Holidays are a great time to pick up extra hours doing customer service type jobs while working from your virtual home office. Companies such as 1-800 Flowers, Amazon and other customer service type companies put on extra workers to help with the call volume during this time of year. If you have the time available and could use extra money, check out the virtual call centers for extra income during the holiday season.

We want to wish you a happy holiday season!

Remote Computer Access

Posted in Uncategorized on 10.10.17

Some telecommuters that work from a virtual home office are able to gain access to the main computer at the office with a virtual log in and secure server. For larger companies, remote access is a plus since they can see what the employee is doing on a regular basis.

Companies can monitor log-ins and actual work completed during the day. Working virtually with remote access still requires the home worker to have virus protection and all of the other safe working components. When choosing to work remote or with remote access, weigh all the options available with your employer.

Remember when working from home, you are solely responsible for computer upkeep and updates.

Are you ready to start your work from home journey?

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?

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.
