Only a few kinds of jobs could be done from home in the past but now internet has enabled us to work from home and be in touch with thousands or even millions of people. You can buy, sell, order, read, write, distribute, announce, advertise and … from home just through a small desk computer. This is the power of internet. I know people who make up to $1,000,000 per year, just by a few hours of working from home. They buy and sell the things that they have never seen them.
So is it good or bad? If you ask those who have to get up early morning everyday and drive to work and spend several hours of their valuable time driving in heavy traffic and then return home after a stressful business day, you will see that they all love to work from home. Yes, it is really good because I was one of these people. I was used to spent about 3 to 4 hours per day to go to work and return home. It was terrible and I had no energy and patience for anything when I returned home.
I was already familiar with internet and I worked for a company as a web designers and network manager but I had never thought about working from home through the internet. One day I saw an ad in a newspaper talking about becoming an online salesman, selling goods and earning commissions. It attracted me. I called them and signed up for their course. It was just a 10 hours course talking about e-commerce and specially SFI. They referred me to SFI and then my uplines thought me how to work online and make money. I learnt everything about internet marketing and could refer more than 25,000 people to SFI in less than two years. It was fantastic and my achievements amazed many of the other internet marketers.
But it was not that easy at the beginning. It is exactly like travelling to a city that you have never seen before. Even people of this city talk in a different language and you can’t talk to them and ask them any questions you want. It will be so hard to find out where to go and what to do. Most people give up and although they believe that the city is so beautiful and lovely, but as they can not talk to anybody and find a friend or someone who guides them, they prefer to leave the city.
Yes, most people who try to work online, just give up at the first a few months or weeks of trying and only a limited number of hard-working and serious people insist, struggle and win. The first 8 months of my online business was terrible. I wasted a lot of money and didn’t make even one single cent. I am sure 99% of people would forget about it if they were in my shoes. My wife was not happy because she saw that I spent a lot of money, sitting at computer for several hours after I returned home from my full time job, without making any success, but I always repeated this sentence in my mind: “If the others can, I can too”.
I saw this sentence on SFI website that “If it is to be, it is up to me”. It really influenced and encouraged me to work harder and harder. It made me so happy when I earned my first commission. It was as low as $5 but when I saw the money in my account, I realized that I was not wrong, it really works and I am able to do it. When I learnt what to do, I made $30 at the first month. It became as high as $2,000 per month after just a few months and became over $23,000 per month after one year.
Tasos Vasilopoulos, from Greece, was the person who I learnt many things from him. He was one of my SFI uplines. In fact, he gave me the success key, and of course he made lots of money through my activities in his team.
So if you ask me that “is working from home good or bad?” I will say they are really good and they can change your life. This is what they have done for me, and so I recommend it to you. I don’t know about the others but I encourage people to do what I have experienced and am happy with it.
