My Online Home Business


Hi Folks


How to get paid to work online, there are many reasons why I work from home: I would like to cover a few in this article. I started working from home because I was peed off with the direction my working life was taking.  In actual fact I didn’t believe it was going anywhere.  Also the fact that my country was in the grip of a recession, and me being on the wrong side of 50 my future promotion prospects where not looking too great either, so I opted for early retirement. 


Then I started looking for work I could do online and tried a great many ventures from taking surveys, data entry, mystery shopper to selling my own services as a writer as a few examples.  I did make some money, but not a great deal.  Maybe I broke even and maybe I didn’t, but what they hell I was learning about the internet anyway.


As you can imagine, like many other people who had went before me I was scammed quite a lot, but even those times I took as part of the learning curve and I believe it made me a better person.  They say every cloud has a silver lining, so at least I learned what not to do. 


The upshot of my lean years is that now I am successful and I would like to pass on the experience and knowledge I gained to everyone wants to be their own boss.  I actually didn’t realize my online home business ventures would turn out to be as successful as they have.


About Making Money With A Website


When I first thought about the idea of working from home all those years ago; I just didn’t think it would turn into a full-time job.  I now spend more time on my websites than I ever did working for an employer but I don’t mind in the least.  I’m my own boss and can do what I like, anytime I like and there is nobody to say I can’t.

Back in the day I just never thought how much fun it would be to start a website and find ways to make money from it online: believe me, it hasn’t been easy, in fact a very bumpy ride some of the time.


The best part about owning your own home business is the sense of pride and gratification you get from something you have created. A lot of us have, and are still working at a job we can’t stand; we find ourselves not performing up to our capabilities for various reasons.


Before I decided to go solo more than 10 years ago now; I was working as a civil servant for our country’s government.  The money wasn’t fantastic and I didn’t like the workplace atmosphere (too much office politics for my liking).  I found myself coming to work everyday thinking about other things. 


When you’re not focused on your job, your performance slips.  Even if you’re a great employee, not having focus will drop your performance output just enough to make you unhappy.  As I said above, I left that job and with hindsight it was the best move I’ve ever made.


What’s The Best Way To Make Money Online



After I left I sat around the house for a while and thought about ways I could make money marketing online. I knew it could be done, I just needed to create some sort of action plan.  I’m glad I did because I just didn’t know how hard it was going to be to find the right program.


I researched quite a few programs and spent some money; let me rephrase that last statement; I wasted some money.  There are so many home business scams out there promising whoever signs-up with them will get rich overnight; well, there’s no such thing folks.  My advice for what its worth  –  decide what you want to do then make a plan and stick to it.

Another reason I started to work from home was the opportunity to learn from and meet new people; if you start your own home business; you better be prepared to work with others; the only way to make it in this business is by learning from those who are already successful.  Stands to reason.  If other people can make it then there’s no reason why you can’t either.


I’ve been in this business for a long time now and I consider myself pretty good at this home business game; I say game because that’s the way you should treat it. For Pete’s sake, you’re working from home.  You don’t have a boss who’s nagging you, and you make your own hours, it doesn’t get any better than that.  You have to treat this like it’s the greatest thing that has ever happened to you; if you don’t, you’ll get burned out.


The online home business strategies are changing consistently; if you don’t have fun with it, you’re in for a hurting. Don’t get upset if you have a bad month or get behind on your website maintenance.  Take off somewhere, anywhere, it doesn’t matter.  Go to the beach, climb a mountain or just go for a very long walk out into the countryside.  Sometimes it’s good to take a break and get re-energized.


Earn Money Online


This business is a marathon; no one earns money online overnight.  It just wont happen folks.  Like I said before; this is supposed to be fun.  Once you find yourself losing interest; take a step back and regroup. The more fun you have, the more you’ll want to work and learn.  The more work and fun you put into your online business, the more successful you will be at earning decent amounts of money.

I mentioned before how important it’s to learn from others; I got lucky because I found some great people to learn from on my journey to working online.  These people were, and still are at the top of their game and after you’ve been working online for a while you are sure to come across them, or at least hear their names mentioned. 


They are without doubt leaders in the field of Online Home Businesses.  I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am today without their help.  By help I mean I read all their books, watched their videos, and their webinars, and generally kept myself up-to-date with what they were up to.


If you think a mentor might be the best course of action to take then please remember these people are not here to do the work for you.  They make a lot of money because they work hard and spend a lot of time making their own websites more profitable.  Just try to latch onto them and learn.  They won’t do the work for you, but if you show them you’re hungry, they will feed you the information you need to get started or improve your home business.


Starting Your Own Home Based Business


When starting your own home based business be prepared to spend some time and perhaps a little money on your development.  I said I started this business ten years ago; in actuality I had been on the hunt longer than that.  It also took me about a year just to learn the basics, and ten years on I’m still learning new things every day.


Once you become stagnant in this business, you’ll be in trouble.  What might be working today might not work tomorrow.  To begin with I started out working about 8 to 10 hours a week and now I’m putting in about 20 hours a week working with my home business.  My websites do take up a lot of my time.


build successful online business 


The weekends are when I really put the pedal to the metal.  On the weekends I usually put in 8 hours a day on my home business; yeah, I sacrifice some social activities, but I didn’t start this to be average; I started my online home business so I could open more doors and have a brighter future.  Its true what they say, the more you put into something, the more you’ll get out of it.


If you’re just starting a home business or are having trouble keeping one going, please keep these points in mind; 


  • Be sure to find a mentor or good training


  • Be prepared to spend at least 8 to 10 hours of work per week,


  • Read as much information as possible


  • Join a forum that has to do with what you’re trying to accomplish


  • Exchange links with other high traffic websites


  • Build up your rankings on major search engines like Google and Yahoo


  • Write at least four articles per week and get them published, (preferably on your own website)


And like I said before; Please Have Some Fun While You’re Doing It.


Oh yeah, I almost forgot; stay away from those scam artists out there; there are are still some of us good honest people out there who are willing to help or listen to any ideas someone might have in order to better our businesses.  I’m not a genius, I’m just someone who wants to be successful in whatever I do; if I can do it, you can do it!!


How To Start In A Online Business

  1. Hi Robert,

    This is the best article l ever read with full of tips and advice. I start off my online business with the hope of getting rich overnight and go through several shiny objects but in the end, l lost my saving and almost quit. Then a good friend of mine introduced me to Wealthy Affiliate. I was skeptical at first but anyway joined them as a free starter membership. I immediately sense the platform and its community is unique and amazing.

    From there onwards, l never look back and now l am having my own making money website. To those on the fence, l urge you to take action now. 

    Thank you for this brilliant article and anyone who read this article could do exactly the same as you did.

    Best wishes 

    1. Hello Shui Hyen
      Thank you for dropping by and reading my article.
      I believe that what happened to you with the Shiny Object Syndrome happens to a lot of people who want to work from home and make decent money.
      They want it to happen overnight.
      They want it fast but I’m afraid there are too many scams out there just waiting for those people to fall into their traps with promises of huge amounts of money if they will only get out their credit card and buy their secrets to untold wealth.
      Its good you have funally found a program that teaches you how you can become well off and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
      Onwards to more success.
      Have an awesome day and please come back for more tips and advice.

  2. I thought the blog was quite humorous with a serious message of the fact that  money is not made overnight and everyone has to apply themselves I also like that you mentioned about following the best to be the best. I just wrote the very same things in my blog so I’m glad we agree! 

    It’s also good to know that I am not alone in my thought process…. and you have done this for a lot longer than I 🙂 And you succeeded!

    1. Hello Liz
      Thank you for taking time out to visit my site and leave a comment on my article.
      I try to keep my articles light hearted simply because I am writing for ordinary people from all walks of life.
      They will ‘Get’ what I’m saying happened to me because it probably happens to them as well.
      As a member of Wealthy Affiliate I get to communicate with people from all over the world and I like to believe I make a connection with them about the things that happen to them on a daily basis.
      I am actually an ambassador for WA and this being so a lot of new members follow me.
      This is because they believe I can help them get started on their own journey and I do my best to point them in the right direction.
      Does this make me one of the best of the best. Only those people members can answer that, but I recently clocked up one thousand days as an ambassador and received many messages of congratulations, so I guess the response speaks for itself.
      I wish you all the success that I have Liz.
      You get stuck on anything then feel free to drop me a line or two.
      Warmest Regards.
      Robert Allan
