Would You Consider Working From Home?

Would You Consider Being An HR Consultant Who Works From Home?

 

If you work for an organization, what would make you consider working from home? 

Have you ever thought of taking your special skills and talent and working for yourself vs. for an organization?  People are either very happy working for someone else and would never consider working on their own or they have thought about it and considered working on their own, but worry about not having the security of a paycheck.

Those individuals who work at home love it and would never consider going back to work for an organization.

I have done both, I have worked for organizations for almost thirty years.  One day I had a life changing event.  This caused me to make numerous changes in my life and Consulting from home was one of them.

I am one of those individuals who thought about working from home but hadn't taken that plunge because I feared not having the security of a paycheck.  But since I had this life changing event, the decision was made for me and now I fit in to the working from home classification.

This is not an easy transition, if I had been able to plan it out, things may have been a lot easier.  It has been a rough and rocky road, and still is, but I know it will all come together with time, determination, and hard work.

Don't ever be afraid to ask others for help if you don't know something.  There are people out there who will help.  The biggest mistake you can make is being afraid to admit that you don't know it all.

Find your niche that will set you apart from others, target that niche market, and make the services you offer unique.  Make sure you set up your website, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and Google + accounts in order to assist you in marketing and forming your brand.

Have faith in yourself, don't give up, stay focused, follow-up and be consistent.  You can make it work you just have to want it bad enough!

Just my thoughts!  Your comments are welcomed!

Hi my name is Rhonda Knisley (Nicely). I am a Mom to a beautiful daughter and I have a sweet dog too. I love to cook, read, and learn new things. Friendship is important to me, and I must say, I have friends who are priceless.I have been in the profession of Human Resources for almost thirty years, the majority of those years were spent working in health care, as a Director of Human Resources. I had a life changing event that caused me to have to leave my job (long story). Due to that occurrence, I decided to start my own business. I have the knowledge and expertise in Human Resources, so why not use it. I offer services to individuals and small businesses remotely/virtually. My goal is to help them to meet all of their Human Resources needs, whether small or large.I want to also mentor others who are interested in Human Resources. At some point down the road, I would like to form a partnership with a community. The partnership would help young adults who have graduated from college, get jobs. Employers would provide training and pay an entry-level wage until the training is completed. Once the training is completed, the employer will then increase the rate to what they would pay someone who has had training. I think this plan would work and be mutually beneficial to everyone involved.We have to help one another. Where would we be if that person who helped us out, didn't care enough to do so? I would love to form collaboration with other individuals, by combining our services. In doing so, we would be able to offer them a great package. Please let me know if you are interested.I look forward to making new friends and business associates here, on Project Eve.
