The world today is vastly different than the world of your father, mother or particularly your grandparents; and depending on your point of view, this can be good or bad. If you're standing at the crossroads of a career choice and wondering. "Is it really possible to make a living working from home?" I commend your vision and echo your thoughts with a resounding "Yes." However look carefully before you leap into the online world, it is a land of opportunity, and also peril. The opportunities and manifold and so too are the scams and false promises; many can be extremely lucrative, while others can leave you wondering.
"Where did I go wrong"? First and foremost you need to provide for the necessities of life, being certain you either have the savings or income to. Pay your bills, Feed your family, Save for retirement, etc. If you're going to be successful, here is one crucial piece of advice; treat this as a business, not a hobby. Sounds simple but it is vital to your long-term success. If you have a unique or in demand skill, it's possible to establish a profitable home based business centered around your skill set; if you're lacking in this area, that doesn't mean you can't succeed, simply that you'll need to look outward and find a suitable program, product or service that fits your personality, goals and ensures you'll produce the needed cash flow to survive. One way of ensuring success is to align yourself with a company that has a proven track record, provides excellent customer support and gives you the opportunity for long term success and profit.
You'll need to do your homework, visit their website, and (if possible) talk with others using the same service and/or product. This shouldn't be difficult if the company or program is above board, in fact they'll probably encourage it. There's an old expression.
"If it seems too good to be true, it probably is". There are a multitude of books, programs and websites promising to make you rich, most are like the "snake oil" salesmen of old, promising the moon; delivering a mere reflection. "One sound idea is all you need to achieve success.
" - Napoleon Hill "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars." - Les Brown "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
" - Ralph Waldo Emerson I've included the above quotes to illustrate a point. If you have a dream, plan or goal, make it happen don't listen to the naysayers saying the only path is a job. That may have been true a generation ago, today however is a time of ideas and opportunity and with only two thoughts in mind you can live life on your own terms.
One. believe in yourself.Two. believe in the product, company or service you're promoting. If you're marketing your own unique skill or service, number one is paramount. If you're using another company or service in your quest for financial freedom, then you must believe in the company.
We are not talking blind faith; rather knowledge that you'll gain by researching the company, comparing it against other, reading the forums, constructing a game plan; this is simply sound business planning. When you're armed with this knowledge, when you believe in yourself, have set realistic goals and know the company or product you represent is stable, you'll be filled with enthusiasm and each day will mark the beginning of a new adventure; an adventure that can help you realize your dream of freedom; freedom not only measured with money, but also the time to enjoy it.
