Life: Working From Home

Working from Home!

As many of you know, I work from home. I work per Diem (as available) as a Medical Reports Proofreader and part-time as a Internet Research Guide. I really enjoy both positions a lot. Working from home allows me the opportunity to create a schedule that meets the needs of my family. In my book, family comes first. Of course, bills do not stop showing up in your mailbox just because you decide to stop worrying so much about them! It would be great if they would but that's just wishful thinking....and uh..perhaps against the law to just "pretend" the mailman never delivered them! :)

Working from home allows me the ability to help compliment and supplement the income my husband brings in. I have the opportunity to work full-time from home.....but with my kids being the focus here, Why spend all my time working when I can be playing Lego's, watching Sesame Street and singing the Alphabet Song all day, everyday with the little people in the world that I love the most? Three years ago when I started working from home, I made a commitment to myself and my family that I would only do what I needed to do to help out with our income. Never did I expect to make a full-time salary like I did working full-time at my brick-and-mortar health care job. I knew I didn't want to spend all day working anymore! If we could cut back on a few things and live within our means and still be happy....I knew it was worth giving it a shot! Making money to pay for groceries, gasoline, basic needs, school supplies and fees, utility bills, and an occasional car or house payment was enough to make myself beam with pride! Also, the satisfaction of knowing I have something to fall back on in case hubby's job is ever in jeopardy is very comforting! And to top it all off, the kids seem rather pleased to still have me home with them.....I guess they haven't got tired of me yet, so I guess I'll keep doing this work-at-home stuff. It really seems to work out well for us! lol :)

My question for you is.....
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to actually make money working from home? To quit your 9-5 job and put an end to the rush-hour commute to and from work? To save money on the expense of gasoline and the expense of eating out for lunch? Do you ever wish you could spend more time with your kids but work is a constant barrier? Are Day-care expenses hurting your pocket?

Well, consider finding a position that you can do from home. Many companies are allowing employees to start working from home because they are beginning to realize that this actually allows them to save thousands of dollars a year per employee. Also, the rising costs of fuel is a huge reason why companies are looking into the advantages of allowing employees to telecommute.

Not sure where to look for a work-at-home position? I've got a great place for you to check out. Work at Home Mafia.

Work at Home Mafia is a great online community to help introduce you to the world of work-at-home. They offer sections on companies that hire individuals to work from home. There are also a lot of wonderful and supportive members on the site that are friendly and helpful, including myself! :) I strongly encourage you to check out the site and start imagining yourself as a work-at-homer! The wealth of information there is unbelievable! The job leads are fresh and hot on the market! You might just land yourself a position you've only dreamed of! And of course, you will be well on your way to helping others find a work-at-home job for themselves too in no time! :)

IMPORTANT: And most of all, Remember this......Never pay anyone to work from home! A legit company will not ask you to pay them upfront to get started. You collect money from them, not the other way around! There are a lot of scams out there. Do not fall victim to fake work-at-home scams! :)

And that's all for now folks! Make sure to check back with me soon! And don't forget to check out the Mafia site if you're interested in working from home! :)

Hugs! :)
