Business cards

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else on 19.12.16

When working from home, do you need business cards? I would say yes. I can’t say how many times someone will ask me. “You work from home, what do you do?” Times like this, I like to give out business cards.

It gives all the pertinent information about my job, website information – as well as advertises the company I work for. This is a great business tool for creating business within your community.

Making Money with Ebay

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Work at home opportunities on 27.07.16

When you think about working from home, you think Avon, Mary Kay, Tupperware or some other home party type scenario.  What about eBay? I know several people that make it a full time occupation to sell things on eBay. If you are a garage sale/ estate sale buff, this is a great way to go. When my grown children were smaller, I would take all of their old gently used toys and clothes and put them in a resale shop since there was not an eBay.

This gave me extra income plus provided funds for next season’s clothing. Take the items you buy at a low cost and list them on eBay. Create an appealing, low maintenance website.  Shipping is now available from home, so no real cost there and you are doing something you truly enjoy. I always tell people to discover your passion and find ways to make money at it.

Time Management

Posted in Uncategorized on 12.07.16

Managing your time wisely while working from home can be quite the challenge. Many factors come into play when working from home. You have the neighbor that stops by to chit chat or the home room mom that calls to say “Since you are not doing anything, can you help me on Friday?” These are common scenarios with people that are located outside of the home but you also have family that tends to think you are available all the time since you are home “doing nothing”.

My day begins as a normal job would. I get up at 6:30am and get ready for work. I am in the office at 7:00am and begin my day. I work for 5 hours or so and take my scheduled lunch break away from my office. I plan my errands and other household activities around my working hours just as if I was in a brick and mortar job.  It can be tough to set business hours around the family and work from home distractions, but is something that is doable and well worth the effort.

WAHM and Telecommuting chat boards

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else, Work at home opportunities on 23.05.16

When you are first starting out working from home, locate a few chat boards that you feel comfortable with and become a member. There are so many people out there looking for work from home and the chat boards are great resources for a newbie. When I first started my work from home journey, I joined several chat boards. The forums are a great way to make friends/acquaintances with people that share your interest.

Chat boards are a great way to talk about working from home as well as other day to day things that happen to work from home Moms and Dads. We all think we have unique experiences but in this industry, we find that our experiences are quite similar. We all have the same goal: to work from home and take care of our families.
