The Trick to Making Money From Home

In Uncategorized on December 17, 2008 at 4:26 am

You already know the secret, really. Anybody does. I hate to sound like a sappy family movie but- Its been inside you all along.

You can make extra money- and maybe a good living- with something you already have beating around in your head. Something you are good at, a subject you excel at, be it 18th century English Literature or making robots- you can make money showing people how to do it.

Most often the problem here is getting started. First choose your subject and then build your “product” around it and your strengths.

For instance, have you been a cashier for 37 years? We’re you cashier of the month 12 times consecutively? Can you work every cash register ever built? Do you have hints and tips on working more efficiently, staying positive and getting a raise or two? You are a consultant and you didn’t even know it. You can teach new cashiers how to be the best. Store owners will hire you to come in and do so. Private folks will hire you to get better at their job. The sky is the limit. Entrepreneur Magazine says ” Everyone has an untapped reservoir of knowledge. Put yours to work for you as an independent consultant by teaching your skills to others.”

It doesn’t have to be cashier. Anything that you have many, many years of experience in will work. Beekeeping, ball room dance, babysitting, etc. You name it, you’ve got a new career.

Your next step is to determine the way you will present your information or “sell your product”. Will you hold classes or seminars, one on one tutoring, sell books? Maybe all of these above?

Spend some time putting together your approach. While your in line at the store or waiting for a gas pump give it some thought and take down a few notes. Stuff like what you will include in the first meeting with your clients, how you will run the business, consultant fee’s etc.

This is where you find out if you need any special licence or permits. If you are consulting in a field that requires certain certification you will need to have those as well.

There are many books and business kits available for this type of thing. Begin reading and researching as soon as possible. The more you learn before hand the better off you’ll be.

It might not make you a millionaire but it will bring in a few extra dollars to help make ends meet.
