Not everyone should get into an MLM home based business. They’re easy enough to start, simple to join, but just wanting to leave a job isn’t a good enough reason. You have to want it badly enough to stick with it long enough to see your efforts mature.
You can want it all – the American Dream – and you can have it. But are you sure you have what it takes? Can you answer yes to the following questions?
Do you have the self assurance that even when the way seems long and it’s not happening as fast you thought it would, you’ll keep working at it? Discouragement will hit – especially during the first six months.
It’s the most important timeframe for any business start-up. Know ahead of time that everything won’t always run smoothly and have a plan of action in place for when you do get down about being in business for yourself.
Can you begin with the end in mind? Thomas Edison failed when trying to invent the light bulb 10,000 times before success finally came. He endured a life rife with setbacks, but he didn’t give up because he kept his gaze firmly fixed on what he wanted. Success didn’t elude Thomas Edison because he refused to let it.
Are you willing to go against the crowd? There will always be people who will tell you why something can’t be done. There will always be people who are doing exactly what the first group says isn’t possible. Success with an MLM home based business is for those who do what others can’t – or won’t.
Do you have the character to work even when there’s no boss demanding accountability for your time? In marketing, you are the owner. You have to act like a professional and that means you’ll work at developing your business even when you’d prefer to watch the Red Sox or Yankees game.
Even if there’s a huge sale at the mall and you’re going to miss out on the savings of the year, you work instead. Life as a marketer can be fun and rewarding, but it’s a business – and the only way to have it all is to give it your best regularly.
Can you ignore distractions? Being at home isn’t like working from an office in a building miles away. At home, you have the distraction of the television, the call of the telephone, the lure of computer games and if you’re a parent – the kids.
Can you shut them all out until your work for the day is done? Starting an MLM home based business can allow you to have it all if you want it. You have to want it enough to have the courage to get started and keep going regardless of whatever obstacles get in your way.
