Should you work from home?

work from home

One of the big mistakes people make when thinking about starting a business at home is not thinking about what it really takes to succeed at home.

At first, I would be surprised if people told me they could never do what I did, just because they couldn’t get themselves out of bed in the morning. You will sleep all day and do nothing.
Although some online business owners are notorious for sleeping until noon, they are also items you might encounter in the office at 3 AM.

in this article, I want to help you understand what is really needed to start a home business and make it successful.

Are you spontaneous?

Owning your own business is very different from working for others. If you are late, no one will blame you. You are responsible to yourself.

No one sees you doing things, can you do things well? If you can’t motivate yourself and set your own deadline, then starting a home business is a good time to rethink the whole thing.

Work 4 hours a week?

When Timothy Ferris published 4 hours a week, a phenomenon began. The idea of ​​only working four hours a week attracted many people. Yes, it is possible.

However, this is not normal. First of all, most of the people I know who have a successful home business love what they do. You know the old saying “do what you like to do, you won’t work a day in your life”. For many home-based business owners, they really like what they do and want to work more.

The reality is that for most people, 4 hours a week is not enough. I know that in the past, I had a day when 14 hours were not enough. I don’t want to discourage you, but I want you to understand how it really is sometimes. Are you ready to do anything for success?

Dealing with distractions

You need an area where you can concentrate on getting your work done. I remember when I helped my mother start her family business, her work efficiency was very poor. We eventually discovered that she was always distracted by people. People stopped to look at her because they knew she would go home. People called her again to chat because they knew she was nearby.

In the end, we decided that the best plan for her was to go to the library to complete her work. She can concentrate without interruption.

Make sure your children and spouse know that they cannot interrupt your work unless it is an emergency. If you don’t, you are preparing for the very frustrating experience of working from home.

Are you ready to study?

The last thing to say is the necessity of learning. I have seen people who spend $60,000 on college education are unwilling to spend a few hundred dollars on courses that teach them the knowledge they need to succeed in business.

No matter what, you have to pay for your education. Either hit the school through experience and severely, or take a simpler route and pay for the expertise of others. The paid route is cheaper and less stressful, but the final choice is yours, but please remember that there are many things you don’t know, and you must be willing to learn.
