How One Business Owner’s Risk-Taking Led Her to Find Her Calling

Pat Marshall Header Image “Working from home in my slippers, can’t find anything better than that!” This is how Patricia Marshall, the President and Owner of Parmars Inc., sums up working for her own company, a mini- call center that has partnered with Arise for over 15 years.

Taking a Chance on a New Opportunity

Patricia Marshall is what the technology industry would refer to as an early adopter. Her call center company is one of the first businesses that partnered with Arise. In the late ‘90s, Patricia found herself yearning for a way to earn extra money. As she was standing in the copy room at her full-time job, one of her co-workers mentioned this new opportunity to operate a small call center business from home by utilizing technology and other infrastructure offered by a company called Arise.

In the late 90s, starting your own company and working from home was not as common as it is today due in part to societal pressures to work in a traditional work environment and a lack of technology. Also, during Patricia’s research on work-from-home opportunities, she ran across a lot of scams, so naturally she was hesitant to pursue her co-worker’s suggestion. However, after conducting research on Arise, and learning that they were partnered with the local public school system, she decided to open her own mini-call center, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Start a Business from Home

 

Have you ever thought about starting a business out of your home. It’s not as difficult — or as expensive — as it may sound!

First step, ask yourself three questions to help define your goals:

1) What kind of business do you want to start? Is it a product or service? Do you possess the skills to make it happen? Give a lot of thought to what type of work would excite you every day.

2) How much time can you devote? Be realistic, and think seriously about your current routine to figure out how much time you can devote to this endeavor. Perhaps you have five hours a day while your kids are in school, or maybe you only have nights when your baby is sleeping. Will you focus on finding the time to give this priority? If you’re going to devote too little time or you’re going to find excuses why you’re too busy, this won’t work.

Make Money on eBay and other Websites

 

One person’s junk is another’s treasure and you could be sitting on plenty of gems at home. You can indeed turn your trash to cash almost overnight if you’re focused and diligent about diving into the work. It takes time to select the times for sale, clean and photograph them, whip up smart descriptions, and ultimately get them posted online. Be ready in advance to put in the time and you’ll benefit from the results. Here are some steps to help you get started:

Assess your possessions. Walk from room to room and ask yourself if it’s more important to hang on to things or to part with them to make some money. Go through each room several times to identify what you’re willing to sell. If you haven’t used it, looked at it or thought about it in a very long time, that item could be a candidate for sale.

Make Money with Google Adwords

 

Building a website and making money via online advertising is not just for kids anymore. Contextual or content-sensitive online advertising is on the rise. Last year Google says it shelled out $3.1 billion to Adsense publishers, up from $1.2 billion in 2004. Contextual means the ads have a relevance to the content of the website on which it appears, thereby increasing the chance of visitors clicking on those ads. When visitors click, the website’s owner gets paid.

There are four steps to get started.
