Before the Internet age, our ability to work more than one job was limited by the number of hours in a day. We could only work one job at a time, even if we left that job and schlepped off to another, and possibly even another, after that.
The Internet has changed all that. Now, one can engage in more business opportunities than there are hours in a day. Automation and the virtually unlimited access to business opportunities across the globe mean time and place are no longer limitations to the home business opportunity. But should you take advantage of as many work-at-home business opportunities as you can?
There was a time when most people who took advantage of a home-based business opportunity did so at the request of a friend or associate. Other opportunities may have then popped up as a result of that business or as a result of networking. Still, the opportunities for getting into more than one business at a time were limited. For the most part, people engaged in only one business opportunity at a time to see if they could make it successful.
Today, however, with the accessibility of the Internet, you can be involved in more than one work-at-home business opportunity at a time if you choose. This isn't necessarily the best route to go, though. There are a host of reasons to stick to one opportunity at a time. For example:
*Running a home-based business can be pricey. To be successful, you have to promote and advertise your business. Getting the word out to all the right people comes with a pretty hefty price tag, especially if you want to be heard above the roar of the big guys. Having more than one work-at-home business and successfully promoting them all can be very costly. It can be very difficult to make a living in those circumstances.
*Taking part in more than one home business opportunity can lead to diminished productivity. If you have to spread yourself so thin that you aren't really dedicating yourself to any of your businesses, then you won't be successful. It may be better to dedicate yourself fully to one venture. If your first business isn't making it, then close up shop before moving on to the next thing.
*If you feel the need to jump from one project to the next very quickly, then maybe a work-at-home business isn't for you. Although this kind of work does offer flexibility in terms of schedule and workload, you have to see a project through to know if it will be successful.
There are many ways to make money on the Internet, but that doesn't mean you should dip your fingers into all of them. Find a work-at-home business opportunity that you can really run with and give it your all. If that business takes off, then consider adding another. Keep focused on your goals and you can be an at-home success!
