Your Working At Home Career

Aug 17, 2007
Just for a moment, what if?

Working at home has always been a field of dreams dream for millions of us. Right? After all, who would ever want to spend their life in a crummy job for very little pay and satisfaction? All of us, no matter what our profession or nationality, should want a little more out of life than what we actually have now.

Working at home, at something good, seems like the answer to so many of our problems. We sometimes might ask ourselves, "What would life be like if I didn't have to wake up each morning and spend the day doing something that I don't like? That offers no true challenges to be creative?

How would I feel if I could work at home, especially at something good?

I can possibly answer that question. You would feel great. If you didn't have to wake up each day to go to work, you would have a terrific time, assuming that you didn't like something about your work in the first place. If you love your job and have a rip-roaring good time each day, then you probably don't need to read the rest of this article.

This article is written for those who are undecided about one thing: the decision to keep their current job, or to start working at home. To break the job umbilical cord strings. In other words, those of us who want to work at home.

Decision, decisions good or bad?

If you decide to work at home, you are clearly trying to become, at least partially, self-employed. Or an entrepreneur, if you will. This decision should not be taken lightly. It is not for everyone. A home based business, as comfortable as it may seem, carries a significant amount of risk with it. There is always a possibility that the business will fail.

You can just start small at first and wait until you are established before completely breaking away. However, if you make good, careful decisions right from the start and set a solid foundation for the years ahead, you will drastically increase your chances of success. Starting your own home business is risky. There is no doubt about it. But you also stand to realize massive gains, perhaps even amass a fortune!

There are advantages that will accrue to you if you decide to work at home. For many, not having to go to the office or store daily is incentive enough. After all, haven't you had the experience of wanting to sleep for a few more minutes, but had to get up because you were late for work? Or even work later when you were working on something really exciting?

We've all experienced that. When you work at home, you have to take charge of your life if you are to succeed. You take control of your time and decide how to spend it. Of course, this can be a two-edged sword - if you are not the disciplined type. You might end up procrastinating on your tasks, or perhaps not doing them at all. This will most certainly cause your work at home business to fail.

So before you decide to try and work at home, ask yourself, are you disciplined enough? Being at home will present you with countless opportunities to shirk your work. Unless you can trust yourself to do the right thing, you're better off earning a regular wage.

But if you're the type of person who has the courage and the will to go after your dreams, then by all means! You're the type of person who has nothing to lose by working at home, and everything to gain.

If your final decision is to do it then you just need to know two basic things;
1-Decide exactly what you want.
2-Carefully decide exactly what you have to do to get it and then go do it.
