Make Extra Income From Home

Aug 17, 2007
You have seen the ads proclaiming you can make money at home filling out surveys. You can but you will have to spend every waking hour and even some of the ones during which you are sleeping to make a living at it. While there may be some survey companies that offer decent money for filling out surveys you almost have to subscribe, at a nominal cost, to a company that forwards you a list of survey companies.

The ones that are not out of date will require you to file a free registration and depending on many factors such as where you live, income level, married, single and many others, the companies will determine if you are suited for their surveys. Not every person will be eligible to get paid for their opinions and while you wait for one that you qualify for payment to fill out, you can seek other ways to earn extra income from home.

There are many franchises available, although the word franchise is rarely used and most push the idea of running your own online business from home. This offers a lot of appeal in setting your own hours and not having a daily commute and listening to a boss on your job. However, these business are successful because they operate within prescribed parameters and if you run the business outside those parameters your odds of success decline.

A franchised business only works when you duplicate the existing business. That means performing all the tasks needed to be done in the exact way your training instructs you to complete them. Many people have trouble with that concept believing that since they are paying the franchise fees and doing the work, they should be able to do so their way.
It does not work that way.

If you want to earn extra money at home and want a piece of someone elses business, you need to be prepared to work the business their way or find your own to operate. Those who insist on running a business their way, can do so but they will have to start the business from scratch. Many successful business models exist that can be adapted to your line of work and help you succeed in business.

Having the business savvy to understand everything that goes into running a business will help you realize that you may be a fantastic plumber but not good as a business person. Advertising, accounting and promotions are all part of running a business and unless you can do that or are in a position to hire people who can, you are better off remaining a plumber. Not everyone is meant to run their own business and many will fail regardless of how good they are at what they do.
