Diary of Beginning Home Business Entrepreneur Part 1.
Hello entrepreneurs. I have been in business for about 3 months. I started my business to become rich and get out of my job. The current job position I hold is a computer network teacher in a medium-sized School District. I want out of this position because I know I can do much better. If you are starting or thinking about starting a home business then you know exactly how I feel. If you are a beginner in a home business, I would like you to know that things will be rough. But you can get through the rough times to reap the rewards.
As I stated earlier, I have been in business for about three months. I am still waiting for the profits to come in. Why am I still working in my business? I continue working on my business because of the reward. I want to be rich. I also enjoy being home with my children in the summer. After dealing with the my children this summer, I am going to enjoy working at home ALONE during the school year.
As you should know, the only why to become rich is to be your own boss. The only way to become your own boss is to start your own business. The real question is what type of business should you start. Should you start a franchise, consultant, home business, or investing. Home businesses are easier and less costly to start. Also, home businesses can be run very effectively on the Internet.
It is very important for you to select the correct business to be in. I have started several other businesses in the past. None of them were correct for me. Hence, I did not put forth enough energy, effort, etc. to make them successful. Let me give you several examples:
My first business was a business to business selling. I was not a good salesperson nor did I want to be. Thus the business was destined to fail.
The second business was an Internet-based business. I did not put in the funds nor learn enough to market the business. Thus this business was destined to fail.
For this reason, I am stressing that you determine the best business for yourself. As I mentioned earlier, I have decided on a home based business. Why? I want the idea of being able to stay home. A home business will give me the flexibility to be available for my family at any time of the day. If you would like more information on the home business I am running go to www.tmjohnson.us.
As a new entrepreneur, you know there are many things you will have learn:
1.Product or service
2.Clients or customers
Out of these four items, you may find that marketing is hardest to learn and the most expensive.
This article has been written to encourage new entrepreneurs to continue working for their dreams. Your dreams are the rewards of your hard work. If you think like me, you know that your dreams will not come true as long as you work for others. Your reward is definitely worth your full effort and sacrifice. Because of your effort and sacrifice your dreams, rewards, will come true.
We will discuss marketing.
