Family-owned company seeks independent dealers who want to make extra money working from home.
Did you receive a free diaper bag at the hospital with the name of a baby products company on it? Or maybe you were given an ink pen by your insurance agent with his logo on it? Do you have a keychain with the name of your bank or beverage can koozi with the name of your realtor on it? Maybe you own a souvenir coffee mug with the name of your favorite vacation destination? What about a water bottle with your child’s sports team name printed on it?

Whether you’re in an office or working from your domicile, getting stuck in a routine is common for just about anyone who works! When you’re working at home, though, it’s easy to fall into the trap of just getting by. So often things feel rushed at home. You’re rushing to wake up kids, make sure they’re getting ready, preparing breakfasts and lunches, and playing taxi driver for what feels like the rest of the day. Before you know it, it’s 10:00 am, and you haven’t gotten any business work in.
The next time you feel like the day is getting away from you, be sure you’re not getting bogged down by any of these three business growth killers!
Starting your day after 10:00 am.
Though it’s easy to do, getting a handle on any work mid-morning instead of early morning can cut you out of some of the bigger business opportunities. Especially if you’re a west-coaster who works with a lot of east-coasters, you’re constantly battling that time zone to finish assignments earlier and earlier. If you plan on releasing a press release, posting a company blog, or getting in touch with a client or partner you know you need to speak to earlier in the day, try and wake up a little earlier than the kids to get a jump start on your day. Even if you just get up an hour earlier to tackle some emails, you won’t feel so behind once the rest of the morning’s duties are taken care of. (more…)

What did you do before launching your own business?
I was working as a Communications Skills and Soft Skills trainer with American Express and then, Dell India.
As part of my role, I was training executives in the art of communicating with empathy and clarity, both verbally and via their written communication.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your freelance journey.
I started working online as a writer in 2008 when my daughter was about 8 or 9 months old. I’ve always enjoyed writing both professionally and personally, and getting the chance to write and get paid while staying at home was just awesome!
Starting my blog, The Mom Writes was the first step. From thereon, I honed my craft by writing for several websites, including Blissfully Domestic, the Untrained Housewife and others, and focused on growing my audience organically by sharing content that reflected my passion as well as resonated with them.

You’d be surprised how many people I come across who have already invested a decade or two in a particular line of work and are still unsure of what they want to be when they “grow up.” This has been my experience with people who work in a traditional office setting as well as people who work from home. With so many different positions now offering full or partial telecommuting arrangements, it can be overwhelming to narrow the focus down to something that will meet someone’s work arrangement needs while also leveraging their skills, interests and personality.
If you can relate to this statement, I would recommend you set aside some time to do some career self-assessment, or, as I call it, Vocational Soul Searching. You can dig deep and get clearer on the types of roles you should explore by completing the following four steps.
1.) Get really clear about what aspects of your current job you like or dislike.
Author and speaker Marcus Buckingham describes a process where you take the time over a week or two to be really mindful about the tasks that you are completing each day. Do they energize you, or strengthen you? Or do they weaken you? And it isn’t about what you are necessarily good at or bad at. Someone can be really good at a task, but, absolutely dislike doing it. To complete this task, keep a pad of post-it notes nearby. When you feel a strong emotion, take a moment to jot down “I felt energized when…” or “I felt depleted when…” Chances are you will start to see some patterns emerge on the types of tasks you should navigate toward or away from.
