MANY friends of mine work for other people. Take my husband, for instance. My husband is a police sergeant. He has a set salary (not including overtime) for working 40 hours a week. He leaves an hour before work in the morning and it can take him up to an hour to get home in the afternoon, so that is actually 10 hours a day-- 50 hours per week. Let's say that we take 2 weeks of vacation throughout the year: That means that he works 50 hours a week for 50 weeks in the year. If you do the math, that means my husband works 2500 hours outside of the home each year. This does not include his second job nor any overtime.
I don't work outside of the house, except when I travel for my travel business. And trust me, dear reader, that travel is going to be coming to an end VERY soon.

Speaking of vacation, let's talk about my husband and anyone else that might work outside of the home. If my husband is sick, he has to call in to work to let them know that he isn't going to be there. If he wants to take vacation, he has a set amount of time that he is allowed to take AND that has to be approved by someone else. If he has a bad day and doesn't feel like going in to work, he doesn't have a choice-- He only gets a couple of personal days during the year that he can use. If one of our kids has a recital or graduation or something and he isn't approved the time off, he doesn't get to go.
NO ONE tells me how I can spend my time. (Sure, my mother will offer her advice, but whose mom doesn't??)
One more thing-- My husband fills up his gas tank twice a week. He spends approximately $80 per week to fill the tank of our 2007 Hyundai Tucson. As I said before, he works 50 hours a week. Therefore he is spending $4000 per year to go to work.
Know how much I pay to go to work? $0. I roll out of bed and walk downstairs. I'm at work!
So many people ask me, "What's the catch?" Let me put this in perspective for you. What would you rather do:
A) Pay $4000 per year to drive to and from work, spend 5000 hours away from your home and family, have a set salary with no incentives except overtime, and have someone tell you when you can and can't take off work
B) Work from home on your own schedule and earn an income equivalent to the work you put into your own business
If you are interested in working with me and making some money - even if it's just for the holidays - contact me. You can send me an email or call me at 631.954.1919. I made $10,075.86 in 12 months, working 5 hours a week. That is $193.77 per week, which means $38.75 per hour. Are YOU worth that? Are you worth MORE? Let me help you earn your worth.
