Balancing Working from Home with Family

Working from home can be challenging, especially when you are balancing work with the needs of your family. The very same reasons we begin working from home, are also those that can cause conflict. When I began working from home it was only part time one day per week. that was the easy part.  As I advanced to exclusive telecommuting the challenges became apparent. You must establish ground rules for yourself and your family. If you work a fixed schedule that requires phone work, go in your office and close the door. If you don’t have an office, remember you need a quite space. Your employer is likely going to require it, and you are going to need to be free of distraction. If you have small children at home, it’s best to work when they are sleeping or under someone else’s care. Babies are going to cry, toddlers are going to get into things, and unless you can start and stop what you’re doing, it is simply not going to work. Older children can make things a bit easier, they can fend for themselves for a few hours or they might be in school. Older children can be much nosier too. The important thing is everyone needs to remember that the parent is working, not just surfing the web. If you work several non-phone jobs like I do, it can be both rewarding and challenging at the same time. I can work at 5:00 in the morning, midnight or anywhere in between. It can be tempting to try to work all the time, because the more you work the more you earn. Then your family and personal life can suffer. I recommend one full day per week off. Don’t even turn on that computer. Don’t forget to exercise and take breaks away from your computer. Work related injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and many others are very real medical conditions. Be sure to have a good chair and adequate arm support if you are doing a lot of keyboarding. I had some back problems for a while until I realized that my big comfy chair was not providing adequate support. Now I sit up straight and have arm rests that provide true arm support. Most importantly don't neglect non-computer soical activities.  Meet the gals or guys for lunch, go for a walk in the park, take the kids out for pizza, just get out of the house.  Spouses may need reminders that you are actually working; it can be tempting for a spouse to say since you’re home anyway, take the car in for maintenance, and plan a special dinner for the relatives. Now this is certainly easier than when you worked in the B&M world, but if you’re working FT hours which many of us do, then spouses need to remember they still have to help out. The important key that has worked for me is open communication and flexibility with everyone. If everyone is committed to this it will work out just fine. How wonderful to have the flexibility of meeting your children at the bus stop, chaperoning a field trip, or just being able to work in a pair of flip flops.

Work at Home Tips for the Disabled

Many years back when I began my career in New York City in the B & M world, I had the pleasure of befriending a disabled person. I’ll call her Cassandra (pseudonym) which is Greek and means female warrior. Cassandra was blind; she was a transcriptionist for a major insurance company. She with her trusty dog and cane commuted to work each day by train. She navigated the streets, stairs, elevators, and masses of people in midtown Manhattan. She truly was a warrior. Now, many years later, as I work from home, and my husband is newly disabled, I ponder how much easier Cassandra’s career would have been if she could have had the advantage of working from home.

So for those with disabilities here’s a short guide. First and foremost, check with your case manager, disability policy and your doctor to ensure you are able to work. . For further questions here is a link to ADA facts Now you can begin your search and if necessary training. Some excellent sources for disabled individuals to find training and assistive technology are: can help w/training and job search  -- A network for disabled persons seeking employment, many job leads here.

Now that you have your training, ok to work from your case manager, here are some companies that only hire disabled individuals:

• One agency that offers work from home jobs to the disabled is the National Telecommuting Institute (NTI) a non-profit organization that provides a wealth of services. Most of their jobs are customer service, technical support and some transcription. They have a host of companies they represent from HSN, IRS, and AAA auto club.  provides quality control and or call monitoring for various organizations

Good luck with your search and return to a career. Be sure to stop back or email me to share your success stories.

Let's celebrate Home Sourcing

Cigna healthcare will be closing its’ Fort Scott, Kansas office and transitioning their claims examiners to a work at home environment. Management stated most employees were pleased, but unfortunately some jobs would not transition well to a WAH environment. Here’s the news story.

This is sad news for the employees who are losing their jobs, and I wish them all well. It is good news for the WAH professional to see more companies seeking the cost saving benefits of a WAH staff.  Even further good news that many of Cigna’s employees can make the switch.  It is much better to see our home grown companies attempting cost saving solutions to keep jobs here instead of outsourcing overseas. Let’s promote home sourcing.

Seasonal or temporary jobs -- why should you apply?

Why bother interviewing or training for a seasonal position? The answer is it can be easy, and a good opportunity to get your foot in the door for a telecommuting position. The training can be fast paced, intense, and a sink or swim attitude. If you are sharp, and a go getter this may be just what you’re looking for. Just like retail establishments gear up for the busy holiday seasons, other industries do the same. Some examples are: education, standardized tests are coming up or started, someone needs to score them; tax day (eek, just around the corner) and even flowers for mother’s day. The great thing about seasonal jobs is the demand can be heavy, they may hire you for 25 hours a week and you can wind up working 50, and I did that one season with an education company. It was a fun job and I made excellent money. So check these companies out today:  -- not currently hiring, but site advises to send info or you can just keep checking back.
