If you are on the lookout for working from home jobs you might need to rethink your job search.
The fact is, there are more people than ever working from home and there are a huge number of work from home opportunities. What I think confuses many people is the idea that there are a lot of “jobs” that allow you to work from home and get the same pay and benefits.
The truth is that there are a lot of small businesses and even big businesses that need someone working from home to do jobs on a piecemeal basis. A 1099 is music to a business owner’s ears because of the cost savings and the ability to terminate the consultant at any time – easily.
Working from home jobs are not usually going to be like normal jobs. They are going to be more likely to make the person into an entrepreneur and you are going to have to market your services, have multiple clients and prove your worth. So working from home is not for the faint at heart.
If you want working from home jobs then the good news is that with the rise of social media, content marketing and blogging there are more opportunities than ever. Most business owners are completely overwhelmed by the Internet marketing landscape. Working from home can be easy if you just learn how to be a virtual marketing assistant. We build a whole virtual assistant membership site around that concept, because there is such a huge demand.
Working from home can be very rewarding – but remember if you are going the freelance route, it is going to take time to build your client list and build your business.
