By the way, it is not only you who is curious to find the answer to the question
“How Can I Work At Home And Make Money”
The statistics reveal that more and more people worldwide work from home.
Of course, part of the answer is in the development of the technologies. Better internet connection, smartphones and other smart devices, video conferences… The list is endless, as it seems the technological revolution is at full speed.
But today I would like to stress on the other half of the answer.
It is the entrepreneurial spirit that overtakes a lot of people. It happened also with us – a family with three small kids, with no additional help from parents or other people. Our situation was even more imperative:
I HAD to find the answer to the riddle called “How can I work at home and make money”. And the reason was not only the income itself. It was also about me, being close to my wife and kids and thus being able to give a hand whenever needed.
So I will share you my personal experience how did I stay at home and made it possible to work.
YOU CAN DO IT, TOO!!
The approach I will share with you could be used by both groups of people: those who have 9 to 5 jobs, and those like me – I have left my job and jumped into the “deep water” of the entrepreneurship. I will give my specific advice to each group.
But before I give the answer of the question of HOW can I work at home and make money“, I want to discuss with you a bit more on WHETHER it is so good to work from home?
Speaking of home entrepreneurship, I will put on the table both pros and cons and try to extract for you which strategy is working best, taking into consideration both advantages and disadvantages.
Here I am going to reveal to you
What is the Healthy Balance Between Home And Office Work?
To explain my point of view, I will take as a ground the results of a recent research from Gallup Institute.
It shows that in 2016 the happiest workers in the U.S. were those, working 60 to 80 percent of their time from home and the rest of the time – from the office.
Simply put, it appears that people prefer to stay 3 or 4 days at home and to go 1 or 2 days to the office.
Something like a mix between socializing in the real office and the coziness of the home office. Could be a bit surprising for someone, but It seems that none of the two pure models – only home or only office works fine.
Armed with this info, let’s see how it could work best for us.
PROs Of The “Work At Home And Make Money” Approach
1. We are flexible with our time – which part of the day we will work is our decision. E.g. we might bring the kids to the doctor during the day and catch up with work during the evening;
2. We are flexible with our task management – how we will organize our “to do list” is up to us, according to our personal tasks;
3. We don’t lose time with empty talks with other co-workers, or present at pointless business meetings;
4.We do not lose time and money to commute.
But what are the
CONs Of The “Work At Home And Make Money” Approach?
1. Lack of socializing with other people/co-workers. This is not only a vent. You lose the chance to share ideas and listen to someone’s else ideas. You miss the feedback, the comments, the constructive criticism towards your actions.
2. It is very easy to lose focus while working at home. The distractions are more than you may assume: each and every kid’s quarrel could block your business thought. Not to mention TV, Social Media, Books. Everything in YOUR home could turn into YOUR distraction.
3. Procrastination! Being your own boss might have some bad consequences like lack of control on your “to do” list. Come on, we all know that it is inherent to our human nature to try to find all possible ways NOT to do what should be done if there is no authority to control us.
The result? We are wasting our time. We are not effective. We DO NOT make the money, we COULD HAVE MADE if being effective!
