Finding legitimate work at home business can be very freeing, and while you can get away with working in your pajamas on the couch, having a home office can help you set the work mood.  For many people, a little structure results in a lot of productivity. Here are some tips to get you started.                                                                                                                 

 

  • Have a space dedicated solely to your work.  You’ll associate it with work and be less likely to be distracted.  Also, it allows you to keep all your work materials together. 

 

  •  Make sure you have a fully stocked office so you don’t have to get up to make phone calls, fetch files, look up client information, etc.

 

  • Be organized.  Develop a system that works for you, whether it is filing cabinets or in-and out-bins. Having to search for important materials is time-consuming and frustrating. Also, being organized cuts down on clutter in the rest of your home as well!

 

  • Get a really good chair.  If you’re sitting at a computer all day, your legitimate work at home job can become painful in more ways than one! Spend a little on a high quality chair and your back will thank you!

Work at Home Business Opportunity: What You Need to Know

September 6, 2008 at 3:26 pm (business, Lifestyle, money, work, work at home, work at home business opportunity) (, , , , , , , , )

When you are considering which work at home business opportunity is right for you, you have to weed out the money makers from the money takers.  One way to do this is to see if they offer all the information to which you are entitled.  Here are some things to look for on websites or to request before you start any type of home based business: 

·     The FTC requires that those selling business opportunities provide a disclosure document ten days before you pay or agree to purchase.  This document is to provide written information regarding the business.  If you don’t receive a disclosure document, check with the FTC to see if the business is exempt.

 

·     In the disclosure document, the business is required to provide names and addresses of others who have purchased the opportunity.  Contact them to get their opinion on the franchise or business opportunity.

 

·     Businesses offering opportunities must also substantiate any income claims.  If they make claims about how much you are likely to make they are required to provide documentation based on current owners’ earnings.

 

If a business is promoting a legitimate work at home business opportunity, they will be happy to provide this information for you.  Make sure to ask so you can be fully informed before deciding on any course of action. 

To Your Future,
