FlareCopter | Getting On A Different Path | Home Based Biz Ops

home based biz opsHome Based Biz Ops | FlareCopter

It seems Home Based Biz Ops are a dime a dozen and quite frankly many of them suck. There has bee a lot of trial and error for me as a home based business entrepreneur.

As I start to write this I realize it has been quite some time since I last posted on this site and much has changed so allow me to bring you up to date.

First of all when I started with FlareCopter I was located in New York City. I and my partner now reside in Florida. We came here for the winter and it was just so beautiful we decided to stay. In the process of this geographical change much has changed with our business model. While much has changed one thing has remained constant and that is the cash flow provided by FlareCopter.

Cash Flow Is Necessary For Your Home Based Business

Many people start their home based business with a few misconceptions. Maybe the biggest is buying into the lie that is told by almost every marketer on the planet which is “This won’t cost you a thing or much”.

That is a flat out lie. I am not sure where people got the idea and began to believe the idea that there is a free lunch but it is not true. Perhaps it is from years of watching our government do exactly that, putting in no effort and getting rewarded for it, but we don’t own our own printing press and the political side of that is for another day. Suffice it to say that mere mortals actually must put forth effort and their own money to get results.

If you are not willing to engage your time, effort and money in this then don’t even get started or you will lose much of each.

Having said that there are ways to maximize all of the above and FlareCopter is one of those ways. I am not saying it is the only way but it is the way that is working for me. Allow me to explain and give a few examples.

Things You Need To Possess To Start Home Based Biz Ops

The first thing you need is desire and it must be unquenchable. If you think you are going to give half an effort and get a full result then you are kidding yourself and yet I see this all the time.

It comes in the form of believing the mopes selling the systems that tell you all you have to do is push this “Magic Button” and riches will be yours. You must get this idea out of your head. If it were that simple then everyone would work for themselves.

So assuming you have the desire the next thing you need is time. This may be the most crucial element. Given enough time you will succeed no matter how many mistakes you make.Ever heard the saying “Even a blind squirrel finds a few nuts every now and then?” Given time your efforts will pay off. Period!

The problem is that most of us have a shortage of time already. What with working to just do life and pay the bills that takes at least 40 hours not including travel time. So you are left with putting in a 12-15 hour day and sometimes more or finding a way to make more money in less time which is why most of us want to try home based biz ops in the first place.

This is where FlareCopter comes in to the picture for me. It allows me to work 2-3 hours per day, 5 or 6 days a week and replace the income I used to make working 60-70 hours a week. In fact it has not only replaced that income but exceeded it.

While the income is awesome the real reward is the time it frees up for me to pursue my longer term goals. To recap those goals are as follows:

  • Build a list of like minded people to network with
  • Rank my websites to build passive income
  • Partner with like minded people in various business opportunities
  • Do all of this with the goal of decreasing my time spent working as time goes on

Imagine if you could take your 40 hour work week and compress it into a 10-15 hour week and make the same money you were making before? This takes the pressure off you when starting a home based business which brings me to the  next thing you must possess and that is effort.

Realistically how much effort can you bring to home based biz ops if you are already working a 40+ hour work week?

Maybe you can put another 20 hours in a week to build your opportunity but for how long before you explode or your family does? This is the main reason most people fail. It is not for lack of desire. It is because you just do not have the time. Time is not something we are going to get more of so we have to be smarter about how we use our time. We must maximize the amount of time we have. This is where ROI (Return On Investment) comes in.

If I can go sell FlareCopters and work 3 hours a day and make $300.00, and I do regularly, then that leaves me another 5 hours to focus my desire on home based biz ops. But if I am already working an 8 hour day I need to work a 13 hour day to get the same results.

How long can you work 13 hours a day before you explode?

This truly is the reason most people fail. But something that also contributes to the failure is the by-product of this which is fear. See it is a catch 22. Let’s say you cut back your hours at your current J.O.B. (Just Over Broke)…well…you are gonna make less money and that leaves you less money to put at risk. Fear of failing will cause you to not try the things you need to because you are just not sure and you can not afford to be wrong or the bills don’t get paid. This is a very real fear, a valid fear and quite simply reality.

It is actually an advantage when you are starting and have nothing to lose but most of us are not in that position. Most of us do have something to lose and other people counting on us and our ability to provide.

This is the thing most leader’s in the Home Based Business market fail to acknowledge. To them it is some sort of weakness to deal with the reality of having to pay your mortgage. Their attitude is just don’t let anything stop you. For some that may work but for most it is just not an option.

This brings me to the third thing you need and that is quite simply money. This idea that you can start a business for $50.00 and never spend a dime to grow it is absolute rubbish and this idea needs to be abolished. It is not fair to the Home Based Biz Ops reputation and not fair to people trying to start their own home based business. So I will say it out loud and if you want to click off this website to find someone that will blow sunshine up your ass then so be it.

It is going to take an investment of real cash to grow your business!

The Truth About Home Based Biz Ops

Here is an example of dishonest marketing:

Empower Network tells you that for $25.00 you can start your own home based business. Maybe you can to get their up front initial fee paid. What they forget to tell you is that to completely follow their plan will cost you thousands of dollars in upgrades and their whole program is based on paid advertising. Obviously paid advertising is not free.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying this is a bad program. I am saying it does not cost only $25.00 and in fact costs much more if you want to be successful.

So as not to single out Empower Network I will give you another example. There is another company out there advertising a 21-Step System and supposedly you can start for Free. Of course only after you pay the $49.00 application fee. They guarantee that if you do not make a profit with-in 30 days they will pay you $500.00. Sounds pretty good right? Problem is that Step-6 in their 21-Step System calls for you to invest another $1000.00+ for additional material and without it you can not complete the rest of the steps. In my opinion this is one of the most scandalous frauds I have see but apparently none of this is illegal because it happens all the time.

The main point is that it takes money to make money and if you believe otherwise you will fall victim to many of these “Businesses”. Another point is that these marketer’s would not sell their wares in that fashion if they did not know that people believed it. So take off the blind fold and deal with reality. If you want to make money you are going to have to spend some.

FlareCopter has solved the 3 main problems I was faced with Time, Effort and Money. I am not saying it is the only way to go but I am saying it has worked for me. If you want to learn more you can email me at and I will be happy to speak with you.
