The lure of an almost unlimited income potential lead many people into the decision of owning a home based business. Almost without exception, the successful home based business owner understands the importance of investing in their most important resource. What is the most important resource? It is them.

Unfortunately, many home based business entrepreneurs fail to recognize that they are the most important resource of their business. A failure to invest in this most critical resource almost certainly dooms their business to failure.

Invest in yourself and learn your business. Operating any business takes a certain amount of knowledge. Generally, this knowledge can be acquired by an investment in years of experience or an investment in education. A unique attribute of a home based business is that years of experience are unnecessary. Likewise, a long period of education is not required. A home based business owner can invest their time in studying what other successful entrepreneurs have done and copy it.

Invest in personal development time each day. It is amazing how many people neglect to spend time in personal development. There are so many good books available for improving yourself. The internet is packed with free articles. Developing the correct attitude can help unlock a potential beyond your wildest expectations. The correct attitude can actually aid in attracting the kind of people into your business with which you want to associate.

Invest in free time for thinking and planning. Running any business can be grueling and a home based business is no exception. To be successful, a business has to be worked. By investing in free time, the home based business owner creates time to recharge their batteries. Many businesses fail because the owner is so busy operating the business they have no time to plan their next step. Making sound business decisions requires quiet time to think and to plan.
