Working For Yourself: The Pros & Cons

website themeThere are many ways to work for yourself or work from home rather than going to a job and working for someone else. People over 50 and looking for a meaningful job often run up against a few obstacles, but I think most of them are not really valid. Why not create your own job?

Would you like to learn the skills and gain the ability to create a business and work for yourself?

For most, creating a profitable business could be one of the most difficult things to do. That is why there are so many Get-Rich-Quick schemes. But a business is something that you work at every day, and – news flash… It is work. It helps if you like that sort of work. Making money online has the allure of being the easiest way of achieving this goal and so there are no end of online promises of easy money. But its just not that easy. And who can be trusted to help?

There is also another very important consideration: Is it feasible for you to work from home? Do you have a suitable home environment that will allow you somewhere you can be productive and not be disturbed or interrupted. Lack of focus and a lot of distractions will definitely derail your efforts. Do you even have the discipline to work from home? Of course, you don’t have to actually work from home; you can hang out in your favourite coffee shop from time to time, or sit quietly in a park. Or, you can rent an office somewhere away from a disruptive environment.

If you are seriously considering an online job you should write down your goals clearly and specify exactly what it is going to to take to get it done. Its not about pressing a few buttons. Its very much a job, though one you have created. No one will be there to make you work, its something you have to do. Consistency and persistence is the key. There are lots of ways to work smarter, but there is no substitute for effort.
