We all come into our home businesses with high expectations. But most of the time we don't get started on the right foot. We flounder around and try to do a few things here and there but it usually doesn't come together right away. It's like we're waiting on someone to tell us what to do. But deep down we know that we have to figure out at least some of this stuff on our own.
This article will serve as an outline to help you synergize your efforts with your expectations.
Be positive but get right down to business - This business has been and will always be a people business. But you have to get out of your own way. You should never come off as desperate to sign someone up even if you really need the money. If you do, you will attract the wrong types of people and they will drop off quicker than you could imagine.
Envision the end result - Ask yourself, "Where do I want to be when all is said and done?" That question gives you a WHY behind what you're doing. If your why is strong enough you will be willing to endure anything to get there. My why is being able to spend time with my family and only work 20 hours a week. That's strong enough for me to learn how to use systems and leverage to build my business so I don't have to work as much. What's yours?
Keep your priorities in line - Find out what works and spend time doing that. If you're not getting the maximum efficiency out of your time you will end up wasting it. At the same time, make sure you make time for the necessities of life. It doesn't make sense to spend 12 hours a day in front of your computer. Get out and get some fresh air. And some fresh ideas.
Find a solution that works for everybody - Too many home business owners are only looking for money. Well guess what? If you don't help anybody or you try to be "slick" you not only won't make any money, but people will find out about it and avoid you altogether. Not a pretty situation for a business owner who works with the public. Give as much as you can to as many as you can and you will paid handsomely.
Try to understand people. Don't expect them to understand you - This is critical. The more you understand people the better they will react to you. For example, let's say you were having trouble using social media in a way that gets people to know, like, and trust you. If I knew that you had this problem and I helped you solve it would you like me? I would like to think so.
Put all this stuff together - Although I make it sound easy in this article, if you're just starting out it may not be. But if you take all these things into consideration and start making a list of what you think you should be doing with this information, you will be leaps and bounds ahead of the other people who read this but didn't do anything with it.
Get SHARP - The only way to learn anything is to actually experience it. Are you going to make some mistakes? Sure you are. Get up, dust yourself off, and keep going. The more you do this, the sharper you'll get. Then, you'll be able to help the next person the same way I'm helping you by reading this article.
So those are the habits of the seven-figure earners in this industry. I don't even want to make seven figures in this industry. All I want is enough to provide a reasonable lifestyle for my family. Chances are you want the same exact thing. Use this information to your benefit and you will begin to walk the path that you knew was always there for you.
