When Work is a Family Affair

When Work is a Family AffairBy Christy Schutz

I am in the midst of a professional transition. I left my advertising gig the end of December and decided to start the New Year at my husband’s small business. I am helping him do some general office management, accounting and process improvement stuff, but, more importantly, am focused on upping the ante on their marketing game in hopes that I can grow the business and increase revenues (which would only be a big WIN-WIN for the both of us)!

I knew I was headed for a year full of change. Not only professionally, in how I spent my time from day to day, but also personally. After all, this new venture will mean that my husband and I will be under the same roof for almost 24 hours a day.

So, in honor of all that, I thought I dedicate today’s post to the 5 lessons I have learned so far about working with your significant other.

1. Define clear boundaries between work and home.

Before we started working together, my husband and I discussed how we were going to mentally separate work time from home time. One of the things I wanted was to leave work, and work talk, for work hours. Likewise, we agreed that we’d try to leave discussions about our kids or pets to our off work hours. For us, it was important that we had a clear distinction – mentally and emotionally – between work and our personal lives. (more…)

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home By Holly Reisem Hanna

Back when I was in college, I worked for a telemarketing company. While the gig itself was flexible with it’s hours and it paid well, it totally exhausted me. More often than not, people did not want to converse on the phone (which I totally get), so I would have to deal with their anger, irritation, and lots of hang ups. Over time I dreaded going in to work. After college, I worked for Medicaid doing prior authorization for nursing visits and home medical equipment. Again I was on the phone for long periods of time dealing with disgruntled providers — no fun!

While a lot of work at home jobs are phone-based, the Internet has opened up a new breed of customer service that does not require being on the phone. In fact, live customer service chat is becoming more and more popular everyday. Some of these chat positions do require background knowledge of a specific area, and many of them do require you to type a certain number of words per minute, so make sure you read all of the criteria before applying.

If you want to work from home as a chat agent, here are 9 companies to check out.
