How To Actually Make Money Working From Home

I know what you’re thinking. Not another “Work From Home, Get Rich and Live the Life of My Dreams” article, but I’m hoping to approach this concept from a different angle. I’m hoping you’ll stick with me for a few minutes so that you can learn how this is something that you absolutely can do.

One thing that adds to the lack of trust in “Work from Home” opportunities is that most people just don’t know anyone who has successfully accomplished doing it. With that in mind, you may be surprised to find out that there are millions of people throughout the world who have successful home-based businesses. If they can do it you can too, have you ever taken time to think about why you can’t? What makes you different from them?

Let’s take a look at a few factors that drive people to work from home with success.

A Good Reason. This may sound really obvious, but it actually is less obvious than you might think. The reason that so many people quite a work from home opportunity is because they didn’t take time to clearly define why they were doing it. Most people enjoy the idea of getting rich while working from home, but money alone has proven to actually not be a good enough reason to stay motivated.

If earning an income from home is something that you’re interested in investigating further, it’s probably because you see a need that your current job or career isn’t able to provide. Many people like the idea of working from home because it provides the flexibility they seek in order to spend more time with their families, to expand their horizons and actually make the steps necessary in order to achieve their goals and aspirations.

To keep you motivated to work from home and stick it through to success, one must come up with a solid reason for doing so. It’s “that reason” that will keep you moving forward, keep you motivated when you encounter obstacles and help you rise victorious.

A Simple System To Follow. Once you’ve determined a solid reason for working a home-based business, it’s important to get plugged in to the proper system that will help you to do the same as other successful people. There is a definite system that works just like science and delivers the same results every time. Often, when people don’t succeed, it’s because they haven’t been plugged into the right system that will help them see things all the way to their goals and dreams.

One aspect of simplicity in a system is making sure that you know how to get paid. You obviously want to get paid for the efforts you will make and there are opportunities that offer 100% commission pay outs such as Peter Wolfing’s system for earning an income from home.

Do The Same. Once you learn the system for success, DON’T REINVENT THE WHEEL. Any successful home business entrepreneur will tell you to just follow the system for success. Do the same as the people that have seen success before you, and as mention, you have a greater ability to be successful.

Making And Maintaining A Names List

The most important thing you can do for your business is make a list. Initially, dedicate some time exclusively to making a written list of everyone you know everywhere. Include acquaintances from years ago and now. Married people should “brainstorm” in making the list. Include ambitious people you know who might want to improve their financial status or want more time with their family and friends.

DO NOT PREJUDGE ANYONE! The biggest error you can make is thinking, “They won’t need money,” or “They are too busy,” or “They wouldn’t be good at this.” Since your mind stores names by categories, systematically start your list the same way. Always carry your list with you so you can write a name down when it comes to mind. Your list will NEVER be completed since you will always be adding to it! One of the easiest was to think of names is by occupation. You can refer to the Yellow Pages business section to jog your memory even further.

*If your first list does not contain at least 100 names, you are pre-screening and should consult your sponsor for help with other techniques. Your first list will grow rapidly for several days as you see or recall other people, so keep your list with you at all times. This list becomes a starting point for both building an organization and customer base, and will continue to grow as you meet new people.
