Are YOUR Toes Bruised?

What a question! What's THAT supposed to mean?

I ask the question because so many people today who profess to
be interested in operating their own business spend far too much
time "tire-kicking."

While I would never underestimate the importance of exercising
due diligence when investigating any type of business or income
opportunity, there comes a time when you simply have to make a
decision and act upon it.

Let's face one business is right for everyone. We
all have different interests, different abilities, different
financial goals. But one thing's for'll never
get off the ground if you sit on your hands!

Take my own experience, for instance. I started with an idea,
a concept. I wanted to help others learn that with a little
knowledge and a lot of sweat equity, anyone with the desire
can earn an income from home.

This is not the first business I've operated from home; far
from it. My first foray into the home-business scene was with
a direct sales company called Discovery Toys. At that time it
was in its infancy (as a matter of fact, I was the very first
representative in my home state of Mississippi). For those of
you not familiar with Discovery Toys, it markets educational
toys and games through a variety of sales methods. It also
provides an opportunity for residual income by building your
own sales force. I chose to only do sales, and I did very
well with it. Why? Not because I sat around wondering IF
it would work; I just did it!

Another business I operated from home was as a tutor for young
children whose parents wanted them to learn how to use a
computer. I invested in a computer and software and marketed
my business to day cares and preschools as an optional service
to those parents willing to pay for it. Once again, I took a
chance...and it paid off. But it didn't happen by accident,
and it didn't happen overnight.

You can spend your time analyzing the daylights out of each
and every venture, but I can assure you that if you do, at
some point you'll convince yourself that it just won't work!
And you know what? It WON'T work unless you are confident
in your ability to succeed.

Here's another news flash...when you do start your own
business, you're going to make some mistakes. If you're not
willing to learn from those mistakes and use that knowledge
to improve yourself and your business, then maybe you'd just
better stay in that 9-to-5 job.

Operating your own business involves risk-taking and
decision-making; no one can tell you exactly how to run your
business. If you're looking for someone to answer every
question for you, make every decision, and show you EXACTLY
what to do every step of the way, you don't need to be in
business for yourself.

Getting started is the hardest part, but once you do, don't
look back. You'll get discouraged and want to give upPsychology Articles, but
you have to hang in there. The rewards are many.

Like...not having any more bruised toes!
