All Things Work From Home

Over the past 6 years I have been an all things work from home person. Because my health issues I can not work the regular 9 - 5, but that did not mean I could not work from home. I have always searched, and researched for ways to earn money at home. I also always believed there is money in my company (love my computer). I found a job working for U-Haul it has been 2 1/2 years now and I still work with U-Haul making pretty good money part time. U-Haul is the BEST job I have ever come across. I know no one from U-Haul will ever know how much I appreciate working for the company at home.

I have been through hell and high water, deep water, storms, earthquakes you name it I either been through it or know someone who has. ...And I am still hanging on to my U-Haul employment. Why am I so grateful? U-Haul has no idea my life has been turned upside down, and inside out so many times, but they never ever just said that's it you're out of here. I have had so many computer issues that are far beyond what is normal. First of all my desktop computer which was my best computer, and never had any issues with it was sold off by my roommate along with all my clothes, and TV. So I was left with my laptop to work on, which was in fairly good condition, but I have a hard time trying to see on my laptop. However, I kept on working.

I digress, when I was first hired I thought how ironic that I work from home for a moving company, and I am the queen of moving!! Not by choice mind you.

It all started when I began working with my advocate from the My Employment Options company who work with people with disabilities. They worked with me all by email and over the telephone. The only time I was required to go anywhere is when I was hired at U-Haul. I went to the location near my home to sign off on my application.

So here I am writing this article mainly because I found myself yet in another crazy situation!!! I moved from Chicago to Atlanta for reasons I really can not describe here. Keep in mind I purchased a brand new computer before I left Chicago, and guess what when I moved into my apartment in Atlanta I signed on to go to work, and the computer is NOT WORKING!!

This is a true story nothing here is fictional. I have my old laptop which I can only use to surf and what not, it can not be used for working it does not meet the standards to work on. So now I find myself with a new computer that's out of whack (3 months old) and wondering how the heck am I going to pay these bills. I had to shift into 3rd gear and find resources for plan C.

I when on a serious quest to find something else I could do until I am able to get my computer fixed. I always had a plan B, but never had to resort to plan C. Guess what plan C was pretty darn good! What did I dirt! I could not believe the amount of sites I found that is truly honest and legitimate companies. I thought why not write a hub and share these golden finds with you...enjoy.

I do not know if you guys realize how much is really available for us who do work from home. There are a lot of companies who prey on people who work from home, and they have become more high tech with trying to get money out of people, but do not fall victim to it. Some companies still advertise you can make money online by doing surveys, I have tried a million times over to do surveys online and I still get the same results. It takes so long to earn enough money to do anything with. I currently do surveys with paidviewpoint they are pretty cool but it takes forever for the money to add up.

I will list those opportunities in the next article.
