seeking an online job, it is important to keep in mind that get rich
fast schemes are not the way to go simply because they are a fairy
tale. Although many people would love to believe they exist,
unfortunately they don't. Anything you choose to do from home will
take work, consistency and time. That is the reality. So if you're
not willing to put in the effort, you might as well forget about
looking for anything to do from home.If you're a beginner and don't
have any experience, there are some easier routes you can take. Such
as jobs that don't require you to have a product or a website.
Are A Few Ideas Of What You Could Look Into For Extra Money
1.Online surveys: Taking surveys has become extremely popular. Although
you won't make a lot of money with this or replace your day job, you
could make enough to pay an extra bill or two. Market research is a
big business and they're always on the lookout for consumer opinions.
Become A Secret Shopper: Mystery shopping has become a well liked
occupation. Again, you won't be able to replace your day job doing
this, but it is a means of extra money, free food or free gifts.
Sometimes you can get pretty cool gifts like expensive beauty
products.That is, of course depending on what type of secret shopping
you do. This job simply entails sort of spying on a business and see
how things are being run from a customers point of view. You get paid
for your report on the company you were directed to shop for.
3.Become An Affiliate: This one has great potential of really paying
the bills. You basically get paid to promote online businesses and
their products. This one is commission-based, (usually 50-75%.) You
have the choice to have your own website for this or not but either
way, if done properly you can make a nice living doing this. You
will, however, need to either do a lot of research to learn the trade
or join a training program to really perfect your craft.
key to online success is education. You don't have to be a genius or
even start out with experience. As long as you're willing to learn
and put in the time. You could really find something long term to
depend on for extra money or even a full time income online.

people tell me they would love to work from home but don't think they
have the discipline. They have visions of getting distracted on
Facebook, running errands all day or spending time cooking, cleaning
or gardening instead of working. And some of my clients who are
stay-at-home moms often have a difficult time adjusting to the home
business world because they already have a full plate. They can't
figure out how to squeeze in time for work.
me, the daily life of working from home is more appealing than
challenging. I think it's because I've been doing it for 18 years and
have worked out a few systems to ensure things go smoothly. The
Christian business owners and mom entrepreneurs I work with have
adopted these strategies and they're starting to notice big results!
They're more productive and efficient. They have more passion for
their business. And - most importantly - they are able to be more
fully present at home and at work.
to learn our secrets? Here are some of my favorite tips for balancing
family and a home business.
Management and Productivity Tips for Home Based Business Owners
Create a Schedule. If you're a creative mom, you may have an aversion
to schedules and deadlines. But do yourself a favor and try it for a
week. Set aside a specific time slot for your business instead of
working only when you feel inspired, or if you have the energy, or
while the kids are napping.
if you can only devote an hour a day to your business, it's important
to know exactly when that hour is and what you intend to do with it.
You can accomplish a great deal in 60 minutes of focused work. But if
you try to steal five minutes here and ten minutes there, you'll
likely find yourself stuck in the same place for weeks.
Establish Boundaries. This is where most home based business owners
struggle. They flow back and forth from mom to entrepreneur all day,
never sure which role they should be playing. You know what I'm
talking about - you're working on a project and your child wants you
to play a game of Go Fish, so you try to do both at the same time.
Or, you make empty promises that Mommy will play the game in ten more
you set boundaries, like designated work space and specific office
hours, it gives you the freedom to concentrate fully on the task at
hand - whether at work or play. But you have to honor those
boundaries - by not taking personal calls or answering personal
emails while you are working, and by putting your phone out of reach
when it's time to be with your children. Your family will appreciate
the boundaries- they'll learn to recognize when Mommy is working and
when she is available, rather than constantly having to compete for
Find Reliable Childcare. I remember when my oldest son was a baby and
I was working from home on a writing assignment for a large law firm.
I had it planned out perfectly. I would have two hours a day to write
- during naptime. All of a sudden, my perfect napper decided not to
sleep every afternoon. So after weeks of frustration and misplaced
anger (sorry, Andrew!), I ended up writing while my son watched TV -
a decision I still regret.
if your children are not yet in school, and you have a home based
business, find a consistent and reliable form of childcare - even if
it means swapping playdates with a friend.
Let Go of Something. Chances are you were a busy mom even before you
started your business. Or maybe you were a busy entrepreneur before
you became a mom. Either way, when you add a new responsibility,
you've got to let go of something else. Nobody is going to do this
for you. You have to be the one to reprioritize and cut back on the
activities and obligations that no longer seem to fit.
Don't Compromise Sleep. Remember when your baby was born and the
doctor told you to be sure to take naps whenever the baby slept? Of
course you were thinking of all the dirty laundry that need to be
washed and the fact that you hadn't taken a shower all day. But if
you were smart, you took a nap. Because you knew that a cranky Mommy
is no good to anyone.
same thing holds true now. If you're burning the midnight oil because
you can only work on your business while the kids are asleep, stop
right now. The lack of sleep will catch up with you and you'll find
yourself sick and unhappy. I can tell you from experience - it isn't
worth it. You'll be a much better mompreneur if you are sleeping
Hold a Weekly Planning Meeting. Ever have one of those days when you
were busy all day but you have no idea what you did? This happens
when we are not clear on our priorities. We bounce from one thing to
the next without completing anything. And we get distracted on a
seemingly worthwhile task (like cleaning out the fridge) only to
avoid doing what really needs to be done (like completing a project
for a client).
solution? A weekly planning meeting - one of the best productivity
tips for mompreneurs. Take 30 minutes at the beginning of the week to
establish your top priorities for the week. This is not about writing
a "to do" list. This is a chance for you to focus on your
goals for your business, your family and even yourself. Make a list
of all the recurring activities you do - such as marketing, content
creation, phone calls, errands, meal preparation, house cleaning,
errands, carpools, paying bills, etc. Then go through the list each
week and identify your goals and tasks for the week so you can
schedule them on the calendar.
Get Out of the House. This is difficult for many moms with small
children. After all, one of the reasons we choose a home business is
because we want to be home with our families. But when you are
running a business in a vacuum, it can get a bit lonely.
of my mentors says, "An hour in front of an audience is worth
six months behind the desk." While there is a lot of connecting
that begins online, the real relationships are still developing in
person. So make it a part of your regular schedule to attend local
networking meetings, conferences or events where you can meet
clients, colleagues and mentors to support you on your journey. Not
only will you make new friends, but the fresh air and change of
scenery will be good for you!

are several reasons why many people fail to earn reasonable sums of
money from their various online businesses. These reasons range from
simple things like attitude to complex technicalities.
this article, I will discuss the common reasons why many people fail
to earn money from internet marketing, Multilevel marketing,
affiliate marketing and any business for that matter. Knowledge of
the possible causes of failure will help the novice networker know
what to avoid to prevent failure. We are all prone to these
shortcomings and need to examine the cause of our failure and retrace
our footsteps in the right direction.
Inability to focus on one thing: Many online marketers do not have
focus. They set out to achieve one thing and along the line, because
of the many opportunities that abound on the internet, try to do many
things at the same time. This is surely a recipe for disaster. You
have to do one thing, and stick with it; succeed in it before you
move on to the next. That way, you devote all your time and effort to
the thing that matters, and achieve good results.
Joining the wrong program: Some choose the wrong program. It is
usually better to join an Multilevel marketing opportunity which
offers some residual income in the long run. Some people join
affiliate programs which offers a one-time commission and after that,
nothing else comes in.
Wrong concept of what network marketing is all about: Many marketers
join the business with high expectations of instant riches. They have
false expectations due to the overhyped advertisements they are
gullible enough to believe. They expect to do no work, and as a
result, get frustrated when they see the amount of work needed to
achieve success, and subsequently give up.
Lack of consistency and inability to see projects through: Many
people don't have the required patience it takes to see projects
through. They get impatient when they don't see instant results. They
are not consistent with their goals and keep jumping from one
"wonderful" program to the next, achieving very little.
Wrong Sponsors: People fail because they have no competent sponsor to
guide them through the rudiments of the business. Find a mentor who
is committed to you if your sponsor is not doing his/her work.
Lack of self-development: People come into online businesses knowing
next to nothing about the business, and still expect to succeed. You
need to educate and develop yourself in your line of business in
order to succeed. You need to become an expert in your line of
Lack of planning: There's a saying that says, "If you fail to
plan, you plan to fail". Some people only have a vague idea of
what they want to do to succeed. And of course, they fail. In order
to succeed in your business, draw up a daily schedule, itemize the
things you want to achieve and stick to the plan.
if you are a new network marketer, take a serious look at the above
points and make sure you don't repeat the mistakes of others.
Persevere in your business, and success will be yours.
