Working from home is not all its cracked up to be! There are constant distractions that keep you from actually bearing down and getting some serious work done. Not to mention the kids that make it almost impossible to get ANYTHING done without being constantly distracted. Babysitters are perfect…but so expensive! But really, these are just a handful of some of the issues you’ll face trying to work from home.
To get the FULL PICTURE of what it will be like, be sure to read our Is Working From Home For You? article. We love hearing from all of our visitors, so be sure to leave some comments and any additional suggestions you may have
Working from home isn’t as easy as everyone makes it sound
This is so crazy! I found an iPhone job that’s paying $50,000! If you love your iPhone as much as I do, then you MUST get in on this job. The best part is that it can be done from the comfort of your own home!
Why is it that most people start seriously considering getting an advanced degree (such as a Masters Degree) after they’ve been laid off for more than 3 months with no new job prospects? Because studies prove that getting an advanced degree is a sure fire way to increase your earning potential, that’s why. In fact, it often can be the #1 reason why you get your next job!
Don’t discount the power of going back to school to get an advanced degree in order to put yourself above and beyond all the other job candidates. Once you know for sure that getting an online degree is the right answer for you, the next question you need to ask yourself is what school should I go to? Most people on a shoestring budget choose their local community college. Please, whatever you do, do not choose this route! A Master’s Degree from a local community college is better than nothing, but pales in comparison to one of the well know, prestigious online universities.
To find the best online education for where you live, be sure to see our ONLINE DEGREE page which will point you in the right direction.

Two years ago we became the first freelance job search engine by aggregating all the freelance jobs from Guru, eLance, Freelancer, Odesk, etc. into one site. It’s been a long journey since then as we continue to improve upon our free service. It’s a labor of love for us as we don’t charge a cent.
In fact, I came up with the idea back in January 2009 after getting laid off by my employer. The economy was in shambles and layoffs were happening left and right. I knew my best chance of making it would be to come up with a site that helped me manage all the freelance jobs I was pursuing while looking for a full-time job.
Six months later the site was done, but full of bugs. It took another 6 months of testing and tweaking to get everything just right. It’s still not 100% perfect, but that’s exactly what keeps me going. In the beginning, building this site was all about me; helping me find work. Somewhere along the way it became more about helping others who are also out of work. My goal is to help each and every one of you find the work you need and want. Whether that be a work from home job or just some extra work on the side to put on the resume.
Now that our website’s two year anniversary has come and gone, I’m amazed to see that we’ve brought in over 400,000 jobs that anyone can do from home (or your cubicle – as long as the boss isn’t looking). I’m so glad to be here and I’m glad you’re here with me.
