It’s Tuesday and just another day here at the home office. The cats are all napping and it’s snowing out. I had my lemon and juice this morning and when I went to take a shower earlier, I found that the water for the complex was turned off. I had no idea that they were going to turn it off so I was a bit surprised, but it’s ok. I work from home so it doesn’t matter whether I take a shower at 7 am or 7 pm.
So why work from home? Other than having the flexibility to take a shower when you want, what makes working from home so awesome?
For me it’s all about freedom, happiness, fun and money.
Freedom to do what I want when I want. I am not bound to a clock. Like the shower thing, I choose what I do everyday and when to do it.
Happiness come from this freedom. No longer do I have a boss breathing down my neck to do one thing or another. I also don’t have to deal with co-workers that I don’t like. It’s also very quiet which the introverted side of my personality needs.
What I do is also a lot of fun. I have always loved being online and making friends. From the time I was in college back in 1991 and I first got online at my school, networking with other college students became a huge part of my life because it was fun. 24 years later and I am still networking and enjoying every minute of it. It’s even more fun now because of the technology. I just love it!
As for money, it kind of goes like this: when I am doing a good job, I make money. The better effort I put in, makes me more money. It’s that simple. Unlike a job where you are paid a flat rate for your work, I can make an unlimited amount of money if I choose to.
So what do I do everyday? Most of my friends think I just spend my day doing nothing which is very far from the truth. In fact, I used to have a friend who would just stop by at random during the day because she knew I was home and figured that I could just stop working to hang out with her. (I was never fond of that)
Anyway, I spend my days on the internet because I am an internet marketer. I promote other people’s products like books and various other things. I’ve written my own book and I spend some time editing that. Eventually I will be turning my efforts to promoting my own book. I create videos and graphics to help promote my pages, twitter and various other social media outlets.
My hope is that more people take the chance and try internet marketing because no one deserves to work for someone that they they don’t like, doing things on their time schedule with people they don’t like for a salary that barely pays the bills. I used to be one of those people and it was miserable.
Now I have freedom, happiness, fun, and money
