Staying in the Game With Your Home Business

Our lives sometimes have unexpected twists and turns and we need to take detours. For instance, it may be that we had determined that we had X number of hours to spend working on our business at the beginning. However, then our hours at our day job were increased.

roll with the punches

Another example might be that our finances may change when something essential had an increase in cost. Now we don’t have the same amount of money for operating our business. Last example, we had a full-time job and have been developing our home business slowly, part-time. We then find out that the day job will be eliminated and we need to find a new full-time position in a short span of time.

Eventually the idea is to devote more time to our home business and make it our primary source of income. Be sure you have the replacement income secured first, if that is your plan. It takes time normally and logically to develop a new business. The point is that either way, don’t quit. Don’t give up just because your plan has to change when life interferes! Make a new plan. The point is not to make your home business expendable. You wouldn’t/couldn’t just throw your day job away if your situation changed.

Many don’t really take their home business seriously. As such they never really succeed to earn substantial (adequate) income. If a million different things take precedence over doing the work necessary to develop your business, you are obviously not sticking to any plan where your business is concerned. You do need a plan and maybe a few alternate plans just in case.

Analyze what your expenses are and how much money you have to live. Whatever the balance is, that is what you have to work with to start a business. Remember you have to consider your survival FIRST. Never speculate with your living expenses like the mortgage. Everything is a gamble, but you can make it so you don’t just waste your time and money even if there is little of both.

You can do this any way. If you are serious and it boils down to few resources to work with, you will still find a way to stash $5-10 every time you have money. Just think about what is more important and it should usually be your business. Just ask yourself if going on a trip is more important than your idea to start a home business. Think about creating something that will give you more income in the future so that you don’t need to worry so much about spending money.

Home Biz Start Up – Use Your Problems as a Punching Bag

We all agree we would rather ‘not make waves’ and have everything in our lives running as smoothly as possible. Almost like what they call ‘living on easy street’. However things can happen at any time to change that perception. Problems may arrive at any time that could impact your health, your family, your home, career, or finances.

roll with the punches

Of course it would be best for all concerned if there were none of these dramas. However, obviously we have to learn to ‘roll with the punches’ whenever they do. Depending on to what degree there are problems, we need to be prepared ahead of time as much as we can analyze and determine.

Sometimes people just need a challenge. Maybe it is just too much easy street that can become a rut. Once in a while, we need something to push us in order that we make some extra effort. Again it is hoped it is never anything serious.

… but did you know that for some people something extremely negative can really push them into a whole new realm of optimism? You would be very surprised how the ‘fight or flight’ instinct can come into play. There are a few different personalities that may be relevant here and each one may respond differently.

Here is a real simple example: If you are a positive person in general, and the problem is your home business. Maybe you notice that your sales are tanking. First you need to find out why and make some changes to your operations and/or budget (business operating account).

You jump right on it and manage to beat it – you may try several things until you see the trend has changed after a while. You keep on pounding it until you are ‘home free’. Good job!

The other type of person figures ‘oh well’ it’s no big deal the few dollars I ever made with this’. They just leave it as it is and let it sink deeper into a black hole. Eventually they terminate the program and/or the website. No big deal except you may have just eliminated a source of income that someday could have been substantial. Not to mention wasted any time or money you spent on it in the past.

Oh well it is only money that could have been yours.
