Work at Home - How to start a work from home business

Why does everyone want to work at home?  For me, it's because I love my family and I love my home.

Perhaps we long for the olden days where the family all worked together at home on the farm. The family was a team.

And we hate traffic. I'm sick and tired of traffic. Road rage is getting out of hand. Now people are even shooting at each other!

The Internet gives us a chance to bring the family home again.

So how do you create a work from home business?



Key step 1 to working at home - Focus on something you love, not money.

Find a niche' - discover a passion for something and do something with that.

That's how I got started with Freedrama.net - I had a love of writing and I decided to share my scripts with people for free online.

That is a nice lead into my next tip...



Key work from home step 2 - Create a website or blog and offer something free.

Don't expect people to give you money because you say your product is good. Give them a free sample of what you're selling. And believe it or not, you can profit from free stuff. Yes, free stuff can still make you money which takes us to...



Key step 3 for working at home - Use online ads. 


I have tried a lot of online ad services. Google Adsense is #1. My second favorite is Insticator.com because it works with Adsense and has a fun interactive element with Trivia and polls built in. Inticator gives you a great way to connect to your website users.

My third choice would be Ezoic. They have a lot of options and help you with website and ad layouts. 


Key work from home step 4 - Get the word out.

 
Ads won't work if no one goes to your website. Post about your business on popular blogs, bulletin boards, Facebook, Twitter and any other social network you are familiar with. Facebook brings the most visitors for me but if you have a good command of other social networks, they are worth trying too. 


If you are focused on local customers, Craig's list and Google business could be good too.
 

Then create low cost ads with Fiverr.com for as low as $5. Fiverr is a goldmine of resources.
 

And if all that doesn't all work...start a farm :)

"Books and Bug Zapper" romantic comedy for 2 actors - 1 male 1 female

“BOOKS AND BUG ZAPPERS” by D. M. Larson

(PAIGE is librarian reading a romance novel. WILSON comes in and looks around. She notices him and thinks he is cute and look in a compact mirror to check herself and sees something in her teeth. She picks at it as WILSON goes up to her and tries to look in her mirror - she notices and gets embarrassed)

PAIGE
Can I help you?

WILSON
You have any books about name robbing?

PAIGE
You mean identity theft?

WILSON
Yeah. That.

PAIGE
Let me see what we have.

WILSON
What are doing?

PAIGE
I was going to look it up on the computer.

WILSON
Oh, no. Don't do that. That's how I winded up in this pickle in the first place.

PAIGE
Yes, identity theft can occur on the web. I'm sorry to hear it happened to you. Did you give some of your personal information online?

WILSON
I was getting my new hunting license and they had to enter all my info in one of them computers now and they said I was somebody else!

(PAIGE is being flirty)

PAIGE
What is your name?

WILSON
Greg Wilson.

PAIGE
Of the Wilson bug zappers?

WILSON
That's right. I invented the first FDA approved indoor bug zapper. Patent pending.

PAIGE
That was the talk of the town a few years ago - so you're like a real inventor?

WILSON
I'll let you in on a secret. I kind of done it by accident.

PAIGE
Many inventors do. Here's a book about Alfred Nobel. He created dynamite by accident. Many great discoverers were made that way.

WILSON
Aw, I ain't all that great.

PAIGE
In this town you are. You're our local celebrity. Thanks to you, we can all enjoy bug free meals.

WILSON
You make me sound all heroic and special. I like that. What's your name anyway?

PAIGE
Paige.

WILSON
Paige what?

PAIGE
It's a silly name actually. I think my parents were being funny. Paige Turner.

WILSON
Well, you could get married and change it.

PAIGE
I'd love to get married.

WILSON
Yeah me too… just waiting for the right filly to come along...

PAIGE
What do you look for in a... Filly?

WILSON
I need a brave woman. A woman ain't afraid of a wild stallion like me who won't be tamed. She needs to stand back and let me be me. And be there for me when I need something, like a pizza or a back rub.

PAIGE
I like pizza.

WILSON
What kind?

PAIGE
Green olive and bacon.

WILSON
Bacon? Sounds yummy. How about mushrooms?

PAIGE
Hate them.

WILSON
Me too.

PAIGE
You ever try Joe's pizza?

WISON
Almost every day.

PAIGE
Been there yet today?

WISON
Nope.

PAIGE
Want to uh.. Meet there later... I'll bring some info for you about identity theft.

WILSON
You really want to help me?

PAIGE
Yes.

WILSON
I guess the library ain't such a bad place after all.

PAIGE
It's the best place on earth.  It's my home away from home. Growing up it was always my refuge. I could always escape here and discover something new… something that would take me away from all my worries and troubles. I am always happiest in a library surrounded by books.

WILSON
It's nice to see someone so happy with what they're doing. I wish everyone was like that. Too many people hate what they are doing. Life’s too short not to be happy. And today, pizza is going to make me happy. Pizza and you.

PAIGE
And me?

WILSON
And you. See you later alligator.

PAIGE
In a while crocodile.

(Wilson leaves)

Paige
I have a date!

(Shushing sounds and she hides behind her romance novel giggling)

Jock monologue for male

This is a monologue from an early draft of an upcoming project written by Shiela Larson.  This could be for a short film or used as a stage monologue.

 "JOCK" by Shiela Larson

SCENE 1
A lighter lights a cigarette.  A strong and exhausted man puts the cigarette in his mouth and inhales.  (Jock)  He begins to unwrap his hands, they are bloody.  Then exhales.

                              JOCK
                    Being an underdog is never easy.
                    This ain't "Rocky", we don't get a
                    happy ending.

          Jock starts rinsing his face off.

                              JOCK (CONT.)
                    You keep waiting for that
                    opportunity, to show what you are
                    made of...

          He looks at himself in the mirror.

                              JOCK (CONT.)
                    Then time gets away from you.  And
                    you are older...     

          Jock packs up his stuff from his locker then gives a quick
          salute to his manager and steps out the door.

                              JOCK (CONT.)
                    I've done my share of contributing
                    to society.

          A man is holding up a woman, she gives him her purse.  Jock
          casually walks over to him and beats him down.  Then tosses
          back the woman's purse.

                              JOCK (CONT.)
                    I feel like I was meant to have a
                    greater calling.  I mean, sure, I
                    enjoy beating the crap out of
                    scumbags.

          Jock is walking through a shady alleyway.  Some homie starts
          swearing at him and flips him off.  Jock turns around and
          glares at him and the guy backs off.

                              JOCK (CONT.)
                    I just don't want to spend the rest
                    of my life fighting off these low
                    lives.

          Jock stands on the sidewalk waits for traffic and lights another cigarette.  Then notices a scuffle across the street, he sighs, tosses the cigarette and begins to sprint over to the scuffle.
