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.

Therapy Helps

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start.

So far today, I have finished two bags of chips and a chocolate cake.

I feel better already. continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Surround yourself with well wishers today. Interact with those who bring our the best in you and encourage you to follow your heart. There is nothing wrong with showing your feelings, both positive and negative. Intimacy cannot grow if you, or your sweetheart, hide your most honest reactions.

It might seem like you are facing a faith crisis t the moment. You might face problems in more areas than one which may have you doubting your ideals and the entire belief system. However, refrain from going down that road. Hold on to your faith and things will definitely work out.

If you are getting that tingling feeling today then rejoice, cause Cupid is right around the corner! Love and romance are definitely on the agenda for today. So you should be feeling warm, passionate, and particularly sexy. You’re likely to be walking with a spring in your step which will make people sit up and take notice. This is a wonderful day to shop for new clothes, have your hair styled, or prepare a candlelit dinner for someone very special. Go for it!

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.

A group you’re involved with may want to discuss a trip of some kind, perhaps to a convention. The drive to expand your horizons is very strong today. Therefore, trips like this or other opportunities to learn and grow can be especially appealing. You might come up with a few ideas of your own that you prefer to pursue alone. Give it some thought!

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 are a parent, then pay extra attention to your child today. He may want to say something and might require a little encouragement from you before opening up. Or he may simply require a hug or a pat on the shoulder. Either ways, simply spend some extra quality time with your child today.

Today you might wake up feeling that you can move mountains – and this might be exactly what you set out to do, figuratively speaking. Your physical energy, enthusiasm, and self-confidence are very high. Your own and others’ creative projects could take up a lot of your time. If you’re coaching or helping others, however, avoid the temptation to take over the project.

The surrounding energy is encouraging you to open up more to your world, culture, and ways of thinking. You don’t have to go off alone in the desert to reinvent everything. For you, this would be the easy way out, because it would allow you to hide! Develop your curiosity about what exists in this society. Your opinion will carry weight later on.
