Billy’s sleeping under my desk as I work on the computer. Ginger’s snoozing at the front door. It’s a beautiful day today, cool, sunny and windy. Just perfect for kite-flying, which several people were enjoying in the field just next to my home. Two men were flying stunt kites. Boy, those things really give a good workout!
I couldn’t resist curling up on the sofa earlier on to read a book. My living room has large picture windows overlooking the river, and it’s always bright and breezy. It’s a great place for relaxing as well as entertaining, and the occasional discussion. Business meetings, however, are usually conducted at the dining table or, rather, the ‘conference’ table.
Ah, the joys of working from home. Not only do I get more rest and more time to spend with my family, my clients are also more relaxed when they visit. I can’t imagine ever slogging away at a job again.
Most employers will never hire someone who has had a serious illness like cancer, no matter how qualified you may be. When you need to earn an income, those closed doors are really discouraging. If this has been your experience, have you considered starting a home-based business? It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or capital-intensive. Thanks to the internet, all kinds of work-from-home opportunities are available now.
For instance, I’m paid to write for websites and blogs, something which I thoroughly enjoy doing. I also sell various products through several online stores, such as carcinogen-free, safe personal care products and health supplements. I don’t have to carry any inventory, which really helps keep costs down for me.
You can make a decent living working from home, and enjoy a good quality of life doing so. Why not explore your options? Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wondering why you didn’t start your own home-based business earlier!
