Home Business Tips For Spending Your Time On What Makes Money

There is a saying that 80% of our results are typically from about 20% of our efforts. This is saying that 80% of the stuff we are doing is essentially wasting time. Obviously not everything is as black and white as this. Even still it is worth considering how you are spending your time and whether your activities are contributing to the profitability of your business.

21Great Ways To Find Blog Topics

If you want to make money from home-based business then everything you do or at least the majority of your activity needs to be concentrated on those activities which will directly lead to making money. I read an article recently about personality traits of those who are consistently and continually successful in their online businesses. The article also discussed those who are not successful even though they try over and over again. One of the reasons for those who continually fail indicated that they focus too much on perfection in areas that are not directly linked to producing sales. On the other hand, it was said that a trait of those who are habitually successful were that they don’t wait for perfection before moving forward. They put up a website and while they hope to improve it over time they get straight to work on getting traffic and making sales instead of spending hours trying to make it the perfect website.

How are you spending your workday? To over simplify, are you spending your time organizing your office and attending to administrative details or are you spending your time on direct marketing activities that will lead to sales. You see it makes absolutely no difference how organized your office is or how nice your website looks if you are not making sales. It is all about the sale. It is like a salesperson who spends an hour and a half every morning going through his leads and organizing them and making notes and planning his day instead of picking up the telephone and calling on those leads. There is a reason he does this and that is because picking up the telephone and calling leads is hard and it is uncomfortable and we are creatures that seek comfort. The problem is those activities are not going to put cash in his pocket.

If you are not making sales you do not have a business. You can have the nicest office chair and furniture and professional looking letterhead and a website but if you are not making sales you have nothing. Make sure the essentials are in place but after that focus your time on activities that are directly related to driving traffic to your website because that is what will produce leads and those leads will produce sales and those sales will put money in your pocket. Now you’ve tapped into the world of real wealth which is:

Residual Income

Leverage Income

Effects of a Positive Mindset Can Change Your Home-business Approach

It is very important, maybe even critical for you to have faith in yourself and the universe in general. It can be very difficult especially if you read the news and/or have unresolved personal issues

create a positive mindset

It may seem obvious that we have to try to balance everything so that no matter how bad things get, we can still see the light. We may have to conjure up some good thoughts if we don’t find any when we search our own data.

If necessary to turn things around we may have to just get away from the whole situation. Go out and force ourselves to enjoy something – fun, food, sun, fresh air, friends, relatives, etc. Whenever thoughts come up that are about our problems, for at least this period of our escape, we must refuse to entertain negative thoughts.

We can do this by consciously slamming the door that goes that way. Grab hold of a pleasant thought and stick to it. You can do this with a short prayer requesting that you be given faith; or you may think about something of beauty such as sunrise or sunset, the ocean or the trees. Focus on whatever you really love and then imagine you are there right now.

With a home business you can actually use your actions to promote your business and subsequently improve your mindset at the same time. This speaks to the fact that instead of getting discouraged because you have not seen many results yet and letting this cause you to lose interest. It is perfectly normal to have to take action over a period of time in order to produce results.

Many think they should see results without putting forth any effort or investing any time. If you think about the logic of this there isn’t any. You must be realistic if you need to work a little harder for a little longer. Again this is a good thing because eventually you are apt to see improvement in your bottom line because of the extra effort and this will cheer you up and encourage you.
