It’s pretty awesome to see people that start a home business and want to make it big in home business. The sad part is that about 96% of them fail to make it anywhere near the level that they desired to make it to when they started.
So do most will fail at business… Online or Offline?
Before I get into the question of how to make it big in home business. I am going to give you a little background on where I fit into all this and why I’m writing about this topic.
I started out as a teen going door to door with the American way (Amway for short). It was a way for me to make a few extra bucks and help my parents out as well. however, that didn’t last too long as I was met with obstacles that I found too much for me to tackle at a young age. I was literally more into playing baseball during the summers.
Once I was able to sign up as a distributor of Amway at the ripe age of 21, things weren’t much different. One exception was that I had friends that helped me and we would have weekly meetings at a Denny’s to discuss business strategy. A local mastermind if you will. Today, these would be called meetups as we are all using the power of the internet and running zoom meetings or using Skype for personal one on ones.
As I saw no real improvement in my business after a few years of hoping things would improve (Talking to people was scary for me at the time), I let my distributorship lapse and most of our team moved away or quit as well.
The questions you’ll have to master and the challenges that arise at very odd times are what makes most decide to quit on their dreams. But for those that have a bigger why than what life deals them. Those are the ones that make it.
The Online Marketing Adventures
Then I found internet marketing to be a great venture because it happened on the internet. The internet at the time was a place where people could be anonymous. Little did I know that in order to be successful, you actually had to be vulnerable to them.
It was all about building trust and becoming a friend to them. You know… relationships!
So there I was Running ads and chatting up people online so that I could build that trust. That was the way to go. Or so it seemed to be.
What I found out was a lot of resistance with chatting and ads needed to have more creativity to work. For this reason, I told myself “I’m out” #Sharktank 😉
So, when I take this instance and hold it up against the landscape of home business owners today, I find some similarities that hold true.
It just doesn’t matter what age or stage in life you come from. You have to continually be working on your inner game in order to be a success on the outside.
So let’s get into the how’s of making it big in home business.
1. Read Books
Just not any ol’ book will do with this one. It’s going to take a wise choice. The book you probably don’t want to read is probably the one you need to read. That being said, it also has to be one that will do you the most improvement.
I found that if you tackle the hard to conquer issues first your ride will smooth out much sooner than if you wait until the end. Just like the saying goes…"If you procrastinate what needs to be done, You'll never accomplish anything that matters the most to you." Click To Tweet
Here are a few books that I personally recommend (because I refer to them over and over). Mostly, the audible version on my way to work in the morning but the book is the best to have for notes.
- Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
- Go Pro by Eric Worre
- Vlog Like A Boss by Amy Schmittauer
2. Hang around people that are better than you.
It’s said that you are the average of the 5 people you hang around the most. Does this mean physically visiting them?
Yes, it really does mean just as it says. However, you can circumvent that by hanging out with your mentors online using things like Skype, zoom, and any other video conferencing tool.
If you’re ready to REALLY make it big in home business, you have to realize that it will never happen unless you are consistent over time. Thirty, sixty, ninety days is a great start.
I like to relate this to sports because that’s what I did growing up. I was told by my coaches that if I didn’t show up to practice, I didn’t get to play in the game. So what did I do? I practiced until I proved to myself and my coach that I could handle playing and eventually start.
This is what it takes to make it big in business. Consistency.
4. Build Relationships
I started building a business in 2010. What I thought I could get by with ended up biting me in the butt.
Relationships are necessary. They can be the biggest asset you can have in business and in your life. So, when I finally got over the fear of being wrong or even having people attack me for no reason at all. I started growing as a person and that is attractive to people. The relationships start to build and a byproduct of that so does your business.
Build relationships with your team. Your income depends on it and so do your people. They do not want to feel like they have been left out in the dark to fend for themselves.
Which brings me to the next tip…
When you’re building a business online, it’s so easy to hide behind your computer screen. I’ve mentioned above that the best way to build relationships is to hang around other people that have what you want. They will teach you and more importantly, influence you to make better decisions due to having a better mindset.
Being authentic will give your team a sense that you have their backs and will do what it takes to build their business.
These are the 5 biggest tips that I can give you that will help you make it big in home business.
