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.

Your Fortune For Today
Friday, October 24th, 2014

This is the day for collaboration and improved communication. Even if you prefer working alone, you will be most effective when you share the load. Teamwork and group efforts bring recognition and increased confidence. Ambition will cause some to put family or romantic concerns in second place.

You might be expecting some visitors to your home and looking forward to it. However, your plans could be frustrated in some way through miscommunication, undelivered messages, delays due to traffic, or other obstacles. Don’t let this dim your enthusiasm. Whatever you’re trying to do will eventually come to fruition in spite of temporary frustrations. Don’t give up. Enjoy your evening.

This is a lucky day to improve your home or do research to find a better place to live. Confidence supports success. Make sure to not get so caught up in your money- making tasks that you forget to relax and pay attention to loved ones. You need to remember that it’s the simple pleasures that are the most rewarding.

You may not want to openly admit something to someone today, even though you know it’s true. You’re more than likely working to hide behind a barrier that has formed between you and a close loved one or family member. If you insist on behaving this way, you may want to consider why you even bother staying in the relationship in the first place.

Contacting an old friend brings unexpected results. Carefully consider the details of any legal contract or partnership concern. Consider planning a party or going out with a group of friends. Be willing to try something new. Hidden feelings may appear as a detached attitude on the part of someone you like.

A social event or group rally could put you in touch with some new, exciting people in interesting fields. You might run into an old friend you haven’t seen in ages. If you aren’t romantically involved, an attractive new person could arrive on the scene. This promises to be an exciting, stimulating day. Don’t be surprised if new doors to a great future open for you.

Today, fortune is smiling upon you. Anything that you were scared to do, you must do it now since lady luck seems to be on your side. So go ahead and welcome every challenge with open arms!

Travel is on the cards today for sure. It could be anything-a spur-of-the-moment trip with a friend, a short trip closer to home or a road trip to rediscover yourself. You might want to focus on the ideas that erupt in your mind since your creative juices are flowing and who knows…you might just hit gold!

If you like being on the move, you will make amazing progress today. However, you might face problems due to some communication gaps, especially if one person is emotional and the other is rational. So make sure to talk!
