Finding the right home business is wonderful, but it’s not an easy process. You may have to try a few business models to find the one that works right for you.
Trouble is, trying out home businesses can be downright addicting.
Becoming addicted to starting new home businesses is a great way to fail. You overload yourself and never really find what you excel at… or if you do, you don’t have the time to really do it right.
There’s a thrill to starting a new business. New products, a new topic to talk about, a different way to market. It’s fun, and I won’t deny that.
But having at least one business that you are succeeding at matters far more than the thrill of chasing after dozens of ideas. Without success, what’s the point of being in business?
Home business addiction can take a few forms. It might mean you jump from one opportunity to another in network marketing. It might mean you halfway launch a dozen websites, but never really promote any of them well enough to get anywhere (owning a dozen or more sites and running them well is another matter). It might mean buying into every grandiose product launch you read about in your email, spending thousands before you really understand what you need to learn.
Sometimes it pays to just stop. Take a look at where you’re going. Pick something to focus on. Quit trying new things and try to master one thing you know kind of well.
It may take time, and it may be hard to tell early on what business you are most likely to succeed in. You’ll learn more, however, by giving your favorite a solid try with as few distractions as you can manage.
