I thought today I’ll talk about some of the advantages of teamwork within online business and its benefits in affiliate marketing. I will be referring to our involvement with Wealthy Affiliate, simply because that’s where our online business building block started. Surely this can apply to other legitimate affiliate programs too. Since joining Wealthy Affiliate we have found that it is invaluable to have a good support network to bounce ideas off and answer questions (that you will inevitably have) through your journey of building a website and starting your online business.

Working from home can have its advantages and disadvantages, and the question I hear frequently is “How can i separate work life from home life when i work from home?” How can I increase work-from-home productivity? For myself, home life is great – I love being home and I made the decision a while back; “Why do I have to make the dreaded trip to work everyday when I can work from the comfort of my own house?”. I figured that I would save both time and money on the commute, I could get up when I wanted, have long lunches and more time with my family…the list of pros went on and on. I thought how could this be a bad idea right? Well, as soon as I did make the transition to working from home I realized that distractions at home were in plentiful supply.

Seeing my wife has written all the content on our website so far, I figured it was time I officially introduced myself too. After all, we are in this business together.

The maths simply doesn’t add up. So for us, me going back at work wasn’t even a question. It was more a questions of how long we could stretch it before it was time for me to go back to the office…always wondering hot to get an extra income. We managed for 9 months, and I feel so blessed and lucky to have had the chance of being with our bub full time for that long.
Look, I am lying if I said it wasn’t challenging leaving Lucas crying his heart out at day care for the first few months, but I knew he was happy there (I always called to check 5-10minutes after I left, and he’d always stopped the crying and was happily playing) and we needed the money. I wish I had discovered the wonderful world of earning a living from home sooner, but thanks to Wealthy Affiliate we are now in a much better position to have a better work-life balance if we are to welcome a bubba number 2 (no, I am not pregnant yet;).
