keys to successMany times people ask me what is needed to create a profitable home based business. There are many necessary elements to make a home based business work. As we explore these elements, we can see how when blended together properly they can create not only a profitable home based business but a fun one as well. 


Some Elements Needed to Make a Home Based Business Work  

  • Personal Attributes

  • Life Plan

  • Product or Service

  • Business Plan

  • Marketing

  • Customer Service

  • Communication

  • Networking

  • Accounting

  • Proper Products or Tools

 Personal Attributes 

I mention some of the personal attributes needed in my article;What Skills are needed for a Business Startup? These attributes are discipline, determination, perseverance, time management and knowledge. I believe that everyone has to some degree or another, all of these attributes. Sometimes they just need to be honed.

Life Plan  

Of course besides those attributes that you can learn, there is the most important question of all. What do you want out of life and how will a profitable home based business help you achieve your personal and professional goals. This is called a life plan. Knowing what you want in your life and creating a business around your goals will give you the perspective needed to make a home based business work. 

I know that many people start their business first without regard to their personal goals. I have seen the terrible statistics of business startup failures for the first 3 years. That is why I advocate a life plan first then business plan.  

Product or Service

Once you have an idea of what you want out of life and have your life plan, then you are ready to build your profitable home based business around your goals. What are you truly passionate about? What do you know more about then most people? If you are not sure where to start I have an article called; Where’s Your Passion? - Small Business Startup Idea that will give you some pointers on how to get the creative juices going and explains more about business passion.

The research you do on a hot target market will help you to find products and or services that are in high demand.

A satisfied customer will not only tell other people about your business, they will also continue to purchase which creates repeat sales. Your marketing efforts are now compounding! That makes your home based business work so much easier.
