Work From Home Singapore & Make Money Online.
Hi there, Edmund here.
I often hear people wanting to leave their full-time job and want to work from home. Either they want to be a full-time parent or they want to work freelance so that they can have more flexibility of time.
Corporate work in Singapore is very stressful and most office worker like the idea of working from the comfort from their own home in Singapore.
They like the idea of travelling around the world and work wherever and whenever they wanted very much too.
Work From Home Singapore – The new trend.
In recent years, knowing that Singaporeans prefer to work from home, there are many companies incorporated in Singapore to tap on the Work From Home and Make Money Online market in Singapore.
Many of these companies claimed that they could teach you how to start an Online Business through their 2-3 day intensive training courses.
Through their active advertising on Social Media, they have started to create some awareness that anyone can learn how to make money online from the comfort of their own home.
This has generated a lot of interest among the young or middle-aged working class to start researching for ways to make money Online.
More often than not, these courses or seminars are usually not cheap and could cost 1000’s of dollars!
Questions to ask yourselves.
Will you be able to start earning money right away after attending the courses?
The reality is that you will not.
You’ll need time to build your Online Business just like any Offline Business.
Will your Success rate be higher after attending the seminars?
Yes, some will and No, some will not. This is the reality and harsh truth.
It really depends on how motivated and how committed are you to your Online Business success.
Work From Home Singapore – Are you ready?
You have to consider many aspects of life in Singapore before you can really decide to ditch your full-time job and work from home Online.
If you are married, have a house and supporting your spouse and children. You have to consider the finances that will cover your monthly expenses for at least 6 months or more. Online Business requires effort and time to build before you can start seeing a real comfortable income to sustain your expenses.
You are definitely not going to see any income in the first few months. Can you withstand that?
If you have a day job currently, I would recommend that you could build an Online Business part-time first. Once you gained the traction and the income has grown to a more comfortable level, you could then decide whether you want to go full time working from home.
If you are freshly out of schools, you might not have the heavy burden of monthly expenses yet.
Is your family supportive of you working at home? It is often perceived by our parents that we have to obtain a good degree and find a good job so as to survive in the competitive society of Singapore.
Our parents may not be internet savvy and does not know what is Online Business at all. They might be a concern if their child is staying at home all day and not looking for a job.
How are you going to convince them?
You see, there are other factors to consider, not just about yourself alone.
Work From Home Singapore – What to expect?
Starting an Online Business and making money Online is not as easy as everyone thinks. It requires hard work, determination, and grit to build a successful Online Business.
There are too many companies/gurus/products in this World that claim that you can be rich quickly by making money online.
A lot of people lost 1000’s of dollars even before they start making money due to the blatant scams out there in the World.
There are many scams online MLM companies out there that prey on honest and innocent people like you and me.
You have to be really careful of what you are jumping into. Do your own research online first. Look at reviews and testimonials before deciding whether you want to invest the money in the company/product.
Work From Home Singapore – Any Costs?
All business startups require capitals, whether Offline or Online.
For Online Business, let’s assume you start from zero, you’ll need to have
- The capital to buy your computer equipment.
- Some money to invest into good training and resources.
- To host your Online Business at some web hosting company that incurs monthly charges.
- Autoresponder services to handle customer service.
- Advertising with Social Media or with Search Engines.
These are most of the thing that could cost you money. However, the good thing about Online Business is that the startup cost is much lower than the mortar and bricks one.
Work From Home Singapore – Right Mindset.
On the other hand, because of the low startup cost, the sad reality is that people tend to give up easily too.
There is only a little pain of losing a small amount of money. They would say “Just take it as a lesson learnt”. and move on to the next shiny one that comes along.
When time passes, the pain is gone and they will move on to the next shiny product that promises them make quick money comes along.
Thus, you’ll need the following mindsets to be successful in your Online Business or even in life.
What mindsets are required?

This is an interesting post Edmund. I guess there are many ways to work from home other then Online Business. Online Business really needs effort and time to build, a lot of people gave up because they do not see any income within a short time.
Hey Kim. Yes indeed, there are many other ways to work from home.

I do agree with you that a lot of people gave up because of wrong expectation. They are “brain washed” by many online scams saying that riches can be made over night or within a short time. Some are already sick of being scammed again and again and became really skeptical of Online Businesses.
I definitely recommend anyone who had tried and failed many time to head over to Wealthy Affiliate University.
Unlearn everything you have learnt and start from basic again. You’ll be impressed with all the training, courses, community and tools in there. I assure you that if you follow the lessons closely, work hard and persist, you will see your Success!
I think this is a great, realistic article. So many people make blind promises that tell people all the different ways they can “make money NOW”, but the reality is that it will take some time. I found your article helpful, motivating, and providing realistic expectations. I’ll be back to see what else I can learn from you.
Hi Ben, thanks for your comment!

A lot of people seem to think that earning money on the internet is quick and easy. The truth is: it really isn’t. that doesn’t mean it’s impossible or even extremely difficult. it just means that people need to be realistic. It takes time and work to build up an online business. It also takes time to learn everything you need to learn. The great thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that every lesson finishes with actionable tasks that you need to do before you move onto the next lesson. This forces you to take action, so it means by the time you finish the training you will be well on your way because you will have actually done lots of things along the way.
Hi Marcus, you are absolutely spot on!
Due to false advertising and scam products are available in the Online world in such enormous amount that they created a false belief that making money Online is easy and fast! This is not true at all!
As you mentioned, “it takes time and work to build up an Online Business.” I second that!
Thank you for providing some insight to Wealthy Affiliate University’s training methodology so that my visitors here know that what we believed and stood for are true and authentic.
Wishing you success!
I totally agree with you that it takes a lot of hard work and determination to succeed in making money by working from home. This is true all over the world as well as Sinagpore. By listing what is “required” to be successful in working from home, you give people an idea of what they can expect if they pursue this.
Hi Deidre, thank you for your comment.
Yes, the keywords are hard work and determination to succeed. Learning and applying what we learnt from the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course is simple. That is just the beginning of a long journey to success.
You must have the right mindset and expectation before you jump into any Online Business opportunities. The FREE* Starter Membership is a good way to test yourself to see whether you are suitable for this business.
If you are really serious about it, you can then move on to the Premium Membership to bring your Online Business to the next higher level.
Wishing you the best, Deidre!
I’ve never really come across sort of Singapore based work online efforts before so this seems like a really new opportunity.
I am a little worried however about the price of the seminars you’ve listed here – thousands of dollars you say?
That’s a lot to invest in marketing training, especially when there are free options available on the market at present!
Hi Chris, thanks for your comment.
Yes, in Singapore there are many different companies set up to tap on this make money online industry. They come in many forms too. Stock trading, binary option and Internet Marketing to name a few. They usually charge a few thousand for 3 days crash course.
The only plus point I can think of is that the trainee can seek help directly from the trainer during the course.
Of course, one can learn by self-study. This requires a lot of self-discipline and the desire to learn in order to be successful.
Fortunately, Wealthy Affiliate University has training that is simple and easy to follow. One can start Free* to learn from the basic course. If he/she decides to learn more advanced training, the Premium membership will cater for their needs.
Wishing you the best!
Hi Edmund, a nice perspective you’ve given here with regards to making money online. I can relate to what you’re saying because I come from your neighbouring country; Malaysia. Where we come from, making money online and building an online business is not really a big thing and people are always going to question us for doing something like that. But, I did it anyways because I believe in chasing after what I want in life.
Anyways, thanks for the article. Nice meeting you.
You are welcome. 🙂
Yes, pursue your dream no matter what others tell you. Use your Passion, Commitment and Grit to build a Successful Online Business.
In the end, you can show the people around you who have once doubted you that you’ve succeeded!
Nice meeting you too and wishing you the best!
