Waitressing Jobs - Great For A While But Long Hours Were Stressful On My Family


Visitors: 163

It was a chilly Sunday morning in March when I arrived at the restaurant that I had been working at for six years now. My feet were killing me from the 18 hours that I had worked the day before and I was preparing for another long day. My husband was home with the children again and he was getting a little tired of my being away on the weekends and not being home with the family. He was being kind about the whole ordeal but I could see it in his eyes that it was taking its toll on him. He had a stressful job and he looked forward to the weekends to relax but it was hard for him since he had to play mister Mom.

I knew that I had to do something I couldn’t expect my family to go through each weekend the same way. I needed to find another way to earn money and contribute to supporting the family in a way that would enhance our relationship together and not cause stress for everyone. A friend of mine mentioned to me that she had been working on a home-based business for the past two years and she didn’t have to leave home and go to a traditional job to support her family. The home-based business gave her the autonomy to take care of family necessities as they arose. Also, her marriage wasn’t stressed out like it had been when she was working outside of her home.

I decided to look into starting a home-based business of my own before the stress on my family became too great. I knew that from being a waitress I didn’t mind talking to people that I didn’t know, in fact it came fairly easy for me to talk to strangers so I looked for a business that I could start part-time from home and build it up to eventually replace my waitressing job. I found an interesting network marketing company online and then set out to find a sponsor that I could work with in the company.

The first step in finding the right network marketing company to work with is to find one with a product that you like. Since network marketing is referral marketing you will do better referring people to a product that you like and believe in than one you don’t.

The next, and quite possibly the most important, step is to find a sponsor that you can work with. Everyone brings their own set of unique circumstances to a project and some will be able to relate to your circumstances while others will not understand you at all. You will be more successful in your network marketing business if you have a sponsor who understands your situation and can work with you to build your business while being considerate of your needs. The sponsor is your teacher and coach for your network marketing business the better you are trained the more successful you will become.

It has been five years since I started my home-based business and I have never been happier. I no longer have to go to work and stand for hours nor do I have to leave my family on the weekends. I’d say for me that working on a home-based business is the best decision that I have made.

Take it from me if you are looking for a way out of the proverbial rat race you should really consider starting a home-based business, it is well worth the effort.
