The value of a dollar seems to be shrinking, no matter how you look at it. For many, it may be necessary to have a second income. A part-time work from home business may be necessary to make ends meet and certainly to get ‘ahead’.
With rising prices, coupled with a slower economy, it can mean less sales for business and hence a freeze on wages. Although employment seems to be getting a little better, many are looking for jobs that are still not being created. There is a ripple effect that cuts people’s ability to ‘thrive’.
Oil seems to be a problem whether it goes up or down. When it goes up, that means that the huge percentage of goods that are delivered by truck will go up in price, since truckers need to pay more for gas. However currently the price of oil is down and the ‘market’ doesn’t like that and reacts negatively. At the same time It seems like everything in the supermarket has risen in price exponentially regardless.
If it is necessary for people to earn more money than their regular job can provide, workers do need some time to relax and have a life apart from their career. That ‘free’ time can be used productively if you develop a work from home business. Conversely, the idea of running from job to job and the stress to be on time in the middle of traffic gridlock and a dearth of parking may be overwhelming if you got a second job.
If you find yourself in this situation only time will tell if your health and family relations will be impacted negatively and how much so. Being able to come home after you leave your job, having dinner with your family and then turning on your computer is way easier, especially if you factor in the time you are not paid for traveling to and from two jobs.
The income you may be able to earn online is sometimes referred to as ‘passive income’. While this doesn’t mean there is no work involved, it can mean a great deal to you and your family when applied to the shrinking dollar and time scenarios.
‘Passive income’ can mean that once you have implemented your business plan, you would normally have a website or web page that is similar to a little storefront that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, globally. The ‘world-wide web’, due to the different time zones, provides potential customers logged on simultaneously in multiple countries.
In many online business models, such as online affiliate marketing programs or independent distributorships, the companies provide customer service and order fulfillment for the affiliate and there is no pressure on you to always be available. Once you get an arrangement like this set up, your only real job is to promote your business by Internet marketing and advertising of your product or service and you can do this on your own timeline – as long as you really do it.
