OMG! 2011 is nearly over and I haven’t updated my website in nearly a year. I am still a very keen data entry operator and I still work from home in Australia. The last 12 months have been a real roller-coaster ride for internet based professions but, having said that, I’ve found entering data is still a very rewarding way to earn a living. As I have pointed out previously on this site, the chances of finding legitimate career opportunities online are difficult and getting harder with every passing nano second, but if you are absolutely determined to work from home in your own online business, you must remain focused on the job at hand and never give up. Australian data entry operators are amongst the most resilient in the world.
If you have visited my site before, you will know how frustrated I was when I first attempted to start my own data entry business from home. The most difficult thing was finding a company who outsourced its data entry requirements. After an agonisingly fruitless search I made the profound decision to make up my own data and enter it via this website. Who would’ve thought making that choice would change my life so much? Not me! But it did. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to work from home. Australia is known as the lucky country and, being Australian, I have enjoyed more than my fair share of luck. I think the most important thing to remember is to not get caught up in the processes too much. Just get to work!
I will always remember 2011 as the year I made the commitment to permanently work from home. Australia is full of budding data entry operators champing at the bit for an opportunity to prove their worth. A lot of them will be left behind unless they grasp the bull by the horns and start generating their own data to enter. The thought of making lots of money without putting in a lot of effort appeals to many. It doesn’t really work that way though. Career opportunities can be created by imaginative data entry entrepreneurs, no matter where they are based. A lot of people are happy to work in traditional administrative jobs but I’ve known for a long time that I want to earn a living while I work from home.
I used to drive for 45 minutes to get to my old job. I don’t miss that. One of the great advantages of working from home is being able to roll out of bed and land in front of your computer ready to work in your pajamas. A more obvious benefit to working from home and being your own boss is never having to worry about running late! It is very important not to underestimate the value of good typing skills when considering a shift towards a career in data entry. I’ve travelled all over the world and observed people working in all sorts of professions, but there is nothing I’d rather be do than work from home in Australia. That’s the bottom line at the end of the day!
How important is it to have a plan when choosing whether or not to be a home-based data entry operator? That’s a good question, isn’t it? Well, I think it is! I don’t think anyone intentionally plans to fail but by not planning you certainly do improve your chances of failure. I made a rough plan to be in a better financial position by the end of 2011 than I was at the beginning. I perform data entry from home because I have a plan that told me to do so. Without the plan I may very well have just sat in front of the TV all day eating breakfast cereal. Always remember to take a break from work every so often. No one likes a workaholic less than me.
Being one of Australia’s most talented data entry operators does have its down side. It’s hard to find love when you’re semi-attached to your computer. Even though you may possess magic, nimble fingers as a result of typing for hours on end every day, not many women will get to experience the wonder. That’s ok. I have happily sacrificed many things in order to work from home. Australia is a rich country with a very generous heart. I can’t emphasise enough how blessed I feel to be able to live and work as a data entry clerk in this country. I hope I never have to go back to the daily grind. I didn’t enjoy it for a minute!
I’ve never typed for a living before. I’ve never been employed as a typist. I enjoy typing. I type for fun! You can’t be a successful data entry operator and not enjoy typing. The two things go together like bread and vegemite. There are not a lot of jobs where the boss lets you work from home. Australian employers are nervous about letting their employees work from home. I am my own boss and that’s the way it will be for as long as I have a say in it. I’ll be entering data until all the data on Earth has been safely entered into its final resting place!
In closing, I’d just like to say that 2011 has been an immensely successful year for my data entry business. I’m still as keen now as I was several years ago. I live to work from home and I work from home to live! As long as I can perform my data entry duties from the comfort of my own home I will continue to perform data entry from home. I’d like to see anyone try and stop me! But seriously, why would I want to change anything? I’m living the dream! I’m working from home in Australia and that enables me to live a rich and fulfilling lifestyle. Good night!
