How to Start A Home Business in 2018
You have decided to make 2018 the year of a Home Business Startup and now the business begins with finding out what you should do. You will read about scams, why people start a business, what programs you may need to build your business and what training you should consider. Remember, it’s like leaving school. The job you want looks good and when you arrive. You need training and the right information so you are working the way you should. A home business is no different.
You have either a problem of thinking what to do or know exactly what you need and know how to.
As you may already be aware there are literally dozens of offers online and figuring out which one to do is the question of the day.
The Bad Side of an Online Income
This is important and must be aware of when looking for a home business. You must be aware of scams in starting a home business to ensure you are not hit by a scam and lose your hard-earning cash. It is tough and after been a victim of a scam myself I know exactly what it’s like to lose that well-earned money.
When considering a business you should look at these sites
- Australia, https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/ is a very good site to learn more about scams
- USA https://www.usa.gov/common-scams-frauds
- USA https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/scam-alerts
- Binary Scams https://www.binaryoptionswatchdog.com/all-binary-options-scams/
- Bitcoin Scams https://www.scambitcoin.com/crypto-currency-day-trading/
There are many other sites, but the above is a good list above. Ensure you do your reviews. There are many sites where people complain about scams and there are 2 ways of looking at someone calling a business a scam
- They were scammed and the business has a history of scamming
- The person calls a business a scam as they have not investigated the business properly. In fact, they start something which they didn’t understand and start a business which is worthwhile. But, they will call it a scam. There are many people looking for easy money. And if it is not easy, its a scam.
Why do people Start a Home Business?
There are many reasons people look for a business online. Both financial and looking for a challenge.
- A Product to Sell Online
- This is someone who has a product to sell and want to make a living selling their item and may use an affiliate program to have others sell them
- Job Loss
- People have lost their jobs and looking for a new income source
- Income Top-up
- You have a job, but your bills – Utilities, Mortgage, day to day living is expensive
- Retirement extra income
- Retired people looking for extra income as they need the income to live
- This is for those who have done well in life and looking for a new challenge
- First Job
- Difficulty finding a job leaving college, university or school and looking for a good income source
What do you know about Working Online?
Probably not much, you see the hype and the excitement of working from home. You will see various adverts for people living in luxury homes, the latest car and boat on the back of the 4-wheel drive etc.
The thing is, each of these people started just like you. They had to find out what to do to start and what to do next. Then once they have made it, they will talk to you about how to be a millionaire in months.
But, is it really like this?
To some working online is something they take very easily. Each person is different in their mindset and what they can learn quickly and how fast they take action.
Many people though will need to learn what to do and some learn quickly and others take longer to understand what to do next.
In fact, we are individuals. Like myself, I’ve seen people who have taken to it naturally and made a fortune and then you see some just ambling along trying their best and get there either slowly or give up as it takes to long, to hard or expensive.
It reminds me the difference between a Grand Prix versus a dragstrip. Which one are you?
- The Grandprix driver will spend hours driving around in circles and after a number of hours they either win or lose
- The Dragstrip. You get in a car and you have 5 secs more or less to go over the finish line
The thing is each person will cross the finish line and its how you decide to get there. Don’t worry, when you learn to like the above drivers from mentors and coaches, you will win when you stick it out.

How To Use All This?
There is so much to learn about working online and this is where a lot of people fall down. They sign up for a deal and all of a sudden they are bombarded with offers, get this, do that etc.
What is really important is to find the one thing you want to do and stick to it until you get it right then move on to the next.
It’s difficult to try and do 10 things at a time (especially men lol) Seriously if you wanted to play, tennis, golf, and soccer, would you not be really good at one and make it the best you can? This is the same online. There are lots of things to do but, it really pays to do what pays off, not stumble over several different things.
