Home Business Success: Increase Your Income by Taking on Home-Based Jobs

Increase Your Income by Taking on Home-Based JobsBy Angie Nelson

In the last few years, the number of people who earn their primary income by taking on home-based jobs has been steadily increasing. Some decide to start their own business from home so they can cut back on travel expenses, while others choose to take on home-based jobs so they can spend more time with their families. Regardless of the reason, many people are finding success in running their own home business. According to Entrepreneur Magazine, home-based businesses generate around $427 billion in annual revenue, and the Home-Based Business Institute estimates that 70% of home-based businesses last for over a period of three years.

Advantages of Working from Home

There are so many things you can gain from being a home-based worker, beginning with the huge amount you can save on commuting expenses, office attire, and other expenses related to traditional office-based careers. Complete control of your own time is another major advantage of working from home. You get to spend more quality time with your family and you can also manage the household much more effectively. With work-at-home options, married couples won’t need to decide who goes to work and who stays at home because now, both can contribute to the household income regardless of where they are. (more…)

How to Figure Out What Work at Home Job is Right for You

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.

Do You Have What It Takes to Work From Home?

Do You Have What It Takes to Work From Home?By Kimi Clark

So you want to work from home. Maybe you think about things like waking up at your leisure, taking time off whenever you want to, and being able to work in your PJ’s. While some of those things ring true, there are many other things to consider.

Here are some questions you might want to think about when considering if you have what it takes to work from home.

Do I Have What It Takes To Work From Home?

1. Can You Set Clear Boundaries?

Ah, let’s start with a tough one. That whole work/life balance that we are ever seeking is partially defined by the boundaries you set. This is a hard one to enforce when you work at home as there are countless tasks, chores, and sometimes people around you that need tending to, and you have to have the ability to essentially ‘turn off’ at home issues while you’re working.

Granted, we can’t ‘turn off’ children, but we can make sure that kids and family know that when you’re working, you’re working! (Except for emergencies, of course!) Turn off outside noise also such as phone calls from friends, texting, TV, and even answering the door. (more…)
