I AM AFRAID I WILL FAIL – WHAT SHOULD I DO?It is normal, and even wise, to feel some nervousness about starting any new venture. We have three suggestions to start with:1) Provide as much of a financial cushion for yourself as you can, before you begin. Any new business takes time to get started and begin to become financially viable. In fact, you may wish to start your home based business in your spare time while continuing to work at your “day job” for a while. You may wish to view it as a “hobby” for a while – until you gain the confidence to step out full time into a work from home business.2) Connect yourself with others who have already gone through what you are goingthrough now and come out on the other side.3) Get as much training as you can in the mechanics of using the internet and findingyour way through such obstacles as taxes, government regulations, legal issues and so on. The more you know about these things – or better yet the more you know about how to LOOK THEM UP the less fearful these things will be.The most basic internet search will lead you to sites and links which will give you step-by-step instructions for putting your home based business idea into effect. If you have a little start up money (and you should expect to need some) you can find, for a small fee, someone to design a web page for you or furnish you with all the forms you may need for administering your business in a professional way. Don’t forget – the idea is for you to make maximum use of your PERSONAL skills and interests. You don’t need to feel that you have to start out knowing EVERYTHING – no one does. But once you get in contact with others who have done this you will realize that if they can do it, you can.One thing that many beginners neglect in their eagerness to get started is proper preparation in the form of a solid business plan. Again, a quick search on the internet will lead you to ways to find good templates for business plans that you can use to plug in your particular information. This will not only be an invaluable asset in promoting your business but will serve to focus you on exactly what you want your business to be and to do. A good business is neither too narrow in focus (limiting your possibilities) or too wide (not having clear goals.) It is difficult to present to others exactly what you do if you do not have a clear idea yourself. Sometimes in writing a business plan a person realizes that want they truly want is something slightly different from what they originally envisioned. That’s good! Look for a good business plan design and then shape it to fit your ideas.People sometimes become discouraged early because they had too high an expectation of sitting back and watching the money roll in. You will see ads on TV which encourage this kind of expectation. Ignore them. Realize from the beginning that any business takes hard work and some disappointments before it gets off the ground. But isn’t that the case with a salaried job also? At least your hard work is going for something you are building for YOURSELF, not for someone else. And your early disappointments will give you valuable experience instead of knocking you down a step on the corporate ladder.Don’t forget, the internet – and the use of it – is the one thing that will DEFINITELY grow in the future. Remind yourself, too, that those thousands of people out there working at their own businesses cannot all be geniuses and you don’t have to be either!In part two we will explore the government, non-profit and paid services that can help you shed the fear you have about starting your home business.

My first experience of using visualiation successfully was when I was employed. It was not something I had read much about, nor consciously practised. It happened quite by chance, and it was only many years later that I realised what had happened.I was on a week long management training course, surrounded by some very bright, mostly younger, sparks. On about the third day, we were given an exercise to do. It was an individual exercise; each one of us had to think about, and then write down, what would be our perfect day in 5 years’ time.What all this had to do with management training I was not sure. In fact, I’m still not sure to this day. But, it was something I was quite happy to do. I have a strong imagination, and this was an “easy” exercise to do. We had an hour, so no rush; I just let my mind flow. It was quiet, as everyone else was doing the same.I sketched out honestly my perfect day. I was living near the sea, and had control over my own life. I was not employed, I was self employed. Goodbye career; that was not given one second of the perfect day. It was quite a relaxing sort of day, but I was working at home. I stopped when I wanted and strolled around for some exercise and air. My beloved sea was always in sight.What shocked me about that exercise was, that when I read back what I had written, it bore no resemblance to my life at the time I did the exercise. My life 5 years ahead, on my perfect day, was transformed.It was only some time after what I wrote down became a reality, about 5 years later, that I realized the possible significance of that exercise. In that short time of concentration, had I given enough instruction to my subconscious to ensure that I would go on and achieve that perfect day? I cannot know for sure, but I have no need to. It is enough that it happened.By all means, try that exercise for yourself. Give your mind the freedom, and do not allow anyone else to read what you have written.If you believe that what happened to me then was not pure chance, and you have a home business you want to succeed in, why not apply similar visualization techniques to your business? There is no need to follow a specific formula, you can adapt to your own needs. Try the following:1. Find a quiet place and time to think in broad terms about how you would want your business to turn out. Once you have a clear vision, write it down. Visualise it as you write it down. See yourself as you would hope to be when the business is a big success.2. Think of the major barriers to your success, and write them down. Then, for each of those barriers, visualize how you would ideally break down those barriers.3. Think of the new skills you need to acquire to aid your success. Write them down, and visualise yourself as being in command of those skills.Once you have completed your list, hopefully you will have 6 – 8 items. Now read through again, and rewrite them until they are worded as positive statements. Uncertainties, like “I may”, should be avoided. For example, instead of “I may be good at using a word processor” write “I am good at using a word processor.” There is a certainty about that, which you want your mind to get used to.When you are happy with your list, get into a routine of going through it very day. Early morning, lunch time, and evening before bed, are good times. Read the list to yourself, visualise for each item one at a time, and repeat up to ten times, more if you have the time. Concentrate as hard as you can with the visualization, it is like you are drilling deeper into your subconscious.Since I moved to Palawan in the Philippines, I have come to think of visualisation as like going for a walk in the jungle. If it is unfamiliar territory to you, somebody will usually walk ahead, hacking down any obstructive plants and tree branches. They are clearing the way to make it easy for you. If you do that every day, the path becomes well trodden, and eventually you can just stroll through with ease without anyone clearing the path ahead for you.Visualisation can be used to clear the path to the future you desire, and any detailed aspects of that future. Each time you practice the visualisation as I have described above, you are making it that much easier for yourself to walk that path to success in the future.

For example, stay-at-home mothers could team up. Think about who you want to work from home with. You have to think about if their personalities mesh with you. Do you have similar work ethics?

One of the major issues with having your own home-based business is distractions. It’s easy to abandon work when the television is just down the hall (or in the same room), or the laundry is calling your name.Ultimately YOU are responsible for your success or failure, and the household duties and the freedom to postpone work can sometimes be too enticing to pass up. To have a successful business, one must exert control. Control over surroundings. Control over time. It is important to stay focused on your business and not what’s on the TV. Here are a few ways to help minimize the distractions.* Location, Location, Location. Set up your office area as far away from high-traffic areas as you can. Avoid kitchens, living rooms, near the front door, etc. The best solution is to have a room solely for your office. However, that’s not always feasible.* When space is an issue, set up your area in a corner of a room, and keep potential distractions out of view, or you will soon be focusing on them instead. Try to create a barrier from the rest of the room, which produces visual and psychological separation.* Organization, Organization, Organization. This will really make or break some people. For starters, only keep things in the area that are of use for your business. Sparse decorations are okay, but keep the guitar out. Second, keeping supplies organized and well-placed eliminates many future headaches.* For those with stacks of papers floating around, filing cabinets and trash cans do wonders for eradicating messes. Also, keep often-used supplies close at hand, whereas rarely touched items need to be put out of the way. To save space, consider placing the phone on the wall.* Plan, Plan, Plan. It’s best to have a clear idea of what needs to get done. Some people arrive at their desk, and kind of meander their way through the day without any focus. That wastes time that you don’t have.* For maximum profits and efficiency, write down all the tasks ahead of you. You might want to split them into two lists: priorities and projects. List the most important tasks first, and work your way down. Every evening pick which tasks need to get done the next day. Work on the priorities first, and if there’s extra time, tackle a project.* These lists are not set in stone. Emergencies do come up, but knowing what is ahead of you helps you stay focused. Also, crossing off completed tasks creates a great sense of accomplishment, and gives you something to look forward to.These three easy steps will help you eliminate distractions and propel your business into greater prosperity, but old habits die hard. Commit yourself to making the most of your office and your time, and your productivity and confidence will go up, while your amount of stress goes down. An organized office and a good plan of attack will keep you focused and sane.
As home business owners we are often looking for ways to cut down our operating costs and business expenses. Here are a few to consider:1) Freebies- Those of you who know me a little would know that I’m a “Free-ak”. There are a lot of free, high quality resources available on the Internet; try looking for those before buying and you’ll be amazed of what you can find online for free.2) Bartering- Another great way of cutting down costs. Try trading your products or services with other home business owners before you buy. You can usually barter for little or no money.3) Borrowing/Renting- Yes, it feels great to show off that In-focus projector, but do you really need to buy it for your one time presentation?4) Networking- This is one of my favorites; browse through your book of contacts, talk to other home-based business owners, to your neighbors, to your children’s friends moms, you never know who knows somebody, who knows somebody…that has what you need and you can get it cheaper!5) Auctions- Try bidding on items before paying retail for them. You can find auctions offline and online (eBay).6) Plan ahead and buy in bulk- Make a list of those items you use most and how often you need to refill them, wait for a bargain and buy in bulk!7) Search for high quality used items- there are things that you just don’t have to buy new, check out flea markets and yard sales and if you can, negotiate!So, there you have it, a few ways to cut down your costs, now you can put your money where you really need it.
Did you know the one thing that holds most people back is the simple fact that they think too small? What separates the average business owner from the super successful isn’t her timing or her resources. It’s her ability to think bigger than others, and take action on the things that will create the biggest successes.Take for instance the typical small business owner in your area. Go into any local shop and ask them how many customers they have from out of state. Chances are it’s a very small percentage of their business. Yet with the power of the Internet, any local business – selling products or services – can change her business model from being a small local provider, to a small business with huge profits and paying clients around the world.And it’s easier than you think. I know; I’ve done it myself.I was one of those pioneers. I purchased my first computer in the 1980′s. Remember Prodigy? I dialed in almost every day. So when the Internet began coming on strong in the early 1990′s, I jumped in with both feet, and brought our business online.What I found was an incredible opportunity.I started out as a small business owner, operating a photography studio, and servicing people within my local area. It was a traditional studio, offering the standard portrait and wedding services. With two people, we opened a commercial location, and began contacting people within a 10-mile radius. But I knew there had to be a better way. And I found it on the Internet.Thanks to a powerful online marketing strategy, we found success quickly. Within 3 years, we shut down our traditional studio, and began operating a virtual studio online. Our clients changed from people in our local area looking for traditional portraiture, to people all over the world falling in love with our virtual wedding studio, and flying us in to their location.No longer were we stuck selling to the people that resided in our local community. We established an extreme niche market, and went to where our clients were. We raised our prices substantially, and began living the life others only dream about. By changing the way we thought about business, we changed the way we looked for clients. And our profits followed.You too have that power. By changing the way you think, you can change the way your business operates. The possibilities are out there. But thinking differently can sometimes be difficult. It involves stretching out of your comfort zone. It involves creating changes in your business planning. And sometimes these changes can be difficult.Start by asking yourself some basic questions.”How can I take what I do now, and sell it to people 1000 miles from me?”"How do I change my marketing materials to sell to people I may never meet?”"How well do I work with technology? What do I need to learn?”These questions will allow you to think beyond your local area, and start discovering ways of doing what you do anywhere in the world. People all over the country are looking for the services and products you sell. You just need the tools to get your information in front of them.When you expand your target market beyond your local area, and go worldwide, you also add another dilemma to your planning process:”How do I market to the thousands of people added to my new target list?”When you decide to take your business to a much larger market, it’s imperative that you focus on who your exact customer is. As a small business, you can’t afford to market to the world. Defining who your perfect customer is becomes crucial. And knowing how to reach them becomes vital.Your customer can no longer be defined by simple phrases, such as:
Single female between 25-50 years old.
Married female with children under 18.
Instead you have to get into the mind of your client, and define them as precisely as possible. Start with the simple phrases. Then add in the detail. The more you know what interests your customer, the easier it is to reach them. Consider a customer definition black porn
Single female between 25-40 years old. Enjoys traveling, and prefers to take short, exotic vacations milf porn 2-4 times per year to places such as the Caribbean, Europe, Australia and the Fiji Islands. Holds an executive position in the corporate environment, or owns the company. Spends 2-3 weeks per month traveling for business, and holds tens of thousands of frequent flier miles.
Using cartoon porn the above customer description, I can begin finding many ways of targeting this customer. I can consider building up referral partners with travel websites that cater to young singles flying into exotic locations for short trips. I can find networking groups that cater to small business owners, or buy lead lists or place ads in magazines such as Inc. or Entrepreneur magazine. I can consider creating a relationship with airline magazine editors, and advertise or get an article placed as frequently as possible.Obviously, I could continue with many more ideas. But you get the point. The more details I can use to define my perfect customer, the easier it is to determine methods to reach them.By changing the way you market yourself, you can expand your business in ways that will take your business to new heights.Open up your mind to the possibilities. You might be surprised at what awaits you.
