How to Have a Productive Day in Your Home Business: 2 Easy Tips

 

2 tips how to have productive day home businessThe one thing that can kill people’s chance of success as entrepreneurs is their bad habits, and it’s critical that you know how to have a productive day in your home business, and then actually stick to it!!  As entrepreneurs, we are in control of our own schedules. It is not the responsibility of your sponsor, your Upline, your company leadership or your peers, for you to have a productive day in your home business.

Here are a couple tips for you to start seeing more dollars in your bank account.

 

Tip #1 To Have a Productive Day in Home Business

Every night before you go to sleep, write out what you want to get done for your business the next day. And put a star next to the 2 most important things that you want to get done, more than anything.

You might even want to keep your list next to your bed at night, so that if you think of something during your sleep, you can roll over, write it down and then go right back to sleep. (It will actually help you sleep more soundly).

Then the next day, do the things that you wrote out on your list. And for the 2 most important items, do your best to get them done before 11 am. That way, if other distractions DO get in your way during the day, then at LEAST you’ve done the 2 most important things, and you can still say you had a productive day in your home business.

I know personally, that for me, the nights that I write out what I want to get done the next day, I always have a productive day in my home business, but the nights that I don’t do this simple little task, then I almost always do not have a productive day.

The truth is that as home business owners, it is super easy to get distracted when you sit down to work on your home business. There are some things that will come up in your day, that at first glance you might think are distractions, but they are not. For example, caring for someone in your family (like a sick child, or aging parent or grandparent), or going to your child’s soccer game or school event. Those are GOOD things for you to be doing. They are Life events that give our lives meaning and purpose. And these things are things that should be scheduled into your day.

The distractions I’m talking about are things that come up during the time you’ve set aside to work your home business. Distractions like:

  • taking phone calls unrelated to business during your business hours
  • checking email going through Facebook or other social media (unless it’s specifically to message people for prospecting)
  • doing the laundry
  • walking the dog
  • feeding the dog

All those “distractions” can be taken care of during the day, but don’t do it during the hours you’ve set aside for your business.

Tip #2 to Have a Productive Day in Home Business

Mark off a block of time in your calendar that you are dedicating to your business for that next day, and do not let any distractions, like the ones listed above, get in the way.

If you set aside 1-4 pm as the time to work your home business, then make sure you are sitting down, with your computer, phone, paper and whatever you need to work your business, and do not let other unnecessary distractions get in your way.

It might help to actually pretend that you are in an office environment away from home. If you were in a corporate environment, you probably wouldn’t get up from your desk to go feed the dog or do some laundry, right? So, do that at home.

I hope this information has been helpful. There are many ways to increase productivity for your home business, but I have given you just 2 very important ones, that even if you implemented just these, you will see big changes in your success rate and in your wallet.

How to Follow Up When Prospects Don’t Return Phone Calls or Messages

How to Follow Up When Prospects Don’t Return Phone Calls or Messages network marketingSo, how do you follow up with prospects when they don’t return your phone calls or messages on text or on Facebook? Are you looking for some MLM tips for what you say next?  If you find yourself in this situation, it’s like someone ignoring you with the “Talk to the hand” gesture.  This picture is funny to me; it’s my niece and my son and she was basically saying to him to stop talking about whatever it was he was talking about.  He was annoying her.  And he responded by jokingly pretending he’d bite her hand off.

What you don’t want to be is annoying to your prospects, especially when your prospects are friends and family.  All too often, this happens to people in home business.  When you share your business “too much” this might happen to you. Here are some MLM tips to help you get over this hump in your business. Read the rest of this entry

When Is the Best Time to Talk to Friends and Family About Your Network Marketing Business?

best time talk friends family network marketingTypically, when you start out in any network marketing business, your company’s leaders and your sponsor will tell you to start growing your business by talking to friends and family first. But for some people, that may actually NOT be a good idea.

For the person who is extremely passionate about what they are doing, and full of confidence and certainty and direction of where they want to go with their business, then talking to friends and family first could make complete sense. It’s because you are starting with your own personal network. And you will expand out to their networks and continue to grow and expand through their networks, and their network’s networks and so on.

Are You Obsessed with Your Home Business?

Are You Obsessed with Your Home Business?

obsession home business workAre you Obsessed with your home business? It could be a good thing, but not necessarily.  What else are you so obsessed about in your life? Is it work, business, even exercise, or other things that can get in the way of “life.”

An obsession is not always a good thing, and sometimes something that starts out good, positive and healthy can flip on you.  It happened to me in the past few years trying to find the right home business. It took me a few businesses before I found the one that worked best for me. It also meant that I did a tremendous amount of personal growth, which I loved. I discovered that as I had more growth, and learned more and met some really fantastic people, that I continued to want to learn and learn and grow and improve and it went to the point that I think I became obsessed with it. I was also obsessed with trying to “figure it all out” by learning how to prospect, recruit and close sales. Read the rest of this entry

Who Exactly Are You Recruiting into Your Home Business?

who recruiting home businessAs you are building your home business it’s important to think twice about who exactly you are recruiting. And I mean something much more important than what category of people you are recruiting (for example, recruiting professionals, cold calls, calling leads, friends, family, business cards you pick up around town, etc).

I’m talking about “who” these people really are. Do Read the rest of this entry

The 3 Most Important Questions Your Prospect Has, But Won’t Ask You About Your Home Business

Home Business 3 Questions ProspectWhen you are talking to people about your home business, there are 3 most important questions that your prospect has, but they will probably never ask you. Why won’t they ask? Most likely because they have uncertainty about starting a home business, or uncertainty about you, or they also might not want to look bad in front of you so they won’t say anything. Who knows why they won’t ask you aloud, but it’s important you address them to help put your prospect at ease.

 

What Are These 3 Questions They Have?

1- Can I really do this?

2- Can I get my money back?

3- Is this person (meaning you, the sponsor) really the person to help me? Is this person the leader I need them to be to help me have success in this business?

Let’s say you’ve already had a conversation with the prospect, you’ve sent them to watch or listen to a presentation about your company, and now you are calling them back to follow up. They might be a no show for your call or they do show up and they have a few questions, but then say they “need to think about it.” In either case, you might not have done a good enough job in your first conversation.

VIDEO: 3 Questions Your Prospects Won’t Ask You About Your Home Business

About 90% of whether or not they sign up with you has to do with how you handle that first conversation with them. It will depend on your posture, your mindset (how sure you are about what you are doing and how confident you feel about the success you will experience with your company), the questions you ask, and how well you build up rapport in that first call (especially if it’s someone from the cold market). It’s not about the video or the company presentation. That presentation is more of a third party validation tool. Whether they join you has more to do with your relationship with them.

Find a way to reassure them that yes they can do this, yes they can get their money back and yes, you are the person to help them achieve their goals.

You have to demonstrate to them you are the leader to help them do this.

You may think that you have passion and certainty about your business, but if you have even a sliver of doubt about your abilities, your prospect will be able to sense it. You have to have your mindset right before making your calls with people.

If your posture is strong, then great, but if it’s weak, then you can forget about them signing up with you. They won’t do it. They want to join people who are confident and who know what they are doing, or that they at least have the access to people who do. Even if you haven’t recruited anyone yet, you can still enroll people if your posture is strong. But instead of using your own testimonials of your success, you can lean on the success of other people on your team or in your company.

If someone says “I’m not sure” or “I’ll have to think about it”, then share a story with them of someone who has a similar background to theirs who is having success. You should be able to go into one of your company’s or your team’s Facebook groups and find product, business, and recruiting testimonials that you can share with your prospects. Find a few for people who are Realtors, teachers, small business owners, professionals, stay-at-home moms and dads, college students, secretaries, salespeople, etc, or whatever background is similar to the types of people you are talking to. Get a collection of these stories that you can share with prospects of yours who express a little uncertainty about joining you in your business.

It’s critically important that you answer the 3 questions prospects have before they ever think to ask you about them. Show them how easy and simple your business is. Show them that other people just like them are doing it and they ARE earning their money back. And show them with strong and confident posture that you ARE the leader who can show them the way.
