7 Secrets To Starting A Home Based Business

So, you've decided to start a home based business.
Congratulations, and welcome to the high energy world of
entrepreneurship. I have owned and operated my own home based
business since 1994. While is takes some time to learn, one of
the fastest ways is to role model someone who is achieving their
goals. I learned fast that having a success coach or mentor will
help you succeed at much faster pace. One of the biggest thrills
of owning your own business is the flexibility of your work
time, deciding when to work, go to the beach or spend time with
your family. The financial rewards can be numerous. The nice
thing about owning your own business is you get paid what you
are worth.

Now that you've decided to start your own business, you might
be thinking "How can I become successful, what does it take and
what do I have to do?" These seven secrets will help:

1) set up a separate working area in your home. All you need is
an area that you can maintain your focus in and get your work
done. I remember a person whose home based business was doing 7
figures a year say to me," Ron when I work I work, but when it's
time for family time it's time for family time, you have to
separate the two."

2) Set Goals that you want to achieve in the coming year. Make
your goals crystal clear, put them up on the wall, and set
annual, quarterly and monthly goals. The clearer your goals are
the better chance you have of achieving them. Put up a Vision
Board in your home office, look at it everyday and see yourself
accomplishing your goal.

3) Your third step is marketing. Decide who your target market
is, what is the best way to reach them. Determine the best way
to attract your target market. Who is your ideal client? Invest
at least a week and go to your local library and read some books
on marketing to see what the experts are doing. I myself invest
in one marketing book at month to keep up to date on current
marketing trends.

4) Time management is crucial to the success of your home based
business. We all have 24 hours in a day but how you invest them
will determine your success at the end of the year. A good
thought is to work on your top priorities when you are the
freshest, so you accomplish the most towards your goal.

5) Network with other like minded people. One of the fastest
ways to grow any business is to promote Joint ventures with
people who can introduce you to your best clients. I'll never
forget one of my first joint ventures that resulted in a 6
figure income in 90 days, the feeling and financial rewards are
what make owning your own business exciting.

6) Look the part. If you want to be treated professionally, act
like a professional. Set up a separate bank account for your
business. Have a dedicated phone line and fax line for business.
Outsource the creation of your marketing materials so your
business has that high tech look.

7) Automation is the key. Learn how to become a prospecting
machine. The number one things most successful home based
business has are good high quality leads. Have automatic systems
in place to help you identify and attract your ideal client.
Target marketing is where your profits are at. Focus on adding
value to the life of your clients and you will be reward

These seven secrets will jump start your home based business in
a hurry.
