Do You Want To Start A Home Based Business
But Are Asking Yourself, "Can I Do This?"
I love this quote by Mark Twain. It really is true to some extent. What happens is this. You have a idea or a deep down desire to start a home business but because you are so paralyzed by fear and all your past failures that you don't take action to move in that direction.
And so night after night, you lay in bed and think about it... silently.. pondering... dreaming... wondering...
.. and then you get to the end of your life and live in "what if's" and regret.
Don't do that. You have ONE life. Go for your dreams!
CAN YOU DO THIS? YES!
Anytime you come across a new idea, hobby interest, skill set, we ask ourselves if we can actually grasph and do what it is that's in my mind and intention.
Well, for the most part, the answer is yes.
... losing weight...
... or taking up a new hobby like painting, gardening, woodworking, scrapbooking, baseball card collecting...
... or going back to college to get a degree...
... or climbing Mt. Everest...
... or starting a home based business...
It's really simple if think about it. I didn't say easy, I said simple. Here's the steps.
1) Decide what you want to do.
2) Be committed to the learning curve.
3) Be committed with time, energy and cost involved.
4) Don't give up.
5) Find a mentor who has already achieved what you want to do.
6) Join a forum, a group, a community, whether online or offline where there's others who are on the same journey as you are. This way you can exchange ideas, share inspiration and encouragement, have people to celebrate your progress with and help each other along the way. You will also make life long friends during this process. It's absolutely amazing and your life will become so much more richer through these friendships.
So, if the question is whether YOU can start your home based business and be successful, the answer is yes. The better answer is a series of questions to ask yourself to find a more absolute/guaranteed answer.
The series of questions you need to ask yourself are:
"Will you make a decision and not go back on your word?"
"Do you want it bad enough to go through the personal change required?"
"Will you stay the course and not give up?" "Will you moan and groan and complain about the things you must do as a home business entrepreneur or will you move forward with a happy and grateful heart?"
"Will you get the education, the classes, the training, the tools and resources you need to learn what it is you need to learn to brand yourself, to market your business, to be a leader, to set up your process and automation so you can make sales to earn the money you are seeking?"
You see, lots of people say they want to have a home based business if they don't have to learn anything or spend any money.
Who does that make sense to?
Proof Is Everywhere
When you sit in a room filled with 5,000 people who are sharing their stories about WHY they started their home based business...
... and you see people on stage who actually worked their business, who got the education, who applied what they learned, who put in the time, energy and effort, who took action in spite of not being in the mood or afraid but did it anyway....
... and you see company stats showing how much money has been paid out in commissions...
You can see the proof. The proof is all around you.
--- Proof of the personal growth people are experiencing. This is called "breakthroughs".
--- Proof of income and lifestyle.
--- Proof the company is real, the people is real, the success is real.
Here's the thing my friends....
I can show you my results to prove it works, like the picture here, but that doesn't guarantee YOU will make any money, does it. Common sense tells you that you are responsible for making things work in your own life. Yes? I mean, let's get real.
If you're looking for proof that YOU will make money, we can show you pictures and show you company stats and verification of income all day long. It's about YOU.
You have to ask yourself if you'll do what it takes. It takes learning. It takes working. It takes failing forward. I was willing to do that and committed to never quitting. How about you?
There's plenty of proof it works. "It" being a home based business. "It" being Empower Network products, community, company, people, support.
I can tell you this. Anyone CAN do it.
I can tell you I'm just a baby boomer who didn't grow up with computers.
I can tell you I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed.
I don't comprehend technical stuff.
I don't have a college degree.
I'm an introvert.
I have things I need to work on like losing weight that I'm really self conscious of.
I have been through some crap in the last 7 years... divorce, bankrutpcy, foresclosure, death of a parent... and the list goes on.
And the ONLY difference between me and anyone who ... is a level of belief in themselves that no matter what, I can open a book, or watch a video, or hire someone for a hour to hand hold me through something ... and learn. And apply.
And if it still doesn't work, I can go back to the drawing board and try it a different way. And read a book, and watch a video and hire soeone for an hour to hand hold me through something.
My focus is on the END result. Not the process. I believe in myself, even with all my flaws and inadequacies and the DNA I was born with.
Because in the past, there have been things I knew nothing about and learned and succeeded.
I graduated from high school.
I raised children.
I cook, clean, sew, scrapbook, camp, collect baseball cards, scuba dive, swim, the list goes on.
At some point, I had to learn these things. I wasn't born with the skills. And learned because I had to and on some things... I wanted to on other things.
One thing I wanted to do REALLY bad... was to have a home based business where I can use just my laptop and generate income from online sales.
So I set the intention, made the decision, got the education which I paid for, bought some products to use them and make sure I could stand behind them, joined communities, got to networking events, and really... got to work.
I failed forward.
But, I did it. I'm still doing it.
I learn all the time. I still have fears but I do the thing I'm afraid of anyway because it helps me to grow myself.
See how that works? Any reason you can't apply the same common sense to your life and your succes? NO!
The Real Question Is Your Own Belief
Do you believe YOU can learn and apply what you learn?
Do you believe YOU can hire someone to help you with anything you need a little more help with? Do you hire tutors for your children? Same thing.
Do you believe YOU can have conversations with others who are going through the same learning curve and share ideas to help each other?
Do you believe YOU can type on your laptop?
Do you believe YOU can put in a couple hours a day to work on your business?
Do you believe YOU can go to the library and read books on personal development to better yourself?
Do you believe YOU can listen to personal growth audios?
Do you believe YOU have the ability to not quit on yourself?
Do you believe YOU can place an ad or learn to make a blog post like this and share your heart and what's on your mind even if the thought scares you?
Do you believe YOU can decide to not stay a victim to your circumstances or your past and put that behind you? Are you willing to get help and do whatever it takes to change your mindset to be a victor and not a victim?
If so, yes, you can do it! No reason you can't!
Only YOU stand in your way.
I Believe In You!
Sometimes you have to borrow belief until you have your own. I believe you can do anything with Desire and knowing your WHY.
Why do you want to have a home based business?
What's in it for you?
When your desire and Why are clear my friend... nothing will stop you.
Not negative family and friends.
Not the fear of learning.
Not the cost of getting started.
Nothing will stop you.
And you'll be more free than you've ever been your whole life.
Where to Start? Get Your Blog.
If you're ready to get started in your business, you will need a blog. It doesn't matter what business you have or what your product is.
Your blog is your online real estate that allows people to get to know, like and trust you.
It's a place where people can come and learn more about how your products will solve their problem.
Blog can be a pain in the butt and costly to start and maintain. This is why I use the Empower Network blog. It's $25/mo and that's for your hosting, your customizable themes, plugins, the works. Its no fuss, no bother, easy to use.
Okay my friends....
So, again, there are three main questions people have before getting started with their home based business and using Empower Network as their educational platform.
The first one we already talked about. It was "Is Empower Network For Real?"
The Second one is the one we're talking about today which is the issue of whether or not you can do this.
The third one is "Will there be support for me?" And we'll talk about that on my next blog.
In the meantime, let me know of any other questions or concerns you have. I want to help you believe in yourself and Empower Network as your educational platform. It has everything you need to succeed... Just add YOU. :)
Have an awesome day! At the time of this writing, I'm enjoying a 7 day Disney vacation so I'm heading out to play with the family. Making memories to last a lifetime. I'm so grateful for my business and going through the learning curve has been SO worth it!
I wish you your best life!
