The Perfect Job

One question I get all the time is “Dana, how In the world do you get started working from home???” I’d love to say the answer is quick and easy, but the truth is it’s not. The reason behind that is different things work for different people, and to be successful, you need to find what works best for YOU!!!

When I first started making an income from home, it was unplanned! I was in school full time and my kids were 2 ½ and 1, but we were struggling to pay our bills let alone put any money in savings, so I started with a company selling a product I personally used. Now, let me say that I went about that all the wrong way haha!! I burnt myself out following the advice of my “leader” and burnt out my team. The money earned did help me pay for my personal training certification, but during that I learned the product I was promoting had some iffy ingredients, so I left the company!!!

 

I decided to focus instead on my personal training business as my experience with selling a product left a very sour taste in my mouth haha. I had finished college so I had a lot more time for this type of business!!  It took me awhile to put my foot back into the world of direct sales, but when I did I made sure to do a lot of research and find the perfect job for me!

Direct selling is not for everyone of course, and some people have to try multiple companies before they find one they love. Because if you are promoting a product you don’t love, people will see that and not only will they not buy, you will be miserable yourself!!

Of course this is NOT the only way to make an income from home, but for me its what works best!!! With 3 kids, I can’t spend hours online and most days when I work, varies greatly. Sometimes its an hour, some-days its not at all!! For me, flexibility is the most important thing as my kids always come first. If you can work set hours, in a quiet place, MANY companies now hire people to do customer service over the phone from home. That’s a steady income if you can devote 40hrs a week.

Remember, you have to find what works for you. Sit down and figure out what you are looking for in a job, how much time you can devote, and what your goals are financially. And never be afraid to ask for help from others in the work from home industry!!!

 

Just because one thing works for me, doesn’t mean it will work for you….but it never hurts to try!!!! One thing that makes me successful is I NEVER EVER EVER force my company on someone. Instead I help them find the perfect fit for THEM!!!!! Find something you love, and you never work a day!!

Become A Survey Savy Queen

surveys

Everyone asks if you can really get paid to take survey’s and the answer is YES!!! Most time’s the way it works is you sign up, provide information about yourself and your life, and the provider will send you survey’s that you qualify for. Now keep in mind, you often get paid based on the length of the survey. Most times it’s $1 for every 10 minutes. Its not a lot of money, but if you really need extra cash, you can do this vs playing candy crush.

Also, you have to wait for them to send you survey’s so its great to sign up with a few different providers, you just want to make sure they are legit ones!!

My favorites are: ((click the survey name to sign up))

Survey Savvy 

Paid View Point

Swagbucks

Opinion Outpost

Ibotta  (discounts and cash back on groceries at your choice of stores!)

One of the great things is you can usually do these from your phone, and you can also share them with other people too!!!

Another thing I love is Survey Savvy usually has an opportunity for you to participate in a study program. For instance right now, by letting them monitor your shopping habits for 6 weeks, you can earn $150. That’s a nice chunk of change just for letting them watch what you buy (as long as you dont buy illegal things online lol).

Now Swagbucks is a tad different in that you get paid for doing surveys, taking polls, and other tasks. Also for shopping!!

Go sign up for these, especially Survey Savvy right now so you can participate in their Holiday Bonus!!!
