Work From Home Reality

work from homeWhen I tell people I work from home, I get responses that range from “I wish I could do that” to “I could never do that”.

Typically, I like to talk with that first group because I can teach them how to do it if they really want to learn. The next group? Well, there isn’t really much to talk about.

A recent article on revealed that working from home is growing in popularity at a starting rate.

“Global Workplace Analytics, an organization that studies and promotes flexible work situations and telecommuting, reports that telecommuting has grown almost 80% from 2005 to 2012 across sectors such as state government (122% growth), non-profit (87%), for-profit (70%) and local government (62%).”

So, I got to wondering about the different types of industries, other than direct selling or affiliate marketing, where people can work from home.

Here is what I found:

Writers work from home.
Consultants work from home.
Customer Service Reps work from home.
Sales representatives work from home.
Engineers work from home.
Account Executives and Managers work from home.
Software developers work from home.
Case Managers work from home.

This list could go on and on. Check the Forbes link above for more. My point is that working from home and telecommuting are growing in popularity.

The times, they are changing!

Maybe now is the time for you to consider working from home, either as a telecommuter or as a home based business professional.
