Is a Home Business Right For You?

Every morning as people wake up and make the commute to work,
many dream of the day when they will finally work for


Every time the boss lets someone know that they must
give up their weekend plans for the good of the company, people
contemplate the benefits of being the owner of their own

Are you one of these people?

If you are, it is important to ask yourself some very important
questions before you make the uncertain leap into

Many dream of the benefits of home business ownership, but few
take into account the sacrifices that must be made to bring the
dream to fruition. Please don’t make this mistake yourself.

You must approach home business ownership with your eyes wide
open. Ask yourself the important questions, and more
importantly, answer your own questions openly and honestly.

Are you the type of person who relishes every chance to gather
around the water cooler for social interaction?

If so, then home business ownership may not be the right
decision for you.

Instead, if you feel that you can be quite content sitting alone
at your desk; speaking only to clients and really minding your
own home business, then you might have what it takes to succeed
as a home business entrepreneur.

If you feel at ease with your own company and don’t need a dozen
coworkers milling around your desk, then you, too, could savor
the freedoms that will allow you and your family, to live the
lifestyle you know you want and deserve.

Self-motivation is the key to success when you start a
home-based business. You need to possess the ability to push
yourself ahead. Your drive and determination will be reinforced
with every new sale.

The level of success that you will achieve greatly depends on
the time and effort you are willing to plow into your new home
business. Your organization, planning and marketing skills, will
all be put into practice when you embark on your liberating
journey from employee, to being your own boss. In fact, you will
be the wearer of many hats and gain a wealth of business
experience along the way, when you finally make that commitment
to work at home.

You will now be the boss. Are you truly able to work
independently? Do you have the drive; the tenacity, to persevere
with your home based business? Will you be able to invest the
necessary time to nurture it, to watch it grow and see it
through, from germination to full, glorious bloom? When you’re
the boss, you are responsible for the success of your home
business, from A to Z, from disappointments to victory.

When you work at home, it will empower you to achieve many
things you were unable to do when you were stuck working for
that tyrant boss. Remember him? He’s the guy that wouldn’t let
you take time off when your baby was sick…the same guy that
called you in to work on Thanksgiving Day.

A home business means that you can take good care of your family
and make money from home, simultaneously. You will have the best
of both worlds! Just think–no more dirty laundry piling up–you
can do it while you work. No more scurrying around at the last
minute searching for a babysitter either. And no more worrying
about getting fired; you’ll be the boss!

Stay positive and focused on your home based business, even if,
when sales aren’t up to par, you get occasional negative remarks
or derogatory comments from people with stuffy, dead-end jobs.
Ignore their cutting words and bear in mind that success is the
best revenge! Keep your admirable, positive attitude at the
forefront and show them what you’re made of!

Next Post will be the review of some of the businesses with low initial cost.

What do you see in Costa Rica?

Common question for me when I tell people that I would love to live there.  What do I see in Costa Rica?   Well, let me tell you…

It’s the beauty of the place for starters.  Volcanic mountains with some activity like Hawaii.  It’s beautiful beaches like most caribbean islands.  It’s tranquility.  It’s happiness.  It’s adventure!

I’m hardly an expert on the place and I have a tendency to be impulsive but a ten year plus history of saying that someday I would like to live there is hardly impulsive.  I’ve been there.  I’ve looked at real estate in different provinces.  My preference is the mountainous northern Pacific area, although some friends recently stayed in the Manuel Antonio area in Puntarenas.  I haven’t seen that area yet, so it’s next. manuel antonio[ Photo by: D.Convertini]

Currently, I am vicariously enjoying a book by Nadine Hays Pisani that could my eye in the Amazon Books site:  Happier Than A Billionaire: Quitting My Job, Moving to Costa Rica, and Living the Zero Hour Work Week

This is the first book in the series and I fully intend to do more than just show you pictures of pretty beaches over the next few blog posts.

I also want to explain why I’m learning internet commerce and creating multiple streams of income.  There are some residency requirements involving income in order to live there and I don’t speak enough Spanish to pass their medical boards.  Although, this too might change.  I currently think that I may wish a brick and mortar business related to health care or lifestyle improvement, but you never know until you actual get both feet in the water (or sand) and just do it.

Stay tuned and like and comment.  Appreciate suggestions too.


Multiple Streams of Income

Multiple Streams

There have been many different people describing their being focused on just one business at a time as the reason for not taking a look at other things.  I find this almost humorous were it not for the fact that such as approach can, in fact, be detrimental to financial independence.

That approach means that one can’t walk and talk at the same time.  That listening to music presupposes that it is impossible to drive a card or work other tasks at the same time.  Both must be dependent upon different areas in the brain to allow simultaneous tasking.

Likewise, to say that when applying the 10 foot rule to talking with people you rule out the possibility that one person may not find appealing a product based networking opportunity because you are only interested in selling a service based opportunity.  Or consider the possibility of an affiliate based income opportunity when you are focused on a binary networking business.

The old saying that different strokes for different folks is as true today as it was in the past.  It is for that reason that I feel it is essential to have more than one opportunity to share.  Business is built on relationships and to exclude from a business relationship a person who might be perfect for one and not for the other between two opportunities is absurd.

So put a couple of different things together that you feel comfortable with.  My personal examples are a health business, ASEA, that merges well with my past medical history and networking with Xango.  I’m also looking at a company with a telemedicine aspect to it.  Lyoness is a no brainer because the cashback is a loyalty program everyone can do.  Gold and silver programs are different as much as they are alike.  The commonality is, however, that saving in currency is doomed.  Business on the internet with some people is a hot commodity.  The Stage-It  web business is able to promote all of the above and more.  Then there is always the Matt Lloyd, MOBE, my online business empire, which is for the higher income seeker.

All of these examples do not detract from one another.  They complement each other.

Many of today’s millionaires attribute their wealth and success to having multiple streams of income. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.” Nothing could be truer in this day and age. Never rely on just one source for your future. If you lose your job today, or the business you own doesn’t thrive, what will you do? Find what you are passionate about, what you really love, and use that to solve a problem or to fill a need.

If you’d like to see what I’m doing to insure for my family’s future, take a look here at KnoMe. KnoMe will work alongside any existing job or business, helping promote you first, and then your product or service.

And the coolest part – you get paid for sharing. Not selling, not convincing, not recruiting, JUST sharing…….can you imagine if you’d gotten paid to share Facebook???

I would appreciate your thoughts and sharing.

Thoughts on Labor (Day)

When comparing my thoughts about labor then and now, there are similarities and differences. We’ve passed our Expected Date of Correction ( EDC) and we are definitely over due. Our choices are to try to induce (QE3) and get things moving. But the usual stimulus plan isn’t going to work because the economy isn’t ripe. Besides, patient doesn’t want it. So before we admit that we don’t really don’t have a plan, and before letting this go on any longer, the O’B(ama) is probably going to call on the anesthesiologist ( Bernake) and give us some kind of special medicine and bring the new baby on. Labor Day from a different perspective.

You Are Your Business

Interesting day yesterday. A few years ago, before resuming my networking, I posted my resume but left it private. Last week I made it public and received an interview with a prominent financial services firm in Northbrook. Very different world out there. Computerized job interviews are totally new for me. Competition is tough. Less than forty position annually for the entire country. Well the good news is this rusty brain got through the first screening interview and on to the next one hopefully soon enough.
It’s significant that some of the questions on the interview were easily answer because of some people skills learned in NM.
