Day by day people are recognizing that they do not have to make a trade-off between spending time with their families and their 9-5 jobs. This has resulted in the phenomenal growth of a new breed of work from home entrepreneurs, a group of people seeking to unshackle themselves from the claws of slavish employment whilst embracing a new lifestyle of freedom and flexibility.
The opportunities for work from home entrepreneurs are endless. However, there are still many individuals who are fearful to step out and start their own home based business, because they feel a sense of security in their day jobs. I hope that after reading this article you would have a change of mind.
Fear of the unknown is always a barrier or hindrance to doing things differently. Be mindful of this, your journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur starts within your mind. Transformation rather than conformation is the key to overcome the entry barrier of fear. Have you ever heard the saying? “If your mind can conceive it and you believe it, then you can achieve it.”
The results you have in life are very much a reflection of how you think. If each time you think of starting your own home based business your secondary thought is that of failure, then you are setting up yourself to fail before you even get started. One of my favourite quotes can be found in the Bible and it states thus “For as a man think in his heart, so is he”. Therefore as you seek to position yourself as a home based entrepreneur, think on things that are positive, honest, successful, true, lovely, pure and just; and you will accomplish results beyond your wildest dreams.
Starting any new business can be incredibly exciting, but the journey from idea to income can be difficult – sometimes impossible – without business coaching. Luckily, for me, I had the benefit of having two great mentors, who taught me everything I needed to know about building and managing a home based business. As you seek to build your business consider getting a good coach who can guide you to avoid some of the pitfalls that many new work from home entrepreneurs encounter. This greatly assisted me in creating an independent future for my family and me.
Coaching and Mentoring for Work from Home Entrepreneurs
As I noted above my journey to becoming a successful online entrepreneur was made possible with the assistance of some leaders in online education. I realized that having a business degree did not actually provide me with the hands-on knowledge needed to be a successful entrepreneur. A coach/mentor makes a big difference.
If you have an interest in building an online business that gives you the best of both worlds (working on your own terms while enjoying time with your family) help is always available.
Be strong and Courageous
