In a day and age of seamless communication techniques and resources, a work -from -home option becomes an attractive for a wide array of people. However, before jumping on to the band wagon, it is very necessary to take stock of the following:

Educational Qualifications and Experience:

The chances of a person being content in a job go up when he has the necessary background, knowledge, aptitude and liking for it. For example a person trained in health care field will be definitely more comfortable in a home based job as a medical consultant in her field of expertise and a person with a programming/IT background can do wonders as a freelance web designer. Vice versa and it may spell disaster.

A person with a teaching experience can opt for online tutoring; someone with a legal background has options working as virtual law assistant, clerk or research assistant, among others. An experience in print industry can help one start a career as writer /editor. Someone from human resources experience can work as a resume writer, applications consultant, educational recruitment consultant or home based recruiter. Those with technical experience can opt to work as a technical consultant.  A data entry job, on the other hand, will require a high school graduate with good typing skills. Someone with a good voice and expression skills can do work as a voice-over artiste. Someone with the financial resources and available spaces can open up a franchise in her area of interest.

Choose a job that deals with something close to your heart, use your educational expertise and work experience to increase economic feasibly and permanence of your WFH job.

Options for Home Based Jobs:

Once you have decided to opt for working from home, it’s time for you to decide as per your qualifications, resources and options available.

Some of the options available are:

Work From Home (WFH): These will generally deal with data entry, customer service, transcriptions, consultations, billing, research etc.

Home Based Businesses: Any business takes some time to get established, and then generate profits. It will be wise to stock up a nest egg to see you through this period. Any venture will require some kind of capital commitment. You must always discount for some kind of setback. Also be up to date with necessary documentation for your tax purposes. Delivery of work becomes your responsibility, and client will always expect results from you, meet your deadlines. Do a thorough research on every aspect of business. If you have small children do account for unpredictability of their needs.

Kids Know it All

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was..

The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."

The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl: replied, "They will in a minute." continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

You may have been looking forward to a social event, group activity, or perhaps a get-together with a lover today, but circumstances beyond your control throw some unexpected obstacles in your way. Don’t panic. If you’re focused and objective, you can find a way to get around the obstacles and do what you want to do. If you’re involved in creative projects, you might seem blocked today. This should pass by tomorrow.

It may be hard for you to find answers today. You may also find it difficult to get your point across, especially since everyone’s head is way up in the clouds. Don’t be surprised if your own head takes a trip up there as well. You’re better off giving it a boost up there instead of trying to force it back down to reality. Check things out from a different perspective.

Unexpected developments might interfere with your home life or with plans to spend a quiet evening with your family. This could have you feeling a little down at first, but don’t let it get to you. Whatever you do today might open doors that will benefit both you and those close to you.

Your financial situation looks particularly good right now. An increase in income could be coming your way. The downside could be that contracts might be involved, and you’ll have to spend time perusing boring legal documents that need to be executed. A lot of visitors could come to your home tonight, probably to exchange ideas and information. Send them home before too late. You’ll want to get some sleep!

You might want to straighten up the house this morning since there is a possibility of some unexpected visitors dropping by. You may even end up serving lunch or dinner to a group of ten! Instead of panicking, just take a deep breath and organise yourself. If the cooking is too difficult, just place a call to a good restaurant and order something.

In spite of the leaps and bounds you’ve taken over the last several months, a slump could set in as you start to doubt your ability to attain your goals. A disheartening and unexpected setback may have occurred, but you’ve never let this sort of thing stop you before. Don’t fall into this trap now. Brace yourself, reassess your methods, and get back in the saddle.

Travel could be on your mind. You’re probably excited about a forthcoming vacation. You might need to finalize some arrangements today but find it difficult to reach people you need to speak to. This is frustrating but it shouldn’t lessen your enthusiasm. Keep trying. You’ll eventually reach the appropriate person and finish whatever you’re trying to accomplish. Hang in there.

Be patient if you feel that something is hopeless. When stressed, it’s wise to keep things as simple and uncomplicated as possible. Music and being around positive people can help ease strained feelings. Indulge yourself with a massage or other health treatment to improve your sense of well-being.

Expect slow and steady progress. You may experience a certain amount of frustration, as many areas of your life may not be producing the results you want or expect. This is mostly a matter of timing. Criticism of others will only cause hurt feelings and not further your agenda.
