Tendencies of a Home Business "Tire Kicker"

First of all: What are "tire kickers?"

To me these are people who aren't serious about taking that leap of faith to become their own boss. Or, they "try" a home business, quit and fail.

Then what happens?

They trash their sponsor and home business they are in because they CAN"T accept the fact they failed! It's very emotionally painful for us humans to accept failure. Yeah, most people do fail in the home business industry. They are the "tire kickers".

Here are some tendencies of a "tire kicker".

1. They Constantly "pitch" their opportunity to EVERYONE! Now sometimes this works. But soon people drop off because they sense the "tire kicker" is only chasing money!

Some Leadership's advice: ALWAYS provide value to people. Make people Chase YOU!! It's so much easier to buy something you already want isn't it? Remember this: Contribution ALWAYS comes before collection.

2. They use words like "I'll TRY" or "Sorry" (they will apologize). First let's discuss why they say "I'll Try".
Saying "I'll Try" gives yourself the option to fail. Have you ever heard this: "Well, I tried but..."

Some leadership advice: Never say "try", just DO IT!! Never give yourself the option to fail. Yes, you may fall down sometimes in business but the only way to ultimately fail is if you QUIT! Remember this: Failures are essential to success and are lessons in disguise.

A tire kicker: Says "sorry". To me apologizing develops a weakness in your character. Sorry- is the easy way out. This will never build your character as a business person. How may times do you think Donald Trump has apologized?

Some Leadership advice: Stand up for what you believe in. Be that strong leader the everyone wants to follow.

3. They are impatient! They need to see immediate results NOW! Life being an entrepreneur is a long journey. "Tire kicker's" have the Lottery mentality and demand instant results.

Some Leadership advice: There are many things to work on when becoming an entrepreneur. Patience is definitely something you need to understand. He that can have Patience, can have what he will.

4. They have NO MINDSET! Many of these people don't even know what this means!! They have no way to know how to rebound from tiny failures that will present themselves in their journey. They believe: When fear presents itself, safety is their GOD.

Some Leadership advice: You got to have an unbreakable mindset to manifest that vision for you to become successful in business. Never let failures conquer you!

I really do believe that current "tire kicker's" can break free from their negative tendencies.

They have to surround themselves with the people they want to become, believe in themselves, set goals with a deadline, promote themselves instead of their products or services, and have that unbreakable mindset to conquer all failures and others who don"t believe in them.
