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.

  1. Becoming a homeworker is something to be planned rather than a knee-jerk reaction to problems such as debt.
  2. You should never pay to do homeworking, eg craft assembly. It is usually a scam.
  3. Get rich quick schemes do not work. You are kidding yourself if you send off your £5+ to join.
  4. Homeworkers work very hard indeed and you should expect to as well.
  5. 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!
  6. It takes time to secure a steady income as a homeworker, unless of course you have an employer and do your job via telecommuting.
  7. Piece work and other such work can be found (from companies local to you) but they are usually badly paid.
  8. Most successful homeworkers create their own work, based on their interest or skills.
  9. 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.
  10. When the going gets tough setting up as a homeworker, remember that it will eventually be an extremely convenient and satisfying way to work!
