Starting A Home Based Business Requires A
Realistic Outlook

Submitted by Kirk Bannerman  l November 06 2008  l  Viewings: 8530

By Kirk BannermanMany people that decide to start a home based business are destined to fail because their motivation and expectations arecompletely unrealistic.Over the years I have helped thousands of people start up their own home based businesses on the the Internet and I have come to recognize two of the most important factors for identifying people that should NOT attempt to start a home based business.  If a prospective entrepreneur says something like..."I'm broke and need to make some money...fast!"or,"I want to start a home business, but I don't want to spend anything on it until after I start earning some money."...it is certain that they need a "reality check" and should not attempt to start a home business under either of those conditions.  I refer to these two comments as the "death sentences" for starting a home based business.Almost equally important is the need to have realistic economic expectations when undertaking a home based business.  There is no magic here folks.  A home based business provides many rewards such as working in the comfort of your own home, avoiding a stressful commute, being your own boss, setting yourown hours, no dress code, etc., etc., but anyone that is also expecting "instant riches" is sadly mistaken.There are a tremendous number of home business and work at home opportunities offered on the Internet.  Many of these are all hype and try to convince you that it doesn't take any effort and that you will be making huge amounts of money in very little time (you know, stuff like..."you will be making $5,000 per week, and more, in just a few weeks!").  You should avoid these so called "opportunities" like the plague...if they were for real everyone would be doing it.Study the opportunities carefully and select the home business opportunity that seems to fit your own particular style or talents.  What is a good choice for one person may be a very poor fit for someone else.  The common thread that applies to everyone is that you must be "for real" (as indicated above) and the business opportunity itself must be "for real".----------------------------------------------------------------Kirk Bannerman operates a successful home based business and coaches others seeking to start their own home based business.  Visit his website at http://www.business-at-home.us for more details.  ----------------------------------------------------------------This article is freely available for reprint provided that the resource box at the end of the article is left intact and the article is published complete and unaltered.
