5 Tips To Be A House Husband

House Husband
from luckypictures


It has been a while I have last updated my wedding blog. My apology.

It has been a roller-coaster ride for my life for the past few weeks.

I am preparing myself to be a house-husband when my first child comes. So that is why I am working really hard to set up my home business.

Being a husband and a bread-winner, it has never been easy. In Asian context, a man “must” have a successful career to be termed as “successful”.

Hardly anyone around us knows the meaning of “house husband”. Most have never heard it before. lol.

At this point in my time, the feelings for this big transition is kinda of confusing. On one hand, I am having my dream job and to me, it is never a job. It is fun!

While building up my own online business, it has been fun too and I am still enjoying it.

I know many of you are preparing your wedding and money drains out of your pocket like nobody’s business. And one of the fastest ways to make more money to your bank account is to start your own business.

(When I say “fastest”, I do not mean like within a day or two. It may takes months to build the business and stabilise it so that it is profitable.)

Anyway, here are 5 tips you can easily follow if you want to work from home so that you can spend more time with your family.

1. Start now
I know many of us are busy. So am I. Remind yourself why you want to work from home.

Write on a piece of paper and stick on the wall where you can see it everyday.

And start working on it now. It need not necessary be selling digital products. You can be selling physical products. Just watch ebay. It is a good place to start with.

2. Be disciplined
It is never easy to start a business at home, especially it is in your cosy little home near your cosy little bed.

There is a temptation to wake up late or spend more time watch TV than usual.

Or you could spend most of your time working and end up spending less time with your family.

So what is helpful is that you can create a daily schedule and be disciplined to stick to your plan.

3. Start small
It is important to start small and humbly. There is no magic wand to help you create a multi-million dollar overnight.

You need to start now and start small. Start selling something which you know how to.

Start getting a small group of customers. Manage them well and treat them well.

4. Quit only if…
Many quit their job when they have yet to set up their business and have yet make a single cent.

The rule of the thumb is your gross profit for your online business must be at least 1.5 times of your gross salary.

5. Start off with your passion
The journey is going to be long and tedious.

It is a business building after all and Rome was not built in a day.

Start off with something which you enjoy and it will help you sustain longer.

Perservere and push on.

    In September of 2008 I decided to quit my day job and start my own business from home. I have to say I have never been happier and I am actually making more money now that I ever have in my life.

    I have more time to spend with my family, especially my daughter. She goes to grandma’s house during the day while I work, but I get to pick her up and bring her home and just enjoy her.

    So if your thinking about being a house husband, I say go for it. Theres nothing wrong with a man staying home and taking care of things.

    Short and sweet tips, Jhong. One of the main reasons I intend to make my income from home is so that later I can have a family too and not only be able to care for them financially. But also with time and attention! So after a couple years of work a nice passive income stream is what I’m shooting for.

    Right now I’m in my 4th month online and lack a little bit in the 2nd compartment (Be disciplined). Sometimes I procrastinate or fall into the trap of getting distracted on the internet. After all, so much things are happening in this world and its hard to keep on the ball with all the information that floods us. I already prioritize to focus on the positive stuff but those things can be a real jungle too. I only say “internet marketing”! lol Anyway, great blog and thanx for the motivation.
