Imagine for a minute the positives! You can earn good money without ever having to deal with transportation hassles the noisy environment of an office or distractions from other coworkers. Abel to schedule your hours around the needs of family and other obligations, this arrangement works well for many and is increasingly becoming a way of life for many in big and small companies alike. What opportunities are out there for you? What are the benefits and liabilities for a person considering seriously this type of life? How does one determine whether a work at home offer is not only legitimate but worth all the time and effort involved? What return should you receive? Are their work at home offers that should be avoided? Is the degree of advancement the same when your work is done far away from an office where you are never seen? If you love the idea of working as part of a team, is working at home online a practical alternative for you? If you have children or other family members at home while you are working, how do you establish boundaries and discipline yourself to get the work you have accepted done? What types of occupations are available and what can one reasonably expect when considering salary or other benefits? Join us for a discussion on the topic of online, work-at-home opportunities. We'll discuss useful resources for finding part-time and full-time employment, and will discuss the negative and positive aspects of having this kind of career.
