Working from home and baby sitting your toddlers at the same time is just impossible for some. But every difficult situation has got its own formula. Although it varies to the needs of your children. If both parents are working at home you could devise a plan to balance your professional from your personal needs. Determine what strategies are going to work and what isn’t. Given that you are on a tight budget and hiring a nanny is out of question. A better strategy would be to take turns on the errands, household chores and the baby sitting. Let them watch some educational materials on TV or you can get them a tablet and buy educational apps for toddlers. It would occupy their mind momentarily and you can continue on your work without a distraction.
I have been working online for almost 3 years now and I am having a blast at first. Along came my baby boy and I started falling apart. A newborn baby is quiet easy to babysit because they will just sleep and sleep for 16-18 hours a day. But when he was already 1 year old. He doesn’t sleep that much and becomes unmanageable. I can’t concentrate on my work most of the time because he keeps on barging into my room and wants to sit on my lap and types on my keyboard. I always keep my door open for him so that I could easily look out what he is doing at the living room. My strategy was, to let him watch Disney jr. or Nickledeon. But after a few hours he became uninterested and wants my attention. What makes it worse is that his motorskills are now developing and he just climb anything he sees climbable. Like on top of the table or swing himself onto the bar stools. I get a heart attack every time he pulls stunts like that.
Toddlers needs full attention and its hard if you are a single mom. But I think the one thing that helped me get through this is the support of my family. If you can manage to live somewhere near your relatives then it’s a big help. Another thing my 1 year old is fond of are nursery rhymes. He can sing and dance with these videos for hours. Also, try to get the chance to work while your toddler is sleeping. It works out well for me for the past 15 months.

When people ask me what do I do and after I tell them I work from home they often say how lucky to be living their dream job. Oh yes, I feel lucky. Working from home is a great lifestyle choice. But there are many challenges that I have to face every day, one of which is not getting distracted and losing focus on my work.
Unlike the conventional office job, where you’re confined in your cubicle from 8am – 5pm everyday, when you work from home you are often distracted with home chores, your kids and neighbors. By the time you are done with chores and stuff, you will be surprise that it’s already past 5pm and you have not even finish a single task for your home based business. If you have just started working from home, and are in the same boat, don’t be discouraged. There are many ways to boost your productivity and stay focused on getting your work done when working at home.
9 tips for being more productive working from home
1. Setup your own office at home – You don’t have to occupy an entire room for an office but make an effort to set up a work area. Your workspace should have everything you need within reach to get you through the day. By simply creating area where your work gets done, instead of working on the kitchen table or sofa, it can help you focus.
2. Track your time by hand – Use a 15 minutes increment in writing down everything that you are doing at that moment, from 7am-7pm. So that at the end of the day you will able to identify when you slacked and when you were most productive so you can plan the next day better.
3. Invite someone else to work with you in your home – There are times when you can lose motivation when you are working from home alone. Sometimes, you get tempted to switch on your television or start doing the chores. Having a peer or a partner come over to work with you can help you maintain your focus.
4. Work from somewhere else – When household chores are calling and tempting you to stop working to do the laundry or clean the bathroom, then maybe it is time for you to get out of the house. You can head up to the library, coffee shops or somewhere quiet enough for you to work free from distractions.
5. Dress for Work – Changing from your pajamas and into a smart shirt or blouse will help signal the beginning of your workday. “It is also important to set your mindset that you are in a place of business and that you are a professional.” Says Claude Delgado, founder of D Graphic Solutions.
6. Reduce Web Clutter – Get rid of the unnecessary tabs on your browser other than those that are related to your work. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram should not be open unless you are done with your work for the day. These social media sites will take much of your time faster than you even know.
7. Self-discipline – It is I think the hardest to enforce, but if you trained yourself on the process you will be surprised on the amount of work you get done at the end of the day. So when you are about to get up for a drink or some snacks, just wait a little while more after you finish your task and you can reward yourself afterwards.
8. Answer phone calls and e-mails in batches – I always have a hard time ignoring my phone while working. This is especially true if it’s a family or special someone calling or texting me they just don’t get the concept that I’m working from home and not on hliday. They won’t stop calling until you pick up your phone. So try letting your calls go to your voicemail until you are ready to return them all in one session.
9. Reduce desk clutter – Get rid of all the clutter and the stuff you your desk that can mess with your concentration, like the mail, newspapers or your iPad. Removing these distractions will help you to work for longer and make every day of working from home more productive.
Following these tips will help you to stay focused on your work without the need of a boss to keep an eye on you. Remember that working from home is something many people dream of being able to do and a privilege. Just make sure you use your time wisely and stay productive so you can continue enjoying the work from home dream.

This blog started life as a resource for sharing business ideas for ways of escaping the 9 to 5 and starting your own business working from home. There are, however, also many types of offline businesses you can start at low cost and grow based on your own hard work and initiative. Starting a roof cleaning happens to be one of them. You don’t need to spend much on equipment to get started and the profits can be big. You can, in fact, charge up $1500 (£1000) to clean someone’s roof – a job that takes less than a day to complete.
The potential income you can earn starting a roof cleaning business are potentially huge. But as always, the key to success is doing your research before you start clambering over people’s fragile roof tiles spraying chemicals and rinsing them off with a high pressure hose.
Why do people need roof cleaning services?
You might question whether many people would want their roof cleaning at all? After all, who ever looks at their roof in between jumping in and out of their car? But there are a number of very good reasons why starting a roof cleaning business is an exceptionally viable proposition:
1) Leaving algae, moss and limestone to spread can cause permanent damage – rather than just an eyesore, algae, moss and limestone can dramatically reduce the lifespan of a roof by years unless they’re regularly cleaned off. These fungal pests feed on shingles, tiles and on the glue that holds them all together, leading to gradual loss and deterioration that will ultimately lead to the whole roof needing to be replaced. When you consider the average roof costs $15,000, paying out $1500 to have it cleaned makes obvious financial sense.
2) A clean roof can raise the house price – You can spend a fortune on landscaping, cleaning the windows and on the home’s inner furnishings. But the cleanliness of the roof is always going to be one of the first and last things potential buyers will see that will shape their opinion. A clean roof, free from algae, moss and lichen, will raise people’s impressions and valuations of a property.
3) Competing with the Jones’ – Nobody wants to be the house on the street with the grotty algae stained roof, when all their neighbours’ roofs are clean and pristine. Clean one roof on the street and you can look forward to a snowball effect as everyone else signs up to avoid being the neighbour letting the street down.
4) Add on services – Along with roof cleaning, you could also offer to clean people’s drains and the exterior walls of their house. You won’t need much in the way of extra equipment and you can raise your profits while still being onsite.
The best long-term businesses are ethical businesses
It’s worth noting that roof cleaners don’t always have the best of reputations. This is thanks to the cowboy behaviour and attitude of some disreputable roof cleaners. Some will say they run a roof cleaning business as an excuse to inspect someone’s roof before informing them that the whole roof needs to be replaced.
This is a service they’ll happily provide for an inflated fee. The fact is that in most cases all that’s needed is thorough cleaning of algae, lichen and moss. And in this hyperconnected world we live in, where reputations can be built and destroyed on the internet, it pays to take an ethical approach that wins you recommendations and praise from customers, rather than a smash and grab attitude of trying to hoodwink people into paying for services they don’t really need to try and make a fast buck.
What equipment will you need to start a roof cleaning business?
One of the great things about starting a roof cleaning business is that your upfront costs are relatively low. All you need is a pressure washer, bleach and detergent and you’re good to go. The trick is ensuring you know the pitfalls of roof cleaning and have a USP that separates you from the competition.
The first step is to avoid the mistake made by many roof cleaning businesses (and home owners) of cleaning their roof with a hose with too much pressure. Roofs are flimsy and fragile and using a hose at a pressure designed for cleaning chewing gum off the pavement (1500 psi or greater) is likely to do more damage than good. Instead, roofs should always be cleaned with a chemical cleaning system and then spray cleaned at a pressure that’s higher than a garden hose but lower than that of a conventional high pressure hose.
Creating a USP when starting a roof cleaning business
John White of Allclean Professional External Cleaning Contractors created a roof cleaning business that was generating $120,000 by its third year, putting his salary way above many of his former classmates with college educations and high powered careers in the corporate world. He was able to generate this income through being able to offer something his competitors didn’t – the ability to clean roofs without a high pressure hose.
White achieved this advantage for his roof cleaning business through his experience in the air conditioning and heating business. He used this knowledge to build his own custom designed pressure hose. What’s more, the rig he designed is able to clean roofs in less time and with half the chemicals of a conventional roof cleaning rig. This means he’s able to earn more money per hour while spending less on supplies, helping him to earn bigger profits than his rivals.
Get a step by step guide on how to build a low pressure roof cleaning machine
You can get a step by step guide on how to build a low pressure roof cleaning rig like White’s on his website. What’s more, you can find out which chemicals you’ll need and where to purchase them. He also explains how to make a ‘Roof Gitter’ for cleaning steep pitched roofs which aren’t safe to walk on and are difficult to clean using conventional methods.
The roof cleaning business is a relatively untapped market where you can charge high fees for a service with exceptionally low running costs and a huge potential market of customers. White’s guide to creating a low pressure cleaning rig for giving your roof cleaning business the edge over the competition is also sold with a two month money back guarantee. So if you aren’t satisfied with the information, and it doesn’t propel you towards earning a comfortable living cleaning roofs, then you can ask for your money back.

I’m sure in your entrepreneurial journey to start a home based business you’ve read plenty of books on how to achieve financial independence and follow the success stories of those who’ve made it big in business, like Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerberg and the list goes on. One key question that often crops up is whether to save as much of your hard earned money as possible, and play it safe, or invest whatever you can back into your new business venture. We were always taught since childhood to save for the future, but if you think about it even if you are saving since you are in kindergarten, there is no way you will come close to become a millionaire or even billionaire?
Saving is like planting all your money in one small patch of earth and waiting for it to grow. That’s fine if you’ve got millions to put away and the interest rates are sufficient enough to support your basic needs and lifestyle. Then you’ll definitely be living the dream.
But while there is nothing wrong with saving your money for your future, investing is how a lot of the self-made millionaires really make their money. Buying assets or launching new home based businesses is like planting your money in lots of different patches. Some of the places where you put your money might be risky, but it’s the only way to find those magic investments, whether in stocks or new businesses, that will help your income explode, even if you work from home, and accumulate much faster than what the banks will offer you.
So, would you rather save or invest? Both have their merits. But it is only by making your money work for you that can really start making big profits.
A smart rule for managing your money is to spend just what you need to cover your basics, like clothing, housing, food, utility bills, taxes and entertainment, and put luxury expenses on the back burner while you’re getting your home based business up and running. Whatever you have left over you can then invest back into your business or to get as much interest as possible in the bank. Keeping separate accounts for investing and saving can also be would be really helpful in managing your finances efficiently.

The Two Ways of Making Money Publishing Books on Amazon Kindle- The Hard Way and the Lazy Way
Kindle sales grow 120% every year, and overtook print a long time ago. If you enjoy writing (and even if you don’t), becoming a published Kindle author can allow you to boost your income with ongoing book sales
If you enjoy writing in your spare time I bet you sometimes find yourself daydreaming of becoming the next E.L. James or Nick Spalding. These two authors found their fame and fortune through self publishing on Kindle, particularly James whose Shades of Grey trilogy shifted over 70 million copies worldwide, plucking the struggling writer from near obscurity to becoming a global phenomenon.
It’s estimated that Amazon made up to $530 million from selling eBooks last year and sold another 20 million Kindles. What’s more, 15 of the top 100 best selling books were by self published authors, led by Nick Spalding in the UK, pocketing them each over $150k annual income.
It’s no wonder becoming a self published author is an attractive home based business. Your overheads are low (well, actually zero if you already have a laptop) and self publishing on Amazon is free, once you deduct their commission. All you need is a creative imagination to come up with a good story and the time, energy and skill to weave it into a literary tale people will enjoy reading.
But even if you cant string intelligible words together, it’s possible to make money publishing on Kindle without writing a single word…
The long way of becoming a self published author on Kindle
If you enjoy writing and have already had some glowing feedback on your short stories, starting a Kindle self publishing business is an obvious choice. Unlike other home based businesses, like internet marketing or drop shipping, you dont have to worry about setting up a website, SEO or need any complicated technical knowledge. All you need is your writing talent and a good story to tell.
The only problem is that there’s a lot of competition on Kindle to get your book noticed and building reviews. This means that writing the book is only half the battle. You then need to promote it on every platform and at every opportunity. Setting up a Facebook page and Twitter account to help promote your book is a good start. You should also consider starting a blog about your writing endeavors and building an email list. That way you will have a crowd of people you can immediately sell your book to when it’s ready.
Goodreads is a prime reading community to target. Create a profile and start interacting with popular reviewers with a large following. Then offer them a free copy of your book in exchange for an honest review. Just remember that popular reviewers receive daily requests from people, so it’s wise to take time to develop the relationship first rather than spamming as many people as you can. This will only harm your reputation before you’ve even got started.
Create a series so you can sell multiple books to your followers
Once you’ve built a following you’ll want to keep it happy, and generating profit for you, with more books. This is why it’s a good idea to follow the example set by Fifty Shades of Grey and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and to write stories spanning over multiple books. Then you can offer the first book for a low price to get readers hooked before charging a standard rate for the other two.
This applies to both fiction and non-fiction. Consider how you can divide your knowledge of a subject into multiple books, rather than hand over the whole farm in just one.
There’s certainly big profits to be made from becoming a published Kindle author. But with 1000s of people all chasing the same dream, you need to make sure you’re working on your marketing strategy from the moment you type your first word. In between bouts of writer’s block, find popular literary bloggers, reviewers and other people in social media with large followings in your book’s niche, and developing a relationship with them. That way, they’re more likely to agree to review your book and help promote you to their following.
The lazy way of self publishing on Kindle
If you hate writing, I’ve got some good news for you. There are many people making a healthy income on Kindle without writing a word. Instead, they find people to write the books for them and then repackage them as their own. In fact, this has been heralded as the easiest way of making money online by those already doing it. All you need is to know how to find profitable niches that arent already swamped, how to find good authors who are also cheap and then what tactics you can use for finding people to review your book so it gets pushed to the top of Amazon’s search results.
There are many courses that train you how to do this. The most popular one is the Kmoney Mastery course created by Stefan Pylarinos. He found a way of getting books written for a mere $22 which he could then sell on Kindle and earn an ongoing passive income. Using this method he created a catalog of over 100 books, which nets him a six figure yearly income. His method is so simple that he even has his sister and mother using it to get their own Kindle books published and making money.
Being a helpful kind of chap, Pylarinos created the Kmoney Mastery course to explain exactly how he does it so that more people can start home based Kindle publishing businesses. The course features 26 step-by-step tutorial videos which run you through the entire process. This includes how to find profitable Kindle book niches, how to create a professional looking cover for mere dollars, how to get positive reviews and how to scale your business.
You also get temples for explaining to your authors what to write, summaries of each training video and exercises that help drive you through the whole process. So you literally have everything you need to guide you through the entire process of getting your Kindle book’s written and earning profit quickly.
So if becoming a self published author on Kindle sounds like a simple way of making money online, why not check out the Kmoney Mastery course.

The Federal Trade Commission has yet again put an end to two companies that allegedly scammed consumers by promising them a considerable amount of income through home-based businesses. A company called The Tax Club was accused of selling services by allegedly falsely claiming they would help consumers to succeed in their home businesses. According to a complaint received by FTC, the company falsely claimed to be affiliated with companies that consumers had already bought services or products from.
The second settlement that was announced was for the American Business Builders for falsely selling a home-based business opportunity where consumers were asked for a fee between $295 to $495 that said to make a significant amount of income by earning commissions alone. The Tax Club and American Business Builders are charged with a fine of $15.6 million and $5.4 million dollars respectively. Aside from the fine, the operators and affiliated businesses are now barred from selling or benefitting from consumers’ personal information, and failing to properly dispose of consumer information.
You also need to be wary of work from home scams
How wide are online scams? From computer virus cold calling scams from India to online lottery scams and dating scams. Home based work scams were the most common on the web. The “get rich quick” schemes proved to be a hot selling bundle online. Most people don’t even believe if legitimate online jobs do really exist. Considering the kind of economy we have today, everybody needs a job and scammers do what they do best – making too good to be true job postings online that entice young and old people to fall for their trap, which can include making applicants pay for a training fee.
A legitimate job doesn’t make the applicants pay for the training; it is the applicant’s prerogative to receive compensation for every training or work he/she does for the company.
The internet offers a global marketplace for consumers and businesses, but it also serve as an easy gateway to various scams. What netizens should do is to stay vigilant against online scams. Be aware of those opportunistic scams you come across with. Do your research first about the company and do not ever divulge any personal and financial information. If you are looking for legitimate online job agencies go for those sites that have high trust ratings. Everyone should put up a scam-detection radar.
These are some positive indicators to watch out for if you are looking for a legitimate employment online:
- See how established the company that was hiring.
- The Ad should include the company name and physical address.
- The Human Resources Personnel of the company should be available for any inquiries.
- Company values and policies should be clear.
- A detail Job Responsibilities and duties is provided.
- Work experience and References is requested.

Online affiliate marketing has been around for over a decade, with Amazon its pioneer in the web’s early days. Affiliate marketing has continued to grow as a popular and financially rewarding way of doing online work from home, and is particularly worth investigating if you have a passion or interest you’d like to write about.
Affiliate marketing is simply promoting other people’s products to visitors to your website and then getting commission for every sale.
The process works like this:
1) Identify a niche or special topic you’d like to focus on e.g. embroidery, golf, event management etc. Your niche can literally be anything people are searching for information about online. You can use Google’s free keyword tool to identify what and how many searches people are conducting on your niche.
2) Create a website – The best and easiest way of doing this is to use free WordPress blogging software and to customise a template from Themeforest to suit your branding and niche. You should then start filling your website with useful, relevant and interesting information – not spammy junk! You need to attract readers through social media, as well as the search engines, and if your content is worthless then people won’t recommend you or stay long enough to click on the ads.
3) Drive traffic. This is arguably the hardest and most time consuming part. For your first online work from home affiliate marketing project it’s a good idea to target a niche with little competition in the search engines. That way you will find it easier to attract visitors and there are many ‘long tail’ keyphrases which your competitors might not be targeting. Other methods for driving traffic include promotion in social media (by setting up a Facebook page and Twitter profile), pay-per-click advertising (in Google and Facebook) and posting links in forums.
4) Add affiliate links. You can find products you can promote on Amazon or on affiliate marketing focused websites like Clickbank. The products owner should provide you with banner ads and links you can post strategically on your website to attract clicks. You then earn commission for every referred sale. Just make sure you promote products ethically and responsibly. Only promote products you use yourself and/or think would be useful to your readers.
As you might have gathered, there is a lot to learn about affiliate marketing. To get you started, there’s lots of information available freely on the web, and you might find these books useful (as you might have guessed, these are affiliate links):
So if you’d like to do online work from home running an affiliate marketing business, get reading and thinking about what niche topic you can write about and earn commission for selling other people’s products.
