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

Trust your judgment today. People will appreciate your good sense. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas. Be responsible, but keep things in balance. Make time to do something you especially enjoy. Some people will be feeling rather nervous. Any public presentation will go well. In romance, the direct approach is best.

Friends are a positive influence. The more reasons you find to laugh, the better you’ll feel. Say yes to anything that inspires your imagination. This is a positive time to make changes at work. Older people may need more attention, and here again, laughter is good medicine.

Today, you could receive an affectionate, supportive letter or phone call from someone close to you. Communications with others should go smoothly, and intelligent conversations could well take place. A favorite author, musician, or actor could release a new book, album, or movie that you’ll want to jump on right away. Or you might want to try your hand at such enterprises yourself. You do have the talent.

Tempers may get hot today when someone says something that pierces you to your core. Address this problem right away, instead of letting it fester through the rest of the day. The solution requires sensitivity and caring. Let the offender know that he or she has hurt you significantly, if that is indeed the case. There’s no need for you to try to hide your feelings.

Change your lifestyle if you want to get immediate relief from your prolonged tension and strains of life. Put on your track pants and go for a jog or a brisk walk. Make exercise a part of your daily routine and remember to keep smiling as it will go a long way in keeping you healthy.

Your engine may sputter this morning as your gears begin to turn. It could be that you’re working out something important in you mind that’s helping clarify your emotions. The answer you seek is probably nothing like the one you’ll find. By the time night comes, you’ll have everything figured out. All the answers you need will be right there in front of you.

You are likely to be feeling at the top of your game today. The cosmic energy encourages you to follow your passions, have fun with friends, and make extravagant plans. This is a great time to recruit helpers for any interest. Other people appreciate your concentration and attention to detail.

Your mind is in great turmoil right now, so it isn’t surprising that you can’t pay much attention to anything. It’s as though your concept of the world has been inexorably changed and you see your love life and career with new eyes. Even so, you feel compelled to pick up the pieces of the past and save them. The day ahead should help you let go of the old world.

This is your day! You may find that people gravitate to you for advice and support. They’re apt to lower their guard and more openly accept things you believe in. Conversations could lead to more spiritual topics and you could end up giving lessons on the meaning of life. Suddenly, the things you’ve been thinking are reaching a huge audience that’s eager to hear your words.
