How to make money working from home
More than three million people already work from home and this figure is expected to rise sharply in the coming years. Employers are encouraging staff to work more from home in order to cut costs, and home is now the most popular place to start a new business.
Work from Home is a practical, down-to-earth guide to getting the best from working from home, published by How To Books. It fills the gap for a book that looks at home working as a subject in its own right, and tackles the undoubted emotional and psychological demands of home working, which are not usually covered in articles in print and on the internet.
20 years home working experience
Author Judy Heminsley has worked from home for over 20 years. She started, grew and sold on a cleaning business from her back bedroom in Bath, helped her partner to run his training and coaching practice, and has been employed as a home-based business adviser to small businesses.
She runs the website workfromhomewisdom.com which provides information for home workers including a free downloadable report The 6 Secrets of Overcoming Isolation When Working from Home. She helps homeworkers one-to-one over the phone with productivity and motivation, and runs talks and workshops on the benefits of home working.
Home workers are hard on themselves
Judy noticed from her own experience and that of the many home businesses she dealt with as a business adviser that home workers tend to be very hard on themselves. ‘We assume that any difficulties we face are personal failings, that we lack discipline, are easily distracted and prone to procrastination,’ she says. ‘But working in the same place as you live creates its own challenges, and I wanted to make home workers aware of this and offer some solutions.’
Case studies from successful home workers
As well as drawing on her own experiences, Judy spoke to more than 50 home workers all over the country, in both rural and city locations, in all kinds of industries, from sales to B&B, from bookkeepers to craftsmen, and asked about the challenges they had faced.
