Create a Long Term Plan be a Work at Home Mom

The Key to Success  Starts with You.

So many of us make the mistake to  fire up the computer and start searching for a great opportunity to solve all our work at home aspirations. Unfortunately, making that mistake can just start you off down the wrong path.

In the long run, it really will pay off to resist the urge to jump on any opportunity that is billed as the greatest way to make money since sliced bread. You need to take a look at yourself first. It is important to identify your passions. The key to success is building a business that you can enjoy and grow. Many people don’t take the time to find a good fit, and then wonder why they don’t make money. Let’s face it, if you are not excited about your product of business, why should you customer be.

Taking this inward look is extremely important, and may be one of the more difficult steps in creating an income while working from home. We have all heard the old saying “If Momma Ain’t Happy, Nobody’s Happy”. Well, loving your work is directly related to your passions.

I would suggest that you start by writing down at least twenty five things you like. Get a notebook and make it your idea book. Next, examine each of those things, and brainstorm possible ways to make money with them. If you like biking, could you blog about biking and eventually earn money selling products or promoting others products and getting affiliate commission on sales? If you love to sew, maybe you could make costumes for the areas theater groups.

Spend the time to really work on this step, no cheating here. Twenty five is the minimum number, fifty is better. When you have your list of likes, start asking family and friends to help you brainstorm.

  • This reminds of the time when I first pursued freelancing. I admit it wasn't easy, but it was definitely worth it. A friendly reminder to those who are planning to jump into freelancing: before abandoning your regular work and throwing caution to the wind, make sure that you have sufficient savings to back you up, or a partner with a good regular job, and get your feet wet in freelancing first before jumping in. 🙂 Good luck everyone!
