Should I Be My Own Boss?


Visitors: 386

You may have been drawn in by a web site or perhaps it was a commercial on television that first got your thoughts focused on starting a home business. No matter what it was, when you realize that you can work from home and be your own boss, it is almost impossible to not feel excited.


How about those frustrating work days; is it a co-worker that gives you those negative feelings or is it something that the boss says or does?

Do you realize that you can feel great about how you earn your living?

How does it make you feel when I tell you that anyone can be their own boss?

Keep that excited feeling. . .

- BUT -

Don't run out and quit your job just yet.

To be straightforward, I'd like to make it clear right now that starting and running your own business from home will require you to invest your time and hard-earned money, but, this pays off. If you work hard, it will pay off BIG.


Are you the kind of person that never finishes what you start, or do you frown upon hard work?

If so, then a home business may not be right for you. To successfully become your own boss, you are going to have to get motivated, set goals and follow through with the goals that you’ve set. Hard work is the key to your success.

When you own a home business, your income will be a direct result of your own hard work. Your success will always reflect your efforts…don’t ever forget this.


Every time you make a sale, the immensely exciting feelings you get will pay off more than the money you make from the sale it’s self.

When you can choose your hours, choose your days off, choose your vacation length and choose your salary…this is when your home business has truly paid off.


- BUT -

Being straightforward again, generally, you will start out making a little bit here and a little bit there. Your first month is one of the hardest. As you keep a positive outlook and continue to work on building your business, you will begin to see more sales and you will most likely begin getting feedback from your subscribers and customers.

At six months, if you have been working hard, you will be surprised with how well you are doing and solid ideas will be forming.

After a year of working from home, you will be impressed. Now, this is the time that you are realizing, all of the effort, time and capital that you are putting in is completely worth it.


I’ll keep this short. Be positive, stay motivated, set goals, work until your goals are achieved and don’t let anyone or anything discourage you. Be proud of your accomplishments while you feel the feelings and reap the benefits of your self-built success.
