Having a business from home , whether it be part time or full time, can be an endeavor that frustrates many people.
Having had home businesses for a number of years I can say that there is one thing that will cause the surmise of many hopeful entrepreneurs from having success.
I can attest to this because I have personally seen others guilty of this, and I myself have had to fight this negative tendency off .
I term it the ‘Roller Coaster phenomenon’.
Here is a description of it.
You join a program or start your own home business and are just totally stoked about this new endeavor that is going to give you financial independence and more.
You come out of the gates running like a top stud at the Kentucky Derby.
You do all the right things. You have done your research , set goals you want to achieve, you have a real game plan and a vision where you want to be 6 months done the road ,2 years, 3 years and more.
Everything looks great. The novelty of your business from home is going strong ,and you cannot be stopped.
Well, here comes the problem and this problem seems to plague many who want to be home business owners.
Some time down the road, whether it be a few weeks or a few months the novelty of your new business will wear off. There will be days you will not see much progress ,and you thought things would be running on all cylinders by then.
What happens here ? Most people just kind of half haphazardly run their home business. They really do not feel like working it most days. The excitement is gone and many just throw the towel completely in and move on to something else.
Kind of sad, uh ?? Here is really the sad part. If many of these people would have stuck around a little longer and worked straight through those boring ‘doldrums’ , success would have been right around the corner for them.
I myself have been gotten caught in the doldrums of running a business.
Here are some things things that have helped me combat the ‘boring periods’ in your home business and we help you also.
1. Realize that even Donald Trump has experienced lulls in his business career. Times he wasn’t sure he wanted to get up and keep doing some of the boring things that most people do not want to do after the novelty of the business is gone. So make a note of this and look at this as a challenge and if you want Success you must really focus on your business even on days you do not feel like it. Just know there will be a payoff later.
2. Right down your goals, and visions for your business and place it right in front of you so you can see it every day.
3. Also right down on another piece of paper that lulls in your business from home WILL happen. Times where you will feel like not doing anything and maybe just feel like giving it up.
It is just a natural part of being a entrepreneur.
However , look at this as an opportunity and time to capitalize ! You know many, many others will bow out and because you did not it will mean more potential Success for you.
I know it can sometimes be easier said than done.
And I think it sounds cliche but the adage ‘no pain no gain’ can be applied to the home business world too 😉
Sticking things out doing the little things no one else wants to do each and everyday sets apart the winners from the losers ! 🙂
