Super smart idea
Thatentrepreneur side of you is super, super exciting.
And you're going to besuccessful as long as you follow these steps.
If you don't follow these steps,you're going
You could make a mess of yourself.
I know lots of people havetried to start a business at home and they got ran into problems, they didn'trealize this and this and this and this.
I'm going to help you with some steps tohelp make sure you're nice and in order and you're got yourself on a good pathhere in moving forward.
So, let's do the right thing and get education fromsomebody who has a lot of experience about this and let's take some goodsteps.
So that you can be successful in doing this because it's a super, super,smart idea.
So how do you
But do someresearch.
There's a lot of opportunities out there to have an in-home business.
Alot of great ideas, lots of products, lots of services.
And do your research.
Youknow, not only just research the company.
But find some people who work with thatproduct or service or maybe you're going
But if you're going
Find out what other people are doing and how they're doingit.
Don't go in
Researchonline but also research by talking to people who are in a similar industry asthe one you're choosing
When you don't talk to people, you're going toprobably make the same mistakes that they made along the way.
So, number 1, doyour homework, do some research.
And when is going to be the family time.
Abig glitch happens to people who work at home is amixed family and work time way too much.
And they can't draw a line of when it isthey're working and when it is that they're not working.
And what happens isthe kids.
The kids walk into the office whenever they want.
They come and talk tomom and dad whenever they want.
And at first, it's kind of fun and cute that thekids can come in and talk to you whenever they want.
But sooner or later,it starts to be the wrong time for them to walk in.
Or you've had multipleinterruptions going on and that starts to become frustrating and discouraging.
And now your kids become a problem or maybe it's your spouse who just walks inwhenever they want.
You're not going to be productive and when you're notproductive, the business isn't gonna do well.
And then now, the business you choseto do a home is actually the problem of the home.
This right here of you creatingthe schedule of when it is you're in your office and when it is that you'renot in your office or when is you are working when it is you're notworking.
And that schedule also needs to be shared with the family or shared withyour spouse so that they can see what your intention is and so that the familyand your spouse can learn
Because when work time isdisrespected, it there begins to become regret and resentment and you from themto you and from you
And that creates contention.
And that's notproductive for an in-home business.
When I hear people say, "Oh, I want
" That's the recipe for disaster.
Or there's just going
So you'regoing to need to get in
Next is create the office space.
Where isyour office? Is this the kitchen table? Is it the couch? Is it the bedroom? Is thatthe extra bedroom down the hall? Is that the laundry room? Where is the officespace? Now, your office space needs some rules of what can be brought in
You see one of my first offices in the house was my garage.
That's my firstoffice space was the garage.
I had a card table in the corner next
But I had a stapler and a three-holepunch my cell phone.
Set up some files in a box and the phone book.
And I had theselittle office supplies that were out there.
And one day, one of my officesupplies was missing.
My stapler is missing.
And I had to go looking all over the house to try my find my stapler.
Somebodycame into my office,
And I had to go chase that thing down.
So when my office is notrespected with his office supplies, that can create some contention or justliterally levels of frustration.
So, there's got
I remember going out to my card tableand there was a bike lock left on my table on my papers and some gloves weretossed on my table.
It's like hold on, I know my tables in the garage but this ismy workspace.
And so I got
But in thisoffice space, there needs to be some guidelines and some rules.
And if youroffice is going to be at the kitchen table, you're going to need
And not leave your papersall over the counter or leave your papers all over the kitchen table.
Because that space is you know, that's going
But I've heard of people.
You know,finding some little corner in the room and putting a table and a plug in overthere and designating that place
When you can create the spacethat has some guidelines and that now is deemed the office space and it's.
Andthese guidelines are talked about with the family, there'll be less frustration,less contention and more progress.
Because when you get interrupted and youcan't do your work and you can't find your stapler and your stuff gets messedwith, that's going to take forever to get your business off the ground.
So,designate the workspace and you keep that office space cleaned.
You can get abox with little hanging folders to put your papers in.
They don't need to bespread all over the table all the time.
Get a space
I've met a lot of great people in my life and I.
When Ihear that they're struggling, I also find out their office is messy.
When I hearpeople who are succeeding, I hear that their office does get messybut they have places for things to go.
They really do.
The more we keep ouroffice in order and have guidelines for it, the more integrity the office has.
Themore respect the office has.
The more the family can respect the office.
And yourespect the schedule of when you're working or when you're not working theintegrity of your business will go up.
And that's what people aredrawn
That's really what they're drawn to.
There's all kinds of servicesout there in the world.
There's always somebody else doing what you're doingbut people are drawn to those people who have higher levels of integrity.
And thatcomes from the respect and the order of what's going on at home.
Next step is to be able to look at what kind of goals that you have.
You know, youhear the saying of, "I can't wait to I can work from home because then I can dowhatever I want.
" That's not actually true if you want to be successful.
You maywant to set a monthly goal, a weekly goal and a daily goal of whatyou want to accomplish.
Maybe it's phone calls.
You know, ornumber of clients or number of sales per month.
But to be able
Here's my monthly newcontacts goal.
And here's my next goal.
" Next goal.
But you literally are writingthese goals out from a monthly point of view and a weekly point of view and adaily point of view.
And if you're new
And but please consider breakingyour the month down into monthly, weekly and daily goals.
And this is.
A goal iswhat you're going
What are you going
So working a home there tends to be this whole thing Iget
That canundermine you.
That can totally take away the opportunity to build a reallysuccessful business from working at home.
Next is education.
You're not smartenough yet.
You may know.
You think, you know a lot but I know when somebody cantell me that they just learned something or they just attended a class or theythey just went through a training course or they up leveled their educationrecently.
That person is going to be successful.
Education helps you up level,education opens your mind, education helps you move forward.
Education keepsyou on the front edge of all things that are going on in life.
So for you, ifyou're thinking, "Oh, I've got it made.
I don't need to go take a class or study acourse or listen to that.
" If you ever find yourself thinking that, you justmight be slipping backwards.
I know for me, I've been doing what I dofor the last 15 years.
And I still have education coming in
I mean, I just surround myself with education.
I don'twant what I have falling apart.
Education keeps you wiseand keeps you conscious.
The last one I want
Somebody who is in the industry that you're getting into.
Up here, you knowyou're researching.
You know, talking to people.
And I mentioned up here,you know find people to talk to.
But a men
Mentors are great because they areconscious and aware of the mistakes they've made.
And another thing aboutmen
That's what's cool about people who are mentors.
They know what doesn't work andthey know what does work.
And a mentor will save you a lot of time and thereare mentors that would mentor you for no cost and there's men
And you find out which type of men
But Iknow for me, if I don't have somebody coaching me or giving me education ormentoring me, if that's not happening, there's a good chance I'm wandering offthe success path.
So find yourself a mentor.
It makes a big difference in howfast you move forward and how efficient you move forward.
