Home Based Business Success Rate is Only 3% – How to Beat the Odds

Just a few short years ago, I was actually in the same predicament as most home business entrepreneurs. I found myself struggling in my business and not knowing where to turn in order to gain positive results. Back then I had heard a lot about the success rate, but somehow always knew there was a way to beat the odds and it was up to me to find the answer.

By reading this article, you will have the ability to eliminate one of the most common mistakes that most home business entrepreneurs make to literally lead them to failure. You will gain more knowledge of what it takes to become successful and be given some very simple strategies to increase the odds of success. You will also know the importance of practicing these techniques on a regular basis and how staying committed to your actions can make a world of difference in any network marketing business.

Many people do not realize the simplicity of network marketing success. You may have heard this statistic before, but it is a fact that 97% of the people who get started in a home based business fail. There are many reasons for this unbelievable success rate. One major reason is that people tend to set their expectations way too high. They start their own home business thinking it will provide a “get rich quick” solution to their problems. When it does not happen within a 30-day time period…. they quit! Think about it for a moment. If one were to start a traditional business outside their home… restaurant, clothing store, gas station, etc… do you think they could possibly expect to make a significant income in their first month? Of course not, and why would those that start a home based business think any differently? Business is business, whether you’re working from home, or doing a traditional style business.

It is a fact, however, home business success can be much faster when starting a business in network marketing. When I say faster, I mean you could see results in a few short months rather than a few years. It does require persistent and consistent action over time, but it can be done and it can be a life-changing experience. Anyone with a strong desire to “make it happen” has every ability within them to succeed.

Once you have conducted your due diligence and found an opportunity that is right for you, make a commitment to yourself to stick with it. Give yourself a certain amount of time to start seeing results. I usually recommend at least a year to my business partners, as I really want them to grasp the fact that there will be work involved. Nothing happens overnight and it’s important to realize that a home based business is no different. Consistent and persistent effort is key if you want to create your ultimate lifestyle. You must ask yourself if this lifestyle is worth a few months of hard work.

Now you know that the key to success in network marketing or any home based business for that matter is remaining consistent in your business building efforts. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you must remind yourself that you are building an empire that will bring in years of residual income if you can just remain patient and do the things that need to be done. Though I’ve expressed that it will take time and effort, the time one can realistically build their home business to see some staggering results is within 1 – 3 years. Compare that to a traditional business or a 9-5 job, and it’s really a no-brainer. One thing to remember… whatever it is you want to achieve, you must know deep down the key to your success is within you. Keep your thoughts positive and continually move forward to finding your way to success. Everyone deserves a life of abundance… no exceptions!

I’ve always had a feeling that home based business success was within reach and I didn’t stop until I found a way. If it had not been for my persistence and determination to find an opportunity that would assist me in my marketing success, who knows where I would be…. I would really rather not think about it. I took control of my situation and it’s time for you to do the same. Remain committed and over a very short amount of time, you will be well on your way to being in the top 3% of the network marketing success rate. To your ongoing success!
