The ability to work today and get paid tomorrow is a mindset that only entrepreneurs have.

Many people are not successful at direct sales or work at home business models because they do not see immediate income. The entrepreneurial mindset is to plant the seeds today and reap the benefits in the future.

Your business is like a garden.

It takes consistent care, focus and attention to details so that in the long term you are able to harvest the rewards. When you understand that your business will flourish when you consistently put effort into it, then you will have a consistent cash flow.

Consistent Effort Equals Consistent Income

What we do today affects our business the most 3 months down the road.

That is a simple statement and it has a huge impact on your business.

Oftentimes in this industry we hear people say that "August is the worst month of the year!" or "January is a terrible month for sales..." or "I never recruit in December." or other seasonal complaints about their business.

These are self-fulfilling prophecies.  

When you work your business consistently every month of the year then it IS possible to have a consistent year round business.

What usually happens, though, is that we decide something is the case, then "take December off" or maybe even December and January.

Well, then of course if you do not work year round you cannot expect to get paid consistently year round. Every month is an awesome month to join!

Every month can have consistent sales when you focus your efforts on making that happen.

Develop the Entrepreneurial Mindset

The entrepreneurial dream is to create residual income.

The real dream, the one that most people aspire to, is to get paid without any effort. Residual income is getting a good bit of publicity these days in the world of get-rich-quick programs.

It is what we all want! Right?!

Everything good involves effort.

The residual income dream can come true. What you do today affects your business the most 3 months down the road. When you work your business consistently every month, year after year, the benefits of residual income will kick in sooner or later.

Unfortunately many people are not willing to go to any lengths to make that happen.  

The get-rich-quick opportunities do not work for the average citizen because those joining do not have the entrepreneurial mindset. They want to get rich without any effort.

When your work your business consistently year round, the benefits of residual income will pay off.

The entrepreneurial mindset is the ability to work and get paid later. Do it consistently every month and your home business will be more than worth the effort you put in.
