An interesting question that you probably also asked yourself…
I mean, we are all told to get a JOB when you leave high school and those that went to college were also told also to get a job…. but at least a job that can repay the school loans.
Because… no one told me that I also could work from home when going through school…
I was conditioned through whole my school life that I would eventually work in an office building or lab. There is NO hope of staying at home eating M&M’s and playing xbox at 11am….
And it’s just there where lies the difference between performance driven results and time driven results.
When you work for yourself.. it’s not about how many hours you clock in. It’s about producing!
At a JOB it’s more about getting your work done! And if you finish early you gotta STAY AT WORK and do something else….
Why is that!? The sun is shining outside, I wanne go out…
Working from home is a REAL possibility…
The traditional image of working from home is stuffing envelopes, doing mail order gigs or work in old style Network Marketing companies like Herbalife or Tupperware. Some people even think working from home involves getting involved in a scam.
The truth is, working from home is a viable, legitimate option!
Millions of people work from home in… virtual call centers, as writers, videographers, sales and marketing, online tutoring and more. Any job where you can provide a digital product (like an article) or a service you can do online or over the phone can be turned into a work-at-home gig.
There are lots of illegitimate companies out there, but as internet businesses becomes more sophisticated, there is more regulation. There are tons of sites with legitimate work from home jobs, and lots of review sites to tell you exactly what to expect.
How I Work At Home
I’m a living proof that working from home really does work. When I started, I started with Herbalife, hoping for the big break selling other people’s stuff… I would also do market research, found out what sold well, and how much I could sell it for. I would then find a place where I could buy them cheap enough to make a profit (after fees and shipping). My first taste if properly targeting an Avatar, an exact person to sell to.
That is how an astonishing number of people start out working from home. eBay, Amazon and 2nd hand sites, generates quick cash for really dedicated sellers. The best sellers can make large profits and sell quickly.
The drawback to selling online is the constant work – as soon as you sell something, you have to go out and buy more. You can’t always find the product again, so you have to make sure you can find enough products to sell.
My Dream was to create a residual income, an income that kept coming in regardless if I worked that day or not. I thought selling Herbalife products would do the trick… and it Can! As long as you keep working on it, selling products. But I believed there should be other ways to earn money from home…
So I started to surf the internet and I started studying affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing would make me a rich.. right? Of course, I studied a lot, worked very hard, had lots of things that didn’t work, but because I stuck with it, I became wealthy after failing a LOT…. a LOT.
Your results will depend on you, your work, how many times you fail WITHOUT giving up!
How To Get Started
If you want to get started working from home, then you will want to decide not only how much money you want to make, but how much time you have. If you are single and work a part-time job, then you will have a lot more time than someone who has a family and works full time. You will have to find something that will pay you enough, in your available time, to meet your goals.
Being time available is a huge bonus. (Check out this handy Timer tool, to time your work)
This is selling other people’s products and earning a commission. A good example would be selling real estate.
A real estate agent doesn’t build the house, nor do they have to buy the house in order to resell it. They connect the buyer and seller and make a commission off of the deal.
Think Middle Man/Woman
I really recommend internet affiliate marketing.
This is selling other people’s products online. You make a commission when you connect a buyer and a seller. I will get into how that works in the next video.
