Well, I have some GOOD and BAD news for you. The BAD news is that it is not as easy as it sounds to setup and build a successful home business with a strong passive income.

Have you considered the following areas?
1. How do you build a pipeline of endless customers and prospects for your business?

2. Do you use offline or online or both methods for advertising?

3. How large should your marketing budget be if you want to make $50,000 or more a month?

4. How do you effectively follow-up to market with your prospects?

5. What are the basic regulations you must follow in order to run your business legitimately?

6. How do you leverage your time with a cheap personal assistant who can work for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week?

7. What do you do with the money you make so that you can reinvest that money to work for you?

8. What system must be put in place in order for you to duplicate and train your team to succeed?

9. How do you leverage your time and resources with others so you are not working 70 hours a week?

The GOOD news is that you will find all the techniques and latest innovations on building a home business can be learnt step-by-step. Everyone finds it difficult in the beginning. I did it for a few years and my sponsors did it as well, but many of them never bothered to mention that. We just casually forgot. Sometimes it can be easy to forget that everyone starts at somewhere.

The most valuable piece of advice is to become a successful entrepreneur is to increase your personal value to others and to the world.
Yes, that is it. Increase your personal value.

The more you help people get what they want, the more you will get what you want

Did you ever consider that the amount of money you make is a direct measure of your worth to society?
Well, it is almost true. If you want to increase your income, you have got to increase your value to others by providing solutions to their problems. Once you do that, money will start to come in like you wouldn't believe. Business becomes a piece of cake.

So, how do you get people to contact and pursue you? It all comes down to Social Dynamics. You see, people have a subconscious attraction to others who convey leadership qualities. They like to work with, learn from, and buy from proven leaders who can offer real value.

It is a biological/instinctual trigger that evolved thousands of years ago to keep you alive. By nature, people are pack animals. A part of us wants to associate ourselves with leaders because we gain a portion of that power through that association alone which increases our chances for survival. This subconscious attraction to others is still present but expressed though different activities such as business.

If you want to make it big in entrepreneurship or for that matter anything in life, you must learn to convey those qualities, and eventually BECOME a Leader.

People do not join a business, they join 'YOU'.
Nevertheless, this becoming a leader is a state of mind which is not given or bestowed upon you by others. Rather, they reflect your personal beliefs about yourself. It simply means that you are going to struggle a bit as you become comfortable in your new role as a leader. Every leader has been there. It is a process that you just have to deal with, so don't get discouraged.

Belief comes first. That belief leads to certain actions and behaviors. Those actions and behaviors are going to be awkward in the beginning, but given dedication, time and affirmation, those actions and behaviors will turn you into the type of person that has the ability to attract people to you. In essence, when you increase your value to others, you never have to convince or sell anything. People approach you. You become the Hunted instead of the Hunter.

So, how do you become a leader?

The best thing to do is find people in your life who are leader and start emulating them. Otherwise read self-development books or attend courses.

In the end, success in this industry comes down to just TWO things. Self-confidence and marketing ability.

Now here is the great part. It doesn't take a lot to increase your value in the eyes of a prospect because most don't have a clue when it comes to building a home business. All you need to do is continuing to master this game as you earn and you are in a position of power and value.

I know this might be kind of boring self-development stuff, but it truly is the foundation of your success.
