As nice as it would be to find a high-paying work-at-home job or quickly profitable online income, the truth is, these things can take time. How much time?

- Focus on the tasks that lead to generating income. Too many people waste time on busy work, and then wonder why they’re not getting anywhere.
- Make a commitment to work your work-at-home plan for at least a year.
