I work at home. I’m married with two children. Home based businesses really do exist. Let me tell you the truth of the matter though. They are not all play and no work. You really do have to work to make a go of anything. You wouldn’t plant a tree and expect it to grow in a drought with no water would you? The same holds true for any business, even a home based business, of which I have several.
Let’s start with business venture number one:
I was a radio DJ working 5-6 days a week for minimum wage. I was doing the morning show for our local radio station and killing myself with no sleep. Having 2 young children and a husband on second shift was just too much for me. I needed to be there for my kids but yet need to bring in at least what I was making or more to get by. So I got to the end of my rope and quit my job to go on to start my own mobile DJ business.
Well yes, we had to charge all of our equipment and put a lot of effort into the beginning. But now, I only work when I want to, weekends only of course. And I can take off when I want to for vacation time in the summer. I pull in five times what I was making at the radio station in a good month. On the flipside of it all. It is work to maintain it all. You need to clean your equipment and update your music and all that good stuff. The best part is, I love what I do.
The worst part is that when things break or need replaced it takes a good chunk of change to fix them for this kind of business.
Let’s look at the second business:
Well, my husband got laid off from his job. Things were looking horrible. It was now 4 months with no work. We needed a residual income plan of action. His grandmother had given us an acre of land right next to us which used to be farmland. It was all workable good ground. I pondered and thought and never gave up. I was not going to waste this land.
So we took this as opportunity and have planted over 140 different blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, peach, plum, cherry, elderberry, currant, pear, apple, chestnut, walnut, butternut, grapes, and almond trees and bushes. We now have our organic fruit and nut farm called “The Berry Patch”. For which long hours of devotion and research have paid off.
The good thing is that once the plants are producing well this is residual income in several different locations. We can sell directly from our feild as U-Pick or to retailers packaged, or at farmers markets. In this manner we can change our prices according to how the product is sold.
There really is no downside because we love the outdoors and working out there. It’s set up like a sort of paradise. It’s inviting and warm, and is very relaxing to work in.
We really don’t have a projected income just yet. But I have a feeling with the research put into it, our yields will be great!
Now, business number three is an Independent Business Ownership. This is done working through a company that you can work through your friends, family, acquaintances and others. You can also work through the internet. There is profit to be made through the things you yourself purchase and also through the things that those who are in your downline purchase.
This is a great venture for anyone who is seeking residual income who lives in or near a large city. The most growth potential is there. You can quickly build your downline and get fast results if you work the program as your upline directs you to. This is popular in Pittsburgh, PA.
You can definitely achieve your goals with these types of businesses for sure. I have seen proof. I am proof.
The key is to feed your business ventures with positive attitude and don’t give up before you start.
Business is work, employment is work. To own a business or work for yourself is permanent employment.
