"If it's meant to be, it's up to me."

This quote could not be any truer concerning success in any work at home opportunity. When we take the leap, and decide to work for ourselves, from the comfort of our own homes, it's not always easy to make the decision to actually work. Especially on a nice, hot summer day.

However, I will tell you will get absolutely nowhere by simply going to the beach day in and day out. Or by keeping your house spot-less clean. Not even by spending the day chit-chatting with friends and family. (Even though we would like to tell ourselves, or more so make ourselves believe, that this is Networking...face it, it really just boils down to daily gossip.)

The only way to actually achieve results is by doing! There may not be a boss hanging over head telling you when and how you must do something, but that same boss is also not there to issue you a weekly paycheck. We are our own bosses, and we determine how much our paychecks will be. The only thing left to do is treat your home business with the same respect you would if you were in a traditional office.

Schedule time out of each day to do your prospecting. (And ONLY do prospecting...) Make sure your family and friends know when your "business hours" are, and that you will not be taking any personal calls or visits during that time.

Just because you work from home, doesn't mean that your work is any less important than your neighbor who works a 9 to 5. Give it the time and credit it deserves and you will soon begin to reap the results.
