They Lied That S It I Quit

(No Ratings Yet)

How many times has quitting your home based business crossed your mind? Let’s be honest now – weekly, daily, hourly? I would be willing to go out on a limb and say that we all have at one time or another. Sure, the ad promised guaranteed results and that money would fall from the sky into your bank account. But did you miss the underlining fine print that said stating that it required work?

There is endless information about home based businesses and how to do them well; however, how do you take stock of your business and know when it’s time to throw in the towel? This is often one of the hardest (or easiest) business decisions that the entrepreneur has to make. Often, those that are closest to something have the most difficulty in accepting its failure. How do you step away and make sure you’ve made a good business decision without letting your pride get in the way?

It all starts in the beginning with a strong foundation on which to build your business. Targeting your market, developing a business plan, setting company goals and keeping good records are all vital components. You want to be able to track and to see your business grow with you. By being aware of your business and how it is doing, you can make sound business decisions about what to do next. Chances are that you do not need to close up shop but simply tweak your marketing strategy.

The truth is that many of today’s most successful millionaires have been either bankrupt or on the brink of failure before striking it rich. To fail at something does not mean you have to quit. You’ve just found something that doesn’t work. So what? Why are you so special that you should have no growing pains?

Always remember that success is a journey not a destination. Like a roller coaster, there will be ups and downs, so do your best and enjoy the ride. Learn and only take business advise from others more successful than yourself. Don’t rush in to blaze a trail in your industry or business. Remember, it was the first pioneers that ended up taking the most arrows.

Before cashing in your home business dreams, keep the following in mind:

In 1954 the manager of the Grand Ole Opry fired a singer and told him “You ain’t going nowhere, son. You ought to go back to driving a truck.” This young singer was Elvis Presley.

After being turned down by Decca Recording Company and being told “We don’t like your sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out,” these young musicians went on to become “The Beatles.”

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the winning shot – and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordon

“Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for their victories.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
