Fire Your Boss and Work from Home

By: Shane Osburn

Working from home either as an entrepreneur or as an employee of an office has many advantages and the current trends in automation, computers and communication has made this kind of remote working a distinct possibility. Many people choose to leave their full time jobs and take home assignments as an individual contractor or as part of their own business, in the need to become masters of their own time and effort. The main advantage that an offline job provides is the freedom to juggle your work hours according to your priority and according to the amount of money you want to make. Thus the main benefit one can gain from this is the satisfaction of being able to spend enough time for the family or any other priority along with making money to meet the financial needs. There are several ways of earning from home and computers have made it still easier. Anyone with computer knowledge can earn a good sum by working online, which requires less time as compared to any other work.

Many people wrongly assume that everyone who works from home is a part timer and that he or she earns less compared to other entrepreneurs. This is incorrect as many of the small scale home entrepreneurs have become multi millionaires.

The most important advantage of working from home online is the savings with respect to the cost of setting up offices. As online home offices are mainly service businesses, setting them up costs much lesser than traditional offices. These generally home offices require a clean space with good ventilation, a good set of decent seat like desk, chair etc., for comfortable working. Some kind of arrangement is required to store information like customers, vendors and other contacts. For an online home office, it might be even easier s these can be stored in the computer using basic software like spread sheets or even some small software. Communication equipment like phone, fax, and internet would complete the setup. There are many low cost online phone service providers using which local, long distance and even international calls can be made freely or at a very low cost.

There are plenty of jobs available for online and remote working. These can include documentation work, editorial work, data entry related ones, data collection, searching and researching using internet etc. You can even work as a virtual assistant, which means an independent entrepreneur who can provide the required office-support services in the administrative, creative and technical wings. This type of work from home includes word processing, desk top publishing, editing, proofreading etc., it also includes bookkeeping, billing, preparing spreadsheets, databases, writing resumes, designing websites and even doing research. Normally these virtual assistants work for businesspersons, who do not opt to have full time secretaries such as new or small businesses, self-employed individuals etc.,

Apart from these there are many other affordable and convenient jobs for home entrepreneurs that keep coming up as new services are being required. Online jobs also save a lot of time as they keep you from traveling and generally you can be in any part of the world and serve clients in any other part of the world. Thus working from home online has great advantages compared to other office jobs as those working from home not only earn money but also have the satisfaction of managing their time according to their priorities. It is this flexibility and independence to that is the best benefit of online working
