do's and don'ts of a home based businessIf you’re one of the millions of entrepreneur minded individuals in this world looking for a home based business, I have some advice to give you that you’ll want to listen to.

So before you say ‘Yes’ to joining just any business, read on!

The Do’s and Don’ts of Starting and Succeeding in a Home Based Business

Here we go….

The Don’ts

  1. Avoid people who want to pay you money to join their business. Chances are, they’re desperate, and that is probably why they’re offering incentives. Don’t do it.
  2. Will Pay you to Join

  3. Avoid the Shiny Object Syndrome. Look, there’s always going to be a new business coming out, a new launch or prelaunch around the corner. If you’ve already chosen your opportunity, stick with it! You saw the vision when you got started, now stay the course man! Keep your eyes on the goal and don’t get distracted by the beautiful shiny objects. Don’t be the bug who is compelled to fly into the bug zapper the moment it turns on. Know better!

    Success in the home business industry is not a game of Leap Frog. Hopping from one business to the next will get you stuck in startup mode.

  4. Do not listen to people who have not had results themselves. There will be many who will be willing to tell you that you can’t do it, that you should just get a job or that ‘those things are all scams!’ They say that because they didn’t make any money. Well, they’re not you! When you’ve chosen your opportunity, mastermind with leaders…leaders who are making money. Associate with those who are getting the results you’d like to get.

The Do’s

  1. Get ALL IN! Meaning, purchase ALL of the products. Sometimes, in your own mind, it might make more sense to purchase the minimum and to use the business revenue to buy all the products. Don’t do it, because it won’t happen. Maybe once, in a million instances, has that ever worked. You might be thinking right now, “I’m the exception to the rule. Those stats don’t apply to me!” Believe me now, in six months, you can tell me I was right because you’ll be out of business or making pennies.
  2. Get All IN Mentally. This one should really come before getting ‘All In’ with the products, because being ‘All In’ is a mental state. Naturally, if you’re ‘All In’ you are committed. And someone who is truly committed to their home business, will find a way to purchase all of the products.

    Tip: It’s difficult to be committed, completely ‘All In’ when you’re part of more than one home business. So choose one, and work it!

  3. Get Plugged In. You didn’t only join an opportunity, you joined a team. Most likely, your team, or their upline, will have team tools and training you can learn from. Attend your team hangouts, webinars, calls and anything else they put together that can help you. Stay up to date on company news and announcements. And then turn around and get those you sign up plugged in.
  4. Promote, Promote, Promote. Placing a few ads on Craigslist isn’t going to cut it. You must become one of two things: A master socializer or a master of marketing…or both! Utilize technology to save you time and money in your marketing efforts. Record videos so that people can see you and relate to you. Avoid “Lead Poverty” at all costs. A home business is dead in the water without leads, or prospects.
  5. Stay Consistent. Your greatest success will come by doing income producing activities over an extended period of time. Not just here or there, but every day! Form good habits in the beginning. Find what works, and stick with it.
