Going from Employed to Self-Employed
I started my very first business when I was eight years old. I had a lot more freedom than some other kids in my neighborhood so I’d venture off with my quarters and dollars to buy candy and cookies for a penny (things cost a lot less back then). When I’d return home to enjoy my treats the other children in the neighborhood would ask me to share. By the time I was done sharing, I’d soon be out of goodies. So I figured that if I sell the other children a treat for two pennies instead of giving them away, I’d have enough money to by one for them and one for myself the next time I went to the store. It made so much sense I implemented my plan right away. When I proposed the sale to my neighborhood friends they were all too happy to comply. Commerce is basically about supply and demand so my business was instant success. It was easy for the other children to meet my requirements and for my to supply their desire for candy and cookies. I’d even help them to find the money by instructing them to go home and look in between the sofa cushions or ask their parents for a quarter. It was a win/win situation which is the foundation for a successful business relationship. They’d run home and come back with as much money as they could find. Since they couldn’t venture off to the store my ability had become a commodity. I’d sell them the candy and off to the store I’d go again to buy more. It was really great! I even taught some of the other children how to sell candy for a profit to their centers of influence.
I didn’t realize it then but I’ve always had the heart of an entrepreneur or maybe it was my tough circumstances that made me resourceful. I was a really poor kid, my mom was single and she worked all of the time. I had to learn to take care of my self. I’m sure many of you can relate to how tough it can be to make ends meet. As the years went by and I entered the working world, I longed for the sense of empowerment and freedom that working for myself provided me when I was a young girl. My ultimate goal in life became to be a successful business owner so that I could always have the freedom to do what I want with my life. Not only that, as I became wife and mother, I wanted to do this work from home to be closer to my family. My Virtual Customer Service Agency is so ideal because it provides me with a successful business model. I provide a service that helps others to earn money from home, provides opportunities, and gives me unlimited income! Every month without fail since I’ve started this business I make more money then the previous month! I couldn’t be happier with this business. My business is also a valuable resource and tool that helps others to achieve their goals of earning money from home! You never have to leave your home, your chair for that matter, to run this business.
In the past I was able to become very successful by recognizing a great opportunity like Russ Whitney’s Building Wealth Program or when I decided to learn how to sell items on Ebay and made over $22,000 in sales in less than 7 months. All that was great and I’m glad I did those things but even they cannot compare to what I’ve stumbled upon here. I learned about Arise Virtual Solutions from a dear friend whom I consider a sister. She shared her success story with me and after I researched Arise’s Virtual Solutions there was no turning back. I started my business and began building it immediately. Now, I not only work full time from home but I am building my own very successful Virtual Customer Service Business. I keep making a larger profit each year. Now my biggest concern is how to handle my tax situation. IJS
Arise Virtual Solutions is a virtual customer service company. They go out and get contracts with major companies like Carnival Cruise Lines, AT&T, Disney, etc. and contract with Corporations to provide customer service for these companies. They then allow these corporations to go out and hire their own employees to provide customer service while working from home. It’s called homeshoring. (Stay tuned for my next blog about this subject.) In this economy, I’m really excited to be able to be a resource to people that are looking to make more money, may be out of work, or looking for the freedom that working from home provides.
Within a matter of weeks after I’d started my company I had made my initial investment of $120.95 back and then some. Within a matter of months I had already made a profit. Now my business and company is growing at a rapid pace, especially considering that 1 out 5 business fail after startup. One of my biggest role models is another Arise business owner, Lexine Mitchell. She’s owned her Arise Business for over 7 years and her company earned over $1 million dollars in revenue in 2011. It’s an actual fact! Just look her up on You Tube and she’ll tell you herself. She has also been featured in many news stories and other articles.
Working from home has proven to be rewarding and lucrative for me so far but this privilege has not come without sacrifice. My first sacrifice was my investment to start the business. After doing my research on Arise, I learned that they are a legitimate company so I knew that it was up to me and my work ethic if I wanted to be successful. I knew with the right tools, the tools that Arise provides, I could grow my company. I also knew without a doubt that with conviction, determination, and hard work, I would see a return on my investment. After all, I’d done it before! As a matter of fact, within 30 days of getting started not only was my company earning money but also making hundreds then thousands of dollars every month!
My second sacrifice was my time, I find that I am spending anywhere between 20+ hours per week running my business. The more hours I put into it…the more money I make! Truly, since all of this time is spent working at home, it’s the least of my worries though. It’s a small sacrifice to make in order to live my dream!
My goal now is to continue to build this company and as I grow I want to share my experience and success with others. If you’d like to learn how you can work from home, please visit http://www.virtualworker.info and complete the form to request more information.
