I get a lot of questions from people asking me how they can start a business at home, if they have a full time job also. With 8-15 hours on the average away from home time, spent at a full time job; it can be very difficult to fit a home business into your daily schedule. If you want to have that home business & bring in extra dough, you have to make adjustments to your daily routine.
If you get home from work or the gym at the end of the day, you may not want to work at home. That’s fine. What time do you usually get up in the morning, 6-7-8am? If you get up at 8am, make an adjustment into your lifestyle so you start waking up at 6am instead. Wake up early and work at home in the morning. If having some extra money coming into the household means that much, the adjustment will be easy. Put a simple 2 hours into your business everyday before you go out that door in the morning. Two hours a day doesn’t sound like a lot, but it adds up over time. It’s more than enough to get you going part time. Doing it everyday will make it a routine so you don’t forget anything. When things get easier for you and you learn the tricks of the trade, you can take on more.
Or you may be willing to work at home at the end of your long day. This is how I started. Some people don’t like to work at home, after a long day at your full time job. But I found it so much easier. I gave myself 2-5 hours a day without a problem after my 8 hour a day job. I didn’t have kids as I know this can be a problem. But on a positive note; I have helped plenty of moms who only worked 2 hours a day at home to start. Two hours a day is that magic number, when you can get just enough accomplished at your new part time home business. When your home business gets going and you move on to a full time home business; be ready to work 8-18 hour days. But the rewards are well worth it.
Everyone wants to quit their day job and work at home. It’s a lot of work, but I would rather work at home than report to some job I hope I don’t lose. Job security is a huge factor nowadays. There was a time when you could work at a place all your life and retire there. Not anymore. There are always huge layoffs and the unemployment rate has skyrocketed. It finally came out publicly that we may be in a recession. I just have to laugh at this. That’s another story though. That being said, people like to have a backup plan in case they ever lose their job. It’s a normal survival trait to always make sure there is food on the table. Most people just don’t know where to go to get good information on starting a home business.
All though starting and running a business is very easy once you get used to things. It’s a LOT of work to have a successful home business. Yes, you get to stay home in your skibbies. You can take a break whenever you want. But you can never slack on your home business. Keep at it everyday.
Make a life changing choice and dedicate 2 hours a day, everyday (if you can do more great) into your new home business. Even if you only do research for few weeks. As long as you get the ball rolling there is no stopping you. Don’t rely on that full time job anymore. Start your home business now and secure your families financial situation for now and the future. Your job may not be there for you tomorrow. But your home business will be there as long as you want it to be there.. Start your home business today and don’t give up!
