One person makes a sale and earns a $50 commission. They are so excited they can not sleep that night. Another person is in the top 5 for affiliate product sales and is getting ready to spend a week in Hawaii. Who is more successful?
In this article we will answer the question of what is home business success.
1. The fact that you can work at home for yourself makes you a success in the eyes of the person who drops their kids off at daycare and heads off to a job they do not like. Success does not have to be defined by the amount of money you earn.
2. Home business success can be achieved by anyone willing to learn how to run a home business. This is not as easy as it sounds because you will face many challenges when you work at home. Your ability to deal with those is paramount to your success.
People think since you work at home for yourself they can call or stop by anytime they want. You will have to define what your hours are and stick to those if you want your home business to be successful.
Some people go so far as to set up a home office with posted hours on the door. The kids know this is off limits when you are working.
3. Any home business needs customers to survive. You will have to learn how to advertise and promote your business. The internet offers many ways to do this, but very few people have the skills at first to do it right.
This will mean learning something new. Even offline advertising like business cards, newspaper ads, flyers, word of mouth, and others methods will take a lot of work. Understand this though, the heartbeat of your business is advertising, no matter how many ways you do it.
4. A successful home business ultimately is one that you enjoy getting up and going to work everyday for yourself. Finding something you love to do is the greatest thrill you will ever experience in your adult life.
As you can see we spend very little time associating home business success with the amount of money you make. Money is important because it buys you time to do what you want. A successful home business is one that is profitable, but that is not the main key to your success.
