Work From Home - Alorica

Updated on July 21, 2016

When I Quit My Job

After coming back from medical leave, after all my stress was subsiding, the stress rash and flood of stress and anxiety came back. I thought to myself, I cannot keep calling my doctor to medicate me so I can deal with the stress and anxiety work was causing me. I sat at my desk in thought and my thought was I can't take it anymore, I need to leave. But I just couldn't leave without verifying this move with my fiance and my mother, the two most important people in my life who I trust when making tough decisions. Neither one of them said do it, they both said to do what's best for me and if this was what I thought was best, they were behind me 100%. I opened up a word document and typed my resignation. I was very professional and gave a 2 weeks notice. I planned on going through my day with my scheduled client meetings, however I was asked to leave upon receipt of the letter. The first words out of my mouth were what about my client calls today. That didn't seem to matter as I was escorted out.

When I got home, there was a big weight of relief lifted off of my shoulders. As the days went by my stress rash disappeared. I no longer needed anxiety or stress medication.

I talked my husband into starting his own business. I started handling his advertising and at times working with him because at this point I was just a home maker. Don't get me wrong, I went out on interview after interview with some great companies like Chicos and Hertz to name a few. Finally I figured since I'm home why don't I just join the survey sites that pay you money. After a joining a few and getting too many emails, and at times not qualifying for the survey, it felt like a complete waste of time. I was at my wits end of what to do. I was so used to being a career woman, and I didn't think about what my next steps were to be when I quit my job. I was beating myself up every day - where are these work from home jobs I keep hearing about and seeing on the news and on shows like HGTV. What are these people doing, how do I avoid the wasted time on the scams?

Finally I found a work from home job which was fortunate and unfortunate. It's unfortunate because our home line is for my husbands business first and then for whatever purpose I need it for. But my purpose cannot have call waiting and the business must have it. So when I got hired for a legit work from home with Alorica, I completed my training and got paid, but I could not work on the phone as a customer service representative because our phone line has call waiting. If anyone ever wanted a verified work from home job, Alorica is legit! It took a long time to get hired, so I would keep looking for other odd jobs to keep yourself occupied while waiting.

Another work from home job I discovered, after a very good friend told me to blog for a living, is a place called blogmutt. My bestie from back home used to read all my short stories at work. If I had down time, I used to write poems and short stories. I wanted to be a writer of some sort. I haven't decided what type of writer, but I did so enjoy writing short stories, poems, my dramatic dreams. So the trusty old digital marketer in me, the research side of my brain, begin to Google this topic of making money from blogs. As I'm researching this information, Hoda & Kathie Lee's show is on in the background and I hear information about Mommy Bloggers who make money. I thought no way is this possible! What are these women doing.

In my attempts at writing for blogmutt, I feel very intimated because I know it's been a while since I've written and what if my syntax is off. I was very OCD with my first attempt at ghost blog writing. I must have re-written and re-read the first blog 20 times (I'm serious). I knew my writing was very rusty when the team at blogmutt sent my blog back for corrections, but after those corrections I actually got paid and my blog got posted. Blogmutt will accept everyone and they help you along the way with your writing. You will start at the lower level until your writing improves.

These are the two work from home jobs that I located and are legit. If I locate anymore, I'll be sure to have another hub about it.

Have you ever quit your job without another job lined up?
