Working at Home - Leave the Office Grind Behind & Work at Home
By Thomas Childs
Working at - Leave the Office Grind Behind & Work at Home
Whether downsized, outsourced, or sick and tired of cubicle hell, more people are earning their living by working at home. The work at industry is booming with a diverse lot of income earning opportunities. People of all skill and education levels can find a niche in this market.
Technology has enabled former office rats to do their work at home. Armed with a computer, fax, and telephone, employees from back office data entry to management staff are able to perform part or all of their jobs at home. The telecommuting option is appreciated by workers as it allows them more freedom and control over the work day and more time to spend with families. Companies find that this set up often improves employee morale and productivity.
Earning money via the Internet has become an increasingly popular option in the work at industry. Chances are you know someone who sells merchandise on eBay. Many online merchants are working out of their homes. The Internet offers a wealth of opportunities for writers to earn a living at the keyboard. People with an Internet-based career often start on a part-time basis while working their regular office gig. Once their "web job" takes off, they escape the office
grind for full-time work at home.
Another option in the work at industry is a home-based business where you go out in the field to provide services for customers. This is a wide open opportunity - think of any product or service that people need and, viola, you have a business. The senior population is exploding. Start an elder service that helps seniors with light housekeeping, grooming, and transportation. Two career families and busy folks in general equal a business for you running errands such as shopping, chauffeuring kids, and picking up dry cleaning.
You can strike out on your own with these home-based businesses or buy a franchise. Franchises offer a brand name people know and trust along with marketing support from the headquarters office. Start up costs can be out of reach for a lot of people, however, there are hundreds of franchise options in the work at industry that will fit with small budgets.
The Internet and print and broadcast media are full of ads for great-sounding work at opportunities. Sadly, the work at industry is full of scam companies that advertise high income home-based jobs. Some ads are specific while others are vague and keep you in the dark about the exact nature of the pie in the sky venture.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Do your research before you plunge into any work at opportunity. Talk with others who are working at home. Check out franchises or Internet opportunities with the Better Business Bureau. Despite the scam artists, there are thousands of options in the work at industry and one of them will suit you.
