MARKETING REVIEW ~ by Linda Wilson
~ Elite Level Trainer for TW3
For well over 30 years, I have worked independently in either a Marketing Director position or a straight direct sales position, mostly in the financial services and high-tech industries. For almost the past 10 years, I have very happily from my home office, and there is nothing better as far as I am concerned.
However, I will say this right up front: working at home is not for everyone! If you are very self-motivated and a determined self-starter, you’ll probably enjoy working at home. But if you’re not it is probably better that you work on site.
What I love most about being self-employed and working from my home office is the freedom. If I need a few hours off for personal reasons, I simply mark them off my calendar and go. If I schedule a Dr. appointment or a vacation: it’s MY schedule. I don’t have to ask anyone’s permission or get anyone to cover for me.
There are huge opportunities for professional growth. Being your own boss gives you the chance to wear a lot of hats: sales director, marketing professional, strategist, business development manager, and more. This gives you insight into and experience with all the aspects of running a business, which, in turn, makes you even more marketable should you ever decide to return to a more traditional employee position. (But I don’t believe you ever would!)
Let me expand just a bit on the personal freedom aspect. If you’re used to spending hours in traffic to and from work every day, some of the most exciting advantages to starting a home-based business are your newfound freedom and the retrieval of lost time. The average American spends 348 hours each year commuting, according to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration. Suddenly with a home-based business, you have those extra hours to regain control of your personal life. Plus, there are no bosses, no dress code, no set work schedule, and no office politics to maneuver. All you need, as I already mentioned, is personal drive, discipline, and time-management skills.
It comes down to a decision on your part: is working at home and owning your own business the right choice for you? And if so, is TerryWilson3 the right opportunity for you? Only you can make that determination. If you have questions, or just want to discuss your decision, simply click the button on the right side of this page to schedule an appointment with me.
