With the digital era that is now upon us there is an infinite number of ways to make money online. The problem is figuring out what they are, which one is best for you and how to do it?
Here are 3 ways I used to sort out the wood from the trees.
#1 - The right solution has a community that is there to support you and help you through those times of doubt. It has a step-by-step approach to learning that makes you feel empowered as you gain in confidence and expertise. It has plenty of support options for those days when you might be feeling overwhelmed with all this new information that you are trying to process.
#2 - Ideally it should be set up by people who have done the very same thing as you. For whatever reasons they wanted the freedom of working for themselves and also working from home. The started researching various options and tried many different ones. They succeeded in some and failed at others. Over years of refining the ups and the downs, the good and the bad, the money-makers and those that had little reward for the effort, they came up with something special.
#3 - It should provide 'value'! Just the promise of signing up and believing in someone, or something, and the money will come rolling in, shouldn't be enough. Even if the money takes a long time to come in, you should still feel like you have received something worthwhile in the meantime. This could be in the form of self-improvement and development, or in the form of knowledge, education and skills that can be transferred to other areas of your life.
In the past I've signed up with some home business offers that have promised the earth in a matter of months. The write-up was compelling, and the testimonials were inspiring. I never made my thousands. That's not to say others didn't succeed, I just never heard about them within the business. I came away afterwards with nothing really to show for it.
I've also recently found other solutions for a home businesses that I took time to look into. Even if the money never comes rolling in from one of these particular solutions, I will walk away with educational skills, knowledge and tools that I can transfer to other businesses or jobs I may want to go into. I'm also one person in a large community that communicates regularly.
So I urge you to look around. Figure out if the prospectors are doing what they teach every day and are actual proof that sticking to their system and putting in consistent effort, is what brings them their long term success.
