A Little Bonsai Seed

As a work at home entrepreneur I sometimes find myself needing breaks from the everyday, normal routine of life. It would not be wise for anyone to spend all of their hours sitting at the computer and working on their home business. A person needs to be able to do other things besides work!

Some of us run and exercise, while others read a good book or visit with friends. What do I do? Well, I do some of the above, but about two months ago I thought to myself, "I need a different challenge". Well, guess what? I decided to try growing Some bonsai trees from seed! I figured I could use a little more patience and this would surely be the way to accomplish that! Well, I must say, it has actually gone pretty well! I had four Blue Spruce seedlings come up after four weeks of watering the soil and I was some excited! Unfortunately, one of the seedlings has just died In the past few days and I wasnít too happy about it.

I guess what Iím trying to say is that growing a Bonsai tree from seed is kind of like starting a home-based business from scratch. Like a Bonsai tree your new home business will take time and hard work to develop and grow into a prosperous business. When you hear about get-rich-quick deals on the internet, just remember my Bonsai story and realise that a business isnít successful overnight, but that it takes a lot of hard work and sweat. But when your home business does succeed, it will have been worth every second of hard work you put into it!

How To Succeed Working At Home
Written by Dr. Kevin Nunley

I get a BIG chuckle out of experts who preach the joys of working from home. Magazines often feature a photo of a nicely dressed model with her full attention focused on a client on the phone. Her equally nicely-dressed child quietly explores an educational toy on the floor beside her.

That's never the way it works at my house. As I write this from home, my 15 year-old is bouncing a basketball off the outside of my office, my 12 year-old is blaring her new Back Street Boys CD, the kindergartner has just let the neighbor's dog into the living room, and my toddler is trying to climb onto my shoulders while attempting to shut the computer off. Experts advise this isn't the way a successful work-at-home business is supposed to operate. The professional home- worker is told to make clients think she is in a big, plush office in a mirror-covered professional building. "Never allow noise from kids and pets and never answer the phone 'hello.' Clients won't take you seriously," they write. Uh oh, I'm in trouble. Let's be realistic for a second. Of the six million North Americans who work from their houses, I'll bet more than half have noisy kids, dogs, and unfolded laundry competing for their attention. Yet, studies routinely show work-at- homers often get as much or more done than those in the office. Here are a few ideas to help you succeed with a home business when you have lots of family responsibilities to deal with at the same time:

1. Don't worry about kids interrupting a phone call. Being there for family is cool these days. The vast majority of business people wish THEY were at home with their kids.

More often than not, when a small voice starts demanding a popsicle in the middle of an important negotiation, the client on the other end will be delighted. "Are you working at home? How neat! Isn't it wonderful that you can be there for your kids," your client will say.

2. Working non-stop with full concentration is only for people locked in a corporate office. Get used to working in a start-and-stop fashion. When you see your work is about to be interrupted, don't stop at a natural place. Stop in the middle. It will help you get re-started when time allows.

The feeling you MUST be constantly productive at all times is a recent invention of our industrial societies. The majority of the world's people are much more laid back. Take a little more time to get a project finished. Oddly, your productivity will increase.

3. If you are a firm of one, promote your one-ness to the world. Every customer wants to feel like they can talk to the person in charge. That's never a problem for people who do business with you.

Think of all the big corporations that strive to be identified with their Founder. Microsoft has Bill Gates, KFC has the Colonel, and Wendy's has Dave. They spend millions to insure you identify their mammoth corporation with a single individual in charge.

4. Get over the idea that TV is bad for kids. It is a popular, healthy, worthwhile activity when used wisely in moderate doses. Most of TV's criticism is perpetrated by people who sell books. There are a lot of terrifically educational TV programs and videos that kids love to watch. Plan to get a project underway while the kids (we'll include spouses, too) engage in some quality TV consumption.

A few hundred years ago people ALWAYS worked with their kids under foot. It was only when business became dominated by factories that workers were forced to leave their children at home (and even then, it took at least 100 years to make workers change).

You certainly CAN be a success working at home while taking care of children--even if your children are rowdy, noisy, and demanding. The articles I've written (which are read by 1 million people each week) were all written with various children sleeping on my lap, pulling my hair, or trying to delete the file. I earn a good living working at home and YOU CAN TOO! Just don't expect me to always pick up the phone when you call. It's not that I don't want to talk with you, but probably that my 2 year-old has just swiped my keys and is heading for the garage.

MARKETING TIP OF THE WEEK:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Take it OFF the Internet!

Thatís right! When most of us think about running a home business online we donít even give a second thought to what happens offline. Many of us feel the only way to succeed online is to build a website, get it listed in the search engines, or submit to online classified sites or ezines.

What most people donít think about is that there are literally hundreds of Places offline that you can advertise your business at, for free!

Letís just look at one example:
Create a flier with your business information and place it around your city or town! Itís quite easy with a good art program to create your own flier, Print out several dozen copies and post them around town.

But where do you put fliers for free? How about your local grocery store? Or the Laundromat. Many colleges and universities have dozens of bulletin boards that you can post stuff on. This is an untapped advertising method, yet a VERY effective one. Give it a try!
