Many of our readers are looking for a good way to make the transition from the “Rat Race” to doing some kind of work from home. Quitting your “9-to-5″ can be a scary leap of faith if you don’t have an alternate source of steady income lined up. That’s why I want to tell you about a work-from-home opportunity that could very well be just what you’ve been looking for to make that move. What I’m going to fill you in on today is a legitimate work-from-home job that pays well, allows you to set your own hours, and doesn’t require you to sell anything or answer phones. If you’re thinking “too good to be true,” I get it. I was scammed by “work from home opportunities” more times than I care to mention before I found this company. However, I can tell you this one’s legit because I’ve been working for Lionbridge as an Internet Assessor for over a year now. If this is the type of opportunity you’ve been looking for, this is a great time to apply for a position with Lionbridge because they have recently stepped up their recruiting efforts and also created a new work from home position. Read on for all the details.
How’s your discipline? Mine sucks. Yet I’ve still managed to start a business and launch a blog. And I’m working on my first ebooks. What really sucks, though, is that I probably could be further along with all my business activities if I had better discipline. Even with a 40-hours-per-week day job, I could get so much more accomplished if I were more focused, more organized, and more responsible with my time.
So I’m here to give you a warning…and an invitation. It takes a special breed of person to start an online business and not succumb to blog-fade (where you slowly stop posting until your blog is just a memory…a bad memory). Continue reading
Listen up, all you Internet business information junkies out there! It’s time for a little cold, hard reality; time for a slap in the face; time for some tough love.
How long have you been thinking about starting a blog or even an Internet business empire? How long have you been reading all the blogs from all the gurus of Internet business? You’ve been devouring all the latest business podcasts and you’ve sunk quite a few dollars into books, online courses, and all the latest whiz-bang techno-gadgets designed to help you get your blog and Internet business going fast.
Yet, here you are, still consuming more information, still planning, still brainstorming…and still no business. Continue reading
Wow! Where did 2010 go? Hard to believe we’ve put another year behind us already! We decided to give everyone kind of a general idea of the progress we made in 2010, and what our plans are for our internet businesses in 2011. If you missed it, you can read Scott’s entry here. In this post, I’m going to fill you in on what’s going on in my world; the successes, frustrations, craziness, indecision, and plans. But we’d also love to hear from you. How did you do in 2010? Did you make any progress toward escaping the Rat Race? Got big plans for 2011? Spill it…we want all the juicy details!
Since we started this blog, we’ve been trying to keep you all up to date with our activities to let you know how close we are to becoming a couple of quitters. If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that this blog serves as a journal for us as we strive to start Internet businesses and make enough money to be able to quit our day jobs. The blog also allows us to share what we learn in the form of tools, tips, and lessons gleaned from our experiences.
The Blog Launch
Last year on Independence Day (here in the US, that’s July 4th), I launched behaviorandmotivation.com. In case you’re wondering, yes, I did choose to launch on that day for symbolic purposes. Since I still have a day job and work 40 hours per week or more, I’ve learned a few things about the entire process of becoming an Internet Entrepreneur. I’ll share some of those lessons in a future post. For now, I want to bring you up to speed. Continue reading

I’m gonna let you in on a secret of mine. Don’t tell anyone else okay? I suck at the whole “getting stuff done” thing. Not just a little. I mean like 13 shades of suck. I was born without the “time management” gene. I truly admire people who can juggle work, kids, hobbies, and 5 to-do lists and still have time to pee and sleep. Amazing. I’m not one of those people.
If you can relate, then read on. I may have (finally!) found a solution to help me get on track, stay on track, and get things done before the proverbial “hell freezes over” scenario. If you’re struggling with getting things done, maybe it’ll help you out too. No affiliate links here, just a really awesome program I found that I wanted to pass along to you in case you’re struggling with time management.
