Home-Based Business… At Work?

How to shift from “Employed”…

…to “Entrepreneur” without cutting off your umbilical-cash-cord…

Got to thinking the other day about something I hear consistently from “wanna-be-prenuers” which boils down to this…

“i want to work for myself, run my own business, start earning some extra money, but I can’t afford losing my paycheck because of the bills I’ve already got…”

Or…

“I’m in a really good paying JOB and don’t want to jeopardize what I’m earning by leaving my 9-9 paycheck…”

What does this really boil down to?

…Fear.

Cutting the weekly umbilical cash-cord, is one of the hardest things to do as a wanna-be-entrepreneur…

…leaving the security of a paycheck behind in hopes of finding an even bigger reward is, in many cases, too much a risk for most to take…

And the truth is, many people AREN’T cut out for a Home-Based Business… (especially if you aren’t willing to “burn your boats behind you” in order to give your business a fighting chance…)

But many who are destined to be home-based big-shots, never take the leap of faith because of this fear…

So what can you do in order to get your feet wet as a work-from-home-green-ear, without cutting off your main stay check?

The answer is quite simple…

Ask your employer for an opportunity to earn some extra revenue by creating some financial results for the company…

I.E.

If you are wanting to develop your sales ability or get over your fear of the phone, ask to ghost a sales rep, or even jump on the phone yourself to handle some customer service issues, maybe even try to close a few sales (heaven forbid :O)

or…

If you want to develop your copywriting skills, ask to contribute to the blog, write some emails, test a new sales letter or sales-letter video against their existing material (which very few have)…

or…

If you want to develop your speaking skills, ask to help on a presentation, speak to your company team members about how to improve areas of your specialty, and take helpful criticism from the group to improve your speaking…

NOTE:

3 things happen here:

  1.  Fear Reduction:Doing the thing you fear most, is the only cure for the thing you fear most..

    As you do these things more and more you’ll realize that they aren’t so bad, and eventually you’ll start to get the hang of “making money” for others from start to finish…

  2. Revenue Creation:Nothing in the world is as sweet a sensation as generating money through your direct effort (well maybe 1 thing is sweeter feeling :O)…

    And once you get the “Cash-generation” bug, you’ll be hard pressed not to want to do it over and over again (eventually feeling confident enough to do it for yourself)

  3. Confidence Building:I say all the time, the key to taking action and getting results is a 5 step process…

    Repetition, Familiarity, Confidence, Action and Results…
    Repetition Creates familiarity.
    Familiarity Builds Confidence…
    Confidence Promotes Action…

    And

    Action Nets Results.

    Measure and Improve your Results to profit, and you are
    an entrepreneur just waiting to cut his umbilical cord…

WARNING: As a result of you being bold enough to offer to help the company make more money, they’ll be hard pressed to let you go when you finally decide to pull the cord.

Don’t be surprised if they offer you a management position with a nice cushy pension (if those still exist :O)

Either way, face your fears, ask for the opportunity and chase down your dreams…

After all, If you don’t have the courage to stand up to your boss and ask for these things, then how can you handle working in the “real world” as an entrepreneur?

Take action and close my friend…

    Great advice Greg…except I’d like to make one suggestion…do it for yourself instead of your employer. One of the biggest fears is wondering if you are worth it! Get over it and make yourself the best you can be in your own business and you’ll probably surprise yourself.

    P.S. Get in Greg’s training…it’ll be the best decision you make today for your business (not a paid endorsement…Greg is awesome!!)
