- Goal: Everyone always says “you have to set goals to succeed”. I always heard this statement but never applied it because I thought it was bogus. However, it wasn't until my husband and I were so far in debt that we decided goal setting was a must for us. We set realistic goals to pay off credit cards, bank loans, and have enough money for our monthly needs. 19 months into the adventure we learned that goal setting works; we had paid off $90,000 in debt! Goal setting works for life and your home business; but you must write it down and re-evaluate your progress always aiming to increase your residual income.
- Determination: What drives you to succeed in your home business? Do you have loans to pay off, college tuition for your children, early retirement plans? Whatever it is, that is what drives you to your desk each and every day. You can choose to work for someone else or you can start your own home business and earn income that will allow you to live the life of your dreams!
- Attitude: People sense when we are mad, upset, confused. They get turned off if you are always that 'Negative Nancy' person. Be the person everyone wants to be around. Everyone wants to be around someone who is positive, happy, and speaks with integrity and passion. Your attitude can drive your business to succeed but your attitude must be positive about your home business and your product.
- Work Smarter Not Harder: Have you ever watched someone work and say “wow if they just did it this way it would be so much easier”? Well, I am saying this to you; set your schedule and stick to it! Get to your home office desk and be productive. Don't worry about organizing those files right now because those files are not going to bring in the income. If you are aiming to increase your residual income then it starts with hard work dedicated to the actual foundation of your home company.
- Breath: It will be frustrating and trying at times. But take a step away from your desk and …. Breath! You are going to hear a lot more “no's” then you will “yes”. But it is the yes that will build our residual income. We are aiming to increase our residual income so we are finding the next person to say yes. Less than 10% of everyone you ask to be on your team will be your yes. And that's okay! If everybody said yes then there might not be money for us to make at our home business.
