Doing What You Want to Do to Make Money at Home
There are so many people who are looking for advice from all sorts on how to proceed when trying to make money at home with their own business ideas. It is too bad that so much of this advice is either ill willed, or just bad advice from someone who means well. Ultimately, the choices you make will only affect you and those you are responsible for, not your friends, business colleagues, or neighbors. Make the choice because it is what you want to do, not because others think you should do it.
How many horror stories have we all heard about people who listened to others, knowing what the right choice would have been, only to fail because they thought someone else had a better handle on a specific business idea or more experience. The fact is that if your heart is not in it, you will most likely fail at it. This rings true in all aspects of life whether it is trying to make money at home or in a marriage. So stay with your gut feeling if you believe you have a good idea to market a product or service, and stop listening to your neighbors, friends, and people at the local coffee shop.
We all know that venturing out into an unknown place is scary, but listening to those who haven’t been where you are about to go will not help you either. If you were walking in the darkness and had two people hollering at you, one from behind you and another in front of you about the dangers ahead, who would you listen to? My money would be on the person in front of you who has already been down the path, not the one still not as far up the path as you. So ultimately, if you are going to listen to anyone, listen to those who have been down the road you are about to travel.
In the world of business there are so many shades of gray that can all lead to success, or failure. Sometimes two people can have the same exact idea and one will fail and the other will succeed just due to slight differences in how they marketed their idea, where they allocated their resources, and how well they budgeted their costs. Subtle differences could set the tone for your business life, and be your ticket to success.
