When I started my home-based business, I imagined sitting at my desk, working effectively & getting lots done, while money showed up into my back account as I was sleeping. Of course. in this scenerio, I also imagined the house always clean, kids well-behaved while I was working, and the ultimate: I was always dressed for success in a size 4!
Hmm... needless to say, it didn't quite work out that way. As a matter of fact, it didn't happen this way at all!
Oh, I'd sit at my desk - but had lots of interruptions and distractions from family and myself (especially when I needed to do something I didn't like to do or know how to do). And talk about a learning curve! I would work really, really hard and follow specific instructions on how to build a profitable and successful home-based business. But had nothing to show for it. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong!
Finally, it hit me. I was doing many of the right things but I was missing a few key elements and I wasn't taking action in the right order. In many cases, I was putting the horse before the cart. I was spending money on marketing when I didn't have a lead-capture system set up, an offer that would give value, and even more important, a clear vision of who actually WOULD BUY what I offered! I had identified who could benefit from my business but never dug deep enough to find out if these people actually wanted to change AND were willing to pay for the solutions to their problems!
Does any of this sound familiar to you? If so, maybe I can help...
You see, I've been there. I've done that. I've spent myself into the poorhouse trying to "buy" success via programs, books, coaching, and paid advertising. And all I had to show for it was lots of time spent away from my family, lots of frustration and hopes dimmed, and credit card debt.
I was almost ready to throw up my hands and learn how to milk cows on our organic dairy farm. But I decided to try one more thing. Why?
Because my dream was still there, deep in my heart. The dream of having something worthwhile to share. Something that would truly make a positive difference in the lives of others. Free and paid products or services I could offer that add value and help others eliminate or shorten the painful (and often expensive) learning curve of starting, running, and growing a home based business. And how to do so in 15-minute blocks of time.
