How To Make Money Doing Strange Things In The Bedroom

A lot of people don’t know this but quite a few years ago I created a fan club for actress Mary Stuart Masterson. In fact, I ran the whole thing, phone, fax etc from a rented bedroom in a friend’s house.

After a while, it became her official UK fan club and this came with invites to screenings etc.

Mary Stuart has appeared in many movies. “Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe” with Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy, Heavens Prisoners with Alec Baldwin and many more. Her first really biggish film was as a child in the original Stepford Wives.

I would be fast asleep in bed when her New York Agent would call me or send faxes at 3am in the morning. It was a fun gig. I got invited by Rank distributors to pre-screenings of her movies in London and this bedroom-based fan club business did quite well. I had a lot of members all paying me a monthly subscription to get the low-down on Mary Stuart’s movements and goings-on.

Why am I telling you all this?

Simple, really. You can start a home-based business from anywhere in your home, or even from a rented room. You don’t need oodles of space and if you don’t want to, you never have to leave the house. Let the money come to you.

Most people are chasing money, commuting to work, and loading their day up with stress. We all know what stress does and it isn’t pretty. Why not start your own gig up from home, even if it’s a part-timer?

How To Make Money Doing Strange Things

A great deal of business success comes just from thinking you can do it. Think outside the box and bring out that bold streak that lurks within.. It’s really all about being confident enough to act your way into any situation. You see, Mary Stuart’s agent in New York did not know that I was running her fan club from a rented bedroom. You are as convincing as you decide to be. Business, any business is about being bold and taking action, even when it seems scary..

Today, if you have an internet connection and a smartphone, an iPad or a laptop, you have most of the tools you will ever need to run an online business. Gone are the days when you need office furniture a copier, fax machine, and a regular trip down to the office supply store for paper.

It’s much easier today.

The Internet has done away with most of the infastructure. If you are in the digital product business, whether that is selling a fan club service, books, courses or even newsletters, you can do all that without personally packing, delivering, or speaking to customers.

In fact, internet connection allowing, you can run a business from just about anywhere. I often catch the train between my current hometown of Chichester in West Sussex and Gatwick. The train has Wifi, which is handy for getting work done on the journey.
