"Perfect freedom is reserved for the man who lives by his own work and in that work does what he wants to do." (R.G. Collingwood)
If you yearn to work on your own either part-time or full-time, pay attention to your dreams. They tell you a lot about what you like (and don't like) to do.
Some of you may long to write, like we always had. Andy took the plunge from a banking career into publishing, starting a business at his dining room table and growing it so that it eventually moved to larger quarters and employed a dozen full-timers. Although Andi has been working solo for years, her office has graduated from the dining room table in her apartment to a room all its own in her house.
No matter what kind of work you dream of doing, take time to do wishful thinking/constructive daydreaming. Keep a journal and write down your thoughts for at least five minutes every day. To help you take inventory of your skills, likes, and dislikes, read "What Color Is Your Parachute?" by Richard Nelson Bolles (Ten Speed Press, 1998). To help you decide if self-employment is for you, see our quiz on pages 12 to 21 in "Launching Your Home-Based Business" (Upstart Publishing Company, 1998). BACKCOVER: Sure, you love working at home. You set your own hours, call clients in your pajamas, and never have to share your candy with coworkers. But with your independence comes a whole new set of problems bookkeeping, taxes, interruptions from kids and neighbors that can send your stress level soaring. And it's hard to leave your troubles at the office when your desk doubles as your kitchen table. That's why bestselling business authors David H. Bangs, Jr. and Andi Axman have collected timeless work-at-home advice from everyone from Aristotle to Albert Einstein. Each quotation whether inspirational, practical, or simply hilarious is followed by tips and ideas for getting the most out of working at home. Tips cover the wide range of subjects home workers encounter, from drumming up business and managing an erratic work flow to reducing interruptions (and knowing when to welcome them) and learning to nurture your customers, your business, and yourself.
Whether you're a freelancer, telecommuter, virtual office occupant, or owner of a home-based business, "Work at Home Wisdom" is the perfect pick-me-up. It'll brighten a stressful day, cast new light on a problem, and remind you why working at home is as rewarding as you always thought it would be. AUTHORBIO: David H. "Andy" Bangs, Jr. is the founder of Upstart Publishing and author of several small business bestsellers, including "The Business Planning Guide," now in its eighth edition.
