I have been with my home based business for almost five years now. I came into it with nothing but a good attitude. To say I had zero experience and skills would be an understatement. I was as green as it gets. I had never worked from home before because I was THE biggest skeptic out there and wouldn't give anything a try. I eventually found a company that had elite credentials and a service that people needed and that intrigued me to jump right in. I didn't care about the rest of the details. I just knew that if someone else was out there making money with it that I could too! CLICK HERE to continue reading article.
1. Create a designated work space. If you have a separate room that you can turn into an office, great! If not, no worries, just make a space in a corner of a room that is ONLY for your business. Make sure the space is clutter free and free of any other things that will distract you. This setting will instantly put you in an efficient state of mind. When you have a designated work space, you can also figure the square footage for that area and use it as a tax write off for portions of your mortgage/rent, utilities, internet, etc. One of the many perks of having a home business.

Funny story… Just had a gentleman named Rodney come over to give me a quote to screen in my lanai. After signing the contract to have the process started, he started asking questions about what I do for a living. I shared with him very briefly that I have a home business with AmeriPlan and he said “Wow, and that’s not a hoax?” Funny to me how the average person is so pre-programmed to think that ALL work at home is a scam. I responded respectfully “I wouldn’t have been doing this for over eight years if it was.” He then continued to ask me more questions (clearly I peaked his interest with my “hoax”) and he asked me how often I work.
