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.

Not Everything for Everyone

Many very good people out there with all the right components: they have a Dream, there are willing to change their lives in order to achieve their dreams, they will commit time and treasure, and they are coachable.
The only problem is that they haven’t seen the right opportunity.
I’m no more likely to be an Avon rep. than I am to sell Jewelry or Home Party products.
Look up them up on www.businessfromhome.org and you’ll see these and thousands of others.
I think that despite the concept from up line that you need to do one thing and do it well, that
having more than one bullet in your pistol gives you options without cross recruiting or encouraging
your prospect to join multiple things.
Just don’t compete against yourself.
By that I mean don’t pitch two nutritional companies. Don’t do Avon and Mary Kay.
But be willing to find your prospects needs, want, desires, and background and offer him the one
that appeals to him and coach him in the basics of network marketing. Connect him with the right
up line. And remember to follow-up and follow often.


Well, I got your attention didn’t I? But seriously. Yesterday Kathy looked in the mirror while getting ready to go to her water aerobics and said with her arms up in the air, “hey, check out these muscles!” And yes, she saw herself with the view I have seen changing as we work the Favao lifestyle reset. Both of us changing for the better. And that’s the point. Look at the person in the mirror and ask yourself if you are changing for the better? Whether it’s the physique or the attitude. Health is a constant striving for a better you. Just be sure to look at yourself with the bare naked truth. You can fool some of the people some of the time. But if you fool yourself, you are a fool yourself.

The Wall

Well, sure enough, yesterday I didn’t write anything although I started. Call it writer’s block or the Wall, or fear of the unknown, or the plateau. It paralyzed me from moving forward. Quite by accident this morning another wall that has been facing me this past few days fell down and I realized how that happened and what makes the wall get out of the way. And what I must do when faced with those challenges.

The current wall that fell was the, for me, magic number 210. 210 poounds to be exact and this morning I got on the scale and there it was staring me in the face. 209! I really didn’t expect the new number, and I won’t worry if tomorrow after some SuperBowl fun it’s up a little. I know it’s not insurmountable. I can blast through that barrier. 210 is significant for me because I haven’t been below that number for many years. Might even be ten years, but I know it’s a least five years. I know it’s possible and thanks to all the encouragement from my online support team at Favao on Facebook, I kept following the program. Hydration increased a little yesterday, excercise has increased a little yesterday and I took all my supplements and all my meals. And voila, 209!

So the lesson from my lifestyle reset is a simple one. Whether it is losing weight, deciding to blog daily, or making another phone call or contact, just keep doing what you know has been succesfull for others before. Keep your belief in the team, the process, and those who care about you the most.
