Working at Home – Is Information Really Power?

Yes, information is power but only if you use the information to do something. Just having knowledge while good, does not really do much to help anyone. There are many people that never feel they know enough to actually do something with what they have learned. They just keep reading and learning and never get off the dime.

This can be referred to as ‘paralysis by analysis’ for one thing. What is needed here is a great big dose of self-confidence to feel that you are worthy to take what you have learned and do something useful with it. This is just so you can believe that you have valuable information and that you do understand it well enough to share it in some way.

There may be other factors at play when someone just can’t get past the learning curve, other than lack of self-confidence. It may be a mechanism that you employ purposely (albeit perhaps subconsciously) to keep you from having to take the next step in your progression. Maybe you really don’t want a commitment like a home business?

You find it intriguing to think about but when you actually think it is time to get started developing your business, spending money and time, you will always find some other reason that you can’t move forward. In this way it remains a possibility, but you will never have to find out whether you would have succeeded or failed.

One thing that may be helpful in moving past your dilemma (after you admit you have a problem), would be to write things down. They say you are much more likely to actually do something if you write it down and read it periodically. Don’t just read it – actually meditate on it for a few minutes. What does this involve if I actually do something? What would it be like to have a business running at home? Who are some of the people that could benefit if I share what I have learned with them?

While you would think someone with a bank of information may make a great teacher and could start a team that would collaborate to build something, it would also be perfectly acceptable to just use the information to do your own thing. The point is ‘Just do it’.

Temporary Jobs May be Just the Ticket for HomeBiz Entrepreneurs

There are almost always some sort of temporary jobs that you can get from a temporary agency. Especially when the employment statistics are dire with many unemployed and not many available jobs, temporary employment can really come to the rescue on several levels. It can tide you over with an income from regular short-term job assignments and it can even lead you to a company that may hire you permanently.

When companies may be experiencing problems and find it financially necessary to downsize, they may start to outsource to reduce costs. They still need to run the company and get the work done even though they may be filing for bankruptcy, or are in the middle of mergers etc. They are being forced to reduce or even eliminate staff through lay-offs or attrition, which is “the gradual reduction of the size of a workforce by not replacing personnel lost through retirement or resignation” (or lay-offs).

This often creates a terrible situation for the people who are ‘lucky’ enough to still be there, because they are sometimes given additional responsibilities to cover for a person who is no longer there. There is usually no corresponding increase in salary. This situation can really deteriorate into a hostile environment quickly particularly when you add in the element of fear of what will happen next.

The perfect solution though, is to create some temporary jobs and then hire a temporary agency to send people. The people have been interviewed and tested and will work for an hourly rate, with no retirement or medical benefits, and no binding contract.

Several industries have permanent working relationships with temporary staffing agencies, including nursing, property management, and office administrative and technical. The temporary worker is an employee of the temporary agency. The agency is central to every transaction both with the client and the temporary worker.

The client notifies the agency of the opportunity and then the agency proposes it to the temp that they feel is qualified. They negotiate an hourly rate of pay, specifically outline the duties of the position and approximate duration. If this is acceptable to ‘the temp’ then they are sent to the job site ready to go to work! The Agency pays the temp directly either weekly or at the end of the assignment, and keeps the change from what they charged the client for the services which represents their fees.

Temporary jobs are a win/win situation for all involved. The temps are considered independent contractors. They can choose to work temp assignments either full or part-time. They can make some decent money when they themselves may have lost their ‘permanent’ jobs and are in dire straits. Some job assignment durations can stretch from days to weeks to months and even years and often can be the ‘foot in the door’ to a ‘permanent’ position!

In case you home business entrepreneurs can’t see where this is going, working temporary jobs might be the perfect way for you to survive while you are developing your own business (to supplement the income that is not there yet). It would work really well for example to have a part-time temporary assignment with little or no commitment and to be able to spend the rest of your day working at home!

Start a Business At Home on the Internet

There are many reasons you might want to start a home business. Everybody can always use extra money! There are many possible reasons for this. You may be under-employed. You may be earning less than you need to keep up with the cost of living as your company doesn’t believe in cost of living increases.

Another possible reason is you may feel you need to pay off some of your bills that are costing you twice as much because of the accruing interest. You may have some medical procedures that require large co-pays or deductible. You may need to replace some high cost appliance in your home or have emergency repairs. You should have some money put away for that ‘just in case’.

A major reason to consider is that it is a very good idea in these uncertain times to have a substantial savings account in case you lose your job or main source of income. It may seem like there is never anything extra to save. Even if all you have is $5 – put it away. On the fun side, you may need some extra money to buy a high ticket item, or take a vacation. Saving money is a good idea if you are starting a business as you will need to survive while you are developing an income.

In any case, a home business can be just the ticket for you.There also may be good tax benefits when you have a home business. If you itemize your deductions, you can claim a percentage of your expenses for housing, utilities, insurance and other costs. These are in addition to the deductible expenses you incur in running your business. Always check on the IRS website yearly as the rules may change, to find out what you are entitled to deduct. Always be sure to keep all your receipts from day one in case of an audit.

Your home business can be done in your spare time. If you need a second income, you will find that coming home after the day job and logging on to the Internet is much simpler than running from Job A to Job B with all the traffic and stress of a double commute. Although you will need to focus when you are working at home, it is so much better that you are there with your family.

If you really like what you are doing in your home business part-time, and have had some success, it is likely that you will want to quit the day job and just work from home. However, it is definitely not recommended to quit your job until you are secure in the knowledge that you have completely replaced your income from your employment.

On the downside, people that are self-employed do not have group medical insurance or other employee benefits like pension, etc. You therefore need to consider these costs. Take your time and develop your business. Be sure you know what you are doing before taking any drastic action. If you really want to you can sure do both the day job and home job at the same time and rack up the bucks!
