Work From Home: Take the Two Minute Commute to Your Home Office


Visitors: 146

When I get up in the morning, sometimes I go to the office without even getting out of the bed! I make my coffee, turn on the news and fire up the old laptop. Viola! I am at work! Life could not be sweeter! My dogs are sprawled on the bed around me, the cat curls up beside me, the kids come in and hang out with me and I can take time to talk to them and, most of all, listen to them. Working at home is a great life for those who enjoy the freedom of working for yourself, setting your own schedule and doing the things that you enjoy.

There are a number of work at home jobs from which you can choose. You can go the traditional route with data entry jobs, administrative assistant jobs, home typists and other clerical jobs. If you have special skills such as writing abilities, computer programming or web design, you may want to check out freelance opportunities. If you are an expert in a particular area, you can sign on with one of the online schools and create courses so that you can share your knowledge with others and get paid for it.

Many employment sites, such as 4 Jobs and others have areas in their job searches where you can seek telecommute positions and work at home opportunities. If you are just starting out and don't really know the ropes, going through a site like this could be a great starting point. As you do more and more work in this industry, you will learn more about working from home, get more leads and build your network.

If you are unsure about what work at home opportunity would be best for you, there are various evaluative tools on the market. A program such as Career Fitter can help you determine the direction in which you should take your career, regardless of the industry or type. Career Fitter is a personality assessment system that will match people to their ideal careers by matching their personality strengths and weaknesses as well as the core personality. This site also has a lot of information on different careers.

So, when you are looking for home job opportunities remember to start small. List your interests and go from there. Don't expect to become a millionaire overnight, but do expect to put in some hard work to establish yourself. As you build your reputation as a qualified, dependable employee in your field, you will gain more work and soon you will be working when you want, doing what you want and working from home.

Stephanie Partridge is a freelance writer, instructor for various online courses including My Universal Class's course Diet Is A Dirty Word. She is also the author of several ebooks and has compiled an extensive report on work at home opportunities.
