Why You Should Try to Earn Extra Money Online With a Home Business

There is nothing more apparent in recent years than the fact that the cost of living is rising, while at the same time, income is stagnant and even shrinking or disappearing. This should be a concern to everyone whether it is salaries or investments for retirement.

be prepared

We do not control the economy as much as we would like to believe we do as consumers and stockholders. The sad truth is that many people who have wisely invested their money over the years to build a ‘nest egg’ have seen that disappear, sometimes entirely. Real property has been lost right along with their cash investments.

There is no longer the security of knowing you will have a job as long as you do your best to keep it. Due to corporate ‘downsizing’, ‘workforce reduction’, ‘outsourcing’ and bankruptcies, there is good reason to prepare for the time when you could be suddenly unemployed. If you were planning to retire you could instead be looking for part-time work to make ends meet.

You have no doubt heard the expression ‘you can’t get blood out of a turnip’? Well in this context, a fixed income (social security, pensions, etc.) are worth exactly the same amount, but every other cost has risen exponentially. Rent, utilities, food, medical insurance and other necessities are skyrocketing. It means that the dollar you had is worth about 25 cents in the real world today.

So it makes a lot of sense that you should be using your ‘spare’ time to build something extra that you can depend on to supplement your income. There is always a chance that you won’t ever need it and at the ‘end of the day’ you can spend it for a vacation or to make a down payment on a new car or other luxury. Either way it just makes sense to do something extra to ‘feather your nest’.

While it is still important for your mental and physical health to relax and enjoy yourself on a regular basis, it would be wise to spend some of your time learning something or developing something that will be both fun and empowering, like to start a business from the comfort of home. The easiest and most economical way to do this is online.

The Internet solves many logistical considerations. Maybe you think the most direct and economical way is to just get a second job. It is not an easy life to leave one job and rush to the next job, often with no other break time in between. If you have ever had to do this routine, you will realize how much stress and unpaid time you spend commuting to and from home and job to job. This scenario could not be recommended other than for extreme, very temporary dire straits.

When you work at home you can still at least spend some quality time having dinner with your family between arriving home from your job and starting your work online. The atmosphere in your home is at least more welcoming and comfortable than a second job. You could actually rest a little. Even as much as a 15 minute ‘cat nap’ would do wonders for your efficiency if you could afford that much luxury for yourself – and you should.

So it is a good idea to think in terms of ‘what if’ and be prepared for all eventualities, while you hope and pray that they never come. Don’t worry, which does nothing to help; just focus on building a ‘fortress’ to protect yourself should the possibility of losing your income ever arise.

Home Business Boot Camp – Everybody Had to Start at the Beginning

Don’t let anything stand in your way no matter what. You will encounter obstacles in your thinking that are probably harder to overcome than those in the physical realm like time and money. If you are serious about starting a real business that actually succeeds down the line, you need to do plenty of ‘self-talk’ all along the way.

bring it!

Starting out, you will need to keep assuring yourself that ‘you CAN do it’. Somehow you have to acquire the discipline to make a serious commitment to yourself that you WILL ‘just do it’. When you don’t see results right away, you can’t allow yourself to become discouraged or skeptical. Either one is the death-knell of motivation which is one of the most important resources you have. Not to mention if you allow yourself to become skeptical, you will project that and people won’t trust you. If you don’t believe in yourself and/or the process, then why should they?

When you encounter new concepts and terminology, don’t be intimidated. Remember the little guy who said ‘there is no can’t’. Well, it’s true, if you want to succeed, there is no can’t. Being ‘new’ is never an excuse for why we ‘can’t’ do what is necessary. Being new is only the reason you need to learn ‘the ropes’. Everybody who knows anything had to learn how to do things and to realize certain truths. Being ‘new’ is not terminal. Everybody starts out in the beginning being new. We learn and we grow, and the farther we evolve in our experience the stronger and more ‘savvy’ we get.

Every day is another opportunity to learn something new. Don’t go into denial when you hear a strange word or acronym, or pretend you know what it means if you don’t. Look it up. You are on the Internet. It is a vast sea of information at your fingertips – and mostly free! Start taking notes as you go along and don’t leave a blank space in your mind that represents a word you didn’t understand, because it is likely you won’t follow the entire concept if you lose ‘the train of thought’ at any point. Starting a home business online does not have to be any more technical than you want it to be, but you really should understand the basics.

Start a list of things that are new to you. Look them up and write down what they mean. Go to a search engine like google.com and just type the word – You will get lots of links with different levels of definition. For in depth descriptions, you can go to Wikipedia.com – an online encyclopedia. Start a little collection of terms that you can refer to unless you have a ‘photographic’ memory and won’t forget anything.

For example, the acronym ‘FTP’ – it means file transfer protocol, and it is used to move (‘upload’) groups of files quickly from your PC to your host. A ‘host’? What is that? Host – a host server – where files and other applications ‘live’ that comprise a website. If you love details you can really build on this ‘database’ (index) you are creating for yourself. In this example you could search for ‘hosting account’ and come up with several advertisements for hosting companies – Just read through a couple to see what is involved in ‘hosting’. If you are planning to get one someday, jot down comparisons – what are the costs, what are the options that come with the ‘hosting account’?

Oh, and don’t get lost in all the information – you have no doubt heard ‘information is power’ – it’s true, but only if you do something with it – take action with what you learn. Don’t use learning as an excuse not to take action. Don’t feel like you don’t know enough (yet). Do what you can. Do it as well as you can. You will improve after you get some experience and learn some skills. Every day you will know more. You will see you are building yourself up at the same time you are building your business.
