I think almost everybody can start working at home instantly. The big question is that can we compete with others and make a living with it. It is very important that we gear up with the basic skills and requirements so that we can have a good start. Once things get started we still have to keep on learning and updating ourselves to keep up with changes. As long as there are demands on our service, the money making opportunities will be there.
I always recommend people to go from being an employee then move on to self-employed. It will be best to keep a day job while working on the personal money making opportunities. Once the self-employed business started to bloom and making more money than your regular day job, then only consider going full time. If you’re doing the same work as when you’re working for others, perhaps you can get some business or work from your former employer. Those days that you’re an employee certainly has some customers or business connection which you can make use of after going solo. That’s what I call make full use of the things that you’ve learn while you’re working for others. In other words, work as if you’re going to work for yourself one day.
One reason that I encourage people to work at home because sooner or later you’ll reach the age of retirement, once that happen you’ll have to find some other job or things to do. If you prepare yourself to work at home and doing freelance work, you’ll still able to do the things that you’re good at. In fact you might make more money than before. Making lots of money and retired without having anything to do is not quite the life that I like.
