        1.     Welcome and Update from Elena

        Hello again and a warm welcome to all the new subscribers
        who have joined us since the last issue.

        No, you're not imagining things ... it IS Friday, February 1
        and this issue IS dated February 4.  I'm traveling this
        weekend and Monday/Tuesday with my parents who are
        visiting from Australia so this issue is being sent early.

        The first order of business this issue is to correct a serious
        omission from last week's list of article submission resources
        in the feature article, "Articles ... The Best Form of Free
        Advertising" (Advertising with Articles). 
        As Wild Bill Montgomery pointed out to me, I had
        inadvertently omitted one of the best article submission sites
        there are - the InfoZone Article Archives at
        .  Mea culpa!  Apologies Bill! 
        Check it out.

        Since I have my parents with me and time is very short, I
        hope you will forgive me if I run an article I wrote a couple
        of years ago as this week's feature article.  "If I Knew Then
        What I Know Now ... 15 Rules For Success In Your Home
        Business" is, two long years down the track, just as relevant
        to those of us running online businesses in 2017 as it was
        "way back when" in 2017.

        As always, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this
        week's issue.

        Remember, AHBBO is for YOU!  If you have comments or
        suggestions for topics you would like to see addressed, or
        would just like to share your experiences with other
        subscribers, I want to hear from you.  Please send
        comments, questions and stories to Contact By Email .


        Q. Computer and net savvy?
        A. Yes, or you would not be reading this.

        Q. Serious about working from home?
        A. Yes, that's why you have come to AHBBO.

        2.     Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Wire Jewelry

        This idea is a little different from the normal 'report' format
        you're used to seeing in this segment. For this idea, I'm just
        going to refer you to a website that does WAY much more
        justice to this business idea than I could possibly do.

        The site is Preston Reuther's Wire-Sculpture.com
        (). Here you will find
        everything you could possibly need or want to know about
        starting and running a home-based wire jewelry business.

        Preston is a master wire sculptor and teaches others his skills
        via a series of instructional videos. As Preston says, "you can
        learn to make gemstone and gold wire jewelry that sells
        anywhere. If you can bend a paper clip, I can train you to
        make $40,000 your first year in your home-based jewelry
        business. My easy to learn method will teach you all the tricks
        of the trade. You can start your home business with a few
        hand tools right from your kitchen table!"

        The site contains many other resources for wire jewelry home
        business owners and Preston also publishes a weekly newsletter
        to keep you in the know.


        There are many more ideas like this at the AHBBO Home Business
        Ideas page at free home based business ideas with more being
        added regularly.



        3.     Feature Article:  If I Knew Then What I Know Now ...
           15 Rules For Success In Your Home Business

        © 2017 Elena Fawkner

        Someone sent me an email the other day. Supposedly General
        Colin Powell's Rules for Success. Now, I don't know whether
        they really are or not, but as I read them, I thought they really
        should be called "15 Rules For Success In Your Home Business".
        So, here they are:

        Rule 1 - It ain't as bad as you think, it will look better in the

        If there's one experience universal to ALL home-based business
        owners, particularly those running a business on the Internet,
        it's the occasional (and sometimes frequent) feeling that you're
        just spinning your wheels, and not getting anywhere. The number
        of people who give up on their businesses just as they approach
        the brink of success is staggering. So hang in there and remind
        yourself, when things look bleak, that tomorrow is another day,
        things really aren't as bad as they seem and things really WILL
        look better in the morning.

        Rule 2 - Get mad, then get over it

        OK, I concede this is more general advice than home business
        advice but it applies in your home business just as it does
        anywhere else. Resentment and unexpressed anger really don't
        hurt anyone but the person feeling resentful and angry. Have
        you ever noticed how completely unproductive you are when
        burdened by resentment and anger? So feel it, express it
        (constructively) and then move on. As the man said, "get over

        Rule 3 - Avoid having your ego so close to your position that
        when your position falls your ego goes with it

        Over the course of my career I have, from time to time, met
        people whose identity and sense of self-worth is so enmeshed
        in what they do for a living that they literally don't have an
        identity outside of their work. Because they rely on an external
        source for their self-esteem and confidence, they find it
        necessary to continually and relentlessly bolster their personal
        positions, usually at the expense of others, often resorting to
        political maneuvring in the workplace to maintain and improve
        their supposed 'status'.

        These people are the 'empire builders' you sometimes find in
        organizations. They jealously guard their power base all the
        while gathering unto themselves more and more responsibility,
        beyond the point of being able to do everything they take on.

        Because their identity and sense of self-worth depends upon
        their position within their organization, what happens when
        their position disappears, such as in a corporate downsizing?
        It freefalls.

        Don't let this happen to you. Remember that you are something
        separate and distinct from your business. Sure, you can be
        proud and pleased with your accomplishments but don't define
        yourself through them. Your self-worth is something that
        comes from inside your human self, not your business.

        Ironically, keeping a professional detachment is more likely to
        secure the ultimate success of your business. Detachment
        brings perspective, objectivity and clarity, which helps you
        make better quality decisions.

        Rule 4 - It can be done

        Don't allow self-imposed limitations to restrict what you can
        and will do. You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
        Well, of course, it must be something that is within your
        power - you can't just set your mind on growing a third arm,
        for example.   But for anything that is within human power
        and capability, the saying "where there's a will is a way" is
        so true.

        Get into the discipline of planning your life and where you
        want it to go. By setting goals and planning the steps that
        will help you reach them, you can achieve literally anything
        your heart desires.

        Rule 5 - Be careful what you choose, you may get it

        Following on from this, it should go without saying that what
        you set for your goals is something you truly want because
        if you do practice the discipline of goal setting you will surely
        get it.

        Rule 6 - Don't let adverse facts stand in the way of a good

        Keep your eye on the prize and don't be distracted by what's
        happening on the sidelines. Sure, you may not have entered
        the marathon had you known there were going to be 1,000
        other runners but does that mean entering the marathon was
        a bad idea? No.

        Make your decisions based on quality information and what's in
        the best interests of your business. If someone else comes
        along who represents competition for your business, don't be
        put off your game. Just run your own race. There's ALWAYS a
        way to distinguish yourself from your competition.

        Rule 7 - You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't
        let someone else make yours

        IGNORE your mother when she tells you you're crazy for
        chucking in your nice SAFE secure little job to start your own
        business. Follow your dream, no-one else's.

        Rule 8 - Check small things

        Like the fine print in contracts. Like the URL in that sales letter
        you've just put the finishing touches on. Like your spelling and
        punctuation. In other words, pay attention to detail.

        Rule 9 - Share credit

        You've heard the saying, "no man is an island". No woman is
        either. Remember and acknowledge the people who have helped
        and continue to help you get where you want to go.
        Acknowledge the achievements of others.

        Rule 10 - Remain calm, be careful

        Frenzy and recklessness are hardly the prescription for long-term
        success in your business. In the face of unexpected challenges,
        unexplained downturns in business or failure to achieve the results
        expected, recognize that these are just part of the thrust and
        parry of business life and use a calm, methodical approach to the

        Don't just react blindly or chuck away all your hard work and try
        something completely different unless a thorough, calm and
        careful investigation convinces you that you are completely
        off-beam. Calmly analyze your situation and use your intelligence
        to correct the situation.

        Sometimes a one degree turn of the wheel is all that is required
        to get back on course, not a completely new rudder.

        Rule 11 - Have a vision, be demanding

        This rule goes hand in hand with rules 4 and 5. In order to set
        goals and plan ways to achieve them you must first set your vision.
        Think big, be brave. There is nothing you can't achieve so make
        sure your efforts are going to be for something truly worthwhile.

        Rule 12 - Don't take counsel of your fears or naysayers

        All of us have moments of self-doubt or even fear when
        embarking on a journey to an unknown destination. If what
        you have planned for yourself brings with it feelings of anxiety,
        nervousness, even fear, pay attention to them but don't take
        their counsel.

        They are symptoms of grand thinking, of stretching beyond
        the boundaries of your comfort zone. As the book says, feel
        the fear and do it anyway.

        Rule 13 - Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier

        This rule is closely related to rule 1. Believe that things will
        work out, that they will look better in the morning, that
        everything's going to be OK. Repeat the words to yourself as a
        mantra if you must but instill a spirit of indomitable optimism in
        your outlook and you will attract success into your life.

        Rule 14 - Sometimes being responsible means pissing people off

        You can't please all of the people all of the time so don't waste
        your time or energy even trying. You have a responsibility to
        the ultimate success of your business and to your own personal
        success. If that means you occasionally have to say no to
        people to stay true to your objectives, do it. If it means you
        have to alienate some people because they don't personally
        agree with what you are doing, that's their problem.

        In other words, stay focused on your plan. If others don't like
        it or agree with it, too bad.

        Rule 15 - You never know what you can get away with unless
        you try

        If you don't ask you don't get. And if you don't take you don't
        get. Leave nothing on the table. If an opportunity comes along,
        take it. It may not come again. And remember, in chaos there
        is opportunity. While everyone else is running around like chooks
        with their heads cut off, you just bring up the rear and clean up
        on all the opportunities that are just lying there for the taking
        among the chicken scratch.

        Hindsight truly is 20/20, no doubt about it. Perhaps, like me,
        you're thinking that if you'd known then what you know now,
        you would have gone a lot further a lot faster. But as with any
        form of progress, it's the journey, not the destination, that
        provides the education and creates the experience and, through
        it, wisdom. And that's something no book can teach you and
        money can't buy.

          -- Norman Vincent Peale

        failure, loyalty, and persistence."
