It sounds glorious and it really is. To be able to avoid those unpleasant parts of your day like getting up to a blaring alarm clock, getting ready for work on the fly, flying out the door to be stuck in traffic. The list goes on!
You may imagine you wouldn’t know what to do to earn an income from home. However if you have been thinking about this for a while you may have grown a thinking cap and have lots of ideas as to what you might do. It may start out very small, part-time and grow into something really substantial eventually.
The key is to get started. Make some lists about what you would enjoy, maybe based around a hobby or interest that you always wanted to spend more time doing. Let’s use an example like golf. You could start real small with setting up a blog.
Start writing about things that are happening – news about (famous) golfers, schedules of golf tournaments happening in the near future. Build a following of readers by being very helpful with driving directions, maps. etc.
Then you can start to monetize your blog by adding some ads for various golf related equipment. Find out where to get discounts for clubs, bags, shoes, clothes, etc. Create some simple order forms and build a profit into the cost. Use your digital camera to build images. Or simplest yet use a site like e-Bay to do your transactions.
Figure out shipping materials. Or you may also wish to do this as a ‘drop-ship’ endeavor (as with e-Bay) where you merely process the orders and then notify the company to ship something to a certain address. This would work easiest if they were an ‘affiliate program’ and had your profit already built into their structure.
So you just start out by having a little fun online – not to call it in your ‘spare’ time because it really can be productive time used wisely to build a real business. You can do this same plan with any number of hobbies or interests. If you are serious and engaged at least a few hours a week someday you can get all your ducks in a row and have a source of income from your home.
