Is working from home really right for me?

Work from home businesses offer you the opportunity for a self-made income in challenging economic times.  Often utilizing the internet, these businesses are quickly filling the small business market, a sector once dominated by small start-up corporations.

Those attempting to supplement their income or seeking self-employment after being laid off should be commended for putting forth the effort.

The sad reality is that with the increasing burden of government red tape and social welfare reform, the incentive to work hard, generate innovative ideas and compete in these economic times is dwindling.

With the gap between ultra wealthy and the lower-middle class growing, it is natural for people to make one of two decisions: take advantage of the system, or look for different opportunities.

Working from home and online businesses allow you to control your hours, the quantity of work given and the amount you are paid.

If you are efficient with your time, it is possible to work almost double what you would in a normal work week from the comfort of a recliner.

Furthermore, you can simultaneously pursue further education and employment opportunities without being confined to a restaurant, factory, grocery store, etc.

With the ability and freedom of working from home, you can now pursue other options more relevant to your personal career and reduce problems like:

Commute times in heavy traffic and being late for work which can put you in a position to get fired.

The largest benefit to you being your own boss, is that fact that you can focus on marketing yourself rather than someone else company.

Self-marketing is quickly becoming the most important asset to a person’s success in the worlds current economy.

Working from home allows you to focus on projects and opportunities that actually make you feel qualified and accomplish, rather than confusing and often unpopular treatment from a boss.

Why are you working for someone else instead of yourself?

Work from home allows you to focus on your individual talents and build a career focused around these talents.  Many traditional jobs (restaurant server, banker, security guard, clothing store clerk, etc.) do not allow a person to focus on their talents.

Access into these fields often requires a college degree, patience, and a degree of luck”.

Positions have to be available, politics are often involved, and the pay-off is seldom representative of the efforts to get there.  Alternatively, you can start your own business and be making money while watching your favorite television show.

Starting your own business does not require a particular race, gender, physique, education, or mental ability.  You need to have confidence in yourself  together with the nerves to step out and try something new.

    Great article. I love the fact that you mentioned that if you work for yourself you are promoting yourself and not someone else’s company. Nowadays job stability is a thing of the past and so many people get retrenched after years of service. You have some really great ideas for working from home. I have a few friends in the UK who clean windows 3-4 hours a day and they make good money. If you monetize your blog, how much on average do you think someone can make from it in a month?

    • Garrick Breaux


      Thank you for taking time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it.

      A blog can make you some extra money or be make you a lot of money. It all depends on your niche. If you have what people are searching for, you can make a lot of money.

      I would say you can make as much money is you are willing to put the time and work in to build an online business. Some people make hundreds of thousands of dollars and some make just enough to have extra money with working a 9 to 5.

      I have been working from home for over 10 years. I have several businesses and internet marketing is one of them.

      You are on the right path. Just don’t give up. Keep working and things will start to work for your business.

    You are right. There are just so many scams out there, you dont know which ones are legit or not.

    Working from home does interest me as I am over the travelling and really the people on the road. Also, I have fallen into a job that is not really for me and I want to pursue something with computers as that is my passion.

    The idea of affiliate work does sound intriguing. So thank you for that. I will have to check that out.

    Nice post Garrick, glad you put forth the effort into this site for beginners who need to become established in some niche and so that they may be free to earn from home they may be able to do so a little easier. Working from home in and of itself is a challenge for me because of the distractions that come about from family members but all is good if you can.

    • Garrick Breaux

      Thank you for the kind words. I understand how working from home can be distracting but you have to work through it.

      What keeps me motivated is that fact that I don’t want to work for anybody. I don’t want know body telling me what to do.

      All in all I would recommend that you stay with it. It will work out as long as you are driven.

    I love this article! I am an online entrepreneur myself, and I love the additional money I am able to make online each month. When I first started out it was a $20 every month and with consistency as well as some dedication that amount has been going up every month for the last year and a half. Now I’m only making $150 extra each month, but I’ve now got my systems in place to start generating more revenue. The key to having a successful online business is to make sure you treat your online career as if you would treat your offline professional career. On the internet of things there are thousands of people giving out advise on how to make money online. The best advice I was giving about making money online is to simply take action. People spend more time trying to figure out every small detail of their possible online as opposed to getting started. So stop reading this long comment and GET STARTED!

    • Garrick Breaux

      Yes sir! An online business is great! I have been operating my online business for over 5 years. It is a great way to supplement your income. This business takes time to develop. If you put in the work for 4 to 6 months, there is no question that you will achieve success. Thanks for visiting an please come back.

    You’ve given some great reasons for why we should at least consider working from home. I would love to give up the hourly commute and time-consuming meetings at my current job, not to mention the fear of getting laid off in a down economy. Having an online business created around something I’m passionate about sounds good, but I’m wondering how long it would take before I’d start generating an income. Any thoughts on this?

    • Garrick Breaux

      Nothing is better than the feeling of being successful together with owning your own home business. You set your own schedule. The quality of life you get from working from home is like nothing else.

      With the economy in a decline, working from home get put you in a position to make enough money to quit your day job. I’ve been working from home for over 9 years now. Although it took work in the beginning, I am glad I stayed the course an kept learning the importance of having a relationship with your audience.

      When I was working for a company, I building my home business. For me it took 5 to 6 months before I was comfortable enough to quit my day job. It all depends on developing a niche or selling someone else stuff.

      To maximize your chance of make money within a 6 months time frame selling something that is your own is best. You will profit more from your own niche or product than selling someone’s else products.

      Hope this helps you on your journey!

    You bring up some great points. In the past, I’ve owned a home remodeling business. The paperwork and stress of managing subcontractors were horrific.

    My copywriting business wasn’t much better as there were always contracts and the stress of forever trying to pleased clients.

    An online business has very few headaches compared to brick and mortar businesses, and the earning potential is unlimited. An online business is definitely the way to go.

    • Garrick Breaux

      Good deal! Thanks for visiting my website.

      I agree with you that an online business has less headaches compared to other jobs. I have been working online and from home for over 10 years.

      Although in the beginning it was challenging, I stuck to my strategy and got rewarded for my hard work.

      Best of luck to you in the future,

    Hi Garrick,

    I have been toying with the idea of working from home for ages, but can’t seem to find a niche to get started. I like to get involved in too many things and can’t narrow down to one single niche.

    For example I like Yoga and Cooking, but can’t seem to blend the two together. Or perhaps I am not thinking out of the box.

    Do you have any suggestions that can help me on my niche research? Thanks!

    • Garrick Breaux

      I have great suggestions for you with this research. I would definitely start with reading all of my articles on this website. They will give you other ideas to consider as well. Hope this helps and feel free to contact me if you need more help.



  10. Crystal

    I completely agree with you..Working from home is indeed a good way to go. Especially if you are currently in a low paying job that drills you to develop their company. Why not use that energy to build your own business? It makes a lot of sense.
    Thanks for your thoughts on the subject. Your suggestion at the end is very on point too. Wealthy Affiliate is the best avenue I have found to make money online so far.
    Keep up the good work. Many will be thankful

    I see that from your short list of best work from home ideas, the majority are online things.
    I think it is excellent that the internet is becoming more and more a place to do business and earn your income from, with the added bonus of no commute!
    But just like a successful business offline, it won’t happen over night, it still takes hard work and consistent effort.
    Anything that promises overnight riches is probably best avoided as that just doesn’t happen.

    • Garrick Breaux

      I agree with you on things take time. You have to put in the work to get results. All in all, having an online business is the best way to work from home and spend time with family.

  12. Matt's Mom

    I think that working at home/online is the wave of the future and more and more people are going to become entrepreneurs. Personally, I would not work any other way. You can find something you are passionate about and share it while making an income. Why not? I was looking at your list of the top ways. I keep seeing articles on day trading, and I believe that is something I am going to investigate further. Sounds like an interesting way to earn an income!

  13. Carolyn

    Working from home is definitely a great advantage when you have a family. Defining your schedule to make sure you work while the kids are in school and being there when they come home is just great. It sometimes means a lower wage but it’s a greater quality of life!
    WA is a great option to learn how to build and monetize a website too. I really like it. Best luck to you.

  14. Morgan

    Working from home sounds like the only way to go! Why would someone choose to be someone’s employee when they have the option to be their own boss? I would much prefer to decide my own tasks and schedule. Not to mention lunch breaks as long as I feel like it!
    Although building an online business from the ground up may take a little while and a decent amount of effort, it seems much more logical to build a career from something that you love to do.
    Thanks for the article!

    • Garrick Breaux

      You are very welcome Morgan and thank you for visiting my website. I have been in business for myself for over 10 years. The freedom to take trips with my family is the best I would say for me. I would have to agree with you on your the fact that it takes a little time, but it is worth it in the end.
