Is it really possible to stay a stay at home mom, earn an income from home, AND live a fulfilled life that you love and are excited about?
Abosolutely! But… working from home is not for everyone, and there are many ways to do it.
In order to really be success in any home business, it takes discipline, patience and a success mindset. Being your own boss has challenges in itself, so if you are looking for a way to ‘stay a stay at home mom’, you need to ask yourself if you are willing to focus on your business every day.
I have a friend who keeps telling me she NEEDS (and wants) to start a home based business, because she is now a single mother and hates her job …but she keeps putting it off. And it has literally been years that she has been saying that. The bottom line is that actions speak louder than words. And if you really want to make money in a home based business, the best way to do it is to just decide “YES! I am going to do this.” And start right now.
Sometimes the pain of working for someone else is not big enough to make changes, even though the idea of having time freedom calls. There must be big pain in your life to make big changes. Most people stay in their comfort zone, in their place of pain, despite the fact that changing their life is in their control.
Perhaps one reason people find it hard to get started is that they think they have to start selling products in the network marketing industry… and nothing could be further from the truth. When it comes to starting a home based business, the world really is your oyster.
Here are some ideas that could help open the possibilities for you and help you take action towards creating a life you absolutely love and to bringing out YOUR inner goddess…
I love ALL the following business models because if used correctly, they can empower women and mothers to greatness, by providing them with a vehicle to personal and financial freedom. They are all work from home ideas for moms using the internet, which in itself is empowering since you can literally work from anywhere in the world…
1. Network Marketing
Network Marketing and Direct Sales have created more 6 and 7 figure incomes for WOMEN than any other industry! It’s a truly empowering feeling to build a network marketing team and feel the power of leverage, and one that is hard to describe. For those that focus on their business for 3-5 years, and don’t jump from company to company, the financial gains are not the only rewards. Spiritual fulfillment by helping other people and personal growth through the development of leadership skills end up being the bigger reason people tend to rave about this industry.
There are literally thousand of network marketing companies to choose from but if you are looking to join one, be sure to choose one that has products you will feel good about promoting 5 to 10 years from now and to join a team who will help you market your business using the internet. No matter what company you choose, your mlm success comes down to your marketing skills. If you learn HOW to market to your niche, you have the ability attract an abundance of partners worldwide.
2. Affiliate Marketing/Blogging
You can literally sell anything you want now, through affiliate marketing…from iphones to health products to clothing, shoes, and RV campers and anything else you can think of… Affiliate marketing is simply recommending products on the internet, and when people purchase through your link, you earn a commission. It’s everywhere. But if you know how to do it properly, you can literally make a fortune selling products to your niche market.
Everything I learned about affiliate marketing, I learned from a woman in Kelowna named Rosalind Garndner who created The Super Affiliate Handbook. Her 200+ page ebook will teach you everything you need to know about setting up a blog around a niche market, joining affiliate programs, and promoting them through your content. It’s the most comprehensive affiliate marketing education you will find, and you can learn more from Rosalind than anyone else.
Rosalind is someone I really respect in the online world and I recommend her Super Affiliate Handbook wholeheartedly. She earned over $400,000 in her first year with affiliate marketing an is an expert with valuable insight. But again, you can join affiliate programs and set up a website, but if you don’t know how to market your website and drive traffic, it’s won’t work as well.
3. Creating A Website Around Any Passion or Skill You Have
“Site Build it!” is an all in one website making software and education that teaches you how to plan, build, and monetize any niche. The concept is that everyone has something they are good at, and SiteBuildit! walks you through packaging that knowledge into a unique online presence that can potentially allow you to earn enough to live on. What are YOU passionate about? I am sure that could be an excellent topic for a website!
I am currently building an SBI site myself, and many others have found success with SBI after failing at blogging and other online website programs. Site Build it! is different than a blog. It will take time to build, but once you are done, you will have an income producing website you can be proud of.
4. Internet Marketing
If you choose to build a business online, education is the most important aspect. I mean, you wouldn’t just go out and start selling houses without learning how to write up an offer, or operate on someone without going to medical school. The same goes for marketing your business for success …it’s all about skill and knowing what works.
Marketing online is not rocket science, but if you don’t invest in your education, you could waste years trying to figure everything out…and even then you may never do it right.
My suggestion is to decide what method you want to pursue to market online (video marketing, article marketing, social media, ect) and find an expert in that area to mentor you. The key is to just choose ONE and focus on it …otherwise, you will be doomed to wasting countless hours on the internet, when really all you need is one strategy to be efficient.
So… which online business model is best? Easy. The one the FEELS RIGHT TO YOU.
Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be doing it for the longrun, so choose what makes you feel happiest. My goal is to help as many parents as possible create time freedom in their life, in a way that is unique to them and will ultimately make life better.
