In November 2004, I sold my house and was ready to embark on a round the world trip of a lifetime. I did not want to have to do all those mundane jobs travelers do so I scoured the Internet for work at home opportunities. I joined SFI in the same month.
I attempted to start my own website promoting affiliate programs prior to joining SFI and had limited success. Under the guidance of my sponsor, Kevin Hass, I made a steady climb with my SFI business. Like most people I was skeptical about the program as I had been burnt before before Internet hype and scams. However, I'm not sure what it was with SFI, I just felt they had an honesty to them that I had not found before. This was realized when after upgrading in my first month SFI sent me a commission check! It was small, in fact less than $ 4.00 but you know what, they sent it to me. (I was not 100% relying on this money to travel as the bus fair to the airport would have used my first SFI check!) This experience made me realize that if they actually took the time to organize that check, for such a small amount , They must be a legitimate company, and what's more they had stuck to their promise!
Shortly after joining SFI, in January 2005 I was able to launch my own website: http://homebusiness-no1.ws . This was made possible through the Wealth Online Website (WOW) system. The guys at WOW set up my site for me within 48 hours and provided the web hosting for a very reasonable price. The WOW system enabled me to bring together 6 legitimate programs that would provide me with multiple streams of income. Having multiple streams of income is the only way to succeed: why do you think your supermarket now sells car insurance or loans? There are only so many tins of beans you can sell.
I am taking this opportunity head-on, and am slowly beginning to build the business that I'm confident with result in success. My sponsor, Kevin Hass, has been instrumental in all of my progress through the home business jungle, and I will aim to do the same for my team members.
I have learned a few very important things about home-based businesses:
1. If you want to be successful you must work your business and take action every day. If by upgrading you can earn more money, then upgrade, especially if that is how you will earn your money, by others upgrading!
2. Be patient. Sometimes it will be frustrating. It will not happen overnight, but keep plugging away. It is almost a business certy that any big business went through growing pains before it succeeded. Those that do succeed do not give up.
3. Develop a plan! Every business needs a business plan. It seems that since we work from home most of us forget this. Spend time developing your home business plan, stick to your plan, and you will achieve your goals.
I will not pretend to be financially secure or even in a position where my WOW site can support me independently yet. But I already see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is definitely not a get rich quick scheme, but a legtimate business opportunity. Any business takes time to build and achieve your goals. The power of the Internet has changed many things but some of the business aspects are the same online and offline. The WOW system can help you achieve your goals, and as my results improve I am more and more glad I took action and joined! My traveling has been a great adventure, and so is my home business venture. They are complimenting each other, because as I travel I market my business to everyone I meet. My business is growing daily and my Internet business can be managed from anywhere in the World!
