Home Business Entrepreneurs Keep On Trucking

It is wise to stick with your choices long enough to see how they work. After you research your potential affiliate programs and services for your business and actually join them then dig in. You need to give them a chance because there are many factors that determine speed of success, etc., that are not even related to the actual program.

This can be the economy/consumer confidence, world affairs, the seasons and even the weather that affect all sales businesses to one degree or another either off or online. So this is one reason you don’t want to ‘fly off the handle’ if you don’t see results right off. (Not to mention to consider how much action you are actually taking consistently to promote your business since this is the main factor).

Check Mate

With that said as you build your business you should also be on the lookout for new opportunities to add to your portfolio of income streams. Some may be better than others in the long run so you want to have a few things going on not only to compare results but to determine which programs are keepers and which ones don’t have enough substance.

Remember though you can even make money in the short-term on those that don’t have much substance strictly because they are the new ‘fad’ and you will have the benefit of earning some commissions just by virtue of everyone wanting to see what is going on with the new program (if it is being promoted sufficiently).

You may find at first when a program launches that they put all their resources into heavy advertising, marketing, and holding online meetings, etc. to get people acquainted and excited. Naturally not many small businesses can keep up the volume due to costs for a long period, so that is when you may kind of see a slow-down in response as a result. Hopefully you will move into a steady stream from there and you can sustain your business.

In any case the idea is to give things a fair chance for as long as you can. Look at your own stats and reviews (with a grain of salt) and see what the world is saying. On the other hand if after several months you see nothing in spite of your efforts, etc., then maybe it is time to drop it and look for a new opportunity to replace it. The point is change is always necessary and good one way or the other unless you have found a goldmine you can depend on.

Temporary Jobs May be Just the Ticket for HomeBiz Entrepreneurs

There are almost always some sort of temporary jobs that you can get from a temporary agency. Especially when the employment statistics are dire with many unemployed and not many available jobs, temporary employment can really come to the rescue on several levels. It can tide you over with an income from regular short-term job assignments and it can even lead you to a company that may hire you permanently.

way 2 go

When companies may be experiencing problems and find it financially necessary to downsize, they may start to outsource to reduce costs. They still need to run the company and get the work done even though they may be filing for bankruptcy, or are in the middle of mergers etc. They are being forced to reduce or even eliminate staff through lay-offs or attrition, which is “the gradual reduction of the size of a workforce by not replacing personnel lost through retirement or resignation” (or lay-offs).

This often creates a terrible situation for the people who are ‘lucky’ enough to still be there, because they are sometimes given additional responsibilities to cover for a person who is no longer there. There is usually no corresponding increase in salary. This situation can really deteriorate into a hostile environment quickly particularly when you add in the element of fear of what will happen next.

The perfect solution though, is to create some temporary jobs and then hire a temporary agency to send people. The people have been interviewed and tested and will work for an hourly rate, with no retirement or medical benefits, and no binding contract.

Several industries have permanent working relationships with temporary staffing agencies, including nursing, property management, and office administrative and technical. The temporary worker is an employee of the temporary agency. The agency is central to every transaction both with the client and the temporary worker.

The client notifies the agency of the opportunity and then the agency proposes it to the temp that they feel is qualified. They negotiate an hourly rate of pay, specifically outline the duties of the position and approximate duration. If this is acceptable to ‘the temp’ then they are sent to the job site ready to go to work! The Agency pays the temp directly either weekly or at the end of the assignment, and keeps the change from what they charged the client for the services which represents their fees.

Temporary jobs are a win/win situation for all involved. The temps are considered independent contractors. They can choose to work temp assignments either full or part-time. They can make some decent money when they themselves may have lost their ‘permanent’ jobs and are in dire straits. Some job assignment durations can stretch from days to weeks to months and even years and often can be the ‘foot in the door’ to a ‘permanent’ position!

In case you home business entrepreneurs can’t see where this is going, working temporary jobs might be the perfect way for you to survive while you are developing your own business (to supplement the income that is not there yet). It would work really well for example to have a part-time temporary assignment with little or no commitment and to be able to spend the rest of your day working at home!
