4 Things you need to learn to make next month the month you start earning …

..even if you are at home with the kids, can’t find a job or have a job but need more money.

I’ve been working for myself for 9 years, and it has been a steep learning curve. Finally I seem to have found ways to create reliable income that doesn’t leave me chained to my desk, allows me to take the holidays off AND spend time with my 3 children. I’ve learnt loads from my business partner Erica Douglas, and here we’re going to share our best tips to get you started:

1.       Change the way you think. You don’t always need to find a job to start earning. You DO need to be open to opportunities and you do need to be able to weigh up the cost of each opportunity.

2.       Do understand what you have to offer … and what you don’t. If you’re short on time, don’t set up a business that relies on swapping time for money. If you have an area where you are an expert DO exploit this.

3.       Don’t rely on just one income. In these times of recession it is even more important to have a few ways to earn. A part time job, income from ads on a blog, an e-course, some affiliate products: the more income streams you have, the better.

4.       Do get support and invest in training. Once you have started a small income, get clear on what you need to learn to take it to the next level. A small investment in training can really help you earn more.
