If you are trying to build a profitable home based business with no experience, the 2 things you need more then anything else. Help and training from people who have already been there, done that and are willing to help you each and ever step of the way. This is the secret to massive success in this industry for someone who is new and has no experience.
There is a lot that goes into a profitable home based business. To try and learn everything on your own will take you a very long time, and could end up being very costly. This is why it is important to surround yourself with people that are already successful in the home based business industry, and that are willing to help you achieve the same level of success.
Think of it this way… Let’s say you and a friend come across two home business opportunities. You join one tells you exactly what you need to do in order to achieve a 5 figure per month income and leaves you to figure it out on your own.
Your friend joins an opportunity that also tells you what to do to earn a 5 figure per month income, but instead of leaving you to figure it out on his own, they offer to provide him with training & guidance on how to do it. Who do you think will build a profitable home based business?
If you guessed your friend you are correct. If you’ve ever heard of all these crazy success stories in the home business industry where people went from 0 to 10, 20, or 30 thousand per month within their first month, this is 95% of the reason why. Because they had help and training from someone who had already been successful in this industry.
Of course it still takes effort on the part of the person (you), but it’s much easier when you know what to do and have someone to show you exactly how to do it. Someone with no experience cannot be expected to know what to do in order to build a profitable home based business.
In the home business industry, with a good opportunity and solid help and training on what to do, the sky is the limit as far as income potential.
Let’s face it, no matter what value our electorate or politicians put on agriculture, without us, no one eats. This indeed, insures our industry, but more so, it gives clout to farmers and the agricultural industry world-wide. Unfortunately, all too often there is intervention from academics, those who may have never farmed themselves, or grew up on a farm, and that is somewhat problematic as you and I both know.
To illustrate this point and to shed some light on this topic, there was an interesting article in Seed Daily Online News recently entitled; “UN Expert Calls for Farming Changes” by the staff writers in Geneva – posted on October 16, 2010. Amongst the concerns were that 14% of all man-caused greenhouse emissions came from agriculture. Still, I’d like to remind my readers that only 2.6% of all CO2 in the atmosphere is man-made anyway. Other issues included;
1.-Over use of chemical fertilizers and runoff into the ocean and lakes (algae blooms and dead zones).
2.-Too much cultivation, plowing, and soil turn over challenging water resources.
3.-Tired soil and a predicted drop in crop yields of 50% in Africa in the next decade (even though they’ve been climbing for 50-years).
4.-Wheat Fungus or Ug99 fungus.
5.-Locust Plagues increasing due to water resources and climate change.
It appears that the UN was business making headlines on World Food Day, and they certainly got some media attention, but is this really a major problem and are these truly the issues we should be addressing here and now? Indeed, it is good to be “United Against Hunger” as they state, and carbon-neutral farming and agriculture is possible, but is that really a viable option or will it exacerbate the issues above?
Agriculture is something that central governments or world leaders are not so good at. In fact, it has never really worked. When government gets in the way of distribution or forces quotas, or involves itself in trade disputes, everyone loses and the price goes up. And that isn’t always good for the farmer, as usually the commodity brokers make the excess due to fear or manipulated supply and demand issues. As much as none of us farmers want to sit in committees with bureaucrats to enlighten them on reality, it appears we have no choice.
Thus, we must send our association representatives, or pay a lobbyist or lawyer to make sure our best interests are not thrown under the bus. Worst of all, if we lose, everyone loses, and people starve – when people starve people die, and that is simply unacceptable – okay so, you already know how serious this issue is, so please consider all this.
