You are thinking about working form home. You are sick of your day job, your long hours, your boss. You contemplate leaving it all to work from home. What you really need to know.
First, there is a great feeling of being your own boss but with that comes great responsibility. You have to be able to adjust your lifestyle to meeting the new time schedule. You will have to discipline yourself because it is all too easy to get distracted and not do any work. I set myself a time schedule of hours to work per day. I try my hardest to work that many hours a day but life does happen and sometimes I do not get in the hours I needed to.
Setting a time frame gives you some structure of how your day will roll. You will find out you will put in more hours than a regular day job guaranteed, long hours, because not only do you have to make the items you sell, you have to sell them which involves computer time spent listing and promoting, you have to be the customer service person, the package and shipping person, etc....this all takes up time, lots of time.
There will be days you feel nothing has been accomplished. I have days where my kids have millions of things going on and I feel like I am running to keep up.
Overall, it is the best feeling to become accomplished. I love selling and conversing to customers online. I love the fact I have my own hours and I can get up late and got to bed late. But you have to be realistic here also. Do you sell enough to work from home? Can you afford health insurance for you and your family? If the answer is no, then working at home may not be the best right now for you. Selling part time and still working may be best .
I thought I would share a daily schedule of mine:
7:00 am exercise, eat, answer emails, promote
8:00 Am get dressed and awake and ready to work
8:30-12:00 work on crafts
12-1 Lunch break
1-3 answer emails, promote, package and ship
3-5 work on crafts
5-5:30 eat dinner I don't cook hubby does so I am fortunate here LOL
5:30- 10:00 pm work on crafts, go shop for supplies, etc...
This is a general schedule but it does change according to life LOL
