Home Based Business: Internet Marketing, Can You Be Successful?

Mar 31, 2008
Everyone has a desire for financial freedom. If you are like me you have done all the things you have been told to try and create that financial independence. Here is the blueprint we've all been told to follow since high school:

* Go to school and work hard.

* Develop good habits.

* Get a job in the real world.

* Keep improving in your job and through your hard work, hopefully your boss will give you a raise.

* If you are talented and play the political games correctly you will keep moving up the corporate ladder and other people will determine your value to the company and decide what you are worth to the company.

* As you move up the corporate ladder you will be given more money and responsibility and you will have less and less time for the things that are truly important. i.e. Your family and your health.

* You will do this for your whole adult life, and through proper investing, you will hopefully retire at 65 and be able to live out your final 20+ years. Hopefully you have not missed too many little league games and dance recitals that you are kids had along the way.

Obviously the above plan works really well for corporate executives. From a financial perspective these folks do much better than most. However, most of those captains of industry trade off financial success for their health and family life. In addition, unless you are in a particular career where you have direct control of your earnings, you really have to rely that other people will recognize your value to the company and give you a raise. As you move up though, you are making trade offs with your time and family usually suffers.

So the question is how can we all achieve financial success and independence without the tradeoff of spending less time with our family? Is there a way to do this without having to rely on other people to recognize your value, without having to worry about whether your company will have a lay off, or if your corporate executives are perpetuating an accounting fraud and your retirement savings evaporates in the blink of an eye?

The answer is, yes. There is absolutely a way to create a home based business and be successful. Ways that I would say 99% of people are capable of achieving. But first you have to decide. You have to really decide and get determined that you are ready to take control of your life and your financial independence and build a home based business. You need to believe that the only thing preventing you from this is yourself and then commit yourself to success. Once you make the commitment that you and you alone CAN create financial independence for yourself with a home based business you will achieve it.

Isaac Newton's first law of motion is an object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This law of motion also applies to human behavior. Once you have become tired of having others dictate your worth, and made the commitment to do something about it (an object in motion) then you need to take action immediately. If you wait, you become an object at rest and you tend to stay at rest and nothing changes. Procrastination and fear will cripple you. Take action.

You are probably asking yourself how you should take action to determine what the right home based business is for you. There are a lot of things you can do. Here is my story and what I did to find the right home based business for me. I spent years and years hating the fact that I followed the corporate outline. Deep down I believed that I needed to build something for myself and be my own boss. I researched different programs. I first looked into real estate investing and although I believe it's a great way to build wealth, ultimately fear got the best of me. I came to the conclusion that for me, those "no money down" programs really did not fit my personality. I was concerned that I would end up holding a mortgage on a property that I couldn't rent or resell, and that the risk was too great. It turns out that may have been the right decision for me based upon the sub prime market implosion.

However, I did not give up. I made a list of my skills, amount of time and money I could invest part-time building a home based business while I maintained my corporate job. I had made the commitment to change and stayed as an object in motion. I continued to research and read. Ultimately I came to the conclusion that the fastest, least expensive, and least time consuming way to begin a home based business and build financial freedom for myself was through internet marketing.

Internet marketing allows me to get in at low investment entry point, provides multiple business lines in which you can actually make money so you are not reliant on just one product or service, did not require that I buy any inventory or have my own product, and providing so many different methods of marketing that in my estimation the only thing that would prevent success is lack of commitment, patience and perseverance.

So, like the title of this article I believe everyone has the skill set to be your own boss and I believe that internet marketing is the vehicle to do just that. However, internet marketing is not for everyone. Internet marketing is only for people who are tired of not being in control of your earnings, wealth and financial independence and have made the commitment to change. It is only for people who will be patient. Internet marketing is for people patient enough to take the time to work at this business. People willing to study and to build a long term business by being smart and tactical in their approach will be successful. You may not be an overnight success with a home based business but I submit there is no such thing in ANY line of business or ANYTHING of any value in life. Internet marketing is only for people with perseverance. It's for people who have made up their mind to be successful, who understand that failure is not an option and that in the end, they will succeed.

When I made this commitment to build a home based business I looked at many different internet marketing programs and concluded that Plug In Profit was by far the most comprehensive internet marketing program available today. It provides step by step instruction on how to get started with a minimal upfront investment. In addition to the step by step instructions, their support is phenomenal. You get multiple business streams, multiple ways to market to get people to your site and make money, and a 30 day, step by step instruction guide on what you should be doing. You won't ever feel that you are out on your own with no support. You will get plenty from the program, as well as links to informative websites, free material and newsletters, etc.

By spending the time to read this article deep down I'm sure you have already made the commitment to change and take control. Now all you need to do is follow Newton's law of motion and stay in motion. Since you have already taken the first step, I urge you to take the second and do your research on Plug in For Profits. I wish you success and financial independence.
