A Profitable home based business is quite similar to a traditional business, more so I think, than many realize. In the traditional business world certain laws apply that make profitablility occur. A profitable home based business is no different.

Many ideas can be aquired through speaking to many business owners who have knowledge, first hand. Some call it the school of hard knocks I like to refer to it as the school of knowledge.

There is a gap between information and knowledge and business owners who enjoy success in any area have traversed that gap. When you experience something you feel it, your there, and when you come away you have a knowing, or knowledge.

You might notice after going through an experience in business or even an issue in the home with family, that you had information about how to handle the issue. However often times we are unable to utilize the information until we convert it to knowledge.

Experience can serve as kind of refinery for information. We put some information or intuition into the refinery of experience and out comes knowledge. This knowledge then becomes power we can use to apply and achieve objectives that we were previously under powered to achieve.

How does operating a profitable home based business fit in to this equation you might ask. The same way operating a traditional business fits into the equation. Its about that gap we spoke of and the expense of getting over that gap.

When business owners or individuals for that matter convert infomation into knowledge through the refinery of experience they create bridges that span those gaps that we will encounter as entrepreneurs. Being profitable is much easier to achieve by taking the bridges. By easier I mean cheaper, faster, less stress, more joy, and more health.

Taking the bridge's requires the entrepreneur to stay connected to the bridge bearer's, or other entrepreneurs. This can be achieved through networking, coaching, and reading books.

When an entrepreneur finds that networking is difficult in his or her particular industry, or they just don't like to network its important to know there are other options. One on One coaching is a choice for many business owners for privacy reasons or pesonality preferences. An Objective perspective will save or create money. That money is profit.

A Profitable home based business will be much more easily achieved by taking the bridges. The profit is in fact on the bridge. This becomes increasingly true as business innovates faster everyday.

We all have all heard the old adage a wise person learns from someone elses mistakes while a smart man learns from his own mistake. I will go one step further and say, a profitable person, learns from someone else's mistakes.
