When you find a company that hires you as an employee, it is a great find since the company will withhold all of the taxes and may offer benefits like health insurance, retirement plans and other perks.
There are many benefits to working at home when raising a family. The jobs may have flexible hours, working in the evening and nights so you do not have to pay for a nursery school or babysitting, saving money on lunches, clothing, gas, and parking. Have more family time is a huge benefit. If you have flexible hours, you may be able to work when the kids are at school and add a few hours after they go to bed.
Those of us that work from home like to have several “eggs” or jobs in our basket. If one of our jobs slows down or closes, we have other jobs that we can pick up that will immediately help make up the difference in pay. Some of the eggs that we pick up may be quick, fun jobs that we can do without taxing our brains if we have been working intensely for several hours. As you find new work, you may remove an egg from the basket and put in another one that is better pay, better hours, or a job that you just like better.
