Home Business Los Angeles-Hard Headed? A Home Business May be for You!

Home Business Los Angeles-Hard Headed? A Home Business May be for You!

Many people try every day to start a home business of their own, but very few succeed. It takes perserverance, dedication and patience to be successful in starting your own home business. It also takes a willingness to learn. If you don't have these qualities, you shouldn't even waste your time.

I began my long journey into the world of working at home nearly a year ago. At that time, I had no idea what SEO, html or anything else I saw on the web meant. It was all totally greek to me, I was doing good to open an e-mail!

I began by looking at other people's websites. I would read what they had to say, click on their links to see what was there. When I came upon words that I thought might be something I needed to know, I would do a search on it to find out exactly what it was. I keyed in the word "forums", and there it began. I visited forums, read what other people in the home business world were doing, studied some more until I would figure out exactly how something worked. I am one of those people who actually learn better on my own, figuring something out myself, without someone telling me how to do it.

For months I would study one subject until I felt comfortable that I knew what it was, and how to do it. I would then move on to another area, study that until I knew all about it. My husband thought I had lost my mind. Who in the world would set on a computer, 8 hours a day making NO money, and just keep doing it day after day? Me! I am just THAT hard-headed.
Over the course of about 9 or 10 months, I learned all about building websites (I have built every website I now have in my business), what Search Engine Optimization is, article marketing, building an opt-in list, link exchange and everything else that goes along with internet marketing. I am not an expert by any means, but I do have enough knowledge that I am now making money with my home business!

All of this just to let all of you would-be entrepreneurs know that you don't have to be a genius to start your own home based business. You really don't even have to be all that smart - just hard headed and stubborn like me. It's hard, time-consuming and sometimes very confusing and intimidating. But don't give up! With enough reading, studying, patience and tenacity, you absolutely CAN do it!
