Between the increase in government spending (higher taxes) and the continued outsourcing of jobs overseas trend, the problem of job creation could be a lasting one.

You Must Be Disiplined

When you are working at home, the work that you get when you say freelance is sporatic and you have to seek it out.  Contrast this to an office job where your boss tells you what to do and you do it.  At home, you are the boss so you must be disciplined.  This is one of the biggest failures for people that work at home.  You want to have an isolated area, preferrably an office space that you can go to work and then when you are done you close the door.  If you try to do work in the area where you spend with your family you will find there are too many distractions.

Keep Educating Yourself

It's important that you get the proper education for working at home. All too often, people try to wing it and end up spending thousands of dollars with little to no income being produced. Those are the people that get discouraged and quit. You can avoid that altogether by learning the appropriate methods and applying them properly.

To get you started in your education why not try the free course from Get Paid Boot Camp. It's easy to do and it will help you get a great start in learning how to earn an income from the comforts of your home.
