|Any new business requires an investment of capital, time and planning. You will have a much higher chance of success, working from home, if you spend time establishing yourself first.|
An airplane uses most of itís fuel at take off. Network marketing is similar. You need to put in a huge effort to get your business off the ground. If you remain consistent in your efforts your business will fly. If you are inconsistent you will be stopping and starting. You will use up so much fuel on each take off that you will burn out before you reach cruising level.
Your Business Plan
Have written goals of what you want to achieve in your business. Have time lines for when you will reach each level. From this you can write a plan of how you will ensure you reach your targets.
Follow your written plan. Draw a line down the side of your diary page. Mark non negotiable times. For example when you will do personal development, follow up calls, advertising and for how long. Stick to your time limits. Also write down the things that you must achieve for the day. This gives you a visual reminder of your Daily Method of Operation (DMO). This is a simple way to keep a daily check on your time management skills. Donít finish work until you achieve your goals for that day. Do not compromise
Concentrate on Areas of Importance
Decide on the areas of your activity that give you the most return. Continually ask yourself ďis this activity directly and positively related to retailing or recruiting? Donít lose your self in the unimportant activities. Remember the 80/20 rule. This states that 80% of your business will come from 20% of your work, 20% of your customers will provide 80% of your sales. So it is imperative that you concentrate on the 20% and do not getting lost in the 80% that is not important. Structure your time so that it is invested where you achieve the best rate of return.
Build Your Inner Strengths
Be respectful to everyone you come in contact with. Always be positive and enthusiastic. Donít down grade yourself with negative thoughts or words. Realize that we all have a continual responsibility to grow, learn and improve ourselves. Commit yourself to at least 1 hour of personal development a day. This can be fun and easily achieved. Always have a positive cd/tape playing in your car. When you do gardening, housework or exercise, make sure you are listening to personal development tapes/cdís at the same time. Donít make it a chore. Make it a fun and integral part of your day.
You can achieve great wealth, satisfaction and happiness when you have the right business opportunity and the right attitude. Establish good guidelines for yourself the first day you start your business. Follow them every day. If they are not one hundred percent improve or alter your plan. Work as hard on improving yourself as you work on building your business. You will be well rewarded for your efforts.
