    possibly if people start letting laid off and fired. But this is very unlikely to happen since the world needs people to do other things that you can't do over the internet such as taking out fires.

    People will mainly have to go to a place of work... that's my opinion anyway!!

    I think it is. I have worked from home for 2 years-first promoting an online travel company that totally rebranded 1 year ago to a tech based company. I honestly believe that working from home is the best thing ever.

I honestly believe that working from home is the best thing ever- but you have to be dedicated and motivated or else you'll fail. Working from your pjs every day does not work for everyone. Sometimes people have to actually dress for success to be successful working from home.

    It will always be the "future" for the small elite that want it bad enough.

      It truly is.what we see all around us,is the destruction of the traditional work system.The economies are being teared apart.So,something new must come out of it.And that is working from home,no bosses.Only co-workers,and everyone gets what he/she deserves.

    Working from home won't replace the traditional work setup. All I can see happening is 'work from home' jobs gaining more popularity and more people taking to it. However, I don't see it replacing the traditional office-based setup anytime soon!!

    I think more people can work from home, but you'll never completely get rid of the traditional work set-up.

    Yeah you can work from home and one of my friend is doing this very well. Maybe he is lucky or he struggles more than a normal person.. but if your earning way is your passion then you can do anything.
    So its possible that you can work from home.

    But the fact is that most of us dont have enough awareness about internet earning, so they ignore and neglect this opportunity and just follow the generalized way of doing job.

      There will be a blending of both worlds and an entirely new and satisfactory one for all will emerge.

          In addition, I agree with khmohsin that for one to be happy at any job it has to be his/her passion.

             Its also true that some people want the feeling of dressing for success away from home.

    The two ways of working will merge together, not collide. I work from home and I like it, especially because I don't have to give personal information just get a job done and I control my own schedule. But I just do it because it's the only thing that will perfectly fit into my student life without affecting it. In the future, I will want a "real" job.

    Have you looked into reading or listening to the book - The World Is Flat By Thomas Friedman???

    Or "Why we want you to be rich" by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki

    This might be an eye-opener to the future of the middle class. You see as more and more businesses look to the internet and outsource to places like India, jobs that require a university degree are likely going to go to cheaper paid professionals abroad.

    The internet is not going away....its going to blow harder.

    There will soon be rich and poor. Which side do you want to be on.

    Its not just about money, but what it can give you.

    Just like air...everybody needs money.

    Another good read is - "THINK and Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill

    You have the following options:

    Become an expat and work abroad (places like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Hong Kong)
    Become self employed (the worst because you own a job)
    Start an online business (leverage systems)

    Working for someone else and paying taxes and investing in pensions schemes has passed its sell by date.

    How many of your grandparents or parents have enough money to retire?

    Do you listen to your parents and friends for financial advice?

    Do you give your money away to a financial advisor?

    Is a savings account increasing the value of your money above inflation?

    Have you ever considered that a house is a liability?

    Have you ever considered increasing your financial IQ and learning the skills necessary to become financially free so you can not have to worry about money? Travel more?

    As Donald Trump says - "Think Bigger"

    I highly suggest you read some books by Robert Kiyosaki or Donald Trump.

    Learn the power of leverage.

    Chris D James

    p.s. I highly recommend joining a group called Toastmasters International - google it and you will find groups in your area. You will learn leadership and public speaking skills.
