Hi and welcome,
When looking at starting a work at home business, Careful consideration should be given to these four key ingredients: (1) Goals (2) Motivation (3) Devotion of time
(4) Ongoing costs.
Before you make any choice on what work at home business you will go with, first you will need to set out some basic goals you wish to achieve.
You want a clear vision/reason for what you wish to accomplish with your work at home business. This can be broken down to:
(A) immediate and short term goals and what you wish to achieve in say the first few years. Being your (B) long term goals.
From there you want to write down some ideas (motivating ideas/factors that will help you achieve this. Write these in some kind of journal. Titled perhaps MY GOALS.
As an example I would imagine working from home full time would be one! The possibility of financial freedom would be another, A better prosperous life for you and your family etc.
Refer to your journal “MY GOALS” at least once a week, so you can add or revise on your short term goals and get an idea of your overall progress.
# 2 MOTIVATION:
often people start there work at home business with a hiss and a roar driven by the unknown and the hype that surrounds there new work at home opportunity, after the excitement starts to wear off and the reality of “YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A BUSINESS” you need to nurture sets in, what will be left to drive you? This is where setting your goals will give you a massive boost allowing you a vision to work towards, giving you another key ingredient: MOTIVATION!
Having motivation is crucial to your development and the real possibility of success. The importance is you understand if you are to succeed YOU must be able to motivate yourself with your own call to action!
# 3 Devotion of Time:
The amount of time you are willing to spend on your business is another vital component in your possibility of success.
The cold hard facts are you must devote as much time to your work at home business you can possibly find,if you wish to achieve leaving your day job and working from the comforts of home. Or perhaps living the life you only dream of at present.
The reality is the more time you devote, learning the in’s and out’s of your work at home business applying that knowledge the more your work at home business will prosper and grow! YOU JUST CANT BEAT dedication and that comes from the above and the devotion of time. Honestly if you are hungry enough to succeed you will find the time to devote, “Remember No Pain No Gain”
# 4 ONGOING COSTS:
Having a work at home business is NOT FREE! One way or another there is both initial setup costs and ongoing costs! How much will depend on the work at home opportunity you will choose.
If you want your own website and you wish for someone to design this for you, then that will be your first cost, it will also cost you to register your domain name (website name) Hosting for your new website online will be another one. And having an auto responder to automate, your work at home business.
The cost of these services vary on who you choose to go with. And payment options/plans are available.
Then there is the varied products available to you for development of your work at home business. And additional services you may opt into, along the way.
And finally a really Important financial cost A NECESSITY!: The cost to advertise, there are many free advertising methods available, but to be honest if you are looking at making good money as soon as possible, You will need at least good traffic volume to help you convert that into sales, paid advertising would be advisable if your new to the work at home business scene.
The whole Advertising buzz can be broken down to this.
No Advertising No exposure! No exposure No Traffic! No Traffic No Sales and finally No Sales NO Money! It’s that simple.
Starting a work at home business can be quite daunting, but the reality is if you stick at it following the above as a basis then you will have a great basis to start on and the real opportunity to succeed.
A work at home business should be treated in the same approach as any business!
If you really want to achieve then you MUST do what it takes to make it the kind of business you can be proud of and the kind of business that bears the fruits of your labour. Simply put what you put in is what you get out!
Thanks for your time.
