Work from Home Options – Deciding What Is Best For You
Once you decide whether you would like to work from home, you may be tempted to seek out a job as a telephone operator or join a home-based business opportunity right away. There are definitely benefits to those options, but stop and think for a moment, “Is that the right decision for me?”
While there are good companies and programs out there, it is important to assess your real needs and aspirations for home-based work. I see a lot of people jumping on the first chance they see because it promises big money. Money is a big part of our job, but is it really that important? You need to choose an option that will suit all your needs, not just your finances.
How do you know which option is best for you? Consider the common characteristics of telecommunications services, home business opportunities, and home businesses started from the beginning:
Benefits – For jobs, you will usually have less responsibility than a home business, as well as a solid check and a formal work schedule. If you are very efficient, organized and “productive”, this can be a good decision for you.
Disadvantages – You will have less flexibility and freedom than you would with a home business. You will not be encouraged to “do it your own way” – instead you will need to follow your employer’s instructions. Your work is not verified. A business can slow down and you will not have a job to do, which means there is no revenue. You will usually earn less money by telecommunications than you do at home business. If you are very smart and relaxed, and you want to make a lot of money, the job may not be ready for you.
The positives – The more flexibility and freedom you have at work, the greater the potential for greater revenue (if you are motivated), the less likely the business is to slow down (as you do your own business), benefit from being part of a team with the same mindset. people who support you and help you grow your business. There is no need to create your own products and marketing materials, as the company offers them.
Disadvantages – Flexibility and freedom are less than starting your own business, as the company may have restrictions on how you run your business, how you can promote it, etc. You may have sales shares that you need to meet or other restrictions. Choosing a long-established company can lead to overcrowding in the market while choosing a new company can lead to instability or a company losing business.
Benefits – Total freedom and flexibility in the products you create or the services you provide, as well as the ways you choose to market. There are no quotes you can meet, either make it bigger or keep it smaller. Set your own schedule and determine your income. Be as creative as you wish.
Cons – a heavy load. You are the President, CEO, General Manager, Marketing Director, Marketing Manager, Production Manager, Director, Staff Director, and everything else for your company. No one else will help or make you happy, it’s all up to you.
There is certainly a difference in the qualities listed above. Maybe you can find a great telecommunications function that allows you to have full flexibility and creative work. Maybe some of the “bad” I have listed above can actually be considered “good” for you, or vice versa.
What comes to you is what you want. What works best for you? Make a list of what is most important to you. How much do you want to earn? How skilled are you? How easy do you want your system to be? What kind of work makes you feel so happy?
Create a mental picture of perfect homework for you. Then go ahead and get (or create) just that!
