Why You Should Have Work at Home Business Goals.
Why you should have well-defined work at home business goals!
A goal properly set is halfway reached. - Abraham Lincoln
Know your goal, make a plan and pull the trigger. - Phil C. McGraw
There's no way to reach home business success if you haven't set a goal. Perhaps you just want to make a few hundred dollars per month, or
maybe you want to earn enough money with a work at home based business to buy your dream home.
Every home business entrepreneur has slightly different reasons and motivations for devoting some of their time and energy into building a home business,
but one thing is for sure - you won't know when you've reached "success" as a work at home entrepreneur until after you've defined what success means to you.
Does it mean that you're making enough money to pay your monthly bills? Does it mean that your residual commissions cover the payments for your dream car?
Or does it mean that you've built an organization so big and profitable that it will continue to provide you a life-long income years after you've stopped
networking full time?
Before you place another ad, talk to another prospect or send another invite - take just a minute to think about what you want in life.
Clearly define what level of income you need, in definite terms, and also a timeframe in which you would like to achieve it.
You don't have to be exactly on the mark when it comes to reaching your home business goals. Life throws curveballs. You'll have to often change your course
of action, and even your degree of action, to turn your "wants" into your own personal reality.
What's important is that you have something definite that you're working towards. Because most work at home entrepreneurs are at least partially motivated by money,
let's look at an example of setting a monetary goal and what it takes to achieve it. You might be surprised at how simple it can be to reach a rather lofty goal
through consistent action.
Here's a sample goal... clearly defined.
I, YOUR NAME, am setting my work at home monthly income goal at $3,000 per month. The date by which I am to achieve this goal is May 24th, 2007.
The method I will use to make this income a reality is referring new customers and affiliates to an online business using the tools they
and following the sponsoring techniques recommended. As I learn what works best for me, I will not hesitate to make variations in my course of action that
will put me on a straighter line towards the attainment of my $3,000 per month income.
Building a $3,000 per month income that will continue to come to you month after month, whether you're working full time or not - in just one year -
might seem like a lofty goal. But let's break it down in a way that puts it into perspective for you, and see if it helps make its attainment seem more within your reach.
Of course, May 24th, 2007 is ONE YEAR away based on the above goal. If you're starting from scratch (you have no organization yet),
that means you must add an average of so many people PER MONTH to your organization in order to reach your home business goal. If you're just beginning,
this might seem like a lot.
Get your first 5 or 10. Help them get their first 5 or 10. Within a short period of time, you'll have a much bigger team of people working towards the attainment
of your goal (and their own goals). By the time you have an organization of 25 people, each member of your team only needs to refer an average of 10 people per
month for you to be on track to achieve your goal. That's 1 referral each in a 3 day period.
Can that be done? Sure it can, and pretty easily!
And, as your organization grows and you have more people contributing to the attainment of your work at home goal, the momentum you'll gain towards achieving it
will be unbelievable. To see that momentum, all it takes is for you to maintain your excitement and energy, keep your goal at the top of your mind, and
pour as much energy as needed into achieving it.
Any income goal you set for yourself can be reached if you have the desire, and the willingness to expend the time and energy needed to attain it.
