed that we would have life-changing success even before there were any real signs of success. Some people call that the “fake it till you make it” concept. While we wholeheartedly endorse that concept we do not recommend that you mislead people.

There is nothing wrong with having a positive attitude. It is wrong to misrepresent your current financial situation. One of the most disappointing things we encounter in home business is the tendency that people have to inflate their incomes. There must be some school of thought that this is appealing or O.K. and it is not.

Once you lose your integrity, you can never get it back. We have done everything we can to make it clear that a home business will not typically solve your financial pressures overnight. We know many people that have made $500 to $2,000 in their first month in a home business. Very few make more than that in their first 30 days. If you think you have to lie to become successful you are wrong. We made just over $300 our first month in the home business that has paid us more money than we ever thought possible.

Negative people tried to convince us that we would never have success. We didn’t listen to them then, and we don’t listen to negative people now. We know that you can have success in a home business. We know that it won’t be easy. We know that if you get guidance along the way from successful people that you will live an extraordinary life.

The Diderot Effect

The Diderot Effect: Why We Want Things We Don’t Need

— And What to Do About It

 
Denis Diderot as depicted by Louis-Michel van Loo in 1767. In this painting Diderot is wearing a robe similar to the one that prompted his famous essay on the Diderot Effect.

The famous French philosopher Denis Diderot lived nearly his entire life in poverty, but that all changed in 1765.

Diderot was 52 years old and his daughter was about to be married, but he could not afford to provide a dowry. Despite his lack of wealth, Diderot’s name was well-known because he was the co-founder and writer of Encyclopédie, one of the most comprehensive encyclopedias of the time.

When Catherine the Great, the emperor of Russia, heard of Diderot’s financial troubles she offered to buy his library from him for £1000 GBP, which is approximately $50,000 USD in 2015 dollars. Suddenly, Diderot had money to spare.

Shortly after this lucky sale, Diderot acquired a new scarlet robe. That’s when everything went wrong.


Is there anything Diderot Effect has in common with home biz online?

Of course it has. When you join any kind of business you’ll find that you need not only website link to promote, but also landing pages, autoresponder, tracking software, front end and back end offer etc.

Read at the end of this post perfect solution to this – that is done for you..


The Diderot Effect

Diderot’s scarlet robe was beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that he immediately noticed how out of place it seemed when surrounded by the rest of his common possessions. In his words, there was “no more coordination, no more unity, no more beauty” between his robe and the rest of his items. The philosopher soon felt the urge to buy some new things to match the beauty of his robe.

He replaced his old rug with a new one from Damascus. He decorated his home with beautiful sculptures and a better kitchen table. He bought a new mirror to place above the mantle and his “straw chair was relegated to the antechamber by a leather chair.”

These reactive purchases have become known as the Diderot Effect.

The Diderot Effect states that obtaining a new possession often creates a spiral of consumption which leads you to acquire more new things. As a result, we end up buying things that our previous selves never needed to feel happy or fulfilled.

Why We Want Things We Don’t Need

Like many others, I have fallen victim to the Diderot Effect (says James Clear, writer, personal growth). I recently bought a new car and I ended up purchasing all sorts of additional things to go inside it. I bought a tire pressure gauge, a car charger for my cell phone, an extra umbrella, a first aid kit, a pocket knife, a flashlight, emergency blankets, and even a seat belt cutting tool.

Allow me to point out that I owned my previous car for nearly 10 years and at no point did I feel that any of the previously mentioned items were worth purchasing. And yet, after getting my shiny new car, I found myself falling into the same consumption spiral as Diderot.

You can spot similar behaviors in many other areas of life:

  • You buy a new dress and now you have to get shoes and earrings to match.
  • You buy a CrossFit membership and soon you’re paying for foam rollers, knee sleeves, wrist wraps, and paleo meal plans.
  • You buy your kid an American Girl doll and find yourself purchasing more accessories than you ever knew existed for dolls.
  • You buy a new couch and suddenly you’re questioning the layout of your entire living room. Those chairs? That coffee table? That rug? They all gotta go.

Life has a natural tendency to become filled with more. We are rarely lookingto downgrade, to simplify, to eliminate, to reduce. Our natural inclination is always to accumulate, to add, to upgrade, and to build upon.

In the words of sociology professor Juliet Schor, “the pressure to upgrade our stock of stuff is relentlessly unidirectional, always ascending.”

Mastering the Diderot Effect

The Diderot Effect tells us that your life is only going to have more things fighting to get in it, so you need to to understand how to curate, eliminate, and focus on the things that matter.

Reduce exposure. Nearly every habit is initiated by a trigger or cue. One of the quickest ways to reduce the power of the Diderot Effect is to avoid the habit triggers that cause it in the first place. Unsubscribe from commercial emails. Call the magazines that send you catalogs and opt out of their mailings. Meet friends at the park rather than the mall. Block your favorite shopping websites using tools like Freedom.

Buy items that fit your current system. You don’t have to start from scratch each time you buy something new. When you purchase new clothes, look for items that work well with your current wardrobe. When you upgrade to new electronics, get things that play nicely with your current pieces so you can avoid buying new chargers, adapters, or cables.

Set self-imposed limits. Live a carefully constrained life by creating limitations for you to operate within.

Buy One, Give One. Each time you make a new purchase, give something away. Get a new TV? Give your old one away rather than moving it to another room. The idea is to prevent your number of items from growing. Always be curating your life to include only the things that bring you joy and happiness.

Go one month without buying something new. Don’t allow yourself to buy any new items for one month. Instead of buying a new lawn mower, rent one from a neighbor. Get your new shirt from the thrift store rather than the department store. The more we restrict ourselves, the more resourceful we become.

Let go of wanting things. There will never be a level where you will be done wanting things. There is always something to upgrade to. Get a new Honda? You can upgrade to a Mercedes. Get a new Mercedes? You can upgrade to a Bentley. Get a new Bentley? You can upgrade to a Ferrari. Get a new Ferrari? Have you thought about buying a private plane? Realize that wanting is just an option your mind provides, not an order you have to follow.

Short-cut to success is possible.

We can see a lot of examples of shortcuts in real life (like on the picture above). It’s natural for people to try save time and energy.Sometimes shortcuts are the smart way to beat the competition.

= Short-cut your path to online success =

Some people think that there is no such a thing as short-cut. Let see what thinks Jeff Goins

” Really? There are no shortcuts in life? Only the hardest working people in the world win? It’s a popular belief, which should be reason enough to question its validity.

But let’s explore this idea.

Let’s say there are no shortcuts and everyone is as successful as they absolutely deserve to be. Does that mean Bill Gates, who makes about $11 billion per year (or $1.3 million per hour!) works 54,000 times harder than the average American worker who earns $50,000 per year? How is that even possible?

Look. We all want to believe hard work pays off. And it does. But at a certain point, you can’t work any harder. You have no more time than anyone else. So what do you do? You have to learn how to work smarter.

And that means learning from someone who’s already been there.

You need a guide.

For years as a writer, I struggled to get noticed. I blogged and nobody cared,

tried to write books no one would read, and failed to motivate myself to work.

I wanted a publisher but didn’t know anyone in the industry and didn’t have

any readers to show for my work. I was stuck.

What I needed was someone to show me another path. It didn’t have to be a shortcut. I was just tired of the long road to success — because it was leading nowhere — desperately wanted to know what was missing.

In any great story, there is a point in the journey when the hero meets an obstacle he cannot overcome. This is the moment when the guide arrives. This is the essence of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey: you cannot succeed without someone wiser to show you the way. Frodo needed Gandalf. Luke needed Obi-wan. And you and I need a mentor.

Sure enough, in my own journey, that’s what happened. I met a handful of people who acted as guides in helping me become an author, speaker, and entrepreneur. My dream became a reality within a matter of 18 months. But this wasn’t because I hustled — it’s because I found a guide.”

“ I didn’t succeed because I hustled any harder. I succeeded because I found a guide.”

Or, do you FINALLY feel like you’ve got things figured out, and as you are about

to move forward on your dreams…

You get ANOTHER email… from ANOTHER guru… telling you about the NEW shiny object of the day…

They never give you a real value. Your own website

– I mean a m-o-n-e-y making website.

And your plans… that you felt SO confident about just minutes earlier… fall to the ground

as you reluctantly turn your back on your “plan” and start moving towards the next new thing…
