10 Best Home Based Business Success Tools – #2 – A Fantastic Sponsor Or Business Coach

This is the second in a series of articles and videos that I have put together to give you a comprehensive overview of the 10 best home based business success tools. These are the most important things you will need to succeed in any home based business. Here is the list at a glance:No. 1 – A Great Marketing System

No. 3 – A Millionaire Mindset
No. 4 – A Big Dream That Fuels Your Engine
No. 5 – A Strong Desire to Succeed
No. 6 – A Powerful Belief in Your Own Ability
No. 7 – A Stubborn Determination to Keep Going
No. 8 – A Continuing Education
No. 9 – A Purpose Beyond The Money
No. 10 – A Product You Can Connect With PersonallyIn this article we focus on the importance of having A FANTASTIC SPONSOR OR BUSINESS COACH. Let me start with a question: at what point did you realize that you weren’t going to make a million dollars in your first month with the ‘easy system’ you purchased? We’ve all heard the saying that money doesn’t grow on trees. This is especially true for home based businesses. Most of us begin our online business enterprises with big plans and ambitious goals only to realize very quickly that marketing on the internet is like visiting another planet. There is so much to learn that you can be overwhelmed to the point of paralysis. 
Many companies have training modules that are designed to guide you through the process of setting up and running a website, choosing from the various marketing strategies, following up with leads, etc. Where a lot of them fall short though, is in the details. I can’t tell you how many companies I bought into that immediately starting telling me to join a list builder and send out ezines, or upload videos to YouTube and write a blog, and then concluded with a big you-can-do-it statement.My reaction was always the same: What’s a ‘list builder’; a who-zine? I didn’t own a video camera, and I thought a blog was something my cat had coughed up. When you’re new to all this, where do you even begin? Many people at this point will give up, because it is so overwhelming.
But I say take heart! It’s a matter of finding a mentor, a guide who will take you by the hand and set your feet upon the path to success. Making number two on my list of 10 best home based business success tools is having a fantastic sponsor or business coach; someone on the sidelines cheering you on, answering your questions, guiding you to resources for training that can cut your learning curve in half and keep you pushing forward through every roadblock. Find yourself a mentor who will be available, one who will offer constructive criticism, will help you set goals and formalize a plan to help you achieve them. This can make the difference between spinning your wheels and exploding your sales beyond your wildest expectations.
If you’re still looking for a company to partner with, your due diligence should include interviewing your potential sponsor in-depth. If your sponsor is not 100% motivated to help you succeed with a plan in place for doing so, try to find another one. If you can’t find one in the company you are considering, then start looking for a different company, because chances are that company doesn’t put a huge emphasis on coaching.
If you are already partnered up with a company you like, but your sponsor isn’t readily available to you for help and guidance, don’t worry. There are plenty of independent business coaches out there who specialize in teaching you how to build your customer base, attract leads, drive traffic to your website. Research them thoroughly because they are NOT all alike. Start with one concept that you want to master, like blogging, or article marketing, or even setting up a website homepage; find a coach or mentor who offers services in that skill set, then avail yourself of any free material they offer first. If you find that these resources offer good content, something you can actually use, then it might be worth it to purchase their educational product or service.
A fantastic sponsor or business coach will put you miles ahead of your competition. And here’s a little gold nugget in your search for the right one: any mentor worth his salt will focus first on getting your mind wrapped around success. They will introduce you to number three of my 10 best home based business success tools, which I’ll cover in detail in my next article in the series: No 3 – A Millionaire Mindset.
