When you are just getting started in the home based business industry, there seems to be a lot you must learn. From getting things set up, getting educated on your products, and to learning a new system, it can feel overwhelming before you even begin. The good news is however, you don’t have to learn everything all at once, in order to start building your business.
Even so, for some reason, most individuals believe they must “know-it-all”, prior to even reaching out to their first prospect. Big mistake…
Why that is a mistake is because, you are never going to know everything. Plus, what works for some, does not work for all. The best way to assure success is to just get started. We all learn as we go. When something we try doesn’t work, we fix it or do something else.
Have you been looking for a way to earn money online without recruiting other people?
Are you seeking a way to get paid from your efforts without feeling pushy?
Before you search any further, you must decide one of two things…
1. If you want a JOB that you can work from home, or
2. If you want a Home Based Business where recruiting is not required to earn a generous income.
Having a work at home job will give you a little more flexibility than a traditional job, however, your time is still not your own. If you are okay with having a set schedule and working for a boss, click here for more information and resources to get started.
Why A Home Based Business
You may be one of the many, many individuals looking to discover a way to increase your income. Or, you may be a parent feeling the emotional burden of having to choose between work and family. Maybe you can simply relate to the fact that you are not living to your fullest potential, or walking in your purpose.
Whatever your situation is, you know there is something more.
You are tired of struggling.
You are sick of stressing.
You are ready to live the life you deserve.
You have kept your options open, and have decided to explore the idea of a home based business. I can remember being in this exact same space, and making my decision to say YES, to creating a new life for myself and my family.
When some people hear the words, Network Marketing, they automatically get a bad idea in their mind. Most of the time it is because they are greatly missed informed, or have heard negative stories from those who’ve had little, or no success.
The truth is, starting a network marketing business has great benefits, especially because it doesn’t require a college education or tons of experience.
In fact, I came across an interview by, Jack Canfield (affectionately known as “America’s #1 Success Coach,” and the originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series.)
In the video, He shares his views on the value of the industry as a whole.
Have you noticed how more and more women are starting home based businesses?
Even in my own network circle, I’ve seen a shift in the number of moms who have decided to go full-time, working from home in 2014 alone.
To be honest, I love it!
It made me want to do a little research just to see for myself, how much the industry is growing.
Here is what I discovered…
- According to the Direct Selling Association, in 2013, the direct selling sales force increased 5.7% to 16.8 million in 2013, a record high. Get this, even during the height of the recession, the home based industry experienced a surge of new direct selling independent representatives.
If you are an aspiring mom entrepreneur, I’m sure you will relate to this post.
Most entrepreneurs run into challenges when starting a business, but moms have a completely different set of challenges the average entrepreneur may not experience.
It doesn’t matter if you are married or single…adding entrepreneurship to the mix of motherhood is downright overwhelming for many moms.
This is something I know firsthand being a work at home mom of seven – six still at home.
- If you have infants or toddlers, there is no such thing as, “sticking to a schedule.” They demand your time around the clock. The trick is figuring out how to occupy their time so you can fit tasks in, in between.
Some people start a home based network marketing business and choose the slow and steady path. Yet others dive in and go hard and fast…which is better?
Well, in my opinion it’s a matter of preference.
I’ve been on both sides of the fence and can say, in my experience, slow and steady will win the race…eventually. But the question is, why wait?
Most people I talk to who are ready to start in network marketing want to start making money quickly. However, the majority of them start pretty slow.
Why is that?
Perhaps they lack the confidence to go full force.
Maybe they aren’t ready because they haven’t been trained.
The 4th of July always makes me reflect on what this holiday truly means and how it relates to us as entrepreneurs and small business owners. The same way our country declared independence on this day in 1776…you too, can claim your financial freedom as an independent business owner!
We are an elite group of freedom creators and dream chasers. The decision to become an entrepreneur seems natural to us because it’s who we are. I believe those of us who passionately pursue entrepreneurship, do so because it is our life purpose, to impact the world in an amazing way!
Though the journey is not always easy and requires a lot of focus, determination and commitment, the rewards of achieving financial freedom and independence are absolutely PRICELESS.
Many individuals looking to start a home based business often choose a Network Marketing company because it offers average people, an affordable way to go into business without requiring any experience or formal educational, unlike a traditional business.
There are many companies that offer independent representatives or distributors, the opportunity to earn commissions on products and services they sell. These direct sales companies such as; Mary Kay, TLC or Melaleuca, offer women a way to be able to earn a part time or full time income, from home in their spare time.
You’ve heard it before, Network Marketing, Direct Sales, MLM, Opportunity…Scam, Pyramid Scheme. Just a few common names used to define a home based business opportunity by individuals and skeptics alike.
There happens to be a great misconception surrounding the Network Marketing industry. Primarily due to lack of understanding, or even pure ignorance. However, despite what you may have heard, Network Marketing is in fact, a legitimate home based business model.
The MLM Scam…
Now, don’t get me wrong, there are some companies out there passing themselves off as reputable which gives the other solid companies, a bad reputation. The easiest way to recognize a true pyramid scheme is not based on the triangular structure, but if there is an actual product or service being sold.
