Building a Home Business – What Are the Components

The ‘idea’ or concept for the business would be one of the most important components. This might include an idea for a product and also the entire concept – the ‘brand’ or environment, etc. Your presentation – your website, your advertising and marketing design are important to your attraction. However, it is your customer service attitude that may keep them loyal.

get what you need

It would be important to find out if there is a market for your intended business. The theory that we should first find the market and bring the product it wants is solid. It is actually more logical and conducive to sales than to choose the product and then try to find a market that wants it. Think about that. It is a whole different equation when they come to you versus you trying to convince them they want or need your product.

Your mindset is also quite important. How badly do you want to have a business? What is motivating you? It probably should be more than that you ‘need money’. Ideally you would love doing whatever you have to do to make a profit. There should be a passion – (besides the money). Whether that passion is related to the product that you are really excited about, or to the act of helping others, it works to keep you motivated. There is gratification in showing folks a way to get what they want or need. Passion can really help you to accomplish all that you need to build your home business.

Motivation can also be cultivated by dissatisfaction with our environment. For example if we are not making more money than just enough to get by; we are not doing something that we like to do, or other negative political factors associated with our workplace environment. Sometimes we just have to buck up and do what is necessary regardless of our preferences. However did you know that having a negative attitude can actually shorten your life? It is important to try to be happy. Do what you have to do, but always be looking to have more of what really works for you.

There are skill sets and mindsets involved in conducting business on whatever level. Sometimes we can’t change things and the only control we have is in how we deal with it. So put on a happy face and remember all the things that make you a fortunate person. One is your ability to start your own business. Even just part-time will make all the difference in the world.

Did You Know What Goes Around Comes Around

Never be afraid to share, regardless of if it is information or even money. Somebody must have given you the information you were seeking, right? Fortunate for you. Think of the difference if they had the attitude that they better not be so honest, because if they told you, you might beat them out of something. (competition vs friendship). Somebody taught you what they knew (shared) and hoped that maybe they had helped you.


Since mankind is not 100% evil, it may just be the case that you are lucky to meet someone who had been successful themselves and wanted to ‘share the wealth’. If they were really good, they may have felt that they needed to ‘give back’ to the universe some of the blessings that they had received. It’s a beautiful way to think, especially when compared to folks that figure ‘I got mine’ (so that is all that matters).

Something really amazing is when someone has been given some real breaks – tangible resources, training, content, etc. for free – and instead of being grateful, they would begrudge their benefactors from making money “off” of them. They would actually seem to go out of their way to do business with anyone but those that had gifted them. Is it some kind of foolish pride? Shallow competition or just plain cruelty?

It may be somewhat understandable when in direct competition to do all you can to ‘win’. It is also possible to have a ‘win/win’ situation where everybody helps everybody and all can benefit. If I am trying to teach you something and you are able to learn, then I succeeded. However if you refuse to learn then we both failed.

If I share something with you that someone shared with me, and you don’t pass it on to someone who is in a position to need it, as you were, then it just dies. Maybe somebody who would have benefited from the information will fail because they didn’t know. Will that make you more of a winner? Hardly.

That is the mindset of someone who doesn’t understand that ‘what goes around comes around’. Maybe when a door slams in his face he will get it. Good or bad – we never know when we will get what we have coming to us. It works both ways – the more good we do the more good we receive and the other way around. So be a winner and don’t be afraid to give it up. Share what you have and be thankful for all that you have been able to benefit from.

Success Recipe

The recipe for success when building a home business is first finding one! We need to find the right ingredients and instructions. Obviously it’s pretty important to follow the directions to the best of your ability. Learn a few basics before you try to do things on your own. It is probably not the right time to do things your way if you have never built a business before.

cook it up

When you have learned some of the basics and have applied them to see how they work, then you can get creative and do things your way so that you will stand out, etc. If you don’t have any experience in the field however, you may waste resources (time and money) doing it your way when you are only guessing. It wouldn’t take that much time or effort to just learn a few facts.

Find some important expert advice and at least consider that they may be able to show you something you don’t already know. It is great to be a ‘non-conformist’ and to be creative, but there should be some foundation to start from. It may also help you if you have information that includes a ‘track record’ (statistics).

Starting a home business is not really like for instance baking a cake. With cake, if you don’t follow the recipe as far as the quantity of ingredients or baking time, you might end up with a lopsided lump that may even be inedible. With cake there is a right way and a wrong way. You do have more leeway with a business start-up to be creative as long as you have some valid frame of reference.

Above all else, what you don’t want to do is to find reasons to procrastinate or to waste time ‘reinventing the wheel’. If things require more technical expertise than what you possess at this point, don’t worry too much. You can learn what are actually very simple instructions, usually as you go along. Basic technical information will also begin to make more sense to you if you want it to.

Things will look very different to you in the near future, with a little experience and information under your belt. You will be more able to navigate and much of the stress will subside. Remember you do not need a degree in computer science or to be a programmer to learn how to function with your own business – eventually. Unless you actually want to have a technical business, there is really not that much you will need to know that is technical. At the same time though, you shouldn’t run away from it. Learn all you can.

An important ingredient for just about anything we do is Mindset. It allows us to have the ability to start anything, or maintain and succeed with anything. The best Mindset you can have in the beginning or the end is an open-minded willingness to learn (humility). Some things you can do at start up, and others will take time and experience to master. Don’t get in a rush which may only discourage you.
