Our Difference... 

We Believe In The Long Cut

My first exposure to the home business profession was in a dusty run down warehouse in my home town of Blackfoot Idaho.  

I had brought my wife, who was 6 months pregnant at the time, with me, on a Friday night to sit on hard, metal folding chairs, 

...to see if network marketing might be something that could help our family step into a better future. 

The man giving the presentation told us that within the next 90 days, we could be earning $40,000 per month.  

Of course, being young, inexperienced and someone naive, I believed him and got started. 

12 months later, despite my best efforts, I had not earned any money.  

Fortunately, for my family, I didn't quit.  

I stayed persistent, worked hard and got the best education I could find and finally found success working from home. 

The truth is, having success in a home business was not the short cut that first presenter made it out to be.  

It turned out to be a long cut, but it was worth it. 

The idea of building a real income from home is an attractive one for millions of people yet why is it that so many disbelieve and have negative opinions about the home business profession? 

We believe this is, in large part, because so many in our profession, have fallen into the habit of preaching fast money and push button shortcuts to success.  

This is damaging to what we do and damaging to all the people who buy into those claims, only to discover the truth, that success in business requires time, effort, skill and determination.  

We resonate with the words of Gandhi when he said, 

We strive to be examples of trust and credibility so we can build faith in the home business profession.  

Business and success expert Anthony Robbins said "Most people over estimate what they can accomplish in a year, and totally underestimate what they can accomplish in 10."   

Best selling author and award winning marketer Seth Godin teaches, "The long cut really is, the short cut."   

In the HBA we strive to be examples of honesty, transparency, and always endeavoring to under promise and over deliver.  

We believe this is actually helpful to business long term.  

We believe this builds trust with prospects, customers, team members and the general public.  

We believe this helps people to begin their home business journey with the proper expectations and therefore significantly raises their chances of putting in both the time and effort necessary to have success.

This is definitely quite different from what you may have seen elsewhere. 

It's something we're proud to champion.

We Believe In Relationships, Coaching And Mentoring 

This is an extension of our 'long cut' philosophy.  

We believe that occasionally, it's important to slow down so you can speed up over time.  

This involves developing both quality products and relationships. 

If it's worth the time and money to find new customers and team members, then surely it must also be worth the time and money to take care of them, wouldn't you agree? 

Best selling author and leadership expert John Maxwell encourages people to 'walk slowly through the halls.' 

This concept is further illustrated in his book The 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership where he writes, 

"If you make it your goal to reach out to others and build relationships with them, you will derive fulfillment wherever you are.”  -John Maxwell

In short, we believe that people are worth investing in. 

In today's fast paced internet environment, so many are focused on rushing off to find the next sale, it's easy for customers and team members to get lost in the shuffle.

We believe that building a long term business that is both profitable and rewarding requires a different approach. 

If you decide to join us here in The Home Business Academy, we want you to find more than training.  

We want you to find friends, mentors and a family community that will lift and support you all along your freedom journey.  

That makes us different.

When you join us, you get the best of what we've got, period. 

When you join the Academy, you get the best of what we know, period.  

We realize that by holding nothing back from you, and giving you everything we've got the second you join, rather than splitting our knowledge into many different products and up sells, we serve you better, and build trust, which (in the long run) can lead to a lasting relationship, which is what we really want.

This is different from most other products and training systems you'll find online.  

Our goal is to serve you, not distract you or up-sell you

As you become a serious student of the information we teach inside The Academy, you'll learn that one of the pillars of success is concentration.  

The fact that there is an abundance of strategies you can use to successfully build your business from home is both a blessing and a curse. 

If you and your team members decide to learn, master and apply a particular strategy, and then are constantly bombarded with the new strategy of the week, or product launch of the week, this can hurt more than it helps. 

In the HBA, we understand the importance of focus and strive to help you and your team stay focused rather than being a source of your distraction.  

Simple and Advanced Ways For You To Win

When I decided to learn internet lead generation for my home business, it took me 4 months to sponsor my first new customer.  

For some it can take six to 12 months to learn advanced internet lead generation strategies.  

These strategies are highly leveraged and definitely worth learning HOWEVER, we don't believe it's wise for you or your team to be stuck in learning mode for months and months to finally start producing. 

That's why, inside our academy, we emphasize simple, low tech ways to grow your business, while providing the education and support for the advanced skills you can learn over time.  

We believe that this balanced approach can provide a much better environment for you and your team to quickly find results and grow over time.

We hope you'll join us in our mission of inspiring freedom and making the world a better place.
