If you run a home business, there are three things you need if you want to be successful:

1. Get yourself a mentor or a guru
You?ve got a fantastic business idea, you?ve done thorough research and your business plan says you should be debt-free by year three. Wonderful! But how do you make sure your home business reaches the dizzy heights of success as smoothly and as quickly as it should? Especially if you have no web experience, no copywriting experience or internet marketing experience, for example?

You need to get yourself a mentor or a guru who will help to keep your mind focused. This will not be your best friend who you gossip with, your spouse (unless you can keep it strictly business), but will be someone who has no emotional ties to you or your business and can keep a clear head.

You see, 90% of home business start-ups don?t know what they are doing. And instead of doing the smart thing and seeking out an expert for help, they’ll just struggle along trying this and that and losing money, until they’re finally forced out of business.

Be one of the 10% who get their act together and have the home business success that others can only dream of.

2. Have a back-up plan
Not having a back-up plan for your home business is like being stuck out in the desert with a flat tyre without a spare. I know it?s hard to conceive that after doing all your homework and setting up your online business sensibly and systematically your business will fail. Sometimes, no matter how hard our ideas just don’t work and we have to scrap them.

That’s why you should always have a back-up plan. Of course, you must give your home business a chance to succeed, but if it?s not achieving what you set it out to achieve and you have looked back at your business plan to make sure you have tried everything you planned to, then don’t be afraid to chance direction or pull the plug on your home business all together and move on to plan B.

3. Your desire and determination must be relentless
Hands up if you wish you could wake up one morning and have someone hand you a million pounds tax free for you to spend it as you wish?I know that would suit me just fine.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but?well that?s just not going to happen. So, in the real world we have to work for our money ? and if you run your own home business, then you must work even harder.

Of all the successful business people I have interviewed and profiled on www.motherswhowork.co.uk, one thing that always stands out if their determination and work ethic. Being lazy, procrastinating and producing ?average? quality work will not get you to the top ?so once you make your mind up to run your own business, you must keep the momentum going.

This is the number one reason why most people don’t succeed in business. They don’t have relentless desire and determination. Just remember: any success you achieve will be in direct proportion to
your desire and determination. The more desire and determination you have, the greater will be your success!”

That’s the mindset you have to have. You have to want to succeed with your home business more than anything else in the world ? anything!
