Working My Home Based Business AND Enjoying the Great Outdoors

It's a beautiful day; the sun is shining in the clear blue sky, the birds are chirping, the kids are playing (nicely for a change!), and there is a light breeze to set the mood to a very pretty spring day!  I am thoroughly enjoying this weather and am able to do so right in my own backyard.  Now I know what's it's like to "work" from home while still enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors!  I finally purchased a laptop!!!  Before, I would be working from my home "office" (family room desk w/desk top computer!) in our finished downstairs (basement/dungeon) and not have the slightest inkling what was going on in the great outdoors, and more importantly, what mischief my 3 boys would be up to!  I love sitting in my backyard at my patio set with a delicious iced tea watching my kids play AND having the ability to work my home based business!  I am finally enjoying one of the MANY perks of working at home!

Wanting to Gain Self Confidence

I've been working from home for the past 8 (eight) months.  I enjoy working from home and having the flexibility to make my own hours and spend quality time with my children.  I enroll and train marketing executives for a registered pharmaceutical company, which has been inducted into the Inc 500 Hall of Fame. The company promotes health and wellness through its products. Our mission is to establish customer accounts and help people enhance the quality of their lives both personally and financially.  There is nothing better than helping someone reach their goals!  However, one of the most difficult tasks, for me, is approaching my warm market.  I know I have a information about something that could improve the quality of someones life, but my concern is the approach.  How should I approach someone, who is a friend or family member, without making them feel that it's something they "have" to do, just because I do?  I struggle with this daily.  I want so badly to help people, yet, I'm afraid to approach them with something that could, quite possibly, change their lives dramatically!
