Stop Waiting For Someone To Tell You What To Do Next - You’re The Boss
Tom Miller at Wired.com gives 8 excellent tips for home business and network marketing. “Stop waiting for someone to tell you what to do next” is first on the list.
I love this tip - so basic, yet so important. Being your own boss is great, but it also means you have to be motivated and organized to maintain business momentum. Especially in a sole proprietor home business, if you don’t make it happen, nothing happens, and you have no business.
Miller also talks about believing in yourself as a business owner, and that you are worthy of making a subtantial amount of money. He says,
This state of mind only changes after a combination of consistent self education, training and coaching.
He talks about eliminating things that are holding you back and having cash flow from the start. And here’s a big one -Take action and stop procrastinating. It’s easy to get caught up in tasks that are not priorities. Networking and research are important, but keep a balance and spend most of the time on tasks that will produce an income.
Have an action plan and focus. I highly recommend reading the full article - a great start for someone starting out, or as a refresher for experienced home business owners.
