I work really hard when it comes to running my business. I also stay fully involved and committed to my family. So, when people I don’t know ask me to hire them through social media, you can guarantee it’s a no…but every once in a while, I’ll offer to look at a writing sample or a resume and give advice. Because as hard as it is to run a business, it’s equally hard to get started.
So, I said…send me a writing sample. I received that as expected and I responded and asked several questions. Lo and behold – no answer. Reason #1018 that people fail at working from home? They’re flaky. People want to work from home until they figure out it’s actually work.
If you’re a flake, if you’re lazy, if you have no self-discipline…you will not successfully work from home.
