Why Small Steps Are Important In A Home Based Business

If you’re not seeing the results that you’re dreaming of because you don’t really know what’s important in a home based business, then this blog post is for you. Sometimes team members contact me with questions that totally baffle me. They have been part of the team for several months and still have the questions of a newbie. I have no intention to judge them because I don’t care if they are motivated or not (I do what I do to achieve what I want to achieve, with or without them) BUT the keyword here is RESPONSIBILITY. If you’re not able to determine what’s important in a home based business, you will not do the effort to take the small steps that are required.

3 Things That Are Important In A Home Based Business

1. Training

You can’t learn everything in once. You have to understand that there’s a learning curve in anything you attempt. Sometimes people say that something doesn’t work, while in reality they simply didn’t make it work. How many times have you heard people saying this: if I only knew. If you don’t know how, you can’t make it work.

Sometimes people ask me to talk to someone about the business, while they themselves still don’t even have a clue how it works. They have never even watched one webinar and therefore can’t answer the most simple questions. Then they expect me to explain people how it works for them? It’s not that I’m not willing to help of course. BUT come on, you are RESPONSIBLE for knowing how your home based business opportunity works. If you don’t want to learn, you will never achieve any kind of success.

2. Action

Furthermore, if you tell people that this “thing you’re doing” doesn’t require any work, you are setting yourself and them up for failure. People who follow you will do exactly what you tell them: NOTHING. Is this what you want? A team only existing of people who hope that you will do everything in their place?

3. The Power Of The Opportunity

You have to understand the power of the opportunity first. A few examples: people who work a home based business don’t have to loan money to get started, there’s no other business model that gives you such a low-risk opportunity to make money, you can build it as fast or a slow as you want…

Taking Small Steps Is Important In A Home Based Business, But…

Sometimes people don’t ask specific questions and as a result they never fully grasp the power of the home based business opportunity. This can be solved in several different ways. I’m also not that type of person who chases people so that they would understand how important it is to get trained. I have learned that there are many people out there who don’t really want to be financially free and it are mostly the same people who refuse to follow simple advice.

Here are several ways to help people with taking the small steps that are important in a home based business:

  • Create an online group (not just used for training, but also for recognition). When people see the amount of people who achieve tremendous success, it could inspire others to take action.
  •  Teach people how they can set a micro goal, so that they don’t get overwhelmed. Many people never really get started simply because they don’t know where to begin.
  • I love this Einstein quote: “everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” I personally believe that people can do almost anything if they are willing to learn. You don’t have to be a genius to make money from home. BUT don’t expect everyone to learn just as fast as you. Some people dive into it from day 1 while others need several weeks to even decide whether or not it’s something from them.

You have to understand that the teacher can’t force the student to understand something if the student isn’t open for it. Before the encyclopedias people had to storage everything in their mind. Before the internet people had to open up an encyclopedia and look where the information is. Now they just surf to Wikipedia or Google it. The digital age offers so many fantastic and easy ways to learn, so use them in your advantage.
