Work-At-Home Success Profile: Janet Scarborough Civitelli-Coaching You Towards Your Dream Career


Janet Scarborough Civitelli is a career coach who helps clients to choose, change, or advance their careers.

1) How did you get started working from home? 

I spent many years in jobs with long commutes of up to three hours per day. I also moved several times when I had thriving businesses and then I had to start them all over again in the new city. I finally became smarter and decided to start a location independent consulting company. This means no more commuting and no more geographic restrictions.

2) How did you choose the work-at-home career you do? 

I was already a psychologist and a specialist in career development. The new part was learning how to migrate the business model from face-to-face meetings to virtual ones.

3) How did you get started (basic initial steps)? 

I advertised my company on my website and told a lot of people what services I offer.

4) How did you get your first client or customer or job? 

Blogging has been the best marketing strategy. I write about career decision-making, career change, job search, and workplace psychology.

5) How do you market your business? 

Networking and writing.

6) What does your usual day look like? 

About 1/3 marketing and writing, 1/3 research and reading, and 1/3 meeting with clients.

7) What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started? 

I wish I started telecommuting much sooner. I also wish I had written more books earlier in my career but I plan to make that more of a priority now.

8) What advice would you give someone who wants to work from home? 

Choose work that is compatible with working-from-home and then commit to finding or creating a niche that works well for you.
