Work From Home Tips

Resources, Tips & Advice to help you start, and run, your own business from home


Work-From-Home-Tips aims to give you inspiration and ideas by looking at many of the work from home jobs available and showing how it is possible to be your own boss and earn a full-time income working from home.

Working from home for yourself can be a very rewarding and fulfilling way to earn a living but the prospect of giving up a secure job with a regular paycheque can be very daunting. The aim of this website is to give practical tips, advice and inspiration showing how you can make a success of working from home.

So why do people want to work from home? Some are fed-up and bored with the 9 to 5 rat race and yearn for the independence and flexible hours they can work by becoming self-employed. Some simply want to earn just a little extra money part-time to supplement their regular income. Others find through circumstances (perhaps by becoming a single parent, or because of illness) working from home is their only practical option for earning money. Whatever your reason for wanting to work from home I hope to give you inspiration and ideas to help you turn your dreams into reality.

Personally, if your circumstances allow it, I strongly favour the start slow, low risk, approach allowing you to successfully build up your work-from-home business slowly over time until you are ready to take the plunge and launch into it full-time. Although I will touch on some franchise opportunities with which you can start earning a reasonable income from home right from the day you start most of the methods I will touch on need you to build up a customer base over a period of time.  However these “slow start” schemes are ideal if you currently only have a few hours each week available, or feel you need time to build up confidence to launch into full-time self-employment.

The aim of this website is to share practical ideas, tips and advice, and review the resources and opportunities available, to help people earn a living by working from home. I share my own experiences and touch on important, but often neglected, practical subjects such as how to register as self-employed with HM Revenue & Customs as well as very down-to-earth subjects such as choosing and opening a business bank account.

I live in the UK so the work-from-home advice I give in this website is biased towards people who are also living within the United Kingdom but many of the ideas I put forward are universal and may still be of interest to people living elsewhere.

You will notice that, where possible, I have, within the text of each webpage, included clickable links to most of the websites I mention so as to save you time looking them up. I have also included a quick reference list to resources and useful websites on my USEFUL LINKS page.
