Work From Home To Save Money And Ease Congestion.

It’s about time the concept of working from home is a more readily available option for today’s work force. I read this morning that on the island of Bermuda the government is considering having a portion of their employees work from home in an effort to save money and ease congestion in the capital city, where most civil servants tend to work. The work from home idea is being welcomed by environmentalists and even the union representative for the workers see this as a step forward.

Does Working From Home Really Save Money?

How can working from home save me money? This was the first response I got when I first approached my employer at the time (going back 15 years ago), at the concept of me telecommuting from home a few days of the week. I had done my homework, so I was prepared to awe him with my responses. And I did. Not only was I working from home 3 days of the week, after 2 months I was a full time telecommuter and within 6 months I was a contract …

What’s the real cost of not allowing your workers to telecommute?

I’m always in the hunt for news relating to our industry. It’s the only way for me to really keep up with trends and developments, since telecommuting or working from home can be very lonely and when you’re not surrounded (no chats by the water cooler) by people in the industry you tend to loose touch with it. This is one of the main reasons why I have my “google alerts” set to fetch relating news about the telecommuting industry.
Don’t get me wrong, there are hundreds of forums and groups …

How To Outsmart The Work At Home Scammers.

I’m sure we’ve all seen the ads: “Earn $1000′s weekly stuffing envelopes from home!” Have you ever been tempted to send in your money for that one? I have. Luckily I didn’t do it, but I know many people have. It sounds so great, doesn’t it? Sit at home watching television while stuffing hundreds of envelopes, and get a nice check every week. If only such a job existed! Don’t fool yourself, it doesn’t. Why? Companies can easily purchase a machine that will not only stuff the envelopes for them, …

Is Working At Home Right For You?

If you’ve just begun your search for a work at home job, you probably have a beautiful concept of what working from home is like. You probably imagine yourself waking up whenever you want, sliding your feet into fuzzy slippers and shuffling to the kitchen to get some coffee, then shuffling along to your office to put in another wonderful day at work, then later going to the mailbox to pick up your weekly paycheck of several thousand dollars. I hate to burst your bubble, but it doesn’t work that …

Don’t let yourself be a victim.

Are you so serious about working at home that you would pay money to prove it? If you answer yes to that question, you are a prime target for scammers because this is one tactic they love to use. They may word it differently on various websites and advertisements, but the main point they want to get across is that by sending them your money, you will be “proving” how serious you are about working for them.
Nothing could be more ridiculous. Have you ever seen a legitimate company do something …
