Three Stupid Proof Tips For A Successful Home Business

Having your own successful home business is without a doubt
a dream come true.

You are the master of your own destiny. You have the freedom
to enjoy life.

You can take off when ever you want and if you have prepared
correctly, you will still make money while at play.

To accomplish the goal of a care free and debt free life
you need to follow these home business tips for maximum results.

Home Business Tip #1 – Make sure you have a great selling
product with a high profit margin.

You simply will not be able to make a living by offering
products that you only make a ten dollar profit on.

You need to make atleast $35.00 to $100.00 profit per sale
to actually sustain your home business and earn an income.

The best type of product to make this kind of profit from is
simple “how-to” information products on specialized topics.

Home Business Tip #2 – You need to automate your home business
in order to save you time so you can enjoy the benefits.

Use autoresponders so you can upload ten to fifteen pre written
messages to send out to potential leads.

Use Elance to outsource some of your clerical duties to others
for a small fee so you do not have to do them.

This way you can concentrate on making money and if you want
to, you can take time off and still be making profits.

Home Business Tip #3 – Be certain that your sales material is
converting for you.

This includes your sales letters, advertisements, articles,
and any other form of advertising you are using.

If your sales material is top notch, then it will do all the
work for you by converting leads to customers so you can sit
back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your success.

Ten Top Business Tips From Your Strategic Thinking Business Coach

Recently I was preparing for a strategic business coaching presentation to a group of business owners and senior management staff members. I had been asked by the host to make sure I had a list of ten top business tips to pass along to the attendees. Reflecting back over the past several years, I tried to recall what I would select as ten of those top tips. After remembering some of the most highly successful people I have worked with as a strategic thinking business coach and/or an executive coach, I thought of what they had told me were some of the most impactful tips I had shared with them. Here are the ten top business tips that I recalled as having the biggest impact on past clients.

1. Develop a clearly focused and defined vision statement for your business or organization. This vision statement should be a description of the image of your business that you feel very compelled to achieve.

2. Articulate and teach your business vision throughout your business or organization to inspire others. Commit to integrating and implementing whatever is necessary throughout the company to reach your business vision.

3. Demonstrate your passion for your business vision in all that you do every day in your business.

4. Develop a Strategic Plan and a Strategic Action Plan to reach your business vision.

5. Acknowledge and appreciate your staff, clients, customers, and all your stakeholders on a daily basis. Be generous with your verbal and written expressions of thank you.

6. Consistently over-deliver on what is promised and provide added value to your clients and customers.

7. Develop, adopt and strictly adhere to a code of strong business ethics.

8. Celebrate successes along the way to achieving your business vision.

9. Always observe proper business etiquette and exhibit impeccable business manners.

10. Seek outside advice through mentoring and/or coaching to provide a sounding board and to provide guidance and coaching on some of the tough decisions you will need to make to reach your business vision.

Home Based Business Tips

I woke up this morning and did not want to get out of bed. My mind kept telling me that I was better off getting some rest. If I slept a little while longer, I would do much better work. I earned the time off because I had a tough week. I face my mind every single day, as I am sure that so many of you do as well. In the past, my mind won and I wound up procrastinating and not doing the work that would ensure that I achieve my most important goals. However, that only cost me frustration and did not allow me to achieve my goals in my Home Based Business.

Now, I have implemented the following tips to make sure I get done what I need to get done every day to achieve my goals.

Below are some Home Based Business tips that you can implement to make sure that your mind does not take you out of the game in the beginning –

1. Get up the same time every day – This lets your mind know that you are serious and your success is non-negotiable. You should even get up the same time on weekends and days off. Even if you get up and go back to bed after working for an hour or so, you will be better off.

2. Do Something Physical first thing in the morning – If you do something physical, your mind immediately knows that you are serious and are not going to be stopped.

3. Do the Hardest Thing for the Day First – Whenever I do not take on my hardest task in my Home Based Business first thing in the morning, I wind up worrying about it. If I attack the hardest task first thing, then I accomplish a few things. My first task is complete and I don’t have to worry about it. The benefits are great.

If you are stuck with the “I Don’t Want To” Blues in your business, these tips should help you be more successful going forward. Go out there and conquer your mind.
