I do not know how many times I hear or read about people thinking they will become rich over night once they sign up with a program on the internet. What they may not realize is that it is actually a very real business that requires work and commitment. Just having a website or two on some traffic exchanges is not going to cut it. Daily attention needs to be paid to this business.
A very wise woman has said that this business is like a garden. You need to plant the seeds and tend to it for it to grow. It will not grow over night and it also will not grow with out the necessary attention it needs. If the business grew over night I think every one would be doing it. The fact is, this business can be hard work and requires a dedicated and motivated owner.
I also read a good post in a forum I frequent about people working for someone else for years and years and when they decide they are tired of it and start a work at home business, they quit within a month or two because they are not making any money. They give up before they get started, instead of dedicating their time and effort to make their business grow. Dedicating their time and effort like they did for their boss, so the boss can get richer while their wage stays the same.
Even if it took five years for your business to become successful it would be worth it, would it not? It would pay for itself in time, financially and the time you put in. You would have the freedom to spend time with your family and do the things you love. Waiting five years is a small price to pay when you compare it to the 40 plus years you put in to a regular job working for someone else. Even when the 40 years are up, some people cannot even enjoy retirement because they are not financially secure. Pensions only pay so much.
Starting a home business may be a scary thing for some people so that may be one of the reasons they give up so easily. It is out of their comfort zone and they may not know how to handle it. Some people may think they do not have time to work on a home business, especially if they have another job. If someone told you that in five years they would guarantee your financial future, but you would have to put in a few hours a week to make it happen, would you do everything you could to find those hours and make it work? There are probably a lot of people who would.
It is hard to see the future when trying to build a home business because there are times of uncertainty. Getting discouraged and feeling like quitting are all normal emotions when getting a home business off the ground. Patience, effort, time and dedication are key ingredients when building a business from home. Sometimes it is hard to do but in the long run it will be worth it and you will wonder why you did not do it sooner.
