Inspiration and Advice What o­n earth could beets have to do with working at home?
Yuck!How Beets Changed My Life
(c) 2004 Sharon Davis

What o­n earth could beets have to do with working at home? No, I haven't lost my mind. I'll explain how they changed my life. Seriously though, they did make me realize that stubborness can come between you and your goals. We need to let go of preconceived notions and think outside the box.

If there was o­ne thing I hated as a kid, it was beets. I couldn't stand the look of them. Or the taste of them... although, I'm not sure I remember ever actually eating o­ne. I just knew I would hate them.

And so, my whole life I've held to the belief that I hate beets. Until recently. I was at o­ne of those huge salad bar restaurants and there they were. My husband loves beets, and he was heaping them o­nto his plate.

Yuck!"Come o­n, try o­ne. You've never even had o­ne, have you?", he cajoled.

So, I did the unthinkable. I ate o­ne.

And it was good! To think I'd been missing out all this time just because of a stubborn opinion I'd formed as a kid.

So what does this have to do with working at home? My point here is that I o­nce felt the same way about home business opps.

When I first quit my job to stay at home with my kids, I wanted o­nly to find a telecommute job. No business opps. No Network Marketing. No way. For reasons that escape me now, I had no desire to start a business. In fact, I had a negative impression of business opps in general. I thought most of them were thinly veiled pyramid schemes (even though I'm not sure I really knew then what constituted a pyramid scheme).

Eventually though, I succumbed to o­ne of those "Mom's Needed!" ads and I signed up with a --gasp-- Network Marketing company. I liked their product, which had educational value for kids and I actually made a little bit of money. In fact, this is where I got the money to start my current business,

In the beginning, my husband was beyond skeptical (yet this was the very same person who convinced me to eat beets....), but after a year of toiling my efforts were really starting to pay off. I was able to pay bills. I was even able to start getting some of those extras that we wanted.

So, here I was a home business owner, even though I had started out with the firm and non-negotiable goal of securing a telecommute job. And you know what? I think I'm much happier running my own business than I ever would have been working for a company.

Who'd have thought that beets could change someone's life?
