Your Work from Home Journey - Three Paths You Can Take and What You Need to Know Before You Go 

Have you always wanted the freedom and flexibility of working from home, but you weren't sure how to get started? If you’re an employee now, are you scared to give up that security for an unknown outcome? Are you a stay-at-home parent who wants to make extra money while your kids are at school? Whatever your situation, this book shows you three legitimate ways to earn from home and tells you what you need to consider when you work from home.

Not just another directory

Too many books about working from home are nothing more than directories of different places where you can apply for work-at-home jobs. They offer little or no advice to help you understand what’s involved in working from home. In Your Work from Home Journey, you'll learn not only where to find work that matches your skills, but also how to be a successful freelance worker and what to know before you start.

This book is divided into two sections. The first provides information on three viable ways to make money from home: by taking inbound or making outbound calls, working as a freelance writer, or transcribing dictation. I have provided information on the skills and tools you need for these options, as well as some websites where you can find work in these different areas.

The book does NOT go into detail about how to spot a work-at-home scam, instead offering helpful links to websites that can help you spot scams.

Mindset, skills, information, roadmap

The second section provides a crash course in how to succeed when you work at home. The book tells you how to:

  • Develop a ‘work-at-home mindset’
  • Deal with common distractions
  • Stay organized
  • Understand the differences between an employee and an independent contractor
  • Maximize income tax deductions available when you work at home
  • Prevent or deal with common health problems that affect work-at-home professionals
  • Reduce stress when you work from home
  • Maximize your earning potential on revenue share freelance writing sites
  • Master the good phone skills needed when you work from home
  • Take care of your voice when you work from home.

Your Work from Home Journey provides you with a road map to success as a freelancer.

Lessons I Learned from Writing My First eBook

Posted on May 16, 2014 at 7:17am 0 Comments

Now that I've published my first eBook and it's started getting some downloads, I wanted to share some lessons I learned as I went through the process of writing it. If you  haven't written your first eBook yet, I hope you'll keep these things in mind as you start writing it.

Make it a priority - If you're determined to write an eBook, you need to set aside time to actually work on  the process.  If you work full time, this means you  may have to get early or stay up…

Helpful Tools for Freelance Writers

Posted on May 15, 2014 at 9:04am 0 Comments

If you work  as a freelance writer,  there are several websites and software programs that are very helpful.  These tools  allow you to collect information you find when you're researching your articles, check your writing to make sure it's not plagiarized, and make sure your writing is clear and understandable.  The tools I'll discuss in this article are Evernote, Hemingway, and Copyscape.

Evernote - This is my favorite software program for keeping track of…
