The three sections of the book deal with home jobs, home businesses, and freelancing (which is really a home business but the authors make it a separate section because in it they cover stuff that only pertains to freelancers like which job boards to use when looking for work, how to document your freelance relationships, how to price your services, etc.).
They cover all kinds of stuff I've never seen in another book like what employers hire home-based staff, what they pay, and how to get a job with them. The give specific instructions for how to convince your boss to let you work from home (and offer other special book-buyer-only samples on their web site at [...] They lay out what ought to be in a freelance contract and how to make sure you get paid for your work. And they offer a neat way of coming up with web-based business ideas and then show you how to go about figuring out if they make sense.
I was so sick of being taken by work at home scams (which they cover in depth in the book) that I was reluctant to buy yet another book about working from home. So I read who some of the people were that gave jacket endorsements and then I went to their web site and saw that they've been quoted in all kind of legit places like the Harvard Business Review, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and lots of other. I concluded that these guys are the real deal and now, having read the book, I can say I was right.
As I read the book I felt like I was reading a high school research paper written by an honors junior or maybe a senior. I won't say the book is comprehensive, but it does cover a lot of ground. It not only covers working from home as someone else's employee, but also covers self-employment from home, too. It probably would have been a better book if it had limited its scope to either W-2 or self-employment, but not both.
Although in this Internet Age that we live in it is possible to work from home as someone's employee, in reality most employers don't trust letting their workers work at home. And when they do it is usually on an hourly basis where work productivity is fairly easy to monitor. I'm not a fan of virtual assistants (VA). The work those people do is usually worth so much more than what they are paid to do. I always recommend to my SCORE clients to avoid being a VA and instead be an online consultant of some kind. Chapter 14 regarding teaching & tutoring was much more up my alley, but I think the authors were kind of shortsighted. They should have included consulting and coaching in this chapter, too. And Chapter 16 regarding writers was shortsighted, too. Writing as a freelancer is OK. But what about being an infopreneur? Selling information is where it is at today.Read more ›
