Do you have any experience of working from home and if so, how has it worked out?
I've been doing it now for almost three years, Sally, and it has worked out nicely and I love it. It is not, however, for everyone. It takes organization and dedication to work from home. There are so many distractions that can lead one away from the work that has to be done, so if you can't stay focused on the job, and if you can't treat it like it is a job, then maybe it isn't for you. (not you in particular...just you in general)
Hi I have been working from home for over 30 years. Yes can you believe it !!! It has it's good times and also bad times. You need to have a strict check on time. In the early days family and friends will just pop by for a chat and coffee. You need to explain you work between this time and that.
You also need to have a separate work area that is your office
it's something I would like to do. I'm naturally an early riser - and I am the most productive in the morning. If I didn't have to rely on travel time and the like, I could just be up and working during my most productive hours and then relax by 4.
I'm working on working from home. I'll let you know how it works out! I'm almost there!
I am still wishing I had phrased the question differently, it would be so nice to know what type of work people are doing successfully from home. Be good to hear how it pans out, good luck ThompsonPen.
I was thinking the same thing as I was going through every one's responses again I'm hoping to write, make some pennies off that, but I am also in video production, and our office is soon to be in our home
Well, I had a work-from-home job up until just a couple of weeks ago when the job was eliminated. It was a great job and very fulfilling. I enjoyed being able to set my own hours and work from the comfort of my own home. As others have noted, you do have to be disciplined and make sure that you meet deadlines. Luckily, I think I have a good personality for working from home, and so I didn't have a problem with it. I am currently seeking something to replace the job. I do highly recommend it!
I work from home most weeks and I can tell you that, without a doubt, time management is the most crucial element for success. I spent more hours than I care to count wasting time. playing games, and just basically goofing off. Once I worked out a schedule for myself, things got a lot better.
I think Billybuc said it all in his latest Hub - a schedule it seems is an absolute necessity. I can be difficult to juggle between jobs, perhaps more so for women who take care of kids and house-work. Some men may disagree! Thanks Shawn Mcintyre
I wouldn't call my self an experienced work at home person since I am an on and off when it comes to working at home. But I generally find it easier to work from home as I don't really have to worry about traffic and the like.
I just saw your question and your subsequent question in the comments. I work from home part time as an Independent Distributor for It Works Global. I love it! For one thing I use the products every day and they have seriously changed my life with Fibromyalgia. I have a team that is growing and expanding in several states. I love it because I can work it around my life, my family, my fibro and day to day changes. I love the freedom that working a business from home provides. If you or anyone would like details on my business I would love to share them.
I have been working from home for more than 20 years. My oldest child is intellectually challenged and dyspraxic, which necessitated either me or my husband staying home and being available for whatever he needed. I learned early on that I needed to find some sort of work (that was flexible and could be accomplished from my home office) to fulfill the career-oriented side of my nature. I hold a doctorate in organizational psychology, so thankfully it wasn't too difficult to find work as a researcher and data analyst. I am forever grateful for that first gig and the gentleman who hired me, really on faith!, because it gave me confidence in my ability to do the work AND to do it remotely. Working from home can be a solitary, lonely experience at times, so if you're a real people person, take that into consideration before you jump into a work-from-home position. These days, there are so many more work-from-home opportunities available to seekers of nearly all education and experience levels. It may take a little perseverance and patience to find the right fit, but it's worth it! Speaking as a mom, it has definitely been worth it!

Ok, I thought I had this worked out. How is the payment calculated. Is it page views? If it iswhy does the amount fluctuate so much, even though views are fairly consistent?
