Confused about why your home business is failing? Check out these 5 common reasons home businesses fail.

No one starts building their home business with the philosophy that it will fail. Most people begin their new businesses full of excitement and vigor. Ready to take the world by storm, with hopes of becoming successful early on. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen for most entrepreneurs. While excitement toward their home business is a wonderful thing, every home business owner needs a good dose of realism and to embrace the concept of hard work and strategy.

Any business is only worth the time and hard work put into building it up. It won’t become a success over night. If you are a home business owner and you want to ensure your success, you first need to come face to face with the most common reasons that business may fail. Believe it or not many of those reasons have to do with not treating your business like a REAL job. Your home business, if you are working it to earn an income, is a real business. Let’s break this down a little and examine 5 reasons your home business will fail if you don’t take it seriously.

Allowing Yourself to Simply Not Work Because You are the Boss

When you are your own boss, it can be easy to decide to let yourself take a few hours, or an entire day off from work. I mean who is going to say anything to you for skipping work a little here and there? You might think that missing a little work time won’t effect your business, but you may be wrong. We all know that we need a little time off from time to time; however, we have to be choosey in when we take that time off—and to what length we can afford to be missing in action. Missing a day of work every now and then won’t destroy your business. It is when those days become frequent and we become accustomed to taking a lot of time off. While being your own boss can be freeing, you must ensure that that freedom doesn’t turn into recklessness with your home business.

Not Setting Regular Work Hours for Your Home Business

I can’t think of any (outside of the home) business that lets you come in and work whenever you want—without having regular business hours. So, why do you think you can do this with your business? Building a home business takes hard work. You are going to have to put the time in before you see any real results; that won’t happen if you are working 3 hours today, 1 hour tomorrow and 8 hours the next day. Set regular business hours and stay consistent. It doesn’t mean that you can’t change your work time if you have an appointment or an emergency. It just means that you are dedicated to running your business and making it a success.

Wasting Time with Busy Work or Insignificant Tasks

Do you obsess over checking your email? Do you spend far too much time on Facebook? Are you more of a blog reader than a blog post writer? While all of these things need to be done during the course of your business day, it is very possible to spend too much time on each task. You want to ensure that you are getting to the real work at hand and not just spending all of your time with busy work. Don’t check your email every hour. Set aside a specified time, maybe twice a day, to check your business email. Plan your Facebook posts ahead of time, so you can complete your posting and move on to other productive tasks.

Let Yourself Become Easily Distracted

When your office is also your home, distractions are all around you. Not only can you become distracted by things you find online, but also by things in your home. Television is a big distraction for many home business owners. Maybe housework and laundry are a big distraction for you. Whatever your main distractions may be, you need to set aside a time for these things and refuse to allow any distractions to cut into your work time.

Not Properly Tracking All of Your Work Activities

If you are running a home business and you aren’t organized, you need to pick up some organizational skills. It is important to know exactly what activities and tasks need to be completed each day and work through each of those items in a timely manner. If your home business requires you to meet specific deadlines, you need a way of tracking each item to ensure it is completed on time. Try keeping a list of all of the tasks you have at hand and check each one off as you finish that task. If you start letting tasks fall between the cracks, your business may not last long.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today’s post. If you would like to learn more about Motor Club of America, please leave a comment or send an email to info@MCAworkfromhome.com.

Have a blessed day!

Heard a lot about MCA Motor Club but just aren’t sure if you could make money marketing their benefits package? Do you wonder what the MCA work from home associates package would offer you? Well, wonder no more.

There are two reasons individuals decide to join MCA; they either want to become an MCA member, taking advantage of the great MCA Motor Club benefits, or they want to earn an income with MCA—and enjoy the benefits as well. In this article, I am going to break down all of the benefits offered to MCA members and MCA associates. Let’s get started!

MCA Motor Club Benefits Package

The MCA plan offers ERS or Emergency Roadside Service to individuals needing help when stranded with a vehicle problem. Whether you have ran out of gas, had a flat tire, or experienced a dead battery, MCA will dispatch someone to help you with your issue.

If your vehicle needs repair, you will be provided with towing services, so that you can tow your vehicle in for repairs. The plan allows your vehicle to be towed up to 100-hundred miles from the point where the vehicle became inoperable.

The MCA Motor Club plan is not only for vehicles, but also covers boats, motorcycles, RVs, livestock trailers or dually trucks. The benefits plan is offered for these vehicles at no additional charge to you—the member. Locked out of your vehicle? Never fear! You can contact MCA and they will provide information regarding a locksmith to help you out of your situation.

As a member of the MCA motor club plan you will also receive ER (Emergency Room) benefits in case you are injured. The protection plan covers items such as casts, x-rays, lab work and nursing and/or physician care. If you are hospitalized, you will receive one hundred fifty ($150) per day as a daily hospital benefit. This amount is paid directly to you and is honored up to $54,750.00. Being hospitalized because of a vehicle accident is something most of us hope will never happen and don’t often think about—until it happens. If you find yourself in an accident and needing hospital care, the MCA Motor Club protection plan is there to help you cover your expenses while you recover from the accident. The protection plan also offers an accidental death coverage benefit and an accidental death benefit plan.

Again, these benefits are paid directly to you. If your regular vehicle insurance policy covers all of your physician and hospital expenses, you still receive the money from the MCA Motor Club benefits plan. There are also other benefits, such as hotel discounts, that you will enjoy when you enroll as a member.

You can check out all of the great benefits offered by MCA Motor Club by reviewing the MCA Presentation Book.

 

MCA Motor Club Associates Package

If you are considering joining the MCA Motor Club and becoming an MCA work from home representative, you will be glad to know that you will enjoy all of the above benefits—just like any member of MCA. However, you will also have the ability to earn an income with your new MCA business.

MCA associates receive $80 for every qualified referral they send to the company. Motor Club of America does not pay hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to the media for advertising; instead, MCA pays its associates to market the business. Every time you sign up an individual to become either an MCA member or an MCA associate, you receive $80.00 for that referral. There are not many companies out there that pay their associates such a high referral fee.

As an MCA associate you also receive free training, a free company website and a free back office website full of materials and information to help you with your new business. The company also provides its associates with conference calls and webinars to help those who are new to the business or new to marketing in general.

The money you earn as an MCA associate is direct deposited weekly into your checking account—allowing you the added benefit of not waiting on a check to arrive in the mail.

My Personal MCA Work From Home Experience

The MCA Motor Club has been such a blessing to me and my family. I have been able to help my husband provide for our family with the added income, while continuing to be at home for our five children. In 2013, I was able to bring in over $52,000. with MCA. I am thankful to God above for allowing me to find this wonderful company.

I have also used the membership benefits several times. Knowing that I have piece of mind when I am on the road with my children—and something should happen—is a wonderful feeling.

If you are skeptical, know that I was too. I researched the company many times, scrutinizing every level, until I was comfortable with MCA. If you have any questions, I would love to provide you with answers and show you how you can start your own MCA work from home business.

No matter where you are with your business—whether it is growing rapidly, sitting stagnant or just getting started—the New Year is a great time to put new life into your work at home business. The New Year brings a chance to start over, to redo things differently. It also give us a chance to really start fresh. If you are looking to revive your work at home business, follow these tips to start your New Year out with a bang.

Set Goals

Many of you are most likely tired of hearing how you need to set goals for your business. Isn’t wanting to be successful and earning money enough? No it isn’t! If you are serious about your business, you need to get serious about setting goals. In order to achieve a goal you need to actually be working toward it—and you can’t do that by simply thinking about the goal from time to time.

Set weekly, monthly, bi-yearly and yearly goals. Determine exactly what you want to accomplish in the next year and where you want to be at that time. Once you have done this, you will want to determine what weekly and monthly goals you need to set that will get you to your yearly goal. Breaking down your goals sets a clear path to your ultimate destination.

Become Organized

If you aren’t already an organizational freak, become one. Okay, maybe you don’t have to go that far; however, it will help you improve the daily workings of your business to become better organized. Maybe you need to keep better track of your tax paperwork than you did last year. Perhaps you aren’t keeping up with client files. Find the area you are weakest in and work on becoming more organized in that department.

Stop Kidding Yourself Regarding Your Weaknesses

Whether you are working at home or outside of the home, all of us have tasks we have to complete that we don’t like or just aren’t good at. Don’t keep attempting to complete those important tasks—without proper instruction or help. If there is an activity that you need help with consider hiring someone who is competent and skilled in that area. If you can’t afford to hire help at this point in your career, think about taking a class to help improve your abilities in that part of your business. This is a New Year, time to take control of your work at home business.

Find Some “Me” Time

I don’t know how many times this was said to me before it finally sunk in. I was working day and night. I would wake up in the wee hours of the morning, before the children got up, and I would stay up much later than I should have in order to complete work that just couldn’t wait. The truth is that most of the work could have waited, I was just being too fastidious. Don’t forget the YOU in YOUr work at home business. It is important to take some time for yourself. Go out and have lunch with a friend, watch a movie with your family or just sit and read a book. Also, don’t forget to get enough sleep. You are no good to anyone if you aren’t rested and ready to run your work at home business the right way.

ID 100128912 Why I Started the MCA Work at Home Website

A lot of people ask me what I do to advertise my MCA business, and while I do have other advertising outlets, my MCA work at home website is my number one means of advertisement. I started my blog because I wanted to get the word out about my business and how it could help people make an income while at home. Along the way, I decided that I would share other types of information with those looking to earn an at home income. Information such as Why You Aren’t Making Money Online and Tips for the Work at Home Mom or Dad.

While I started the MCA Work at Home blog with the initial thought of increasing my MCA income, I quickly saw the potential to help other people. When I began working at home, years ago, I knew nothing about how to make money online or how to sift through the many opportunities on the Internet. I had to learn. I read all that I could, I made friends with individuals who were trying to make money online as well and I tried lots of different business formats. It took time to find things that really worked—but I have.

I hope that all of you, my viewers, find my MCA work at home blog useful—not only for MCA, but also with all of your work at home challenges. I hope to bring you more useful information in the future—information that will help you learn how to better run your work at home business and maybe even help you find other ways of earning money online—like my MCA work at home website has done for me.

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about this topic; however, I think it needs to be explored again. I want everyone who is complementing working from home to understand that work from home jobs take real work. If you read my blog, or peruse my website at all, you know that I am an MCA Associate. While the term “real work” definitely apples to MCA, it also applies to any other work from home jobs out there. 

Every now and then, increasingly as of late, I have people inquire about MCA and ask me if they will receive a check even if they don’t do anything. Or if they will get paid for simply posting the adds and not signing anyone up for the program. I also have a friend who is a freelance writer. She once had someone tell her that they could make far more than her and produce thousands of articles a week. This person planned on copying and pasting articles other people had worked hard at writing and then planned on collecting the money. NEWSFLASH! That practice is blatant plagiarism and is illegal—and just plain rude and ignorant! Needless to say, this person was not successful with his plan. Why did he want to do this? He wanted to make what she was making—and more—without having to put forth the work to do so! 

Any job, whether it be a work from home job or a job you are working outside of the home takes work. If you find something that doesn’t please let me know! 

It is true that I enjoy a lot of freedom because I work from home. I get to spend extra time with my family and I can pick up and leave my home to run errands, or just to have a cup of coffee with a friend, almost any time I want—without having to ask a boss if I can—I am my own boss. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t spend a lot of time working on MCA and the other projects I have going. Work is just that…it is work. If you want to be successful at anything, you have to put forth the effort. I would much rather be working from home, where I can be here for my kids when they aren’t in school, than I would working a 9 to 5 job. 

So for all those people who wonder if MCA takes actual work. Yes, Yes it does. And so does any other work from home job!

Over the past few months, I have talked to you about the MCA work from home opportunity. We have discussed topics such as “What is MCA?” and “How to make MCA money”. While I have also talked about other work at home topics, I really wanted to expand the topics that I talk about and allow my readers to have another outlet where they can ask questions and find quality information.

In the next couple of weeks, I will be rolling out a new website with the help of my friend Stephanie Stevens. This website will provide valuable information for those who are wanting to start a work from home career and offer suggestions on how to go about making money from home. If you are working from home now or are seriously considering a work at home job or career, this website will be for you.

I would like to know how many of you will be interested in this new website? Would you be interested in information that can help you earn more while working from home? Please leave a comment and let me know if you think this would be a valuable service.

Keep an eye out here, at the MCA Work from Home blog, for more information about this exciting new website!

In today’s economy, there are many reasons for individuals to look for work for stay at home moms. Maybe you would like to simply spend more time with your children, or maybe you can’t afford daycare for your young children at home. Other individuals may want to homeschool their children, but can’t afford to not continue bringing in an income. No matter what reason you have for wanting to become a stay at home mom, or dad, I can tell you that it is a definite possibility.

While there is work for stay at home moms out there to be found, it is important that you don’t jump into the first business venture that you find. Not every work from home opportunity is a perfect fit for every individual. Don’t be afraid to pick apart every opportunity you find, to ensure that there are no hidden costs or clauses that will work against you.

Before I found my work for stay at home moms opportunity, which is Motor Club of America, I had tried several other opportunities. Some of those opportunities were genuine work at home businesses, while others turned out to be more scam than anything else. My point is don’t give up on finding your perfect work for stay at home moms opportunity, just ensure that you play close attention to the fine print when choosing which business you will promote.
