“Desire is the key to motivation, but it's the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek. ” - Mario Andretti

It is entirely possible that you are reading this article because you are interested in developing a home-based business of your own. You either stumbled across this article or you conducted a search and now you are investigating the possibilities associated with a business of your own that can be managed from the comfort of home.

I would like to tell you I have a magic formula that will enable you to realize your goals, but the truth is the path for any entrepreneur is a unique, one-of-a-kind path. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to home-based business success.

That being said, there are four common characteristics to every path you might chose to follow in home-based business pursuits.

1. Motivation – One of the traits of every home-based business owner is they are highly motivated to succeed. They exude confidence and are willing to put forth effort even when it seems the task ahead seems all but impossible.

2. Passion – Home-based business owners need to identify the things they are passionate about. It does not good to begin a home-based business you could care less about. If you have a passion for what you are doing it will be evident to your clients and it will permeate every area of your business.

3. Eager to learn – Home-based business owners will not know everything there is to know about their business, but they will be intent on learning all they can about the product or service they are going to be promoting to the public at large. They will also seek to learn as much as they can about business practices and marketing techniques.

4. Commitment – Successful home-based businesses will demonstrate their motivation and passion by remaining committed to providing the best in customer service and follow through techniques. If an individual has difficulty sticking with something, they are likely not going to be as successful as they could be in a home-based business.

You will notice that this article did not refer to highly specific techniques. The purpose of this article is to reinforce the values of personal commitment and the internal desire to succeed in a home-based business. These traits are every bit as important as the techniques of selling your product or service.

“When a man feels throbbing within him the power to do what he undertakes as well as it can possibly be done, this is happiness, this is success. ” - Orison Swett Marden
