Rules for Working at Home

  • If it is easy, it won’t work. If you love what you do, you are more likely to be able to do the work that a small business requires, but it is still work. You have to learn about your business, set it up, and promote it, no matter what it is. You even have to do that with a distributorship or business package. If it is not work, it does not pay.
  • There are no secrets, only skills, strategies and techniques. Anyone promising to tell you Secrets, or teach you Tricks is on the shady side of integrity. There are no secrets, and there are no tricks. There is knowledge, time saving strategies, key bits of information that can transform your understanding from unworkable to workable, and techniques that make the job either simpler or more successful. You need knowledge, tools, and experience. So look for that instead of looking for something that does not exist.
  • If you want to make money you have to work every day. OK, so you don’t have to work EVERY day, but you have to work every day that you reasonably can. That means you have to FIT IT IN! It has to be your priority. If you are a weekend warrior, then you have to work the majority of the weekends. If you are a work at home mom, then you need to find time each day around your family and get in at least a few minutes of work. If you are committed to replacing a full time income with working at home, then you’ll have to put in 4-8 hours a day more days than you take off. You have to give it the same dedication that you would a standard job. You cannot just let the days drift by, and not schedule in time when you HAVE to work. Just DO it… and stop making excuses.

Working at home is very doable. It is often chaotic, frequently frustrating, and always hard work. But I do it every day. It has become part of who I am. I learn and grow in it, and I gain more understanding all the time.
