  • working at home

    noticed several posters either work at home or have spouses that do
    did you negotiate with your bosses to work from home, or the job lends itself to working at home, or do you have your own business?

    wish my husband could negotiate one or two days home but they have too many meetings now, the place has changed

    I work from home but it is something I was able to negotiate after many years of experience. Although my company did not want to hire somebody who couldn't be in the office, I just sold myself as worth it to them. After getting the job, I made sure that my not being in the office didn't impact my work or the ability for others to work with me. Working from home is something that you have to work for. It is very unlikely when you are at the earlier part of your career.

      I am a published writer and do all my writing at home, obviously. I still have a part-time office job but writing is my passion. It does take discipline but is worth the effort.

        What have you had published? Articles in magazines, journals? If books.....ebook, or paperback?
        Do you have a writer website and go to events to sell your books?

          Well, I write poetry and have my work published on a popular website PoemHunter.com. I have had a number of poems put into print by United Press. I have two books available on Amazon. They are "Autumn Rain: Stories For The Broken Hearted" and "The Escape Collection: A Selection Of Short Stories". This IS NOT SPAM however. People do seem to enjoy reading my work, which is wonderful. Anyhow, that's my plug! LOL.
