You’ve Got it Going On If You Are Working At Home

Working at home is really almost like not working. When you compare, you would be surprised how much of the ‘stress’ in the environment at your job has absolutely nothing to do with the actual work you do. Depending on what the environment is/was like for you in your career, this will make sense to you to varying degrees.


Working at home allows you to appreciate your life because you are living in a relaxed atmosphere. Right from waking up in the morning, your life is more pleasant. You can get up whenever you wake up, not when you are forced to. If you think about this difference, right there you can see why your life is more relaxed and agreeable.

There is no more need to rush to get ready for work and then to battle traffic or public transportation. When you are working at home, you can just take your time, getting up and getting ready for your day to begin and you logon to the Internet. You are already there and ready to be productive with 100% of your energy as you are not already exhausted.

It is fine if you choose to work for a few hours and then to take a break to do something else, for example give your family some attention, do some exercise, or run errands to use the time productively even when you are on a break from work.

Having gotten some things off your agenda, you come back to your computer feeling good and ready to accomplish something more for your business. You may feel like working several hours to finish out your business tasks, or maybe you will keep working longer and just take a break for dinner or call it a day at that juncture.

The point is, when you are working from home you are in control of your time and can enjoy your life. It is still very important that you have the discipline to get your work done so that you will succeed with your business. Having a great time all the time does not mean you don’t need to do whatever is required to excel with your business. Remember it is what makes it all possible if it is.

You are in control. You can start out small and build up as you get more creative and productive in your home environment. You can develop your business plan and procedures for your own timeline and keep exceeding your own standards. You will pick up speed as you get used to your ‘routine’, and rather than to slack off at that point, the best bet is to keep adding more and more ways to earn more money.


Be Free At Home

‘Free At Home’ – the best part of this meaning is you are free! You are working for you! You are spending your day on your terms, on your time. So starting right at the get-go, things are looking better than sitting in a traffic jam waiting to get stuck in your cubicle for 8-hours.

get off the wheel

One of the most unpleasant things about working at a job is being shocked into consciousness by an alarm clock every day. You are like a hamster on a wheel. As soon as the alarm goes off you are rushing around to meet your time constraints of being at work by an exact time after stressing that you won’t make it in traffic; then you must eat lunch at a certain time, and return by a set time. Then you will need to stay and work to a certain time, and hopefully not later.

You might notice there is no freedom to ‘live’ in this scenario. Where is your life? After 5:00 pm until time to go to sleep so you can get up and do it all over again tomorrow. So wonderful you get a few hours off the wheel and can actually breathe a little.

However, working free at home allows you to work your own hours. It doesn’t mean you don’t have to work though. On the other hand, you may have to force yourself to stop since working at home online is so much fun. Most people really enjoy their life looking at it this way.

You get to decide when you will work, how long you will work and to some degree how much money you will earn, which is likely very closely related to how much you work and how hard you try on a consistent basis to develop your business.

Some people may feel they would really miss being around their co-workers – however there is a huge, world-wide community online and with forums, web conferences, social networks, text messengers and Skype, you will be networking with people just as much or as little as you want to!

Free at home jobs usually involve doing Internet marketing. Sales usually plays a huge role in most businesses and of course that goes hand in hand with marketing. If you have some other business skills you can build into a service business where you can earn money, that will work nicely. There are many jobs you can do online but in order to promote whatever you choose it will involve marketing and sales either as a means or as a means to an end.

Your imagination is the only limitation and the greatest part is you can start one thing and end up with an entirely different business at the end of the day. You are not stuck on any wheel! You can start out with a (flexible) plan, maybe with something sure. As time goes on and your expertise grows, you can take that to new dimensions!


The Ever-Evolving Definition of Blogging

Originally the word ‘blog’ was short for ‘web log’. Literally it is/was something akin to an online diary where people just recorded their daily activities. However, the definition of blogging is very much in flux, as always unfolding new technologies evolve that may redefine what a blog can do for a business.


For many years, blogs were assumed to be text-based messages on websites. They always were an invaluable way to advertise your business discreetly because they are a permanent record. As long as you keep the blog going, your business will be promoted online. This is versus most advertising that has parameters such as how many times it will be displayed or for what period of time.

Now the applications that can be promoted by blogging are just endless. Many businesses, even offline businesses, have blogs and use them for a variety of things such as the latest technical news, or to have a question and answer facility. Millions can see the answer to one person asking a common question and it being answered by an acknowledged expert. This keeps down the need for an intense customer service response as well as it may help to promote sales when people have any reservations they may have dispelled by the Q&A format.

Of course there are still just fun blogs where people can discuss anything they want to from relationships to hobbies and interests. As well people with various agendas such as politics, religion, etc. have made good use of blogging. Even these can represent income if done properly. The more bloggers began to explore all the ways that they can use a blog for their own purposes, whatever they are, the more the boundaries of what could be called a “blog” can be expanded and ‘monetized’.

As blogging has evolved, plain text has expanded into text with graphics or photos and then to videos. Now mobile blogging devices will add to the many ways blogging can be purposed. It seems like the possibilities are endless. Not to mention the scope of the audience is world-wide and there are many ways to generate traffic to a blog so that people will see it.

So the only surprise is there are still people who want to believe they don’t know how to blog and refuse to accept the fact that it is nearly idiot-proof once it is set up. Ok so this can be a little technical to get started. Certainly though almost anyone who knows how to log on to the Internet can find a way to sign up for a blogging service and set up the account. Then it is menu driven – something really not difficult like following prompts to ‘Post’ and “Add new’ (write something) or ‘Edit’ (fix something) and then ‘Publish’. Boom. You are broadcasting to gazillions!

As they say, ‘where there is a will there is a way’ and in this case there is an easy way. For all of the value that blogging can add to any business, it seems like people at all levels will make it a priority to figure out how to use this medium for their own benefit. It’s easy and it’s free – what more can you ask!
