Debating Working From Home? 5 Reasons You Should & 5 ReasonsTo Reconsider

Debating Working from Home? 5 Reasons You Should and 5 Reasons To Reconsider
Taking that last step to quit your job and begin working from home can be very scary. As with any unknown territory in life, you probably have many questions about whether working from home will be right for you. Talking to others can help but each person's personality reacts differently to working from home, making it an excellent choice for some and maybe not such a good choice for others. Check out these five reasons you should consider making that final step to working from home and five reasons you should maybe reconsider that decision.

Reasons you SHOULD-
  • You have children that are school age and will have free time to yourself to work during the day without interruption but will also have a flexible schedule to be available to them when they are home as well as for school activities when needed.
  •  You have younger children that you want to stay home with but plan on working only during naps and after bedtime and have a work from home job lined up that will allow this flexibility.
  • Your personality can survive without the adult interaction gained from working an office all day, in fact you think you will thrive working on your own.
  • You are a disciplined hard worker that does not need constant supervision and works well independently.
  • Your husband, kids, friends, and support network are on board with you working from home and understand the boundaries that need to be in place to make it successful.
Reasons you should NOT
  • You should NOT work from home if you think that your kids are at an age where they will need you constantly, do not nap much, and you have no free help during the day in order to get work done. Taking on a work from home job, especially one that requires phone work with a quiet background, is a mistake if your kids are at an age where this is just not feasible.
  • You should NOT work from home if you have no self discipline. There are a lot of distractions around the house including television, household chores, and talking on the phone that can take over your time if you are not careful.
  • You should NOT work from home if you crave the social interaction of the daily office. You will find yourself seeking it other ways whether on the phone with friends or chatting online or you will just be miserable being on your own at home.
  • You should NOT work from home if you have trouble managing your time or separating work from home. Achieving a well-balanced work/home life is vital to being successful.
  • You should NOT work from home if you think your children and spouse will not understand the boundaries needed or respect them enough to accomplish your goals.

Starting a Virtual Assistant Business

Posted on March 12, 2011 at 11:12pm 0 Comments

There are several companies out there that will hire you to work from home as a virtual assistant if you have secretarial or administrative assistant experience. If you have the  time to spend to promote your business to get it up and running you will make more by starting your own business as a virtual assistant.

  • If you don’t have enough experience or feel like your experiences could use a boost or would like to add a specialty to your experience,…

Business Resources

So earlier this week I share my list of resources for those of you starting up a blog to go along with your business or maybe for some of you, your blog is your business. Today I wanted to share some of the resources I have found the most helpful for business owners in general. Many times when you are running a small business you don’t have the money to hire someone to handle little departments within your business such as the tech side, social media, human…


New Facebook Changes

Posted on March 1, 2011 at 12:17am 0 Comments

There have been several new changes on Facebook lately both on personal and fan pages. The layout of fan pages has been changed to resemble the changes made on personal profile pages a couple months back. The biggest change on the fan pages is a little option you will notice over on the right hand side that you can “use Facebook as” whatever the title of your fan page is. Prior to this it was easy to post on your own fan page as your business entity but if you…

Hi Alaina,

Thanks for the friend request...I went to your page...I often feel overwhelmed with the Twitter/Facebook social networking...blogging is what came more easily to me...I am just so unsure about how to do the other things...although I do try.  Hopefully, I'll learn it all in time.  I know it would be great for promoting my new parenting book that provides 100 eco-friendly craft projects, 100 child-friendly healthful recipes and 100 recommendations and summaries of picture books every young child should hear, published last September. 

I've got a new tag line for the book...Just 15 Minutes a Day.  I think parents are often overwhelmed with books like much to do and so little time to do it.  Perhaps if they realize that just 15 minutes a day will shape their child's future, they might pick up a copy and give it a try. :)
