I’ve heard many people say they are “working hard building a business”. I question at times by what they mean by working hard. I see them playing on facebook, or playing online games. If you’re building a business, always ask yourself, “Are you building a business or playing around?

If you’re building a business, you must be out marketing your product or service. You must be gathering new customers and following up to give good customer service. You must pay attention to your business and treat it as a business.

If you have a full time job, and plan on building a business on the side, you must commit to spending time working and growing that business. You must plan on putting in 1-2 hours or more a day, gathering new customers and sharing your business.

If you’re not getting any place, take a look at your own actions. What did you do this week to work on building your business. Be honest with yourself.

If what you’re doing is not getting you where you want to go, it’s time to take a look at your activities. Don’t kid yourself, or make excuses. I’ve always said you can make money or excuses, but never both.

Spend quality time on your business and over time you will be successful. If ONE person can succeed, then so can you if you are truly serious about making things work.
