#workingfromhome building a residual income

I was working remotely for eleven years. I left a sales job because finding affordable childcare in the school holidays was impossible.

We didn’t have a lot of money but I enjoyed working from home and being available to go to the school and joining in with their outings, helping with lunchtime clubs and afterschool clubs. My work fitted in between.

I had learnt some online skills and was able to find small business enterprises that understood what I was able to offer because they were already offering a similar service. I was another pair of hands to help them achieve their goals. Working remotely, gave me the opportunity to work at a time that suited me. In local business clubs I was offering #OnlineMarketing it was new, people didn’t think it would take off and now everyone is doing it.

At this time I was working as a #freelancer for the online business club #Ecademy. Through #Ecademy I joined their premium membership #Blackstar and was able to attend workshops and learnt various business skills and Social Media support/creating and social selling.

We undertook several profiling assessments with view to improve teamwork and networking.

D.I.S.C by psychologist William Moulton Marston which centres on four different personality traits. Then we also had IMA from James Knight who chose to place personalities into colours.

In 2012, I joined World Ventures and again there was another system personality Test. This one again put people into colours. Once undertaken this test you will have had a much better understanding of who you are and what your natural tendencies are, and more importantly, you will understand the people who are not like you much more clearly, and uncover a much easier and more effective way to interact and communicate with those people. While no one can be totally defined by which of the four basic groups they fall into, once you learn how to read people’s colors (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow) you will have a competitive advantage in understanding what will be the most effective way to communicate with them for the purpose of business networking.

I was a bit timid when i started off in all these business ventures, but was particularly drawn in this for the opportunities to attend Leadership seminars globally. Now in 2020, the company has grown so large and has embraced technology and made it a whole lot easier to be involved with a home based business with all the resources at your fingertips.

For those of us who use #Smartphones the business can be operated from your phone on various apps. Though of course there is also a desktop version for all to use.

There is a structure in place to follow, though you are your own Boss of course. I am fitting in the prospecting around working in the day time and use the autoresponder app (Rapid Funnel) to send out the information to those who request it and then this carries on following up until people are ready to make a decision.

I am therefore inviting people to consider what their PLAN-B maybe for this time of uncertainty during the Corona Virus and in this time of lockdown where we are advised to say at home, would an additional source of income come in handy? What about the future? This opportunity is suitable for both young and old to build a residual income for your legacy.

Be In Control Of Your Future

I joined this amazing business in 2010. At this time I was working remotely, juggling full time self-employment and networking to find clients to use my business services, plus bringing up two children.

For the beginning of this journey, I was concentrating on building the network as I didn’t have enough money to travel, though I used the membership to get wholesale prices for airfares and hotels when I was networking in Europe.

After completing the D.I.S.C profiling at our church I was encouraged to do a coaching course with the aim to be a Business Coach. I can see now I should have just stayed focused with my business, gone onto their training events and followed their system and been more focused. But, I was resentful at this time! Other people were able to afford to travel, always posting pictures of where they had been and I felt discouraged and left the company.

I joined again in 2015 and went on two lovely vacations, I went to Dublin with my daughter and visited The Guinness Store House Tour and stayed at The Marker Hotel, Stayed at the Cava Spada Luxury Resort and Spa with my son in Chania, Crete. I went to some training too – in Belgrave, Rome and Berlin.

I went completely on my own to Rome and Berlin, travelled alone on the flights, got Uber taxis in the countries to the hotel and met up with other representatives from different teams during my stay.

I got another client for my Online Marketing work and then had to take a job in full time employment. I work in Lewes and it’s a lovely town and actually, I do enjoy this work because I work in a good supportive team and my manager can see my good points and encourages me to be my best and gives me variety with the tasks so I don’t get bored. However retirement is looming.

Life has past by fast and I only have nine years left in the corporate world! This Coronavirus 19 is a bit of a wake up call to focus more on sharing this opportunity with others in the same situation who would be interested in being part of a culture with positive energy and good team spirit working towards seeing everyone achieves.

We are all born into a system, we work hard at school, try to get the grades, get a good job and work hard, hope for pay rises. But we have to cut our coat according to our cloth. The same with where we live, renting is so expensive these days and meeting the criteria to rent has changed. Most good jobs these days are in other locations and time is spent travelling so it is difficult to find a part-time job that fits in with the day job as we just don’t have the time.

I have always had a desire to succeed and achieve my dreams. I’ve pushed my children to work hard and they are both doing well in their chosen occupations.
I enjoy encouraging and helping others to see their potential and succeed to change their lives for the better!!

Great start to #Monday morning on my Twitter @Stella_Holman that made my day!

I always check on Facebook ,Twitter etc for notifications to follow up with and this morning i was delighted to see a posting published by Social Media Examiner and shared by my colleague Mr Mike Turner @TinDigital about making the most of your #LinkedIn profile.  Well I for one are always interested in making #LinkedIn work better for me as and i love to share posts on my #SocialMedia page IT Personal Coach. After I did this I found out that I had been added to the #list  SMExaminer/most-engaged-followers.  Following on from that I was then added to the list jrtaaffe/socialmedia-people.

My Twitter to be fair needs a bit of tweeking, but with

I’ve been added to quite a few lists and of course I have created some of my own which have worked out to be beneficial to share content to my followers.

Suddenly the Horizons were Limitless.

I carried on working through my emails and notifications , answered an email from a business connection on #LinkedIn who had sent me an invitation to join a Global Market Place.

When I first got involved with Internet Marketing I made the acquaintance of people involved with International Trade and participated in the buying and selling of commodities, so I was drawn to find out more information on TLDE.

Update-Five years on….

1/9/2016.

I originally wrote this blog five years ago, quite a few changes have occurred so just thought it was a good idea to update.

Started of as a Sole Trader/Founder of  Ivey Business Services in 1992, still operating the same. Became know as TheConnector – changed this to TheConnectorInt

Marketing is via Networking –  all about relationships as Rob Peter’s would say #RelationshipCapital. – the art of getting to know people and finding out what they need.  They in turn maybe interested in what you have to offer or maybe interested to give you referrals or advocate you or even better collaborate with you.

Collaboration is great because  different people bring different skills to the table and so forming a team with everyone working towards the same purpose brings outstanding results.

I am delighted to be collaborating with Simon Barry from KiplingandKirbyVentures and also Rob Peters founder & CEO of StandardofTrust.com 

I have always enjoyed Networking events and Simon needed to have a regular monthly meeting as an incubator for start-ups.

We have decided to hold this in the Southwark area of London as our 1st meeting of this autumn is on 7th September 2016.  Please register your commitment to attend here 

Rob Peter’s wrote this really useful article called ” 10 Benefits of The Digital Start-Up Incubator Today”

I post information about the products and services that I represent on the following Facebook Pages.
