Best Cities to Work From Home

Best Cities to Work From HomeBy Sarah Landrum

Working from home is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. In fact, it seems as though more and more companies are adapting their offices and tasks to make working from home more plausible for their employees. This cuts down on costs for employers and makes employees happy, working from the comfort of their own homes.

Because this trend is growing, it’s possible for you to live anywhere you want, in any city you want, depending on your occupation. This begs the questions: What’s the best possible city to work in when you work out of your home? This list takes into account Internet speed, cost of living, general happiness of citizens and even more.

San Francisco

San Francisco is the perfect place to live if you work from home. It’s a fantastic city with a mild climate. Cost of living can get pretty expensive, but the city still offers fast Internet, great businesses and companies to work for, along with beautiful views and delicious food. The city is even working on getting Internet connections on public transportation vehicles.

Washington, D.C.

Working for the government has never been easier. There are actually laws in place that mandate government agencies to allow their employees to work from home, so naturally, living there is a great place for a telecommuter. The access to the Internet and the fact that it’s a pretty cool city doesn’t hurt either. (more…)

Huge List of Work-at-Home Jobs by Location

Huge List of Work-at-Home Jobs by LocationBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Each week we post new, work-at-home job leads on the website, via our social media channels, and in our newsletter. While  many people are able to find jobs that suit their needs through these listings … there is ONE complaint that I receive over and over again. And that is … “Why isn’t this job available in my state?!”

There are many reasons why certain jobs are not available in all states; ranging from state regulations in regards to Independent Business Owner (IBO) status and release of information, to cost effectiveness, efficiency, taxation issues, and location-based training requirements. So to help fast-track your work-at-home search we’ve complied a list of work-at-home jobs by location.

After exploring this list — if you still can’t find a work-at-home job in your neck of the woods, I highly suggest checking out FlexJobs. Not only do they screen all of their jobs for legitimacy, but you can also search for telecommuting jobs by state or country. They also have a great list of Anywhere in the World Telecommuting Jobs!

Please note while all listings are believed to be correct, you will need to verify the information, as requirements change and sometimes information on websites is outdated. (more…)

4 Reasons Working from Home is Perfect for Empty Nesters

4 Reasons Working from Home is Perfect for Empty NestersBy Christy Schutz

In the past, I have written about the changes that take place as our children leave the house and we transition to that “Empty Nester” status. I have one more child at home who is entering her sophomore year of high school, so, it is something I think about quite often. As I ponder the who, what, where, when, how and why of this particular transition, I am realizing that my work-at-home lifestyle is actually going to be ideal for the empty nest stage of my life, too.

Maybe you are imagining a morose scene, with me taking brief breaks in between work to visit my children’s empty bedrooms and sob over past memories, but, that definitely isn’t what I am picturing.

Here are four Empty Nester scenarios I am imagining that fit in perfectly with my telecommuting lifestyle.

Travel and Make Money

I have always loved travel. I love visiting new places, particularly historical places, and imagining the wonderful things people accomplished and the cultures in which they lived. Once we become Empty Nesters, my husband and I have plans to pick up and start exploring as much as possible. (more…)

Five Tips for Hosting a Virtual Holiday Party

Five Tips for Hosting a Virtual Holiday PartyBy Christy Schutz

As hard as it is for all of us to believe, the Holiday season is well underway. In fact, when this article is published, it will be the first day of Hanukah and about 9 days until Christmas. As if the pressure of those facts is not enough, please let me remind you that you have about 5 days left to host a holiday party with your virtual colleagues.

Now, before you convince yourself that such a feat simply can’t be done, read on. I’ve compiled the following 5 easy steps to help you make a Holiday get together more than a remote possibility (pun intended … see what I did there … remote).

Consider the timing.

When scheduling your Virtual Holiday Party, remember to consider that your employees may be in different time zones. Depending on where everyone is, it may not be the most ideal time for everyone, but, try to be creative. For example, your party could be a festive lunch on the East Coast while simultaneously a fun breakfast on the West Coast. Once you nail down a time, use a popular e-card site to send everyone invitations. (more…)
