virtual vs reality

Defining Virtual Reality, which can be referred to as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated life, replicates an environment that simulates physical presence in… Wikipedia: http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_reality

Reality: Physical presence, actuality. This would be us sitting at our computers in our home office. This is where we need to conduct business. With our trusty Internet connection we have access to virtuality and the massive sea of information and opportunities.

We can learn how to drive traffic on the information super highway (in virtuality) right from home, instead of being stuck in traffic commuting to and from a job for unpaid hours every day in reality. Commuting is a total drudgery that contributes to the destruction of our sense of well-being because it is so much stress, always being in a rush, unable to go fast enough, stuck in a perpetual traffic jam.

If you have ever had to stay home from work for an extended period you will realize how there are so many hours in the day you may have forgotten existed; this is time where you can be productive in different ways as necessary, and alternating with having time to enjoy your space.

Do you commute one hour each way to and from work almost every day? Well if that is 5-days x 2 hours – you have 10-hours where you could be productive or do something healthy and/or extra for your family. So when you are able to earn income from home you start right out with this benefit.

There will also be money saved when you are not commuting, so along with your 10-hours put a couple hundred dollars a month back in your pocket (for example if you spend $5-10 a day for gas, bridge, parking, or mass transit it would be $100-200 liberated spending money!

Wahoo! There is more time to go shopping and more money to spend! Can you see this vs living paycheck to paycheck and spending most of your waking time working or going to and from your job. So this is just the basics and now that we are comfortable and happy we can get down to work and earning income from home!

That’s just Reality – there is no wealth without work. It’s not that there is absolutely no magic in virtual reality because actually there is plenty, technically speaking. Unfortunately money appearing ‘out of thin air’ is not either reality or virtual reality. No matter how lofty our ideals, we must take action to make them real.


Always Working at Home

When Roger Bannister, after breaking the 4-minute mile, was interviewed, (1956) he was asked to describe how he did it. He replied: “It’s the ability to take more out of yourself than you’ve got.” That is one of those quotes that you want to always refer to in order to stay motivated.

Can We Do It All? What a bizzy life to have a Day Job AND a Home Business, (not to mention family responsibilities). However sacrifices may be necessary, because it may be critical to have more than one source of income; AND it may just be a good idea (multiple streams of income) to make some extra money.

There are many different motivations for people to want to start their own business. For whatever reason, if they are willing to work hard, then they can have whatever level of involvement they want in their home business, or at least that which is acceptable and feasible.

We can only do so much with the number of hours we have in a day! However, one really cool thing about working at home is it is not limited to just day time (as in a “9 to 5” Day Job). You can work at night if you want or need to. We are on a 24-hour clock – not an 8-hour clock so we have plenty of time that is flexible.

If you are lucky enough to work at home full-time, you can be productive at the time that is best for you. You can stagger your hours so you don’t get in a dreaded rut (like going to the day job every day year after year). You can have your time go whatever way you want to, as long as you get your work done and it is a priority. You don’t ‘watch the clock’ when you are really busy and having fun!

Particularly if you are in a sales-based business, some days there is more business than others. So sometimes you can take it easier. Also after you get your systems developed for your home business and work out an organizational plan to manage your days and nights, things will go faster. Always in the beginning everything is harder until we get acclimated. Then it becomes more or less routine. What we do will become ‘second nature’ (natural) so there won’t be as much stress about functioning at a level that will produce success; and at the same time allow us to manage our lives in a pleasant, positive way.


Starting a Business – Do What You Love and Love What You Do

It is absolutely true that we do best at what we like to do. In your career you are very fortunate if you have a job that you completely love. This might only really be possible if you decided early in your life what you want to ‘be’ and took the action to get the education or training to do what you wanted to do. Starting a business is another chance.

love what u do

Many people see a job as only a means to an end – it pays the bills. They tolerate it out of necessity only. Within reason they are willing to put in the time and follow the directions to keep that position. Some will try to exceed expectations so that they might be promoted to a better-paying job someday.

If that doesn’t happen in a reasonable period of time, and they have confidence and self-esteem, they will make a promotion happen even if they have to look outside of their present company to find a better job. Or if you are very creative and brave, you may develop your own business.

Long gone are the days when people got a job and stayed there for their entire career, slowly and sometimes painfully ‘working themselves up the corporate ladder’. In fact in some cases when it comes to ‘downsizing’ or ‘workforce reduction’ in our economic climate for the past few decades, it is often those that are the higher paid or more experienced employees that are cut.

Unfortunately loving your job and doing your very best doesn’t count for anything when a company has decided to make changes. They do not see people – they see positions. It is hard for us to understand how they can be so cold, but ‘that’s business’. It’s about the bottom line, making the most profit and not about doing what is right for the employees necessarily.

So if you are in a position to start a business of your own, you might as well do something that you love to do if possible; or another way to look at it is to do what you have to do and love it. Sometimes there has to be trade-offs – so you may be required to perform some tasks you are not crazy about. To stay on top of this, you may have to enumerate the things you do love about working at home, and there is a lot to love.

If you are starting out and have to work a day job and create ‘spare’ time to nurture a budding business, it will not be as easy to realize what is so preferable about working from your home unless you really like what you are doing; or at the very least might be doing something in an industry that you find attractive or necessary.

Think about how great doing your work at the time(s) when you feel like it is, and having the freedom to do something else whenever the opportunity arises (and do the work later of course); think about all the money you are saving on transportation to and from a job – add it up – the gas, parking, bridge tolls, etc; then realize how much you will not miss the stress of commuting in traffic and all that this can involve, for example (the freeway that is more like a parking lot during rush hour(s).

Just these alone are major things to love about having your own business at home! In addition, you can enjoy the peaceful, quiet atmosphere and just the feeling of control you will have by taking charge of your own life; …and it would even add more impetus to ‘work it’ if it is something that you are interested in – for example if you can create a business from a hobby or interest that you have. This would go a long way to encourage you to expend your energy in that direction.

There is a saying that is ‘some people work to live and others live to work’ – You have to really enjoy working to set yourself up with a day job and a part-time home business – of course the idea there is to someday quit the day job and to support yourself entirely from your own business at home!
