#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.

Work hard and have the right frame of mind and then your hopes and dreams will go according to plan.

My meeting went very well yesterday and we all spoke about the project and how we saw it going forward and were in agreement.   The project being a monthly meeting, created to help the S.M.E’s (small to medium sized enterprises) get advice and support to move their businesses forward and assist with business development.  The meeting to in-corporate a monthly Boardroom intended for the top end of “S.M.E’s” to have a non-executive group of Directors to be committed to helping them with their business endeavours.

Not just for the UK– but internationally to help with business expansion.

This is not just an ordinary meeting, the meeting will consist of ~The Business Game,  a short taster game in the morning and a more intense game in the afternoon with effect from November 2011.   This concept has been considered as a highly effective training and learning tool.  The  meetings  are in a confidential environment, participators have opportunity to bring a problem to the table to get advice and this issue can be inserted into The Business Game , .

For example if your business was making a loss – within the game we would provide challenges to enable you to make decisions at the finance, marketing, production and resourcing issues.  It is hypothetical, it is not your business but you can see how the decisions made within the game would effect the decisions you made with your own business.

The Business Game will provide a competition stimulates experimentation and innovation in a risk-free environment. It’s challenging, absorbing, enlightening.

The next event is on the 2nd Tuesday October 2011 at The Old Thorn’s Manor Hotel, Griggs Green.  £30.00 inc vat.   Please register on this link.

Tuesday

Age is a number on paper, you really don’t need to look at how old you are and then limit what you can and can’t do or achieve.

When I was young – in my twenties I used to think people in their sixties and seventies were old, but in this day and age where people try and look after themselves, keep fit and keep in the fashion by having their hair coloured and styled certain people never lose their attractiveness.  Beauty being only skin deep but what is in the heart reflects out.

In history we have some great people – for example Picasso who produced some of his greatest art pieces at the age of 90.   In the Bible there was Noah who built the ark when he was 500 years old.

It is important to look around you and see what you can achieve and live every moment and life to the fullest.  It is never too late to learn something new, speak out and encourage others also to live life to their full potential.

With regards to work, if you are like me and try and look at the big picture, that is not just looking at your own needs but also looking at those of other people’s and trying to achieve something that could assist others to get ahead.

We might find that our friends of whom we have known for years have stuck by us, but when we try and move ahead to start new ventures or try something new they don’t want to change their strategy and stop agreeing or offering the support we need.  Networking does give us the umbrella and stepping stone to find like-minded people in which you may have a common interest.   One of the main goals in business is of course to make some money, change your strategy and collaboration with new people may well be the key to get ahead.

In the Bible Proverbs 13.20 says “He who walks with wise men will be wise.”

When you make contact with people and share a concept or idea you have support to get things started and ongoing support and guidance to make it happen.  If you all share the objective and are 100% behind the project you are going to make it happen, then with constant encouragement the project will be achieved.

Today, I am off to Liphook in Hampshire to meet with a couple of my Blackstar colleagues, quite a drive for me but we are going to check out a venue that we intend to use for future events.

We have a project in mind and we know that we come to the table and bring our various strengths and also our weaknesses that we can discuss and get help with.

Monday I managed to write an entry in this blog and also share what happened with my other WordPress Blog on Ecademy  –

I had to follow my own Blog and comment on the comments posted, though sometimes with other people’s blogs I just don’t follow them due to the sheer volume of comments that result in emails to my email.

In order to raise my Klout score I have tried to initiate chat between people I have connected to.  This is working out well with people and so my score has raised a fraction and people are starting to follow me.   I know this is the case as I thanked someone for following me on my Slideshare Account  and then got quite a few other people following.   Actually, Slideshare syncs with Facebook which is handy should you be creating presentations that you want to share with a vast number of people.

I also joined a new network called “CommonRed” which is in Beta, I just connected with Tina Jonasen and the person who has created the network and this morning I have about 12 people on my contacts list and also an invitation to join someone’s Boardroom.   Well it is exciting what happens while you are asleep;-)

I sync this blog to Twitter and LinkedIn so of course it was posted there on my profile. Quite a few people must have read it as I had over 350 invites to connect.  As I write to each and every one it is slow for people to get accepted.  People with silly masks on who haven’t taken the time to create their profile or have a business name and don’t write a note to let me know who they are I ignore and archive.
