Why do people want to work from home
Have you been thinking about working from home or do you wonder why do people want to work from home? The best answer anyone can give and it is the most common reason for both, it’s Freedom… It seems in today’s life, we are busier than we ever have been and there is never enough time for anything.
Why do people want to work from home?
Most jobs demand at least 8 hours of your day 5 days a week. Sadly that is light compared to those working two jobs or jobs with longer hours and more days of the week. With that kind of work schedule, doing the mundane task at home is hard to schedule in. If you include trying to spend time with a loved one or family, you just ran out of time.
I am a single full time dad, I have an automotive business and I do internet marketing. The garage life sucks up more time than I want it to. On top of work, I have cooking, cleaning, driving my kid around and trying to spend quality time with her. At the end of the day, there is no time for me. No doubt I am getting older and I would like to enjoy my life before checking out.
First Starting Out
When I first looked into internet marketing I was really skeptical. I thought it all was either a scam, MLM, selling people you know crap they don’t want or would be too complicated for me to do. With nearly 20 years of IT experience, I wasn’t too afraid of the technical side of things but more afraid of the marketing aspect.
I come to realize that persistence, consistency, dedication and believing in yourself is really what you have to have. In the beginning I was so unfocussed, as I had more irons in the fire than any normal person should have had. I had lived that way for so long, I was afraid to give it up. But in time I started focusing on one niche at a time and one project at a time and it started coming together.
Working from home can be really hard and not because of the work but being disciplined. I mean you are at home, watching the tube or sleeping might be tempting than sticking to your business. When discussing this with friends and others, they would say, “tell me again, why do people want to work from home”?
My statement to anyone that wants to do this but thinks this may be just too hard. “Keep you eye on the prize” Anyone can give up but there is regret, so which is better? I would rather try with regrets than to have never tried and live with that regret.
Other Reasons to Work At Home and an Inspiration
As mentioned, many are looking for a work at home opportunity but there are other reasons people look for an online income or home business. Working at home is ideal for those that are disabled in some form or another. Some of which can’t walk and have lost a certain amount of quality of life.
What inspired me are these people that are disabled or handicapped in some form or another, yet they will not give up from working and bettering their lives. It made me think of all that I have had going against me and then compare it these people. Seeing how they made themselves into success woke me up and realized I can do it too.
There are also people that have to stay at home. People at home with their children much like myself or those that have it even worse by having to stay home to take care of a sick loved one. Then you have those that have low immunity systems that staying home is much safer than being in an office full of people.
People that are retired have found running a business from home not only profitable but gives them purpose. This also includes elderly people that are not retired per say but are too old to get regular jobs and or just do not have the strength to get back into the workforce.
Even kids are making money online through blogging about games, doing YouTube videos and much more. So really anyone can make money online, you just have to have vision and determination.
Making Money Online
Make no mistake, internet marketing or just making money online is work and takes some investments. Many people think you just get online and put something out there and you will be rich. Once this doomed plan fails, they give up.
Making money online requires discipline and work. It does require some money but for those on a budget, you can do a lot for free and what cost do incur, is very little. The goal is to get some money coming in and then use that money to scale up.
So why do people want to work from home knowing that they are going to be taking on a real business? Aside from freedom, it can give anyone a sense of accomplishment to take an idea and turn it into a reality. The goal is to put yourself in financial freedom so that you may live a better life.
For anyone wanting to start working from home full time or part time, realize this is a job. It is work and in the beginning, you will put time and money into it just like you would with any business, that is if you plan for it to be successful.
Be Careful Out There
So do not fall into these scams and hype that claim you will be in 6 figures in a month or even 6 months. Can that be done, yes, but that is if you already have lots of experience accompanied with a lot of money to invest. Even if you plan on getting into high commission deals, you will want to start small and at least learn how all this works before going all out.
