It is essential if you are starting a new, home-based business that you plan every possible thing that could happen. Not only does this help you reach a goal for the future, it also helps if you are trying to get financing for your
home-based business. This important information is what makes up a home business model. And there are four basic components of each stage of building a business. A great business model can only be composed after the components of each stage have been identified.
The components of a home business model include the infrastructure. The core capabilities are capabilities and competencies necessary to execute a company’s business model. The partner network is the business alliances with complement other aspects of the business model and the value configuration, which is the rationale that makes a business mutually beneficial for a business as well as its customers. The offering of a home business model is the value proposition.
These are the products and services a business offers. In short, it is what the customer gets for what the customer pays. A customer can evaluate a company’s value on two broad dimensions with multiple subsets. The vendors marketing and sales efforts offer a customer value proposition. Next come the customers. You need to know who your target customers are, the target audience for your business products and services.
The distribution channel is the means, which a company delivers its goods and services to a customer. This could be through a simple means as the postal service or a major trucking company driving your products across country. Customer relationship is key in a business model.
What do you really want in life? Most people don’t discover what they want in life until it’s time to die – and that’s a shame. Most people spend the best years of their lives watching television or doing things they dislike.
An author described humanity by saying, “Most people die at twenty and are buried at eighty.” Are you one of the living zombies? What do you really want in life? Some people struggle in answering such question. When asked what they want or what their goals in life are, many are unsure. They dillydally in their decision, hardly giving any thought about what they want in life. People without definite goals are letting time pass them by. Are you one of these people? If you are undecided about what you want out of life, do not worry. There are many ways of discovering your purpose in life. To discover what you want in life, try looking deep into your heart. Oftentimes, people are ruled by logic. People live by what they think they should be or by what others like them to be. The discovery process is the perfect time to listen to your heart. What your heart desires comes from the whispers of your authentic self. Your authentic self is the real you.
Listen to your heart to be able to listen to your authentic self. What your heart says usually feels right. What your heart desires is what you usually love to do and this represents your passion. Anything done with passion is like play where the task is accomplished without hesitation. You pour out your very best and feel no pressure or resistance.
You will totally enjoy doing things that are your passion. Setbacks, difficulties, and obstacles will make it more challenging, but should not deter you from pursuing your goals. Naturally, there may be barriers that may prevent you from reaching your goal, but your heart’s desire will find ways to overcome these barriers so that you may ultimately get what you want in life. Remember this: the universe supports people who are pursuing their passion and those who are pursuing their destiny. However, this does not mean that you don’t use your head. People are born with both the mind and heart. Your duty is to live your best life and be in harmony with your mind and heart. The poet Rumi wisely said, “Live completely in the head and you cannot feel the breath and rhythm of life. Live completely in the heart and you may find yourself acting like a love-struck fool with poor judgment and discipline. It’s all a fine balance – the head and heart must forge a lifetime partnership if one wants to live a beautiful life.”
Listen to your instinct. Part of human nature is the mysterious and spontaneous reaction on things. Often times, these are called instincts. Your authentic self communicates with you and guides you via instincts. Instincts are those gentle nudges that urge you to act and follow a certain path. Your role then is to listen attentively. Often times, we listen to what others say and allow them to run our lives. Parents often do this to their children. “We come from a family of doctors, so my son must also be a doctor.” How often do we hear this from parents who have good intentions for their children? Parents unconsciously block the true expression of their child’s real self and calling. Friends and critics will discourage you and point out the impossibility of your dream. Before heeding their advice, evaluate the accomplishments of the critics. Did they achieve theirs dreams? Do they dream big at all?
Remember, it is your destiny that is in line, not theirs. It doesn’t mean, though, that you will not listen to what other people say. Hear them out just the same. But the final decision should be yours. There is only thing to remember: Every person, to live truly and greatly, must define how he wants to live and what his brightest life will look like. Listen to your instincts and follow your heart’s desire. You will never go wrong.

The Business Marketing Plan consists of several components, one which is important is that of :-
The particular route / channel that a company chooses to use to sell their product through will have a bearing on the price as well as by default defining ones end user client profile.
