Home Business Tips – Why God Gave Us Two Ears and One Mouth

There is a reason why God gave us two ears and only one mouth. Sadly, many home business owners don’t understand that reason and that’s why they fail with their home business. Well, in this article, I’m going to explain to you why this is true so that hopefully, after you’re done reading, you won’t make the same fool mistakes that 97% of the people online who run their own business make.

Okay, I probably don’t really have to explain to you that the reason we have two ears and one mouth is so that we listen more than we speak. A wise man once said that you can’t learn anything when you’re mouth is always jabbering. Think about it…anything that comes out of your mouth, you already know. So you’re learning absolutely nothing. It’s only when you listen to others that you become educated. Ah, but who should you be listening to? That’s the key.

As a home business owner, you should be listening to two groups of people. The first group is other home business owners who are already having success. This is especially true if you’re first starting out as your knowledge of running your business is pretty limited. By listening to those who have done this for a while and have shown that they’ve achieved success, you’ll learn what to do and what not to do. This can save you a lot of time in reaching your ultimate goal…running a successful business.

But you should also be listening to another group of people. And this is where so many drop the ball. I’m talking about listening to your customers, or potential customers. They’re going to tell you what they like and don’t like about your business. If they think your product is overpriced or shoddy, they’ll let you know. If they think your customer service is poor, they’ll let you know that too. And if there is no market for your product, they’ll let you know that too with their pocketbooks.

You can’t possibly grow your business if you lock yourself up in your own little world and listen to nothing but your own thoughts. You need the input of others…those who know how to run a business and those who know what they want in a product or service. Only then can you really reach your potential as a home business owner.

Home Business Tips – Why Are You Not Making Any Money?

A question I hear a lot, especially on forums, is this one:

“Why am I not making any money?”

Well, unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Usually, it will be followed by a brief rundown of what the person is doing to try to make a living online. What is the case, more often than not, is that the problems are many. I’m going to go over the most common in this article, though this list is by no means all exhaustive.

At the top of the list though, is no overall plan. Most home business owners will tackle their business by taking on some aspect of marketing, which in itself is not a business model. For example, they’ll say that they want to market affiliate products. The problem is, they’re all over the map, promoting everything and anything they can get their hands on. This usually leads to disaster because they are spread too thin. In other words, they need to focus their efforts in one area.

Another big problem is skill set. As much as people don’t want to hear this, some folks are just not cut out to run a business. They don’t have the discipline to get up each morning for one thing. They don’t have the necessary skills, such as writing, web design, programming, marketing or whatever and they don’t have the money to outsource the things that they can’t do. This leaves them in a situation where they are behind the 8-ball before they even begin. Like it or not, you can’t be as dumb as a stump and run a business unless you are loaded enough to just hire folks to run it for you.

Then there is the problem of improper research or not enough research. I have seen way too many home business owners decide that they’re going to sell XYZ and when all is said and done, XYZ has no market demand either because nobody cares about it or there is so much free information available that there is no need to pay for it. What ultimately ends up happening is that the home business owner puts up a site that MAY get a lot of traffic, but once the prospect sees the info needs to be paid for, they go elsewhere.

As I said, this list is by no means exhaustive, but these are the most common problems that home business owners face when trying to launch their business online. Conquer these few things and you’ll give yourself the best chance of actually running a successful home business.
