Why do so many people want to work from home and what is it that inspires so many to follow this avenue of earning an income? These are questions that I asked myself also when I first considered Home Based Business and contemplated possibility of joining this growing community of people.
From my experience having been involved in working from home on and off for 8 years, I have found 2 main reasons.
Firstly, there is financial aspect. People want to earn greater incomes and be rewarded appropriately for effort they put into their chosen profession. Many people are not rewarded properly for their work output and when comparing themselves to output of others, are disillussioned and depressed about whole matter.
Secondly there is time aspect. Most people seem to have to commit most of their life to an occupation that they really don't like and certainly don't enjoy. Time is spent travelling to and from work, especially in larger cities, way beyond what anybody would reasonably expect to do. More is being demanded from employees today in time that you are at work, to point where you get home and go to bed through exhaustion.
You could summarise this by saying people basically want financial freedom to devote more time to families and to things they would like to do more often. A Better Lifestyle.
These are very real and great desires, but I have learned that working from home brings rewards way beyond anything I ever thought possible!!
Life really is about relationships, with your God, with families and with those you meet on a day to day basis. Without relationships, of any sort, you will lead a very boring and depressing life. With home based business comes added bonus of meeting many different people, in many different circumstances, in ways that really bless you and sometimes infuriate you!!!
You must learn and appreciate quickly that people are your greatest assett in life and indeed in Home Based Business also. Without day to day contact with others, your business will not grow. You may think that you can work internet and grow a home based business devoid of contact with people, but at end of day, who is pushing mouse and hitting keys on keyboards? You are still working with people. You still need to develop relationships with those whom you choose to work with. Without genuine relationships, your business will fail.
Can I suggest to you that to gain financial freedom and time to enjoy life more fully, you need to remember that people are your greatest asset. Whether you work online only or in network marketing, you need people. You need their input into your life and into that of your business.
