Every day around the world, numerous starry-eyed entrepreneurs in various locations begin anew. Starting a home based business can be an exciting and invigorating time and it can give you a new lease on life and your earning potential. But it can also be frustrating and painfully slow too.When things don’t happen as planned, or sales are harder to come by, the fun an excitement of starting a new home based business quickly fades away. And this is precisely the point at which many struggling business owners make the serious mistake of diversification. That is, they wander off their chosen path in search of riches elsewhere.Essentially, it’s a lack of focus and a lack of focus can be fatal to a new business venture. Shiny new objects and opportunities beckon, making it seem like these other options are far easier and more lucrative. It’s “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” syndrome.No question about it, this is a huge problem for anyone starting a home based business today — particularly online. If you subscribe to numerous newsletters and ezines, it’s likely that new offers, specials and discounts are being presented to you on a daily basis. The lures are attractive… the offers strong. But even taking the time to read and consider new product pitches is time that could be better spent growing your new business.Pay attention to the amount of time you spend opening emails and checking out other websites and blogs. Do you find yourself looking at other methods, techniques and promised “solutions” regularly?If you’re willing to monitor your time for just one week, you’ll likely find the major culprit is a lack of focus. Sometimes it’s difficult to admit it because it means accepting responsibility. Also, ongoing learning should be part of the process for every single entrepreneur in the game. But where the trouble lies is in jumping into something completely different because it seemed like the right thing to do.When starting a home based business, you need to be vigilant. Do your research – yes. Create a simple business plan – yes. But you also have to launch into action and stay the course.Considering other options at this point is futile. Remain focused and work your plan. You’ve got to giveyour new home based business a fair shot.Nothing is accomplished by diversifying your interests at this early stage. Once the seed has been planted, you need to nourish it and created an environment in which it can grow. But starting a home based business one week, then trying a different “program” the next, is self-defeating. It’s like digging up the seedling before it has time to root.
