How To Motivate Someone When They Require It The Most

Being in the home based business industry….I’m sure you’ve heard it all before…..”Some Will, Some Won’t, So What, Someone is always Waiting.” This holds true for most people…..and sometimes that one person with incredible potential (yes potentialitis) just requires a small yet positive push every once in a while.

Being a leader in this industry, you may at times find it difficult to motivate. And maybe you only have a team of a few people or perhaps you have a huge downline, either way as a leader there are going to be times when you know a team member is struggling and requires a good dose of motivation. So how do you motivate someone when they really need it?  The answer is in really knowing the person and finding out what matters to them.

Their WHY….or driving force.

As a leader one of the first things you must find out about a new team member when you begin working with them is why they are coming into the business. Do they deserve to become a stay at home mom or dad? Do they deserve to travel more? Are they stuck in a job that they hate? What exactly motivates them and why are they in the business to begin with? Once you know the person you’re dealing with and you really know what makes them tick and what gets them excited it will be much easier to motivate them (or keeping them focused on their goals). Without that prior knowledge you’ll just be grasping for anything that might work. Once you know that your new business partner wants to make money so that he/she can quit their job and work from home you have a huge amount of ammunition and you will know exactly how to motivate them towards success.

Whenever you’re talking to someone about what motivates them, make them be as specific as possible. Don’t just let them tell you that they want more money. Find out what they plan on using that money for. People don’t just want money for the sake of having money. They have an idea in mind about how they want to spend it and how it will change their life. Once you tap into that, you have instant motivation for each one of your team members.

By knowing your team members personally and finding out what really gets them excited you will be able to motivate them more easily and they will make more money which will in turn strengthen the team. So everybody wins.

Now that’s leverage!

Do You Have Someone Holding You Accountable In Your Home Based Business?

One of the few things that I love about having a “real job” is that there are always people there holding you accountable for what you say you’re going to do. If you don’t come to work for a week you’d better believe that there would be consequences or at the very least you’d be getting some angry phone calls from your boss. That is what keeps you on track. It’s what makes you show up to work every day even when you don’t feel like it and you’d rather be doing something else. Accountability is extremely important and it’s something that a lot of home based business owners are really missing.

It can be very isolating working from home. Even if you have other people in the business that you like and are friends with it can be very easy to cover up how much you are actually working. It’s easy to pretend that you’re working your business very hard when really you’re doing very little. That’s why you need to have someone to be accountable to so that you can make sure you’re doing everything you need to do to be really successful in your business.

Your accountability partner can be just about anyone. It can be the person who brought you into the business or just someone you know from your team. It can be your spouse or a close friend pretty much anyone can sign up for the job. The key is finding someone who isn’t afraid to be a little tough on you when you don’t do what you say you’re going to do. Also, you must find someone who you will be honest with. If you haven’t worked in a week you must tell them. Honesty is really the only way that an accountability partner will work for you. So find someone and really open up to them.

Once you have someone who will help to motivate you and keep you accountable you will start to see your business really grow. You won’t be able to just half way work your business and you’ll start seeing more growth because when you are consistently working your business you won’t be able to stop the success from coming. Everyone in a home based business needs an accountability partner who they can be honest with and who can push them on to greatness in their business.
