Start Work At Home

By Niki Jackson

So you have an idea for a home based business you would really like to try but you are scared!
You husband/partner doesn’t think you can make money working from home and wants you to go out and get a regular job to pay the bills.

In 2004 I was in exactly this position, I had a dream that I really wanted to pursue and I was tired of being treated badly by employers who didn’t respect me or the work I did for them.
I told my husband I wanted to work from home; I wanted to have my own web site selling my own creations. His reaction was very unsupportive and I wondered if I could really do this.

My desire was so strong to pursue this dream that I decided I was going to do it!
Here are my top tips on how you can beat the fear and do it anyway:

Know your business.
If you are going to be working from home you need to decide what it is you want to do. Do you want to sell your own creations? Do you want to sell other people’s creations? Do you want to work in direct sales?
There are many options on ways to work from home, you can search the internet for ideas, but be aware of ‘paying to work scams’.

Research.
Ok, so you have decided what business you want to go with, now you need to do your research to find out if it is profitable.
Look on the internet and find others, who are your competition, what are they selling? what prices are they charging?
You can download a fantastic tool called the Alexa Bar, this will help you get information about traffic and site efficiency of your competitors.

Make a start
So you have got all the information you need to start your business, you know that the business you have chosen is going to be profitable for you, now you need to make a start!
You might be feeling a little nervous, anxious at the prospect of finally doing it, but rest assured it is going to be so worth it!
Make a check list of all the things you need to do to get your business going and then work on them one at a time so you don’t feel overwhelmed.

Get Support!
I cannot recommend this tip enough! Your family are telling you they think you can’t make it but you know you can. You will need support to keep you going with your dream.
There are plenty of places to gain support throughout your journey as a Home Based Business Woman. Check out related subject forums and groups for your business, you can find these by doing a search on Google.com .

Learning
Finally, learning! It is one of the most important things when working from home or any type of business. The business world is constantly changing and new techniques, trends and ways of working are continually updating so you need to be right up there learning these. Knowing the new stuff is going to get you more and more business and recognised as an expert in your field!

I hope these tips have been a help to you in making your decision to Work from Home.
