Once you’ve decided that working from home has too many advantages to ignore, and you’ve selected what type of business or company is the perfect ‘vehicle’ for you, you’ll need to plug in to whatever training and orientation your company offers.
If you’re working in an MLM business, your upline will almost certainly offer you the chance to view some training videos, maybe join some webinars or go to some meetings. Your mentor should offer you some one-on-one training and support, whether that’s face to face, or over a video link such as Skype or Zoom.
But the nitty-gritty training to deal with the everyday processes such as advertising products, and ordering items for customers, is only a small part of the training that you’ll need to be taking up.
To quote the late, great Jim Rohn, “You need to work harder on yourself than you do on your job”. You need ‘bread for your head’. We are talking here about personal development.
There are books, audio recordings for your car stereo, YouTube videos, and any number of other ways of helping you to create the right business mindset to take your business to another level. It is on the other side of becoming a different person that the big rewards lie. If you want to have more, you’ll need to become more.
Personal development is a topic that my blog will touch on again and again, but one thing that recurs as a common theme in all the books is goal setting.
Over the weekend I plan to re-use some posts about goal setting from an old blog of mine. I found them while setting up this blog, and I was fascinated to find out what I had to say. Sometimes a poor memory makes your own mind it’s very own voyage of discovery.
Watch this space over the weekend!
