Working-From-Home... A Guide Where To Start
Share this Article:

Working from home is easier said than done, I know from personal experience. How about you? Do you want the freedom of running your own business from home? Are you wondering how to bridge the profitably gap?  Do you need money to pay the bills until it gets profitable? This conundrum stops many entrepreneur-wannabes in their tracks.

The 'Shark Tank' model says quit your 9-to-5 and go for it. But, working from home feeding your spouse and kids and keeping a roof over their head shouts, “No way!” Relax, there’s a middle ground that the majority of new business owners follow.

Most people have responsibilities and bills that keeps them from attempting to work from home. Rather than jumping off the startup cliff, many choose to do it step by step, beginning with a sideline while working at their 9-to-5 job.

Working From Home / The Benefits of Waiting.

Don’t think you’re a wimp for not marching into your boss’ office, shouting “I quit!” A host of benefits come with a steady paycheck while getting your business ducks in a row.  This can be one of the first step to start working from home though for sure.

With regular money coming in, you have: peace of mind, which makes it easier to focus on the details of your start-up, money to pay regular bills, a ready source of funds to invest in your new business and a better financial profile if you want to get a loan or increase your credit line.

Working From Home / Where To Start.

Surprisingly, the most important step of all happens when you decide you begin working from home. With patience and consistency, you can take that commitment and turn it into a the reality of entrepreneurship. Begin with a sideline and grow into a a company that produces a full-time income.

Set realistic goals, make a timeline and get going. These will keep you on track and let you see steady progress. The key word is realistic. Going from sidelines to full-time income in six months is not realistic. Growing your business by 5% a month is.

Working From Home / How To Make the Most of Your Time.

Working full time, having a family and growing a sideline takes scheduling. Get a calendar and schedule in regular time for your new business. Even 15 minutes a day, done consistently, will move you forward. Of course, an hour a day will get you there faster, but that’s not always realistic.

That’s the advantage of breaking down your big goals into small chunks, then breaking those into tiny tasks. On days where everything falls apart, do just one tiny task. You’ll feel encouraged, and it will help you make headway.

Working From Home / Work on Mind Management.

Though managing your time and money is essential, you have to ask yourself what’s going in your mind is even more crucial. Negative self-talk will kill the best intentions. You are wise to expect that relatives and friends are not likely to be encouraging. But you may not anticipate how easy it is for your own fears to sabotage your success.

Adding a sideline to your already busy schedule is going to be stressful. Expect it. Give yourself a mental buffer by meditating and going over your goals at least three times a week. Use affirmations. They aren’t just woo-woo. Studies prove they actually work!

Working From Home / A Few Businesses For You To Consider.

Here are four business opportunities that you can first begin working from home as a sideline and grow into a full-time business.

Safety Technology. Every day in the news there are stories about attacks, home invasions and robberies. People are willing to pay for devices that will keep them safe. Give them the help they need by joining Safety Technology, a company that sells stun guns, pepper sprays, personal alarms and surveillance systems. The company requires no upfront investment, provides an array of moneymaking plans and drop ships for free.

Home Video Studio. Do you love taking videos of family, pets, on vacations, everywhere? Turn it into a lucrative sideline. Home Video Studio provides 27 profit centers with their turnkey business. It requires a fairly high upfront capital investment, but no experience is needed and they provide complete training.

Charter Financial Note Brokering. Find people who want a lump sum for their notes, like financed mortgages, deeds of trust, structured court settlements, lottery winnings and business notes. Get a referral fee when you connect them with Charter Financial Note Brokering. This opportunity requires a small upfront fee. You receive ongoing training and support.

Go-Vuu Distributor. Go-Vuu is a handy gadget that attaches to the center of the steering wheel so that the navigating device stays right in front of the driver’s eyes.
