Everything essential for making the most of business from home

Written from firsthand experience and supported with interviews of successful work-from-home individuals across a variety of circumstances, this handbook is a thorough and thoughtful resource on generating an income outside of the traditional office environment. The author scrutinizes every aspect of working from home, dividing the guide into two parts: working from home for an employer and starting a home-based business. Offering a checklist of pros and cons in addition to realistic advice that takes into full account the limitations that may arise in any given situation, the book tackles everything from logistics to legality—including understanding tax forms, setting up a work space, staying motivated, succeeding with self-marketing, and basic accounting aid. The book also provides helpful advice for seeking a job, creating a winning resume, and nailing the interview as well as avoiding scams and rip-offs.
