Working from home is the dream of many. They will be able to have full-time income, but they will also be home to watch their children, take care of the house and avoid all of that traffic. How can you really and truly establish a permanent homebased job that works for you?
Easing Into It
Quitting your regular job and suddenly deciding that you are going to work from home is not necessarily the best idea. The only exception is if you have a lot of backup funds to support you while you establish yourself. It could take years to have a steady enough job where the income will be enough. If you ultimately want to work from home full-time, you should start on the road now.
Many work from home jobs are based off of freelance work. You might write, take videos or participate in a community in some other way. It’s important to have a number of different clients if you’re going to be engaging in such a practice. You never know when one of them may no longer require your services. As with any job, no guarantee exists that it will last forever. While you are working toward becoming a full-time work at home individual, it’s important to be establishing a significant client base.
Unfortunately, not everyone acknowledges that work from home jobs are as serious as other positions. Do not take personal phone calls during the day, and avoid spending time on social media websites. Be sure to market yourself in such a manner that people realize you’re a professional and not a student who is looking for some extra work. When you have a job to do, make sure parameters are in place that ensure the safety of both yourself and your client. You should have a fixed amount set for a certain amount of work, and you should not let people take advantage of you. This can be a hard balance to achieve when you’re working for yourself.
Once you are really ready to make the leap, you need to start advertising yourself in the community as well. This practice helps to create respect for your business, and it also helps you to establish a wider client base. If you have children in daycare or in school, find out if you could advertise at one of these facilities. You can also try posting signs in grocery stores, libraries and other shops that you frequent. Keep in mind, you will likely be unable to post signs in the windows or on the walls of competing businesses, but many others will be fair playing grounds.Working from home has both advantages and challenges. You need to keep yourself focused, and you need to be strong in terms of representing yourself. After you have been working at it for awhile, you will likely realize that this is the lifestyle you love, and you’ll be happy with all of the positive changes it has made in your life.

Technical writers produce instruction manuals and other supporting documents to communicate complex and technical information for business and consumers. They also develop, gather, and disseminate technical information among customers, designers, and manufacturers.
Technical writers work with engineers, scientists, computer specialists, and software developers to create operating instructions, how-to manuals, assembly instructions, and “frequently asked questions” pages to help technical support staff, consumers, and other users within a company or an industry.
Technical writers typically do the following:
- Determine the needs of technical documentation for end users
- Study product samples and talk with product designers and developers
- Work with technical staff to make products easier to use
- Organize and write supporting documents for products
- Select photographs, drawings, diagrams, and charts that increase users’ understanding
- Get usability feedback from customers, designers, and manufacturers
Many technical writers are contract-based and self-employed, and work from home offices, receiving assignments and contracts via email, fax or other digital methods.
