Legitimate Home Based Business Opportunities * How To Be Immensely Successful Using Leverage - Articles Surfing
So you have finally found a legitimate home based business opportunity.
You are very enthusiastic and hopeful initially.
Almost working 25 hours a day, 8 days a week, 5 weeks a month. You "know" you are going to succeed very soon.
6 months later, you are wondering why you are not as successful as you want to be. There are other people who are lazier yet more successful than you.
You probably know that this is a common problem faced by many entrepreneurs, home based or otherwise. Well, there are many important factors that entrepreneurs need to know in order to become successful. These include leverage, beliefs, planning, action, strategy etc.
In this article, I shall discuss how we can use leverage (both time and money) to help us become successful.
So how are we going to leverage our time?
Well, let's think about the reasons why you choose to start a home based business. Most probably, you want to work from home so that you can control their time and choose when you want to work. Of course, you hope that eventually, your income will increase exponentially while spending fewer hours.
But in order to achieve that, you have to find a powerful shortcut. Find out what are the components in your business that can be automated. For example, if you have a list of subscribers, you will want to have an autoresponder to email them on a fixed schedule rather than doing it manually.
You should also know your strength and weakness. Perhaps you do not know how to setup a website. Then outsource the task to other people. Most likely, they can do it within a few hours for a nominal amount of money. One common mistake of many entrepreneurs is that they try to do everything themselves.
Always think of ways to automate your business. Very soon, you will be able to remove yourself from your business and still enjoy a comfortable passive income.
So how are we going to leverage our money?
Do you have a financial plan? Or do you go into a spending spree once you get paid?
The first step to leveraging money is obviously to know your financial habit and come up with a plan. The main focus is to decide what percentage of your income is reinvested into the business.
For example, in the first month, you made $1000 of profit from an investment of $250.
Due to your experience in the first month, you are now a better investor. So by doubling your investment, your profit increases by three times to $3000.
Can you see the power of money leverage now? With more money now, you can even start to outsource other tasks, achieving both time and money leverage at the same time.
Just keep on duplicating your effort and sooner or later, the power of your leverage will increase exponentially.
