Success In A Home Business May Not Be Easy But It Sure Is Worth It

Aug 18, 2007
Skeptics scoff and laugh at those of us who start home businesses. I wish I had a dollar for every person who said to me, "That won't work. It's a scam or it won't last." I'd have more money than Oprah. Sure there are scams out there but should you let therm stop you? I've eaten more than a few bad meals in my day but that didn't stop me from eating!

There are plenty of home based businesses that are legitimate and honest and these businesses can change your life forever! It took a few times to find the right one for our family, but when we did we knew it right away.

After we got rolling we decided to home school our kids and take a great vacation since they had basically never been anywhere other than to their grandparents house on summer break. We took a month long vacation to Arizona. We sat by the pool everyday and did math and history. Because we put in the work in the beginning of our business we were able to stay on vacation for as long as we wanted... literally. One month rolled into the next and since we didn't own a traditional business we had the money and the time freedom to keep on traveling and enjoying life. Our family got to spend more time together than any other family I know.

Keep in mind that we had to work hard to grow our home business but once we had achieved success it was easy to work a little and play a lot. Over the years we have been on many more wonderful vacations. We took our children to see the shuttle launch when John Glenn went back up into space. We spent 2 1/2 years out in Los Angeles while our kids tried their hand at acting. As the kids got older my wife and I began to take trips without the kids and do things that we as a couple truly enjoy.

It gives us great pleasure to be able to not only do things that we want to do, but also to be able to make others dreams come true. One of the most memorable things we've done is a 7 week vacation covering 18 states and 2 Canadian provinces. It was different from most vacations because we took my parents with us for almost 3 weeks. My father had always wanted to see a Broadway Show in New York, and we made his dream come true. We saw the Pro Football Hall of Fame, The Baseball Hall of Fame and did more than our share of shopping with my wife and mother.

We took my mother-in-law on a trip so she could do something that she had always wanted to do. Nobody knew that she had wanted to go to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, and at the age of 73 she went up in a hot air balloon for the very first time.

You may be thinking, "All this stuff sounds great, but that's not what I would do if I had both the time and the money." One of the most exciting things about owning your own home based business is setting your own personal and financial goals. It's strictly up to you how much money you make and how hard you work and even what hours you work.

Starting a home based business isn't easy at first, but it is totally worth it. Just think about what YOU would be doing if you had your choice to go anywhere you want to go and stay there as long as you want to. If you want what you've never had, you must be willing to do what you've never done. Go out there and find the home business that is right for you. Don't listen to the naysayers, work hard and it will definitely be worth it!
