When I first wanted to work at home, I read books and articles to teach me what was involved and what I had to do. The materials that I found really helpful were the true-life stories of people who were successfully working at home. It was one thing to have theories and steps, but to read about the experiences, pitfalls and other tips people gave was most inspiring and helpful.
In the 1990s the amount of information and number of people working at home was much leaner than it is now. Today, you’re overwhelmed by the blogs, books, articles and more that talk about how to find a work-at-home job, begin freelancing or start a business. And because of that, some of the best information you can get is from others who have gone before you.
People who already work at home can share how they determined the best work-at-home option for them, provide the steps they took to get started, list the challenges along the way, and confess what they wished they’d done differently. And you, as a work-at-home wannabe, can learn from their journey. Through them you can shorten your learning curve, anticipate and overcome problems, and avoid pitfalls.
Work-At-Home Success regularly shares the success stories of average, every day people who turned their dream of working at home into a reality. These people share with you how they chose their idea, how they got started, what their day is like, what they wish they’d known when they started, and much more. Their stories are here to help you reach work-at-home success as well.
