If you take a home job working for somebody else you are likely to find that there are times when you are frantically busy and times when there is no work at all. This is because many companies use their home workers as a source of casual labor when they have more than their permanent staff can handle. It is rare to find work from home opportunities that offer a set number of hours every week.
You can build a good reputation for yourself it you are flexible and work when it’s offered. If you can show you are reliable, then you will probably find that after a while, you get to pick and choose your jobs a little more.

You will then find it easier to to work in a way that will bring in money – not just sitting there checking your email all day. If you don’t have work one day, then you can spend that day looking for more work from home opportunities.
One of the problems that people who want to make money working online at home face is that friends and family members often forget the ‘working’ part and think that they can call you any time. You may be at their beck and call to join them for a meal or a shopping expedition. They might even get upset or insulted when you explain that you are working. This needs to be handled sensitively if you want to keep your friends.
It can be difficult to motivate yourself when you work at home. You have to be very disciplined. Working at home on your own at home can feel very isolating. Not having that contact with other people that you would get with a regular job. If you think that this will be a problem then you might be better looking for a customer support or market research job that can be done from home.
