Not All Work From Home Jobs Are Legitimate!
Sunday, September 7, 2008
Work from home opportunities are growing rapidly; various options and programs are available on the net.

As a matter of fact, the United States Department of Labor estimated that by 2025 about two-thirds of Americans might be doing their work in the home.

There are many legitimate home-based business opportunities that actually can help you start your journey to financial freedom.

However, you need to research and evaluate each opportunity carefully and choose cleverly. You can really earn tremendous income, work the hours and days you desire, be with your family and your own boss.

Legitimate home-based business opportunities actually are extremely successful if they are not quick get rich schemes.

So beware! Here are guidelines to determine if the company is legit home business or not:

1. Evaluate the company. Check with the Better Business Bureau and other business and consumer organizations to determine if the firm is indeed a legitimate business home-based opportunity and check how long is the firm in the business.

2. See if a product exists. There has to be. A company with marketing efforts geared towards getting people to sign up is considered as getting into a pyramid scheme as outlined by the Federal Trade Commission.

3. If powerline, upline, downline, easy , quick, no work, unlimited earning potential, no experience, turnkey, residual income, earn huge money fast, make money even when you sleep or tiers are words used by a company to advertise, then better walk away.

4. Companies that require payment for information or materials are not legitimate home-based business opportunities; if they are, then they must have a budget so to send you free information and materials.

5. Check out the company’s customer support. Check out if true persons can attend to you in case you need help and not just machines that answer your calls.

While there really is no proven way to determine that a company is offering a legitimate business home-based opportunity, there are clues and indication that can show you.

Remember, when in doubt, better turn around and look for another. Never be hasty with your decisions. The right timing will come, in due time.

Home Based Business For Stay At Home Mom
Wednesday, February 28, 2007
Clearly, moms that set up their businesses at home choose to be there to work in their most comfortable time, and of course to spend time with kids.

It is important to keep the home business a success. But how? With children demanding for mommy’s time, working time is compromised.

Here’s where time management comes in. It may be common to sneak work hours during the kid’s nap time and sleeping time but is it really enough?

Here are tips on how to manage time efficiently for the benefit of the moms, the kids, the house and their businesses.

1. Mom’s should identify activities that look like they’re important but they’re not. In other words, time-wasters. TV time or a little chit chat with fellow gal pals are a bit distracting but can be done at a more convenient time. These should be eliminated or be managed.

2. Keep a timer. It comes in handy when informing the child when playtime with mom is already available. It also helps in keeping track of finished tasks or if one wants to accomplish house chores or work faster.

3. Develop a routine for both household chore and business activity. Having a good one means smooth-sailing days ahead. Set limits as to which activities that can and cannot be done.

4. Make shopping and meal prep easy. Doing a scheduled monthly or weekly shopping will help save time and cash. Making sure that the list is complete saves a lot rather than making an extra trip to the store every time something is missing. One dish meals that requires the use of the crock pot is good.

5. Know the things that you need first before going online. This saves a lot of time rather than surfing aimlessly and go nowhere. If net searching is such a task, teenage children can be of use or plainly hire a virtual assistant.

6. Group like activities. If some of the papers need filing or some e-mails need to be responded to, allow time for it to prevent from switching from one task to another.

7. Scrutinize steps being employed to check if it is helping at all or not.

8. It does not cost a fortune and it helps make the job done quicker. It’s a win-win situation for mommies. Kids and baby sitter!

9. A laptop plus wireless internet connection can come in handy. Sitting out front or hang out at the park to watch kids play is a big advantage.

Time management is integral to every mom and is important to succeed in business and fulfill responsibilities for the home and kids as well.
