Stop Living Paycheck to Paycheck
By Laura Kelly-Pifer
If you didn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck, would the knot in your stomach go away? More than likely you answered this question with a yes. What would change in your life? Take a moment and sit back and think about it before you read on.
Like many of you, I have lived paycheck to paycheck. I felt stuck and I had to find a way out. My full time job wasn’t creating enough income to pay the bills. And, continuing to live off of credit was not the answer. The bills were getting bigger and bigger and I had to find a solution. The fix: starting a home based business. I was able to take the skills that I learned from my full time job and put to use in my direct sales division as well as my client care division.
Through the years, I have learned first hand what you need to look for when choosing a home based business opportunity. I’m going to share those with you.
Do your research – More than ever, there are many home based business opportunities and I’ve dabbled in several of them. Some have been successful and some not. Take a look at the compensation plan and what supplies you might need to purchase. Will you be required to hold inventory? How much time will you need to invest into this company? Don’t be afraid to ask questions. And while the money aspect is important, if you’re not passionate about it or it causes you more stress, than is it really worth doing?
Are there policies and procedures you must adhere to? Most direct sales companies have guidelines that you must follow. Be sure to read over them so that you are aware of things prior to enrolling. Once again, don’t be afraid to ask questions if unsure about something.
Will you have support? – Having access to a mentor in the company I chose was extremely important for me. I didn’t feel as though I were alone and was able to ask questions when needed. They were able to direct me to the resources I needed to run a successful home based business.
Decide how you want to grow your business – Technology today allows us many avenues to grow our business. No matter what method you choose, one to one, social media or cold calling, the choice is yours. The key though is choosing the right method to locate clients.
That feeling of being stuck, doesn’t have to last long; opportunities are all around. I have faith that it you choose to start your own business, that you can be successful. The life you dream of is possible. All you have to do is start taking action.
