Reasons Why I Prefer Work At Home Jobs

Since 2007, I started working as a part-time web content writer, blogger and a virtual assistant. I must say that I do enjoy working at home because I can work at my own pace. I can choose the projects I want and I don’t mind working in my pajamas.

There are numerous reasons why you should consider working at home instead of working in an eight to five routine in the office. In the corporate world, you have a lot of strict rules to follow in terms of corporate discipline such as attendance and uniform. Another factor that I love about working at home is that I don’t have to race every morning so I won’t get caught in the traffic. Now that I work full time freelance writer, I am able to experience the following benefits:

Financial Reward

There is a lot of work at home jobs available for every skill. For instance, you have good writing skills; why not apply as an academic or web content writer? This will surely bring you good income since all websites need good and quality contents. When you work at home, you will certainly notice that your financial status has improved a lot. Initially, the earnings may not be that much but think about the savings you can get from your travel expenses. As soon as you get more clients, you will definitely get more profit from your writing skills.

Flexible Time

This benefit makes work at home jobs attractive especially to housewives. There are actually many home-based and freelance jobs in the internet. You may choose from data entry jobs, blogging, virtual assistance and filling up of surveys. These jobs will allow you to allocate your time accordingly since they don’t require so much of your time. In my case, being a home-based writer gives me more time with my family, and do things that I enjoy – writing!

No Supervisor

When work at home, you will be your own boss. You designate which task or work at home jobs to accept, and you work at your own pace. There is so much freedom you have if you choose to work at home. Let say, you choose to take a work at home blogging. Here you can select which blog you are comfortable writing about yet no one imposes the task or forced you to do it. Everything will be under your control.

More Options

The best thing about work at home jobs is that you have the freedom to select the type of work you are willing to do, and do it at your convenient time. If you want to work for only four hours a day, or have the weekends off, you are free to do so. There is plenty of work at home jobs available via the internet. In fact, signing-up in Odesk or LimeExchange.com can help you find tens of home-based jobs.

Work at home jobs can be financially rewarding and a stress-free career. The options are endless for you to find your dream job online. A degree is not necessary in finding your desired home-based jobs. All you need to have are: basic knowledge on computer, proper time management and your ability to complete the task without constant supervision.

How I Discover Online Earning

I started this blog because I want to share my online money-making gigs to everybody who wants to optimize the use of the World Wide Web.

Let me begin by giving you a brief description of myself. My name is Ronna, a former college teacher, overseas worker and sales executive. I have spent a decade working in several industries, but I didn't experience a stress-free career until I finally chose to work as a home based web content writer.

I must say that being a freelance online writer allows me to work at my own pace, and do works that I enjoy the most.

I started freelance writing since 2007. Since that year, little by little, I gained knowledge on how the internet can really help me in achieving decent earnings. In fact, I am earning more than I used to receive from my previous jobs.

My start as an online writer was quite easy since I love writing. Although looking for legit projects was the most challenging part. Of course, there are hundreds of work-at-home scams circulating in the internet. Fortunately, I did not fall for any of those frauds.

I got my first client from an online forum, and I still get tons of projects from her. After, several projects, I gained more confidence, and so I registered on job sites where I can get additional clients. I would say, this is my destiny because everything seems to fall into its proper place.

I continuously receive offers from local and international clients.

So, I suggest that those who are just starting out on their online ventures, don't just quit. Learn more and continue doing what you enjoy.
