More people are working from home than ever before. This is a trend that I expect to continue, as with the advent of newer and better technology, it is no longer necessary to be physically present in order to complete most jobs. You’re always going to have to be present for your healthcare and service jobs, but most office and clerical type work can be performed from anywhere that has an internet connection. Here are the reasons why more people are doing this.

  •  It’s cheaper and easier- Your commute consist of walking to and from your own home office.
  • It allows more flexibility– You can basically set your own schedule (in most cases) and write your own paychecks.
  • It makes alot more sense- Think about it would you as an employer rather pay someone just for putting in time even if they completed their work hours ago? Or would you rather pay them per assignment? As an employee wouldn’t you rather just finish your work and call it a day? Or would you rather hang around the office bored out of your mind looking for something, anything to do to look busy and productive?

So whether you are looking to Telecommute/Contract with companies or start your own Home Based Business, the fact remains that the times have changed and they aren’t changing back.
