A conversation I had today prompted me to make this short video. There are a lot of part-time and home based businesses out in the world today. They go by a lot of different names; direct sales, mlm, multi-level-marketing, network marketing, etc. I can tell you from a successful business person’s and MBA’s perspective the business model has some real merits and can be very successful for the right person. The challenge is finding the right company with great products and a great compensation plan. Once you have made that decision, you must be committed and be able to work through challenges that go with building ANY successful business. Having an excellent leadership team is key in anyone’s long-term success. I have heard for years the saying, “you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself” and this is so very true and why you need to pick the right company with the right leadership teams in place to help you become successful.
Here are a few random thoughts I had that prompted me to make this video.
• You want a six figure income from your home-based business but you aren’t willing to work hard at it for the next 2-5 years to have retirement income for life? You are willing to work hard for someone else for the next 20-30 years and maybe be able to retire? You probably need to rethink your plan.
• Don’t compare your success to those that are 2 to 3 years ahead of you in the business, compare yourself to you.
• Every challenge and stumble along the way are just more details to add to your success story in 2, 3, 5 or 10 years from now.
• Don’t listen to the naysayers that don’t have the guts to start on a home based business, listen to those that have forged the way for you.
Watch this short video. I hope it helps.
