There is always the misconception that working from home requires some type of multilevel marketing business or that is it. With the thousands of scams on the internet, you can't blame anyone for being skeptical.
First, I am not here to tell about how legit working from home on the internet is. We are here to talk about the reasons as to why you're not ready to quit your current job and work from home, like other people are doing.
Secondly, working from home does not only deal with MLM. I was once involved with a couple of MLM businesses before and I can tell you that I am not a big fan of them.
However, it was the gateway (along with other scams) that led me to looking for a real opportunity that I could use from home.
But what I did to do this, has taught me a valuable lesson and I would like to share it with you. Here are several reasons as to why you're not ready to quit your job and take on the work from home lifestyle.
1.) You don't Have a Plan
Without one of these, you can expect to experience some of the hardest times in your life. I went extreme and quit my job to take on the internet full-time.
It was not the best idea at the time, but I wouldn't change anything. Being that I know what to expect (now), I want to tell you that you need to plan things out or you will probably get into debt just like I did.
Being that you can get your business started online completely part-time, there is no reason that you should be taking the same path I took.
Get the right training and guidance and you can expect to be setup for failure. Fall or some type of get rich quick scheme and expect to remain at that job for a very, very long time.
2.) You Don't Have the Right Mindset
Just like anything else in life, you have to believe in what you're doing. If you are already doubting yourself from the get got, you have already failed.
Once I found out how money was really made online I knew I could do it. Quitting my job was the start of me having the right mindset.
I absolutely, positively knew that I was going to make it in the online world, so I had no problem quitting the job that I invested over 5 years in.
I'd say about 99% of the people that knew me thought I was crazy. The other 1% was just the people I knew that were already experiencing success in their life. The difference between us and them, is our mindset.
3.) You Don't Know What's Out There
For the most part, there are nothing but scams that claim to show you how to make money on the internet. I have ben scammed, time and time again, but I didn't let that stop me.
I continued my hunt for a legitimate way to make money online, until I found something that actually worked.
The difference between the one legit program that I found and all the other scams, was the fact that this one didn't show you about how fat their bank accounts were or some fancy car.
Their main focus was building your own website and attracting visitors who will in turn be the ones paying you (without even knowing it).
Another thing that made this the absolute best way to make money from home was the fact that there was no recruiting involved. You sell products, not recruit people. That's how a real business is ran.
4.) You Don't Have Time to Waste
Running a work from home business is not going to happen overnight. It requires a building process and won't show you any type of instant results.
It will take about 6 months to build out a site and start making money, so if you don't have the patience for anything, then you know this is not for you.
The one thing you need to understand is that although it doesn't happen instantly, it's the end result that I and every other successful online marketer do it for.
If 6 months is too much time for you, then you really have no business doing business in the first place. All businesses take time to build and it isn't any different in the online world.
5.) You're Not Cutout For it
I love this one. There are just too many people that tell me the online world is not for them. If you knew the type of background I have, you will know that you can do it.
Don't be thinking that I'm some type of criminal either, but I am just not the brightest of my class. I did an extra year in high school and I joined the military. Is that the best resume or what?
Without a college degree, you know I didn't have the pick of the litter. There was one thing I wasn't going to do and that was settling.
I would not settle for the 9-5 that although I did love, didn't pay enough. I didn't settle for the military, even if I invested 12 years of my life to it. Call me crazy, but I wouldn't do it any other way.
Anyone Can Work From Home, but Just Remember That it is Still a Job
Just because we set our own hours and work at odd times of the day doesn't mean we don't do anything. I still put in the time that is needed to go with my lifestyle so don't think I'm just at home watching TV.
My kids and my wife understand that I have a job to do, even if I work from home. They know that if dad doesn't work, we don't play.
This is not the easiest job in the world, but I can promise you that it is one of the most rewarding out there.
I mean, you can't complain when you're not having to impress your boss to get a raise or when you're sitting behind your desk in your boxers.
If you think you have what it takes to work from home, I would love to hear about it. I am willing to work with some of you, just to get you to where you want to be in life.
Get in touch and I will be more than happy to help you become another success story online. You can do this too, so let's get you started!
