Owning Up When Working At Home

youYou Have to Take Total Responsibility for Your Own Results

There’s nobody to blame when business gets slow or when problems arise within your Work at Home Internet business. You can’t point your finger at the CEO, or the sales team or marketing department, or anyone else. Part three of a five part series. Your success and your failure rely completely on your efforts and on the value of whatever strategy you chose to implement. When you’re building a web-based business your Internet structure is the framework for your business. Don’t take shortcuts, do your research, and always make decisions based on credibility not just price. If you’re looking for a dependable hosting company, I suggest iPage. Think worst case scenario. What if your server crashes? Customers won’t care if your “tech guy” had a misstep – the site has your name on it, so you’re responsible.  The buck stops with you. Be sure you have a safety plan in place. Back-up everything more than once, trust me it’s not a lesson you want to learn the hard way.

There’s No Management Team to Motivate You

It sounds like a dream come true – no gossipy co-workers, no boss looking over your shoulder, and no department head to answer to when your work is late. But it can be more of a curse than a blessing. In a home business, nobody will be making sure you’re at your desk early every morning, and there will be no manager pushing you to work overtime when deadlines are looming. You’ll have to rely completely on self-discipline, and if you don’t have any, you’ll either develop some fast or find your business in big trouble. If you label yourself a procrastinator, you’d better learn how to push through it and become productive. I’m not a procrastinator; no I’m more swayed by those shiny objects that cause distractions. Ask yourself which you are because you need to recognize the fact and be able to buckle down and get things done. I did and oh, how it helped! But that will be a topic for another time. For now, if you’re still with me, let’s take a look at the positive side of Building a Work at Home Internet Business.
