Working from home Is it worth it?

Working from home  Is it worth it?Home-based businesses are cropping up everywhere you look. People have decided that being their own boss is the way to go. There are thousands of advertisements, junk mail, and email saying you should start your own home business today!But should you really start your own home business? Should you be your own boss? What are the risks to operating your own home business? What are the rewards? How many people are successful at operating their own home business? How do I get started? Should I be answering all those ads that say I am missing the opportunity of a lifetime?These are some of the questions you may be asking yourself every time you see an ad about starting a business from home. In this article, I will try to help you answer themLets start with that first question, Should I start my own home business? The answer to that question is different for everyone. If you hate working nine to five and hate working to make other people rich, then owning your own business might be your answer. If you have some business skill, it helps, however, you do not need to know more than the basics about running your own business. You have to keep several things in mind. Depending on the type of home business you will be operating, do you have the room for it at your house?Do you have a separate space where you can do your work without the normal everyday distractions of being at home. The children, your spouse, the TV, the yard that needs mowing and other things are all distractions that can cut into your workday. Also, understand you will still have to work every day. That doesnt change just because you now have a home business.The bottom line is you need to plan before you make the move to owning your own home business. Make sure it is what you really want and that you are ready to do what it takes to be a success.The second question is much like the first, Do I really want to be my own boss? If you are self-motivated, if you are the type of person who learns fast. if you are a confident type of person, then the answer is yes. If you lack those qualities, then your answer may be no.Again, that question is something only you can decide and it also depends on the type of business you choose to run. If it is a service oriented business you might have an easier time than with a sales-based home business if you are not the outgoing confident type of person.Self-motivation is the one quality you cant do without if you plan to start your own business, whether it will be a home-based business or something else. You will be the one that has to get you out of bed every day and you will be the one that has to tell you to get to work.What are the risks to operating your own home business? They are several. You should not start your own home business right AFTER quitting your day job. Until your home business starts making money, you are likely going to have to keep your current job while building your home business.Again, though, the risks are greater for some people than for others. What are your finances? How much is your monthly overhead? Is your income already stretched to the limits? A single person has a head start. A spouse who is not already working also has an advantage over the main breadwinner in starting a home business.If you are currently working part-time and it costs you almost as much to go to work as you are making, then you may as well take a shot at owning your own business. It isnt likely to be worse than continuing to pursue a dead-end job.What are the rewards? The rewards of owning your own home business are many. If you have a family, even though you still have to work, knowing you are home and close by is a comfort to them. Not having to commute back and forth to work is another plus. The gas and vehicle maintenance you save should be considered your first profits in your new home business.The freedom of being your own boss is another reward. Knowing that it is you who will be making the decisions, who will be responsible for its success, and that it is you who decides everything is reward in itself. Too many times when working for others, we see a better way to do things, but no one listens and you dont have the power to make it happen. In your own home business, you will be making those decisions.The money is the other reward. Why I say, other, is that it isnt as important as the others. Of course you want your business to be successful and it has to make money to be a success, however, if money is your only motivation, I would still say you have less chance of succeeding then many others who are not solely money-motivated.Choose something you truly like or love to do for your home business. Do it because it is what you want to do. Dont choose the type of home business with the amount of income it will generate as the only or most important factor to consider.If you choose something you love to do, it will be easier to motivate yourself and you will obviously enjoy it so much more. When you combine that with the other rewards, such as being close to your family, then the money becomes secondary. At the very same time, you will also find that is the path to making more money. Because you chose something you like to do, you worked harder at it, and now you are making more money. That is how it works.The last question is, How many people succeed in their own home business? My answer is, Exactly the same number of people who chose to do something they enjoy.I hope this article has helped answer some questions you may have had about starting your own home business. I enjoy what I do and really hope that if nothing else, you remember to choose something you enjoy.

I was out'a site!

I was out

I know, by now you are snug and cozy in your own web host's warm fail-proof server with megabytes oozing from every web page.Right now your probably beaming with confidence because you know that your "web host" considers any technical glitch appearing on your website, as a personal affront. I am sure also, that you are benefiting from the spaciousness of a 'gig' or two of roomy server space. This, you no doubt demanded to accommodate the throngs that are attracted magnetically to your website daily, while you reluctantly allow them to purchase your wares.Alas, I once knew that same tranquil feeling!Emphasis here on the past thence, for I recently was required to "trip the Internet fantastic" in search of a new web host.You see, one day when I discovered that my web forms would no longer perform, I calmly reached for Mr. Bell's gadget to inform the hosting company of my little quandary. After all, I had been a star boarder for over two years and quite naturally was under the silly impression that all my problems would be quickly dispatched, instead I was!It appears my web host had recently decided that tech service was just too trivial and bothersome to be of importance.In addition, I had the audacity to relate such an insignificant topic by phone. I guess in some hosting circles answering the telephone is a real no-no.I was briskly informed I must send in what is called a Support Ticket.A support-ticket I discovered, is an email plea for help that gives you all the confidence of waving a distress flag in an empty room, only mine was not as effective!Meanwhile, my little predicament was beginning to aggravate visitors, a feat which I must admit is fun at times, but definitely hard on the pocketbook.So in exasperation, I know you wont believe it but I do get a little peeved at times, I packed my collection of megabytes and began my quest for another web host, along with a Gig, or two of server space.As I skipped merrily along the super highway via my favorite search engine, it soon became apparent that I could no longer cling to my air of confidence, let alone dreams of frugality.Have you noticed lately how they have twisted the meaning of that beautiful word cheap!' As a result its getting harder and harder for me to maintain my image. And the phrase, Customer Service has turned into more of a slogan then a certainty. All too often the term 24/7 support really means, Dont call us, well call you.However, even though this eye-opening search had left me Google-eyezed, I had to admit that there really are many good web hosts populating the Internet.Of course, while searching for my new host I had to concentrate on such seemingly mundane things as; Server side includes, Data transfer rate, and that ever popular Secure socket layers.Boy, I dont know about you, but I certainly want all my sockets, especially the layers, to be secure.And, get a load of those cron jobs, sounds obscene doesnt it! Moreover, are you sure Perl isnt a knitting term.So my advice is, if you have a good web host wrap your arms around your nearest FTP access and hold on for dear life.A good web host is money in the bank. So, may I wish you many happy uploads and profitable downloads.As for me, Ive found the perfect host from which Ill never roam, who would - would you! Now its blue skies forever. Yet I did hear of one that

Guide To Home Office Internet Access

No home office is complete without an Internet connection, because more and more business is being conducted on the Internet, and if you are not connected you are missing out on a great opportunity to connect with your clients, potential clients and of course your suppliers. Internet access will provide you with many opportunities to increase your productivity, although you will want to be careful that you do not use the Internet as a distraction or that it doesn't become one by accident. The first thing that you will need to do is to contact your local Internet provider. There may be a few in your area, so shop around for the best deal before you sign up. Often there are Internet providers competing for your business so you should get a good deal. There will be a few different levels of service and speed that you can choose from. If you are going to be sending a lot of files, or large files through the Internet, you will want high speed service. However, if you do not plan on using the Internet much, you may want to opt for a dial up connection if you are on a budget. Do bear in mind that dialup is being offered by fewer Internet providers each and every day.Once you have the Internet access you will need to set up an email account for your business for clients to contact you. More and more people are using email to contact friends and family so you will not want to miss out of this invaluable connection tool. When you set up an email address you should keep it simple and easy to remember. However, it is important to keep it professional aswell. Keep it as close to the name of your business as possible. If you really want to maximize your growth and productivity, you should consider starting a webpage for your business. A webpage is a great way to tell people about you and what you do. On your webpage you can easily show off your skills, or pictures of your products. Include information on pricing or rates to make it simple for potential clients. And be sure that you make it easy for potential clients to contact you if they have more questions. With more and more people surfing the Internet these days, you can take advantage of this inexpensive marketing tool. While having Internet access is a great boost to your business, you must be careful to avoid the trap of the Internet as well. It is easy to get lost surfing the Internet or sending emails and lose productivity. Be sure that you monitor yourself to stay productive while you are working from home. It is a good idea to turn your email off and only check it at designated times every day instead of every time you get a new message. At least this way you can stay focused on the tasks you need to complete - those that are a priority.

Rich Jerk TV Infomercial Review And 3 Day Action Plan

If you've been on the Internet anytime in the last six months, you've seen an advertisement for the Rich Jerk's ebook. But now he's taken his course to a whole different level! He's promoting his bestseller in paperback along with a CD-ROM that's full of all sorts of goodies, a Rich Jerk optimized web site, and Rich Jerk Web Hosting!The Rich Jerk really gives you an online business that is completely ready to make you money in no time. However, before you buy the Rich Jerk course at http://www.TheRichJerkTV.com you need to know about the biggest scam on the Internet.You see, the biggest problem with the Rich Jerk isn't the information in the course. In fact, it's really good stuff that's crucial to your online success. The biggest problem is that the Rich Jerk can only give you the information... he can't actually come to your house and twist your arm. You have to decide to put his teachings to work for you.So before you go out and buy the Rich Jerk's course, let's go over how you're going to use his course to maximize your action plan.First of all, don't quit your day job just yet. So many people decide that they want to make money online and then on a whim, they quit their day job. This only leads to unnecessary stress in your life that will hinder your concentration.Instead, keep your day job for a bit longer. Just take an hour or so in the evenings (or whenever you're not working) and implement one of the strategies that he teaches. They're all pretty simple once he spells it out in front of you. Soon, you'll find yourself making as much online using Rich Jerk's techniques as you are with your job. Then the decision will be obvious.The second thing you should keep in mind is that you don't want to overload your brain with new information. As an Internet Marketer for over 3 years now, I know how commissions are passed around on the Internet and I know how to think in terms of positioning myself in front of the commissions. I know how information is shared and how it travels from one source to the next.I also know how to find new markets, see what they want to buy, run an advertising campaign properly, and profit from it. But for a new person, this may be a difficult concept to grasp in the beginning.So when you first get the Rich Jerk course in your hands, grab a notebook to jot down ideas that pop in your head - remember, anything goes! Don't hold back here! You want to write down all of your ideas on paper.I suggest you go through the entire course with out implementing any of the techniques that he discusses. You're basically reading through it once just to see what sticks. That way you'll know where your interests are and have a better idea of how you can get started using them.Then, a day or two after you've read the Rich Jerk and expanded on your own ideas in the notebook, go back through the Rich Jerk course again and review what you've learned. Again, you want to write down your ideas in your notebook.By the third day, you should be ready to start putting your ideas in to action. Go ahead and get on the internet and look at some of the websites that he mentions. See if you can figure out how that website owner is making money from his visitors and how it relates to what RichJerk teaches in his course. Many websites make money even if the visitor never buys anything! Others create their own products that sell like crazy... and some sell other people's products!The RichJerk shows you how to do all of this and more to put lots of money in your pocket. He really knows his stuff and that's why he's been able to take his course to TV viewers in the form of an infomercial. His course has become a success both offline and online and he really is changing the way people think about making money online.I strongly suggest you take a look at what the Rich Jerk offers and if you don't like it after you buy it, just ask for a refund.It's really as simple as that. Personally, I'm the type of person that would regret not spending a few measly bucks on a course that has changed the lives of so many people, simply because I wasn't sure if it would really help me or not.

Are You Ready For eBay Success?

Get Rich Quick Scams RevealedRead this article before you consider paying for a "get rich quick" program. From: Silent SaleEverybody would love to make lots of money quickly, working from home, and only doing a few hours of work per week. I've spent the past two years trying to find a great way of doing this. Only over the course of the past few months have I found any "get rich quick" programs worth buying. I've been trying to make money online for a long time. I had a few small websites, but they never made much more than a few hundred per month. It was easy money and didn't require much work on my part, but I knew there were people out there doing better than I was and I knew I could do as well as them. Now, I've seen a lot of "get rich quick" programs. Most of these people make claims about earning $2000/day with Google or something similarly insane. Almost all of these people are complete liars. Even if they were making $2000/day with Google AdSense, it'd be because they had high- traffic websites with a lot of quality content. I'd know, because in one whole month, I never even made half of what they promised I'd make daily with their programs. Maybe you've already been scammed by one of these fraudsters. Anyway, I finally got sick of what was being offered. I decided I'd look through the all of the "get rich quick" programs I could find and see if there were any that were actually legitimate. I found that there were owners selling their programs for well over $100, but the information in them could be found almost anywhere online for free. Additionally, they all contained out-of-date information, had no e-mail support, no money back guarantees, and broken links in the downloads section. In conclusion, almost all of the programs I found were completely useless. The owners knew it, but they couldn't care less about their customers since they didn't offer refund policies! Amazingly, while looking through all of the programs, I actually did find a few legitimate programs. They were run by ordinary people like you and me, and they had found some great methods of making money from their home by doing very little work. I spent some time working with those programs, and my income is now ten times what it used to be. These programs provided a large amount of great information on how to make extra money on your computer doing very little work. Numerous customers had provided great feedback and reviews for their products. Many of them have started to make money just days after buying! Their programs have excellent prices, and the authors have a group of paid staff who are dedicating to helping you or providing assistance if you need any. I must say I was amazed! If you do decide to purchase any of the programs listed below, I recommend you join quickly. Most of the owners tell me they are getting an overwhelming number of sales and plan on raising prices in the near future, so order while prices are still low! To Your Online Success,Silent Sale
