The next thing you’ll want to do, if you are just starting out, is to organize your learning. For example, one week you might spend time learning AdWords, and the next week you can focus on article marketing tactics and strategies. Another week you can learn list building and how to set up an autoresponder and market to a list etc. Doing this is almost like following an organized ‘classroom schedule’ and it will make your learning much more progressive, so you are able to take action faster.
Unfortunately, for most people, they are unprepared for retirement. Financial planning is crucial in reaching your goals of retiring comfortably. But having say that, how does one go about writing a financial plan without any formal education?
Have a posture of success. Play the game as if you’ve already won. Even if you haven’t done anything yet, you can still position yourself at the top through comp plans and associating with other leaders who are at the top. That posture of success will also have an impact on where you are coming from. Imagine this, your doorbell rings, it’s the mail-man with your residual earnings check for the month. You tell your partner or spouse that you’re going to the bank (who is now home with you as well), you get in your new car and drive away with the peace that everything is going to be Ok. It’s a good feeling and it’s just fine to know that you have the potential to create whatever your family needs.
I took a relatively expensive course from a well know trader. I spent weeks studying the material and practicing the trade methods. After a few months, I decided to drop the trading techniques I leaned in this course. It was impossible to make consistent profits as the techniques were just too open for interpretation.
This is why the failure rate is so high in this industry. People are there for the emotions not the business. People so often get caught up in the feel good side of the industry they forget why they got started in the first place. For most people they saw an opportunity to make some extra money from home. This is not to say that there are sometimes legitimate reasons to look for a new business. Sometimes there are. The problem is that when you make the move to a new type of business you take yourself with you.
Another superb home business marketing strategy is using word of mouth. Word of mouth is the oldest form of communication and still works very well. Tell everyone you know about your home business and you will gain prospects. Plus, your friends, family and acquaintances will talk to people in their circle and before you know it, you will have many prospects. The key here is to focus on the prospects that show interest or are engaged. Do not waist your time on the rest, it will lead you nowhere.
Aim for “easier” jobs to begin with, like outbound telemarketing. Most of the ads I see for those jobs don’t require experience, they will teach you everything you need to know. Granted, these are usually commission-based jobs, but sometimes they do offer a small salary too. If anything, you could work this job for a few months to get experience, and then apply for other jobs later.
