Resume for Working from Home

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else, Work at home opportunities on 25.08.17

Building your work from home resume is a little different than the traditional resume. Working from your virtual home office allows you to add more education and training to your resume.

For example if you become certified in web design or database development, list this on your resume. Work from home is not only a job but your core business. Listing your education and certifications can help land an account or position that normally would not be a consideration for those without the traditional corporate ladder experience.

The Balancing Act

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else on 10.08.17

When I am working at home in my virtual office, I often struggle with managing my time. It is not always the family or work that causes issues. It can also be the weather, society or general everyday distractions that keep me from performing my best.

Every morning before I start my work day, I sit down and plan my day by priorities. I use a day planner and task journal to keep a visual account of what my goal is for the day.  This allows me to know what has to be done for the day and what could be put off to a later day or evening time when the family is in bed or occupied.

How well do you manage your time?

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else, Work at home opportunities on 27.07.17

In the beginning, work from home was mostly for Moms seeking to contribute a small income to the household. Now there are more and more people- moms, dads and even grandparents that are raising children who are choosing to work from a virtual home office.

Many workers both male and female are choosing their career based on telecommuting opportunities. With the virtual home office becoming more of an option for modern day workers, more and more families can support their household while raising their families.

Coping with Kids working from the home office

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Minimizing Distractions on 05.07.17

As school lets out for the summer break, many work-at-home parents are struggling with how to keep their kids pre-occupied while they work from the home office.    Now that my daughter is older (age 13), she requires very little of my time and does not affect my home office operations much.   However, when she was younger (in pre-school or early elementary school), keeping her busy while I was working was quite a task.

Here are few quick tips for occupying younger children during the summer break:

  • Remember that this is their summer – their break from routine.    Scheduling several interactive and engaging activities during the summer break will provide much needed “together time” and lifelong memories.
  • Depending on your situation, your work is still a priority.   You still need to accomplish specific tasks during their break.

Work with your family and children to create a balance between summer break, vacation and work.   Chapter 14 offers an array of tips for working with families.

Backing up Work Files

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else, Minimizing Distractions on 23.06.17

While working from your home office, it is very very important to back-up your computer files. I find this topic one that has hit home recently. My husband’s personal computer crashed this week and he lost all data stored. His data was very important since it housed all of our financial information. Since working from your virtual office is your main source of income, it is high priority to schedule time to back-up your computer files.

Some telecommuters complete this task weekly and others once per month. It does not really matter when you back-up files for your virtual business, but think about the position you would be in today if you lost your entire computer and all data and how easily you can avoid that situation.

Are you set up for a successful journey working from home?
