Working from home can be deceptive. The comforts of home do not necessary help with work. The television, refrigerator, and a dozen other distractions might make home a bad place to work for some. Here are ten tips to help.
- Becoming a homeworker is something to be planned rather than a knee-jerk reaction to problems such as debt.
- You should never pay to do homeworking, eg craft assembly. It is usually a scam.
- Get rich quick schemes do not work. You are kidding yourself if you send off your £5+ to join.
- Homeworkers work very hard indeed and you should expect to as well.
- If you are a new mother do not overload yourself with trying to find work at home. Small children and work do not mix very well ~ and you work hard enough as it is!
- It takes time to secure a steady income as a homeworker, unless of course you have an employer and do your job via telecommuting.
- Piece work and other such work can be found (from companies local to you) but they are usually badly paid.
- Most successful homeworkers create their own work, based on their interest or skills.
- Do your homework first before trying to become a homeworker! Check out what regulations there are concerning your chosen field of work and whether there is a market for your work.
- When the going gets tough setting up as a homeworker, remember that it will eventually be an extremely convenient and satisfying way to work!
