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.

Idle Chatter

A teenage girl had been talking on the phone for about half an hour, and then she hung up.

"Wow!" said her father, "That was short. You usually talk for two hours. What happened?"

"Wrong number," replied the girl. continue reading...

You may find yourself emotionally challenged today by a strong force demanding your attention. Your hyper awareness to every situation might be driving you a bit crazy. Perhaps you just need to tone things down and relax. Enjoy rather than question the fun-loving energy of the day. The more you simply let loose and explore, the better off you’ll be.

You may feel as if people have turned against you today and that they’ve suddenly lost interest in what you have to say. Maybe this is a reflection of your own inability to truly listen to someone else talking. Look at the collective picture and open your eyes to the world around you. Get involved in the community instead of only focusing on you all the time.

Right now, you seem to be in a balanced state of mind. You are finally able to accept what went wrong in past relationships and learn from them. Also, because of this newfound calm, you are comfortable in the present situation as well which is further helped by support from loved ones. It’s important to be quiet and listen by mediating and try to get in touch with your inner self.

Trust that you have all the facts you need today. You should be feeling quite good, emotionally. Use this self-confidence to make great strides in whatever you want to accomplish. Have fun letting your mind drift to a fanciful world where it can explore your imaginative proclivities. Feel free to use your strong hold on facts as a base to take off into a highly creative and intuitive realm.

Today you might try to continue or complete a creative project of some kind, but your imagination just isn’t working the way it normally does. Also, overindulgence from last night could have you feeling a bit sluggish, which doesn’t help the situation. Put your work aside before you give up on it completely. This is only a temporary situation. Your mind should be back to normal tomorrow.

Today, anxiety may rule your head for better part of the day. You might have a feeling that something is wrong and may be twitchy and nervous the whole day. There is a chance that you may go on a wrong track with this mindset so make sure to take deep breaths and relax, especially before making any important decisions.

Visitors could come to your home tonight possibly for an informal get-together of some kind. Dear friends might be involved in some way. You’re likely to be very busy during the day, perhaps tying up loose ends. Your mind is probably going a thousand miles an hour, so you’ll need to wind down before going to bed tonight. You don’t want to lose any sleep.

You might feel that money is flowing out of your bank account all too quickly lately, and this might be a cause of worry for you. You could feel you’ve spent too much on decorations for your home or on entertaining family and friends. Don’t worry! You’ll make up for it, and besides, you can’t take it with you, you know. Watch your spending, but don’t turn into a miser.
