Blogging & Business

I hate that I haven't been blogging much lately, but seriously ya'll-I've been swamped. We had Thanksgiving, then we were all sick for almost two weeks. Add that to the fact that I've been working to start my own business and I'm lucky I have time to pee, let alone blog. I miss it a lot. I miss you guys! Hopefully things will settle down soon and I'll be able to get back here as often as I once did.

Speaking of my business, let me pick your brains a little before I rush off to get some work done-how many of you would be interested in working from home? If all goes as planned I may be in the market to hire people to work from home. I can't go into too many specifics right now, but it wouldn't involve selling anything or phone work at all-it's just computer work. You'd be an independent contractor which means that you wouldn't get any benefits and you'd have to pay your own taxes...and it is very detail oriented, and requires a broad internet knowledge and great analytical skills...but you'd get to work from home at your own pace on your own schedule within the hour requirements. My plan is to offer full time and part time-so either 80 or 160 hours a month-at $9/hr and pay once monthly. Is that something that anyone would be interested in? What are your thoughts/suggestions? Remember, nothing is concrete right now, just a direction I might go if everything pans out.

I'll be posting as much as I can and, hopefully, I'll get back to doing more blogging (and more blog reading!) very soon.

Sounds like you are busy! The new job prospect sounds interesting. I work from home now and have been tossing around the idea of going back to retail part time since it's getting a little tight around here. I'd love to do anything to be home with my boys as much as possible!
Best of luck with everything!!

Intriguing! I work outside of the home so I wouldn't be able to help you out. Good luck...can't wait to hear all about it!

Hmmmm... well, who isn't curious after that post?? I'm down to do some more work from home, since right now my "work" involves a mommy newsletter and building my website, and said "work" is lacking in said "pay."

Good luck with your new venture!

Well you know how tech savvy I am so THAT would be money down a rat hole! But I wish you happy luck and am glad you're nearly up and running! :)
