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…)

5 Reasons Not to Wear Your PJ’s to the Office

5 Reasons Not to Wear Your PJ's to the OfficeBy Patty Buccellato

Did you start your workday at the computer in your snugglies this morning? Convenience is probably one of the reasons you started an at-home business in the first place. You can stumble from bed, to coffee maker or kids’ room, to your office in less time than it takes most workers to plan their morning commute. It goes to follow that comfy clothes are a regular workday temptation.  But like many other temptations, giving in is not always in your best interests.

Just as having a clear-cut workspace delineates the separation in mental focus from personal to business, “getting dressed for work” can shift you into a more purposeful mind space for the professional goals you’ve established. A well-put-together personal appearance boosts results in tangible ways.

Consider the impact on five success-producing qualities:

1. Confidence.

In a study of 100 women ranging in age from 21 to 64 — 96% “believed that what they wear affects how confident they feel.” (Most of us are aware that we’re judged significantly by appearance. Whether you’ve been ignored at a store in favor of a better-dressed customer, or passed over for a promotion in the workplace, it’s likely you’ve had some direct run-in with the effects of appearance and dress.

How to Work From Home as a Voice Actor

How to Work From Home as a Voice ActorBy Jason McCoy

Voice acting is the art of reading a script and using your voice to bring that script to life by acting or creating a character, which is then referred to as a voice over. Voice actors are also often called voice over talents and voice artists.

You probably hear voice acting every day, but may not realize it. Voice actors can be heard on commercials, audio books, telephone greetings, store announcements, and more!

Anytime you hear a voice, but don’t see a face – that is a voice over which was recorded by a voice actor.

Working as a Voice Actor.

Most voice actors work right from the comfort of their own homes using the internet and some basic recording gear.

The thought of working from home, acting, and creating characters for a living seems like a dream to many, but it can also make some people feel uncomfortable. Maybe you’re thinking you’re a bad actor or you feel because you haven’t had any acting experience you’re incapable of becoming a voice actor.

It’s true some roles may be too much of a stretch for you in the beginning stages of acting. Maybe you feel silly or embarrassed acting like someone you’re not. That’s understandable. (more…)

11 Creative Ideas to Help You Earn Extra Money

old-3-compressor_x450By Holly Reisem Hanna

From a very young age, I was motivated to make money. I’m not sure if this was ingrained in me genetically or if my parents just taught me well — either way, I’ve always found creative ways to make money.

If you’re looking to increase your bottom line – here are some methods I have used throughout the years.

1. Making Money With Nature

One summer, I decided to collect salamanders from our backyard to try and sell them to pet stores. After finding nine salamanders, and storing them in a five gallon bucket with food and water, I went to the yellow pages and started calling pet shops. I remember I called a lot of stores, but after numerous attempts, one pet store owner agreed to purchase the salamanders for 50 cents a piece. Thrilled to find a buyer, I asked my Dad to drive to me to the store to make the sale – he did (thanks Dad)!

Yes, I only made $4.50, but that’s not the point. The lesson here is … if you think outside the box you can find creative ways to make money. While this salamander example isn’t going to translate well into a business today, there are people who make good money forging for wild food. In fact, here’s an interview with a guy who is making $30 an hour selling wild foods to restaurants – pretty impressive! (more…)
