To be honest, there are ways but the only thing is..it takes years to build yourself to that status and it’s not something that happens over night. Well, the thing about success is it doesn’t happen overnight unless you win a lottery. But again, winning a lottery isn’t really a success now, is it?

Anyways, we are going to drill down on some of the things that might help you quit your dreadful job and do what you love the most – all from home. There are no golden rules although there are rules that needs to be followed and if there were one golden rule to working from home and making enough to support it, it would have to be patience. While you keep your job search active, follow these simple but wonder working rules that might help you work from home in a  couple years or months for that matter.

The Holy Grail Of Working From Home

If someone ever asked you what the holy grail of working from home is, what would your answer be? Nope, that’s not it. The single most important aspect of working from home is your network, the connections and meaningful relationships that you have built with others. This is one of the reason why working from home doesn’t happen overnight. Can you build a long lasting relationship overnight, especially online? Absolutely not. The key to working from home is to make sure that over the months or years you build an empire of connections that are willing to help you out or are willing to refer work to you. Majority of people that work from home sustain easily based on referral works. Networking is key and is probably the most important aspect of making sure you’ll be able to work from home in couple years or months for that matter.

But I Have No Skills

Are you kidding me? If you can read, write and have a healthy conversation you are eligible (that sounded like a traditional work eligibility description). The thing about skill is the fact that when working from home, there are many things you can capitalize on. Are you interested in politics? If so start a blog based on politics and share your views. Of course it will take time to grow but once it does, your patience will pay off. If you are not the patient kind, write an article and send it to political sites such as Huffington Post, etc. They might like your article so much that they might decide to hire you. The thing about working from home isn’t all about skills, it’s about interests. We tend to enjoy our interests and usually have a wide knowledge in that particular field. Share that knowledge through your own site or contribute to other ones to get your name out there. Think about all the things you can do. Think about your interests, your hobbies and how you could maximize your love towards that particular interest to make money.

I Want Quick Easy Money

Good luck  working from home with that attitude. The “work from home” idea has been buried into the ground by spammers. Google “work from home” and you will see what I mean. If you want to be able to support your means from home, be prepared to bust your gut and I mean it. It’s not easy to choose your own hours, be your own boss and make money without having to lift a finger. Those things happen in your dream, not in reality. Get a reality check before jumping in the bandwagon. If you really want to make money working from home you need to be prepared to add 4-5 more working hours on top of your regular day job. And of course, if you are a job seeker, you can put in more hours into your soon to be an empire but do not forget you still need to pay the bills next month, and what you are working on may not bring money for a while. Remember that there are no quick easy money, if there are they are those ones that won’t get you too far in life.

Leverage Your Day Job To Build Your Dream

As I mentioned earlier, working from home isn’t something that can happen overnight. If you ask anyone who is able to work from home, they will tell you that it takes countless days without sleep and a lot of sweat equity. However, having a day job will help you build your dream of working from home. You see, your day job pays the bills, puts food on the table and everything else. If you are going to make money from home, you need to set aside a bit of that income that comes from your day job so you can invest some money into your work from home business. Whether it’s a simple web design or a complex system that you need to get things going, your day job can come to your rescue for financial needs. So don’t think of your day job as a barrier in making your dream come true, it’s actually a good thing that you have a day job while you are trying to build a business that you can do from home.

Be Prepared To Work For Free

Yes, I said it. If you are going to work as an online writer, designer or start your own business on the web and work from the comforts of your home, you need to be able to give some stuff away for free. This is a traditional marketing approach. You have seen companies do it time after time, they give products away for free so the consumers get a taste of it. This is the reason why you need to be prepared to give your creative work for free at times. If you are a writer, be ready to write some of the best articles and contribute it on popular blogs for free. Whatever it is that you are trying to establish as a home business, be prepared to give it for free and take a loss every so often. However, this doesn’t mean you will always have to follow this advice. After you establish yourself as someone who knows what he is doing, people will recognize you. And although slowly your business will surely pick up and soon you will be working from home.
