Work From Home for Dads

Work From Home Dad

Hello fellows! I decided to write this article at 1:30 in the morning on a Sunday night in order to share my business(es) with you guys (and hopefully drive some of you to make a change for yourselves, since anyone can do what I do)! Both of these businesses can be done from your couch, making them ideal for work from home dads! The way I see it, just because you’re a stay at home dad doesn’t mean that you can’t also be a working dad. You just need to change the what and the where; namely what you do and where you do it from. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get all “salesy” on you gents. I am, however, going to ask you to think about several things that may seem silly and/or uncomfortable at first (don’t worry, I will tie it all up in a neat bow at the end, I promise!). There are three questions I have for you:

# 1: Would having more money make you more comfortable?

More Money

I know, I know; it sounds like a BS question. Before you click away from this page, though, hear me out! I asked this question so you would honestly search yourself for the driving factor behind your angst. Some guys are just not cut out to be stay at home dads, while others are satisfied with the padding their bank account has. If you’re already comfortable with your current income, none of these opportunities are unlikely to work for you. Why? Two reasons:

  1. These aren’t “get-rich-quick” schemes. You’ll have to work for your money. Sorry, fellow dads, the patriarchy left us out to dry on this one, too. That’s one of the rules of life: nothing worth having is easy to get. However, if you want something, and you’re willing and able to work for it, you can have almost anything.and..
  2. Necessity drives achievement. If you need to make $100 by the end of the week to keep your lights on, you’re far more likely to achieve this than if you just “want some more spending cash.” Regardless, the question isn’t “Will you make money doing this.” The question is “How much money will you make doing this.”If a lack of funds isn’t a source of your discontent, you can leave now without fear of missing anything. If, however, you truly feel like your current level of savings and spending cash is putting a cramp on your happiness, then read on.

#2: Are you able to follow well laid out directions?

No, I am not being smart or facetious; this is critical. So many times in my business I have tried to help others achieve a life changing residual income; laying out the steps that they needed to take in order to get this result, even breaking it down into manageable tasks, only to have them try to take matters into their own hands, rush the process, and ultimately, fail. If you’re a genius level individual, I respectfully ask you to keep it moving, and use that IQ to save the planet, cure diseases, and end world hunger.

If, however, you’re fairly intelligent (and you most likely are, since you’re here), and able to keep it simple, then read on! If you do what I did, you’ll get what I got!

 

#3: How hard are you willing to work to get it?

Hard work pays off

I have learned in my 34 years on Earth that people either work hard to make a change, or they work just as hard to resist it. As I previously stated, these are not get-rich-quick schemes. These are businesses. Like any other business, individual effort is the single most important factor in predicting success. You are building a future for yourself and your family. Because I want to be successful at what I do, I am putting in some extra time, and writing this article in the early morning hours. I knew that being a dad was going to be the single most challenging, frustrating, rewarding experience of my life. There’s one thing, however, that makes any situation in life harder: lack of money. No one likes being broke. Stay at home dads are no exception to this rule. I want to be a role model for my sons, and show them that their dad is a determined individual who rose above the challenges that life gave him, and thrived in spite of everything that was against him. If you want to do the same thing, you should check out the following two business opportunities!

 

 

#1 – Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Put simply, Wealthy Affiliate is a community-oriented website building tool and group of online entrepreneurs that will teach you how to make money online. I can’t speak highly enough about this program. It will teach you, from start to finish, how to build a website, monetize it, and profit from it. There are literally tens of thousands of other Wealthy Affiliate members around the world, and we’re all rooting for each other! The internet has made working from home not only possible for anyone and easier than ever, but also a viable source of income for almost anyone.

Breakdown:

Pros:

  • Incredibly low start-up cost – $19 for the first month; $49/month thereafter
  • No hidden fees
  • Unlimited world-class training
  • No technical knowledge required
  • Up to 50 websites
  • Affiliate Programs are gathered in one easily searchable database, organized by niche (what your website is about)
  • Work from anywhere, anytime
  • Income Potential is unlimited
  • Multiple ways to earn
  • Passive Income – You don’t have to talk to anyone to make money
  • Work as often (or as little) as you’d like

Cons:

  • Takes time – no immediate bonuses
  • Takes some wordsmithing skill – content is key (no one will willingly visit a poorly written web page)
  • Your customers have to find you; not the other way around.

# 2 – Kynect

Kynect

What is Kynect?

Kynect is, at its heart, an energy retail company. Formerly known as Stream, it is based out of Texas, and now sells electricity in over a dozen states. Around 2015, we took our services nationwide by offering cellphone service for an extremely competitive rate (around $45/month for unlimited everything– high speed data included). For $200, you can become an Independant Associate, and make money every time one of your clients pays their electricity and/or cell phone bills. You’ll earn one-time bonuses at 5, 7, 10, 15, and 20 customers (the list goes on), you qualify for free electricity at 15 customers, you can qualify for leadership bonuses as you help other associates that you brought into the business promote through their tiers, qualify for all expenses paid vacations, cars, and more. If you’re an outgoing person, you’ll do well with Kynect.

Breakdown:

Pros:

  • Excellent one time bonuses, triggered frequently.
  • A North American direct selling top 20 organization
  • 100% debt-free, BBB rated A+ company
  • Excellent leadership team
  • Many meetings for support (both in person, and online)
  • Fast ROI – when I started with Kynect (then Stream), I made my $200 back in less than 24 hours
  • Unlimited Earning Potential
  • Multiple ways to earn
  • Leadership bonuses
  • Residual Income
  • Sell services that everyone uses (electricity and cell phone service)
  • Work as often (or as little) as you’d like

Cons:

  • Higher initial startup cost ($200 vs. $19)
  • Operates solely on WOM (word of mouth) advertising
  • Active Income – you have to meet with people, and hear a lot of ” No’s” before you get a “Yes”
  • Market is becoming increasingly saturated
  • Many customers have a “bad taste” in their mouths from other energy suppliers who shafted them

So, which one should you choose?Which way

That depends on several factors:

  • What type of person are you? – If you’re shy, introverted, or are otherwise uncomfortable talking to people, you should give Wealthy Affiliate a try. Kynect is a great company, but, selling anything is a contact sport: The more people you contact, the more sales you’ll make!
  • What kind of person aren’t you? – If you’re not a naturally helpful person, not a friendly person, or are otherwise antisocial in any way, then you should definitely not choose Kynect, but you should probably not do Wealthy Affiliate, either. I’m not busting your stones, I just don’t want you to waste your time (and money) on opportunities that are unlikely to help you achieve financial success, nor that you’ll find rewarding. Remember: People can almost always spot a person who is genuine, and who believes in what they’re doing.
  • What are your financial needs and goals? How quickly do you want to accomplish them? – If you’re just about the bottom line, and you’re comfortable talking with people, some of whom you don’t know, Kynect is the company for you. You’ll make a lot more money a lot more quickly. Wealthy Affiliate is more of a long game approach to earning residual income.
  • What do you enjoy? – All the money in the world isn’t going to increase your happiness if you’re miserable doing whatever it is you’re doing to get the money. If you enjoy writing, as I do, you’ll want to go with Wealthy Affiliate for the long haul.

So, how do I get started with these opportunities?

Longest Journey

You’ve read this post, and you’ve decided to give one (or both) of these opportunities a try. Don’t feel like you have to, or even should, do both. In fact, personally, I recommend that you choose one of them, stick with it for at least a year, and if after that year, you’re not feeling it, then you can either cut your losses and switch, or you can do what I did, and double dip. I know several multi-millionaires in both industries. The most important thing is to carefully consider the type of life you envision for yourself, and which of these businesses will best allow for that.

The longest journeys start with a single step, and so it is with these opportunities. If you’re ready to take that first step, first of all: congratulations are in order!  I am genuinely excited for you! Secondly, know this: You’re not proposing to your future wife here; you’re just dating an idea. If you end up not liking the choice you made, then you’re absolutely free to change your mind at any point, no strings attached.
