How To Earn More Online

If you want to earn more online you need to ask yourself this question:  Are you doing too much to be successful?

That seems like an odd question to ask those who work from home doesn’t it? Surely if you want to earn more online there is no such thing as doing too much. When you are trying to build a business or income from home you have to be prepared to work hard and juggle 101 different things don’t you?

Well actually if you feel like you are really busy all the time and not earning enough then the chances are you are doing too much!

I know it can be really hard to juggle the demands of trying to make money from home with a home life.  Yet if you do it right it gets easier and easier with no need to feel like a headless chicken.

There is this really prevalent belief that the more you do the more you will be successful.  If you do more you will earn more online….

Everyone knows if you are not making enough money then you need to work harder, right?


This idea stems from the exchange time and effort for money principle. That is the very thing that most people who work from home want to get away from, so my advice is set it aside.  In a world where working 60 hours and more per week is becoming normalised don’t forget the reason you want to work from home in the first place.  For a lot of people that is so you can spend more time with family, be less stressed and have more time for yourself.

So I ask you again…

Are you too busy to be successful?

If you feel like you are meeting yourself coming round the corner, the answer is yes.

When you are spending every wakened moment glued to your phone or laptop doing some form of ‘work’ the answer is yes.

If your children can’t play with you because you are busy working, the answer is yes.

When you feel like you never get a break, the answer is yes.

Working from home does not mean being a slave to the business, it does not mean never thinking about anything else.  If you do it right then you should be wondering what to do with all the free time you have available.  You are in control of your time and what you do with it, not an employer, not an upline or anyone else.

If you are feeling this way and you are wanting to earn more online then I suggest you do the following:

Step Back

Of course you want to provide well for yourself and your family.  Working from home means you have the potential to earn an unlimited amount of money.  You do not need to try and earn it all at once though.  Step back from the whirling, spinning constant rush and constant work and something amazing happens.  Your brain has the space to stop and consider what it is you are doing.  You can start to evaluate what is working and what is not.  The fact you are doing everything the same but just more of it is not going to make you successful, you need to be selective in your approach.

Better is a handful of rest than two handfuls of hard work and chasing after the wind….

When you step back from the situation and rest you have time to think clearly and consider your goals properly.  You can plan an activity that relates to your goal and you can carry it out with focus.  You have time to acknowledge the result from that activity and to witness what went well and what didn’t.

This is exactly what happened for me when I stopped working constantly on surveys and other casual earning sites.  I realised I had given myself no time to enjoy life and all I was doing was working.  When I needed a good distraction from my anxiety etc I found this worked well and of course it was beneficial too.  However, when I set myself the limits of working for just 1 hour per day I made more progress than I ever had before.

Do One thing Well

Have you ever heard the saying “Jack of all Trades and Master of None”? When you try to do lots of things at once you just can’t do them well, its that simple.  When you work from home you do need to be able to do a lot of different things, but don’t try to do everything at once.  Focus on learning how to do one thing well instead of 10 things badly and you will see much better results.

Building a business is not an overnight mission!

Make Sure Your Actions are Goal Related

If you do not have clear goals set then the chances are you are just doing a lot of things in the hope that some of it will work.  By taking the time to give yourself particular goals to work on you can make sure you are moving in the right direction.  Only about 5% of work from home activities will guarantee that you will earn more online, the rest is fluff that clogs the engine!

To make sure you are working on the right goals to move you forward and help you earn more online you need a goal related plan.  I explain how to do that in How to Make Sure You Make Progress Towards Goals.

Stop Wasting Time and Energy

We all do the whole faffing around thing – I am as good at procrastination as anyone else.  However I am also good at knowing exactly when I am doing it! Only when you are aware of your actions and can identify the things you do that waste your time and energy will you be able to stop doing it.  Ask yourself on a regular basis “Is what I am doing right now helping me to earn more online?” If the answer is not a resounding yes then it is getting in the way.  For some things you could think what you are doing will help you earn more online, but how do you know for sure?

Monitor Your Progress

You will know for sure if what you are doing is moving you forward only if you monitor your progress.  I have provided a Daily Earning Tracker Downloadable to assist you with this!

in summary, the best thing you can do to help you earn more online is to make sure that your actions are getting results.  If you are too busy running around doing 101 things without giving yourself the time to stop and plan and monitor your progress you are wasting a lot of time and energy getting no-where.
