S-U-C-C-E-S-S that’s the way we spell success. O.K., so spelling it is easy. What is hard is actually defining success in a personal way that has meaning to you. Because so many people who start a home business today actually fail, let’s take a closer look at how they could have been successful and not even realized it.
One of the biggest problems is that people set larger goals with really no plan for achieving them. For example, as you’re searching around looking at various work from home businesses, you will come across many that offer pictures of fancy homes, yachts, people laying on the beach, and so on.
These people are portrayed as successful, because it presents an image that many of us would like to achieve. You might even read stories of people who earn seven-figure incomes a year and you would like to join them.
There are very few Home Business Opportunities that provide a solid and systematic way to promote your business. This is why the failure rate is over 90% in our industry. There are plenty of people willing to sell you their program and then leave you, high and dry, trying to figure out how to promote your business. I highly recommend you do your due diligence and research before joining any business opportunity.
In reality the majority of people who start a home business of their own will never achieve a full-time income. This can be true for various reasons, but the bottom line is that may not be what you need to define your personal success anyway.
What you really need to do is set achievable goals on a daily basis and then work towards hitting them. An achievable goal could be something as simple as writing and submitting one article with a resource box promoting your website.
Anyone who is serious about their business can set an achievable goal when it comes to promoting it. If you can even do that then you really need to analyze whether you want to have a work from home business or not.
By setting daily goals that you can achieve, you are at developing a attitude of success. The more success than you have on a daily basis, the more long-term success you will have, and the closer you will be to achieving your larger goals.
You might have a goal of refinishing your basement and to do that you need an extra $ 20,000. Although this seems like a large number it is certainly a more achievable than setting a goal of being a millionaire with your own Internet business.
In summary, what were trying to say is that to define your own success, you need to make it personal. You also need to work towards it on a daily basis by setting doable action items. Only then will you be able to define your own work from home business success.
I owe my personal success to aligning myself with successful people willing to share their knowledge and marketing system. Without proper training and support you will be going through the school of hard knocks. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.
Find a Business Opportunity with a good marketing, training, and support system and follow their business plan. I personally have chosen to follow in the footsteps of great mentors and piggy back their success. If you follow these simple guide lines your Home Based Business should be off to a good start and great future.

Black Country Living Museum – The Village Centre – Pawnbroker’s

This is the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, West Midlands.
The museum was established in 1975, and the first buildings moved here in 1976. Since then a 26 acre site has been developed, with the unique conditions of living and working in the Black Country from the mid 19th century to early 20th century.
It is off Tipton Road in Dudley.
This is The Village Centre at the Black Country Living Museum.
It has been built on the low ground at the northern end of the museum site which is surrounded on three sides by canals.
This is the Pawnbroker’s.
The pawnbroker’s shop is housed in a pair of cottages rescued from Himley.
Prior to the Second World War, before the inception of state benefits, pawnshops provided one of the only means for humbler people in society to raise capital or obtain a loan to bolster their income when work was slack.
The front room of the shop displayed unredeemed pledges for sale, but if you wished to pawn an item to raise cash you entered the increased privacy of the panelled pledge room at the rear.
In the building next to the pawnshop the same proprietor runs a second-hand furniture business.
As today, most of the furniture came from bereavement clearance, but some came direct from homes where ‘something better’ had been purchased, or conversely where the owner had fallen on hard times and had to ‘hock’ their bicycle or gramophone to make ends meet.
