Work From Home Is A Reality – Don’t Give Up!
Have you considered working from home? It really has major advantages:
- No need to buy expensive work clothes. Much better to wear comfortable clothes, even dressing gown and slippers!
- No need to pay for fuel or transport fares to get to work every day.
- No need to scrape the ice off the windscreen in Winter.
- No need to fight your way through the traffic jams every morning.
- No need to pay for child or pet care.
- You can take time off, go shopping, go to the gym without having to clock out or in.
- No boss to watch your every move.
Sounds good so far?
Would you really like to work from home or is it just a dream which may never happen? No…
It isn’t a dream! For example, there are many celebrities or athletes who grew up very poor and managed to turn their lives around. Don’t you think they ever had doubts? Certainly they did but they kept on working toward what they wanted and after much dedication and effort, achieved their goals.
To get an online or any other business started you will need to find a niche. Think about what you enjoy doing? Take a subject or product about which you have some knowledge and/or interests you. You probably will not want to sell books if you hate reading and are bored by books. It really is difficult to sell something you know nothing about or do not care about.
Once you have decided on your niche, if you decide that it is something you can do online, you should get a website. Websites use a language called HTML to display themselves on your browser screen. If you know and can use the language so much the better but if not, most hosting companies provide a website builder program which you websites without the need to know about HTML.
There are web designers who will also design a good website for your business. Once you have you website up and running, start marketing it every day. Use chat rooms, forums and article sites to start building a presence and getting yourself noticed. Make sure the link to your website is always included in the signature file or in your article.
Very important! Don’t give up too soon if things don’t start moving along as fast as you would like. A “want it now” attitude has wasted a lot of efforts simply because I the business was not given enough time to develop. Many times, would be entrepreneurs give up and never give the business a chance to start working. Do not get impatient and give up. If you keep working on your business, in due time it will flourish.
It is usually thought that with brick and mortar businesses, they are supposedly doing well if they break even after the first year or two/ I think that old analogy is outdated for online businesses. If you allow time each day to work on marketing and stay focused on your goals, you will be successful with “working from home”, and maybe sooner than you think. You won’t “get rich quick” but you will be able to earn a substantial income over time depending on how much effort you put in.
Be patient and work hard…you will get results!
