Case studies


Marcus Jaurigue is 28 years old, has 3 children and is happier than ever since he started his own business just over a year ago.

Case Study written 1999


I have worked from home for nearly eight years now, as a Market Research interviewer. I must say that I prefer it to conventional employment. One has the advantage that you can fit work around other domestic or social arrangements. The work is varied. Sometimes one is required to go out knocking on doors, at other times one may be given a list of names and addresses that can be contacted and often interviewed over the telephone. This is great in the winter. If the view from the window is not particularly encouraging, then the latter option is the one to choose.

Tony and his wife Tina own and run a small hotel in the beautiful Lake District, UK.

Case Study written in 1999.

Update: In 2002, Tony and his wife sold up and moved on. Not because the hotel and lifestyle was not a success but because new opportunities presented themselves. We wish them well.
