Working Online Can Be Exciting

Knowing that you will be your own boss can be wonderful but scary too.

Sometimes it is Nice to Get Help From Others

I don't want to see people start out by themselves in the big world of online marketing. Working as a team brings results.

Together We Can Be Successful

Online marketing is overwhelming for many, but as a team we can build with our ideas put together. Following what has been proven to work for others.

Success Can Be Yours

You have to work for it and it won't come overnight, but success can be yours if you really want it!

Let Me Help You

Join my team and we can build together. I will help you succeed.

Welcome to Dawn's Work at Home Blog.

Hello and welcome to my blog! I have been online for over 10 years now. During these years I have seen a lot of scams that have taken a lot of money from many people. I started this blog back in 2007 to help prevent people from falling for these scams. A lot of good people lose a lot of money with the promises of instant riches. I want you to know that unless you win the lottery or something similar, there is no such thing as instant riches. You have to work for it but you can find success online when you work to achieve it. It will never be instant so please never believe in such claims.

I share different opportunities and tips. Tho most of what I share is free, it should be assumed that I am an affiliate meaning that I may be compensated in some way. I will only ever share legitmate tips, advertising and companies that I have experience with but please note that I may be compensated if you join with me.

Wednesday's Online Business Mistake - Taking Advice

Happy Wednesday! Time for another Wednesday's Online Business Mistake.  Today I would like to talk about taking advice.  When you work at home, you will see so much information about working at home from so many people.  Yeah I know you have to be careful not to buy every "guru's" book, I don't encourage you to run out and buy everything that will supposedly make you money online.  I also do not think you should run out and buy everything that says it will make your business grow.  So please do not think that is what I am going to tell you here.

Much of the best advice about working at home or running an online business is free, not all but you can get a lot of useful information free.  My mistake here was not listening to some of the bloggers and other people who are really making money working at home.  I mean people who really are and not just saying they are to get a sale or a referral.  

Bloggers like Darren Rowse at Problogger.net know what they are talking about and doing, these are the kind of people that I should have taken work at home and blogging advice from in the beginning.  He is really making money, not just saying he is in a quick sales pitch.  I love his blog and the advice he gives out.  I like to learn more (I learn everyday) from other bloggers and others who work at home still, but in the beginning it would have helped if I didn't brush the advice aside.  Some of it I figured I could do without or oh my blog is different, I don't need to do that.  

Granted I did learn a lot since I first started blogging in 2007, but if I had listened to the right people (not buying crappy information products) I would have been more successful early on.  Live and learn and yes - I have been learning from my mistakes! 

Long story short: If you find somebody reputable, somebody that is not just trying to sell you a work at home opportunity or scam, listen to their advice.  Chances are they are sharing tips that helped them be what they are today! This goes for any business, not just work at home businesses.  Don't run out and buy the latest and greatest opportunity, listen to the people who really know what they are doing.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
