Working from home can look very appealing in today’s marketplace. The cost of commuting from home to work, child care costs, not to mention the time involved in all this work stuff. Seems to me if we could just make enough money to cover the household expenses, then most people would rather stay home and live the life they were meant to live.
I have been working at home for the past 20 years, and I love it.
I have done all sorts of different things, writer, photographer, fitness coach, social networking maniac, painting, video production, just to name a few. I never really made a killing, but I did make enough to stay at home, pay the bills, and stay out of trouble.
I was able to learn a lot of new skills.
When I finally made up my mind to leave the workforce, and be a work at home parent, it was pretty scary, of course the paycheck every 2 weeks was nice and comfortable, and the thoughts of not being able to pay everyone kinda made me sick. I was also a single dad, raising my son, on my own, which a lot of you probably know is a huge responsibility.
There wasn’t always the kind of work that I wanted to do all the time, so I had to learn how to “bend as the willow tree” and figure out new things to do. So I just took action. I went to Google and learned how to do something, practiced a little, then I marketed the services online. There was a huge variety of things to do, stuff people were too busy to do all by themselves, so I took advantage of this, and it started to pay off. The whole thing was pretty scary, but I just stuck with it, no matter what.
I wanted the very best for my family.
Of course I want prosperity, so when I took the plunge, I made up my mind that this was it there was no turning back, so I figured out what I was going to do, how I was going to generate business, set up my sources, and then I went for it. The first niche I went into lasted about fifteen years before it dried up, so there is plenty of room once we find a nice niche that pays well.
My first paycheck made me more than 6 months salary!
Well to my surprise, I was a success. I have to admit I was real worried for a long time, but after I took the action, all those fears turned out to be false illusions. Now it wasn’t always that way, as I had my share of struggles, but we always seemed to make it.
The internet makes it really easy.
Now we can just go online and find a niche pretty fast. All we have to do is go to Google and figure it all out. I found another niche in drop shipping, and its so easy and inexpensive to start, I got the whole family involved. They love it. I love it. All of a sudden, ka-ching, there goes another sale. My 11 year old girl does it, my 13 year old son, and my 27 year old son. They have all made money at it.
Who are the best dropshippers?
The absolute best dropshippers are using platforms for selling such as eBay and Amazon. These places already exist, they get a ton of traffic, and usually, when someone is going there, they are looking to buy. In other words, people don’t go to eBay or Amazon for information, unless they want to purchase a book.
My eBay account is selling on average about $5,000 per month.
Now all of that is not profit, but it’s a great start, combined with the fact that it was so cheap & easy to set up, the drop shippers program is the biggest no-brainer on the planet right now. Its just like printing money, and the whole thing only cost me twenty bucks to start.
In the end what I know is that if I can do it, anyone can.
