A lot of people look at their residence as a place just to rest their heads, eat and relax. The virtual workplace is becoming more and more popular. Employers are even allowing more employees to telecommute from home as well. So if you have a desire to work from home, don’t give up your idea. It is still possible.
One thing about working from home, you can work as an employee for a company or an independent contractor. Each has its own benefits. There are also home-based opportunities just from a simple idea you may have thought of. You would be surprised how a simple gift or vision you have can turn into a home-based business.
Another thing I must emphasize is you must have a passion for what you do. If you don’t have a desire or think of it as just a money making opportunity, it may not last for you. Put into it what you would like to get out of it. Success!
Working from home is nothing new. It has been around since the middle Ages if you do the research. Many merchants operated their business in part of their homes as their shops.
Now with technology and the internet, everything is made so simple to work from home. You have to remember, that working from home is not for everybody. You have to be disciplined, organized and a self-starter. Not having a supervisor looking over your shoulder may cause some people to slack. You can’t allow this to happen.
I am sharing below a few places where you can find work at home. You can find work as little as 24 hours. Yes and it can be legitimate. I must warn you to be careful not to fall to prey of those looking to take advantage of opportunity seekers. Always be cautious as you seek work at home jobs. Never let your guard down. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. There are many legitimate opportunities as well as scammer lurking the innocent online.
1. Craigslist – Always be wise when looking on here. You can locate positions very close to your home.
2. Elance – This is a great place for working for other online
3. Guru.com – This is a marketplace for freelance experts
4. iFreelance.com – Here you will find a variety of jobs

As always, I can’t express enough the importance of checking out a company. Check the local BBB and Chamber of Commerce. Look for contact phone numbers and emails also. If they ask for any money upfront, that’s a red flag and I suggest keeping it moving.
To your success…
