|7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by andreweb(m): 12:21am On Nov 08, 2018|
Looking back on many unsuccessful attempts at home business, i wish i had received guidance from someone who had already been down the road i wanted to travel. i had so many failures that i started to doubt that success in a home business would ever become a reality for me.
Thankfully, i didn't give up and through perseverance i was able to achieve the success that had eluded me for years. Along the way i discovered many things that i wish i had known when i started this journey.
My success has literally transformed my live. i believe that to whom much has been given, much is required. Consider this information my gift to you. If we can be of assistance to you on any online business, please do not hesitate to get my contact from any of the links on this article.
1. Success doesn't happen overnight.
For some reason people think that they should become rich in a few weeks with their new home business and some people believe success should happen within weeks or days! i once introduced a man in his early 50's to an online business and he was excited. When we first met he complained that he had been working hard for more than 30 years and he was broke.
He said he never had any time for himself or his family. i told him what it would take to become successful and he agreed to do it. Then, he disappeared. A few weeks later he called to tell me that he was quitting. He hadn't even started and here he was ready to give up.
i asked him if he would be better off quitting his full-time job and keeping his home business! Of course, i didn't really mean that he should quit his job, but he had been working full-time for more than 30 years and he was still broke. He started his home business just a few weeks earlier and he never gave it a chance.
Why is it that so many people think that they should become wealthy in a few weeks? The answer probably lies in all the get rich quick schemes that are so prevalent in our society today. You've seen the emails or read these lines in your junk mail. No Selling, We Do All The Work For You, Make $30,000 in 90 days and on and on.
Those get rich quick scams cause people to think that every home business is a scam and that's not true. i recently talked to a nice guy called adekunle from ibadan who is seriously considering affiliate marketing. During our conversation i made it clear that he wouldn't be rich in 30 days and his response was the kind of response i hear often, "Thanks for telling me the truth. I'm happy to know that I'm dealing with people of integrity."
Most people who start a home business quit in their first 90 days and go back to their dreadful lives of desperation. Most people aren't really living. They are only existing. They're going from one day to the next without any hope of a better life. Benjamin Franklin said "most people die at 18, we just don't bury them until they turn 65."
2. Success doesn't happen without work.
I talked to a woman who said she was interested in changing her life. When it was time for her to make a decision she asked me, "Do I have to do anything?" "No" I replied, "once a month i will just back the money truck up to your house and unload!"
If you had a traditional business you'd have to open your business every day. If you have a job you've got to show up if you want to get paid. When you start a home business you can't simply sign up and expect the money to start being deposited in your bank account. There's work to be done.
Is it hard to become successful in a home business? Compared to giving all of the best years of your life to your employer and missing birthdays, anniversaries, your child's first words, your child's first steps and realizing that life is nearly over and in your golden years you don't have the money to do the things you want to do, no it really isn't that hard at all!
Success doesn't happen without work and it isn't limited to working your business. Are you committed to improving your skills and working on you? Read at least 10 pages from a great book every day. Books like "Think and Grow Rich" will change the way you think and when you change the way you think you will change your life.
Expecting success without work from your home business is like expecting a paycheck from a job that you never started. It just doesn't make sense.
3. You must be disciplined to achieve success.
So, you're working your new home business and a friend calls offering to take you to lunch. Can you afford to go? Your favorite show is on TV, but you know you need to be working your home business, what will you do? Perhaps the biggest adjustment most of us need to make is to be disciplined in our home business.
Let's face it in a work environment there is usually supervision. Many people fail in a home business because there's nobody looking over their shoulder to see that they do what they need to do.
Consider setting business hours. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but asking friends and family members to respect your business and your business hours is an important step to success. It's also a good idea to have a permanent work space, so you can shut the door, eliminate distractions and get your work done.
This is a difficult adjustment for some people to make, but your children can learn that when Mommy or Daddy is in this room with the door shut that they are working. When you promise to call somebody back at a certain time you've got to find the time.
Discipline can be difficult with all the distractions that can occur in your home, but it is one ingredient that you must have to become successful.
4. Who you're involved with is more important than the business you're in.
Let's face it, most people don't really have a clue how to operate a business, any kind of business not just a home business. When we're young we are told to go to school to get good grades so we can get a good... JOB! That's exactly the path most of us start on, get a job, work hard, work long hours and try to get a promotion so we can work more hours and hopefully make more money.
We do that for 10, 20 or 30 years and then realize that we are never going to get ahead. That's when the idea that a home business could change our life hits most of us. We've been told to be good employees and that's what most of us have done all of our lives.
There is no substitute for leadership. If you are blessed to find somebody who has been successful in a home business and you know that they can sincerely help you change your life forever, you should jump at the chance to work with them. Make sure you're comfortable with them before you get started. So, what should you look for? You should look for somebody that knows exactly what they are doing. When you ask questions are they comfortable or uncomfortable? Do they have a path that you can follow and become successful?
5. Technology has changed everything.
Many years ago you had to get out and meet people and most business was done face to face. You could call people around the country, but if they had any interest in your business you had to send a package overnight. That proved to be very expensive.
When i was broke, I thought everybody that sounded serious, was serious. I was sending out packages several times a week only to find that these people weren't serious at all.
Then, the internet changed everything. You don't have to meet people face to face anymore, although I must admit it's still my favorite way of doing business. Today, you can upload a video in seconds, so people can see you. You can send an email with links to websites, videos and your contact information. Auto responders make you look like a Fortune 500 company, and nobody knows how big your business really is because anybody anywhere can have a great looking website.
6. It's a home business, but that doesn't mean it can't be a big business.
Most people that start a home business are looking for an extra $200 to $500 a month. What would an extra $10,000 or $50,000 a year do for you and your family, seriously! Maybe it's because so many of us have failed so many times that we just don't believe in ourselves anymore.
Once you understand the basic fundamentals of your new home business and once you've achieved some success, you'll understand that the sky is the limit.
7. As a Man Thinketh...
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Joyce Meyer is fond of saying that where the mind goes, the man follows. Of course, it makes no difference whether you are a man or a woman, you are what you think you are. As i struggled in my home business it was easy to become discouraged. i had always failed. Those constant thoughts of failure surrounded me.
Then, i realized that others had succeeded. Why did they succeed where so many others had failed? Could it really be that the only reason they achieved success was that they thought differently? i was so broke and so desperate for a breakthrough in my live that i realized that i could not afford the luxury of having negative thoughts. There were plenty of other negative people that i could have listened to, but what was that going to get me?
There is nothing wrong with having a positive attitude. It is wrong to misrepresent your current financial situation. One of the most disappointing things i encounter in home business is the tendency that people have to inflate their incomes. There must be some school of thought that this is appealing or O.K. and it is not. Once you lose your integrity, you can never get it back. I have done everything i can to make it clear that a home business will not typically solve your financial pressures overnight.
Negative people tried to convince me that i would never have success in affiliate marketing. when they asked what i was up to, i told them affiliate marketing. when they ask what is affiliate marketing all about the? i told them it is all about recommending other peoples products and getting commission when sales are made. especially digital products like ebooks, softwares, webiners and so on. they often ask me who would buy those products? they were correct, in my first 2 years in affiliate marketing i made only 3 sales. which was about 60usd. the story all changed after i got a mentor that has the kind of results i already want.
in my first year after undertaking his course, i got a different perspective of affiliate marketing. i will show a handful of nairalanders exactly what he thought me that i started having the kind of results you will see in the source link.

bro i can actually list hundreds for you but because of time and space i will not be able to do much. i have actually nurtured many ordinary Nigerians to succeed in most of them. your sense of problem solving is limited to big invention that is why you are seeing it differently.
1. you have thousands of unemployed graduates in your area. you have thousands of parents that their children are not doing good in schools especially in a particular subject. get those graduates to submit their c.vs and let those parents know that you have a company that can provide them with the best lesson teacher according to their needs. this can be achieved through fliers and handbills. depending on your will power and burning desire to succeed, you can start from the veranda of your home or get an office between 10 - 100k. even a local office can serve. lets say you registered a company for 15k, rented an office for 20k, bought chairs and benches for 10k. etc your start up cost is around 50-100k and monthly you can be deducting 2k or so from the teachers salary as running cost. all payments are going to be made to you.
2. your area can be lacking fast foods and you decide to start supplying plantain and sweet potato chips to all the stores in your area. bro you are already solving a problem.
3. the offices in your area might need office accessories which might not be nearby. you can visit them, strike a deal to be supplying them, get a supplier in the market that will give you and get paid weekly or monthly and supply to those offices on demand. bro you are solving a problem. i can go on and on.
please do not tell me that they are not easy because nothing good comes easy. you have to be on your toes and have your sleeves folded.

first and formost, it is important to note that clcikbank officially does not have Nigeria on its list of supported countries. but their is a way around it. you can register using a vpn. a vpn simply means a virtual private network. it is a simple software that changes your location from Country A to any other country of your choice. lets say from Nigeria to uk. their are hundreds of paid and free vpns. some work and others don,t. a free vpn that currently work is the turbo vpn. if you will like a detailed step by step guide including how to get traffic and withdraw your earnings here in Nigeria please check here

bro you will surely fail. you tried it last year and failed. the truth is that if you will try it again, most likely you will fail again. i say so because it is a fact that most start ups need a period of about 3years to be on their feet. but your comment showed that you tried for a few week or few months. bro you have to work so hard until everyone else start believing in you and take you serious. i have nurtured many such start ups to success. if you are not the lazy type, we can discuss about how to have your business on its toes.

Wow bro God bless you for this.
Lack of information is what is really killing newbies.
Most of these newbies believe whatever they see online and they believe that's exactly how it is.
They fail to understand that they are only seeing the finished work.
Lemme use my case as an example.
I have been working as a beautician for a couple of years before i derived interest in online business and I still didn't feel fulfilled while I was into beautifying.
I had this friend back then who earns at least $3k on a monthly basis via CPA/Affiliate Marketing.
Truth be told, he openly told me that I have to put in a lot of work and I need a reasonable capital so as to earn like him.
But the problem was that I felt if I could watch how he did it, I would grab quickly (I am a very quick learner).
Though i did sit with him on few occasions and I thought I knew the ropes.
When I decided to do it on my own, I lost not just money but I lost sleep and trust. Little did I know that there were things he did at the Backend and those things worked for him at the front end but I didn't know.
I ended up losing interest in CPA/Affiliate Marketing and I jumped to fiverr and I made peanuts in about 2 years.
But things changed for better when I decided to get myself a mentor that knows what he does like the back of his hand.
The first thing i did was that i made a list of thing i have interest in making money online and i did my own deligent research to know the risk involved in each of my interest.
When i was done researching, i set out to look for a mentor (all thanks to google for their rating) so as to learn how he or she earns.
I was very ready to learn the basics before moving to an advanced level.
My dream came came to life when I had the opportunity to visit Abidjan and I met a very wonderful lady who shaped me into the earner I am today.
I learnt how to trade the Foreign Exchange Market aka Forex aka Spot Market from her and I am glad I made the decision to get off my high horse and become humble so as to learn the ropes.
In a nutshell, what I am trying to say is that newbies really need to properly learn what they are aiming to get into.
You can't just jump into an online money making avenue without proper knowledge and expect to make money.
As you take jump enter, you go double the speed when you wan jump out.
I hope I have made a little sense with this jargons I have typed.

bro you are so on track. i have a long term fx strategy i am implementing. its a period of 6months and it yields mega results.
|Re: 7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by andreweb(m): 11:07pm On Dec 09, 2018|
bro some people are so shallow minded that you just have to pardon them for the way they think.
|Re: 7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by SmartMindsFx: 11:08pm On Dec 09, 2018|
I am a scalper o!
I'm into fx fulltime so I don't have the luxury of that 6 months.
|Re: 7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by SmartMindsFx: 11:15pm On Dec 09, 2018|
To be honest, some of these self acclaimed gurus aren't helping matters too.
Everything is not about money.
I remember an AD I saw on crypto trading seminar and the fee was worrisome.
If you are already make huge sum In a business, you can carry others along by either lowering your fee to what the low income earners who are lookin to scale can afford.
How person go charge $500 to teach people how to trade crypto by organizing a seminar that lasts 3 days?
|Re: 7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by andreweb(m): 11:17pm On Dec 09, 2018|
bro both scalping and the strategy i am implementing both works. although i prefer what i am currently doing. but i still prefer my strategy. i do not want to be numeric on how much i started with, how much is in the account now and how much it would be at the end of the 6months. it will sound so unbelievable to the readers. i am compounding my trades at 5% daily. with zero withdrawal. you can have a glimpse using compoundaily.com . the initial deposit was 2k usd and i do not trade during weekends. you can do the calculations. although from my 3rd month i will be trading for just 3% per day.
|Re: 7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by andreweb(m): 11:21pm On Dec 09, 2018|
bro if the instructor actually earns a lot and have loaded strategies to teach, i do not mind paying 2k usd for such training. if the price is affordable people will call him a scam. how can you make 100k usd from crypto and be teaching people for 50usd? thats the lame question they will be asking. i actually see no problem with the pricing if their are a lot of proven strategies to be learned.

|Re: 7 Things You Need To Know About Home Business Before 2019 by SmartMindsFx: 11:27pm On Dec 09, 2018|
The point I am making is that you need to carry people along once in a while.
You can't learn how to effectively trade crypto or any other financial market in 3days na. That's extortion of the highest order.
My company right now has over 15 students who are learning how to trade forex and crypto from scratch and none was charged a penny.
The economic is not helping and we should be our brother's keeper don't you think.
