Let’s face it. We all love the comfort of our home. Most of us hate the daily grind that involves commuting to another location to work. Some of us wish to work from home so that we can be closer to our children or elderly parents.
The truth is, there are work from home job opportunities available to those who are willing to make it work with their life.
But how do you go about finding a work from home job? There are several ways. First of all, you must do your homework. Read up on work from home jobs and remember the key rule: if you have to pay money to the company, more than likely, it is not legit. The only exception is a few career opportunities that require small fees for training.
Some ideas that have stood the test of time are working in sales. There are many reputable companies, such as Mary Kay, Avon, Tupperware, The Pampered Chef, Scentsy, Lia Sophia and more. If you choose to go this route, you really need to be a person that enjoys interaction with others, since that is involved.
Take your current job home. No, really. More and more employers are becoming open to this option. Be sure to prepare your case well before you approach them.
There are companies that allow you to give customer service to their customers from the comfort of your home. A few of these companies are Arise, Alpine Access and Convergys. There are many more like them, as well.
There is always the option of providing child care or providing a service. Is there something you are particularly good at? Consider if there is a way to turn it into a business. If you are talented at making handbags, could you sell them on eBay or open your own website?
You could open a consignment shop or gift shop in your home or in a separate building you build next door.
The possibilities are out there for a work from home job. It is up to you to find the right fit for you.
