How To Start Your Home Business, Once and For All, This Year

By Liz Folger

You've thought about it for awhile now. There's a good chance you've rationalized it and said, "Next year I'll get my own business started." Guess what? It's next year, and there's no better time than the present to get your home business started.

So What's The Secret?

Is there a secret to starting and making money with a home business? What about making lots of money? Are there just a few people out there that can be successful? Or can anyone make it happen? In my research of successful home-based business owners, I've found two essential ingredients to success: having a good attitude and lots of determination. Call me crazy, but we can all have these and it isn't going to cost us a dime.

But I Don't Have The Money To Start A Home Business

We are often caught up with the situations we find ourselves in, and see no possible way to start a home biz. Maybe you're broke with barely enough money to survive, let alone to start a home business. You could be a single mom raising your family all by yourself. Maybe you've been burned by one to many work-at-home scams and have given up on the idea that you can make a home business work.

It's easy to tell yourself that you could never start, let alone run a home business because of this or that reason. It's easy to rationalize "Well those people who are super successful, they probably had a bunch of money to start their business with and they probably knew all the right people." Well, that's usually not the case. Any self-employed person will tell you how hard it really was to make their business a success. It always comes down to lots of hard work!

What Are You Focused On?

Many years ago I was teaching my youngest daughter to ride her bike without training wheels. She was riding on the side of the road, and was very nervous about running into the curb. Every time she would start to peddle, she'd immediately look at the curb, and sure enough, she'd head straight for it. I explained to her, "Look at where you want to go, not where you don't want to go." It's funny how when you look straight ahead, the bike goes straight ahead, but when you focus on where you DON'T want to go, you end up there.

The mind is a wonderful machine and it can be our best friend. If you constantly tell yourself that you can be a success, you can make money doing what you love; your mind will find a way to make it happen. A quote by Edward Vernon Rickenbacker says, "I believe that if you think about disaster you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience."

Make Your Dreams Come True - Make Money Doing What You love

When you think about the type of business you want to start, think about what it is you love to do. Try not to focus on a business because you are told about all the money you can make. Instead look at what you enjoy doing. What you are already naturally gifted at doing.

All businesses take time to grow and make money. Even the ones you are told will make you a ton of money. Wouldn't you rather work hard at something you enjoy to make a living?

It's Up To You

No matter where you are coming from, it's your attitude and determination that will ultimately decide the fate of your home business. If you want to work-at-home badly enough, then you need tell yourself on a daily basis that you will find a way to make it happen, and you will be a success at it. Do this and your business will not only get started, but is will also grow and thrive. With a positive attitude and determination you can move mountains!
