As the international job market and world wide web continue to expand, it only makes sense that individuals looking for meaningful and lucrative work have more job options outside the classic nine to five schedule. Working at home has become increasingly popular, since it allows people to design their own schedule in the midst of their busy lives. Working parents and freelancers especially have benefited from the online option.
Michael Haaren and Christine Durst wrote Work at Home Now: The No-nonsense Guide to Finding Your Perfect Home-based Job, which unveils a community of ‘teleworkers’ and guides potential distance workers towards legitimate options. Durst has appeared in multiple media outlets as “America’s ultimate work-at-home expert.” Her wide success is a tribute to a recent spike in interest in work-at-home career paths.
There are a host of famous people who work from home. Richard Branson, the billionaire chairman of Virgin Group, has publicly stated that he has never worked out of an office, and he never plans to. He recently wrote in his blog, “we like to give people the freedom to work where they want, safe in the knowledge that they have the drive and expertise to perform excellently, whether they are at their desk or in their kitchen.” Other notable successful people who work from home are Craigslist’s Craig Newmark, The Oatmeal’s Matt Inman, and Amazon’s star engineer James Hamilton; the latter works from a boat and is in charge of Amazon’s 4.5 billion dollar tech infrastructure business!
