The How and What of Work From Home [Pros & Cons]

The How and What of Work From Home Should I Be Excited?

As you’re well aware, nowadays a person cannot avoid running into some form of Work from Home while surfing the web.

For this reason, I hope I could shed some light and enlighten you on the possible opportunities that you may benefit from working from home.

But first, a brief mention about me, I’ve been working from home for the past 12 years.

I work as a Property Manager, Commercial Real Estate Salesperson and more recently in the past 3 years I own and operate my own websites.

Therefore, I can most definitely relate to and hold experience in working out of the house.

Personally speaking, I’m an advocate of operating a home base business, if that is if you have the opportunity to do so.

However, I’m even a stronger believer in self-employment, freelance or simply, working for oneself.

Especially, considering how and what I do for a living, as mentioned above, are all interrelated to each other, thanks to the online/internet/web world we live in today.

How times have changed so quickly in the past ten years.

Taking advantage of the progressive tide.

In summation, speaking for myself, I’m always opened to all forms of tangible and intangible business opportunity as long as it’s legitimate.

And notably, the online/internet/web related world which is and has been gaining huge attention and not to mention, the tremendous growth to this present day.

Plus, more importantly, for me anyway, to have this great opportunity to work online from the convenience of my home.

So, if you can indulge me, allow me to add a bit more facts to support the future outlook concerning the online/internet/web sector.

What does the future look like for the online/internet/web business?

To answer this question we must first acknowledge what the populace of the world is telling us. (Data source un.org and internetworldstats.com)

When I started working online back in October 2015 there were about 7.3 billion people on earth and of which 3.3 billion people were using the internet.

However, more recently as of 6/30/18 out of 7,634,758,428 (billion) people there are 4,208,571,287 (billion) internet users.

This works out to about 28 million new internet users per month or about 336 million new users a year.

As a result, the online/internet sector has had and is projected to continue to have a commanding influence globally.

Moreover, not to be all technical or sound too analytical, the online/internet has had a tremendous impact on the Global Gross Domestic Product (Global GDP) Sectors: Agriculture, Industry, and Service.

The Agriculture, Industry, and Service Sectors are now quite dependent on the online/internet/web world.

And undoubtedly, for this reason, the online/internet will continue to have an enormous bearing on the way how all forms of business will be conducted for the present and future.

I’m sure the online/internet has made, one way or another, some kind of impact in your daily lives as well.

Again, to reiterate the online/internet is here to stay, it will continue to diversify and expand on further job creation throughout the world.

Consequently, emerging as one of the primary factors for sustaining the fuel for the financial growth of the world.

Who do you think is going to benefit the most?

Furthermore, the reverberations from the online/internet monetary growth will first benefit the risk-takers of whom are the owners, shareholders and self-employed.

The risk the owners, shareholders and self-employed are willing to accept to enjoy a greater reward and for the generous piece of the pie.

I’m hoping you’ll keep an open mind and not limit yourself to solely working for someone else.

Keep in mind, working from home should not restrict your options, but instead broaden the feasibility for you to consider becoming your own boss.

Having said that, one good thing for sure, despite if we are an owner or an employee, we all should be excited about the present.

And even more so, I am thrilled at looking forward to what the future technological innovations may bring-in on enhancing all forms of Work from Home opportunities.

So, what does the data say?

However, I am well aware of the fact as to the statistics on employment which shows clearly that globally, the majority or 90% percent of us work for an employer.

With that being said, let’s take a look at exactly what is offered on the world wide web and rather than searching “Work from Home” which is too broad to cover, allow me to narrow it down to “Online Work from Home Jobs”.

Here are some I’ve come across which you might find intriguing in pursuing while Working Online from Your Home.

  • Online customer service (paid per hour)
  • Shop from home assistant (paid per hour)
  • Answer emails (paid per hour)
  • Short tasks – surveys, create texts, write articles, etc. (paid per hour or per task)

Listed above are only a few and there are no shortages of what more you can find on the web. And, as made aware above, you can even broaden your search results by searching “Work at Home” or “Work from Home”.

However, as you can see, if you’re determined on settling for a job by which you want to be compensated by the hour, there are numerous options for you to select from.

But be informed here’s what’s required.

  • Range from no experience, experience, degree or even an advanced degree.
  • The standard background, credit, criminal, etc.. Inquiry and check.
  • Expect to present your resume followed by a phone interview and/or in-person interview may be required.

So, once you’ve narrowed down your prospects prepare for the interview by searching and reviewing “Work at or from Home interview tips.”

Despite all the endless possibilities, it’s crucial for you to verify the employer to make certain they’re not a scam.

There are scammers pretending to be employers, employment agencies, or services. These scammers will persuade you to fill out job applications for the sole purpose of stealing your identity.

In addition, they’ll charge you for bogus background, application, and other erroneous fees. Think twice before giving out your Credit Card information and be extra careful handing out your Social Security number and Date of Birth.

So, be sure to be constantly alert. Keep in mind, there will always be dishonest low life scammers quick to prey on you.

But all in all, if you are determined on working from your home to receive a paycheck, then you should not have any difficulty obtaining one.

So, utilize the web/internet and with precaution seek the best opportunity that may be the most suitable for you.

Lastly, before you do anything else let’s examine what are the Pros and Cons of Working from Home/Online.

Pros:

  • Being close to your family
  • For the majority more family time
  • Not guaranteed but work when you want
  • Not having to commute (save money and time)
  • Save money on business (attire, meals, dry cleaning, etc.)
  • Wear what you want
  • Possible money savings for childcare
  • In most cases work from anywhere not just home
  • Eat and cook when and what you want
  • Self-discipline (accountable for self)
  • No more unproductive gossip
  • Tax benefits

Cons:

  • Distractions from family and household noise
  • Self-discipline (depression, isolation, self-motivation, etc.)
  • Promotional issue: out of sight out of mind (unless self-employed)
  • Home Office, Costs for home office and supplies
  • More utility costs (electricity, gas, water)
  • More home fuel usage
  • Possible additional phone line or lines
  • Reliable internet connection a must
  • Backup during a power outage (computer, internet, etc.)

As related, I’ve owned and operated my websites since 2015 and worked out of my house for the past 12 years.

I know and have experienced a thing or two on the Pros and Cons, but for me, the Pros outweigh the Cons by far.

A final word, the online/internet sector is here to stay. It will continue to receive support from the Main Sectors: Agriculture, Industry, and Service.

And, along with the world population showing no signs of stagnation, there are no shortages of demand for all forms of online/internet technology.

For the majority of the developed countries, we are dependent on the online/internet for everyday lives.

How times have changed.

Speaking for myself the online/internet has a commanding influence on how my family makes purchases which are primarily online and that’s including big-ticket items.

To make a case how strange it may seem, during our recent vacation we did more shopping in the brick and mortar stores and as funny as it sounds we enjoyed it.

However, once we got home we went back to our routine and dreaded going to the stores.

So, the point I’m making is that the signals and signs are telling us we got to get involved in this online/internet “thing” before it gets too old and saturated.

What Other Options are There?

Therefore, for those of you who have ever thought of Starting Your Own Online Business

by setting up your own website and work from anywhere with just a PC and an internet connection then I know I can help you.
