3 Things to Consider Before Quitting Your Day Job

3 Things to Consider Before Quitting Your Day JobBy Angie Nelson

If you are trying to get your own business off the ground while still working away at a regular nine-to-five job, you’ll no doubt be desperate to quit your day job as soon as possible. While it can be extremely tempting to get focused entirely on your new business, quitting your day job at the right time is absolutely essential. Many people make the grave mistake of leaving too early, prompted by unrealistic optimism or a reckless willingness to take a major risk. Before you do decide to quit your day job and commit yourself fully to your own business venture, however, you should consider the following factors.

Your Responsibilities.

If you are living on your own, single and without children, then you are already better equipped to leave your regular job and make a full commitment to jumpstarting your own business than someone who has to worry about family and other major responsibilities. At least if you only have to worry about yourself, then you can take somewhat more of a risk. Also, the amount of money you will need to have saved up in case things don’t work out as quickly or as well as you would like is not as great. (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.

Nature Unleashed: Unprecedented Support for Brand Partners

Nature UnleashedThanks to Nature Unleashed for sponsoring today’s post.

For Joe, Darren, and Kimberly – Cofounders of Nature Unleashed, it isn’t enough to say they want to help people create a path toward financial fulfillment, they are intent on living that promise every day in their approach to direct sales and in the commitments they make to their Brand Partners.

According to Joe DeSantis, CEO of Nature Unleashed, the team knew right away that direct sales was the channel for bringing the Anolyte product line to market. The direct sales model allows for the development of relationships and the sharing of stories and experiences, a driving factor in how people learn about this type of product.

The Nature Unleashed Approach to Direct Sales

The philosophy behind the Nature Unleashed direct sales approach was developed after a lot of discussion around not only the compensation structure of the program, but also the interaction and support of Brand Partners. From the beginning, the team felt Nature Unleashed would not be a company that pays for just recruiting. Instead, product sales drive the revenue model. (more…)

Balancing Work and Life When Work is Your Life

Balancing Work and Life When Work is Your LifeBy Deborah Sweeney

Every working professional has been striving to find the perfect balance between work and life since the beginning of time. We need to work to sustain our lifestyles, and we need to indulge in our personal lives to have enough energy for work- it’s a tricky balance to maintain. But what about those of us that actually work from our own homes? It’s harder to draw a line between professional and personal when your “office” is mere feet from the play room that’s just begging to be picked up. If you find yourself constantly asking, “Where do I draw the line?”

Try out these four tips to separate your personal and professional lives, while maintaining a successful at-home business:

Schedule down time.

If you’re like me, you could go, go, go from sunrise to sundown without so much as taking five minutes to read the paper or enjoy a meal sitting down (so seems to be the case with most entrepreneurs). Though, I have found that if I keep up this schedule, within two weeks or so I’ll feel as if I’ve hit a brick wall. I become exhausted and scattered with little warning. (more…)
