Avoid these 5 Pitfalls When You Want to Make Money Working From Home

By

More and more people are looking to work from home these days.  Their reasons are varied.  They might have an entrepreneur spirit, wanting to be in charge of their own destiny.  They might be in an economic slump with downsized jobs or benefits, struggling to support themselves or a family.  They might just be yearning for something new and different.  Whatever the reason, there are multiple avenues for work at home situations.

Once you have done your research and embarked on your course, there will be pitfalls to avoid during the early months.

  • No written plan or log It is imperative to have a written journal.  There are two aspects to this philosophy.

Business Plan Wikepidia defines a business plan as a formal statement of a set of business goals, the reasons why they are believed to be attainable, and the plan for reaching those goals.  If you do not know how to write a business plan, there are many resources available on the internet.  It does not have to be complicated.  Start simple, review it monthly, and it will continue to grow.

Daily Log As your business becomes more complicated, it is important to write down everything that you have accomplished that day.  As time goes by, you may not remember what action you did when.  You can use something as simple as a spiral notebook (don’t tear out sheets for other things) or create an excel sheet.  As you are working through your day, you will find that there are several items that was not accomplished.  Start them on the next day’s log and check mark off as they are accomplished.

  • Lack of Time Management Time management is crucial.  Structure your day for accomplishing different goals.  For example:  15 minutes for making new facebook friends, 1 hour for article writing, 30 minutes ads, 30 minutes inspirational reading, etc.  You can use an excel spreadsheet or your outlook calendar. Computer Stress
  • Discouragement When success is not immediate, we often fall prey to discouragement.  Use these methods when your energy is dragging.  Receive encouragement from your Shadow Team, remember your why, focus on a task.  Positive action dispels the negative thoughts.
  • Lack of Focus How do you stay focused?  By following your plan.  It is so easy to get distracted by everyday life.  Make sure that your plan includes you and your family.
  • Commitment How strong is your commitment to your goals.  Commitment helps you through the discouragement and focus issues.

As you can see, all of these pitfalls are intertwined as a whole, but still individual.  Everyone, from time to time, faces one of these demons.  The only person who can succeed through them is YOU.

  • Display your why prominently in the room where you work.
  • Write down your plan of action
  • Write down your time management plan
  • Everyday reaffirm your commitment to your choice.

Everyone can have a successful work at home business.  Explore your options, make a commitment.  TODAY!

Here’s to a successful home business.
