Having a Positive Attitude in Business Palmer AK

In essence, we all start out being able to succeed as much as the next person. I don't know too many home based business owners who were given the silver platter or a big bundle of money to start a home based business. So, why is it that some home based business owners soar and others sit and dwindle and eventually fade away? Why are some home based business owners always up and positive and others negative and look for what they can complain about.

Working Your Business

Stop Singin' the Blues

Sometimes home based business owners need to hear some "tough love". It isn't necessarily fun to hear, but at times, it is needed to make sure that you are staying on track with how you should be running and portraying your business.

I am worn out from hearing the "poor poor me" bit; the complaining over and over again. Instead of whining about your situation, DO something about it. Instead of making excuses about WHY you can't succeed, leap into action to change things.

In essence, we all start out being able to succeed as much as the next person. I don't know too many home based business owners who were given the silver platter or a big bundle of money to start a home based business. So, why is it that some home based business owners soar and others sit and dwindle and eventually fade away? Why are some home based business owners always up and positive and others negative and look for what they can complain about.

It's all about attitude. It's all about goals. It's all about hard work. It's all about perseverance. It's all about seeing the big picture and doing what you need to do in order to make it happen. AND it's all about taking ownership and acting like a responsible adult.

If things are not working the way you want, it is time to step back and take a good look at what IS working for you and what isn't. It is also time to look at how you come across to others and how THAT may affect your business. There are several things you can do, or NOT do, to create a shift for your business:

1. Do some research and educate yourself on a variety of topics:

∗How to Run a Successful Home Based Business
∗How to Market Your Product
∗How to Organize your Business & Time
∗Search Engine Optimization (for those with websites)
∗How to Write Ads that Work
∗The Power of Networking
∗Secrets in Advertising
∗How to Budget Your Business
∗Time Management

2. Take time to PUT INTO MOTION what you have learned. Don't put all that reading and research to waste by not applying it.

3. Don't be too proud to look to others for help. Look at the people that you see are successful. Instead of harboring possible feelings of envy or jealousy, or even the thoughts of "well I could never do that", study what they have done. Ask them if they could share some ideas or mentor you. Don't expect that this advice or mentoring "should" be free. Be willing to pay or barter for help. You can't expect that someone should give up their own time, away from their own business and family, to guide and teach you.

4. Make better use of your time. Take a reality check and chart your time for a few days, so you can see exactly what you are doing when you "should" be working your business. Are you spending too much time on message boards or email li...
