Work at Home – Know What it Takes

by: Juan Mendez
You know you’ve got a sweet cushy job when you’re making lots of money and not working. Not having to report to a boss, no punching in at the time clock, what can be better right? Does this sound like your kind of job? I’m willing to bet on it. Of course it’s not all bells and whistles, to get to this point you have to put in some work.
No ones going to hand you a magic potion or software and puff you’re set for life, it not that easy but its easy enough. So easy in fact that all you need is a few hours a day and you will be well on your way. In some cases you don’t even need money or a web site.
When people ask me what I do, it’s not always easy to answer. Do you want the long version or the short version I ask? When I get asked how many hours I work, sometimes I say 2-3 hours a day and sometimes I say 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Both answers are the truth, depending on my mood. There is of course the inevitable question of how much money I make. Here is where I just smile and say, “you mean since I’ve been here talking to you?”
So you want to run your own home business, well as you can imagine being your own boss takes discipline. There is no one looking over your shoulder making sure you get the job done but this is both a blessing and a curse. Without discipline you’re doomed to failure. Its great setting my own schedule, but I’ve got a job to do and there’s no one else who’s going to do it for me. The great thing is when you see the fruits of your labor coming in you will want to work more at it than you think. Money is the great motivator and what’s better; working eight hours for your boss or working ten hours for you.
So what do I do? The really short version; I do Internet Marketing. The search engines are my greatest love, it’s a win-win situation. People come to the Internet and my website with needs, my job is to help them find what they want. I’ve had my share of all-nighters in the beginning and still do, you will also. Not because you have to, but because you’ll want to. Simply because in the not so distant future while you sleep at night or you’re off on that great vacation, your computer will still be at work making you money. Now tell me that isn’t a sweet deal.
