Everyone has SOMETHING about them that is unique. Think about your life and relationships. What is special about you that made your spouse/partner/friends want to be with you? Can you expand on that? Maybe you’ve been told that you have a beautiful smile or that you are funny or that you have a knack for making people feel comfortable around you. List a few nice things that people have said about you in the past.
Go ahead…I’ll wait here…
OK, now that you’ve done that, is there a way you can use those good qualities in your business? If you have been told you are funny, maybe you can go on facebook or twitter and make some funny (NOT OFF COLOR) comments on other’s status. Or you could post some of your own jokes.
If you’ve been told you have a great smile, have someone take some smiling pics of you and post them on facebook, twitter, etc… People love to do business with smiling, approachable people.
So, what is a uniqueness about you that you can build on?
It’s Monday again. I get to see all of my facebook and twitter friends complain (starting Sunday nights) that today is Monday and they have to go back to work. I can’t imagine going to a job anymore. I have been blessed to work from home while my husband has needed me due to health issues. I’ve been blessed to work from home while my children were growing up so I could homeschool them and be here for them when they needed me. I’ve been blessed to be able to sleep until I wake up on Monday mornings (and every other morning for that matter).
Don’t get me wrong…it has NOT always been easy and my family has struggles just like any other family. Working from home is NOT an answer for all of your problems. It is not right for everyone either. It is, however, a great way for you to alleviate some of the financial burden and a way to control your own future.
Many companies are even finding that they get more productivity in less time when they allow their employees to telecommute. Why? Because when you are paid based on productivity instead of hours you go to a physical building,, you tend to get more done in less time.
I will caution you…the time to start making money from home is NOT after you lose a job and have no income. You need to get things in place while you still have a job and transition into working from home. Wondering what you can do to make money from home?
