7 Steps to Starting Your Own Business

What are your dreams? Have you ever just dreamed of things and wondered what if, and why not? Ever dream of starting your own business? Maybe from the time you and your friend had a lemonade stand, in your front yard, as a kid growing up; you always wondered what it would be like, and if you could be successful at running your own business.

With our struggling economy and people trying to make ends meet, everyone is looking at anything they can do to increase their income. Maybe a second job or even a change of careers, there is nothing that is left off the table.

What about starting a business? Now unless you have at least a quarter of a million dollars laying around and about 60 to 80 hours a week that you don’t know what to do with, starting your own business is totally out of the question today, unless…. you are thinking of a home business opportunity.

Did you know that home based businesses or network marketing; is a 114 billion dollar a year industry? That’s billion with a B. When most people think of network marketing they think of companies like Amway and Avon, but let’s take a look at these businesses.

Did you know that Amway is the largest company in the world today, using the network marketing vehicle? Its sales are in excess of 8 billion dollars a year?

Avon has sales over 10 billion dollars a year and is the oldest network marketing company around. It was founded back in 1886. Who says network marketing won’t last. These are just two of over five thousand companies fighting for a little piece of that 114 billion dollar pie.

Donald Trump owns his own network marketing company and Robert Kiyosaki says the network marketing is the business of the future. Let me give you seven reasons why you might want to consider why network marketing might be a place to start looking if you need extra income or if you ever dreamed about starting your own business. This is not going to be for everyone, but it just might be for you.

1. The Cost
Like I said, to start your own business, you will need a good chunk of change to even get your feet off the ground. You can get into most network marketing businesses with a minimal investment of five hundred dollars or less.

2.Time Investment
With any business, you have to put your time and energies into getting things going. Network marketing is no different. If I was a doctor, attorney, or baker, my business would be me. I am the business. If something happens to me, the business closes. With network marketing, my network is my business.
Yes, it takes time to build, but once it is built, my business will continue to pay me a residual income, no matter what I do, because I am leveraging the efforts of my network that I have built, to create a continuous income stream for me. I don’t have to be there 70 or 80 hours a week. After all, isn’t that what it means to “own your own business”?

3. The Product
Many people will get into a network marketing business without putting any real thought behind it. You must have a product that is marketable for the times, a process for duplication, and a company that has the leadership and training to back you up.

4. May The Force of the Network Be With You
The only income stream you will ever be able to generate in most businesses, is when you make a sale of your product or service. In the corporate world, I want to step on you and dominate you so I can get to the top. You are not a friend; you are an obstacle that is in my way of getting to where I want to be.
Not so in network marketing. I want to help you succeed, because your success is my success. We all benefit when the network team succeeds. I am building a network force of individuals that will leverage their efforts and abilities to create an income stream that will continue to come in every single month. Through duplication, this is done over and over throughout the entire network.

5. Create Your Own Schedule
This is your business and you can work it around your life and create your own hours. Many people start their new home based business on a part time basis. With the power of the Internet, many businesses can be taken with you were ever you go. If you have a lap-top and a smart phone, you are ready to go.

6. Learn Perseverance
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Give yourself a proper time schedule of two to five years. I see so many people that don’t do their homework and jump into something, and after three months they quit. Nobody is going to be successful in any business after only three months, and if this is your first attempt at starting a business, there is going to be some things that only time and experience will teach you.

7. Roll Up Your Sleeves and Get To Work
Work as hard as you want. Remember; treat your business like a business and it will pay you like a business. Treat it like a hobby and it will pay you like a hobby. You can’t just sit on your hands and expect your business to grow. Running your own business is going to take a lot of work and failures, before you’ll ever learn how to fly, but only those who refuse to quit will ever make it to the winners circle.

In closing, I would like to suggest a network marketing business, that has the perfect product, the leadership and training to support all, and it is in a niche all by it self. A 100 billion dollar a year niche and we are the only ones doing this through the vehicle of the network marketing industry.That’s 100 billion with a B. Eleven million every hour. There are lots of customers in our market.
