|So, you want to work from home. But what kind of business|
should you start?
With thousands of home business opportunities on the
internet, many entrepreneurs find themselves jumping into
home opportunities solely based on the amount they can earn.
But you have to remember; home business is still the real
world. If you have a degree in marketing, you wouldnít even
waste your time trying to repair computers unless you have a
strong knowledge of the subject. But entrepreneurs
continually leap into home businesses that require a skill
they donít even posses.
What to do? Well, you need to first outline your strengths.
Find out what you excel at and apply that to a field that
would work from home.
For instance, your friend might be making $16,000 a month
using MLM programs. You think, great, Iíll join under him
and make $16,000 too! But your friendís skills include a
persuasive personality and a passion for talking on the
phone. Youíre more hands on, and enjoy being a little more
You take up your position under your friend and really crash
and burn. Maybe the landing is so hard that you tell
yourself youíre never going to invest another minute in
creating a home business opportunity.
But if you had played on your strengths, and instead wrote
an ebook on crafting, you may have well exceeded your
friendís earnings if youíd only taken the right direction
So, how do you find what home business is right for you? I
have found that home business opportunities generally fall
into three categories. Someone thatís good at marketing
would probably prefer and shine doing MLM, while someone
that loves to help people would do better in a service
Look at the following three classifications of working from
home, and then find which would serve you best.
The first is marketing. While every business does require a
small amount of sales know how, some weigh their entire
profitably on possessing the skill. You need to be able to
convince readers to buy and have a marketing savvy to make a
Second, is creativity. Creating your own e-books is one
example. If you canít write a lick, then you really arenít
going to make much of a profit writing your own booklets and
And the third kind of opportunity is service. These can
include allowing others to pay you directly for your
strengths. Examples would be consulting, web design,
construction, machine repair, etc.
So, to find the right home business, outline your strengths.
Search, or create, the perfect job that relies heavily on
traits or training you posses. If you find a job that is a
close match, try it and learn other traits necessary to make
it profitable. In time youíll find the most comfortable, and
financially rewarding opportunities are the ones that you
were meant to do.
