Step One. Quit your job and tell your friends, "I'm going to make a million dollars!"
It's important to be realistic about your abilities to earn money quickly when you work-at-home. If you're telecommuting (this means you are working for a regular company and just using technology to communicate from home). Your paycheck will be in line with similar 9-to-5 jobs.
If you want to pursue new business opportunities such as working from home in a franchise or small business then it will take time to start earning money.
Step Two: Believe all the get rich quick claims on the Internet.
Is it really possible to earn $5,000 a week stuffing envelopes from your living room?
Do your research. Make sure you don't believe the hype. See if you can find more realistic opportunities that have a chance of success.
Step Three: Tell your spouse that you will have your new job in the next couple of days.
Just like searching for a traditional job, it can take weeks or months to find the perfect work-at-home job. It is important that you set realistic timelines to get your new job. Don't set yourself up for failure and high expectations from your spouse. Allow yourself time to check out and test the opportunities.
Step Four: Purchase the best and most expensive computer equipment for your new work-at-home job.
I always tell job searchers to be cautious and frugal with their money. See if you can get by for a while with old or used computer equipment and office furniture until you know your new work-at-home job is stable. You may need funds later if the job doesn't work out or the business opportunity makes less money than you expected.
Step Five: Don't bother to customize your resume.
First things first, it is a necessity that you write a resume and have it handy! You may have to use it when you're doing your job search. So, it can be very important for you to have your resume ready and available. Knowing your job history and your accomplishments will come in handy when you're interviewing.
If you are applying for a job that requires a resume, then modify your resume to ensure that it accurately addresses the new opportunity.
So there it is, these are only a few ways you can mess up your work-at-home job search. Don't worry. I've messed up in so many ways that I've made enough mistakes for both of us!
