I work from home and revel in the fact that my office is a 2 minute commute from my bedroom.
No rush hour traffic, no fuel costs and no need to dress up in a uniform. I love it!
I started my online business in 2006 and it now pays more than going out to work ever did. And what's more I enjoy every minute. No-one telling me what to do and when to do it. Of course you have to be disciplined in order to actually get work done.
I had tried to start a Web site back in 2001 but without having any knowledge of how it was done it failed. I then found a company called Site Build It! who not only offer hosting but also a step by step guide on how to do the groundwork to ensure a successful business.
For me my first site was a no brainer. I have always been keen on needlework and wanted to share my knowledge and sell my designs online. I tried to follow the "Action Guide" but did jump ahead a little as I already knew what I wanted to start a business on.
It wasn't long before I started up another site with SBI!. This time I worked through the guide which explained how to choose what sort of business was best for me. Following the steps and doing the behind the scenes work before making a decision and registering a domain was the best move and the income from this site far outstrips that of my first site.
If you have a passion or knowledge about a particular subject you could do worse than give Site Build It! a look. I found the video guide that leads you through the steps to take worked for me. It is a wonderful feeling sharing your own special area with the world and making a living doing it at the same time.
