Becoming Self Employed Reality

Becoming self employed by starting your home based business is a challenge that you'll have to consider. Taking control of your life by working for yourself may just be what you want to do right now.

I know quite a few people who wants to start their own home business, but they are afraid to take the first step as they are afraid to fail.

There are a few questions you can ask yourself before before you become self employed. Is there anything in life that is easy? How much do you really want to change your life? How much does being in control of your life and personal finance mean to you? Let's say, in 3 to 5 years time, what would you want your life to look like?

What are the sacrifices you can make to achieve your business goals. Can you stay up late just to make sure your business is going on the right track?

Are you prepared to develop value to your business market and to learn new skills that will help the business to grow?

Are you receptive to new ideas and new ways of thinking? How prepared are you to develop your business by learning as well as growing as a self employed entrepreneur.

Home Based Businesses Are Paid On Values And Not On Hours

When you own your home business, you won't be paid for turning up each day to work. You'll receive your payment based on the value you bring to the market place.

As you will not be paid on hours, but on values, you'll need to add great values to your business marketplace.

There are several factors that will make you not to quit your business dreams. The most written about business staying power are: self discipline, focus and patience.

The last determinant of your business staying power is very important. Many people give up at the slightest notice of anything going wrong with their home business.

Another food for thought is how passionate and excited are you in your new business venture.
