Office at your door step – work from home

Oscar Wilde once said “When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is.”

Money was always important but as the buying power of people is increasing its is becoming  more important. Earlier we would make money so that we could do things, be happy, now money has turned into the priority. Rich wants to be richer and richer wants to buy an island or perhaps a nation.

Traditionally people were rooted in one place, only traders traveled but most people worked in the towns they were born. But now we are ready to work anywhere in the world even at the cost of moving away from their families, ancestral homes and towns. Money and growth have now become a deciding factor for one’s status in society. If paid well people are ready to travel long distances everyday and work in any environment.

There are circumstances when one cannot travel, for example – a mother of two children, her responsibility as mother would not allow a very educated and capable young woman to go out and seek a job. However, every individual needs to have some level of financial independence. Even teenagers/college going students would like to supplement their pocket money with some additional income if it is possible to work from home without taking a regular job.

  • Since there are no fixed office timing it may happen that family people consider you as available all the time, inform them about your work hours and politely request them not do disturb you during this time.
  • Stick to the target that you have promised to your employer or customer
  • Take only as much work as you can handle.

So, if you have dreams, which are yet to be fulfilled or you want to have financial independence and add some extra money to your bank balance start working from home.
