I’m just going to come out and say it right now. I am CRABBY. Or maybe I’m a little bit peeved. No, it’s definitely crabbiness sinking into my pores.
Here’s the situation.
Frankie and I are always checking things out online. What’s working for work at home people? What isn’t? What’s new? What’s a scam? That sort of stuff. We want to keep up on all the latest good/bad/ugly to make sure we provide the best information possible.
I made the mistake of browsing a website that, at first glance looked all nice, and cheery, and helpful. But in the end, it was just...the same as everything else.
Look, there are many sites out there (along with thousands of Facebook posts) that show you how you can make money working from home. And I’ve come to realize that - I don’t like that.
Anyone can make money working from home. ANYONE.
And the website I was on this morning said that. Here’s how to make money working from home. And it listed the same stuff that is on every website ever.
Now, we have a page on the site that lists some jobs you can do to work from home. But these are just suggestions. Ideas. You don’t have to do any of these.
You can work from home the way you want by choosing to do exactly what you want to do.
It’s not about working from home to make money. It’s about working from home to make you happy and fulfilled. Once you’re doing what you want, the money will come.
So many websites out there tell you the same story: sell something, do surveys, join some pyramid scheme. Can they make you money? Sure, I guess. But will they make you happy? Is that what you really want to be doing?
You need to do what makes you happy, and then find a way to do it from home. And when I say “from home” I don’t mean that you necessarily have to stay at your house 24/7. I mean that you have the freedom to come and go as you please. To set your own business hours. To be your own boss.
Look inside and find what makes you happy. Where are your passions? Your Strengths? Cooking? Animals? Sewing? Empathy? Repair? Love?
Finding that work from home job needs to come from within. It’s not just because everyone else is doing it.
Frankie and Andrea take turns sharing stories. Just good talk over a cup of coffee.
