Get a Job or Work at Home?

Thursday, July 19, 2007 at 10:30pm by Site Administrator

It takes a certain mindset to succeed at a startup business, though that does not mean you cannot develop it. The fact is, the sooner you do in life, the more likely you are to succeed as an entrepreneur. Here are five articles that might help you in your decisions whether to get a job or start a business, and whether to do the latter from home or not.

  1. Graduates: start a business or get a job?
    Mind Petals offers 5 reasons not to get a 9-5 job after graduating. They’re good reasons, and their premise is something I’ve reflected on many, many times: it’s far easier to work on a startup out of college than later in your life. That’s primarily because you have very few personal obligations as a fresh graduate.
  2. Moving a startup forward with no cash.
    Just because you don’t have a lot of cash doesn’t mean that you can’t plan your startup business and move it forward. GoBig Network tells you what you can work on while waiting for funding.
  3. Start a home business?
    Say you do want to start a business, and run it from home. Should you do it? Life Learning Today soberly lays out the pros and cons of working from home.
  4. Bootstrap a successful blog.
    One ideal business that you can do at home is to build a weblog. If you follow blogs, you’ve likely heard of Steve Pavlina, who focuses on personal development. Prior to this, he had a successful software business, Dexterity. His hard work with his website has also turned into a very successful business that he seems to enjoy immensely. And he spent very little doing it.

    If you want to know how he did it, read his How to make money from your blog, amongst other articles. It’s not a new article, but each time I come across a link to this article, I read it over again. It’s inspiring every time.

  5. Watch your posture.
    If you spend a considerable amount of time working from home, it’s quite possible your posture will degrade. Most of us don’t have as comfortable work chairs at home as we might in an office – which results in poor posture. Unfortunately, poor posture can affect our health. Dumb Little Man offers 7 postural habits you should develop. Speaking of good work chairs, check out this $4,300+ Netsurfer unit from Snowcrash [via Two Minute Commute].
