Work From Home
The future of work from home is remote or telecommuting work. It’s the new face of job-sharing and it’s very flexible. Basically there two classification of this type of work. Your are either a employee or not.
My focus will be on being a freelancer or an independent contractor.
Step 1 should be: Know your Why? One of the most important things you need to know. When you want to make money from home is why you’re doing it.
Figure out your approach and decide how much time you will put towards starting it. Plus what type of product or service you will perform. You will need to have some seed money to start with and don’t give up.
When first starting out affiliate marketing is a good choice. Low start up costs with many of them being free. You will just need a smart phone to promote whatever the service or product they have.
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others. Earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make and no customer service required.
Affiliate marketing can be lucrative, but it takes a commitment of time and money to make it a real business. Do thorough research before you jump on the affiliate-marketing bandwagon.
Traditional advertisements and selling your own products can help if your affiliate-marketing revenue dries up.
You’ll probably work from home if you work remotely. But that doesn’t mean you have to have fill a corner of your living room. With a clunky desk, a huge monitor, and an ugly rolling chair.
You can fit your office wherever it fits in your life. I’ve heard about a remote worker who uses there kitchen breakfast bar. As a standing desk (all those health benefits with no investment!).
Another approach is to converted part of your bedroom closet into a “hidden” office. This way you can just shut the work door away at the end of the day.
And you’re not tied to your home, either. That doesn’t mean you’re only other location will be the coffee shop around the corner. You can take care of your job while traveling, hanging out at the airport, Dentist or Dr office
A lot of the work that can be done remotely nowadays can also be done on a flexible schedule. So, night owls, rejoice! You can still put in your eight hours without starting at 8 AM.
Because you don’t have colleagues just a few feet away or a tech team one floor down. You’ll find yourself developing the skill of looking for your own answers. Those becoming more proactive to find what you need on your own.
And you’ll also end up with some skills simply because you need them to work well remotely. For example, you’ll probably notice that you’re writing more clear and concise emails.
Of course you’ll see an immediate difference in your bank account. When you don’t need to bear the costs of commuting.
But you’ll also find savings in other areas. You won’t have to force yourself into a suit and polished shoes anymore. If that’s not your style—no more separate wardrobes for work and for the rest of your life!
And you can also save on food costs since you’ll easily be able to whip up your own lunch and coffee if you work from home.
You can work from home and with some willpower and a steady routine, you’ll soon learn to avoid being distracted by the TV or your next load of laundry.
And, in fact, you should find yourself getting more done when you work remotely. That’s because you can control your working situation much more.
