Easy To Work At Home?

Don't let them fool you.

Working at home does have it's advantages like no dress code, shoot you can work in your jamies if you want( if you can stand yourself),
no gas to drive back and forth, set your own hours(thats only to a point) you still have to work.

Working at home takes a lot of dedication, day in and day out.

Relaxing on the beach? Well... you have to build a good size business first and that takes time! And Money for advertising!

Be Dedicated! Spend a lot of time posting ads, talking to multiple people, figuring out your scripts if you are writing or posting ads, reading contracts, writing contracts, building webpages, building mailing lists and on and on.

Now, I am not trying to discourage anyone. If that is your goal Fabulous! I just want you to know you can not just click a few buttons and earn a good income.

Don't let anyone fool you, it's Still Work! Some days a Lot of Work! Be Prepared!

If you grow your business so you are making a Lot of money, then you might need to hire an assistant to help you keep up because you will be very busy.

Have a Fabulous Day! and Keep Smiling! <:)

Be Constant, Be Determined!

If you decide you are going to work at home you must be determined.
Just like a regular outside the home JOB you have to stay with it.
If you don't you won't have any income.

The best thing you can do for you is set yourself regular hours that you work.
Make a schedule! Stick To It!
Don't let anything distract you!

We all have those little things that come up in our day that can distract us from our set goals.
If something takes you away from your work hours one day, just make up the time as soon as you can.
Your income depends on it.
Don't give up finding what works for you.

It took me 6 months to find a job after I started looking for one.
If you are blogging and joining groups or anything else you do you still have to put in the time.
You can't just post and expect people to find you.
Some will, yes, but determined in giving Yourself Your Time to Earn!

Headsets!

There are some great Headsets on the market.
If you are listening to music, working on something you need to listen to for work, doing a customer service job and number of other things you do want to make sure you have a good one.

They are also very handy if you have someone in your home that likes to listen to music but no one else wants to hear.

There are headsets that go over your head for listening with both ears. They are make them that cover only one ear. Some are even wireless.

If you work a customer service job I suggest you do not use a wireless one. You need to hear everything that is being said and there seems to be a bit of a delay sometimes.
For the you would be best to get one that just plugs into the USB port of your PC.

They range greatly in price. You can find these in the Online Mall as well, get your rebate!

Save Money Doing Your Own PC Maintenance!

Computer repair companies will charge you $75 to $130 to do the same things you can do at home, if you know how.
First Turn ON your Windows Firewall!
Keep yourself SAFE form Hackers!

What you need to do is Clear your cache every night before you turn off your PC for the night.
Go into Internet options click Delete files, delete History and any thing else you want to remove.
The fewer things you have in there the better your PC will run.
Do that in the middle of the day if you use your PC a lot, then restart your PC.
Also do that at night before you turn off your PC for the night.
Never leave your PC on all night, if you do that slows it down.

Also do a defrag at least once a month, once a week is what i have mine set to.
Find the file that says: Defragmentor.
I have it set to do that automatically.
Defrag Drive C is especially important.

Also get a good virus and spyware program. You can not live without theses.
I highly suggest going over to: Download.com and get the AVG Virus Program and the Ad-Aware spyware program.
Run those every night before you turn off your PC for the night.
Doing just those few things will ensure your PC will work much better and you will save a lot on PC repairs.

What Kind Of Computer Should I Buy?

People ask me this all the time.

That depends on what kind of job you are doing.
The best suggestion I can give you is buy a new one.
Computers have changed a lot.
If you have an XP hey use it, but Microsoft will not be letting you get any updates for your
programs shortly and we all want to stay updated on the programs we use everyday.
I just purchased a new computer.
It's a Vista. I was afraid of using Vista because others had told me they did not like it and they could not finds things on it.
Let me tell you I love it!
It took me several days to get used to where to find things but its worth it.
If you really confused get out your Manual, that explains it all.

There are Computers in the Mall also.
Go get your mall and get a rebate it on a new one!

You Have to be Comfortable!

I still talk to people that sit in table chairs, wooden and metal, all day and they are trying to work. One of the first things you really want to do is purchase yourself a comfortable desk chair! It makes all the difference! You end up with a back ache, a neck ache, sore legs, tired arms and definitely not good height to work at your computer with.

I bought a desk chair at a garage sale and used that for several years. That was almost as big a mistake as the people that use their kitchen chairs. It still had a little 'Cush' when i bought it and it was cheap, sometimes cheap if what you have to do, but I soon found out that when someone else squishes all the 'Cush' with their 'Tush' it is not a very comfy place for you. I got to the point where I was was so tired of sitting in that chair I would get down on my knees and work. That would last for a short time then I would sit in that 'Cush Gone' chair again.

It makes all the difference when you are comfortable. Some office supplies have great chairs at very affordable prices. I suggest you invest a little money in one that is 'Cushy'.

The chair I purchased was a little over $100, Italian leather with lots of 'Cush' and its so big I can even move around in it for different positions. It swivels, the back moves down and I can tell you What a Difference. My attitude has improved and I can sit here forever. I love working at home and being comfortable makes it even better!

If you need an Office chair come on over to MyPowerMall.com/Biz/Mall/2090 Get yourself that Comfy chair and get a rebate on it also.
Remember to get your rebate you have to get your own personal mall or your own business mall. They are both free, whichever you decide to get.

Sign On The Door!

When I started working at home it was so difficult to make sure people knew that I could not be interrupted. They would bang on my literally Bang on my door if I did not answer at the first knock.

I started out working on the telephone and when you are working on the phone you simply can not have noise. The funny thing was that the solicitors were the most polite! It was my friends and family that were not! No matter how many times I told them they continued to bang on my door, loudly I might add (so I would hear they said). They would call me all the time as well.

Excuse me... I love you but... I have a job. I don't bother you at your job running down to your office all day and banging on your cubicle and yelling until you pay attention to me! I don't call you all day long at Your office. What would you do if I did? What would your Boss do if I did? Now think about that. I am doing what I do to earn an income as well.

I finally put a Big Note on my front door. It said: "Working, Do Not Disturb". Funny thing, the solicitors stopped knocking, but my family did not!

After I finally got Very upset with them they seemed to understand, OK either you leave me alone so I can earn a living too or I'm going to be eating at your house, Every Night! and How would you like a Permanent house guest!?!

I finally gave them my schedule and insisted they do not bother me between these hours. Do not bang on my door and do not call me during those times. If you want to talk, a question, a short sentence, Email me. They finally got it. Now they know that for 60 seconds they have my attention in an email.

Set your limits as to what you want. Don't change your mind once you have decided. Let them know and stand your ground. It Is Most Definitely Worth It!

You Need An Area To Work!

If you are planning to work at home you need an office are. A place that is all your own. Some type of jobs you will find on the Internet you have to have absolutely no background noise at all.

For that type of job you will need an area you can be in by yourself with no children running all around, no dogs barking and your significant other not insisting on watching the TV or playing music when you are trying to work.

Possibly use a bedroom you can fit a desk in, maybe you have an attic area you can convert, possibly a basement area or a garage. Wherever it is if you can make it just Your Place that is the best solution.

My son and his friends would always sit at my computer whenever they could sneak there and decide to change my settings so they could play games, music, search the web, whatever stuck their fancy at the time. When I would go to work - guess what? I would have to change all my settings back so that I could do my job.

Let me tell you that was so much wasted time and a lot of Aggravation! If you possibly can get your own computer and own workspace, it will make a big difference in your productivity!

If You Are Working at Home You Must Have Health Insurance

This is very important! Some people overlook the fact that you can fall and break a bone, we all do need dental coverage, we all do get sick, that is a fact of life! A friend of mine can help you with that.

She has insurance starting at $14.95 a month per person, and $20 a month per family.

Go on over to the site listed on the right side on this blog, click the link and scroll down the page. As of today, August 15th if you sign up to try it for just 1 month you will receive a $300 Gas Card! Right now we can all use that! Have a look!

Welcome One and All

Hi Everyone!
Thank you for coming to visit. Let me know you have been here.

I live just south of Seattle. I wish you were all my neighbors so we could visit, but since that not possible we can visit here. I Love the Internet. Such a great place to make friends!

I went through a horid divorce a few years ago and had to start all over again. My business closed at the same time my divorce was final and my youngest son moved out about the same time leaving me all alone.

With all those things happening in my life at the same time it was very difficult to cope for awhile. I had to totally start over.

When my business closed I had no income so I started looking all over for a job or something I could do to create an income to support myself. I am sure that some of you have been in similar situations. I had to sell my condo, my furniture, my cars and everything I owned just to survive.

It's been a long struggle but.... I have a good story to tell now. I made it! With God on my side nothing can take away what I have learned in just these few years. I now have a good steady income working a full time job at home. Start with what is in front of you. Do what you now how to do and look for ways to move forward in your life and look for your next your job opportunity.

I have my own apartment and an SUV I just love. I am looking towards the future now with Bright Expectations.

YOU -
Never, Never, Never give up. I can testify with God on your side, praying, tithing and hard work YOU can get where you want to go. Keep looking ahead with Hope in Your Heart and

Never, Never, Never Quit! AND Never Stop Tithing. What is Tithing you ask? That is Giving Away at least 10% of your income. This on 1 of the Secrets of have more money. It Works!


God's Promises are True! Ask and YOU Shall Receive, Seek and Ye Shall Find, Knock and the Door Will Be Opened! Do Unto Others What You Would Have Them Do Unto You! It's the Law of Reciprocity! Do Good & Good will Come to YOU!

Keep On, Keep On..... Days Do Get Brighter! No matter what you are going through.

Over these next weeks, months, years I will be sharing with you what works to to create an income at home. Check back, keep reading, you might find just The Perfect Niche for you!
