The Problem with Working from Home . . .
I’ve been working from my home office for over 15 years. And I love it—wouldn’t have it any other way.
But there are some unique challenges work-at-home-people face.
For many, they’re used to the interaction found in a more typical office setting. The home office can lack the energy and vibrancy of a team atmosphere.
When working alone, it can be hard for some to stay focused and maintain the structure and order the larger office usually has.
I hear from many readers who find it easy to start doing some household chore only to find themselves spending more time than anticipated and eating up valuable and productive time from their intended projects. They’re busy but oftentimes busy with the wrong things.
It can also be lonely. If you’re used to working with a team, working solo can sometimes be a difficult adjustment.
Family and friends can be a problem, too. It’s easy for them to see you as being more available than you really are. Those who would never think of dropping in on you at “the office” often don’t see any problem with stopping by your HOME office.
That said, I still would never go back to the W-2 world, nor would I want to report to my own corporate office every day.
When working from home, it’s even more important to do work you love and have strong and clearly defined goals. This will help you to stay focused and motivated.
I was doing OK with these challenges in the first few years of our business. And I was earning more money than I ever had before.
I was comfortable behind my computer screen. But I knew that there was a lot more potential and that SuccessNet could be positively influencing many more people than it was. I needed to think bigger.
And to do that, I needed to get outside the firewall and interact with people—even when it wasn’t always comfortable to do so.
And then Dawn and I attended our first conference. It was a small seminar setting. But it made us realize how small our THINKING had been and how much was being left on the table.
From that, we decided to expand our attendance of conferences. We usually go together, but occasionally I’ve gone alone.
The important thing was to attend. The people we’ve met–the relationships and alliances we’ve formed—have been both enjoyable and highly profitable.
Our business is bigger and more fulfilling and is impacting more people than it would have otherwise.
And that’s why we held our first SuccessNet Summit last September in Vermont. And we’re holding our second annual Summit in November in Dallas.
We know how powerful it can be for people to come together, share ideas, form alliances and expand their thinking.
I can’t wait to introduce you to some amazing people who will be happy to share their experience and knowledge with you.
And we’re excited to meet you in person, if we haven’t done so—or see you again, if we have.
Now more than ever, you need to position yourself to achieve substantial success.
I cannot promise that being with us in Dallas will be the event that changes you and your business forever, but I know it will have an impact in some way. And for some of those attending, it will forever change the way they think about and conduct their business.
It’s coming up soon—just a little over a month away.
And the early bird discounts are still in effect, so you can save a lot.
Plus, we negotiated a super deal on your hotel rooms—suites actually—only $89.
If you’re a SuccessNet Member, you can buy one ticket and get another ticket for a friend or associate for free. If not, the extra ticket is still only $97.
Make the decision to flip the switch, turn the lights on and open the doors to a whole new future.
It’s all explained here . . .
Now is the time for you to make a decision in your favor.
