10 Reasons Introverts Work Best at Home

10 Reasons Introverts Work Best at Home

By Emily Belcher

Introverts work best at home, far away from people. It’s not that introverts necessarily hate people. In fact, there are a lot of reasons introverts work best at home that have nothing to do with other people.

1. Comfort

Comfort is key to finding satisfaction throughout your career. You will do your best when you are comfortable in your own skin, which isn’t likely to happen if you’re not comfortable with your environment.

The most important reason an introvert works best at home is that they are comfortable in that environment. You will get the best results from someone who is comfortable, rather than someone who is anxious or stressed.

Some people work well under pressure, while a quiet introvert may succumb to a stressful environment.

2. Dependable

If it’s one thing introverts don’t like, it’s confrontation. Even if it’s via email from your boss, confrontation of any kind is an automatic anxiety-provoking trigger, which introverts strive to avoid at all costs. This fear is what makes them so dependable. (more…)

Why Being a Work-at-Home Mom is the Best of Both Worlds

Why Being a Work-at-Home Mom is the Best of Both WorldsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

From a very young age, I knew I wanted to be a mom. In fact, every year in my School Days Keepsake Album, it would ask the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And while I had no clue what I wanted to do professionally, I did know that I wanted to be a mom.

As I got older and thought more about becoming a parent, I knew that I wanted to be my child’s primary caregiver. Maybe it was because my mom had stayed at home with my siblings and me. Or maybe it was the fact that I didn’t like working as a nurse. Whatever the case when I got pregnant, I started planning for my transition out of the workforce.

During my last nine months working as a nurse, I saved as much money as I could so that we wouldn’t feel the financial loss. But my savings dwindled much quicker than I had anticipated. Having been a parent for nine months, I knew there was no way I could put my daughter in daycare; it would have broken my heart. So I started looking for work-at-home jobs.

After searching for a few months, I secured a part-time, freelance, marketing position which gave me a steady paycheck and the idea for this website. I worked approximately 10 to 15 hours a week while my daughter napped; it was perfect. I had money coming in, and I was able to witness all of my little girl’s special milestones. (more…)

8 Ways You Can Make Money When You Travel

8 Ways You Can Make Money When You TravelBy Anum Yoon

No matter how frugal you are while traveling, money also seems to go quicker than you thought it would. If there were a downside to traveling, it’d be the cost of going for as long as you want.

That’s why doing some work on your travels can extend your trip for quite a while. You won’t become rich by doing any of these jobs, but you will make enough to get by if you’re dedicated. Best of all, most of these following jobs aren’t particularly time intensive. For the most part, you can work put in a couple hours when you have some down time and enjoy your time on the road.

1. Transcription

Transcribing audio won’t exactly get the adrenaline pumping, but it’s one of the perfect gigs to do while traveling. There aren’t specific skills that are required, you can work on your own time and the work can be steady. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but once you get good at it then it becomes easier to earn money. There are a number of online companies offering up projects. Some of the better-regarded companies include Rev and Scribie.

To find out more about this career, check out this interview with experienced transcriber, Lisa Mills.

2. Freelance Writing or Design

If you know a thing or two about writing or design, check online for small projects that can earn you a little money. (more…)

How to Figure Out What Work at Home Job is Right for YouBy Holly Reisem Hanna

When I started looking for a work at home job – I didn’t care what the job entailed. I just knew that I needed to make some money and I wanted to be at home with my daughter.

I searched online, checked out the wants ads, and even asked past employers if there was ANYTHING that I could do for them. I was willing to do data entry, make phone calls, complete research, run errands, anything … I was desperate! Unfortunately, desperation is often what leads to scams. And I came across a ton of them.

When you’re looking for a work at home job you need to be clear in your intent; meaning you need to slow down and take inventory before you begin your search. What are your passions, skills, and prior experience? Do you need health insurance? Do you need a flexible schedule or can you commit to regular day-time hours? When you cast your net too wide, you fail to find the right job for you, because your search is not targeted.

To assist you on your work at home journey, here are 7 common work at home themes, companies, jobs, and ideas that will fast-track your search.
