Yesterday I Googled: “why is working at home so satisfying” and found 201,000,000 people had Googled the same question that morning. That’s over two hundred million people questioning the advantages of working at home? Staggering! I have a great interest in human nature and can’t help wondering why if there is so much interest in working at home, why don’t people just do it?
It is so simple to set up an online business and begin a hobby business part-time whilst you continue with your current work. It can be expanded at a later date to a full-time venture.
Yes you have to give up some TV viewing or get up earlier to free some spare-time but if you really want to find out what it is like to work at home and if it is right for you, you won’t find out until you do it!
What fear is holding you back? Do you feel if you try working at home and it doesn’t work for you, or you don’t enjoy it as much as you thought you would, you friends will laugh at you. Why should they, at least you are doing something about your dreams, perhaps they would like to do it too!
If it were a hobby like dancing, or learning a new language, or golf, or fishing; would you worry about taking it up, or finding some time to fit them in? What is different? If it is something you would really like to do read some books, Google keywords explore different niches, really think what topic you are passionate about, that you could turn into a profitable business.
Affiliate Marketing is a good online system for beginners; it is simple and inexpensive to set up and can be developed in many ways later. Most of the work is done for you; you only have to introduce buyers to other people’s products and get paid for doing it!. The suppliers take care of payments delivery and customer queries for you. What could be simpler?
So start thinking of a current interest you have, that other people are interested in; check-out there are books and magazines on the subject; an indication there is an existing and growing market for this niche. Learn more about the subject and find a mentor in that niche; there are companies in virtually every niche looking for affiliates to bring them customers!
I’m doing it and living my dream, it can be frustrating sometimes understanding new concepts, but how often are you frustrated at work? The fun excitement and satisfaction of seeing your business grow far outweigh any negatives for me, try it – what have you got to-loose?
