Work At A Home Based Business Opportunity Skill Set

Dec 25, 2007
It is common knowledge that you need to work at home based business opportunity success the same way that you need to work hard to achieve success - both personal and financial - from the average nine to five job. Unfortunately, it appears as though it sometimes gets lost in the whirlwind of enthusiasm that the skill sets required to realize the success from the home business and the day job are entirely different. Some might even say that in some cases the skills required are diametrically opposed from one another. To help you work at home based business opportunity success while at the same time give you an insight into the skills that are required to prevent failure, here is a quick list of the four most important proficiencies.

1. You must be a self starter. When you work at a home based business opportunity, you are in charge. You cannot rely on anyone else to tell you to get started, to get to work, to set and meet a deadline, to work through your lunch to accomplish a number of tasks before the end of the day, to work overtime after the kids are in bed to get more done, or to cancel your day off because you need to get a vital aspect of the work done. At a regular job, you will be told by a supervisor when extra hours are available for work, when vacation requests will not be granted, and when a special project requires an "all hands on deck" approach which the company rewards with a catered buffet for everyone who commits to come in on their days off.

2. You should not be a team player. In a startling reversal of the tired adage that requires everyone in a corporation to be a team member and look out for the good of the company or the department, as a person who is busy with work at a home based business opportunity, you are number one. This means you are responsible for everything and your way is the only way. The odds are good that nobody will look out for your benefit, and you will need to be mindful of it yourself. Great customer service is up to you to deliver, hard lined collection of funds is your department, and dealing efficiently with customer complaints and generating goodwill in the community for your business is your job.

3. Recognize personal shortfalls and correct them immediately. If you find that you are not as organized as you should be, you will need to burn the midnight oil and take an online class or course to find a way to become more organized and then implement it. At a regular job this might translate into a seminar your boss may pay for and send you to, and then will most likely end up in your taking some of the suggestions and adapting them to your work environment. In your home business it means adapting your way of doing business to a correct way of being organized.

Last but not least, the most overlooked skill when you work at home based business opportunity success is your unwavering commitment to success. This means that you can look past failure, rejection, and mistakes and instead keep trotting forward, always looking toward the ultimate success - even though there will nobody there to cheer you on. At a job, you will have a boss who will encourage you, a concerned coworker who might write you a nice card and put it on your desk, or a friend who will call to encourage you. Not when you are on your own.
