Millions of people today are having challenges with their personal finances in this bad economy and are turning to home based business as a way to earn some extra money to supplement what they have or to possibly replace a job they do not enjoy.  These types of businesses are plentiful, but the failure rate is high.  Claims are that as many as 98% of those who try will eventually or quickly quit or fail.  There are many avenues to explore in the home based business arena which include: 


Online marketing, affiliate marketing, and direct marketing
Network marketing (MLM or multi-level marketing)
Stock trading and investing
Selling their own products or services

Numerous people are becoming successful in their home businesses with some earning obscene amounts of money.  Millionaires are being made regularly.  They have become the new entrepreneurs who are leaders within their chosen fields.  They were not always successful, but they worked hard and persevered until they developed the skills necessary to become top earners even when the economy has been in disarray.  Most will say that they had many failures before they found success.  They were not willing to settle for what life gave them, but they worked hard and were dedicated to make things better in their lives.  They changed habits and kept trying.  They may have failed, but they were not quitters.  They kept at it until they found money and success.

In order to become truly successful in anything like the top earners in any field, it is necessary to develop certain leadership skills such as:

Set goals and stay on course
Be a creator of ideas and follow through on them
Have purpose and meaning in all your activities
Act like a leader and do the things a leader does
Keep a positive mental attitude and don’t give up
Surround yourself with successful people

There is an old saying that there are three kinds of people in this world:  (1) those who make things happen, (2) those who watch things happen, and (3) those who wonder what happened.  Of course, true leaders need to be in the first category.  They are the movers and shakers of the world.  They are the people who bring about change and make things better.  They are the ones who care enough to work hard to make the world a better place in which to live.  They care about the generations who will follow instead of having a selfish attitude of what is in it for them.  They are willing to give back and help others.
