    Hi Barrie, A lot of what you say is just as true for an offline business, but the one thing that I think is most difficult when working from home is making sure you actually work! I’ve read so many accounts of people either getting distracted simply because they’re at home and can achieve a host of other home related tasks, to people being constantly disturbed by neighbours and friends because they know they are at home. I do believe you can make money working from home, indeed.

    Enjoy the journey!

      Yes, Mandy. Distraction can be a killer!

    Hi Barrie,
    Choosing a home business opportunity it must match your personality and what you prefer doing.
    Not everyone can manage a home business. It does take a lot of self motivation.

    Hi Barry,
    All great ideas. But one thing is needed where many fall SHORT – committment and being willing to do the boring stuff.It’s challenging to be your own boss, but we;; worth it .. 🙂

    Barrie,

    Yes, one can make a lot of money with a home business but many of us don’t have the staying power or the personality to pull it off. It requires a certain amount of aggression and determination. You have to make those phone calls, follow up with prospective buyers, send out those emails, make those social media posts, study about your company and the products, answer questions, advertise, etc., etc.

    Yes, you can make some good money but i would not recommend quitting your day job to do a home business full time until it starts to bring you more money than your day job. We need to pay bills and we need to have enough money for basics. Without that, it is hard to concentrate and do all the things you need to do to succeed in your home business.

    But so many people have thrived over time. Those who commit to the process and keep taking steps and just keep on doing it, have a great chance of finally having success.

    Warmly,
    Dr. erica

    Hi Barrie,

    I think the most important thing is to choose a business to match your personality. There’s no way I’m going to be prospecting on the phone, so online works just fine for me. I probably won’t get as rich as more voluble marketers, but that’s OK with me.

    Also, people should match the time they have available to their ambitions, otherwise stress will follow. my online business is part-time, so my offline business has to come first – because, currently, that’s what’s paying the bills!

    Finally – match your skills. producing marketing materials doesn’t come easily to me, so I prefer a ready-made business, otherwise I will be spending forever trying to produce marketing materials instead of helping my team.

    Very helpful post of points to consider when starting a business.

    after trying various mlm opportunities i decided they weren’t for me. Instead I stick to tried and trusted affiliate products and recently a couple of online stores. I’m also working on developing my own digital products (Not ebooks). It’s important not to give up and to keep on learning.

    I am trying to start as well, i found it very difficult to find a way to learn how to build your page to sell your own products (in my case, guides), i already did the difficult part (writing them), the problem is that i don’t know how to be paid, any advice?

    Hi Barrie,
    Not all businesses can take you towards financial freedom. When we surveyed a group of start-up entrepreneurs in one of our events, we found that many entrepreneurs had traded a job for a business model that still relied on an hours-for-dollars work. They had not invested in home business ideas that would achieve financial independence over a period of time.Thanks for sharing this amazing article.

    Hi Barrie thanks for sharing this post. I’ve found the using recurring commission affiliate products wOrks Well if you can get your marketing right. It’s a long term thing for sure an online business but if you’ve got the wIll to keep going it’s worth all the Effort for the freedom it can give you.

    IT IS DIFFICULT TO RUN A BUSINESS FROM HOME AND IT TAKES EVERYTHING YOU HAVE. IT IS WORTH IT ONCE THE MONEY STARTS COMING IN. YOU JUST HAVE TO GET PAST THE DOUBT AND HURDLES.
