As you may know by now, I've been a stay at home mom for quite some time now.  I've tried my hand at a couple different endeavors before now.  I can finally say that after 7 years of being a stay at home mom and dabbling here and there for rainy day money, I have finally found something real. But more important than what works, I have found the how.

What it takes to work from home

  • Consistency.  Working from home is a career choice.  You must constantly find time to do whatever you are choosing as your work from home business.  Make a schedule and stick to it.  If you choose 2 – 3 actions to do daily, you will see your business flourish before your eyes.  Completing small daily tasks build up to long lasting victories.
  • Continuous training.  Always seek to improve yourself and your business. Even top earners attend trainings and read books and articles to improve themselves and businesses. They understand that knowledge fuels growth.  Growth is evidence of life. You want your business to grow.  You want your business to LIVE!
  • Personal responsibility.  You have to take responsibility of every win and loss.  In home business, you are the creator of your own successes and failures.  No one else is to blame for your amount of effort and dedication… or lack thereof.
  • Perseverance.  You absolutely must stay committed to your end goal.  Regardless of any bumps in the road, you can never give up on your dreams.  120626_OPS_WorkingFromHome_Powell.jpg.CROP.original-original[1]

And now that you know what it takes, here's what to do with it.

3 Step Formula to Success Working From Home

#1 – Understand the game.  To master anything, you have to study it.  Go on a fact finding mission to learn what it takes to succeed as well as why others have failed.  Who has been successful in this area before you?  Follow them and if possible seek their advise.  It's okay to mimic someone that's on a level that you aspire to be on as long you do so as yourself, with integrity.  If you want to be where they are, does it not make sense to do what they've done?

#2 – Look for opportunities.  This is where our mindset makes all the difference.  Where there's a problem, there's an opportunity. Successful people are natural problem solvers.  Look for problems to solve and be the solution.  How does your product or service solve the problem? If there's already an attempted solution to the problem, how can you improve it and put your unique spin on it?  Once you have your idea or product, you should find a coach or mentor that can help you devise a plan to capitalize on it. Take in as much as you can from your coach and never stop learning!

#3 – Formulate the game plan.  What's your end goal for what you want to achieve, and how are you going to get there?  What will be your daily consistent actions to move you toward your end goal?  Set benchmarks along the way.  This will be your roadmap to success.  Don't overthink it.  As you get better, the roadmap will change.  You'll be able to avoid latter detours and delays.

Although my work from home preference is in the network marketing field, this 3 step formula is purposely generic to fit any work from home opportunity.  Apply these simple steps and watch your business explode with success.

Peace and Love.
