What's Holding You Back

Updated on July 10, 2012

Ever Feel like this?

A plan for the struggling business

What’s holding you back?

It is amazing that no matter what the economic climate, there are still a massive amount of people that “want” to earn extra income. Many go the part-time job route. A massive amount of people, numbering at least 3 million in the US, go the home based business route.

I have been supporting people in home based businesses for over 30 years now and the truth be known, there is really no change. This is an open an honest letter to the home based business owners out there that are struggling in their journey to make money. I have had many people purchase different programs of mine to assist them in saving money on their taxes as well as make money in their business.

Over time, I have had many people drop out of the programs and/or never hear from them again. Although this sounds like a bad testimony for my programs, I believe that a lot has to do with the mindset and action of those participating. Even I have to look at what programs and systems I run in my business and ask myself the questions I am about to ask of you. If you are struggling in business, consider these questions:

1.) Do you know exactly how much money you made (or lost) in the last 30 days? I mean down to the penny.

2.) Do you know exactly how many people came through your “system” in the last 30 days?

3.) Do you know exactly how many sales you made in the last 30 days?

Do you have a written business plan?

Some tough questions


These are three preliminary questions. If you cannot answer these questions, do not worry. 99% of the people in home based businesses cannot. Here is a list of questions that you may consider at this point:

1.) Do you have a WRITTEN business plan?

It is a proven statistic that of the 3% of people that get what they want have a written business plan. Most people believe they have a business plan, but it is just in their head.

2.) How many people did you talk to about your product in the last 30 days?

Make an immediate goal to speak to 3 people each day for the next 30 days. Notice I did not say “sell” to 3 people. Just talk to them. Ask questions like, “I know you are very healthy, but do you know of anyone that is looking to improve their health?” or

“I know you are financially set, but do you know of anyone that is looking to improve their financial situation?

If you have a product other than health or finances, just substitute your info for “health” or “finances”.

3.) How many people did you talk to about your opportunity in the last 30 days?

Make an immediate goal to speak to 3 people each day for the next 30 days. Notice I did not say “sponsor” 3 people. Just talk to them. The same kind of questions apply as in #2.

4.) How many people did you ask to help you in the last 30 days?

A.) Do you have a mentor?

B.) Upline support??

C.) Do you have a coach?

D.) Who holds you accountable?

I will make you a deal. If you have nobody to help, just email me and I will help you get started on a path for free. My email is esuccessnet@yahoo.com You have to email me for some assistance only if you want to!



I wish everyone great success in any business they chose. Are you ready to succeed?
