Work from Home
by J. Kenneth Ezra
My previous article Work from Home: Real Money Advantages explained some ways
you actually save money and make more money from home. Included were just
a few non-money advantages. But with this blessing comes responsibility.
Yes, I said it, responsibility. This comes with a burden of
production and action. Most capitalistic countries require some kind of
production in return for something of value. When you are on your own,
working from home these actions and production are left solely on you.
You must do these actions in your own way. They are required in order to
work from home. They entail possibly hundreds of smaller tasks
and steps to complete. They almost never go away and they are always there
whether you like or not.
1. Self Starting Accountability. These means you must set a schedule, do
your next task and keep track of your progress. This is so important. I
keep an action journal and review it regularly. No one, I mean No one is
going to do it for you. That's right, you'll go down with the ship and no one
will say a word.
2. Productive, organized work area. Mine, has two desks, two phones, TV
and great filing system. It's quiet when needed and out of the way.
I have two desks. One desk is closer to the home action but used mainly
for my researching, other computer creative aspects and writing. The other
is used for communications, clearing my inbox paperwork, paying the bills,
analyzing financial statements etc.
3. Your product. This can be a service or real tangible goods exchanged
for money or service or other goods. This requires research.
This requires a self evaluation on your worth. This requires
some kind of system to sell it and deliver it.
4. Continuing education. When you work for yourself, you actually can't
afford to be without it. The newest technologies. The newest
systems. The best strategies. As you seek information and current
knowledge you will seek industry expert professional opinions on the
marketplace, future and challenges. This keeps you ahead and profitable.
5. Planning, execution and strategy. Hopefully, number one on this list
can help the execution because you'll have a method of accountability in place.
Planning entails realistic short term and long term goals. As well as,
"to-do lists". Strategies can be researched (see number four above) and
purchased. They can be self-formulated with enough knowledge but
plenty of information is available to self-starters wanting to do the required
6. Motivation. You must be motivated. This requires actions to keep
you motivated. Reminders to yourself about WHY you are doing this.
This isn't always money. In fact, some of the non- money reasons for
working from home can be used as motivators. Actually, anything can be used for
motivation. Big, small, bigger, smaller, too fat, too thin, more money,
more love, more romance, more extravagance, less complicated, more complex, her
or him, good, or bad. All can be applied to "prod" yourself into action.
Even prisoners are motivated to dig their way out of jail even it's against the
law. But that motivation to "get out" keeps them planning, scheduling,
strategizing, and executing the dig.
Believe it or not the above six required actions anyone with a will can apply to
success. It is true there are obstacles hidden within all the steps.
There are hundreds of smaller actions within each. Some can be a big pain
in the neck. But they must be completed as part of the whole in order to
keep moving on, producing, delivering and making money all in the comfort of
I'm going on my eighth year working from home. As I get good information,
good education and apply solid principles I see great results.
I'm running an experiment on the newest information marketing website turnkey
system. The system advertised the typical promises: "help you make
money from home with very little money, time and offers plenty of solutions that
can cover most of your knowledge deficiencies." A current example to show
anyone who is interested about home based turnkey systems: view an experiment
system. See the bank statements to view how profitable or not so
