Stress seems to be hitting our current world like a plague. It’s not the Black Death that will kill us but the hurry, hurry, worry syndrome. Life is one big rush; take the children to school, dash to work, shopping at lunchtime, grab a sandwich and then the whole thing repeats itself in reverse, until in the evening its time to catch up on chores until we fall into bed; to be repeated again and again. Meanwhile children are amused by computer games and TV, with possibly little controlling influence as everyone is too busy. Toys are used to replace time, where is this leading? Could it be to unruly overweight children, and exhausted adults?
Both Men and woman are caught up in overtime and deadlines. We work and live to pay for holidays so we can relax, or to buy more commodities to impress others, Our values are topsy-turvy. Our society has gone mad. At least in Europe where the weather is hotter people move around more slowly and behave in a more leisurely manner, have time for their families with less pretentious lifestyles and different values.
Not so long ago I worked in an office where the pressure was so high to make sales we hardly spoke to one another except for 2 minutes at eleven when the tea was brought in. My job was to call medical surgeries and it was amazing to discover the number of staff that were off sick, some long-term for weeks on end. This must be getting worse with the pressures on the health service. No doubt other industries are equally hit by stressful living.
No wonder when I typed “I want to work at home on my laptop” into Google today 104,000.000 other people were doing the same!
So what work can be done at home on a laptop? As you will see if you investigate there are some choices, however affiliate marketing is probably the simplest way to start online. You are paid in return for sending traffic to other companies’ products, without needing to learn how to build a website, take payments or deal with deliveries. It does take time to build an income as with any other business but it is relatively inexpensive to set up.
Find a mentor you can work with who also has a good range of great value products to share with your prospective customers, check it is a well-run system in a popular niche. Some research is essential before you take the plunge.
Look on YouTube bookstores and your local library for ideas. You will find loads of information available. Start now whilst you have a job to support you as although starting online is inexpensive you will need some cash.
It is difficult to fit in something extra to your already busy work load, but be committed to your venture treat it as a new hobby business initially and enjoy the experience. Make a plan of action and allow time to learn the techniques. It is worth it in the end and you need to experience working at home whilst you have a secure income to see that you enjoy it. I love the peace and solitude and freedom to make choices. Is this what you are looking for?
