Working From Home - Idea Generation
By Kelly Lowe
Believe it or not, most of the work force worldwide considers working from home at one time or another. Unfortunately, most don't have any idea concerning what type of work they would or could actually do from home, and even those who do know what they would like to do don't have the faintest notion as to how to get started.
The mind block concerning what one might do from home exists for one of two reasons. First, one might not have any idea as to what type of work could be done from home. The other potential mind block is that a person has so many ideas that they can't determine which idea is the most viable.

To come up with a viable idea for a home business, begin by realizing that there are two choices: a regular at home business or an online business. Sometimes, a regular at home business is operated both online and offline, which online businesses are usually just operated online, but may also be marketed offline.
Another option to consider is a work at home job, as opposed to a business that you own. In this instance, you actually are employed by a company, and you receive a paycheck from that company for work that you do from your home. Unfortunately, finding a legitimate work from home job is difficult, but not impossible.
Next, determine the type of work at home business you would like to start. You can sell your own product, sell someone else's product, sell your own services, or possibly sell someone else's services. This is the hardest part of the decision making process when it comes to working from home.

It's never a good idea to try to sell something that you have no interest in - even if it is a service that you might excel at. The fact is that if you hate what you do, you won't be willing to do it for years on end. Make a list of your interests, and include any special skills that you may have. Do not include anything that does not interest you.
From your list, determine what you are most passionate about - this is a market that you want to explore! Once you know your interest area, determine whether you can create a product in that market, or if you can find other people's products or services in that arena to sell for a commission. If you plan to have an offline business, you can become a distributor for many types of products. If you plan to have an online business, you can become an affiliate for even more products.
An affiliate is much like a distributor, except that affiliates never handle the product, where distributors most likely are required to purchase products from the parent company before they can resell them. The important thing to realize is that now you have moved from 'working' at home to owning a home business of your own - even if you are selling someone else's product or service!
