Online Home Based Business - Build it Stitch by Stitch, Block by Block

It makes no difference what type of business you’re in, it can be done on the Internet. Internet Marketing is the new Home Based Business.
You should understand that making money online isn’t easy at first. It takes work and there is a huge learning curve. It may even take you out of your comfort zone.
You might think it is something you could never do or want to do, but let me tell you, you will be pleasantly surprised.
I would like to relate a little story to you that would help you see this. Everyone who knows me knows that I love sewing. As a matter of fact, I am passionate about it. And when sewing shows were on TV, I recorded them all on VHS tapes and categorized them. I am the brunt of many jokes.
But as much as I love sewing, I still couldn’t see what the rave was for Quilting?
I mean, who in their right mind would take a fabric the size of a bedspread, cut it up into little pieces and sew it back together?
I’ll tell you, not me, that's for sure! I have better things to do, and I thought that if I needed a quilt, I’ll just go buy one thank you!
Then one day a new fabric store opened up in our town, and I called the shop to see what they had. When she told me that it was a quilting store and they only had cotton, I groaned!
Then in order to cover it up, I pretended to be interested. I started asking her questions and she proudly told me about their quilting classes.
Thankfully I was not free on the night they were offered and I dodged that bullet. Well, wouldn’t you know it, she called back the following week telling me she arranged for a class on the day that I said I was free.
My heart sank.
Here I was going to something that I never wanted to do in the first place. But when I went there, she had this adorable little shed converted into a fabric shop. It was all cozy and warm on this winter day – she might have even had a wood stove going. Coffee was on, music was playing, and the other women did not show up.
So here I was every week all by myself surrounded by fabric. I had two peaceful hours with no housework or distractions – just music, coffee, me and my sewing machine. It was heaven!
That’s how I got into quilting.
And it’s the same with an Internet Home Business. I thought I would hate it – but it introduced to me many new things – I love it!
For one, I love working from home, I love the income, and I am meeting new people from all over the world.
I find I am surrounded by an array of fabric – which are these new friends. There is a saying that “getting there is half the fun,” and it really is.
Like quilting – work on it piece by piece so you don’t get overwhelmed. Before you know it, you will have a beautiful quilt – a successful business online that you love!
