I wish I could bottle and sell success. I’d be rich and so would so many other people. The problem with achieving success working at home is that people focus on the wrong things. I get email all the time from people wanting me to tell them where they can go type or do some menial job and make money at home. Or from people who’ve spent a fortune in legitimate opportunities, but aren’t successful. Many I’ve been in touch with for years, and they’ve often had great ideas, but they’re still not working from home. Why is that?
When it comes to success in working from home, it’s not about what you pick as your work-at-home career. It’s about whether or not you’ll do the activities. Many people take action in the beginning, but they don’t follow through or they give up. Success isn’t a destination and it isn’t sitting around the corner. It’s marathon that doesn’t ever end. That sounds hard and tiring, but it doesn’t have to feel like that.
