5 Top Jobs for Working from Home

Rating: 4.5/5 (2 votes cast)

Are you looking to escape the daily 9-to-5 grind? Tired of wearing a shirt and tie or high heels to the office? Will you be arrested in a road rage incident if you have to spend one more minute in rush hour traffic?

If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, it may be time to consider working from home. Building a career in which you never have to leave your home office (or even your couch, if that’s your style) can have incredible benefits on your happiness and on your financial health, if you do it the right way. I left my office job over two years ago and haven’t looked back; good luck convincing me to leave my new job that allows me to sleep in, go to the beach, and plan holidays around peak travel times!

Opportunities for work-at-home careers have increased dramatically with the rise of web-based companies. These five jobs allow you to set your own schedule, be your own boss, and make your own decisions about what’s best for your business.

1. Network Marketing

Want a legitimate opportunity to get rich quick without leaving your home? Start a network marketing business!

Multi-level marketing is a business model in which you sell products (cosmetics, coffee, health food etc) to your personal network of clients. To earn additional money, recruit members of your network to start their own businesses. A portion of their profits will work its way up to you, rapidly increasing your wealth!

Check out reputable companies like Isagenix. These companies make it easy to start a business with small start-up fees, and they provide you with a top-notch product that will be easy to market to your growing client base.

Choose a network marketing company that’s right for you and get started today! I did, and look where it’s lead me:

Earn Big Commissions with Revalu8 (‘The Uber of Real Estate’)

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 4.5/5 (2 votes cast)

Revalu8 – The Next Big Thing in Real Estate!

Revalu8 is making waves in the real estate industry, and for good reason. The platform industry experts have coined ‘The Uber of Real Estate’ brings buyers and sellers together in the ultimate win-win situation. Here’s my Revalu8 review, and how you can earn a substantial income sharing this 100% free platform.

How Does Revalu8 Australia Work?

Every year, over $10 billion is spent on real estate commission and advertising in Australia. Revalu8 aims to give more of that money back to both buyers and sellers through their unique business model.

  • Buyers will now have the ability to make a more informed decision and receive cash incentives from the seller
  • Sellers will now have the ability to list their property nationally, decide how much advertising and commission fees they are willing to pay and only pay these fees once their property is sold
  • Real estate agents will now have the ability to list properties nationally and help buyers compare properties nationally
  • Referrers earn $1000s in commissions by referring their friends and family (see section below for more info)

 

Revalu8 Australia

 

Still Don’t Quite Understand the Business Model?

Watch the short video giving a Revalu8 review (overview) below. It outlines how buyers, sellers, real estate agents and referrers all win with this new ‘Uber of Real Estate’ business model. After reviewing this, I was sold!

 

 

How Much Does it Cost to Join Revalu8?

Revalu8 is 100% absolutely FREE!

That’s right, it costs nothing to join. To join, simply click the button below and enter your name, email, phone number and password. It’s that easy!

Join Revalu8 Australia

What are the Referral Benefits of Revalu8 Australia?

Revalu8 offers an extremely rewarding referral program that can see you earn BIG commissions.

  • Level 1 Referrer – 7.5% of the Success Fees
  • Level 2 Referrer – 4.0% of the Success Fees
  • Level 3 Referrer – 3.0% of the Success Fees
  • Level 4 Referrer – 2.0% of the Success Fees
  • Level 5 Referrer – 1.0% of the Success Fees
  • Level 6 Referrer – 0.5% of the Success Fees

Success fees are the commission and advertising fees (ex GST).

For example, if you refer Jane and she sells a property with $20,000 commission and adverting fees (ex GST), you would receive $1,500 in commission. If Jane refers Matt who sells the same property, you would receive $800 commission because Matt is on your second level. Jane would receive $1,500 commission because Matt is on her first level.

Because the program goes 6 levels deep, you can be earning commissions from 1000s of people all over Australia that you don’t even know! See 14:45 to 15:20 on the video above for further clarification on how you can earn significant referral fees just by signing up family and friends to this free program.

How Do You Join and Refer People?

To join Revalu8, click on the button below:

Join Revalu8 Australia

Once you’ve joined:

  1. Login to your dashboard
  2. Click on “Your SMARP Network”
  3. Click on “Build Your SMARP Network – Click Here”

  6. Click on “Click Here to Register”. Your unique referring URL will be shown in your browser’s address bar. For example, mine is: https://app.revalu8.com.au/Account/Register/JoinUnderPage?referrerId=c0421ce3-1b9d-4e42-a49e-c07df7f631be&redirectLink=
  7. Copy and send this to friends, or forward them the email you generated in step 4 above

 

My Revalu8 Review

The above Revalu8 review (overview) is for those interested in making a passive income working from home. Should you wish to join this platform, please consider the risks before doing so. In my opinion these are extremely low due to zero costs and the fact you can leave the program at any time, but please do your own due diligence before joining.

5 Bad Habits That Come from Working from Home (and How to Avoid Them)

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 4.3/5 (3 votes cast)

It’s now been well over 2 years since I left the typical workday office job and began working from home. In that time, I’ve connected with several other work-from-home gurus and discussed some of the bad habits that can emerge from making such a big lifestyle shift. I’ve been guilty of some of these at various points in time, but they’re all avoidable with some simple planning and motivation.

1.) Out of Control Office Clutter

Moving from a shared office space to your own home office brings along a special kind of personal freedom. You no longer have to worry about your manager or a neat-freak coworker walking by and commenting on your messy desk. The more “Type B” workers among us rejoice at the liberty to let papers, business cards, and envelopes fall where they may.

While the reduced stress of not having to take care of your office space is nice, it can end up having detrimental effects on your productivity. An uncluttered desk is akin to an uncluttered mind; too much of a mess will stand in the way of important daily tasks.

One way to keep things from getting out of control is by scheduling a recurring time for cleaning your workspace. Once every two weeks should be enough to maintain a level of order and cleanliness, allowing you the mental freedom to focus on more important things.

Cluttered Desk

 

2.) The Dreaded Bedroom Office

Of course, many people who are working from home for the first time don’t have an actual office to retreat to in their house or apartment. For these people, an existing space like a dining room or living room has to serve a dual purpose.

One of the worst decisions you can make for your work-life balance is to work from your bedroom. It seems like a new study is published every month that talks about the necessity of separating your working space from your sleeping space. After too much time spent working in the bedroom (or even worse, in the bed itself), your brain begins to associate that space with work rather than sleep.

Commit to finding a space in your home that is well lit, comfortable, and functional. Once you and your family understand the boundaries of your workspace, you’ll be able to work fluidly and efficiently without affecting the sanctity of other areas of the home.

Multiple Income Streams: The Key to Security, Growth and Prosperity

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.0/5 (2 votes cast)

The story of how I retired from a 9-to-5 job at the age of 29 catches the attention of almost everyone I speak to. Escaping the daily grind of an office job is a pretty common dream, and I’m living proof that it’s possible. However, there is a common concern that I hear from those considering the self-employment route:

How did you give up the security of your day job for self-employment?

Of course, there is some risk involved with leaving a steady job. The best way to protect yourself financially and set yourself up for growth is to secure multiple income streams. By making sure that you have an influx of cash from several sources, you have a built-in safety net on the off chance that one of those streams runs dry. And when things are going well, you can invest the earnings from one of your sources into other ventures. This consistent diversification is a great way to exponentially increase financial growth.

Here’s How I Make Sure My Income is Secure:

Network Marketing

Since leaving my day job, network marketing (multi-level marketing) has become my bread and butter. I love the flexibility of companies like Isagenix, and I thrive on the immediate rewards you get from hard work in the network marketing industry. On top of a generous compensation system, I’ve had the opportunity to go on multiple all-expenses paid vacations through Isagenix including Mexico, Cambodia and San Diego. A steady income and free travel – what more could you want?

Here’s a cheque I was presented with recently onstage at the annual Isagenix conference in Brisbane. This was awarded for my cumulative earnings in Isagenix since I joined 2 years ago. Within a few months I’ll be in the $500K club!

Isagenix 250K Club

Since joining Isagenix 2 years ago I have amassed over $250,000 in earnings (I’m very close to the $500K club!)

 

If this sort of money grabs your attention, get my free tips and tricks in my network marketing eBook below:

 

Affiliate Links

There’s a number of websites/tools that I strongly recommend if you wish to be successful in online marketing. These can be found here. When a customer signs up to any of these programs, I receive a referral fee. NOTE: I only recommend websites that I actually use and 100% believe in.

If you’ve been reading my blog recently, you may have noticed some product links embedded in a couple articles such as Network Marketing Books I Recommend and 8 Products I Can’t Live Without. Not only did those posts give me the opportunity to advocate for products that I truly believe in, they set up an additional revenue source through Amazon’s affiliate marketing program. I also have affiliate links with other nutritional products. By promoting specific products to my followers, I earn a small commission every time a visitor clicks through and purchases from my embedded link. It takes just a few minutes to set up and the rewards come in immediately.

Outside Investments

The lifestyle of the self-employed entrepreneur naturally attracts like-minded people. And when a few entrepreneurs get together, the ideas start flying faster that you can keep track of them! Just through a few of my close professional friendships, I’ve had the opportunity to invest in ventures from restaurants to app development. I’m always looking for opportunities to diversify my portfolio; you should be too!

8 Products That I Use Every Day for My Home-Based Businesses

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 4.3/5 (3 votes cast)

One thing that I didn’t realise when I transitioned from working in an office to working from home was how much I would come to rely on certain products and services (you can see my full list of recommended online marketing and SEO websites/tools here). In an office, your infrastructure is built in – your company likely provides your computer and other basic supplies. However, when you begin working from home you are responsible for everything from pens and paper to your mobile phone and workstation.

In my day-to-day life I balance the needs of several business ventures in addition to my personal interests, hobbies, and relationships. To meet the needs of these various responsibilities, there are several things that I’ve come to rely on:

1. Daily To-Do Pad

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about writing out my to-do list that focuses my goals and increases my productivity. This affordable to-do pad is easy-to-use, well organised, and provides enough pages for three months of regular workweeks. The manufacturing company, Mass Market Paperbacks, produces a number of similar items that can help organise everything from your grocery list to meeting agendas. I’m all about organisation – take the extra time to plan at the start and you’ll reap the rewards in the end!

2. Dry-Erase Calendar

Along the same line as my previous suggestion, I have this calendar in my home office. Any network marketing product that can help you keep your eye on long-term goals is a great thing to have; this calendar is the perfect size for me to see my appointments from across the room, but it’s not so huge that it dominates the wall.

3. Bose Quiet Comfort Headphones

As I’ve covered in previous posts, working from home means that your office can be everywhere from the local coffee shop to the beach to the cabin of a long-haul flight. While I love the freedom of being able to work anywhere in the world, it does involve a lack of control over my office environment. My workday occasionally involves fighting against loud people and ambient noise, which is why I don’t travel without noise-cancelling headphones. These headphones offer excellent sound and do a great job of tuning out the outside world!

19 Network Marketing Books Every Entrepreneur Should Read

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 4.5/5 (2 votes cast)

I strongly believe that with the right mindset and work ethic, anyone can build and maintain a thriving network marketing/MLM business. However, as I’ve worked to develop my own network marketing career, I’ve come across a number of network marketing books and entrepreneurial books that have inspired or guided me on the path to success.

Some of these books are specific to the network marketing and MLM industry, while others deal more broadly with entrepreneurship or self-improvement. They are all valuable to any aspiring business leader or home-based entrepreneur. All of the books on this page can be purchased securely and quickly through Amazon.

You can also read more about my network marketing journey in my free eBook:

 

MLM/Network Marketing Books

 

1. Magnetic Sponsoring – Mike Dillard

This network marketing book is a must-have for network marketers who worry about finding new leads for their MLM business. Rather than supplying overused techniques for lead generation, Mike Dillard offers practical advice on how to change your mindset and presentation to magnetically draw people to you and your business. Since starting his network marketing career in 2006, Dillard has earned over 50 million dollars between his successful financial education programs and entrepreneurial ventures.

2. Go Pro – Eric Worre

Eric Worre’s network marketing book was the guide most often recommended to me by other MLM professionals, and with good reason. His seven-step guide to building a successful network marketing business helped inform many of the decision that I made in my first three months of building my Isagenix business. Go Pro will give you everything you need to transition from an amateur businessperson to a professional network marketer.

3. The Four Year Career – Richard Bliss Brooke

Like Eric Worre’s Go Pro, The Four Year Career is an essential MLM book, penned by industry superstar Richard Bliss Brooke. The author focuses not only on the necessary steps for building a multi level marketing business, but also on the missteps to avoid and untrue myths that could sidetrack your success. His MLM book ends with a series of “true stories” highlighting some of the greatest entrepreneurs in the MLM industry.

Work from Home & Live Your Ultimate Life!

Work from Home Opportunities

With the increase in internet-based positions and independent home-based business opportunities, it is now more possible than ever to leave the typical 9-to-5 job and work from the comfort of your own home. With the freedom to set your own schedule, create your business goals and benchmarks, and work at your own pace, you’ll experience a level of job satisfaction by working from home that would be impossible in a normal office job.

Since I made the transition to working from home, I’ve seen my quality of life increase dramatically. I have more time to spend with friends and loved ones, the flexibility to enjoy the finer aspects of life, and the freedom to invest in a variety of businesses and opportunities.

I don’t just work from home on my various businesses. I can work from virtually anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Here’s me catching up on a few emails whilst poolside in Cambodia. The great thing about this trip is I won it through Isagenix! You can see more images of this amazing experience here.

Benefits of Working from Home

Working from home has many benefits, including:

  • No More Commute: Countless corporate employees drive over an hour each way to get to their job – 40 hours per month in the car or on a commuter train. By working from home, you can devote that time to something more productive or take the extra time to be with friends and family.
  • Reap What You Sow: When you work from home as an independent entrepreneur, you see the direct rewards of your efforts. You get to decide what happens with every dollar you earn, rather than passing the money on up to some corporate executive.
  • Personal Flexibility: Had you been looking to take a 10-day vacation but were unable to get the necessary days off from work? As a self-employed person, you can take a holiday whenever you’d like and make up for it by working longer during other weeks. You set your own schedule and you are your own boss. Here I am enjoying summer in Perth, Australia. To see more of these, follow me on Instagram.

The 5 Skills Every Successful Entrepreneur Has in Common

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 4.8/5 (8 votes cast)

Like most things in life, building a thriving business depends on a healthy combination of talent, intelligence, and hard work. There are a few key traits that I’ve identified that go a long way toward a successful career as an entrepreneur.

1. The Idea

Business IdeaBefore anything gets started with your business, you have to come up with an idea. What are you selling? What service are you providing? And, more specifically, why does your customer have to have this product or service? What separates you from the competitors or distinguishes your product as something that hasn’t been seen before?

The key here for a successful career is not just one great idea, but an overflowing pool of new products, concepts and services that you can’t wait to turn into a successful enterprise. Of course, there are some entrepreneurial “one-hit wonders” who struck gold with a great idea and never developed another venture. However, these are the exception rather than the rule. Famous entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, and Elon Musk invigorated their careers several times over with new ideas and initiatives.

Each new concept that you develop into a business represents a new opportunity for growth and diversification in your career. Don’t be afraid of failure! You will learn something from every project, giving you new tools to hone your next idea into a success!

2. The Drive

Entrepreneurs are often attracted to this career and lifestyle because of the flexibility it offers. You are in the driver’s seat for your business and get to set the course not only for your working hours and responsibilities but also for those of your team. Needless to say, it’s essential that you have the drive and motivation to keep working day after day.

The freedom associated with being an entrepreneur is undoubtedly a wonderful thing. You can set your own hours and take your own holidays without ever having to answer to a manager. However, you must never delude yourself into thinking that being an entrepreneur means less time on the job. On the contrary, you should expect to work much harder at longer hours than your friends who work a typical 9-to-5! Successful entrepreneurs understand that you benefit directly from every hour you put into your business, and the drive to wake up every morning and put in 8-10 hours of work is key to building a prosperous company.

3. The Charisma

Where would a business be without people? I have yet to hear of a successful business that doesn’t interact with clients or team members. Charisma and management skills are arguably the most common traits found in superstar entrepreneurs. In many cases, it seems like we’re buying the person rather than the product they’re promoting.

As your business grows, you’ll need to expand your team of employees to maximise expansion and profits. To attract the top people to your business, you need to present an image that is charming and well-spoken. You must inspire confidence with your actions, words, and demeanor; people should be excited to join your skyrocketing company! In many ways, this aspect of your enterprises must come “from the top.” Businesses are molded in the image of their leader, and you want a multifaceted organisation that represents the very best characteristics that you can demonstrate.

Steve Jobs EntrepreneurI’m drawn again here to the story of Steve Jobs. Arguably the most famous entrepreneur of our time, he built Apple based on his qualities of creativity, innovation, and attention to detail. The charisma that he exuded during public presentations inspired millions to purchase Apple phones and computers, as people around the world trusted that a product promoted by Steve Jobs would be stylish, innovative, and user-friendly.
