Home Biz Entrepreneurs – You Gotta Run

If you are in business at home, whether or not you also have a day job and the usual personal and family obligations, you have to learn how to say that you gotta run! That is because you likely do not have a lot of time on your hands to spare to small talk and chattering.

keep in touch!

Be polite to everyone of course, and even spend some time ‘networking’ when it is a peer or prospective customer you are communicating with. Make arrangements to meet again or whatever is applicable. Make a note to follow-up because there is nothing more shallow than saying you will do something that you don’t do, particularly if someone might be waiting for you to do what you promised.

A built-in escape hatch would be to say something to the effect that if they don’t hear from you by a certain time, to feel free to contact you instead. This really has a nice touch in mor

Developing a Real Home Business – What is Holding You Back?

You may be a creative type with a million ideas all the time. However they rarely get past the idea stage. It could be ‘information overload’ or too much information that keeps you from selecting one idea and running with it. This may be just as bad as not having any ideas or being logical.

get started already

One way to get out of that maze may be to make a list of the ideas that come to mind. Don’t get hung up on the list – just do a ‘brainstorming’ type of list where you write down the ideas as they come. This list is likely very unrefined and should have some space after each idea where you can go back and define what you mean.

Then at a later time you can take ones that you have been able to define which would indicate you have given them some thought. Decide from that ‘top’ list which ideas would be most feasible. Break everything down as far as

Your Internet Business Can Be Like a School

People might be very surprised if they found out how much is really available online. For example community colleges have free or very inexpensive courses that can be done completely online. Even various certificates of achievement can be earned in this way.

get it!
So at that price you can take something you are curious about or interested in that really hasn’t got much of a chance of helping your career. Just for fun. Along the way you may change your mind and it could possibly turn into something that would be a career.

Naturally it makes the most sense to find something that might even help you get a promotion or to elevate your skill level so you would qualify for a better job – or even to enhance your technical skills so that you may take more control of your home business. For example it would be so helpful if you had more of a handle on basic HTML so that you we

Building a New Business – Don’t Ever Lose Your Faith

It is important that you have faith and you keep it in tact no matter what happens. Having faith, like praying or wishing for something, does not guarantee anything. You may or may not receive what you need and want. Yet it shouldn’t have any effect on your level of faith. If you keep it in general, just having a positive mindset about everything, then you can’t lose.

Keep the Faith!,

It is a lot like the opposite meaning of the expression that ‘you can’t fail unless you quit’. Think about it. As long as you are still trying, nobody can say you quit. You don’t need to feel that you failed. Remember we are all individuals and different. We each learn in our own way and take as much time as we need.

The harder you try the more momentum you have, because while you are trying you are actually learning and practicing and someday you will actually achieve your goal

Add Value to Your Existing Products

One way to garner some extra attention to your portfolio of services and products that you include for your customers is to add extra functions from time to time. Spruce them up so as to create a little excitement and give your members something new to promote to their downlines.

add value

If nothing creative comes to mind when you are determining what little extras you might include, you can also look at volume or cost as a way to enhance the value. For example if their membership includes 5 ads a month, or they are paying fees to send out 5 ads a month, create a ‘special’ where they get it cheaper or they get a few free ads included.

There are many little widgets and gadgets that really wouldn’t cost much but which would go a long way to make your offerings more exciting. Lots of times the problem is people are ‘asleep at the wheel’. They recrui
