3 Essential Characteristics When You Work From Home

Aug 13, 2008
There is a tremendous amount of interest and excitement happening right now for people looking to become a wealthy marketer who work from home. Why is there such a surge and growth in this industry?

We hear it everyday in the news about rising gas prices, foreclosures, corporate lay offs, companies going out of business, etc. Unfortunately, there is no more job security. Many occupations are at risk with employees having no idea where they will end up with the economy remaining so unpredictable. As a result of this, there are many people who are looking to take control of their lives and especially their future so that it is not in the hands of someone else. This is one of the main reasons for the surge and growth in the work from home industry.

Most recently, an economist predicted that in the next 10 years, the two occupations where millionaires will be born are in network marketing/work from home and the wellness industry. This growth will result in many households producing a net worth reaching the seven-digit mark. Much of this will be achieved through the Internet and the plethora of opportunities it offers. There are many families and individuals enjoying the rewards and benefits of this work from home industry as a result. Furthermore, it is changing their lives for the better where they will never have to be concerned with corporate lay offs, rising gas prices (even if they fall, they will rise again) foreclosures and more.

However, there are many still missing out on this explosive work from home growth. It is not due to lack of effort or desire, but simply the mindset that we are only capable of what our minds believe we can accomplish.

There are many and almost uncountable work from home opportunities to choose from utilizing the internet. This includes most MLM businesses that can take a few months and even a few years to sufficiently develop a network that enables a person to make a significant income with what we call in the industry 1-up and 2-up businesses. These require you to pass up your first few sales to your upline sponsor before you are actually qualified to earn a commission. This also doesn't include the initial start up cost to even join.

The start up costs in the work from home industry can run anywhere from $100 to thousands of dollars. I've seen costs as high as $20,000. You also need to be knowledgeable in marketing your business with your work from home opportunity. This knowledge is required in order for you to be successful. Most never acquire this knowledge correctly, are unwilling to learn and eventually give up. Then, in turn blame the industry. In addition, by spending more money on generating leads to get people interested in your business, you compound the problem before you even get started.

When you are choosing a work from home opportunity, there are important characteristics to consider. Keep in mind that it is not if you want to start a work from home opportunity, but which one you should choose. Here are some key characteristics to follow:

1. Choose a product that you truly believe in and that your customers have a want or need for.

2. Choose a business that has an automated business system in place. These automated systems are designed to provide the initial contact and selling for you. As a result, the automated system will make efficient use of your time.

3. The most important characteristic in choosing your business is having a successful mentor that includes a strong support and training system. Without this, you will be treading water and going nowhere.

Finding a work from home opportunity that includes these essential characteristics is the key to your success. Once you have located one, you will need to develop a business plan that has start up and ongoing costs which will fit into your budget. It's a business. You need to invest money to make money. You can't start a work from home opportunity for free. But how much you initially invest is important. Start small and allow for growth.

By having a work from home opportunity that allows you to make income efficiently, it will yield you a quick return on your initial investment. So make sure your work from home business has these essential characteristics in place. Your whole experience will be much more fun and lucrative. In addition, you will acquire knowledge that will serve you well in the future.

Many people, both men and women are earning a significant income while they work from home. It is easy for you to become one of them. Simply apply these characteristics and research the work from home opportunities that are there. Find one that best suits your needs, set your goals and run with it. You'll like the results.
