How To Work At Home And Make Money In 2011


As the New Year has now arrived, millions of people are making resolutions about
money, health and more. For many people, one of those resolutions is to work at
home.
The problem with resolutions is that within weeks they’re forgotten. Sometimes
they just aren’t important enough to make happen, but most often I think people
fail because they don’t have a solid plan. Wishing isn’t enough to achieve your
goals. Vague ideas about how you’ll reach your goals don’t work either. Instead
you need a well-designed action plan and a commitment to follow it.
So what will it take to work at home in 2011? Here are my suggestions:
1) Add working at home into your daily activities. Get up earlier, stay up
later… make the time to do work-at-home related activities each day.
Work-at-home activities include doing a job search, posting to a blog, writing
an article to use in marketing. The key is to do something every day so that
working at home becomes a habit as regular as brushing your teeth.
2) Know what you’re going to do. Each day when you sit down to work on working
at home, know what activities need to be done. This means having a plan or a
to-do list. When I sat down today, I knew I needed to post jobs, write a blog
post, and outline a new work-at-home job course.
3) Make no excuses. The real difference between those who succeed and those who
don’t, are that the successful people don’t make excuses. They do what needs to
be done even when they’ve got no time, they’re broke, the kids are sick, the dog
runs away, the spouse is unsupportive, the economy tanks… and any other thing
that can happen. Everyone has challenges, but you can’t let them stop you from
achieving your goals.
4) Do it for a year. Achieving work-at-home success takes time. You won’t start
January 1st and be making $5000 a month by the end of the month (it’s possible,
but not likely). But if you work plan, within a year you should have significant
results. But only if you work on your goal regularly. Haphazard effort will give
haphazard results no matter how long you work on them. Commit to daily activity
for a year and you’ll see results.
5) Expand your knowledge. I’m an avid reader. At any one time I have several
books I’m reading on success, marketing and other topics that can help me grow
and make a profit. I recommend you do the same. Find books and courses that are
specific to your goals. Read or listen to inspirational materials. Check out
blogs and news that are related to your work-at-home idea. The more you know,
the easier and faster you can achieve your goals.
6) Tap into resources. There are tons of great resources you can use to educate
yourself, save time, and make money. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Find existing
tools, resources and information you can use to speed up the process.

Remember to stick to your plan and at least for the first year work as hard as you can, I am in my third year now and make a steady and decent income working from home online with little effort now.

I recommend reading this fantastic book that has a lot of information to get you started
