Giving Yourself A Pay Raise With Extra Income
Author: Ken Charnley

Extra Income opportunities are basically work-from-home opportunities that help augment your regular income. Many people are opting for these work-from-home opportunities for the following reasons:

1. Most people think they are losing the battle to balance work and family, time wise and income wise. If they are going to work 12 hours a day outside home and just manage to scrape the bottom of the vessel for survival, finally coming home to family too tired to spend any time with them, is it worth the effort?

2. A burning desire to be financially independent and successful by adding that extra income to their regular income with popular work-from-home opportunities.

The very fact that these extra income churning work-from-home opportunities have become popular is due to the above mentioned factors. These opportunities present a lot of flexibility in spending time with family and children, social commitments and of course financial liberation. These extra income generating opportunities also give you a chance to be your own master and work your own times.

How to find a suitable extra income generating opportunity? Here are some dos and doníts:

1. Analyze yourself and find out what your core competency is. Marketing, Writing, Programming or anything else that you excel in.
2. Analyze what your friends and family see in you, what they praise you for and what they criticize you for. This will help in narrowing down your options.
3. Try and find out how different or relevant it is to your regular job or work that you do today.
4. Ask yourself about the job satisfaction that you have today and you might have if you get a suitable extra income generating opportunity.
5. Analyze the skills that you possess but have gone unused since you have been working. Ask yourself, if you would be comfortable bringing them out to generate that extra income?

After doing the above, research and analyze the opportunities available by talking to people who already have extra income coming their way or use the internet to find opportunities that match your skills. Make a list of opportunities in descending order of your preference with at least 5 entries.

Get going in a small way, spending about an hour a day. Try it out before you commit to something.
Analyze if you like doing the work after a period of about 1-2 months and see the extra income you earn. If you think that the work is suited to you and the work has enough potential to earn you the extra income that you were targeting for, try to spend more time and energy on it to increase that extra income. If you see that you really donít enjoy it, shift the focus to the second opportunity on the list.
Remember these opportunities are basically work being done for other professionals and they have to be treated with professionalism and care. You cannot take them lying back and expect returns. The only advantage is that you will be doing what you love to do and get paid handsomely for it.

Extra Income Qualifications:

Itís time to ask oneself, whether they have the right qualities and characteristics to make that Extra Income. Extra Income programs do need certain characteristics to run them successfully. You have to be cutout for it. No one else can do it for you, irrespective of qualities. You need an extra income, you work off for it. Simple.

There are an awful lot of people out there al around the globe looking to make that extra income, and money matters. A few checks and realities have to be brought to the fore before you get into the rigmarole.

Meaning no offence to anyone, few people are better with a second job to supplement their regular income rather than starting up an extra income program. Itís not worth the effort for them to waste precious time and effort on the internet when the chances of their failure are great.

In todayís economy, employers have got into the habit (maybe due to hard pressed finances) of delaying raises, whereas inflation is faster to catch up with an individual. To make ends meet it has become essential that he/she looks for extra income opportunities at the earliest to ease out the current scenario and to secure a better future. Apart from paying bills, concerns of better living and growth are of paramount importance in ones life.

In conjunction, computers and internet have made it possible to bring people and work together to match their skills, interests and abilities which can be molded into the home business mould making it possible to earn that extra income without much of a fuss. Keeping the ease of setting up and starting off in mind, it is again advised not to jump. The extra income route is not for everyone.

Make sure you qualify the following attributes before thinking of the extra income route. Be honest to yourself while reading the following since this can make or break you:

1. Are you Goal Oriented? To be successful in any endeavor, one must have goals. Goals define the means and ways of achieving something. They can be set in two ways
a. The amount of extra income you want to earn in dollars.
b. The time you want to spend on a specific job to earn the dollars.
What, When, Where are three important specifics that you have to define before embarking.
2. Ask yourself
a. Can you afford the program? (The investment). There are some free startup programs also.
b. Analyze your strengths. What you are good at and enjoy doing?
c. The marketability of the program you choose.
d. How much time will it take to achieve your goals following the chosen program?

3. Courage: Instead of getting caught in analysis paralysis, get yourself enough courage to start.
4. Selection of the right program is very important. Match your strengths to the appeal of the program.
5. Have a good plan in place to market your program. Ask questions if you do not know, but a good plan is a must.
6. Do you have self motivation and perseverance to go on and on. Keep abreast and educated.

Once you honestly answer the above positively, it would not be really difficult to succeed, otherwise look for other alternatives than to delve on these opportunities.
