Title: Making the Switch- Working At Home Online

Making the Switch- Working At Home
Making the Switch- Working At Home
  • How to make the switch to working online is going
    to be a short series on how to move from your 9-5
    job to a life of freedom and flexibility of
    working online. This is how I made my move and
    how you can too, no BS involved.

Making the Switch- Working At Home
  • First, it isnt working online but rather playing
    online and earning money. If I did not love
    getting up in the morning doing what I am doing,
    I wouldnt last a month. The biggest hurdle you
    have to overcome while pondering the thought of
    working online is to ignore what others have done
    to make money online and to do what you love

Making the Switch- Working At Home
  • When people first start out online, they look at
    the likes of John Chow and Jeremy Schoemaker and
    think, I can do this. What most people realize
    after about a month of trying is it doesnt work
    out that way. Earning money online can be a lot
    harder than it appears.

Making the Switch- Working At Home
  • First Step
  • Start! I know that seems basic, but it is amazing
    that most people only think and talk about making
    a life change for the better. So get going and do
    it! Learn about the different ways you can make
    money online and what you are capable of doing.

  • Second Step
  • Find what you love to do. Motivation is a huge
    factor in success. When you love your work, you
    arent working. Having fun is probably the most
    important aspect of doing what you love. Besides
    loving what you do, you will often know a lot
    about that particular niche, adding even more to
    your credibility and knowledge to the trends in
    that market. Knowing as much as you can about
    your niche market gives you the edge on top of
    the passion to pursuit it. It amazes me that even
    after blogging for a short period of time you
    will see so many other bloggers come and go as
    they slowly give up on their pursuit of money.
    Its a pursuit of a dream that will carry you

  • Third Step
  • Phase into your online work. I didnt just wake
    up one day and start working online. I started by
    reading blogs. Then I started subscribing to
    blogs that I liked. I opened up a free blogging
    account on and other sites, learning
    the skills of creating a fluid site online. I
    learned how to and how not to make money online
    (selling ebooks is not going to get you anywhere
    unless you know how to market online well).

  • Make the shift from part-time Internet
    entrepreneur to full-time self employed Internet
    marketer. Start small and allow yourself to have
    a life outside of the Internet and your work. As
    you grow and expand online, you will have to be
    the judge of when to quit your day job and
    pursuit your online business. I did this after
    roughly 4-5 months. I timed vacation and
    paychecks to give me the most coverage and
    financial buffer I could. This process wasnt
    easy and I had to live on next to nothing for a
    few months in order to accomplish the
    transaction. I recommend saving as much money as
    you can before this part or already be generating
    a steady income stream from your part-time online
    ventures. Both are good ideas.

  • Fourth Step
  • Find a balance in your life and establish a
    routine. It is a whole new world to work for
    yourself. There is no longer someone making sure
    you are accomplishing your work. You have to be
    your own boss. Treat your time as a commodity
    that you can no longer take back. Time is no
    longer worth a fixed dollar amount. It is equated
    in the terms of value added. You now get paid on
    performance and the value that you provide. It no
    longer matters how long it takes you to
    accomplish tasks in order to get paid but rather
    how much value you provide your customers. Never
    cheat your customers on value. You may find that
    in order to generate the income you want, you
    only spend 4 hours a day working for it. It is
    important to find that balance and treat that
    time like it is pure gold, because it is.

  • Fifth Step
  • Diversify. The days where you set up a store
    front and sold hardware supplies to local people
    are fading fast. In a world that changes in a
    matter of minutes online, you cannot afford to be
    stagnate. As soon as you start generating a
    decent income from your flagship blog or virtual
    business, you should be creating the next. When
    you have 4-5 different but related businesses
    online, you protect yourself from failure due to
    lose of income. If one of those businesses or
    income streams disappears, you still have others
    to carry your through until your next idea is put
    into place. The winds of business change so
    quickly online that no one knows for sure what
    the next year will bring. If people claim to
    know, they are lying.

  • Give back. Giving back is a crucial part of
    business and branding. Giving back doesnt always
    have to involve money, it can be in time to help
    charitable causes, giving advice to others,
    talking with and answering questions from
    customers, sending thank you cards and notes and
    just about anything else. Never forget where you
    were at one point, and remember to give credit to
    those who helped get you there.
