How serious are you with your online business? Starting your own business either online or offline is a big step to take. There are times when people mostly with good intentions can put doubt in your mind, some make fun of you.
The making of fun often comes from the fact they just wish they had the guts to step out and do something on their own.
You can run your business full time, or part-time, you can even run it along side your job. In fact I know a few people who have large successful eBay and Amazon businesses and they still work at their old job. Why? Well they enjoy it – you see once they had a job to provide the money to pay the bills, now they go to work on their own terms because they love it.
But taking that step and saying next week I am leaving my full-time job and going full time into my Amazon / eBay business a big step. Yes you will have set everything up, yes you will have made sure you are making the income you need from the online venture for several months before handing in your notice.
Having your own online business is fun and it gives you freedom to do things during the day that you only could dream of. For example if you have kids you can go to all their school activities, attend sports games, take them to appointments, be there to support your wife or husband in the home – the list is endless.
But you need to set up some ground rules and stick to them as much as possible.
Have a set time when you start work
Sit down at your computer dressed, washed and ready for the day ahead – imagine turning up for work scruffy. (Now at times there is no harm in working in your PJ’s just don’t make a habit of it.
Have set times for lunch, dinner and when you finish
You will find family and friends asking you to do things as you are now at home so much – erm sorry have to say no. Now of course if it was an emergency or something then yes. But if you worked for a company you could not have the freedom
People will respect you for this and honor what you say. If you are going to grow a serious business you need to have it all in place just as if you worked for someone.
But having said all that you are in business for yourself and one of the top reasons normally is to have the freedom an internet business gives you. You are your own boss and if it is a lovely day go out and have fun, re-charge those batteries.
Remember this business is about sourcing, listing, make it fun have those goals set and have fun.
