If you are thinking to start a home-based business, but are not sure where to start. The right spot to begin is with you. Ask these 5 questions to yourself. The answer to these questions will lead your way.
Take some paper and pen, and go through each question step by step as-
1) What Hobbies do You Have?
Think about all the things you love to do in your free time. Don’t forget to note them down. Don’t hold anything back, because I will not be examining your answers. Nothing is right or wrong, at this step. There is only the truth, just what you sense directly from your soul.
Why do this? Because hobbies are a wonderful source of motivation and make anyone energetic. If you love doing something without being paid, why would you not do it for money? If you are doing something that is your hobby, money comes to second place, when compared to the immediate satisfaction you get from doing it. Note this all down on a piece of paper.
2) What Are You Specialized In?
In your life, you must have accumulated a great deal of knowledge about certain things. Thanks to the world you live in, you may have become a specialist at something. And this expertise could be helpful to others around the world. So would you let this go to waste? No of course not.
So note down all the specialties you have. Also, note down any specialized set of skills you may have unfolded too. It could be in event organization, sales, accounting, public relations, counseling, etc.
3) What Corner of The Book Store Attracts You?
When someone question me that, at that moment, I was like “What? Why is that relevant to anything?”.
Actually, It has got to do with everything. Which section of the bookstore you go to FIRST usually points out which topics you adore reading about. In a chat with one of my team members a few weeks ago, I questioned him the same question, and his response was “Well, I never thought about it, but when I visit a bookstore first I go to the self-help section. I enjoy reading about how I can enhance myself in becoming a better human being.”
Similarly, Your subconscious activities may have the answer to your problem. Now we’re getting somewhere, so use that piece of paper again and note down YOUR favorite section on it.
4) What Did You Love Doing a few Years Back?
My life now is significantly different from what it was a few years ago. And, what about yours? What did you enjoy doing back in time, but cannot find the time for it currently? Did you plan to start something else back there, but for some unexpected reasons, it never came to happen?
Our lives keep changing all the time, but if you found something in your past that you’re yet passionate about, note it down on that piece of paper.
5) What Are You Naturally Good At?
You will get the answer to this question from your friends, not yourself. The knowledge you already have about yourself isn’t going to help. The only things you never understood you were good at, will open all the doors to your own home-based business. So step ahead, call 15 of your best friends, and question them “What do believe I’m good at?”
Make a mental note, or write down all their thoughts on your piece of paper. The key to working it best is to NEVER argue or question about, what they think. Take the bad with the good, take it all. By the time you’re done with number 15, I assure you, you’ll begin uncovering things about you that you never knew before.
The Road Becomes Clearer
When you’re done with your list of questions, you would notice the road to your dream home business seems a little more clear now. You now have multiple thoughts on what kind of home-based business suits you most, and all you have to do now, is choose. So, choose the one that you’re most eager to start RIGHT NOW.
If you just passed through this article without taking notes and asking these questions to yourself, then let me reveal the truth:
It takes YEARS to make persistent five or six-figure earnings from your own home-based business. You can’t do it in months, no matter what others are saying out there. The only way you’re going stand during initial “make-or-break” years is if you’re doing something that you love doing. Something that will be fun for you, and not hard work.
