Working From Home 101

Let me tell you, working from home IS NOT easy. It will be like working a regular job but from home but the neat thing is some companies let you decide what hours you want to work and you are not micromanaged or have to deal with office politics.

Working from home is not sit back and let money come in, if that's what you are expecting..sorry to burst your bubble but then working from home is NOT for you. Companies will not pay you to goof around or waste company time. In fact, a lot of companies have a tracking system which they will use to monitor your productivity.

However, for those that love independence, freedom, don't mind not having face to face interaction and can self manage it can be a dream.

Here are some jobs that I've done working from home:
