Success Stories in the Home Business World - Share Yours

by Mary Emma Allen on September 30th, 2007

Spread word of your success.  Don’t keep it hidden under a bushel.  You can do this without seeming egotistical…simply let others know wherever appropriate. 

This is difficult for some of us because we may come from the generation where I still hear my mom saying, “Don’t toot your own horn.  People will think you’re bragging. ”

However, if you wait solely for others to discover what you’re doing, the world won’t
hear about your or your business.  You can share, as I call it, without seeming egotistical or “pushy.”  You can announce over forums and round-ups of success stories, as well as doing the traditional promotions. 

You might participate in a “success” post, such as the one Yvonne Russell, at Grow Your Writing Business has initiated, Marvelous Mini Milestones & Super Successes - September 2007.  Yvonne has begun doing this on a monthly basis. 

(She even mentioned the guest post I wrote for Grow Your Writing Business about blog tours, Virtual Blog Tours - The Latest Innovation for Promoting Your Writing.  Thanks, Yvonne, for “tooting” my horn and mentioning Home Biz NotesMother would be pleased that I hadn’t blown my own horn.)

Of course, the successes mentioned on Yvonne’s blog relate mainly to writing and publishing success, whether it’s print or online.  However, many of the techniques these writers/bloggers mention you can apply to other home businesses.

Why don’t you share your business successes here?  We can initate a monthly report of home business milestones and success stories.

    Mary Emma -
    That’s a great idea to do a regular roundup of home business success stories - a marketing opportunity for savvy home biz owners. :)

    Thanks for mentioning Grow Your Writing Business.

    Thanks for stopping by, Yvonne. If home business owners look around, they’ll find numerous opportunities for promotion/marketing and won’t feel they’re out there aggressively “tooting” their own horn. Also, these are opportunities that don’t cost them anything…only the time to share.

    I’m amazed at how working at home has taken off, for everyone really. There is so much more available now than there ever was for past generations.

    Thanks, Laura, for stopping by Home Biz Notes. Yes, isn’t working at home becoming really popular? I think the Internet has a lot to do with this…and making it possible for our home business to reach around the globe.
