Make Money OnlineSo let’s say you’re a single mom or a struggling young family, and you are looking for a way to make a bit of extra cash, or you are looking for a way to stay home with your kids, or you are looking for a way to…… (you fill in the blank).

You’ve seen online (probably on Facebook) that you can make all this extra money from home working in you PJ’s, and even better:

  • It’s super simple – you don’t need any prior experience
  • You can do it in just a couple hours, then you can head to the beach for the rest of the summer
  • Money will just be auto-deposited into your bank
  • You’ll be joining a team that will do all of the work for you

So, you get super excited and start searching for the perfect opportunity that will provide everything that it promises. This is it! You’re finally going to have that extra cash to pay off your credit card, or pay your rent, or ….

You keep searching and searching, and this is probably what you find..

1. All the Scams and B.S.

This is probably the number one reason why people give up online before they even get started.

 You are basically a newbie, and you are a bit vulnerable because you have heard and been fed how easy it is to make money. There are so many money hungry greedy scam artists out there, and they play on your emotions and feed that dream.

 They will tell you things like: all you have to do is get people to click on these ads, or sign up for this auto-ship super-duper miracle drink, or join this site and WE will do all the work for you (and you only have to pay us a thousand bucks) and on and on.

 It’s a bunch of bull shit, and what ends up happening is that you end up spending hard earned money that you don’t have in search of a way to make more.

 You end up disappointed, and quit.

2. You get talked into recruiting.

They’ll tell you “It’s super easy”

Then they say, “All you have to do is get 3 people…. Just 3 people and you’re set.”

THEN they say, “I’ll even help you they say…”

Yeah, that is another load of B.S.!!

That may be true, all you need to do is get 3 people BUT if you’re like me, you don’t have the skills to get 3 people. AND even if you get 3 people, then what…. ? You’ve got to keep them, and get them to recruit as well, and you’ve got to keep selling them more and more to keep them buying and keep you earning any kind of money.

 Some people are born recruiters – they could sell water to a fish.  BUT, most people don’t have that… gift!

 BTW – did you know that they typical FAIL rate in this type of business model is 98%?!  So don’t feel bad, you are in the majority.

 They’ll get you all signed up and then tell you that all you have to do is A B C and you’ll get it. …

 So you try for months and months to do just that with limited success.

 You end up disappointed, and quit.

 

3. You are told that it only takes a couple of hours a month.

Well, that may in fact be true, but what they don’t tell you is that if you only work your business for a couple of yours a month, you will see little to no results.

There is NO industry (that I have found to date) where you can work just a couple of hours a month, and then go sit at the beach drinking My Ty’s and taking selfies to post on your Facebook page.

So many people see something like “make money online from home”, and they think they have struck the mother load, that money will all of a sudden magically start appearing into their banks. NEWSFLASH people…. Working from home actually does require …. WORKING!!

You end up disappointed, and quit.

 

Has this happened to you?

It’s happened to me… over and over again.

I’ve been working online for years and years, I’ve spent thousands of dollars chasing the dream and trying to find my way to financial freedom. There were so many times over the last 10 years when I’ve been ready to give up…. A few times when I actually did give up!

I have FINALLY found a way that is working for me, and I am going to start sharing that with you over the coming weeks and months. So stay tuned!

I’ll also let you in on:

  • Business ideas to stay away from
  • Things that are actually working
  • Ways to get you earning a real income
  • Getting into the mindset of working at home (and on your own)
  • Tips and tricks that I have learned over the years…. the hard way 😉

I’m excited to get started sharing with  you, so let’s get busy.

 

Talk soon,

Staying focused can be one of the hardest things to do as an at-home entrepreneur. When you are working from home and trying to build a business, your main reason for being at home can often times be the main reason that you get distracted on a daily basis.  It can be difficult to keep focus and also keep a balance that will enable you can do all the things that you want.Stay-focused

I am no different. It is very hard for me to stay focused on the money making tasks that need to be done…

I will start a task in the morning and then end up jumping from task to task, putting out fires, and wasting a whole bunch of time “researching” or “looking for information”. If I’m not careful, half the day is gone before I know it, and I have accomplished nothing… zip, zero!

I feel like I am always busy, doing busy work.

Does that ever happen to you?

Does it every feel like you’re working and working and at the end of the day, you haven’t really accomplished anything?

Does it feel like you are spinning your wheels?

Does it feel like you are going in circles?

Does it feel overwhelming and paralyzing because there are so many things that need done?

Does it feel like you are sabotaging your own success?

Here are 5 simple tips to help you stay on track, get more accomplished in a smaller amount of time, so you can start to feel like you are making progress in your business.

  1. Every night make a list of 2-3 things that need to get done FIRST. These items need to include things that are going to make money (income producing activities).
  2. Outsource the repetitive things in your business that need to be done on a daily basis…. BUT don’t need to be done by you. Remember that you are the owner of your business, and NOT the employee.
  3. Set a timer. I often get side tracked in the middle of doing something. For example I am doing a blog post on a topic; I need to find out more information about that topic so I end up spending way to long checking out other articles, looking for quotes, images, or whatever else. On really bad days I end up surfing topics that aren’t even related to what I am writing the blog about!!
  4. Go through tasks and decide what is necessary to grow your business, and what is just “stuff” robbing you of time and focus. How much of that stuff can be eliminated all completely, or given to your assistant to complete.
  5. Stay logged out of social media and email until designated times throughout the day. We all know what a huge time suck things like Facebook and YouTube can be, lol.

Of course none of these tips are new, and they are pretty basic…. But, I think it’s important to be reminded of them from time to time.

We are starting the second quarter of the year in just a few days. Let’s kick it off with focus and determination to succeed.

Now it’s your turn! Are there certain things that you do in the interest of staying focused? I would love for you to share them below in the comments section.

 

Talk soon,
