Mom Succeed Working from Home

Posted by: | Comments (3)

One of the biggest challenges Moms face is juggling all the chores around the house, raising the kids, being a good wife and on top of that add the focus to make an income from home as well.  Any of those things are more than enough for a full time job.  But moms deal with this every single day and are not compensated for it.  So to start something new like a home business it can often times be a challenge.  Of all the moms I’ve worked with and that succeeded to create a part time or even lucrative full time income there are several things they all had in common.  They had open communication with their family, created a schedule for their working hours as if they had to leave their home for a job and stayed consistent over a long period of time.

First off let’s talk about a mom working from home and the family dynamic.  Often times your family becomes very dependent on you and they rely on you.  Some of your time will be focused on your business and creating an income so openly explaining this from the beginning to establish some realistic expectations will help with both your kids and your husband.  These people in your life who love you and probably don’t say thank you enough depend on you.  Once you are not there just the slightest bit they feel a sudden abandonment.  It can create issues in your family that you can avoid from the beginning.

Second, every business on the planet has business hours.  To help your family get used to mom working from home as well as to get your husband accustomed to what is going on setting the standard for business hours will help.  Plus your clients and customers will become accustomed to when you are available based off of when you were. Keeping business hours is one of the hardest and most rewarding things you will due for you and your family when you are a mom working from home.  Creating that separation just slightly will definitely enhance your chances of working from home as a mom and making an income.

The third and final thing that any mom working from home would benefit from is just simply being consistent.  There are no true get rich quick schemes but there are some real genuine ways to work from home.  Being consistent is the only way to learn grow and develop in any single thing we learn.  Starting from home for the very first time is no different.  Open communication and setting up business hours for your business will help with this.  Your success ultimately depends on your dedication even if it’s only 2 hours a day proof of your dedication is how often you actually apply those two hours.

It doesn’t matter if you are similar to a Michelle Tascoe who has one baby at home and just made 6,000 dollars in one month or if you are like Jennifer Murphy who had 4 kids and made 92,000 her first year.  To have that level of success as I watched how both of them grew their incomes as we worked together the fact remains.  You must openly communicate with your family, set a schedule and be consistent and you will have success.

Thank Moms for all you do!

Continuing on our training tips, to have a lucrative home business training is key.  It must be complete and typically the best way to do that is to be multifaceted.  Here are some examples of what I mean.  You as a leader must be able to give specific steps to succeed that you do that work to each and every brand new person you work with, but you can’t stop there.  Everyone is different and every one learns differently and at their own pace.

Remember when you first started working from home or anything new for that matter.  Did someone ever share a tip or technique and you did not quite get it the first time?  Or you forgot it until someone said it later at a different time and you realized it?  Every single skill we learn in life from, riding a bike to driving or even our careers we all learned it differently and at different speeds.  So your training approach can’t be a simple training “book or audio” or a monthly call or even a Saturday training or even an annual seminar, it has to strategically be every thing combined.  Next I’ll share with you an example of our training and you’ll see why it works for so many people.

There are several layers of our training in DFI and with just one layer a person can get the info to succeed but people learn differently at different speeds.

1.  Automated Training:  When a new associate owns a DFI Live marketing system starting with the Boot camp and Quick Start and even detailed Quick Start Training in an automated form they have all the answers they need to be successful.  They can get these answers when they need them day or night.

2.  One on One Director Support:  With our company you are assigned one of our Directors as a mentor to support you one on one.  Someone who is being successful and actively building a lucrative home business.  They have all the knowledge you would need to do what they do except they also have that human touch.  No Director would be in the position they are in if they were not actively helping people to succeed.

3.  Core Training Calls:  Once again we need that human touch not just a book, manual or system.  Our core training calls consist of a simple to follow format to help a person who is serious no matter what step of the business they are in.  All of the calls are hosted by successful 6 figure income earners who are helping others become successful, passing on their knowledge.  All calls are LIVE and interactive so you can ask someone else how they build a lucrative income or make money from home.

Monday Evening, is the New Associate Training Calls were a successful Director is talking about topics specifically to do with a brand new person just getting started in their business and what they need to focus on first to have success.

Tuesday Evening, Learn how to get clients with our advertising companies and when they are calling you learn what to say to them.  Here new people and 6 Figure Income Earners role play what they say and how they say it.  If you can’t get clients and you don’t know what to say to them how could you possibly have success?

Thursday Evening, 6 Figure Income call is typically a call with more advanced training topics.  Once you have the basics down but you want to become more efficient or make more money quicker this is were you would plug into. 

Saturday Morning, On The Job Training is a live training call were successful directors actually are live on the phone calling clients and letting others listen in.  Toward the end of the call they open it up for questions about what they say or how they say it.  The even share which one of our advertising firms they are working with to get our clients.  We don’t have to do our own marketing.

There is definitely something to be said about having other people help train your new associate.  It saves you time and a person who may not be exactly like you can learn from someone else they may relate too.  Sometimes a stranger can say something much more impactful than you can because of your one on one connection.  Think about your kids has someone ever said something to them and your kids acted like it was the best advice they have ever gotten?  You may have been saying it all along but you were to close.  Our Core training calls and Dani Johnson help with that type of training to create 6 Figure or Lucrative successful home businesses.

4. Dani Johnson First Steps to Success:  Dani Johnson who went from homeless to millionaire in two years working from home does home business specific training events sharing how she created those kind of results.  You may have seen her on TV recently. Her training events called First Steps to Success has been the reason I’ve personally seen so many people create a 6 Figure Income in DFI.  It’s a live training event that you can travel too and meet some of the Directors you hear on our calls face to face.  But being immersed in that type of an environment which is not rah rah motivational but specific techniques and strategies are shared that you can apply, leads to incredible skill development and a lucrative income.

In retrospect a single form of training that can provide you with all the answers you need is good.  But having a multifaceted approach to match each person’s time line as they develop professionally that gives them different environments to learn from will lead to much greater success.  All you have to do is look at the success and growth that DFI has experienced in the home business industry.

DFI as an organization grew 38.9% during the month of Feb. 2010.  The largest growth in the 15 year history of Coastal Travel and quite likely the largest growth of any company in the home business industry.  Apparently the training works!  Stay tuned for more results!

Helping anyone create a 6 figure income is certainly not an easy task. Helping a stay home mom do it just simply by the nature of her lifestyle is even more difficult. We all know that stay home moms are the most over worked and under paid people on the planet. So for a mom who wants to make a six figure income from home three things must be in a place. First a simple process that you’ve followed your self, second you need to let the world know and find the moms with the right motivation and finally you must have full proof way for her to acquire clients and/or customers.

Let’s start with the simple process. Are you in a real home business that works? I know that sounds like a dumb question but it has to be simple and work for everyone. Moms and certainly stay home moms are the busiest people on the planet. So for a mom to make a six figure income it does not have to be “easy” it has to be simple and doable. If you are going to help anyone make a 6 figure income have you already done it? Have you helped other people create that level of income? On our team we have become very intentional on how the top income earners and the newest income earners build their business. It’s the exact same. When helping someone become successful you can generalize the process, you have to be very exact and specific in your game plan. One way to prove if a mom can do it is easy; just ask is this simple enough I can get 14 year old kids to do it? Not that mom’s are on the same level as a 14 year old kid but she is extremely busy and doesn’t have 4 years to succeed otherwise she would just go to college or get another job!

Second you need to let the world what you are doing very strategically so you can find those that are serious. The right opportunity definitely requires the right stay home mom. The process must be simple but the stay home mom but have a strong desire as well. Most moms have a ton going on all day long and if the desire to create a solid professional level of income from home is not there she will get distracted and procrastinate. Naturally when we have a lot on our plates we tend to do what we are most comfortable with first. Any new business adventure will not survive with that type of reason. Most mom’s have been a stay home mom most of their adult life. Starting a business or even making a 6 figure income from home is not even something she may have ever considered before. So you definitely have to ensure that the determination is there. Simply conduct an interview with her just like you would for any other job or business you have.

Finally you have to ensure you have a solid proven way of helping the new stay home mom you are working with get new clients to become a 6 figure income earner. Moms don’t have time to play around. The time they do have available is valuable. I have advertising companies that guarantee me a specific response via the Internet and that’s how I’ve built 95% of my business and I introduce every single new business partner I work with to them. We build a business in the exact same way. I’m extremely confident that when I’ve selected a new mom to work with and they have the right motivation that they have an above average shot ad doing well and making a 6 figure income.

We need three primary things to help a stay home mom make a 6 figure income. First game plan on how you are going to get a mom to that level of success, so simple you know a motivated 14 year old could do it. Then you need to find the right mom, one with a high level of desire and motivation. Finally you must be able to ensure that getting clients is not a chore but rather a simple task. It has to work so well it is your primary way of building a business. All of your pieces have to come together and have allowed you to build a successful income part time. Most moms can only work part time. You may have made a ton of money but if it was not possible part time then you are not going to be helping any stay home mom.

What does the bible say about working from home? What does the bible say about owning your own business? While at church this morning I read something that made a light bulb go off. It’s a principle we’ve all heard but never thought it applied to working from home.

A Translation from the Message:

A Lesson from the Ant

6 -11 You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing?

How long before you get out of bed? A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next? Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent house guest!

It amazes me with the freedom you can live owning your own business or even working from home how so many of us seem to allow our flesh to let us skip basic success principals.

Yes! There is tons of freedom working for yourself. The King James Version of the above scripture says the aunt works with out a ruler or overseer. IE NO BOSS Why do we attempt to work from home to gain wealth and freedom and many times we start to assume that we don’t really need to work?

What is interesting also is look what kind of work the ant is doing? Storing up food and stockpiling provisions… that’s only productive work. We have to be careful that we are productive and not just busy, checking email or office stuff.

Now I’m not a fan of “working” none of us are. But it’s way better to work for our selves and have that freedom vs work for someone else. Working from home you have ultimate freedom. I don’t know how many times when I worked from home I heard people say things like,

“I don’t need to work 40 hours a week” (do what it takes but remember you can work diligently for yourself or someone else, if there’s a job available when you need it.)

“I control my own schedule!” (I agree 100% so dictate when you do work versus choosing not to work at all)

“I need to spend more time with my family!“(we should all spend more time with our family, that’s why we make a living but let’s not use our family as an excuse, they don’t want us to be poor either)

Don’t make excuses not to work diligently most of the people I knew who made the above statements are no longer working without a ruler or overseer. ie BOSS

You can make an incredible income from home with amazing freedom but so many times we believe in making money with out doing nothing. When I worked with DFI marketing the Coastal Travel package from home it was the easiest money I ever made in my life but I had to work for it. It was not 40 hours a week but it was constant diligent work maybe 6 hours a day as our only source of income and we made 20-30,000 a month many months.

Look today as you think about your own business choose to pursue your goals and dreams and work like the ant. Surround your self with as many ants as you can… pass this on to many of your friends and colleagues.

Yours Truly,
Stacy O’Quinn
