Who You are Involved With is More Important Than the Business You are In
Most people have no idea how to operate a business of any kind not just a home business. As children we are told to go to school, pass exams and get a good… JOB! That is exactly the path most of us start on, get a job, work hard, work long hours and try to get a promotion so we can work more hours and we hope make more money.
We do that for 10, 20 or 30 years and then realise that we are never going to get ahead. That is when the idea that our own business could change our life starts to dawn. We have learned to be model employees and most of us have done all our lives.
Leadership is absolutely vital. If you can find someone who has run a home business successfully and you have a chance to work with them, seize the chance with both hands. Become comfortable with them before you get started.
What should you look for? Look for somebody who knows what they are doing. When you ask questions are they comfortable or uncomfortable? Do they have a system you can plug in to and have immediate success?
One of the reasons many people fail in home businesses is that they do not understand the importance of finding the right person with whom to work. They should not blame anyone else for their failures, but if they had associated themselves with people who really knew what they were doing and who would give them guidance the results may have been very different.
Maybe they would have failed anyway, but there is little doubt that working with successful people will reduce the learning curve and save a lot of time and money. Only you can ensure your own success, but to find the right person or persons with whom to work and listening to them, gives an enormous advantage over most people trying to run their home business.
