A Passion Can Lead To Work At Home Income

Oct 12, 2007
I have observed many work at home moms trying to find legitimate work at home opportunities. I have found that it is quite challenging for these women to find legitimate opportunities that will compensate them in a decent manner. There are many programs, offers, and promises listed on the internet that inform these women that they can make a decent income by performing a certain job in the comfort of their home. However, I have discovered that many of these programs fail to uphold their end of the deal.

I recently interviewed a work at home mom that has found success when it comes to earning a substantial work at home income. When inquiring about her "secret of success", she shared the following with me:

"It has taken me years to find an opportunity that pays an income that is decent enough to allow my husband and me to work from home, homeschool our children, and enjoy life. The secret? The secret is finding a passion that can lead to work at home income. Here, I will share with you a little bit of what I mean when it comes to this passion.

We have all seen the advertisements... "work at home", "make fast cash now", "legitimate work at home business", "be your own boss". I am sure that a number of you have seen the commercial where the woman states: "I made over $1,000.00 yesterday, and I only worked four hours". I often sit and wonder where these opportunities are and what in the world these individuals are doing to make that kind of money in one day! However, in my world, which I often refer to as "the real world", it is possible for me to make at least $100.00 -$200.00 per day by simply working consistently.

I decided that, instead of searching out the common work at home programs, like "get paid to surf the internet", "get paid to read emails", "make money filling out surveys", and "make money playing games", that I would search out opportunities that I was personally passionate about. I decided that instead of going with the mainstream money making perks on the internet, I would go with what I enjoyed.

I love to write. Writing is my passion. I decided to take a chance and search out writing opportunities. Lo, and behold, I discovered that there is a huge market of work at home opportunities available in the article writing market. The wonderful thing about this particular market was that I did not have to worry about losing any money at all. As a matter of fact, I have not had to pay any of the companies that I have had work with one cent for performing the work that is requested, however, I have made thousands and thousands of dollars by participating in work offered by those looking for website content, e-books, press releases, and more. "

It is important to understand that your passion may not be the same as the woman that I have quoted here. Article writing may not be a field that you are interested in. However, you may enjoy taking photographs. You may get a real sense of accomplishment by creating beautiful gift baskets. Perhaps you like creating DVD movies for friends and relatives. Do you enjoy buying items at thrift stores, fixing them up, and reselling them? There are many things that you can have a passion about and create an income with it by working at home. Sometimes, it is best to step outside the box and get a little creative with your interests and hobbies.

The following lists some "passions" that many stay at home moms have. Perhaps one of these could be used to create an income from home:

- Enhancing and Editing Digital Images

- Creating Newsletters from Home for Businesses

- Conducting Telephone Research

- Opening a Daycare

- Elderly Care

- Tutoring Services

- Sponsoring an Arts and Crafts class for kids during holiday breaks from school

- Data Entry

- Telemarketing

- Designing Clothes

- Mending Clothes

- Creating PowerPoint Presentations

There are many different reasons why you may elect to work at home. Perhaps you want to spend more time with your kids, or have more time to yourself. It could be that you are not happy in your current career, and want to discover a new career. Regardless of the reason that you make the choice to pursue your passion at home, it is quite possible to do.

In conclusion, I have found that there are many opportunities available to the women who wish to work at home. The best way to do this is to ensure that you pursue activities that you are passionate about. By going this route, you are likely to be more successful than those who just go for whatever opportunity that comes available.
