Thought about building a home based business??

Here are some ideas on where to start

Have you ever thought about building a home based business, but didn’t know where to start? I know what it feels like to start a project, and get a mental block, and not be able to finish. I also know how it feels like to spend a lot of time working on an idea, only to change your entire outlook on the subject and have to start over.

Health is one of those subjects for me. I’ve been an affiliate marketer for a long time, and I used to promote many different products over the years in the Health industry. I can recall selling fat burning pills, protein shakes, blood cleaners and many more. Over the years I lost faith in some of the products that I was selling, because I learned something new about those topics, that changed my way of thinking. I won’t bad mouth any products or companies, but I’ll give you some examples of what I mean.

Learning that better health comes from eliminating processed foods, staying hydrated, incorporating a cleaner diet with fruits, vegetables and excersizing. I learned that keeping your filters clean (kidneys, spleen and lymphatic system) can fend off disease. You don’t need any pills to burn fat at that point, or any special protein that you can’t already get from organic food. You just need to eat healthy and keep you blood circulating, while you sweat out the toxins.

It does makes sense to promote a product if you really like it, but It’s important to keep it real with yourself. I lost interest in selling a pill to burn fat, because I learned that the key was to focus on excersize and eating clean.

I love excersize programs though, because it involves having a healthy lifestyle. Having a training program that you love, or a physically activity as a hobby are lifestyles. I love training Jiu Jitsu, rock climbing, snowboarding, swimming, trail running and other physically active sports for that reason. So I’m open to selling and promoting those type of training programs, because a healthy lifestyle makes sense to me.
