This little post could save you thousands and thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours when starting a home business. Read on and thank me later!

What to Focus on When You Start a Home Business

Before I tell you what you SHOULD focus on when starting a home business, let me tell you what you should NOT focus on.

If You Are in Network Marketing

Don’t focus on learning the compensation plan perfectly, learning how to give a presentation, ordering business cards, creating banners, looking at venues to hold meetings or any of that stuff. Solely work on getting your first sale, period. In network marketing you get your first sale by relying on the tools that are already existing in your MLM (just reach out to your upline on what tools you should be using). You should solely focus on knowing where to point people to which tool your company uses (sample, DVD’s, online videos, etc) and what easy opener line to use with them. Don’t be the presenter when you are brand new, use a tool so that they too can use that same tool.

If you are Selling your own Products

Maybe you are reading this and you are NOT in network marketing but selling your own product(s) online or offline. Don’t focus on designing a logo, creating business cards, formulating a ten year plan or even buying new equipment to handle all the orders UNTIL you make your first sale. This morning I was listening (again) to the book Ready, Fire, Aim and in it he states that when you are starting a business, the first three steps are:

1. Design a product that has the ability to be sold (it doesn’t have to be perfect)
2. Sell it
3. Make it better based on user feedback

Starting a Home Business Right

The best people that I have seen do well when starting a home business, especially in MLM, are the ones that didn’t know everything about the compensation plan or product, didn’t plan some huge built up event, and just focused on getting prospects exposed to the tools to get sales. When you start a home based business, take my advice, don’t spend a ton of money on branding or planning and instead focus on ringing that cash register.
