Are you in charge of your time and freedom, or do you answer to a boss? An employer? Today, we have this amazing opportunity to change our lifestyle and future, yet few people take the plunge.
Sure, it looks like a lot of people are online building a future with their own business, but in actuality, there are millions of people struggling in the 9-5 job that are hurting. They know they are not going to change their current situations, but just don’t know how to go about making a difference.
Your Time and Freedom
This is the most important WHY people report as their reason for working online and building a business. They know that they have the power to make the change in their lives that will produce a future they can be proud of and that will provide for their families.
We are the entrepreneurs who see the vision, feel the possibilities, and embrace the potential. We are the new breed of business owners who, for one reason or another, turned to our own abilities to make our own time and freedom become a reality.
Can You Do This?
It all depends on you. This is true no matter what you want…weight loss, learning a new language, travel, longer hair, bigger house…can you do it? It all depends on you. Yes, I said that twice. You are the leader in your life. You make the choices and decisions.
Magic is not going to change your life. Only you can do that. You have to set a goal, write out the path you will take to get there, and sit yourself down and JUST DO IT.
We did not expect overnight miracles. We knew that building a business would take time. Even a brick-and-mortar business takes time — and a lot of capital to stay afloat until the business takes off (or goes under). That is a very stressful way to do business these days. I’m not saying anything against a main street business. We NEED those businesses to be in our communities.
Most of us cannot afford to start out with the costs of a store or shop. Most of us started out with a dream and a shoestring budget. We invested a small amount to become part of a business and we spent long hours in learning all we could about our product/service, how to market, and how to build our business.
This is where so many people really have a chance to play on the field equally. Excuses are abundant…
- I don’t have the money
- I don’t know how
- I don’t have the time
- I don’t know about computers
- I don’t like talking to people
- It’s all a scam
- My spouse won’t let me
Excuses are a dime a dozen. What is your excuse as to why you can’t afford a business start up here online, but you go and have your nails done regularly? Or your hair cut monthly? Or you buy a cup of coffee everyday (you’d save lots of money by brewing your own and taking it in a travel cup). Seriously, excuses are just excuses. They are not real reasons…
Who Am I?
I’ve been working online full time since 2007. I didn’t start out with network marketing. I provided a needed service and increased my skills over a 5-6 year period of time. I built a business on my customer service skills and determination to be the best I could be in the field.
Network Marketing turned my head…you mean, I could make a small investment and build a business part-time to start with, increase the momentum as I learned the ropes and totally replace the service I was providing?
Why would I want to do that? Just a quick note here, I wanted to put aside the service business due to the tight deadlines and it was beginning to feel like working for a boss. I was at their beck and call. Not my vision of working for myself.
So I moved to internet marketing, or network marketing as most of us call it. I put my skills to use and made the decision to be the best I could be. It’s all in your determination and desire.
Without a long story here…I did not have much money to start with. In fact, my most successful business cost $1 to start. I didn’t have a lot of time as I worked 50-60 hours a week keeping deadlines on track. I am a full-time mother and a full-time caregiver for my elderly parent. Did I have a lot of time? Not then…but I do now.
Being able to work from home in an industry that I love, that provides me the time to care for my family, and the freedom to do what needs to be done is priceless.
You CAN do this, too. You can change your life simply by taking a step forward and asking questions. Step up and be AWESOME! You won’t regret a single minute of changing the direction of your life.
