Is Working From Home Really More Flexible?

By Dawn BerrymanIs Working From Home Really More Flexible?

Many of us seek work-from-home employment or start our own business because we want more flexibility. We want the ability to work the hours we choose, be with our children when we want and take care of our personal and family needs while we work.

Is that realistic?

There are many scenarios that can upset this ultimate work-life balance that we all seem to seek.


In many cases, women don’t just want to work; they need to work. Their families rely on their income to help support their needs and wants. When a woman decides that she wants to start her own business, this is sometimes hindered by the family’s needs. She may not be able to afford to quit her existing job to launch her venture. The family may not be able to simply absorb the start-up costs and the difference in pay that she may experience.

A lot of women entrepreneurs start their businesses while they continue to work either full or part-time. This can cause the business to get off the ground more slowly. It can also be overwhelming for the woman who decided to start the business because she wanted more flexibility when in actuality it’s causing her to spend even less time with her family. (more…)

But just what are the best work-at-home gigs in a small town? Of course, you’ll want to do your own research, but here’s a list to get you started.

Find a Remote Job.

To help fast-track your job search here are some nationwide companies that hire remote Customer Service Reps:

How to Know if That Potential Work From Home Job is a Scam

How to Know if That Potential Work From Home Job is a ScamBy Kimi Clark

Maybe you desperately want to find a work from home job that will allow you to leave the rat race and be more present for your family. But with all the scams out there, how do you know if the job you’re applying for is a scam?

While the internet makes it easier to find the good stuff, unfortunately, it also brings out the crud in people (and businesses!) You should always make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into to avoid any horrible mistakes, possibly significant ones.

Here are a few things you should know to steer clear of red flags and avoid the scams:

Never Pay For A Job.

If the company asks you for money upfront, don’t fall for it, it’s most likely a scam. Now I’m not talking about a direct sales business where you have to invest in a startup kit or materials to get started, but a work-at-home position with an established company should never ask you to pay them to begin working for them. The chances of you ever seeing your money back are pretty non-existent.

Watch What Google Says.

Always do your due diligence and research a potential employer before beginning work. Look at reviews, and even type in the company name with the word ‘scam’ after and see what comes up. Chances are if you find several scam posts about them on Google — you’d better watch out! (more…)
