Probably before you joined your M.L.M business your day was already “full.” Then you added building a business into that already full schedule. So of course you will feel even more busy and unorganized. The first thing to understand is this is normal to feel this scattered feeling.

An odd thing that I’ve experienced is that I normally will – eventually – raise my productivity level to meet my obligations – no matter what.

You must have a website to compete and find customers, regardless of the size of your company. Without a website, your business is at a huge disadvantage.

Rich dad said, “The most successful people in life are the ones who ask questions. They’re always learning. They’re always growing. They’re always pushing.”

Conversely, rich dad said, “The losers in life think they have all the answers. They can’t learn because they’re too busy telling everyone what they know. They can’t grow because they’re too busy telling everyone else where they need to grow. They can’t push because they think they’ve already arrived.”

Over the years, I’ve taken rich dad’s lesson to heart and tried my best to always ask questions so that I can learn, grow, and push myself to become more successful. …

How do you know what product or service to market from home? This question is answered by another question:

What is your passion?

Without passion, success is impossible.

Without passion, your potential customers and clients will not believe what you’re telling them. You can’t fake it! Passion is the force that drives a home based business and keeps it moving forward.
